As a result, NPS today is at the highest level in several years, customers have been buying more inventory from us, and customer retention has markedly improved YOY. We believe we are well positioned to re-ignite our marketing and customer acquisition engine to drive growth and FCF breakeven in fiscal 2024.”

We expect these actions to result in free cash flow breakeven for fiscal year 2024. Importantly, we believe that the cost and capital expenditure decisions that are important components of our free cash flow breakeven plan have already been made. We have conviction that Rent the Runway is poised to exit fiscal year 2024 as a sustainable, growing, and free cash flow breakeven business.”
