ODDITY Tech Reports Record Third Quarter Results, Exceeds Guidance and Raises Full Year Revenue and Profit Outlook

NEW YORK, Nov. 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ODDITY Tech Ltd. (NASDAQ: ODD) today announced its financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2023.

“Our third quarter is our best third quarter ever, exceeding our guidance. We delivered net revenue growth of 60% and adjusted EBITDA of $91 million in the first nine months of 2023, and are increasing our sales and profit outlook for the full year,” said Oran Holtzman, ODDITY co-founder and CEO. “We continue to deliver excellent growth and profitability for IL MAKIAGE and SpoiledChild, while building powerful engines to scale our business and expand our lead in 2024 and beyond. Our business continues to fire on all cylinders and is the strongest it has ever been. Our large investments in technology and data capabilities over the past five years are enabling us to continue to grow fast without damaging our high margins and strong profitability.

ODDITY achieved a number of objectives during the third quarter, supporting strong financial performance today and positioning the business for the future. These include:

  • Better-than-expected financial results for the third quarter and an improved outlook for the full year 2023.
  • Excellent, profitable growth at both IL MAKIAGE and SpoiledChild brands across markets and products.
  • Progress in the ODDITY LABS molecule discovery platform, powered by the Revela integration, including tripling the lab headcount with majority PhD hires.
  • Strong financial position including $164 million of cash, restricted cash, and short-term deposits, with no debt on the balance sheet. This cash position was supported by $78 million of free-cash flow year-to-date.

“We are pleased with our third quarter results, which exceeded the initial guidance we issued in August, as well as the preliminary results we reported in October across sales, gross profit, and adjusted EBITDA. The upside relative to our guidance was driven in part by stronger repeat sales relative to our previous outlook. We reinvested a portion of this revenue upside against future growth initiatives including new brands and markets, which is consistent with our commitment to long-term reinvestment,” said Lindsay Drucker Mann, ODDITY Global CFO. “Our superior financial results in the third quarter reflect the strength of our model, and our significant runway for profitable growth ahead. The third quarter upside, combined with strong momentum in the fourth quarter, leads us to increase our full year outlook across all key financial metrics.”

  Current 4Q 2023 Outlook
Net Revenue $82-85 million

Adjusted Diluted EPS $0.10-0.12


Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted net income, Adjusted net income margin and Adjusted Diluted EPS are non-GAAP financial measures. Please see the sections titled “Non GAAP Financial Measures” and “Reconciliations of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures” below for more information regarding ODDITY’s use of non-GAAP financial measures and reconciliations to the most directly comparable GAAP measures. ODDITY has not provided a quantitative reconciliation of its Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Diluted EPS outlook to the corresponding net income and diluted EPS GAAP measures, because the quantification of certain items included in the calculation of GAAP net income and GAAP diluted EPS cannot be calculated or predicted at this time without unreasonable efforts. However, for the fourth quarter and full year 2023, ODDITY expects stock-based compensation expense as set forth above. ODDITY is unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable reconciling items, which could have a potentially unpredictable, and potentially significant, impact on its future GAAP financial results.

The financial outlook figures presented above are forward-looking statements that are subject to a variety of assumptions and estimates. Actual results may differ materially from ODDITY’s financial outlook as a result of, among other things, the factors described under “Forward-Looking Statements” below.

Conference Call Details:

A conference call to discuss ODDITY’s Q3 2023 financial and business results and outlook is scheduled for tomorrow, November 8, 2023, at 8:30 a.m. ET. To participate, please dial 1-844-826-3035 (US) or 1-412-317-5195 (international) and the conference ID 10183310. A webcast of the call will be accessible on the Investors section of ODDITY’s website at https://investors.oddity.com. A recording will be available shortly after the conclusion of the call.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

In addition to the GAAP financial measures set forth in this press release, ODDITY has included the following non-GAAP financial measures: Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted net income, Adjusted net income margin and Adjusted Diluted EPS. ODDITY believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information to management and investors to help evaluate ODDITY’s business, measure its performance, identify trends, prepare financial projections and make business decisions.

ODDITY defines “Adjusted EBITDA” as net income before financial expenses (income), net, taxes on income, and depreciation and amortization as further adjusted to exclude share-based compensation expense and non-recurring adjustments. “Adjusted EBITDA margin” is defined as Adjusted EBITDA divided by net revenue. ODDITY believes Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin are useful for financial and operational decision-making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. By excluding certain items that may not be indicative of its recurring core operating results, ODDITY believes that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin are widely used by investors and securities analysts to measure a company’s operating performance without regard to items such as depreciation and amortization, interest expense, and interest income, which can vary substantially from company to company depending on their financing and capital structures and the method by which their assets were acquired.

ODDITY defines “Adjusted net income” as net income adjusted for the impact of share-based compensation, non-recurring adjustments and the tax effect of non-GAAP adjustments and “Adjusted net income margin” as Adjusted net income divided by net revenue. In addition, ODDITY defines “Adjusted diluted earnings per share” as Adjusted net income divided by diluted shares outstanding. ODDITY believes the presentations of Adjusted net income, Adjusted net income margin, and Adjusted diluted earnings per share are useful because they are frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in our industry. Further, ODDITY believes 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.

ODDITY’s non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or in isolation from, its financial results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate these measures differently or not at all, which reduces their usefulness as comparative measures.

Reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures are included with the financial tables at the end of this release under the heading “Reconciliations of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures.”
