“As the unprecedented digital advertising boom attributed to the end of the pandemic began to normalize in 2023, the ad tech industry faced a year of recalibration, with businesses adapting to post-pandemic consumer behaviors.” stated Jason Williams, Kidoz CEO. “Against this backdrop, the Kidoz contextual network for reaching kids and families on mobile devices continued to experience strong usage and continues to be adopted by new apps at a rapid pace.  While mobile in-app media continues to have a strong place for brands reaching children, brands in the wider market have yet to enact full media strategies that include mobile gaming inventory.  Tests are happening and plans are being built, but full scale buying by brands on mobile games has not started,” continued Williams.

“We believe that positive distortions in the overall advertising market in fiscal 2022 existed due to COVID and then started to return to normal in fiscal 2023.  It is our opinion that the 2023 decrease in total revenue over fiscal 2022 is due to this overall weakness in the general advertising market and the loss of some campaigns from fiscal 2022 which did not renew in fiscal 2023.  However, the strong increase in our programmatic advertising revenue due to our active promotion of this revenue stream, our new technologies, and the growing strong demand for programmatic advertising in the overall market, partially offset this decline.”

“Furthermore, while the focus of the Company continues to be in the development and expansion of the Kidoz Safe Ad Network, we expended considerable resources developing our technology to expand into new markets that include teens and families.  These new technologies and processes continue to develop as do many conversations with leading brands who are interested in the power of mobile media given its strong performance metrics and ability to feature rich media creatives. The Company continued to invest throughout 2023, increasing its overall staff slightly to 43 at December 31, 2023, plus adding seven new sales partnerships throughout the world, in anticipation of a return to growth in 2024 and future years, as mobile digital advertising continues to develop.”

“Historically, large, kids focused brands reached consumers through traditional media channels utilizing television, radio, and print to communicate their messages. In the rapidly evolving landscape of digital advertising, Kidoz is at the forefront of transforming how major brands connect with their youngest audiences by enabling their message to reach their audience, contextually and safely via mobile digital devices.”

“Additionally, 2023 continued to see expanded focus on legislative measures, in America and Europe, aiming to strengthen online child privacy which we believe will further propel Kidoz forward in terms of usage and media sales.  We are pleased with the Company’s performance throughout 2023 to help recover from the challenges earlier in the year,” stated Jason Williams, Kidoz CEO.  “Kidoz continues to make great strides in the advancement of our technology and innovation of our tools and processes which enables the Company to differentiate itself from the competition and capture a large share of the mobile brand and performance advertising market directed at kids and families.”

“Management believes 2024 will be a strong year of growth for the Company,” concluded Jason Williams, Kidoz CEO.

This press release refers to “Adjusted EBITDA” which is a non-GAAP financial measure that does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP.  Adjusted EBITDA is not presented in accordance with, or as an alternative to, GAAP financial measures and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”). We encourage investors to review the GAAP financial measures included in the last Quarterly Form 6-K, including our unaudited consolidated financial statements, to aid in their analysis and understanding of our performance and in making comparisons.

We use Adjusted EBITDA internally to evaluate our performance and make financial and operational decisions that are presented in a manner that adjusts from their equivalent GAAP measures or that supplement the information provided by our GAAP measures.  Adjusted EBITDA is defined by us as EBITDA (net income (loss) plus depreciation expense, amortization expense, interest, stock-based compensation and impairment of goodwill), further adjusted to exclude certain non-cash expenses and other adjustments.  We use Adjusted EBITDA because we believe it more clearly highlights business trends that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on GAAP financial measures, since Adjusted EBITDA eliminates from our results specific financial items that have less bearing on our core operating performance.

Our Adjusted EBITDA is reconciled as follows:

Twelve Months Ended December 31, 2023 Twelve Months Ended December 31, 2022 Three Months Ended December 31, 2023 Three Months Ended December 31, 2022
