09 Nov, 2015, 16:05 ET from Jive Software

PALO ALTO, Calif., Nov. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Jive Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: JIVE), the leading provider of modern communication and collaboration solutions for business, today announced financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2015.

"Jive delivered a solid third quarter performance as we met the high end of revenue guidance and outperformed non-GAAP net loss per share expectations," said Elisa Steele, CEO and president of Jive Software.  "Our results provide encouraging signs that our transformation initiatives are on track, as we continue to simplify our industry-leading solutions and implement a more repeatable go-to-market strategy.  A prime example of our progress is the latest internal collaboration solution that combines our powerful Jive-n product with our new Jive-w workstyle applications to create the world's first 'Interactive Intranet.'  We continue to work to position Jive for improved growth and profitability over time."

A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures has been provided in the financial statement tables included in this press release. An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading "Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

Financial Outlook

As of November 9, 2015, Jive's guidance for its fourth quarter 2015 and updated guidance for the full year 2015 is as follows:

  • Fourth Quarter 2015 Guidance:
    • Total revenue is expected to be in the range of $49.0 million to $50.0 million.
    • Non-GAAP loss from operations is expected to be in the range of $2.5 million to $4.5 million.
    • Non-GAAP net loss per share is expected to be in the range of $0.04 to $0.06 based on approximately 76.2 million weighted-average diluted shares outstanding.
  • Full Year 2015 Guidance:
    • Total revenue is expected to be in the range of $195.1 million to $196.1 million.
    • Short-term billings growth is expected to be in the range of 0% to 5%.
    • Non-GAAP loss from operations is expected to be in the range of $8.9 million to $10.9 million.
    • Non-GAAP net loss per share is expected to be in the range of $0.13 to $0.15 based on approximately 75.2 million weighted-average diluted shares outstanding. 
    • Free cash flow is expected to be in the range of negative $2.0 million to negative $7.0 million

With respect to the Company's expectations under "Financial Outlook" above, the Company has not reconciled non-GAAP loss from operations or non-GAAP loss per share to GAAP loss from operations and GAAP loss per share because the Company does not provide guidance for stock-based compensation, income taxes or amortization of intangible assets, which are reconciling items between those Non-GAAP and GAAP measures.  As certain items that impact GAAP loss from operations and GAAP loss per share are out of the Company's control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted, the Company is unable to provide such guidance.  Accordingly, a reconciliation to GAAP loss from operations and GAAP loss per share is not available without unreasonable effort.

Jive will host a conference call today at 2:00 p.m. PT (5:00 p.m. ET) to review the company's financial results for the third quarter 2015, and outlook for the fourth quarter and full year 2015.  To access this call, dial 844-492-3729 (domestic) or 412-542-4195 (international).  A live webcast and replay of the conference call will be accessible from the events and presentations page in the investor relations  section of Jive's website at http://jive.to/Q315-earnings.  A replay of this conference call can be accessed through November 16, 2015, by dialing 877-344-7529 (domestic) or 412-317-0088 (international).

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses certain non-GAAP financial measures in this release.  Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's performance, financial position or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. 

Non-GAAP gross profit, loss from operations, net loss and net loss per share exclude stock-based compensation expenses and amortization of acquisition related intangible assets. Non-GAAP net loss and net loss per share exclude a non-recurring gain. Total billings is defined by the Company as revenue plus the change in total deferred revenue. Short-term billings is defined by the Company as revenue plus the change in short-term deferred revenue.  Management presents these non-GAAP financial measures because it considers them to be important supplemental measures of performance. Management uses the non-GAAP financial measures for planning purposes, including analysis of the Company's performance against prior periods, the preparation of operating budgets and to determine appropriate levels of operating and capital investments. Management also believes that the non-GAAP financial measures provide additional insight for analysts and investors in evaluating the Company's financial and operational performance. However, these non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool and are not intended to be an alternative to financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. We intend to provide these non-GAAP financial measures as part of our future earnings discussions and, therefore, the inclusion of these non-GAAP financial measures will provide consistency in our financial reporting. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to GAAP is provided in the accompanying tables.
