NOTE ABOUT FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, which statements involve substantial risk and uncertainties. Forward-looking statements can be identified by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts and are often characterized by the use of words such as “believes,” “estimates,” “expects,” “projects,” “may,” “intends,” “plans,” “targets,” “forecasts” or “anticipates,” or by discussions of strategy, plans or intentions. Such forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, assumptions and other important factors that could cause our actual results, performance or achievements, or industry results, to differ materially from historical results or any future results, performance or achievements expressed, suggested or implied by such forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, statements about:
the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, including its impact on global and regional economies and economic activity;
general economic uncertainty in global markets and a worsening of global economic conditions or low levels of economic growth, including inflation, foreign exchange fluctuations and supply-chain issues;
the effect of general economic and political conditions, including Russia's invasion of Ukraine;
our financial performance, including revenue, cost and expenses and cash flows;
our ability to attract, retain and recover Pinners and maintain and grow their level of engagement;
our ability to provide content that is useful and relevant to Pinners’ personal taste and interests;
our ability to develop successful new products or improve existing ones;
our ability to maintain and enhance our brand and reputation;
potential harm caused by compromises in security, including our cybersecurity protections and resources and costs required to prevent, detect and remediate potential security breaches;
potential harm caused by changes in online application stores or internet search engines’ methodologies, particularly search engine optimization methodologies and policies;
discontinuation, disruptions or outages in third-party single sign-on access;
our ability to compete effectively in our industry;
our ability to scale our business, including our monetization efforts;
our ability to attract and retain advertisers and scale our revenue model;
our ability to attract and retain creators that create relevant and engaging content;
our ability to develop effective products and tools for advertisers, including measurement tools;
our ability to expand and monetize our platform internationally;
our ability to effectively manage the growth of our business;
our ability to successfully manage our new flexible work model with a more distributed workforce;
our lack of operating history and ability to sustain profitability;
decisions that reduce short-term revenue or profitability or do not produce the long-term benefits we expect;
fluctuations in our operating results;
our ability to raise additional capital on favorable terms or at all;
our ability to realize anticipated benefits from mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, strategic partnerships and other investments;
our ability to protect our intellectual property;
our ability to receive, process, store, use and share data, and compliance with laws and regulations related to data privacy and content;
current or potential litigation and regulatory actions involving us;
our ability to comply with modified or new laws and regulations applying to our business, and potential harm to our business as a result of those laws and regulations;
3


real or perceived inaccuracies in metrics related to our business;
disruption of, degradation in or interference with our use of Amazon Web Services and our infrastructure; and
our ability to attract and retain personnel.
These statements are based on our historical performance and on our current plans, estimates and projections in light of information currently available to us, and therefore you should not place undue reliance on them. The inclusion of this forward-looking information should not be regarded as a representation by us or any other person that the future plans, estimates or expectations contemplated by us will be achieved. Forward-looking statements made in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q speak only as of the date on which such statements are made, and we undertake no obligation to update them in light of new information or future events, except as required by law.
You should carefully consider the above factors, as well as the factors discussed elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. The factors identified above should not be construed as an exhaustive list of factors that could affect our future results and should be read in conjunction with the other cautionary statements that are included in this Quarterly Report. Furthermore, new risks and uncertainties arise from time to time, and it is impossible for us to predict those events or how they may affect us. If any of these trends, risks or uncertainties actually occurs or continues, our business, revenue and financial results could be harmed, the trading price of our Class A common stock could decline and you could lose all or part of your investment.
Unless expressly indicated or the context requires otherwise, the terms "Pinterest," "company," "we," "us," and "our" in this document refer to Pinterest, Inc., a Delaware corporation, and, where appropriate, its wholly owned subsidiaries. The term "Pinterest" may also refer to our products, regardless of the manner in which they are accessed. For references to accessing Pinterest on the "web" or via a "website," such terms refer to accessing Pinterest on personal computers. For references to accessing Pinterest on "mobile," such term refers to accessing Pinterest via a mobile application or via a mobile-optimized version of our website such as m.pinterest.com, whether on a mobile phone or tablet.

LIMITATIONS OF KEY METRICS AND OTHER DATA
The numbers for our key metrics, which include our monthly active users (MAUs) and average revenue per user (ARPU), are calculated using internal company data based on the activity of user accounts. We define a monthly active user as an authenticated Pinterest user who visits our website, opens our mobile application or interacts with Pinterest through one of our browser or site extensions, such as the Save button, at least once during the 30-day period ending on the date of measurement. Unless otherwise indicated, we present MAUs based on the number of MAUs measured on the last day of the current period. We measure monetization of our platform through our average revenue per user metric. We define ARPU as our total revenue in a given geography during a period divided by the average of the number of MAUs in that geography during the period. We calculate average MAUs based on the average of the number of MAUs measured on the last day of the current period and the last day prior to the beginning of the current period. We calculate ARPU by geography based on our estimate of the geography in which revenue-generating activities occur. We use these metrics to assess the growth and health of the overall business and believe that MAUs and ARPU best reflect our ability to attract, retain, engage and monetize our users, and thereby drive revenue. While these numbers are based on what we believe to be reasonable estimates of our user base for the applicable period of measurement, there are inherent challenges in measuring usage of our products across large online and mobile populations around the world. In addition, we are continually seeking to improve our estimates of our user base, and such estimates may change due to improvements or changes in technology or our methodology.

1.Description of Business and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Description of Business
Pinterest was incorporated in Delaware in 2008 and is headquartered in San Francisco, California. Pinterest is a visual discovery engine that people around the globe use to find the inspiration to create a life they love. We generate revenue by delivering ads on our website and mobile application.
Basis of Presentation and Consolidation
We prepared the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"). The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Pinterest, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiaries. We have eliminated all intercompany balances and transactions.
The condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2021 included herein was derived from the audited financial statements as of that date. We have condensed or omitted certain information and notes normally included in complete financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. As such, these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2021, which are included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K.
In our opinion, the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all normal recurring adjustments necessary to present fairly the results for the interim periods presented, but they are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2022.
Reclassifications
We have reclassified certain amounts in prior periods to conform with current presentation.
Use of Estimates
Preparing our condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect amounts reported in the condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. We base these estimates and judgments on historical experience and various other assumptions that we consider reasonable. GAAP requires us to make estimates and assumptions in several areas, including the fair values of financial instruments, assets acquired and liabilities assumed through business combinations, share-based awards, and contingencies as well as the collectability of our accounts receivable, the useful lives of our intangible assets and property and equipment, the incremental borrowing rate we use to determine our operating lease liabilities, and revenue recognition, among others. Actual results could differ materially from these estimates and judgments.
Significant Accounting Policies
There have been no material changes to our significant accounting policies from our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021.

3. Acquisition
On June 10, 2022, we acquired all outstanding shares of The Yes Platform, Inc. (“The Yes”), an AI powered shopping platform for fashion. We believe the acquisition of The Yes will help accelerate our vision for Pinterest to be the home of taste-driven shopping.
The total purchase consideration was $87.6 million in cash. Of this, we attributed $15.0 million to customer relationships, which have useful lives of one year; $13.6 million to developed technology, which has a useful life of three years; and $60.0 million to goodwill. Goodwill represents the synergies we expect to realize from the acquisition and the assembled workforce and is not deductible for tax purposes.
We included the results of The Yes’s operations in our condensed consolidated financial statements beginning on the acquisition date. The acquisition did not have a material impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements so we have not presented historical and pro forma disclosures.

5. Commitments and Contingencies
Purchase Commitments
In April 2021, we entered into a new private pricing addendum with Amazon Web Services (“AWS”), which governs our use of cloud computing infrastructure provided by AWS. Under the new pricing addendum, we are required to purchase at least $3,250.0 million of cloud services from AWS through April 2029. If we fail to do so, we are required to pay the difference between the amount we spend and the required commitment amount. As of June 30, 2022, our remaining contractual commitment is $2,672.2 million. We expect to meet our remaining commitment.
Legal Matters
We are involved in various lawsuits, claims and proceedings that arise in the ordinary course of business, including those described below. While the results of legal matters are inherently uncertain, we do not believe there is a reasonable possibility that the ultimate resolution of these matters, either individually or in aggregate, will have a material adverse effect on our business, financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
In November and December 2020, certain of our executives and members of our board of directors were named as defendants in shareholder derivative lawsuits filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. Pinterest was also named as a nominal defendant. The lawsuits purport to assert claims for breach of fiduciary duty in connection with allegations of gender and racial discrimination at Pinterest. In addition, the lawsuits purport to assert claims for waste, abuse of control, aiding and abetting breaches of fiduciary duties, unjust enrichment, and violations of Section 14(a) of the Exchange Act. The complaints seek declaratory and injunctive relief, corporate governance changes, monetary damages, interest, disgorgement, and fees and costs. On July 14, 2021, another shareholder derivative complaint with similar allegations was filed in the same court and was subsequently related to the earlier action. The cases were referred to a magistrate judge for mediation, and the proceedings were stayed during the pendency of that mediation. On November 24, 2021, the parties entered into a stipulation of settlement. Preliminary approval was granted February 16, 2022, and a final approval for the settlement was granted on May 26, 2022.
In March 2021, certain of our executives and members of our board of directors were named as defendants in a shareholder derivative lawsuit filed in the Delaware Chancery Court. Pinterest was also named as a nominal defendant. The complaint alleges that executives and members of the board breached their fiduciary duties to the company in connection with allegations of gender and racial discrimination at Pinterest. The complaint seeks damages, litigation costs, and interest. On May 10, 2021, the court stayed this lawsuit in light of the related pending case in the Northern District of California and on July 21, 2022 the matter was dismissed.
6. Share-Based Compensation
Equity Incentive Plan
In June 2009, our board of directors adopted and approved our 2009 Stock Plan (the "2009 Plan"), which provides for the issuance of stock options, Restricted Stock Awards ("RSAs") and Restricted Stock Units ("RSUs") to qualified employees, directors and consultants. Stock options granted under our 2009 Plan have a maximum life of 10 years

and an exercise price not less than 100% of the fair market value of our common stock on the date of grant. RSUs granted under our 2009 Plan have a maximum life of seven years. No shares of our common stock were reserved for future issuance under our 2009 Plan as of June 30, 2022.
Our 2019 Plan became effective upon closing of our initial public offering and succeeds our 2009 Plan. Our 2019 Omnibus Incentive Plan (the "2019 Plan") provides for the issuance of stock options, RSAs, RSUs and other equity- or cash-based awards to qualified employees, directors and consultants. Stock options granted under our 2019 Plan have a maximum life of 10 years and an exercise price not less than 100% of the fair market value of our common stock on the date of grant. 132,432,216 shares of our Class A common stock were reserved for future issuance under our 2019 Plan as of June 30, 2022.
The number of shares of our Class A common stock available for issuance under the 2019 Plan will be increased by the number of shares of our Class B common stock subject to awards outstanding under our 2009 Plan that would, but for the terms of the 2019 Plan, have returned to the share reserves of the 2009 Plan pursuant to the terms of such awards, including as the result of forfeiture, repurchase, expiration or retention by us in order to satisfy an award’s exercise price or tax withholding obligations. In addition, the number of shares of our Class A common stock reserved for issuance under our 2019 Plan will automatically increase on the first day of each fiscal year through and including January 1, 2029, in an amount equal to 5% of the total number of shares of our Class A common stock and our Class B common stock outstanding on the last day of the calendar month before the date of each automatic increase, or a lesser number of shares determined by our board of directors.

Fair Value of Stock Options
We measure stock options based on their estimated grant date fair values, which we determine using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model, and we record the resulting expense in our condensed consolidated statements of operations over the requisite service period, which is generally four years.
We estimated the fair value of the stock options granted during the six months ended June 30, 2022, using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model with the following assumptions:
Six Months Ended
June 30, 2022
Expected term (in years)
6.1
Risk-free interest rate
3.2 %
Expected volatility
61.1 %
Dividend yield
 %
The key inputs we used in the Black-Scholes model are:
Expected term – The expected term represents the period we expect our share-based awards to be outstanding, which is also the period we used to measure risk-free interest rates and expected volatility. We

estimated the expected term using the simplified method as we do not have sufficient historical stock option exercise data.
Risk-free interest rate – We estimated the risk-free interest rate based on zero-coupon U.S. Treasury notes.
Expected volatility – We estimated expected volatility based on a combination of our historical volatility and that of comparable publicly-traded companies.
Dividend yield – We applied a dividend yield of zero because we have never paid or declared dividends, and we have no plan to do so in the foreseeable future.
The weighted-average grant-date fair value of stock options granted during the six months ended June 30, 2022 was $11.79. No stock options were granted during the six months ended June 30, 2021.
7. Net Income (Loss) Per Share
We present net income (loss) per share using the two-class method required for multiple classes of common stock. Holders of our Class A and Class B common stock have identical rights except with respect to voting, conversion and transfer rights and therefore share equally in our net income or losses.
We calculate basic net income (loss) per share by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period.
Diluted net income (loss) per share gives effect to all potential shares of common stock, including stock options, RSAs and RSUs to the extent these are dilutive. The calculation of diluted net income (loss) of Class A common stock assumes the conversion of our Class B common stock to Class A common stock, while the diluted net income (loss) of Class B common stock does not assume the conversion of those shares to Class A common stock.
We calculated basic and diluted net income (loss) per share as follows (in thousands, except per share amounts):
