Definitions of the non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release and reconciliations of such measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures are included below under the heading "Use and Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

CEO Greg Bentley said, "Amidst the fits and starts which characterize the global resumption of growth for infrastructure engineering in 2021, going digital has remained an overarching priority that continues to benefit our software users, infrastructure projects and assets, and our operating results. A highlight for us this quarter has been the inclusion of Seequent, and subsurface digital twins, into our company and into our new financial outlook. Somewhat restrained favorable directions continue in the preponderance of our business, with usage growth beyond the pre-pandemic levels of 2019, resulting uptrends in ARR and new business and subscription revenues, and continued upward inflections in SMB subscriptions and resulting business from new accounts. Our growth bottlenecks continue to be ever more localized to industrial and resources ‘capex,’ and to the geographies (especially Middle East and Southeast Asia) most dependent on this sector—with a new concern brought on by unanticipated subscription attrition within mid-size enterprise accounts in greater China, despite an otherwise healthy demand environment in that territory."

Mr. Bentley continued, "Our updated financial outlook for the full year 2021 contemplates surpassing the milestones of one billion-dollars in revenue (pro forma for the acquisition of Seequent as if it had occurred at the beginning of 2021), double-digit ARR growth even exclusive of Seequent, and, importantly, maintaining our 32% Adjusted EBITDA margin target for 2021 while absorbing at the same time our incremental investments in growth initiatives, our incremental public company operating costs, and our increasing pace of programmatic growth acquisitions, along with the financially material acquisition of Seequent."

Second Quarter 2021 Financial Developments:

  • On June 17, 2021, we completed the acquisition of Seequent, a leader in software for geological and geophysical modeling, geotechnical stability, and cloud services for geodata management and collaboration, for $911.0 million in cash, net of cash acquired, plus 3,141,342 shares of our Class B Common Stock. We used readily available cash, including a portion of the net proceeds from the private offering of convertible senior notes due 2026, and borrowings under our Credit Facility to fund the cash component of the transaction. For the six months ended June 30, 2021, we incurred $15.9 million of expenses related to the acquisition of Seequent. For the period from June 17, 2021 through June 30, 2021, Seequent contributed approximately $4.0 million to revenues, $0.5 million to operating income, and $90.6 million to ARR.

  • In June 2021, we completed a private offering of $575.0 million of 0.375% convertible senior notes due 2027 (the "2027 Notes"). We incurred $15.1 million of expenses in connection with the 2027 Notes offering consisting of the payment of initial purchasers’ discounts and commissions, professional fees, and other expenses ("transaction costs"). Transaction costs were recorded as a direct deduction from the related debt liability in the consolidated balance sheet and are amortized to interest expense using the effective interest method over the term of the 2027 Notes.

  • In connection with the pricing of the 2027 Notes, we entered into capped call options with certain of the initial purchasers or their respective affiliates and certain other financial institutions. The capped call options are expected to reduce potential dilution to our Class B Common Stock upon any conversion of 2027 Notes and/or offset any cash payments we are required to make in excess of the principal amount of converted notes, as the case may be, with such reduction and/or offset subject to a cap. We paid premiums of $25.9 million in connection with the capped call options and they have been included as a net reduction to Additional paid-in capital in the consolidated balance sheet.

2021 Financial Outlook:

The Company does not provide quarterly guidance, but we update our full-year financial outlook when announcing quarterly operating results to the extent expectations materially change.

Accordingly, the following update to our outlook for the year ending December 31, 2021, reflects first half performance, current business developments, and notably, the Seequent acquisition. The 2021 guidance herein is premised on COVID-19 pandemic-related business impacts generally abating gradually by year end; however, the ultimate impacts of COVID-19 on our financial outlook remain uncertain.

Initial Outlook

Updated Outlook

Total revenues

$895 – $920 million

$945 – $960 million (1)

Constant currency ARR growth rate

8% – 10%

22% – 24% (2)

Adjusted EBITDA

$285 – $295 million

$305 – $310 million

Effective tax rate

20%

<15%

_______________________

(1)

Updated total revenues outlook is net of a $10 million decrease in total revenue due to a strengthening of the US dollar relative to exchange rates in effect when the initial outlook was prepared, and approximately $5 million of Seequent-related opening balance sheet deferred revenue fair value adjustments ("haircuts").

(2)

The updated outlook for constant currency ARR growth rate includes growth of 12% to 13% from the initial inclusion and subsequent growth of Seequent, and growth of 10% to 11% from all other business.

The 2021 outlook information provided above includes Constant currency ARR growth rate, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA margin guidance, which are non-GAAP financial measures management uses in measuring performance. We are unable to reconcile these forward-looking non-GAAP measures to GAAP without unreasonable efforts because it is not possible to predict with a reasonable degree of certainty the actual impact of certain items and unanticipated events, including stock-based compensation charges, depreciation and amortization of capitalized software costs and of acquired intangible assets, realignment expenses, and other items, which would be included in GAAP results. The impact of such items and unanticipated events could be potentially significant.

The 2021 outlook is forward-looking, subject to significant business, economic, regulatory, and competitive uncertainties and contingencies, many of which are beyond the control of the Company and its management, and based upon assumptions with respect to future decisions, which are subject to change. Actual results may vary and those variations may be material. As such, our results may not fall within the ranges contained in this outlook. The Company uses these forward-looking measures to evaluate its ongoing operations and for internal planning and forecasting purposes.

Operating Results Call Details

Bentley Systems will host a live Zoom video webinar on August 10, 2021 at 8:15 a.m. Eastern time to discuss operating results for its second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2021.

Those wishing to participate should access the live Zoom video webinar of the event through a direct registration link at https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_BqaF5dY4SrG_Dcfx1k-CZA. Alternatively, the event can be accessed from the Events & Presentations page on Bentley Systems’ Investor Relations website at https://investors.bentley.com. Presentation materials will be posted prior to the webinar on Bentley Systems’ Investor Relations website. In addition, a replay and transcript will be available after the conclusion of the live event on Bentley Systems’ Investor Relations website for one year.

Definitions of Certain Key Business Metrics

Definitions of the non-GAAP financial measures used in this operating results press release and reconciliations of such measures to their nearest GAAP equivalents are included below under "Use and Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures." Certain non-GAAP measures included in our financial outlook are not being reconciled to the comparable GAAP financial measures because the GAAP measures are not accessible on a forward-looking basis. The Company is unable to reconcile these forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures without unreasonable efforts because the Company is currently unable to predict with a reasonable degree of certainty the type and extent of certain items that would be expected for these periods not to impact the non-GAAP measures, but would impact GAAP measures. Such unavailable information, which could have a significant impact on the Company’s GAAP financial results, may include stock-based compensation charges, depreciation and amortization of capitalized software costs and of acquired intangible assets, realignment expenses, and other items.

Last twelve-month recurring revenues are calculated as recurring revenues recognized over the preceding twelve-month period. We define recurring revenues as subscription revenues that recur monthly, quarterly, or annually with specific or automatic renewal clauses and professional services revenues in which the underlying contract is based on a fixed fee and contains automatic annual renewal provisions.

Constant Currency Metrics

In reporting period-over-period results, we calculate the effects of foreign currency fluctuations and constant currency information by translating current period results using prior period average foreign currency exchange rates. Our definition of constant currency may differ from other companies reporting similarly named measures, and these constant currency performance measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as a substitute for, our operating performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

  • Our last twelve-month recurring revenues dollar-based net retention rate is calculated, using the average exchange rates for the prior period, as follows: the recurring revenues for the current period, including any growth or reductions from accounts with recurring revenues in the prior period ("existing accounts"), but excluding recurring revenues from any new accounts added during the current period, divided by the total recurring revenues from all accounts during the prior period. A period is defined as any trailing twelve months. Prior to the year ended December 31, 2020, the recurring revenues dollar-based net retention rate was calculated using revenues recognized pursuant to Topic 605 for all periods in order to enhance comparability during our transition to Topic 606 as we did not have all information that was necessary to calculate account retention rate pursuant to Topic 606 for earlier periods.

  • Our last twelve-month account retention rate for any given twelve-month period is calculated using the average currency exchange rates for the prior period, as follows: the prior period recurring revenues from all accounts with recurring revenues in the current and prior period, divided by total recurring revenues from all accounts during the prior period. Prior to the year ended December 31, 2020, the account retention rate was calculated using revenues recognized pursuant to Topic 605 for all periods in order to enhance comparability during our transition to Topic 606 as we did not have all information that was necessary to calculate account retention rate pursuant to Topic 606 for earlier periods.

  • Our constant currency ARR growth rate is the growth rate of our ARR, measured on a constant currency basis. Our ARR is defined as the sum of the annualized value of our portfolio of contracts that produce recurring revenue as of the last day of the reporting period, and the annualized value of the last three months of recognized revenues for our contractually recurring consumption-based software subscriptions with consumption measurement durations of less than one year.

Use and Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to our results determined in accordance with GAAP, we have calculated adjusted cost of subscriptions and licenses, adjusted cost of services, adjusted research and development, adjusted selling and marketing, adjusted general and administrative, adjusted income from operations, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income per diluted share, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA margin, each of which are non-GAAP financial measures. We have provided tabular reconciliations of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to such measure’s most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.

Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to understand and compare operating results across accounting periods, for internal budgeting and forecasting purposes, and to evaluate financial performance and liquidity. Our non-GAAP financial measures are presented as supplemental disclosure as we believe they provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our results, prospects, and liquidity period-over-period without the impact of certain items that do not directly correlate to our operating performance and that may vary significantly from period to period for reasons unrelated to our operating performance, as well as to compare our financial results to those of other companies. Our definitions of these non-GAAP financial measures may differ from similarly titled measures presented by other companies and therefore comparability may be limited. In addition, other companies may not publish these or similar metrics. Thus, our non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, or in isolation from, the financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP, and should be read in conjunction with the financial statements included in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q to be filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC").

We calculate these non-GAAP financial measures as follows:

  • Adjusted cost of subscriptions and licenses is determined by adding back to GAAP cost of subscriptions and licenses, amortization of purchased intangibles and developed technologies, stock-based compensation, and realignment expenses, for the respective periods;

  • Adjusted cost of services is determined by adding back to GAAP cost of services, stock-based compensation, acquisition expenses, and realignment expenses, for the respective periods;

  • Adjusted research and development is determined by adding back to GAAP research and development, stock-based compensation, acquisition expenses, and realignment expenses, for the respective periods;

  • Adjusted selling and marketing is determined by adding back to GAAP selling and marketing, stock-based compensation, acquisition expenses, and realignment expenses, for the respective periods;

  • Adjusted general and administrative is determined by adding back to GAAP general and administrative, stock-based compensation, acquisition expenses, and realignment expenses, for the respective periods;

  • Adjusted income from operations is determined by adding back to GAAP operating income, amortization of purchased intangibles and developed technologies, stock-based compensation, acquisition expenses, and realignment expenses for the respective periods;

  • Adjusted Net Income is defined as net income adjusted for the following: amortization of purchased intangibles and developed technologies, stock-based compensation, acquisition expenses, realignment expenses, other non-operating income and expense (primarily foreign exchange gain (loss)), net, the tax effect of the above adjustments to net income, and loss from investment accounted for using the equity method, net of tax. The tax effect of adjustments to net income is based on the estimated marginal effective tax rates in the jurisdictions impacted by such adjustments;

  • Adjusted Net Income per diluted share is determined by dividing Adjusted Net Income by the weighted average diluted shares;

  • Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income adjusted for interest expense, net, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, acquisition expenses, realignment expenses, other non-operating income and expense (primarily foreign exchange gain (loss)), net, and loss from investment accounted for using the equity method, net of tax;

  • Adjusted EBITDA margin is determined by dividing Adjusted EBITDA by adjusted total revenues (total revenues adjusted to add back the fair value adjustment of acquired deferred revenues).

We encourage investors and others to review our financial information in its entirety, not to rely on any single financial measure, and to view these non-GAAP financial measures in conjunction with the related GAAP financial measures.
