Digital Turbine, Inc., through its subsidiaries, simplifies content discovery and delivers it directly to the device. Its on-device media platform powers frictionless application and content discovery, user acquisition and engagement, operational efficiency, and monetization opportunities. Through December 31, 2020, Digital Turbine's technology platform has been adopted by more than 40 mobile operators and device original equipment manufacturers ("OEMs"), and has delivered more than 4.8 billion application preloads for tens of thousands of advertising campaigns. The Company operates this business as one operating and reportable segment - Media Distribution, which was previously referred to as the operating segment O&O (operators and OEMs) and the reportable segment Advertising.
As the Company's suite of product offerings expands, both organically and through acquisitions, we believe that this renaming of our reporting and operating segment better reflects the way management views the business. There are no changes or historical differences to product offerings and financial information that were referred to as the Advertising segment in prior periods. While advertising, in general, remains a focus of our Media Distribution segment, we feel that this change in name more accurately conveys to the reader what we do for our customers and partners.
The Company's Media Distribution business consists of products and services that simplify the discovery and delivery of mobile application and content media for consumers.
•Application Media represents the portion of the business where our platform delivers apps to end users through partnerships with carrier networks and OEMs. Application Media optimizes revenues by using the developed technology to streamline, track and manage app install demand from hundreds of application developers across various publishers, carriers, OEMs and devices.
•Content Media represents the portion of the business where our platform presents news, weather, sports and other content directly within the native device experience (e.g., as the start page in the mobile browser, a widget, on unlock, etc.) through partnerships with carrier networks and OEMs. Content Media optimizes revenue by a combination of:
◦Programmatic Ad Partner Revenue – advertising within the content media that’s sold on an ad exchange, at a market rate (CPM - Cost Per Thousand),
◦Sponsored Content – sponsored content media from 3rd party content providers – presented similar to an ad – that is monetized when a recommended story is viewed (CPC – Cost Per Click)
◦Editorial Content – owned or licensed media – presented similar to an ad – that is monetized when the media is clicked on (CPC - Cost Per Click).
On February 28, 2020, the Company completed the acquisition of Mobile Posse, Inc. (the "Acquisition") from ACME Mobile, LLC (“ACME”). The Company acquired all of the outstanding capital stock of Mobile Posse in exchange for an estimated total consideration of: (1) $41,500 in cash paid at closing (subject to customary closing purchase price adjustments) and (2) an estimated earn-out of $23,735, to be paid in cash, based on Mobile Posse achieving certain future target net revenues, less associated revenue shares, over a twelve-month period (the “Earn-Out Period”) following the closing of the Acquisition, noting that the earn-out amount is subject to change based on final results and calculation. Under the terms of the earn-out, over the Earn-Out Period, the Company will pay ACME a certain percentage of actual net revenues (less associated revenue shares) of Mobile Posse depending on the extent to which Mobile Posse achieves certain target net revenues (less associated revenue shares) for the relevant period. The earn-out payments will be paid quarterly with a true-up calculation and payment after the first nine months of the Earn-Out Period. The acquisition of cash is not reflected in the total consideration detailed above. Final working capital adjustments were determined during the quarter ended June 30, 2020 and resulted in additional purchase price consideration of $453, which was reflected on the balance sheet as an increase in goodwill. This changed the initial cash consideration, not inclusive of the earn-out, to $41,953.
During the three and nine months ended December 31, 2020, $4,662 and $15,419 was added to the previous estimated earn-out of $23,735, bringing the estimated total earn-out related to the acquisition of Mobile Posse to $39,154. Of the amounts recorded and accrued for the earn-out related to the Acquisition, $29,154 has been paid to ACME, and $10,000 remains accrued as of December 31, 2020. See Note "Commitments and Contingencies" for more information regarding the estimated earn-out. As of December 31, 2020, estimated total consideration, inclusive of estimated remaining earn-out, for the Acquisition is $81,107, of which $71,107 has been paid and $10,000 remains accrued. The actual remaining earn-out payment is subject to continued performance of the Acquisition and is subject to re-valuation prior to the final settlement based on final actual results and calculations in March 2021.
During the nine month period ended December 31, 2020 an adjustment to increase goodwill in the amount of $736 was made to reclassify the impact of a change in assumptions related to deferred tax assets previously booked as a component of purchase accounting for the Acquisition.
The Acquisition is consistent with the Company's strategy to provide a comprehensive media and advertising solution for operator and OEM partners while enriching the mobile experience for end users by delivering relevant media rich content to their fingertips. The addition of Mobile Posse's offerings will provide synergies and options for our partners and advertisers. The Company's suite of offerings continue to focus on promoting higher user engagement and boosting advertising revenue for mobile operators and OEMs.
