SPS Commerce Reports Second Quarter 2016 Financial Results

MINNEAPOLIS, July 27, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SPS Commerce (NASDAQ:SPSC), a leader in retail cloud services, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016.

Revenue was $47.4 million in the second quarter of 2016, compared to $38.8 million in the second quarter of 2015, reflecting 22% growth in revenue from the second quarter 2015. Recurring revenue grew 23% from the second quarter of 2015.

Net income in the second quarter of 2016 was $352,000 or $0.02 per diluted share, compared to net income of $651,000, or $0.04 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2015. Non-GAAP net income per diluted share was $0.23, compared to non-GAAP net income per diluted share of $0.18 in the second quarter of 2015. Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2016 increased 14% to $5.7 million, compared to the second quarter of 2015.

“We delivered strong second quarter results as we continued to leverage our large network,” said Archie Black, President and CEO of SPS Commerce. “Consumers have come to expect seamless shopping experiences and fast, flawless fulfillment across multiple channels, and legacy technology and solutions that support single-channel shopping are no longer sufficient in an omnichannel world. Now more than ever before, effective trading partnerships between retailers and suppliers rely on collaboration to efficiently optimize performance and consumer engagement, and this evolution is fueling our growth.”

“In the second quarter, we continued to execute against our growth strategy by growing the number of customers as well as increasing wallet share,” said Kim Nelson, CFO of SPS Commerce. “Our new business pipeline remains robust as the retail industry increasingly adopts omnichannel strategies and we look forward to expanding our market leadership.”

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its financial statements, SPS Commerce also provides investors with Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income per share, which are non-GAAP financial measures. SPS Commerce believes that these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to its financial condition and results of operations. SPS Commerce's management uses these non-GAAP measures to compare the company's performance to that of prior periods for trend analyses and planning purposes. It uses Adjusted EBITDA for purposes of determining executive and senior management incentive compensation. These measures are also presented to the company's board of directors.

EBITDA consists of net income plus depreciation and amortization, interest expense, interest income, income tax expense and other adjustments as necessary for a fair presentation. Adjusted EBITDA consists of EBITDA plus non-cash, stock-based compensation expense. SPS Commerce uses Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of operating performance because it assists the company in comparing performance on a consistent basis, as it removes from operating results the impact of the company's capital structure. SPS Commerce believes Adjusted EBITDA is useful to an investor in evaluating the company's operating performance because it is widely used to measure a company's operating performance without regard to items such as depreciation and amortization, which can vary depending upon accounting methods and the book value of assets, and to present a meaningful measure of corporate performance exclusive of the company's capital structure and the method by which assets were acquired.

Non-GAAP net income per share consists of net income plus non-cash, stock-based compensation expense and amortization expense related to intangible assets divided by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during each period. SPS Commerce believes non-GAAP net income per share is useful to an investor because it is widely used to measure a company's operating performance.

These non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP to be recorded in the company's financial statements and are subject to inherent limitations. SPS Commerce urges investors to review the reconciliation of its non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures that are included in this press release.
