Significant Sales and Technology Investments Drive $94.3 Million in Total Revenue and Ongoing Client Acquisition Momentum

2022 Fourth Quarter Cost-Optimization Initiatives Provide Significant Adjusted EBITDA Benefit and Position Company Closer to Reaching Profitability

TUSTIN, Calif., March 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nogin (Nasdaq: NOGN) (“Nogin” or the “Company”), a leading provider of innovative Commerce-as-a-Service (“CaaS”) technology, today reported its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2022.

Management Commentary
“In a year largely defined by global market uncertainty, 2022 was a transformational year for our organization,” said Nogin CEO Jon Huberman. “Our technology is at the heart of what we do, and our efforts last year to develop our revolutionary Intelligent Commerce Platform led to our most recent version launch early in 2023. Also, we completed our business combination, added industry and public markets experience to our management team and Board of Directors, and bolstered our sales force, positioning us to best execute on our growth strategy. These efforts helped drive $94.5 million in total revenue for the year as well as several significant client acquisitions over the second half of 2022 and into 2023. As we diversify our end markets and look to accelerate platform adoption moving forward, we are encouraged by the client acquisition momentum we’ve carried into the new year.

“In addition, optimizing our cost structure was a major initiative for our fourth quarter,” Huberman continued. “We limited our costs and improved efficiency throughout our organization, resulting in an improvement in adjusted EBITDA quarter-over-quarter. As we move deeper into 2023, we are focused on near-term profitability with continued key organic growth investments. While we are committed to managing our business towards adjusted EBITDA expansion in the short term, we are confident we have the team, technology, and exceptional service capabilities to drive our long-term growth strategy. We believe that Nogin is revolutionizing how brands handle ecommerce, and we look forward to what’s ahead for the Company.”

Fourth Quarter 2022 Financial Results
Results compare the three months ended December 31, 2022 to the three months ended December 31, 2021. 

  • Net revenue decreased 39% to $27.9 million from $46.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2021. The decrease in net revenue was primarily due to a decrease in product revenue.
  • Non-GAAP revenue, a non-GAAP measurement of operating performance reconciled to net revenue below, decreased 16% to $22.3 million from $26.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2021. The decrease in non-GAAP revenue was primarily due to a decrease in CaaS and marketing revenue.
  • Operating loss increased to $12.6 million compared to an operating loss of $0.9 million in the comparable year-ago period. The increase in operating loss was materially driven by a one-time write down of bad debt and royalty expense.

Full Year 2022 Financial Results
Results compare the twelve months ended December 31, 2022 to the twelve months ended December 2021.

  • Net revenue decreased 7% to $94.5 million from $101.3 million for the full year ended December 31, 2021. The decrease in net revenue was primarily due to a decrease in net product revenue during the period, partially offset by an increase in net revenue from related parties.
  • Non-GAAP revenue, a non-GAAP measurement of operating performance reconciled to net revenue below, increased 3% to $72.4 million from $70.0 million for the full year ended December 31, 2021. The increase in non-GAAP revenue was primarily due to an increase in CaaS revenue.
  • Operating loss increased to $40.3 million compared to an operating loss of $6.3 million in the comparable year-ago period. The increase in operating loss was primarily due to supply chain issues experienced at the end of 2021 which impacted our performance in the first half of 2022, along with a one-time write down of bad debt and royalty expense.

2023 Financial Outlook
Management expects the Company’s financial results in the 2023 first quarter and full year, including Adjusted EBITDA, to be positively impacted by sales to existing customers, new customer agreements, and the continued results of a comprehensive cost reduction and performance improvement program. The goal of the cost and performance improvement program is to drive efficiency throughout the business while simultaneously achieving or exceeding internal and customer KPIs (Key Performance Indicators).

The expected impact of the Company’s cost and performance improvement program for the full year 2023 is anticipated to be between $15 million and $20 million, and management expects to have the majority of initially identified initiatives complete by the end of the 2023 first quarter.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
We prepare and present our consolidated financial statements in accordance with U.S. GAAP. However, management believes that non-GAAP revenue and Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP financial measures, provide investors with additional useful information in evaluating our performance, as these measures are regularly used by security analysts, institutional investors and other interested parties in analyzing operating performance and prospects. These non-GAAP measures are not intended to be a substitute for any U.S. GAAP financial measures and, as calculated, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of performance of other companies in other industries or within the same industry.

We calculate and define non-GAAP revenue as GAAP revenue less Product Revenue plus the Service Revenues associated with the Product Revenue.

We calculate and define Adjusted EBITDA as net loss, adjusted to exclude: (1) interest expense, (2) income tax expense and (3) depreciation and amortization.

Non-GAAP revenue and Adjusted EBITDA are financial measures that are not required by or presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. We believe that non-GAAP revenue and Adjusted EBITDA, when taken together with our financial results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our operating performance and facilitate internal comparisons of our historical operating performance on a more consistent basis by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of our business, results of operations, or outlook. In particular, we believe that the use of non-GAAP revenue and Adjusted EBITDA is helpful to our investors as they are measures used by management in assessing the health of our business and evaluating our operating performance, as well as for internal planning and forecasting purposes.

Non-GAAP revenue and Adjusted EBITDA are presented for supplemental informational purposes only, have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Some of the limitations of non-GAAP revenue are (i) removing product revenues and (ii) replacing it with the service revenues associated with the sale of those products which ultimately decrease total revenues. Some of the limitations of Adjusted EBITDA include that (1) it does not reflect capital commitments to be paid in the future, (2) although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the underlying assets may need to be replaced and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect these capital expenditures, (3) it does not reflect tax payments that may represent a reduction in cash available to us and (4) it does not include certain non-recurring cash expenses that we do not believe are representative of our business on a steady-state basis. In addition, our use of non-GAAP revenue and Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies because they may not calculate non-GAAP revenue or Adjusted EBITDA in the same manner, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures. Because of these limitations, when evaluating our performance, you should consider non-GAAP revenue and Adjusted EBITDA alongside other financial measures, including our net revenue and net loss and other results stated in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
