Otonomo Reports Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results

HERZLIYA, Israel and SAN FRANCISCO, California, August 17, 2022-- Otonomo Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq: OTMO), the platform powering the mobility economy, today announced its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2022.

 Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results:


Total revenue for the second quarter 2022 was $1.9 million compared to $0.3 million for the second quarter 2021


GAAP operating loss for the second quarter 2022 was $65.6 million, including an impairment charge of $45.8 million, compared to a loss of $5.6 million for the second quarter 2021


Non-GAAP operating loss* for the second quarter 2022 was $15.8 million compared to a loss of $5.0 million for the second quarter 2021


Cash and cash equivalents, short term investments and restricted cash as of June 30, 2022 was $169.5 million


Completed the acquisition of The Floow, a SaaS provider of connected insurance technology for major carriers globally.


Impairment charge of $45.8 million related to goodwill and intangibles was triggered by the decrease in the stock market and recorded in compliance with ASC 350 “Intangibles—Goodwill and Other”


Otonomo is not forecasting results for the second half of the year at this time. Otonomo remains committed to growing and keeping a focus on long-term targets.

*For a definition of non-GAAP operating loss and a reconciliation of such non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, please see “Use of non-GAAP Financial Information” and “Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP Financial Information.”
 
Second Quarter 2022 Business Highlights:
 

Added 13 new customers in Q2 2022 (in addition to existing customers from acquisition of The Floow)
 

Recurring revenue for the second quarter 2022 grew by nearly 10X quarter over quarter and was 69% of Otonomo’s revenue for the second quarter 2022
 

Bookings* increased by 62% quarter over quarter
 

Backlog** increased more than 5.5x quarter over quarter
 

Annual recurring revenue increased by more than 11x quarter over quarter
 

Management’s Remarks
 
“The second quarter was Otonomo’s strongest quarter yet, as we experienced significant year-over-year revenue growth as well as an increase in bookings, backlog and recurring revenue,” said Ben Volkow, Chief Executive Officer. “Following the successful acquisition of The Floow, we are already seeing exceptional results with net new customers and an expanding strategic team.  We are leveraging the added value gained from its established insurance data solutions and clients. Our go-to market team is starting to show results in strong pipeline and deal volumes. This progress is not yet fully reflected in our financial results and may take longer than originally anticipated, however, our growth trajectory in our chosen markets is clear.”

“As we look to the second half of the year, we realize we can be susceptible to macro-economic headwinds, which can affect our 2022 guidance. Based on the global uncertainties in the market, the forecast for 2022 should no longer be relied upon and we are not forecasting results for the second half of the year at this time. We believe these are near-term challenges and we will remain focused on scaling our business and growing our customer base,” Ben Volkow concluded.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measure

In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, Otonomo uses non-GAAP measures of operating loss, which are adjustments from results based on GAAP to exclude, as applicable, stock-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets and depreciation, contingent liability expense related to The Floow acquisition and impairment of intangible assets and goodwill. Otonomo’s management believes the non-GAAP financial information provided in this release is useful to investors’ understanding and assessment of Otonomo’s ongoing core operations and prospects for the future. The presentation of this non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures discussed in this press release to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is included with the financial statements contained in this press release. Management uses both GAAP and non-GAAP information in evaluating and operating business internally and as such has determined that it is important to provide this information to investors.
