Riskified Reports Strong 20% Year-over-Year Growth, Fueled by Key New Merchant Wins

Further Raises Guidance and Financial Outlook for FY 2022

Riskified Ltd., a risk management platform enabling frictionless eCommerce, today announced financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022. The Company will host an investor call to discuss these results today at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time.

“Building off of momentum from a strong first half of the year, we saw an acceleration in our top line growth to achieve a very strong third quarter. Our year-over-year growth more than doubled our second quarter 2022 year-over-year growth and our tickets and travel vertical remained an active and growing part of the business,” said Eido Gal, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Riskified.

“As we head towards the end of the year, I am excited by our enhanced Go-to-Market positioning and the increased traction we are seeing with new and existing merchants. We recently went live with our largest new merchant of the year, and are building a solid pipeline of new merchants and future upsell opportunities within our existing merchant base.”

“Looking ahead to the fourth quarter, we expect our broad-based and diversified business to continue driving strong revenue generation. Combined with our thoughtful efforts to manage our operating expenses, we expect to continue on our accelerated path to profitability.”

Q3 2022 Business Highlights

  • Further Strengthened Leadership Position in Tickets & Travel Vertical: Riskified recently onboarded one of the world’s largest secondary ticket marketplaces for live sports, concerts, theater, and events. We are reviewing nearly all of this merchant’s eCommerce volume, which we believe further strengthens our positioning as a leader in the tickets and travel vertical.
  • Execution of Upsell Strategy Results in Strong Quarter of Activity: During the third quarter of 2022, Riskified achieved strong year-over-year growth in upsell activity. We saw robust activity across varying merchant sizes, with particular momentum from our merchants with more than $3 billion in online sales volumes per year. Our upsell activity was distributed across merchants in our more mature cohorts as well as newer logos. This positive momentum, with the addition of new logos, more than offset declines in the organic growth of some of our existing merchants, which we primarily attribute to the tougher macro-economic environment.
  • Meaningful Margin and Free Cash Flow Improvements Accelerate Path to Profitability: We saw a 33% year-over-year and sequential improvement in our Adjusted EBITDA during the third quarter. This led to a meaningful decline of our free cash outflows during the quarter as we continue to build towards sustainable profitability.
  • Further Increases to 2022 Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA Guidance: We are increasing our full year revenue outlook as a result of our record first nine month performance. In addition, through a further reduction in our budgeted expense base, we are improving our Adjusted EBITDA outlook for the full year of 2022 by approximately 18% from our previous upward guidance revision in August of 2022.
  • Hosted Riskified’s Annual Merchant Summit: Attended by over 100 merchant contacts and prospects across all major verticals, this multiday event focused on new business pipeline generation, information sharing with industry experts and potential partnership opportunities.
