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 in Q3 2012 and 2011 was $255.4 million and $239.7 million, respectively, a 7% increase. The growth in net revenue was primarily due to increases in unique visitors and average order size which more than offset fewer customer orders due to lower conversion rates compared to last year.

Gross profit — Gross profit in Q3 2012 and 2011 was $46.5 million and $38.4 million, respectively, a 21% increase, representing 18.2% and 16.0% of total net revenue for those respective periods. The increase in gross profit was primarily due to a shift in product sales mix and pricing initiatives.

Contribution (a non-GAAP financial measure) and contribution margin (a non-GAAP financial measure) — Contribution in Q3 2012 and 2011 was $31.6 million and $24.6 million, respectively, a 29% increase. Contribution margin increased by 220 basis points to 12.4% from 10.2% for the 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. When viewed with our GAAP gross profit less sales and marketing expenses, 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 (loss) and net income (loss). 

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 $14.9 million and $13.8 million in Q3 2012 and 2011, respectively, an 8% increase, and representing 5.8% of total net revenue for both periods.

Technology expenses — Technology expenses totaled $16.1 million and $17.2 million in Q3 2012 and 2011, respectively, a 6% decrease, and representing 6.3% and 7.2% of total net revenue for those periods. The $1.1 million decrease was primarily due to lower compensation related costs from reduced staffing.

General and administrative ("G&A") expenses — G&A expenses totaled $13.8 million and $15.3 million in Q3 2012 and 2011, respectively, a 10% decrease, and representing 5.4% and 6.4% of total net revenue for those periods. The $1.5 million decrease is largely due to lower legal fees.

Operating income/(loss) — Operating income totaled $1.8 million and $(7.9) million in Q3 2012 and 2011, respectively, a $9.7 million increase.   

Restructuring — Restructuring was a credit of $(45,000) and $0 in Q3 2012 and 2011, respectively. The restructuring credit of $(45,000) is related to subleasing our IT development office in Provo.

Interest income — Interest income totaled $30,000 and $23,000 in Q3 2012 and 2011, respectively.

Interest expense — Interest expense totaled $194,000 and $662,000 in Q3 2012 and 2011, respectively, a decrease of $468,000 or 71%. The decrease in interest expense is primarily a result of extinguishments of US Bank finance obligations and Senior Notes during 2011.

Other income, net — Other income, net totaled $1.2 million and $553,000 in Q3 2012 and 2011, respectively. The increase in other income, net is primarily due to an increase in Club O Rewards breakage.

Income taxes — Income tax expense totaled $131,000 and a benefit of $(240,000) in Q3 2012 and 2011, respectively, an increase of $371,000.  

Net income/(loss) — Net income totaled $2.7 million and a loss of $(7.8 million) for Q3 2012 and 2011, respectively, an increase of $10.5 million. Earnings per share was $0.11 on a fully diluted basis in Q3 2012, compared to $(0.33) for Q3 2011.

Free cash flow (a non-GAAP financial measure) — Free cash flow totaled $15.7 million and $24.2 million for the twelve months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. The $8.5 million decrease was due to a $3.1 million decrease in operating cash flows and a $5.4 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.
