NEW YORK: Kidpik Corp. (“KIDPIK” or the “Company”), an online clothing subscription-based e-commerce company, today reported its financial results for the first quarter 2024 ended March 30, 2024.

First Quarter 2024 Highlights:

  • Revenue, net: was $2.2 million, a year over year decrease of 44.4%.
  • Gross margin: was 69.9%, compared to 59.8% in the first quarter of 2023.
  • Shipped items: were 195,000 items, compared to 340,000 shipped items in the first quarter of 2023.
  • Average shipment keep rate: increased to 78.2%, compared to 68.1% in the first quarter of 2023.
  • Net Loss: was $1.8 million or $0.94 per share.
  • Adjusted EBITDA: was a loss of $1.4 million (see “Non-GAAP Financial Measures”, below).

“As previously disclosed, on March 29, 2024, we entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger and Reorganization (the “Merger Agreement”) with Nina Footwear Corp., a Delaware corporation (“Nina Footwear”), and Kidpik Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of Kidpik (“Merger Sub”), whereby Nina Footwear will merge with and into Merger Sub, with Nina Footwear continuing as the surviving entity (the “Merger”). While we work towards closing the Merger, we have ceased the purchase of new inventory and are working to clear current inventory in anticipation of the combination with Nina Footwear,” stated Mr. Ezra Dabah, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer.

“We and Nina Footwear remain committed to closing the Merger, a transaction which we believe will increase Kidpik’s revenue, cashflow and prospects, while also strengthening Kidpik’s balance sheet and significantly increasing stockholder value,” said Mr. Dabah.

The closing of the Merger is subject to customary closing conditions, including the preparation and mailing of a proxy statement by Kidpik, and the receipt of required stockholder approvals from Kidpik and Nina Footwear stockholders, and is expected to close in the third quarter of 2024.

Kidpik will not be holding an earnings call to discuss first quarter 2024, as the Company continues to move forward with the Merger.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We report our financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”). However, management believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures provide users of our financial information with additional useful information in evaluating our performance. We believe that adjusted EBITDA is frequently used by investors and securities analysts in their evaluations of companies, and that this supplemental measure facilitates comparisons between companies. This non-GAAP financial measure may be different than similarly titled measures used by other companies. We calculate Adjusted EBITDA as net loss before other expense, net, interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, adjusted to exclude the effects of equity-based compensation expense, and certain non-routine items. We have provided below a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss, the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure.

Our non-GAAP financial measure should not be considered in isolation from, or as substitutes for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are:

  • Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect cash capital expenditure requirements for such replacements or for new capital expenditure requirements;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not consider the potentially dilutive impact of equity-based compensation;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect tax payments that may represent a reduction in cash available to us;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect certain non-routine items that may represent a reduction in cash available to us; and
  • Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure.

We compensate for these limitations by providing a reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure to the most comparable GAAP measure. We encourage investors and others to review our business, results of operations, and financial information in their entirety, not to rely on any single financial measure, and to view this non-GAAP measure in conjunction with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the section titled “Unaudited Reconciliation of Net Loss to Adjusted Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA),” included at the end of this release.

Additional Information and Where to Find It

In connection with the proposed Merger, Kidpik intends to file a proxy statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Proxy Statement”), that will be distributed to holders of Kidpik’s common stock in connection with its solicitation of proxies for the vote by Kidpik’s stockholders with respect to the proposed Merger and other matters as may be described in the Proxy Statement. The Proxy Statement, when it is filed and mailed to stockholders, will contain important information about the proposed Merger and the other matters to be voted upon at a meeting of Kidpik’s stockholders to be held to approve the proposed Merger and other matters (the “Merger Meeting”). Kidpik may also file other documents with the SEC regarding the proposed Merger. Kidpik stockholders and other interested persons are advised to read, when available, the Proxy Statement, as well as any amendments or supplements thereto, because they will contain important information about the proposed Merger. When available, the definitive Proxy Statement will be mailed to Kidpik stockholders as of a record date to be established for voting on the proposed Merger and the other matters to be voted upon at the Merger Meeting.
