Outbrain Announces Second Quarter 2022 Results

NEW YORK, Aug. 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Outbrain Inc. (Nasdaq: OB), a leading recommendation platform for the open web, announced today financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2022.

“We are pleased to report that despite worsening macroeconomic headwinds, we delivered on the guidance we provided for the second quarter of 2022,” said David Kostman, Outbrain’s Co-CEO. “We continued to gain significant market share globally with wins of top premium publishers throughout 2022. We expect that this increased market share, together with our investments in technology and product, will position us well for strong growth when the advertising market recovers. Nevertheless, in view of market softness and economic uncertainty, we continued to adjust our cost structure with focus on profitability.”

“Product innovation, quality, and our deep partnerships remain the cornerstones of our business and are key differentiators, especially when the macro environment remains challenging,” added Yaron Galai, Outbrain’s Co-Founder and Co-CEO. “We recognize the near-term environment will remain volatile, however, during these times, we will continue to focus on the long term and make the right strategic investments in our future product and supply partnerships.”

Second Quarter 2022 Highlights:

  • Revenue increased to $250.9 million, compared to $247.2 million. Revenue increased 6% on a constant currency basis, excluding net unfavorable foreign currency effects of approximately $11.5 million. The reported increase was driven by approximately $25.8 million, or 10% of growth from new media partners1, offset by a decrease of approximately $22.2 million due to net revenue retention of 91% on existing media partners. We have experienced lower yields mainly due to weaker demand on our platform, primarily as a result of the current macroeconomic conditions and the impact on advertising spend.
  • Gross profit decreased 18% year over year to $48.7 million, compared to $59.1 million. Gross profit decreased 14% on a constant currency basis, excluding net unfavorable foreign currency effects of approximately $1.9 million.
  • Ex-TAC gross profit decreased 11% year over year to $59.3 million, compared to $66.8 million. Ex-TAC gross profit decreased 8% on a constant currency basis, excluding net unfavorable foreign currency effects of approximately $1.9 million.
  • Net loss of $10.3 million compared to net income of $15.2 million in the prior year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $5.9 million compared to $24.6 million in the prior year, reflecting lower Ex-TAC gross profit and increased operating expenses. Adjusted EBITDA included net favorable foreign currency effects of approximately $0.7 million.
  • We increased our cost saving initiatives to address the current macroeconomic environment, focusing on efficiencies and cost reduction opportunities. We expect that these actions will result in cost savings of an additional $12 million in the second half of 2022 as compared with our prior guidance.
  • Cash from operating activities was $1.5 million in the period; free cash flow was a use of cash of $8.9 million, reflecting our planned increase in capital expenditures. Cash and cash equivalents were $391.4 million as of June 30, 2022.

As of July 31, 2022, we repurchased 2,339,374 shares for a total of $12.6 million, including commissions, under our $30 million stock repurchase program, with remaining availability under the program of $17.5 million.

2022 Full Year and Third Quarter Guidance

The following forward-looking statements reflect our expectations for 2022.

For the full year ended December 31, 2022, we expect:

  • Ex-TAC gross profit of at least $228 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA of at least $18 million

For the third quarter ending September 30, 2022, we expect:

  • Ex-TAC gross profit of $48 million to $52 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA of breakeven to $(4) million

The above measures are forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures for which a reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is not available without unreasonable efforts. See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below. In addition, our guidance is subject to risks and uncertainties, as outlined below in this release.

________________________________

1 We calculate media partner net revenue retention at the end of each quarter by starting with revenue generated on media partners’ properties in the same period in the prior year, “Prior Period Retention Revenue.” We then calculate the revenue generated on these same media partners’ properties in the current period, “Current Period Retention Revenue.” Current Period Retention Revenue reflects any expansions within the media partner relationships, such as any additional placements or properties on which we extend our recommendations, as well as contraction or attrition. Our media partner net revenue retention in a quarter equals the Current Period Retention Revenue divided by the Prior Period Retention Revenue. These amounts exclude certain revenue adjustments and revenue recognized on a net basis. New media partners are defined as those relationships in which revenue was not generated in the prior year period, except for limited instances where residual revenue was generated on a media partner’s properties. In such instances, the residual revenue would be excluded from net revenue retention above.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to GAAP performance measures, we use the following supplemental non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate our business, measure our performance, identify trends and allocate our resources: Ex-TAC gross profit, Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, adjusted net (loss) income and adjusted diluted EPS. These non-GAAP financial measures are defined and reconciled to the corresponding GAAP measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are subject to significant limitations, including those we identify below. In addition, other companies in our industry may define these measures differently, which may reduce their usefulness as comparative measures. As a result, this information, should be considered as supplemental in nature and is not meant as a substitute for revenue, gross profit, net (loss) income, diluted EPS or cash flows from operating activities presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Because we are a global company, the comparability of our operating results is affected by foreign exchange fluctuations. We calculate constant currency measures and foreign currency impacts by translating the current year’s reported amounts into comparable amounts using prior year’s exchange rates. All constant currency financial information being presented is non-GAAP and should be used as a supplement to our reported operating results. We believe that this information is helpful to our management and investors to assess our operating performance on a comparable basis. However, these measures are not intended to replace amounts presented in accordance with GAAP and may be different from similar measures calculated by other companies.

The Company is also providing third quarter and full year 2022 guidance on a non-GAAP basis. These forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures are calculated based on internal forecasts that omit certain amounts that would be included in GAAP financial measures. The Company has not provided quantitative reconciliations of these forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures because it is unable, without unreasonable effort, to predict with reasonable certainty the occurrence or amount of all excluded items that may arise during the forward-looking period, which can be dependent on future events that may not be reliably predicted. Such excluded items could be material to the reported results individually or in the aggregate.

Ex-TAC Gross Profit

Ex-TAC gross profit is a non-GAAP financial measure. Gross profit is the most comparable GAAP measure. In calculating Ex-TAC gross profit, we add back other cost of revenue to gross profit. Ex-TAC gross profit may fluctuate in the future due to various factors, including, but not limited to, seasonality and changes in the number of media partners and advertisers, advertiser demand or user engagements.

We present Ex-TAC gross profit, as well as Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of Ex-TAC gross profit, because they are key profitability measures used by our management and board of directors to understand and evaluate our operating performance and trends, develop short-and long-term operational plans and make strategic decisions regarding the allocation of capital. Accordingly, we believe that these measures provide information to investors and the market in understanding and evaluating our operating results in the same manner as our management and board of directors. There are limitations on the use of Ex-TAC gross profit in that traffic acquisition cost is a significant component of our total cost of revenue but not the only component and, by definition, Ex-TAC gross profit presented for any period will be higher than gross profit for that period. A potential limitation of this non-GAAP financial measure is that other companies, including companies in our industry, which have a similar business, may define ex-TAC gross profit differently, which may make comparisons difficult. As a result, this information, should be considered as supplemental in nature and is not meant as a substitute for revenue or gross profit presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Adjusted EBITDA

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net (loss) income before charges related to exchange of senior notes upon IPO; interest expense; interest income and other income (expense), net; provision for income taxes; depreciation and amortization; stock-based compensation, and other income or expenses that we do not consider indicative of our core operating performance, including but not limited to, merger and acquisition costs, certain IPO and public company implementation related costs, and regulatory matter costs. We present Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental performance measure because it is a key profitability measure used by our management and board of directors to understand and evaluate our operating performance and trends, develop short-and long-term operational plans and make strategic decisions regarding the allocation of capital, and we believe it facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period.

We believe that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results in the same manner as our management and board of directors. However, our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA is not necessarily comparable to non-GAAP information of other companies. Adjusted EBITDA should be considered as a supplemental measure and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for any measures of our financial performance that are calculated and reported in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted Net (Loss) Income and Adjusted Diluted EPS

Adjusted net (loss) income is a non-GAAP financial measure, which is defined as net (loss) income excluding items that we do not consider indicative of our core operating performance, including but not limited to, charges related to the exchange of senior notes upon IPO, the cumulative incremental stock-based compensation expense impact for awards with an IPO performance condition, merger and acquisition costs, certain IPO related costs, deferred tax asset valuation allowance release, and regulatory matter costs. Adjusted net (loss) income, as defined above, is also presented on a per diluted share basis. We present adjusted net (loss) income and adjusted diluted EPS as supplemental performance measures because we believe they facilitate performance comparisons from period to period. However, adjusted net (loss) income or adjusted diluted EPS should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net (loss) income or diluted earnings per share reported in accordance with GAAP.

Free Cash Flow

Free cash flow is defined as cash flow from operating activities less capital expenditures and capitalized software development costs. Free cash flow is a supplementary measure used by our management and board of directors to evaluate our ability to generate cash and we believe it allows for a more complete analysis of our available cash flows. Free cash flow should be considered as a supplemental measure and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for any measures of our financial performance that are calculated and reported in accordance with GAAP.
