NEW YORK, November 10, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Original BARK Company (NYSE: BARK) ("BARK" or the "Company"), a leading global omnichannel brand for dogs and their parents, today announced its financial results for the fiscal second quarter ended September 30, 2021.

Highlights

  • Delivered fiscal second quarter 2022 revenue of $120.2 million, a 39.1% increase year-over-year, and a robust gross margin of 58.2%.

  • Added approximately 271,000 Active Subscriptions, bringing total to 2.1 million as of quarter-end.

  • Achieved a quarterly LTV-to-CAC of 4.9x, driven by record Average Order Value, strong customer retention, and continued marketing efficiency.

  • The Original Bark Company is changing its corporate name to BARK, Inc.; the Company expects this change to be effective on November 22, 2021.

"BARK continues to benefit from powerful secular and channel tailwinds, including growing dog ownership, increasing spending on pets, and an expanding share of pet sales occurring online. Last quarter, we delivered strong results across several key metrics, including a 39% increase in Active Subscriptions, a 34% increase in Subscription Shipments, and a record-high Average Order Value of $29.73," said Manish Joneja, Chief Executive Officer of BARK. "Notwithstanding the challenging macro environment with increased freight costs and rising media rates, we delivered a robust gross margin of over 58%, and maintained a very healthy LTV-to-CAC of 4.9x in the quarter, underscoring our strong customer retention, continued marketing efficiency and strategic positioning as one of the largest digitally native dog brands in the world today."

Fiscal Second Quarter 2022 Details:

Revenue

Total revenue increased 39.1% to $120.2 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2022 as compared to $86.4 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2021.

  • Direct to Consumer ("DTC") revenue increased 41.7% to $106.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2022 as compared to the same period last year. The growth in DTC revenue was driven by an increase in Subscription Shipments, Average Order Value ("AOV"), and Add-to-Box revenue.

  • Commerce revenue increased 20.8% to $13.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2022 as compared to the same period last year. This growth reflects increases in both the number of retailers we partnered with, as well as volume increases amongst existing retailer partners.

Gross Profit

Gross profit was $69.9 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2022 up from $51.6 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2021. Gross margin was 58.2% in the second quarter of fiscal year 2022 compared to 59.7% in the second quarter of fiscal year 2021. The decrease in gross margin in the second quarter of fiscal year 2022 was primarily due to higher inbound freight costs as a result of worldwide shipping congestion.

Operating Expenses

General and administrative expenses were $68.2 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2022, versus $39.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2021. The year-over-year increase was driven by greater shipment volume associated with a 34.3% increase in total Subscription Shipments, higher outbound shipping and fulfillment rates associated with industry wide shipping congestion, as well as additional expenses in connection with the build out and staffing of our BARK Eats and BARK Bright businesses. The Company also incurred incremental expenses associated with being a newly public company.

Advertising and marketing expenses increased $4.1 million to $17.1 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2022 from $13.0 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2021. This increase was primarily due to the year-over-year increase in Customer Acquisition Costs ("CAC") as media rates exceed pre-COVID levels in comparison with the reduced media rates in the second quarter of fiscal year 2021, stemming from the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. CAC was $51.71 in the most recent fiscal quarter, compared to $43.98 in the same period last year and $48.36 in the first quarter of fiscal 2022. Our Lifetime Value to CAC was a healthy 4.9x in the second quarter of fiscal year 2022. The Company manages its marketing budget on an LTV-to-CAC basis, targeting an annual ratio of 4x or greater.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA was $(8.8) million, with Adjusted EBITDA margin of (7.3)%, in the second quarter of fiscal year 2022, as compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $1.1 million and Adjusted EBITDA margin of 1.2%, in the second quarter of fiscal year 2021. Fiscal year 2022 is deliberately an investment year for BARK; the Company is investing in several strategic areas, including its highly-personalized food business, BARK Eats, as well as self-managed fulfillment assets.

Balance Sheet Highlights

The Company’s cash and cash equivalents balance as of September 30, 2021 was $272.6 million. Last quarter, the Company invested in additional inventory in anticipation of the upcoming holiday season, and potential freight congestion surrounding it. As of September 30, 2021, the Company had total debt outstanding of $71.7 million, related to its outstanding convertible notes.

Third Quarter and Fiscal Year 2022 Outlook

Based on information available as of November 10, 2021, BARK is issuing guidance for the fiscal third quarter 2022 and fiscal year 2022 as follows:

  • For fiscal third quarter 2022, the Company expects total revenue of $137 to $139 million.

  • For the fiscal year 2022, due to uncertainty surrounding the macro freight and shipping environment, the Company anticipates roughly 2% of risk to the $516 million of revenue guidance originally provided in December of 2020.

  • The Company is revising its fiscal year 2022 Adjusted EBITDA guidance to ($38) million to ($40) million, from approximately ($31) million, due to greater-than-expected shipping and fulfillment costs, as a result of macro shipping congestion and rising shipping rates; incremental public company costs, associated with preparing to comply as a large accelerated filer with the requirements of Section 404(b) of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act; higher D&O insurance, as a result of rising demand on insurers; and additional audit fees as a result of the timing of the Company's merger with Northern Star Acquisition Corp.

Subscription Shipments

We define Subscription Shipments as the total number of subscription product shipments shipped in a given period. Subscription Shipments does not include gift subscriptions or one-time subscription shipments.

Average Monthly Subscription Shipment Churn

Average Monthly Subscription Shipment Churn is calculated as the average number of subscription shipments that have been cancelled in the last three months, divided by the average monthly active subscription shipments in the last three months. The number of cancellations used to calculate Average Monthly Subscription Shipment Churn is net of the number of subscriptions reactivated during the last three months.

Active Subscriptions

Our ability to expand the number of Active Subscriptions is an indicator of our market penetration and growth. We define Active Subscriptions as the total number of unique product subscriptions with at least one shipment during the last 12 months. Active Subscriptions does not include gift subscriptions or one-time subscription purchases.

New Subscriptions

We define New Subscriptions as the number of unique subscriptions with their first shipment occurring in a period.

Customer Acquisition Cost

Customer Acquisition Cost ("CAC") is a measure of the cost to acquire New Subscriptions in our Direct to Consumer business segment. This unit economic metric indicates how effective we are at acquiring each New Subscription. CAC is a monthly measure defined as media spend in our Direct to Consumer business segment in the period indicated, divided by total New Subscriptions in such period. Direct to Consumer media spend is primarily comprised of internet and social media advertising fees.

Lifetime Value

Lifetime Value ("LV") is the dollar value of each subscription as measured by the cumulative Direct to Consumer Gross Profit for the average life of the subscription.

Average Order Value

Average Order Value ("AOV") is Direct to Consumer revenue for the period divided by Subscription Shipments for the same period.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We report our financial results in accordance with GAAP. However, management believes that Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Margin, Adjusted Net Income (Loss) on Common Shares, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin, all non-GAAP financial measures (together the "Non-GAAP Measures"), provide investors with additional useful information in evaluating our performance.

We calculate Adjusted Net Income (Loss) as net income (loss), adjusted to exclude: (1) stock-based compensation expense, (2) change in fair value of warrants and derivatives, (3) sales and use tax expense, (4) one-time transaction costs associated with the financing and merger (5) demurrage fees related to freight and (6) other one-time items.

We calculate Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Margin by dividing Adjusted Net Income (Loss) for the period by Revenue for the period.

We calculate Adjusted Net Income (Loss) on Common Shares by dividing Adjusted Net Income (Loss) for the period by weighted average common shares used to compute net loss per share attributable to common stockholders for the period.

We calculate Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss), adjusted to exclude: (1) interest expense, (2) depreciation and amortization, (3) stock-based compensation expense, (4) change in fair value of warrants and derivatives, (5) sales and use tax expense,(6) one-time transaction costs associated with the financing and merger, (7) demurrage fees related to freight and (8) other one-time items.

We calculate Adjusted EBITDA Margin by dividing Adjusted EBITDA for the period by Revenue for the period.

The Non-GAAP Measures are financial measures that are not required by, or presented in accordance with GAAP. We believe that the Non-GAAP Measures, when taken together with our financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, provides meaningful supplemental information regarding our operating performance and facilitates internal comparisons of our historical operating performance on a more consistent basis by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of our business, results of operations or outlook. In particular, we believe that the use of the Non-GAAP Measures are helpful to our investors as they are measures used by management in assessing the health of our business, determining incentive compensation and evaluating our operating performance, as well as for internal planning and forecasting purposes.

The Non-GAAP Measures are presented for supplemental informational purposes only, have limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with GAAP. Some of the limitations of the Non-GAAP Measures include that (1) the measures do not properly reflect capital commitments to be paid in the future, (2) although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the underlying assets may need to be replaced and Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin do not reflect these capital expenditures, (3) Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin do not consider the impact of stock-based compensation expense, which is an ongoing expense for our company and (4) Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin do not reflect other non-operating expenses, including interest expense. In addition, our use of the Non-GAAP Measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies because they may not calculate the Non-GAAP Measures in the same manner, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure. Because of these limitations, when evaluating our performance, you should consider the Non-GAAP Measures alongside other financial measures, including our net income (loss) and other results stated in accordance with GAAP.

A reconciliation of the projected Non-GAAP Measures has not been provided because certain items excluded from these Non-GAAP Measures such as charges related to stock-based compensation expenses and related tax effects, including non-recurring income tax adjustments, cannot be reasonably calculated or predicted at this time.

The following table presents a reconciliation of Adjusted Net Income (Loss) to net loss, the most directly comparable financial measure stated in accordance with GAAP, and the calculation of net loss margin, Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Margin and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) on Common Shares for the periods presented:

(1) Sales and use tax expense relates to recording a liability for sales and use tax we did not collect from our customers. Historically, we had collected state or local sales, use, or other similar taxes in certain jurisdictions in which we only had physical presence. On June 21, 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court decided, in South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc. that state and local jurisdictions may, at least in certain circumstances, enforce a sales and use tax collection obligation on remote vendors that have no physical presence in such jurisdiction. A number of states have positioned themselves to require sales and use tax collection by remote vendors and/or by online marketplaces. The details and effective dates of these collection requirements vary from state to state and accordingly, we recorded a liability in those periods in which we created economic nexus based on each state’s requirements. Accordingly, we now collect, remit, and report sales tax in all states that impose a sales tax.

(2) Transactions costs represent non-recurring consulting and advisory costs with respect to the merger agreement entered into with Northern Star Acquisition Corp. on December 16, 2020.

(3) For the three months ended September 30, 2021, other one-time items is comprised of SOX implementation fees of $0.3 million, executive transition costs, including recruiting, bonus and relocation related expense of $0.3 million, loss on exercise of warrants of $0.3 million and restructuring related expenses of $0.1 million. For the six months ended September 30, 2021, other one-time items is comprised of loss on extinguishment of debt of $2.6 million, SOX implementation fees of $0.3 million, executive transition costs, including recruiting, bonus and relocation related expenses of $0.3 million, loss on exercise of warrants of $0.3 million and restructuring related expenses of $0.1 million.
