Continued Progress on Cost Reduction Initiatives in Transitional Quarter 
Products and Services Revenue Grew Slightly in Q2, Up 3.9% in First Half 
Net Loss and Adjusted EBITDA Loss Narrowed Quarter-over-Quarter and Year-over-Year
Gross Margins Improved from 18% to 21% in Second Quarter
Increased Retail as a Percentage of Sales

NEW YORK, Aug. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- XpresSpa Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:XSPA), a health and wellness holding company, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Ed Jankowski, XpresSpa Group CEO, stated, "Second quarter 2018 was a period of transition in which we took the next steps in our plan to reduce corporate overhead and store costs, refine our labor model and increase our process efficiencies to maximize both store-level and overall profitability. We generated general and administrative savings of $1.3 million on a sequential basis, excluding severance expense and other one-time costs totaling $0.6 million. Additionally, our cost reduction and operational improvement efforts at the store-level are producing immediate enhancements to store-level contribution margins, improving to 21% of sales in the second quarter, compared to 18% in the first quarter. Combined, these efforts have reduced our consolidated operating and adjusted EBITDA losses in the second quarter."

"During the second quarter, we made refinements to our store remodel and new buildout process, and opened 2 spa locations, one in Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport and one in New York's LaGuardia Airport, while closing two underperforming locations. New store contributions supported modest overall growth in revenue despite challenges such as airline reassignments in three key XpresSpa airport terminals, two store closures for remodeling, and staffing turnovers in three other locations. Even so, our store-level gross margin improved through increased retail sales in our revenue mix and tremendous improvements in our staffing efficiencies. Our new point-of-sale system's ability to provide real-time information is significantly enhancing our operational control, allowing us greater overall cost control of the variable components of our model. The actions we have taken to further improve our store model enhance XpresSpa's ability to capitalize on our position as the leading on-the-go spa experience provider, creating shareholder value while satisfying airports' need to offer travelers a compelling health and wellness solution and capture their discretionary dollars."

Mr. Jankowski concluded, "Looking into the second half of the year, we will rigorously continue our cost reduction initiatives and further streamline our corporate processes and related costs. We continue to compete in RFPs, but have implemented a thoughtful and regimented capital allocation framework which is focused on high-priority new store openings to ensure we are maximizing return on investment. We have three new store openings planned for the second half of 2018 and are also making progress on the implementation of our franchising model and expect to finalize some of these plans later in the year. Additionally, due to the high store-level contribution margins achieved in our international locations, we are looking at opportunities to expand our international footprint including additional locations in Amsterdam and Dubai. Last, we continue to develop strategic partnerships with leading health and wellness brands to broaden and enhance the range of products and services offered by XpresSpa. XpresSpa remains in demand by airport and real estate partners because of our unique offering and value proposition. In the second quarter, we delivered on our objective to improve our profitability, and remain focused on driving incremental increases throughout the rest of 2018."

Second Quarter 2018 Highlights

  • Total products and services revenue from continuing operations, increased 0.9% to $13.0 million in second quarter 2018 compared to $12.9 million in second quarter 2017 and increased 10.5% from $11.8 million in first quarter 2018.

- Same store sales decreased 3.5% as XpresSpa was impacted by changes in airline assignments within key LaGuardia, John F. Kennedy, and Los Angeles terminals, and to a lesser extent management changes in other locations. Same store sales in Pittsburgh and Charlotte were affected by new store openings, though overall revenue and profitability improved in those airports.

- Closed 2 locations in the second quarter: Philadelphia Terminal D and the original Raleigh-Durham location, which was replaced by a larger, better located spa that opened in the first quarter.

- Opened 2 locations in the second quarter, including a location in Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport, and a smaller location in LaGuardia Airport.

- Revenue was also affected by temporary closures related to spa remodels at John F Kennedy Terminal 1, which was closed for 15 days, and Amsterdam Lounge 3, which was closed for 51 days.

- Retail sales comprised 17% of revenue in second quarter 2018, compared to 19% in second quarter 2017 and 14% in first quarter 2018.

  • Product and service gross profit of $2.7 million, or 20.5% margin, grew 12.5% from second quarter 2017 gross profit of $2.4 million, or 18.6% margin, and $2.1 million, or 17.7% margin, in first quarter 2018.

- Labor costs decreased through greater efficiency in staffing and scheduling.

- Product and operating costs decreased due to cost control and the complete transition of product sourcing to the Company's strategic partner.

  • General and administrative expenses of $3.9 million were flat compared to $3.9 million in second quarter 2017 and decreased 15.2% from $4.6 million in first quarter 2018. Second quarter 2018 general and administrative included $0.4 million of severance expense associated with XpresSpa's rightsizing of its corporate structure. Excluding severance, expenses decreased through the elimination of costs and overhead and the streamlining of processes, as well as lower stock compensation expense of $0.3 million in second quarter 2018 compared to $0.5 million in second quarter 2017.
  • Operating loss from continuing operations decreased to $2.8 million from $4.6 million in second quarter 2017.
  • Net loss of $3.5 million improved from a loss of $7.0 million in second quarter 2017. Net loss decreased through increasing revenue and improvements in gross margin and reductions in general and administrative costs excluding severance as well as lower depreciation compared to last year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA* loss of $0.4 million improved from $0.6 million in second quarter 2017 and $1.5 million in first quarter 2018 through improved gross margin and reduced general and administrative expenses.

*EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures; see "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below. See tables below for abbreviated financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017.
