Overview of First Quarter 2018 Results

Operating Metrics

Transactions increased 18% to 2.5 million in the first quarter of 2018 from 2.1 million in 1Q17, while gross bookings rose 21% to $1,231.5 million in 1Q18, from $1,019.1 million in the year-ago period. Macroeconomic conditions remained generally favorable across the countries in which Despegar operates, although growing at a slower pace when compared with first half of 2017.

The Company’s business is organized into two segments: (1) Air, which consists of the sale of airline tickets, and (2) Packages, Hotels and Other Travel Products, which consists of travel packages (the bundling of two or more products together), as well as stand-alone sales of accommodations (including hotels and vacation rentals), car rentals, bus tickets, cruise tickets, travel insurance and destination services.

Despegar’s strategy to drive growth in higher-margin Packages, Hotels and Other Travel Products segment maintains momentum, reaching 46% of transactions up from 41% in 1Q17. The share of Air transactions was 54% in 1Q18 compared with 59% in the first quarter of 2017. The average selling price (“ASP”) in 1Q18 increased 2% year-over-year to $490 per transaction, reflecting continued product mix shift to higher ASP packages and higher supplier price increases within similar product segments. Brazil remains the largest market by transactions for Despegar, accounting for 40% of total transactions, up 14% year-over-year in 1Q18. Transactions increased 21% year-over-year in Argentina and 29% year-over-year in Mexico in the first quarter of 2018.

During 1Q18, the number of transactions via mobile rose 37% year-over-year, with 31% of all transactions completed on the mobile platform, up from 27% in 1Q17. As of March 31, 2018, Despegar’s mobile applications had over 41 million cumulative downloads.

Revenue

Commencing with first quarter 2018 results, Despegar adopted Accounting Standards Update 2014-09. Under the new revenue recognition standard, the Company is now recognizing revenue from transactions once its performance obligation has been satisfied. Consequently, and for comparative purposes, the Company is presenting in this report Pro-forma 1Q17 figures adjusted to reflect the revenue recognition criteria adopted starting 1Q18. See “New Revenue Recognition Standard” on page 6 for more detail.

During the first quarter of 2018, total revenue increased 22% to $148.6 million, from pro forma $121.7 million in 1Q17, reflecting solid growth in Packages, Hotels & Other Travel Products. Total revenue margin increased 13 basis points year-on-year, to 12.1% in 1Q18, driven by the ongoing shift to higher-margin Packages, Hotels and Other Travel Products which offset the planned selective reduction in Air customer fees implemented in 3Q17 and continued to date.

  • Air segment revenue was $60.9 million in 1Q18, increasing 7% year-over-year from pro forma $56.8 million in the year-ago period. Transactions were up 9% year-on-year resulting in market share gains in the air segment despite increased competition and slower overall market growth. Volume growth was partially offset by a 2% decrease in average revenue per transaction resulting from the Company’s strategy of selectively lowering air customer fees in several markets in 1Q18 to drive market share gains and provide additional cross-selling opportunities.
  • Packages, Hotels & Other Travel Products segment revenue increased 35% in 1Q18 to $87.7 million, from pro forma $64.9 million in 1Q17, as a result of increases of 30% in the number of transactions and 4% in revenue per transaction, driven mainly by a higher revenue margin, reflecting a growing share of higher-margin packages.  The Packages, Hotels and Other Travel Products segment accounted for 59% of total revenue in 1Q18, up from 53% in the same period of the prior year.

Cost of Revenue and Gross Profit

Cost of revenue, which primarily consists of credit card processing fees, bank fees related to customer financing installment plans offered and fulfillment center expenses, rose 40% to $43.6 million in 1Q18 from $31.1 million in the first quarter of 2017. As a percentage of revenue, cost of revenue increased by 378 basis points to 29.4% from 25.6% in 1Q17, mainly reflecting a higher mix of transactions using installments and higher costs from customer financing installment plans, a marketing tool that the company utilizes to drive conversion. Additionally, while the credit card fee rate remained stable, credit card merchant fee expense increased reflecting a higher mix of transactions where the Company was the credit card merchant of record rather than the airline supplier which allowed Despegar to offer more attractive customer financing options.

Gross Profit increased 16% year-on-year to $104.9 million in 1Q18.

Operating Expenses

Total operating expenses in 1Q18 rose 17% to $81.5 million, from $69.8 million in the comparable period a year ago, mainly reflecting higher selling and marketing expenses. As a percentage of revenue, total operating expenses declined 252 basis points to 54.9%, from 57.4% in 1Q18. The 482 basis point year-over-year decline in general and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenue, more than offset increases of 202 basis points in selling and marketing expenses and 28 basis points in technology and product development expenses.

  • Selling and marketing expenses of $46.4 million increased 31% as compared to 1Q17. As a percentage of revenue, selling and marketing expenses in 1Q18 were 31.2% compared to 29.2% in the same period of the prior year. The Company continues to make investments to build brand awareness and drive market share growth in an increasingly competitive landscape.
  • General and administrative (G&A) expenses decreased 16% year-over-year to $15.9 million, from $18.9 million in the first quarter of 2017, resulting from currency depreciation in Argentina during the period, lower bonus accrual, and a decrease in bad debt expense. Consequently, G&A as a percentage of revenues declined 482 basis points to 10.7% in 1Q18 from 15.5% in the first quarter of 2017.
  • Technology and product development expenses increased 25% year-over-year to $19.2 million in 1Q18, compared to $15.4 million in 1Q17 as a result of increased technology headcount. As a percentage of revenue, technology and product expenses increased by 28 basis points during the quarter to 12.9%.

Financial Income/Expenses

In the first quarter of 2018, the Company reported a net financial expense of $2.8 million compared to $6.2 million in 1Q17. The decrease was primarily due to lower foreign exchange losses from currency fluctuations and higher interest income from invested cash balances. Savings were partially offset by higher credit card receivable factoring expenses in Brazil as a result of the increase in gross bookings and customer use of installments.

Income Taxes

The company reported an income tax expense of $4.2 million in 1Q18, compared to $2.4 million in 1Q17 pro-forma. The effective tax rate in 1Q18 was 21%, compared to 17% in 1Q17 pro-forma. The higher rate in 1Q18 was primarily driven by our improving profitability and the depletion of tax loss carryforwards in certain countries.

Adjusted EBITDA & Margin

Adjusted EBITDA increased 10% to $27.3 million in 1Q18 from pro forma $24.8 million in the first quarter of 2017, with the margin contracting 198 basis points to 18.4% from 20.3% in the prior year period. The reduction in margin is primarily related to investments in marketing and installment options to grow the top line.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

Unrestricted cash and cash equivalents at March 31, 2018 were $382.3 million, compared to $371.0 million at December 31, 2017, reflecting cash flow generated during the three-months ended March 31, 2018.

Despegar generated positive cash flow from operating activities of $14.2 million compared to $18.0 million in 1Q17. This reduction was mainly due to an increase in VAT credits, other tax credits related to a technology incentive program and an increase in prepaid expenses to suppliers.

During the first quarter of 2018, the Company’s capital expenditures were $6.1 million compared to $4.9 million during 1Q17. Funds were primarily used for software and website development. Increase in restricted cash reflects an increase in IATA collateral requirements due to growing air ticket volumes and an increased mix of air transactions in which the Company was the credit card merchant of record. Additionally, the Company drew down local credit lines for hedging purposes.

New Revenue Recognition Standard

Commencing with first quarter 2018 results, Despegar adopted Accounting Standards Update 2014-09. Under the new revenue recognition standard, companies are permitted to recognize revenue from transactions once their performance obligation has been satisfied. As an intermediary between customers and travel suppliers, Despegar’s performance obligation is concluded at the completion of the transaction on Despegar’s platform at the time of booking.

The Company currently estimates that this change in revenue recognition timing will impact its annual 2018 revenue by approximately 2%, although the quarterly impact may be more significant. For example, a meaningful amount of travel is typically booked in the fourth quarter each year and is completed in the first quarter of the following year. Under the new revenue recognition standard, this revenue will be recognized in the fourth quarter at booking rather than in the first quarter of the following year at check-out, as it was under the previous revenue recognition standard.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This announcement includes certain references to Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP financial measures. The Company defines:

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income/(loss) exclusive of financial income/(expense), income tax, depreciation, amortization and share-based compensation expense.

Free cash flow is defined as cashflow from operating activities less capital expenditures including capitalized software.

Adjusted EBITDA and Free cash flow are not measures recognized under U.S. GAAP. Accordingly, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on this information and should note that these measures as calculated by the Company, may differ materially from similarly titled measures reported by other companies, including its competitors. Adjusted EBITDA margin refers to Adjusted EBITDA as defined above divided by revenue.

Definitions and concepts

Average Selling Price (ASP): reflects gross bookings divided by the total number of transactions.

Gross Bookings: Gross bookings is an operating measure that represents the aggregate purchase price of all travel products booked by the Company’s customers through its platform during a given period. The Company generates substantially all of its revenue from commissions and other incentive payments paid by its suppliers and service fees paid by its customers for transactions through its platform, and, as a result, it monitors gross bookings as an important indicator of its ability to generate revenue.

Number of Transactions: The number of transactions for a period is an operating measure that represents the total number of customer orders completed on our platform in such period. The number of transactions is an important metric because it is an indicator of the level of engagement with the Company’s customers and the scale of its business from period to period but, unlike gross bookings, the number of transactions is independent of the average selling price of each transaction, which can be influenced by fluctuations in currency exchange rates among other factors.

Revenue: The Company reports its revenue on a net basis, deducting cancellations and amounts that it collects as sales taxes. Despegar derives substantially all of its revenue from commissions and other incentive payments paid by its suppliers and service fees paid by its customers for transactions through its platform. To a lesser extent, Despegar also derives revenue from the sale of third-party advertisements on its websites and from certain suppliers when their brands appears in the Company advertisements in mass media.

Revenue Margin: calculated as revenue divided by gross bookings.

Seasonality: Despegar’s financial results experience fluctuations due to seasonal variations in demand for travel services. Bookings for vacation and leisure travel are generally higher during the fourth quarter, although to date and prior to the revenue recognition change beginning in the first quarter of 2018, the Company has recognized more revenue associated with those bookings in the first quarter of each year. Latin American travelers, particularly leisure travelers, who are Despegar’s primary customers, tend to travel most frequently at the end of the fourth quarter and during the first quarter of each year.
