Digital Turbine Reports Fiscal 2019 First Quarter Results

Revenue from Continuing Operations of $22.1 Million Represented 46% Annual Growth

Finalizing Partnership Renewal with Leading U.S.-Based Carrier

PR Newswire

AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital Turbine, Inc. (NASDAQ:APPS) announced financial results for the fiscal first quarter ended June 30, 2018.  The Company divested its Content and Advertisers & Publishers ("A&P") businesses in two separate transactions that closed on July 1, 2018, and June 28, 2018 (effective June 1, 2018), respectively.  As a result, the operating results of these businesses are reflected as discontinued operations for all periods presented.  All operating results discussed below, except as otherwise specifically noted, refer only to the continuing operations of the Company, and all comparisons to prior periods have been adjusted to reflect only continuing operations. 

Recent Highlights:

  • Fiscal first quarter revenue was $22.1 million, representing 46% growth when compared to the fiscal first quarter of 2018.
  • GAAP net income from continuing operations for the fiscal first quarter was $1.5 million, or $0.02 per share. Non-GAAP adjusted net loss1 was $0.6 million, or ($0.01) per share.
  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA2 for the fiscal first quarter was $0.2 million, as compared to a Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA loss of $0.1 million in the fiscal first quarter of 2018.
  • The Company's cash balance was $8.6 million as of June 30, 2018, as compared to the March 31, 2018 balance of $12.7 million.
  • The Company has surpassed 175 million total devices with Ignite installed to date.
  • The Company is in the final stages of renewing its contract with a leading U.S.-based carrier partner for an additional four-year period.

"Demand for our rapidly evolving suite of product solutions from existing and prospective new partners and advertisers is at all-time highs," said Bill Stone, CEO.  "We are very near finalizing a renewal of our valued partnership with a leading U.S.-based carrier.  We view this renewal as an endorsement of our expanded platform and product roadmap, and it is expected to provide a source of meaningful potential growth for the Company in the years ahead.  Additionally, I continue to be optimistic about the Company's capacity to partner with leading global OEMs as a means of significantly expanding the platform's reach, especially as it relates to the penetration and monetization of global markets where the 'unlocked' BYOD model prevails."   

Mr. Stone concluded, "Although weaker-than-expected sales of a new flagship device presented a headwind in the June quarter, I am strongly encouraged by recent key developments at Digital Turbine, all of which point to the growing demand, and expanding market opportunity, for our unique platform offering.  Our platform is now enhanced with the addition of several promising new product features.  Meanwhile, our roster of partners and advertisers is continuing to expand as mobile players worldwide seek additional sources of monetization that simultaneously add value to end users. Digital Turbine is in the right spot at the right time – our focus continues to be squarely on execution as the means to successfully translate the burgeoning market opportunity into substantive financial gains for our shareholders."

First Quarter Fiscal 2019 Financial Results

Revenue for the fiscal first quarter of 2019 was $22.1 million, representing an increase of 46% year-over-year. Revenue growth was largely attributable to higher revenue-per-device with our larger U.S.-based carrier partners, which reflected incremental contributions from new product offerings added to the platform.

GAAP gross margin was 29% for the first quarter of fiscal 2019, as compared to a 34% GAAP gross margin in the fiscal first quarter of 2018.  Non-GAAP adjusted gross margin3 was 31% for the fiscal first quarter of 2019, as compared to 37% for the fiscal first quarter of 2018. The reconciliation between GAAP and Non-GAAP financial results for all referenced periods is provided in a table immediately following the Unaudited Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Income/(Loss) below.

Net income from continuing operations for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 was $1.5 million, or $0.02 per share, as compared to a net loss from continuing operations for the fiscal first quarter of 2018 of $4.1 million, or ($0.06) per share.  Non-GAAP adjusted net loss1 for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 was $0.6 million, or ($0.01) per share, as compared to a Non-GAAP adjusted net loss of of $1.1 million, or ($0.02) per share, during the fiscal first quarter of 2018.

Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA2 was $0.2 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2019, as compared to a Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA loss of $0.1 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2018.  Please see 'Use of Non-GAAP Measures' at the end of this press release for the definition of Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA and a reconciliation to GAAP net income/(loss) from continuing operations.

Business Outlook

Based on information available as of August 9, 2018, the Company expects second quarter of fiscal 2019 revenue of approximately $23 million and sequential improvement in non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA2.  It is not reasonably practicable to provide a business outlook for GAAP net income from continuing operations because the Company cannot reasonably estimate the changes in the fair value of derivatives and warrants related to the September 2016 convertible notes offering, which are directly impacted by changes in the Company's stock price.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"), Digital Turbine uses non-GAAP measures of certain components of financial performance.  These non-GAAP measures include non-GAAP adjusted gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP free cash flow.   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/(loss) and EPS are defined as GAAP net income/(loss) and EPS adjusted to exclude the effect of stock-based compensation, amortization of intangibles, changes in the fair value of derivatives and warrants related to the September 2016 convertible notes offering, and non-recurring severance expense.  Readers are cautioned that Non-GAAP adjusted net income/(loss) 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/(loss) excluding the following cash and non-cash expenses: interest expense, foreign exchange transaction loss/(gain), income tax provision/(benefit), depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, the change in fair value of derivatives and warrants that are recorded related to the September 2016 convertible notes offering, other income / (expense), loss on disposal of fixed assets, and non-recurring severance expense.  Readers are cautioned that Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an alternative to net income (loss) determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP as an indicator of performance, which is the most comparable measure under GAAP.

3Non-GAAP adjusted gross profit and gross margin are defined as GAAP gross profit and gross margin adjusted to exclude the effect of intangible amortization expense and depreciation of software.  Readers are cautioned that Non-GAAP adjusted gross profit and gross margin should not be construed as an alternative to gross margin determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP as an indicator of profitability or performance, which is the most comparable measure under GAAP. 

Additionally, we provide supplemental Non-GAAP free cash flow information in a table below, which is defined as net cash provided by operating activities (as stated in our Unaudited Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows) reduced by capital expenditures. Readers are cautioned that free cash flow should not be construed as an alternative to net cash provided by / (used in) operating activities determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP as an indicator of profitability, performance or liquidity, which is the most comparable measure under GAAP.

Non-GAAP adjusted gross profit and gross margin, Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP adjusted net income / (loss) and EPS, and Non-GAAP free cash flow are used by management as internal measures of profitability, performance and liquidity.  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.

Forward-Looking Statements
This news release includes "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the U.S. federal securities laws. Statements in this news release that are not statements of historical fact and that concern future results from operations, financial position, economic conditions, product releases and any other statement that may be construed as a prediction of future performance or events, including financial projections and growth in various products are forward-looking statements that speak only as of the date made and which involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may, should one or more of these risks uncertainties or other factors materialize, cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such statements.

These factors and risks include:

  • risks associated with Ignite adoption among existing customers (including the impact of possible delays with major carrier and OEM partners in the roll out for mobile phones deploying Ignite)
  • actual mobile device sales and sell-through where Ignite is deployed is out of our control
  • risks associated with the timing of Ignite software pushes to the embedded bases of carrier and OEM partners
  • risks associated with end user take rates of carrier and OEM software pushes which include Ignite
  • new customer adoption and time to revenue with new carrier and OEM partners is subject to delays and factors out of our control
  • risks associated with fluctuations in the number of Ignite slots across US carrier partners
  • required customization and technical integration which may slow down time to revenue notwithstanding the existence of a distribution agreement
  • risk that strong Apple iPhone sales could result in a disproportionately low amount of Android sales
  • risks associated with delays in major mobile phone launches, or the failure of such launches to achieve the scale
  • customer adoption that either we or the market may expect
  • risks associated with the level of our secured and unsecured indebtedness
  • ability to comply with financial covenants in outstanding indebtedness
  • the difficulty of extrapolating monthly demand to quarterly demand
  • the challenges, given the Company's comparatively small size, to expand the combined Company's global reach, accelerate growth and create a scalable, low-capex business model that drives EBITDA (as well as Adjusted EBITDA)
  • 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
  • derivative and warrant liabilities on our balance sheet will fluctuate as our stock price moves and will also produce changes in our income statement; these fluctuations and changes might materially impact our reported GAAP financials in an adverse manner, particularly if our stock price were to rise
  • technology management risk as the Company needs to adapt to complex specifications of different carriers and the management of a complex technology platform given the Company's relatively limited resources, and
  • 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. You should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. The Company does not undertake to update forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.
