(BUSINESS WIRE) -- MYT Netherlands Parent B.V. (NYSE: MYTE) (“Mytheresa” or the “Company”), the parent company of Mytheresa Group GmbH, today announced financial results for its third quarter of fiscal year 2022 ended March 31, 2022. The luxury multi-brand digital platform delivered another quarter of solid top-line growth with continued profitability.
Michael Kliger, Chief Executive Officer of Mytheresa, said, “Our business has shown excellent strength despite the impact of many external challenges in the third quarter. I am pleased, that Mytheresa delivered very solid results and continued adjusted EBITDA profitability. We grew our GMV double-digit, we expanded our customer base healthily, our top customer base has become even stronger and all this against an extraordinary growth of 47% in last year’s quarter. We continued to see strong growth in the United States, where we again had the highest growth for Mytheresa, with outsized growth in warmer weather states like Florida and Texas.”
Kliger continued, “While it is impossible to predict the macro-economic environment for the coming months, the luxury sector has consistently proven to be very resilient. Furthermore, the shift to online in luxury shopping is continuing and driving growth. The first weeks of the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2022 fuel our confidence that Mytheresa remains the partner of choice for luxury designer brands to engage with our high-value multi-brand customers. We remain confident in the short and longer-term potential for profitable growth of our business.”
FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS FOR THE THIRD QUARTER ENDED MARCH 31, 2022

Net sales increase of €4.7 million, or 2.9% year-over-year to €169.5 million slower than GMV due to planned switches of brands to the Curated Platform Model (CPM) and the subsequent effect of recording the platform fee as Net Sales

ABOUT NON-IFRS FINANCIAL MEASURES AND OPERATING METRICS
We review a number of operating and financial metrics, including the following business and non-IFRS metrics, to evaluate our business, measure our performance, identify trends affecting our business, formulate business plans and make strategic decisions. We present Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Operating Income and Adjusted Net Income because they are frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in our industry. Further, we believe these measures are helpful in highlighting trends in our operating results, because they exclude the impact of items that are outside the control of management or not reflective of our ongoing operations and performance. Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Operating Income, and Adjusted Net Income have limitations, because they exclude certain types of expenses. We use Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Operating Income, and Adjusted Net Income as supplemental information only. You are encouraged to evaluate each adjustment and the reasons we consider it appropriate for supplemental analysis.
Our non-IFRS financial measures include:
Adjusted EBITDA is a non-IFRS financial measure that we calculate as net income before finance expense (net), taxes, and depreciation and amortization, adjusted to exclude IPO preparation and transaction costs, other transaction-related costs and IPO-related share-based compensation expenses.
Adjusted Operating Income is a non-IFRS financial measure that we calculate as operating income, adjusted to exclude IPO preparation and transaction costs, other transaction-related costs and IPO-related share-based compensation expenses.
Adjusted Net Income is a non-IFRS financial measure that we calculate as net income, adjusted to exclude finance expenses on our Shareholder Loans, IPO preparation and transaction costs, other transaction-related costs, IPO-related share-based compensation expenses and related income tax effects.
We are not able to forecast net income (loss) on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable efforts due to the high variability and difficulty in predicting certain items that affect net income (loss), including, but not limited to, Income taxes and Interest expense and, as a result, are unable to provide a reconciliation to forecasted Adjusted EBITDA.
Gross Merchandise Value (GMV) is an operative measure and means the total Euro value of orders processed. GMV is inclusive of merchandise value, shipping and duty. It is net of returns, value added taxes and cancellations. GMV does not represent revenue earned by us. We use GMV as an indicator for the usage of our platform that is not influenced by the mix of direct sales and commission sales. The indicators we use to monitor usage of our platform include, among others, active customers, total orders shipped and GMV.
Mytheresa is one of the leading global luxury fashion e-commerce platforms shipping to over 130 countries. Founded as a boutique in 1987, Mytheresa launched online in 2006 and offers ready-to-wear, shoes, bags and accessories for womenswear, menswear and kidswear.
