AUSTIN, Texas, May 11, 2022 -­ Bumble Inc. (NASDAQ: BMBL), the parent company of Bumble, Badoo, and Fruitz, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022.

"I am pleased by our strong first quarter results,” said Whitney Wolfe Herd, Founder and CEO of Bumble Inc. “Bumble App drove substantial revenue growth across the U.S. and international markets and delivered a significant sequential increase in paying users by continuing to focus on a woman-first experience built upon trust, kindness and safety. Our compelling brands, product leadership, and operational excellence position us well to capture a growing share of the global dating market."
 

First Quarter 2022 Financial and Operational Highlights:

(All comparisons relative to the First Quarter 2021)

Total Revenue increased 23.7% to $211.2 million compared to $170.7 million. This includes an unfavorable impact of $5.1 million from foreign currency movements year over year.
o
Bumble App Revenue grew 38.0% to $155.4 million.
o
Badoo App and Other Revenue, including Fruitz which was acquired in January 2022, declined 4.0% to $55.8 million.
Total Paying Users increased to 3.0 million.
Total Average Revenue per Paying User ("ARPPU") increased to $22.76, compared to $19.99.
Net earnings were $23.9 million and net earnings margin was 11.3%, compared to net earnings of $323.4 million and net earnings margin of 189.5%.
Adjusted EBITDA was $49.8 million, or 23.6% of revenue, compared to $46.1 million, or 27.0% of revenue.

 

“We are off to an excellent start for fiscal year 2022, exceeding our outlook for revenue and adjusted EBITDA in the first quarter,” said Anu Subramanian, CFO of Bumble Inc. “Total revenue grew 24% year over year in Q1, propelled by Bumble App, which saw growth in both paying users and average revenue per paying user. We also continued to deliver strong economics, including adjusted EBITDA of $50 million and net earnings of $24 million. Even amid the current dynamic operating environment, we believe the underlying momentum in our business remains robust.”

Financial results will not be final until Bumble files its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the period. Information about Bumble's use of non-GAAP financial measures is provided below under “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”

 

Financial Outlook:

 

Bumble anticipates Total Revenue and adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter and year ending December 31, 2022 to be:

 

Second quarter 2022:

Total Revenue in the range of $218 million to $221 million, which includes:
o
Impact from the conflict in Ukraine of $6 million, primarily in Badoo App and Other Revenue.
o
An unfavorable impact of $9 million from foreign currency movements, an increase of $2 million since the prior earnings call.
Bumble App Revenue of $167 million to $169 million. This includes an unfavorable impact of $5 million from foreign currency movements, an increase of $1 million since the prior earnings call.
Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $51 million to $53 million, including $4 million of incremental expenses the company expects to incur from complying with the Google Play billing mandate which started on April 1, 2022.

 

Full year 2022:

Total Revenue in the range of $934 million to $944 million, which includes:
o
Impact from the conflict in Ukraine of $20 million, primarily in Badoo App and Other Revenue.
o
An unfavorable impact of $28 million from foreign currency movements, an increase of $8 million from our prior outlook. At current foreign exchange rates, reported revenue would be at the lower end of the guidance range.
Bumble App year over year revenue growth of 34% to 36%. This includes an unfavorable impact of $15 million from foreign currency movements, an increase of $4 million since the prior earnings call.
Adjusted EBITDA margin in the range of 24.5% to 25%, including $16 million of incremental expenses the company expects to incur from complying with the Google Play billing mandate which started on April 1, 2022.

 

Actual results may differ materially from Bumble’s financial outlook as a result of, among other things, the factors described under “Forward-Looking Statements” below.

 

With regards to the adjusted EBITDA outlook provided above, a reconciliation to GAAP net earnings (loss) has not been provided as the quantification of certain items included in the calculation of GAAP net earnings (loss) cannot be calculated or predicted at this time without unreasonable efforts. For example, the non-GAAP adjustment for stock-based compensation expense requires additional inputs such as number of shares granted and market price that are not currently ascertainable, and the non-GAAP adjustment for certain legal, tax and regulatory reserves and expenses depends on the timing and magnitude of these expenses and cannot be accurately forecasted. For the same reasons, the Company is unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information, which could have a potentially unpredictable, and potentially significant, impact on its future GAAP financial results.

 

Conference Call and Webcast Information

Definitions

 

Bumble App Revenue is revenue derived from purchases or renewals of a Bumble app subscription plan and/or in-app purchases on Bumble app in the relevant period.

 

 


 

Bumble App Average Revenue per Paying User is calculated based on Bumble App Revenue in any measurement period, divided by Bumble App Paying Users in such period divided by the number of months in the period.

Bumble App Paying User is a user that has purchased or renewed a Bumble subscription plan and/or made an in-app purchase on the Bumble app in a given month. We calculate Bumble App Paying Users as a monthly average, by counting the number of Bumble App Paying Users in each month and then dividing by the number of months in the relevant measurement period.

Badoo App and Other Revenue is revenue derived from purchases or renewals of a Badoo app subscription plan and/or in-app purchases on Badoo app in the relevant period, purchases on one of our other apps that we owned and operated in the relevant period, purchases on other third party apps that used our technology in the relevant period and advertising, partnerships or affiliates revenue in the relevant period.

Badoo App and Other Average Revenue per Paying User is calculated based on Badoo App and Other Revenue in any measurement period, excluding any revenue generated from Fruitz, advertising and partnerships or affiliates, divided by Badoo App and Other Paying Users in such period divided by the number of months in the period.

Badoo App and Other Paying User is a user that has purchased or renewed a subscription plan and/or made an in-app purchase on the Badoo app in a given month (or made a purchase on one of our other apps that we owned and operated in a given month (excluding Fruitz), or purchase on other third-party apps that used our technology in the relevant period). We calculate Badoo App and Other Paying Users as a monthly average, by counting the number of Badoo App and Other Paying Users in each month and then dividing by the number of months in the relevant measurement period.

 

Total Revenue is the sum of Bumble App Revenue and Badoo App and Other Revenue.

 

Total Average Revenue per Paying User is calculated based on Total Revenue in any measurement period, excluding any revenue generated from Fruitz, advertising and partnerships or affiliates, divided by the Total Paying Users in such period divided by the number of months in the period.

 

Total Paying Users is the sum of Bumble App Paying Users and Badoo App and Other Paying Users.

 

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

 

We report our financial results in accordance with GAAP, however, management believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures provide users of our financial information with useful supplemental information that enables a better comparison of our performance across periods. These measures include: adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, free cash flow and free cash flow conversion. We believe adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin provide visibility to the underlying continuing operating performance by excluding the impact of certain expenses, including income tax (benefit) provision, interest (income) expense, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, employer costs related to stock-based compensation, foreign exchange (gain) loss, changes in fair value of contingent earn-out liability, interest rate swaps and investments, transaction and other costs, litigation costs net of insurance reimbursements that arise outside of the ordinary course of business and tax receivable agreement liability remeasurement (benefit) expense, as management does not believe these expenses are representative of our core earnings. In addition to adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin, we believe free cash flow and free cash flow conversion provide useful information regarding how cash provided by operating activities compares to the capital expenditures required to maintain and grow our business, and our available liquidity, after funding such capital expenditures, to service our debt, fund strategic initiatives and strengthen our balance sheet, as well as our ability to convert our earnings to cash. Additionally, we believe such metrics are widely used by investors, securities analysis, ratings agencies and other parties in evaluating liquidity and debt-service capabilities. We calculate free cash flow and free cash flow conversion using methodologies that we believe can provide useful supplemental information to help investors better understand underlying trends in our business.

 

Our non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies, have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation, or as substitutes for analysis of our operating results as reported under GAAP. Additionally, we do not consider our non-GAAP financial measures as superior to, or a substitute for, the equivalent measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.

 

Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“adjusted EBITDA”) is defined as net earnings (loss) excluding income tax (benefit) provision, interest (income) expense, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, employer costs related to stock-based compensation, foreign exchange (gain) loss, changes in fair value of contingent earn-out liability, interest rate swaps and investments, transaction and other costs, litigation costs net of insurance reimbursements that arise outside of the ordinary course of business and tax receivable agreement liability remeasurement (benefit) expense.

 


 

 

Adjusted EBITDA margin represents adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenue.

 

Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities less capital expenditures.

 

Free cash flow conversion represents free cash flow as a percentage of adjusted EBITDA.

 

Operating cash flow conversion represents net cash provided by (used in) operating activities as a percentage of net earnings (loss).
