[2] Bookings represent the aggregate dollar value of customer subscriptions and software arrangements, which may include multiple revenue elements, such as software licenses, hardware, professional services and post-contractual support, 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 and divestitures, net of foreign exchange during the same period.

[3] Non-GAAP gross margin excludes the impact of purchase accounting adjustments on acquired deferred revenue, amortization expense on intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, acquisition-related expense and intangible asset impairment charges.

[4] Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share excludes the impact of purchase accounting adjustments on acquired deferred revenue, amortization expense on intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, litigation-related expense, restructuring-related expense, acquisition-related expense, intangible asset impairment charges, non-cash convertible debt interest expense and the income tax effect of non-GAAP adjustments.

[5] Adjusted free cash flow is calculated by subtracting the cash paid for the purchase of property and equipment and adding the payments related to acquisitions, restructuring, litigation and the cash portion of the lease exit charge from net cash provided by operating activities.


Business Outlook
Based on the information available as of February 13, 2018, Carbonite expects the following for the first quarter and full year of 2018:

First Quarter 2018:

Current Guidance
(2/13/2018)
GAAP Revenue $61.7 – $63.7 million
Non-GAAP Revenue $63.0 – $65.0 million
Non-GAAP Net Income Per Share $0.20 – $0.24

Full Year 2018:

Current Guidance
(2/13/2018)
Business Bookings $223.8 – $234.8 million
Consumer Bookings Y/Y Growth 5% – 15% growth
GAAP Revenue $294.0 – $304.0 million
Non-GAAP Revenue $302.5 – $312.5 million
Non-GAAP Net Income Per Share (Diluted) $1.45 – $1.55
Non-GAAP Gross Margin 76.0% – 77.0%
Adjusted Free Cash Flow $32.0 – $38.0 million

The guidance provided above reflects the estimated impact of ASC 606, which Carbonite is adopting in the first quarter of 2018. Carbonite’s expectations of non-GAAP net income per share for the first quarter and full year of 2018 excludes the impact of purchase accounting adjustments on acquired deferred revenue, amortization expense on intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, litigation-related expense, restructuring-related expense, non-cash convertible debt interest expense, and the income tax effect of non-GAAP adjustments. Non-GAAP net income per share assumes an effective tax rate of 11% for the full year of 2018. Non-GAAP net income per share assumes fully-diluted weighted average shares outstanding of approximately 29.7 million for the first quarter and 29.9 million for the full year of 2018.

Conference Call and Webcast Information
In conjunction with this announcement, Carbonite will host a conference call on Tuesday, February 13, 2018 at 5:30 p.m. ET to review the results. This call will be webcast live and can be found in the investor relations section of the Company’s website at http://investor.carbonite.com. The conference call can also be accessed by dialing (877) 303-1393 in the United States or (315) 625-3228 internationally with the passcode 1669107.

Following the completion of the call, a recorded replay will be available on the Company’s website, http://investor.carbonite.com, under “Events & Presentations”.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, this press release contains non-GAAP financial measures, including bookings, non-GAAP revenue, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share, non-GAAP operating expense and adjusted free cash flow.

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 urges investors to review the reconciliation of its non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures provided in the tables at the end of this press release, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate the Company’s business.

With respect to our expectations under “Business Outlook” above, the Company has not reconciled non-GAAP net income per share to net (loss) income per share 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.
