Facebook Reports Second Quarter 2020 Results

Facebook, Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) today reported financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2020.

“We’re glad to be able to provide small businesses the tools they need to grow and be successful online during these challenging times,” said Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook founder and CEO. “And we’re proud that people can rely on our services to stay connected when they can’t always be together in person.”

Second Quarter 2020 Operational and Other Financial Highlights

  • Facebook daily active users (DAUs) – DAUs were 1.79 billion on average for June 2020, an increase of 12% year-over-year.
  • Facebook monthly active users (MAUs) – MAUs were 2.70 billion as of June 30, 2020, an increase of 12% year-over-year.
  • Family daily active people (DAP) – DAP was 2.47 billion on average for June 2020, an increase of 15% year-over-year.
  • Family monthly active people (MAP) – MAP was 3.14 billion as of June 30, 2020, an increase of 14% year-over-year.
  • Capital expenditures – Capital expenditures, including principal payments on finance leases, were $3.36 billion for the second quarter of 2020.
  • Cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities – Cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities were $58.24 billion as of June 30, 2020. On July 7, 2020, we paid approximately $5.8 billion at the then–current exchange rate for our investment in Jio Platforms Limited.
  • Headcount – Headcount was 52,534 as of June 30, 2020, an increase of 32% year-over-year.

Revenue – In the first three weeks of July, our year-over-year ad revenue growth rate was approximately in-line with our second quarter 2020 year-over-year ad revenue growth rate of 10%. We expect our full quarter year-over-year ad revenue growth rate for the third quarter of 2020 will be roughly similar to this July performance. There are several factors contributing to this outlook, including:

  • First, continued macroeconomic uncertainty, including the pace of recovery and the prospects for additional economic stimulus;
  • Second, our expectation that some of the recent surge in community engagement will normalize as regions reopen;
  • Third, the impact from certain advertisers pausing spend on our platforms related to the current boycott, which is reflected in our July trends; and
  • Lastly, headwinds related to ad targeting and measurement, including the impact of regulation, such as the California Consumer Privacy Act, as well as headwinds from expected changes to mobile operating platforms, which we anticipate will be increasingly significant as the year progresses.

Total expenses – We expect total expenses in 2020 to be in the range of $52-55 billion, narrowed slightly from the prior range of $52-56 billion.

Capital expenditures – We expect full-year 2020 capital expenditures to be approximately $16 billion, at the high end of our prior $14-16 billion range, as we have resumed data center construction efforts earlier than expected. However, a great deal of uncertainty remains in our outlook, and our full year capital expenditures will depend on how the pandemic impacts our ability to construct data centers and refresh equipment.

Tax rates – We expect our full-year 2020 tax rate to be in the mid-teens, although we may see fluctuations in our quarterly rate depending on our financial results.
