While many consumers favor quicker ship times over value, we believe ZU needs to maintain a 1% market share, in order to realize upside in the shares. Zulily current trades at 2.6x '16E gross profit, a 29% discount vs. eCommerce peers at 3.7x. We view the shares achieving a peer multiple if current initiatives take shape in late 2015."
