26 Jul, 2012, 16:08 ET from NetSuite Inc.

SAN MATEO, Calif., July 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP software suites, today announced operating results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2012.   

Total revenue for the second quarter of 2012 was $74.7 million, representing a 29% increase over the same period in the prior year. Subscription and support revenue for the second quarter of 2012 was $61.0 million, representing a 27% increase over the same period in the prior year.

Cash flows from operations were $15.2 million in the second quarter of 2012, an increase of $6.7 million, or 80%, over the same period last year.

On a GAAP basis, net loss for the second quarter of 2012 was $9.9 million, or $(0.14) per share, as compared to a net loss of $9.8 million, or $(0.15) per share, in the second quarter of 2011.

Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2012 was $4.8 million, or $0.06 per share, as compared to non-GAAP net income of $1.6 million, or $0.02 per share, in the second quarter of 2011.

"In a quarter that saw many enterprise software companies struggle, NetSuite had one of its best quarters ever.  We saw continued improvements across our financial metrics and exceeded our previously stated outlook on revenue, cash flow and non-GAAP EPS significantly.  And the continued execution against our core strategies allows us to increase our full-year outlook for revenue and non-GAAP EPS," said NetSuite CEO Zach Nelson.

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 second quarter 2012 financial results and our outlook for the third quarter of 2012 and full year 2012.  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 888-554-1430 (U.S.) or 719-325-2172 (outside the U.S.) and referencing passcode: 235-4836.

In particular, the following factors, among others, could cause results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements: the market for on-demand services may develop more slowly than expected or than it has in the past; continued adverse and unpredictable macro-economic conditions or reduced investments in on-demand applications and information technology spending; quarterly operating results may fluctuate more than expected; unexpected disruptions of service at one or more of our data centers may occur; a security breach may impact operations; risks associated with material defects or errors in our software or the effect of undetected computer viruses could impact operations; the risk of technological developments and innovations by others; our ability to successfully identify other businesses and technologies for acquisition that will complement our business and the ability to successfully acquire and integrate those businesses and technologies; the risk of loss of power or disruption in Internet service; failure to manage growth and effectively scale the organization; failure to protect and enforce our intellectual property rights; assertions by third parties that we infringe their intellectual property rights; the ability to manage operations when faced with competitive pricing and marketing strategies by competitors or changing macro-economic conditions; the risk of losing key employees; evolving government regulation of the Internet and Ecommerce; changes to current accounting rules; changes in foreign exchange rates, and general political or destabilizing events, including war, conflict or acts of terrorism; and other risks and uncertainties.

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 and non-GAAP net income exclude expenses related to stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, transaction costs for business combinations and costs associated with the settlement of a patent dispute.  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 and costs associated with the settlement of a patent dispute 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 continuing operations 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 stock-based compensation when the internally developed software costs are amortized.

(b)

Amortization of intangible assets and transaction 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.  In Q2 2012, certain customers acquired in a previous business combination transitioned from their legacy service offering to a NetSuite service offering or terminated their service completely.  As a result, we recorded a $401,000 impairment charge related to the legacy product's developed technology intangible asset.  This impairment charge is included in amortization of intangible assets.  Business combinations result in non-continuing operating expenses which would not otherwise have been incurred by us 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)

In 2011, we entered into a patent cross licensing agreement with a large technology company which, among other things, resolved a patent dispute over our alleged past usage of the other party's technology.  This resolution resulted in a charge in the second quarter of 2011.  We believe that the impact of this patent cross licensing agreement on our financial statements in the second quarter of 2011 is not indicative of our continuing operations and its exclusion allows for financial statements that provide for a useful comparison of our operating results to prior periods and to our peer companies.

(d)

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.
