Carbonite Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2016 Financial Results

BOSTON, Feb. 09, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Carbonite, Inc. (NASDAQ:CARB), a leading provider of data protection solutions for small and midsize businesses, today announced financial results for the quarter and full year ended December 31, 2016.

Full Year 2016 Highlights:

  • Revenue of $207.0 million increased 52% year-over-year.
  • Non-GAAP revenue of $209.3 million increased 53% year-over-year.1
  • Net loss per share was ($0.15), as compared to ($0.80) in 2015.
  • Non-GAAP diluted net income per share was $0.60, as compared to $0.12 in 2015.4

“2016 was a transformative year for Carbonite. We continued to successfully execute our strategy, acquiring and developing solutions to better serve the expanding data protection needs of businesses. The acquisition of EVault early in 2016 strengthened our technology portfolio and solidified our shift to the mid-market and we continue that momentum into 2017 with our acquisition of Double-Take Software. With a significantly expanded suite of products, a unified go-to-market organization and a strong channel, we enter 2017 well positioned to capitalize on the sizeable and growing data protection market,” said Mohamad Ali, President and CEO of Carbonite.

“I am very pleased with our strong financial performance in 2016. We grew SMB to represent approximately 60% of our total bookings for the year. We drove a dramatic increase in profitability, delivering five times the non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share that we delivered in 2015. We also meaningfully exceeded our adjusted free cash flow expectations for the year. We delivered great results across the board and I am excited about our continued momentum as we start 2017,” said Anthony Folger, CFO of Carbonite.

The Company uses a variety of operational and financial metrics, including non-GAAP financial measures, to evaluate its performance and financial condition. The accompanying financial data includes additional information regarding these metrics and a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial information to GAAP. The presentation of non-GAAP financial information should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

1 Non-GAAP revenue excludes the impact of purchase accounting adjustments for the acquisition of EVault.
2 Bookings represent the aggregate dollar value of customer subscriptions and software arrangements, which may include multiple revenue elements, such as software licenses, hardware, professional services and post-contractual support, received during a period and are calculated as revenue recognized during a particular period plus the change in total deferred revenue, excluding deferred revenue recorded in connection with acquisitions, net of foreign exchange during the same period.
3 Non-GAAP gross margin excludes the impact of purchase accounting adjustments on acquired deferred revenue, amortization expense on intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense and acquisition-related expense.
4 Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share excludes the impact of purchase accounting adjustments on acquired deferred revenue, amortization expense on intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, litigation-related expense, restructuring-related expense, acquisition-related expense, hostile takeover-related expense, CEO transition expense, and the income tax effect of non-GAAP adjustments.
5 Adjusted free cash flow is calculated by subtracting the cash paid for the purchase of property and equipment and adding the payments related to corporate headquarter relocation, acquisition-related payments, hostile takeover-related payments, CEO transition payments, restructuring-related payments, litigation-related payments and the cash portion of the lease exit charge from net cash provided by operating activities.

Business Outlook

Based on the information available as of February 9, 2017, Carbonite expects the following for the first quarter and full year of 2017:

First Quarter 2017:

First Quarter
2017
GAAP revenue$51.3 - $55.3 million
Non-GAAP revenue$55.1 - $59.1 million
Non-GAAP net income per share$0.06 - $0.08

The conference call can also be accessed by dialing (877) 303-1393 in the United States or (315) 625-3228 internationally with the passcode 47867747.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, this press release contains non-GAAP financial measures, including bookings, non-GAAP revenue, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share, non-GAAP operating expense and adjusted free cash flow.

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 ordinary 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 items 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 judgments by management. The Company urges investors to review the reconciliation of its non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures provided in the tables at the end of this press release, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate the Company’s business.

With respect to our expectations under "Business Outlook" above, the Company has not reconciled non-GAAP net income per share to net income (loss) per share in this press release because we do not provide guidance for stock-based compensation expense, litigation-related expense, acquisition-related expense, amortization expense on intangible assets and the income tax effect of non-GAAP adjustments as we are unable to quantify certain of these amounts that would be required to be included in the GAAP measure without unreasonable efforts. In addition, the Company believes such reconciliations would imply a degree of precision that would be confusing or misleading to investors.

Cautionary Language Concerning Forward-Looking Statements

Certain matters discussed in this press release, including under “Business Outlook,” have "forward-looking statements" intended to qualify for the safe harbor from liability established by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements may generally be identified as such because the context of such statements will include words such as "anticipate," "believe," "could," "estimate," "expect," "intend," "may," "plan," "potential," "predict," "project," "should," "will," "would" or words of similar import. Similarly, statements that describe the Company's future plans, objectives or goals are also forward-looking statements. Such statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding guidance on our future financial results and other projections or measures of future performance; the expected future results of the acquisition of Double-Take Software, including revenues, non-GAAP EPS and growth rates; the Company’s ability to successfully integrate Double-Take Software’s business; and the Company’s expectations regarding its future performance. Forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, many of which involve factors or circumstances that are beyond the Company's control. The Company's actual results could differ materially from those stated or implied in forward-looking statements due to a number of factors, including, but not limited to, the Company's ability to profitably attract new customers and retain existing customers, the Company's dependence on the market for cloud backup services, the Company's ability to manage growth, and changes in economic or regulatory conditions or other trends affecting the Internet and the information technology industry. These and other important risk factors are discussed under the heading "Risk Factors" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), which is available on www.sec.gov, and elsewhere in any subsequent periodic or current reports filed by us with the SEC. Except as required by applicable law, we do not undertake any obligation to update our forward-looking statements to reflect future events, new information or circumstances.
