Avid Technology Announces Q2 2022 Results

Subscription Revenue of $34.1M, an Increase of 58.7% Year-Over-Year, Driven by Increase of Cloud-Enabled Software Subscriptions to Over 450,300

Annual Recurring Revenue of $231.0M, an Increase of 14.1% Year-Over-Year

Net Income per Common Share of $0.16 and Non-GAAP Earnings per Share of $0.26, an Increase of 4.0% Year-Over-Year

BURLINGTON, Mass., Aug. 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Avid� (NASDAQ: AVID), a leading technology provider that powers the media and entertainment industry, today announced its financial results for the second quarter of 2022, which ended on June 30, 2022.

Total revenue increased 3.0% year-over-year in the second quarter, led by strong subscription growth, offset by continuing macro supply chain challenges that impacted the Company�s ability to ship a significant amount of the orders received for integrated solutions during the first half of 2022. During the second quarter, the recurring components of the Company�s business remained strong with subscription revenue of $34.1 million, up 58.7% year-over-year, and subscription & maintenance revenue of $61.9 million, up 19.2% year-over-year.

The revenue growth, combined with improved gross margin, resulted in Non-GAAP Earnings per Share of $0.26.

Jeff Rosica, Avid�s Chief Executive Officer and President, stated, �We are pleased by the continued growth from our subscription software business and continued healthy demand for our products during the second quarter.� Mr. Rosica continued, �We delivered year-over-year revenue and earnings growth in the second quarter despite having over $20 million of contractually committed orders for integrated solutions at the end of June that had not shipped in the first half due to the continued global supply chain challenges. We expect that supply chain conditions will gradually improve in the second half of 2022, resulting in favorable year-over-year growth and improved profitability in full-year 2022.�

Ken Gayron, Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President of Avid, added, �We continued to grow our Recurring Revenue streams and deliver profitable year-over-year growth during the second quarter.� Mr. Gayron continued, �Despite the challenges posed by supply chain, we ended the quarter with revenue and Adjusted EBITDA in line with our first half forecast and remain confident in our business trajectory and long-term model.�� Additionally, we believe our strong capital and liquidity position provides flexibility in operating our business to drive long term strategic value through prudent capital allocation.�

Third Quarter and Full-Year 2022 Guidance

For the third quarter of 2022, Avid is providing guidance for revenue, Subscription & Maintenance Revenue, Non-GAAP Earnings per Share and Adjusted EBITDA. For the full-year 2022, Avid is reaffirming its guidance for Subscription & Maintenance Revenue due to the continued strong demand for these offerings. While Avid is also seeing healthy market conditions and strong demand for its integrated solutions, the impact on its integrated solutions business from the global supply chain challenges and the expected timing of the recovery from these challenges are adding variability to its full-year 2022 business plans. As a result, Avid is widening the range for full-year 2022 total revenue guidance, while keeping the same midpoint, to better reflect the range of possible outcomes for the year. Avid is adjusting its full-year guidance for Adjusted EBITDA and Non-GAAP EPS to reflect the wider revenue range. Avid is also adjusting its Free Cash Flow guidance for full-year 2022 as a result of several factors. First, Avid is seeing more rapid adoption of enterprise subscriptions globally�which is strategically important for the company and is positive for its long-term model, but which has different near term cash conversion characteristics than its individual creatives subscription business. Second, the expected timing of Avid�s integrated solutions manufacturing recovery happening later in the second half will likely lead to some cash collections from these shipments falling into early 2023. And third, to the extent it can, Avid plans to temporarily build up its inventories to a level that will provide a sufficient buffer and greater flexibility to better navigate the variability in anticipated supply chain conditions over the next several quarters, and most importantly, to better meet the strong demand the company is seeing.

The Company also includes the operational metrics of Cloud-enabled software subscriptions, Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR), Subscription ARR, Recurring Revenue, LTM Recurring Revenue % and Annual Contract Value in this release. Avid believes the non-GAAP financial measures and operational metrics provided in this release provide helpful information to investors with respect to evaluating the Company�s performance.

This press release also includes expectations for future Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Earnings per Share and Free Cash Flow, which are forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures. Reconciliations of these forward-looking non-GAAP measures are not included in this press release or elsewhere, due to the high variability and difficulty in making accurate forecasts and projections of some of the information excluded from the estimation of the non-GAAP results, together with some of the excluded information not being ascertainable or accessible at this time. As a result, we are unable to quantify certain amounts that would be required to be included in the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure without unreasonable efforts.
