Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.
The prospective information provided below regarding our future performance represents our managements estimates as of the date of this report only. This information, which includes forward-looking statements, has been prepared by our management and is qualified by, and subject to, the assumptions, risks and uncertainties discussed in this report that may cause actual results to differ materially. See Cautionary Statement on Forward-Looking Statements below and Risk Factors in our Quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, as such factors may be updated from time to time in our other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC).
Our inventory strategy is designed to take advantage of what we believe are structural shifts in consumer behavior and increased demand for the Vroom model, and we have continued to scale our inventory levels in the third quarter of 2020. As higher inventory levels lead to higher conversion, we have experienced continued growth in ecommerce units sold. As well, the increase in demand combined with continuing supply constraints in the broader market has led to better than expected improvements in our gross profit per unit. As of the date of this report, we have seen our results continue to improve after the disruptions in the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. Accordingly, we are updating the guidance we provided with our second quarter earnings release for Q3 2020 as follows:
Ecommerce unit sales of 8,700 8,900 (from 8,500 8,800), average total revenue per unit of $24,500 (from $23,500) and average gross profit per unit of $1,850 $1,950 (from $1,600 $1,700).
TDA unit sales of 1,400 1,600 (unchanged), average total revenue per unit of $24,500 (from $23,500) and average gross profit per unit of $1,700 $1,800 (from $1,000 $1,100).
Wholesale unit sales of 4,500 5,000 (from 3,500 4,500), average total revenue per unit of $10,000 (unchanged) and average gross profit per unit of $500 $600 (from $100 $200).
Total revenue of $290 million $310 million (from $268 million $290 million).
Total gross profit of $21 million $23 million (from $16 million $18 million).
Net loss per share of $(0.40) $(0.36) (from $(0.42) $(0.37)).
