Because the COVID-19 pandemic had a materially negative impact on our results for the three months ended December 31, 2020, we are also providing results for the three months ended December 31, 2019 as supplemental information that may provide a useful reference point for investors.

Additional Fourth Quarter 2021 Metrics and Results Commentary

  • Accelerated growth in active customers was a key driver of our strong results, highlighted by record quarterly growth of 162,000 active customers during the fourth quarter of 2021. Total active customers grew to 1.8 million, an increase of 25% year-over-year, illustrating the strong consumer appeal of our offerings.
  • Total net sales were $239.8 million, a year-over-year increase of 70%, and reflect two-year growth of 63% compared to the fourth quarter of 2019, the most recent fourth quarter before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. This two-year growth rate is an improvement relative to the 58% two-year growth rate we reported for the third quarter of 2021 (compared to net sales in the third quarter of 2019) and a further improvement from the two-year growth rates we reported for the first and second quarters of 2021.
  • Gross margin was 54.8%, a year-over-year decrease of 116 basis points from 56.0% in the fourth quarter of 2020, and an increase of 189 basis points compared to 52.9% in the fourth quarter of 2019.
  • Net income was $29.4 million, a year-over-year increase of 55%, and reflects two-year growth of 250% compared to net income in the fourth quarter of 2019.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $34.2 million, a year-over-year increase of 82%, and reflects two-year growth of 150% compared to Adjusted EBITDA in the fourth quarter of 2019.
  • Diluted earnings per share (EPS) was $0.39, a year-over-year increase of 50%, and reflects two-year growth of 225% compared to EPS in the fourth quarter of 2019.
  • Tax rate: Net income and earnings per share in the fourth quarters of 2021 and 2020 benefited from lower-than-normal effective tax rates of 7% and (19%), respectively, primarily due to excess tax benefits realized as a result of the exercise of non-qualified stock options. Absent such discrete tax items in future quarters, we expect our effective tax rate to be around 25%.

Additional Fourth Quarter 2021 Net Sales Commentary

  • REVOLVE segment net sales were $200.0 million, a year-over-year increase of 68%, and reflect two-year growth of 60% compared to REVOLVE segment net sales in the fourth quarter of 2019.
  • FWRD segment net sales were $39.8 million, a year-over-year increase of 83%, and reflect two-year growth of 78% compared to FWRD segment net sales in the fourth quarter of 2019.
  • Domestic net sales increased 80% year-over-year and international net sales increased 34% year-over-year, and reflect two-year growth of 62% and 67% compared to domestic and international net sales in the fourth quarter of 2019, respectively.

Results Since the End of Fourth Quarter 2021

Our strong growth continued into the first quarter of 2022. During the approximately seven weeks since December 31, 2021 (January 1, 2022 to February 20, 2022), net sales increased year-over-year at a growth rate in the same zone as our 70% year-over-year growth in net sales during the fourth quarter of 2021.

Modeling Note for Net Sales Growth in First Quarter 2022

For the purposes of modeling expected year-over-year growth in net sales for the first quarter ending March 31, 2022, it is important to consider the prior-year monthly net sales comparisons that will become more difficult for the remainder of the first quarter. As previously disclosed, our net sales during the months of January 2021 and February 2021 increased year-over-year by a low single digit percentage. By comparison, our net sales during March 2021 increased by a much faster rate year-over-year, resulting in the 22% year-over-year growth reported for the full first quarter of 2021 and confirming that our year-over-year comparisons for the remainder of the first quarter of 2022 will be more difficult than for the quarter-to-date period referenced above. Additionally, the month of March 2021 contributed the highest monthly net sales in the first quarter of 2021 by a wide margin.

Additional trend information regarding The Revolve Group's fourth quarter and full year 2021 financial results and operating metrics is available in the Q4 and FY 2021 Financial Highlights presentation available on the company’s investor relations website athttps://investors.revolve.com.

Because the COVID-19 pandemic had a materially negative impact on our results for the year ended December 31, 2020, we are also providing results for the year ended December 31, 2019 as supplemental information that may provide a useful reference point for investors.

Additional Full Year 2021 Metrics and Results Commentary

  • Total net sales were $891.4 million, a year-over-year increase of 54%, and reflect two-year growth of 48% compared to 2019, the most recent year before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Gross margin was 55.0%, a year-over-year increase of 237 basis points from 52.6% in 2020, and an increase of 138 basis points from 53.6% in 2019.
  • Net income was $99.8 million, a year-over-year increase of 76%, and reflects two-year growth of 180% compared to net income in 2019.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $114.6 million, a year-over-year increase of 65%, and reflects two-year growth of 106% compared to Adjusted EBITDA in 2019.
  • Diluted earnings per share (EPS) was $1.34, a year-over-year increase of 70%.
  • Tax rate: Net income and earnings per share in 2021 and 2020 benefited from a lower-than-normal effective tax rate of 5% for both years, primarily due to excess tax benefits realized as a result of the exercise of non-qualified stock options. Absent such discrete tax items in future quarters, we expect our effective tax rate to be around 25%.

Additional Full Year 2021 Net Sales Commentary

  • REVOLVE segment net sales were $745.1 million, a year-over-year increase of 49%, and reflect two-year growth of 41% compared to REVOLVE segment net sales in 2019.
  • FWRD segment net sales were $146.3 million, a year-over-year increase of 83%, and reflect two-year growth of 98% compared to FWRD segment net sales in 2019.
  • Domestic net sales increased 55% year-over-year and international net salesincreased 46% year over year, and reflect two-year growth compared to domestic and international net sales in 2019 of 44% and 68%, respectively.

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet

  • Net cash provided by operating activities was $62.3 million and free cash flow was $60.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2021. The 16% year-over-year decrease in each of net cash provided by operating activities and free cash flow reflect meaningful inventory investments to support the significant growth in demand for our products in 2021 compared to a $9.0 million reduction in inventory during 2020 due to our aggressive initial COVID-19 response to manage inventory receipts and liquidity.
  • Balance sheet: The strong cash flow in 2021 has further strengthened our balance sheet and liquidity. Cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2021 were $218.5 million, an increase of $72.4 million, or 50%, from $146.0 million as of December 31, 2020. Our balance sheet as of December 31, 2021 remains debt free.
  • Inventory as of December 31, 2021 was $171.3 million, an increase of $76.0 million year-over-year, or 80%, from the December 31, 2020 inventory balance of $95.3 million.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Other Operating Metrics

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States of America (GAAP), we reference in this press release and the accompanying tables the following non-GAAP financial measures: Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow.

The presentation of this non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, and our non-GAAP measures may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

We use these non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate our operating performance, generate future operating plans and make strategic decisions regarding the allocation of capital. Our management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our performance and liquidity by excluding certain expenses that may not be indicative of our ongoing core operating performance. We believe that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing our performance and when analyzing historical performance and liquidity and when planning, forecasting, and analyzing future periods.

For a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP measures, please see the tables captioned “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” included at the end of this release.

Definitions of our non-GAAP financial measures and other operating metrics are presented below.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that we calculate as net income before other expense (income), net; taxes; and depreciation and amortization; adjusted to exclude the effects of equity-based compensation expense and certain non-routine items. Adjusted EBITDA is a key measure used by management to evaluate our operating performance, generate future operating plans and make strategic decisions regarding the allocation of capital. In particular, the exclusion of certain expenses in calculating Adjusted EBITDA facilitates operating performance comparisons on a period-to-period basis and, in the case of exclusion of the impact of equity-based compensation, excludes an item that we do not consider to be indicative of our core operating performance.

Free Cash Flow

Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure that we calculate as net cash provided by operating activities less cash used in purchases of property and equipment. We view free cash flow as an important indicator of our liquidity because it measures the amount of cash we generate. Free cash flow also reflects changes in working capital.

Active Customers

We define an active customer as a unique customer account from which a purchase was made across our platform at least once in the preceding 12-month period. In any particular period, we determine our number of active customers by counting the total number of customers who have made at least one purchase in the preceding 12-month period, measured from the last date of such period. We view the number of active customers as a key indicator of our growth, the reach of our sites, the value proposition and consumer awareness of our brand, the continued use of our sites by our customers and their desire to purchase our products

Total Orders Placed

We define total orders placed as the total number of customer orders placed by our customers across our platform in any period. We view total orders placed as a key indicator of the velocity of our business and an indication of the desirability of our products and sites to our customers. Total orders placed, together with average order value, is an indicator of the net sales we expect to recognize in a given period.

Average Order Value

We define average order value as the sum of the total gross sales from our sites in a given period, prior to product returns, divided by the total orders placed in that period. We believe our high average order value demonstrates the premium nature of our product. Average order value varies depending on the site through which we sell merchandise, the percentage of sales at full price, and for sales at less than full price, the level of markdowns on these products, and the number of units per order.
