red violet Announces Second Quarter 2019 Financial Results

Record Revenue of $7.2 Million Delivers Positive Cash Flow from Operating Activities

BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 5, 2019-- Red Violet, Inc. (NASDAQ: RDVT), a leading analytics and information solutions provider, today announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2019.

“We had a remarkable quarter with sequential record revenue of $7.2 million, driven by broad-based new and existing customer growth. Put simply, we are experiencing greater demand today than our current resources can accommodate,” stated Derek Dubner, red violet’s CEO. “Achieving positive adjusted EBITDA and cash flow from operations is a huge milestone for us and we are well positioned to generate free cash flow in the near term. Additionally, we see ample opportunity to further accelerate our current strong growth trajectory as we turn the corner on free cash flow and reinvest in the business, enabling us to exploit opportunities otherwise restrained by prudent cash management. There has never been a more exciting time for our business.”

Second Quarter Financial Results

For the three months ended June 30, 2019 as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2018:

  • Total revenue increased 85% to $7.2 million.
  • Net loss was $3.9 million (including share-based compensation expense of $3.6 million, which includes a one-time $2.4 million as a result of achieving certain financial milestones) as compared to $1.5 million (including share-based compensation expense of $0.0 million).
  • Loss per share was $0.37 ($0.15 excluding the one-time $2.4 million expense referenced above) as compared to $0.15.
  • Adjusted gross profit increased 130% to $4.2 million.
  • Adjusted gross margin increased to 58% from 47%.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $0.4 million as compared to a negative $1.1 million.

Second Quarter and Recent Business Highlights

  • Customer adoption of idiCORE™ has been strong with 350 new customers added to the platform in the second quarter.
  • Broad-based revenue growth from both new customer adoption and existing customer expansion. New customer revenue grew 99% and growth revenue from existing customers grew 84% over prior year.
  • FOREWARN®, our subscription app-based solution for the real estate industry, powered by CORE™, continues to see strong adoption, adding over 4,200 users in the second quarter.
  • FOREWARN was honored to be named second runner up in the 2019 Inman Innovator Awards for Most Innovative Real Estate Technology, competing against real estate technology giants including REDFIN, NRT and Zillow®.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Management evaluates the financial performance of our business on a variety of key indicators, including non-GAAP metrics of adjusted EBITDA, adjusted gross profit and adjusted gross margin. Adjusted EBITDA is a financial measure equal to net loss, the most directly comparable financial measure based on US GAAP, excluding interest income, net, depreciation and amortization, share-based compensation expense, litigation costs, net, transition service income, and write-off of long-lived assets and others, as noted in the tables below. We define adjusted gross profit as revenue less cost of revenue (exclusive of depreciation and amortization), and adjusted gross margin as adjusted gross profit as a percentage of revenue.

We present adjusted EBITDA, adjusted gross profit and adjusted gross margin as supplemental measures of our operating performance because we believe they provide useful information to our investors as they eliminate the impact of certain items that we do not consider indicative of our cash operations and ongoing operating performance. In addition, we use them as an integral part of our internal reporting to measure the performance of our business, evaluate the performance of our senior management and measure the operating strength of our business.

Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted gross profit and adjusted gross margin are measures frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in their evaluation of the operating performance of companies similar to ours and are indicators of the operational strength of our business. Adjusted EBITDA eliminates the uneven effect of considerable amounts of non-cash depreciation and amortization, share-based compensation expense and the impact of other items. Adjusted gross profit and adjusted gross margin are calculated by using cost of revenue (exclusive of depreciation and amortization).

Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted gross profit and adjusted gross margin are not intended to be performance measures that should be regarded as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, either loss before income taxes or net loss as indicators of operating performance or to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity. The way we measure adjusted EBITDA, adjusted gross profit and adjusted gross margin may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies, and may not be identical to corresponding measures used in our various agreements.

SUPPLEMENTAL METRICS

The following metrics are intended as a supplement to the financial statements found in this release and other information furnished or filed with the SEC. These supplemental metrics are not necessarily derived from any underlying financial statement amounts. We believe these supplemental metrics help investors understand trends within our business and evaluate the performance of such trends quickly and effectively. In the event of discrepancies between amounts in these tables and the Company's historical disclosures or financial statements, readers should rely on the Company's filings with the SEC and financial statements in the Company's most recent earnings release.

We intend to periodically review and refine the definition, methodology and appropriateness of each of these supplemental metrics. As a result, metrics are subject to removal and/or changes, and such changes could be material.

(1)

 

We define a billable customer of idiCORE as a single entity that generated revenue in the last month of the period. Billable customers are typically corporate organizations. In most cases, corporate organizations will have multiple users and/or departments purchasing our solutions, however, we count the entire organization as a discrete customer.

(2)

 

We define a user of FOREWARN as a unique individual that has an active user account and is able to log into FOREWARN.

(3)

 

Contractual revenue % represents revenue generated from customers pursuant to pricing contracts containing a monthly fee and any additional overage divided by total revenue. Pricing contracts are generally annual contracts or longer, with auto renewal.

(4)

 

Net revenue attrition is defined as the revenue lost as a result of customer attrition, net of reinstated customer revenue, excluding FOREWARN revenue. Revenue is measured once a customer has generated revenue for six consecutive months. Revenue is considered lost when all revenue from a customer ceases for three consecutive months; revenue generated by a customer after the three-month loss period is defined as reinstated revenue. Net revenue attrition percentage is calculated on a trailing twelve-month basis, the numerator of which is the revenue lost during the period due to attrition, net of reinstated revenue, and the denominator of which is total revenue based on an average of total revenue at the beginning of each month during the period.

(5)

 

Revenue from new customers represents the total monthly revenue generated from new customers in a given period. A customer is defined as a new customer during the first six months of revenue generation.

(6)

 

Base revenue from existing customers represents the total monthly revenue generated from existing customers in a given period that does not exceed the customers' trailing six-month average revenue. A customer is defined as an existing customer six months after their initial month of revenue.

(7)

 

Growth revenue from existing customers represents the total monthly revenue generated from existing customers in a given period in excess of the customers' trailing six-month average revenue.
