“Despite a challenging retail environment, our business continues to be profitable for the tenth consecutive quarter, and we ended the quarter with a strong balance sheet and cash position,” said Overstock CEO Jonathan Johnson. “Our sales trends improved in late-Q3, including a successful Labor Day event that culminated into our biggest sales day of the year thus far. We improved gross margin by leveraging our differentiated asset-light business model, supported our vendor partners to move through ample inventory, and continued to provide smart value to our customers in a highly promotional time. We accomplished this while navigating shifting consumer spending preferences, high inflation and macro headwinds that put pressure on our industry.”

“We launched our new national brand campaign in early October centered around our vision of ‘Making Dream Homes Come True’,” continued Johnson. “This campaign supports our efforts to increase the association of Overstock’s high brand-name awareness with ‘home’ and positions us well to grow market share into the future. We are managing through near-term challenges while focusing on efforts that I expect will help drive long-term growth. I am pleased with the team’s ability to balance both. I look forward to providing a full update on our third quarter 2022 performance during our earnings call.”
