ASAP.com, the On-Demand Delivery Brand for Waitr Holdings Inc., Reports Third Quarter 2022 Results

November 9, 2022

LAFAYETTE, La.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 9, 2022-- ASAP.com, the on-demand delivery brand for Waitr Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: WTRH) (“ASAP” or the “Company”), today reported financial results for the third quarter of 2022.

Third Quarter 2022 Highlights

  • Revenue for the third quarter of 2022 was $25.1 million, compared to $43.4 million for the third quarter of 2021. For the nine months ended September 30, 2022, revenue was $91.4 million, compared to $143.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. The decline in revenue was primarily a result of lower order volumes driven by the highly competitive environment of the delivery business, partially offset by revenue from our third-party payment processing referral services operations.
  • Net loss for the third quarter of 2022 was $73.5 million, or a loss of $0.40 per share, compared to net income of $12.3 million in the third quarter of 2021, or $0.09 per share. Net loss for the third quarter of 2022 included a $53.9 million non-cash goodwill impairment charge mainly due to the continued decline in our stock price and market capitalization through September 30, 2022. Net income for the third quarter of 2021 included a $16.7 million adjustment for the change in estimate of a medical contingency.
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 for the third quarter of 2022 was a loss of $4.7 million, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $3.1 million for the third quarter of 2021. Approximately $0.5 million of the loss for the third quarter of 2022 is from an increase to an insurance reserve.
  • As of September 30, 2022, cash on hand was $20.1 million.
  • As of September 30, 2022, approximately 2,900 merchants are using third-party payment processing services referred by ASAP, an increase of approximately 80% through the nine months ended September 30, 2022.

1Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. A reconciliation of GAAP net (loss) income to Adjusted EBITDA is included in the “Non-GAAP Financial Measure/Adjusted EBITDA” table below.

Macroeconomic factors, including inflation, higher gas prices and competition, continued to impact our markets and order volumes during the third quarter of 2022. In response, we have focused our efforts on certain initiatives to improve revenue, operating income and cash positions, including our comprehensive rebranding, consolidation of our technology platforms into a single application and cost reductions where appropriate.

In August 2022, we initiated our rebranding initiative and introduced our new “deliver anything ASAP” business model, expanding our food-delivery services to a broader array of products. Among our new business expansions is the Company’s proprietary in-stadium ordering technology, which allows fans to avoid the typical long lines at stadium concession areas. We have secured exclusive in-stadium mobile ordering agreements with MetLife Stadium, the New York Giants, the New York Jets, the New Orleans Saints, the University of Alabama, and Louisiana State University. Additionally, we secured a mobile ordering agreement with the Florida Panthers, the first arena deal for the Company with a National Hockey League team. During the third quarter of 2022, we also entered into a partnership with FoodBoss, an industry leading online food delivery search engine. In 2022, our traditional core payments business has more than doubled. We plan to continue to build on our ancillary revenue streams with the goal to diversify the Company beyond third-party food delivery, including offering merchant processing solutions.

On October 20, 2022, we reconvened our special meeting of stockholders, whereby the Company’s stockholders approved an amendment to the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation to effect a reverse stock split of Company common stock, within a set range, without reducing the authorized number of shares of Company common stock, if and when determined by the Company’s board of directors in its sole discretion.

On November 2, 2022, the board adopted resolutions approving the reverse stock split at a reverse stock split ratio of 1:20. It is expected that the reverse stock split will occur on or prior to 11:59 pm Eastern Time on November 21, 2022.

Trading of the Company’s common stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market is expected to continue on a split-adjusted basis as of the opening of trading hours on November 22, 2022. Additionally, in connection with the Company's previously announced rebranding, it is expected that the Company's common stock will begin trading on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the new trading symbol “ASAP.”

Third Quarter 2022 Key Business Metrics

  • Average Daily Orders were 14,156 for the third quarter of 2022 and 18,346 for the nine months ended September 30, 2022.
  • Active Diners as of September 30, 2022 were approximately 1.2 million.
  • Cash on hand was approximately $14.7 million as of November 3, 2022.

WAITR HOLDINGS INC.
NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURE
ADJUSTED EBITDA
(In thousands)
(Unaudited)

Adjusted EBITDA is not required by, nor presented in accordance with, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”). We define Adjusted EBITDA as net (loss) income adjusted to exclude interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense, goodwill impairment, stock-based compensation expense, (gain) loss on disposal of assets, intangible and other asset impairments, induced conversion expense related to Notes, change in fair value of contingent consideration liability, medical contingency change in estimate, acquisition transaction related expenditures and other non-recurring adjustments and accrued legal contingency and reserve. We use this non-GAAP financial measure as a key performance measure because we believe it facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period by excluding potential differences primarily caused by variations in capital structures, tax positions, the impact of acquisitions and restructuring, the impact of depreciation and amortization expense on our fixed assets, the impact of goodwill impairment and stock-based compensation expense and other items that do not reflect our core operations. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net (loss) income or other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of net (loss) income to Adjusted EBITDA is provided below:

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
ADJUSTED NET LOSS AND
ADJUSTED LOSS PER DILUTED SHARE
(In thousands, except share and per share data)
(Unaudited)

Adjusted net loss and adjusted loss per diluted share are not required by, nor presented in accordance with, GAAP. We define adjusted loss per diluted share as adjusted net loss divided by our weighted average common shares outstanding - diluted. Adjusted net loss is calculated as net loss plus goodwill impairment, induced conversion expense related to Notes, change in fair value of contingent consideration liability, medical contingency change in estimate, acquisition transaction related expenditures and other non-recurring adjustments and accrued legal contingency and reserve. We use these non-GAAP financial measures because we believe they facilitate period to period comparisons of operating performance, by excluding potential differences primarily caused by non-recurring items. Goodwill impairment, induced conversion expense related to Notes, change in fair value of contingent consideration liability, medical contingency change in estimate, acquisition transaction related expenses and accrued legal contingency and reserve are considered non-recurring items. Adjusted net loss and adjusted loss per diluted share are not measurements of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net loss or loss per share or other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of net (loss) income to adjusted net loss, along with adjusted loss per diluted share, is provided below:
