“Our first quarter revenue exceeded expectations, growing 24% to a record $47 million. This revenue growth continues to be driven by our Enterprise business, which delivered 40% growth in LTM Enterprise subscription revenue. I am extremely pleased that we had our second best quarter ever for Enterprise bookings in the first quarter and our sales pipeline reached another all-time high. Furthermore, we continued to deliver leverage in our business model even as we accelerated hiring in a number of areas, most notably in our professional services capacity, in response to the ongoing momentum in our Enterprise bookings. In light of our first quarter results and the strength of our pipeline, we are raising our guidance for 2017.”

- 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. We calculate adjusted gross profit by adding back the following items to gross profit: depreciation, amortization, and stock-based compensation expenses. We calculate adjusted EBITDA by adding back or removing the following items to net loss: depreciation, amortization, interest expense, income tax expense, stock-based compensation expense, non-recurring litigation settlement costs, and interest and other, which consists primarily of interest income and foreign exchange gains and losses. We calculate non-GAAP operating income (loss) as operating loss excluding stock-based compensation, amortization of acquisition intangibles and non-recurring litigation settlement costs. We calculate non-GAAP net loss as net loss excluding stock-based compensation, amortization of acquisition intangibles, amortization of debt discount and issuance costs, non-recurring litigation settlement costs, and non-cash adjustments on investment. 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 factors that do not directly affect what we consider to be our core operating performance, as well as unusual events. 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 only as supplemental information for purposes of 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 set forth herein and 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 Five9’s market position, enterprise sales momentum and sales pipeline, and the second quarter 2017 and full year 2017 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) if we are unable to attract new clients or sell additional services and functionality to our existing clients, our revenue and revenue growth will be harmed; (iii) our recent rapid growth may not be indicative of our future growth, and if we continue to grow rapidly, we may fail to manage our growth effectively; (iv) failure to adequately expand our direct sales force will impede our growth; (v) if we fail to manage our technical operations infrastructure, our existing clients may experience service outages, security breaches, or other issues, our new clients may experience delays in the deployment of our solution and we could be subject to, among other things, claims for credits or damages; (vi) the markets in which we participate are highly competitive, and if we do not compete effectively, our operating results could be harmed; (vii) if our existing clients terminate their subscriptions or reduce their subscriptions and related usage, our revenues and gross margins will be harmed and we will be required to spend more money to grow our client base; (viii) we sell our solution to larger organizations that require longer sales and implementation cycles and often demand more configuration and integration services or customized features and functions that we may not offer, any of which could delay or prevent these sales and harm our growth rates, business and operating results; (ix) because a significant percentage of our revenue is derived from existing clients, downturns or upturns in new sales will not be immediately reflected in our operating results and may be difficult to discern; (x) we rely on third-party telecommunications and internet service providers to provide our clients and their customers with telecommunication services and connectivity to our cloud contact center software and any failure by these service providers to provide reliable services could subject us to, among other things, claims for credits or damages; (xi) we have a history of losses and we may be unable to achieve or sustain profitability; (xii) we may not be able to secure additional financing on favorable terms, or at all, to meet our future capital needs; and (xiii) 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 annual report on Form 10-K.
