“Funko once again delivered very strong results in the second quarter,” said Brian Mariotti, Funko’s CEO. “We believe these results and our continued opportunities for growth demonstrate that the world is increasingly viewing pop culture through the lens of Funko.

“Funko has become a solid entertainment content platform, and our brand continues to grow in awareness and popularity around the world. This unique position enables us to develop new and increasingly profitable sources of revenue that we expect will propel continued growth for many years to come.

“Our strong results in the first half of 2019 have allowed us to increase our guidance for the full year. More importantly, the growing range of opportunities for revenue growth, international expansion and entry into new categories make us confident that our best days lie ahead, and that our fans, partners, employees and shareholders can look forward to the future.”

Second Quarter 2019 Financial Results

Net sales increased 38% to $191.2 million in the second quarter of 2019 from $138.7 million in the second quarter of 2018. The growth was driven primarily by an increase in the number of active properties and strong sales demand across all of our geographic markets and product categories.

In the second quarter of 2019, the number of active properties increased 16% to 592 from 510 in the second quarter of 2018 and net sales per active property increased 19%. On a geographical basis, net sales in the United States increased 26% to $122.7 million and net sales internationally increased 65% to $68.5 million with strong growth across all regions. On a product category basis, net sales of figures increased 39% to $159.7 million and net sales of other products increased 30% to $31.5 million versus the second quarter of 2018, driven primarily by continued growth of our Loungefly and other softline products.

The tables below show the breakdown of net sales on a geographical and product category basis (in thousands):

Three Months Ended Period Over June 30, Period Change -------------------- ---------------- 2019 2018 Dollar Percent age --------- --------- -------- ------ Net sales by geography: United States $ 122,673 $ 97,108 $ 25,565 26.3 % International 68,526 41,615 26,911 64.7 % Total net sales $ 191,199 $ 138,723 $ 52,476 37.8 % - ------- - ------- - ------ Three Months Ended Period Over June 30, Period Change -------------------- ---------------- 2019 2018 Dollar Percent age --------- --------- -------- ------ Net sales by product: Figures $ 159,667 $ 114,499 $ 45,168 39.4 % Other 31,532 24,224 7,308 30.2 % Total net sales $ 191,199 $ 138,723 $ 52,476 37.8 % - ------- - ------- - ------

Gross margin2 in the second quarter of 2019 decreased 90 basis points to 37.2% compared to 38.1% in the second quarter of 2018. The decrease in gross margin2 in the second quarter of 2019 compared to the second quarter of 2018 was driven primarily by higher reserves on inventory, partially offset by improved product cost margins and lower license and royalty costs as a percentage of net sales.

SG&A expenses increased 26% to $43.6 million in the second quarter of 2019 from $34.5 million in the second quarter of 2018, primarily related to an increase of $7.1 million in personnel and related costs (including salary and related taxes/benefits, commissions and stock compensation expense), an increase of $1.1 million in professional and consulting costs and an increase of $1.0 million in rent and related facilities costs. Both of these costs increased as a result of the continued growth of the business. SG&A expenses declined 210 basis points as a percentage of sales as the Company gained operating leverage in the second quarter of 2019 compared to the second quarter of 2018.

Net income for the second quarter of 2019 increased to $11.4 million from $0.3 million in the second quarter of 2018, and Adjusted Net Income3 increased $9.7 million to $12.9 million from $3.2 million in the second quarter of 2018. In addition to the reduction in SG&A as a percentage of sales, factors that led to net income and Adjusted Net Income3 growing faster than sales in the second quarter of 2019 compared to the second quarter of 2018 include lower depreciation and amortization expense as a percentage of sales, a reduction in interest expense, net and the reduced impact of foreign currency gains and losses relating to transactions denominated in currencies other than the US dollar compared to the second quarter of 2018.

Adjusted EBITDA3 in the second quarter of 2019 rose 61% to $31.4 million, or 16.4% of net sales, from $19.5 million, or 14.0% of net sales, in the second quarter of 2018. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA3 as a percentage of net sales in the second quarter of 2019 compared to the second quarter of 2018 resulted from lower SG&A as a percentage of sales.

2019 Outlook

The Company is raising its outlook for the full year 2019. The Company now expects net sales to be in a range of $840 million to $850 million. Adjusted EBITDA3 is expected to be in a range of $140 million to $145 million. Adjusted Earnings per Diluted Share3 is expected to be in a range of $1.15 per share to $1.22 per share and is based on estimated adjusted average diluted shares outstanding of 53.5 million for the full year 2019.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS are non-GAAP measures. A table at the end of this release reconciles Funko’s outlook for the full year 2019 Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Earnings per Diluted Share guidance to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures.

Funko, Inc. and SubsidiariesNon-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings per Diluted Share, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are supplemental measures of our performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, U.S. GAAP. Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings per Diluted Share, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measurements of our financial performance under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss), earnings per share or any other performance measure derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP. We define Adjusted Net Income as net income attributable to Funko, Inc. adjusted for the reallocation of income attributable to non-controlling interests from the assumed exchange of all outstanding common units and options in FAH, LLC for newly issued-shares of Class A common stock of Funko, Inc. and further adjusted for the impact of certain non-cash charges and other items that we do not consider in our evaluation of ongoing operating performance. These items include, among other things, reallocation of net income attributable to non-controlling interests, non-cash charges related to equity-based compensation programs, acquisition transaction costs and other expenses, foreign currency transaction gains and losses and other unusual or one-time items, and the income tax expense (benefit) effect of these adjustments. We define Adjusted Earnings per Diluted Share as Adjusted Net Income divided by the weighted-average shares of Class A common stock outstanding, assuming (1) the full exchange of all outstanding common units and options in FAH, LLC for newly issued-shares of Class A common stock of Funko, Inc. and (2) the dilutive effect of stock options and unvested common units, if any. We define EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest expense, net, income tax expense (benefit), depreciation and amortization. We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA further adjusted for non-cash charges related to equity-based compensation programs, acquisition transaction costs and other expenses, foreign currency transaction gains and losses and other unusual or one-time items. We caution investors that amounts presented in accordance with our definitions Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings per Diluted Share, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similar measures disclosed by our competitors, because not all companies and analysts calculate these measures in the same manner. We present Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings per Diluted Share, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA because we consider them to be important supplemental measures of our performance and believe they are frequently used by securities analysts, investors, and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry. Management believes that investors’ understanding of our performance is enhanced by including these non-GAAP financial measures as a reasonable basis for comparing our ongoing results of operations. Management uses Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings per Diluted Share, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as a measurement of operating performance because they assist us in comparing the operating performance of our business on a consistent basis, as they remove the impact of items not directly resulting from our core operations; for planning purposes, including the preparation of our internal annual operating budget and financial projections; as a consideration to assess incentive compensation for our employees; to evaluate the performance and effectiveness of our operational strategies; and to evaluate our capacity to expand our business.

By providing these non-GAAP financial measures, together with reconciliations, we believe we are enhancing investors’ understanding of our business and our results of operations, as well as assisting investors in evaluating how well we are executing our strategic initiatives. In addition, our senior secured credit facilities use Adjusted EBITDA to measure our compliance with covenants such as senior leverage ratio. Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings per Diluted Share, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation, or as an alternative to, or a substitute for net income (loss) or other financial statement data presented in this press release as indicators of financial performance. Some of the limitations are:

-- such measures do not reflect our cash expenditures, or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;

-- such measures do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;

-- such measures do not reflect the interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on our debt;

-- although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future and such measures do not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements; and

-- other companies in our industry may calculate such measures differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.

Due to these limitations, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings per Diluted Share, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as measures of discretionary cash available to us to invest in the growth of our business. We compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our GAAP results and using these non-GAAP measures only supplementally. As noted in the table below, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings per Diluted Share and Adjusted EBITDA include adjustments for non-cash charges related to equity-based compensation programs, acquisition transaction costs and other expenses, foreign currency transaction gains and losses, and other unusual or one-time items. It is reasonable to expect that these items will occur in future periods. However, we believe these adjustments are appropriate because the amounts recognized can vary significantly from period to period, do not directly relate to the ongoing operations of our business and complicate comparisons of our internal operating results and operating results of other companies over time. Each of the normal recurring adjustments and other adjustments described herein and in the reconciliation table below help management with a measure of our core operating performance over time by removing items that are not related to day-to-day operations.

In addition, this press release refers to the non-GAAP financial measure Net Debt, which consists of total debt as reported on the condensed consolidated balance sheet less cash and cash equivalents. Management believes that Net Debt provides useful information to investors because it shows the Company’s outstanding debt obligations that could not be satisfied by its cash and cash equivalents on hand.

The following tables reconcile Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings per Diluted Share, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial performance measure:

Guidance Reconciliation of Net Income to EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings per Diluted Share

(1 ) Represents non-cash charges related to equity-based compensation programs, which vary from period to period depending on timing of awards. (2 ) Represents legal, accounting, and other related costs incurred in connection with potential and completed acquisitions and other transactions. (3 ) Represents both unrealized and realized foreign currency gains and losses on transactions other than in U.S. dollars. (4 ) Represents the income tax expense effect of the above adjustments. This adjustment uses an effective tax rate of 25% for the year ending December 31, 2019.

Note: The Company is not able to provide the expected impact of unrealized and realized foreign currency gains and losses on transactions without unreasonable efforts because the calculation for that change is primarily driven by changes in foreign currency exchange rates, principally British pounds and euros. Additionally, the impacts are also driven by fluctuations in product sales and operating expenses in each of those local currencies, which can fluctuate month to month. Therefore, the Company’s Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings per Diluted Share for the year ending December 31, 2019, including the above adjustments, may differ materially from that forecasted in the table above.
