RUBI reported non-GAAP net revenue of $66.9M (-20.1% Y/Y), 4.5% above FactSet consensus of $64.0M, reflecting continued challenges in desktop display/header bidding, and in the context of a low hurdle to clear. EBITDA of $21.6M (32.2% margin) and adjusted EPS of $0.37 were 42%/148% above respective consensus estimates of $15.2M/$0.15. Advertising spend declines due to further deterioration in desktop and mobile web. Advertising spend decreased 18% Y/Y to $277.1M (-11% ex. static and intent marketing solutions), primarily due to a 23% decline in desktop spend (64% of total spend) and a 5% reduction in mobile spend (primarily driven by mobile web). However, this was slightly better than our $263.5M estimate. Management will no longer provide ad spend details for Orders vs. RTB. Disappointing 1Q17 guidance reflects a continuation of these trends. Due to continued deterioration in desktop display and legacy mobile web, management’s 1Q17 guidance came in well-below the Street. For 1Q17, management guided to net revenue of $41-44M (vs. cons. $54.0M), adj EBITDA of ($6-4M) (vs. cons. $9.6M), and adj EPS of ($0.26-0.22) (vs. cons. $0.09).””
