Feb 11, 2016, 08:05 ET from Vonage

HOLMDEL, N.J., Feb. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Vonage Holdings Corp. (NYSE: VG), a leading provider of cloud communications services for businesses and consumers, today announced results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2015.

Summary of Full Year 2015 Results

"We made enormous progress optimizing the profitability of Consumer Services while successfully pivoting to the Unified Communications for Business market," said Alan Masarek, Chief Executive Officer of Vonage. "During the year, we successfully integrated the five companies we acquired over the last two years and built the industry's broadest multi-channel sales distribution platform to address the full spectrum of the business market. Vonage Business now has a scalable, efficient platform capable of supporting continued rapid organic growth while successfully absorbing future acquisitions."

Mr. Masarek continued, "I'm particularly proud of the stellar financial results we delivered in parallel with the operational improvements, acquisition integrations, and foundation building we completed. We generated consolidated revenue growth for the second consecutive year, and EBITDA was the highest in four years."

For the full year 2015, Vonage reported revenue of $895 million, up from $869 million in the prior year. Income from operations was $53 million, down from $58 million in the prior year. Vonage Business revenue was $219 million, up from $94 million in the prior year.  Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization1 ("adjusted EBITDA") were $144 million, a 16% increase over the prior year. GAAP net income was $23 million or $0.11 per share, up from $20 million or $0.10 per share in 2014. Adjusted net income2 was $68 million or $0.32 per share, up from $60 million, or $0.28 per share in the prior year.

Fourth Quarter Consolidated Financial Results

For the fourth quarter of 2015, Vonage reported revenue of $230 million, up from $215 million in the year ago quarter. Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter was $34 million, flat sequentially and down from $35 million in the year ago quarter. GAAP net income was $3 million, or $0.02 per share, flat sequentially and down from $6 million in the prior year period. Adjusted net income was $13 million or $0.06 per share, down from $19 million, or $0.09 per share in the year ago quarter.

Vonage Business Results

  • Revenue at Vonage Business was $71 million in the fourth quarter, up from $28 million in the year ago quarter, a 149% year-over-year increase on a GAAP basis.
  • Revenue churn at Vonage Business was 1.1% in the fourth quarter, down from 1.3% sequentially and 1.5% in the year ago quarter. This reduction in Business churn is the result of material improvements in customer retention, as well as the addition of iCore's mid-market and enterprise customer base, which tends to have a lower churn profile.
  • Ending seats were 542,000, up from 311,000 seats in the year ago quarter, reflecting strong organic growth and the addition of SimpleSignal and iCore customers.

In 2015, Vonage significantly expanded its presence in the Enterprise segment. Vonage is uniquely positioned to serve the Enterprise market through the Company's robust enterprise-grade solution, which includes Vonage's private cloud and national MPLS network, with 21 Points-of-Presence (POPs) across the country, as well as the ability to integrate business workflow with a company's communications system. This combination enables Vonage to guarantee the Quality of Service (QoS) and Service Level Agreements (SLAs) needed to provide large enterprises with a reliable communications solution, while providing tools that increase employee productivity.

"According to Gartner, Enterprise spend on cloud-based telephony will grow at nearly 35% a year for the next several years. We are seeing that first-hand in our own client base and pipeline," Mr. Masarek said. "We believe this demand is driven by greater adoption of cloud services and the efficiencies that enterprises are realizing by integrating their communications system with their everyday business workflow."

Vonage has an established base of Enterprise customers, including WeWork, a market leading provider of shared workspace with nearly 80 locations across the globe. WeWork has deployed more than 4,500 seats already, and Vonage is pleased to be part of their growth plans as they expand into additional International markets, including in the UK, where Vonage recently migrated WeWork's multiple locations to the Vonage solution.

Consumer Services Results

  • Revenue in Consumer Services was $159 million in the fourth quarter, compared to $186 million in the prior year period, reflecting the Company's decision to redeploy capital into the rapidly growing UCaaS for business sector and to optimize cash flow from this segment.
  • Consumer Services customer churn improved to 2.2% in the fourth quarter, down from 2.4% in the year ago quarter.
  • Average revenue per line ("ARPU") in Consumer Services was $26.93, down from $28.06 in the year ago period.
  • Consumer Services net line losses were approximately 58,000, reflecting the Company's continued focus on improving the quality of its customers to drive increased profitability. Consumer Services ended the fourth quarter with 1.9 million subscriber lines.

Patent Portfolio

Vonage continues to develop innovative technologies and to protect its valuable intellectual property. The Company was granted 14 new patents in the fourth quarter and now owns 105 U.S. patents, with 230 U.S. patent applications pending.

Share Repurchase

In 2015, Vonage purchased 3.3 million shares of stock for $15.2 million at an average price of $4.58. Since beginning its repurchase programs in August 2012, the Company has repurchased 48 million shares for $148 million through the end of 2015 at a highly accretive average price of $3.08. The Company's repurchase activity is subject to change in the context of its overall capital deployment strategy as market conditions and acquisition opportunities may warrant. For example, the Company did not repurchase stock in the fourth quarter of 2015, but has repurchased 525,000 shares for $2.6 million, at an average price of $5.00 per share, thus far in the first quarter of 2016.

2016 Outlook

For 2016, the Company expects total revenue to be in the range of $905 million to $920 million.  Within this, Vonage Business GAAP revenue is expected to grow roughly 50% from 2015 to 2016, prior to any additional acquisitions.  The Company expects adjusted EBITDA to be at least $150 million. This revenue and adjusted EBITDA outlook reflects a disciplined approach to Consumer Services, and includes significant growth from, and material investment into, Vonage Business to drive growth in the UCaaS sector. The Company expects 2016 capital expenditures and software development to be approximately $38 million. This capital expenditure guidance is net of tenant improvement capital expenditures the Company is investing in its corporate headquarters in Holmdel, NJ, which are being refunded in cash by the building owner in connection with the long-term lease renewal.  The majority of capital expenditures reflect investments to support the Company's long-term growth objectives, including consolidating its U.S. data centers and other success-based capital projects. Revenue, EBITDA and capital expenditure guidance does not include the impact of potential acquisitions, which are an important component of the Company's strategy.

(1)         Customer churn differs from our previously reported Average Monthly Customer Churn in that our business customers are no longer included in this metric.  In addition, in the course of developing the customer churn metric, the Company determined that the calculation used for the previously reported consolidated Average Monthly Customer Churn metric utilized a lower number of customer accounts for certain reporting periods, resulting in an immaterial overstatement of churn in certain prior periods.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the Securities and Exchange Commission, including: adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("adjusted EBITDA"), adjusted EBITDA less Capex, adjusted net income, net debt (cash) and free cash flow.

Adjusted EBITDA

Vonage uses adjusted EBITDA as a principal indicator of the operating performance of its business.

Vonage defines adjusted EBITDA as GAAP income (loss) from operations excluding depreciation and amortization, share-based expense, acquisition related costs, loss from discontinued operation, depreciation from discontinued operation, and net loss attributable to noncontrolling interest.

Vonage believes that adjusted EBITDA permits a comparative assessment of its operating performance, relative to its performance based on its GAAP results, while isolating the effects of depreciation and amortization, which may vary from period to period without any correlation to underlying operating performance, of share-based expense, which is a non-cash expense that also varies from period to period, of one-time acquisition related costs, and of loss from discontinued operation, depreciation from discontinued operation, and net loss attributable to our noncontrolling interest, each of which relate to one time effects caused by the termination of our Brazilian joint venture.

The Company provides information relating to its adjusted EBITDA so that investors have the same data that the Company employs in assessing its overall operations. The Company believes that trends in its adjusted EBITDA are valuable indicators of the operating performance of the Company on a consolidated basis and of its ability to produce operating cash flow to fund working capital needs, to service debt obligations, and to fund capital expenditures.

Adjusted EBITDA less Capex

Vonage uses adjusted EBITDA less Capex as an indicator of the operating performance of its business. The Company provides information relating to its adjusted EBITDA less Capex so that investors have the same data that the Company employs in assessing its overall operations. The Company believes that trends in its adjusted EBITDA less Capex are valuable indicators of the operating performance of the Company on a consolidated basis because they provide our investors with insight into current performance and period-to-period performance regarding the Company's ability to generate cash from continuing operations.

Adjusted net income

Vonage defines adjusted net income, as GAAP net income (loss) excluding amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, acquisition-related costs, and income tax expense.

The Company has excluded amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, acquisition-related costs, and income tax expense from its net income (loss). The Company believes that excluding these items will assist investors in evaluating the Company's operating performance and in better understanding its results of operations as income tax expense does not reflect the taxes that we pay during the periods reported due to the availability of significant net operating losses, amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets which is a non-cash item, and one-time acquisition-related costs.

Net debt (cash)

Vonage defines net debt (cash) as the current maturities of capital lease obligations, current portion of notes payable, notes payable and indebtedness under revolving credit facility, net of current maturities and debt related costs, and capital lease obligations, net of current maturities, less unrestricted cash and marketable securities.

Vonage uses net debt (cash) as a measure of assessing leverage, as it reflects the gross debt under the Company's credit agreements and capital leases less cash available to repay such amounts. The Company believes that net cash is also a factor that third parties consider in valuing the Company.

Free cash flow

Vonage defines free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities minus capital expenditures, purchase of intangible assets, and acquisition and development of software assets.

Vonage considers free cash flow to be a liquidity measure that provides useful information to management about the amount of cash generated by the business that, after the acquisition of equipment and software, can be used by Vonage for debt service and strategic opportunities. Free cash flow is not a measure of cash available for discretionary expenditures since the Company has certain non-discretionary obligations such as debt service that are not deducted from the measure.

The non-GAAP financial measures used by Vonage may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies due to differences in accounting policies and items excluded or included in the adjustments, which limits its usefulness as a comparative measure. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results.
