ServiceSource Reports First Quarter 2017 Financial Results

 

Full Year Adjusted EBITDA Guidance Raised 25% Due to Operating Model Improvements

Expect to Become Sustainably Free Cash Flow Positive by Q4 2017

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ServiceSource® (Nasdaq: SREV), a global leader in outsourced customer success and revenue growth solutions, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017.

"In Q1, ServiceSource delivered financial results that were in line with our guidance. As we looked to the balance of the year, we conducted an extensive review of previously called-out Q1 client contractions and our strong new ACV wins in Q4 to understand full year revenue contributions. With these insights, we have made the prudent decision to reduce our full-year revenue expectations and have taken strategic actions to reset our operating model for the long term," said Christopher M. Carrington, CEO of ServiceSource. "Our go-forward model will make us a more nimble organization that is more effective and efficient in how we deliver outcomes for our clients. From a larger and growing pipeline, to bigger new logo wins, to some recent multi-million dollar expansions, we continue to see strong signs that our improved execution is translating into traction in the market and we believe our go-forward model will further accelerate this trend."

GAAP revenue was $56.7 million in the first quarter, representing a 5.1% decrease from the $59.8 million delivered in the same period in the prior year.

For the first quarter of fiscal year 2017, GAAP net loss in the quarter was $11.6 million, or $0.13 per share, compared with GAAP net loss of $9.1 million, or $0.11 per share, for the same period last year. Non-GAAP net loss in the quarter was $1.6 million compared with Non-GAAP net loss of $0.5 million for the same period last year. Non-GAAP net loss was $0.02 per basic and diluted share, compared with non-GAAP net loss of $0.01 per basic and diluted share for the same period last year. Adjusted EBITDA was a loss of $0.9 million, compared with income of $0.3 million for the same period last year.

A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures has been provided in the financial statement tables included in this press release.

With better insight into the effect of customer contractions in Q1 and slower revenue ramps from larger new ACV wins and new logo wins, ServiceSource is lowering full-year revenue expectations. In light of this new outlook, ServiceSource has implemented strategic operational changes to align more tightly to its clients, capitalize on efficiencies gained from its investments, and position itself to meet its future convertible note obligations while retaining key capabilities to grow the business.

For the second quarter of fiscal 2017, ServiceSource is providing the following guidance:

  • Revenue of $55.5 million to $58.5 million
  • GAAP gross margin of 26% to 29%; non-GAAP gross margin of 32% to 35%
  • GAAP operating expenses of approximately $23 million; non-GAAP operating expenses of $19.5 million to $20.5 million
  • GAAP net loss of $12.8 million to $14.8 million; non-GAAP net loss of $1 million to a profit of $500 thousand
  • Adjusted EBITDA between breakeven and $2 million

For the fiscal 2017, ServiceSource is providing the following guidance:

  • Revenue of $238 million to $243 million
  • GAAP gross margin of 30% to 33%; non-GAAP gross margin of 36.5% to 38.5%
  • GAAP operating expenses of $92 million to $96 million; non-GAAP operating expenses of $80 million to $84 million
  • GAAP net loss of $35.2 million to $38.2 million; non-GAAP net income of $5 million to $7 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $15 to $18 million

Please see the first quarter presentation on the Events and Presentations section of the Investor Relations web site (http://ir.servicesource.com/events) for a reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP measures in our guidance.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, ServiceSource also provides investors with non-GAAP gross profit, net income, net income per share and Adjusted EBITDA. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the closest GAAP financial measure is presented in the financial tables below under the heading, "GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation."

ServiceSource believes that the non-GAAP financial information provided in this release can assist investors in understanding and assessing its on-going core operations and prospects for the future and provides an additional tool for investors to use in comparing ServiceSource's financial results with other companies in the industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors.

Non-GAAP revenue is defined as net revenue plus revenue not recognized in the period due to the impact of purchase accounting rules related to deferred revenue acquired.

Non-GAAP gross profit consists of gross profit plus adjustments to stock-based compensation, amortization of purchased intangible assets and amortization of internally-developed software.

Non-GAAP net loss consists of net loss plus stock-based compensation, amortization of purchased intangible assets, amortization of internally-developed software, non-cash interest expense and applying an income tax rate of 40% on non-GAAP adjustments as well as the impact of normalizing the effective income tax rate. Stock-based compensation expense is expected to vary depending on the number of new grants issued, changes in the company's stock price, stock market volatility, expected option lives and risk-free rates of return, all of which are difficult to estimate.

EBITDA consists of net loss plus depreciation and amortization, interest expense, other expenses, net, and income tax expense. Adjusted EBITDA consists of EBITDA plus non-cash stock-based compensation expense. ServiceSource uses Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of operating performance because it assists the company in comparing performance on a consistent basis, as it removes from the operating results the impact of the company's capital structure.

These non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States.

Footnotes to GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation

(A) Stock-based compensation. Included in our GAAP presentation of cost of revenue and operating expenses, stock-based compensation consists of expenses for stock options and awards and purchase rights under our stock purchase plan. We exclude stock-based compensation expense from our non-GAAP measures because some investors may view it as not reflective of our core operating performance as it is a non-cash expense.

(B) Amortization of internally-developed software. Included in our GAAP presentation of cost of revenue and operating expenses, amortization of internally-developed software reflects non-cash expense for certain software purchases and software developed or obtained for internal use. We exclude these expenses from our non-GAAP measures because we believe they are not indicative of our core operating performance.

(C) Amortization of Purchased Intangibles. Included in our GAAP presentation of gross margin and operating expenses is amortization of purchased intangible assets. We believe amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, such as the amortization of the cost associated with an acquired company's research and development efforts, trade names and customer relationships, as items arising from pre-acquisition activities determined at the time of an acquisition. While these intangible assets are continually evaluated for impairment, amortization of the cost of purchased intangibles is a static expense, one that is not typically affected by operations during any particular period.

(D) Non-cash interest expense. Under GAAP, we are required to separately account for liability (debt) and equity (conversion option) components of the $150 million convertible senior notes that were issued in August 2013. Accordingly, for GAAP purposes we are required to recognize effective interest expense on our convertible senior notes which includes interest cost related to the amortization of debt issuance costs and the contractual 1.5% interest rate of the note. The difference between the effective interest expense and the contractual interest expense is excluded from our assessment of our operating performance because we believe that this non-cash expense is not indicative of ongoing operating performance. We believe that the exclusion of the non-cash interest expense provides investors a view of our core operating performance.

(E) Income tax effect on non-GAAP adjustments as well as the impact of normalizing the effective income tax rate. This adjusts (i) the provision for income taxes to reflect the effect of the non-GAAP items A, B, C and D noted above on our non-GAAP net loss; (ii) the income tax rate to a normalized effective tax rate of 40%; and (iii) non-GAAP earnings per share based on a fully-diluted share count.
