Fubo Delivered $305 Million Total Revenue in North America in Q2 2023, Achieved Double Digit Year-Over-Year Revenue, Subscriber Growth and Exceeded Guidance

Live TV Streaming Platform’s Q2 Progress Toward 2025 Profitability Goal:

  • Raised Full Year 2023 Guidance for North America
  • Reduced Net Loss by $41M
  • Achieved 7% Gross Margin
  • Posted Record Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) in North America

FuboTV Inc. (NYSE: FUBO), the leading sports-first live TV streaming platform, today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2023 and raised its previously stated full year 2023 guidance for North America.

Fubo exceeded North American guidance, achieving $305 million in revenue, up 41% year-over-year, and 1,167,000 paid subscribers, up 23% year-over-year. The Company delivered ad revenue in North America of $22.8 million in the second quarter, up 5% year-over-year. This marks an expected return to growth despite a challenged advertising market.

Double digit year-over-year growth was also posted by Fubo’s Rest of World (ROW) streaming business. Total revenue achieved was $8.2 million, up 40% year-over-year, while paid subscribers reached 394,000, up 14% year-over-year. ROW includes the results of Molotov, the French live TV streaming service acquired by Fubo in December 2021.

Notably, Fubo made marked progress toward its 2025 positive free cash flow goal. Compared to prior year, the company reduced net loss by $41 million (with a $12 million improvement in net cash used in operating activities), grew gross margin to 7% and, in North America, expanded ARPU by 13% to $81.62, marking an all-time record. Fubo also delivered a second quarter Adjusted EBITDA (AEBITDA) improvement of $40 million and a Free Cash Flow improvement of $9 million, compared to the second quarter of 2022.

Fubo closed the quarter with $299.7 million in cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash, and is confident that its cash position provides the company with sufficient liquidity to fund its operating plan until achieving expected positive cash flow in 2025.

Looking ahead to the third quarter 2023 in North America, Fubo is projecting 1,327,000 to 1,347,000 paid subscribers, representing 9% year-over-year growth at the midpoint, and revenue of $272.5 million to $277.5 million, representing 25% year-over-year growth at the midpoint.

The Company is also raising its previously stated full year 2023 guidance for North America. Fubo projects 1,565,000 to 1,585,000 million paid subscribers, representing 9% year-over-year growth at the midpoint, and revenue of $1.26 billion to $1.28 billion, representing 29% year-over-year growth at the midpoint.

Complete second quarter 2023 results are detailed in Fubo’s shareholder letter available on the company’s IR site.

“We are encouraged with our execution in the first half of the year, including posting year-over-year double digit revenue and subscriber growth in the second quarter, while meaningfully reducing our net loss by $41 million,” said David Gandler, co-founder and CEO, Fubo. “With an improving ad sales backdrop we remain on track to achieve our 2025 positive free cash flow target. We are as excited and as confident as ever about the opportunities ahead to leverage our resources on the back of key strategic additions to our platform, including over 35 regional sports networks (RSNs) and more than 125 FAST channels, as well as the Maximum Effort Channel in partnership with Ryan Reynolds and Maximum Effort.”

“Significant in Fubo’s strong second quarter results was our year-over-year revenue and subscriber growth in North America, which came in ahead of guidance,” said Edgar Bronfman Jr., executive chairman, Fubo. “This growth reaffirms the pricing power and strong appeal of our aggregated, sports-first content offering. As we significantly progress our path to profitability, Fubo is poised to continue to benefit from the ongoing market dynamics driving a decline in cable TV alongside the growing appeal of CTV. We are confident we are on the right path to achieve our 2025 profitability goal and create exceptional value for our shareholders.”

Live Webcast

Gandler and CFO John Janedis will host a live conference call today at 8:30 a.m. ET to deliver brief remarks followed by Q&A. The live webcast will be available on the Events & Presentations page of Fubo’s investor relations website. An archived replay will be available on Fubo’s website following the call. Participants should join the call 10 minutes in advance to ensure that they are connected prior to the event.

Basis of Presentation – Continuing Operations

In connection with the dissolution of Fubo Gaming, Inc. and termination of Fubo Sportsbook in October 2022, the assets and liabilities and the operations of our former wagering reportable segment have been presented as discontinued operations in our consolidated financial statements. With respect to our continuing operations, we operate as a single reportable segment. Financial information presented in this release reflects Fubo’s results on a continuing operations basis, which excludes our former wagering reportable segment. Prior periods have been recast to conform to this presentation.

Key Performance Metrics and Non-GAAP Measures

Paid Subscribers

We believe the number of paid subscribers is a relevant measure to gauge the size of our user base. Paid subscribers is defined as total subscribers that have completed registration with Fubo, have activated a payment method (only reflects one paying user per plan), from which Fubo has collected payment from in the month ending the relevant period. Users who are on a free (trial) period are not included in this metric.

Average Revenue per User (ARPU)

Beginning in the third quarter of 2022, Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) is calculated using Subscription revenue and Advertising revenue on a GAAP basis. Previously, ARPU was calculated using Platform Bookings, which consisted of Subscription revenue and Advertising revenue, adjusted for deferred revenue.

We believe ARPU provides useful information for investors to gauge the revenue generated per subscriber on a monthly basis. ARPU, with respect to a given period, is defined as total Subscription revenue and Advertising revenue recognized in such period, divided by the average daily paid subscribers in such period, divided by the number of months in such period. Advertising revenue, like Subscription revenue, is primarily driven by the number of subscribers to our platform and per-subscriber viewership such as the type of, and duration of, content watched on platform. We believe ARPU is an important metric for both management and investors to evaluate the Company’s core operating performance and measure our subscriber monetization, as well as evaluate unit economics, payback on subscriber acquisition cost and lifetime value per subscriber. In addition, we believe that presenting a geographic breakdown for North America ARPU and ROW ARPU allows for a more meaningful assessment of the business because of the significant differences in both Subscription revenue and Advertising revenue generated on a per subscriber basis in North America when compared to ROW due to our current subscription pricing models and advertising monetization in the two geographic regions.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure defined as Net Loss from Continuing Operations, adjusted for depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, income tax benefit, other expenses, and one-time non-cash expenses.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin (GAAP)

Gross Profit is defined as Revenue less Subscriber related expenses and Broadcasting and transmission. Gross Margin is defined as Gross Profit divided by Revenue. We believe these measures are useful because they represent key profitability metrics for our business and are used by management to evaluate the performance of our business, including measuring the cost to deliver our product to subscribers against revenue.

Free Cash Flow

Free Cash Flow is a non-GAAP measure defined as net cash used in operating activities - continuing operations, reduced by capital expenditures (consisting of purchases of property and equipment and capitalization of internal use software). We believe Free Cash Flow is an important liquidity measure of the cash that is available, after capital expenditures, for operational expenses, investments in our business, strategic acquisitions, and for certain other activities such as repaying debt obligations and stock repurchases. Free Cash Flow is a key financial indicator used by management. Free Cash Flow is useful to investors as a liquidity measure because it measures our ability to generate or use cash. The use of Free Cash Flow as an analytical tool has limitations due to the fact that it does not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures. Because of these limitations, Free Cash Flow should be considered along with other operating and financial performance measures presented in accordance with GAAP.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Certain measures used in this release, including Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow, are non-GAAP financial measures. We believe these are useful financial measures for investors as they are supplemental measures used by management in evaluating our core operating performance. Our non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and you should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for an analysis of our results under GAAP. There are a number of limitations related to the use of these non-GAAP financial measures versus their nearest GAAP equivalents. First, these non-GAAP financial measures are not a substitute for GAAP financial measures. Second, these non-GAAP financial measures may not provide information directly comparable to measures provided by other companies in our industry, as those other companies may calculate their non-GAAP financial measures differently.

The following table includes a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.
