BOSTON, MA – Sept. 19, 2017 — / — Carbonite, Inc. (NASDAQ:CARB), a leading provider of cloud, hybrid and onsite data protection solutions, will host its Inaugural Financial Analyst and Investor Day today, Tuesday, September 19, 2017 from approximately 1:00 p.m. ET to 5:00 p.m. ET at the Company’s headquarters in Boston, Massachusetts.

“Our inaugural financial analyst and investor day provides an opportunity for us to showcase the incredible team at Carbonite, detail our growth strategy, discuss our key differentiators, and outline our long-term financial goals.  We have made incredible progress in building the architecture and integrating the technologies that create the foundation for our market-leading data protection platform, and I look forward to sharing our plans for continued growth and success,” said Mohamad Ali, President and CEO of Carbonite.

The Company reiterated its third quarter 2017 business outlook previously issued in conjunction with the reporting of its second quarter 2017 financial results on August 3, 2017.  Outlook for the third quarter of 2017 is as follows:

  • GAAP Revenue in the range of $59.0 – $61.0 million
  • Non-GAAP Revenue in the range of $60.5 – $62.5 million
  • Non-GAAP Net Income per share in the range of $0.19 – $0.21

“We are confident in our ability to deliver a meaningful sequential increase in profitability during the third quarter, driven in part by the continued operational efficiencies from building and operating an extremely efficient cloud platform,” said Anthony Folger, CFO of Carbonite. “As a result, we are reiterating our previously issued third quarter 2017 business outlook.”

“Today we are outlining our long-term financial model, which showcases the opportunity for a significant expansion in profitability and free cash flow generation, with a continued balance of organic and inorganic revenue growth,” continued Folger.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP revenue and non-GAAP net income per share.

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.

The Company has not reconciled these non-GAAP measures in this press release because we do not provide guidance for stock-based compensation expense, litigation-related expense, acquisition-related expense, amortization expense on intangible assets, non-cash convertible debt interest expense, and the income tax effect of non-GAAP adjustments as we are unable to quantify certain of these amounts that would be required to be included in the GAAP measure without unreasonable efforts. In addition, the Company believes such reconciliations would imply a degree of precision that would be confusing or misleading to investors.
