NEW YORK, Aug. 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Taboola (Nasdaq: TBLA), a global leader in powering recommendations for the open web, helping people discover things they may like, today announced its results for the quarter ended June 30, 2022.

“Our second quarter performance exceeded our high end of guidance and included ex-TAC gross profit growth of 22.5%. These impressive results, in a challenging macro environment, reinforce the strength of our model that is centered on long-term exclusive publisher partnerships and performance advertiser success. We are holding our full year 2022 guidance and prioritizing investments and taking actions to ensure solid profitability and free cash flow,” said Adam Singolda, Founder and CEO, Taboola.

“This year we are seeing near record level new publisher signings, including a large number of competitive wins all around the world, exponential growth in Taboola News and the launch of exciting new products like Homepage For You and our new bidder. Our progress in 2022 will drive strong positive momentum into 2023 and beyond as we strive to place Taboola in the same league as successful walled garden companies such as Google, Amazon and Facebook. Our biggest focus areas that will ensure we succeed are in e-commerce, performance advertising and optimizing our bidder,” continued Singolda.

For more commentary on the quarter, please refer to Taboola’s Q2 2022 Shareholder Letter, which was furnished to the SEC and also posted on Taboola’s website today at https://investors.taboola.com.

  • Taboola News’ growth rate is triple digits and on track to exceed $50 million in revenues this year.

  • Announced acquisition of Gravity R&D, a leading personalization technology company, for approximately $7 million.

  • Entered into a $90 million five-year senior secured revolving credit facility, with Citibank, N.A., London Branch, as lead arranger and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent.

1New digital property partners within the first 12 months that were live on our network.

2Net growth of existing digital property partners, including the growth of new digital property partners (beyond the revenue contribution determined based on the run-rate revenue generated by them when they are first on-boarded).

Third Quarter and Full Year 2022 Guidance

For the Third Quarter 2022, the Company currently expects:

  • Revenues of $311 to $331 million

  • Gross Profit of $91 to $101 million

  • ex-TAC Gross Profit of $120 to $130 million

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $11 to $17 million

  • Non-GAAP Net Income (loss) of ($8) to ($2) million

For the Full Year 2022, the Company currently expects:

Although we provide guidance for Adjusted EBITDA and Non-GAAP Net Income, we are not able to provide guidance for projected net income (loss), the most directly comparable GAAP measure. Certain elements of net income (loss), including share-based compensation expenses and warrant valuations, are not predictable due to the high variability and difficulty of making accurate forecasts. As a result, it is impractical for us to provide guidance on net income (loss) or to reconcile our Adjusted EBITDA and Non-GAAP Net Income guidance without unreasonable efforts. Consequently, no disclosure of projected net income (loss) is included. For the same reasons, we are unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information.

Our guidance assumes continuing headwinds from the war in Ukraine, inflation, currency exchange rates and overall macroeconomic weakness, which lead us to adopt a conservative stance on guidance. Our guidance assumes that these headwinds do not worsen and cause economic conditions to deteriorate or otherwise significantly reduce advertiser demand.

*About Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release includes ex-TAC Gross Profit, ex-TAC Gross Profit growth on a constant currency basis, Adjusted EBITDA, Ratio of Adjusted EBITDA to ex-TAC Gross Profit, Free Cash Flow, Non-GAAP Net Income, Non-GAAP EPS basic and diluted and IPO Pro forma Non-GAAP EPS basic and diluted, which are non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are not measures of financial performance in accordance with GAAP and may exclude items that are significant in understanding and assessing the Company’s financial results. Therefore, these measures should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to revenues, gross profit, net loss, cash flows from operations or other measures of profitability, liquidity or performance under GAAP. You should be aware that the Company’s presentation of these measures may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures used by other companies.

This quarter the Company is introducing certain constant currency information, which is a non-GAAP metric. The Company believes the inclusion of constant currency information is useful because it permits investors to better understand Taboola’s underlying performance without the effects of currency exchange rate fluctuations. The Company calculates constant currency by using the prior period’s currency exchange rates and applying them to current period results.

The Company believes non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information to management and investors regarding future financial and business trends relating to the Company. The Company believes that the use of these measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating operating results and trends and in comparing the Company’s financial measures with other similar companies, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. Non-GAAP financial measures are subject to inherent limitations because they reflect the exercise of judgments by management about which items are excluded or included in calculating them, which may vary from period to period. Please refer to the appendix at the end of this press release for reconciliations to the most directly comparable measures in accordance with GAAP.

**About Pro Forma With Connexity Information

This press release includes historical and projected pro forma information for ex-TAC Gross Profit. The pro forma information presents the pro forma effect of the Connexity acquisition as if it had been completed on January 1, 2021. The pro forma information is unaudited, is provided as supplemental information only and is subject to the limitations contained under the heading “Unaudited Pro Forma Condensed Combined Financial Information” in our Prospectus forming part of our Registration Statement on Form F-1/A filed on April 13, 2022, as it may be amended from time to time, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

2 Represents share based compensation due to holdback of Taboola ordinary shares issuable under compensatory arrangements relating to Connexity acquisition.

We calculate Ratio of net loss to gross profit as net loss divided by gross profit. We calculate the Ratio of Adjusted EBITDA to ex-TAC Gross Profit, a non-GAAP measure, as Adjusted EBITDA divided by ex-TAC Gross Profit. We believe that the Ratio of Adjusted EBITDA to ex-TAC Gross Profit is useful because TAC is what we must pay digital properties to obtain the right to place advertising on their websites, and we believe focusing on ex-TAC Gross Profit better reflects the profitability of our business. The following table reconciles Ratio of net loss to gross profit and Ratio of Adjusted EBITDA to ex-TAC Gross Profit for the period shown.
