May 8, 2024 at 4:10 PM EDT

OAKLAND, Calif., May 08, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ContextLogic Inc. (Nasdaq: WISH) (“ContextLogic,” the “Company,” “we” or “our”) today reported its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2024.

Introductory Note 

Prior to the April 19, 2024 closing of the Asset Sale described below, ContextLogic owned and operated the Wish platform, a mobile ecommerce platform.  As a result of the Asset Sale, ContextLogic no longer owns the Wish platform or any of the related operating assets.  Since the Asset Sale was not completed until after the end of the first quarter, the financial results described below do not reflect the impact of the Asset Sale or our post-closing operations. 

First-Quarter 2024 Financial Highlights

  • Revenues: Revenues were $36 million, a decrease of 63% YoY
    • Core Marketplace revenues were $11 million, down 61% YoY
    • Product Boost revenues were $3 million, down 63% YoY
    • Logistics revenues were $22 million, down 63% YoY
  • Net Loss: Net Loss was $59 million, compared to a net loss of $89 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2023
    • Net Loss per share was $2.43, compared to a loss of $3.83 per share in the first quarter of fiscal 2023
  • As of March 31, 2024, we had $250 million in cash and cash equivalents
  • After quarter-end, we completed the sale of substantially all of our assets.

Company Update

As previously disclosed, on April 19, 2024, we completed the sale of substantially all of our assets to Qube Network Pte. Ltd. (the “Buyer”), an affiliate of Qoo10 Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Qoo10 Delaware”), other than (A) our federal income tax net operating loss carryforwards ("NOLs") and certain of our other tax attributes, (B) our marketable securities and (C) certain of our cash and cash equivalents (the “Asset Sale”) pursuant to the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement, dated February 10, 2024, by and among us, Qoo10 Delaware and, for certain specified purposes, Qoo10 Pte. Ltd., a Singapore private limited company and the parent of both Qoo10 Delaware and the Buyer (as amended or modified, the “Asset Purchase Agreement”). 

As a result of Asset Sale, the Company had approximately $161 million in cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities (consisting of government securities) immediately following the closing of that transaction (“Post-Closing Cash”), as well as the NOLs and other tax attributes described above.  As required by the Asset Purchase Agreement, the Buyer assumed substantially all of our liabilities at closing. 

“We are very pleased to have completed the previously announced sale of the Wish ecommerce platform to Qoo10.  On behalf of the entire ContextLogic team, I would like to thank our stockholders for their support of this value-maximizing transaction,” said Rishi Bajaj, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board.  “Looking ahead, our reconstituted Board and management team will focus on identifying and executing strategic opportunities for the benefit of ContextLogic and its stockholders.” 

Following the completion of the Asset Sale, ContextLogic has exited the operation of our e-commerce business and other historical operations.  However, we do not currently intend to liquidate. We have begun to review strategic opportunities for the use of our Post-Closing Cash.  We will develop a process and procedures for evaluating alternatives for the use of our Post-Closing Cash, and reviewing, identifying and executing strategic opportunities for the benefit of ContextLogic and its stockholders. Those alternatives are currently expected to include using the Post-Closing Cash to fund, at least in part, the acquisition of assets that will potentially allow the Company to utilize the NOLs and certain other tax attributes.
