SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

On January 25, 2021, Mytheresa successfully closed its initial public offering (“IPO”) of 17,994,117 American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”), representing 17,994,117 ordinary shares, including the full exercise by the underwriters of their option to purchase 2,347,058 additional ADSs, representing 2,347,058 ordinary shares, at a public offering price of $26.00 per ADS. The Company sold 14,233,823 ADSs in the offering and its sole shareholder sold 3,760,294 ADSs in the offering, including 586,764 ADSs sold by the Company and 1,760,294 ADSs sold by the sole shareholder pursuant to the exercise in full of the underwriters’ option to purchase additional ADSs.

On January 26, 2021, Mytheresa exercised the option to repay the Fixed Rate Shareholder Loans (principal plus outstanding interest) with parts of the proceeds of our IPO, which resulted in cash outflows of €170.0 million ($ 206.6 million). In addition, MGG and its subsidiaries fully repaid any borrowings under the revolving credit facilities.

BUSINESS OUTLOOK

For the full fiscal year ending June 30, 2021, some of the beneficial performance tailwinds from COVID may be expected to slow down in Q3 and especially in Q4 as stores reopen. Nevertheless, we expect strong results for the full fiscal year in line with long-term expectations of net sales growth of low to mid-twenties and stable Adjusted EBITDA margins:

· Net sales in the range of €565 million to €580 million, representing 26% to 29% growth
· Adjusted EBITDA in the range of €45 million to €48 million, representing 27% to 36% growth
· Adjusted EBITDA Margin of 8.0% to 8.3%

ABOUT NON-IFRS FINANCIAL MEASURES

We review a number of operating and financial metrics, including the following business and non-IFRS metrics, to evaluate our business, measure our performance, identify trends affecting our business, formulate business plans and make strategic decisions. We present Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Operating Income, and Adjusted Net Income because they are frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in our industry. Further, we believe these measures are helpful in highlighting trends in our operating results, because they exclude the impact of items that are outside the control of management or not reflective of our ongoing operations and performance. Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Operating Income, and Adjusted Net Income have limitations, because they exclude certain types of expenses. Furthermore, other companies in our industry may calculate similarly titled measures differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures. We use Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Operating Income, and Adjusted Net Income as supplemental information only. You are encouraged to evaluate each adjustment and the reasons we consider it appropriate for supplemental analysis.

Our non-IFRS financial measures include:

· Adjusted EBITDA is a non-IFRS financial measure that we calculate as net income before finance expense (net), taxes, and depreciation and amortization, adjusted to exclude U.S. sales tax expenditures temporarily borne by us through the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, IPO preparation and transaction costs and share-based compensation expenses.
· Adjusted Operating Income is a non-IFRS financial measure that we calculate as operating income, adjusted to exclude U.S. sales tax expenditures temporarily borne by us through the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, any IPO preparation and transaction costs and share-based compensation expenses.
· Adjusted Net Income is a non-IFRS financial measure that we calculate as net income, adjusted to exclude U.S. sales tax expenditures temporarily borne by us, finance expenses on our Shareholder Loans, IPO preparation and transaction costs, share-based compensation expenses and related income tax effects.
