“We made history in the third quarter with the launch of Exodus shares on the tZERO marketplace,” said JP Richardson, CEO and co-founder of Exodus. “We are the first to digitally represent our common stock on the blockchain and make it available for public investment. This important step aligned with the ethos of Exodus; we envision a future where you have control over your assets and stocks, and in the third quarter, we brought this vision to life.”

“The third quarter and year-to-date financial results reflect the power of beautifully designed software that allows users to experience crypto all-in-one place. YTD total revenues have more than tripled our 2020 full year results and we continue to add users as we improve and add functionality to our platform. We are building Exodus as the go-to platform for experiencing all that decentralized finance has to offer, supported by world-class customer service.”

Third Quarter Operational and Other Financial Highlights

  • Exodus monthly active users1902,986, up 240% from 265,377 in Q3 2020.
  • Adjusted EBITDA2 $6.8 million, up 106% from $3.3 million in Q3 2020.
  • Digital assets and cash – $128.7 million, including $57.5 million in bitcoin and $50.4 million in U.S. Dollar Coin as of September 30, 2021.
  • Full-time equivalent employees – 200, an increase from 176 at Q2 end.
  • Customer response time – median response time of less than 10 minutes.

“Our financial and operating results continue to eclipse prior year results,” said James Gernetzke, CFO of Exodus. “Though we did see a softening in total exchange volume with the downturn in crypto markets early in the third quarter, we witnessed a rebound in exchange activity in September that has continued through October. Exodus headed into the fourth quarter with strong momentum, and we are on-track to deliver over $90 million in total revenue this year.”

“As recently announced, we are initiating a $2 million share repurchase program. We expect to repurchase shares in the open market at a price of up to $55 per share. We continue to invest aggressively in our growth projects, and given our well-funded balance sheet, now is the right time to return value to shareholders in the form of a buyback.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measure

Earnings before interest, taxes and depreciation and amortization and Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes and depreciation and amortization

In addition to our results determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), we believe Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, is useful in evaluating our operating performance. We use Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate our ongoing operations and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA may be helpful to investors because it provides consistency and comparability with past financial performance. However, Adjusted EBITDA 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 similarly titled non-GAAP measures, including Adjusted EBITDA, differently or may use other measures to evaluate their performance, all of which could reduce the usefulness of our non-GAAP financial measures as tools for comparison.

A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income can be found below in the table captioned “Reconciliation of Net Income to Adjusted EBITDA.” Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business. We calculate Adjusted EBITDA as net income, adjusted to exclude provision for or benefit from income taxes, depreciation and amortization, interest expense, crypto asset borrowing costs, stock-based compensation expense, impairment, unrealized gain or loss on foreign exchange, fair value gain or loss on derivatives, non-recurring legal reserves and related costs, and other loss, net.

The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results in the same manner as our management and Board of Directors. Management’s determination of the components of Adjusted EBITDA are evaluated periodically and based, in part, on a review of non-GAAP financial measures used by industry analysts. Net income (loss) attributable to Exodus stockholders is reconciled to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as follows:

  • difficulties predicting user behavior and changes in user spending habits as a result of, among other things, prevailing economic conditions, levels of employment, salaries and wages, inflation and consumer confidence, particularly in light of the pandemic and as pandemic-related restrictions are eased regionally and globally;
  • unexpected or rapid changes in the growth or decline of our domestic and/or international markets;
  • increasing competition from existing and new competitors;
  • rapidly evolving and groundbreaking advances that fundamentally alter the digital asset and cryptocurrency industry;

  • the risks relating to our ability to sustain or increase profitability or revenue growth in future periods (or minimize declines) while controlling expenses;
  • the compromise of user data for any reason;
  • foreign operational, political and other risks relating to our operations; and
  • the loss of key personnel, labor shortages or work stoppages.

More information on the factors, risks and uncertainties that could cause or contribute to such differences is included in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including in the “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion & Analysis” sections of our offering statement on Form 1-A.
