BURLINGTON, Mass., May 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Endurance International Group Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:EIGI), a leading provider of cloud-based platform solutions designed to help small and medium-sized businesses succeed online, today reported financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2016.

"We delivered an excellent quarter, reflecting our focus on operational and financial discipline," commented Hari Ravichandran, chief executive officer and founder of Endurance International Group. "This quarter demonstrated a collective focus as we balanced our efforts between the initial integration of Constant Contact and the other initiatives we are simultaneously driving. I am very pleased with our performance, and am confident in our ability to drive the business for delivery of a strong fiscal 2016 and for years to come." 

First Quarter 2016 Financial Highlights

  • GAAP revenue for the first quarter of 2016 was $237.1 million, an increase of 34 percent compared to $177.3 million in the first quarter of 2015. GAAP revenue for the quarter includes the contribution of $39.1 million from Constant Contact, since February 10, 2016, the day after the closing date of the acquisition. Excluding this contribution, GAAP revenue was $198.0 million, an increase of 12 percent compared to the first quarter of 2015.
  • Adjusted revenue for the first quarter was $253.0 million, an increase of 42 percent compared to $178.7 million in the first quarter of 2015. Adjusted revenue for the quarter includes the contribution of $52.8 million from Constant Contact, since the acquisition close date of February 9, 2016. Excluding this contribution, adjusted revenue was $200.2 million, an increase of 12 percent compared to the first quarter of 2015.
  • Net income attributable to Endurance International Group Holdings, Inc. for the first quarter was $21.8 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, compared to net income of $0.9 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2015. Net income was positively impacted by a tax benefit in the quarter of approximately $99.9 million related primarily to the reversal of reserves generated by the acquisition of Constant Contact.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter was $87.1 million, an increase of 29 percent compared to $67.6 million in the first quarter of 2015.   
  • GAAP cash from operations in the first quarter was $11.8 million, a decrease of 77 percent compared to $50.2 million for the first quarter of 2015. The first quarter 2016 reduction in GAAP cash from operations was due primarily to transaction, integration and restructuring, and legal expenses of $41.2 million, and increased interest expense.
  • Free cash flow ("FCF"), defined as GAAP cash from operations less capital expenditures and capital lease obligations, for the first quarter was $0.2 million compared to $42.0 million in the first quarter of 2015. The first quarter 2016 reduction in free cash flow was due primarily to transaction, integration and restructuring, and legal expenses of $41.2 million, and increased interest expense.
  • Adjusted FCF, which is FCF excluding the impact of transaction, integration and restructuring, and legal expenses of approximately $41.2 million, was $41.4 million.

First Quarter Operating Highlights

  • Total subscribers on platform were approximately 5.446 million, including approximately 566,000 subscribers from the Constant Contact acquisition, approximately 85,000 subscribers from the consolidation of WZ UK Ltd., both of which were completed in the first quarter, and a net increase of approximately 126,000 subscribers. See "Total Subscribers" below. The Constant Contact subscriber count has been updated to conform to the Endurance subscriber definition. This resulted in a subscriber count that is approximately 70,000 lower than it would have been using the Constant Contact definition.
  • Average revenue per subscriber (ARPS) for the first quarter was $16.44, compared to $14.37 for the same period a year ago. Excluding the impact of Constant Contact, ARPS for the first quarter was $13.87.  

Fiscal 2016 Guidance:
The company is providing the following guidance as of the date of this release, May 3, 2016. This guidance includes the impact of the acquisition of Constant Contact.

For the full year ending December 31, 2016, the company expects:

 Combined Entity Pro Forma Basis*Combined Entity — Closing Date Basis (based on closing date of February 9, 2016)
Adjusted Revenue~ $1,225 million 
~ $1,175 million
Adjusted EBITDA~ $405 million  ~ $400 million
Capital Expendituresn/a
~ $60 million

Free Cash Flow**

n/a
$180-$190 million (before transaction, integration and restructuring, and legal expenses) and $140-$150 million (after transaction, integration and restructuring, and legal expenses)

* Represents results or guidance, as applicable, for 2016 as if the acquisition of Constant Contact had occurred on January 1, 2016.

** Guidance for FCF is calculated based upon the following estimated, approximate amounts: $200 million in GAAP cash flow from operations, less $60 million in capital expenditures and capital lease obligations. Guidance for FCF before transaction, integration and restructuring, and legal expenses (which we refer to as adjusted FCF) adds back approximately $50 million of these expenses. 

Adjusted revenue, combined pro forma adjusted revenue, adjusted EBITDA, combined pro forma adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow (FCF), adjusted FCF, and ARPS are non-GAAP financial measures. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable measure calculated in accordance with GAAP is provided in the financial statement tables included at the end of this press release. An explanation of these measures is also provided below under the heading "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures." We have not reconciled our guidance for adjusted revenue or adjusted EBITDA to the most comparable GAAP metrics because we do not provide guidance for the reconciling items between these non-GAAP metrics and the most comparable GAAP metrics, as certain of these items are out of our control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted.

Conference Call and Webcast Information

Endurance International Group's first quarter 2016 financial results teleconference and webcast is scheduled to begin at 8:00 a.m. EDT on Tuesday, May 3, 2016. To participate on the live call, analysts and investors should dial (888) 734-0328 at least ten minutes prior to the call. Endurance International Group will also offer a live and archived webcast of the conference call, accessible from the Investor Relations section of the company's website at http://ir.endurance.com.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to our financial information presented in accordance with GAAP, we use certain "non-GAAP financial measures" described below to evaluate the operating and financial performance of our business, identify trends affecting our business, develop projections and make strategic business decisions. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's operating performance, financial position or cash flow that includes or excludes amounts that are included or excluded from the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. We monitor the non-GAAP financial measures described below, and we believe they are helpful to investors, because we believe they reflect the operating performance of our business and help management and investors gauge our ability to generate cash flow, excluding some recurring and non-recurring expenses that are included in the most directly comparable measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.

Our non-GAAP financial measures may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies in our industry, as other companies in our industry may calculate non-GAAP financial results differently, particularly related to adjustments for integration and restructuring expenses. In addition, there are limitations in using non-GAAP financial measures because they are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies and exclude expenses that may have a material impact on our reported financial results. Furthermore, interest expense, which is excluded from some of our non-GAAP measures, has been and will continue to be for the foreseeable future a significant recurring expense in our business. The presentation of non-GAAP financial information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. We urge you to review the reconciliations of our non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures included below, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business. For a further discussion of these measures, see our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on February 29, 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that we calculate as net income (loss) plus (i) changes in deferred revenue, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation expense, loss of unconsolidated entities, net loss on sale of assets, impairment of other intangibles, expenses related to integration of acquisitions and restructurings, transaction expenses and charges, certain legal advisory expenses, interest expense and income tax expense, less (ii) earnings and gains related to unconsolidated entities, net gain on sale of assets and the impact of purchase accounting related to reduced fair value of deferred domain registration costs. We view adjusted EBITDA as a performance measure. Due to our history of acquisitions and financings, we have incurred and will continue to incur charges for integration, restructuring and transaction expenses that primarily relate to the process of acquiring another business and integrating that business into our support and/ or technical platforms. We believe that adjusting for these items is useful to investors in evaluating the post integration performance of our company. We manage our business based on the cash collected from our subscribers and the cash required to acquire and service those subscribers. We believe highlighting cash collected and cash spent in a given period provides insight to an investor to gauge the overall performance of our business. Under GAAP, although subscription fees are paid in advance, we recognize the associated revenue over the subscription term, which does not fully reflect short-term trends in our operating results. In order to capture these trends and report our performance consistently with how we manage our business, we include the change in deferred revenue for the period in our calculation of adjusted EBITDA for that period.

Combined Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that we calculate as pro forma net income (loss) plus (i) changes in pro forma deferred revenue, pro forma depreciation, pro forma amortization, pro forma stock-based compensation expense, pro forma loss of unconsolidated entities, pro forma net loss on sale of assets, pro forma impairment of other intangibles, pro forma expenses related to integration of acquisitions and restructurings, pro forma transaction expenses and charges, pro forma interest expense and pro forma income tax expense, less (ii) pro forma earnings of unconsolidated entities, pro forma net gain on sale of assets and the pro forma impact of purchase accounting related to reduced fair value of deferred domain registration costs. We believe that presenting combined pro forma adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors because it provides a view of Adjusted EBITDA as if Constant Contact had been consolidated in our financial results during the applicable period.

Free Cash Flow, or FCF, is a non-GAAP financial measure that we calculate as cash flow from operations less capital expenditures and capital lease obligations and dividend from minority interest. We believe that FCF provides investors with an indicator of our ability to generate positive cash flows after meeting our obligations with regard to capital expenditures and payment of interest on our outstanding indebtedness.

Adjusted FCF is a non-GAAP financial measure that we calculate as FCF plus transaction expenses and charges, integration and restructuring expenses, and certain legal advisory expenses. We believe that this presentation of FCF provides investors with a helpful alternative view of our 2016 FCF by adding back expenses, most of which relate to our acquisition of Constant Contact, that we believe do not reflect the ongoing operating performance of our business.

Adjusted Revenue is a non-GAAP financial measure that we calculate as GAAP revenue adjusted to exclude the impact of any fair value adjustments to deferred revenue resulting from acquisitions. Historically, we also adjusted the amount of revenue to include the revenue generated from subscribers we added through business acquisitions as if those acquired subscribers had been our subscribers since the beginning of the period presented. Since the first quarter of 2014, we have included the revenue we add through business acquisitions from the closing date of the relevant acquisition. We believe that excluding fair value adjustments to deferred revenue is useful to investors because it shows our revenue prior to purchase accounting charges related to our acquisitions.

Combined Pro Forma Adjusted Revenue is a non-GAAP financial measure that we calculate as combined pro forma GAAP revenue adjusted to exclude the impact of any fair value adjustments to deferred revenue resulting from acquisitions. We believe that presenting combined pro forma adjusted revenue is useful to investors because it provides a view of Adjusted Revenue as if Constant Contact had been consolidated in our financial results during the applicable period.

Total Subscribers - We define total subscribers as those that, as of the end of a period, are identified as subscribing directly to our products on a paid basis, excluding accounts that access our solutions via resellers or that purchase only domain names from us. Historically, in calculating total subscribers, we included the number of end-of-period subscribers we added through business acquisitions as if those subscribers had subscribed with us since the beginning of the period presented. Since the first quarter of 2014, we have included subscribers we added through business acquisitions from the closing date of the relevant acquisition. Additionally, in the fourth quarter of 2014, we modified our definition of total subscribers to better reflect our expanding product mix by including paid subscribers to all of our subscription-based products, rather than limiting the definition to paid subscribers to our hosted web presence solutions. Subscribers of more than one brand, and subscribers with more than one distinct billing relationship with us, are counted as separate subscribers. Total subscribers for a period reflects adjustments to add or subtract subscribers as we integrate acquisitions and/or are otherwise able to identify subscribers that meet, or do not meet, this definition of total subscribers. Approximately 8 percent of the increase in total subscribers in the first quarter 2016 consists of these adjustments. Of the increase of approximately 777,000 in our total subscribers from December 31, 2015 to March 31, 2016, approximately 566,000 consisted of the subscriber base of Constant Contact, which we acquired in the first quarter 2016, and approximately 85,000 consisted of subscribers of our WZ UK Ltd. joint venture, which we consolidated in our financial results in January 2016.

Average Revenue Per Subscriber, or ARPS, is a non-GAAP financial measure that we calculate as the amount of adjusted revenue we recognize in a period, including marketing development funds and other revenue not received from subscribers, divided by the average of the number of total subscribers at the beginning of the period and at the end of the period, which we refer to as average subscribers for the period. We believe ARPS is an indicator of our ability to optimize our mix of products and services and pricing and sell products and services to new and existing subscribers. As we on-board new subscribers, we typically on-board them at introductory prices, which negatively impacts ARPS. Furthermore, ARPS can be impacted by our acquisitions since the acquired subscribers may have higher or lower than average ARPS, and by adjustments to our total subscribers figure as described above. ARPS does not represent an exact measure of the average amount a subscriber spends with us each month, since our calculation of ARPS is impacted by revenues generated by non-subscribers.

(1) The gain of unconsolidated entities is reported on a net basis for the three months ended March 31, 2016. The three months ended March 31, 2016 includes an $11.4 million gain on our investment in WZ UK Ltd. This gain was generated on January 6, 2016, when we increased our ownership stake in WZ UK Ltd. from 49% to 57.5%, which required a revaluation of our existing investment to its implied fair value.

(1) The gain of unconsolidated entities is reported on a net basis for the three months ended March 31, 2016. The three months ended March 31, 2016 includes an $11.4 million gain on our investment in WZ UK Ltd. This gain was generated on January 6, 2016, when we increased our ownership stake in WZ UK Ltd. from 49% to 57.5%, which required a revaluation of our existing investment to its implied fair value. This $11.4 million gain was partially offset by our proportionate share of net losses from unconsolidated entities of $0.7 million.

(2) Consists of legal and related advisory expenses associated with securities class action litigation and related matters and the SEC subpoenas received by us and Constant Contact in December 2015.
