  • Closed the acquisition of Pangiam in an all-stock transaction, combining BigBear.ai’s computer vision capabilities with facial recognition, image-based anomaly detection and advanced biometrics.
  • Cash balance of $81.4 million as of March 31, 2024.
  • Affirming full-year 2024 revenue guidance of $195 – $215 million.

COLUMBIA, Md.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–BigBear.ai Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: BBAI) (“BigBear.ai” or the “Company”), a leader in AI-powered decision intelligence solutions, today announced financial results for the first quarter of 2024 and issued an investor letter that has been posted to the Investor Relations section of the Company’s website.

BigBear.ai CEO Mandy Long said, “Today’s results reflect BigBear.ai’s steady progress in the first quarter of 2024 as we continue to operationalize AI at the edge for our customers in National Security, Digital Identity, and Supply Chain Management.”

I am proud of the positive momentum and spirit within the business, driven by a relentless focus on delivering our solutions in operational readiness, autonomy at the edge, contested logistics, modeling & simulation, and digital identity for our customers,” she continued.

Financial Highlights

  • Revenue decreased 21.4% to $33.1 million for the first quarter of 2024, compared to $42.2 million for the first quarter of 2023. The year-over-year decrease was primarily driven by the planned wind-down of the Air Force EPASS program in mid-2023 ($6.8 million) and the elimination of revenue from Virgin Orbit due to their bankruptcy announcement in April 2023 ($1.5 million). We also experienced delays in contract awards due to the continuing resolutions.
  • Gross margin of 21.1% in the first quarter of 2024, a decrease from 24.2% in the first quarter of 2023, primarily driven by an increase in equity-based compensation expense of $1.8 million and the elimination of revenue and gross margin from Virgin Orbit.
  • Net loss of $125.1 million for the first quarter of 2024, which includes a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $85.0 million, $24.0 million of non-cash expense which includes a $52.9 million loss related to the change in fair value of warrants that were issued in 2023 (the “2023 Warrants”) that were exercised in the first quarter of 2024, partially offset by gains of $10.6 million, net of cash proceeds received, related to the issuance of warrants in the first quarter of 2024 (the “2024 Warrants”), and a gain of $18.3 million related to the decrease in fair value of the 2024 Warrants from the date of issuance to the end of the first quarter, $5.2 million of equity-based compensation expense, and $0.9 million related to restructuring charges. Net loss for the first quarter of 2023 was $26.2 million, which included $10.6 million of non-cash expense related to the change in fair value of Private Investment in Public Equity (“PIPE”) warrants that were issued in January 2023, $3.8 million of equity-based compensation expense, and $0.8 million related to restructuring charges.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA* of $(1.6) million for the first quarter of 2024 compared to $(3.8) million for the first quarter of 2023, primarily driven by continued focus on operating expense reductions, including the recent acquisition of Pangiam.
  • SG&A of $16.9 million for the first quarter of 2024 compared to $20.4 million for the first quarter of 2023, primarily due to continued focus on operating expense reductions including combined business synergies.
  • Recurring SG&A* has been reduced from $15.3 million in the first quarter of 2023 to $13.6 million in the first quarter of 2024, a net improvement of $1.7 million, including the business combination with Pangiam.
  • Ending cash balance of $81.4 million as of March 31, 2024 compared to $32.6 million as of December 31, 2023, primarily driven by $53.8 million of proceeds from the 2023 Warrants that were exercised in the first quarter of 2024 and $13.9 million related to cash acquired from the acquisition of Pangiam.
  • Ending backlog of $296 million as of March 31, 2024.
  • The consolidated results include results from Pangiam from the acquisition date of February 29, 2024 through the end of the quarter.

Momentum

  • The US Army G-3/5/7 recently provided an $8.3 million extension to BigBear.ai to continue to lead the sustainment and modernization of mission critical force generation and analytics capabilities. This commitment along with the previous GFIM-OE extension demonstrates BigBear.ai’s position as the leader in providing critical enterprise IT capabilities to the Army.
  • Following the release of a competitive solicitation for Biometric International Exit at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) and Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD), Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) selected and awarded Pangiam, a BigBear.ai company, a contract for the provision of veriScan
  • Denver International Airport recently awarded a contract to Pangiam, a BigBear.ai Company, for the implementation of veriScan
  • BigBear.ai’s Pangiam was awarded a contract with a key port authority in Canada to deploy a biometric-enabled passenger processing application for entry into the United States. This brings BigBear.ai’s existing Linkware and VeriScan offerings into a new space, with the aim of replicating and scaling across multiple locations.
  • BigBear.ai’s Pangiam has signed an agreement with Melbourne Airport in Australia to trial Project Dartmouth, our AI/ML threat detection capability, to assist officers in detecting prohibited items in carry-on baggage. This is BigBear.ai’s first Project Dartmouth trial in Australia — an exciting partnership to help inform considerations for deploying such capabilities at scale in the future.
  • BigBear.ai announced it has been designated as an “Awardable” vendor for the Chief Digital and Artificial Intelligence Office’s (CDAO) Tradewinds Solutions Marketplace (the “Marketplace”). Five of the company’s products, including Sensor, Data and AI Orchestration (ConductorOS), Time-Series Forecasting (VANE), Contested Logistics Planning (AURORA), Maritime Domain Awareness (Arcas), and Publicly Available Data Curation (Observe) have been added to the Marketplace. Achieving ‘Awardable’ on the DoD’s Tradewinds enables the acceleration of the procurement process of these technologies across the DoD.
  • BigBear.ai formed a teaming agreement with Spinnaker SCA, a supply chain focused consulting firm, to further bolster consulting services for manufacturing and warehouse operations. By combining BigBear.ai’s ProModel® simulation software with Spinnaker SCA’s consulting expertise, supply chain, manufacturing and warehousing clients will benefit from strategic guidance, simulation-based validation of changes, and data-driven optimization to reduce costs, increase efficiency, and achieve faster time to value.

(1)

Includes employer payroll taxes due upon the vesting of equity awards granted to employees.

(2)

The increase in fair value of derivatives during the quarter ended March 31, 2024, relates to the $52.9 million loss recorded upon the exercise of the 2023 RDO and 2023 PIPE Warrants (the “2023 Warrants”) in connection with the warrant exercise agreements entered into effect February 27, 2024 and March 4, 2024. This loss was offset by gains of $10.6 million, net of cash proceeds received, related to the issuance of warrants in 2024 (the “2024 Warrants”), In addition, an $18.3 million reduction in fair value was recorded on the 2024 Warrants issued in connection with the warrant exercise agreements as the fair value decreased from the issue date to quarter end.

(3)

In the first quarter of 2024 and first quarter of 2023, the Company incurred employee separation costs associated with a strategic review of the Company’s capacity and future projections to better align the organization and cost structure and improve the affordability of its products and services.

(4)

Non-recurring professional fees related to the execution of certain strategic initiatives of the Company.

(5)

Non-recurring litigation consists primarily of legal settlements and related fees for specific proceedings that we have determined arise outside of the ordinary course of business based on the following considerations which we assess regularly: (1) the frequency of similar cases that have been brought to date, or are expected to be brought within two years; (2) the complexity of the case; (3) the nature of the remedy(ies) sought, including the size of any monetary damages sought; (4) offensive versus defensive posture of us; (5) the counterparty involved; and (6) our overall litigation strategy.

(6)

Transaction expenses during the quarter ended March 31, 2024 consist primarily of diligence, legal, and other related expenses incurred associated with the Pangiam Acquisition.

(7)

During the quarter ended March 31, 2024, the Company recognized a non-cash goodwill impairment charge primarily driven by a decrease in share price during the quarter compared to the share price of the equity issued as consideration for the purchase of Pangiam.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The financial information and data contained in this press release is unaudited. Some of the financial information and data contained in this press release, such as EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Recurring SG&A have not been prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). To supplement our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP in our press release, we also report certain non-GAAP financial measures. A “non-GAAP financial measure” refers to a numerical measure of a company’s historical or future financial performance, financial position, or cash flows that excludes (or includes) amounts that are included in (or excluded from) the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in such company’s financial statements. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the relevant GAAP measures and should be read in conjunction with information presented on a GAAP basis. Because not all companies use identical calculations, our presentation of non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

The presentation of these financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered measures of BigBear.ai’s liquidity. Investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as an analytical tool. In particular, many of the adjustments to our GAAP financial measures reflect the exclusion of certain items, as defined in our non-GAAP definitions below, which are recurring and will be reflected in our financial results for the foreseeable future. In addition, these measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies, even where similarly titled, limiting their usefulness for comparison purposes and therefore should not be used to compare BigBear.ai’s performance to that of other companies. We endeavor to compensate for the limitation of the non-GAAP financial measures presented by also providing the most directly comparable GAAP measures and descriptions of the reconciling items and adjustments to derive the non-GAAP financial measures.

We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide investors and analysts with useful supplemental information about the financial performance of our business, enable comparison of financial results between periods where certain items may vary independent of business performance, and allow for greater transparency with respect to key measures used by management to operate and analyze our business over different periods of time.

EBITDA is defined as net loss before interest expense, interest income, income tax (benefit) expense and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA further adjusted for equity-based compensation, employer payroll taxes related to equity-based compensation, net increase in fair value of derivatives, restructuring charges, non-recurring strategic initiatives, non-recurring litigation, transaction expenses and goodwill impairment.
