On March 18, 2019, Overstock.com, Inc. (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing the Company’s financial results for the three months and twelve months ended December 31, 2018. A copy of the press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1.
The information in this Current Report on Form 8-K and in the exhibit is being furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section, nor shall it be incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as may expressly be set forth in any such filing by specific reference.
Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits
The following exhibit is furnished with this report:
This press release and the March 18, 2019 conference call and webcast to discuss our financial results may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Such forward-looking statements include all statements other than statements of historical fact, including forecasts of trends. Additionally, certain statements included herein, including our statements regarding commitments are forward-looking statements that do not offer any guarantees, personal or otherwise. You should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date they were made. We undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statements as a result of any new information, future developments or otherwise. Forward-looking statements are inherently difficult to predict. Accordingly, actual results could differ materially for a variety of reasons, including, but not limited to, the amount and timing of our capital expenditures, the significant increases in our marketing expenditures in the first half of 2018 and the subsequent reduction of those expenditures, the results of our ongoing review of strategic initiatives including the possible sale of our e-commerce business, initiatives to improve the performance of our retail business and the recent reduction in our workforce, adverse tax, regulatory or legal developments, competition, and any inability to achieve profitability, generate positive cash flow from operations, raise capital, or borrow funds on acceptable terms. Other risks and uncertainties include, among others, the inherent risks associated with the businesses that Medici Ventures, Inc. ("Medici Ventures") and tZERO Group, Inc. ("tZERO") are pursuing, including whether tZERO's joint venture with Box Digital Markets, LLC will be able to achieve its objectives, the regulatory, technical, operational and other obstacles tZERO faces in each of its initiatives, the effects of key business personnel moving from our retail business to our Medici Ventures and tZERO businesses or otherwise leaving, our continually evolving business model, difficulties we may have with our infrastructure, our fulfillment partners or our payment processors, including cyber-attacks or data breaches affecting us or any of them, and difficulties we may have with our search engine optimization results. More information about factors that could potentially affect our financial results is included in our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 18, 2019, and in our subsequent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Form 10-K and our subsequent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission identify important factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those contained in or contemplated by our projections, estimates and other forward-looking statements.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
