PERI .... $23.50....Hivestack has screens all over the world already !! This tells me that Perion does not complete an M&A until everything is in place. The next M&A could already be in place. I'm going to continue to hold as it seems to me this is way undervalued.. Hope I'm correct.

Delivers Annual Year-Over-Year Growth of 16% in Revenue, 18% in GAAP Net Income and 28% in Adjusted EBITDA

NEW YORK & TEL AVIV, Israel, February 07, 2024--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Perion Network Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: PERI), a technology leader in connecting advertisers to consumers across all major digital channels, today reported its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2023.

"Our fourth quarter and annual results showed notable growth in Search, CTV and Retail Media, further demonstrating the positive impact of our business diversification and continued focus on technology and innovation. In 2023, we generated industry-leading adjusted EBITDA to Contribution ex-TAC margins, giving us a solid foundation for 2024," stated Tal Jacobson, Perion’s CEO.

"As advertising budgets shifted between channels, we capitalized on these trends and delivered profitable growth well ahead of the digital advertising market for 2023. We also advanced our growth strategy with the acquisition of Hivestack, a leading innovative full-stack programmatic digital out-of-home (DOOH) company with an extensive global footprint. The acquisition of Hivestack, alongside our existing offering, solidifies Perion’s differentiated offer to our customers. It’s a significant entry into the fast growing DOOH channel, which opens up new synergistic opportunities within our suite of solutions for brands and retailers. By adding critical touch points to the entire consumer journey across channels such as CTV, Audio, Out Of Home, including our products for Near-store and In-Store screens - we are transforming our Retail Media suite into a pure multi-channel, full consumer journey solution."

"Additionally, our strong cash flow from operations of $155 million for the full year of 2023, positions us well to execute additional acquisitions, further expanding our solutions and enhancing shareholder value," Jacobson concluded.

We have not provided an outlook for GAAP Income from operations or reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA guidance to GAAP Income from operations, the closest corresponding GAAP measure, because we do not provide guidance for certain of the reconciling items on a consistent basis due to the variability and complexity of these items, including but not limited to the measures and effects of our stock-based compensation expenses directly impacted by unpredictable fluctuation in our share price and amortization in connection with future acquisitions. Hence, we are unable to quantify these amounts without unreasonable efforts.

Revenue: Revenue increased by 12% to $234.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2023 from $209.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2022.

The company launches WAVE, a generative AI-powered dynamic audio advertising solution

NEW YORK & TEL AVIV, November 01, 2023--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Perion Network Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: PERI), a global technology company whose synergistic solutions serve all major digital advertising channels - including search, social, display, and video/CTV, today reported its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2023.

"Once again, our business results proved that our strategically diversified model gives us the agility to deliver continued growth," stated Tal Jacobson, Perion’s CEO. "Despite macroeconomic headwinds, our third-quarter year-over-year revenue and adjusted EBITDA increased 17% and 29%, respectively. These results were made possible by the ability to leverage our technological capabilities and focus resources on the strongest industry verticals to achieve top-line profitability and margin expansion. Specifically, our Retail Media solutions are tracking to significantly exceed our annual revenue goal for 2023."

"Our diversification remains a key differentiator for Perion, powered by exceptional execution and ongoing investment in technology," added Mr. Jacobson.

Introducing WAVE

Reaffirming its commitment to technological innovation, Perion expands its advertiser suite of solutions with the introduction of WAVE (Waveform Audio Voice Engine), a generative AI-powered dynamic audio solution that enables advertisers to generate personalized audio advertising messages at scale. The power of the solution is based on advanced algorithmic AI processing which combines first-party data with voice, reaching consumer audiences with tailored audio messages that adapt in real time to parameters such as weather, location, daypart, and many others.

"We are focused on developing technology that creates deeper and more meaningful consumer experiences," explained Mr. Jacobson. "WAVE represents our commitment to changing the game for advertisers, enabling us to tap into lucrative channels and create entirely new categories. We envision a future where every consumer interaction is customized, localized and commerce-enabled."

Albertsons is an early adopter that has seamlessly integrated WAVE into several successful campaigns and is now looking to scale the solution more broadly.

"When Perion introduced us to the AI script and voice, we were blown away. It was very hard to detect that it was an actual AI voice – right down to the nuances of how certain products are pronounced, and the annunciation. To see the machine actually learning those dialogue differences was super important to us," said Tony Colvin, Director – Paid Media, Albertsons Companies.

WAVE is launching into the Retail vertical, adding a richer, multi-dimensional capability to each consumer touchpoint. Perion plans to quickly roll out WAVE to additional verticals, including QSR - Quick-Service Restaurants, automotive, and travel.

2 We have not provided an outlook for GAAP Income from operations or reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA guidance to GAAP Income from operations, the closest corresponding GAAP measure, because we do not provide guidance for certain of the reconciling items on a consistent basis due to the variability and complexity of these items, including but not limited to the measures and effects of our stock-based compensation expenses directly impacted by unpredictable fluctuation in our share price and amortization in connection with future acquisitions. Hence, we are unable to quantify these amounts without unreasonable efforts.

3 Calculated at revenue guidance midpoint. Adjusted EBITDA year-over-year growth calculated based on $167 million.

Financial Comparison for the Third Quarter of 2023

Revenue: Revenue increased 17% to $185.3 million in the third quarter of 2023 from $158.6 million in the third quarter of 2022. Display Advertising revenue increased 14% year-over-year, accounting for 54% of total revenue, primarily due to a 112% year-over-year increase in Retail revenue to $13.0 million and a 39% year-over-year increase in CTV revenue to $7.9 million. Search Advertising revenue increased 20% year-over-year, accounting for 46% of revenue, with 86% increase in Average Daily Searches and 16% increase in the number of publishers.

Traffic Acquisition Costs and Media Buy ("TAC"): TAC amounted to $108.0 million, or 58% of revenue, in the third quarter of 2023, compared with $93.6 million, or 59% of revenue, in the third quarter of 2022. The margin expansion was primarily attributed to favorable product mix and media buying optimization through our platform.

GAAP Net Income: GAAP net income increased by 28% to $32.8 million in the third quarter of 2023 compared with $25.6 million in the third quarter of 2022.

Non-GAAP Net Income: Non-GAAP net income was $42.4 million, or 23% of revenue, in the third quarter of 2023, compared with $29.9 million, or 19% of revenue, in the third quarter of 2022. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP net income is included in this press release.

Adjusted EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA was $42.7 million, or 23% of revenue (and 55% of Contribution ex-TAC) in the third quarter of 2023, compared with $33.0 million, or 21% of revenue (and 51% of Contribution ex-TAC) in the third quarter of 2022. A reconciliation of GAAP income from operations to Adjusted EBITDA is included in this press release.

Cash Flow from Operations: Net cash provided by operating activities in the third quarter of 2023 was $40.1 million, compared with $34.7 million in the third quarter of 2022.

Net cash: As of September 30, 2023, cash and cash equivalents, short-term bank deposits and marketable securities amounted to $523.6 million, compared with $429.6 million as of December 31, 2022.

TEL AVIV & NEW YORK, August 02, 2023--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Perion Network Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: PERI), a global multi-channel advertising technology company that delivers synergistic solutions across all major channels of digital advertising – including search advertising, social media, display, video and CTV advertising – today reported its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2023.

"Our business results demonstrate, once again, our consistent ability to outperform the industry. We accomplish that through focusing on profitability and margin expansion, driven by efficiency and innovation", stated Tal Jacobson, Perion’s CEO. "Our growth in second-quarter revenue and adjusted EBITDA - up 22% and 45% respectively - highlights our ability to identify and seize lucrative market segments with agility. Our diversification strategy, powered by exceptional execution and investment in technology, has formed the foundation of a business model built for growth."

Financial Comparison for the Second Quarter of 2023

Revenue: Revenue increased by 22% to $178.5 million in the second quarter of 2023 from $146.7 million in the second quarter of 2022. Display Advertising revenue increased 22% year-over-year, accounting for 56% of total revenue, primarily due to a 14% year-over-year increase in video revenue to $40.9 million and 104% year-over-year increase in CTV revenue to $7.2 million. Search Advertising revenue increased by 21% year-over-year, accounting for 44% of revenue, primarily due to a 68% increase in Average Daily Searches and a 28% increase in the number of publishers.

Non-GAAP Measures
Non-GAAP financial measures consist of GAAP financial measures adjusted to exclude certain items. This press release includes certain non-GAAP measures, including Contribution Ex-TAC, Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP net income and Non-GAAP earning per share.

Contribution Ex-TAC presents revenue reduced by traffic acquisition costs and media buy, reflecting a portion of our revenue that must be directly passed to publishers or advertisers and presents our revenue excluding such items. We believe Contribution Ex-TAC is a useful measure in assessing the performance of the Company because it facilitates a consistent comparison against our core business without considering the impact of traffic acquisition costs and media buy related to revenue reported on a gross basis.

Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA") is defined as income from operations excluding stock-based compensation expenses, depreciation, amortization of acquired intangible assets, retention and other acquisition-related expenses and gains and losses recognized with respect to changes in the fair value of contingent consideration.

Non-GAAP net income and Non-GAAP earnings per share are defined as net income and net earnings per share excluding stock-based compensation expenses, retention and other acquisition-related expenses, revaluation of acquisition-related contingent consideration, amortization of acquired intangible assets and the related taxes thereon, non-recurring expenses, foreign exchange gains and losses associated with ASC-842, as well as gains and losses recognized with respect to changes in fair value of contingent consideration.

The purpose of such adjustments is to give an indication of our performance exclusive of non-cash charges and other items that are considered by management to be outside of our core operating results. These non-GAAP measures are among the primary factors management uses in planning for and forecasting future periods. Furthermore, the non-GAAP measures are regularly used internally to understand, manage and evaluate our business and make operating decisions, and we believe that they are useful to investors as a consistent and comparable measure of the ongoing performance of our business. However, our non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Additionally, these non-GAAP financial measures may differ materially from the non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. Due to the high variability and difficulty in making accurate forecasts and projections of some of the information excluded from these projected measures, together with some of the excluded information not being ascertainable or accessible, we are unable to quantify certain amounts that would be required for such presentation without unreasonable effort. Consequently, no reconciliation of the forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures is included in this press release. A reconciliation between results on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis is provided in the last table of this press release.

The words "will," "believe," "expect," "intend," "plan," "should", "estimate" and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements.

Perion Network Positioned for Growth in Search Advertising with Enhanced Bing Offering, Says Analyst
3:06 pm ET July 10, 2023 (Benzinga) Print
Needham analyst Laura Martin reiterates Perion Network Ltd (NASDAQ: PERI) with a Buy and a $42 price target.

Perion (PERI) reports gross revenues in two categories each quarter: 1) Display Advertising; and 2) Search Advertising. In 1Q23, the Search Advertising segment represented 45% of PERI's total gross revenues, similar to Search's 44% for FY22.

In this report, the analyst did a deep dive into how PERI makes money in Search and why she expects this revenue stream to grow.

Historically, the primary reason customers chose Microsoft Corp (NASDAQ: MSFT) Bing was a higher share of ad revenues, the analyst believes.

ChatGPT has added a compelling new selling point for Bing, and PERI is having an easier time getting new clients to switch to Bing, which should drive faster growth, she believes.

PERI's next CEO, Tal Jacobson, has led the Search segment since 2018 and has overseen its rapid revenue growth.

PERI is a distributor for Bing globally. Microsoft has given PERI the right to put Bing on browsers, devices, and websites globally for a share of the ad dollars on Bing's results pages.

If a consumer uses the Firefox browser, Bing is the default search engine. That is, every time a consumer enters a keyword into the search box, Bing delivers results with ads. If Firefox is PERI's client, PERI gets a revenue share of every Bing ad dollar earned on Firefox until the contract ends.

Lenovo's laptops use Bing as their default search engine. If Lenovo is a client of PERI's, then every time a consumer searches using Bing, PERI gets a rev share of the ad revs on each search results page.

Of every $100 an advertiser pays MSFT for Bing, Martin estimates that MSFT keeps 15%-25% and pays out 75%-85% to PERI. She estimates that PERI typically keeps 25%-30% and pays out 45%-60% to the publisher.

Once PERI launches Bing for a new client, 100% of the ad units on Bing's search results are exclusive to PERI. Said another way, PERI gets paid a revenue share of every ad on all Bing search results on that publisher/device/ browser, etc. (i.e., client) until the contract ends.

Today, PERI sells Bing to enterprises in 62 countries where MSFT has a critical mass of advertisers.

After PERI convinces a new client to use Bing as its default search engine, it must get MSFT's approval before launch. Approvals and tech integration typically take 1 to 3 months, depending on the new client. Both represent material barriers to entry.

There are a total of about a dozen total distributors for Bing globally, Martin estimates. She believes PERI is among the largest, especially since Microsoft's Advertising division awarded PERI's Search subsidiary (called CodeFuel) top honors as its 2021 Supply Partner of the Year for EMEA.

A key positive of PERI's Search revenues is the positive working capital aspects of the Bing deal.

Spruce Point shorts ad-tech firm Perion Network
Tue, May 23, 2023 at 6:21 AM PDT

PERI
-1.15%

(Reuters) -Spruce Point Capital Management said on Tuesday it was short on ad technology firm Perion Network, as it had concerns about the accuracy of the company's "financial reporting, efficacy of its product suite, and the sustainability of its growth."

Shares of the company fell 4.9% in trading before the bell.

"Perion has a history of business model pivots that spark unsustainable improvements in performance and share price," said the New York-based short-seller, which issued a "strong sell" rating on Perion.

"We believe this time is no different and will end poorly for investors."

Perion did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Spruce Point said it sees a 25% to 40% long-term downside risk to Perion’s share price and it was concerned about the company's "extreme dependency" on its partnership with Microsoft.

The investment firm said in its report that in 2021 and 2022, Perion reported that 37% and 35% of the company's revenue came from Microsoft.

"Our first quarter reflected search numbers were boosted by a significant increase of 29% in the number of publishers, they sense the potential and want to be part of it. As a result, average daily traffic increased dramatically by nearly 50% year-over-year and are now close to a 30 million monetized search a day on an average basis.

We believe that the massive media attention to ChatGPT 4 has driven a material portion of this and that will continue to see growth that exceeds our normative project. Microsoft being has a real competitive advantage now and that cascade immediately to our business." - Doron, CC

Company raises Annual Guidance, Reflecting Continued Media Margin Expansion and Strong Growth Drivers

TEL AVIV, Israel & NEW YORK, May 03, 2023--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Perion Network Ltd. (NASDAQ & TASE: PERI), a global advertising technology company whose synergistic solutions are delivered across the three primary channels of digital advertising – ad search, social media, and display/video/CTV advertising – today reported its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023.

Doron Gerstel, Perion’s CEO, stated, "We continue to outperform the adtech industry despite the challenging macro environment, as reflected in our ongoing market share gains and increased efficiencies, which are made possible by our innovative technology. All of these collectively, are driving top-line growth and margin expansion".

"We are growing in the areas where technology matters most," added Mr. Gerstel. "These include video – which continues to represent an increasing portion of our display revenue; our fast-growing retail media channel; our privacy-first targeting solution SORT®, and our search advertising solution. The rapid emergence of ChatGPT in the market and Microsoft’s mission to further expand the role of AI within search, has elevated user interest in Bing. As a result, we experienced a 49% year-over-year growth in average daily searches, as well as a lift in new publishers".

"Our ongoing margin and top-line growth are the result of our ability to consolidate cross channel data signals in a central place – Perion’s iHUB. Advanced proprietary AI technology powers a centralized bidding system that maximizes unit revenue (CPM), while reducing media cost and simultaneously meeting our customer ROAS (Return on Ad Spend) expectations," added Mr. Gerstel.

Financial Comparison for the First Quarter of 2023

Revenue: Revenue increased by 16% to $145.2 million in the first quarter of 2023 from $125.3 million in the first quarter of 2022. Display Advertising Revenue increased by 16% year-over-year, accounting for 55% of total revenue. Growth was primarily due to a 26% increase in video revenue, 12% increase in CTV revenue, 93% increase in SORT® customer spending and a 60% year-over-year increase in Retail media revenue. Search Advertising Revenue increased by 15% year-over-year, accounting for 45% of revenue, primarily due to a 29% increase in the number of publishers and a 49% increase in average daily searches, offsetting a 22% decrease in RPM.

Traffic Acquisition Costs ("TAC"): TAC amounted to $79.9 million, or 55% of revenue, in the first quarter of 2023, compared with $71.0 million, or 57% of revenue, in the first quarter of 2022. The improvement in media margin was primarily due to our proprietary iHUB technology which optimizes media buying and reduces our media cost, as well as Search and Display advertising product mix.

Net Income: On a GAAP basis, net income increased by 54% to $23.8 million in the first quarter of 2023 from $15.5 million in the first quarter of 2022. Non-GAAP net income was $29.9 million, or 21% of revenue, in the first quarter of 2023, compared with $20.7 million, or 17% of revenue, in the first quarter of 2022. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP net income is included in this press release.

Adjusted EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA was $31.3 million, or 22% of revenue and 48% of revenue ex-TAC, in the first quarter of 2023, compared with $22.7 million, or 18% of revenue and 42% of revenue ex-TAC, in the first quarter of 2022. A reconciliation of GAAP Net Income to Adjusted EBITDA is included in this press release.

Cash Flow from Operations: Net cash provided by operating activities in the first quarter of 2023 was $17.8 million, compared with $23.6 million in the first quarter of 2022. Operating cash flow was affected by the shift of approximately $8 million in customer collection from March 2023 to April 2023 and a one-time change in working capital needs.

Cash, cash equivalents, short-term bank deposits and marketable securities: As of March 31, 2023, cash and cash equivalents, short-term bank deposits and marketable securities amounted to $436.3 million, compared with $429.6 million as of December 31, 2022. The $6.7 million increase is primarily a result of $17.8 million in cash from operations, partially offset by $13.3 million cash paid in connection with acquisitions.

Anyone have a clue as to why two Form T trades (presumably the same person selling at the same moment) went through after hours at $3.42?

I assume it's someone who came back from their summer vacation, briefly checked their stock holdings, and didn't notice there's been a reverse split earlier this week....

That makes sense, Thanks! I suppose they are trying to create a smart platform for getting the best value for a company's advertising dollars when the don't have specific targetting requirements.

I think what it means is their customers have budgets that include scheduled ongoing spending with advertising companies(as part of an ongoing contract) and separate funds(discretionary) to spend on what they consider the best option for advertising campaigns and their goal is to get more of this discretionary campaign money.

That is what I take from it.
