SciQuest Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2013 Financial Results

Posted Strong Quarterly and Annual Results

Attained 2013 Priorities

Generated Significant Growth in Commercial Market

CARY, N.C., Feb. 6, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SciQuest, Inc. (Nasdaq:SQI), a leading provider of cloud-based business automation solutions for spend management, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2013.

"2013 was an important year of execution that accelerated our transformation from a niche eProcurement solutions company to the leading provider of cloud-based spend management solutions. In the fourth quarter, we extended our track record of rapid growth. We increased non-GAAP revenues by 26% from a year ago, excluding a settlement fee we received. On this same basis, full-year revenue increased 37%. Strong non-GAAP revenue helped to generate non-GAAP net income per share that exceeded our guidance ranges. In addition, adjusted free cash flow beat expectations," said Stephen Wiehe, President and Chief Executive Officer of SciQuest. "Success was fueled by a combination of robust customer additions, solid cross-selling and the transformation of our sales organization that enhanced the team's people, processes and structure. We are particularly encouraged by the strong contribution from the commercial market, which complemented continued growth in other market segments. On the financial front, we are beginning to drive leverage from the operations we acquired in the second half of 2012. We also substantially completed operational integration of CombineNet.

"Looking ahead, we plan to leverage our successes and continue executing on the strategy that drove our performance in 2013: attract new customers, increase cross-selling, enhance and expand the solution suite and improve operational and financial efficiency, particularly at acquired entities. Our 2013 accomplishments and ongoing improvement efforts are expected to enable us to achieve our long-term targets of 20% non-GAAP revenue growth and 20% non-GAAP operating margins."

Fourth Quarter 2013 Results

SciQuest reported GAAP revenues of $25.8 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 compared to $19.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.

GAAP loss from operations in the fourth quarter of 2013 was $1.0 million compared to GAAP loss from operations of $2.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. GAAP net loss was $1.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 compared to GAAP net loss of $2.4 million in the same quarter in the prior year. The primary drivers of the fourth quarter 2013 losses were the expected impacts of acquisition related costs and stock-based compensation.

GAAP basic net loss per share was $0.05 in the fourth quarter of 2013 based on 23.8 million weighted average basic shares outstanding. GAAP diluted net loss per share in the fourth quarter of 2012 was $0.11 based on 22.4 million weighted average basic shares outstanding.

Non-GAAP revenue(1) in the fourth quarter was $26.7 million. Excluding the additional revenue generated by a settlement fee that we received from a former customer, non-GAAP revenues(1) would have been $26.2 million, an increase of 26% from the prior year.

Non-GAAP income from operations(2) in the fourth quarter of 2013 was $4.4 million compared to non-GAAP income from operations(2) of $2.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Non-GAAP diluted net income per share(3) was $0.11 in the fourth quarter of 2013 based on 24.3 million weighted average diluted shares outstanding. Excluding the additional revenue generated by the settlement fee, non-GAAP diluted net income per share(3) in the quarter would have been $0.10. Based on 22.8 million weighted average diluted shares outstanding, non-GAAP diluted net income per share(3) in the fourth quarter of 2012 was $0.07.

Full Year 2013 Results

On a full year basis, GAAP revenues were $90.2 million in 2013 compared to $66.5 million in 2012. GAAP loss from operations was $5.1 million in 2013 compared to GAAP loss from operations of $1.1 million in 2012. GAAP net loss was $4.7 million in 2013 and GAAP basic net loss per share during the year was $0.21 based on 23.0 million weighted average basic shares outstanding. In 2012, GAAP net loss was $1.2 million and GAAP basic net loss per share was $0.05 based on 22.3 weighted average basic shares outstanding. The primary drivers of these losses were the expected impacts of acquisition related costs and stock-based compensation.

Non-GAAP revenues(1) in 2013 were $93.6 million. Excluding additional revenue generated by a settlement fee that we received from a former customer, non-GAAP revenues(1) would have been $93.1 million, up 37% from 2012.

Non-GAAP income from operations(2) was $14.5 million in 2013 compared to non-GAAP income from operations(2) of $8.9 million in 2012. Non-GAAP net income(3) was $8.8 million in 2013 compared to non-GAAP net income(3) of $5.5 million in 2012.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

SciQuest provides all information required in accordance with GAAP, but believes evaluating its ongoing operating results may not be as useful if an investor is limited to reviewing only GAAP financial measures. Accordingly, SciQuest presents non-GAAP financial measures in reporting its financial results to provide investors with additional tools to evaluate SciQuest's operating results in a manner that focuses on what SciQuest believes to be its ongoing business operations and what SciQuest uses to evaluate its ongoing operations and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. SciQuest's management does not itself, nor does it suggest that investors should, consider such non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. SciQuest's management believes it is useful for itself and investors to review, as applicable, both GAAP information that includes: (i) the amortization of acquired intangible assets; (ii) the impact of stock-based compensation; (iii) other significant items, such as acquisition related expenses; (iv) the purchase accounting impact on deferred revenue; and (v) the beneficial income tax effect of these items; and the non-GAAP measures that exclude such information in order to assess the performance of SciQuest's business and for planning and forecasting in subsequent periods. Whenever SciQuest uses such a non-GAAP financial measure, it provides a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure to the most closely applicable GAAP financial measure to the extent possible. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure as detailed herein.
