Message from the Founder and CEO, Marcio Kumruian:

The third quarter of 2018 marks an important turning point for Netshoes, as we took some decisive steps to streamline our operations and focus on our core B2C business in markets where we are better positioned to secure medium-term profitable growth.

As part of that strategy, we recently announced our decision to discontinue our B2B operations. This difficult but necessary step is a recognition that this diversification attempt generated lower than expected results. In order to minimize further negative results, we adjusted the margins of nutrition supplements products, accelerating sales through our B2C channel. This resulted in a provision of R$59.3 million in existing nutrition supplement inventory. In addition, we terminated our commercial agreement with Midway Labs, filed a lawsuit against them and recorded a provision of R$18.7 million for Midway receivables that may not be collected. This impacted our gross profit and adjusted EBITDA in the quarter, but we believe this discontinuation puts Netshoes on a sounder footing going forward.

In addition, in October we concluded the sale of our operations in Mexico. This will allow us to be even more focused on our core operations in Brazil, where we believe there is significant growth potential, as evidenced by our Q3 performance in those markets.

This quarter also saw us increase our financial flexibility with the successful completion of the renegotiation with banks of our working capital and debenture credit lines, increasing the original maturity of the contracts by one year, to 2021, and obtaining a 12-month grace period on principal amortization. With this renegotiation, the Company eliminated R$107.7 million in debt amortization through the first half of 2019 and brought short-term debt down to 5% of total debt, compared to 46% in 2Q-2018.

These important developments were accompanied by some further advances in our operations that attest to the strength of our underlying business. The number of active customers was up by double digits, to more than 6.7 million. Our net sales rose 0.5% and total GMV rose 5.5% on an FX neutral basis, with higher orders and average basket, reflecting the 48.1% year-on-year increase in marketplace GMV. Thanks to a strong reduction in working capital requirements, we generated a solid R$72.3 million in operating cash flow (without contribution from factoring arrangements).

We remain focused on executing our new strategy aimed at achieving profitability in our B2C online operations, and our teams are fully mobilized to deliver a strong Black Friday and Christmas period with a superior customer experience.

Our actions during the third quarter reaffirm our commitment to our renewed strategy, turning a page to continue to build our medium-term growth on a more solid foundation.

Operating Metrics

The Company’s business is organized into two segments: (1) Brazil, which consists of the B2C e-commerce operations of Netshoes (sporting goods) and Zattini (fashion), and the business-to-business (B2B) operation, mainly comprised of supplements sales (discontinued in 3Q-2018); and (2) International, which consists of the B2C e-commerce operation in Argentina.

Registered members (excluding Mexico) increased 18.2% year-on-year to 23.8 million in 3Q-2018. Active customers reached 6.7 million, up 11.6% year-on-year.

The shift of consumer purchasing habits to mobile devices has continued, with 58.1% of total orders placed from mobile devices in 3Q-2018, an 11.4 p.p. increase over 3Q-2017.

GMV from the B2C operation grew 7.4% year-on-year on an FX neutral basis in 3Q-2018 (3.7% on a reported basis), mainly driven by:

  • a 1.8% year-on-year increase in Netshoes Brazil GMV, mainly impacted by the strategic mix of product shift from 1P to 3P (products with lower margin or slower replacement cycle);
  • a 14.8% year-on-year increase in Zattini’s GMV, reflecting the success of the Company’s new strategy in fashion portfolio management.
    • Both Netshoes and Zattini showed GMV growth acceleration throughout the quarter:
GMV - YoY Growth   Jul-18   Aug-18   Sep-18   3Q-18 Netshoes Brazil (2.1)% 1.6 % 6.3 % 1.8 % Zattini (6.2)% 29.2 % 31.5 % 14.8 %
  • a 44.6% year-on-year increase (local currency) in Netshoes International GMV (Argentina operation), but down 0.4% on a reported basis, due to the strong FX impact.
  • In 3Q-2018, invoiced orders increased 4.4% year-on-year while average basket size increased 2.9% on an FX neutral basis.

As previously announced, in 3Q-2018 the Company discontinued its B2B operation dedicated to the sales of nutrition supplements and vitamins. GMV for the B2B operation amounted to R$4.2 million in 3Q-2018, down 70.4% year-over-year (impacting the consolidated Company’s growth by 1.8 p.p.).

Total consolidated GMV in 3Q-2018 was R$605.1 million, up 5.5% on an FX neutral basis and up 1.9% on a reported basis.

Marketplace GMV (Netshoes & Zattini in Brazil) amounted to R$78.5 million and accounted for 13.0% of total consolidated GMV (14.1% of GMV Brazil), an increase of 48.1% year-on-year. As of September 30, 2018, the Company’s total vendor base comprised 980 qualified third-party B2C vendors, an increase of 320 vendors year-on-year and an increase of 80 vendors over 2Q-2018.

Revenue

Consolidated net sales were R$417.8 million in 3Q-2018, a 3.2% decrease year-on-year (+0.5% on an FX neutral basis). Net sales in Brazil decreased 3.5% year-on-year to R$383.3 million.

Net sales for the International business (Argentina) in 3Q-2018 was R$34.5 million, up 45.6% year-on-year in local currency and up 0.3% on a reported basis.

Gross Profit

Gross profit in 3Q-2018 was R$36.8 million, compared to R$141.0 million in the same period last year. Gross margin was 8.8% in 3Q-2018, compared to 32.7% in 3Q-2017. During the quarter the ramp-up of the marketplace operation and other product margin-enhancing initiatives contributed 1.7 p.p. to gross margin, offset by the negative impact from the 1P categories the Company is shifting to the marketplace. However, management’s short-term actions aimed at turning around the operation and other non-operating impacts negatively affected gross margin by 26.2 p.p. These impacts were:

  • (19.9) p.p. due to the discontinuation of the B2B business;
  • (1.7) p.p. related to higher net shipping costs and other cost of sales, mainly affected by the acceleration of supplement sales through the Company’s B2C channel;
  • (1.8) p.p. due to lower tax benefits as a result of 2016 tax change (EC87) and to the shift of Zattini’s operation to the Barueri distribution center, resulting in higher tax charges to the P&L but allowing the use of R$70 million in tax credits over the next 15 months (estimated);
  • (2.2) p.p. impact from APV (Adjustment to Present Value) as a direct result of the Company’s adjustments in procurement activities to reduce inventory levels and hyperinflation accounting adjustment in Argentina.

Despite some of the temporary negative impacts on margins, the Company’s gross product margin has started to show a positive evolution throughout 3Q-2018, reflecting the improvements made in inventory planning, commercial negotiations and pricing policies. These improvements are still mostly concentrated in fashion, as Zattini has a shorter procurement cycle.

It is important to highlight that the improvements in product margin in Fashion, approximately 6 p.p. from July to September, are accompanied by an acceleration in GMV growth at Zattini. (as described above).

Gross Product Margin – B2C Brazil   Jul   Aug   Sep   3Q Year 2017 31.8% 34.2% 33.2% 33.0% Year 2018 32.4% 33.9% 34.5% 33.6%

Operating Expenses

Operating expenses, net of depreciation and amortization, were R$149.3 million in 3Q-2018, 6.1% lower than 3Q-2017. As a percentage of net sales, operating expenses were 35.7%, compared to 36.8% in 3Q-2017. During the quarter the discontinuation of the nutrition supplement B2B business impacted operating expenses by R$5.1 million or 1.2 p.p.

Selling and marketing expenses, net of depreciation and amortization, decreased 13.5% year-on-year in 3Q-2018 to R$110.2 million, representing 26.4% of net sales compared to 29.5% of net sales in 3Q-2017. This decrease was mainly because of a lower allowance for doubtful accounts expenses and lower chargeback expenses, partially offset by the already mentioned R$5.1 million expenses related to the discontinuation of the B2B business.

General and administrative expenses, net of depreciation and amortization, were R$35.2 million in 3Q-2018, 15.8% higher in comparison to 3Q-2017, representing 8.4% of net sales, versus 7.1% of net sales in 3Q-2017. This increase is mainly related to higher SOP, consulting and layoff expenses, most of them being one-off expenses.

Adjusted EBITDA and Net Loss

Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA was a negative R$112.5 million in 3Q-2018 (-26.9% Adj. EBITDA margin) compared to negative R$17.9 million in 3Q-2017 (-4.2% Adj. EBITDA margin). This result was due to negative R$84.2 million from the B2B operations, negative R$21.1 million from the Brazilian B2C and Holding operations and negative R$7.2 million from the Argentina operations.

  • Adjusted EBITDA for the Brazilian operation in 3Q-2018 was a negative R$100.3 million (-26.2% Adj. EBITDA margin), which includes the R$84.2 million negative result from the B2B operations and R$16.1 negative result from the B2C operations. The negative R$16.1 million result from B2C operations includes negative R$7.3 million from Midway sales through B2C, negative R$5.3 million from Adjustment to Present Value (APV) and negative R$4.2 million from higher sales taxes in Zattini’s migration to Barueri distribution center.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the International operation (Argentina only) in 3Q-2018 was a negative R$7.2 million (-20.9% Adj. EBITDA margin), compared to a negative R$4.5 million in 3Q-2017 (-13.1% Adj. EBITDA margin). In 3Q-2018, Adj. EBITDA was negatively impacted by a R$3.6 million non-cash effect of the hyperinflation accounting adjustment in Argentina.

Due to the above-mentioned effects, the consolidated net loss from continuing operations, which excludes Mexico, was R$136.6 million in 3Q-2018 (-32.7% net margin), compared to a net loss of R$43.5 million (-10.1% net margin) in 3Q-2017. Total impact from the B2B write-offs on Net Loss was R$78.0 million during the quarter, compared to R$14.7 million in 3Q-2017. Argentina hyperinflation adjustments in net loss in 3Q-2018 amounted to negative R$1.8 million.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

In 3Q-2018, the Company generated R$72.3 million in net cash flow from operating activities excluding the contribution from factoring arrangements (see table below). Considering the lower use of factoring arrangements, operating cash generation was R$30.4 million, reflecting mainly the R$51.5 million improvement in working capital. In comparison to 3Q-2017, the Company recorded a R$16.1 million improvement in operating cash generation, or R$81.1 million without the contribution of the factoring arrangements.

As stated previously, management will continue to adjust factoring arrangements to run the business with available liquidity of around R$50 million. During the quarter, the lower use of the arrangements consumed R$41.8 million of operating cash flow, while in 3Q-2017 they generated R$23.1 million in operating cash flow.

Cash used in investing activities amounted to R$30.8 million in 3Q-2018 and was mainly related to the development of the Company’s information technology infrastructure. In 3Q-2017, cash used in investing activities amounted to R$8.3 million.

Cash used in financing activities amounted to R$14.9 million in 3Q-2018 compared to R$102.9 million in 3Q-2017 as a result of the successful debt renegotiation announced in early August 2018, extending the original maturity of the contracts by one year (to 2021) and establishing a 12-month grace period on principal amortization. This renegotiation eliminated R$107.7 million in debt amortization during the second half of 2018 and first half of 2019.

Consequently, the change in cash and cash equivalents resulted in a consumption of R$24.7 million in 3Q-2018 compared to a R$105.8 million consumption in 3Q-2017. Cash and cash equivalents as of September 30, 2018 were R$50.6 million, compared to R$310.6 million as of September 30, 2017.

It is important to highlight that neither the B2B write-off nor Argentina hyperinflation adjustments made in 3Q-2018 had any cash effect during the period.

In 3Q-2018, the Company’s net working capital cycle was 13 days, 32 days lower than in both 3Q-2017 and 2Q-2018. This reduction was mainly a result of the inventory write-off of R$59.3 million (18 days) related to the discontinuation of the B2B business and of the improved inventory management at both Netshoes and Zattini in Brazil (12 days).

As previously mentioned, in August 2018, the Company successfully completed the renegotiation with banks of its working capital and debenture credit lines, extending the original maturity of the contracts by one year (to 2021) and establishing a 12-month grace period on principal amortization. With this renegotiation, the Company eliminated R$107.7 million in debt amortization during the the second half of 2018 and the first half of 2019. As a result, as of September 30, 2018, 5% of total debt was short-term, compared to 46% in 2Q-2018.
