Second Quarter 2016 Financial Highlights

Throughout this release, certain historical financial results and year-over-year comparisons are presented on a pro forma basis. 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 reporting period for the year prior to the year of acquisition. The pro forma results are presented in order to provide additional insights into the underlying trends in the business. Financial information for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2016 is presented in this release on an as-reported basis. Reported results were prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) unless otherwise noted.

    • Display Revenue decreased 35% to $16.8 million from $25.8 million in the second quarter of 2015. The decrease is primarily a result of the company’s strategy to deemphasize display advertising and improve the user experience.

  • GAAP net loss was $156.1 million in the second quarter of 2016, which includes the impact of a $130.0 million litigation settlement and $12.5 million in related legal costs, compared to GAAP net loss of $38.7 million in the same period last year.

  • Adjusted EBITDA was $(101.3) million in the second quarter of 2016, which was a decrease from $21.0 million, or 12% of Revenue, in the second quarter of 2015. Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of 2016 includes the impact of a $130.0 million litigation settlement and $12.5 million in related legal costs. Excluding the impact of the $130.0 million litigation settlement, Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of 2016 would have been $28.7 million, or 14% of Revenue.

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; 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.

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’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 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 February 2015 acquisition of Trulia had been completed on the applicable dates of the financial statements presented herein, or to 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;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect acquisition-related costs;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect restructuring costs;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect interest expense or other income;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the impact of income taxes; 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, restructuring costs and income taxes. 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, restructuring costs and income taxes 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.
