Q2‘23 net income was impacted by $17.9 million of stock-based compensation expense, $5.7 million of which related to the non-recurring awards granted to our co-founders in connection with our IPO, and a $46.7 million tax benefit principally from the release of our valuation allowance against our net deferred tax assets.

Second Quarter 2023 Financial Overview (all comparisons are made to the same period of the prior year unless otherwise noted):

Total revenue decreased 1% to $189.7 million compared to $191.8 million. Prescription transactions revenue increased 2% to $136.5 million compared to $134.4 million, primarily driven by a 5% increase in Monthly Active Consumers, partially offset by an ongoing shift in the volume of prescription transactions to certain retailers with lower pricing principally due to the sustained impact of the grocer issue. Pharma manufacturer solutions revenue decreased 8% to $24.3 million compared to $26.6 million, primarily driven by our increased focus on prioritizing service arrangements with high levels of recurring revenue potential and moderation in spending across pharma manufacturers, partially offset by revenue contribution from vitaCare, which we acquired in April 2022. Subscription revenue decreased 8% to $23.9 million compared to $26.0 million, primarily driven by a 14% decrease in subscription plans as of June 30, 2023, largely as a result of the sunset of our partnership subscription program, Kroger Savings Club, partially offset by the effects of the pricing increase for Gold subscribers in the first half of 2022. Other revenue stayed relatively flat year-over-year.

Cost of revenues decreased 9% to $16.3 million, or 9% of revenue, compared to $18.0 million, or 9% of revenue, primarily driven by a decrease in fulfillment costs for certain solutions provided to customers under our pharma manufacturer solutions offering. Adjusted cost of revenues2 decreased 10% to $16.1 million, or 9% of revenue, compared to $17.9 million, or 9% of revenue.

Product development and technology expenses decreased 12% to $31.3 million, or 16% of revenue, compared to $35.4 million, or 18% of revenue, primarily driven by a decrease in payroll and related costs due to lower average headcount and higher capitalization of certain qualified costs related to software development. Adjusted product development and technology expenses2 decreased 6% to $23.5 million, or 12% of revenue, compared to $25.0 million, or 13% of revenue.

Sales and marketing expenses decreased 18% to $77.4 million, or 41% of revenue, compared to $94.3 million, or 49% of revenue, primarily driven by a decrease in payroll and related costs due to a reversal of previously recognized stock-based compensation expense as certain performance milestones were no longer probable of being met and lower average headcount as well as a net decrease in advertising and promotional expenses as we proactively managed our spend to better align with our strategic goals and future scale. Adjusted sales and marketing expenses2 decreased 7% to $80.4 million, or 42% of revenue, compared to $86.9 million, or 45% of revenue.

General and administrative expenses decreased 13% to $30.2 million, or 16% of revenue, compared to $34.7 million, or 18% of revenue, primarily driven by a decrease in stock-based compensation expense related to our co-founders awards, partially offset by an increase in payroll and related expenses. Adjusted general and administrative expenses2 increased 10% to $16.2 million, or 9% of revenue, compared to $14.7 million, or 8% of revenue.

Net income was $58.8 million compared to a net loss of $1.4 million, primarily driven by an increase in our income tax benefit of $46.7 million, compared to $8.7 million, due to the discrete release of $55.9 million of our beginning-of-the-year valuation allowance against our net deferred tax assets. Net income margin was 31.0% compared to a net loss margin of 0.7%. Adjusted Net Income2 was $28.4 million compared to Adjusted Net Income of $27.2 million.

Adjusted EBITDA2 was $53.5 million compared to $47.2 million, primarily driven by a decrease in sales and marketing spend, partially offset by the impact of the grocer issue. Adjusted EBITDA Margin2 was 28.2% compared to 24.6%.

Cash Flow and Capital Allocation

Net cash provided by operating activities in the second quarter was $29.9 million compared to $51.0 million in the comparable period last year, largely driven by a change to net income from net loss, offset by a decrease in non-cash adjustments and an increase in cash outflows from working capital changes. The decrease in non-cash adjustments was primarily driven by an increase in deferred income tax as a result of the discrete release of substantially the entirety of the valuation allowance against our net deferred tax assets in the quarter ended June 30, 2023 and a year-over-year decrease in stock-based compensation expense related to our co-founders’ awards. The changes in operating assets and liabilities were primarily driven by the timing of income tax payments and refunds, as well as by the timing of payments of accounts payable and accrued expenses and collections of accounts receivable. As of June 30, 2023, GoodRx had cash and cash equivalents of $762.0 million and total outstanding debt of $663.6 million.

GoodRx is focused on a disciplined approach to capital allocation, centered on furthering the Company’s mission and creating shareholder value. Our capital allocation priorities are investing for profitable growth, paying down debt, buying back shares, and M&A that aligns with our strategic priorities. These priorities support GoodRx’s long-term growth strategy while also providing flexibility to navigate near-term challenges.

Share Repurchases

During the second quarter of 2023, we repurchased $8.9 million in shares of Class A common stock, representing approximately 1.7 million shares. As of June 30, 2023, we had $129.8 million remaining of our $250.0 million share repurchase authorization approved by our board of directors during the first quarter 2022.

“We are guiding to third quarter revenue in the range of $186 million to $190 million and Adjusted EBITDA Margin in the mid-to-high twenty-percent range,” said Karsten Voermann, Chief Financial Officer. “In the back half of this year, we’ll continue to balance business imperatives for 2024 and beyond with immediate results. For our pharma manufacturer solutions offering specifically, we are becoming more focused on what we’re selling and to whom. In connection with that, we have taken certain actions to see cost savings, for example at vitaCare, that we expect will translate into incremental Adjusted EBITDA in the low-to-mid-single-digit millions of dollars range but also some revenue attenuation relative to our previous perspectives and 2023 guidance as a result. We’re also making volume vs. margin trade-offs in our direct contracting approach with retailers that may lead to a short-term headwind for prescription transactions revenue growth. These assumptions are reflected in our guidance.”

“Our balance sheet and liquidity position remained strong in the second quarter, while generating healthy cash flow from operations. We will continue to prioritize cash conversion and disciplined capital deployment to support our strategic priorities and accelerate value creation,” concluded Voermann.

5

Adjusted EBITDA Margin is a non-GAAP financial measure and is presented for supplemental informational purposes only. We have not reconciled our Adjusted EBITDA Margin guidance to GAAP net income or loss margin, because we do not provide guidance for GAAP net income or loss margin due to the uncertainty and potential variability of stock-based compensation expense, acquired intangible assets and related amortization and income taxes, which are reconciling items between Adjusted EBITDA Margin and GAAP net income or loss margin. Because such items cannot be provided without unreasonable efforts, we are unable to provide a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure guidance to the corresponding GAAP measure. However, such items could have a significant impact on our future GAAP net income or loss margin.

Key Operating Metrics

Monthly Active Consumers (MACs) refers to the number of unique consumers who have used a GoodRx code to purchase a prescription medication in a given calendar month and have saved money compared to the list price of the medication. A unique consumer who uses a GoodRx code more than once in a calendar month to purchase prescription medications is only counted as one Monthly Active Consumer in that month. A unique consumer who uses a GoodRx code in two or three calendar months within a quarter will be counted as a Monthly Active Consumer in each such month. Monthly Active Consumers do not include subscribers to our subscription offerings, consumers of our pharma manufacturer solutions offering, or consumers who use our telehealth offerings. When presented for a period longer than a month, Monthly Active Consumers are averaged over the number of calendar months in such period. Monthly Active Consumers from acquired companies are only included beginning in the first full quarter following the acquisition.

Subscription plans represent the ending subscription plan balance across both of our subscription offerings, GoodRx Gold and Kroger Savings Club. Each subscription plan may represent more than one subscriber since family subscription plans may include multiple members.

We exited the second quarter of 2023 with over 7 million prescription-related consumers that used GoodRx across our prescription transactions and subscription offerings. Our prescription-related consumers represent the sum of Monthly Active Consumers for the three months ended June 30, 2023 and subscribers to our subscription plans as of June 30, 2023.
