Third Quarter 2023 Financial Highlights

  • GAAP revenue of $35.1 million, a decrease of 6% and 22%, respectively, compared to GAAP and Pro forma revenues, respectively, for Q3 2022 driven primarily by declines in Managed Services and Software Products.
  • Software revenues of $20.4 million, a decrease of $8.2 million or 29% compared to Pro Forma Software Products & Services revenue for Q3 2022 driven largely from reduced spend from Amazon in Q3 2023.
  • Managed Services revenue of $14.8 million, as compared to $16.4 million in Q3 2022.
  • Total Software Products & Services Customers(1) of 3,536, down 7% compared to pro forma Q3 2022 largely driven by planned migration of legacy CareerBuilder customers off Broadbean software platform.
  • Total New Bookings(1) of $15.5 million, up 85% from Q2 2023, and down 35% compared to Q3 2022 driven by reduced HR consumption from a major customer.
  • Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR)(1) of $98.6 million, down 24% compared to ARR for Q3 2022, largely driven by drop in consumption-based ARR from major customer over the trailing twelve months from Q3 2023 as compared to Q3 2022.
  • Loss from Operations of $23.1 million, as compared to a loss of $3.6 million in Q3 2022 driven by a one-time non-cash benefit of $14.3 million in Q3 2022 coupled with a decline in non-GAAP gross profit.
  • Non-GAAP gross profit of $27.9 million, a decrease of $2.2 million compared to Q3 2022 driven by the reduction in higher margin consumption-based revenue offset by the addition of Broadbean.
  • Net Loss of $20.9 million, as compared to $4.9 million in Q3 2022.
  • Non-GAAP Net Loss of $7.9 million, as compared to $5.7 million in Q3 2022.

(1) “Pro Forma Software Revenue” is a non-GAAP measure that represents Software Products & Services revenue on a Pro Forma basis.

(2) “Total Software Products & Services Customers” includes Pro Forma Software Products & Services customers as of the end of each respective quarter set forth above with net revenues in excess of $10 and also excludes any customers categorized by us as trial or pilot status. In prior periods, we provided “Ending Software Customers,” which represented Software Products & Services customers as of the end of each fiscal quarter with trailing twelve-month revenues in excess of $2,400 for both Veritone, Inc. and PandoLogic Ltd. and/or deemed by the Company to be under an active contract for the applicable periods. Total Software Products & Services Customers is not comparable to Ending Software Customers. Total Software Products & Services Customers includes customers based on revenues in the last month of the quarter rather than on a trailing twelve month basis and excludes any customers that are on trial or pilot status with us rather than including customers with active contracts. Management uses Total Software Products & Services Customers and we believe Total Software Products & Services Customers are useful to investors because it more accurately reflects our total customers for our Software Products & Services inclusive of Broadbean.

(3) “Annual Recurring Revenue” is calculated as Annual Recurring Revenue (SaaS), which is an annualized calculation of the monthly recurring revenue in the last month of the calculated quarter for all active Software Products & Services customers, combined with Annual Recurring Revenue (Consumption), which is the trailing twelve month calculation of all non-recurring and/or consumption-based revenue for all active Software Products & Services customers. In prior periods, we provided “Average Annual Revenue,” which was calculated as the aggregate of trailing twelve-month Software Products & Services revenue divided by the average number of customers over the same period for both Veritone, Inc. and PandoLogic Ltd. Pro Forma Annual Recurring Revenue is not comparable to Average Annual Revenue. Annual Recurring Revenue is on a Pro Forma basis, is not averaged among active customers and uses a calculation of recurring revenue as described above instead of annual revenue. Management uses “Annual Recurring Revenue” and we believe Annual Recurring Revenue is useful to investors because Broadbean significantly increases our mix of subscription-based SaaS revenues as compared to non-recurring and/or consumption-based revenues.

(4) “Total New Bookings” represents the total fees payable during the full contract term for new contracts received in the quarter (including fees payable during any cancellable portion and an estimate of license fees that may fluctuate over the term), excluding any variable fees under the contract (e.g., fees for cognitive processing, storage, professional services and other variable services), in each case on a Pro Forma basis.

(5) “Gross Revenue Retention” represents our dollar-based gross retention rate as of the period end by starting with the revenue from Software Products & Services Customers as of the 3 months in the prior year quarter to such period, or Prior Year Quarter Revenue. We then deduct from the Prior Year Quarter Revenue any revenue from Software Products & Services Customers who are no longer customers as of the current period end, or Current Period Ending Software Customer Revenue. We then divide the total Current Period Ending Software Customer Revenue by the total Prior Year Quarter Revenue to arrive at our dollar-based gross retention rate, which is the percentage of revenue from all Software Products & Services Customers from our Software Products & Services as of the year prior that is not lost to customer churn. All numbers used to determine Gross Revenue Retention are calculated on a Pro Forma basis.

Recent Business Highlights

Veritone entered into a commitment letter with certain funds managed by Highbridge Capital Management, LLC and with certain other lenders on November 7, 2023 to provide a senior secured term loan facility in an aggregate principal amount of $77.5 million (the “Term Loan”). Veritone expects to use the proceeds of the Term Loan to repurchase an aggregate $50.0 million principal amount of its existing 1.75% convertible senior notes due 2026 held by the lenders at a purchase price of $37.5 million plus accrued and unpaid interest and for general corporate purposes.

The Term Loan will have a term of four years, accrue interest at a rate of Term SOFR plus 8.50%, with a 3.00% floor for Term SOFR, payable quarterly, and will require quarterly amortization payments of 2.5% of the principal amount, commencing in June 2024. Veritone may, subject to certain conditions and limitations, elect to make any amortization payment in shares of its common stock. Veritone may prepay the term loan, subject to payment of a premium, at any time and is required to prepay the term loan on certain customary events. Veritone may also, subject to certain conditions and limitations, elect to prepay portions of the Term Loan in shares of its common stock.

Veritone has agreed to issue warrants to the lenders to purchase up to 3,008,540 shares of Common Stock, with 20% of the warrants to be issued for entry into the commitment letter and the remaining 80% conditioned on the closing of the Term Loan. We expect the Term Loan to close in the fourth quarter and replace our Senior Secured ABL Facility.

In other recent developments:

  • The company was selected by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) for a $15 million five-year Blanket Purchase Agreement, allowing all DOJ agencies to easily purchase Veritone software and services.
  • The Legislative Branch of the U.S. Government will use the company’s cutting-edge solutions to streamline its digital media management efforts through a channel partnership with CHESA, a prominent provider of media workflow solutions.
  • Signed and renewed software contracts with CAA, United States Tennis Association, A&E Networks, HBO, Augusta National, and NBC Universal.
  • Announced a comprehensive multi-year partnership extension with U.S. Soccer, the governing body of soccer in the United States including the U.S. Women’s and Men’s National Teams, Youth National Teams and Extended National Teams, to continue to serve as the archive of record and a licensing partner for all U.S. Soccer owned content, including all National Teams.
  • Announced that Table Rock Management LLC, its subsidiary, entered into an exclusive advertising direct sales monetization agreement with SpokenLayer, a full-service creative studio specializing in custom, short-form digital audio content for the media and entertainment industries.

Financial Results for Three Months Ended September 30, 2023

Delivered third quarter revenue of $35.1 million, a decrease of $2.1 million or 6% from $37.2 million in the third quarter of 2022. Software Products & Services revenue of $20.4 million, declined $0.5 million or 2% year over year driven by reduction in consumption-based revenue from a major customer offset by the addition of Broadbean, which was acquired in June 2023. Managed Services revenue decreased by $1.6 million, or 10%, to $14.8 million, driven by lower advertising revenue and spend. Loss from operations was $23.1 million as compared to a loss of $3.6 million in Q3 2022 driven in part by a non-cash benefit of $14.3 million in Q3 2022 associated with a revaluation of certain contingent consideration, coupled with the decline in non-GAAP gross profit. Non-GAAP gross profit of $27.9 million in Q3 2023 declined by $2.2 million year over year due to a reduction in higher margin consumption-based revenue. Non-GAAP gross margin of 79.5% was relatively flat compared to the third quarter of 2022.

GAAP net loss was $20.9 million, compared to $4.9 million in the third quarter of 2022, driven in part by increased general and administrative expenses. Non-GAAP net loss was $7.9 million compared to $5.7 million in the third quarter of 2022, largely driven by the decline in revenue and corresponding non-GAAP gross margins.

During Q3 2023, Total Software Product & Services Customers of 3,536, on a Pro Forma basis, was down slightly year over year, given the run-off of legacy CareerBuilder customers transitioning off Broadbean’s platform over the last 18 months. Total New Bookings on a Pro Forma basis decreased by 35% to $15.5 million versus the comparable period a year ago largely driven by a reduction in spend from Amazon. Annual Recurring Revenue on a Pro Forma basis decreased 24% year over year to $98.6 million driven in large part by the decline in consumption revenue from Amazon over the trailing twelve months ended Q3 2023 as compared to Q3 2022. Excluding Amazon, Pro Forma Software revenue growth was 4% year over year.

As of September 30, 2023, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $72.1 million, including approximately $58.0 million of cash received from Managed Services clients for future payments to vendors.

Business Outlook

About the Presentation of Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Information and Key Performance Indicators

In this news release, the Company has supplemented its financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) with certain non-GAAP financial measures, including Pro Forma Software Revenue, Non-GAAP gross profit, Non-GAAP gross margin, Non-GAAP net income (loss) and Non-GAAP net income (loss) per share. The Company also provides certain key performance indicators (KPIs), including Total Software Products & Services Customers, Annual Recurring Revenue, Annual Recurring Revenue (SaaS), Annual Recurring Revenue (Consumption), Total New Bookings and Gross Revenue Retention. The Company has posted additional supplemental financial information on its website at investors.veritone.com concurrently with this press release.

Pro Forma Software Revenue represents Software Products & Services revenue on a Pro Forma basis. Non-GAAP gross profit is defined as revenue less cost of revenue. Non-GAAP gross margin is defined as Non-GAAP gross profit divided by revenue. Non-GAAP net income (loss) and Non-GAAP net income (loss) per share is the Company’s net income (loss) and net income (loss) per share, respectively, adjusted to exclude interest expense, provision for income taxes, depreciation expense, amortization expense, stock-based compensation expense, changes in fair value of warrant liability, changes in fair value of contingent consideration, a reserve for state sales taxes, charges related to a facility sublease, gain on sale of asset, warrant expense, acquisition and diligence costs, and severance and executive search costs. The items excluded from these non-GAAP financial measures, as well as a breakdown of GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss) and these excluded items between the Company’s Core Operations and Corporate, are detailed in the reconciliations included following the financial statements attached to this news release. In addition, following the financial statements attached to this news release, the Company has provided additional supplemental non-GAAP measures of operating expenses, loss from operations, other income (expense), net, and loss before income taxes, excluding the items excluded from non-GAAP net loss as noted above, and reconciling such non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures.

The Company has provided these non-GAAP financial measures and KPIs because management believes such information to be important supplemental measures of performance that are commonly used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in its industry. Management also uses this information internally for forecasting and budgeting. The non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as an alternative to revenue, net income (loss), operating income (loss) or any other financial measures so calculated and presented, nor as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of liquidity. Other companies (including the Company’s competitors) may define these non-GAAP financial measures differently. The non-GAAP financial measures may not be indicative of the historical operating results of Veritone or predictive of potential future results. Investors should not consider these non-GAAP financial measures in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s results as reported in accordance with GAAP.

In addition, the Company defines the following capitalized terms in this news release as follows:

Core Operations consists of the Company’s aiWARE operating platform of software, SaaS and related services; content licensing and advertising agency services; and their supporting operations, including direct costs of sales as well as operating expenses for sales, marketing and product development and certain general and administrative costs dedicated to these operations.

In addition, words such as “may,” “will,” “expect,” “believe,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “should,” “could,” “estimate” or “continue” or the plural, negative or other variations thereof or comparable terminology are intended to identify forward-looking statements, and any statements that refer to expectations, projections or other characterizations of future events or circumstances are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date hereof, and are based on management’s current assumptions, beliefs and information. As such, the Company’s actual results could differ materially and adversely from those expressed in any forward-looking statement as a result of various factors. Important factors that could cause such differences include, among other things, our ability to expand our aiWARE SaaS business; declines or limited growth in the market for AI-based software applications and concerns over the use of AI that may hinder the adoption of AI technologies; our requirements for additional capital to support our business growth and the availability of such capital on acceptable terms, if at all; our reliance upon a limited number of key customers for a significant portion of our revenue, including declines in key customers’ usage of our products and other offerings, our ability to realize the intended benefits of our acquisitions and divestitures, including our ability to successfully integrate our recent acquisition of Broadbean; fluctuations in our results over time; the impact of seasonality on our business; our ability to manage our growth, including through acquisitions and our further expansion into international markets; our ability to enhance our existing products and introduce new products that achieve market acceptance and keep pace with technological developments; actions by our competitors, partners and others that may block us from using the technology in our aiWARE platform, offering it for free to the public or making it cost prohibitive to continue to incorporate their technologies into our platform; interruptions, performance problems or security issues with our technology and infrastructure, or that of our third party service providers; the impact of the continuing economic disruption caused by macroeconomic and geopolitical factors, including the COVID-19 pandemic, the Russia-Ukraine conflict and related sanctions, the war in Israel, financial instability, inflation rates and the responses by central banking authorities to control inflation, monetary supply shifts and the threat of recession in the United States and around the world on our business operations and those of our existing and potential customers; the impact of future economic, competitive and market conditions, particularly those related to its strategic end markets; and future business decisions, all of which are difficult or impossible to predict accurately and many of which are beyond the control of the Company. Certain of these judgments and risks are discussed in more detail in the Company’s most recently-filed Annual Report on Form 10-K, and other periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. In light of the significant uncertainties inherent in the forward-looking information included herein, the inclusion of such information should not be regarded as a representation by the Company or any other person that the Company’s objectives or plans will be achieved.

(1) Core Operations consists of our aiWARE operating platform of software, SaaS and related services; content, licensing and advertising agency services; and their supporting operations, including direct costs of sales as well as operating expenses for sales, marketing and product development and certain general and administrative costs dedicated to these operations.

 

(2) Corporate consists of general and administrative functions such as executive, finance, legal, people operations, fixed overhead expenses (including facilities and information technology expenses), other income (expenses) and taxes, and other expenses that support the entire company, including public company driven costs.

 

(3) Contribution of business held for sale relates to the net loss for the periods presented for our energy group that we divested during Q2 2023. We have not recast Non-GAAP Net Loss for periods ended prior to March 31, 2023 because the change in business strategy to divest the business occurred in Q1 2023 and the prior period contributions were costs to operate the continuing business when incurred in the prior periods. The historical amounts would not have a major effect on prior period results.

(1) All of the supplemental financial information for this period is presented on a Pro Forma basis inclusive of Broadbean.

(2) “Software Revenue - Pro Forma” is a non-GAAP measure that represents Software Products & Services revenue on a Pro Forma basis.

(3) “Total Software Products & Services Customers” includes Software Products & Services customers as of the end of each respective quarter set forth above with net revenues in excess of $10 and also excludes any customers categorized by us as trial or pilot status. In prior periods, we provided “Ending Software Customers,” which represented Software Products & Services customers as of the end of each fiscal quarter with trailing twelve-month revenues in excess of $2,400 for both Veritone, Inc. and PandoLogic Ltd. and/or deemed by the Company to be under an active contract for the applicable periods. Total Software Products & Services Customers is not comparable to Ending Software Customers. Total Software Products & Services Customers includes customers based on revenues in the last month of the quarter rather than on a trailing twelve-month basis. Total Software Products & Services Customers includes customers based on revenues in the last month of the quarter rather than on a trailing twelve-month basis and excludes any customers that are on trial or pilot status with us rather than including customers with active contracts. Management uses Total Software Products & Services Customers and we believe Total Software Products & Services Customers are useful to investors because it more accurately reflects our total customers for our Software Products & Services customers inclusive of Broadbean.

(4) “Annual Recurring Revenue (SaaS)” represents an annualized calculation of monthly recurring revenue during the last month of the applicable quarter for all Total Software Products & Services customers, in each case on a Pro Forma basis. In prior periods, we provided “Average Annual Revenue,” which was calculated as the aggregate of trailing twelve-month Software Products & Services revenue divided by the average number of customers over the same period for both Veritone, Inc. and PandoLogic Ltd. Annual Recurring Revenue is not comparable to Average Annual Revenue (SaaS). Annual Recurring Revenue (SaaS) includes only subscription-based SaaS revenue, is not averaged among active customers and uses a calculation of recurring revenue as described above instead of annual revenue. Management uses “Annual Recurring Revenue (SaaS)” and we believe Annual Recurring Revenue (SaaS) is useful to investors because Broadbean significantly increases our mix of subscription-based SaaS revenues as compared to Consumption revenues and the split between the two allows the reader to delineate between predictable recurring SaaS revenues and more volatile Consumption revenues.

(5) “Annual Recurring Revenue (Consumption)” represents the trailing twelve months of all non-recurring and/or consumption-based revenue for all active Total Software Products & Services customers, in each case, on a Pro Forma basis. In prior periods, we provided “Average Annual Revenue,” which was calculated as the aggregate of trailing twelve-month Software Products & Services revenue divided by the average number of customers over the same period for both Veritone, Inc. and PandoLogic Ltd. Annual Recurring Revenue (Consumption) is not comparable to Average Annual Revenue. Annual Recurring Revenue (Consumption) includes only non-recurring and/or consumption-based revenue, is not averaged among active customers and uses a calculation of recurring revenue as described above instead of annual revenue. Management uses “Annual Recurring Revenue (Consumption)” and we believe Annual Recurring Revenue (Consumption) is useful to investors because Broadbean significantly increases our mix of subscription-based SaaS revenues as compared to Consumption revenues and the split between the two allows the reader to delineate between predictable recurring SaaS revenues and more volatile Consumption revenues.

(6) “Total New Bookings” represents the total fees payable during the full contract term for new contracts received in the quarter (including fees payable during any cancellable portion and an estimate of license fees that may fluctuate over the term), excluding any variable fees under the contract (e.g., fees for cognitive processing, storage, professional services and other variable services), in each case on a Pro Forma basis.

(7) “Gross Revenue Retention” represents calculate our dollar-based gross revenue retention rate as of the period end by starting with the revenue from Software Products & Services Customers as of the 3 months in the prior year quarter to such period, or Prior Year Quarter Revenue. We then deduct from the Prior Year Quarter Revenue any revenue from Software Products & Services Customers who are no longer customers as of the current period end, or Current Period Ending Software Customer Revenue. We then divide the total Current Period Ending Software Customer Revenue by the total Prior Year Quarter Revenue to arrive at our dollar-based gross retention rate, which is the percentage of revenue from all Software Products & Services Customers from our Software Products & Services as of the year prior that is not lost to customer churn. All numbers used to determine Gross Revenue Retention are calculated on a Pro Forma basis.
