Management Commentary

“Our results for the fourth quarter and full year demonstrate the continued execution of our strategic roadmap, which emphasizes growing our cloud business and scaling our SaaS revenue base,” said Qumu President and CEO TJ Kennedy. “Highlighting this success is the 35% SaaS revenue growth we delivered in 2021, bringing our total SaaS revenue to a record $10.2 million at year end. Additionally, SaaS revenue accounted for 56% of our recurring revenue and 48% of our total revenue in Q4 2021, with the percent of total recurring revenue metric exceeding our guidance for the year-end and giving us encouraging momentum as we begin 2022. SaaS annual recurring revenue also grew by 16% in 2021, bringing the growth rate for SaaS ARR over the last two years to 40%, which we expect to serve as a strong benchmark going forward.”

Qumu CFO Tom Krueger commented: “As expected, our overall topline was down for the year, which was a direct result of certain legacy, on-prem contracts sunsetting as we focus our attention on higher margin, recurring revenue deals. Our partner-led sales motions and customer success efforts are gaining momentum and driving new customers, deeper relationships, and cloud conversions. In 2021, we completed five on-prem to SaaS conversions and expect to complete a similar number this year. Partner generated revenue grew 25% compared to 2020 and accounted for more than 30% of our total revenue in 2021. Looking at our costs, the optimization measures we implemented in the second half of 2021 have made us a more nimble and efficient organization, reflected by strong margins and reduced operating expenses, which we expect to further reduce in 2022.”

Kennedy continued: “2021 was a transformative year for our organization, and I am incredibly proud of what the team accomplished. We scaled our cloud offerings, expanded our partner network, converted key on-prem customers, and delivered robust SaaS revenue growth, all of which allowed us to enter 2022 with solid momentum.

“Looking ahead, the progress we’re making with partners and strategic alliances is gaining traction, which we believe will translate to even more results starting in the second quarter of this year. As we continue to transform our business, we are focused on delivering robust SaaS revenue growth, which will be driven by new customer and expansion bookings sourced through the channel in 2022. Based on our success driving SaaS revenue and ARR in 2021, we are increasing our goals for 2022. We now expect our SaaS recurring revenue as a percentage of our recurring revenue to be at least 65% by the end of 2022 and 75% by the end of 2023. Longer term, we are confident that Qumu will emerge as a subscription-driven growth company operating at scale, benefiting from high-margin recurring revenues, sustainable and growing cash flow and Adjusted EBITDA and net income profitability.”

Fourth Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Revenue for Q4 2021 was $5.9 million, compared to $6.4 million in Q3 2021 and $6.9 million in Q4 2020. The year-over-year decrease was expected and due to the company’s strategic shift away from perpetual license sales, where revenue is recognized upon delivery, and toward SaaS sales, which results in ratable recognition of revenue through subscription terms.

Service revenue for Q4 2021 was $5.8 million, compared to $5.7 million in Q3 2021 and $6.1 million in Q4 2020. The year-over-year decrease resulted from customer contracts sunsetting, impacting maintenance revenue associated with the company’s on-premise solution.

Gross margin in Q4 2021 was 75%, compared to gross margin of 76% for both Q3 2021 and Q4 2020. The gross margin percentage was impacted by lower overall revenue relative to the comparative periods.

Net loss in Q4 2021 totaled $(3.8) million, or $(0.21) loss per basic and diluted share. This compares to net loss of $(3.7) million, or $(0.21) loss per basic and diluted share, for Q3 2021 and net loss of $(4.0) million, or $(0.29) loss per basic and diluted share, in Q4 2020.

Adjusted EBITDA loss, a non-GAAP measure, in Q4 2021 was $(3.1) million, compared to $(3.5) million in Q3 2021 and $(1.1) million in Q4 2020.

As of December 31, 2021, the company had cash and cash equivalents of $20.6 million and borrowings of $5.0 million on the company’s revolving credit facility.

Full Year 2021 Financial Results

Revenue for full year 2021 was $24.0 million, compared to $29.1 million in full year 2020. The decrease was expected and due to a large on-premise deal recognized in 2020 as well as the company’s strategic shift away from perpetual license sales, which revenue is recognized upon delivery, and toward SaaS sales, which results in ratable recognition of revenue through subscription terms.

Service revenue for full year 2021 was $22.8 million, compared to $21.5 million in 2020. The year-over-year increase resulted from shifting customers to the cloud and growing SaaS ARR and SaaS revenue.

Gross margin in 2021 was 74%, an improvement from gross margin of 71% for 2020.

Net loss in 2021 totaled $(16.4) million, or $(0.93) loss per basic and $(1.01) loss per diluted share. This compares to net loss of $(9.2) million, or $(0.68) loss per basic and $(0.70) loss per diluted share in 2020.

Adjusted EBITDA loss, a non-GAAP measure, in 2021 was $(15.2) million, compared to $(2.3) million in 2020.

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 management now expects 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.

Conference Call

Qumu executive management will host a conference call today (March 17, 2022) at 4:30 p.m. Eastern time.

U.S. Dial-In Number: +1.833.644.0679

International Dial-In Number: +1.918.922.6755

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, other non-operating income and expenses, and transaction-related 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 months and year ended December 31, 2021 and 2020.
