  • GAAP gross margin was 44% for the fiscal first quarter of 2021, as compared to 39% in the fiscal first quarter of 2020.  Non-GAAP adjusted gross margin4 was 45% for the fiscal first quarter of 2021, as compared to 40% in the fiscal first quarter of 2020.
  • The Company's Application Media software was installed on more than 43 million devices during the fiscal first quarter, and now been installed on more than 450 million devices to date.

"Our fiscal first quarter was a breakout quarter for Digital Turbine", said Bill Stone, CEO.  "Positive momentum trends throughout the business drove better-than-expected results and have the Company well-positioned for continued strong performance going forward. Advertisers are actively allocating spend toward platforms that offer directly measurable results, and our business is a clear beneficiary of this trend, particularly given the higher conversion rates generated by our platform as businesses and consumers everywhere are increasingly engaging with applications and mobile content as part of their daily routines." 

"In particular, I was pleased with our ability to grow top-line results while showcasing the inherent operating leverage of our platform that simultaneously expands the bottom line. We are growing revenues significantly with newer partners and products thus far in fiscal 2021.  We achieved new highs for the percentage of total revenue derived with international partners and revenue derived from life-of-device and content-themed products in the fiscal first quarter.  We have just launched our first cross-sell opportunity from the Mobile Posse acquisition and remain highly optimistic about the potential to capitalize on additional cross-selling opportunities across our Application and Content businesses as the year progresses.  In addition, new over-the-top ("OTT") TV relationships will enable us to strategically extend our platform beyond smartphones to additional screens."

Mr. Stone concluded, "I want to express my considerable gratitude for the entire Digital Turbine team.  I couldn't be more proud of our employees for the way that they have banded together, both professionally and socially, during the most challenging of times, to not only successfully navigate the rapidly evolving business conditions of today, but also for their dedicated commitment to continue to innovate the Digital Turbine platform in ways that will benefit our loyal partners, our platform advertisers, our local communities and our supportive shareholders in the future."

First Quarter Fiscal 2021 Financial Results

Results for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 include the results of the Mobile Posse operations, which was acquired on February 28, 2020.  Total revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 was $59.0 million, representing an increase of 93% year-over-year. Application Media revenue totaled $44.2 million in the quarter, while Content Media revenue was $14.8 million.

GAAP gross margin was 44% for the first quarter of fiscal 2021, as compared to a 39% GAAP gross margin in the first quarter of fiscal 2020.  Non-GAAP adjusted gross margin4 was 45% for the first quarter of fiscal 2021, as compared to 40% for the first quarter of fiscal 2020.

GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 was $9.9 million, or $0.11 per share, as compared to a GAAP net loss from continuing operations for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 of $1.7 million, or ($0.02) per share.  Non-GAAP adjusted net income1 for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 was $12.5 million, or $0.13 per share, as compared to Non-GAAP adjusted net income of $4.2 million, or $0.05 per share, during the first quarter of fiscal 2020.

Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA2 was $14.1 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2021, as compared to Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA of $4.2 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2020. The reconciliations between GAAP and Non-GAAP financial results for all referenced periods are provided in the tables immediately following the Unaudited Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows below.

Business Outlook

Based on information available as of August 5, 2020, the Company currently expects the following for its fiscal second quarter:

  • Revenue of between $59 million and $61 million
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA of between $11 million and $12 million
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted EPS of between $0.11 and $0.12, based on approximately 95 million diluted shares outstanding

It is not reasonably practicable to provide a business outlook for GAAP net income/(loss) from continuing operations because the Company cannot reasonably estimate the changes in stock-based compensation expense, which is directly impacted by changes in the Company's stock price, or other items that are difficult to predict with precision.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement the Company's 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 net income and earnings per share ("EPS"), non-GAAP adjusted gross profit, non-GAAP adjusted 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 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 associated with warrants issued in connection with the September 2016 convertible notes offering, loss on extinguishment of debt, tax adjustments and transaction expenses.  Readers are cautioned that Non-GAAP adjusted net income 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: net interest income/(expense), foreign exchange transaction loss, income tax provision, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangibles, the change in fair value of derivatives associated with warrants issued in connection with the September 2016 convertible notes offering, other expense, loss on extinguishment of debt, non-recurring severance expense and transaction expenses.  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 free cash flow, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, is defined as net cash provided by operating activities (as stated in our 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 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.

4Non-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. 

Non-GAAP adjusted gross profit and gross margin, Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP adjusted net income 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 Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. 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:

  • a decline in general economic conditions nationally and internationally

  • the ability to protect our intellectual property rights
  • risks associated with adoption of our platform among existing customers (including the impact of possible delays with major carrier and OEM partners in the roll out for mobile phones deploying our platform)
  • actual mobile device sales and sell-through where our platform is deployed is out of our control
  • risks associated with our ability to manage the business amid the COVID-19 pandemic
  • the impact of COVID-19 on our partners, digital advertising spend and consumer purchase behavior
  • the impact of COVID-19 on our results of operations

  • risks associated with the timing of our platform 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 our platform
  • 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 our platform slots across US carrier partners
  • required customization and technical integration which may slow down time to revenue notwithstanding the existence of a distribution agreement
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • risks and uncertainties associated with the integration of the acquisition of Mobile Posse, including our ability to realize the anticipated benefits of the acquisition and the satisfaction of related earnout provisions
  • 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.
