Grid Dynamics Reports First Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Grid Dynamics

Revenue of $80.1 million, up 12.1% year-over-year

SAN RAMON, CA / ACCESSWIRE / May 4, 2023 / Grid Dynamics Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:GDYN) ("Grid Dynamics" or "Company"), a leader in enterprise-level digital transformation, today announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023.

We are very pleased to report first quarter 2023 revenue of $80.1 million that was up 12.1% on a year-over-year basis. Our non-retail industry verticals represented 68.3% of revenue in the first quarter, a decrease of (0.4)% on a sequential basis and an increase of 13.7% on a year-over-year basis. Totaling 33.5% of our first quarter revenue, the Technology, Media and Telecom ("TMT") was our largest vertical and decreased (1.3)% on a sequential basis and grew 25.0% on a year-over-year basis. Our Retail vertical, at 31.7% of our first quarter revenue, remained almost unchanged on a sequential basis and grew 9.0% on a year-over-year basis. Our Finance vertical, representing 8.1% of our first quarter revenue, grew 4.3% on a sequential basis and 43.9% on a year-over-year basis and this was largely due to growth from Banking and Insurance customers. Our CPG and Manufacturing vertical, representing 15.8% of our first quarter revenue, a decrease of (10.2)% and (15.6)% on a sequential basis and a year-over-year basis accordingly.

"I am delighted to report the first quarter results. Revenue and profitability were at the high end of our expectations. During the quarter we signed new exciting enterprise clients including a global pharmaceutical company and a US based telecommunication company. Our current pipeline for new client engagements is strong. Our partnerships continue to contribute meaningfully to new business generation. During the quarter we established new partnerships in the supply-chain and marketing areas. Our AI researchers partnered with our customers on generative AI applications for wealth management, product design, and customer support. The investment in GigaCube resulted in a business win at a global financial company demonstrating our expertise in Fintech. I am confident in our technical capabilities and flawless engineering delivery. Grid Dynamics is well positioned to execute on our strategy," said Leonard Livschitz, CEO.

First Quarter of 2023 Financial Highlights

  • Total revenue was $80.1 million, a 12.1% year-over-year increase.

  • GAAP gross profit was $28.6 million or 35.7% of revenue in the first quarter of 2023, compared to GAAP gross profit of $26.8 million or 37.5% of revenue in the first quarter of 2022. Non-GAAP gross profit was $29.0 million or 36.3% of revenue in the first quarter of 2023, compared to Non-GAAP gross profit of $27.0 million or 37.8% of revenue in the first quarter of 2022.

  • GAAP Net loss attributable to common stockholders was $(8.0) million, or $(0.11) per share, based on 74.5 million weighted-average common shares outstanding in the first quarter of 2023, compared to GAAP Net loss of $(2.7) million, or $(0.04) per share, based on 66.9 million weighted-average common shares outstanding in the first quarter of 2022. Non-GAAP Net income was $6.5 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, based on 77.1 million weighted-average common shares outstanding in the first quarter of 2023, compared to Non-GAAP Net income of $6.9 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, based on 70.2 million weighted-average common shares outstanding in the first quarter of 2022.

  • Non-GAAP EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, other income, fair value adjustments, stock-based compensation, transaction and transformation-related costs, restructuring costs as well as geographic reorganization expenses), a non-GAAP metric, was $10.8 million in the first quarter of 2023 compared to Non-GAAP EBITDA of $11.4 million in the first quarter of 2022.

See "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Information" below for a discussion of our non-GAAP measures.

Cash Flow and Other Metrics

  • Cash provided by operating activities was $11.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023, compared to cash provided by operating activities of $9.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022.

  • Cash and cash equivalents totaled $258.4 million as of March 31, 2023, compared to $256.7 million as of December 31, 2022.

  • Total headcount was 3,744 as of March 31, 2023, compared with 3,671 employees as of March 31, 2022.

Financial Outlook

  • The Company expects revenue in the second quarter of 2023 to be between $76.0 million and $78.0 million.

  • Non-GAAP EBITDA in the second quarter of 2023 is expected to be between $10.0 million and $11.0 million.

  • For the second quarter of 2023, we expect our basic share count to be in the 75-76 million range and diluted share count to be in the 78-79 million range.

Grid Dynamics is not able, at this time, to provide GAAP targets for net income for the second quarter of 2023 because of the difficulty of estimating certain items excluded from Non-GAAP EBITDA that cannot be reasonably predicted, such as interest, taxes, other income, fair-value adjustments, geographic reorganization expenses, restructuring expenses and charges related to stock-based compensation expense. The effect of these excluded items may be significant.

Conference Call and Webcast

Grid Dynamics will host a video conference call at 4:30 p.m. ET on Thursday, May 4, 2023 to discuss its first quarter financial results. Investors and other interested parties can access the call in the following ways: A webcast of the video conference call can be accessed on the Investor Relations section of the Company's website at https://ir.griddynamics.com/.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the financial measures presented in Grid Dynamics press release in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"), the Company also presents non-GAAP measures of financial performance.

A "non-GAAP financial measure" refers to a numerical measure of Grid Dynamics historical or future financial performance or financial position that is included in (or excluded from) the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Grid Dynamics provides certain non-GAAP measures as additional information relating to its operating results as a complement to results provided in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial information presented herein should be considered in conjunction with, and not as a substitute for or superior to, the financial information presented in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered a measure of liquidity and profitability.

Grid Dynamics has included these non-GAAP financial measures because they are financial measures used by Grid Dynamics' management to evaluate Grid Dynamics' core operating performance and trends, to make strategic decisions regarding the allocation of capital and new investments and are among the factors analyzed in making performance-based compensation decisions for key personnel.

Grid Dynamics believes the use of non-GAAP financial measures, as a supplement to GAAP measures, is useful to investors in that they eliminate items that are either not part of core operations or do not require a cash outlay, such as stock-based compensation expense. Grid Dynamics believes these non-GAAP measures provide investors and other users of its financial information consistency and comparability with its past financial performance and facilitate period to period comparisons of operations. Grid Dynamics believes these non-GAAP measures are useful in evaluating its operating performance compared to that of other companies in its industry, as they generally eliminate the effects of certain items that may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to overall operating performance.

There are significant limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures. Further, these measures may differ from the non-GAAP information, even where similarly titled, used by other companies and therefore should not be used to compare our performance to that of other companies. Grid Dynamics compensates for these limitations by providing investors and other users of its financial information a reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to the related GAAP financial measures. Grid Dynamics encourages investors and others to review its financial information in its entirety, not to rely on any single financial measure, and to view its non-GAAP measures in conjunction with GAAP financial measures. Please see the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures attached to this release.

Forward-Looking Statements

This communication contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 that are not historical facts, and involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results of Grid Dynamics to differ materially from those expected and projected. These forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology, including the words "believes," "estimates," "anticipates," "expects," "intends," "plans," "may," "will," "potential," "projects," "predicts," "continue," or "should," or, in each case, their negative or other variations or comparable terminology. These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, the quotations of management, the section titled "Financial Outlook," and statements concerning Grid Dynamics's expectations with respect to future performance, particularly in light of the macroeconomic environment and the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

These forward-looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties that could cause the actual results to differ materially from the expected results. Most of these factors are outside Grid Dynamics's control and are difficult to predict. Factors that may cause such differences include, but are not limited to: (i) Grid Dynamics has a relatively short operating history and operates in a rapidly evolving industry, which makes it difficult to evaluate future prospects and may increase the risk that it will not continue to be successful and may adversely impact our stock price; (ii) Grid Dynamics may be unable to effectively manage its growth or achieve anticipated growth, particularly as it expands into new geographies, which could place significant strain on Grid Dynamics' management personnel, systems and resources; (iii) Grid Dynamics' revenues are highly dependent on a limited number of clients and industries that are affected by seasonal trends, and any decrease in demand for outsourced services in these industries may reduce Grid Dynamics' revenues and adversely affect Grid Dynamics' business, financial condition and results of operations; (iv) macroeconomic conditions, inflationary pressures, and the geopolitical climate, including the Russian invasion of Ukraine, have and may continue to materially adversely affect our stock price, business operations, overall financial performance and growth prospects; (v) Grid Dynamics' revenues are highly dependent on clients primarily located in the United States, and any economic downturn in the United States or in other parts of the world, including Europe or disruptions in the credit markets may have a material adverse effect on Grid Dynamics' business, financial condition and results of operations; (vi) Grid Dynamics faces intense and increasing competition; (vii) Grid Dynamics' failure to successfully attract, hire, develop, motivate and retain highly skilled personnel could materially adversely affect Grid Dynamics' business, financial condition and results of operations; (viii) failure to adapt to rapidly changing technologies, methodologies and evolving industry standards may have a material adverse effect on Grid Dynamics' business, financial condition and results of operations; (ix) failure to successfully deliver contracted services or causing disruptions to clients' businesses may have a material adverse effect on Grid Dynamics' reputation, business, financial condition and results of operations; (x) risks and costs related to acquiring and integrating other companies; and (xi) other risks and uncertainties indicated in Grid Dynamics filings with the SEC.

Grid Dynamics cautions that the foregoing list of factors is not exclusive. Grid Dynamics cautions readers not to place undue reliance upon any forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date made. Grid Dynamics does not undertake or accept any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statements to reflect any change in its expectations or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based. Further information about factors that could materially affect Grid Dynamics, including its results of operations and financial condition, is set forth under the "Risk Factors" section of the Company's quarterly report on Form 10-Q filed May 4, 2023 and in other periodic filings Grid Dynamics makes with the SEC.
