Financial Outlook:

The following outlook is based on information available as of the date of this press release and is subject to change in the future.

For the first quarter ending March 31, 2019, the Company provides the following outlook:

  • Revenue between $134.5 million and $136.5 million, representing year-over-year growth at the mid-point of 1.8%4, or 4.2%5 on a constant currency basis.
  • Subscription revenue between $127.5 million and $129.5 million, representing year-over-year growth at the mid-point of 13.6%4, or 16.0%5 on a constant currency basis.

For the year ending December 31, 2019, the Company provides the following outlook:

  • Revenue between $558 million and $568 million, representing year-over-year growth at the mid-point of 4.7%6, or 5.7%7 on a constant currency basis.
  • Subscription revenue between $533 million and $543 million, representing year-over-year growth at the mid-point of 13.7%6, or 14.7%7 on a constant currency basis.
  • Annual recurring revenue as of December 31, 2019 between $575 million and $590 million.6, 8
  • Non-GAAP operating income between $74 million and $84 million. Assuming the midpoint of the revenue range, this represents an operating margin of 14%.
  • Unlevered free cash flow between $82 million and $92 million. Assuming the midpoint of the revenue range, this represents an unlevered free cash flow margin of 15.5%.

The Company has not reconciled the guidance for non-GAAP operating income or non-GAAP operating margin to the corresponding GAAP measures because it does not provide guidance for such GAAP measures and would not be able to present the reconciling items between such GAAP and non-GAAP measures without unreasonable efforts. For non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP operating margin, the Company excludes stock-based compensation expense, which is impacted by factors that are outside of the Company’s control and can be difficult to predict. The actual amount of stock-based compensation expense in the first quarter ending March 31, 2019 and the year ending December 31, 2019 will have a significant impact on the Company’s GAAP operating margin.

Please see the discussion in the section titled “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” and the reconciliations at the end of this press release.

The acquisition of Grovo Learning, Inc during the quarter had the following impacts:

- $1.0 million adverse impact on non-GAAP operating income for the quarter and full year-ended December 31, 2018.

- $8.4 million of annual recurring revenue is included in the reported amount as of December 31, 2018. As a result of purchase price accounting rules, $5.0 million of deferred revenue related to the Grovo acquisition has been written off and will not be recognized as revenue in future periods. Prior to the write off, the deferred revenue would have been substantially recognized between the closing of the acquisition and the full year-ended December 31, 2019.

- $46.1 million of property & equipment and a corresponding facility financing obligation for build-to-suit lease agreements were recorded on the consolidated balance sheets.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Other Key Metrics

To supplement its consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, the Company has provided in this press release and the quarterly conference call held on the date hereof certain non-GAAP financial measures and other key metrics. These non-GAAP financial measures include:

        (i)   non-GAAP cost of revenue, which is defined as cost of revenue less amortization of intangible assets and stock-based compensation,
(ii) annual recurring revenue, which is defined as the annualized recurring value of all active contracts at the end of a reporting period,
(iii) unlevered free cash flow, which is defined as net cash provided by operating activities minus capital expenditures and capitalized software costs plus cash paid for interest,
(iv) unlevered free cash flow margin, which is defined as unlevered free cash flow divided by revenue,
(v) non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted net income per share, which exclude, for the periods in which they are presented, stock-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets, accretion of debt discount and amortization of debt issuance costs, unrealized fair value adjustment on strategic investment, write-off of capitalized software, restructuring costs, acquisition costs and excludes the impacts of unamortized stock-based compensation expense in applying the treasury method for determining the non-GAAP weighted average number of dilutive shares outstanding,
(vi) non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin, which exclude stock-based compensation and amortization of intangible assets reflected in cost of revenue,
(vii) non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP operating income margin, which are defined as income (loss) from operations excluding stock-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets, write-off of capitalized software, restructuring costs and acquisition costs,
(viii) non-GAAP operating expenses, which exclude stock-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets, write-off of capitalized software, restructuring costs and acquisition costs, and
(ix) non-GAAP sales and marketing expense, non-GAAP research and development expense, and non-GAAP general and administrative expense, each of which excludes stock-based compensation attributable to the corresponding GAAP financial measures.

In addition, the Company provides investors with non-GAAP financial measures under ASC 605 to compare against the Company’s GAAP financial measures under ASC 606 and discloses revenue and subscription revenue on a constant currency basis. To present amounts on a constant currency basis, current period results for entities reporting in functional currencies other than USD are translated into USD at the prior period exchange rates as opposed to the actual exchange rates in effect for the current period. The Company presents constant currency information to provide a framework for assessing how its underlying business performed excluding the effect of foreign currency fluctuations.

The Company’s management uses these non-GAAP financial measures and other key metrics internally in analyzing its financial results and believes they are useful to investors, as a supplement to the corresponding GAAP measures, in evaluating the Company’s ongoing operational performance and trends and in comparing its financial measures with other companies in the same industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures and key metrics to help investors understand the operational performance of their businesses. In addition, the Company believes that the following non-GAAP adjustments are useful to management and investors for the following reasons:

  • Stock-based compensation. The Company excludes stock-based compensation expense because it is non-cash in nature, and management believes that its exclusion provides additional insight into the Company’s operational performance and also provides a useful comparison of the Company’s operating results to prior periods and its peer companies. Additionally, determining the fair value of certain stock-based awards involves a high degree of judgment and estimation and the expense recorded may bear little resemblance to the actual value realized upon the vesting or future exercise of such awards.
  • Amortization of intangible assets. The Company excludes amortization of acquired intangible assets because the expense is a non-cash item and management believes that its exclusion provides meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company’s operational performance and allows for a useful comparison of its operating results to prior periods and its peer companies.
  • Accretion of debt discount and amortization of debt issuance costs. For GAAP purposes, the Company is required to recognize the effective interest expense on its senior convertible notes and amortize the issuance costs over the term of the notes. The difference between the effective interest expense and the contractual interest expense and the amortization expense of issuance costs are excluded from management’s assessment of the Company’s operating performance because management believes that these non-cash expenses are not indicative of ongoing operating performance. In addition, the exclusion of these items provides a useful comparison of the Company’s operating results to prior periods and its peer companies.
  • Fair value adjustment on strategic investments. The Company views the increase or decrease in the fair value of its strategic investments as not indicative of operational performance during any particular period and believes that the exclusion of these gains or losses provides investors with a supplemental view of the Company’s operational performance.
  • Write-off of capitalized software. The Company views the write-off of capitalized software as not indicative of operational performance during any particular period and believes that the exclusion of this expense provides investors with a supplemental view of the Company’s operational performance.
  • Restructuring. The Company excludes costs related to restructuring because the expense is not indicative of its continuing operations and believes that the exclusion of these costs provides investors with a supplemental view of the Company’s operational performance.
  • Acquisition costs. The Company excludes costs related to acquisitions because the expense is not indicative of its continuing operations and believes that the exclusion of these costs provides investors with a supplemental view of the Company’s operational performance.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and are not necessarily comparable to similarly-titled measures presented by other companies. For prior periods, reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures have been provided in the tables included as part of this press release.
