AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 7, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital Turbine, Inc. (Nasdaq: APPS) announced financial results for the fiscal third quarter ended December 31, 2023.

Recent Financial Highlights:

  • Fiscal third quarter of 2024 revenue totaled $142.6 million, representing a year-over-year decline of 12% as compared to the fiscal third quarter of 2023.
  • GAAP net loss for the fiscal third quarter of 2024 was $14.1 million, or ($0.14) per share, as compared to GAAP net income for the fiscal third quarter of 2023 of $4.1 million, or $0.04 per share.
  • Non-GAAP adjusted net income1 for the fiscal third quarter of 2024 was $15.6 million, or $0.15 per share, as compared to Non-GAAP adjusted net income1 of $30.2 million, or $0.29 per share, in the fiscal third quarter of 2023.
  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA2 for the fiscal third quarter of 2024 was $25.4 million, as compared to Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA2 of $40.0 million in the fiscal third quarter of 2023.
  • Net cash provided by operating activities in the fiscal third quarter of 2024 was $11.7 million. Non-GAAP free cash flow3 in the fiscal third quarter of 2024 was $14.3 million. The Company reduced its long-term debt balance by $9.8 million to $374.0 million as of the end of the fiscal third quarter of 2024, as compared to $383.8 million as of the end of the fiscal second quarter of 2024.

"Weaker U.S. device upgrade rates and temporary platform consolidation factors represent near-term headwinds, but in no way impact our broader outlook on the tremendous market opportunity in front of us, particularly with respect to the prevailing winds of change in the alternative app distribution world," said Bill Stone, CEO. "Recent regulatory and legislative news, along with the soon-to-be-effective Digital Markets Act in the European Union, are drawing global operators, OEMs, and app publishers to our advantageously positioned direct distribution platform offerings.  We are making positive progress in this area, inclusive of key strategic investments, and look forward to converting this progress into future growth for the Company in calendar 2024 and beyond."

Fiscal 2024 Third Quarter Financial Results

Total revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2024 was $142.6 million. Total On Device Solutions revenue before intercompany eliminations was $94.3 million. Total App Growth Platform revenue before intercompany eliminations was $49.2 million.

GAAP net loss for the third quarter of fiscal 2024 was $14.1 million, or ($0.14) per share, as compared to GAAP net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2023 of $4.1 million, or $0.04 per share.

Non-GAAP adjusted net income1 for the third quarter of fiscal 2024 was $15.6 million, or $0.15 per share, as compared to Non-GAAP adjusted net income1 of $30.2 million, or $0.29 per share in the third quarter of fiscal 2023.

Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA2 for the third quarter of fiscal 2024 was $25.4 million, as compared to Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA2 for the third quarter of fiscal 2023 of $40.0 million.

Business Outlook

Based on information available as of February 7, 2024, and considering the ongoing uncertainties in the macro environment, the Company currently expects the following for the full-year fiscal 2024:

  • Revenue of between $547 million and $553 million
  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA2 of between $90 million and $94 million
  • Non-GAAP adjusted EPS1 of between $0.50 and $0.54, based on approximately 104 million diluted shares outstanding and an effective tax rate of 25% on Non-GAAP adjusted net income1

It is not reasonably practicable to provide a business outlook for GAAP net income 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 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 EBITDA, non-GAAP free cash flow and non-GAAP gross profit. 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 and EPS adjusted to exclude the effect of stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangibles, business transformation costs, transaction-related expenses and severance costs. 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 excluding the following cash and non-cash expenses: stock-based compensation expense, depreciation and amortization, net interest income (expense), net other income (expense), business transformation costs, foreign exchange transaction gains (losses), income tax (benefit) provision, transaction-related expenses and severance costs. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA margin is calculated as non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of total revenue. Readers are cautioned that non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an alternative to net income 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 Statements of Cash Flows), excluding transaction-related expenses, severance costs and business transformation costs, 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 gross profit is defined as GAAP income from operations adjusted to exclude the effect of product development costs, sales and marketing costs, general and administrative costs and depreciation of software. Readers are cautioned that non-GAAP gross profit should not be construed as an alternative to income from operations 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 EBITDA, non-GAAP adjusted net income and EPS, non-GAAP free cash flow and non-GAAP gross profit are used by management as internal measures of profitability and performance. 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.

  • Adverse effects of negative developments affecting the financial services industry, including events or concerns involving liquidity, defaults, or non-performance by financial institutions.

Risks Related to the Mobile Advertising Industry

  • The mobile advertising business is an intensely competitive industry, and we may not be able to compete successfully.
  • The markets for our products and services are rapidly evolving and may decline or experience limited growth.
  • Our business is dependent on the continued growth in usage of smartphones and other mobile connected devices.
  • Wireless technologies are changing rapidly, and we may not be successful in working with these new technologies.
  • The complexity of and incompatibilities among mobile devices may require us to use additional resources for the development of our products and services.
  • If wireless subscribers do not continue to use their mobile devices to access mobile content and other applications, our business growth and future revenue may be adversely affected.
  • A shift of technology platform by wireless carriers and mobile device manufacturers could lengthen the development period for our offerings, increase our costs, and cause our offerings to be published later than anticipated.
  • Actual or perceived security vulnerabilities in devices or wireless networks could adversely affect our revenue.
  • We may be subject to legal liability associated with providing mobile and online services.
  • Risks of public health issues, such as a major epidemic or pandemic.

  • Risks associated with the ongoing conflicts in Ukraine and Israel have caused, and are currently expected to cause, negative effects on geopolitical conditions and the global economy, including financial markets, inflation, and the global supply chain, which could have an adverse impact on our business, operating results and financial condition, especially given our significant business presence in the region.
  • Risk related to the geopolitical relationship between the U.S. and China or changes in China's economic and regulatory landscape.

Industry Regulatory Risks

  • We are subject to rapidly changing and increasingly stringent laws, regulations and contractual requirements related to privacy, data security, and protection of children.
  • We are subject to anti-corruption, import/export, government sanction, and similar laws, especially related to our international operations.

  • Our platform contains open source software.
  • Litigation may harm out business.
  • Indemnity provisions in various agreements potentially expose us to substantial liability for intellectual property infringement, damages caused by malicious software, and other losses.

Risks Relating to Our Common Stock and Capital Structure

  • We have secured and unsecured indebtedness, which could limit our financial flexibility.
  • To service our debt and fund our other obligations and capital requirements, we will require a significant amount of cash, and our ability to generate cash will depend on many factors beyond our control.
  • The market price of our common stock is likely to be highly volatile and subject to wide fluctuations, and you may be unable to resell your shares at or above the current price or the price at which you purchased your shares.
  • Risk of not being able to raise capital to grow our business.
  • Risk to trading volume of lack of securities or industry analysts research coverage.
  • We have identified a material weakness in our internal control over financial reporting and disclosure controls and procedures which could, if not remediated, result in additional material misstatements in our financial statements.
  • Maintaining and improvising financial controls and being a public company may strain resources.
  • Anti-takeover provisions in our charter documents could make an acquisition of our company more difficult.
  • Our bylaws designate Delaware as the exclusive forum for certain disputes.
  • Other risks described in the risk factors in Item 1A of our latest Annual Report on Form 10-K under the heading "Risk Factors" and subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
