Revenue and Bookings Growth Exceeds 40%; Company Increases 2016 Outlook
BOSTON, MA – May 03, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — Carbonite, Inc. (NASDAQ:CARB), a leading provider of cloud backup and disaster recovery solutions for small and midsize businesses (SMBs), today announced financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2016.
“I am very pleased to report that SMB bookings grew by more than 120% year over year, and for the first time, SMB accounted for more than 50% of total quarterly bookings. SMB demand for cloud backup and disaster recovery solutions continues to grow, driven by the need to protect valuable data against an evolving threat landscape. With the Carbonite product line-up providing market-leading cloud backup for small businesses, and the EVault product suite providing best-in-class disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) solutions for mid-size businesses, we are well positioned to capitalize on all of the opportunities ahead,” said Mohamad Ali, President and CEO of Carbonite.
“Our strong performance in the first quarter was driven by bookings of EVault-branded products combined with better than 25% bookings growth of Carbonite-branded SMB products, led by our Carbonite Server Backup solution. Both consumer and SMB retention rates remained at all-time highs and we drove gross margin improvement and improved profitability through disciplined cost management,” said Anthony Folger, CFO of Carbonite.
First Quarter 2016 Results:
1 Non-GAAP revenue excludes the impact of purchase accounting adjustments for the acquisition of EVault.
2 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.
3 Non-GAAP gross margin excludes the impact of purchase accounting adjustments, amortization expense on intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense and acquisition-related expense.
4 Non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share excludes the impact of purchase accounting adjustments, 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.
5 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, restructuring-related 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 reconciliations to the most comparable GAAP measures are provided in the tables at the end of this press release.
For the full year of 2016, non-GAAP revenues are expected to be in the range of $177.5-$192.5 million and non-GAAP net income per share to be in the range of $0.31 – $0.35 (basic and diluted).
Carbonite’s expectations of non-GAAP net income per share for the second quarter and full year of 2016 excludes the impact of purchase accounting adjustments, 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 27.1 million for the second quarter and full year of 2016.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
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 ordinary 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.
