Chegg, Inc. and Ingram Content Group Inc. Form Strategic Alliance

Chegg, The Student Hub announced a significant strategic alliance with Ingram Content Group Inc. Key elements of the alliance include Chegg continuing to own the customer experience, including catalog, end-user pricing, marketing, customer support, ongoing student relationships and data. In addition, Chegg and its brand partners will continue to deliver surprise and delight to students with the products found inside of Chegg-branded boxes, which Ingram will use to fulfill orders. Ingram will be responsible for the sourcing, warehousing, fulfillment, shipping and rental returns of their inventory and Chegg will receive a commission for textbooks rented or sold through its web and mobile sites, recording such commissions as digital revenue. Chegg has already begun transferring ownership of a combination of current and new inventory to Ingram in anticipation of textbook volume for the upcoming fall semester. Chegg expects this will result in a substantial reduction in net cash expenditures on textbooks in Third Quarter 2014 and in the second half of 2014. Chegg and Ingram expect to continue migrating inventory ownership over the next several academic semesters, further reducing Chegg's use of cash on print textbooks. Chegg expects this to strengthen its balance sheet and cash flow.

Chegg Announces Partnership with Ingram Content Group to Warehouse and Handle the Millions of Textbooks

Chegg announced a new partnership with Ingram Content Group to warehouse and handle the millions of textbooks that college students order and return to the Santa Clara company, ridding itself of one of a labor-intensive function that required a great deal of cash changing hands, but also costing it a big chunk of its revenue stream. Chegg will receive 20% of the revenues from what was its main function as a company, though those sales will now be recorded as "digital" instead of "print" revenues, making them more attractive to investors who believe print to be a dying industry.
