DENVER, April 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ANGI Homeservices (NASDAQ: ANGI) released preliminary selected financial information for its first quarter today. A letter to IAC shareholders from IAC’s CEO Joey Levin released on April 6, 2020, which includes a discussion of ANGI Homeservices, was posted on the Investor Relations section of IAC’s website at www.iac.com/Investors.
Based on information available, ANGI Homeservices expects for Q1 2020:
- Revenue in the range of $340-$345 million
- Operating loss in the range of $15-$20 million
- Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $30-$35 million
As of March 31, 2020, ANGI had $384.2 million in cash and cash equivalents, $244.1 million of debt, the substantial majority of which is due in November 2023, and $250 million available under its revolving credit facility, which expires in November 2023. Accordingly, we believe ANGI has ample access to capital to navigate current and coming economic pressures.
“We are in a strong position to navigate these unprecedented times,” said Brandon Ridenour, CEO of ANGI Homeservices. “I’m proud of the essential work our local service pros are doing every day. We will continue to stand by our employees, homeowners and the local businesses who keep their homes safe.”
ANGI Homeservices is also withdrawing its prior full year 2020 guidance due to the impact of COVID-19 on its business. The Company is unable to provide updated full year 2020 guidance given the uncertainties surrounding the impact of COVID-19 on its business, which may include the economic impact on consumers and the willingness of homeowners and service professionals to resume contact.
As of the date of this release, the Company has not yet completed its financial close process for the quarter.
During the course of the financial close process, the Company may identify items that would require it to make adjustments, which may be material, to the information presented above. The Company expects to release its full fiscal first quarter results in early May, 2020.

ANGI HOMESERVICES PRINCIPLES OF FINANCIAL REPORTING
ANGI Homeservices reports Adjusted EBITDA, which is a supplemental measure to GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA is among the primary metrics by which we evaluate the performance of our businesses, on which our internal budgets are based and by which management is compensated. We believe that investors should have access to, and we are obligated to provide, the same set of tools that we use in analyzing our results. This non-GAAP measure should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, however, should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results. ANGI Homeservices endeavors to compensate for the limitations of this non-GAAP measure presented by providing the comparable GAAP measures with equal or greater prominence and descriptions of the reconciling items, including quantifying such items, to derive the non-GAAP measure. We encourage investors to examine the reconciling adjustments between the GAAP and non-GAAP measure, which are included in this release. Interim results are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for a full year.
Definition of Non-GAAP Measure
Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (Adjusted EBITDA) is defined as operating income excluding: (1) stock-based compensation expense; (2) depreciation; and (3) acquisition-related items consisting of amortization of intangible assets and impairments of goodwill and intangible assets, if applicable. We believe this measure is useful for analysts and investors as this measure allows a more meaningful comparison between our performance and that of our competitors. The above items are excluded from our Adjusted EBITDA measure because these items are non-cash in nature. Adjusted EBITDA has certain limitations because it excludes the impact of certain expenses.
Non-Cash Expenses That Are Excluded From Adjusted EBITDA
Stock-based compensation expense consists principally of expense associated with the grants, including unvested grants assumed in acquisitions, of SARs, RSUs, stock options and performance-based RSUs. These expenses are not paid in cash and we view the economic cost of stock-based awards to be the dilution to our share base; we also include the related shares in our fully diluted shares outstanding for GAAP earnings per share using the treasury stock method. Performance-based RSUs are included only to the extent the applicable performance condition(s) have been met (assuming the end of the reporting period is the end of the contingency period). To the extent stock-based awards are settled on a net basis, the Company remits the required tax-withholding amounts from its current funds.
Depreciation is a non-cash expense relating to our capitalized software, leasehold improvements and equipment and is computed using the straight-line method to allocate the cost of depreciable assets to operations over their estimated useful lives, or, in the case of leasehold improvements, the lease term, if shorter.
Amortization of intangible assets are non-cash expenses related primarily to acquisitions. At the time of an acquisition, the identifiable definite-lived intangible assets of the acquired company, such as service professional relationships, technology, memberships, customer lists and user base and trade names, are valued and amortized over their estimated lives. Value is also assigned to acquired indefinite-lived intangible assets, which comprise trade names and trademarks, and goodwill that are not subject to amortization. An impairment is recorded when the carrying value of an intangible asset or goodwill exceeds its fair value. We believe that intangible assets represent costs incurred by the acquired company to build value prior to acquisition and the related amortization and impairment charges of intangible assets or goodwill, if applicable, are not ongoing costs of doing business.
