Business Outlook
Based on information available as of February 15, 2018, the Company is issuing guidance for the first quarter 2018 and fiscal year 2018. 

 

First Quarter 2018:  The Company expects first quarter non-GAAP revenue to be in the range of $277 million to $278 million.  The Company expects first quarter GAAP revenue to be in the range of $276 million to $277 million.  Non-GAAP revenue adds back $1 million for the impact of an acquisition accounting adjustment recorded to reduce GoTo’s deferred revenue balance to the fair value of the remaining obligation.

 

EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $110 million to $111 million, or approximately 40% of GAAP revenue.  Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $99 million to $100 million, or approximately 36% of non-GAAP revenue. 

 

Non-GAAP net income is expected to be in the range of $62 million to $63 million, or $1.17 to $1.18 per diluted share.  Non-GAAP net income adds back the non-GAAP revenue adjustment described above and excludes an estimated $18 million in stock-based compensation expense, $4 million in acquisition and litigation related costs, $59 million of amortization expense of acquired intangible assets, a $34 million pre-tax gain associated with the divestiture of a non-core asset and includes $4 million of amortization expense for GoTo’s internally capitalized software development costs that were adjusted in acquisition accounting to fair value, as well as the income tax effect of the above items.

 

Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter assumes an effective tax rate of approximately 25% and GAAP net income for the first quarter assumes an effective tax rate of approximately 33%.  Non-GAAP and GAAP net income per diluted share is based on an estimated 53.4 million fully-diluted weighted average shares outstanding. 

 

Including stock-based compensation expense, acquisition related costs, amortization expense, and excluding the purchase accounting adjustments to revenue and amortization expense, the Company expects to report GAAP net income in the range of $26 million to $27 million, or $0.50 to $0.51 per share.

 

Fiscal year 2018

 

The Company expects full year 2018 non-GAAP revenue to be in the range of $1.135 billion to $1.150 billion.  The Company expects full year 2018 GAAP revenue to be in the range of $1.132 billion to $1.147 billion.  Non-GAAP revenue adds back $3 million for the impact of an acquisition accounting adjustment recorded to reduce GoTo’s deferred revenue balance to the fair value of the remaining obligation.

 

EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $387 million to $395 million, or approximately 34% of GAAP revenue.  Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $447 million to $455 million, or approximately 39.5% of non-GAAP revenue. 

 

Non-GAAP net income is expected to be in the range of $288 million to $294 million, or $5.43 to $5.53 per diluted share.  Non-GAAP net income adds back the non-GAAP revenue adjustment described above and excludes an estimated $83 million in stock-based compensation expense, $8 million in acquisition and litigation related costs, $236 million of amortization expense of acquired intangible assets, a $34 million pre-tax gain associated with the divestiture of a non-core asset and includes $8 million of amortization expense for GoTo’s internally capitalized software development costs that were adjusted in acquisition accounting to fair value, as well as the income tax effect of the above items.

 

Non-GAAP net income for the fiscal year assumes an effective tax rate of approximately 25% and GAAP net income for the fiscal year assumes an effective tax rate of approximately 22%.  Non-GAAP and GAAP net income per diluted share is based on an estimated 53 million fully-diluted weighted average shares outstanding. 

 

Including stock-based compensation expense, acquisition related costs, amortization expense, and excluding the purchase accounting adjustments to revenue and amortization expense, the Company expects to report GAAP net income in the range of $75 million to $82 million, or $1.42 to $1.54 per share.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures including non-GAAP revenue, EBITDA, EBITDA margin, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP income before provision for income taxes, non-GAAP provision for income taxes, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net income per diluted share and adjusted cash flow from operations.

 

  • Non-GAAP revenue is GAAP revenue excluding the impact of fair value acquisition accounting adjustment on acquired GoTo’s deferred revenue.  
  • EBITDA is GAAP net income excluding provision for income taxes, interest income, interest expense, and other (expense) income, net, and depreciation and amortization. 
  • EBITDA margin is calculated by dividing EBITDA by revenue. 
  • Adjusted EBITDA is GAAP net income excluding provision for income taxes, interest income, interest expense, and other (expense) income, net, the impact of fair value acquisition accounting adjustment on acquired GoTo’s deferred revenue, depreciation and amortization, acquisition related costs, gain on divestiture of non-core assets, stock-based compensation expense, and litigation related expense.  
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin is calculated by dividing adjusted EBITDA by non-GAAP revenue, or GAAP revenue if not different.  
  • Non-GAAP operating income excludes the impact of fair value acquisition accounting adjustment on acquired GoTo’s deferred revenue, acquisition related costs and amortization, gain on divestiture of non-core assets, stock-based compensation expense, and litigation related expense and includes amortization expense for GoTo’s internally capitalized software development costs that were adjusted in acquisition accounting to fair value.
  • Non-GAAP provision for income taxes excludes the tax impact of the fair value acquisition accounting adjustment on acquired GoTo’s deferred revenue, acquisition related costs and amortization, gain on divestiture of non-core assets, stock-based compensation expense, litigation related expense, discrete integration-related tax impacts, and the tax impact related to the enactment of the U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (net tax benefit of $86 million recorded in the fourth quarter of 2017), and includes the tax impact of amortization expense for GoTo’s internally capitalized software development costs that were adjusted in acquisition accounting to fair value.
  • Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share reflects the adjustments noted in non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP provision for income taxes above.
  • Adjusted cash flow from operations excludes acquisition and litigation related payments.

 

The exclusion of certain expenses in the calculation of non-GAAP financial measures should not be construed as an inference that these costs are unusual or infrequent. We anticipate excluding these expenses in the future presentation of our non-GAAP financial measures. The Company believes that these non-GAAP measures of financial results provide useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to the Company's financial condition and results of operations. The Company's management uses these non-GAAP measures to compare the Company's performance to that of prior periods and uses these measures in financial reports prepared for management and the Company's board of directors. The Company believes 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 the Company's financial measures with other software-as-a-service companies, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. The Company does not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitation of these non-GAAP financial measures is that they exclude significant elements that are required by GAAP to be recorded in the Company's financial statements. In addition, they are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of judgment by management in determining these non-GAAP financial measures. In order to compensate for these limitations, management of the Company presents its non-GAAP financial measures in connection with its GAAP results. The Company urges investors to review the reconciliation of its non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures, which it includes in press releases announcing quarterly financial results, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate the Company's business. Reconciliation tables of the most comparable GAAP financial measures to the non-GAAP measures used in this press release are included in this release.
