Management Commentary
“Qumu is in the midst of a significant business transformation, and we’re well on our way to becoming a SaaS-first organization capable of generating robust and predictable long-term growth,” said Qumu President and CEO TJ Kennedy. “Our financial results for the second quarter of 2021 were in-line with or better than the preliminary results we announced last month. We are actively addressing and overcoming several near-term headwinds, including longer-than-expected sales cycles, slower ramp of our new SaaS sales resources, and the anticipated decline of our legacy on-premise business. Although these transformation challenges have pushed our anticipated growth inflection point into early next year, this process has yielded actionable insights that have helped us to hone our approach and implement adjustments in our business execution for the second half of 2021.”

“Our revised plan focuses on ensuring continued growth of our subscription-based business while still maintaining dedicated support for our on-premise customers,” added Kennedy. “We have already taken action on important go-forward initiatives, including simplifying our selling motions with focused messaging that better highlights our key differentiators, updating our pricing to better align with our value-based selling approach, and modifying the packaging of our services offerings to focus on our customers’ key enterprise use cases.”
Dave Ristow, Qumu’s Chief Financial Officer, commented: “We are executing a cost-optimization program to align our expenses with our new level of anticipated revenues. This strategy includes reducing our burn rate, slowing our hiring in non-revenue generating and quota-carrying resources, and implementing other cost-cutting measures to ensure adequate working capital to support our SaaS transition. When completed, these measures will create an even more focused, nimble, and efficient organization. We believe we have the necessary resources, including more than $21 million of cash, that we expect will cover our growth investment needs and ensure our sustainability as we execute our long-term growth initiatives. As we execute our strategic roadmap, we will continue to monitor spending closely as we march towards adjusted EBITDA positivity targeted for the second half of 2022 with the goal of maintaining a solid cash position throughout the process.”
Kennedy continued: “From a leadership standpoint, we have significantly strengthened the Qumu team necessary to execute our strategic roadmap. This includes bolstering our customer facing teams, adding experienced SaaS sales executives, and appointing world-class business leaders. Most recently, we announced Andi Mann as our new Chief Technology Officer, who joined Qumu a few weeks ago. Andi will lead our technology efforts to deepen and enhance our enterprise video portfolio, including expanding our advanced video analytics capabilities and ensuring best-in-class cloud security. With Andi’s appointment, Qumu’s leadership team is the strongest and deepest in company history, and the group’s collective experience gives us confidence in our ability to execute on our long-term strategy.
“SaaS businesses are built on strong foundations of process, people, and technology, and we have now put in place the foundation for our long-term success. Our go-to-market motions, targeting both large and medium enterprises are gaining traction. Our improved customer success efforts are deepening customer relationships and driving growth in our subscription ARR and continued on-prem to cloud conversions. As we transform our business, our focus remains on delivering robust SaaS revenue growth. Today, we have a growing SaaS ARR business, which totaled $12.4 million at quarter end and was up 28% year-over-year. Our plan is centered around driving additional scale of our SaaS business through our direct sales team, our new customer success and account management organization, and our newly invigorated channel and partnership ecosystem, which will enable us to accelerate the value we deliver to our customers.
“Looking ahead, hybrid work and the use of video by enterprises is here to stay, and Qumu is building for the long-term success of the company and its shareholders. We have the right plan and team in place, and the resources to ensure sustainability and the successful achievement of our strategic roadmap. We remain confident that Qumu will emerge as a subscription driven, growth company operating at scale, benefiting from high-margin recurring revenues, sustainable and growing adjusted EBITDA, and net income profitability.”
Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results
Revenue for Q2 2021 was $5.9 million compared to $9.3 million for Q2 2020. The decrease in revenue was primarily due to a significant one-time license and appliance revenues recognized from a large single customer in Q2 2020.
Subscription, maintenance, and support revenue for Q2 2021 increased 9% to $5.1 million from $4.7 million in Q2 2020, which was driven by new cloud and term deals as well as moderate cloud usage overage fees.
Gross margin in Q2 2021 was 74% compared to 69% for Q2 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 Q2 2021 was $(4.3) million, or $(0.24) loss per basic share and $(0.30) loss per diluted share, compared to $(692,000), or $(0.05) loss per basic share and $(0.06) loss per diluted share, for Q2 2020. The higher net loss reflects costs associated with the implementation of the company’s strategic roadmap.
Adjusted EBITDA loss, a non-GAAP measure, in Q2 2021 was $(4.5) million, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $809,000 for Q2 2020. Adjusted EBITDA loss reflects decreased revenues and increased operating expenses associated with investments in Qumu's strategic roadmap to transform the company’s perpetual license business into a SaaS subscription business model.
As of June 30, 2021, the company had cash and cash equivalents of $21.3 million and no borrowings on the company's revolving credit facility.
Business Outlook
Qumu provides guidance based on current market conditions and expectations. The Company emphasizes that its guidance is subject to various important cautionary factors referenced in the section entitled "Forward-Looking Statements" below, including risks and uncertainties associated with the Company’s strategic roadmap and the COVID-19 pandemic, such as trends in distributed remote and hybrid work impacting enterprise technology adoption and procurement.
In order to provide better insight into the progress of Qumu’s SaaS business transformation, the Company provides a business outlook based on the percentage of recurring revenue comprised of SaaS revenue. Qumu management currently anticipates SaaS recurring revenue to comprise approximately 60% of its overall recurring revenue mix by the end of 2022, with targeted growth to approximately 70% by the end of 2023.

U.S. Dial-In Number: +1.833.644.0679

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, change in fair value of warrant liabilities, foreign currency gains and losses, other non-operating income and expenses, non-cash office lease surrender costs 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 and six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020.
