"During the fourth quarter, we achieved record revenue, realized ongoing operating leverage, and generated significant free cash flow, even after accelerating the payment of our annual cash bonuses into the quarter," said David Friend, Chairman and CEO of Carbonite.  "As we enter 2013, the company will further invest in the small business market where our recent acquisition of Zmanda has bolstered our offerings with comprehensive backup and database archiving.  While we continue to enhance our consumer value proposition, our small business offerings are experiencing faster growth, higher margins, and better retention and will be the key drivers of our growth going forward."

Recent Business Highlights:

  • Announced the appointment of Anthony Folger to the position of Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer. Folger will be responsible for financial strategy and operations. This appointment further strengthens Carbonite's management team as the company moves forward with its strategic growth initiatives.
  • Added new features to the Carbonite Business suite to better meet the backup needs of the higher education market. Based on feedback from current education customers, the new Groups and Search features will provide an institution with easier management for the cloud backups of their users and devices.
  • Ranked No. 51 on Deloitte's Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, and clean technology companies in North America.

Business Outlook

Based on information available as of February 4, 2013, Carbonite is issuing guidance for the first quarter and full year 2013 as follows:

First Quarter 2013: The Company expects total revenue for the first quarter to be in the range of $24.3 million to $24.6 million and non-GAAP net loss per common share to be in the range of ($0.17) to ($0.19). Carbonite's expectations of non-GAAP net loss per common share for the first quarter excludes amortization expense on intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, and patent litigation expense and assume a tax rate of 0% and weighted average shares outstanding of approximately 25.8 million.

Full Year 2013: The Company expects 2013 total revenue to be in the range of $104.0 million to $106.0 million and non-GAAP net loss per common share to be in the range of ($0.40) to ($0.44). Carbonite's expectations of non-GAAP net loss per common share for the full year excludes amortization expense on intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, and patent litigation expense and assumes a tax rate of 0% and weighted average shares outstanding of approximately 25.9 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures including bookings, non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per common share, and free cash flow. Bookings represent the aggregate dollar value of customer subscriptions received during a period and are calculated as revenue recognized during the period plus the change in total deferred revenue during the same period.  Non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per common share exclude amortization expenses on intangible assets, stock-based compensation expenses, a lease exit charge associated with our data center relocation, and patent litigation expenses from net loss and give effect to the conversion of preferred stock and issuance of common stock in connection with the Company's initial public offering as if both had happened at the beginning of the period. Non-GAAP free cash flow is calculated by adding the cash portion of the lease exit charge and subtracting cash paid for the purchase of property and equipment from net cash provided by operating activities. Quarterly retention rate is defined as the percentage of customers on the last day of the prior quarter who remain customers on the last day of the current quarter.

The Company believes that these non-GAAP measures of financial results provide useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to the Company's financial condition and results of operations. The Company's management uses these non-GAAP measures to compare the Company's performance to that of prior periods and uses these measures in financial reports prepared for management and the Company's board of directors. The Company believes that 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 the Company's financial measures with other software-as-a-service companies, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors.

The Company does not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitation of these non-GAAP financial measures is that they exclude significant items that are required by GAAP to be recorded in the Company's financial statements. In addition, they are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of judgments by management. In order to compensate for these limitations, management presents its non-GAAP financial measures in connection with its GAAP results. The Company urges investors to review the reconciliation of its non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures, which it includes in press releases announcing quarterly financial results, including this press release, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate the Company's business.
