Share

MYT Netherlands Parent B.V. (NYSE: MYTE) (“Mytheresa” or the “Company”), the parent company of Mytheresa Group GmbH, today announced financial results for its first quarter of fiscal year 2022 ended September 30, 2021. The luxury multi-brand digital platform delivered another quarter of strong growth with continued strong profitability.

Michael Kliger, Chief Executive Officer of Mytheresa, said, "We are extremely satisfied with our Q1 FY22 results. We see the strong results again as affirmation of our unique and superior value proposition to customers and brand partners at a global level, as well as excellent operational execution. Q1 FY22 saw Mytheresa cement its position as one of the world's leading digital platforms for luxury fashion.”

Kliger continued, "The shift of consumer demand to online in luxury has clearly accelerated in recent months. We strongly believe this trend will continue in the post-pandemic world, probably reverting to the strong market growth rates we had seen before the pandemic. We will continue to deliver a superior customer experience and deepen our partnerships with the most coveted global brands. Given our strong financial momentum, excellent customer developments, and superior execution, we feel extremely confident to continue achieving strong results for full fiscal year 2022.”

ABOUT NON-IFRS FINANCIAL MEASURES AND OPERATING METRICS

We review a number of operating and financial metrics, including the following business and non-IFRS metrics, to evaluate our business, measure our performance, identify trends affecting our business, formulate business plans and make strategic decisions. We present Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Operating Income and Adjusted Net Income because they are frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in our industry. Further, we believe these measures are helpful in highlighting trends in our operating results, because they exclude the impact of items that are outside the control of management or not reflective of our ongoing operations and performance. Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Operating Income, and Adjusted Net Income have limitations, because they exclude certain types of expenses. We use Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Net Income as supplemental information only. You are encouraged to evaluate each adjustment and the reasons we consider it appropriate for supplemental analysis.

Our non-IFRS financial measures include:

  • Adjusted EBITDA is a non-IFRS financial measure that we calculate as net income before finance expense (net), taxes, and depreciation and amortization, adjusted to exclude U.S. sales tax expenditures temporarily borne by us through the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2020, IPO preparation and transaction costs and share-based compensation expenses.
  • Adjusted Operating Income is a non-IFRS financial measure that we calculate as operating income, adjusted to exclude U.S. sales tax expenditures temporarily borne by us through the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2020, any IPO preparation and transaction costs and share-based compensation expenses.
  • Adjusted Net Income is a non-IFRS financial measure that we calculate as net income, adjusted to exclude U.S. sales tax expenditures temporarily borne by us, finance expenses on our Shareholder Loans, IPO preparation and transaction costs, share-based compensation expenses and related income tax effects.

We are not able to forecast net income (loss) on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable efforts due to the high variability and difficulty in predicting certain items that affect net income (loss), including, but not limited to, Income taxes and Interest expense and, as a result, are unable to provide a reconciliation to forecasted Adjusted EBITDA.

Gross Merchandise Value (GMV) means the total Euro value of orders processed. GMV is inclusive of merchandise value, shipping and duty. It is net of returns, value added taxes and cancellations. We view GMV as an operating metric.

Represents non-recurring professional fees, including consulting, legal and accounting fees, related to this offering, which are classified within selling, general and administrative expenses.

(2)

In fiscal 2021, with the effective IPO, certain key management personnel received a one-time granted share-based compensation, these expenses will be recognized upon defined vesting schedules in the future periods. We do not consider these expenses to be indicative of our core operating performance.

(3)

Our Adjusted Net Income excludes finance expenses associated with our Shareholder Loans, which we do not consider to be indicative of our core performance. We did not receive any cash proceeds under the Shareholder Loans, which originated as part of the Neiman Marcus acquisition in 2014. In January 2021, we repaid our Shareholder Loans (principal plus outstanding interest) using a portion of the net proceeds from our initial public offering.

(4)

Reflects adjustments to historical income tax expense to reflect changes in taxable income for each of the periods presented due to changes in finance expenses related to the Shareholder Loans, assuming a statutory tax rate of 27.8%.
