Uber Announces Results for Third Quarter 2019

            

                

November 04, 2019                

                                 

                    

  Revenue of $ 3.8 billion, with growth accelerating to 30% year-over-year, or 31% on a constant currency basis

  Record Rides Adjusted EBITDA of $ 631 million, fully covering our Corporate G&A and Platform R&D

SAN FRANCISCO – (BUSINESS WIRE) – Uber Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: UBER) today announced financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2019.

“Our results this quarter decisively demonstrate the growing profitability of our Rides segment,” said Dara Khosrowshahi, CEO. “Rides Adjusted EBITDA is up 52% year-over-year and now more than covers our corporate overhead. Revenue growth and take rates in our Eats business also accelerated nicely. We’re pleased to see the impact that continued category leadership, greater financial discipline, and an industry-wide shift towards healthier growth are already having on our financial performance. ”

During the third quarter of 2019, following a number of leadership and organizational changes, we reorganized our operations and financial reporting into five segments. Our five operating and reportable segments are: Rides, Eats, Freight, Other Bets, and Advanced Technologies Group (“ATG”) and Other Technology Programs. We are providing Gross Bookings, Revenue, Adjusted Net Revenue, and Adjusted EBITDA for each segment. As a result of our reorganization and additional disclosure, we will no longer be showing Core Platform metrics. We are providing select historical segment information for 2018 and 2019 as well as reconciliations to Core Platform metrics in the supplemental information on our website (investor.uber.com) on page 10.

  Financial Highlights for Third Quarter 2019

  • Gross Bookings grew $ 3.7 billion year-over-year to $ 16 .5 billion, representing 29% year-over-year growth, or 32% on a constant currency basis.
  •   

  • Revenue growth accelerated to 30% year-over-year from 14 % in the second quarter of 2019.
  •   

  • Adjusted Net Revenue (“ANR”) growth accelerated to 33% year-over-year, or 35% on a constant currency basis as both Rides and Eats ANR take-rates improved quarter-over -quarter to .8% and 10 .7% , respectively.
  •   

  • Net loss attributable to Uber Technologies, Inc. of $ (1.2) billion, which includes $ 401 million in stock-based compensation expense, improved quarter-over-quarter in part due to revenue growth of $ 647 million.
  •   

  • Rides Adjusted EBITDA of $ 631 million was the Rides segment’s 8th positive Adjusted EBITDA quarter in a row and covered our Corporate G&A and Platform R&D of $ 623 million.
  •   

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $ (585) million improved $ 71 million quarter-over-quarter.
  •   

  • Unrestricted cash and cash equivalents were $ 12 .7 billion, which was up $ 0.9 billion from the second quarter of 2019 primarily due to the sale of $ 1.2 billion of senior unsecured notes and the closing of the $ 1.0 billion investment in ATG.

  Operating Highlights for the Third Quarter 2019

  Platform

  •     Updated Uber app to combine Rides, Eats and other offerings side-by-side – On September 27, we announced a new way to discover, access and experience the growing set of services available through our platform. You’ll now see our Rides, Eats and future offerings side-by-side. This app is currently testing in hundreds of U.S. and international cities.
  •   

  •     Grew consumer loyalty programs to 20 million subscribers– Uber Rewards, our consumer loyalty program, has 20 million global subscribers 6 months after US nationwide launch in May and a recent rollout in Brazil and Mexico. Meanwhile, the Rewards ecosystem continues to grow, with Rewards enrollees soon able to redeem points with featured Eats restaurant partners, including Ben & Jerry’s and select McDonald’s.
  •   

  •     Launched suite of subscription programs for Riders and Eaters– We now have a full suite of Rides, Eats, and JUMP e-bike and e-scooter subscription products available, including Uber Pass, with trip price protection and $ 0 delivery fee on Eats orders for consumers in selected cities. These options complement our other offering specific subscription products such as Ride Pass and Eats Pass.

  Rides

  •     Rides drove record level of engagement and Rides Adjusted EBITDA performance– Rides crossed $ 1 billion of weekly gross bookings during Q3 2019 and Rides Adjusted EBITDA was positive for the 8th quarter in a row. Rides segment performance was helped by higher margin Uber for Business growing over 65% YoY to $ 4.0 billion in annualized gross bookings. We advanced or maintained our already high Rides category position in our most important geographies.
  •   

  •     Rides premium products generated significant growth– Rides premium products, including Comfort and Black , continue to scale with 41% gross bookings growth globally and 53% growth in the US year-over-year. The higher margin profile of Comfort and Black helped to produce record Rides Adjusted EBITDA.
  •   

  •     Introduced new safety features –Uber’s investments in new safety features continue to raise the bar. These include recent launches such as: “Verify Your Ride”, on-trip reporting, and text to 911 as well as the expansion of RideCheck which can offer assistance when potential trip issues such as an unexpected long stop or crash are detected.

  Other Segments

  •     Eats expands restaurant product offerings– We are providing restaurants with greater distribution and consumers with alternative options. For example, we have launched pick up, which gives restaurants the ability to offer consumers an in-restaurant pick-up option, and an option for restaurants that want to utilize their own couriers. Lastly, we have deployed an over-the-top approach in select markets that enables rapid addition of restaurants to the platform by easing our on-boarding procedures for new restaurants.
  •   

  •     Freight grew its network to over 50, 00 0 carriers– Despite being only 2 years old, over 50, 00 0 carriers have used the Uber Freight app. Several of the top – 10 national carriers are already regular participants in our network and our shipper list includes several Fortune 50 customers. Freight load volume grew over 100% year-over-year.

  Corporate

  •     Funded Advanced Technologies Group with $ 1.0 billion– In July, we closed a $ 1.0 billion investment in ATG, which represents 14% ownership interest in ATG. The strategic partnership with Toyota and DENSO entered into in connection with their investment started in Q3 2019 with co-development already underway.
  •   

  •     Completed $ 1.2 billion Senior Notes Offering– In September, we successfully raised $ 1.2 billion in senior unsecured notes due 2027, bringing our unrestricted cash balance to $ 12 .7 billion as of the end of Q3 2019. We intend to use the proceeds from this offering primarily to fund a portion of the purchase price in connection with the closing of our pending acquisition of Careem Inc.

  Recent Developments

  •     Eats expansion into grocery via Cornershop acquisition– In October we agreed to acquire a majority stake in Cornershop, a leading provider of online grocery delivery in Chile and Mexico, and more recently in Peru and Toronto. The transaction is expected to close in the first half of 2020, subject to regulatory approval.

  Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our financial information, which is prepared and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”), we use the following non-GAAP financial measures: Adjusted Net Revenue; Rides Adjusted Net Revenue; Eats Adjusted Net Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA as well as revenue and Adjusted Net Revenue growth in constant currency. The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. We use these non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision-making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our performance by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of our recurring core business operating results.

We believe that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing our performance and when planning, forecasting, and analyzing future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management’s internal comparisons to our historical performance. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors both because (1) they allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision-making and (2) they are used by our institutional investors and the analyst community to help them analyze the health of our business.

There are a number of limitations related to the use of non-GAAP financial measures. In light of these limitations, we provide specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from these non-GAAP financial measures and evaluating these non-GAAP financial measures together with their relevant financial measures in accordance with GAAP.

For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the sections titled “Key Terms for Our Key Metrics and Non-GAAP Financial Measures,” “Definitions of Non-GAAP Measures” and “Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Measures” included at the end of this release.

  Key Terms for Our Key Metrics and Non-GAAP Financial Measures

      2018 Divested Operations.  We define 2018 Divested Operations as our operations in (i) Southeast Asia prior to the sale of those operations to Grab and (ii) Russia / CIS prior to the formation of our Yandex Taxi joint venture.

      Adjusted EBITDA.  We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss), excluding (i) income (loss) from discontinued operations, net of income taxes, (ii) net income (loss) attributable to non-controlling interests, net of tax, (iii) provision for (benefit from) income taxes, (iv) income (loss) from equity method investment, net of tax, (v) interest expense, ( vi) other income (expense), net, (vii) depreciation and amortization, (viii) stock-based compensation expense, (ix) certain legal, tax, and regulatory reserve changes and settlements, (x) asset impairment / loss on sale of assets, (xi) acquisition and financing related expenses, (xii) restructuring charges and (xiii) other items not indicative of our ongoing operating performance.

      Adjusted Net Revenue (“ANR”).  We define Adjusted Net Revenue as revenue less (i) excess Driver incentives and (ii) Driver referrals. We believe that Adjusted Net Revenue is informative of our top line performance because it measures the total net financial activity reflected in the amount earned by us after taking into account all Driver and restaurant earnings, Driver incentives, and Driver referrals. Adjusted Net Revenue is lower than revenue in all reported periods.

      Driver or restaurant earnings.  Driver or restaurant earnings refer to the net portion of the fare or the net portion of the order value that a Driver or a restaurant retains, respectively.

      Driver incentives.  Driver incentives refer to payments that we make to Drivers, which are separate from and in addition to the Driver’s portion of the fare paid by the consumer. For example, Driver incentives could include payments we make to Drivers should they choose to take advantage of an incentive offer and complete a consecutive number of trips or a cumulative number of trips on the platform over a defined period of time. Driver incentives are recorded as a reduction of revenue to the extent they are not excess Driver incentives (as defined below).

      Driver referrals.  Driver referrals refer to payments that we make to existing Drivers to refer new Drivers onto our platform. Driver referrals are recorded in sales and marketing expenses, as they represent the receipt of a distinct service of customer acquisition for which there is evidence of fair value.

      Excess Driver incentives.  Excess Driver incentives refer to cumulative payments, including incentives but excluding Driver referrals, to a Driver that exceed the cumulative revenue that we recognize from a Driver with no future guarantee of additional revenue. Cumulative payments to a Driver could exceed cumulative revenue from a Driver as a result of Driver incentives or when the amount paid to a Driver for a Trip exceeds the fare charged to the consumer. Excess Driver incentives are recorded in cost of revenue, exclusive of depreciation and amortization.

      Gross Bookings.  We define Gross Bookings as the total dollar value, including any applicable taxes, tolls, and fees, of Ridesharing and New Mobility rides, Eats meal deliveries, and amounts paid by shippers for Freight shipments, in each case without any adjustment for consumer discounts and refunds, Driver and restaurant earnings, and Driver incentives. Gross Bookings do not include tips earned by Drivers. Gross Bookings exclude the impact of our 2018 Divested Operations.

      Monthly Active Platform Consumers (“MAPCs”).  We define MAPCs as the number of unique consumers who completed a Rides or New Mobility ride or received an Eats meal on our platform at least once in a given month , averaged over each month in the quarter. While a unique consumer can use multiple product offerings on our platform in a given month, that unique consumer is counted as only one MAPC. MAPCs exclude the impact of our 2018 Divested Operations.

      Other Bets.  The Other Bets segment consists of multiple investment stage offerings. The largest investment within the segment is our New Mobility offering that refers to products that provide consumers with access to rides through a variety of modes, including dockless e-bikes and e-scooters. It also includes Transit, UberWorks and our Incubator group.

      Segment Adjusted EBITDA.  We define each segment’s Adjusted EBITDA as segment revenue less the following direct costs and expenses of that segment: (i) cost of revenue, exclusive of depreciation and amortization ; (ii) operations and support; (iii) sales and marketing; (iv) research and development; and (v) general and administrative. Segment Adjusted EBITDA also reflect any applicable exclusions from Adjusted EBITDA and excludes the impact of our 2018 Divested Operations.

      Segment Adjusted EBITDA margin.  We define each segment’s Adjusted EBITDA margin as the segment Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of segment Adjusted Net Revenue. Segment Adjusted EBITDA margin demonstrates the margin that we generate after direct expenses. We believe that each segment’s Adjusted EBITDA margin is a useful indicator of the economics of our segments, as it does not include indirect Corporate G&A and Platform R&D.

      Take Rate.  We define Take Rate as Adjusted Net Revenue as a percentage of Gross Bookings. For purposes of Take Rate, Gross Bookings include the impact of our 2018 Divested Operations.

      Trips.  We define Trips as the number of completed consumer Rides or New Mobility rides and Eats meal deliveries in a given period. Fo r example, an UberPOOL ride with three paying consumers represents three unique Trips, whereas an UberX ride with three passengers represents one Trip. Trips exclude the impact of our 2018 Divested Operations.

  Definitions of Non-GAAP Measures

We collect and analyze operating and financial data to evaluate the health of our business and assess our performance. In addition to revenue, net income (loss), loss from operations, and other results under GAAP, we use Adjusted Net Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA, as well as revenue and ANR growth rates in constant currency, which are described below, to evaluate our business. We have included these non-GAAP financial measures because they are key measures used by our management to evaluate our operating performance. Accordingly, we believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results in the same manner as our management team and board of directors. Our calculation of these non-GAAP financial measures may differ from similarly-titled non-GAAP measures, if any, reported by our peer companies. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as substitutes for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.

      Adjusted Net Revenue  

We define Adjusted Net Revenue as revenue less (i) excess Driver incentives and (ii) Driver referrals. We define Rides Adjusted Net Revenue as Rides revenue less (i) excess Driver incentives and (ii) Driver referrals. We define Eats Adjusted Net Revenue as Eats revenue less (i) excess Driver incentives and (ii) Driver referrals. Freight Adjusted Net Revenue, Other Bets Adjusted Net Revenue and ATG and Other Technology Programs Adjusted Net Revenue do not include excess Driver incentives or Driver referrals and are equal to GAAP net revenue in all periods presented. We believe that these measures are informative of our top line performance because they measure the total net financial activity reflected in the amount earned by us after taking into account all Driver and restaurant earnings, Driver incentives, and Driver referrals. Adjusted Net Revenue is lower than revenue in all reported periods.

Excess Driver incentives refer to cumulative payments, including incentives but excluding Driver referrals, to a Driver that exceed the cumulative revenue that we recognize from a Driver with no future guarantee of additional revenue. Cumulative payments to a Driver could exceed cumulative revenue from a Driver as a result of Driver incentives or when the amount paid to a Driver for a Trip exceeds the fare charged to the consumer. Further, cumulative payments to Drivers for Eats deliveries historically have exceeded the cumulative delivery fees paid by consumers. Excess Driver incentives are recorded in cost of revenue, exclusive of depreciation and amortization. Driver referrals are recorded in sales and marketing expenses. Management views Driver incentives and Driver referrals as Driver payments in the aggregate, whether they are classified as Driver incentives, excess Driver incentives, or Driver referrals.

These amounts largely depend on our business decisions based on market conditions. We include the impact of these amounts in Adjusted Net Revenue as it is useful to evaluate how increasing or decreasing incentives would impact our top line performance, and the overall net financial activity between us and our customers, which ultimately impacts our Take Rate.

Adjusted Net Revenue has limitations as a financial measure, should be considered as supplemental in nature, and is not meant as a substitute for revenue prepared in accordance with GAAP.

      Adjusted EBITDA  

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss), excluding (i) income (loss) from discontinued operations, net of income taxes, (ii) net income (loss) attributable to non-controlling interests, net of tax (iii) provision for (benefit from) income taxes, (iv) income (loss) from equity method investment, net of tax, (v) interest expense, (vi) other income (expense), net, (vii) depreciation and amortization, (viii ) stock-based compensation expense, (ix) certain legal, tax, and regulatory reserve changes and settlements, (x) asset impairment / loss on sale of assets, (xi) acquisition and financing related expenses, (xii) restructuring charges and ( xiii) other items not indicative of our ongoing operating performance.

We have included Adjusted EBITDA because it is a key measure used by our management team to evaluate our operating performance, generate future operating plans, and make strategic decisions, including those relating to operating expenses. Accordingly, we believe that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results in the same manner as our management team and board of directors. In addition, it provides a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of our business, as it removes the effect of certain non-cash expenses and certain variable charges.

Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as a financial measure, should be considered as supplemental in nature, and is not meant as a substitute for the related financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. These limitations include the following:

  • Adjusted EBITDA excludes certain recurring, non-cash charges, such as depreciation of property and equipment and amortization of intangible assets, and although these are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect all cash capital expenditure requirements for such replacements or for new capital expenditure requirements;
  •   

  • Adjusted EBITDA excludes stock-based compensation expense, which has been, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, a significant recurring expense in our business and an important part of our compensation strategy;
  •   

  • Adjusted EBITDA excludes other items not indicative of our ongoing operating performance;
  •   

  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect period to period changes in taxes, income tax expense or the cash necessary to pay income taxes;
  •   

  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the components of other income (expense), net, which includes interest income, foreign currency exchange gains (losses), net, gain on business divestitures, gain (loss) on debt and equity securities, net, and change in fair value of embedded derivatives; and
  •   

  • Adjusted EBITDA excludes certain legal, tax, and regulatory reserve changes and settlements that may reduce cash available to us.

      Constant Currency  

We compare the percent change in our current period results from the corresponding prior period using constant currency disclosure. We present constant currency growth rate information to provide a framework for assessing how our underlying revenue and ANR performed excluding the effect of foreign currency rate fluctuations. We calculate constant currency by translating our current period financial results using the corresponding prior period’s monthly exchange rates for our transacted currencies other than the U.S. dollar.

  Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Measures

      Adjusted Net Revenue
