Second Quarter Revenue Increased by 28% YoY to $76.7 Million
Strengthened Cash Position to $105 Million At Quarter End1
Reiterates Full Year 2022 Revenue Outlook; On Track to Achieve Cost Savings Initiatives

MIAMI, August 15, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bird Global, Inc. ("Bird" or the "Company") (NYSE:BRDS), a leader in environmentally friendly electric transportation, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.

Travis VanderZanden, Founder and CEO of Bird, said, "During the second quarter, we took significant actions on our path to achieve profitability and to align our organization to prioritize balanced growth with expense and capital discipline. Through the cost savings initiatives we implemented, we are on track to deliver positive Adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of 2022 and fiscal 2023. Our second quarter ending cash and cash equivalents, including restricted and unrestricted, improved meaningfully to $105 million."

Mr. VanderZanden continued, "As we look ahead, we continue to see significant opportunities to profitably scale our Sharing business, which has delivered record revenue performance year-to-date despite the challenging macro environment. We also believe, along with measured geographic expansion, that we have an opportunity to better optimize our pricing and deployment strategy as we continue to operate in a dynamic and rapidly shifting demand environment. Through our innovative operating model and best-in-class technology platform, we are confident in our strategy to capitalize on the opportunities ahead and reach more consumers and cities, demonstrating to our riders the ease with which electric vehicles can solve traditional transportation pain points."

Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2022 Financial Results

  • Revenue was $76.7 million, representing an increase of 28% compared to $60.0 million in the same period in 2021 (the "prior year period").

  • Within the core Sharing business, Sharing gross margin as a percentage of Sharing revenue was 27% compared to 28% in the prior year period. Consolidated gross margin as a percentage of revenue was (17)% compared to 26% in the prior year period as a consequence of our previously announced restructuring activities including a shift in focus away from Product Sales.

  • Ride Profit (before Vehicle Depreciation) was $38.4 million, representing an increase of 37% compared to $27.9 million in the prior year period. Ride Profit Margin (before Vehicle Depreciation) was 53% compared to 49% in the prior year period.

  • Total operating expenses were $317.9 million, which include $247.6 million of impairments and write-offs driven by the impact of the macro environment on the fair market value of long lived assets, including goodwill, as well as our shift in focus away from Product Sales, and $43.7 million of non-cash stock-based compensation expense; Adjusted Operating Expenses, which exclude non-cash stock-based compensation expense as well as certain non-cash, non-recurring or non-core expenses, were $56.0 million, representing an increase of 43% year-over-year.

  • Net loss was $310.4 million compared to a net loss of $43.7 million in the prior year period. The year-over-year decline in net loss is primarily driven by impairments and write-offs on the fair market value of long lived assets.

  • Adjusted EBITDA loss was $19.1 million compared to a loss of $11.5 million in the prior year period.

1 Cash position is defined as total cash and cash equivalents, including $57 million of unrestricted cash and cash equivalents, and $48 million of restricted cash and cash equivalents.

  • Net loss was $300.1 million compared to a net loss of $119.9 million in the prior year period. The year-over-year decline in net loss is primarily driven by impairments and write-offs on the fair market value of long lived assets.

  • Adjusted EBITDA loss was $56.0 million compared to a loss of $41.0 million in the prior year period.

Outlook

The Company continues to expect:

  • Revenue between $275 million to $325 million for fiscal year 2022;

  • Annual run-rate cost savings of at least $80 million for fiscal year 2022, resulting in an annual Adjusted Operating Expense run-rate of no more than $160 million; and

  • Positive Adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of fiscal year 2022 and full fiscal year 2023.

Yibo Ling, CFO of Bird, commented, "Our second quarter financial results reflect solid revenue growth along with record Sharing gross profit as the unit economics of our core Sharing business continued to benefit from efficiencies driven by our Fleet Manager operating model. The efficiencies we continue to drive through our operating model combined with our realigned fixed cost structure position us well to deliver on our path to profitability. In addition, we have continued to focus on strengthening our balance sheet through disciplined capital deployment. We ended the second quarter with an increase in our restricted and unrestricted cash and cash equivalents balance compared to the first quarter, and believe we are well equipped with sufficient flexible financing to execute on our objectives going forward."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Key Metrics

This press release contains "Ride Profit," "Ride Profit Margin," "Adjusted Operating Expenses," and "Adjusted EBITDA," which are measures that are not prepared and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"). The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. Ride Profit reflects the profit generated from rides in our Sharing business after accounting for direct ride expenses, which primarily consist of payments to Fleet Managers. Other ride costs include payment processing fees, network infrastructure, and city permit fees. We calculate Ride Profit (i) before vehicle depreciation to illustrate the cash return and (ii) after vehicle depreciation to illustrate the impact of the evolution of our vehicles. Ride Profit Margin is Ride Profit divided by the revenue we generate from our Sharing business. We use Ride Profit Margin for financial and operational decision-making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. We believe that Ride Profit and Ride Profit Margin are useful indicators of the economics of our Sharing business, as they exclude indirect unallocated expenses such as research and development, selling and marketing, and general and administrative expenses. Adjusted Operating Expenses is a supplemental measure of operating expenses used to provide investors with additional information about the Company's business performance. We believe Adjusted Operating Expenses is useful in evaluating the operational costs of our business as it excludes impact from items that are non-cash in nature, non-recurring, or not related to our core business operations. We calculate Adjusted Operating Expenses as total operating expenses, adjusted to exclude (i) depreciation and amortization associated with operating expenses, (ii) stock-based compensation expense, (iii) legal settlements and reserves, (iv) impairment of assets, and (v) other non-recurring, non-cash, or non-core items. Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental measure of operating performance used to inform management decisions for the business. We believe Adjusted EBITDA is useful in evaluating our performance on a relative basis to other comparable businesses as it excludes impact from items that are non-cash in nature, non-recurring, or not related to our core business operations. We calculate Adjusted EBITDA as net profit or loss, adjusted to exclude (i) interest expense (income), net, (ii) provision for (benefit from) income taxes, (iii) depreciation and amortization, (iv) vehicle count adjustments, (v) stock-based compensation expense, (vi) other income (expense), net, (vii) legal settlements and reserves, (viii) impairment of product sales inventory, (ix) impairment of assets, and (x) other non-recurring, non-cash, or non-core items. There are a number of limitations related to the use of non-GAAP financial measures. In light of these limitations, we provide specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from Ride Profit, Ride Profit Margin, Adjusted Operating Expenses and Adjusted EBITDA. For reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, see the appendix to this press release.

This press release also contains certain key business metrics which are used to evaluate our business, measure our performance, identify trends affecting our business, formulate business plans, and make strategic decisions. Gross Transaction Value ("GTV") reflects the total dollar value, excluding any applicable taxes, of Rides in our Sharing business and vehicle sales to retail customers and Bird Platform partners, in each case without any adjustment for retail discounts or refunds. In order to calculate GTV, we add back contra revenues from both Sharing and Product Sales and adjustments to the Bird Platform revenue we recognize. GTV is a key indicator of the scale of our business and ultimately drives revenue. We calculate Rides as the total number of trips completed by customers of our Sharing business. Rides are seasonal to a certain degree. Deployed Vehicles reflects the number of vehicles available to riders through our Sharing business. We calculate Deployed Vehicles on a pro-rata basis over a 24-hour period, wherein two vehicles deployed for a combined period of 24 hours equate to one Deployed Vehicle. Rides per Deployed Vehicle per Day ("RpD") reflects the rate at which our shared vehicles are utilized by riders. We calculate RpD as the total number of Rides divided by total Deployed Vehicles in our Sharing business each calendar day.
