SEATTLE, Aug. 4, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zillow® Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:Z), which houses a portfolio of the largest and most vibrant real estate and home-related brands on mobile and Web, today announced its consolidated financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2015.

"Zillow Group had a strong second quarter, beating our own expectations for revenue and EBITDA," said Zillow Group CEO Spencer Rascoff. "We've been very focused operationally on the integration of Trulia, and made great progress on a number of fronts. As with most mergers of any scale, it has required a great deal of time, attention and energy. We're pleased to share today that we will have successfully combined all advertising products by the end of the third quarter, well ahead of the timetable we shared on our May 12th conference call. Most importantly, we believe the strategic rationale for the combination remains extremely strong, as we are already realizing benefits of our combined audience scale."

Second Quarter 2015 Financial Highlights

Throughout this release, financial results are presented on both a reported and pro forma basis. Reported results were prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Pro forma results exclude items described in the reconciliation tables below and assume the February 2015 acquisition of Trulia occurred on January 1, 2014, the beginning of the comparable prior year reporting period. The pro forma results are presented in order to provide additional insights into the underlying trends in the business. Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended June 30, 2015 are presented in this release on an as reported basis.

  • Revenue increased 20% to $171.3 million from pro forma revenue of $142.8 million in the second quarter of 2014, exceeding the high end of the company's outlook by $2.3 million. Excluding Market Leader Revenue, Revenue increased 25% to $158.7 million from $126.8 million in the second quarter of 2014 on a pro forma basis.
    • Marketplace Revenue increased 29% to $145.5 million from pro forma revenue of $112.4 million in the second quarter of 2014.
      • Real Estate Revenue grew 37% to $122.6 million from pro forma revenue of $89.2 million in the second quarter of 2014.
      • Mortgages Revenue grew 44% to $10.4 million from pro forma revenue of $7.2 million in the second quarter of 2014.
      • Market Leader Revenue decreased 21% to $12.5 million from pro forma revenue of $16.0 million in the second quarter of 2014. As previously announced, Zillow Group is conducting a strategic review of the Market Leader business.
    • Display Revenue decreased 15% to $25.8 million from pro forma revenue of $30.4 million in the second quarter of 2014.
  • Pro forma net loss was $26.7 million in the second quarter of 2015 compared to pro forma net loss of $29.6 million in the same period last year.
  • GAAP net loss was $38.7 million in the second quarter of 2015, which includes the impact of $1.7 million of acquisition-related costs and $6.7 million of restructuring costs due to the company's February 2015 acquisition of Trulia and the related restructuring plan.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $21.0 million in the second quarter of 2015, or 12% of Revenue, which was an increase from pro forma Adjusted EBITDA of $5.6 million in the second quarter of 2014, or 4% of pro forma Revenue, and exceeded the company's outlook by approximately $17 million. The higher than expected result was driven primarily by lower than expected advertising spend to achieve audience growth, integration related cost synergies and better than expected revenue in the quarter.
  • Pro forma basic and diluted net loss per share was $0.46 in the second quarter of 2015 compared to pro forma basic and diluted net loss per share of $0.52 in the same period last year.
  • Basic and diluted GAAP net loss per share was $0.66 in the second quarter of 2015 compared to basic and diluted GAAP net loss per share of $0.26 in the same period last year. The second quarter of 2015 includes the impact of $0.03 on basic and diluted GAAP net loss per share from acquisition-related costs and $0.11 on basic and diluted GAAP net loss per share from restructuring costs due to the company's February 2015 acquisition of Trulia and the related restructuring plan.
  • Basic and diluted non-GAAP net loss per share was $0.01 in the second quarter of 2015 compared to basic and diluted non-GAAP net loss per share of $0.05 in the same period last year, which excludes share-based compensation expense, acquisition-related costs and restructuring costs.

Operating and Business Highlights

  • On August 3, 2015, Zillow Group announced the appointment of Kathleen Philips to the position of Chief Financial Officer, effective August 7, 2015. Philips was previously Zillow Group's Chief Operating Officer and has played a pivotal role in all of the company's key corporate and finance initiatives.
  • During the second quarter, 141 million average monthly unique users visited Zillow Group consumer brands Zillow, Trulia, StreetEasy and HotPads. According to comScore, Zillow Group brands now represent 72% market share of all mobile exclusive visitors to the category.
  • The integration of Zillow's and Trulia's rentals and mortgages products, display advertising and corporate infrastructure is complete, and the combination of Zillow's and Trulia's agent advertising products is on track for completion in the third quarter, several months ahead of schedule. The Company continues to expect to realize approximately $100 million in cost synergies by the end of 2016.
  • Zillow Group is benefitting from the combined audience scale of having several of the largest mobile and online real estate brands under one roof. Since January, more than 300 MLSs have signed agreements to send listings directly to Zillow and Trulia, providing their members access to the largest audience of home shoppers on mobile and Web 1.
  • In the second quarter, Zillow Group average monthly revenue per advertiser, or ARPA, was $375, up 18% from $318 compared to the same period last year on a pro forma basis. Zillow Group's agent advertisers totaled 101,297 as of June 30, 2015. During the quarter, the company strategically ended several of Trulia's short-term discounted products and changed the sales team's incentives to focus on net revenue rather than the number of advertisers. The current advertiser count reflects the Company's continued strategic focus on high ARPA agents who provide a superior consumer experience. This number of agent advertisers is de-duplicated across Zillow and Trulia and excludes Market Leader-only subscribers. Additional information regarding historical pro forma agent advertisers and pro forma quarterly ARPA can be found on the Zillow Group Investor Relations Blog at www.zillowgroup.com/ir-blog.
  • On July 21, 2015, Zillow Group announced a stock dividend of Class C capital stock. All shareholders of record of Zillow Group's Class A and Class B common stock on July 31, 2015, the record date for the dividend, will receive two shares of Class C capital stock for each share of Class A and Class B common stock held by them as of the record date. This is an extension of the company's dual-class share structure and is intended to enable management to continue its focus on long-term growth and innovation, while maintaining the flexibility to issue additional stock for strategic business decisions and to retain and attract the best employees.
  • On July 22, 2015 Zillow Group announced the planned acquisition of DotLoop, a Cincinnati-based company that simplifies real estate transactions by enabling real estate professionals and their clients to share, edit, sign, and store documents digitally. The acquisition aligns with the company's mission to provide value-add productivity tools and products to its partner brokers and their agents and is expected to close in the third quarter.

Statements containing words such as "may," "believe," "anticipate," "expect," "intend," "plan," "project," "will," "projections," "continue," "business outlook," "estimate," "outlook," or similar expressions constitute forward-looking statements. Differences in Zillow Group's actual results from those described in these forward-looking statements may result from actions taken by Zillow Group as well as from risks and uncertainties beyond Zillow Group's control. Factors that may contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to, Zillow Group's ability to successfully integrate and realize the benefits of our past or future strategic acquisitions or investments, including our February 2015 acquisition of Trulia; Zillow Group's ability to maintain and effectively manage an adequate rate of growth; Zillow Group's ability to maintain or establish relationships with listings and data providers; the impact of the real estate industry on Zillow Group's business; Zillow Group's ability to innovate and provide products and services that are attractive to its users and advertisers; Zillow Group's ability to increase awareness of the Zillow Group brands; Zillow Group's ability to attract consumers to Zillow Group's mobile applications and websites; Zillow Group's ability to compete successfully against existing or future competitors; the reliable performance of Zillow Group's network infrastructure and content delivery processes; and Zillow Group's ability to protect its intellectual property. The foregoing list of risks and uncertainties is illustrative, but is not exhaustive. For more information about potential factors that could affect Zillow Group's business and financial results, please review the "Risk Factors" described in Zillow Group, Inc.'s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2015 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, and in Zillow Group's other filings with the SEC. Except as may be required by law, Zillow Group does not intend, and undertakes no duty, to update this information to reflect future events or circumstances.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To provide investors with additional information regarding our financial results, this press release includes references to certain pro forma financial results, Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share, all of which are non-GAAP financial measures. We have provided a reconciliation of pro forma Adjusted EBITDA to pro forma net loss, Adjusted EBITDA to net loss, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, and a reconciliation of net income (loss), adjusted, to net loss, as reported on a GAAP basis, and the calculations of non-GAAP net income (loss) per share - basic and diluted and pro forma weighted-average shares outstanding – basic and diluted, within this earnings release.

The pro forma financial results included in this press release, although helpful in illustrating the financial characteristics of Zillow Group under one set of assumptions, are not true historical financial results. They are provided for informational purposes and do not attempt to represent Zillow Group's actual financial condition if the acquisition had been completed on the applicable dates of the financial statements presented herein or predict or suggest future results.

Adjusted EBITDA is a key metric used by our management and board of directors to measure operating performance and trends, and to prepare and approve our annual budget. In particular, the exclusion of certain expenses in calculating Adjusted EBITDA facilitates operating performance comparisons on a period-to-period basis.

Our use of Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are:

  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not consider the potentially dilutive impact of share-based compensation;
  • Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect cash capital expenditure requirements for such replacements or for new capital expenditure requirements; and
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect acquisition-related costs;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect restructuring costs;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect interest expense; and
  • Other companies, including companies in our own industry, may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these limitations, you should consider Adjusted EBITDA alongside other financial performance measures, including various cash flow metrics, net loss and our other GAAP results.

Our presentation of non-GAAP net income (loss) per share excludes the impact of share-based compensation expense, acquisition-related costs and restructuring costs. This measure is not a key metric used by our management and board of directors to measure operating performance or otherwise manage the business. However, we provide non-GAAP net income (loss) per share as supplemental information to investors, as we believe the exclusion of share-based compensation expense, acquisition-related costs and restructuring costs facilitates investors' operating performance comparisons on a period-to-period basis. You should not consider these metrics in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP.
