Revenues for the second quarter of 2009 were $4.7 million, compared to $6.5 million in the prior year period. The net loss was $(2.6) million, or $(0.10) per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2009 compared to $(3.1) million, or $(0.12) per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2008.

Adjusted EBITDA*, defined as net loss before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, severance charges and bad debt recovery or expense, for the quarter ended June 30, 2009 was $(0.5) million compared to $(1.4) million in the prior year period.

For the six months ended June 30, 2009, the Company recorded revenues of $10.0 million compared to $15.2 million for the same period last year. Net loss was $(5.5) million, or $(0.22) per share, compared to $(8.3) million, or $(0.33) per share, for the first six months of 2008. Adjusted EBITDA for the first half of 2009 totaled $(1.1) million compared to $(4.8) million in the comparable prior year period.

Second Quarter and Recent Operating Highlights:

  • Expanded margins on meal delivery program to 36% (excluding revenue share and promotional costs) from 31% in the first quarter
  • Customer retention on meal delivery is over eight weeks
  • Cash from operations was slightly positive in the second quarter
  • Completed $500,000 Private Placement with certain members of management and the Board of Directors

"We are encouraged by the results of our ongoing efforts to optimize our core digital, meal delivery and B2B business platform, improve the efficiency of our operations, and generate positive cash flow," said Kevin McGrath, President and Chief Executive Officer of eDiets.com. "The second quarter marked continued progress toward achieving our strategic goals. Meal delivery margins and our customer retention rate showed meaningful improvement from the first quarter and the prior year period, and we are making substantial progress in cutting costs and developing more effective ads and promotions. In addition, we significantly reduced our cash usage for the quarter."

Mr. McGrath continued, "We anticipate modest cash usage in the third quarter as we accelerate our ad spend and invest marketing dollars into a soft relaunch of our fresh meal delivery in the fall, including a new TV commercial. We believe that the actions we have taken have resulted in significant improvements in our business and we are making excellent progress towards our goals."

* Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In its earnings releases, conference calls, slide presentations or webcasts, the Company may use or discuss adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure as defined by SEC Regulation G. Management regularly reviews adjusted EBITDA as an analytical indicator of the Company's financial performance and believes that it is useful to investors in evaluating operating performance. In addition, the Company uses adjusted EBITDA as a measure of performance for its business segments and for incentive compensation purposes. The Company does not intend for adjusted EBITDA to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for any GAAP measure. Adjusted EBITDA, as presented, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
