Phunware Announces Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results

AUSTIN, TX, August 14, 2020 (ORIGINAL: BUSINESS WIRE) – Phunware, Inc. (NASDAQ: PHUN) (the “Company”), a fully-integrated enterprise cloud platform for mobile that provides products, solutions, data and services for brands worldwide, today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2020, and provided an update on recent business developments.

“Independent of the ongoing pandemic, we continue executing our operational model and business strategy to become the premier digital transformation source for mobile initiatives worldwide,” said Alan S. Knitowski, President, CEO and Co-Founder of Phunware. ”Our latest quarter closed with nearly $10 million in Backlog and Deferred Revenue for our Multiscreen-as-a-Service (MaaS) platform, while most of our corporate customers remained in either a lockdown or remote, work-from-home operational status. While we do not expect our customers or partners to be back to normal operations until a COVID-19 vaccine becomes widely available, we are already seeing much more business activity with each passing week and month and believe that there is a lot of pent up demand tied to pending MaaS bookings that will be released throughout the balance of the year.”
Notably, the Company expects an acceleration of Net Revenues total for both the coming quarter and the balance of the year sequentially, and also believes that the most recent quarter represents a quarterly, annual and historic bottom for its revenue recognition as a public company.
Second Quarter 2020 Summary Financial Highlights
Net Revenues for the quarter totaled $2.2 million
Platform Subscriptions and Services Revenues were $2.0 million
Gross Margin was 65.3%
Net Loss was ($3.5) million
Net Loss per Share was ($0.08)
Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA Loss was ($1.8) million
“As we manage through the uncertainty of the ongoing pandemic, we are encouraged that we have been able to position ourselves for success in the future by strengthening our balance sheet and lowering our operational expenses,” said Matt Aune, CFO of Phunware. “In addition to our efforts reducing operational expense, we are pleased to see an improvement of nearly 1,500 basis points to year-over-year gross margin as we continue to focus on our higher margin longer term software customers.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Reconciliation
Adjusted EBITDA should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States (“GAAP”). It is not a measurement of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss), as applicable, or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other businesses. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our operating results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations include: (i) Non-cash compensation is and will remain a key element of our overall long-term incentive compensation package, although we exclude it as an expense when evaluating its ongoing operating performance for a particular period, (ii) Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the impact of certain charges resulting from matters we consider not to be indicative of ongoing operations, and (iii) other companies in our industry may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.
We compensate for these limitations to Adjusted EBITDA by relying primarily on its GAAP results and using Adjusted EBITDA only for supplemental purposes. Adjusted EBITDA includes adjustments for items that may not occur in future periods. However, we believe these adjustments are appropriate because the amounts recognized can vary significantly from period to period, do not directly relate to the ongoing operations of our business and complicate comparisons of our internal operating results and operating results of other peer companies over time. Each of the normal recurring adjustments and other adjustments described in this paragraph help management with a measure of our operating performance over time by removing items that are not related to day-to-day operations or are non-cash expenses.
