E2open Announces Third Quarter of Fiscal Year 2013 results

E2open, Inc. (NASDAQ: EOPN), a leading provider of strategic, cloud-based software solutions for collaborative execution across global trading networks, today announced financial results for the quarter ended November 30, 2012.

“E2open continued to execute at a high level during our third fiscal quarter, which contributed to financial results that were above the high-end of our guidance,” said Mark Woodward, E2open’s President and CEO. “E2open continues to transform supply chain management with our comprehensive cloud-based platform, allowing enterprises across a number of verticals to collaborate more effectively with their partners around the world. The resulting improvement in visibility, efficiency, and productivity continues to deliver a significant ROI for our clients and is fueling E2open’s business momentum.”

Mr. Woodward added, “We are increasing our fiscal 2013 bookings growth guidance to 30% to 35% based on the strength of our third quarter performance, combined with a healthy pipeline of opportunities. This is greater than our expected fiscal 2013 revenue growth and represents an acceleration from our fiscal 2012 bookings growth of 28%. We remain very optimistic about E2open’s long-term growth opportunity and market position.”

Guidance:

As of January 2, 2013, E2open is providing guidance for its fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 as well as the full fiscal year 2013.

  • Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2013 Guidance: Total GAAP revenue is expected to be in the range of $18.9 million to $19.3 million. Non-GAAP revenue is expected to be in the range of $19.4 million to $19.8 million, which includes a $0.5 million impact to revenue, due to the aforementioned acceleration of revenue in the second quarter of fiscal 2013 in connection with a contract amendment. Non-GAAP income (loss) from operations is expected to be in the range of ($1.4) million to ($0.9) million. Non-GAAP income (loss) per share is expected to be in the range of ($0.06) to ($0.04) based on approximately 27.2 million weighted-average shares outstanding. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of ($1.0) million to ($0.5) million.
  • Full Year Fiscal 2013 Guidance: Total GAAP revenue is expected to be in the range of $76.3 million to $76.7 million, including $3.6 million of revenue accelerated from future periods into the second quarter of fiscal 2013 associated with a contract amendment. Excluding the aforementioned contract amendment (a nonrecurring item), total non-GAAP revenue is expected to be in the range of $72.7 million to $73.1 million. The following non-GAAP guidance excludes the revenue accelerated from future periods due to the contract amendment. Non-GAAP income (loss) from operations is expected to be in the range of ($1.3) million to ($0.8) million. Non-GAAP loss per share is expected to be in the range of ($0.08) to ($0.06) based on approximately 25.3 million weighted-average shares outstanding. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $0.3 million to $0.8 million. Free cash flow is expected to be in the range of ($4.2) million to ($3.1) million. Bookings are expected to be in the range of $94.0 million to $98.0 million, representing growth of approximately 30% to 35% compared to fiscal 2012.

With respect to the Company’s expectations under “Guidance” above, the Company has not reconciled non-GAAP loss from operations or non-GAAP loss per share to GAAP loss from operations and GAAP loss per share because these items are out of the Company’s control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted.

“Safe harbor” statement under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995

This press release contains forward-looking statements about expected GAAP revenue, non-GAAP revenue, non-GAAP income (loss) from operations, non-GAAP income (loss) per share, and Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 and the full fiscal year, and free cash flow and bookings for the full fiscal year. The achievement or success of the matters covered by such forward-looking statements involves risks, uncertainties and assumptions. If any such risks or uncertainties materialize or if any of the assumptions prove incorrect, the company’s results could differ materially from the results expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements we make.

The risks and uncertainties referred to above include, but are not limited to, risks associated with the company’s growth strategy; the company’s plans for future products; the company’s operating results; the company’s ability to anticipate future market demands and future needs of its customers; the company’s customer concentration; the company’s ability to effectively manage its growth; the company’s expectations regarding its use of proceeds from its initial public offering; the company’s expectations regarding expenses, sales and operations; anticipated trends and challenges in the markets in which the company operates; the company’s competition; the company’s ability to successfully enter new markets and manage its international expansion; and the company’s intellectual property.

Further information on these and other factors that could affect the company’s financial results is included in the filings made with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the company’s Form 10-Q that will be filed for the third quarter ended November 30, 2012. These documents are available on the SEC Filings section of the Investor Relations section of the company’s website at: investor.e2open.com.

E2open, Inc. assumes no obligation and does not intend to update these forward-looking statements, except as required by law.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Our reported results include certain non-GAAP financial measures, including bookings, non-GAAP revenue, non-GAAP operating income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss), weighted average shares outstanding, non-GAAP net income (loss) per share, adjusted EBITDA, and free cash flow. Bookings represent the full value of customer orders or contracts signed during a reporting period. Non-GAAP operating income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) exclude expenses related to stock-based compensation expense and noncash income taxes as they are often excluded by other companies to help investors understand the operational performance of their business and, in the case of stock-based compensation, can be difficult to predict. In addition, stock-based compensation expense varies from period to period and company to company due to such things as differing valuation methodologies and changes in stock price. Non-GAAP revenue, non-GAAP operating income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) also exclude the impact of certain accelerated revenue recognized in connection with a contract amendment in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss), adjusted for accelerated revenue from a contract amendment, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, interest and other expense, net, and provision for income taxes. Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities less capital expenditures, which consist of purchases of property, equipment and software. Reconciliation tables are provided in this press release. Management believes that the use of non-GAAP financial measures provides consistency and comparability with our past financial performance, facilitates period to period comparisons of results of operations, and also facilitates comparisons with other peer companies, many of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results. Non-GAAP results are presented for supplemental informational purposes only for understanding our operating results. The non-GAAP results should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...
