Austin, Texas [August 11, 2022] (ORIGINAL: GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Phunware, Inc. (NASDAQ: PHUN) (“Phunware” or “the Company”), a fully-integrated enterprise cloud platform mobile that provides products, solutions, data and services for brands worldwide, today announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2022.
“After previously guiding investors to an upwardly revised top-line revenue growth exceeding 275% year-over-year for Q2, we are thrilled to have outperformed that target with a new second quarter record for reported revenues as a public company, delivering actual revenues exceeding 282% growth to close the first half of our fiscal year,” said Alan S. Knitowski, President, CEO and Co-Founder of Phunware. “We continue operating effectively at the intersection of mobile, cloud, big data and blockchain across all lines of business and continue to activate our MaaS Loyalty and Rewards ecosystem through PhunWallet, PhunToken, PhunCoin and PhunVerse, commercializing a truly decentralized global data economy in both the physical and virtual worlds. Importantly, and in tandem, we are reiterating our forward revenue guidance for 2022 of up roughly 250% year-over-year, or $25M. In parallel, we also expect that the back-end of 2022 will represent a new second half record for reported revenues as a public company for its comparable period.”

“We continued to build on the momentum from Q1 by posting our largest revenue Q2 quarter as a public company,” said Matt Aune, CFO of Phunware. “In addition to the outstanding top line growth of 282% year-over-year, we continued to invest in the business to further bolster our product offerings and enable us to deliver our solutions even faster and more efficiently. We are pleased with the sequential improvements made to our gross margins and expect to see continued improvement as we bring the new Lyte by Phunware facility online in Q3 in Austin.
