Revenues trending better than expected. The first quarter revenue “beat” indicates favorable revenue trends at the company, which appears likely to swing toward positive revenue growth in the next few quarters. Revenues are moderating at a fast clip, from down 12.6% in Q3 2023, to down 9.6% in Q4 2023 to down a modest 3.5% in Q1 (which beat our down 4.5% estimate). Q2 revenues are expected to decline a modest 0.5%.

Margins expected to improve. As the company reimagines its business, we expect that cost cutting actions should substantially improve margins in coming quarters. We expect adj. EBITDA margins to increase to the low double digits. As such, we are raising our Q3 and Q4 adj. EBITDA estimates by 32% and 26%, respectively.
