YogaWorks, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- YogaWorks, Inc. (NASDAQ:YOGA) (the “Company”), one of the largest providers of high quality yoga instruction in the U.S., today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017.

Rosanna McCollough, President and Chief Executive Officer of YogaWorks, stated, “Our second quarter results were in line with our expectations and we remain pleased with the progress in our business. Following our IPO, we have the capital in place and are well positioned, as the acquirer of choice within the large and highly fragmented yoga industry, to execute our growth plan of acquiring premier studios. In August, we completed the acquisition of two studios: our first in Virginia, in the city of Arlington, and one in the Dupont Circle neighborhood of Washington, D.C., extending our footprint in the D.C. area while leveraging our regional infrastructure.”

Ms. McCollough continued, “As we look ahead, we plan to drive growth primarily through acquisitions and have letters of intent signed to add 15 studios to our family. In addition, we remain focused on driving solid performance across our studio base through national and local marketing, localized programming, best-in-class teacher trainings and workshops as well as our online offering. We look forward to growing our business while helping people reach their personal goals of physical and mental well-being.”

Results for the Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2017

  June 30, 2017 June 30, 2016
GAAP Results    
Net revenue $12.5 million $13.3 million
Net loss $4.4 million $2.8 million
     
Non-GAAP Results(1)    
Adjusted EBITDA $(551,000) $(46,000)
Studio-Level EBITDA $2.2 million $2.6 million
Adjusted net loss $3.1 million $2.7 million

(1) Adjusted EBITDA, Studio-Level EBITDA and Adjusted net loss are non-U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) measures. For reconciliations to GAAP net loss, see "Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" accompanying this press release.

Net revenue was $12.5 million for the second quarter of 2017, a 6.3% decrease compared to $13.3 million for the second quarter of 2016. The decrease was primarily due to a larger portion of sales being classified as deferred revenue, which will be recognized as net revenue in future periods. The increase in deferred revenue in the second quarter as compared to the same period last year was principally the result of a sales mix shift from monthly memberships toward class packages, which were offered at all of our studios as of July 2016. The Company believes that offering class packages allows it to broaden the student base over time and better serve students overall.

The Company ended the quarter with 50 studios in six regional markets, with one closure and one opening since the quarter ended 2016.

Total cost of revenue and operating expenses for the quarter increased 5.6% to $16.7 million compared to $15.8 million for the second quarter of last year. This increase was primarily due to a $0.9 million accrual for a legal settlement.

Adjusted EBITDA was $(551,000) for the second quarter of 2017 compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $(46,000) for the same quarter last year. Adjusted net loss for the second quarter of 2017 was $3.1 million compared to Adjusted net loss of $2.7 million for the same period last year. For a reconciliation of GAAP net loss to Adjusted EBITDA and GAAP net loss to Adjusted net loss, please see “Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” accompanying this press release.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Highlights

Cash and cash equivalents were $3.5 million as of June 30, 2017, and $1.9 million as of December 31, 2016. The deferred revenue balance increased $0.6 million for the second quarter of 2017 compared to a $0.1 million increase during the second quarter of 2016.

Initial Public Offering

On August 16, 2017, the Company completed its initial public offering (“IPO”) of common stock at a price to the public of $5.50 per share. The Company issued 7,300,000 shares of common stock and received proceeds of $37.6 million, net of underwriting fees, but before offering costs of $2.1 million. The Company used $10.2 million of proceeds from the IPO to pay off debt and related interest and fees, resulting in net proceeds of approximately $27.4 million.

Guidance

For the third quarter of 2017, the Company expects net revenue between $12.7 million and $13.2 million and Adjusted EBITDA between $(0.3) million and $(0.8) million.

For fiscal 2017, the Company expects net revenue between $53.2 million and $54.2 million and Adjusted EBITDA between $(0.5) million and $(1.5) million. Net revenue for fiscal 2017 assumes the acquisition of 10 to 13 studios in the second half of the year.

Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains financial measures called Adjusted EBITDA, Studio-Level EBITDA and Adjusted net loss which are not calculated in accordance with GAAP. The Company uses these financial measures to understand and evaluate the business. Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental measure of the operating performance of the core business operations. Studio-Level EBITDA is a supplemental measure of the operating performance of the studios. Adjusted net loss is a supplemental measure of operating performance that is adjusted for certain non-recurring items that we do not believe directly reflect our core business operations. Accordingly, the Company believes Adjusted EBITDA, Studio-Level EBITDA and Adjusted net loss provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating the Company’s operating results in the same manner as management and the board of directors. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.
