BALLWIN, Mo.--()--1847 Goedeker Inc. (NYSE American: GOED) (“Goedekers” or the “Company”), a one-stop e-commerce destination for appliances and furniture, and Appliances Connection, a leading appliance retailer under a definitive agreement to be acquired by the Company, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021.

Key Highlights:

  • Appliances Connection acquisition, announced in Q4 2020 and expected to close in Q2 2021.
  • Combined revenue up 84% year-over-year to $123.0 million in the first quarter of 2021, driven by continued strong growth in site sessions, up 61% to 11.1 million, and written orders, up 105% to $199.3 million.
  • Gross profit was $32.2 million for the combined companies, or 26.2% of total first quarter 2021 net revenue, up from 18.9% in the first quarter of 2020.
  • Combined adjusted EBITDA of $14.7 million in the first quarter of 2021 surpassed the proforma adjusted EBITDA of $14.3 million reported by the combined companies for the full year of 2020.
  • As of March 31, 2021, the combined companies had $40.1 million of cash on a proforma basis and $7.1 million in restricted cash.

“On a combined basis we generated exceptional performance in the first quarter with record sales and record EBITDA,” stated Doug Moore, CEO of 1847 Goedeker. “Our first quarter adjusted EBITDA surpassed the entire year’s performance for 2020, with similar strong improvements to our combined net income. We remain on track to complete our acquisition of Appliances Connection in the near term, creating what we believe will be the largest pure-play online retailer of household appliances in the US.”

“A better flow of merchandise in the quarter was combined with a shipped product mix that helped grow product margins to 19.3% at Goedekers and 27% at Appliances Connection,” commented Albert Fouerti, President of Appliances Connection.

Moore continued, “Our order fulfillment abilities are slowly normalizing but still at only 61% versus a historical rate of more than 80%. As manufacturers return to prior production levels and with the opening of our new 86,000 square foot St. Louis fulfillment center, which triples our Midwest capacity, we believe that Goedekers will quickly return to its normal shipping trends.”

Goedekers plans to host a conference call to discuss its first quarter financial results and outlook for 2021 after completing its acquisition of Appliances Connection. The Company will issue a press release with the conference call details after the timing is confirmed.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company believes the non-GAAP financial measures presented in this press release will help investors understand the financial condition and operating results of the combined company and assess the Company’s future prospects. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures, each of which is discussed in greater detail below, are important supplemental measures because they exclude unusual or non-recurring items as well as non-cash items that are unrelated to or may not be indicative of our ongoing operating results. Further, when read in conjunction with GAAP results, these non-GAAP financial measures provide a baseline for analyzing trends in our underlying businesses and can be used by management as a tool to help make financial, operational and planning decisions. Finally, these measures are often used by analysts and other interested parties to evaluate companies in our industry by providing more comparable measures that are less affected by factors such as capital structure.

The Company recognizes that these non-GAAP financial measures have limitations, including that they may be calculated differently by other companies or may be used under different circumstances or for different purposes, thereby affecting their comparability from company to company. In order to compensate for these and the other limitations discussed below, management does not consider these measures in isolation from or as alternatives to the comparable financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. Readers should review the reconciliations below and should not rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.

The non-GAAP financial measure used in this press release is Adjusted EBITDA. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net loss before income taxes, depreciation and amortization, financing costs, interest expense, sales tax accrual and one-time non-operational events. Adjusted EBITDA is not measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and they should not be considered an alternative to any financial measures that were calculated under U.S. GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA is used to facilitate a comparison of the ordinary, ongoing and customary course of the operations of the combined company on a consistent basis from period to period and provide an additional understanding of factors and trends affecting the business of the combined company. Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled non-GAAP measures used by other companies as other companies may have calculated the measures differently.

The reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss for the combined company (on a pro forma basis) is provided below:
