Background on the Presentation of Results

On June 24, 2021, the company announced it reached an agreement for the purchase by Emart of eBay's Korea business and has since determined that the business meets the discontinued operations accounting criteria. Recast historical financial statements were published in a Form 8-K on July 13, 2021.

To aid in the comparison to previously provided financial guidance, below is a revised version of the April 28, 2021 guidance metrics, reflecting the exclusion of the Korean business.


Q2 2021
In billions, except per share data April 28, 2021 Guidance Korea Impact Implied Guidance excl. Korea
Revenue $2.98 - $3.03 $(0.40) $2.58 - $2.63
Diluted GAAP EPS $0.67 - $0.72 $(0.01) $0.66 - $0.71
Diluted Non-GAAP EPS $0.91 - $0.96 $(0.02) $0.89 - $0.94

Business Highlights

•eBay announced it has completed the transfer of its Classifieds business to Adevinta in exchange for $2.5 billion in cash and a 44% equity stake in Adevinta, equivalent to approximately 540 million shares. With the transfer complete, the company updated its capital allocation plans for 2021 by increasing its estimated share buyback from $2.0 billion to $5.0 billion.
•In July, eBay entered into an agreement with Permira to sell approximately 135 million shares of its stake in Adevinta for more than $2.4 billion of estimated total consideration. This sale reduces eBay's ownership in Adevinta to 33%, which satisfies its commitment to the Austrian regulators that was made as a condition of the Classifieds sale. This includes the announced sale of 125 million shares and the option of approximately 10 million additional shares, which was exercised by Permira.
•The company announced it has reached an agreement with Emart for the purchase of eBay's business in Korea. Pursuant to the transaction, eBay will sell an 80.01% stake in its Korean businesses for 3.44 trillion KRW (or approximately $3.0 billion USD) of gross cash proceeds.
•eBay announced the appointment of Steve Priest as Chief Financial Officer and Stefanie Jay as Chief Business and Strategy Officer.

Revenue Initiatives

•eBay continues to scale its management of payments globally, launching the new experience for sellers in all markets. In Q2, 71% of global on-platform volume was processed through managed payments and the company exited the quarter over 80%. eBay exited the quarter with over 13 million sellers migrated globally.
•As a result of the managed payments migration, eBay further reduced unpaid items for sellers, with 99% of fixed price transactions paid up front.
•Promoted Listings delivered almost $224 million of revenue in Q2, up 14% on an as-reported basis and up 8% on an FX-Neutral basis.
•eBay Ads introduced Automated Promoted Listings Campaigns, using rule-based technologies for sellers to automate how they promote new listings and adjust their ad rates to stay competitive. This makes it easier for sellers to surface their items to buyers, increase their listings visibility and drive overall sales.

Tech-led Reimagination of the Platform

•eBay launched Authenticity Guarantee for handbags over $500 in the U.S. The company also expanded Authenticity Guarantee for sneakers to the U.K., Canada, and Australia.
•eBay announced the addition of escrow to marketplace payment offerings for luxury watches over $10,000. This additional payment option allows buyers and sellers an added convenience via trusted third party Escrow.com, holding funds securely until the transaction is complete.
•During the quarter, eBay expanded its Fitment shopping experience for Vehicle Parts and Accessories by enabling a motorcycle parts finder in Germany and the U.K. The company also expanded the My Garage feature to Canada, Italy, France and Spain.
•The company updated its policy to allow customers to buy and sell non-fungible tokens (NFTs) on the platform, with inventory provided by trusted sellers who meet eBay's high standards across categories like trading cards, music, entertainment and art.
•eBay began offering Terapeak Product Research for free to all Seller Hub users in our key sites, providing sellers with marketplace intelligence to help them determine what to sell, when to sell, where to sell and at what price.
•eBay expanded its standard envelope shipping service to postcards, stamps, coins and paper money, giving sellers a more secure and cost-efficient way to ship. The company has also updated its listings to show buyers all shipping services offered by sellers, allowing them to easily select their preferred carriers, shipping costs and estimated delivery dates.

Impact

•As part of eBay's commitment to consumer safety, the company launched its Regulatory Portal to empower select, trusted authorities from around the globe to efficiently report listings of illegal or unsafe items for swift removal.
•eBay published its annual Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion report, which highlights the company's efforts and commitment to becoming a richly diverse, truly equitable and fearlessly inclusive place to work, grow, buy and sell.

•eBay published its annual Impact Report, which highlights the company's efforts amid the COVID-19 pandemic to help small businesses get online, step forward in climate action plans and connect as a supportive global community.
•eBay published a United States Small Online Business Report that detailed how the company helped small businesses quickly adapt to these changing conditions during the initial months of the pandemic and connect with shoppers around the world.
•eBay launched Capital for eBay Business Sellers in the U.K. to help small businesses rebuild by connecting them with much-needed access to finance, as entrepreneurs and startups across the country faced a cash flow crunch caused by the pandemic.

Non-GAAP Measures of Financial Performance
To supplement the company's condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, the company uses non-GAAP measures of certain components of financial performance. These non-GAAP measures include non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP earnings per diluted share, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP effective tax rate, free cash flow and figures in this press release presented on an 'FX-Neutral basis'. These non-GAAP financial measures are presented on a continuing operations basis.

These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative to, measures prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. Non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the company's results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP. These measures should only be used to evaluate the company's results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures.

Reconciliation to the nearest GAAP measure of all non-GAAP measures included in this press release, except for figures in this press release presented on an 'FX-Neutral basis', can be found in the tables included in this press release. For figures in this press release reported 'on an FX-Neutral basis', the company calculates the year-over-year impact of foreign currency movements using prior period foreign currency rates applied to current year transactional currency amounts. The company defines organic FX-Neutral revenue growth as reported revenue growth, excluding incremental revenue from acquisitions or dispositions for the twelve-month period following such acquisitions or dispositions and foreign exchange rate effects.

These non-GAAP measures are provided to enhance investors' overall understanding of the company's current financial performance and its prospects for the future. Specifically, the company believes the non-GAAP measures provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses, gains and losses, or net purchases of property and equipment, as the case may be, that may not be indicative of its core operating results and business outlook. In addition, because the company has historically reported certain non-GAAP results to investors, the company believes that the inclusion of non-GAAP measures provides consistency in the company's financial reporting.

For its internal budgeting process, and as discussed further below, the company's management uses financial measures that do not include stock-based compensation expense, employer payroll taxes on stock-based compensation, amortization or impairment of acquired intangible assets, impairment of goodwill, amortization of deferred tax assets associated with the realignment of its legal structure and related foreign exchange effects, significant gains or losses from the disposal/acquisition of a business, certain gains and losses on investments including changes in fair value, changes in foreign currency exchange rates and the impact of any related foreign exchange derivative instruments, gains or losses associated with a warrant agreement that the company entered into with Adyen, restructuring-related charges and the income taxes associated with the foregoing. In addition to the corresponding GAAP measures, the company's management also uses the foregoing non-GAAP measures in reviewing the financial results of the company.

The company excludes the following items from non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP earnings per diluted share, non-GAAP operating margin and non-GAAP effective tax rate:

Stock-based compensation expense and related employer payroll taxes. This expense consists of expenses for stock options, restricted stock and employee stock purchases. The company excludes stock-based compensation expense from its non-GAAP measures primarily because they are non-cash expenses that management does not believe are reflective of ongoing operating results. The related employer payroll taxes are dependent on the company's stock price and the vesting of restricted stock by employees and the timing and size of stock option exercises, over which management has limited to no control, and as such management does not believe it correlates to the company's operation of the business.
Amortization or impairment of acquired intangible assets, impairment of goodwill, certain amortization of deferred tax assets and related foreign exchange effects, significant gains or losses and transaction expenses from the acquisition or disposal of a business and certain gains or losses on investments. The company incurs amortization or impairment of acquired intangible assets and goodwill in connection with acquisitions and may incur significant gains or losses from the acquisition or disposal of a business and therefore excludes these amounts from its non-GAAP measures. The company also excludes certain gains and losses on investments. The company excludes the non-cash amortization of deferred tax assets associated with the realignment of its legal structure, which is not reduced by the effects of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, and related foreign exchange effects. The company excludes these items because management does not believe they correlate to the ongoing operating results of the company's business.
Restructuring. These charges consist of expenses for employee severance and other exit and disposal costs. The company excludes significant restructuring charges primarily because management does not believe they are reflective of ongoing operating results.
Other certain significant gains, losses, or charges that are not indicative of the company's core operating results. These are significant gains, losses, or charges during a period that are the result of isolated events or transactions which have not occurred frequently in the past and are not expected to occur regularly or be repeated in the future. The company excludes these amounts from its results primarily because management does not believe they are indicative of its current or ongoing operating results. These amounts include changes in fair value and the related change in foreign currency exchange rates of equity securities with readily determinable fair values, globally.
Change in fair market value of warrant. These are gains or losses associated with a warrant agreement that the company entered into with Adyen, which are attributable to changes in fair value during the period.
Tax effect of non-GAAP adjustments. This amount is used to present stock-based compensation and the other amounts described above on an after-tax basis consistent with the presentation of non-GAAP net income.

In addition to the non-GAAP measures discussed above, the company also uses free cash flow. Free cash flow represents operating cash flows less purchases of property and equipment. The company considers free cash flow to be a liquidity measure that provides useful information to management and investors about the amount of cash generated by the business after the purchases of property, buildings, and equipment, which can then be used to, among other things, invest in the company's business, make strategic acquisitions, repurchase stock and pay dividends. A limitation of the utility of free cash flow as a measure of financial performance is that it does not represent the total increase or decrease in the company's cash balance for the period.
