Management Commentary

“Our strong results for the second quarter and first half of 2022 demonstrate the continued execution of our strategy to grow our cloud business and scale our SaaS revenue base,” said Qumu President and CEO Rose Bentley. “Highlighting our success in Q2 was a 10% increase in both SaaS revenue and SaaS ARR, putting us well on track to achieve our SaaS growth targets for 2022 and 2023. Our cloud transformation initiatives and increased SaaS contributions also helped produce a robust gross margin of 75.4% in Q2, a level we expect to build on as SaaS becomes a greater portion of our overall topline.”

Qumu CFO Tom Krueger commented: “Qumu’s improving financial performance and strong SaaS KPIs reflect the increasing success and momentum of our partner-led sales strategy as well as our current customers growing their investment. In fact, in Q2 we added new customers at twice the rate of Q1 and more than 80% of new bookings in the first half of 2022 were sourced or influenced by our partners. Additionally, over the last 12 months, our customers have added 51% more authorized users to our platform, and we have seen an increase of asynchronous video views increase by over 30%. The growing investment from our customers is exemplified by our average annual contract value increasing by 474% in the first half of 2022. Triple-digit growth in contract size demonstrates our ability to deliver greater value through additional use cases when we acquire new customers. As we continue to grow our cloud business, build our partner ecosystem, and further transition to a purely subscription-based model, we expect our financial performance to improve throughout 2022 and beyond.”

Bentley continued: “Overall, Qumu’s transformation is well underway, and our past investments are yielding strong returns. Our business is optimized and now hitting its stride. Our plan is supported by a solid cash position and available resources that provide sufficient runway to execute our growth strategy. We entered Q3 with a record pipeline of opportunities that we are converting at an escalating pace. Our partner-led sales strategy is gaining momentum and creating repeatable sales motions that give us confidence in our ability to secure a record number of new logos in 2022.

“Looking ahead we continue to expect our SaaS recurring revenue as a percentage of our total recurring revenue to be at least 65% by the end of 2022 and 75% by the end of 2023. We also continue to expect to crossover to cash flow breakeven in 2023. We remain confident Qumu will emerge as a 100% subscription company operating at scale, benefiting from high-margin recurring revenues, growing cash flow and adjusted EBITDA and net income profitability.”

Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Revenue for Q2 2022 was $5.1 million, compared to $4.9 million in Q1 2022 and $5.9 million in Q2 2021. The year-over-year decrease was due to the company’s strategic shift away from perpetual license sales, and the related maintenance revenue, and toward SaaS sales.

Service revenue for Q2 2022 was $4.9 million, compared to $4.8 million in Q1 2022 and $5.7 million in Q2 2021. The year-over-year decrease resulted from customer contracts sunsetting, which impacted maintenance revenue associated with the company’s on-premise solution. Subscription and support revenue, which is included in service revenue and comprises the company's SaaS revenue, was $2.8 million for Q2 2022, compared to $2.7 million in Q1 2022 and $2.5 million in Q2 2021. The company expects subscription revenue will continue to grow as Qumu executes on its cloud transformation strategy.

Gross margin in Q2 2022 was 75.4%, compared to gross margin of 71.5% for Q1 2022 and 73.6% for Q2 2021. The gross margin percentage improved due primarily to better margins on SaaS revenue recognized in Q2 2022 compared to Q1 2022 and to a higher percentage of SaaS revenue contributing to the overall sales mix compared to Q2 2021.

Net loss in Q2 2022 totaled $(2.6) million, or $(0.15) loss per basic and diluted share. This compares to net loss of $(4.6) million, or $(0.26) loss per basic and diluted share, for Q1 2022 and net loss of $(4.3) million, or $(0.24) loss per basic share and $(0.30) loss per diluted share, in Q2 2021.

Adjusted EBITDA loss, a non-GAAP measure, in Q2 2022 was $(3.1) million, compared to $(4.1) million in Q1 2022 and $(4.5) million in Q2 2021.

As of June 30, 2022, the company had cash and cash equivalents of $6.4 million.

Business Outlook

Qumu provides guidance based on current market conditions and expectations. The company emphasizes that its guidance is subject to various important cautionary factors referenced in the section entitled “Forward-Looking Statements” below, including risks and uncertainties associated with the company’s strategic plan, transition to SaaS recurring revenue through channel partners, and the COVID-19 pandemic, such as trends in distributed remote and hybrid work impacting enterprise technology adoption and procurement.

To give insight into the progress of Qumu’s SaaS business transformation, the company provides a business outlook based on the percentage of recurring revenue comprised of SaaS revenue. Qumu’s management reiterated its expectation that SaaS recurring revenue will comprise approximately 65% of its overall recurring revenue mix by the end of 2022, with targeted growth to approximately 75% of recurring revenue mix by the end of 2023.

Non-GAAP Information

To supplement the company's condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, the company uses Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, which excludes certain items from net loss, a GAAP measure. Adjusted EBITDA excludes items related to interest income and expense, the impact of income-based taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, change in fair value of derivative and warrant liabilities, foreign currency gains and losses, Employee Retention Credit income and other non-operating income and expenses.

The company uses both GAAP and non-GAAP measures when planning, monitoring, and evaluating the company’s performance. The company believes that Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors because it provides supplemental information that allows investors to review the company's results of operations from the same perspective as management and the company's board of directors. Non-GAAP results are presented for supplemental informational purposes only for understanding our operating results. The non-GAAP results should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

See the attached Supplemental Financial Information for a reconciliation of net loss, a GAAP measure, to Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021.
