In our Retail business, customer demand increased significantly in the second quarter, particularly in our key home furnishings categories. We have seen a substantial year-over-year increase in our website traffic and number of new customers, and our Retail gross sales grew more than 100% year over year in Q2. Our online-only platform and partner network with thousands of fulfillment centers has enabled us to meet this increase in demand without significant operational disruptions. Our warehouses have remained operational based on our implementation of sound safety measures, including staggered shifts and social distancing. We also are hiring in key areas to support our current and expected growth. We have faced challenges from the sharply increased volume throughout our customer service channels and capacity issues from shipping carriers and some suppliers, including out-of-stock positions on some of our top performing products. We also have faced challenges at tZERO and its subsidiaries, as market volatility has delayed capital raises by potential issuers. Most of our Medici Ventures blockchain companies have seen little disruption, and several are working on solutions to problems arising from the global pandemic. We have evaluated and implemented a phased re-entry plan for our offices while most of our corporate employees continue to work from home without incident. We cannot predict how the COVID-19 pandemic will unfold in the coming months. Nevertheless, the challenges arising from the pandemic have not adversely affected our liquidity, revenues, or capacity to service our debt, nor have these conditions forced us to reduce our capital expenditures.Digital DividendOn May 19, 2020, we completed the distribution of our announced digital dividend (the “Dividend”) payable in shares of our Series A-1 preferred stock. The Dividend was paid out at a ratio of 1:10, so that one share of Series A-1 preferred stock was issued for every ten shares of OSTK common stock, for every ten shares of Series A-1 preferred stock, and for every ten shares of Series B preferred stock held by all holders of such shares as of April 27, 2020, the record date for the Dividend.Earnings Webcast InformationThe company will hold a conference call and webcast to discuss its Q2 2020 financial results on Thursday, July 30, 2020, at 8:30 a.m. ET.

Consolidated Balance Sheets (Unaudited)
(in thousands, except per share data)
Segment Financial InformationThe following table summarizes information about reportable segments and includes a reconciliation to consolidated net income (loss) (in thousands):
Supplemental Operational DataRetail gross merchandise sales (“Retail GMS” or “Retail gross sales”) is calculated as the amount paid by customers for products and shipping, measured at the time of order, before coupons and discounts, without reductions for estimated returns. We believe that GMS provides a useful measure of the overall volume of sales transactions that flow through our online platform in a given period.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures and ReconciliationsWe are providing certain non-GAAP financial measures in this release and related earnings conference call, including Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of total net revenue (“Adjusted EBITDA margin”), Free cash flow, Contribution and Contribution as a percentage of total net revenue (“Contribution margin”). We use these non-GAAP measures internally in analyzing our financial results at both the consolidated and segment level and we believe they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating our ongoing operational performance in the same manner as our management and board of directors. We have provided reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures in this earnings release. These Non-GAAP financial measures should be used in addition to and in conjunction with the results presented in accordance with GAAP and should not be relied upon to the exclusion of GAAP financial measures.Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin are non-GAAP financial measures that are calculated as net income (loss) before depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, interest and other income (expense), provision (benefit) for income taxes, and special items. We believe the exclusion of certain expenses in calculating Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin facilitates operating performance comparisons on a period-to-period basis. Exclusion of items in the non-GAAP presentation should not be construed as an inference that these items are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring.Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure that is calculated as net cash provided by or used in operating activities reduced by expenditures for property and equipment. We believe free cash flow is a useful measure to evaluate the cash impact of the continuing operations of the business including purchases of property and equipment which are a necessary component of our ongoing operations.Contribution and Contribution margin are non-GAAP financial measures that are calculated as gross profit less sales and marketing expense. We believe contribution and contribution margin provide information relevant to our Retail business about our ability to cover our Retail operating costs, such as technology and general and administrative expenses, while reflecting the selling costs we incurred to generate our Retail revenues.The following table reflects the reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss) (in thousands):__________________________________________
(1) — Depreciation and amortization for the six months ended June 30, 2019 includes a $1.4 million adjustment related to finalizing our preliminary purchase price accounting for Mac Warehouse.
(2) — Includes amounts associated with the resolution for and adjustments to various legal contingencies.
