30 Oct, 2013, 16:05 ET from Carbonite, Inc.

BOSTON, Oct. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Carbonite, Inc. (NASDAQ: CARB), a leading provider of cloud solutions that keep small businesses and home offices running smoothly, today announced financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2013.

Highlights:

  • On July 23, Carbonite announced Enhanced Server Backup, a new product designed to bring enterprise-class database server backup capabilities to the small business market. Enhanced Server Backup is a fully integrated hybrid solution that backs up the Windows System State. A server can be restored in its entirety with backup rates reaching approximate speeds in excess of one gigabit per second.
  • On July 29, Carbonite announced the beta release of its business continuity appliance which creates complete server backup images on local backup for speed, and cloud backup for ultimate safety when primary equipment fails.
  • On August 7, Carbonite signed an agreement with Tech Data, a technology wholesaler with more than 120,000 resellers worldwide, to offer Carbonite's suite of cloud data protection solutions through Tech Data's TDCloud business unit.

"The continued strong performance of our SMB product line, up roughly 80% year over year in Q3, shows that the investments we are making in this market are paying off.  Furthermore, the success we're seeing with our new server backup product validates last year's acquisition of Zmanda," said David Friend, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Carbonite. "Our rapidly-growing network of value-added resellers exerts a strong influence in the purchasing decisions of many small businesses and this distribution channel is proving to be an excellent complement to our traditional advertising-driven direct sales model.  We expect SMB to be the dominant driver of our growth in 2014 and beyond, and we think that our comprehensive solutions that include server backup, endpoint backup, and business continuity appliances, will allow us to continue our rapid expansion into the business market."

Business Outlook Based on information available as of October 30, 2013, Carbonite is issuing guidance for the fourth quarter and full year 2013 as follows:

For the fourth quarter of 2013, the Company expects total revenue to be in the range of $28.3 million to $28.5 million and non-GAAP net loss per diluted common share to be in the range of ($0.04) to ($0.02).

The Company expects total revenue for 2013 to be in the range of $106.7 million to $106.9 million and non-GAAP net loss per diluted common share to be in the range of ($0.23) to ($0.21).

Carbonite's expectations of non-GAAP net loss per common share for the full year and quarter excludes stock-based compensation expense, patent litigation expense, a lease exit charge and amortization expense on intangible assets, and assumes a tax rate of 0% and weighted average shares outstanding of approximately 26 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures including bookings, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share, non-GAAP net earnings and non-GAAP net earnings per 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 gross margin, non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share non-GAAP net earnings and non-GAAP net earnings per share exclude amortization expenses on intangible assets, stock-based compensation expenses, patent litigation expenses and a lease exit charge associated with our data center relocation from net loss. 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.
