Liberty Interactive Corporation (“Liberty Interactive”) (Nasdaq: QVCA, QVCB, LVNTA, LVNTB) today reported fourth quarter and year end 2014 results. Highlights include(1):

Attributed to QVC Group

  • Grew QVC US revenue by 5% and adjusted OIBDA(2) by 8% in the fourth quarter
    • QVC US operating income increased by 8%
    • QVC.com revenue as a percent of total US revenue increased to 48%, a 254 basis point increase
    • QVC US mobile penetration was 42% of QVC.com orders, a 1,023 basis point increase
  • Achieved positive quarterly adjusted OIBDA at QVC Italy for the first time
  • Grew QVC US revenue by 4% and adjusted OIBDA by 6% in 2014
    • QVC US operating income increased by 4%
  • Returned $3.26 billion in value to QVC Group shareholders in 2014 through share repurchases and the Liberty Ventures share dividend
  • Received a one-time special dividend of $10/share from HSN, Inc. (“HSN”), on February 19, 2015; pre-tax proceeds to QVC Group, net of amounts passed through on Liberty Interactive’s HSN Exchangeable notes, were $146 million

Attributed to Liberty Ventures Group

  • Closed the sale of Provide Commerce (“Provide”) to FTD Companies, Inc. (“FTD”), on December 31, in exchange for $145 million in cash and 10.2 million shares of FTD, representing an approximate 35% ownership interest, resulting in a gain of $75 million
  • Finished 2014 with $2.8 billion of attributed cash and liquid investments

“QVC posted another strong quarter in the US, while its international markets performed better than our dollar denominated results would indicate. Currency weakness was a material headwind in the quarter and we expect that to continue into 2015. QVC Italy reached a milestone in Q4 posting its first quarter of positive adjusted OIBDA. At Liberty Ventures we were active with our Digital Commerce companies, closing the sale of Provide and CommerceHub’s acquisition of Mercent.” stated Greg Maffei, Liberty Interactive President and CEO. “We are also pleased by the performance of the Liberty Ventures and QVC Group stocks post the reattribution we completed in October with both stocks trading above their respective pre-reattribution levels.”

QVC GROUP – Excluding the pre-reattribution impact of the Digital Commerce companies (see reconciling schedule 1): QVC Group’s revenue increased 1% to $2.8 billion in the quarter and 2% to $8.8 billion for the year; adjusted OIBDA increased 3% to $612 million for the quarter and 4% to $1.9 billion for the year; operating income increased 5% to $445 million for the quarter and increased 3% to $1.2 billion for the year; adjusted net income(3) increased 25% to $273 million for the quarter and increased 10% to $739 million for the year; and net income increased 41% to $222 million for the quarter and increased 19% to $520 million for the year.

QVC

QVC’s consolidated revenue increased 1% in the fourth quarter to $2.8 billion and increased 2% to $8.8 billion for the full year. Adjusted OIBDA increased 4% to $620 million in the fourth quarter and 4% to $1.9 billion for the full year. Adjusted OIBDA margin increased 59 basis points in the quarter and 35 basis points for the full year. Operating income increased 4% to $459 million in the quarter and 3% to $1.3 billion for the year.

US Dollar denominated revenue was negatively impacted by exchange rate fluctuations in the fourth quarter and full year. In the quarter, the US Dollar strengthened against the Japanese Yen, Euro and British Pound Sterling 12%, 8% and 2%, respectively. On a constant currency basis, consolidated revenue increased 4% in the quarter vs. 1% in US Dollars. For the year, the US Dollar strengthened 8% against the Yen, weakened 5% against the Pound Sterling and was mostly stable versus the Euro. On a constant currency basis, consolidated revenues increased 3% in the full year vs 2% in US Dollars.

“Our 2014 performance was led by outstanding growth in the US, UK and China and was driven by successful execution of our strategies to create a highly engaging and differentiated shopping experience globally,” said QVC President and CEO Mike George. “As a result, we generated strong consolidated operating leverage and margin expansion in both the fourth quarter and full year. We are well positioned for 2015, entering the new year with the largest television reach, eCommerce and mobile penetration and customer base in our history.”

US revenue increased 5% to $2.0 billion in the fourth quarter and 4% to $6.1 billion for the year. For both periods, the US experienced growth in all categories except electronics. Units sold increased 9%, average selling price per unit (“ASP”) decreased 5% to $61.64 and returns as a percentage of gross product revenue improved 40 basis points in the quarter. For the year, units sold increased 5%, ASP decreased 1% to $59.61, and the return rate was flat. In the quarter, eCommerce revenue increased 11% to $969 million and grew to 48% from 45% of total US revenue. For the year, eCommerce revenue increased 10% to $2.7 billion and grew to 45% from 43% of total US revenue. In the quarter, adjusted OIBDA increased 8% to $474 million, and adjusted OIBDA margin increased 73 basis points primarily due to higher product margins and lower marketing expense, which were partially offset by higher freight, bad debt and personnel expenses. For the year, adjusted OIBDA rose 6% to $1.4 billion, and adjusted OIBDA margin increased 47 basis points, primarily due to higher product margins and net proprietary credit card income, which were partially offset by higher freight, personnel and bad debt expenses.

QVC’s international revenue decreased 7% to $751 million in the fourth quarter and decreased 1% to $2.7 billion for the full year. The revenue declines include the impact of the aforementioned unfavorable exchange rate fluctuations, and on a constant currency basis, international revenues increased slightly in both periods. Adjusted OIBDA decreased 8% to $146 million in the quarter and 2% to $481 million in year. Adjusted OIBDA margin was essentially flat in both periods. The fourth quarter and full year results included $3 and $6 million, respectively, of costs related to the scheduled launch of QVC France in the summer of 2015.

QVC Japan’s revenue in local currency decreased 2% and 4% in the fourth quarter and for the full year, respectively. For both periods, the decline in revenue reflects macro-economic challenges, particularly a local consumption tax increase that became effective in April of 2014. QVC Japan experienced sales declines in local currency in all categories except beauty in the quarter and in all categories except electronics and beauty in the full year. The return rate improved 182 basis points in the quarter and 104 basis points for the year. For both periods, the improvement in the return rate principally reflects lower returns in jewelry, apparel and accessories and a greater mix of beauty. In the quarter, adjusted OIBDA in local currency decreased 8%, and adjusted OIBDA margin decreased 107 basis points primarily due to higher inventory obsolescence and commission expenses and the timing of personnel expenses. For the year, adjusted OIBDA decreased 10%, and adjusted OIBDA margin decreased 132 basis points, primarily due to lower product margins, higher commissions and lack of sales leverage of fixed costs.

QVC Germany’s revenue in local currency declined 1% in the fourth quarter and increased slightly for the full year. In the quarter, sales declined in local currency primarily in the home category and increased mainly in apparel, accessories and jewelry. For the year, sales increased in local currency largely in the home category and declined mainly in apparel and jewelry. The return rate increased 88 basis points in the quarter, and for the year, the return rate improved 177 basis points. The return rate improvement for the year was primarily due to lower return rates in all categories and to a lesser extent a positive mix shift from apparel and jewelry to home. For both periods, adjusted OIBDA in local currency and adjusted OIBDA margin were relatively stable due to cost management.

QVC UK’s revenue increased 6% in local currency in both the fourth quarter and the full year. In the quarter, QVC UK experienced sales growth primarily in the jewelry and beauty categories. For the year, the business experienced gains mainly in beauty, home and jewelry. The return rate improved 105 basis points in the quarter, primarily due to variance from prior-period estimates based on actual experience. For the year, the return rate improved 78 basis points. In the quarter, adjusted OIBDA in local currency increased 12% and adjusted OIBDA margin increased 77 basis points. For the year, adjusted OIBDA in local currency increased 16% and adjusted OIBDA margin increased 135 basis points. For both periods, the margin improvement was largely due to leverage of operating costs due to sales growth.

QVC Italy’s revenue increased 8% and 9% in local currency in the fourth quarter and the full year, respectively. For both periods, the business experienced gains in all categories except electronics. The return rate improved 76 basis points in the quarter and 38 basis points for the year. QVC Italy generated its first quarterly positive adjusted OIBDA of EUR0.6 million in the quarter and improved adjusted OIBDA margin 776 basis points. For the year, QVC Italy’s adjusted OIBDA deficit in local currency improved 70%, and adjusted OIBDA margin improved by 813 basis points. For both periods, the margin improvement mainly reflects lower freight, commission, customer service and fixed costs as a percent of revenue.

CNR Home Shopping Co., Ltd. (“CNRS”), QVC’s joint venture in China, delivered a 27% and 24% increase in revenue in local currency in the fourth quarter and for the full year, respectively. CNRS’ adjusted OIBDA deficit in local currency increased 25% and 23% in the quarter and for the year, respectively, due to continued investment in TV distribution expansion. This joint venture is being accounted for as an equity method investment, and as a result, QVC reported a $3 million and $8 million reduction in net income for the quarter and year, respectively.

QVC’s outstanding debt was $4.6 billion at December 31, 2014, an increase of $0.8 billion from the prior year.

Share Repurchases

From November 1, 2014 through January 31, 2015, Liberty Interactive repurchased approximately 3.8 million Series A QVC Group shares (Nasdaq: QVCA) at an average cost per share of $28.36 for total cash consideration of $107 million. Since the creation of the QVC Group stock (including its predecessor, Liberty Interactive Group) in May 2006, Liberty Interactive has repurchased shares for aggregate cash consideration of $5.4 billion, representing approximately 36.6% of the shares outstanding at the time of creation of the QVC Group stock. All repurchases up to August 9, 2012, the date on which the QVC Group stock was recapitalized to create the Liberty Ventures Group stock, were comprised of shares of the combined stocks. The remaining repurchase authorization as of February 1, 2015 for QVC Group stock was approximately $677 million, which includes $162 million remaining under the authorization put in place in connection with the spin-off of Liberty TripAdvisor Holdings, Inc. and which may be used to repurchase either QVC Group stock or Liberty Ventures Group stock (the “Liberty TripAdvisor spin-off authorization”). Liberty Ventures has been compensated dollar-for-dollar for all repurchases made under the Liberty TripAdvisor spin-off authorization.

QVC Group consists of Liberty Interactive’s subsidiary, QVC, Inc., and Liberty Interactive’s interest in HSN.

LIBERTY VENTURES GROUP – On October 3, 2014, Liberty Interactive reattributed from the QVC Group (formerly known as the Liberty Interactive Group prior to the reattribution) to the Liberty Ventures Group its Digital Commerce companies, which were valued at $1.5 billion, and approximately $1 billion in cash. In connection with the reattribution, each holder of QVC Group common stock received 0.14217 of a share of the corresponding series of Liberty Ventures Group common stock for each share of QVC Group common stock held as of the record date, with cash paid in lieu of fractional shares. Additionally, on December 31, 2014, FTD acquired Provide from Liberty Interactive in return for approximately 10.2 million shares of FTD common stock representing approximately 35% of the combined company and approximately $145 million in cash. Subsequent to the transaction, Liberty Interactive accounts for FTD as an equity-method affiliate based on our ownership level and board representation. The results of the Digital Commerce companies continue to be reflected in the QVC Group for periods prior to the reattribution (which for accounting purposes is, September 30, 2014 in our attributed financial statements filed with the SEC). The results of the Digital Commerce companies are reflected in the Liberty Ventures Group prospectively from September 30, 2014. Our continuing consolidated Digital Commerce companies include Backcountry.com, Bodybuilding.com, CommerceHub, Evite and The Right Start and exclude Provide.

Revenue for the continuing consolidated Digital Commerce companies increased 7% to $306 million in the quarter and 9% to $1.0 billion for the year. For the year, the increase in revenue was due to increases at each of our subsidiaries Backcountry ($37 million), Bodybuilding ($34 million) and CommerceHub ($15 million). Backcountry revenue increased as a result of increases in order volume and average order value. The increase in Bodybuilding revenue was primarily due to increased order volume on flat average order values. CommerceHub revenue growth was primarily attributed to growth in active customers (vendors and suppliers) who pay a license and setup fee and an increase in the number of aggregate transactions processed for which CommerceHub earns a per transaction fee.

Adjusted OIBDA for the continuing Digital Commerce companies increased 17% to $41 million in the quarter and 22% to $90 million for the year. For the year, the growth in Adjusted OIBDA was primarily due to the increases in revenue discussed above and was driven by increases at Backcountry ($9 million), Bodybuilding ($2 million) and CommerceHub ($8 million). Adjusted OIBDA represented 8.8% of revenue in 2014, as compared to 7.8% of revenue in 2013. Most of our subsidiaries experienced flat to slightly increased Adjusted OIBDA as a percentage of sales for the year ended December 31, 2014, which was primarily the result of improved product margins and cost containment efforts offset by increased marketing and promotional spend and lower advertising revenue due to unfavorable pricing and a shift to mobile applications.

Operating income for the continuing Digital Commerce companies increased 286% to $13 million in the quarter and decreased 30% to $7 million for the year.

Share Repurchases

There were no repurchases of Liberty Ventures Group common stock (Nasdaq: LVNTA) from November 1, 2014 through January 31, 2015. The total remaining repurchase authorization for Liberty Ventures Group stock is approximately $812 million, which includes $162 million remaining under the Liberty TripAdvisor spin-off authorization.

The businesses and assets attributed to the Liberty Ventures Group are all of Liberty’s businesses and assets other than those attributed to the QVC Group, including its interests in Expedia, Interval and FTD, its subsidiaries Backcountry.com, Bodybuilding.com, CommerceHub, The Right Start and Evite, and minority interests in Time Warner, Time Warner Cable and Lending Tree.

Total cash and liquid investments attributed to the QVC Group decreased by approximately $306 million during the fourth quarter, primarily driven by the reattribution of $1 billion to Liberty Ventures Group, stock repurchases and capital expenditures. These outflows were partially offset by cash flows from operations and borrowings on the QVC bank credit facility in excess of repayments. Total debt attributed to the QVC Group increased by $394 million, primarily due to borrowings on the QVC bank credit facility, partially offset by debt at the Digital Commerce companies which was reattributed to Ventures during the fourth quarter.

Total cash and liquid investments attributed to the Liberty Ventures Group increased $1.2 billion, primarily due to cash received as part of the reattribution and the closing of the sale of Provide to FTD.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

This press release includes a presentation of adjusted OIBDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, for Liberty Interactive, QVC (and certain of its subsidiaries), and the Digital Commerce companies together with a reconciliation to that entity or such businesses’ operating income, as determined under GAAP. Liberty Interactive defines adjusted OIBDA as revenue less cost of sales, operating expenses, and selling, general and administrative expenses, excluding all stock based compensation, and excludes from that definition depreciation and amortization and restructuring and impairment charges that are included in the measurement of operating income pursuant to GAAP. Further, this press release includes adjusted OIBDA margin which is also a non-GAAP financial measure. Liberty Interactive defines adjusted OIBDA margin as adjusted OIBDA divided by revenue.

Liberty Interactive believes adjusted OIBDA is an important indicator of the operational strength and performance of its businesses, including each business’ ability to service debt and fund capital expenditures. In addition, this measure allows management to view operating results and perform analytical comparisons and benchmarking between businesses and identify strategies to improve performance. Because adjusted OIBDA is used as a measure of operating performance, Liberty Interactive views operating income as the most directly comparable GAAP measure. Adjusted OIBDA is not meant to replace or supersede operating income or any other GAAP measure, but rather to supplement such GAAP measures in order to present investors with the same information that Liberty Interactive’s management considers in assessing the results of operations and performance of its assets. Please see the attached schedules for applicable reconciliations.

In addition, this presentation includes references to adjusted net income, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, for QVC Group. Liberty Interactive defines adjusted net income as net income, excluding the impact of purchase accounting amortization (net of deferred tax benefit) and net income (loss) generated by the Digital Commerce companies.

Liberty Interactive believes adjusted net income is an important indicator of financial performance, in particular for QVC Group, due to the impact of purchase accounting amortization and the reattribution of the Digital Commerce companies. Because adjusted net income is used as a measure of overall financial performance, Liberty Interactive views net income as the most directly comparable GAAP measure. Adjusted net income is not meant to replace or supersede net income or any other GAAP measure, but rather to supplement such GAAP measures in order to present investors with a valuable supplemental metric of financial performance. Please see the attached schedules for a reconciliation of adjusted net income to net income (loss) calculated in accordance with GAAP for QVC Group (Schedule 4).

SCHEDULE 1

The following table provides a reconciliation of QVC Group’s adjusted OIBDA to its operating income calculated in accordance with GAAP for the three months ended December 31, 2013, March 31, 2014, June 30, 2014, September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2014, respectively and years ended December 31, 2013 and 2014.
