With our increasing confidence and improving visibility into our continued growth, we are raising our full year guidance.”

Our go to market strategy and partner relationships are maturing, as we continue to expand the penetration of existing accounts and land new accounts in new markets. We delivered strong growth across the board, notably SaaS revenue grew by 86% year-over-year and achieved its largest bookings quarter ever. Having established strong momentum in the first six months of the year, we expect to build upon that going forward.”

Financial Results for Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2021

Revenue was a record $19.2 million, compared with $13.3 million in the second quarter of 2020. The growth reflects a 86% increase in aiWARE SaaS Solutions, including strong growth from the Company’s M&E and GLC services; a 42% increase in Advertising driven by higher gross billings at VeritoneOne and growth in our VeriAds Network and an 13% increase in aiWARE Content Licensing and Media Services. Gross profit increased 47% year over year to $14.0 million, compared with $9.5 million in the second quarter of 2020, driven largely by the revenue growth in aiWARE SaaS Solutions and Advertising.

GAAP net loss was $12.7 million, compared with a GAAP net loss of $11.8 million in the second quarter of 2020. Non-GAAP net loss was $3.9 million, improving $1.8 million year-over-year compared with $5.7 million in the second quarter of 2020. This was driven by the $1.9 million improvement in Core Operations, which reported Q2 2021 non-GAAP net income of $1.4 million, up from Q2 2020 non-GAAP net loss of $0.5 million reflecting higher gross margins offset by greater operating expenses to support the Company’s growth.

As of June 30, 2021, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $120.6 million, including $48.2 million of cash received from Advertising clients for future payments to vendors, and no long-term debt.

About the Presentation of Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Information

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: “gross profit,” “Non-GAAP net loss,” and “Non-GAAP net loss per share.” Gross profit is the Company’s revenue less its cost of revenue. Non-GAAP net loss is the Company’s net loss, adjusted to exclude interest expense, provision for income taxes, depreciation expense, amortization expense, stock-based compensation expense, 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. Non-GAAP net loss 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, as well as a breakdown of GAAP net 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. Other companies (including the Company’s competitors) may define Non-GAAP net loss differently.

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. Corporate principally 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.

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 (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 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.

Safe Harbor Statement

This news release contains forward-looking statements, including without limitation statements regarding the Company’s expectations regarding its rapidly growing pipeline of business, the Company’s expected total revenue and Non-GAAP net loss in the third quarter and full year of 2021, and the Company’s expected year-over-year growth in aiWARE SaaS Solutions revenue for full year 2021. 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, the pending acquisition of PandoLogic, the impact of the economic disruption caused by COVID-19 pandemic on the business of the Company and that of its existing and potential customers; the Company’s ability to achieve broad recognition and customer acceptance of its products and services; the Company’s ability to continue to develop and add additional capabilities and features to its aiWARE operating system; the development of the market for cognitive analytics solutions; the ability of third parties to develop and provide additional high quality, relevant machine learning models and applications; the Company’s ability to successfully identify and integrate such additional third-party models and applications onto its aiWARE operating system, and to continue to be able to access and utilize such models and applications, and the cost thereof; as well as 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 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.
