Factors to Consider
Digital Turbine is expected to have benefited from strength in its mobile device management platform, Ignite, which gained significant traction during the third quarter.
As of Nov 4, 2019, more than 325 million devices had Ignite installed compared to 36 million devices reported in the second quarter.
During the quarter, the company focused on adding strategic resources to improve international revenue-per-device (RPD) and scale partnerships and infrastructure, which is expected to have driven incremental increases in spending by high profile multinational advertising clients such as Pinterest, Twitter and Uber.
Notably, in the second quarter, U.S. RPD increased 30% year over year, reflecting strong demand for the Digital Turbine platform among advertisers.
Additionally, improvement in global RPD indicated by solid demand for the company’s ad solutions is expected to have benefited the company in the third quarter.
Moreover, strong contributions from products like SingleTap, Folders, App Wizard and Notifications are expected to have contributed to the company’s top line.
Digital Turbine continued integration with new demand sources from SingleTap partners like AppsFlyer, Branch and Kochava in the to-be reported quarter. These are well-known attribution and analytics companies, covering roughly 85% of the global mobile applications market.
Growth in devices based on SingleTap is expected to have driven more international advertising partners to the platform in the third quarter.
Further, an expanding partner base, which includes Pandora, Uber, Netflix, Twitter, Pinterest and others, is likely to have enhanced penetration in the third quarter.
Notably, the company intends to expand from 50 to 70 countries with its new partner, Samsung, by the end of second-quarter fiscal 2020. Developments related to this initiative are likely to have boosted the company’s growth and credibility among international advertisers and other global OEM partners.
Also, notable partnerships in the United States with the likes of Verizon VZ and AT&T T are expected to have helped the company pull demand from its media partners and advertising clientele in the United States during the quarter.
For example, during the third quarter, Digital Turbine became the official partner to deliver Disney’s DIS Disney+ on Android devices. Notably, the company already handles distribution and management of high profile applications such as Facebook, Netflix and Apple music for Verizon.
