1.    Business Overview and Basis of Presentation
Marqeta, Inc., or the Company, creates digital payment technology for innovation leaders. The Company's modern card issuing platform places control over payment transactions into the hands of its customers enabling them to develop modern, state-of-the-art product experiences.
The Company provides all of its customers with issuer processor services and for most of its customers it also acts as a card program manager. The Company primarily earns revenue from processing card transactions for its customers.
The Company was incorporated in the state of Delaware in 2010 and is headquartered in Oakland, California, with offices in the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia and a legal entity in Brazil, Canada, and Singapore as of March 31, 2023.
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America, or GAAP, and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission, or the SEC, for interim reporting. Certain information and note disclosures included in our annual financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. The condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2022 has been derived from our audited consolidated financial statements, which are included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022, which was filed with the SEC on February 28, 2023. The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K.
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. In the opinion of management, the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments of a normal, recurring nature considered necessary for a fair presentation of the Company's consolidated financial position, results of operations, comprehensive loss, and cash flows for the interim periods presented. The interim results for the three months ended March 31, 2023 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2023, or for any other future annual or interim period.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of the financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions relating to reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent liabilities, and reported amounts of revenue and expenses. Significant estimates and assumptions include, but are not limited to, the fair value and useful lives of assets acquired and liabilities assumed through business combinations, the estimation of contingent liabilities, the estimation of variable consideration in contracts with customers, and the reserve for contract contingencies and processing errors. Actual results could differ materially from these estimates.
Business Risks and Uncertainties
The Company has incurred net losses since its inception. For the three months ended March 31, 2023, the Company incurred a net loss of $68.8 million and had an accumulated deficit of $671.0 million as of March 31, 2023. The Company expects to incur net losses from operations for the foreseeable future as it incurs costs and expenses related to creating new products for customers, acquiring new customers, developing its brand, expanding into new geographies and developing the existing platform infrastructure. The Company believes that its cash and cash equivalents of $1.1 billion and marketable securities of $408.7 million as of March 31, 2023 are sufficient to fund its operations through at least the next twelve months from the issuance of these financial statements.

2.    Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
The Company’s significant accounting policies are discussed in “Consolidated Financial Statements—Note 2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies” in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022. There have been no significant changes to these policies during the three months ended March 31, 2023, except for the addition of new policies relating to business combinations, goodwill and acquisition-related intangible assets as described below.
Segment Information
The Company operates as a single operating segment. The Company's chief operating decision maker is its Chief Executive Officer, who reviews financial information presented on a consolidated basis for purposes of making operating decisions, assessing financial performance, allocating resources, and evaluating the Company's financial performance.
For the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022, revenue outside of the United States, based on the billing address of the customer, was not material. As of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022, long-lived assets located outside of the United States were not material.
Restricted Cash
Restricted cash consists of deposits with financial institutions that issue payment cards (credit, debit, or prepaid) either on their own behalf or on behalf of businesses that issue customized card products to their end users, or Issuing Banks, to provide the Issuing Bank collateral in the event that customers’ funds are not deposited at the Issuing Banks in time to settle customers’ transactions with the networks that provide the infrastructure for settlement and card payment information flows, or Card Networks. Restricted cash also includes cash used to secure a letter of credit for the Company’s lease of its office headquarters in Oakland, California.
Capitalized Internal-use Software Development Costs
The Company capitalizes certain costs incurred in developing internal-use software when capitalization requirements have been met. Internal and external costs incurred in the preliminary project stage of internal-use software development are expensed as incurred. Once the software development process reaches the application development stage, qualifying internal costs including compensation and benefits costs of employees who are directly associated with and devote time to the software project as well as external direct costs are capitalized. Capitalization of costs ends when the developed software is substantially complete and ready for its intended internal use, which is typically upon completion of all substantial testing. Capitalized internal-use software development costs are included in property and equipment, net, and then amortized on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful life of the software. The amortization of these costs is recorded within depreciation and amortization expense on the condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss.
Business Combinations
The Company allocates the purchase consideration for acquired companies to tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on their estimated fair values as of the acquisition date, with the excess recorded to goodwill. These estimates are inherently uncertain and subject to refinement. During the measurement period, which may be up to one year from the acquisition date, the Company may record adjustments to the fair value of these tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed with the corresponding offset to goodwill. Upon the conclusion of the measurement period or final determination of the fair value of assets acquired or liabilities assumed, whichever comes first, any subsequent adjustments are recorded to the condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss. Acquisition-related expenses and postcombination integration and employee compensation costs are recognized separately from the business combination and are expensed as incurred.

(unaudited)
Goodwill and Acquisition-related Intangible Assets
Goodwill amounts are not amortized. Acquisition-related intangible assets with finite lives are amortized over their estimated useful lives on a straight-line basis. Goodwill and acquisition-related intangible assets are tested for impairment at least annually, and more frequently upon the occurrence of certain events.
Deferred Contract Costs
Deferred contract costs mainly consist of sales commissions and related fringe benefits that are incremental costs of obtaining contracts with customers. The Company amortizes the costs incurred on initial contracts on a straight-line basis over an estimated period of benefit determined to be approximately four years. The period of benefit is determined based on a review of customer contract terms and churn rates. The Company exercises the practical expedient to expense commissions on arrangements in which the amortization period is expected to be one year or less. Deferred contract costs that will be recognized during the succeeding 12-month period are recorded as prepaid expenses and other current assets, and the remaining portion is recorded as other assets. The amortization of these costs is recorded within compensation and benefits expenses on the condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss.

Corporate debt securities5,049(67)4,982
Total marketable securities$447,827 $47 $(7,016)$440,858 
The Company had eleven and thirteen separate marketable securities in unrealized loss positions as of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022, respectively. The Company does not intend to sell any marketable securities that have unrealized losses as of March 31, 2023, and it is not more likely than not that the Company will be required to sell such securities before any anticipated recovery of the entire amortized cost basis.
There were no realized gains or losses from marketable securities that were reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income for the three months ended March 31, 2023. For marketable securities that have unrealized losses, the Company evaluated whether (i) the Company has the intention to sell any of these investments, (ii) it is not more likely than not that the Company will be required to sell any of these available-for-sale debt securities before recovery of the entire amortized cost basis and (iii) the decline in the fair value of the investment is due to credit or non-credit related factors. Based on this evaluation, the Company determined that for its marketable securities, there were no material credit or non-credit related impairments as of March 31, 2023.
The following table summarizes the stated maturities of the Company’s marketable securities:

Corporate debt securities 4,982  4,982 
Total assets$840,461 $62,856 $ $903,317 
The Company classifies money market funds, commercial paper, U.S. government securities, U.S. agency securities, and corporate debt securities within Level 1 or Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy because the Company values these investments using quoted market prices or alternative pricing sources and models utilizing market observable inputs.
The Company determines the fair value of contingent consideration based on a probability-weighted discounted cash flow analysis. The fair value remeasurement is based on significant inputs not observable in the market and thus represents a Level 3 measurement as defined in the fair value hierarchy. In each period, the Company reassesses its current estimates of performance relative to the stated targets and adjusts the liability to fair value. Any such adjustments are included in other income (expense), net in the condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss.
There were no transfers of financial instruments between the fair value hierarchy levels during the three months ended March 31, 2023 and the year ended December 31, 2022.

The Company has a lease agreement for its corporate headquarters in Oakland, California for a total of 63,000 square feet. The non-cancellable operating lease expires in February 2026 and includes options to extend the lease term, generally at the then-market rates. The Company excludes extension options that are not reasonably certain to be exercised from its lease terms. The Company’s lease payments consist primarily of fixed rental payments for the right to use the underlying leased assets over the lease terms. The Company is responsible for operating expenses that exceed the amount of base operating expenses as defined in the original lease agreement.
The Company's operating lease costs are as follows:

Purchase Obligations
As of March 31, 2023, the Company had non-cancellable purchase commitments with certain service providers and Issuing Banks of $220.0 million, payable over the next 5 years. These purchase obligations include $204.1 million related to minimum commitments as part of a cloud-computing service agreement. The remaining obligations are related to various service providers and Issuing Banks processing fees over the fixed, non-cancellable respective contract terms.
Defined Contribution Plans
The Company maintains defined contribution plans for eligible employees, including a 401(k) plan that covers substantially all of its U.S. based employees and to which the Company provides a matching contribution of 50% of the first 6% of eligible compensation that an employee contributes. During the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022, the Company contributed a total of $2.2 million and $2.2 million to its defined contribution plans, respectively.
Legal Contingencies
From time to time in the normal course of business, the Company may be subject to various legal matters such as threatened or pending claims or proceedings. As of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022, there were no legal contingency matters, either individually or in aggregate, that would have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial position, results of operations, or cash flows. Given the unpredictable nature of legal proceedings, the Company bases its assessment on the information available at the time. As additional information becomes available, the Company reassesses the potential liability and may revise the estimate.
Settlement of Payment Transactions
Customers deposit a certain amount of pre-funding into accounts maintained at Issuing Banks to settle their payment transactions. Such pre-funding amounts may only be used to settle customers’ payment transactions and are not considered assets of the Company. As such, the funds held in customers’ accounts at Issuing Banks are not reflected on the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheets. If a customer fails to deposit sufficient funds to settle a transaction, the Company is liable to the Issuing Bank to settle the transaction and would therefore incur losses if such amounts cannot be subsequently recovered from the customer.
Indemnifications
In the ordinary course of business, the Company enters into agreements of varying scope and terms pursuant to which it agrees to indemnify customers, vendors, lessors, business partners, and other parties with respect to certain matters, including, but not limited to, losses arising out of the breach of such agreements, services to be provided by the Company or from intellectual property infringement claims made by third parties. With respect to Issuing Banks, the Company indemnifies the Issuing Bank for losses the Issuing Bank may incur for non-compliance with applicable law and regulation, if those losses resulted from the Company’s failure to perform under its program agreement with the Issuing Bank.
In addition, the Company has entered into indemnification agreements with its directors and certain officers and employees that will require the Company, among other things, to indemnify them against certain liabilities that may arise by reason of their status or service as directors, officers, or employees. No demands have been made upon the Company to provide indemnification under such agreements and there are no claims that the Company is aware of that could have a material effect on its condensed consolidated balance sheets, condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss, or condensed consolidated statements of cash flows.
The Company also includes service level commitments to its customers, warranting certain levels of performance and permitting those customers to receive credits in the event the Company fails to meet the levels specified.

8.    Stock Incentive Plans
The Company has granted share-based awards to employees, non-employee directors, and other service providers of the Company under the Amended and Restated 2011 Equity Incentive Plan (2011 Plan) and the 2021 Stock Option and Incentive Plan (2021 Plan), collectively, the Plans. The 2011 Plan was terminated in June 2021 in connection with the Company’s initial public offering, or IPO, but continues to govern the terms of outstanding awards that were granted prior to the IPO. Additionally, the Company offers an employee stock purchase plan (ESPP), which allows employees to purchase shares of common stock at 85% of the fair value of the Company’s Class A common stock on the first or last day of the offering period, whichever is lower. The offering periods are six months long and start in May and November of each year.
The following table presents the share-based compensation expense recognized in the periods presented:
Three Months Ended March 31,

A summary of the Company's RSU activity under the Plans was as follows:
Number of Restricted Stock UnitsWeighted-average grant date fair value per share
Balance as of December 31, 2022
34,146,546$9.74

As of March 31, 2023, unrecognized compensation costs related to unvested RSUs was $364.4 million. These costs are expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 3.1 years.
Stock Options
Under the Plans, the exercise price of a stock option shall not be less than the fair market value per share of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant (and not less than 110% of the fair market value per share of common stock for grants to stockholders owning more than 10% of the total combined voting power of all classes of stock of the Company, or a 10% stockholder). Options are exercisable over periods not to exceed ten years from the date of grant (five years for incentive stock options granted to 10% stockholders).

(1) Intrinsic value is calculated based on the difference between the exercise price of in-the-money-stock options and the fair value of the common stock as of the respective balance sheet dates.
(2) The 2011 Plan allows for early exercise of stock options and these balances include all exercisable stock options regardless of vesting status.
As of March 31, 2023, aggregate unrecognized compensation costs related to unvested outstanding stock options, excluding the Executive Chairman Long-Term Performance Award, was $72.2 million. These costs are expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 2.7 years.
The fair value of stock options granted was estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model and the following weighted average assumptions:
Three Months Ended March 31,
20232022
Dividend yield0.0%0.0%
Expected volatility70.78%58.62%
Expected term (in years)6.046.08
Risk-free interest rate3.78%1.99%
The fair value of the Company’s common stock is determined by the closing price, on the date of grant, of its Class A common stock, which is traded on the Nasdaq Global Select Market.
Executive Chairman Long-Term Performance Award
In April and May 2021, the Company’s board of directors granted the Company’s Executive Chairman and then-Chief Executive Officer equity incentive awards in the form of performance-based stock options covering 19,740,923 and 47,267 shares of the Company’s Class B common stock with an exercise price of $21.49 and $23.40 per share, respectively, or collectively, the Executive Chairman Long-Term Performance Award (formerly known as the CEO Long-Term Performance Award). The Executive Chairman Long-Term Performance Award vests upon the satisfaction of a service condition and the achievement of certain stock price hurdles over a seven-year performance period following the expiration of the lock-up period associated with the Company’s IPO in 2021. The stock price hurdle will be achieved if the average closing price of a share of the Company’s Class A common stock during any 90 consecutive trading day period during the performance period equals or exceeds the Company stock price hurdle set forth in the table below.

The Executive Chairman Long-Term Performance Award is divided into seven equal tranches which vest upon the achievement of the following Company stock price hurdles:
TrancheCompany Stock Price HurdleNumber of Options Eligible to Vest
1$67.502,826,884
2$78.982,826,884
3$92.402,826,884
4$108.112,826,884

6$147.992,826,884
7$173.152,826,884
Total19,788,188
The grant date fair value of the Executive Chairman Long-Term Performance Award was estimated using a Monte Carlo simulation model that incorporated multiple stock price paths and probabilities that the Company stock price hurdles are met. The weighted-average grant date fair value of the seven tranches of the Executive Chairman Long-Term Performance Award was estimated to be $10.53 per option share.
As of March 31, 2023, the aggregate unrecognized compensation cost of the Executive Chairman Long-Term Performance Award was $103.9 million, which is expected to be recognized over the remaining derived service period of 2.8 years.
9.    Stockholders’ Equity Transactions
Warrants to Purchase Common Stock
In 2021 and 2020, the Company issued warrants to customers to purchase up to 1,150,000 and 750,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, respectively. These warrants vest based on certain performance conditions that include issuing a specific percentage of new cards on the Company’s platform over a defined measurement period and reaching certain annual transaction count thresholds over the contract term, respectively. All warrants have an exercise price of $0.01 per share. These warrants are classified as equity instruments and are treated as consideration payable to a customer. The grant date fair values of these warrants are recorded as a reduction to net revenue over the term of the respective customer contract based on the expected pattern of processing volume generated by the customer and the probability of vesting conditions being met. The aggregate fair values of the warrants issued in 2021 and 2020 were $26.4 million and $5.7 million, respectively.
As of March 31, 2023, 787,304 warrants were vested. The Company recorded $2.2 million and $1.6 million as a reduction of revenue during the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022, respectively. Upon vesting, the fair values of the vested warrants are recorded into the Company’s additional paid-in capital. Timing differences caused by the pattern of processing volume generated by the customer over the term of the contract and the vesting schedules of the warrants can cause differences in the amount of grant date fair value that is credited to additional paid in capital upon vesting and the amount recorded as a reduction in net revenue during any particular reporting period.
Share Repurchase Program
On September 14, 2022, the Company’s board of directors authorized a share repurchase program of up to $100 million of the Company’s Class A common stock beginning September 15, 2022. Under the repurchase program, the Company was authorized to repurchase shares through open market purchases, in privately negotiated transactions or by other means, in accordance with applicable federal securities laws, including through trading plans under Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Exchange Act. The number of shares repurchased and the timing of purchases are based on general business and market conditions, and other factors, including legal requirements. The share repurchase program has no set expiration date.

During the three months ended March 31, 2023, the Company repurchased and subsequently retired 3.2 million shares for $21.0 million under the repurchase program, for an average price of $6.46. The total price of the shares repurchased and related transaction costs and excise taxes are reflected as a reduction to common stock and additional paid-in capital on the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheets.
As of March 31, 2023, less than $0.1 million remained available for future share repurchases under this repurchase program.
