Gross Merchandise Value (GMV) of $4.9 billion, a forecasted increase of approximately 20% to 22% year-on-year from the company’s full-year 2022 outlook. This is expected to be driven by growth of the underlying business of 8%-10% and GMV from signed partnerships of approximately $500 million.

Adjusted EBITDA Margin of 1% to 3%, an increase from the company’s outlook of (3)% to (5)% in 2022, expected to be driven by improved Gross Profit and Order Contribution margins in addition to operating cost efficiencies of approximately $85 million. This is expected to be partially offset by $170 million costs to support new partnerships.

Farfetch forecasts to deliver GMV of approximately $10 billion across its business pillars for full-year 2025, out of which:

The company’s Brand Platform business pillar (Brand Platform) is forecasted to represent $1.5 billion, driven by 5% to 10% growth of the underlying business and contribution from the signed partnership with Reebok.

Fulfilment Revenue is forecasted to represent $0.9 billion.

Adjusted Revenue is forecasted to be approximately $3.5 billion, out of which:

Marketplaces is forecasted to represent $1.7 billion, mainly driven by third-party revenue growth.
