Model N Announces Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2020 Financial Results

·23 min read

Model N, Inc. (NYSE: MODN), the leading provider of cloud revenue management solutions for life sciences and high tech companies, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2020 ended September 30, 2020.

"As we announced in October, our fourth quarter results exceeded our guidance across all key metrics which resulted in another quarter of profitable growth and a strong finish to the year. I am proud of how our team performed in fiscal year 2020, particularly in this challenging macroenvironment," said Jason Blessing, president and chief executive officer of Model N. "In the fourth quarter, we continued to see our go-to-market strategy work as designed as we added new customers, expanded within our existing customer base and signed additional SaaS transition deals, resulting in the highest quarterly deal volume in our company’s history. Our customer wins ranged from enterprise companies to some of the largest enterprises in the world in both Life Sciences and High Tech. As the pandemic continues to impact our customers, the value of our products is evident to customers of all sizes and from each vertical, and we expect them to continue to view us as a top IT investment priority for fiscal year 2021."

Recent Highlights

  • Global Pharmaceutical Customers Select Model N Revenue Cloud – During the fourth quarter, several new customers selected Model N as their provider of revenue management solutions. Top, global pharmaceutical company and long-time customer, Merck & Co., selected the full suite of Model N Revenue Cloud products for the spin-off of Organon & Co., its women’s health, trusted legacy brands, and biosimilars businesses. Also during the quarter, Octapharma, one of the largest human protein products manufacturers in the world, chose Model N to support its commitment to patient care and medical innovation, including its development of plasma-derived blood product therapies to combat COVID-19. We believe that organizations choose Revenue Cloud because it offers enhanced efficiency, increased visibility, and improved transparency in reporting.

  • Life Sciences Customers’ Go-lives Provide Rapid Time-to-Value and Increased Return-on-Investment – In the fourth quarter, several Model N customers went live on Model N Revenue Cloud. Global specialty pharmaceutical company, Mallinckrodt, continued its product roll-out, going live in its brands division. Working closely with Model N’s professional services team, the go-live was Model N’s fastest SaaS transition to date. Also during the quarter, Servier Monde went live with additional Global Pricing Management functionality. This implementation provides the customer with state-of-the-art competitor pricing dashboards which will allow for quicker, more informed decision-making. Influenza vaccine manufacturer, Seqirus USA, also went live after choosing Model N Revenue Cloud earlier in our fiscal year 2020. Revenue Cloud will allow the customer to scale by automating its booking processes and to work seamlessly with its distributors. With quicker access to richer business intelligence due to improved implementation time, Model N customers are able to achieve faster time-to-value and increased return-on-investment.

  • Top Semiconductor Company and Long-time High-Tech Customer Expands its Model N Footprint - In the fourth quarter, long-time Channel Data Management customer, Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), went live with Model N’s full suite of cloud solutions, tightly integrating its channel data into its front and back office systems. By expanding Model N’s product footprint, AMD expects to be able to improve its quoting, pricing, and rebating activities as well as to gain more actionable intelligence into its channel.

  • Revenue Cloud Fall ’20 Release for High Tech Provides an End-to-End Solution for Deal Optimization that Utilizes Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML) – With its new release, Model N addresses customer revenue management challenges by extending its AI/ML capabilities in Revenue Cloud and allowing customers to fine-tune their pricing decisions based on channel and customer pricing data.

This press release contains forward-looking statements including, among other things, statements regarding Model N’s first quarter and full year fiscal 2021 financial results, the impact COVID-19 will have on our business, Model N’s profitability, future planned enhancements to our products and benefits from our products. The words "believe," "may," "will," "estimate," "continue," "anticipate," "intend," "expect," and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties, and assumptions. If the risks materialize or assumptions prove incorrect, actual results could differ materially from the results implied by these forward-looking statements. Risks include, but are not limited to: (i) delays in closing customer contracts; (ii) our ability to improve and sustain our sales execution; (iii) the timing of new orders and the associated revenue recognition; (iv) adverse changes in general economic or market conditions; (v) delays or reductions in information technology spending and resulting variability in customer orders from quarter to quarter; (vi) competitive factors, including but not limited to pricing pressures, industry consolidation, entry of new competitors and new applications and marketing initiatives by our competitors; (vii) our ability to manage our growth effectively; (viii) acceptance of our applications and services by customers; (ix) success of new products; (x) the risk that the strategic initiatives that we may pursue will not result in significant future revenues; (xi) changes in health care regulation and policy and tax in the United States and worldwide; (xii) our ability to retain customers; and (xiii) adverse impacts on our business and financial condition due to COVID-19. Further information on risks that could affect Model N’s results is included in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), including our most recent quarterly report on Form 10-Q and our annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2019, and any current reports on Form 8-K that we may file from time to time. Should any of these risks or uncertainties materialize, actual results could differ materially from expectations. Model N assumes no obligation to, and does not currently intend to, update any such forward-looking statements after the date of this release.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We have provided in this release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with accounting standards generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). We use these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing our financial results and believe they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating our ongoing operational performance. We believe that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends, and in comparing our financial results with other companies in our industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors.

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 financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures below. A reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures has been provided in the financial statement tables included below in this press release.

Our reported results include certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP subscription gross profit, non-GAAP subscription gross margin, non-GAAP income (loss) from operations, non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss) per share, and adjusted EBITDA. Non-GAAP gross profit excludes stock-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets, and deferred revenue adjustments as they are often excluded by other companies to help investors understand the operational performance of their business. Non-GAAP income (loss) from operations excludes stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, and deferred revenue adjustments. Non-GAAP net income (loss) excludes stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, amortization of debt discount and issuance costs, and deferred revenue adjustments. Additionally, stock-based compensation expense varies from period to period and from company to company due to such things as valuation methodologies and changes in stock price. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net loss, adjusted for depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, acquisition & integration related expenses, deferred revenue adjustment, interest (income) expense, net, other (income) expenses, net, and provision for (benefit from) income taxes. Reconciliation tables are provided in this press release.

We have not reconciled guidance for non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures because certain items that impact these measures are uncertain, out of our control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted or estimated, such as the difficulties of estimating certain items such as charges to stock-based compensation expense. Accordingly, a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure guidance to the corresponding GAAP measures is not available without unreasonable effort.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, we use non-GAAP measures of adjusted EBITDA, gross profit, gross margin, income from operations, net income, weighted average shares outstanding and net income per share, which are adjusted to exclude stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, and amortization of debt discount and issuance costs and include dilutive shares where applicable. We believe these adjustments are appropriate to enhance an overall understanding of our past financial performance and also our prospects for the future. These adjustments to our current period GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of our underlying operating results and trends and our marketplace performance. The non-GAAP results are an indication of our baseline performance that are considered by management for the purpose of making operational decisions. In addition, these non-GAAP results are the primary indicators management uses as a basis for our planning and forecasting of future periods. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for operating income (loss), net loss or basic and diluted net loss per share prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. Non-GAAP financial measures are not based on a comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and are subject to limitations.

While a large component of our expenses incurred in certain periods, we believe investors may want to exclude the effects of these items in order to compare our financial performance with that of other companies and between time periods:

(a)

Stock-based compensation is a non-cash expense accounted for in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718. We believe that the exclusion of stock-based compensation expense provides for a better comparison of our operating results to prior periods and to our peer companies.

(b)

Amortization of intangible assets resulted principally from acquisitions. Intangible asset amortization is a non-cash item. As such, we believe exclusion of these expenses provides for a better comparison of our operating results to prior periods and to our peer companies.

(c)

Amortization of debt discount and issuance costs. Amortization of debt discount and issuance costs is a non-cash item. As such, we believe exclusion of these expenses provides for a better comparison of our operating results to prior periods and to our peer companies. Fiscal year 2019 has been revised to exclude the amortization of debt discounts and issuance costs related to our term loan and promissory note to better provide consistency between the periods.
