Exhibit 99.1
Groupon Announces Third Quarter 2017 Results
Achieves 13% Unit Growth in North America Local; Raises Full Year Outlook
Gross profit of $309.4 million
Net income from continuing operations of $3.8 million
Adjusted EBITDA of $46.6 million
GAAP income per share from continuing operations of $0.00; non-GAAP income per share of $0.01
Operating cash flow of $161.5 million for the trailing twelve month period; Free cash flow of $98.6 million for the trailing twelve month period
Raises 2017 gross profit guidance range to $1.305 billion to $1.355 billion and 2017 Adjusted EBITDA guidance range to $225 million to $245 million
CHICAGO - (BUSINESS WIRE) - November 1, 2017 - Groupon, Inc. (NASDAQ: GRPN) today announced financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2017.
"We delivered another solid quarter while continuing to invest in the growth and development of our local marketplace," said Groupon CEO Rich Williams. "We continued to see strong demand in our core local business and scale our voucherless products like Groupon+."
Third Quarter 2017 Summary
North America
North America gross profit in the third quarter 2017 increased 3% to $207.9 million from $201.7 million in the third quarter 2016 driven by strength in July, which was partially offset by softer spending in markets affected by the hurricanes in late August and early September. In Local, gross profit increased 7% to $162.9 million as unit growth accelerated for the fourth consecutive quarter to the low teens. Gross profit in Goods was $30.9 million versus $31.5 million in the third quarter 2016, while Travel was $14.1 million versus $17.3 million in the third quarter 2016.
Strength in the Local category was driven by an increase in active customers and expanded supply through third party partners and premier national brands. In addition, we have continued to make improvements to the customer experience. Groupon+, one of our leading voucherless initiatives, is now live in 23 markets.
Our focus is to maximize gross profit, which may come at the expense of revenue. This emphasis includes an increasing shift toward offerings in our higher margin, more differentiated Local category, from our Goods category. In the third quarter 2017, North America revenue decreased 14% driven by a 30% decline in Goods direct revenue transactions, which are presented on a gross basis. Additionally, we estimate the hurricanes had a $5 million negative impact on revenue and $4 million on gross profit in the third quarter 2017.





North America active customers reached 32.5 million as of September 30, 2017, adding 600 thousand net new active customers during the third quarter 2017. Active customers represent unique user accounts that have made a purchase during the trailing twelve months either through one of our online marketplaces or directly with a merchant for which we earned a commission.
International
International gross profit increased 11% (7% FX-neutral) in the third quarter 2017 to $101.5 million. Gross profit increased 15% (11% FX-neutral) in Local and grew 24% (18% FX-neutral) in Goods, partially offset by a 28% (31% FX-neutral) decline in Travel. We began to see early traction from our supply, marketing, and product initiatives in the third quarter 2017, and believe these initiatives will enable us to continue our turnaround of international in the coming quarters.
International active customers increased 200 thousand during the third quarter 2017 to 16.6 million as of September 30, 2017.
Consolidated
Gross billings were $1.34 billion in the third quarter 2017, up 1% (flat FX-neutral) from $1.32 billion in the third quarter 2016. Gross billings reflect the total dollar value of customer purchases of goods and services.
Revenue was $634.5 million in the third quarter 2017, down 8% (9% FX-neutral) from $686.6 million in the third quarter 2016 reflecting our strategic emphasis on our Local category, resulting in lower revenue from Goods.
Gross profit was $309.4 million in the third quarter 2017, up 6% (4% FX-neutral) from $293.3 million in the third quarter 2016.
SG&A declined 8% year-over-year to $214.8 million in the third quarter 2017 as we continued to drive operational efficiency through automation and our more streamlined organization, which we expect not only to improve our customer experience but also to create greater operating leverage over time.
Marketing was $101.5 million in the third quarter 2017, up 20% year-over-year. We launched an integrated offline campaign in 3 cities for Groupon+ across TV, radio and out-of-home advertising.
Net income from continuing operations was $3.8 million in the third quarter 2017, which included a $17.1 million gain on an asset sale partially offset by $11.5 million in restructuring charges. This compares to a net loss of $34.4 million in the third quarter 2016.
Net income attributable to common stockholders was $0.1 million, or $0.00 per share. Non-GAAP net income attributable to common stockholders was $6.8 million, or $0.01 per share.
Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $46.6 million in the third quarter 2017, up 43% from $32.6 million in the third quarter 2016.
Global units sold declined 1% year-over-year to 44.1 million in the third quarter 2017. Units in North America were flat as low teens growth in Local was offset by a decline in Goods. International units declined 1%. Units are defined as purchases before refunds and cancellations made either through one of our online marketplaces or directly with a merchant for which we earned a commission.





Operating cash flow was $161.5 million for the trailing twelve month period as of the third quarter 2017. Free cash flow, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $98.6 million for the trailing twelve month period ending September 30, 2017.
Cash and cash equivalents as of September 30, 2017 were $638.7 million, and we had no outstanding borrowings under our $250.0 million revolving credit facility.
Definitions and reconciliations of all non-GAAP financial measures and additional information regarding operational measures are included below in the section titled “Non-GAAP Financial and Operational Measures” and in the accompanying tables.
Share Repurchase
During the third quarter 2017, Groupon repurchased 2,384,200 shares of its common stock for an aggregate purchase price of $9.2 million. Groupon repurchased 16,906,334 shares for an aggregate purchase price of $60.0 million for the year-to-date period as of September 30, 2017. Up to $135.2 million of common stock was available for repurchase under Groupon’s share repurchase program as of September 30, 2017. The timing and amount of any share repurchases, if any, are determined based on market conditions, limitations under our Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, share price and other factors, and the program may be terminated at any time.
Outlook
Groupon is updating its outlook for 2017, which reflects current foreign exchange rates, as well as expected marketing investments and cost benefits associated with our streamlining initiatives. The basis for our full year 2017 guidance is continuing operations.
For the full year 2017, Groupon is raising its expected gross profit guidance range to $1.305 billion to $1.355 billion.
Groupon is raising its expected Adjusted EBITDA guidance range to $225 million to $245 million in 2017.

Groupon encourages investors to use its investor relations website as a way of easily finding information about the company. Groupon promptly makes available on this website, free of charge, the reports that the company files or furnishes with the SEC, corporate governance information (including Groupon’s Global Code of Conduct), and select press releases and social media postings. Groupon uses its investor relations site (investor.groupon.com) and its blog (https://www.groupon.com/blog) as a means of disclosing material non-public information and for complying with its disclosure obligations under Regulation FD.





Non-GAAP Financial and Operational Measures
In addition to financial results reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP, we have provided the following non-GAAP financial measures: Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders, non-GAAP earnings (loss) per share, free cash flow and foreign currency exchange rate neutral operating results. These non-GAAP financial measures, which are presented on a continuing operations basis, are intended to aid investors in better understanding our current financial performance and prospects for the future as seen through the eyes of management. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures facilitate comparisons with our historical results and with the results of peer companies who present similar measures (although other companies may define non-GAAP measures differently than we define them, even when similar terms are used to identify such measures). However, these non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to be a substitute for those reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP. For reconciliations of these measures to the most applicable financial measures under U.S. GAAP, see "Non-GAAP Reconciliation Schedules" and "Supplemental Financial Information and Business Metrics" included in the tables accompanying this release.
We exclude the following items from one or more of our non-GAAP financial measures:
Stock-based compensation. We exclude stock-based compensation because it is primarily non-cash in nature and we believe that non-GAAP financial measures excluding this item provide meaningful supplemental information about our operating performance and liquidity.
Acquisition-related expense (benefit), net. Acquisition-related expense (benefit), net is comprised of the change in the fair value of contingent consideration arrangements and external transaction costs related to business combinations, primarily consisting of legal and advisory fees. The composition of our contingent consideration arrangements and the impact of those arrangements on our operating results vary over time based on a number of factors, including the terms of our business combinations and the timing of those transactions. We exclude acquisition-related expense (benefit), net because we believe that non-GAAP financial measures excluding this item provide meaningful supplemental information about our operating performance and facilitate comparisons to our historical operating results.
Depreciation and amortization. We exclude depreciation and amortization expenses because they are non-cash in nature and we believe that non-GAAP financial measures excluding these items provide meaningful supplemental information about our operating performance and liquidity.
Interest and Other Non-Operating Items. Interest and other non-operating items include: gains and losses related to minority investments, foreign currency gains and losses, interest income and interest expense, including non-cash interest expense from our convertible senior notes. We exclude interest and other non-operating items from certain of our non-GAAP financial measures because we believe that excluding these items provides meaningful supplemental information about our core operating performance and facilitates comparisons to our historical operating results.





Special Charges and Credits. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017, special charges and credits included charges related to our restructuring plan and a gain from the sale of intangible assets. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, special charges and credits included charges related to our restructuring plan and gains from business dispositions. We exclude special charges and credits from Adjusted EBITDA because we believe that excluding those items provides meaningful supplemental information about our core operating performance and facilitates comparisons with our historical results.
Income Tax Effect of Items Excluded from Non-GAAP Financial Measures. We determine the income tax effect of items excluded from our measures of non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders and non-GAAP earnings (loss) per share by performing a tax provision calculation using pre-tax income (loss) amounts that have been adjusted to exclude those items in the respective jurisdictions to which they relate. The difference between the income tax expense (benefit) determined on that basis and our reported income tax expense (benefit) represents the income tax effect of the excluded items.
Descriptions of the non-GAAP financial measures included in this release and the accompanying tables are as follows:
Foreign exchange rate neutral operating results show our current period operating results as if foreign currency exchange rates had remained the same as those in effect in the prior-year period. We present foreign exchange rate neutral information to facilitate comparisons to our historical operating results.
Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP performance measure that we define as net income (loss) from continuing operations excluding income taxes, interest and other non-operating items, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, acquisition-related expense (benefit), net, and other special charges and credits. Our definition of Adjusted EBITDA may differ from similar measures used by other companies, even when similar terms are used to identify such measures. Adjusted EBITDA is a key measure used by our management and Board of Directors to evaluate operating performance, generate future operating plans and make strategic decisions regarding the allocation of capital. Accordingly, we believe that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating performance in the same manner as our management and Board of Directors. However, Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be a substitute for income (loss) from continuing operations.
Non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders and non-GAAP earnings (loss) per share are non-GAAP performance measures that adjust our net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders and earnings (loss) per share to exclude the impact of:
stock-based compensation,
amortization of acquired intangible assets,
acquisition-related expense (benefit), net,
special charges and credits, including restructuring charges,
non-cash interest expense on convertible senior notes,





non-operating foreign currency gains and losses related to intercompany balances and reclassifications of cumulative translation adjustments to earnings as a result of business dispositions or country exits,
non-operating gains and losses from minority investments that we have elected to record at fair value with changes in fair value reported in earnings,
non-operating gains and losses from the sale of minority investments,
income (loss) from discontinued operations, and
the income tax effect of those items.
We believe that excluding the above items from our measures of non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders and non-GAAP earnings (loss) per share provides useful supplemental information for evaluating our operating performance and facilitates comparisons to our historical results by eliminating items that are non-cash in nature, relate to discrete events, or are otherwise not indicative of the core operating performance of our ongoing business.
Free cash flow is a non-GAAP liquidity measure that comprises net cash provided by (used in) operating activities from continuing operations less purchases of property and equipment and capitalized software from continuing operations. We use free cash flow to conduct and evaluate our business because, although it is similar to cash flow from operations, we believe that it typically represents a more useful measure of cash flows because purchases of fixed assets, software developed for internal-use and website development costs are necessary components of our ongoing operations. Free cash flow is not intended to represent the total increase or decrease in Groupon's cash balance for the applicable period.
Active customers. We have historically defined active customers as unique user accounts that have made a purchase through one of our online marketplaces during the trailing twelve months ("TTM"). As a result of our ongoing development and testing of voucherless offerings that are linked to customer credit cards, we have updated our definition of active customers as follows: unique user accounts that have made a purchase during the TTM either through one of our online marketplaces or directly with a merchant for which we earned a commission. This change in definition did not have a significant impact on our active customer count for the TTM ended September 30, 2017. We consider this metric to be an important indicator of our business performance as it helps us to understand how the number of customers actively purchasing our offerings is trending. Some customers could establish and make purchases from more than one account, so it is possible that our active customer metric may count certain customers more than once in a given period. For entities that we have acquired in a business combination, active customers include unique user accounts that have made a purchase through the acquired entity's website during the trailing twelve months, which includes customers who have made purchases prior to our acquisition of the entity.
Units. This metric has historically represented the number of purchases made through our online marketplaces, before refunds and cancellations. As a result of our ongoing development and testing of voucherless offerings that are linked to customer credit cards, we have updated our definition of units as follows: purchases during the reporting period, before refunds and cancellations, made either through one of our online marketplaces or directly with a merchant for which we earned a commission. This change in definition did not have a significant impact on our unit count for the





three and nine months ended September 30, 2017. We consider unit growth to be an important indicator of the total volume of business conducted through our marketplaces.
