Fourth quarter 2015 financial results

Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2015 grew over 9 percent to $109.5 million, compared with $100.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2014. 

Non-GAAP adjusted net income for the fourth quarter was $24.9 million, or $0.47 per diluted ordinary share.  This compares with non-GAAP adjusted net income of $16.2 million, or $0.31 per diluted ordinary share for the same period of the prior year.1 GAAP net income for the fourth quarter was $20.6 million, or $0.38 per diluted ordinary share.  This compares with net income of $4.6 million, or $0.08 per diluted ordinary share in the prior year's fourth quarter.

Non-GAAP adjusted operating income was $32.5 million, compared with $22.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2014. GAAP operating income was $25.6 million, compared with $10.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2014.  Operating cash flow was $30.2 million for the quarter, compared with $35.2 million for the fourth quarter last year.  Free cash flow was $25.8 million for the quarter, compared with $27.7 million for the same period in the prior year. 

Fiscal year 2015 financial results

Revenue for 2015 was $428.3 million, compared with $374.1 million for the fiscal year 2014, an increase of 14 percent.

Non-GAAP adjusted net income for 2015 was $95.7 million, or $1.81 per diluted ordinary share.  This compares with non-GAAP adjusted net income of $100.4 million, or $1.91 per diluted ordinary share for fiscal year 2014.

GAAP net income for fiscal year 2015 was $48.9 million, or $0.89 per diluted ordinary share, based on 52.8 million weighted-average diluted ordinary shares outstanding.  This compares with net income of $54.4 million, or $1.02 per diluted ordinary share, based on 52.6 million weighted-average diluted ordinary shares outstanding for fiscal year 2014.

Non-GAAP adjusted operating income was $124.9 million, compared with $120.1 million for fiscal year 2014. GAAP operating income was $74.9 million, compared with $79.3 million for fiscal year 2014. 

During 2015, the company repurchased 0.7 million shares at a total cost of $13.6 million under its share repurchase program, which was approved in 2015.

"The strong results for the fourth quarter and full-year 2015 provide evidence that the transformation we initiated in 2013 is substantially reducing our dependence on search, while building a diversified and sustainable revenue stream from new and emerging online security markets," said Gary Kovacs, the company's chief executive officer.  "At that time, search revenue comprised nearly 40 percent of total revenues, compared to 18 percent in 2015, and I am pleased to report that throughout this period we've managed to be at or near our target adjusted operating margin of 30 percent.  We have continued to optimize our core consumer businesses for strong cash flow, which has enabled investments in new product development as well as a now proven acquisition strategy. More recently, the user migration to ZEN, our cross-platform, multi-device software, continued to exceed our expectations growing to 47 million, up from 17 million at the end of last quarter.  Looking at 2016, we believe ZEN will be a key component of our strategy by ultimately integrating all of our products and services and delivering simple, easy-to-use offerings that protect anyone, anywhere they go online."

Financial Outlook

Based on information available as of February 24, 2016, AVG is providing the following outlook for fiscal year 2016 as follows:

  • Revenue outlook is reconfirmed to be in the range of $440 million to $460 million.
  • Non-GAAP adjusted net income is expected to be in the range of $100 million to $104 million; non-GAAP adjusted net income per diluted ordinary share is expected to be in the range of $1.90 to $1.96.
  • GAAP net income is expected to be in the range of $43 million to $49 million; GAAP net income per diluted ordinary share is expected to be in the range of $0.81 to $0.93.

AVG's expectation of non-GAAP adjusted net income for fiscal year 2016 excludes share-based compensation expense, acquisition amortization and certain other adjustments, and assumes a normalized tax rate of 12.5 percent.  For the purpose of calculating GAAP net income per diluted ordinary share and non-GAAP adjusted net income per diluted ordinary share, the Company assumes approximately 53 million weighted-average diluted ordinary shares outstanding for the full year.

The financial information presented in this press release is neither audited nor reviewed.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release contains supplemental non-GAAP financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP.  These non-GAAP measures provide additional information on the performance or liquidity of our business that we believe are useful for investors.

Adjusted net income, free cash flow and their related ratios are non-GAAP measures and should not be considered alternatives to the applicable U.S. GAAP measures.  In particular, adjusted net income and free cash flow, and their related ratios, should not be considered as measurements of our financial performance or liquidity under U.S. GAAP, as alternatives to income, operating income or any other performance measures derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP or as alternatives to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of our liquidity.

Adjusted net income and free cash flow are measures of financial performance and liquidity, respectively, and have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation from, or as substitutes for, an analysis of our results of operations, including our operating income and cash flows, as reported under U.S. GAAP.  We provide these non-GAAP financial measures because we believe that such measures provide important supplemental information to management and investors about the Company's core operating results and liquidity, primarily because the non-GAAP financial measures exclude certain expenses and other amounts that management does not consider to be indicative of the Company's core operating results or business outlook or liquidity.  Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures, in addition to the corresponding U.S. GAAP financial measures, in evaluating the Company's operating performance, in planning and forecasting future periods, in making decisions regarding business operations and allocation of resources, and in comparing the Company's performance against its historical performance.  Some of the limitations of adjusted net income and free cash flow and their related ratios as measures are:

  • they do not reflect our cash expenditure or future requirements for capital expenditure or contractual commitments, nor do they reflect the actual cash contributions received from customers;
  • they do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
  • although amortization and share-based compensation are non-cash charges, the assets being amortized will often have to be replaced in the future and such measures do not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements; and
  • other companies in our industry may calculate these measures differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.

Because of these limitations, investors should rely on AVG's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP and treat the Company's non-GAAP financial measures as supplemental information only.

For a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, please see "Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures."  All non-GAAP financial measures should be read in conjunction with the comparable information presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
