BOSTON, MA – Feb. 04, 2016 –/BackupReview.info/ — Carbonite, Inc. (NASDAQ:CARB), a leading provider of cloud and hybrid business continuity solutions for small and midsize businesses (SMBs), today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2015.

The Company reported:

  • Record revenue of $136.6 million for 2015, an increase of 11% year over year
  • Record bookings of $144.1 million for 2015, an increase of 12% year over year
  • Record revenue of $35.1 million for the fourth quarter, an increase of 10% year over year
  • Record bookings of $37.4 million for the fourth quarter, an increase of 8% year over year

The Company also reported that both SMB and consumer bookings for 2015 were consistent with expectations. SMB bookings grew 35% over 2014, consistent with expectations of growth greater than 30% and consumer bookings grew 2% consistent with expectations of zero to 5%.  Non-GAAP gross margins and non-GAAP net income per share significantly outperformed expectations for the year ended December 31, 2015.

“2015 was a strong year for Carbonite, driven by the growth in SMB bookings which accounted for 38% of total bookings in 2015 versus 31% in 2014. Now that we have closed the acquisition of EVault, integration will be a top priority as we integrate the two businesses to maximize operational and go-to-market synergies, positioning ourselves for continued growth,” said Anthony Folger, CFO of Carbonite.

“The acquisition of EVault is transformative for Carbonite,” said Mohamad Ali, President and CEO of Carbonite. With EVault, Carbonite now has a complete family of products that address the needs of all sizes of SMBs, positioning us to gain share in the cloud-based backup and disaster recovery market and enter the disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) market – a market with an estimated 30% CAGR through 2018 according to Gartner – with customer-proven solutions. I’m most pleased with how we continue to deliver value above and beyond what our customers expect of us, which is evident by the numerous customer-choice awards we won in 2015. There’s no doubt we’ve hit our stride and after substantial progress made in 2015, we’re well positioned for continued success in the year ahead.”

_________

Bookings represent the aggregate dollar value of customer subscriptions received during a period and are calculated as revenue recognized during a particular period plus the change in total deferred revenue, excluding deferred revenue recorded in connection with acquisitions, net of foreign exchange during the same period.
Non-GAAP gross margin excludes amortization expense on intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense and acquisition-related expense.
Non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share excludes amortization expense on intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, litigation-related expense, restructuring-related expense, acquisition-related expense, hostile takeover-related expense, and CEO transition expense.
Free cash flow is calculated by subtracting the cash paid for the purchase of property and equipment and adding the payments related to corporate headquarter relocation, acquisition-related payments, hostile takeover-related payments, CEO transition payments, litigation-related payments and the cash portion of the lease exit charge from net cash provided by operating activities.

An explanation of non-GAAP measures is provided under the heading “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below and reconciliation to the most comparable GAAP measures is provided in the tables at the end of this press release.

Business Outlook
For the first quarter of 2016, non-GAAP revenues are expected to be in the range of $40.0-$45.0 million and non-GAAP net loss per share to be in the range of ($0.07)-($0.05) (basic and diluted).

For the full year of 2016, non-GAAP revenues are expected to be in the range of $175.0-$190.0 million and non-GAAP net income per share to be in the range of $0.09-$0.15 (basic and diluted).

Carbonite’s expectations of non-GAAP net income (loss) per share for the quarter and full year excludes stock-based compensation expense, litigation-related expense, acquisition-related expense, amortization expense on intangible assets and assumes a 2016 effective tax rate of 0% and weighted average shares outstanding of approximately 27.2 million for the quarter and 27.3 million for the full year 2016.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures including bookings, non-GAAP revenue, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share, non-GAAP operating expense and free cash flow. Bookings represent the aggregate dollar value of customer subscriptions received during a period and are calculated as revenue recognized during a particular period plus the change in total deferred revenue, excluding deferred revenue recorded in connection with acquisitions, net of foreign exchange during the same period. Non-GAAP revenue excludes the impact of purchase accounting adjustments.  Non-GAAP gross margin excludes amortization expense on intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense and acquisition-related expense. Non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share excludes amortization expense on intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, litigation-related expense, restructuring-related expense, acquisition-related expense, hostile takeover-related expense, and CEO transition expense. Non-GAAP operating expense excludes amortization expense on intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, litigation-related expense, restructuring-related expense, acquisition-related expense, hostile takeover-related expense, and CEO transition expense.  Free cash flow is calculated by subtracting the cash paid for the purchase of property and equipment and adding the payments related to corporate headquarter relocation, acquisition-related payments, hostile takeover-related payments, CEO transition payments, litigation-related payments and the cash portion of the lease exit charge from net cash provided by operating activities.

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 financial results, including this press release, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate the Company’s business.
