EXPENSIFY ANNOUNCES Q2 2023 RESULTS
Expensify Card interchange increased by 56% as compared to the previous period last year. Company repurchased $3.9 million in common shares (including $0.9 million of net share settlement on equity awards), decreased outstanding debt by $8.2 million.
PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--August 8, 2023-- Expensify, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXFY), a payments superapp that helps individuals and businesses around the world simplify the way they manage money across expenses, corporate cards and bills, today released a letter to shareholders from Founder and CEO David Barrett alongside results for its quarter ended June 30, 2023.
A Message From Our Founder
This is an exciting time for the expense management industry. As long predicted, our major competitors have abandoned their interchange-only business models and announced a transition to Expensify-style subscription pricing plans. This welcome change signals the beginning of the end of this strange, distorted period where free options were being dumped into the industry at a perpetual loss. We knew it couldn't last forever, and we're thankful that reality is starting to sink in, because Expensify's ultimate strength is its amazing unit economics.
With twelve consecutive quarters of profitability (on an Adjusted EBITDA basis), we have spent our entire history gearing up for a long and grueling battle in the trenches, and we relish the fight. While weathering the combined fire of our competition in the current, tiny, heavily contested corner of the market, we believe we are the only ones genuinely preparing for the next order of magnitude, targeting the 100MM+ businesses in the world that have never heard of any of us. And those preparations are going great:
•We deployed our cross-platform, open-source, universal chat foundation at multiple real world conferences, acquiring 3x the leads that our booth traditionally has -- while enabling a presence at 10x the conferences at 1/10th the cost of attending physically. After all, it doesn't matter what the conference is about: if it's for business, every single attendee is likely to file an expense report after.
•We began our first real world expense reimbursements on the New Expensify platform, proving out the "universal" nature of our chat-first payment design -- and are aggressively porting over more advanced cases to begin testing with live customers.
•We activated ChatGPT for high quality, high scale, real time content moderation, and are beginning to incorporate it throughout our chat-first sales, support, and product design.
On top of these major investments in revolutionary product design, we plan to continue making a full court press with evolutionary enhancements to our SDRs, SEO, SEM, dedicated sales, account management, and other more traditional growth tools, all of which are showing strong improvement. But the real opportunity is still in cracking open a market 10-100x larger than what we've ever seen before. Building this vision has admittedly taken longer than we estimated, giving more oxygen to our competition than we would have liked. But we remain convinced we are the only ones on the right path towards the biggest opportunity in the shortest time frame, even despite the stiffer than expected headwinds in the near term.
Founder and CEO of Expensify

Expensify's outlook statements are based on current estimates, expectations and assumptions and are not a guarantee of future performance. The following statements are forward-looking and actual results could differ materially depending on market conditions and the factors set forth under “Forward-Looking Statements” below. There can be no assurance that the Company will achieve the results expressed by this guidance.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), we provide certain non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, non-GAAP net loss, and free cash flow.
We believe our non-GAAP financial measures are useful in evaluating our business, measuring our performance, identifying trends affecting our business, formulating business plans and making strategic decisions. Accordingly, we believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our results of operations in the same manner as our management team. These non-GAAP financial measures are presented for supplemental informational purposes only, should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with GAAP, and may be different from similarly titled metrics or measures presented by other companies. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for financial information presented under GAAP. There are a number of limitations related to the use of non-GAAP financial measures versus comparable financial measures determined under GAAP. For example, other companies in our industry may calculate these non-GAAP financial measures differently or may use other measures to evaluate their performance. All of these limitations
could reduce the usefulness of these non-GAAP financial measures as analytical tools. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures and to not rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business. A reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable financial measure stated in accordance with GAAP is at the end of this press release.
Adjusted EBITDA. We define adjusted EBITDA as net income from operations excluding provision for income taxes, interest and other expenses, net, depreciation and amortization and stock-based compensation.
Non-GAAP net loss. We define non-GAAP net loss as net income (loss) from operations in accordance with US GAAP excluding stock-based compensation.
Free cash flow. We define Free cash flow as net cash (used in) provided by operating activities excluding changes in settlement assets and settlement liabilities, which represent funds held for customers and customer funds in transit, respectively, reduced by the purchases of property and equipment and software development costs.
The tables at the end of the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements provide reconciliations to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure to each of these non-GAAP financial measures.
Forward-looking statements in this press release, or made during the earnings call, which are not historical facts, are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1955. These statements include statements regarding our strategy, future financial condition, future operations, projected costs, prospects, plans, objectives of management and expected market growth, product developments and their potential impact, our ability to meet our long-term guidance, the amount and timing of any share repurchases and our stock-based compensation estimates and involve known and unknown risks that are difficult to predict. As a result, our actual results, performance or achievements may differ materially from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements because they contain words such as “may,” “will,” “shall,” “should,” “expects,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “could,” “intends,” “target,” “projects,” “contemplates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “predicts,” “potential,” “goal,” “ambition,” “objective,” “seeks,” “outlook,” or “continue” or the negative of these words or other similar terms or expressions that concern our expectations, strategy, plans, or intentions. Such forward-looking statements are necessarily based upon estimates and assumptions that, while considered reasonable by us and our management, are inherently uncertain. Factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations include, but are not limited to: the impact on inflation on us and our members; our borrowing costs have and may continue to increase as a result of increases in interest rates; our expectations regarding our financial performance and future operating performance; our ability to attract and retain members, expand usage of our platform, sell subscriptions to our platform and convert individuals and organizations into paying customers; the timing and success of new features, integrations, capabilities and enhancements by us, or by competitors to their products, or any other changes in the competitive landscape of our market; the amount and timing of operating expenses and capital expenditures that we may incur to maintain and expand our business and operations to remain competitive; the sufficiency of our cash, cash equivalents and investments to meet our liquidity needs; our ability to make required payments under and to comply with the various requirements of our current and future indebtedness; our cash flows, the prevailing stock prices, general economic and market conditions and other considerations that could affect the specific timing, price and size of repurchases under our stock repurchase program or our ability to fund any stock repurchases; the war in Ukraine and escalating geopolitical tensions as a result of Russia's invasion of Ukraine; our ability to effectively manage our exposure to fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates; the increased expenses associated with being a public company; the size of our addressable markets, market share and market trends; anticipated trends, developments and challenges in our industry, business and the highly competitive markets in which we operate; our expectations regarding our income tax liabilities and the adequacy of our reserves; our ability to effectively manage our growth and expand our infrastructure and maintain our corporate culture; our ability to identify, recruit and retain skilled personnel, including key members of senior management; the safety, affordability and convenience of our platform and our offerings; our ability to successfully defend litigation brought against us; our ability to successfully identify, manage and integrate any existing and potential acquisitions of businesses, talent, technologies or intellectual property;
general economic conditions in either domestic or international markets; our protections against security breaches, technical difficulties, or interruptions to our platform; our ability to maintain, protect and enhance our intellectual property; and other risks discussed in our filings with the SEC. 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. We caution you not to place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements, which are made only as of the date of this press release. We do not undertake or assume any obligation to update publicly any of these forward-looking statements to reflect actual results, new information or future events, changes in assumptions or changes in other factors affecting forward-looking statements, except to the extent required by applicable law. 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.
