Q2 2022 Business Highlights

  • Increased 2022 Revenue Guidance: Record first half performance and a solid second half pipeline of merchant activity resulted in upward revised full year revenue outlook for the company.
  • Accelerating Path to Profitability through improved Adjusted EBITDA Outlook: Through ongoing financial discipline and a focused evaluation of Riskified’s operating expenses, the Company made meaningful strides in reducing its budgeted expense base while fully maintaining its growth outlook. As a result, Riskified was able to improve its Adjusted EBITDA outlook for the full year of 2022 by approximately 18% and accelerate its path to profitability.
  • Strengthened Leadership Team with Appointment of President of Worldwide Field Operations to Propel Growth: Riskified recently announced Ravi Kumaraswami’s appointment as President of Worldwide Field Operations. Mr. Kumaraswami, a proven technology leader with more than 20 years of experience, will build upon existing momentum and spearhead the go-forward strategy and operations of Riskified’s global sales, marketing and channel teams, by focusing on identifying new opportunities and partnerships to further accelerate our growth.
  • Further Diversified Business with the Addition of New Merchants: Riskified had a strong quarter of activity driven primarily by upsells within our existing customer base and new merchant additions. The Company’s top ten new merchants represented five different industries across three separate geographies, which we believe demonstrates Riskified’s ability to win new merchants across varied macroeconomic environments.
  • Momentum within Tickets & Travel Industry Group: Tickets and Travel demonstrated resilience to rebound from pre-pandemic levels and was one of the most meaningful areas of growth during the second quarter. We believe the Company remains well positioned to benefit from a resurgence in travel and a return to live events as a result of the ongoing re-opening trends.

We believe that our new optimized cost structure should increase the ROI of certain projects, and I am very excited about our progress in this area.”
