CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
Statements in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (“Quarterly Report”) not based on historical facts are “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. These statements include statements about Sprout Social, Inc.’s (“Sprout Social”) plans, objectives, strategies, financial performance and outlook, trends, prospects or future events and involve known and unknown risks that are difficult to predict. As a result, our actual financial results, performance, achievements or prospects may differ materially from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by the use of words such as “believe,” “may,” “will,” “estimate,” “continue,” “anticipate,” “outlook,” “intend,” “expect,” “predict,” “plan,” “strategy,” “potential” and similar expressions, or the negative of these terms and similar expressions, as they relate to Sprout Social, our business and our management. Forward-looking statements are necessarily based upon estimates and assumptions that, while considered reasonable by Sprout Social and our management based on their knowledge and understanding of the business and industry, are inherently uncertain. These forward-looking statements should not be read as a guarantee of future performance or results, and stockholders should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. There are a number of risks, uncertainties and other important factors, many of which are beyond our control, that could cause our actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements contained in this Quarterly Report. Such risks, uncertainties and other important factors include, among others, the risks, uncertainties and factors set forth under “Part I—Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” and in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K under Part I—Item IA, “Risk Factors” and the risks and uncertainties related to the following:
our ability to attract, retain and grow customers to use our platform and products;
our future financial performance, including our revenue, cost of revenue, gross profit, operating expenses, ability to generate positive cash flow, and ability to achieve and maintain profitability;
the effects of increased competition from our market competitors or new entrants to the market;
the evolution of the social media industry, including adapting to new regulations and use cases;
our ability to access third-party application programming interfaces, or APIs, and data on favorable terms;
our ability to innovate and provide a superior customer experience;
our ability to securely maintain customer and other third-party data;
our ability to comply with modified or new laws and regulations applying to our business, including privacy and data security regulations;
our ability to successfully enter new markets, manage our international expansion and comply with any applicable laws and regulations;
our ability to maintain and enhance our brand;
our estimates of the size of our market opportunities;
the attraction and retention of qualified employees and key personnel;
our ability to effectively manage our growth and future expenses;
2


the sufficiency of our cash to meet our liquidity needs and our ability to raise additional capital on favorable terms or at all;
our ability to maintain, protect and enhance our intellectual property;
worldwide economic conditions, including the macroeconomic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, and their impact on information technology spending; and
the other factors set forth in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K under Part I—Item IA, “Risk Factors,” which risks may be heightened as a result of the ongoing and numerous adverse impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
These factors are not necessarily all of the important factors that could cause our actual financial results, performance, achievements or prospects to differ materially from those expressed in or implied by any of our forward-looking statements. Other unknown or unpredictable factors also could harm our results. All forward-looking statements attributable to us or persons acting on our behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements set forth above. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and we do not undertake or assume any obligation to update forward-looking statements to reflect actual results, changes in assumptions or changes laws or in other factors affecting forward-looking information, except to the extent required by applicable laws. If we update one or more forward-looking statements, no inference should be drawn that we will make additional updates with respect to those or other forward-looking statements.

Sprout Social, Inc.
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)

1.Nature of Operations and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Nature of Operations
Sprout Social, Inc. (“Sprout Social” or the “Company”), a Delaware corporation, began operating on April 21, 2010 to design, develop and operate a web-based comprehensive social media management tool enabling companies to manage and measure their online presence. Customers access their accounts online via a web-based interface or a mobile application. Some customers also purchase the Company’s professional services, which primarily consist of consulting and training services. The Company’s fiscal year end is December 31. The Company’s customers are primarily located throughout the United States, and a portion of customers are located in foreign countries. The Company is headquartered in Chicago, Illinois.
Principles of Consolidation and Basis of Presentation
The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes were prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and the applicable regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) regarding interim financial reporting. The Company has prepared the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements on a basis substantially consistent with the audited consolidated financial statements of the Company as of and for the year ended December 31, 2020, and these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include all normal recurring adjustments necessary for a fair statement of the results of the interim periods presented but are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations to be anticipated for the full year or any future period. The consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2020 included herein was derived from the audited consolidated financial statements as of that date but does not include all disclosures including certain disclosures required by GAAP on an annual basis. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries. All significant intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.
The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020, filed with the SEC on February 24, 2021.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates, judgments and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. The Company bases its estimates on historical experience and on other assumptions that its management believes are reasonable under the circumstances, including but not limited to the potential impacts arising from the COVID-19 pandemic. As the extent and duration of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic remains uncertain, the Company’s estimates and judgments may evolve as conditions change. The Company is not aware of any events or circumstances that would require an update to its estimates and judgments or a revision of the carrying value of its assets or liabilities as of August 4, 2021, the date of issuance of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
The Company’s most significant estimates and judgments are those related to the estimated period of benefit for incremental costs of obtaining a contract with a customer, the incremental borrowing

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)
rate for operating leases, calculation of allowance for credit losses, useful lives of long-lived assets, stock-based compensation, income taxes, commitments and contingencies and litigation, among others.
Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
The Company’s significant accounting policies are discussed in Note 1, “Nature of Operations and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies” in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2020 included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020, filed with the SEC on February 24, 2021. There have been no significant changes to these policies during the six months ended June 30, 2021.
Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements
In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes, which simplifies certain aspects of accounting for income taxes. The guidance is effective for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2020, and early adoption is permitted. The Company adopted the ASU as of January 1, 2021, and the adoption did not have a material impact on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements.
2.Revenue Recognition
Disaggregation of Revenue
The Company provides disaggregation of revenue based on geographic region in Note 7 and based on the subscription versus professional services and other classification on the condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss, as it believes these best depict how the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows are affected by economic factors.
Deferred Revenue
Deferred revenue is recorded upon establishment of unconditional right to payment under non-cancelable contracts and is recognized as the revenue recognition criteria are met. The Company generally invoices customers in advance in monthly, quarterly, semi-annual and annual installments. The deferred revenue balance is influenced by several factors, including the compounding effects of renewals, invoice duration, timing and size. The amount of revenue recognized during the three months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 that was included in deferred revenue at the beginning of each period was $24.0 million and $16.4 million, respectively. The amount of revenue recognized during the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 that was included in deferred revenue at the beginning of each period was $31.9 million and $22.3 million, respectively.
As of June 30, 2021, including amounts already invoiced and amounts contracted but not yet invoiced, $81.2 million of revenue is expected to be recognized from remaining performance obligations, of which 84% is expected to be recognized in the next 12 months, with the remainder thereafter.
3.Operating Leases
The Company has operating lease agreements for offices in Chicago, Illinois, and Seattle, Washington. The Chicago lease expires in January 2028 and the Seattle lease expired in July 2020. In January 2020, the Company entered a new lease agreement for an office in Seattle and this lease commenced in September 2020 and expires in January 2031. The Company’s existing operating leases require escalating monthly rental payments ranging from $72,000 to $280,000. Under the terms of the lease agreements, the Company is also responsible for its proportionate share of taxes and operating costs, which are treated as variable lease costs. The Company’s operating leases typically contain
11

Sprout Social, Inc.
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)
options to extend or terminate the term of the lease. The Company currently does not include any options to extend leases in its lease terms as it is not reasonably certain to exercise them. As such, it has recorded lease obligations only through the initial optional termination dates above.

4.Income Taxes
The provision for income taxes for interim periods is generally determined using an estimate of the Company’s annual effective tax rate, excluding jurisdictions for which no tax benefit can be recognized due to valuation allowances. The Company’s effective tax rate generally differs from the U.S. federal statutory rate primarily due to a valuation allowance related to the Company’s federal and state deferred tax assets.
The Company accounts for Global Intangible Low–Taxed Income (“GILTI”) as a current-period expense when incurred. Therefore, the Company has not recorded deferred taxes for basis differences expected to reverse in the future periods.
There has historically been no federal or state provision for income taxes because the Company has historically incurred operating losses and maintains a full valuation allowance against its net deferred tax assets. For the six months ended June 30, 2021, the Company recognized an immaterial provision related to foreign income taxes.
5.Incentive Stock Plan

Legal Matters
From time to time in the normal course of business, the Company may be subject to various legal matters such as threatened or pending claims or proceedings. There were no material such matters as of and for the period ended June 30, 2021.
Indemnification
In the ordinary course of business, the Company often includes standard indemnification provisions in its arrangements with third parties, including vendors, customers, investors and the Company’s directors and officers. Pursuant to these provisions, the Company may be obligated to indemnify such parties for losses or claims suffered or incurred. It is not possible to determine the maximum potential loss under these indemnification provisions due to the Company’s limited history of prior indemnification claims and the unique facts and circumstances involved in each particular provision. There were no material obligations under such indemnification agreements as of and for the period ended June 30, 2021.
7.Segment and Geographic Data
The Company operates as 1 operating segment. The Company’s chief operating decision maker (“CODM”) is its chief executive officer, who reviews financial information for purposes of making operating decisions, assessing financial performance and allocating resources. The Company’s CODM evaluates financial information on a consolidated basis. As the Company operates as 1 operating segment, all required segment financial information is found in the condensed consolidated financial statements.
Long-lived assets by geographical region are based on the location of the legal entity that owns the assets. As of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, there were no significant long-lived assets held by entities outside of the United States.
Revenue by geographical region is determined by location of the Company’s customers. Revenue from customers outside of the United States was approximately 29% and 28% for the six

8.Net Loss per Share
Basic net loss per share is calculated by dividing the net loss by the weighted average number of outstanding shares of common stock each period. Diluted net loss per share is calculated by giving effect to all potential dilutive common stock equivalents, which includes stock options, restricted stock units, and restricted stock awards. Because the Company incurred net losses each period, the basic and diluted calculations are the same. Basic and diluted net loss per share are the same for each class of common stock, as both Class A and Class B stockholders are entitled to the same liquidation and dividend rights.
The following table presents the calculation for basic and diluted net loss per share (in thousands, except share and per share data):

9. Fair Value Measurements
The Company measures certain financial assets at fair value. Fair value is determined based upon the exit price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants, as determined by either the principal market or the most
15

Sprout Social, Inc.
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)
advantageous market. Inputs used in the valuation techniques to derive fair values are classified based on a three-level hierarchy, as follows:
Level 1: Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2: Observable inputs, other than Level 1 prices, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities, quoted prices in markets that are not active, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.
Level 3: Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity.
The following tables present information about the Company’s financial assets that are measured at fair value and indicate the fair value hierarchy of the valuation inputs used (in thousands):

Total assets$$49,364 $$49,364 
Marketable securities are classified within Level 2 because they are valued using inputs other than quoted prices that are directly or indirectly observable in the market.
The carrying amounts of certain financial instruments, including cash held in banks, cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued liabilities, approximate fair value due to their short-term maturities and are excluded from the fair value tables above.
As of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the Company held investment-grade marketable securities that had maturities within one year and were accounted for as available-for-sale securities. There was not a significant difference between the amortized cost and fair value of these securities. The gross unrealized gains and losses associated with these securities were immaterial for the periods presented.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
You should read the following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations together with our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes included elsewhere in this Quarterly Report. This discussion contains forward-looking statements based upon current plans, expectations and beliefs involving risks and uncertainties, including the potential impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business. Our actual results may differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of various factors, including those set forth under “Risk Factors” in Part I—Item 1A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020, and in other parts of this Quarterly Report.
Overview
Sprout Social is a powerful, centralized platform that provides the critical business layer to unlock the massive commercial value of social media. We have made it increasingly easy to standardize on Sprout Social as the centralized system of record for social and to help customers maximize the value of this mission critical channel. Currently, more than 29,000 customers across more than 100 countries rely on our platform.
Introduced in 2011, our cloud software brings together social messaging, data and workflows in a unified system of record, intelligence and action. Operating across major networks, including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Google, Reddit, Glassdoor, YouTube, and commerce platforms Facebook Shops and Shopify, we provide organizations with a centralized platform to manage their social media efforts across stakeholders and business functions. Virtually every aspect of business has been impacted by social media, from marketing, sales and public relations to customer service, product and strategy, and commerce, creating a need for an entirely new category of software. We offer our customers a centralized, secure and powerful platform to manage this broad, complex channel effectively across their organization.
We generate revenue primarily from subscriptions to our social media management platform under a software-as-a-service model. Our subscriptions can range from monthly to one-year or multi-year arrangements and are generally non-cancellable during the contractual subscription term. Subscription revenue is recognized ratably over the contract terms beginning on the date the product is made available to customers, which typically begins on the commencement date of each contract. We also generate revenue from professional services related to our platform provided to certain customers, which is recognized at the time these services are provided to the customer. This revenue has historically represented less than 1% of our revenue and is expected to be immaterial for the foreseeable future.
Our tiered subscription-based model allows our customers to choose among three core plans to meet their needs. Each plan is licensed on a per user per month basis at prices dependent on the level of features offered. Additional product modules, which offer increased functionality depending on a customer’s needs, can be purchased by the customer on a per user per month basis.
We generated revenue of $44.7 million and $31.4 million during the three months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively, representing growth of 42%. We generated revenue of $85.5 million and $61.9 million during the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively, representing growth of 38%. In the six months ended June 30, 2021, software subscriptions contributed 99% of our revenue.
We generated net losses of $5.4 million and $8.3 million during the three months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively, which included stock-based compensation expense of $5.4 million and $2.5 million, respectively. We generated net losses of $11.8 million and $18.8 million during the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively, which included stock-based compensation expense of $9.4 million and $6.0 million, respectively. We expect to continue investing in the growth of our business and, as a result, generate net losses for the foreseeable future.

COVID-19
In December 2019, a novel coronavirus disease (“COVID-19”) was identified. On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization characterized COVID-19 as a pandemic. The extent of the impact of COVID-19 on our operational and financial performance and financial position will depend on certain developments, including the duration and spread of the outbreak and the governmental responses to address the pandemic and any re-emergence of COVID-19, impact on our customers and sales cycles and impact on our employees, all of which are uncertain and cannot be predicted.
Given the importance of our technology platform and heightened market awareness of social media as a strategic communications channel, our operational and financial performance were not materially impacted by COVID-19 during the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020. Our IPO in December 2019 and over-allotment in January 2020 resulted in total net proceeds of $144.3 million, which strengthened our liquidity position prior to the pandemic. The $42.1 million in net proceeds from our equity follow-on offering in August 2020 further strengthened our liquidity position.
We believe that over the long-term, we will continue to see strong demand for our technology platform; however, the duration and spread of the pandemic could impact our customers’ marketing or social media budgets or ability to pay for existing subscriptions, particularly in the industries most impacted by COVID-19. We will continue to monitor the potential impact of COVID-19; however, at this time, the extent to which the pandemic may impact our financial condition or results of operations is uncertain.
Key Factors Affecting Our Performance
Acquiring new customers
We are focused on continuing to organically grow our customer base by increasing demand for our platform and penetrating our addressable market. We have invested, and expect to continue to invest, heavily in expanding our sales force and marketing efforts to acquire new customers. Currently, we have more than 29,000 customers.
Expanding within our current customer base
We believe that there is a substantial and largely untapped opportunity for organic growth within our existing customer base. Customers often begin by purchasing a small number of user subscriptions and then expand over time, increasing the number of users or social profiles, as well as purchasing additional product modules. Customers may then expand use-cases between various departments to drive collaboration across their organizations. Our sales and customer success efforts include encouraging organizations to expand use-cases to more fully realize the value from the broader adoption of our platform throughout an organization. We will continue to invest in enhancing awareness of our brand, creating additional uses for our products and developing more products, features and functionality of existing products, which we believe are vital to achieving increased adoption of our platform. We have a history of attracting new customers and we have increased our focus on expanding their use of our platform over time.
Sustaining product and technology innovation
Our success is dependent on our ability to sustain product and technology innovation and maintain the competitive advantage of our proprietary technology. We continue to invest resources to enhance the capabilities of our platform by introducing new products, features and functionality of existing products.
19


International expansion
We see international expansion as a meaningful opportunity to grow our platform. Revenue generated from non-U.S. customers during the six months ended June 30, 2021 was approximately 29% of our total revenue. We have built local teams in Ireland, Canada, the United Kingdom, Singapore, India, Australia and the Philippines to support our growth internationally. We believe global demand for our platform and offerings will continue to increase as awareness of our platform in international markets grows. We plan to continue adding to our local sales, customer support and customer success teams in select international markets over time.
Key Business Metrics
We review the following key business metrics to evaluate our business, measure our performance, identify trends, formulate financial projections and make strategic decisions.
Number of customers
We define a customer as a unique account, multiple accounts containing a common non-personal email domain, or multiple accounts governed by a single agreement. Number of customers excludes customers exclusively using legacy products obtained through the acquisition of Simply Measured. We believe that the number of customers using our platform is an indicator not only of our market penetration, but also of our potential for future growth as our customers often expand their adoption of our platform over time based on an increased awareness of the value of our platform and products.
As of June 30,
20212020
Number of customers29,612 24,356 
ARR
We define ARR as the annualized revenue run-rate of subscription agreements from all customers as of the last date of the specified period. ARR includes the impact of recurring revenue generated from legacy Simply Measured products, which a small number of legacy Simply Measured customers have continued to access. These customers may continue to do so for a limited period in the future as we continue to transition those customers to other Sprout products. We believe ARR is an indicator of the scale of our entire platform while mitigating fluctuations due to seasonality and contract term.
As of June 30,
20212020
(in thousands)
ARR$189,109 $130,785 
Number of customers contributing more than $10,000 in ARR
We view the number of customers that contribute more than $10,000 in ARR as a measure of our ability to scale with our customers and attract larger organizations. We believe this represents potential for future growth, including expanding within our current customer base. Over time, larger customers have constituted a greater share of our revenue.

We define customers contributing more than $10,000 in ARR as those on a paid subscription plan that had more than $10,000 in ARR as of a period end.

Components of our Results of Operations
Revenue
Subscription
We generate revenue primarily from subscriptions to our social media management platform under a software-as-a-service model. Our subscriptions can range from monthly to one-year or multi-year arrangements and are generally non-cancellable during the contractual subscription term. Subscription revenue is recognized ratably over the contract terms beginning on the date our product is made available to customers, which typically begins on the commencement date of each contract. Our customers do not have the right to take possession of the online software solution. We also generate a small portion of our subscription revenue from third-party resellers.
Professional Services
We sell professional services consisting of, but not limited to, implementation fees, specialized training, one-time reporting services and recurring periodic reporting services. Professional services revenue is recognized at the time these services are provided to the customer. This revenue has historically represented less than 1% of our revenue and is expected to be immaterial for the foreseeable future.
Cost of Revenue
Subscription
Cost of revenue primarily consists of expenses related to hosting our platform and providing support to our customers. These expenses are comprised of fees paid to data providers, hosted data center costs and personnel costs directly associated with cloud infrastructure, customer success and customer support, including salaries, benefits, bonuses and allocated overhead. These costs also include depreciation expense and amortization expense related to acquired developed technologies. Overhead associated with facilities and information technology is allocated to cost of revenue and operating expenses based on headcount. Although we expect our cost of revenue to increase in absolute dollars as our business and revenue grows, we expect our cost of revenue to decrease as a percentage of our revenue over time.
Professional Services and Other
Cost of professional services primarily consists of expenses related to our professional services organization and are comprised of personnel costs, including salaries, benefits, bonuses and allocated overhead.
Gross Profit and Gross Margin
Gross margin is calculated as gross profit as a percentage of total revenue. Our gross margin may fluctuate from period to period based on revenue earned, the timing and amount of investments made to expand our hosting capacity, our customer support and professional services teams and in hiring
21


additional personnel, and the impact of acquisitions. We expect our gross profit and gross margin to increase as our business grows over time.
Operating Expenses
Research and Development
Research and development expenses primarily consist of personnel costs, including salaries, benefits and allocated overhead. Research and development expenses also include depreciation expense and other expenses associated with product development. We plan to increase the dollar amount of our investment in research and development for the foreseeable future as we focus on developing new features and enhancements to our plan offerings. However, we expect our research and development expenses to decrease as a percentage of our revenue over time.
Sales and Marketing
Sales and marketing expenses primarily consist of personnel costs directly associated with our sales and marketing department, online advertising expenses, as well as allocated overhead, including depreciation expense and amortization related to acquired developed technologies. Sales force commissions and bonuses are considered incremental costs of obtaining a contract with a customer. Sales commissions are earned and recorded at contract commencement for both new customer contracts and expansion of contracts with existing customers. Sales commissions are deferred and amortized on a straight-line basis over a period of benefit of three years. We plan to increase the dollar amount of our investment in sales and marketing for the foreseeable future, primarily for increased headcount for our sales department.
General and Administrative
General and administrative expenses primarily consist of personnel expenses associated with our finance, legal, human resources and other administrative employees. Our general and administrative expenses also include professional fees for external legal, accounting and other consulting services, depreciation and amortization expense, as well as allocated overhead. We expect to increase the size of our general and administrative functions to support the growth of our business. We also recognized certain non-recurring professional fees and other expenses as part of our transition to becoming a public company and expect to continue to incur additional expenses as a result of operating as a public company, including costs to comply with rules and regulations applicable to companies listed on a U.S. securities exchange, costs related to compliance and reporting obligations pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC, investor relations and professional services. We expect the dollar amount of our general and administrative expenses to increase for the foreseeable future. However, we expect our general and administrative expenses to decrease as a percentage of revenue over time.
Interest Income (Expense), Net
Interest income (expense), net consists primarily of interest expense on outstanding line of credit balances and is offset by interest income earned on our cash and investment balances.
Other (Expense) Income, Net
Other (expense) income, net consists of sublease rental income from our Seattle, Washington office and foreign currency transaction gains and losses.
Income Tax Provision
The income tax provision consists of current and deferred taxes for our foreign jurisdictions. We have historically reported a taxable loss in our most significant jurisdiction, the U.S., and have a full
22


valuation allowance against our deferred tax assets. We expect this trend to continue for the foreseeable future.

The increase in subscription revenue was primarily driven by revenue from new customers and expansion within existing customers. The total number of customers grew from 24,356 as of June 30, 2020 to 29,612 as of June 30, 2021. The increase in new customers was primarily driven by our growing sales force capacity to meet market demand. Expansion within existing customers was driven by our ability to increase the number of users, social profiles and products purchased by customers. This is in part attributable to the expansion of use-cases across various functions within our existing customers’ organizations.

The increase in personnel costs was primarily the result of a 22% increase in headcount as we continue to grow our business and operate as a publicly traded company. The increase in stock-based compensation was due to the increased headcount. Credit losses on accounts receivable decreased due to improved collections in 2021 and a reserve taken in the prior year related to the potential impact of COVID-19 on our customers’ ability to pay.

The increase in subscription revenue was primarily driven by revenue from new customers and expansion within existing customers. The total number of customers grew from 24,356 as of June 30, 2020 to 29,612 as of June 30, 2021. The increase in new customers was primarily driven by our growing sales force capacity to meet market demand. Expansion within existing customers was driven by our ability to increase the number of users, social profiles and products purchased by customers. This is in part attributable to the expansion of use-cases across various functions within our existing customers’ organizations.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to our results determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, we believe the following non-GAAP measures are useful in evaluating our operating performance. We use the below non-GAAP financial information, collectively, to evaluate our ongoing operations and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. We believe that non-GAAP financial information, when taken collectively, may be helpful to investors because it provides consistency and comparability with past financial performance by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of our business, operating results or future outlook.
However, non-GAAP financial information is presented for supplemental informational purposes only, has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with GAAP. In addition, other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate non-GAAP financial measures differently or may use other measures to evaluate their performance, all of which could reduce the usefulness of our non-GAAP
32


financial measures as tools for comparison. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.

Free Cash Flow
Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure that we define as net cash used in operating activities less purchases of property and equipment. We believe that free cash flow is a useful indicator of liquidity that provides information to management and investors about the amount of cash used in our core operations that, after the purchases of property and equipment, is not available to be used for strategic initiatives. For example, if free cash flow is negative, we may need to access cash reserves or other sources of capital to invest in strategic initiatives. One limitation of free cash flow is that it does not reflect our future contractual obligations. Additionally, free cash flow does not represent the total increase or decrease in our cash balance for a given period.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
Our liquidity and capital resources were not materially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and the governmental responses to address the pandemic and the related economic impact during the six months ended June 30, 2021. For further discussion regarding the future potential impacts of COVID-19 and the related economic impacts on our liquidity and capital resources, see “Risk Factors” in Part I—Item 1A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K.
As of June 30, 2021, our principal sources of liquidity were cash and cash equivalents of $108.3 million, marketable securities of $63.2 million and net accounts receivable of $16.1 million. Historically, we have generated losses from operations and negative cash flows from operations, as evidenced by our accumulated deficit and statement of cash flows. However, for the six months ended June 30, 2021, we generated positive cash flows from operations. We expect to continue to incur operating losses for the foreseeable future due to the investments in our business we intend to make as described above. We may experience greater than anticipated operating losses in the short- and long-term if the COVID-19 pandemic and the governmental responses to address the pandemic and any re-emergence of COVID-19 persist for a prolonged period of time. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our customers and our operations going forward remains uncertain, and we continue to proactively monitor our liquidity position.
Prior to our IPO in December 2019, we financed our operations primarily through private issuance of equity securities and line of credit borrowings. In our IPO, we received net proceeds of $134.3 million after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions of $10.5 million and offering expenses of $5.2 million. We subsequently received an additional $10.0 million of net proceeds after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions in January 2020 as a result of the over-allotment option exercise by the underwriters of our IPO. In August 2020, we received $42.1 million of net proceeds from our equity follow-on offering after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions. Our principal uses of cash in recent periods have been to fund operations and invest in capital expenditures.
We believe our existing cash and cash equivalents will be sufficient to meet our operating and capital needs for at least the next 12 months. Our future capital requirements will depend on many factors, including our subscription growth rate, subscription renewal activity, billing frequency, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our customers and our operations, the timing and extent of spending to support our research and development efforts, the expansion of sales and marketing activities, the introduction of new and enhanced product offerings, and the continuing market acceptance of our product. In the future, we may enter into arrangements to acquire or invest in complementary businesses,
35


products and technologies, including intellectual property rights. We may be required to seek additional equity or debt financing. In the event that additional financing is required from outside sources, we may not be able to raise it on terms acceptable to us, or at all. If we are unable to raise additional capital or generate cash flows necessary to expand our operations, our business, results of operations and financial condition could be adversely affected.
SVB Credit Facility
In December 2017, we entered into a Loan and Security Agreement with Silicon Valley Bank, or SVB, which comprised a $15.0 million line of credit, or the Revolver, and a $5.0 million incremental revolving line commitment, or the Incremental Revolver, and, together with the Revolver, the SVB Credit Facility.
In November 2019, we amended the SVB Credit Facility to increase the Revolver (including the exercise of the Incremental Revolver, as amended) to $40.0 million and amended, among other terms, levels for the minimum adjusted EBITDA and minimum liquidity covenants, the advance rate and the interest rate. The November 2019 amendment includes a “streamline period”, or Streamline Period, concept, which occurs when we maintain, for every consecutive day in the immediately preceding fiscal quarter, the sum of (i) unrestricted cash at SVB plus (ii) unused availability under the Revolver in an amount equal to or greater than $75.0 million (the Streamline Balance). Any Streamline Period terminates on the earlier of the occurrence of an event of default and failure to maintain the Streamline Balance. The minimum adjusted EBITDA and minimum liquidity covenants do not apply during any Streamline Period. As of June 30, 2021, we did not have any outstanding principal balance under the SVB Credit Facility.
In connection with the November 2019 amendment, the Revolver now has a floating interest rate equal to the greater of (i) 4.75% and (ii) (x) at any time when the Streamline Period is not in effect, one and one-half of one percent (1.50%) above the prime rate and (y) at any time when the Streamline Period is in effect, the prime rate, which interest is payable monthly. The SVB Credit Facility matures on January 31, 2022.
The SVB Credit Facility contains customary negative covenants that limit our ability to, or require mandatory prepayment in the event that we, among other things, incur additional indebtedness or liens, merge with other companies or consummate certain changes of control, acquire other companies, engage in new lines of business, add new offices or business locations, make certain investments, pay dividends, transfer or dispose of certain assets, liquidate or dissolve and enter into various specified transactions. The SVB Credit Facility also contains affirmative covenants, including certain financial covenants such as minimum adjusted EBITDA and minimum liquidity covenants and financial reporting requirements. With limited exceptions, our obligations under the SVB Credit Facility are secured by all of our property other than intellectual property (which is subject to a negative pledge). As of June 30, 2021, we were in compliance with the covenants in the SVB Credit Facility.

Operating Activities
Our largest source of operating cash is cash collections from our customers for subscription services. Our primary uses of cash from operating activities are for personnel costs across the sales and marketing and research and development departments and hosting costs. Historically, we have generated negative cash flows from operating activities. However, for the six months ended June 30, 2021, we generated positive cash flows from operating activities.
Net cash provided by operating activities during the six months ended June 30, 2021 was $8.0 million, which resulted from a net loss of $11.8 million adjusted for non-cash charges of $17.6 million and net cash inflow of $2.2 million from changes in operating assets and liabilities. Non-cash charges primarily consisted of $9.4 million of stock-based compensation expense, $2.0 million of depreciation and intangible asset amortization expense, $5.4 million for amortization of deferred contract acquisition costs, which were primarily commissions, and $0.3 million of amortization of right-of-use, or ROU, operating lease assets. The net cash inflow from changes in operating assets and liabilities was primarily the result of a $10.8 million increase in deferred revenue, a $1.0 million decrease in gross accounts receivable, and a $2.9 million decrease in prepaid expenses. These inflows were primarily offset by a $9.5 million increase in deferred commissions due to the addition of new customers and expansion of the business, a $2.0 million decrease in accounts payable and other accrued liabilities, and a $0.9 million decrease in operating lease liabilities.
Net cash used in operating activities during the six months ended June 30, 2020 was $8.5 million, which resulted from a net loss of $18.8 million adjusted for non-cash charges of $13.8 million and net cash outflow of $3.5 million from changes in operating assets and liabilities. Non-cash charges primarily consisted of $6.0 million of stock-based compensation expense, $2.1 million of depreciation and intangible asset amortization expense, $3.4 million for amortization of deferred contract acquisition costs, which were primarily commissions, $1.3 million for bad debt expense and $0.7 million of amortization of right-of-use, or ROU, operating lease assets. The net cash outflow from changes in operating assets and liabilities was primarily the result of a $5.4 million increase in deferred commissions due to the addition of new customers and expansion of the business, a $4.3 million increase in gross accounts receivable, and a $1.2 million decrease in operating lease liabilities. These outflows were primarily offset by a $5.7 million increase in deferred revenue and a $0.9 million increase in accounts payable and other accrued liabilities.
Investing Activities
Net cash used in investing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2021 was $14.6 million, which was primarily due to $63.2 million in purchases of marketable securities, partially offset by $49.0 million in proceeds from maturities of marketable securities.
Net cash used in investing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2020 was $50.5 million, which was primarily due to the purchase of $49.7 million of marketable securities in June 2020.
Financing Activities
Net cash provided by financing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2021 was $0.4 million, which was primarily the result of $1.7 million from the disgorgement of stockholder short-swing profits under Section 16(b) of the Exchange Act, offset by $1.2 million in payments related to the employee withholding taxes as a result of the net settlement of stock-based awards.
Net cash provided by financing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2020 was $3.6 million, which was primarily the result of $10.0 million of net proceeds from our sale of over-allotment shares to the underwriters of our IPO, offset by $6.3 million in payments related to the employee withholding taxes as a result of the net settlement of stock-based awards.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
As of June 30, 2021, we did not have any relationships with any entities or financial partnerships, such as structured finance or special purpose entities, that would have been established for the purpose of facilitating off-balance sheet arrangements or other purposes.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
Refer to section titled “Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements” in Note 1 of the notes to our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements included in this Quarterly Report for more information.
Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
Our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The preparation of these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates, judgments and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting periods. On an ongoing basis, we evaluate our estimates and assumptions. Our actual results may differ from these estimates.
Our significant accounting policies are discussed in Note 1, “Nature of Operations and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies” in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2020 included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020, filed with the SEC on February 24, 2021. There have been no significant changes to these policies during the six months ended June 30, 2021.
JOBS Act Accounting Election
We are an “emerging growth company” as defined in the JOBS Act. Under the JOBS Act, emerging growth companies can delay adopting new or revised accounting standards until such time as those standards apply to private companies. We have elected to use this exemption from new or revised accounting standards and, therefore, we will not be subject to the same new or revised accounting standards as other public companies that have not made this election. While we have elected to use this extended transition period, to date we have not delayed the adoption of any applicable accounting standards.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures of Market Risk
Interest Rate Risk
We had cash and cash equivalents totaling $108.3 million as of June 30, 2021, the majority of which was invested in money market accounts and money market funds. We also had marketable securities of $63.2 million which were invested in investment-grade corporate bonds and commercial paper. Such interest-earning instruments carry a degree of interest rate risk with respect to the interest income generated. Additionally, certain of these cash investments are maintained at balances beyond Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, or FDIC, coverage limits or are not insured by the FDIC. Accordingly, there may be a risk that we will not recover the full principal of our cash investments and marketable securities. To date, fluctuations in interest income have not been significant. Because these accounts are highly liquid, we do not have material exposure to market risk. Our cash is held for working capital purposes. We do not enter into investments for trading or speculative purposes.
We did not have any outstanding debt under our $40.0 million revolving credit line as of June 30, 2021. The line of credit carries a variable interest rate equal to the greater of (i) 4.75% and (ii) (x) at any time when the Streamline Period is not in effect, one and one-half of one percent (1.50%) above the prime rate and (y) at any time when the Streamline Period is in effect, the prime rate and is available through January 31, 2022. See “Item 2 - Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations—Liquidity and Capital Resources—SVB Credit Facility.”
We have not been exposed to, nor do we anticipate being exposed to, material risks due to changes in interest rates. A hypothetical 10% change in interest rates during any of the periods presented would not have had a material impact on our financial statements.
Foreign Currency Exchange Risk
We are not currently subject to significant foreign currency exchange risk as our U.S. and international sales are predominantly denominated in U.S. dollars. However, we have some foreign currency risk related to a small amount of sales denominated in Canadian dollars. Sales denominated in Canadian dollars reflect the prevailing U.S. dollar exchange rate on the date of invoice for such sales. Decreases in the relative value of the U.S. dollar to the Canadian dollar may negatively affect revenue and other operating results as expressed in U.S. dollars. We do not believe that an immediate ten percent increase or decrease in the relative value of the U.S. dollar to the Canadian dollars would have a material effect on operating results.
We have not engaged in the hedging of foreign currency transactions to date. However, as our international operations expand, our foreign currency exchange risk may increase. If our foreign currency exchange risk increases in the future, we may evaluate the costs and benefits of initiating a foreign currency hedge program in connection with non-U.S. dollar denominated transactions.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures
Evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures
Our management, with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer, or CEO, and Chief Financial Officer, or CFO, has evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Exchange Act, as of June 30, 2021. Based on such evaluation, our CEO and CFO have concluded that as of June 30, 2021, our disclosure controls and procedures are effective to provide reasonable assurance that information we are required to disclose in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the SEC, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our CEO and CFO, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
Changes in internal controls
There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
Inherent Limitations of Internal Controls
In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures and internal control over financial reporting, management does not expect that our internal control over financial reporting will prevent or detect all errors and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the control system’s objectives will be met. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that misstatements due to error or fraud will not occur or that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within our company will have been detected.
