Key financial and operating metrics:

Investors should review our financial statements and publicly-filed reports in their entirety and not rely on any single financial measure.

Net revenue — Total net revenue for Q1 2013 and 2012 was $312.0 million and $262.4 million, respectively, a 19% increase. The growth in net revenue was primarily due to a 21% increase in average order size, partially offset by a small decrease in the number of customer orders.

Gross profit — Gross profit for Q1 2013 and 2012 was $58.9 million and $47.5 million, respectively, a 24% increase, representing 18.9% and 18.1% of total net revenue for those respective periods. The increase in gross profit was primarily due to higher revenue and a shift in product sales mix into higher margin home and garden products, and lower warehousing costs, partially offset by higher freight costs.

Contribution (a non-GAAP financial measure) and contribution margin (a non-GAAP financial measure) — Contribution for Q1 2013 and 2012 was $40.2 million and $33.0 million, respectively, a 22% increase. Contribution margin was 12.9% and 12.6% for those same periods. 

Contribution (a non-GAAP financial measure) (which we reconcile to "gross profit" in our statement of operations) consists of gross profit less sales and marketing expense and reflects an additional way of viewing our results. Contribution margin is contribution as a percentage of total net revenue. We believe contribution and contribution margin provides management and users of the financial statements information about our ability to cover our operating costs, such as technology and general and administrative expenses. Contribution and contribution margin are used in addition to and in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP and should not be relied upon to the exclusion of GAAP financial measures. The material limitation associated with the use of contribution is that it is an incomplete measure of profitability as it does not include all operating expenses or non-operating income and expenses. Management compensates for these limitations when using this measure by looking at other GAAP measures, such as operating income and net income. 

For further details on contribution and contribution margin, see the calculation of these non-GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of contribution to gross profit below (in thousands):

Sales and marketing expenses — Sales and marketing expenses totaled $18.7 million and $14.5 million for Q1 2013 and 2012, respectively, a 29% increase, and representing 6.0% and 5.5% of total net revenue for those respective periods. The increase was primarily due to increased spending in the sponsored search marketing channel due to a higher proportion of our revenue coming through that channel.

Technology expenses — Technology expenses totaled $18.2 million and $15.6 million for Q1 2013 and 2012, respectively, a 16% increase, and representing 5.8% and 6.0% of total net revenue for those respective periods. The $2.6 million increase is primarily due to an increase in staff related costs.

General and administrative ("G&A") expenses — G&A expenses totaled $15.1 million and $14.8 million for Q1 2013 and 2012, respectively, a 2% increase, and representing 4.8% and 5.6% of total net revenue for those respective periods.    

Restructuring — Restructuring was a credit of $(432,000) and a charge of $98,000 for Q1 2013 and Q1 2012, respectively. The credit in Q1 2013 is related to reoccupying some of our IT data center space that had previously been restructured. The $98,000 charge in Q1 2012 was primarily due to ceasing the use of our office space in Provo, Utah.

Operating income — Operating income was $7.4 million and $2.5 million for Q1 2013 and 2012, respectively, a $4.9 million increase. 

Interest income — Interest income was $34,000 and $29,000 for Q1 2013 and 2012, respectively.

Interest expense — Interest expense totaled $51,000 and $208,000 for Q1 2013 and 2012, respectively. The decrease is primarily due to our repayment of the $17.0 million in advances under the U.S. Bank Financing Agreement in November 2012.

Other income, net — Other income, net totaled $345,000 and $432,000 for Q1 2013 and 2012, respectively.

Income taxes — Income tax expense totaled $46,000 and $9,000 for Q1 2013 and 2012, respectively.  

Net income — Net income was $7.7 million and $2.7 million for Q1 2013 and 2012, respectively, an increase of $5.0 million. Q1 2013 diluted earnings per share were $0.32, compared to $0.12 for Q1 2012.

Free cash flow (a non-GAAP financial measure) — Free cash flow totaled $32.3 million and $3.5 million for the twelve months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively. The $28.8 million increase was due to a $36.1 million increase in operating cash flows, partially offset by a $7.2 million increase in capital expenditures.

Free cash flow reflects an additional way of viewing our cash flows and liquidity that, when viewed with our GAAP results, provides a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our cash flows and liquidity. Free cash flow, which we reconcile to "net cash provided by (used in) operating activities," is cash flow from operations reduced by "expenditures for fixed assets, including internal-use software and website development." We believe that cash flows from operating activities is an important measure, since it includes both the cash impact of the continuing operations of the business and changes in the balance sheet that impact cash. However, we believe free cash flow is a useful measure to evaluate our business since purchases of fixed assets are a necessary component of ongoing operations and free cash flow measures the amount of cash we have available for mandatory debt service and financing obligations, changes in our capital structure, and future investments, after we have paid our operating expenses. Therefore, we believe it is important to view free cash flow as a complement to our entire consolidated statements of cash flows. 

Our calculation of free cash flow is set forth below (in thousands):
