Extreme Networks Reports First Quarter Fiscal Year 2023 Financial Results

Double-Digit Growth Fueled by Cloud Subscription Results in Record Revenue

Reiterates FY23 Revenue Growth Outlook of 10-15%

MORRISVILLE, N.C., October 27, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Extreme Networks, Inc. ("Extreme") (Nasdaq: EXTR) today released financial results for its first fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2022.

Fiscal First Quarter Results:

  • Revenue $297.7 million, up 11% year-over-year, and up 7% quarter-over-quarter

  • SaaS ARR* $111.0 million, up 41% year-over-year, and up 8% quarter-over-quarter

  • GAAP diluted EPS $0.09, compared to $0.10 in Q1 last year and $0.04 last quarter

  • Non-GAAP diluted EPS $0.20, compared to $0.21 in Q1 last year and $0.15 last quarter

  • GAAP gross margin 56.0% compared to 55.4% in the prior quarter

  • Non-GAAP gross margin 57.6% compared to 57.0% in the prior quarter

  • GAAP operating margin 5.8% compared to 3.8% in the prior quarter

  • Non-GAAP operating margin 12.1% compared to 9.6% in the prior quarter

  • Net cash provided by operating activities of $49.7 million

  • Free cash flow of $46.6 million

"We delivered record quarterly revenue of $297.7 million, and SaaS ARR of $111 million. Our customers view networking as a strategic asset, and they choose Extreme because we are the best choice to drive operational efficiencies and create better outcomes for their end users. This is evidenced by this quarter’s impressive double-digit revenue growth, record revenue, and continued growth of backlog, which now sits at $555 million," said Ed Meyercord, President and CEO of Extreme.

"Extreme continues to take share in a thriving and competitive market. The flexibility and intelligence of our products like Extreme Fabric, ExtremeCloud IQ, and innovative capabilities such as Digital Twin and AIOps, are gamechangers. We make it simple to deploy and manage networks, which transforms the way our customers drive their businesses. The combination of our continued revenue growth and record backlog gives us even greater confidence in our long-term growth outlook," concluded Meyercord.

Extreme’s Chief Financial Officer Remi Thomas added, "In addition to our strong topline results, both gross and operating margins improved sequentially. Our subscription business revenue grew approximately 40% year-over-year driven by the adoption of our cloud solutions. Given another quarter of strong free cash flow, we retired $37 million of our debt, which will be accretive to earnings."

"As we look at the remainder of FY23, the continued improvement in the supply chain environment gives us further confidence in our topline growth outlook of 10-15%. We expect to cross the 60% gross margin threshold and achieve an operating margin in the mid-teens in the second half of our fiscal year," concluded Thomas.

Recent Key Highlights:

  • Extreme introduced the Extreme AP5050: the industry’s first Wi-Fi 6E Outdoor Access Point (AP) optimized for deployment in venues, convention centers, hospital and university campuses and large stadiums, among others. Specifically designed for high-density outdoor environments, the AP5050 improves mobile speed and performance and reduces interference of devices.

  • Minor League Baseball (MiLB) selected Extreme as an Official Technology Innovation Partner, supporting the testing of new stadium and in-game technologies. As part of the agreement, all of MiLB’s 120 teams will have access to Extreme’s SD-WAN solution, which will enable them to share data easily and securely, including player performance data, game review videos and other proprietary information.

  • Hana Bank, one of the largest banks in South Korea, needed to refresh its data center network so it could continue to protect sensitive customer information and ensure uninterrupted operations. Extreme’s high-capacity switches and Extreme Fabric technology will help support the mission-critical network with best-in-class network security, stability, and performance.

  • A major luxury Las Vegas casino scheduled to open in 2023, has chosen Extreme to provide critical networking infrastructure needed to support corporate IT operations, A/V requirements and connectivity for guests and staff across its 4,000 rooms, 550,000 square feet of convention space and the casino floor. Extreme will deliver a flexible, secure network that can scale to support the casino’s wide range of day-to-day needs as well as special events like business conferences, entertainment events and guest receptions.

  • Extreme helped the Ministry of Justice in France automate the deployment and management of its network, which spans hundreds of remote sites across the country, and gain better visibility into network performance across all points. The Ministry deployed end-to-end networking solutions and invested in Extreme Premier Services, significantly reducing the need for additional internal or external IT resources.

  • The San Diego Community College District, one of the largest community college districts in the U.S., was looking to scale connectivity across its campus to offer more tech-driven curriculums and support a variety of IoT devices across campus. The college deployed Extreme Wi-Fi 6 Access points and switches and is managing the entire network from ExtremeCloud IQ, reducing the need for additional IT staff and creating visibility into network performance across the entire campus.

  • Q1 ending cash balance was $198.3 million, an increase of $3.8 million from the end of Q4. This was primarily driven by operating cash flow generation of $49.7 million, partially offset by cash usage of $42.1 million for financing activities primarily for payments against our term loan and cash usage of $3.1 million for investing activities for capital expenditures.

  • Q1 accounts receivable balance was $158.7 million, a decrease of $25.4 million from the end of Q4 and an increase of $29.1 million from Q1 last year. Days sales outstanding was 49 days, a decrease of 11 days from Q4 and an increase of 4 days from Q1 last year.

  • Q1 ending inventory was $51.8 million, an increase of $2.6 million from Q4 and an increase of $19.4 million from Q1 last year. The quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year increases were primarily driven by an increase in finished goods inventory.

  • Q1 ending gross debt** was $271.5 million, a decrease of $37.1 million from the prior quarter. The $58.5 million decrease from Q1 last year resulted primarily from principal payments on our term loan. Q1 ending net debt*** was $73.2 million, a decrease of $40.9 million from $114.1 million in Q4.

Extreme uses the non-GAAP free cash flow metric as a measure of operating performance. Free cash flow represents GAAP net cash provided by operating activities, less purchases of property, plant and equipment. Extreme considers free cash flow to be useful information for management and investors regarding the amount of cash generated by the business after the purchases of property, plant and equipment, which can then be used to, among other things, invest in Extreme’s business, make strategic acquisitions, and strengthen the balance sheet. A limitation of the utility of this non-GAAP free cash flow metric as a measure of financial performance is that it does not represent the total increase or decrease in the Company's cash balance for the period. The following table shows non-GAAP free cash flow calculation (in thousands):

*SaaS ARR: Extreme uses SaaS annual recurring revenue ("SaaS ARR") to identify the annual recurring revenue of ExtremeCloud™ IQ (XIQ) and other subscription revenue, based on the annualized value of quarterly subscription revenue and term-based licenses. We believe that SaaS ARR is an important metric because it is driven by our ability to acquire new customers and to maintain and expand our relationship with existing customers. SaaS ARR should be viewed independently of revenue, deferred revenue and other U.S. GAAP accounting. SaaS ARR does not have a standardized meaning and therefore may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. SaaS ARR is not intended to be a replacement for forecasts of revenue.

**Gross Debt: Gross debt is defined as long-term and current portion of long-term debt as shown on the balance sheet plus unamortized debt issuance costs, if any.

***Net Debt is defined as gross debt minus cash, as shown in the table below (in millions):

Non-GAAP Measures of Financial Performance

To supplement the Company's consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, ("GAAP"), Extreme uses non-GAAP measures of certain components of financial performance. These non-GAAP measures include non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net income per diluted share, non-GAAP free cash flow.

Reconciliation to the nearest GAAP measure of all historical non-GAAP measures included in this press release can be found in the tables included with this press release.

Non-GAAP measures presented in this press release are not in accordance with or alternative measures prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. Non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with Extreme’s results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP measures should only be used to evaluate Extreme’s results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures.

Extreme believes these non-GAAP measures when shown in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures enhance investors' and management's overall understanding of the Company's current financial performance and the Company's prospects for the future, including cash flows available to pursue opportunities to enhance stockholder value. In addition, because Extreme has historically reported certain non-GAAP results to investors, the Company believes the inclusion of non-GAAP measures provides consistency in the Company's financial reporting.

For its internal planning process, and as discussed further below, Extreme's management uses financial statements that do not include share-based compensation expense, acquisition and integration costs, amortization of intangibles, restructuring charges, and the tax effect of non-GAAP adjustments. Extreme’s management also uses non-GAAP measures, in addition to the corresponding GAAP measures, in reviewing the Company's financial results.

As described above, Extreme excludes the following items from one or more of its non-GAAP measures when applicable.

Share-based compensation. Consists of associated expenses for stock options, restricted stock awards and the Company’s Employee Stock Purchase Plan. Extreme excludes share-based compensation expenses from its non-GAAP measures primarily because they are non-cash expenses that the Company does not believe are reflective of ongoing cash requirement related to its operating results. Extreme expects to incur share-based compensation expenses in future periods.

Acquisition and integration costs. Acquisition and integration costs consist of specified compensation charges, software charges, legal and professional fees related to the acquisition of Ipanema. Extreme excludes these expenses since they result from an event that is outside the ordinary course of continuing operations.

Amortization of intangibles. Amortization of intangibles includes the monthly amortization expense of intangible assets such as developed technology, customer relationships, trademarks and order backlog. The amortization of the developed technology and order backlog are recorded in cost of goods sold, while the amortization for the other intangibles is recorded in operating expenses. Extreme excludes these expenses since they result from an intangible asset and for which the period expense does not impact the operations of the business and are non-cash in nature.

Restructuring charges. Restructuring charges primarily consist of severance costs for employees which have no benefit to continuing operations and impairment of right-of-use assets, long-lived assets and other charges related to excess facilities. Extreme excludes restructuring expenses since they result from events that occur outside of the ordinary course of continuing operations.

Tax effect of non-GAAP adjustments. We calculate our non-GAAP provision for income taxes in accordance with the SEC guidance on non-GAAP Financial Measures Compliance and Disclosure Interpretation. We have assumed our U.S. federal and state net operating losses would have been fully consumed by the historical non-GAAP financial adjustments, eliminating the need for a full valuation allowance against our U.S. deferred tax assets which, consequently, enables our use of research and development tax credits. The non-GAAP tax provision consists of current and deferred income tax expense commensurate with the non-GAAP measure of profitability using our blended U.S. statutory tax rate of 24.2%.

Non-GAAP provision for income taxes may be higher or lower depending on the level and jurisdictional mix of pre-tax income and available U.S. research and development tax credits. As of the tax year ended June 30, 2022, we have U.S. federal net operating loss carryforwards of $184.5 million, state net operating loss carryforwards of $162.8 million and net operating loss carryforwards for the Irish holding Company of $8.9 million. These amounts will be reflected in our requisite tax filings for each jurisdiction for the tax year ended June 30, 2022. We anticipate utilization of a portion of these net operating losses in each of the jurisdiction for the tax year ended June 30, 2023; however, we do not expect to pay substantial taxes on a GAAP basis in the U.S. in the near term due to our net operating loss carryforward balances. Over the near term, most of our cash taxes will continue to be mainly driven by the tax expense of our foreign subsidiaries which amounts have not historically been significant, with the exception of the Company’s Indian subsidiary which primarily performs research and development activities, as well as the Company’s Irish operating company which fully utilized available net operating loss carryforwards during the tax year ended June 30, 2021.
