“I’m pleased to report standout third quarter results with both revenue and loss per share surpassing the high end of guidance.

We aim to compound this trend with our recently announced AI-powered property reports and insights currently in Beta,” Pittman added.

“Revenue growth, combined with an 800 basis point increase in gross margin and a 15% improvement in operating expense, drove our Non-GAAP loss per share to $0.04, above the high end of our guidance range and a 56% year-over-year improvement,” said JD Fay, Chief Financial Officer of Matterport. “Along with a 62% reduction in cash used in operating activities, these results highlight that we are improving our operating efficiency while continuing to fund our innovation engine to drive top line growth. This strong quarter on the top and bottom lines confirms that we are firmly on our accelerated path to profitability, which we remain confident in achieving next year.”

Recent Business Highlights

  • Introduced the next generation of intelligent digital twins with powerful new capabilities fueled by the company’s rapid advancements in AI and data science. Now in beta, customers can access automated measurements, layouts, editing, and reporting capabilities generated from their digital twins. Automation marks a significant breakthrough, saving customers time and resources by eliminating the need for manual measurements and reporting by automatically processing the millions of 3D data points captured with a Matterport digital twin.
  • Announced its latest collaboration with Procore Technologies Inc., a leading global provider of construction management software, expanding Matterport’s platform ecosystem support for design and construction management software services. Building on the companies’ original integration, Procore users can now use features such as Requests For Information, Observations, and Coordination Issues directly within Matterport’s photorealistic 3D digital twins, creating a visual system-of-record for site conditions that anyone on a project can track.
  • Announced it has become an Autodesk Premium Partner, deepening the relationship on digital twin collaboration for design & construction. Membership as an Autodesk Construction Cloud® Premium Partner helps bring Matterport’s 4K digital twins to even more construction professionals. Autodesk Construction Cloud is a portfolio of software services that combines advanced technology, a builders network and predictive insights for construction teams.
  • Highlighted case studies for Danone and Siemens. Using Matterport Pro3 cameras, Danone captured its facilities in rich 3D imagery in immersive digital twins. Once given access, authorized users can now virtually visit and walk around the production site using a standard computer or mobile device to view the digital twins. The result is reduced travel with a 50% decrease in in-person site visits by company personnel, saving hundreds of employee hours annually. Siemens has captured thousands of square meters of its manufacturing plants overseas. The high-resolution digital twins enable Siemens personnel to meet virtually with new and existing customers to discuss the company’s manufacturing capabilities in exquisite detail.
  • Announced its partnership with Equinox Technologies, a distributor of global technologies and Managed Security Services to offer Matterport’s digital twin platform to Government, Enterprise and Small-to-Medium sized customers out of its offices in the United Arab Emirates, India, Oman, Saudi Arabia, and South Africa. The Company also announced that it is significantly expanding its presence in Latin America, partnering with CompuSoluciones, one of the largest value-added distributors of technology in the region, as a key distributor of Matterport’s digital twin technologies in Mexico and Colombia.
  • Announced it has captured the restored Aso Shrine Gate and surrounding shrine area as part of an initiative to document and reproduce Japanese cultural assets and historical buildings as 3D digital twins.

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2023 Outlook

The Company is providing the following financial guidance for the fourth quarter and full year 2023. The Company is raising its full year guidance for revenue and Non-GAAP loss per share driven by continued strong demand for digital twins, combined with robust gross margins and continued operating discipline. This guidance will be discussed in greater detail on today’s conference call.

 Q4 2023

Total revenue (in millions)$39 — $41$157 — $159
Subscription revenue (in millions)$23.0 — $23.3$86.5 — $86.8

Matterport is not able to provide a reconciliation of non-GAAP loss per share to GAAP loss per share because Matterport does not provide specific guidance for the various exclusions adjusted from net loss. These items have not yet occurred, are out of Matterport’s control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted. As a result, reconciliation of the non-GAAP guidance measures to GAAP is not available without unreasonable effort, and Matterport is unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

Matterport has provided in this press release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP). We believe that the presentation of non-GAAP financial information provides important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to Matterport’s financial condition and results of operations.

The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP financial measures and should be read only in conjunction with the Company’s consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. For further information regarding these non-GAAP measures, including the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, please refer to the financial tables below.

Non-GAAP Net Loss and Non-GAAP Net Loss Per Share, Basic and Diluted. Matterport defines non-GAAP net loss as net loss, adjusted to exclude stock-based compensation-related charges (including share-based payroll tax expense), fair value change of warrants liability, fair value change of earn-out liabilities, payroll tax related to contingent earn-out share issuance, acquisition-related costs, and amortization of acquired intangible assets, in order to provide investors and management with greater visibility to the underlying performance of Matterport’s recurring core business operations. We define non-GAAP net loss per share, as non-GAAP net loss divided by the weighted-average shares outstanding, which includes the dilutive effect of potentially diluted common stock equivalents outstanding during the period if any.

Conference Call Information

Matterport will host a conference call for analysts and investors to discuss its financial results for the third quarter 2023 today, November 6, 2023, at 1:30 p.m. Pacific time (4:30 p.m. Eastern time).
