FIRST QUARTER RESULTS

Revenue

First quarter revenue of $199.1 million increased $15.9 million or 9% as compared to the first quarter of 2021. Revenue generated through our E-commerce sales channel increased 7% as compared to the first quarter of 2021, to $127.1 million, and represented 64% of total revenue in the first quarter of 2022. E-commerce revenue growth was driven by higher subscriber revenue and also benefited from our acquisitions of TurboSquid and PicMonkey. Revenue from our Enterprise sales channel increased 11% as compared to the first quarter of 2021, to $72.1 million, and represented 36% of first quarter revenue in 2022.  Enterprise revenue growth was driven by our multi-asset product offerings and continued momentum in Shutterstock Studios and Shutterstock Editorial.

On a constant currency basis, revenue increased 11% in the first quarter of 2022 as compared to the first quarter of 2021. On a constant currency basis, E-commerce and Enterprise revenues increased by 9% and 13%, respectively, in the first quarter of 2022, as compared to 2021.

Net income and net income per diluted share

Net income of $26.6 million decreased $2.9 million as compared to $29.5 million for the first quarter in 2021. Net income per diluted share was $0.71, as compared to $0.79 for the same period in 2021. This decrease was due primarily to increases in operating expenses partially offset by revenue growth in the first quarter of 2022 as compared to 2021. The increase in operating expenses was driven by higher depreciation and amortization expense reported in cost of revenues resulting from our 2021 acquisitions and higher marketing expenses.

Adjusted net income per diluted share was $1.00 as compared to $0.98 for the first quarter of 2021, an increase of $0.02 per diluted share.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA of $54.8 million for the first quarter of 2022 decreased by $1.6 million, or 3%, as compared to the first quarter of 2021, due primarily to higher operating expenses, partially offset by increased revenue. The adjusted EBITDA margin decreased to 27.5% from 30.8% in the first quarter of 2021.

FIRST QUARTER LIQUIDITY

Our cash and cash equivalents decreased by $55.9 million to $258.1 million at March 31, 2022, as compared with $314.0 million as of March 31, 2021. This decrease was driven by $65.6 million used in financing activities and $12.5 million used in investing activities, partially offset by $22.7 million of net cash provided by our operating activities.

Net cash provided by our operating activities was driven by our operating income, in addition to changes in the timing of payments pertaining to operating expenses. Cash used in investing activities primarily consists of $12.5 million related to capital expenditures and content acquisition. Cash used in financing activities consists primarily of $38.4 million for the repurchase of common stock under our share repurchase program, $18.5 million paid in settlement of tax withholding obligations related to employee stock-based compensation awards and $8.7 million related to the payment of the quarterly cash dividend.

Free cash flow was $10.2 million for the first quarter of 2022, a decrease of $16.6 million from the first quarter of 2021. This change was primarily driven by lower cash flows from operating activities.

QUARTERLY CASH DIVIDEND

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company declared and paid cash dividends of $0.24 per common share, or $8.7 million.

On April 19, 2022, the Board of Directors declared a dividend of $0.24 per share of outstanding common stock, payable on June 16, 2022 to stockholders of record at the close of business on June 2, 2022.

  • Revenue of $835 million to $850 million, representing annual growth of 8% - 10%.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of between $210 million to $217 million.
  • Adjusted net income per diluted share of between $3.65 to $3.80.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

To supplement Shutterstock's consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with the accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or GAAP, Shutterstock's management considers certain financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, collectively referred to as non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted share, revenue growth (including by distribution channel) on a constant currency basis (expressed as a percentage), billings and free cash flow.

Shutterstock defines adjusted EBITDA as net income adjusted for depreciation and amortization, non-cash equity-based compensation, foreign currency transaction gains and losses, interest income and expense and income taxes; adjusted EBITDA margin as the ratio of adjusted EBITDA to revenue; adjusted net income as net income adjusted for the impact of non-cash equity-based compensation, the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets and the estimated tax impact of such adjustments; adjusted net income per diluted share as adjusted net income divided by weighted average diluted shares; revenue growth (including by distribution channel) on a constant currency basis (expressed as a percentage) as the increase in current period revenues over prior period revenues, utilizing fixed exchange rates for translating foreign currency revenues for all periods in the comparison; billings as revenue adjusted for the change in deferred revenue, excluding deferred revenue acquired through business combinations; and free cash flow as cash provided by operating activities, adjusted for capital expenditures, and content acquisition. These figures have not been calculated in accordance with GAAP and should be considered only in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. Shutterstock cautions investors that non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and are not necessarily comparable to similarly-titled measures presented by other companies.

Shutterstock's management believes that adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted share, revenue growth (including by distribution channel) on a constant currency basis (expressed as a percentage), billings and free cash flow are useful to investors because these measures enable investors to analyze Shutterstock's operating results on the same basis as that used by management. Additionally, management believes that adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income and adjusted net income per diluted share provide useful information to investors about the performance of the Company's overall business because such measures eliminate the effects of unusual or other infrequent charges that are not directly attributable to Shutterstock's underlying operating performance; and revenue growth (including by distribution channel) on a constant currency basis (expressed as a percentage) provides useful information to investors by eliminating the effect of foreign currency fluctuations that are not directly attributable to Shutterstock's operating performance. Management also believes that providing these non-GAAP financial measures enhances the comparability for investors in assessing Shutterstock's financial reporting. Shutterstock's management believes that free cash flow is useful for investors because it provides them with an important perspective on the cash available for strategic measures, after making necessary capital investments in internal-use software and website development costs to support the Company's ongoing business operations and provides them with the same measures that management uses as the basis for making resource allocation decisions.

Shutterstock's management also uses the non-GAAP financial measures adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted share, revenue growth (including by distribution channel) on a constant currency basis (expressed as a percentage), billings and free cash flow, in conjunction with GAAP financial measures, as an integral part of managing the business and to, among other things: (i) monitor and evaluate the performance of Shutterstock's business operations, financial performance and overall liquidity; (ii) facilitate management's internal comparisons of the historical operating performance of its business operations; (iii) facilitate management's external comparisons of the results of its overall business to the historical operating performance of other companies that may have different capital structures and debt levels; (iv) review and assess the operating performance of Shutterstock's management team and, together with other operational objectives, as a measure in evaluating employee compensation and bonuses; (v) analyze and evaluate financial and strategic planning decisions regarding future operating investments; and (vi) plan for and prepare future annual operating budgets and determine appropriate levels of operating investments.

Reconciliations of the differences between adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted share, revenue growth (including by distribution channel) on a constant currency basis (expressed as a percentage), billings, free cash flow, and the most comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, are presented under the headings "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Information to GAAP" and "Supplemental Financial Data" immediately following the Consolidated Balance Sheets.
