SolarWinds Announces Second Quarter 2019 Results

AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SolarWinds Corporation (SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today reported results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2019.

On a GAAP basis, reflecting our adoption of the new standard ASC 606 effective January 1, 2019:

  • Total revenue for the second quarter of $228.7 million, representing 13.4% growth on a reported basis.

  • Total recurring revenue for the second quarter of $189.6 million, representing 15.6% growth on a reported basis. Total recurring revenue includes:

    • Maintenance revenue for the second quarter of $110.8 million, representing 12.2% growth on a reported basis.

    • Subscription revenue for the second quarter of $78.8 million, representing 20.8% growth on a reported basis.

  • Net loss for the second quarter of $2.1 million.

On a non-GAAP basis:

  • Non-GAAP total revenue for the second quarter of $230.6 million, representing 13.7% year-over-year growth and 15.4% year-over-year growth on a constant currency basis.

  • Non-GAAP total recurring revenue for the second quarter of $191.4 million, representing 15.9% year-over-year growth and 17.8% year-over-year growth on a constant currency basis. Non-GAAP total recurring revenue includes:

    • Non-GAAP maintenance revenue for the second quarter of $110.8 million, representing 11.3% growth on a reported basis.

    • Non-GAAP subscription revenue for the second quarter of $80.6 million, representing 22.9% growth on a reported basis.

  • Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of $110.9 million, representing a margin of 48.1% of non-GAAP total revenue.

For a reconciliation of our GAAP to non-GAAP results including adjustments for the impact of ASC 606, please see the tables below.

“We are very pleased with our second quarter performance. We accelerated our top- and bottom-line growth, that resulted in total non-GAAP revenue and Adjusted EBITDA results that were well above our outlook,” said Kevin Thompson, SolarWinds' President & Chief Executive Officer. “We also began to attack the opportunity we now have within the IT service management space following the close of the Samanage acquisition during the second quarter and we are excited about the additional avenue of growth this opens up for us.”

“In addition to our strong quarter of revenue growth, we expanded our Adjusted EBITDA margin despite the dilutive impact of the Samanage acquisition. We were able to drive this margin improvement while also increasing our percentage of total non-GAAP revenue coming from non-GAAP subscription revenue to 35% and our percentage of total non-GAAP recurring revenue to 83%. We believe that this reflects the power of our business model and its inherent efficiencies and leverage,”  said Bart Kalsu, SolarWinds' Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

Additional highlights for the second quarter of 2019 include:

  • SolarWinds introduced SolarWinds Service Desk (SWSD), making IT service management (ITSM) accessible to companies of all sizes through the availability of affordable and easy to use service desk software that helps them address the mounting pressures associated with digital business transformation and process automation. SWSD is based on technology acquired from Samanage during the second quarter.

  • SolarWinds announced the launch of SolarWinds Security Event Manager (SEM), a simple, powerful, and affordable SIEM solution designed to help IT security professional strengthen their security posture by providing increased visibility into cyber-security activity. SEM, which replaces SolarWinds Log & Event Manager, can be used to collect and normalize event logs generated across on-premises networks and systems into a central location, detect and protect against advanced cyber-threats, respond to cyber-incidents with unique user-defined actions, and help demonstrate regulatory and industry compliance.

  • SolarWinds announced the launch of SolarWinds Passportal suite, a unified set of password management and privileged client knowledge management tools, adding to its IT security product portfolio.

Balance Sheet

At June 30, 2019, total cash and cash equivalents were $155.3 million and total debt was $1.9 billion.

The financial results included in this press release are preliminary and pending final review by the company and its external auditors. Financial results will not be final until SolarWinds files its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the period. Information about SolarWinds' use of non-GAAP financial measures is provided below under “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”

Financial Outlook

As of August 1, 2019, SolarWinds is providing its financial outlook for the third quarter of 2019 and full year 2019. The financial information below represents forward-looking non-GAAP financial information, including an estimate of non-GAAP revenue and revenue growth on a constant currency basis, adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, for the third quarter of 2019 and for the full year 2019. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude, among other items mentioned below, stock-based compensation expense and related employer-paid payroll taxes, amortization and costs related to non-recurring items. We have not reconciled our estimates of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measure as a result of uncertainty regarding, and the potential variability of, these excluded items in future periods. Accordingly, reconciliation is not available without unreasonable effort, although it is important to note that these excluded items could be material to our results computed in accordance with GAAP in future periods. Our reported results provide reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to their nearest GAAP equivalents.

Financial Outlook for Third Quarter of 2019

SolarWinds’ management currently expects to achieve the following results for the third quarter of 2019 under ASC 606:

  • Non-GAAP total revenue in the range of $241.5 to $246.0 million, representing growth over the third quarter of 2018 non-GAAP total revenue of 13% to 15%, or 14% to 16% on a constant currency basis assuming the same average foreign currency exchange rates as those in the third quarter of 2018.

  • Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $112.0 to $113.5 million, representing approximately 46% of non-GAAP total revenue.

  • Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.19 to $0.20.

Adoption of the New Revenue Recognition Standard

Effective January 1, 2019, we adopted FASB Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) No. 2014-09 “Revenue from Contracts with Customers,” or ASC 606, using the modified retrospective method. Results for reporting periods beginning after January 1, 2019 are presented in compliance with the new revenue recognition standard ASC 606. Historical financial results for reporting periods prior to 2019 are presented in conformity with amounts previously disclosed under the prior revenue recognition standard, ASC 605 “Revenue Recognition,” or ASC 605. In the interest of comparability during the transition year to ASC 606, we present our financial results for the second quarter in accordance with both ASC 606 and ASC 605. Unless stated otherwise, year-over-year growth rates are calculated using financial results under ASC 606 for the current period and financial results under ASC 605 for the corresponding period in the prior year.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, we use certain non-GAAP financial measures to clarify and enhance our understanding, and aid in the period-to-period comparison, of our performance. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide supplemental information that is meaningful when assessing our operating performance because they exclude the impact of certain amounts that our management and board of directors do not consider part of core operating results when assessing our operational performance, allocating resources, preparing annual budgets and determining compensation. Accordingly, these non-GAAP financial measures may provide insight to investors into the motivation and decision-making of management in operating the business.

SolarWinds also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are used by investors and security analysts to (a) compare and evaluate its performance from period to period and (b) compare its performance to those of its competitors. These non-GAAP measures exclude certain items that can vary substantially from company to company depending upon their financing and accounting methods, the book value of their assets, their capital structures and the method by which their assets were acquired.

There are limitations associated with the use of these non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, do not reflect a comprehensive system of accounting and may not be completely comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies due to potential differences in the exact method of calculation between companies. Certain items that are excluded from these non-GAAP financial measures can have a material impact on operating and net income (loss).

As a result, these non-GAAP financial measures have limitations and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, the most comparable GAAP measures. SolarWinds' management and board of directors compensate for these limitations by using these non-GAAP financial measures as supplements to GAAP financial measures and by reviewing the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable GAAP financial measure. Set forth in the tables below are the corresponding GAAP financial measures for each non-GAAP financial measure presented. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable GAAP financial measures that are set forth in the tables below.

Non-GAAP Revenue. We define non-GAAP subscription revenue, non-GAAP maintenance revenue, non-GAAP license revenue, and non-GAAP total revenue as subscription revenue, maintenance revenue, license revenue, and total revenue, respectively, excluding the impact of purchase accounting primarily from our take private transaction in early 2016 and the acquisitions of LOGICnow and Samanage. The non-GAAP revenue growth rates we provide are calculated using non-GAAP revenue from the comparable prior period. We monitor these measures to assess our performance because we believe our revenue growth rates would be overstated without these adjustments. We believe presenting non-GAAP subscription revenue, non-GAAP maintenance revenue, non-GAAP license revenue and non-GAAP total revenue aids in the comparability between periods and in assessing our overall operating performance.

Non-GAAP Revenue on a Constant Currency Basis. We provide non-GAAP revenue on a constant currency basis to provide a framework for assessing our performance and expectations regarding future performance excluding the effect of foreign currency rate fluctuations. To present this information, current period results and future period estimated results for entities reporting in currencies other than U.S. Dollars are converted into U.S. Dollars at the average exchange rates in effect during the corresponding prior period presented. We believe that providing non-GAAP revenue on a constant currency basis facilitates the comparison of non-GAAP revenue to prior periods.

Non-GAAP Cost of Revenue and Non-GAAP Operating Income. We provide non-GAAP cost of revenue and non-GAAP operating income and related non-GAAP margins using non-GAAP revenue as discussed above and excluding such items as the write-down of deferred revenue related to purchase accounting, amortization of acquired intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense and related employer-paid payroll taxes, acquisition and Sponsor related costs and restructuring charges and other. Management believes these measures are useful for the following reasons:

  • Amortization of Acquired Intangible Assets. We provide non-GAAP information that excludes expenses related to purchased intangible assets associated with our acquisitions. We believe that eliminating this expense from our non-GAAP measures is useful to investors, because the amortization of acquired intangible assets can be inconsistent in amount and frequency and is significantly impacted by the timing and magnitude of our acquisition transactions, which also vary in frequency from period to period. Accordingly, we analyze the performance of our operations in each period without regard to such expenses.

  • Stock-Based Compensation Expense and Related Employer-paid Payroll Taxes. We provide non-GAAP information that excludes expenses related to stock-based compensation and related employer-paid payroll taxes. 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 as the calculations of stock-based compensation vary from period to period and company to company due to different valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of award types. Employer-paid payroll taxes on stock-based compensation is dependent on our stock price and the timing of the taxable events related to the equity awards, over which our management has little control, and does not correlate to the core operation of our business. Because of these unique characteristics of stock-based compensation and related employer-paid payroll taxes, management excludes these expenses when analyzing the organization’s business performance.

  • Acquisition and Sponsor Related Costs. We exclude certain expense items resulting from our take private transaction in early 2016 and other acquisitions, such as legal, accounting and advisory fees, changes in fair value of contingent consideration, costs related to integrating the acquired businesses, deferred compensation, severance and retention expense. We consider these adjustments, to some extent, to be unpredictable and dependent on a significant number of factors that are outside of our control. Furthermore, acquisitions result in operating expenses that would not otherwise have been incurred by us in the normal course of our organic business operations. We believe that providing these non-GAAP measures that exclude acquisition and Sponsor related costs, allows users of our financial statements to better review and understand the historical and current results of our continuing operations, and also facilitates comparisons to our historical results and results of less acquisitive peer companies, both with and without such adjustments.

  • Restructuring Charges and Other. We provide non-GAAP information that excludes restructuring charges such as severance and the estimated costs of exiting and terminating facility lease commitments, as they relate to our corporate restructuring and exit activities and charges related to the separation of employment with executives of the Company. These charges are inconsistent in amount and are significantly impacted by the timing and nature of these events. Therefore, although we may incur these types of expenses in the future, we believe that eliminating these charges for purposes of calculating the non-GAAP financial measures facilitates a more meaningful evaluation of our operating performance and comparisons to our past operating performance.

Non-GAAP Net Income (Loss) and Non-GAAP Net Income (Loss) Per Diluted Share. We believe that the use of non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per diluted share is helpful to our investors to clarify and enhance their understanding of past performance and future prospects. Non-GAAP net income (loss) is calculated as net income (loss) excluding the adjustments to non-GAAP revenue, non-GAAP cost of revenue and non-GAAP operating income, losses on extinguishment of debt, certain other non-operating gains and losses and the income tax effect of the non-GAAP exclusions. We define non-GAAP net income (loss) per diluted share as non-GAAP net income (loss) divided by the non-GAAP weighted average outstanding common shares, proforma, which is calculated as if to reflect the conversion of Class A Common Stock and shares issued for accrued dividends and shares issued at our initial public offering as if each occurred at the beginning of each respective period.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin. We regularly monitor adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin, as it is a measure we use to assess our operating performance. We define adjusted EBITDA as net income or loss, excluding the impact of purchase accounting on total revenue, amortization of acquired intangible assets and developed technology, depreciation expense, stock-based compensation expense and related employer-paid payroll taxes, restructuring and other charges, acquisition and Sponsor related costs, interest expense, net, debt extinguishment and refinancing costs, unrealized foreign currency (gains) losses, and income tax expense (benefit). We define adjusted EBITDA margin as adjusted EBITDA divided by non-GAAP revenue. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are: although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future, and adjusted EBITDA does not reflect cash capital expenditure requirements for such replacements or for new capital expenditure requirements; adjusted EBITDA excludes the impact of the write-down of deferred revenue due to purchase accounting in connection with our acquisition, and therefore includes revenue that will never be recognized under GAAP; adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs; adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the significant interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on our debt; adjusted EBITDA does not reflect tax payments that may represent a reduction in cash available to us; and other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate adjusted EBITDA differently, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Unlevered Free Cash Flow. Unlevered free cash flow is a measure of our liquidity used by management to evaluate our business prior to the impact of our capital structure, purchases of property and equipment, acquisition and Sponsor related costs, restructuring costs, employer-paid payroll taxes on stock awards and other one time items, that can be used by us for strategic opportunities and strengthening our balance sheet. However, given our debt obligations, unlevered free cash flow does not represent residual cash flow available for discretionary expenses.
