Model N Announces Third Quarter 2019 Results

August 6, 2019

SAN MATEO, Calif.–(August 6, 2019)– Model N, Inc., (NYSE: MODN), the leading provider of cloud revenue management solutions for life sciences and high tech companies, today announced financial results for the third quarter, which ended June 30, 2019.

“Our results this quarter again exceeded our guidance for both revenue and profitability,” said Jason Blessing, Chief Executive Officer at Model N. “Strong subscription bookings growth continued in Q3 driven by a continuation of the new customer acquisition trends we experienced in the first half of the year and healthy installed base expansions. We are just starting to realize the benefits of the strategic focus on life sciences and high tech and the adjustments we made to our go-to-market last fall. These steps combined with market momentum will continue to lead to strong results.”

Recent Highlights:

  • New Customer Acquisition Momentum Continues – We had another strong quarter of new customer acquisitions which builds on the strength we saw in the first half of the year. During the quarter, we added new customers whose revenues ranged from approximately $1.0 billion to over $20.0 billion. We continue to believe new customer acquisition will be a growth driver for us.
  • IDC Names Model N One of Top 10 Software Vendor for Life Sciences – For the second year in a row, IDC named Model N as a top vendor in its worldwide life science software market share rankings, based on life science software license revenue in 2018.
  • Subscription Growth Delivers Improved Cash Flow and Stronger Balance Sheet – We continue to strengthen our balance sheet through the combination of non-GAAP profitability, free cash flow generation and debt repayments. Our cash balance at June 30, 2019 was $58.5 million and we repaid another $5 million in debt on July 1, 2019. In total, we have paid down more than 25% of our debt in the last 12 months.

Third Quarter 2019 Financial Highlights:

  • Revenues: Subscription revenues were $26.6 million compared to $24.9 million for the third quarter of fiscal year 2018. Total revenues were $34.7 million compared to $39.6 million for the third quarter of fiscal year 2018 which reflects the adoption of ASC 606, the increased focus on selling cloud-based software to customers in life sciences and high tech and the expected reduction in professional services for legacy on-premise implementations.
  • Gross profit: Gross profit was $18.8 million compared to $23.2 million for the third quarter of fiscal year 2018. Gross margins were 54% compared to 58% for the third quarter of fiscal year 2018. Non-GAAP gross profit was $20.3 million compared to $24.3 million for the third quarter of fiscal year 2018. Non-GAAP gross margins were 58% compared to 61% for the third quarter of fiscal year 2018. Subscription gross margin for the quarter was 67% compared to 62% for the third quarter of fiscal year 2018. Non-GAAP subscription gross margin for the quarter was 71% compared to 65% for the third quarter of fiscal year 2018 as we drive scale.
  • Income (loss) from operations: GAAP loss from operations was $(2.1) million compared to a GAAP loss from operations of $(11.0) million for the third quarter of fiscal year 2018. Non-GAAP income from operations was $3.0 million compared to non-GAAP income from operations of $2.5 million for the third quarter of fiscal year 2018.
  • Net loss: GAAP net loss was $(3.0) million compared to a net loss of $(15.4) million for the third quarter of fiscal year 2018. GAAP basic and diluted net loss per share attributable to common stockholders was $(0.09) based upon weighted average shares outstanding of 32.6 million, as compared to net loss per share of $(0.50) for the third quarter of fiscal year 2018 based upon weighted average shares outstanding of 30.7 million.
  • Non-GAAP net income (loss): Non-GAAP net income was $2.1 million as compared to non-GAAP net loss of $(2.0) million for the third quarter of fiscal year 2018. Non-GAAP diluted net income per share was $0.06 based upon weighted average diluted shares outstanding of 33.5 million, as compared to non-GAAP diluted net loss per share $(0.07) for the third quarter of fiscal year 2018 based upon weighted average diluted shares outstanding of 30.7 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA was $3.3 million compared to $3.1 million for the same period of last fiscal year.
  • Cash and cash flow: Cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2019 totaled $58.5 million. Net cash provided by operating activities was $4.8 million for the nine months of fiscal year 2019, compared with net cash used in operating activities of $(0.6) million in the prior fiscal year period. Free cash flow generation was $4.6 million for the nine months of fiscal year 2019, compared with free cash flow used of $(0.8) million in the prior fiscal year period.

A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures has been provided in the financial tables included in this press release.

Guidance:

As of August 6, 2019, we are providing guidance for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2019 and the full fiscal year ending September 30, 2019. The adoption of ASC 606 had an adverse impact on our fiscal year 2019 total revenues in the amount of $7.2 million.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements including, among other things, statements regarding Model N’s fourth quarter and full year fiscal year 2019 financial results and future prospects and results, including the ability to continue to execute on business strategy.. The words “believe,” “may,” “will,” “estimate,” “continue,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “expect,” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties, and assumptions. If the risks materialize or assumptions prove incorrect, actual results could differ materially from the results implied by these forward-looking statements. Risks include, but are not limited to: (i) delays in closing customer contracts; (ii) our ability to improve and sustain our sales execution; (iii) the timing of new orders and the associated revenue recognition; (iv) adverse changes in general economic or market conditions; (v) delays or reductions in information technology spending and resulting variability in customer orders from quarter to quarter; (vi) competitive factors, including but not limited to pricing pressures, industry consolidation, entry of new competitors and new applications and marketing initiatives by our competitors; (vii) our ability to manage our growth effectively; and (viii) acceptance of our applications and services by customers; (ix) success of new products; (x) the risk that the strategic initiatives that we may pursue will not result in significant future revenues; (xi) changes in health care regulation and policy and tax in the United States and worldwide; and (xii) our ability to retain customers. Further information on risks that could affect Model N’s results is included in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), including our most recent quarterly report on Form 10-Q and our annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2018, and any current reports on Form 8-K that we may file from time to time. Should any of these risks or uncertainties materialize, actual results could differ materially from expectations. Model N assumes no obligation to, and does not currently intend to, update any such forward-looking statements after the date of this release.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We have provided in this release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with accounting standards generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). We use these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing our financial results and believe they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating our ongoing operational performance. We believe 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 our financial results with other companies in our industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures below. A reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures has been provided in the financial statement tables included below in this press release.

Our reported results include certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margins, non-GAAP subscription gross margins, non-GAAP income (loss) from operations, non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss) per share, and adjusted EBITDA. Non-GAAP gross profit excludes stock-based compensation expenses, deferred revenue adjustments and amortization of intangible assets. Non-GAAP income (loss) from operations and non-GAAP net income (loss) exclude stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, and the deferred revenue adjustment resulting from the Revitas acquisition as they are often excluded by other companies to help investors understand the operational performance of their business. We have not provided a reconciliation of forecasted Non-GAAP results with GAAP results due to the difficulties of estimating certain items such as charges related to stock-based compensation expense. In addition, stock-based compensation expense varies from period to period and from company to company due to such things as differing valuation methodologies and changes in stock price. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net loss, adjusted for depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, acquisition & integration related expenses, deferred revenue adjustment, interest (income) expense, net, and other (income) expenses, net, and provision (benefit) for income taxes. Reconciliation tables are provided in this press release.

We have not reconciled guidance for non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures because certain items that impact these measures are uncertain, out of our control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted. Accordingly, a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure guidance to the corresponding GAAP measures is not available without unreasonable effort.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, Model N uses non-GAAP measures of adjusted EBITDA, gross profit, gross margin, loss from operations, net loss, weighted average shares outstanding and net loss per share, which are adjusted to exclude Channel Insight and Revitas acquisition related costs, deferred revenue adjustment and valuation allowance resulting from Revitas acquisition, stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets and includes dilutive shares where applicable. We believe these adjustments are appropriate to enhance an overall understanding of our past financial performance and also our prospects for the future. These adjustments to our current period GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of Model N’s underlying operating results and trends and our marketplace performance. The non-GAAP results are an indication of our baseline performance that are considered by management for the purpose of making operational decisions. In addition, these non-GAAP results are the primary indicators management uses as a basis for our planning and forecasting of future periods. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for operating loss, net loss or basic and diluted net loss per share prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. Non-GAAP financial measures are not based on a comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and are subject to limitations.

While a large component of our expenses incurred in certain periods, we believe investors may want to exclude the effects of these items in order to compare our financial performance with that of other companies and between time periods:

(a) Stock-based compensation is a non-cash expense accounted for in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718. Stock-based compensation is a non-cash item. We believe that the exclusion of stock-based compensation expense provides for a better comparison of our operating results to prior periods and to our peer companies.

(b) Amortization of intangible assets resulted principally from acquisitions. Intangible asset amortization is a non-cash item. As such, we believe exclusion of these expenses provides for a better comparison of our operating results to prior periods and to our peer companies.

(c) Represents deferred revenue adjustment resulting from purchase price accounting that is related to the Revitas acquisition and is a non-cash item. As such, we believe this adjustment provides for a better comparison of our operating results to prior periods and to our peer companies.
