Fiscal 2018 Guidance

The Company is updating its guidance for the full year ending December 31, 2018.  As of the date of this release, October 25, 2018, the Company expects:

  2017 Actual
as Reported
Prior Guidance Revised Guidance
(as of October 25,  2018)
GAAP revenue $1.177 billion $1.140 to $1.160 billion $1.140 to $1.150 billion
Adjusted EBITDA $351 million $310 to $330 million $330 to $335 million
Free cash flow $151 million ~$120 million ~$120 million

As previously disclosed, the Company’s free cash flow guidance does not reflect the impact of the payment made in the second quarter of 2018 pursuant to its settlement with the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission, or anticipated payments pursuant to the securities class action lawsuit settlements described in the Company’s Form 8-K filed on May 18, 2018. The class action lawsuit settlements remain subject to court approval, and will impact the Company’s actual free cash flow for 2018 if approved by the court and paid this year.

Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow 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.

First and Second Quarter 2018 Income Tax Expense Revision

The Company has revised its deferred income tax provision for the first and second quarter of 2018 to reflect a revision that favorably impacted net income (loss) for these periods.  This revision does not impact the previously reported figures for Adjusted EBITDA, Cash Flow from Operations or Free Cash Flow.

During fiscal year 2017, the Company began a process to reorganize, and in some instances, eliminate legal entities associated with certain products introduced in 2015 and 2016. This reorganization is expected to provide tax benefits, as the Company can deduct losses on the investments in these entities in its U.S. income tax filings. After further review of these losses, the Company has determined that a significant portion of these losses should have been reflected in its 2017 income tax provision calculations. This change in position does not impact the actual income tax provision recorded in 2017; however, due to the changes enacted in the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the manner in which net operating loss carryforwards are handled does impact the Company's 2018 provision for non-cash deferred income taxes. The details of the first and second quarter revision are shown in the tables at the end of this press release.

Conference Call and Webcast Information

Endurance International Group’s third quarter 2018 financial results teleconference and webcast is scheduled to begin at 8:00 a.m. EDT on Thursday, October 25, 2018. 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.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to our financial information presented in accordance with GAAP, we use adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow, which are non-GAAP financial measures, to evaluate the operating and financial performance of our business, identify trends affecting our business, develop projections and make strategic business decisions. A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s operating performance, financial position or cash flow that excludes amounts that are included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP or includes amounts that are excluded from the most directly comparable measure 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. In addition, there are limitations in using non-GAAP financial measures because they are not prepared in accordance with GAAP and exclude expenses that may have a material impact on our reported financial results. For example, adjusted EBITDA excludes interest expense, which 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 from, or as a substitute for, the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. We urge you to review the additional information about adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow shown below, including the reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to their comparable GAAP financial measures, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that we calculate as net (loss) income, excluding the impact of interest expense (net), income tax expense (benefit), depreciation, amortization of other intangible assets, stock-based compensation, restructuring expenses, transaction expenses and charges, (gain) loss of unconsolidated entities, impairment of other long-lived assets, SEC investigations reserve (with respect to fiscal year and third quarter 2017), and shareholder litigation reserve. We view adjusted EBITDA as a performance measure and believe it helps investors evaluate and compare our core operating performance from period to 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. 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 (including capital lease obligations).

Key Operating Metrics

Total Subscribers - We define total subscribers as the approximate number of subscribers 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. Subscribers of more than one brand, and subscribers with more than one distinct billing relationship or subscription 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. In the third quarter of 2018, these adjustments had a negligible impact on our total subscriber count.

Average Revenue Per Subscriber (ARPS) - We calculate ARPS as the amount of 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, divided by the number of months in the period. See definition of “Total Subscribers” 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.

Average Revenue Per Subscriber - Calculation and Segment Detail

We present our financial results in the following three segments.

  • Web presence. The web presence segment consists primarily of our web hosting brands and related products such as website security, website design tools and services, and e-commerce products.

  • Email marketing. The email marketing segment consists of Constant Contact email marketing tools and related products and the SinglePlatform digital storefront product.

  • Domain. The domain segment consists of domain-focused brands and certain web hosting brands that are aligned with our domain-focused brands. This segment sells domain names and domain management services to resellers and end users, as well as premium domain names, and also generates advertising revenue from domain name parking.

(1)  Interest expense includes impact of amortization of deferred financing costs, original issuance discounts and interest income.
(2)  As disclosed in the first quarter of 2018, we revised the allocation of our 2017 adjusted EBITDA between our web presence and domain segment to correct a misallocation of domain registration costs in our previously reported segment figures. This correction resulted in the reallocation of adjusted EBITDA from the domain segment to the web presence segment of $1.9 million and $4.9 million for the three and nine months ending September 30, 2017, respectively.  Consolidated adjusted EBITDA figures for these periods were not affected by this correction.
