Waitr Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: WTRH) (“Waitr” or the “Company”), soon to be known as ASAP, an on-demand online ordering technology platform for restaurants and stadiums, today reported financial results for the second quarter of 2022.

Second Quarter 2022 Highlights

  • Revenue for the second quarter of 2022 was $31.2 million, compared to $49.2 million for the second quarter of 2021, due in part to macroeconomic factors in our markets affecting order flow. For the six months ended June 30, 2022, revenue was $66.2 million, compared to $100.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021. In addition to macroeconomic factors affecting order volumes, the lack of stimulus payments in the first quarter of 2022, unlike those distributed late in the first quarter of 2021, also contributed to the decline in revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2022 compared to the six months ended June 30, 2021.
  • Net loss for the second quarter of 2022 was $11.7 million, or $0.07 per share, compared to a net loss of $5.6 million in the second quarter of 2021, or $0.05 per share.
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 for the second quarter of 2022 was a loss of $3.6 million, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $2.5 million for the second quarter of 2021. Approximately $1.0 million of the loss for the second quarter of 2022 is from an increase to the IBNR2 insurance reserve.
  • As of June 30, 2022, cash on hand was $28.2 million.

During the second quarter of 2022, macroeconomic factors, including inflation and higher gas prices along with competition, continued to impact our markets and order volumes. We focused our efforts on executing certain initiatives to transition the business to a ‘deliver anything ASAP’ model, including our collaboration with 7-Eleven in June 2022. The addition of 7-Eleven locations to our platform created a new level of convenience for our customers. In July 2022, we entered into agreements to begin delivering products from retailers in various industries such as apparel, luxury goods, sporting goods, alcohol, auto parts, electrical products and more, with a vision to deliver ‘anything’ to consumers, same day, from any type of business. In addition to providing our customers with access to a broader range of products, this expansion of services allows the Company to provide more earning opportunities to its independent contractor driver base.

July 2022 marked the start of our official transition to rebrand and change the Company name to ASAP. In addition to expanding the variety of products we deliver, we entered into a multi-year sponsorship agreement, partnering with the New York Giants, the New York Jets and MetLife Stadium, to serve as the exclusive mobile ordering platform at MetLife Stadium. Fans will be able to use the ASAP platform to place mobile orders at all Jets and Giants home games with our platform integrated into each team’s app for a seamless mobile ordering experience from concession stands throughout MetLife Stadium. For other events, ASAP’s mobile ordering will be done directly through our proprietary ASAP stadium ordering application. Our stadium ordering technology is currently active at the University of Alabama, Louisiana State University and the New Orleans Saints Superdome, and we expect to add new venues across the nation over time.

In connection with our rebranding as ASAP, we are shifting to a single platform and application which, once completed, should provide cost and resource savings. Moreover, the shift to one platform should allow the Company to spend more time on various feature-enhancements and the streamlining of service levels. We continue to use our instant pay technology that we built for our independent contractor drivers, and intend to commercialize and rollout the technology to restaurant partners and potentially to other verticals. Additionally, we are pleased with our progress in facilitating merchants’ access to third-party payment providers and expect to continue to see growth of that revenue stream.

During the second quarter of 2022, we negotiated the pay-down of approximately $21 million of debt and the extension of our long-term debt maturity by six months to May 15, 2024. In addition, in July 2022, we entered into an agreement with the lenders under our Credit Agreement, pursuant to which the lenders converted approximately $6.8 million of notes into common stock. As a result, the lenders currently beneficially own approximately 16.3% of the Company’s common stock (excluding beneficial ownership in common stock underlying warrants), reinforcing their commitment to the Company’s management team and strategy. Outstanding long-term debt as of August 8, 2022 totaled approximately $57.0 million, compared to $84.5 million at December 31, 2021.

“I am proud of our team and the foundation we are building for the long term success of the Company,” said Carl Grimstad, CEO and Chairman of the Board. “With the most recent conversion, debt has decreased by over $70 million, which is approximately 56% since January 1, 2020. Our broader view towards our business strategy should allow the Company to better withstand marketplace swings in our industry in the future. Our focus is to be able to deliver a diverse set of products from any vendor. This, along with our best-in-class proprietary stadium technology, should help us strategically expand our operations. There is still work to be done in enhancing all systems, implementing the rebrand of the Company and migrating to a single application, but our team is making great strides,” said Mr. Grimstad.

Second Quarter 2022 Key Business Metrics

  • Average Daily Orders were 18,070 for the second quarter of 2022 and 20,475 for the six months ended June 30, 2022.
  • Active Diners as of August 8, 2022 were approximately 1.3 million.

WAITR HOLDINGS INC. NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURE ADJUSTED EBITDA (In thousands) (Unaudited)

Adjusted EBITDA is not required by, nor presented in accordance with, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”). We define Adjusted EBITDA as net loss adjusted to exclude interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense, goodwill impairment, stock-based compensation expense, (gain) loss on disposal of assets, induced conversion expense related to Notes, change in fair value of contingent consideration liability, acquisition transaction related expenditures and other non-recurring adjustments and accrued legal contingency and reserve. We use this non-GAAP financial measure as a key performance measure because we believe it facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period by excluding potential differences primarily caused by variations in capital structures, tax positions, the impact of acquisitions and restructuring, the impact of depreciation and amortization expense on our fixed assets, the impact of goodwill impairment and stock-based compensation expense and other items that do not reflect our core operations. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net loss or other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of net loss to Adjusted EBITDA is provided below:

WAITR HOLDINGS INC. NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES ADJUSTED NET LOSS AND ADJUSTED LOSS PER DILUTED SHARE (In thousands, except share and per share data) (Unaudited)

Adjusted net loss and adjusted loss per diluted share are not required by, nor presented in accordance with, GAAP. We define adjusted loss per diluted share as adjusted net loss divided by our weighted average common shares outstanding - diluted. Adjusted net loss is calculated as net loss plus goodwill impairment, induced conversion expense related to Notes, change in fair value of contingent consideration liability, acquisition transaction related expenditures and other non-recurring adjustments and accrued legal contingency and reserve. We use these non-GAAP financial measures because we believe they facilitate period to period comparisons of operating performance, by excluding potential differences primarily caused by non-recurring items. Goodwill impairment, induced conversion expense related to Notes, change in fair value of contingent consideration liability, acquisition transaction related expenses and accrued legal contingency and reserve are considered non-recurring items. Adjusted net loss and adjusted loss per diluted share are not measurements of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net loss or loss per share or other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of net loss to adjusted net loss, along with adjusted loss per diluted share, is provided below:
