Here is what Miller Value Partners has to say about Farfetch Limited in their Q4 2020 investor letter:

Farfetch Ltd. (FTCH) continued its climb in the quarter, returning 152.7%. The company really took off following the announcement of a landmark global partnership with Alibaba, Richemont & Artemis. The deal gives FTCH access to Alibaba’s platform and its 757M customers while also starting new relationships with Richemont’s brands. The agreement will provide an infusion of $1.15B from their new partners to help them grow out the platform in China and beyond and aligning the incentives of all parties. Later in the quarter, Alibaba’s President Michael Evans joined the board of directors. The company also announced another strong earnings report. For the 3rd quarter, the company posted revenue of $437.7M versus consensus estimates of $369.8M. Gross Margins were above expectations at 48% against estimates of 45%. The result was the company had an Earnings Before Income, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization (EBITDA) loss of just $10M, versus expectations for a $22M EBITDA loss in the quarter. Gross merchandise value also beat expectations coming in up 60% versus expectations for 40-45%. The company guided to EBITDA profitability in the fourth quarter ahead of expectations.”
