  • Added a record 14 new scaled customers in the quarter and grew scaled customer ARPU 19% Y/Y

  • Drove direct platform revenue contribution of 81% vs. 77% in 2Q’21, resulting in a 290 bps Y/Y reduction in cost of revenue to 36.6%, or a 390 bps Y/Y reduction excluding stock-based compensation to 35.3%1

  • Generated cash flow from operating activities of $14.7M, up 93% Y/Y

  • Announcing $50 million stock repurchase and RSA withholding program

NEW YORK, August 03, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Zeta Global (NYSE: ZETA), a cloud-based marketing technology company that empowers enterprises to acquire, grow, and retain customers more efficiently, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.

"Zeta delivered another strong quarter with accelerating revenue and profit growth along with robust cash generation," said David A. Steinberg, Co-Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Zeta. "Marketing efficiency has never been more important than it is today, and Zeta is well positioned to capitalize. We are incredibly proud of the company we have built and the people who have helped us build it. We believe the current valuation of our shares does not reflect the true value of our company. Our new share repurchase authorization reinforces our Board’s confidence in the continued growth of the business and our commitment to creating value for our shareholders."

"With our fourth straight quarter of beating and raising against expectations, our second quarter results continue to showcase Zeta’s culture of high performance and strong execution," said Chris Greiner, Zeta’s CFO. "Record new scaled customer additions, continued ARPU expansion, sustained positive mix shift, an increasing mix of multi-year, recurring revenue contracts, record RFP activity, and robust pipeline expansion are continued evidence that our value proposition is resonating in the market and that demand remains resilient. We are tracking ahead of our Zeta 2025 plan with strength across each of our core KPIs."

Second Quarter 2022 Highlights

  • Total revenue of $137 million, an increase of 28% Y/Y.

  • Scaled customer count of 373 compared to 359 in 1Q’22.

  • Scaled customer ARPU of $355 thousand, an increase of 19% Y/Y.

  • Direct platform revenue made up 81% of total revenue compared to 77% in 2Q’21.

  • Lowered the cost of revenue percentage by 390 basis points Y/Y to 35.3%, excluding stock-based compensation1.

  • GAAP net loss of $86 million, or 62.6% of revenue, was driven primarily by $82.3 million of stock-based compensation in addition to $5.7 million of other expenses mostly related to the equity component of prior M&A deals. The net loss in 2Q’21 was $94.9 million, or 88.8% of revenue.

  • GAAP loss per share of $0.63 compared to a loss per share of $1.92 in 2Q’21.

  • Cash flow from operating activities of $14.7 million, compared to $7.6 million in 2Q’21.

  • Free Cash Flow1 of $6.2 million, compared to ($1.8) million in 2Q’21.

  • Adjusted EBITDA1 of $18.6 million, an increase of 63% compared to $11.4 million in 2Q’21.

  • Adjusted EBITDA margin1 of 13.5%, compared to 10.7% in 2Q’21.

Recent Highlights

  • In August 2022, the Board authorized a stock repurchase program for up to $50 million of Zeta’s Class A common stock through December 31, 2024, whereby repurchases may be made from time to time using a variety of methods, including open market purchases or privately negotiated transactions.

  • In August 2022, the Board authorized the withholding of shares from certain executive officers to satisfy tax obligations upon vesting of restricted stock awards, in lieu of having the executives sell shares into the market to satisfy these obligations.

  • The Company intends to use approximately $50 million in aggregate Free Cash Flow to fund repurchases and withholdings under the two programs through December 31, 2024, if economic and market conditions are favorable.

The Following Definitions Apply to the Terms Used Throughout this Release, the Supplemental Earnings Presentation and Investor Conference Call

  • Direct Platform and Integrated Platform: When the Company generates revenues entirely through the Company platform, the Company considers it direct platform revenue. When the Company generates revenue by leveraging its platform’s integration with third parties, it is considered integrated platform revenue.

  • Cost of revenue: Cost of revenue excludes depreciation and amortization and consists primarily of media and marketing costs and certain personnel costs. Media and marketing costs consist primarily of fees paid to third-party publishers, media owners or managers, and strategic partners that are directly related to a revenue-generating event. We pay these third-party publishers, media owners or managers and strategic partners on a revenue-share, a cost-per-lead, cost-per-click, or cost-per-thousand-impressions basis. Personnel costs included in cost of revenues include salaries, bonuses, commissions, stock-based compensation and employee benefit costs primarily related to individuals directly associated with providing services to our customers.

  • Scaled Customers: We define scaled customers as customers from which we generated more than $100,000 in revenue on a trailing twelve-month basis. We calculate the number of scaled customers at the end of each quarter and on an annual basis as the number of customers billed during each applicable period. We believe the scaled customers measure is both an important contributor to our revenue growth and an indicator to investors of our measurable success.

  • Super Scaled Customers: We define super scaled customers as customers from which we generated more than $1,000,000 in revenue on a trailing twelve-month basis. We calculate the number of super scaled customers at the end of each quarter and on an annual basis as the number of customers billed during each applicable period. We believe the super scaled customers measure is both an important contributor to our revenue growth and an indicator to investors of our measurable success.

  • Scaled Customer ARPU: We calculate the scaled customer average revenue per user ("ARPU") as revenue for the corresponding period divided by the average number of scaled customers during that period. We believe that scaled customer ARPU is useful for investors because it is an indicator of our ability to increase revenue and scale our business

Non-GAAP Measures

In order to assist readers of our condensed unaudited consolidated financial statements in understanding the core operating results that our management uses to evaluate the business and for financial planning purposes, we describe our non-GAAP measures below. We believe these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors in evaluating our performance by providing an additional tool for investors to use in comparing our financial performance over multiple periods.

  • Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as net loss adjusted for interest expense, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, income tax (benefit) / provision, acquisition related expenses, restructuring expenses, change in fair value of warrants and derivative liabilities, certain dispute settlement expenses, gain on extinguishment of debt, certain non-recurring IPO related expenses, including the payroll taxes related to vesting of restricted stock and restricted stock units upon the completion of the IPO, and other expenses. Acquisition related expenses and restructuring expenses primarily consist of severance and other employee-related costs which we do not expect to incur in the future as acquisitions of businesses may distort the comparability of the results of operations. Change in fair value of warrants and derivative liabilities is a non-cash expense related to periodically recording "mark-to-market" changes in the valuation of derivatives and warrants. Other expenses consist of non-cash expenses such as changes in fair value of acquisition related liabilities, gains and losses on extinguishment of acquisition related liabilities, gains and losses on sales of assets and foreign exchange gains and losses. In particular, we believe that the exclusion of stock-based compensation, certain dispute settlement expenses and non-recurring IPO related expenses that are not related to our core operations provides measures for period-to-period comparisons of our business and provides additional insight into our core controllable costs. We exclude these charges because these expenses are not reflective of ongoing business and operating results.

  • Adjusted EBITDA margin is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as Adjusted EBITDA divided by the total revenues for the same period.

  • Cost of revenue, excluding stock-based compensation is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as cost of revenue as defined above less stock-based compensation.

  • Free Cash Flow is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as cash from operating activities, less capital expenditures and website and software development costs.

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Cost of revenue excluding stock-based compensation, and Free Cash Flow provide us with useful measures for period-to-period comparisons of our business as well as comparison to our peers. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in analyzing our financial and operational performance. Nevertheless our use of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Cost of revenue excluding stock-based compensation, and Free Cash Flow has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider these measures in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our financial results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Other companies may calculate similarly-titled non-GAAP financial measures differently than us, thereby limiting the usefulness of these non-GAAP financial measures as a comparative tool. Because of these and other limitations, you should consider our non-GAAP measures only as supplemental to other GAAP-based financial performance measures, including revenues and net loss.

We calculate forward-looking Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin based on internal forecasts that omit certain amounts that would be included in forward-looking GAAP net income (loss). We do not attempt to provide a reconciliation of forward-looking Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin guidance and targets to forward looking GAAP net income (loss) because forecasting the timing or amount of items that have not yet occurred and are out of our control is inherently uncertain and unavailable without unreasonable efforts. Further, we believe that such reconciliations would imply a degree of precision and certainty that could be confusing to investors. Such items could have a substantial impact on GAAP measures of financial performance.
