Grubhub Inc. (NYSE: GRUB), the leading takeout marketplace, today announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2016.
"In our strong second quarter, Grubhub continued to build the most comprehensive marketplace connecting restaurants and takeout diners. We posted record net revenues and our best order growth in a year," said Matt Maloney, CEO. "Grubhub also generated a record number of orders in Q2 despite typical seasonal headwinds, as total order growth accelerated to 23% year-over-year."
The following results reflect the financial performance and key operating metrics of our business for the three months ended June 30, 2016 as compared to the same period in 2015.
"Product improvements, our delivery initiative and an updated brand drove better diner growth and significantly higher engagement in the second quarter," noted Maloney. "Demonstrating the powerful economics of scale in our business, we achieved an adjusted EBITDA margin of 31%, just under the levels in the first and second quarters of 2015 before we began investing meaningfully in our own delivery capabilities."

Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share attributable to common stockholders are financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or GAAP.
We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income adjusted to exclude acquisition and restructuring costs, income taxes, depreciation and amortization and stock-based compensation expense. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share attributable to common stockholders exclude acquisition and restructuring costs, amortization of acquired intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense and other nonrecurring items as well as the income tax effects of these non-GAAP adjustments. We use these non-GAAP financial measures as key performance measures because we believe they facilitate operating performance comparisons from period to period by excluding potential differences primarily caused by variations in capital structures, tax positions, the impact of acquisitions and restructuring, the impact of depreciation and amortization expense on our fixed assets and the impact of stock-based compensation expense. Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share attributable to common stockholders are not measurements of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP.
See "Schedule of Non-GAAP Financial Measures Reconciliation" below for a reconciliation of net income to Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share attributable to common stockholders.
