Five9 Revenue Growth Accelerates to 28% and Adjusted EBITDA Margin Improves to 6% in the Second Quarter of 2016

LTM Enterprise Subscription Revenue Growth Accelerates to 41%

Raises 2016 Guidance for Revenue and Bottom Line

SAN RAMON, Calif., Aug. 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Five9, Inc. (NASDAQ:FIVN), a leading provider of cloud software for the enterprise contact center market, today reported results for the second quarter 2016 ended June 30, 2016.

Q2 Business Highlights

  • All-time records for both enterprise bookings and commercial bookings
  • Total revenue increased 28% year-over-year to a record $38.9 million
  • LTM enterprise subscription revenue grew 41% year-over-year
  • LTM enterprise revenue increased to 67% of total revenue, up from 62% in the year ago period
  • Annual dollar-based retention rate was 100%, up from 94% in the year ago period
  • Operating cash flow was $2.2 million, up by $6.2 million year-over-year

“Our second quarter results were truly outstanding with further acceleration on the top line driven by LTM enterprise subscription revenue growth of 41%. Furthermore, we continued to enjoy exceptional leverage in our business model resulting in record adjusted EBITDA. Since our IPO eight quarters ago, our adjusted EBITDA margins have increased by nearly 34 percentage points. I am also extremely pleased that our bookings and pipeline reached new highs. Our results continued to be driven by strong enterprise gains, which deliver high marginal profitability. We are still in the early days of a massive push towards modernization of customer service and contact center technologies, including both CRM and contact center infrastructure. Given our strong position in this market and the momentum in our business, we are raising 2016 guidance.”

- Mike Burkland, President and CEO, Five9

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to disclosing financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this press release and the accompanying tables contain certain non-GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP financial measures do not have any standardized meaning and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. Five9 considers these non-GAAP financial measures to be important because they provide useful measures of the operating performance of the company, exclusive of unusual events, as well as factors that do not directly affect what we consider to be our core operating performance. The company’s management uses these measures to (i) illustrate underlying trends in the company’s business that could otherwise be masked by the effect of income or expenses that are excluded from non-GAAP measures, and (ii) establish budgets and operational goals for managing the company’s business and evaluating its performance. In addition, investors often use similar measures to evaluate the operating performance of a company. Non-GAAP financial measures are presented for supplemental informational purposes only for understanding the company's operating results. The non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with GAAP. Please see the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure attached to this release.

Forward Looking Statements

This news release contains certain forward-looking statements, including the statements in the quote from our Chief Executive Officer, including statements regarding the enterprise shift to the cloud for CRM and contact center solutions and Five9’s market position, increasing demand for Five9’s solutions, and the third quarter 2016 and full year 2016 financial projections set forth under the caption “Business Outlook,” that are based on our current expectations and involve numerous risks and uncertainties that may cause these forward-looking statements to be inaccurate. Risks that may cause these forward-looking statements to be inaccurate include, among others: (i) our quarterly and annual results may fluctuate significantly, may not fully reflect the underlying performance of our business and may result in decreases in the price of our common stock; (ii) we may be unable to attract new clients or sell additional services and functionality to our existing clients or could experience a reduction in seats or revenues from existing clients; (iii) our recent rapid growth may not be indicative of our future growth and we may fail to manage our growth effectively; (iv) the markets in which we participate are highly competitive and we may be unable to compete effectively; (v) we may be unable to manage our technical operations infrastructure, which could cause our existing clients to experience service outages, cause our new clients to experience delays in the deployment of our solution and subject us to, among other things, claims for credits or damages; (vi) a decline in our dollar-based retention rate could cause our revenues and gross margins to decrease and our net loss to increase and we may be required to spend more money to grow our client base to maintain our revenues; (vii) sales of our solutions to larger organizations may require longer sales and implementation cycles and we may be unable to offer the configuration and integration services or customized features and functions required by larger organizations, which could delay or prevent sales of our solution to them; (viii) downturns or upturns in new sales will not be immediately reflected in our operating results and may be difficult to discern; (ix) third-party telecommunications and internet service providers on which we rely may fail to provide our clients and their customers with reliable telecommunication services and connectivity to our cloud contact center software; (x) we may be unable to achieve or sustain profitability; (xi) we may be unable to secure additional financing on favorable terms, or at all, to meet our future capital needs; and (xii) the other risks detailed from time-to-time under the caption “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in our Securities and Exchange Commission filings and reports, including, but not limited to, our most recent quarterly report on Form 10-Q.
