Sponsored by Businesswire

Veritone, Inc. (NASDAQ: VERI), a leading provider of artificial intelligence (AI) technology and solutions, today reported results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2019.

“The Veritone team delivered better than expected results in the fourth quarter of 2019, with strength in aiWARE SaaS and Advertising offsetting the normal seasonal softness in content licensing,” said Chad Steelberg, CEO and Chairman of Veritone. “The business realignment we implemented in November is already yielding streamlined product development and improved customer engagement, and our initiatives to improve margins, reduce costs and accelerate our path toward profitability are ahead of schedule and tracking to the high end of our expectations. We are off to a strong start in 2020, and our pipeline of new opportunities leads us to expect solid growth this year across all of our businesses.”

Ryan Steelberg, President of Veritone, said, “In the fourth quarter, we posted record net revenues in both aiWARE SaaS and Advertising, which were up 18% to $2.9 million and up 9% to $6.5 million, respectively, on a year-over-year basis. Our SaaS bookings continued to reach all-time highs, with several of our license agreements now extending over multiple years. Our Advertising business has continued its strong momentum so far in 2020, with a number of customer renewals and expansions in addition to new business, and we expect our recently launched VeriAds offering to accelerate the revenue growth and cash generation in this business throughout this year as it continues to develop. In addition, we plan to continue to expand our content licensing business, both through increased licensing of our existing content libraries and the addition of new libraries. We are pleased with our progress to date on our more streamlined and targeted approach to growing our business. More than ever, we believe that our business realignment and recent enhancements to aiWARE will accelerate our long-term revenue growth and cash flow improvement.”

Fourth Quarter 2019 Financial Highlights:

  • Net revenues grew 14% to $12.4 million, compared with $10.9 million in Q4 of 2018.
  • aiWARE SaaS net revenues increased 22% sequentially and 18% year-over-year to a record $2.9 million.
  • Advertising net revenues reached a record $6.5 million, compared with $6.3 million in Q3 of 2019 and $6.0 million in Q4 of 2018.
  • Loss before income taxes decreased $1.5 million, and Adjusted EBITDAS loss decreased $1.6 million, compared with Q3 of 2019.
  • Cash and cash equivalents totaled $44.1 million at December 31, 2019.

Recent Business Highlights:

  • Recorded initial aiWARE SaaS revenues from the U.S. Department of Justice in Q4 of 2019, enabled by the Company’s FedRAMP authorization for its aiWARE Government platform.
  • Posted record aiWARE SaaS bookings in Q4 of 2019.
  • Received approved 2020 media plans from Advertising clients that would represent the highest annual level of ad spending in the Company’s history.
  • Signed a SaaS license agreement with Bell Media, covering the use of aiWARE by over 35 of their radio and television stations in Canada.
  • Accelerated engagement with Government, Legal & Compliance customers for the Company’s Identify, Redact and Illuminate applications, with over 50 active customers today.

Fourth Quarter 2019 Financial Results:

Net revenues were $12.4 million, compared with $10.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2018. This was comprised of $2.9 million from aiWARE SaaS solutions, $3.1 million from aiWARE content licensing and media services, and $6.5 million from Advertising.

Operating expenses decreased 10% to $23.0 million, compared with $25.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, due to acquisition-related earnout and other expenses recorded in the prior year quarter and the savings associated with the cost reduction initiatives that were implemented in November 2019.

Loss from operations improved $3.4 million to $14.6 million, compared with $18.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Net loss totaled $14.9 million, or $0.61 per share, compared with $17.8 million, or $0.92 per share, in the fourth quarter of 2018. Non-GAAP net loss was $8.1 million, or $0.33 per share, compared with $9.3 million, or $0.48 per share, in the fourth quarter of 2018. The lower net loss was due primarily to the increase in net revenues and the impact of the operating expense reductions described above.

Adjusted EBITDAS, a non-GAAP financial measure, totaled a loss of $8.1 million, compared with a loss of $9.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, also reflecting the increase in net revenues and the positive impact of the Company’s cost reduction initiatives.

Cash: As of December 31, 2019, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $44.1 million, including $15.0 million of cash received from Advertising clients for future payments to vendors, and no long-term debt. During the fourth quarter, the Company raised net proceeds of $6.8 million through the issuance of 2.4 million shares of its common stock under the ATM facility established in the second quarter of 2018.

Full Year 2019 Financial Results:

Net revenues were $49.6 million, compared with $27.0 million in 2018. 2019 net revenues were comprised of $10.7 million from aiWARE SaaS solutions, $14.6 million from aiWARE content licensing and media services, and $24.4 million from Advertising. The Company’s acquisitions in the third quarter of 2018 contributed $25.0 million of net revenues in 2019, compared with $7.0 million in 2018. Excluding the impact of these acquisitions, aiWARE SaaS net revenues grew 47%, and Advertising net revenues grew 16%, compared with 2018.

Operating expenses were $96.4 million, compared with $82.6 million in 2018. The increase was due primarily to the addition of approximately $8.7 million of operating expenses of the businesses acquired in the third quarter of 2018, approximately $5.2 million of additional stock-based compensation expense, and approximately $2.2 million of depreciation and amortization of intangibles linked to those acquisitions. These increases were offset by reductions in professional fees, due primarily to fees incurred in connection with the 2018 acquisitions that did not recur, and in other costs.

Loss from operations was $64.1 million, compared with $62.0 million in 2018.

Net loss totaled $62.1 million, or $2.85 per share, compared with $61.1 million, or $3.48 per share, in 2018. Non-GAAP net loss was $36.2 million, or $1.66 per share, compared with $39.0 million, or $2.22 per share, in 2018.

Adjusted EBITDAS, a non-GAAP financial measure, totaled a loss of $36.2 million, compared with a loss of $39.0 million for 2018.

Business Outlook:

For the first quarter ending March 31, 2020, management expects total net revenues to be in the range of $12.5 million to $12.9 million, driven by increases in the Company’s content licensing businesses, and expects non-GAAP net loss to be in the range of $7.6 million to $7.2 million.

About the Presentation of Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Information

In this news release, the Company has supplemented its results and outlook for certain financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) with certain non-GAAP financial measures: “Non-GAAP net loss,” “Non-GAAP net loss per share,” and “Adjusted EBITDAS.” Non-GAAP net loss is the company’s net loss, adjusted to exclude provision for (benefit from) income taxes, depreciation, amortization, and stock-based compensation expenses, and certain acquisition, integration, severance and financing-related costs. Adjusted EBITDAS is defined as earnings before provision for (benefit from) income taxes, interest expense, depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation expenses, adjusted to exclude certain acquisition, integration, severance and financing-related costs. Adjusted EBITDAS should not be considered as an alternative to 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. The items excluded from Non-GAAP net loss and Adjusted EBITDAS are detailed in the reconciliations included following the financial statements attached to this news release. Other companies (including the Company’s competitors) may define Non-GAAP net loss and/or Adjusted EBITDAS differently.

In addition, following the financial statements attached to this news release, the Company has provided additional supplemental non-GAAP measures of gross profit, operating expenses, loss from operations, other income, 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 applicable GAAP measures.

The Company presents this supplemental non-GAAP financial information 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. These non-GAAP measures may not be indicative of the historical operating results of Veritone or predictive of potential future results. Investors should not consider this supplemental non-GAAP financial information in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s results as reported in accordance with GAAP.
