Community and Engagement Highlights

 

 

Our community grew 5% year-over-year to 186 million Daily Active Users. DAUs were down 1% compared to the prior quarter.

 

We launched Snap Original Shows and the debut of serialized Shows, our first slate of exclusive scripted Shows and docuseries.

 

In Q3, 21 unique Shows in Discover reached a monthly active audience of over 10 million viewers.

 

CBS’ Snapchat Show “James Corden’s Next James Corden” won two Emmy awards: Outstanding Short Form Comedy or Drama Series and Outstanding Actor in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series.

 

We announced partner curated Our Stories and added over 25 media partners to increase the volume and variety of content available in Discover on Snapchat. Partners include CNN, digital brands like Overtime, and longtime partners like Hearst.

 


 

 

We extended our partnerships with NBCUniversal and Viacom to create even more content for our users worldwide. NBCUniversal extended its content production commitments through 2019, and Viacom has committed to creating 10 new Snap Original Shows. Viacom also committed to syndicating at least 500 episodes of its network’s shows to the Snapchat audience.

 

We partnered with Amazon to bring a new shopping experience to our community, accessible right from the Snapchat camera. Snapchatters can simply point the Snapchat camera at a physical product or barcode, and press and hold the screen to get started.

 

We introduced two new styles of Spectacles: Nico and Veronica. Both designs come in black-on-black with polarized lenses.

 

On National Voter Registration Day, we offered a new way for our community to register to vote quickly and easily — right in Snapchat with TurboVote — and attracted over 400,000 new voter registrations according to TurboVote.

 

Snapchatters have saved more than 200 billion Snaps in Memories.

Monetization Highlights

 

 

We announced two new products focused on e-commerce advertisers to enhance our e-commerce offering ahead of the holiday season:

 

o

Product Catalogs, which allow advertisers to upload their standard product catalog, a format utilized broadly by other ad platforms, and quickly generate a product catalog in the form of a Story Ad.

 

o

Collection Ads, which give users the ability to interact with four products in a single Snap Ad, rather than swiping up to a single product / category. Wish, eBay, and Guess, who were all part of the initial testing group for Collection Ads, saw significantly higher engagement rates compared to typical Snap Ads. eBay’s engagement rate, for example, was five times higher.

 

We brought Commercials to our self-serve platform. Commercials are our 6-second, non-skippable ad that appears only within premium content, including 12 new Snap Original Shows.

 

The Snap Pixel, which helps advertisers measure the cross-device impact of their campaigns continued to see impressive growth with over 230 million purchase events in Q3, up from 70 million in Q2.

 

Our Snapchat Show “Fashion Five Ways” included our first ever shoppable brand integration within a Show on Snapchat. This campaign helped the Adidas Falcon sneaker to sell out.

 

We expanded the availability of goal-based bidding for conversions to all advertisers and introduced new automated audience creation capabilities for the Snap Pixel, allowing advertisers to automatically generate audiences on various events measured by the Snap Pixel.

 

We expanded augmented reality marketing, and have added ‘attachments’ to our self-serve augmented reality buying tools, which means lower funnel goals such as App Installs can be driven directly from augmented reality.

 

We started connecting the insights we share with advertisers with actions they can take in Ad Manager. This month, we added the ability to build re-engagement audiences off of foot traffic data, meaning advertisers can engage audiences who have visited their retail locations.

Financial Guidance

The following forward-looking statements reflect our expectations for the fourth quarter of 2018 as of October 25, 2018, and are subject to substantial uncertainty. This guidance assumes, among other things, that no business acquisitions, investments, restructurings, or legal settlements are concluded in the quarter. Our results are based on assumptions that we believe to be reasonable as of this date, but may be materially affected by many factors, as discussed below in “Forward-Looking Statements.”

Q4 2018 Outlook

 

Revenue is expected to reach a new high of between $355 million and $380 million, or grow between 24% and 33% compared to Q4 2017.

 

Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be between $(100) million and $(75) million, compared to $(159) million in Q4 2017.

Definitions

Free Cash Flow is defined as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities, reduced by purchases of property and equipment.

Common shares outstanding plus shares underlying stock-based awards includes common shares outstanding, restricted stock units, and outstanding stock options.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss), excluding interest income; interest expense; other income (expense) net; income tax benefit (expense); depreciation and amortization; stock-based compensation expense and related payroll tax expense; and certain other non-cash or non-recurring items impacting net income (loss) from time to time.

A Daily Active User (DAU) is defined as a registered Snapchat user who opens the Snapchat application at least once during a defined 24-hour period. We calculate average DAUs for a particular quarter by adding the number of DAUs on each day of that quarter and dividing that sum by the number of days in that quarter.

Average revenue per user (ARPU) is defined as quarterly revenue divided by the average DAUs.

A Monthly Active User (MAU) is defined as a registered Snapchat user who opens the Snapchat application at least once during the 30-day period ending on the calendar month-end. We calculate average Monthly Active Users for a particular quarter by calculating the average of the MAUs as of each calendar month-end in that quarter.

Note: For adjustments and additional information regarding the non-GAAP financial measures and other items discussed, please see “Non-GAAP Financial Measures,” “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures,” and “Supplemental Financial Information and Business Metrics.”

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Act, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Exchange Act, about us and our industry that involve substantial risks and uncertainties. All statements other than statements of historical facts contained in this press release, including statements regarding guidance, our future results of operations or financial condition, business strategy and plans, and objectives of management for future operations, are forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements because they contain words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “contemplate,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “plan,” “potential,” “predict,” “project,” “should,” “target,” “will,” or “would” or the negative of these words or other similar terms or expressions. We caution you that the foregoing may not include all of the forward-looking statements made in this press release.

You should not rely on forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. We have based the forward-looking statements contained in this press release primarily on our current expectations and projections about future events and trends that we believe may affect our business, financial condition, results of operations, and prospects. These forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties related to: our financial performance; our lack of profitability to date; our ability to attract and retain users, publishers, and advertisers; competition; managing our international expansion and our growth and future expenses; our ability to maintain, protect, and enhance our intellectual property; compliance with new laws and regulations; our ability to attract and retain qualified and key personnel; and future acquisitions or investments, as well as risks, uncertainties, and other factors described in “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in our quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, which is available on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov. Additional information will be made available in Snap Inc.’s quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 and other filings that we make from time to time with the SEC. In addition, any forward-looking statements contained in this press release are based on assumptions that we believe to be reasonable as of this date. We undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this press release or to reflect new information or the occurrence of unanticipated events, except as required by law.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, we use certain non-GAAP financial measures, as described below, to understand and evaluate our core operating performance. These non-GAAP financial measures, which may be different than similarly titled measures used by other companies, are presented to enhance investors’ overall understanding of our financial performance and should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

We use the non-GAAP financial measure of Free Cash Flow, which is defined as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities, reduced by purchases of property and equipment. We believe Free Cash Flow is an important liquidity measure of the cash that is available, after capital expenditures, for operational expenses and investment in our business and is a key financial indicator used by management. Additionally, we believe that Free Cash Flow is an important measure since we use third-party infrastructure partners to host our services and therefore we do not incur significant capital expenditures to support revenue generating activities. Free Cash Flow is useful to investors as a liquidity measure because it measures our ability to generate or use cash. Once our business needs and obligations are met, cash can be used to maintain a strong balance sheet and invest in future growth.

We use the non-GAAP financial measure of Adjusted EBITDA, which is defined as net income (loss); excluding interest income; interest expense; other income (expense), net; income tax benefit (expense); depreciation and amortization; stock-based compensation expense and related payroll tax expense; and certain other non-cash or non-recurring items impacting net income (loss) from time to time. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA helps identify underlying trends in our business that could otherwise be masked by the effect of the expenses that we exclude in Adjusted EBITDA.

We use the non-GAAP financial measure of non-GAAP net loss, which is defined as net income (loss); excluding amortization of intangible assets; stock-based compensation expense and related payroll tax expense; certain other non-cash or non-recurring items impacting net income (loss) from time to time; and related income tax adjustments. Non-GAAP net loss and weighted average diluted shares are then used to calculate non-GAAP diluted net loss per share. Similar to Adjusted EBITDA, we believe these measures help identify underlying trends in our business that could otherwise be masked by the effect of the expenses we exclude in the measure.

We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information about our financial performance, enhance the overall understanding of our past performance and future prospects, and allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by our management for financial and operational decision-making. We are presenting these non-GAAP measures to assist investors in seeing our financial performance through the eyes of management, and because we believe that these measures provide an additional tool for investors to use in comparing our core financial performance over multiple periods with other companies in our industry.

For a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, please see “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”

(1)

Spectacles inventory-related charges in the third quarter of 2017 were primarily related to excess inventory reserves and inventory purchase commitment cancellation charges. These charges are non-recurring and not reflective of underlying trends in our business.

 

(2)

Reduction in force charges during the first quarter of 2018 were related to a reduction in force plan we implemented during March 2018, impacting approximately 7% of our global headcount, primarily in engineering and sales. The charges are composed primarily of severance expense and related payroll tax expense. These charges are non-recurring and not reflective of underlying trends in our business. Additionally, we recognized a stock-based compensation forfeiture benefit of $31.5 million, which is included in the stock-based compensation expense line item above.

 

(3)

Lease exit charges were related to our exit of various operating leases prior to the end of the contractual lease term, primarily as a result of moving to a centralized corporate office located in Santa Monica, California. In the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, we recorded lease exit charges of $29.3 million and $33.3 million, respectively. The charges primarily include the present value of our remaining lease obligation on the cease use dates that occurred during the quarter, net of estimated sublease income. These charges are non-recurring and not reflective of underlying trends in our business.
