eBay Inc. (Nasdaq: EBAY), a global commerce leader that connects millions of buyers and sellers around the world, today reported financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

“Our team’s focus on supporting small businesses and communities during a period of heightened need allowed us to re-engage our existing buyers and sellers while introducing approximately 8 million
new customers to our platform during the quarter,” said Jamie Iannone, Chief Executive Officer of eBay Inc. “This contributed to a very strong second quarter, ahead of expectations. Recently, we’ve
also accelerated the rollout of managed payments and signed an agreement to transfer our Classifieds business to Adevinta, bringing together two highly complementary businesses to create the
world’s largest online classifieds group.”

“Our purpose has always been to empower people and create economic opportunity for all,” continued Iannone. “As we look to the future, our vision is clear – we will build on our powerful strengths
to become the best global marketplace for buyers and sellers through a technology-led reimagination. We will accomplish this vision through three key priorities: build compelling next-gen
experiences for our enthusiasts; become the partner of choice for sellers; and cultivate life-long trusted buyer relationships.”

Second Quarter Financial Highlights

  • Revenue was $2.9 billion, up 18% on an as-reported basis and up 21% on a foreign exchange (FX) neutral basis.
  • Annual active buyers grew by 5%, adding approximately 8 million buyers in the quarter, for a total of 182 million global active buyers.
  • Gross merchandise volume (GMV) was $27.1 billion, with growth accelerating sequentially since Q1, and up 26% on an as-reported basis and up 29%
    on a FX-Neutral basis, year on year.
  • Marketplace platforms delivered $2.7 billion of revenue, up 24% on an as-reported basis and up 26% on a FX-Neutral basis.
  • Classifieds platforms delivered revenue of $201 million, down 26% on an as-reported basis and down 24% on a FX-Neutral basis.
  • GAAP net income from continuing operations was $740 million, or $1.04 per diluted share.
  • Non-GAAP net income from continuing operations was $770 million, or $1.08 per diluted share.
  • Generated $964 million of operating cash flow and $866 million of free cash flow from continuing operations.
  • Announced pricing of $750 million senior unsecured notes offering on June 8, 2020, with the intention of using proceeds from the offering to repay
    debt maturities coming due in 2021.
  • Repaid $500 million of 2.150% senior fixed rate notes due 2020 that matured in the quarter, and completed a tender offer to purchase any and all of
    the $750 million of 2.875% senior fixed rate notes due in 2021, purchasing approximately 44% of the outstanding 2.875% senior notes in Q2.

Business Highlights

  • Following a thorough review of eBay’s Classifieds business, on July 21, 2020, eBay announced it had entered into a definitive agreement to transfer
    its Classifieds business to Adevinta for a total consideration valued at approximately $9.2 billion, based on the closing trading price of Adevinta shares on the Oslo Stock Exchange on July 17,
    2020. eBay will receive $2.5 billion of cash and 540 million shares of Adevinta, representing 44% ownership of the pro forma company, and an approximate 33.3% voting stake. The transaction is
    expected to close by Q1 2021, subject to approval of Adevinta stockholders and other customary conditions.
  • eBay’s managed payments reached a significant milestone at the end of July with the expiration of its Operating Agreement with PayPal. Now, eBay is
    able to scale its management of payments globally, offering buyers more choice and flexibility in payment options and simplifying business operations for sellers. Since launch, eBay has managed
    payments for nearly 42,000 sellers and processed $4.7 billion in GMV.
  • Marketplace platforms have experienced strength in key metrics – traffic, buyer acquisition, conversion, sold items, and GMV – driven by consumer
    behavior shift to e-commerce shopping resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. All major verticals accelerated significantly compared to previous quarters, including Home & Garden, Electronics,
    Fashion, Auto Parts and Collectibles.
  • In Q2, Promoted Listings delivered $196 million of revenue, up 120% on an as-reported basis and up 124% on a FX-Neutral basis.
  • Programs like eBay’s Up & Running to support small businesses continued to expand globally, now with adaptations in over 25 markets, most recently
    announced in the Baltics, Malaysia and Singapore.
  • To improve seller onboarding, eBay recently launched improvements to seller registration, updating the Welcome Tour and Get Started overview in an
    effort to help new sellers onboard more easily. The company also boosted seller presence by launching Storefronts in the mobile app.
  • Seller Hub capabilities continue to grow with the launch of several new features including expanded multi-user authentication capabilities, real-time
    competitive pricing and traffic data and enhanced our competitive pricing analytics to include the search of item specifics in addition to title.
  • eBay announced the launch of Dark Mode, a feature that provides a more comfortable viewing experience for users and can be enabled in the device
    settings, for eBay mobile apps on iOS and Android. This was the most requested app feature by customers, and eBay was one of the first e-commerce companies to implement the feature.
  • eBay Motors mobile app launched escrow services to enable a safe, secure transaction via a new partnership with Escrow.com, along with additional chat
    features.
  • Through its Gumtree Australia classifieds business, the acquisition of Cox Australia Media Solutions completed on June 1, 2020, combining the strength
    of Gumtree, CarsGuide.com.au and Autotrader.com.au to create an attractive car-buying platform for Australian consumers.
  • In addition to the charitable donations reported during the company’s mid-quarter update in June, in the U.K., the company donated $2.1 million as
    part of the Charity Connect training program to upskill U.K. charities to boost their online sales, $650,000 to NHS Charities Together COVID Appeal, and $260,000 to the Stephen Lawrence Charitable
    Foundation, which works to build a fair and inclusive society.

Business Outlook

  • Third quarter 2020 — The company expects net revenue between $2.64 billion and $2.71 billion, representing Organic FX-Neutral growth of 14% – 17%,
    with GAAP earnings per diluted share from continuing operations in the range of $0.58 – $0.64 and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share from continuing operations in the range of $0.81 – $0.87.
  • Full year 2020 — The company expects net revenue between $10.56 billion and $10.75 billion, representing Organic FX-Neutral growth of 12% – 14%, with
    GAAP earnings per diluted share from continuing operations in the range of $2.85 – $3.00 and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share from continuing operations in the range of $3.47 – $3.59.
  • This guidance reflects management’s expectations for operational performance and the impacts seen in both of our Marketplaces and Classifieds
    platforms to date, but it is difficult to predict exactly how buyer behavior, retail channel shifts, and changes in the economic environment will affect our volume over time. The guidance we are
    providing assumes Classifieds results are included in the entire year. We will provide updates moving forward as appropriate.

    to stockholders of record as of September 1, 2020.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes the following financial measures defined as “non-GAAP financial measures” by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC): non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP earnings per
diluted share, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP effective tax rate, free cash flow and FX-Neutral basis. These non-GAAP financial measures are presented on a continuing operations basis. These
measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The presentation of this financial information, which is not prepared under any comprehensive set of accounting
rules or principles, is not intended to be considered in isolation of, or as a substitute for, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting

release. For figures in this press release reported “on a FX-Neutral basis”, we calculate the year-over-year impact of foreign currency movements using prior period foreign currency rates applied
to current year transactional currency amounts. We define Organic FX-Neutral revenue growth as reported revenue growth, excluding incremental revenue from acquisitions or dispositions for the
twelve-month period following such acquisitions or dispositions and foreign exchange rate effects.

eBay Inc.
Non-GAAP Measures of Financial Performance

To supplement the company’s condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, the company uses non-GAAP measures of certain
components of financial performance. These non-GAAP measures include non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP earnings per diluted share, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP effective tax rate, free cash flow
and figures in this press release presented on a “FX-Neutral basis”. These non-GAAP financial measures are presented on a continuing operations basis.

These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative to, measures prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In addition,
these non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. Non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with
the company’s results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP. These measures should only be used to evaluate the company’s results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding
GAAP measures.

Reconciliation to the nearest GAAP measure of all non-GAAP measures included in this press release, except for figures in this press release presented on a “FX-Neutral basis”, can be found in the
tables included in this press release. For figures in this press release reported “on a FX-Neutral basis”, the company calculates the year-over-year impact of foreign currency movements using prior
period foreign currency rates applied to current year transactional currency amounts. The company defines organic FX-Neutral revenue growth as reported revenue growth, excluding incremental revenue
from acquisitions or dispositions for the twelve-month period following such acquisitions or dispositions and foreign exchange rate effects.

These non-GAAP measures are provided to enhance investors’ overall understanding of the company’s current financial performance and its prospects for the future. Specifically, the company believes
the non-GAAP measures provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses, gains and losses, or net purchases of property and equipment, as the case may be,
that may not be indicative of its core operating results and business outlook. In addition, because the company has historically reported certain non-GAAP results to investors, the company believes
that the inclusion of non-GAAP measures provides consistency in the company’s financial reporting.

For its internal budgeting process, and as discussed further below, the company’s management uses financial measures that do not include stock-based compensation expense, employer payroll taxes on
stock-based compensation, amortization or impairment of acquired intangible assets, impairment of goodwill, amortization of deferred tax assets associated with the realignment of its legal
structure and related foreign exchange effects, significant gains or losses from the disposal/acquisition of a business, certain gains and losses on investments, gains or losses associated with a
warrant agreement that the company entered into with Adyen, restructuring-related charges and the income taxes associated with the foregoing. In addition to the corresponding GAAP measures, the
company’s management also uses the foregoing non-GAAP measures in reviewing the financial results of the company.

The company excludes the following items from non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP earnings per diluted share, non-GAAP operating margin and non-GAAP effective tax rate:

Stock-based compensation expense and related employer payroll taxes. This expense consists of expenses for stock options, restricted stock and employee stock purchases. The company
excludes stock-based compensation expense from its non-GAAP measures primarily because they are non-cash expenses that management does not believe are reflective of ongoing operating results. The
related employer payroll taxes are dependent on the company’s stock price and the timing and size of exercises by employees of their stock options and the vesting of their restricted stock, over
which management has limited to no control, and as such management does not believe it correlates to the company’s operation of the business.

Amortization or impairment of acquired intangible assets, impairment of goodwill, certain amortization of deferred tax assets and related foreign exchange effects, significant gains or losses
and transaction expenses from the acquisition or disposal of a business and certain gains or losses on investments.
The company incurs amortization or impairment of acquired intangible assets
and goodwill in connection with acquisitions and may incur significant gains or losses from the acquisition or disposal of a business and therefore excludes these amounts from its non-GAAP
measures. The company also excludes certain gains and losses on investments. The company excludes the non-cash amortization of deferred tax assets associated with the realignment of its legal
structure, which is not reduced by the effects of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, and related foreign exchange effects. The company excludes these items because management does not believe they
correlate to the ongoing operating results of the company’s business.

Restructuring. These charges consist of expenses for employee severance and other exit and disposal costs. The company excludes significant restructuring charges primarily because
management does not believe they are reflective of ongoing operating results.

Other certain significant gains, losses, or charges that are not indicative of the company’s core operating results. These are significant gains, losses, or charges during a period that
are the result of isolated events or transactions which have not occurred frequently in the past and are not expected to occur regularly or be repeated in the future. The company excludes
these amounts from its results primarily because management does not believe they are indicative of its current or ongoing operating results.

Change in fair market value of warrant. These are gains or losses associated with a warrant agreement that the company entered into with Adyen, which are attributable to changes in
fair value during the period.

Tax effect of non-GAAP adjustments. This amount is used to present stock-based compensation and the other amounts described above on an after-tax basis consistent with the
presentation of non-GAAP net income.

In addition to the non-GAAP measures discussed above, the company also uses free cash flow. Free cash flow represents operating cash flows less purchases of property and equipment. The company
considers free cash flow to be a liquidity measure that provides useful information to management and investors about the amount of cash generated by the business after the purchases of property,
buildings, and equipment, which can then be used to, among other things, invest in the company’s business, make strategic acquisitions, repurchase stock and pay dividends. A limitation of the
utility of free cash flow as a measure of financial performance is that it does not represent the total increase or decrease in the company’s cash balance for the period.
