Financial report summary

  • Risks Related to Our Business and Strategy
  • The loss of a contract upon which we rely for a significant portion of our revenues could adversely affect our operating results.
  • Data suppliers may withdraw data that we have previously collected or withhold data from us in the future, leading to our inability to provide products and services to our clients, which could lead to a decrease in revenue and loss of client confidence.
  • Our business is subject to substantial competition from a diverse group of competitors. New products and pricing strategies introduced by these competitors could decrease our market share or cause us to lower our prices in a manner that reduces our revenues and operating margin.
  • The extent to which the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, including the resulting global economic uncertainty, and measures taken in response to the pandemic could continue to impact our business and future results of operations and financial condition will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and difficult to predict.
  • The failure to attract, recruit, onboard and retain qualified personnel could hinder our ability to successfully execute our business strategy, which could have a material adverse effect on our financial position and operating results.
  • If we cannot maintain our culture as we grow, we could lose the innovation, teamwork, passion and focus on execution that we believe contribute to our success and our business may be harmed.
  • Failure to keep up with rapidly changing technologies and marketing practices could cause our products and services to become less competitive or obsolete, which could result in loss of market share and decreased revenues and results of operations.
  • Acquisition and divestiture activities may disrupt our ongoing business and may involve increased expenses, and we may not realize the financial and strategic goals contemplated at the time of a transaction, all of which could adversely affect our business and growth prospects.
  • Our operations outside the U.S. are subject to risks that may harm the Company’s business, financial condition or results of operations.
  • A significant breach of the confidentiality of the information we hold or of the security of our or our customers’, suppliers’, or other partners’ computer systems could be detrimental to our business, reputation and results of operations.
  • Unfavorable publicity and negative public perception about our industry could adversely affect our business and operating results.
  • Interruptions or delays in service from our third-party data center providers could impair our ability to deliver our products and services to our customers, resulting in customer dissatisfaction, damage to our reputation, loss of customers, limited growth and reduction in revenue.
  • If the use of “third-party cookies” or other tracking technology is rejected by Internet users, restricted or otherwise subject to unfavorable regulation, blocked or limited by technical changes on end users’ devices, or our and our clients’ ability to use data on our platform is otherwise restricted, all of which could materially impact our business.
  • Risks Related to Government Regulation and Taxation
  • Changes in legislative, judicial, regulatory, or cultural environments relating to information collection and use may limit our ability to collect and use data. Such developments could cause revenues to decline, increase the cost and availability of data and adversely affect the demand for our products and services.
  • Changes in tax laws or regulations that are applied adversely to us or our customers may have a material
  • adverse effect on our business, cash flow, financial condition or results of operations.
  • Risks Related to Intellectual Property
  • Third parties may claim that we are infringing their intellectual property and we could suffer significant litigation or licensing expenses or be prevented from selling products or services. Additionally, third parties may infringe our intellectual property and we may suffer competitive injury or expend significant resources enforcing our rights.
Management Discussion
  • Total revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 were $104.7 million, a $14.5 million, or 16.1% increase from the same quarter a year ago. The increase was due to Subscription growth of $13.8 million, or 19.2%, primarily due to new logo deals and upsell to existing customers partially offset by lower variable revenue. Marketplace and Other growth was $0.7 million, or 3.9%, primarily due to Data Marketplace growth. On a geographic basis, U.S. revenue increased $14.2 million, or 16.9%. International revenue increased $0.3 million, or 5.1%. Revenues in the quarter ended September 30, 2020 were negatively impacted by $0.7 million due to short-term service concessions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
