NEW YORK, May 11, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Getty Images Holdings, Inc. (“Getty Images” or the “Company”) (NYSE: GETY), a preeminent global visual content creator and marketplace, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023.

“We are pleased to report a quarter of revenue growth, all of which is organic, despite foreign exchange pressures, driven by strong subscription growth, subscription renewal rates, new customer growth and increased consumption of our content,” said Craig Peters, Chief Executive Officer of Getty Images. “The increased customer commitment and consumption is underpinned by the uniqueness and quality of our content offerings. We are focused on expanding this differentiation alongside embracing new capabilities to increase the value we provide to our customers and create new and recurring revenue streams.”

First Quarter 2023 Financial Summary:

  • Revenue of $235.6 million grew 2% year over year. On a currency neutral basis, revenues increased 5.5%.
    • Creative revenue of $146.5 million, down 1.3% year over year and up 1.9% on a currency neutral basis.
    • Editorial revenue of $84.6 million, up 7.5% year over year and 11.3% on a currency neutral basis.
    • Annual Subscription Revenue as a percentage of total revenue grew to over 50%, up from 48.3% in Q1’22 and up from a finish of 49% for the full year 2022.
  • Net Income of $3.2 million, down from $25.1 million from Q1’22. Included in Q1’23 was a $9.5 million unrealized loss related to the change in fair value of the Company’s Euro term loan and a $2.1 million loss related to the mark-to-market on an interest rate swap, compared with gains of $5.6 million on the Euro term loan and $12.1 million on the interest rate swap in Q1’22. Net Income Margin was 1.4% compared to 10.9% in Q1’22.
  • Adjusted EBITDA* of $76.1 million, down 2% year over year due to the impact of foreign exchange on revenue and the incremental expenses of operating as a public company. On a currency neutral basis, adjusted EBITDA was up 2.2%. Adjusted EBITDA Margin* was 32.3% compared to 33.6% in Q1’22.
  • Adjusted EBITDA less capex* was $60.6 million, down 1.4% year over year and up 3.8% on a currency neutral basis.

Liquidity and Balance Sheet:

  • Net cash provided by operating activities of $31.9 million in Q1’23, compared to $49.4 million in the prior year period.
  • Free cash flow* of $16.4 million in Q1’23, compared to $33.1 million in the prior year period.
  • Ending cash balance on March 31, 2023 was $116.8 million, up $18.9 million from the ending balance on December 31, 2022 and a decrease of $94 million from March 31, 2022. The Company had $80 million available through its Revolver at quarter end, which remained undrawn, for total liquidity of $196.8 million.
  • On May 4, 2023, the Company amended the Revolver, upsizing the facility to $150 million and extending the maturity to May 4, 2028. The amended facility provides the Company with increased liquidity and greater operating flexibility.
  • The Company’s total debt was $1.441 billion, which included $300 million in senior notes and a term loan balance of $1.141 billion, consisting of $684.8 million in USD and $456.5 million in USD equivalent of Euros, converted using exchange rates as of March 31, 2023. After the close of the quarter, in line with its commitment to further delever the balance sheet, the Company made a voluntary repayment on the USD term loan of $20 million in May from balance sheet cash.

* Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted EBITDA less capex, and Free Cash Flow are non-GAAP financial measures. Refer to the Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Financial Measures section below.

Note: The Key Operating Metrics outlined are the metrics that provide management with the most immediate understanding of the drivers of business performance and our ability to deliver shareholder return, track to financial targets and prioritize customer satisfaction. Note, KPI comparisons to periods prior to trailing twelve-months ended March 31, 2023 reflect some COVID-19 impact.

Annual subscription – includes products with a duration of 12 months or longer

1 Beginning with the three months ended September 30, 2022, the Company made two changes to its reporting that has some impact on reported KPI’s. First, activity for LATAM, Turkey and Israel, which was previously excluded from these metrics, is now included due to completion of a system migration. Additionally, the method by which we aggregate our customer accounts was updated to better align with our internal sales CRM system. We have not restated historical periods given the immaterial impact to the KPI’s, except for LTM total active annual subscribers and LTM annual subscriber revenue retention rate for which the legacy reporting format is detailed in noted 3 and 5 below.
2 The count of total customers who made a purchase within the reporting period based on billed revenue.
3 The count of customers who were on an annual subscription product during the reporting period. Absent the reporting changes noted in Note 1, LTM total active annual subscribers would have been 135 thousand, up 66% year on year.
4 A count of the number of paid downloads by our customers in the reporting period. Excludes downloads from Editorial Subscriptions, Editorial feeds and certain API structured deals, including bulk unlimited deals. Excludes downloads starting in Q3’22 tied to a two-year deal signed with Amazon in July 2022, as the magnitude of the potential download volume over the deal term could result in significant fluctuations in this metric without corresponding impact to revenue in the same period.
5 This calculates retention of total revenue for customers on an annual subscription product, comparing the customer’s total billed revenue (inclusive of both annual subscription and non-annual subscription products) in the LTM period to the prior LTM period. Absent the reporting changes noted in Note 1 above, LTM annual subscriber retention rate would have been 99.0%.
6 A count of the total images and videos in our content library as of the reporting date.​

7 A measure of the percentage of total paid customer downloaders who are video downloaders. The underlying calculation of this metric was changed vs. previously reported metrics. This change was made to exclude the impact of downloader activity from our free trial subscriptions which are skewed entirely to stills-only content.
8 The Company launched Unsplash+ during the three months ended December 31, 2022. This new Unsplash subscription will now be included within these KPI’s from the launch date forward. The impact is not yet material.

First Quarter 2023 Business Highlights:

  • Announced collaboration with NVIDIA to develop and distribute responsible generative text-to-image and text-to-video offerings. The collaboration will see Getty Images and NVIDIA working to commercialize responsible AI models to bring new capabilities to their collective customers. 
  • Announced exclusive, multi-year global partnerships with Sky News and Anadolu to represent their world-class quality footage.
  • In partnership with AI visual tools developer BRIA, deployed one-click background removal functionality to iStock subscribers, allowing customers to get to the exact image they need with increased time and budget efficiency.

Financial Outlook for Full Year 2023

The following tables summarize Getty Images fiscal year 2023 guidance:

  2023 Guidance
Revenue $936 million to $963 million
Revenue Growth YoY 1.0% to 4.0%
Revenue Growth, Currency Neutral 1.5% to 4.5%
Adjusted EBITDA $305 million to $315 million
Adjusted EBITDA Growth YoY 0.4% to 3.6%
Adjusted EBITDA Growth, Currency Neutral 0.7% to 4.0%

Currency neutral growth rates have been updated to remain aligned with Revenue and adjusted EBITDA guidance, which remain unchanged both on a dollar and year over year growth basis.

Assuming foreign currency rates remain at current levels, the guidance includes the following impacts from FX on revenue and EBITDA:

  FX Headwind FX Tailwind FX Headwind

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In order to assist investors in understanding the core operating results that our management uses to evaluate the business and for financial planning, we present the following non-GAAP measures: (1) Adjusted EBITDA, (2) Adjusted EBITDA Margin, (3) Adjusted EBITDA less capex and (4) Free Cash Flow. The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

The Company believes that these measures are relevant and provide useful information widely used by analysts, investors and other interested parties in our industry to provide a baseline for evaluating and comparing our operating performance, and in the case of free cash flow, our liquidity results. We also evaluate our revenue on an as reported (U.S. GAAP) and currency neutral basis. We believe presenting currency neutral information provides valuable supplemental information regarding our comparable results, consistent with how we evaluate our performance internally.

Reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP measures are provided below.

The Company does not reconcile its forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the corresponding U.S. GAAP measures, due to variability and difficulty in making accurate forecasts and projections and/or certain information not being ascertainable or accessible; and because not all of the information, such as foreign currency impacts necessary for a quantitative reconciliation of these forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure, is available to the Company without unreasonable efforts. For the same reasons, the Company is unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information. The Company provides non-GAAP financial measures that it believes will be achieved, however it cannot accurately predict all of the components of the adjusted calculations and the U.S. GAAP measures may be materially different than the non-GAAP measures.
