THIRD QUARTER RESULTS

Revenue

Third quarter revenue of $194.4 million increased $29.2 million or 18% as compared to the third quarter of 2020. Revenue generated through our E-commerce sales channel increased 18% as compared to the third quarter of 2020, to $121.7 million, and represented 63% of total revenue in the third quarter of 2021. E-commerce revenue growth was driven by higher subscriber revenue and also benefited from our acquisitions of TurboSquid and PicMonkey, which were completed on February 1, 2021 and September 3, 2021, respectively. Revenue from our Enterprise sales channel increased 17% as compared to the third quarter of 2020, to $72.7 million, and represented 37% of third quarter revenue in 2021.  Enterprise revenue growth was driven by billings momentum over the last several quarters, supported by sales execution, and the introduction of new subscription products such as SMB Flex.

On a constant currency basis, revenue increased 17% in the third quarter of 2021 as compared to the third quarter of 2020. On a constant currency basis, E-commerce revenue increased by 18% in the third quarter of 2021, as compared to the third quarter of 2020. On a constant currency basis, Enterprise revenue increased by 15% in the third quarter of 2021, as compared to the third quarter of 2020.

Net income and net income per diluted share

Net income of $16.0 million decreased $6.6 million as compared to $22.6 million for the third quarter in 2020. Net income per diluted share was $0.43, as compared to $0.62 for the same period in 2020. This decrease is due primarily to growth in our operating expenses, driven by increased investment in marketing initiatives including increased performance marketing and brand spending, increased sales commissions and expenditures required to acquire and integrate our third quarter acquisitions. Our higher operating expenses were partially offset by increased revenue.

Adjusted net income per diluted share was $0.70 as compared to $0.80 for the third quarter of 2020, a decrease of $0.10 per diluted share.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA of $44.4 million for the third quarter of 2021 decreased by $3.0 million, or 6%, as compared to the third quarter of 2020, due primarily to higher operating expenses, partially offset by increased revenue. The adjusted EBITDA margin decreased to 22.8% from 28.7% in the third quarter of 2020.

THIRD QUARTER LIQUIDITY

Our cash and cash equivalents decreased by $110.5 million to $300.6 million at September 30, 2021, as compared with $411.0 million as of June 30, 2021. This decrease was driven by $151.4 million used in investing activities and $12.7 million used in financing activities, partially offset by $54.6 million of net cash provided by our operating activities.

Net cash provided by our operating activities was driven by our operating income, in addition to changes in the timing of payments pertaining to operating expenses. Cash used in investing activities primarily consists of $109.6 million cash used in the acquisition of PicMonkey, $31.4 million related to the acquisitions of Pattern89, Inc., Datasine Limited and assets from Shotzr, Inc., and $10.3 million related to capital expenditures and content acquisition. Cash used in financing activities consists primarily of $7.7 million related to the payment of the quarterly cash dividend, $4.2 million for the repurchase of common stock under our share repurchase program, and $1.0 million paid in settlement of tax withholding obligations related to employee stock-based compensation awards.

Free cash flow was $44.3 million for the third quarter of 2021, a decrease of $12.7 million from the third quarter of 2020. This change was primarily driven by lower cash flows from operating activities.

QUARTERLY CASH DIVIDEND

During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company declared and paid cash dividends of $0.21 and $0.63 per common share, respectively, or $7.7 million and $23.0 million, respectively.

On October 18, 2021, the Board of Directors declared a dividend of $0.21 per share of outstanding common stock, payable on December 16, 2021 to stockholders of record at the close of business on December 2, 2021.

2021 GUIDANCE UPDATE

The Company's revised expectations for the full year 2021 are as follows:

  • Revenue of $765 million to $770 million, representing annual growth of 14.75% to 15.5%, an increase from the previous guidance of $740 million to $750 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of between $185 million to $191 million, an increase from the previous guidance of $175 million to $180 million.
  • Adjusted net income per diluted share of between $3.18 to $3.29, an increase from the previous guidance of $2.80 to $2.95 per diluted share.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

To supplement Shutterstock's consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with the accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or GAAP, Shutterstock's management considers certain financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, collectively referred to as non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted share, revenue growth (including by distribution channel) on a constant currency basis (expressed as a percentage), billings and free cash flow.

Shutterstock defines adjusted EBITDA as net income adjusted for depreciation and amortization, non-cash equity-based compensation, foreign currency transaction gains and losses, interest income and expense and income taxes; adjusted EBITDA margin as the ratio of adjusted EBITDA to revenue; adjusted net income as net income adjusted for the impact of non-cash equity-based compensation, the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets and the estimated tax impact of such adjustments; adjusted net income per diluted common share as adjusted net income divided by weighted average diluted shares; revenue growth (including by distribution channel) on a constant currency basis as the increase in current period revenues over prior period revenues, utilizing fixed exchange rates for translating foreign currency revenues for all periods in the comparison; billings as revenue adjusted for the change in deferred revenue, excluding deferred revenue acquired through business combinations; and free cash flow as cash provided by operating activities, adjusted for capital expenditures, content acquisition, and, with respect to the year ended December 31, 2020, a payment associated with long-term incentives related to our 2017 acquisition of Flashstock. These figures have not been calculated in accordance with GAAP and should be considered only in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. Shutterstock cautions investors that non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and are not necessarily comparable to similarly-titled measures presented by other companies.

Shutterstock's management believes that adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted share, revenue growth (including by distribution channel) on a constant currency basis (expressed as a percentage), billings and free cash flow are useful to investors because these measures enable investors to analyze Shutterstock's operating results on the same basis as that used by management. Additionally, management believes that adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income and adjusted net income per diluted share provide useful information to investors about the performance of the Company's overall business because such measures eliminate the effects of unusual or other infrequent charges that are not directly attributable to Shutterstock's underlying operating performance; and revenue growth (including by distribution channel) on a constant currency basis (expressed as a percentage) provides useful information to investors by eliminating the effect of foreign currency fluctuations that are not directly attributable to Shutterstock's operating performance. Management also believes that providing these non-GAAP financial measures enhances the comparability for investors in assessing Shutterstock's financial reporting. Shutterstock's management believes that free cash flow is useful for investors because it provides them with an important perspective on the cash available for strategic measures, after making necessary capital investments in property and equipment to support the Company's ongoing business operations and after excluding the impact of nonrecurring payments associated with long-term incentives related to our 2017 acquisition of Flashstock, and provides them with the same measures that management uses as the basis for making resource allocation decisions.

Shutterstock's management also uses the non-GAAP financial measures adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted share, revenue growth (including by distribution channel) on a constant currency basis (expressed as a percentage), billings and free cash flow, in conjunction with GAAP financial measures, as an integral part of managing the business and to, among other things: (i) monitor and evaluate the performance of Shutterstock's business operations, financial performance and overall liquidity; (ii) facilitate management's internal comparisons of the historical operating performance of its business operations; (iii) facilitate management's external comparisons of the results of its overall business to the historical operating performance of other companies that may have different capital structures and debt levels; (iv) review and assess the operating performance of Shutterstock's management team and, together with other operational objectives, as a measure in evaluating employee compensation and bonuses; (v) analyze and evaluate financial and strategic planning decisions regarding future operating investments; and (vi) plan for and prepare future annual operating budgets and determine appropriate levels of operating investments.

Reconciliations of the differences between adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted share, billings, free cash flow, and the most comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, are presented under the headings "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Information to GAAP" and "Supplemental Financial Data" immediately following the Consolidated Balance Sheets. We do not provide a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA guidance to net income guidance or a reconciliation of adjusted net income per diluted share guidance to net income per diluted share guidance, because we are unable to calculate with reasonable certainty the impact of potential future transactions, including, but not limited to, capital structure transactions, restructuring, acquisitions, divestitures or other events and asset impairments, without unreasonable effort. These amounts depend on various factors and could have a material impact on net income and net income per diluted share, but may be excluded from adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income per diluted share. In addition, we believe such reconciliations would imply a degree of precision that would be confusing or misleading to investors.
