Concur Reports Strong Revenue, Earnings and Cash Flow for Fiscal 2012

Increasing customer demand in core business and new markets expected to drive continued strong revenue growth of 25% in fiscal 2013

REDMOND, Wash., Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Concur (Nasdaq: CNQR) today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended September 30, 2012.

Concur reported total revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 of $117.9 million, up 24% from the year-ago quarter and up 4% from the prior quarter. Fiscal 2012 fourth quarter non-GAAP pre-tax income was $23.1 million, or $0.40 per share. 

For the full 2012 fiscal year, revenue increased 26% from the prior fiscal year to $439.8 million, and non-GAAP pre-tax income increased 19% from the prior fiscal year to $78.7 million, or $1.39 per share.

"Driven by the investments we made over the past few years, we continue to meet or exceed our targets on key financial metrics such as revenue, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP earnings and cash flow," said Steve Singh, Chairman and CEO of Concur. "Just as importantly, those investments are meaningfully expanding the addressable market we can serve and driving the innovation curve in our industry.  As a result, we expect revenue in fiscal 2013 to grow by 25% fueled by strong customer growth across all geographies, notably the SMB and global account market segments."

Singh continued, "Concur's vision of The Perfect Trip is built on creating a travel ecosystem that dynamically responds to the needs of business travelers, the companies that they work for and the suppliers that serve them.  Innovations such as Concur Open Booking and the Concur T&E Cloud are transforming our industry, and have been enthusiastically embraced by customers, suppliers and application developers.  We are enabling the success of partners and application providers through the Concur T&E Cloud and fostering innovation through investments in companies such as TaxiMagic, ClearTrip, Yapta, Room 77 and buuteeq."

Recent Business Highlights

  • Concur is revolutionizing the corporate travel industry by continuing to drive innovation for travelers, businesses and suppliers to fuel The Perfect Trip™. Recent highlights delivered against this vision – supported by The Concur® T&E Cloud, Concur® Open Booking and Concur® Big Data – include:
    • Concur unveiled Trip Maximizer for Concurforce, the Concur travel and expense management offering designed for Salesforce that now enhances the entire process of planning, booking and conducting business travel for employees who need to visit with prospects and clients in the field.
    • Concur announced cloud-to-cloud integration with NetSuite where completed and approved T&E expense reports feed directly into the NetSuite Employee Center, making comprehensive and accurate T&E spend data available through NetSuite's Accounts Payable and General Ledger services.
    • Concur co-led a $10 million funding round for buuteeq, the leading cloud digital marketing system for hotels, which helps hotels of all sizes, anywhere in the world reach their customers, and drives ongoing benefits for Concur corporate clients who want to deliver the broadest array of corporate-approved choices to their business travelers.
  • Concur extended its leadership position in the travel and expense management market, adding a record number of new clients across its global customer base. 
    • The Company saw particular strength adding new customers and expanding deployments within its core enterprise customer segment. 
    • Concur continues to experience rapid growth in the SMB market as these businesses look to capitalize on the benefits of an integrated solution. 
    • The success of emerging markets such as Japan helped fuel the expansion of Concur's global customer base and created new opportunities for future revenue growth.

  • Concur continues to see momentum in helping higher education clients drive down the costs of travel and expense management – recently showcasing industry-leading innovation, a new partnership with Huron Consulting Group and higher education client successes at the 2012 Society for Collegiate Travel and Expense Management (SCTEM) Conference.

To date, the program has enabled more than 3,000 accounting professionals and SMB consultants to bring greater value to their small business customers by introducing them to Concur expense reporting solutions that help save time, minimize hassles, control spending, optimize cash flow management and prevent fraud.

Business Outlook

The following statements are based on our current expectations and we do not undertake any duty to update them. These statements are forward-looking and inherently uncertain. Actual results may differ materially as a result of the factors identified below, the factors identified in our public filings made with the Securities and Exchange Commission, or other factors. Please also refer to "About Concur's Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below for an explanation of our non-GAAP financial measures and a reconciliation of those measures to GAAP equivalents.

  • Concur expects revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 to grow approximately 21% year-over-year from the first quarter of fiscal 2012. For the first quarter of fiscal 2013, Concur expects non-GAAP pre-tax income per share to be $0.30.  Non-GAAP pre-tax income excludes the effects of non-cash related items such as stock-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets, and the accretion of the discount on our senior convertible notes.  It also excludes the non-cash accounting implications and cash fees and expenses of acquisitions and other related strategic activity in which the Company may deploy capital. 
  • Concur expects fiscal 2013 revenue to grow approximately 25% year-over-year from fiscal 2012.
  • Concur expects fiscal 2013 non-GAAP pre-tax income per share to be at least $1.40.
  • Concur expects fiscal 2013 non-GAAP operating margin to be approximately 16% to 19%.
  • Concur expects cash flows from operations in fiscal 2013 to be at least $80 million, excluding the TripIt contingent consideration reconciliation, acquisition and other related costs. The Company expects capital expenditures in fiscal 2013 to be slightly greater than its typical range of 6% to 8% of revenue.

This press release contains forward-looking statements that are inherently uncertain. These forward-looking statements, such as the statements made by Mr. Singh, are based on Concur's current expectations and involve many risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations. Factors that could cause or contribute to actual results differing from current expectations include, but are not limited to: potential difficulties in connection with recent business and asset acquisitions, including achievement of the anticipated benefits of these acquisitions or the broader integration of such businesses with Concur; adverse economic or market conditions, which may cause customers and prospects to delay or reduce purchases of our products and services, cause customers to reduce business travel and correspondingly reduce the use of our products and services, reduce the ability of customers, channel partners, vendors and suppliers to fulfill their obligations to us, increase volatility of our stock price and foreign exchange rates, and otherwise adversely affect our operations and financial performance; potential delays in market adoption and penetration of our subscription service offerings; potential difficulties associated with our deployment and support of our products and services; our ability to manage expected growth of our subscription service offerings; the scalability and security of our computer networks and hosting infrastructure for our subscription service offerings; risks associated with the privacy and protection of information while in our possession; potential increases in the rate of attrition of customers of our subscription service offerings; the level of investment in information technology by our customers; the level of business travel that may reduce the use of our products and services or inhibit new sales of our products and services; potential difficulties associated with strategic relationships and with development of new products and services; risks or difficulties associated with expansion into new geographic markets; uncertain market acceptance of recently-introduced or future products and services; and risks associated with our financing and investment activities.

Please refer to the Company's public filings made with the Securities and Exchange Commission at www.sec.gov for additional and more detailed information on risk factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations.

CONCUR TECHNOLOGIES, INC.

About Concur's Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This release contains non-GAAP financial measures. The tables above reconcile the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP").

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for, or as superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Concur's non-GAAP financial measures do not reflect a comprehensive system of accounting, and they differ from GAAP measures with similar names and from non-GAAP financial measures with the same or similar names that are used by other companies. We strongly urge investors and potential investors in our securities to review the reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures that are included in this release, and our consolidated financial statements, including the notes thereto, and the other financial information contained in our periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.

Concur's management believes that its non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors because it allows investors to view the business through the eyes of management. Further, Concur believes that its non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding Concur's operating results because they exclude amounts that Concur excludes as part of its monitoring of operating results and assessing the performance of the business. In addition, Concur believes that its non-GAAP financial measures facilitate the comparison of results for current periods and the business outlook for future periods with results of past periods because the measures provide a special focus on the underlying operating performance of the business relative to expectations.

Concur presents the following non-GAAP financial measures in this release: non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP operating expense, non-GAAP pre-tax income, non-GAAP cost of operations, non-GAAP sales and marketing expenses, non-GAAP systems development and programming expenses, non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP diluted shares, and non-GAAP diluted pre-tax income per share. Concur excludes the following items as noted from these non-GAAP financial measures:

  • Share-based compensation. Concur's non-GAAP financial measures exclude share-based compensation, which consists of expenses for restricted stock units ("RSU"). Concur excludes these expenses from its non-GAAP financial measures primarily because they are non-cash expenses that it does not consider part of ongoing operating results when assessing the performance of our business, and the exclusion of these expenses facilitates the comparison of results and business outlook for future periods with results for prior periods.
  • Amortization of intangible assets. In accordance with GAAP, operating expenses include amortization of acquired intangible assets such as customer relationships and technology. Concur excludes these items from its non-GAAP financial measures because they are typically static expenses that Concur does not consider part of ongoing operating results when assessing the performance of our business, and Concur believes that doing so facilitates comparisons to its historical operating results and to the results of other companies in our industry, which have their own unique acquisition histories.
  • Acquisition and other related costs.  We have excluded the effect of acquisition and other related costs from our non-GAAP financial measures. We incurred such expenses in connection with our acquisitions and other strategic investments which we generally would not have otherwise incurred in the periods presented as a part of our continuing operations. We also believe it is useful for investors to understand the effects of these items on our operations.  Acquisition and other related costs include transaction fees, due diligence costs, travel expenses, and other one-time direct costs associated with strategic activity in which we may deploy capital.
  • Revaluation of contingent consideration. The authoritative guidance on business combinations requires contingent consideration to be recorded at fair value on the acquisition date.  The authoritative guidance also requires that changes in the fair value of the contingent consideration subsequent to the acquisition date be recorded in our statements of income.  Under the prior authoritative guidance, contingent consideration would have been included as a component of deal consideration based on the actual amount paid, if any, when the contingency was resolved.  Concur's non-GAAP financial measures exclude the revaluation of contingent consideration, which is the change in fair value of the liability-classified acquisition-related contingent consideration. Concur excludes the unrealized gains or losses from the re-measurement of the contingent consideration from its non-GAAP financial measures in order to facilitate the comparison of post-acquisition operating results.  We believe it is useful for investors to understand the effects of these items on our operations.
  • Contingent consideration (included in compensation expense).  Concur's non-GAAP financial measures exclude contingent consideration included in compensation expense which relates to the potential cash payment to certain TripIt employees whose right to receive such payment is forfeited if they terminate their employment prior to the required service period.  The contingent cash payment that these employees are entitled to receive is part of the consideration that all TripIt shareholders received from Concur in exchange for their TripIt shares.  As receipt of the contingent payment is subject to continued employment, GAAP requires that it be accounted for as compensation expense and such expense is also subject to revaluation similar to the item above "revaluation of contingent consideration".  Concur excludes this item from its non-GAAP financial measures primarily because it is a component of the deal consideration that it does not consider part of ongoing operating results when assessing the performance of our business, and the exclusion of these expenses facilitates the comparison of post-acquisition operating results.
  • Noncontrolling interest joint venture. Noncontrolling interest joint venture includes income or loss from operations due to our joint venture partner and is excluded from the calculation of non-GAAP operating income because it is unrelated to our ownership in the venture.
  • Loss from equity investments. For investments under the equity method, Concur recognizes its share of the earnings or losses of an investee and adjusts the carrying amount of an investment for its share of the earnings or losses of the investee, including adjustments to recognize certain differences between our carrying value and our equity in net assets, after the date of investments. Concur's non-GAAP financial measures excluded the earnings or losses from GAAP income because it is unrelated to our ongoing operations and is significantly impacted by factors outside our direct control.
  • Accretion of note discount.  In accordance with GAAP, interest expense on the senior convertible notes includes the accretion of the discount, which is a non-cash expense that Concur does not consider part of ongoing operating results when assessing the performance of our business.
  • Income tax expense (benefit).  Concur excludes this expense from certain non-GAAP financial measures primarily because it is largely a non-cash expense that Concur does not consider a meaningful component of our operating results when assessing the performance of our business, and the exclusion of this expense (benefit) facilitates the comparison of our business outlook for future periods with results for prior periods.

Further, for calculating non-GAAP pre-tax income per share:

  • Pre-tax income is adjusted for the impact of the non-GAAP adjustments described above.
  • Non-GAAP diluted shares are adjusted to include the anti-dilutive impact of options to purchase shares of our own stock that reduce the potential economic dilution upon conversion of our senior convertible notes.  Under GAAP, the anti-dilutive impact of such call options ("Senior Convertible Notes Hedge") is not reflected in diluted shares. Concur has included the anti-dilutive impact of the Senior Convertible Notes Hedge, if any, in non-GAAP diluted shares because we believe it is useful for investors to understand their economic effects.
  • The dilutive effect of all unvested share-based awards, if any, are included in the calculation of non-GAAP pre-tax income per share.

Except as noted below, Concur believes that all of the following considerations apply equally to each of the non-GAAP financial measures that we present:

  • Concur's management uses non-GAAP operating income (including the derived non-GAAP operating margin), non-GAAP operating expense, non-GAAP pre-tax income and non-GAAP diluted pre-tax income per share in internal reports used by management in monitoring and making decisions regarding Concur's business. For example, these measures are used in monthly financial reports prepared for management, and in quarterly reports to Concur's Board of Directors. Concur also uses non-GAAP pre-tax diluted income per share as a measure to determine executive cash incentive compensation.
  • Because share-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets, accretion of discount on senior convertible notes and income tax expense (benefit) are largely non-cash in nature, Concur believes that non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating expense, non-GAAP diluted shares, non-GAAP pre-tax income and non-GAAP diluted pre-tax income per share provide a more focused view of the operations of its business. In particular, share-based compensation amounts are difficult to forecast because the magnitude of the charges depends upon the volume and timing of RSU grants. Excluding these amounts improves comparability of the performance of the business across periods.
  • The principal limitation of Concur's non-GAAP financial measures is that they exclude significant expenses that are required by GAAP to be recorded. In addition, non-GAAP financial measures are subject to inherent limitations because they reflect the exercise of judgments by management about which charges are excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures.
  • To mitigate this limitation, Concur presents its non-GAAP financial measures in connection with its GAAP results, and recommends that investors do not give undue weight to its non-GAAP financial measures.
