  • GAAP basic and diluted net loss per share equaled $(0.35) per common share; non-GAAP diluted earnings per share equaled $0.19 per common share

Results for the three months ended March 31, 2017

Total revenue rose to $79.7 million in the first quarter of 2017, an increase of 9% compared to $73.1 million in the first quarter of 2016.

Net loss for the first quarter of 2017 was $(10.5) million, or $(0.35) per basic and diluted common share, compared to net loss of $(1.5) million, or $(0.05) per basic and diluted common share in the first quarter of 2016.

On a non-GAAP basis, net income in the first quarter of 2017 was $6.2 million, or $0.19 per diluted common share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $11.1 million, or $0.37 per diluted common share, in the first quarter of 2016. A reconciliation of non-GAAP and GAAP results is included in the financial tables below.

Management Commentary
“We were pleased with our solid first quarter results. We made meaningful progress against our 2017 strategic objectives during the quarter. Our goals for this year are focused on making our service provider customers increasingly successful in addressing the cloud communications opportunity through a combination of product, sales and marketing-based initiatives,” said Michael Tessler, president and chief executive officer, BroadSoft. “With continued execution against our objectives, we believe that we will remain very well-positioned to take advantage of the secular trend of Unified Communications moving to the cloud.”

"We have modestly revised our revenue guidance for 2017; however, from an overall business perspective we remain very positive on our long-term market opportunity," said Jim Tholen, chief financial officer, BroadSoft. "Our guidance change is due to a reduction in our professional services and subscription and support revenue expectations. We continue to expect software growth in the 7 to 10 percent range and are maintaining our non-GAAP earnings per share guidance in the range of $2.20 to $2.50.”

Guidance

For the second quarter of 2017, BroadSoft anticipates revenue of $84 to $88 million. The Company also expects to achieve earnings on a non-GAAP basis of $0.20 to $0.32 per diluted common share. For the full year 2017, BroadSoft expects revenue of $380 to $390 million and earnings on a non-GAAP basis of $2.20 to $2.50 per diluted common share.

BroadSoft has provided in this release, and will provide on this morning’s teleconference, financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. BroadSoft uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing its financial results and believes they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating BroadSoft’s ongoing operational performance. BroadSoft’s management regularly uses these non-GAAP financial measures to understand and manage its business and believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company’s performance by excluding certain non-cash expenses, and may include additional adjustments for items that are infrequent in nature. BroadSoft believes 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 its financial results with other companies in BroadSoft’s industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures included in this release and to be discussed on this morning’s teleconference to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is set forth below.

Non-GAAP financial measures:

Non-GAAP net income and net income per share. BroadSoft defines non-GAAP net income as net income plus stock-based compensation expense, amortization expense for acquired intangible assets, non-cash interest expense on the Company’s convertible notes, foreign currency transaction gains and losses and non-cash tax expense included in the GAAP tax provision. BroadSoft defines non-GAAP income per share as non-GAAP net income divided by the weighted average shares outstanding. BroadSoft considers these non-GAAP financial measures to be useful metrics for management and investors because they exclude the effect of certain non-cash expenses so management and investors can compare BroadSoft’s core business operating results over multiple periods.

Non-GAAP gross profit, license gross profit, subscription and maintenance support gross profit, and professional services and other gross profit. BroadSoft defines non-GAAP gross profit as gross profit plus stock-based compensation expense and amortization expense for acquired intangible assets. BroadSoft considers non-GAAP gross profit to be a useful metric for management and our investors because it excludes the effect of certain non-cash expenses so management and its investors can compare BroadSoft’s sales margins over multiple periods. Where BroadSoft provides further breakdown of non-GAAP gross profit between license, subscription and maintenance support and professional services and other, the Company adds back the stock-based compensation expense and amortization expense, as applicable, to the related gross profit.

Non-GAAP cost of revenue, license cost of revenue, subscription and maintenance support cost of revenue, and professional services and other cost of revenue. BroadSoft defines non-GAAP cost of revenue as cost of revenue less stock-based compensation expense and amortization expense for acquired intangible assets. BroadSoft considers non-GAAP cost of revenue to be a useful metric for management and our investors because it excludes the effect of certain non-cash expenses so management and its investors can compare BroadSoft’s cost of revenue over multiple periods. Where BroadSoft provides further breakdown of non-GAAP cost of revenue between license, subscription and maintenance support and professional services and other, the Company subtracts the stock-based compensation expense and amortization expense, as applicable, to the related cost of revenue.

Non-GAAP income from operations. BroadSoft defines non-GAAP income from operations as income from operations plus stock-based compensation expense and amortization expense for acquired intangible assets. BroadSoft considers non-GAAP income from operations to be a useful metric for management and investors because it excludes the effect of certain non-cash expenses so management and investors can compare BroadSoft’s core business operating results over multiple periods. Where BroadSoft provides further breakdown of non-GAAP operating expenses for sales and marketing, research and development and general and administrative, the Company deducts stock-based compensation expense included in the applicable expense item.

Non-GAAP operating expenses, sales and marketing expense, research and development expense and general and administrative expense. BroadSoft defines non-GAAP operating expenses as operating expense plus stock-based compensation expense allocated to sales and marketing, research and development and general and administrative expenses. Similarly, BroadSoft defines non-GAAP sales and marketing, research and development and general and administrative expenses as the relevant GAAP measure plus stock-based compensation expense allocated to the particular expense item.

Billings. BroadSoft defines billings as revenue plus the net change in our deferred revenue balance for a particular period. BroadSoft believes that billings are a key measure of our business activity.

With respect to our expectations under “Guidance” above, and regarding certain of the projections discussed on this morning’s teleconference, reconciliation of both non-GAAP earnings per share guidance, and of projections regarding non-GAAP cost of sales and non-GAAP operating expenses in the second quarter of 2017, to the closest corresponding GAAP measures is not available without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to the high variability, complexity and low visibility with respect to the charges excluded from these non-GAAP measures, in particular, the measures and effects of non-cash income taxes, which are extremely difficult to project as a result of our tax status in a number of foreign jurisdictions, and stock-based compensation expense specific to equity compensation awards that are directly impacted by unpredictable fluctuations in our stock price. We expect the variability of the above charges to have a significant, and potentially unpredictable, impact on our future GAAP financial results.

The presentation of non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net income per share, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP income from operations, billings and other non-GAAP financial measures in this release and on this morning’s teleconference is not meant to be a substitute for “net income,” “net income per share,” “gross margin,” “income from operations” or other financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP, but rather should be evaluated in conjunction with such data. BroadSoft’s definition of “non-GAAP net income,” “non-GAAP net income per share,” “non-GAAP gross margin,” “non-GAAP income from operations,” “billings” and other non-GAAP financial measures may differ from similarly titled non-GAAP measures used by other companies and may differ from period to period. In reporting non-GAAP measures in the future, management may make other adjustments for expenses and gains it does not consider reflective of core operating performance in a particular period and may modify “non-GAAP net income,” “non-GAAP net income per share,” “non-GAAP gross margin,” “non-GAAP income from operations,” “billings” and such other non-GAAP measures by excluding these expenses and gains.

* For the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, the non-GAAP net income per diluted common share calculation included the dilutive effect of stock-based awards and for the three months ended March 31, 2017, the non-GAAP net income per diluted common share calculation included the effect of the premium feature of the convertible senior notes (which were not reflected in the corresponding GAAP diluted share calculations, as their effect would have been anti-dilutive as a result of the net losses for these periods). Total diluted weighted average common shares outstanding used for calculating non-GAAP net income per diluted common share were 31,897 thousand and 29,654 thousand for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively.
