Announces Corporate Debt Restructuring

Reiterates FY23 Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA Guidance. Committed to Delivering Free Cash Flow Breakeven in FY 2024

Significantly Improved Inventory In-Stock Position Drove Improved Customer Satisfaction and Retention; Sets Stage for FY24 Growth

NEW YORK, Dec. 05, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rent the Runway, Inc. (“Rent the Runway” or "RTR") (NASDAQ: RENT), the world’s first and largest shared designer closet platform, today reported financial results for the fiscal quarter ended October 31, 2023.

RTR also announced today that it has amended its credit facility (the "Amended Facility") with the existing lender and administrative agent (“Existing Lender”), as noted in our disclosed regulatory filings with the SEC. The amended facility eliminates interest (PIK and cash) for the next 6 fiscal quarters and reduces the minimum liquidity covenant from $50 million to $30 million, and makes additional updates with details described below.

"We are proud to announce significant modifications to our debt that are expected to provide meaningful flexibility for our business. We believe that the terms that we’ve agreed to with our longtime lender further enable Rent the Runway to achieve significant free cash flow before the debt’s maturity date, helping us to demonstrate the strength of our business model to the market--and, importantly, to grow,” said Jennifer Hyman, Co-Founder and CEO, Rent the Runway. “Meanwhile, we’ve made significant strides to improve our inventory in-stock position, which we believe represents a turning point for Rent the Runway. We believe nailing our assortment is a key unlock to subscriber growth in 2024 and beyond, and we have data to indicate that the adjustments we’ve made have already resulted in improved customer retention and satisfaction.”

"We believe that the debt modifications are proof of the constructive relationship we maintain with our lending partner and provide Rent the Runway with additional financial flexibility,” said Sid Thacker, Chief Financial Officer, Rent the Runway. “We began to see meaningful greenshoots in our data that our inventory strategies are working. We believe that these improvements, in conjunction with continued focus on our cost structure, provide the business with a solid foundation. Our focus remains on ensuring that Rent the Runway grows and reaches free cash flow breakeven for FY24."

The key terms of the Amended Facility Include:

  • Eliminating interest (PIK and cash) for 6 full fiscal quarters, beginning with Q4 2023. This means that the debt balances will remain unchanged over that period.
  • Reducing the minimum liquidity covenant from $50 million to $30 million.
  • Alignment on spend in key categories with mutually agreed quarterly and annual expense caps on inventory capex, marketing and fixed operating expenses.

Other key provisions of the Amended Facility remain unchanged from the existing facility. Additional information about the Amended Facility can be found in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by RTR with the SEC today and available on the RTR’s Investor Relations website (investors.renttherunway.com).

  • Revenue was $72.5 million, a (6.3)% decrease year-over-year from $77.4 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2022.
  • 131,725 ending Active Subscribers, representing a decrease of (2)% year-over-year from 134,240 at the end of the third quarter of fiscal year 2022.
  • 134,646 Average Active Subscribers representing an increase of 4% year-over-year from 129,186 at the end of the third quarter of fiscal year 2022.
  • 175,901 ending Total Subscribers, roughly flat year-over-year from 176,167 at the end of the third quarter of fiscal year 2022.
  • Gross Profit was $25.2 million, representing a decrease of (20.8)% from $31.8 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2022. Gross Margin was 34.8%, as compared to 41.1% in the third quarter of fiscal year 2022.
  • Net Loss was $(31.5) million, as compared to $(36.1) million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2022. Net Loss as a percentage of revenue was (43.4)%, as compared to (46.6)% in the third quarter of fiscal year 2022.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $3.5 million, as compared to $6.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2022. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 4.8%, as compared to 8.5% in the third quarter of fiscal year 2022.

Fiscal Third Quarter and Recent Business Highlights

  • Made Significant Progress on Customer Inventory Experience: Over-delivered against plans to increase inventory availability for our customers, driven by the depth strategy we announced last quarter. Q3 In-stock rate was 1400bps higher than 1H2023 and 1200bps higher than Q3 2022, which has contributed to the highest NPS scores we have seen since pre-COVID. Retention has grown month-over-month since August.
  • Launched Luxury Evening Wear: As one of many steps intended to reinvigorate our special-event rental business, today we unveiled “The Vault,” a new category of luxury evening wear styles from 20+ of the top designer brands in fashion, featuring new-to-site designers including Etro, Oscar de la Renta, Brandon Maxwell, Anna October, Giambattista Valli, Rachel Gilbert, Paris Georgia, Mara Hoffman, Zac Posen and Roland Mouret, exclusively for 4- or 8-day rentals.
  • Further Improved Operating Efficiencies: Further internationalized our technology team by relocating roles from NYC to Galway, Ireland, which is expected to result in lower technology costs for the remainder of fiscal year 2023 and for fiscal year 2024. RTR is leveraging our existing strong presence and technical leadership at our Galway, Ireland EU software development hub, which was established in 2019.
  • Grew Resale Business: Purchase rate, which we believe represents a significant sales and loyalty lever for customers, is up 50% in Q3 in units sold vs. last year. Subscribers are increasingly using Rent the Runway as a “try before you buy” sales channel, where she can understand how the product fits into her life by first wearing it through her subscription.
  • Drove Record Adoption of RTR Concierge Service: Our SMS-based luxury styling and support service, RTR Concierge, has reached an all-time high adoption rate with over 30% of new subscribers opting in as of the end of Q3. We have seen sustained retention improvements for people that use concierge across all terms of membership.

FY 2023 OUTLOOK

For the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2023, Rent the Runway expects:

  • Revenue of at least $74 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA Margin of at least 7%

For fiscal year 2023, Rent the Runway expects:

  • Revenue of at least $296.4 million, our fiscal year 2022 Revenue
  • Adjusted EBITDA Margin of 7% to 8%

In addition, we continue to expect to achieve free cash flow breakeven in FY2024 on a full year basis; however, we are withdrawing our previous Free Cash Flow outlook for FY2023.

Key Business and Financial Metrics

Active Subscribers is defined as the number of subscribers with an active membership as of the last day of any given period and excludes paused subscribers.

Average Active Subscribers is defined as the mean of the beginning of quarter and end of quarter Active Subscribers for a quarterly period; and for other periods, represents the mean of the Average Active Subscribers of every quarter within that period.

Gross Profit is defined as total revenue less fulfillment expense, revenue share and rental product depreciation. We depreciate owned apparel assets over three years and owned accessory assets over two years, net of 20% and 30% salvage values, respectively, and recognize the depreciation and remaining cost of items when sold or retired on our statement of operations. Rental product depreciation expense is time-based and reflects all items we own. We use Gross Profit and Gross Profit as a percentage of revenue, or Gross Margin to measure the continued efficiency of our business after the cost of our products and fulfillment costs are included.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release and the accompanying tables contain the non-GAAP financial measures of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, free cash flow, and free cash flow margin. In addition to our results determined in accordance with GAAP, we believe that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin are useful in evaluating our performance and free cash flow and free cash flow margin are useful in evaluating our performance and liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA is a key performance measure used by management to assess our operating performance and the operating leverage of our business prior to capital expenditures. These non-GAAP financial metrics are not meant to be considered as indicators of our financial performance in isolation from or as a substitute for our financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP and should be read only in conjunction with financial information presented on a GAAP basis. There are limitations to the use of the non-GAAP financial metrics presented in this press release. For example, our non-GAAP financial metrics may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate non-GAAP financial metrics differently than we do, limiting the usefulness of those measures for comparative purposes.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net loss, adjusted to exclude interest expense, rental product depreciation, other depreciation and amortization, share-based compensation expense, write-off of liquidated assets, non-recurring adjustments (see below footnotes to reconciliation table), non-ordinary course legal fees, restructuring charges, loss on asset impairment related to restructuring, income tax (benefit) expense, other income and expense, net, and other gains / losses. Adjusted EBITDA margin is defined as Adjusted EBITDA calculated as a percentage of revenue.

We define free cash flow as net cash used in operating activities and net cash used in investing activities on a combined basis. Free cash flow margin is defined as free cash flow as a percentage of revenue.

The reconciliation of presented non-GAAP financial metrics to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is presented below. We encourage reviewing the reconciliation in conjunction with the presentation of the non-GAAP financial metrics for each of the periods presented. In future periods, we may exclude similar items, may incur income and expenses similar to these excluded items, and may include other expenses, costs and non-recurring items. Reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and free cash flow expectations for Q4 2023, fiscal year 2023, and fiscal year 2024 (as applicable) to the closest corresponding GAAP measure is not available without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to the high variability, complexity, and low visibility with respect to the charges excluded from these non-GAAP measures, in particular, share-based compensation expense, and non-recurring expenses, which can have unpredictable fluctuations based on unforeseen activity that is out of our control and/or cannot reasonably be predicted.
