Momentive Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2022 Financial Results
Announces Workforce Reduction Plan
SAN MATEO, Calif. — February 16, 2023 — Momentive (NASDAQ: MNTV), the maker of SurveyMonkey and GetFeedback, today reported fourth quarter and full year results for the period ended December 31, 2022.
“Our fourth quarter results illustrate our continued execution against our top priorities: driving meaningful operating leverage and positioning the company for more profitable growth,” said Zander Lurie, chief executive officer of Momentive. “Today, we are announcing plans to decrease costs and prioritize the products and pricing models that efficiently drive customer acquisition, retention, and expansion. While this is a difficult decision, we have conviction these steps will enable us to navigate a more challenging selling environment in the short-term, expand margins meaningfully in full year 2023, and deliver sustained, profitable growth over time.”
Q4 2022 Key Results
Full Year 2022 Key Results
In a Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission today, Momentive also announced a plan designed to further improve its operating margin (the “Plan”). The Plan involves a reduction of the company’s workforce by approximately 14%.
We estimate that we will incur approximately $7.0 million to $9.0 million in charges related to employee severance, employee benefits, and related facilitation costs in connection with the Plan. We expect that the majority of these costs will be incurred and paid during the first quarter of 2023, and that the execution of the Plan, including cash payments, will be substantially complete by the end of the second quarter of 2023.
Potential position eliminations in each country are subject to local law and consultation requirements, which may extend this process beyond the first quarter of 2023 in certain countries. The charges that we expect to incur are subject to a number of assumptions, including local law requirements in various jurisdictions, and actual expenses may differ materially from the estimates disclosed above. The costs associated with the Plan will be included in our GAAP results but are expected to be excluded from our non-GAAP financial results.
For the first quarter of 2023, Momentive currently expects the following:
|Revenue Growth (year-over-year)||0% to 2%|
|Non-GAAP operating margin||6% to 8%|
For the first quarter of 2023, the company expects basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding to be approximately 149 million. The basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding for the first quarter of 2023 do not include any forecasts for share repurchases after December 31, 2022.
Momentive is not providing full year 2023 revenue guidance due to the current macroeconomic environment. However, improving operating margin will remain a top priority in 2023 and the changes to the cost structure announced today put the company on a path to double non-GAAP operating margin in full year 2023 compared to full year 2022.
For a detailed explanation of the company’s non-GAAP measures, please refer to the appendix section of this press release. For more information on the company’s fourth quarter and full year 2022 financial results, please visit the Momentive investor relations website at investor.momentive.ai.
