CAFEPRESS INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited)

1. Business and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Business
CafePress Inc. (the "Company," "we," "us," "our") is a retailer of gifts and expressories. We take pride in helping to facilitate human connections by inspiring people to express themselves with the best assortment of engaging merchandise. We were founded in 1999 as a California corporation, we reincorporated in Delaware in 2005 and we completed our initial public offering in April 2012.
We are a leading retailer of personalized products offering a wide variety of expressive gifts and accessories, including t-shirts and apparel, mugs and drinkware and home goods such as custom shower curtains and bed coverings. We conduct most of our business on our primary United States-based domain, CafePress.com and operate CafePress branded websites for the markets in the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia. We also sell CafePress branded products through other online retail partners such as Amazon and Walmart. Our products are customized with expressive designs contributed through a variety of means, including crowd-sourced user generated content, stock art licenses and licensed content relationships with large entertainment companies and brands. Our distinctive items bring our customers' passions to life and connect people to each other.
Our production facility and fulfillment center in Louisville, Kentucky has innovative technology and manufacturing processes that enable us to provide high-quality customized products that are individually built to order. Our proprietary processes enable us to produce a broad range of merchandise efficiently and profitably. We also maintain a diverse network of contract manufacturers that give us the ability to broaden our manufacturing capabilities and produce in certain international locales.
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("U.S. GAAP") and follow the requirements of the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") for interim reporting. As permitted under those rules, certain footnotes or other financial information that are normally required by U.S. GAAP can be condensed or omitted. These financial statements have been prepared on the same basis as our annual financial statements and, in the opinion of management, reflect all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments that are necessary for a fair statement of our financial information. The results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2017 or for any other interim period or for any other future year. The balance sheet as of December 31, 2016 has been derived from audited financial statements at that date but does not include all of the information required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements.
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements and related financial information should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and the related notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2016 included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K as filed on March 10, 2017 with the SEC. Our critical accounting policies are revenue recognition, property and equipment, inventory and income taxes. Our significant accounting policies are more fully described in Note 1 to the Consolidated Financial Statements included in Item 8. "Financial Statements and Supplementary Data of our Annual Report on Form 10-K.
Segments
Our Chief Executive Officer manages our operations on a consolidated basis for purposes of allocating resources. Thus, we have a single operating segment which is our single reportable segment. Our principal operations and decision-making functions are in the United States.

Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. On an ongoing basis, we evaluate our estimates, including but not limited to those related to revenue recognition, provisions for doubtful accounts, credit card chargebacks, sales returns, inventory write-downs, stock-based compensation, legal contingencies, depreciable lives and income taxes, including required valuation allowances. We base our estimates on historical experience, projections for future performance and other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results could differ materially from those estimates.
Income taxes
There was no unrecognized tax benefit for any period presented.
We recognize interest and/or penalties related to all tax positions in income tax expense. To the extent that accrued interest and penalties do not ultimately become payable, amounts accrued will be reduced and reflected as a reduction of the overall income tax provision in the period that such determination is made. No interest or penalties have been accrued for any period presented.
We have weighed both positive and negative evidence and have determined that there is a need for a valuation allowance due to the existence of three years of historical cumulative losses, which we considered significant verifiable negative evidence. As of June 30, 2017, we maintain a valuation allowance on substantially all of our deferred tax assets.
Seasonality
Seasonal and cyclical influences impact our business volume. A significant portion of our sales are realized in conjunction with traditional retail holidays with the largest sales volume in the fourth quarter of each calendar year. Our offering of custom gifts for the holidays combined with consumers’ continued shift to online purchasing drive this trend. As a result of this seasonality, our revenue in each of the first three quarters of the year is generally substantially lower than our revenue in the fourth quarter of each year, and we expect this trend to continue in the foreseeable future.
Recent accounting pronouncements

In May 2017, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2017-09, Compensation-Stock Compensation (Topic 718) Scope of Modification Accounting. ASU 2017-09 will clarify and reduce both (i) diversity in practice and (ii) cost and complexity when applying the guidance in Topic 718, to a change to the terms and conditions of a share-based payment award. This guidance will become effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017 and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted. The amendments in this ASU should be applied prospectively to an award modified on or after the adoption date. We are currently evaluating the impact of this updated standard, but we do not believe this update will have a significant impact on our consolidated financial statements.

In November 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-18, Statement of Cash Flows - Restricted Cash (a consensus of the FASB Emerging Issues Task Force). ASU 2016-18 requires restricted cash and cash equivalents to be included with cash and cash equivalents on the statement of cash flows under a retrospective transition approach. The guidance will become effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017 and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted, and we do not expect the adoption of this accounting standard will have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230) Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments. ASU 2016-15 eliminates the diversity in practice related to the classification of certain cash receipts and payments for debt prepayment or extinguishment costs, the maturing of a zero-coupon bond, the settlement of contingent liabilities arising from a business combination, proceeds from insurance settlements, distributions from certain equity method investees and beneficial interests obtained in a financial asset securitization. ASU 2016-15 designates the appropriate cash flow classification, including requirements to allocate certain components of these cash receipts and payments among operating, investing and financing activities. The retrospective transition method, requiring adjustment to all comparative periods presented, is required unless it is impracticable for some of the amendments, in which case those amendments would be treated prospectively as of the earliest date practicable. The guidance will become effective for annual periods beginning after

7


December 15, 2017. We do not expect the adoption of this standard to have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.
In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-04, Recognition of Breakage for Certain Prepaid Stored-Value Products. The ASU exempts prepaid gift certificates from the guidance on extinguishing financial liabilities. The gift certificates will be subject to breakage accounting consistent with ASU 2014-09 Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606). Breakage should only be recognized to the extent that it is probable that a significant reversal of the recognized breakage amount will not subsequently occur. The ASU is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017 and is applied either using a modified retrospective transition method or retrospectively. Early adoption is permitted. Adoption of the standard is not expected to have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.
In March 2016, the FASB issued 2016-09, Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718) Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting, which simplifies several aspects of accounting for share-based payment transactions, including the income tax consequences, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities, an option to make an accounting policy election to either estimate forfeitures on stock-based payment awards as previously required, or to recognize forfeitures as they occur, as well as certain classifications on the statement of cash flows. We adopted this ASU on January 1, 2017 and elected to recognize forfeitures as they occur, and the impact of that change in accounting was recorded as a $0.2 million cumulative effect adjustment to increase additional paid-in-capital and accumulated deficit. The other provisions of this accounting standard did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements and footnote disclosures.
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842). ASU 2016-02 requires lessees to recognize the following for all leases (with the exception of short-term leases) at the commencement date: a lease liability, which is a lessee's obligation to make lease payments arising from a lease, measured on a discounted basis; and a right-of-use asset, which is an asset that represents the lessee’s right to use, or control the use of, a specified asset for the lease term. Under the new guidance, lessor accounting is largely unchanged. Certain targeted improvements were made to align, where necessary, lessor accounting with the lessee accounting model and ASU 2014-9, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606). The new lease guidance also simplified the accounting for sale and leaseback transactions primarily because lessees must recognize lease assets and lease liabilities. Lessees will no longer be provided with a source of off-balance sheet financing. Lessees (for capital and operating leases) and lessors (for sales-type, direct financing, and operating leases) must apply a modified retrospective transition approach for leases existing at, or entered into after, the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented in the financial statements. The modified retrospective approach would not require any transition accounting for leases that expired before the earliest comparative period presented. Lessees and lessors may not apply a full retrospective transition approach. ASU 2016-02 is effective for financial statements issued for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2018. Our preliminary analysis indicates that, for our one remaining operating lease that will be in effect, upon adoption of Topic 842, we will record an estimated lease right-of-use asset of $1.9 million and a corresponding lease liability of $1.9 million. We are still evaluating the qualitative and quantitative disclosures that will be required when we adopt the standard.
In July 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-11, Inventory - Simplifying the Measurement of Inventory (Topic 330). ASU 2015-11 requires inventory to be subsequently measured using the lower of cost and net realizable value, thereby eliminating the market value approach. Net realizable value is defined as the “estimated selling prices in the ordinary course of business, less reasonably predictable costs of completion, disposal and transportation.” ASU 2015-11 is effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016 and is applied prospectively. We adopted ASU 2015-11 on January 1, 2017, and the standard did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.
In August 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-15, Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entity's Ability to Continue as a Going Concern, which explicitly requires management to assess an entity's ability to continue as a going concern, and to provide related footnote disclosures in certain circumstances. Management will be required to assess, in each interim and annual period, if there is substantial doubt of an entity's ability to continue as a going concern as evidenced by relevant known or knowable conditions including an entity's ability to meet its future obligations. Management will be required to provide disclosures regardless of whether substantial doubt is alleviated by management's plans. We adopted this standard effective December 31, 2016 and it did not have an impact on our required disclosures. Management prepared a memorandum, which concluded that the Company was a going concern and that no additional disclosures were required.
In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), that requires an entity to recognize the amount of revenue to which it expects to be entitled for the transfer of promised goods or services to customers. The new standard will replace most existing revenue recognition guidance in U.S. GAAP when it becomes effective. The new standard will be effective for us beginning January 1, 2018. Early application is not permitted. The new standard permits the use of either the retrospective or cumulative effect transition method. Our preliminary analysis indicates that since the majority of our revenue is settled through payments by credit cards and since we have no future performance obligation after delivery

occurs, revenue recognized under Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") Topic 606 will be very similar to revenue recognized under ASC 605 (Revenue Recognition) and, therefore, little to no change will be required. As we complete our implementation analysis, if any change in accounting is required, we anticipate applying the full retrospective transition approach. Furthermore, we have re-evaluated gross versus net revenue presentation under ASC 605 and, as disclosed in Note 2 - Prior Year Revision, we revised our Consolidated Statements of Operations for an error that was not material for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016. In our evaluation of the new standard, the accounting for gross versus net presentation was also reviewed and the treatment under Topic 606 will be the same as ASC 605. We anticipate that our footnote disclosures will increase, and we are still evaluating the methodology for providing disaggregated revenue disclosures for both annual and interim periods.

2. Prior Year Revision
During 2016, we revised our Consolidated Statement of Operations to reflect the accounting for platform fees paid to third-party websites selling our products. Previously, these fees were presented as a reduction to net revenue when the fees should have been presented as sales and marketing expense. The revision, which we determined is not a material error, had no impact on loss from operations, results of operations, stockholders' equity or cash flows.
The impact on the individual line items of our consolidated financial statements for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 from the adjustment was as follows (in thousands):

We hold money market funds that invest primarily in high-quality, short-term money market instruments, including certificates of deposit, banker’s acceptances, commercial paper and other money market securities. Investments in these funds are not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) or any other government agency.
As of June 30, 2017, we held certificates of deposits, classified as cash equivalents or short-term investments, based on the original term. A certificate of deposit is a time deposit with a fixed term that is commonly offered by banks, thrifts and credit unions. As of June 30, 2017, the certificates of deposit held by us had a term of 365 days or less. All certificates of deposit held by the Company were within the insured limits of the FDIC.

5. Line of Credit
Our loan and security agreement that provided for a revolving credit facility of $6.5 million to fund acquisitions and other general corporate needs expired on June 30, 2017 and was not renewed. At our option, the loan and security agreement incurred interest at either the London Inter Bank Offer Rate +1.75% or the bank’s prime rate +0.75%. Our $1.5 million letter of credit outstanding in connection with our production facility and fulfillment center lease is secured by our existing operating cash as of June 30, 2017. The credit agreement required us to comply with various financial covenants including the maintenance of a 1.5 to 1 liquidity to debt ratio, all of which we were in compliance with at June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016. The letter of credit bears interest at 1.5% per annum and will expire on September 15, 2017.

Included in the stock options outstanding as of June 30, 2017 are 449,816 non-statutory stock options that have both three-year service criteria and vesting contingent on financial performance measures at the end of a three-year performance period ended December 31, 2018. The performance criteria for these awards consist of the following financial measures during the performance period: (i) revenue during each period, (ii) cumulative Adjusted EBITDA and (iii) cumulative free cash flow. Compensation cost associated with these performance-based stock options is recognized using an attribution model and ultimately based on whether satisfaction of the performance criteria is probable. The total compensation cost we recognize

12


under these option awards will be based upon the results of the financial measures. As of June 30, 2017, we have estimated that it is not probable that the performance criteria will be met, and, accordingly, no stock compensation expense for the performance shares has been recorded. At June 30, 2017, we had $0.9 million of unrecognized compensation expense related to the performance awards.
Restricted stock unit activity
We may grant restricted stock units, ("RSUs") to our employees, consultants or outside directors under the provisions of our Amended and Restated 2012 Stock Incentive Plan. The cost of RSUs is determined using the fair value of our common stock on the date of grant. Compensation cost is amortized on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period.

Included in the restricted stock units granted as of June 30, 2017 are 184,026 performance-based restricted stock units ("PSUs") that have both three-year service criteria and vesting contingent on financial performance measures at the end of a three-year performance period ended December 31, 2019. The performance criteria for these awards consist of the following financial measures during the performance period: (i) cumulative Adjusted EBITDA and (ii) cumulative free cash flow. Compensation cost associated with these PSUs will be recognized based on whether satisfaction of the performance criteria is probable. The total compensation cost we recognize under these awards will be based upon the results of the financial measures. As of June 30, 2017, we have estimated that it is not probable that the performance criteria will be met, and, accordingly, no stock compensation expense for the PSUs has been recorded. At June 30, 2017, we had $0.6 million of unrecognized compensation expense related to the PSUs.
Stock-based compensation expense

We estimated the fair value of each option award on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model and the assumptions noted in the following table.  In the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, we calculated volatility using our historical volatility as we had sufficient public trading history.  The expected term of options granted gave consideration to historical exercises, assumed forfeitures when they occur and the options’ contractual term.  For all periods presented, the risk-free rate is based on the rates in effect at the time of grant for zero coupon U.S. Treasury notes with maturities approximately equal to each grant’s expected life, and a dividend yield of zero is applied since we have not historically paid dividends and have no intention to pay dividends in the near future.

7. Stock Repurchase Program
In April 2016, our Board of Directors approved the extension of our existing stock repurchase program that authorized the purchase of up to 20% of the outstanding shares of its common stock or an aggregate of 3.5 million shares of our common stock. Under the stock repurchase program, any stock repurchase could be made through open market and privately negotiated transactions, or as otherwise determined by management, at times and in such amounts as management deemed appropriate and could be made pursuant to one or more Rule 10b5-1 trading plans adopted in accordance with Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"). The timing and amount of stock repurchased under the program depended on a variety of factors including stock price, market conditions, corporate and regulatory requirements (including applicable securities laws and regulations and the rules of the NASDAQ Stock Market), any additional constraints related to material inside information we may have possessed and capital availability. In February 2017, our Board of Directors terminated the stock repurchase program.

8. Net Loss per Share of Common Stock
Basic net loss per share is computed by dividing the net loss attributable to common shares for the period by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period.
Diluted net loss per share attributed to common shares is computed by dividing the net loss attributable to common shares for the period by the weighted average number of common and potential common shares outstanding during the period, if the effect of each class of potential common shares is dilutive. Potential common shares include restricted stock units and incremental shares of common stock issuable upon the exercise of stock options.
The following table sets forth the computation of our basic and diluted net loss per share of common stock (in thousands, except for per share amounts).

10. Related Party Transaction
On September 1, 2015, we sold our EZ Prints business, which provided a suite of enterprise class deployable software products and services focused on private label e-commerce customization services, pursuant to an asset purchase agreement with EZP Holdings. Vincent Sarrecchia, the chief executive officer of EZP Holdings, was previously serving as the interim chief executive officer of the EZ Prints business pursuant to a consulting agreement with the Company. Total consideration for the sale was $0.6 million, of which $0.1 million has been received by the Company and $0.5 million is in the form of a non-interest bearing note receivable which is outstanding at June 30, 2017, and it is due on or before December 31, 2018.

Our Business

We are a leading retailer of personalized products offering a wide variety of expressive gifts and accessories, including t-shirts and apparel, mugs and drinkware and home goods such as custom shower curtains and bed coverings. We conduct most of our business on our primary United States-based domain, CafePress.com and operate CafePress branded websites for the markets in the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia. We also sell CafePress branded products through other online retail partners such as Amazon and Walmart. Our products are customized with expressive designs contributed through a variety of means, including crowd-sourced user generated content, stock art licenses and licensed content relationships with large entertainment companies and brands. Our distinctive items bring our customers' passions to life and connect people to each other.
Our production facility and fulfillment center in Louisville, Kentucky has innovative technology and manufacturing processes that enable us to provide high-quality customized products that are individually built to order. Our proprietary processes enable us to produce a broad range of merchandise efficiently and profitably. We also maintain a diverse network of contract manufacturers that give us the ability to broaden our manufacturing capabilities and produce in certain international locales.
Most of our net revenue is generated from sales of customized products through our e-commerce websites (collectively referred to as "CafePress.com"), associated Retail Partner Channel or Feeds (collectively referred to as "Retail Partner Channel") or through storefronts hosted by CafePress. In addition, we generate revenue from fulfillment services, including print and production services provided to third parties. Customized products include user-designed products as well as products designed by our content owners.
An important revenue driver is customer acquisition, primarily through online marketing efforts, including paid and organic search, email, social, affiliate and an array of other channels, as well as the acquisition efforts of our content owners. As a result, our sales and marketing expense is our largest operating expense.
Our consumers and content owner customers are increasingly accessing e-commerce sites from their mobile devices. This shift to mobile site access presents challenges for us as we cope with shifting traffic patterns, and we have experienced lower conversion rates on traffic from mobile devices. We expect that this shift to mobile site access will continue for the foreseeable future.
Seasonal and cyclical influences impact our business volume. A significant portion of our sales are realized in conjunction with traditional retail holidays with the largest sales volume in the fourth quarter of each calendar year. Our offering of custom gifts for the holidays combined with consumers’ continued shift to online purchasing drive this trend. As a result of seasonality, our revenue in each of the first three quarters of the year are generally substantially lower than our revenue in the fourth quarter of each year, and we expect this to continue for the foreseeable future.

Basis of presentation

Net Revenue
We generate revenue from online transactions through our e-commerce websites and through our partners' websites.
We recognize revenue associated with an order when all revenue recognition criteria have been met. Revenue is recorded at the gross amount when we are the primary obligor in a transaction, are subject to inventory and credit risk, have latitude in establishing prices and selecting suppliers or have most of these indicators. For transactions where we act as principal and record revenue on a gross basis, applicable royalty payments to our content owners are recorded in cost of net revenue.

17


Cost of Net Revenue
Cost of net revenue includes materials, labor, royalties and fixed overhead costs related to our manufacturing facilities, as well as outbound shipping and handling costs. The cost of materials may vary based on revenue as well as the price we are able to negotiate. Shipping fluctuates with volume as well as the method of shipping and fuel surcharges. Labor varies primarily by volume and product mix, and to a lesser extent, based on whether the employee is an hourly or a salary employee. We rely on temporary employees to augment our permanent staff particularly during periods of peak demand. Our royalty expense is comprised of fees we pay to our content owners for the use of their content on our products. Additionally, we pay commissions to shopkeepers for the use of their content on our products. Such fees vary based primarily on sales channel and volume. Royalty-based obligations and commissions are expensed to cost of net revenue at the contractual rate for the relevant product sales.
Operating Expense
Operating expense consist of sales and marketing, technology and development and general and administrative expense.
Sales and Marketing
Sales and marketing expense consists primarily of customer acquisition costs, personnel costs and costs related to customer support, order processing, third-party platform fees and other marketing activities. Customer acquisition, customer support, third-party platform fees and third-party payment processor and credit card fees are variable and historically have represented the majority of our overall sales and marketing expense.
Our customer acquisition costs consist of various online media programs, such as paid search engine marketing, email, display advertising and affiliate channels. We believe this expense is a key lever that we can use within our business as we adjust volumes to our target return on investment. We expect to continue to invest in sales and marketing expense in the foreseeable future to fund new customer acquisition, increase focus on driving repeat customer purchases and build our brand.
Technology and Development
Technology and development expense consists of costs incurred for engineering, network operations and information technology, including personnel expense, as well as the costs incurred to operate our websites. Technology and development costs are expensed as incurred, except for certain costs related to the development of internal use software and website development, which are capitalized and amortized over the estimated useful lives, which is two years.
General and Administrative
General and administrative expense consists of personnel, professional services and facilities costs related to our executive, finance, human resources and legal functions. Professional services consist primarily of outside legal and accounting services. General and administrative expense also include headcount and related costs for operations related to our content usage and fraudulent review personnel.

Results of Operations
During 2016, we revised our Consolidated Statement of Operations to reflect the accounting for platform fees paid to third-party websites selling our products. Previously, these fees were presented as a reduction to net revenue when the fees should have been presented as sales and marketing expense. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 , the net impact of the revision was an increase in net revenue and a corresponding increase to sales and marketing expense of $0.5 million and $0.9 million, respectively. The revision, which we determined is not a material error, had no impact on loss from operations, results of operations, stockholders' equity or cash flows.

Total Number of Orders
Total number of orders represents the number of individual transactions that are shipped during the period. We monitor the total number of orders as a leading indicator of revenue trends. During the three months ended June 30, 2017, the decrease in orders of 3% as compared to the prior year period was primarily the result of organic search business volumes within our CafePress.com domains declining modestly and from the continued competitive online retail environment. The decrease in our CafePress.com orders was partially offset by a 21% increase in Retail Partner Channel orders.


20


Average Order Size
Average order size is calculated as billings for a given period based on shipment date divided by the total number of associated orders in the same period. Due to timing of meeting revenue recognition criteria, billings may not be recognized as revenue until the following period. We closely monitor the average order size as it relates to changes in order volume, product pricing and product mix. For the three months ended June 30, 2017, the decrease in average order size of 9% as compared to the prior year period was primarily due to an increase in sales volume through our Retail Partner Channel, which typically carry a lower average order size. In addition, changes in our product mix and a decrease in shipping prices contributed to the decline in average order size.
Net Revenue
Net revenue decreased $2.5 million, or 12%, for the three months ended June 30, 2017 compared to the same period in 2016. The change in revenue was driven by lower revenue from our CafePress.com domains, which more than offset growth from our Retail Partner Channel. The decline in revenue from CafePress.com of $3.2 million, or 19%, was primarily driven by declines in organic search traffic and conversion rates. In addition, we experienced lower visits and conversion rates through most of our other traffic sources during the second quarter as compared to the prior year. Within our Retail Partner Channel, revenue increased $0.7 million, or 22%, primarily as a result of higher order volumes from our feed partnerships driven by the continued merchandising expansion of our catalog.
Cost of Net Revenue
Cost of net revenue decreased $0.8 million, or 7%, for the three months ended June 30, 2017 compared to the same period in 2016. Cost of net revenue was 60.9%, as a percentage of net revenue, for the three months ended June 30, 2017, compared to 57.2% in the same period in 2016. The cost of order shipping increased as a percentage of net revenue by approximately 1.9 percentage points, which was primarily attributed to an increase in the number of shipments through our Retail Partner Channel. In addition, the cost of materials increased as a percentage of net revenue by approximately 1.7 percentage points primarily as a result of the changes in our product mix. Finally, labor costs as a percentage of net revenue also increased by 0.9 percentage points as the decline in revenue more than offset labor efficiencies in our plant operations. Plant overhead costs, including depreciation and amortization, declined as a percentage of net revenue by approximately 0.9 percentage points primarily driven by a reduction in our plant footprint. On a per unit basis, total cost of net revenue was $10.67, which is approximately 2% higher than the prior year. The 9% decline in average order size also negatively impacted our cost of net revenue as a percentage of net revenue.
Sales and Marketing
Sales and marketing expense remained relatively unchanged for the three months ended June 30, 2017 compared to the same period in 2016. Sales and marketing expense was 26.8% of net revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2017 compared to 23.6% for the same period in 2016. Sales and marketing expense consisted of $0.3 million of lower fixed costs and $0.3 million of higher variable costs. Lower fixed costs were primarily driven by reductions in personnel-related costs associated with the closure of our California office. Variable costs increased due to higher paid search and other online advertising costs as well as an increase in platform fees related to higher Retail Partner Channel revenue.
Technology and Development
Technology and development expense decreased $0.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017 as compared to the same period in 2016. Technology and development expense was 17.3% of net revenue in the three months ended June 30, 2017 compared to 16.3% in the same period in 2016. Personnel-related and consulting costs declined by $0.4 million primarily from the closure of our California office. Partially offsetting this decline was an increase of $0.2 million in depreciation expense.
General and Administrative
General and administrative expense decreased $0.7 million, or 23%, for the three months ended June 30, 2017 compared to the same period in 2016. General and administrative expense was 13.1% of net revenue in the three months ended June 30, 2017 compared to 15.0% for the same period of 2016. Personnel-related costs decreased $0.3 million, partially driven by the closure of our California office as well as a reduction in bonus expense based upon our financial performance. In addition, professional service expense decreased $0.4 million primarily due to a reduction in legal fees. Finally, rent expense decreased $0.1 million from the closure of our California office. These decreases were partially offset by a $0.1 million increase in stock-based compensation expense.

21



Impairment Charges
Impairment charges decreased $20.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017 as compared to the same period in 2016 as the prior year expense consisted of a non-cash charge related to the impairment of goodwill.
Provision (Benefit) for Income Taxes
We recorded a $0.4 million benefit for income taxes for the three months ended June 30, 2016. Our effective tax rate was a 1.7% benefit for the three months ended June 30, 2016. For the three months ended June 30, 2016, the effective tax rate was different than our statutory rate primarily due to the net loss from continuing operations while maintaining a valuation allowance against substantially all of our deferred tax assets and the tax impact of the goodwill impairment.

Net Revenue
Net revenue decreased $2.7 million, or 7% in the six months ended June 30, 2017 compared to the same period in 2016. The change in revenue was driven by lower revenue from our CafePress.com domains, which more than offset growth from our Retail Partner Channel. The decline in revenue from CafePress.com of $4.9 million, or 15%, was primarily driven by declines in organic search traffic. In addition, we experienced lower visits and conversion rates through most of our other traffic sources during the first six months as compared to the prior year. Furthermore, there was one less sale day during the six months ended June 30, 2017, and we experienced declines in political merchandise as 2016 benefited from the Presidential election cycle. Within our Retail Partner Channel, revenue increased $2.2 million, or 34%, primarily as a result of higher order volumes from our feeds partnership driven by the continued merchandising expansion of our catalog.
Cost of Net Revenue
Cost of net revenue decreased $0.1 million, or 0%, in the six months ended June 30, 2017 compared to the same period in 2016. As a percentage of net revenue, cost of net revenue was 61.4% in the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 57.4% in the same period in 2016. The cost of order shipping increased as a percentage of net revenue by approximately 2.4 percentage points, which was primarily attributed to an increase in total orders and an increase in the number of shipments through our Retail Partner Channel. In addition, the cost of materials increased as a percentage of net revenue by approximately 1.7 percentage points primarily as a result of the changes in our product mix. Content commission costs also increased as a percentage of net revenue by approximately 0.5 percentage points. During the prior year, we established a commission forfeiture policy for inactive shopkeepers that resulted in a one-time reduction in commission expense of $0.4 million. Finally, labor costs as a percentage of net revenue also increased by 0.2 percentage points as the decline in revenue more than offset labor efficiencies in our plant operations. Plant overhead costs, including depreciation and amortization, declined as a percentage of net revenue by approximately 0.8 percentage points primarily driven by a reduction in our plant footprint. On a per unit basis, excluding the impact of the one-time reduction in commission expense in 2016, total cost of net revenue was $10.71 and remains unchanged from the prior year. The 9% decline in average order size also negatively impacted our cost of net revenue as a percentage of net revenue.
 
Sales and Marketing
Sales and marketing expense decreased $0.6 million, or 7%, in the six months ended June 30, 2017 compared to the same period in 2016. Sales and marketing expense was 25.4% of net revenue in the six months ended June 30, 2017 compared to 25.3% in the same period in 2016. The decrease in absolute dollars in sales and marketing expense consisted of a $0.8 million decline in fixed expenses, partially offset by a $0.2 million increase in variable expenses. Lower fixed costs were primarily driven by reductions in personnel-related costs associated with the closure of our California office as well as expense reductions from outside agencies. The increase in variable costs was primarily driven by an increase in paid search advertising as well as platform fees related to higher Retail Partner Channel revenue.
Technology and Development
Technology and development expense decreased $0.4 million, or 7%, in the six months ended June 30, 2017 compared to the same period in 2016. Technology and development expense was 16.8% of net revenue in the six months ended June 30, 2017 compared to 16.7% in the same period in 2016. Personnel-related and consulting costs decreased by $0.7 million associated with the closure of our California office. Partially offsetting this decline was an increase of $0.3 million in software license and depreciation expense.


24


General and Administrative
General and administrative expense decreased $0.4 million, or 7%, in the six months ended June 30, 2017 compared to the same period in 2016. General and administrative expense was 14.6% of net revenue in each of the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016. Professional service expense decreased $0.4 million primarily from a reduction in legal fees. In addition, rent expense decreased by $0.1 million from the closure of our California office. These decreases were partially offset by a $0.1 million increase in personnel-related costs primarily due to higher stock-based compensation expense.
Impairment Charges
Impairment charges decreased $20.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017 as compared to the same period in 2016 as the prior year expense consisted of a non-cash charge related to the impairment of goodwill.
Provision (Benefit) for Income Taxes
We recorded a $0.4 million benefit for income taxes for the six months ended June 30, 2016. Our effective tax rate was a 1.5% benefit for the six months ended June 30, 2016. For the six months ended June 30, 2016, the effective tax rate was different than our statutory rate primarily due to the net loss from continuing operations while maintaining a valuation allowance against substantially all of our deferred tax assets and the tax impact of the goodwill impairment.

Total assets decreased $15.5 million driven primarily by a reduction in current assets due to the utilization of cash and short-term investments for the payment of production, advertising, royalty and commission liabilities related to retail holiday activity during the fourth quarter of 2016 and reductions in accounts receivable and inventory related to the seasonality of our business.

Total liabilities decreased $9.8 million driven by the payment of the liabilities as discussed above.

Total stockholders' equity decreased by $5.7 million driven by $6.5 million of net loss and $0.1 million from the repurchases of our common stock partially offset by $0.9 million in stock-based compensation expense.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
As of June 30, 2017, we had cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments totaling $30.4 million.

Cash flows from operating activities

25


Our primary source of cash from operating activities is cash collections from our customers and partners. The substantial majority of our net revenue is generated from credit card transactions and credit card accounts receivable and are typically settled within one to five business days. Our primary uses of cash for operating activities are for settlement of accounts payable to vendors and personnel-related expenditures. Our quarterly cash flows from operations are impacted by the seasonality of our business. We generate a significant portion of our cash flow from operations in the fourth quarter, and cash flows in the first three to nine months have generally been negative due to the timing of settlements of accounts payable and accrued liabilities related to our fourth quarter holiday business, and to a lesser extent, operating losses. We expect that cash provided by operating activities may fluctuate in future periods due to several factors, including volatility in our operating results, seasonality, accounts receivable collections performance, inventory and supply chain management, and the timing and amount of personnel-related payments.
Cash used in operating activities decreased $0.2 million primarily due to a decrease in our business insurance renewal payments that occurred in June and an increase in collections of cash related to credit card settlements during 2017 as compared to the prior year partially offset by an increase in payments related to the satisfaction of accounts payable and accrued liabilities related to the 2016 peak season as compared to the prior year.
Cash flows from investing activities
Cash provided by investing activities increased $11.5 million driven by an increase in the net sale of short-term investments. During the second quarter of 2017, as certificates of deposits matured, we did not reinvest the proceeds as we are in the process of updating our investment policy.
Cash flows from financing activities
Cash used in financing activities decreased $0.4 million as we repurchased less stock under our stock repurchase program compared to the prior year. During the first quarter of 2017, we terminated the stock repurchase program.
Credit Facility and Indebtedness
Our loan and security agreement that provided for a revolving credit facility of $6.5 million to fund acquisitions, share repurchases and other general corporate needs expired on June 30, 2017 and was not renewed. At our option, the loan and security agreement incurred interest at either the London Inter Bank Offer Rate +1.75% or the bank’s prime rate +0.75%. Our $1.5 million letter of credit outstanding in connection with our production facility and fulfillment center is secured by our existing operating cash. The credit agreement required us to comply with various financial covenants including the maintenance of a 1.5 to 1 liquidity to debt ratio, all of which we were in compliance with at June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016. If we require additional capital resources to grow our business or to acquire complementary technologies and businesses at any time in the future, we may seek to sell additional equity or raise funds through debt financing or other sources. The sale of additional equity could result in additional dilution to our stockholders. If we raise additional funds by obtaining loans from third parties, the terms of those financing arrangements may include negative covenants or other restrictions on our business that could impair our operating flexibility, and would also require us to incur interest expense. We can provide no assurance that additional financing will be available at all or, if available, that we would be able to obtain financing on terms favorable to us.
In April 2016, our Board of Directors approved the extension of our existing stock repurchase program that authorized the purchase of up to 20% of the outstanding shares of our common stock or an aggregate of 3.5 million shares of our common stock. As of June 30, 2017, we had used $5.3 million of excess cash to repurchase 1,266,028 shares of our common stock. In February 2017, our Board of Directors terminated the repurchase program.
We anticipate that our current cash and cash equivalent balances and cash generated from operations will be sufficient to meet our strategic and working capital requirements for at least the next twelve months.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Regulation G, conditions for use of non-generally accepted accounting principles, or Non-GAAP, financial measures and other SEC regulations define and prescribe the conditions for use of certain Non-GAAP financial information. We closely monitor Adjusted EBITDA which meets the definition of a Non-GAAP financial measure. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) from continuing operations less interest and other (income) expense, provision for (benefit from) income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, acquisition-related costs, restructuring costs and impairment charges.

26


We use Adjusted EBITDA as a key performance measure because we believe it facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period by excluding potential differences caused by variations in capital structures (affecting net interest expense), tax positions (such as the impact on periods of changes in effective tax rates or fluctuations in permanent differences or discrete quarterly items), the impact of depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, acquisition-related costs, restructuring costs and impairment charges. Because Adjusted EBITDA facilitates internal comparisons of our historical operating performance on a more consistent basis, we also use Adjusted EBITDA for business planning purposes and to incentivize and compensate our management personnel.
Our use of Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider this measure in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP as the excluded items may have significant effects on our operating results and financial condition. When evaluating our performance, you should consider Adjusted EBITDA alongside other financial performance measures, including various cash flow metrics, net income (loss) and our other GAAP results. The following shows the trend of Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net revenue, for each of the periods indicated:

Cash Contribution Margin
Cash contribution margin (a non-GAAP financial measure that we reconcile to “Gross profit” in our consolidated statements of operations) consists of gross profit plus stock-based compensation and depreciation and amortization included in cost of net revenue less variable sales and marketing expense. In addition, variable sales and marketing expense includes platform fees paid to third-party websites selling our products. Previously, these fees were presented as a reduction to net revenue when the fees should have been presented as sales and marketing expense. Finally, our definition of variable sales and marketing expense was updated to include fees we pay third parties to manage our keyword advertising spend. The prior year amounts were reclassified to conform to this presentation.
When viewed together with our GAAP results, we believe cash contribution margin provides management and users of the financial statements information about our ability to cover our operating costs, such as Technology and Development and General and Administrative expense. Cash contribution margin is used in addition to and in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP and should not be relied upon to the exclusion of GAAP financial measures. You should review our financial statements and publicly-filed reports in their entirety and not rely on any single financial measure. One material limitation associated with the use of cash contribution margin is that it is an incomplete measure of profitability as it does not

include all operating expense or non-operating income and expense. Management compensates for these limitations when using this measure by looking at other GAAP measures such as operating income (loss) and net income (loss).

Off-balance sheet arrangements
We do not have any relationships with unconsolidated entities or financial partnerships, such as entities often referred to as structured finance or special purpose entities, which would have been established for the purpose of facilitating off-balance sheet arrangements or other contractually narrow or limited purposes. In addition, we do not have any undisclosed borrowings or debt and we have not entered into any synthetic leases. Therefore, we are not currently exposed to any financing, liquidity, market or credit risk that could arise if we had engaged in such relationships.

ITEM 3.
QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK
We are exposed to market risks in the ordinary course of our business. These risks primarily include risk related to interest rate, foreign currency exchange rate sensitivities and inflation.
Interest rate sensitivity
We had cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments of $30.4 million and $43.8 million as of June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively. These amounts were held primarily in cash deposits, money market funds and certificates of deposit. Our primary exposure to market risk is interest income sensitivity, which is affected by changes in the general level of the interest rates in the United States. Due to the short-term nature of these instruments, a change in market interest rates would not be expected to have a material impact on our financial condition or our results of operations.
Foreign currency exchange rate sensitivity
Our sales to international customers are denominated in multiple currencies, including the United States dollar, the British Pound, the Euro, the Canadian dollar and the Australian dollar. As the substantial majority of our sales are charged to credit cards, accounts receivables are generally settled in short time duration and accordingly, we have limited exposure to foreign currency exchange rates on our accounts receivable. To date, our operating costs have been denominated primarily in United States dollars. As a result of our limited exposure to foreign currency exchange rates, we do not currently enter into foreign currency hedging transactions. If our international operations increase, our exposure to foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations may increase.
Inflation Risk
We do not believe that inflation has had a material effect on our business, financial condition or results of operations. If our costs were to become subject to significant inflationary pressures, we may not be able to fully offset such higher costs through price increases. Our inability or failure to do so could harm our business, financial condition and results of operations.


ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
We maintain “disclosure controls and procedures” as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Exchange Act, that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in Securities and Exchange Commission rules and forms, and is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. In designing and evaluating our disclosure controls and procedures, management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance of achieving their objectives. Our disclosure controls and procedures have been designed to meet reasonable assurance standards. Additionally, our management necessarily was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures. The design of any disclosure controls and procedures is also based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions.
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
As of June 30, 2017, we carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act). Based upon that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer (our principal executive officer) and Chief Financial Officer (our principal financial officer) have concluded that, as of June 30, 2017, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level.
Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting
There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) during the fiscal period covered by this report that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION

ITEM 1.
LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
We may be subject to lawsuits, claims and proceedings incident to the ordinary course of business, particularly with respect to content that appears on our website. Any claims against us, whether material, meritorious or not, could be time consuming, result in costly litigation, require significant amounts of legal resources, management time and result in the diversion of significant operational resources. The results of these lawsuits, claims and proceedings cannot be predicted with certainty. In addition to the matters described below, we are also involved in the ordinary routine litigation matters which are incidental to our business.
On November 3, 2016, The Ohio State University ("Ohio State") filed a Complaint against the Company for Trademark Infringement, Unfair Competition, Passing Off, Counterfeiting and Violation of Right of Publicity styled The Ohio State University versus CafePress, Inc. (Civil Action No. 2:16-cv-1052) (the "Complaint") in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio. The Complaint alleges that the Company participated in trademark infringement, unfair competition, passing off and counterfeiting under the Lanham Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1114 and § 1125(a), by unlawfully appropriating Ohio State's registered and common law trademarks, and violated the rights of publicity assigned to Ohio State by head football coach Urban F. Meyer ("Meyer") under O.R.C. § 2741, et. seq., in the Company's design, manufacture, promotion, advertising, sale and shipping of allegedly counterfeit and infringing t-shirts and other merchandise online. Ohio State seeks damages of $1,000,000 per counterfeit mark per type of product sold, offered for sale, or distributed, in accordance with 15 U.S.C. § 1117. The Company filed its Answer to the Complaint on April 10, 2017, and pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 16(a)(5) and (c)(2), Ohio State and the Company appeared for a settlement conference on May 2, 2017. On May 4, 2017, the parties filed a Joint Motion to Stay Proceeding through August 30, 2017 (the "Joint Motion to Stay"). while the parties continued settlement negotiations. On May 5, 2017, the Joint Motion to Stay was granted. We do not expect this matter to have a material impact on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.


ITEM 1A.    RISK FACTORS
There have been no material changes from the risk factors disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016.
