Management Commentary
“In Q1 we successfully completed the second phase of our two-year strategic roadmap, which was designed to improve Qumu’s position as a leader in cloud-first enterprise video and establish an infrastructure to support our accelerating future growth plans,” said Qumu President and CEO TJ Kennedy. “Our continued progress in transitioning to a more predictable SaaS-based model was evidenced by the 21% year-over-year growth in SaaS subscription ARR we delivered during the period; our incremental expansion is building a solid foundation for more predictable growth in the years ahead. Additionally, our focus on converting customers to the cloud continues to produce encouraging results, including a large conversion deal in Q1 2021 with significant annual contract value that will be recognized as future revenue. Our customer success efforts are further deepening relationships and driving solid retention metrics, including a 104% rolling 12-month SaaS renewal rate as of quarter end.

“Over the next 12 months, we will be implementing the initial elements of phase three of our strategic roadmap, which involves ramping global sales and marketing capabilities as well as expanding our customer-obsessed culture across our sales and customer success teams. Success in this phase will mean a further expanded and diversified customer base, deeper customer and partner engagements, and a transformed business model, which collectively should translate to a ‘snowballing’ growth effect for our company that is reflected in our revenue forecast for 2021.
“Qumu’s position as a leading provider of best-in-class live streaming and on-demand video technology has us in a great position to capitalize on several growing and untapped global markets. Our proven product offerings and unique value proposition set in a clear market direction have us confident that our growth plans are well within reach.
“These forceful industry tailwinds and our performance thus far have us on track to achieve our financial and operational objectives in 2021. We believe that continued execution against our plan will position us extremely well to meet our 20% revenue growth in 2021. Our robust balance sheet will also enable us to accelerate many of our growth initiatives. We are making great strides toward the realization of our long-term financial goals, which will establish Qumu as a growth-oriented company operating at scale, benefiting from high-margin recurring revenues, sustainable and growing adjusted EBITDA, and net income profitability.”
First Quarter 2021 Financial Results
Revenue for Q1 2021 was $5.8 million compared to $6.2 million for Q1 2020. The decrease in revenue was primarily due to the expected decline of on-premise license and appliance sales, offset by higher subscription, maintenance, and support revenue.
Subscription, maintenance, and support revenue for Q1 2021 increased 20% to $5.0 million from $4.2 million in Q1 2020, which was driven by new cloud and term license deals signed in 2020 as well as moderate cloud usage overages. Cloud usage continues to grow with significant increases being driven by new use cases and enterprises driving daily operations through the efficient use of video.
Gross margin in Q1 2021 was 73.1% compared to 66.5% for Q1 2020. The gross margin percentage increase was primarily due to a favorable sales mix and an increase in higher-margin SaaS revenue.
Net loss in Q1 2021 was $(4.5) million, or $(0.27) loss per basic share and $(0.29) loss per diluted share, compared to $(2.7) million, or $(0.20) loss per basic share and $(0.21) loss per diluted share, for Q1 2020. The increase in net loss for Q1 2021 compared to Q1 2020 reflects the accelerated implementation of the company’s strategic roadmap as the company increased its headcount by 36 employees during the quarter, bringing the total to 138 employees at March 31, 2021, compared to 102 at December 31, 2020 and 105 at March 31, 2020.
Adjusted EBITDA loss, a non-GAAP measure, in Q1 2021 was $(4.1) million, compared to an adjusted EBITDA loss of $(1.2) million for Q1 2020.
Cash and cash equivalents totaled $27.6 million as of March 31, 2021, an increase of $15.7 million from December 31, 2020. On January 29, 2021, Qumu's underwritten follow-on public offering closed, raising approximately $23.1 million. The company also paid down $1.8 million on its credit facility during Q1 2021, which was originally drawn to repay the $1.8 million note payable to ESW Holdings, Inc. The proceeds from the follow-on offering will allow the company to accelerate many key initiatives within its long-term strategic roadmap and keep it well-positioned to execute against its cloud-first vision.
Business Outlook
Qumu provides revenue guidance based on current market conditions and expectations, including the unknown financial impact that COVID-19 and related recovery will have on economies and enterprises around the world. Based on the company’s Q1 2021 financial results, business pipeline, and strategic roadmap implementation progress, Qumu management reiterates its expectations for at least 20% revenue growth as compared to 2020, or total revenue of approximately $35 million in 2021. As Qumu continues to expand its SaaS salesforce, the company’s operating expenses will increase in the first half of 2021 compared to the first half of 2020. The company also expects its revenue growth rate to accelerate in the second half of 2021 as compared to the first half of 2021.

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, changes in fair values of warrant and derivative 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 ended March 31, 2021 and 2020.
