Second Quarter Revenue Totaled $310.2 Million, Representing Year-over-Year Growth of 338% on an As-Reported Basis and Year-over-Year Growth of 63% on a Pro Forma Basis

Strong Top-Line Growth and Operating Leverage Continue to Drive Significant Growth in Earnings and Cash Flow

Synergies Starting to be Realized as the Company's End-to-End Platform Exploits a Vastly Larger Addressable Market Opportunity

AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital Turbine, Inc. (Nasdaq: APPS) announced financial results for the fiscal second quarter ended September 30, 2021. The Company completed the acquisitions of AdColony Holdings AS and Fyber N.V. on April 29 and May 25, 2021, respectively. Specific references made to "pro forma" results in this release provide investors with quarterly results and comparisons as if all acquired businesses were owned for the entirety of the second quarter of fiscal 2021. The Company believes that pro forma results, where applicable, can provide investors with more relevant year-over-year comparisons. The reconciliations between the pro forma and GAAP financial results for the relevant periods are provided in the tables following the Unaudited Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows below.

Recent Financial Highlights:

  • Fiscal second quarter of 2022 revenue totaled $310.2 million, representing a 338% increase year-over-year on an as-reported basis and a 63% increase year-over-year as compared to the comparable pro forma figure for the fiscal second quarter of 2021.

  • GAAP net loss for the fiscal second quarter of 2022, inclusive of a $22.1 million fair value adjustment to the contingent acquisition-related earn-outs, was $5.9 million, or ($0.06) per share, as compared to GAAP net income of $0.4 million, or $0.00 per share for the fiscal second quarter of 2021. Non-GAAP adjusted net income1 for the fiscal second quarter of 2022 was $45.3 million, or $0.44 per share, as compared to Non-GAAP adjusted net income of $14.5 million, or $0.15 per share, in the fiscal second quarter of 2021.

  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA2 for the fiscal second quarter of 2022 was $47.9 million, representing growth of 191% as compared to Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA of $16.5 million in the fiscal second quarter of 2021.

"I am pleased that we delivered record financial results in the second quarter, but even more pleased with how we have strategically laid the foundation to capture a dramatically expanded market opportunity set in future quarters and years," said Bill Stone, CEO. "Our first full quarter reporting as a consolidated entity provided early evidence of the financial benefits from our greater scope and scale. Meanwhile, we are now strategically positioning the Company for continued success in the future with a fully differentiated end-to-end platform. The integration is proceeding ahead of our own initial expectations and has been very well-received by partners and customers across the full spectrum of the platform. Revenue synergies are already materializing ahead of our expectations, even though we are merely at the onset of exploiting our platform's inherent competitive advantages. Execution continues to be our primary focus, as we confidently aspire to realize far greater, more strategic synergies in future quarters."

Mr. Stone concluded, "With respect to our financial performance during the September quarter, we continued to witness strong demand from app publishers and advertisers for our unique set of product offerings across the full range of the platform. Our On-Device Media revenue and our In-App Media revenue each increased more than 60% year-over-year on a pro forma basis. Within the On-Device Media segment, our primary health metric, revenue-per-device ("RPD"), increased more than 50% year-over-year on devices in the U.S., and more than 100% on devices outside of the U.S. during what was an all-time record quarter for the total number of new devices activated globally with our software installed. Scale efficiencies and disciplined expense controls once again enabled us to translate this top-line growth into non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP EPS growth of more than 190% on a year-over-year basis. We expect to continue to demonstrate incremental profitable operating leverage, particularly as we realize considerable additional acquisition-related synergies. In summary, I am more upbeat than ever about the Company's future, as I believe that our 'One DT' platform is ideally positioned to not only adapt to, but will in fact fully benefit from, several key developing trends within our industry, such as the diversification of ad spend into other fully calculable performance-driven options, legislative and regulatory actions designed to foster alternative market opportunities, and the recent wave of ad-tech consolidation which has reduced the number of independent competitors, thereby further differentiating the uniqueness of our strategic market approach."

Fiscal 2022 Second Quarter Financial Results

Total revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2022 was $310.2 million. Total "On-Device Media" revenue, which represents revenue derived from the Company's Application Media and Content Media platform products, increased 73% year-over-year to $129.4 million. Before intercompany eliminations, total "In-App Media" revenue, which represents revenue derived from the Fyber and AdColony businesses, increased 61% year-over-year on a pro forma basis to $187.2 million. Fyber contributed $125.7 million during the quarter, while AdColony contributed $61.5 million during the quarter.

GAAP net loss for the fiscal second quarter of 2022, inclusive of a $22.1 million fair value adjustment to the contingent acquisition-related earn-outs, was $5.9 million, or ($0.06) per share, as compared to GAAP net income from continuing operations of $0.4 million, or $0.00 per share for the second quarter of fiscal 2021. Non-GAAP adjusted net income1 for the second quarter of fiscal 2022 was $45.3 million, or $0.44 per share, as compared to Non-GAAP adjusted net income of $14.5 million, or $0.15 per share, in the second quarter of fiscal 2021.

Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA2 for the second quarter of fiscal 2022 was $47.9 million as compared to Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA of $16.5 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2021. The reconciliations between GAAP and Non-GAAP financial results for all referenced periods are provided in the tables immediately following the Unaudited Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows below.

Business Outlook

Based on information available as of November 2, 2021, the Company currently expects the following for the third quarter of fiscal 2022:

  • Revenue of between $350 million and $355 million

  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA2 of between $53 million and $56 million

  • Non-GAAP adjusted EPS1 of between $0.41 and $0.44, based on approximately 105 million diluted shares outstanding and an effective tax rate of between 15% and 20% on non-GAAP net income

It is not reasonably practicable to provide a business outlook for GAAP net income because the Company cannot reasonably estimate the changes in stock-based compensation expense, which is directly impacted by changes in the Company's stock price, any adjustment to the contingent earn-out provisions, which will continue to be adjusted to fair value through the end of the earn-out periods, or other items that are difficult to predict with precision.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the Company's consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, Digital Turbine uses non-GAAP measures of certain components of financial performance. These non-GAAP measures include non-GAAP adjusted net income and earnings per share ("EPS") and non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA. Reconciliations to the nearest GAAP measures of all non-GAAP measures included in this press release can be found in the tables below.

Non-GAAP measures are provided to enhance investors' overall understanding of the Company's current financial performance, prospects for the future and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. The Company believes that these non-GAAP measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding financial performance by excluding certain expenses and benefits that may not be indicative of recurring core business operating results. The Company believes the non-GAAP measures that exclude such items when viewed in conjunction with GAAP results and the accompanying reconciliations enhance the comparability of results against prior periods and allow for greater transparency of financial results. The Company believes non-GAAP measures facilitate management's internal comparison of its financial performance to that of prior periods as well as trend analysis for budgeting and planning purposes. The presentation of non-GAAP measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

1Non-GAAP adjusted net income and EPS are defined as GAAP net income and EPS adjusted to exclude the effect of stock-based compensation, amortization of intangibles, adjustments in the fair value of earn-out liabilities associated with acquisitions, and transaction-related expenses and compensation costs. Readers are cautioned that non-GAAP adjusted net income and EPS should not be construed as an alternative to comparable GAAP net income figures determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP as an indicator of profitability or performance, which is the most comparable measure under GAAP.

2Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA is calculated as GAAP net income excluding the following cash and non-cash expenses: net interest income/(expense), adjustments in the fair value of earn-out liabilities associated with acquisitions, income tax provision, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangibles, foreign exchange transactions, and transaction-related expenses and compensation costs. Readers are cautioned that non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an alternative to net income determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP as an indicator of performance, which is the most comparable measure under GAAP.

Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP adjusted net income and EPS are used by management as internal measures of profitability and performance. They have been included because the Company believes that the measures are used by certain investors to assess the Company's financial performance before non-cash charges and certain costs that the Company does not believe are reflective of its underlying business.

  • ability as a smaller company to manage international operations

  • varying and often unpredictable levels of orders; the challenges inherent in technology development necessary to maintain the Company's competitive advantage such as adherence to release schedules and the costs and time required for finalization and gaining market acceptance of new products

  • changes in economic conditions and market demand

  • rapid and complex changes occurring in the mobile marketplace

  • pricing and other activities by competitors

  • technology management risk as the Company needs to adapt to a rapidly developing mobile device marketplace, complex specifications of different carriers and the management of a complex technology platform given the Company's relatively limited resources

  • system security risks and cyberattacks

  • risks and uncertainties associated with the integration of the acquisition of AdColony, including our ability to realize the anticipated benefits of the acquisition

  • risks and uncertainties associated with the integration of the acquisition of Fyber, including our ability to realize the anticipated benefits of the acquisition and the satisfaction of related earn-out provisions

  • risks associated with the failure or inability to pay the future consideration due in the AdColony and Fyber acquisitions

  • challenges and risks associated with our global operations and related business, political, regulatory, operational, financial, and economic risks as a result of our global operations

  • other risks including those described from time to time in Digital Turbine's filings on Forms 10-K and 10-Q with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), press releases and other communications.
