Lynne Laube — Co-Founder, Chief Govt Officer, and Director Good night, and thanks for becoming a member of our Q3 2021 earnings name. We had a stable quarter and delivered outcomes above our steering. Throughout Q3, we noticed rising momentum from our investments in gross sales, and entrepreneurs are higher managing the continued labor and provide disruptions that impacted our leads to Q2. Listed below are the numbers. Cardlytics platform billings had been $95.5 million, up 54% 12 months over 12 months. Cardlytics platform income, which is the same as billings web of client incentives, was $62.1 million, a rise of 35% from Q3 2020. And Cardlytics platform adjusted contribution was $28.9 million, up 46% 12 months over 12 months. Our Q3 outcomes replicate sequential billing progress in all of our trade verticals. The core enterprise continues to achieve traction with our shoppers, and we achieved wins in all of our main verticals, together with six new logos inside journey and leisure. We’re inspired by the tempo of our billings progress in comparison with final quarter and count on the momentum in our gross sales group will proceed. However I wish to warning that the now well-documented labor and provide chain disruptions that we famous final quarter proceed to affect our shoppers. It is troublesome to estimate the affect this may occasionally have on their urge for food to drive client demand till these circumstances enhance. On a optimistic word, I wish to remind traders that Apple’s iOS privateness adjustments don’t have an effect on our platform and we imagine will probably be an extra tailwind shifting ahead as advertisers search for new methods to interact their clients. Shifting on from outcomes. I wish to present an replace on our key initiatives. As we have mentioned over the previous a number of quarters, we’re remodeling our total platform to have options and performance which can be much like different digital platforms however nonetheless throughout the model secure and responsive financial institution channels. This can be a companywide initiative that has concerned practically each single worker, and I am pleased with the progress the staff continues to make to allow us to open our platform to businesses and SMBs and allow new capabilities similar to product-level provide, imagery, dynamic pricing, and self-service. In Q3, we began migrating our campaigns to this new platform, which we consult with as our Advert Supervisor. We’re excited to report that as of at this time, 99% of our present campaigns within the U.S. had been constructed on the brand new platform. We’re happy with the migration and our present efforts are targeted on standardizing processes and optimizing marketing campaign efficiency. As we have mentioned earlier than, businesses would be the first group of shoppers to leverage self-service, and our company gross sales staff we constructed earlier this 12 months continues to achieve traction. For instance, our largest company associate has spent over $8 million on behalf of six shoppers in 2021 and is planning to pilot campaigns with a number of different new shoppers. We additionally signed an MSA with a top-five company group, which is able to enable us to entry efficiency advertising and marketing budgets throughout all of their working entities. And as promised, we’re reporting company as a p.c of advertiser spend beginning this quarter. I am happy to say that our company accounts grew over 150% 12 months over 12 months and now signify practically 10% of advertiser spending throughout Q3. Concurrent with launching our new Advert Supervisor, we’re deploying our new advert server. That is the know-how we deploy for our banks that allows the transformation of the person expertise. It would enable us to ship richer and extra various content material. The brand new advert server will allow new provide constructs at scale, similar to product-level gives, gives that may solely be redeemed at a selected time of day, gives which can be native and/or store-specific, and different constructs that give advertisers far more alternative and options versus our present expertise. To supply an instance of the advantages, U.S. Financial institution is the primary adopter of our advert server, now has wealthy imagery dwell on 20% of its marketing campaign. And shortly, we can be piloting product-level gives to U.S. Financial institution customers. We’re working very carefully with our main banks to launch the brand new advert server and have acquired vital optimistic curiosity up to now. Whereas we count on the total adoption course of to be a two-year journey, we purpose to have better than 50% of our MAUs related to the brand new advert server by the tip of 2022. Nevertheless, this purpose is topic to alter given we’re depending on our FI companions, however we’ll preserve you up to date on our progress. As soon as we acquire enough scale of MAUs dwell on the advert server, we can be in market promoting new merchandise and new provide sorts. We’re excited to broaden these choices as extra FIs undertake the brand new advert server. Lastly, we’re utilizing the brand new advert server as a catalyst to replace FI contracts and dealing protocols. We’re encouraging our banks to allow us to do extra for them so we are able to all go quicker collectively. That is an especially optimistic improvement in all of our financial institution relationships. Nevertheless, the introduction of the advert server and different new choices has elevated the complexity and time it takes to resume contracts. Consequently, we imagine the Financial institution of America contracts is probably not renewed till early subsequent 12 months. However each groups are nonetheless working very exhausting to get it performed earlier than the tip of the 12 months. Regardless, we totally count on to succeed in an settlement with BofA and imagine this new contract can be extremely useful to each events. We’re additionally specializing in different strategic initiatives, together with our current acquisitions. The Dosh integration continues to proceed as deliberate. We’re leveraging Dosh’s know-how to hurry up our improvement efforts, lengthen our community to giant fintech platforms and permit our banks to check and be taught new options earlier than they undertake them. We’re on monitor to realize our deliberate price synergies subsequent 12 months, and subsequently, this would be the final time we talk about Dosh as a separate entity. We’ll proceed to talk about Bridg as a separate entity. They too had a stable quarter, and our integration continues as deliberate. In Q2, we started combining back-office features. And through Q3, we began to spend money on Bridg’s gross sales staff. We count on Bridg to exceed the primary 12 months ARR that we initially forecasted in our acquisition thesis. That is partially pushed by current wins at a big residence enchancment retailer and a number of other well-known restaurant manufacturers. Bridg has additionally entered a brand new trade vertical, signing their first cinema shoppers. Bridg’s platform permits studios to research and market to beforehand unknown moviegoers, giving studios entry to knowledge much like that of the most important streaming platform. I additionally wish to spotlight that we had a major restaurant shopper renew their relationship with Bridg and Cardlytics as a result of worth of our shared insights and concentrating on. This nonetheless represents a 400% improve in spending in comparison with when the advertiser was fined from every firm individually, and it is an actual testomony to the worth of the mixed insights from each organizations. Our early success is proving our acquisition thesis. The worth of Bridg is larger when mixed with Cardlytics given our complementary merchandise and knowledge units. And we count on Bridg to contribute extra as we join the 2 platforms to allow product-level provide constructs for our shoppers. Internationally, the open banking program with Nectar continues to make progress. We now have a number of hundred thousand clients which have related at the very least one account. As well as, new enterprise conversations are progressing effectively, together with potential open banking shoppers within the U.Okay. in gasoline, comfort, and retail. On one other word, we’re pleased to announce that Chris Suh joined the board of Cardlytics in September of 2021. Chris is at present the company vp and chief monetary officer of Microsoft Cloud AI. He brings a powerful background in accounting and finance to the board. With that, I’ll flip it over to Andy.Andy Christiansen — Chief Monetary Officer Thanks, Lynne. We noticed the core enterprise strengthen all through the quarter as we achieved sequential billings progress every month. And as Lynne mentioned, we additionally made thrilling progress on our strategic product and know-how initiatives. So let me evaluation our Q3 monetary outcomes. Complete billings elevated 59% 12 months over 12 months to $98.4 million. Cardlytics platform billings was $95.5 million, a rise of 54%. Complete income elevated 41% 12 months over 12 months to $65 million. Cardlytics platform income was $62.1 million, a rise of 35%. Adjusted contribution was $31.6 million, a rise of 60% 12 months over 12 months. Cardlytics platform adjusted contribution was $28.9 million, a rise of 46%. Adjusted contribution as a share of billings was 30.2% for the Cardlytics platform, which is barely under historic ranges and is non permanent as we migrate to Adverts Supervisor. It’s potential that we expertise related margins in This autumn, which can be our first full quarter with Adverts Supervisor, however that’s not our expectation. Our Cardlytics U.S. income elevated 32% 12 months over 12 months. In comparison with Q3 of 2019, income was solely up 12%. So, it is clear that we have been impacted by the financial disruptions of the pandemic for effectively over a 12 months. Within the U.S., we noticed year-over-year progress in every of our trade verticals except journey. Regardless of this continued enchancment, I wish to warning traders that advertisers are nonetheless dealing with macroeconomic headwinds associated to labor and provide shortages. Our Cardlytics U.Okay. income elevated 84% however continues to be down 11% in comparison with Q3 of 2019. Our U.Okay. enterprise has been impacted by the consequences of the pandemic even longer than the U.S. as a result of lockdowns and restrictions which have been in place for a lot of 2021. We’re paying shut consideration to the brand new Delta Plus variant. We’re hopeful that the U.Okay. enterprise will proceed to recuperate within the subsequent few quarters. Adjusted EBITDA was a lack of $5.2 million, in comparison with a lack of $0.6 million in Q3 of 2020. Our adjusted EBITDA loss consists of an incremental $7.8 million of working bills associated to our current acquisitions. We count on Dosh working bills, which is a lot of the incremental working expense, will come down over time as we proceed our integration efforts. There are just a few different objects outdoors of our EBITDA outcomes price mentioning. First, in Q3, we incurred integration prices of $1.7 million, down from the $14.1 million incurred throughout Q2 that contained a major quantity of diligence and transaction prices. We count on to incur some further prices subsequent quarter the place we count on it to be even lower than Q3. Second, our stock-based compensation elevated sequentially from $13.3 million in Q2 to $16.8 million in Q3. We talked about final quarter that we anticipated a rise associated to each the Bridg and Dosh acquisitions, in addition to just a few new hires. We count on inventory compensation to say no roughly 3 million to 4 million subsequent quarter. We ended Q3 with $237.5 million in money and money equivalents, in comparison with $250.7 million on the finish of Q2. A big portion of this decline pertains to the fee of acquisition and integration prices that we acknowledged in Q2. As well as, now we have one other $50 million nonetheless obtainable to us underneath our mortgage facility this time. Our stability sheet and liquidity stay sturdy. As we’re at all times evaluating our capital construction, we see no fast want to boost further funds. MAUs had been $170.6 million, a rise of 5.6% 12 months over 12 months and up from $167.6 million in Q2. The U.S. Financial institution launch was accomplished this quarter and contributed a few hundred foundation factors of year-over-year progress. Our natural progress charges are according to our expectations and is what we anticipate going ahead. ARPU through the third quarter was $0.36, in comparison with $0.29 within the prior 12 months. We count on ARPU to extend on a sequential and year-over-year foundation in This autumn as we count on income to proceed rising at a quicker fee than MAUs. We had 33.2 million shares excellent on the finish of Q3 in contrast with $33 million on the finish of Q2. Weighted common shares excellent through the quarter was $33.1 million, in comparison with $27.3 million throughout Q3 of 2020, which displays the issuance of three.9 million shares in March of 2021. Now turning to steering. In This autumn, we count on complete billings of between $105 million and $120 million, complete income of between $70 million and $80 million, and adjusted contribution of between $33 million and $38 million. It is price mentioning that our steering vary is wider than regular. On the one hand, now we have a wholesome gross sales pipeline and a scaled person platform that’s able to consuming budgets which can be considerably bigger than the budgets now we have at this time. Then again, our shoppers are nonetheless wrestling with provide chain points which have been exacerbated by labor shortages. We imagine the availability chain points are prone to worsen earlier than they get higher. And for a lot of firms, these points may persist for a while. It’s troublesome to estimate the potential affect this may occasionally have on our shoppers’ promoting budgets in This autumn. Our shoppers have not made any significant adjustments to their deliberate promoting campaigns but with the labor and provide points through the peak retail spending season, which restrains the will to drive client demand that is probably not able to being happy. And whereas we have been making good progress in lowering our reliance on particular industries and shoppers, our advert budgets are nonetheless closely concentrated, which heightens our sensitivity to those macroeconomic points. Our wider steering vary displays these dangers and uncertainties. As I stated final quarter, we stay very excited concerning the long-term potential of Cardlytics, Dosh, and Bridg in live performance with our strategic initiatives. We stay targeted on issues we are able to management, growing and sustaining sturdy relationships with all of our companions, and growing a know-how platform that may unlock the large potential of our channel. And regardless of the near-term threat I famous, I am feeling optimistic about the remainder of the 12 months and what’s in retailer for 2022. And with that, I am going to flip it again over to Lynne.Lynne Laube — Co-Founder, Chief Govt Officer, and Director Thanks, Andy. This quarter was a step in the correct path, and we imagine our enterprise will proceed trending towards a place of energy regardless of the challenges within the world economic system. I wish to thank Cardlytics workers for his or her exhausting work this quarter as we proceed via a sequence of necessary strategic adjustments. Execution stays our main focus, and now we have the staff and assets to realize our monetary objectives, be a strategic associate for our banks, and proceed our progress on product and know-how initiatives. We’re trying ahead to executing on our plan and ending out the 12 months sturdy. With that, I am going to open up the decision on your questions. Questions & Solutions:OperatorThank you. [Operator instructions] Our first query comes from the road of Doug Anmuth with J.P. Morgan. Your line is openDae Lee — J.P. Morgan — Analyst That is Dae Lee on for Doug. Thanks for taking the questions. I’ve two. So, you guys have talked about provide chain and labor additional points affecting your entrepreneurs. You guys have talked about this at 2Q earnings as effectively. So, I used to be curious since we quick ahead three months from now, what stage are your advertisers in with respect to produce and labor scarcity challenges relative to what you noticed in 2Q? I am curious if there — an outlook for vacation season has been dampened in some ways due to this. And are there any particular verticals that may have an effect on them extra by these challenges? After which as a follow-up to your feedback about contract renewals developing together with your FI companions, I am curious to listen to your newest ideas on competitors and what you’ve heard out of your companions on this entrance.Lynne Laube — Co-Founder, Chief Govt Officer, and Director Hey, that is Lynne. Thanks for the questions. On the availability chain and labor disruption points, Q3 was definitely fairly a bit higher than Q2. We truly didn’t have — to the very best of our data, we had no advertisers that had impacts in these points such that they pulled or lowered their marketing campaign spend with us. So, we didn’t see it in Q3 like we did in Q2. Nevertheless, we all know a lot of different individuals are seeing it. We definitely know that within the vacation season developing, I imply, simply at this time, I used to be studying articles about there’s not going to be turkey for Thanksgiving. So, we’re very cautious about it. So, it definitely has dampened the This autumn information that we gave you. It is why the vary is wider, and it is why it is definitely decrease than we might have thought and hoped earlier than these points occurred. So, they’re actual. We’ve not seen them in Q3 like we did in Q2. We’re cautious for This autumn. On the competitors query, there’s actually nobody on the market nonetheless within the U.S. and within the U.Okay., to the very best of my data, that’s competing with us when it comes to gaining access to financial institution’s knowledge and financial institution’s digital channels to publish focused promoting content material and content material that offers you the power to totally shut the loop. There are definitely individuals on the market who’re attempting to publish different forms of content material to a few of our financial institution companions. A few of that content material is complementary. A few of it’s type of noise. However when it comes to actually creating true transaction-based focused advertising and marketing and totally penetrating all of that spend and having the ability to use it for advertisers and for promoting functions, there is no such thing as a one on the market.Dae Lee — J.P. Morgan — Analyst Thanks.OperatorOur subsequent query comes from the road of Kyle Peterson with Needham. Your line is open.Kyle Peterson — Needham & Firm — Analyst Hey, good night, guys. Thanks for taking the questions. I simply wished to the touch slightly bit on the outlook and particularly when you guys have — what you guys have seen in October, whether or not it is qualitatively or quantitatively. As you guys talked about, that type of the expectation is that issues may get slightly higher — or issues may get slightly worse earlier than they get higher. So simply wish to see if there was any type of replace of what you guys are seeing both within the numbers or in simply conversations with advertisers type of quarter up to now to this point.Andy Christiansen — Chief Monetary Officer Hey, Kyle, that is Andy. Properly, look, we tried to be pretty clear that we’re being cautious about This autumn. We’ve not fairly seen the extent of disruption that we did a few quarters in the past. However I feel it is actually logical that as we get into type of the height demand season, buying season, that a number of the points which can be current are going to be careworn even additional. And I feel whereas we’ve not seen that but, even October, October has been principally what we have anticipated. However I feel that threat actually does stay. I feel that there is going to be a pull-forward of spend as, I feel, everybody is considering how do I safe presents and whatnot slightly bit earlier this 12 months. And I feel we will be in an excellent place to deal with a few of these issues. However because it pertains to advertisers, fascinated with whether or not they should be driving further demand, that is an enormous uncertainty for us. So, we’re being cautious, however I feel it is a very actual threat that we count on to see to a point.Kyle Peterson — Needham & Firm — Analyst All proper. That is tremendous useful. After which only a fast follow-up on Bridg. Clearly, the commentary appears very optimistic, and it is nice to listen to about a few of these new deal wins. How ought to we take into consideration type of the ramp schedule of a few of these current deal wins and after we’ll begin seeing them present up in ARR and income?Lynne Laube — Co-Founder, Chief Govt Officer, and Director Sure. That is a terrific query. So, when Bridg indicators a shopper, the very first thing the shopper has to do, after all, is give Bridg entry to the entire knowledge, after which Bridg has to type of clear and manage that knowledge. That may go as rapidly as two weeks, nevertheless it’s nonetheless — on common, for many shoppers, it is taking a few months, and that is simply the shoppers type of getting their knowledge organized in an order. So, we do not foresee Bridg’s capability to ship for these shoppers till in all probability two, perhaps three months after the offers are signed. After which you may — it is a SaaS-based mannequin. So, you may see type of the ARR three months later. Nevertheless, what most shoppers do is they begin by giving Bridg a certain quantity of knowledge, perhaps 1 million clients to see what Bridg can do with that knowledge, after which they provide them an increasing number of over time. That is fairly constant. So, it is normally someplace within the neighborhood of some shoppers give all the information immediately, so name it three months. However some shoppers actually do check and be taught for a few months earlier than they provide the entire knowledge. So wherever from three months to so long as 9 months, fairly frankly, perhaps even longer, earlier than you get to the total potential ARR SaaS-based quantity that that shopper goes to pay. After which it continues from there, clearly. Does that assist?Kyle Peterson — Needham & Firm — Analyst Yeah, yeah. That is extraordinarily useful. I am going to hop again within the queue. Thanks, guys.Lynne Laube — Co-Founder, Chief Govt Officer, and Director Thanks.OperatorOur subsequent query comes from the road of Jason Kreyer with Craig-Hallum. Your line is open.Unknown speaker That is Bailey on for Jason. Thanks for taking my name. Simply questioning what sort of traction you guys are seeing with self-serve, what sort of indications you may be getting from customers that is constructing in your long-term confidence and answer.Lynne Laube — Co-Founder, Chief Govt Officer, and Director Yeah. Thanks for asking the query. So, I wish to be clear with traders that we’re working with businesses principally for the primary time ever. We began constructing an company gross sales staff, for essentially the most half, this 12 months. Whereas we have had the occasional company shopper, previously, it was solely when the advertiser that we went on to referred us to that company. So, we’re now instantly calling on businesses for the primary time ever. And I feel a few of these stats that I gave type of present and show the momentum. That being stated, not all of these businesses are utilizing self-service. A lot of them are nonetheless testing and studying on the platform and letting us do the work for them. And self-service, after all, is accessible in its D1 model, which continues to be sturdy however rudimentary when it comes to what we in the end wish to have obtainable. So, for us, the way in which we glance about that is how a lot spend are we getting from businesses after which what number of businesses are, over time, doing an increasing number of of the work themselves. Proper now, I’d say a lot of the businesses are letting us do the work for them. There’s just a few exceptions, however we’re carefully watching how, over time, because the platform is confirmed to them, they then begin placing the arms on keyboard. And that may proceed to occur over the course of the remainder of this 12 months, into 2022 and possibly even into 2023, fairly frankly.Unknown speaker Recognize some shade on that. That is all for us. Thanks.OperatorOur subsequent query comes from the road of Aaron Kessler with Raymond James. Your line is open.Aaron Kessler — Raymond James — Analyst Nice. Thanks. A few questions. Simply you talked about type of the IDFA headwinds, not seeing that. And perhaps how are you fascinated with perhaps probably gaining some price range share with entrepreneurs now perhaps seeking to reallocate a number of the budgets? Have you ever had any conversations with respect to that? And I did discover the patron incentive funds elevated to, I imagine, 35% within the Q3. Any particulars round that and the way we needs to be fascinated with that going ahead? Thanks.Lynne Laube — Co-Founder, Chief Govt Officer, and Director Aaron, I could not hear what you stated, the very first a part of your query, the tailwinds that we’re seeing on what?Aaron Kessler — Raymond James — Analyst On the primary half was the — I feel the IDFA headwinds that the trade was saying. You stated that you just’re not seeing, clearly, any of that. Ideas on perhaps gaining some market share from a few of these entrepreneurs that have to reallocate.Lynne Laube — Co-Founder, Chief Govt Officer, and Director Yeah. I imply, sure, please. We’re clearly on the market being very, very clear with our advertisers that we aren’t impacted by these adjustments, that we are able to nonetheless attain the customers that they wish to attain in our extremely secured channel, and it’s positively a tailwind for us. It is clearly a reasonably current tailwind. I feel a variety of advertisers are nonetheless attempting to determine the way it has impacted their promoting technique. However we do suppose it would proceed to work in our favor going ahead, simply how a lot is tough to say, however it’s completely a tailwind. And then you definately’ve acquired a query about [Inaudible]. Do you wish to take that one, Andy?Andy Christiansen — Chief Monetary Officer Sure. The development that buyers [Inaudible]. So –Aaron Kessler — Raymond James — Analyst Yeah, I feel that was 35% in Q3, however my calculation are slightly bit greater than regular. Simply ideas on that.Andy Christiansen — Chief Monetary Officer Yeah, that is proper. That is proper. So, look, I feel actually what we noticed this quarter, the precise share of incentives does fluctuate from interval to interval for a lot of causes. We did see that through the pandemic, that the combo of advertisers actually, actually shifted, and we noticed a decrease incentive throughout that point. That has type of shifted again to be nearer to the place it has been traditionally. On high of that, we have talked slightly bit about sure banks who use a few of their FI share in sure durations to fund richer reward and will increase, the patron incentive, however then had been truly made entire on that. These are dynamics definitely that we see at this time that does trigger slightly little bit of noise on the billings margin. Now while you look down at our take — the adjusted contribution as a share of the billings, that could be very, very secure. We did have slightly bit decrease margin there than we have had in over the past couple of years, not that vital, however I’ll chalk that up slightly bit to only the non permanent shift into our Adverts Supervisor. And as we work to finalize a number of the optimization instruments, and so on., we’ll see that rebound right here within the subsequent quarter or two. However that is actually the dynamics this quarter.Aaron Kessler — Raymond James — Analyst That is useful. Thanks.OperatorThank you. I am displaying no additional questions within the queue. I’d now like to show the decision again over to Lynne for closing remarks.Lynne Laube — Co-Founder, Chief Govt Officer, and Director Properly, thanks, everybody, for becoming a member of the decision. As we have stated, I feel we proceed to see optimistic momentum with each our promoting base and the progress that we’re making on diversifying our promoting base and our promoting capabilities. So, regardless of a number of the short-term tailwinds, definitely from those we noticed in Q2 and a number of the ones that we’re cautiously awaiting This autumn, we really feel nice about this enterprise, and we’re as optimistic as we have ever been. So, thanks for becoming a member of, and we’ll be obtainable for questions after for many who wish to schedule calls.
