The Beachbody Company, Inc. Announces Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results

The Beachbody Company, Inc. (NYSE: BODY) (“Beachbody” or the “Company”), a leading subscription health and wellness company, today announced financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2021.

“While we continued to execute on our strategy to drive growth, the third quarter proved more challenging than forecasted. Our results reflect a confluence of external factors, including softer at-home fitness demand as consumers grew tired of social distancing, and a challenging media environment that did not meet our disciplined ROI requirements, coupled with a short delay in product launches from September to October. Although our digital subscriber base remains strong and engaged with high levels of retention, we did not acquire new subscribers at the rate we expected,” said Carl Daikeler, Beachbody’s Co-Founder, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer. “We maintained disciplined cost control in the quarter, and we are taking immediate steps to improve customer acquisition and lifetime value, getting back on course to driving profitable growth. As both the CEO and the single largest shareholder, I am laser focused on driving revenue growth, creating value for shareholders, and delivering on our mission.”

Third Quarter 2021 Results

  • Total revenue was $208.1 million, a 17% decrease compared to 2020 and a 6% increase compared to 2019

  • Maximizing the Micro-Influencer Coach Network through the return of in-person live events and new product introductions
  • Maintaining Cost Discipline, including a transition to a work-from-anywhere environment with the successful lease assignment of our Santa Monica office
  • Strengthening the Leadership Team with a specific focus on revenue growth and long-term strategy, with appointments including:

    • Christina Cartwright appointed to the role of Senior Vice President, Nutrition effective October 28, 2021
    • Blake Bilstad appointed as Chief Legal Officer and Corporate Secretary effective October 28, 2021

2021 Guidance1

While the Company remains confident in the significant long-term opportunity in the health and wellness space, the third quarter results, delayed product launches, media spend reassessment, COVID-related consumer behavior and market uncertainty have resulted in a more conservative view for 2021 revenue compared to previous guidance.

Accordingly, for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021 the Company now expects:

  • Total revenue2 to be between $820.0 million and $830.0 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA2 to be between ($110.0) million and ($100.0) million, consistent with previous expectations

1 Net loss guidance is not reasonably available due to changes in stock compensation, taxes and other matters that we cannot forecast at this time.

2 Total revenue and Adjusted EBITDA project the post-merger consolidated revenue and Adjusted EBITDA ranges (with only six months and five days of Myx results in 2021 from 6/26/2021-12/31/2021).

Adjusted EBITDA

In addition to our results determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or GAAP, we believe the following non-GAAP financial measure of Adjusted EBITDA is useful in evaluating our operating performance.

We define and calculate Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) adjusted for depreciation and amortization, amortization of capitalized cloud computing implementation costs, amortization of content assets, interest expense, income taxes, equity-based compensation, and other items that are not normal, recurring, operating expenses necessary to operate the Company’s business.

The presentation of this non-GAAP financial measure is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA to GAAP measures can be found below:
