SciQuest Announces Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Achieves High End of Guidance Ranges
Builds Sales Momentum for Newer Solutions
Advances Strategic Growth Initiatives

CARY, N.C., Nov. 8, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SciQuest, Inc. (Nasdaq:SQI), a leading provider of cloud-based spend management solutions, today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Stephen Wiehe, President and Chief Executive Officer of SciQuest, said, "We delivered strong third quarter financial results that were at the upper end of our guidance ranges. Demand for our spend management solutions was strong with 19 new customers signed during the quarter. The new customers were spread across all of our market verticals – commercial, higher education, state & local government and healthcare. Sales of our new accounts payable and contract lifecycle management solutions to new and existing customers contributed to our success. Moreover, we made further progress toward our strategic growth initiatives with our acquisitions of Spend Radar and Upside Software. We believe that healthy interest from customers and prospects across our expanding portfolio of spend management solutions reinforces our leadership position in the marketplace and positions us for continued growth."

Third Quarter 2012 Results

SciQuest reported GAAP revenue of $17.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. GAAP revenue in the third quarter of 2011 was $13.8 million.

GAAP loss from operations in the third quarter of 2012 was $0.1 million compared to GAAP income from operations of $1.5 million in the third quarter of 2011. GAAP net income was $0.7 million in the third quarter of 2012, which compares to GAAP net income of $0.8 million in the same quarter in the prior year. The primary drivers of these changes were the expected impact of the Upside Software acquisition and increased stock-based compensation.

GAAP diluted earnings per share was $0.03 in the third quarter of 2012 based on 22.7 million average diluted shares outstanding. Based on 22.6 million average diluted shares outstanding, GAAP diluted earnings per share in the third quarter of 2011 was $0.03.

Non-GAAP revenue(1) in the third quarter of 2012 was $17.6 million.

Non-GAAP income from operations(2) was $2.3 million and non-GAAP net income(3) was $1.4 million in the third quarter of 2012. In the third quarter of 2011 non-GAAP income from operations(2) and non-GAAP net income(3) were $2.9 million and $1.8 million, respectively. The primary driver of these changes was the expected impact of the Upside Software acquisition.

Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share(3) was $0.06 in the third quarter of 2012 based on 22.7 million average diluted shares outstanding. Based on 22.6 million average diluted shares outstanding, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share(3) in the third quarter of 2011 was $0.08.

Results from Upside Software are included in SciQuest's results on and after the date it was acquired, August 1, 2012.

A reconciliation of the most comparable GAAP financial measure to the non-GAAP measures used above is included in the financial tables at the end of this release.

Business Outlook

Based on the Company's strong third quarter performance and the impact of recent acquisitions, SciQuest is issuing the following guidance:

Fourth quarter 2012

  • GAAP revenue to be between $19.3 million and $19.7 million.
  • GAAP basic loss per share to be between $0.11 and $0.12.
  • Basic weighted average shares outstanding to be approximately 22.4 million.
  • Non-GAAP revenue(1) to be between $20.1 million and $20.5 million.
  • Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share(3) to be between $0.05 and $0.06, including approximately $0.01 of dilution from the Spend Radar acquisition.
  • Diluted weighted average shares outstanding to be approximately 22.8 million.

Full Year 2012

  • GAAP revenue to be between $66.1 million and $66.5 million.
  • GAAP basic loss per share to be between $0.05 and $0.06.
  • Basic weighted average shares outstanding to be approximately 22.3 million.
  • Net cash provided by operating activities to be between $20.3 million and $21.3 million.
  • Non-GAAP revenue(1) to be between $67.3 million and $67.7 million.
  • Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share(3) to be between $0.22 and $0.23.
  • Diluted weighted average shares outstanding to be approximately 22.7 million.
  • Adjusted free cash flow(4) to be between $16.0 million and $17.0 million.

Results from Upside Software and Spend Radar are included in SciQuest's results on and after the date they were acquired, August 1, 2012 and October 1, 2012, respectively.

The main drivers of the fourth quarter and full year GAAP guidance for net loss are the result of specific GAAP accounting rules related to acquisition costs, the impact of purchase accounting on recent acquisitions and the related income tax effects.

A reconciliation of the most comparable GAAP financial measure to the non-GAAP measures used above is included with the financial tables at the end of this release.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

SciQuest provides all information required in accordance with GAAP, but believes evaluating its ongoing operating results may not be as useful if an investor is limited to reviewing only GAAP financial measures. Accordingly, SciQuest presents non-GAAP financial measures in reporting its financial results to provide investors with additional tools to evaluate SciQuest's operating results in a manner that focuses on what SciQuest believes to be its ongoing business operations and what SciQuest uses to evaluate its ongoing operations and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. SciQuest's management does not itself, nor does it suggest that investors should, consider such non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. SciQuest's management believes it is useful for itself and investors to review, as applicable, both GAAP information that includes: (i) the amortization of acquired intangible assets; (ii) the impact of stock-based compensation; (iii) other significant items, such as acquisition related expenses; (iv) the income tax effect of non-GAAP pre-tax adjustments from the provision for income taxes; and (v) the purchase accounting impact on deferred revenue; and the non-GAAP measures that exclude such information in order to assess the performance of SciQuest's business and for planning and forecasting in subsequent periods. Whenever SciQuest uses such a non-GAAP financial measure, it provides a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure to the most closely applicable GAAP financial measure to the extent possible. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure as detailed herein.
