Katapult Grows Fourth Quarter Gross Originations by 13% Year-Over-Year; Second Highest Gross Originations Volume in Company History

Fifth Consecutive Quarter of Year-Over-Year Gross Originations Growth; Non-Wayfair Gross Originations Grow ~30% in Q4
Revenue Grows ~16% Year-Over-Year in Q4
Full Year 2024 Outlook Includes At Least 10% Gross Originations and Revenue Growth

PLANO, Texas, March 14, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Katapult Holdings, Inc. (“Katapult” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: KPLT), an e-commerce-focused financial technology company, today reported its financial results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2023.

“During the fourth quarter, we extended our track record of growth by delivering double-digit, year-over-year increases in gross originations and revenue. This success was driven by strong execution in all key areas of our business and we’re very proud of our team’s hard work,” said Orlando Zayas, CEO of Katapult. “From new direct integrations with merchant partners such as Lenovo and Grown Brilliance, to expanding Katapult Pay by onboarding retailers like Walmart, consumers can now use a Katapult lease-to-own product to shop for just about any durable good they want. We believe our value proposition - which includes transparent pricing, fair terms and no late fees, ever - stands out from the competition, and consumers seem to agree. During 2023, we grew new customers by about 15% and had a customer repeat rate of approximately 60%, two metrics that illustrate how well our lease-to-own products are resonating with consumers across the US.

“Our fourth quarter performance capped off a very strong 2023 for Katapult, and we believe we are well positioned for continued growth in 2024,” continued Zayas. “We grew our business in 2023, during a time in which many of our competitors saw their businesses contract. This distinction gives us confidence that our product is uniquely meeting the needs of consumers and our merchant partners. During 2024 we believe that we can make the customer journey even easier by further enhancing our search experience and merchant selection. We believe that these enhancements coupled with our relentless focus on offering unmatched value to consumers, will allow us to continue to build long-term relationships with customers that will benefit both Katapult and our merchant partners.”

Fourth Quarter 2023 Financial Highlights

(All comparisons are year-over-year unless stated otherwise.) Fourth quarter net loss includes $4.2 million of out of period adjustments that were identified during the year ended December 31, 2023 and reflects the correction of immaterial errors related to cost of revenues, sales tax, rental revenue and operating expenses. There is also a $1.2 million cash impact related to sales tax. Fourth quarter Adjusted EBITDA includes an add back of these $4.2 million out of period adjustments.

  • Gross originations were $67.5 million, an increase of 13.0%
  • Total revenue was $56.7 million, an increase of 16.1%
  • Our fourth quarter total operating expenses were impacted by a $7 million, net expense we recorded in connection with our negotiations to settle the two class action lawsuits that have been pending in New York and Delaware since 2021 and 2022, respectively, which may be satisfied in a combination of cash and shares. In addition, we have recorded a $5 million receivable for our insurance policy payment. In total, we recorded a $12 million liability in connection with the potential settlement. We have not yet and may not reach a settlement in the future with these parties on these terms or at all. Further, any settlement agreement is subject to court approval by the Delaware and New York courts, respectively. Although the settlement negotiations are ongoing, given the status of the settlement talks we are required under GAAP to accrue for the liability in connection to the potential settlement.
  • Total operating expenses in the fourth quarter increased 14.5%. Excluding the one-time litigation expense, fourth quarter operating expenses would have been down 27.8%. Fixed cash operating expenses2 were down approximately 35.6%
  • Net loss was $18.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2023 compared with net loss of $14.4 million reported for the fourth quarter of 2022. The increase in fourth quarter 2023 net loss was driven primarily by:
    • The one-time $7.0 million, net expense related to pending class action litigation; and
    • The $4.2 million out of period accounting adjustments;
    • These increased expenses were partially offset by a $4.6 million decrease (excluding the one-time estimated litigation expense) in operating expenses driven by our continued focus on disciplined expense management; and
    • A $4.1 million decrease in interest expense mainly driven by a $25 million paydown of the outstanding principal of the term loan in the first quarter of 2023
  • Adjusted net loss2 improved to $6.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2023 compared with an adjusted net loss of $13.4 million reported for the fourth quarter of 2022
  • Adjusted EBITDA2 loss improved to 0.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2023 compared to an Adjusted EBITDA2 loss of $5.0 million in the prior year period
  • Katapult ended the quarter with total cash and cash equivalents of $28.8 million, which includes $7.4 million of restricted cash and $60.7 million in outstanding debt on its credit facility. Cash used during the quarter was impacted by a payment delay with the Company’s third-party lease verification vendor in December 2023, which was corrected in January 2024. Excluding the delay, and on an adjusted basis, Katapult would have ended the quarter with total cash and cash equivalents of $38.4 million, including the $7.4 million in restricted cash and $70.3 million in outstanding debt on its credit facility.
  • Write-offs as a percentage of revenue were 9.6% in the fourth quarter of 2023 and remain within the Company’s 8% to 10% long-term target range. This is a 10bps improvement compared with 9.7% in the fourth quarter of 2022.

Full Year 2023 Financial Highlights

(All comparisons are year-over-year unless stated otherwise.) Similar to our fourth quarter results, full year 2023 net loss includes $1.8 million of out of period adjustments that reflect the correction of immaterial errors related to cost of revenues, sales tax, and rental revenue. These out of period adjustments were not added back to full year Adjusted EBITDA.

  • Gross originations were $226.6 million, an increase of 15.1%
  • Total revenue was $222.2 million, an increase of 4.8%
  • Net loss was $37.0 million, which compares favorably to net loss of $37.9 million reported for 2022. While the net loss improvement was driven primarily by a decrease in operating expenses as well as a decrease in interest expense as a result of a $25 million paydown of the outstanding principal of the term loan in the first quarter of 2023, it also includes a one-time $7 million, net expense related to pending class action litigation
  • Total operating expenses were down 8.5%. Excluding the one-time estimated litigation settlement expense, full year 2023 operating expenses would have decreased by 19.0%. Fixed cash operating expenses were down approximately 25.9%
  • Adjusted net loss2 improved to $23.8 million compared with an adjusted net loss of $37.9 million reported for 2022
  • Adjusted EBITDA2 loss improved to $1.9 million compared to an Adjusted EBITDA2 loss of $16.7 million in 2022. 2023 Adjusted EBITDA was negatively impacted by the $1.8 million immaterial out of period adjustments referenced above

[1] Repeat rate is defined as the percentage of in-quarter originations from existing customers.

First Quarter and Full Year 2024 Business Outlook

The Company continues to navigate the evolving macro environment. While inflation remains stable, it is still having an impact on the spending habits and budgets of our core, target consumers. US retail traffic is down, interest rates, while stable, remain elevated, savings rates are low and credit card usage is high. Currently, it is unclear what impact these dynamics will have on prime lending standards and how much they will affect the US consumer’s access to credit. We continue to believe that we have a large addressable market of underserved, non-prime consumers, and it’s important to note that, lease-to-own solutions have historically benefited when prime credit options become less available.

Based on these dynamics and the operating plan in place for the full year 2024, Katapult expects to deliver the following results for the first quarter of 2024:

  • Year-over-year gross originations growth that is about flat compared with the first quarter of 2023
  • A 12 to 14% year-over-year increase in revenue
  • Meaningful improvement in Adjusted EBITDA performance compared with the first quarter of last year, reflecting our revenue growth expectation and a sustained reduction of fixed cash operating expenses. Fixed cash operating expenses are expected to be down approximately 15% year-over-year in the first quarter

For full year 2024, Katapult expects the following dynamics and results:

  • We expect to continue to expand our customer base and acquire new customers
  • Year-over-year growth in gross originations is expected to continue. For the full year we expect gross originations to grow at a rate of at least 10% and our first quarter performance should be the low point for the year.

    This outlook does not include any material impact from prime creditors tightening or loosening above us and assumes that there are no significant changes to the macro environment. The Company also expects gross originations to improve sequentially in the second half of 2024 compared to the first half of 2024 driven by growth in direct merchant originations and originations coming through Katapult Pay
  • We also expect to maintain strong credit quality in our portfolio. This will be driven by ongoing enhancements to our risk modeling, onboarding high quality new merchants through direct integrations, and repeat customers engaging with Katapult Pay
  • Revenue growth is expected to be at least 10%
  • Finally with the continued execution of our disciplined expense strategy combined with our growing top-line we expect to deliver another year of Adjusted EBITDA growth. We also expect Adjusted EBITDA to follow the seasonal patterns that we have seen historically.

"Our team worked really hard to deliver financial performance throughout 2023 that distinguishes us from our competitors,” said Nancy Walsh, CFO of Katapult. “We believe our results also demonstrate the power of our financial and operating models that allow us to grow the top-line without significantly adding to our expense structure. During 2023 we delivered more than $14.8 million more of Adjusted EBITDA compared to the year ended 2022 and we believe we are positioning the company for sustainable and profitable growth in the future. Regarding gross originations, we are successfully growing by taking market share with our largest merchant partner, Wayfair while continuing to diversify our growth drivers. Gross originations for Wayfair grew by more than 5% in 2023 and non-Wayfair gross originations grew by nearly 28% year-over-year. As a result, non-Wayfair gross originations increased to 48% of our 2023 gross originations compared with 43% for 2022. We have great merchant partners and are very pleased with their performance this year.

“Based on what we’re seeing in the broader market landscape, our gross originations performance through February appears to be in line with the macro environment. That said, we feel confident about our competitive position, our strategy and plan for 2024 and believe that gross originations growth will improve from the first quarter throughout the rest of the year,” added Walsh.

Related presentation materials will be available before the call on the Company’s Investor Relations page at The conference call will be broadcast live in listen-only mode and an archive of the webcast will be available for one year.

Key Performance Metrics

Katapult regularly reviews several metrics, including the following key metrics, to evaluate its business, measure its performance, identify trends affecting our business, formulate financial projections and make strategic decisions, which may also be useful to an investor: gross originations, total revenue, gross profit, adjusted gross profit and adjusted EBITDA.

Gross originations are defined as the retail price of the merchandise associated with lease-purchase agreements entered into during the period through the Katapult platform. Gross originations do not represent revenue earned. However, we believe this is a useful operating metric for both Katapult’s management and investors to use in assessing the volume of transactions that take place on Katapult’s platform.

Total revenue represents the summation of rental revenue and other revenue. Katapult measures this metric to assess the total view of pay through performance of its customers. Management believes looking at these components is useful to an investor as it helps to understand the total payment performance of customers.

Gross profit represents total revenue less cost of revenue, and is a measure presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"). See the “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” section below for a description and presentation of adjusted gross profit and adjusted EBITDA, which are non-GAAP measures utilized by management.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the financial measures presented in this press release and related conference call or webcast in accordance with GAAP, the Company also presents the following non-GAAP and other measures of financial performance: adjusted gross profit, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net loss and fixed cash operating expenses. The Company believes that for management and investors to more effectively compare core performance from period to period, the non-GAAP measures should exclude items that are not indicative of our results from ongoing business operations. The Company urges investors to consider non-GAAP measures only in conjunction with its GAAP financials and to review the reconciliation of the Company’s non-GAAP financial measures to its comparable GAAP financial measures, which are included in this press release.

Adjusted gross profit represents gross profit less variable operating expenses, which are servicing costs, and underwriting fees. Management believes that adjusted gross profit provides a meaningful understanding of one aspect of its performance specifically attributable to total revenue and the variable costs associated with total revenue.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure that is defined as net loss before interest expense and other fees, interest income, change in fair value of warrant liability, provision (benefit) for income taxes, depreciation and amortization on property and equipment and capitalized software, impairment of leased assets, loss on partial extinguishment of debt, stock-based compensation expense, estimated litigation settlement, net and out of period adjustments. We have made an adjustment to fourth quarter 2023 Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net loss for out of period adjustments described above.

Adjusted net loss is a non-GAAP measure that is defined as net loss before change in fair value of warrant liability, stock-based compensation expense, estimated litigation expense, net, and out of period adjustments.

Fixed cash operating expenses is a non-GAAP measure that is defined as operating expenses less depreciation and amortization on property and equipment and capitalized software, stock-based compensation expense, estimated litigation settlement, net, and variable lease costs such as servicing costs and underwriting fees. Management believes that fixed cash operating expenses provides a meaningful understanding of non-variable ongoing expenses.

Adjusted gross profit, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net loss are useful to an investor in evaluating the Company’s performance because these measures:

  • Are widely used to measure a company’s operating performance;
  • Are financial measurements that are used by rating agencies, lenders and other parties to evaluate the Company’s credit worthiness; and
  • Are used by the Company’s management for various purposes, including as measures of performance and as a basis for strategic planning and forecasting.

Management believes the use of non-GAAP financial measures, as a supplement to GAAP measures, is useful to investors in that they eliminate items that are not part of our core operations, highly variable or do not require a cash outlay, such as stock-based compensation expense. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures when evaluating operating performance and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures help indicate underlying trends in the business, are important in comparing current results with prior period results and are useful to investors and financial analysts in assessing operating performance. However, these non-GAAP measures exclude items that are significant in understanding and assessing Katapult’s financial results. Therefore, these measures should not be considered in isolation or as alternatives to revenue, net loss, gross profit, cash flows from operations or other measures of profitability, liquidity or performance under GAAP. You should be aware that Katapult’s presentation of these measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Reverse Stock Split

All share and per share amounts in the consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss and consolidated balance sheets have been retroactively adjusted for all periods presented to give effect to the reverse stock split that was effective as of July 27, 2023.

Out of Period Adjustments

The Company recorded out of period adjustments to correct immaterial errors related to cost of revenues and rental revenue on our consolidated statement of operations and comprehensive loss for the three months and year ended December 31, 2023 and property held for lease and accrued liabilities on our consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2023. The out of period adjustments include an additional net loss of $4.2 million and $1.8 million for the three months and year ended December 31, 2023, respectively. The Company has evaluated the effects of these errors, both qualitatively and quantitatively, and does not believe the corrections were material to any current or prior interim or annual periods that were affected. The Company will revise prior quarter amounts in subsequent periodic filings as revisions to prior year amounts and disclose the impact in the notes to the financial statements.
