NetSuite Announces First Quarter 2014 Financial Results

- Record Q1 Revenue of $123.0 Million, a 34% Year-over-Year Increase

- Record Q1 Operating Cash Flows of $19.1 Million, a 30% Year-over-Year Increase

28 Apr, 2014, 16:08 ET from NetSuite Inc.

SAN MATEO, Calif., April 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP and omnichannel commerce software suites, today announced results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

Total revenue for the first quarter of 2014 was $123.0 million, representing a 34% increase over the same period in the prior year.

Cash flows from operations were $19.1 million in the first quarter of 2014, up from $14.7 million in the same period in the prior year.

On a GAAP basis, net loss for the first quarter of 2014 was $22.2 million, or $(0.29) per share, as compared to a net loss of $13.0 million, or $(0.18) per share, in the first quarter of 2013.

Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2014 was $4.4 million, or $0.06 per share, as compared to non-GAAP net income of $2.8 million, or $0.04 per share, in the first quarter of 2013.

"NetSuite's fiscal year 2014 started strong with record first quarter results, as we grew year-over-year revenue by more than 30 percent for our seventh consecutive quarter, beat our outlook on revenue, operating cash flow and non-GAAP earnings per share, and are raising our revenue outlook for the full year," said NetSuite CEO Zach Nelson. "There is clearly a changing of the guard taking place in the ERP market as evidenced by NetSuite's significant market share growth, and by the shrinking core license business of non-cloud ERP vendors such as SAP."

Conference Call

In conjunction with this announcement, NetSuite will host a conference call at 2:00 p.m. PDT (5:00 p.m. EDT) today to discuss our first quarter 2014 financial results and our outlook for the second quarter of 2014 and full year 2014.  A live audio webcast and replay of the call, together with detailed financial information, will be available in the Investor Relations section of NetSuite's website at www.netsuite.com/investors.  The live call can be accessed by dialing 855-812-1881 (U.S.) or 817-385-7868 (outside the U.S.) and referencing passcode: 32050448.  A replay of the call can also be accessed by dialing 855-859-2056 (U.S.) or 404-537-3406 (outside the U.S.), and referencing passcode: 32050448.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Our stated results include certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP operating income, net income, weighted average shares outstanding, and net income per share.  Non-GAAP operating income excludes expenses related to stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, and transaction costs for business combinations.  Non-GAAP net income excludes expenses related to stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, transaction costs for business combinations, non-cash interest expense on convertible debt and income tax benefit associated with business combination.  Non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP net income exclude these expenses as they are often excluded by other companies to help investors understand the operational performance of their business, and in the case of stock-based compensation, can be difficult to predict.  We believe these adjustments provide useful comparative information to investors.

We consider these non-GAAP financial measures to be important because they provide useful measures of our operating performance and are used by our management for that purpose.  In addition, investors often use measures such as these to evaluate the operating performance of a company.  Non-GAAP results are presented for supplemental informational purposes only for understanding our operating results.  The non-GAAP results should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, NetSuite uses non-GAAP measures of operating income, net income, weighted average shares outstanding and net income per share, which are adjusted to exclude stock-based compensation expense, amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, transaction costs for business combinations, non-cash interest expense on convertible debt and income tax benefits associated with business combination and includes dilutive shares where applicable. We believe these adjustments are appropriate to enhance an overall understanding of our past financial performance and also our prospects for the future.

These adjustments to our current period GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of NetSuite's underlying operating results and trends and our marketplace performance.

The non-GAAP results are an indication of our baseline performance that are considered by management for the purpose of making operational decisions. In addition, these non-GAAP results are the primary indicators management uses as a basis for our planning and forecasting of future periods. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for operating loss, net loss or basic and diluted net loss per share prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. Non-GAAP financial measures are not based on a comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and are subject to limitations.

While a large component of our expense in certain periods, we believe investors may want to exclude the effects of these items in order to compare our financial performance with that of other companies and between time periods:

(a) Stock-based compensation is a non-cash expense accounted for in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718.  We believe that the exclusion of stock-based compensation expense allows for financial results that are more indicative of our operational performance and provide for a useful comparison of our operating results to prior periods and to our peer companies because stock-based compensation expense varies from period to period and company to company due to such things as differing valuation methodologies and changes in stock price.  Additionally, we capitalize equity based compensation costs in connection with our capitalization of internally developed software costs.  These equity based compensation costs are included in cost of revenue when the internally developed software costs are amortized.  As such, we included these costs in the stock-based compensation line item to determine both non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP net income.   (b) Amortization of intangible assets and transaction costs, which include employee severance and facility closing costs, related to business combinations resulted principally from mergers and acquisitions.  Expense for the amortization of intangible assets is a non-cash item, and we believe that the exclusion of this amortization expense provides for a useful comparison of our operating results to prior periods and to our peer companies.  Business combinations result in non-continuing operating expenses which would not otherwise have been incurred in the normal course of our business operations.  We believe that the exclusion of acquisition related expense items allows for financial results that are more indicative of our continuing operations and provide for a useful comparison of our operating results to prior periods and to our peer companies.   (c) During the second quarter of 2013, we issued $310.0 million in senior convertible debt with a coupon interest rate of 0.25%.  Interest is paid semiannually on June 1 and December 1 over the five year term of the debt.  In connection with this convertible debt, we are required to recognize non-cash interest expense, including debt transaction costs, in accordance with the authoritative accounting guidance for convertible debt that may be settled in cash. We exclude this incremental non-cash interest expense, including debt transaction costs, for purposes of calculating non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share. We believe that excluding these expenses from our non-GAAP measures is useful to investors because the incremental interest expense does not represent a cash outflow for the company and the debt transactions cost do not represent a cash outflow for the company except in the period the debt was issued and therefore both are not indicative of our continuing operations or meaningful in evaluating current versus past business results. Finally, we believe that non-GAAP measures of profitability that exclude non-cash interest expense and debt transaction costs are widely used by analysts and investors.   (d) In connection with our business acquisitions in the first and fourth quarters of 2013, we recorded an income tax benefit that reduced our income tax provision in each of the respective quarters.  These income tax benefits are non-cash items that would not otherwise have been incurred in the normal course of our business operations.  We believe that the exclusion of acquisition related items allows for financial results that are more indicative of our continuing operations and provide for a useful comparison of our operating results to prior periods and to our peer companies.   (e) These securities are anti-dilutive on a GAAP basis as a result of our net loss, but are considered dilutive on a non-GAAP basis in periods where we reported positive non-GAAP earnings.
