Medidata Reports Record First Quarter 2014 Results

Medidata (NASDAQ:MDSO), the leading global provider of cloud-based solutions for clinical research in life sciences, today announced its financial results for the first quarter of 2014.

"Interest in Medidata’s platform is at an all-time high as our clients and prospects look to transform clinical development,” said Tarek Sherif, Medidata's chairman and chief executive officer. “We are seeing great sales momentum, as our pipeline continues to build, giving us confidence that 2014 will be another outstanding year. Our industry focus, along with our ability to execute, innovate and make targeted strategic investments, is driving competitive advantage while laying the foundation for sustainable long-term success. Deep client relationships, client wins and strengthening partnerships with CROs and systems integrators are solidifying our leadership position in the global clinical research ecosystem.”

First Quarter 2014 Results

  • Total revenues for the first quarter of 2014 were $76.6 million, an increase of $13.3 million, or 21%, compared with $63.3 million in 2013. Subscription revenue was $63.8 million, an increase of 26% compared with the same period last year.
  • GAAP operating income for the quarter was $0.3 million, compared with $7.1 million in the first quarter of 2013. Non-GAAP operating income* for the first quarter of 2014 was $12.5 million, compared with $14.2 million a year ago.
  • GAAP net (loss) for the first quarter of 2014 was ($1.8) million, or ($0.03) per diluted share, compared with net income of $5.7 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2013. Adjusted non-GAAP net income* for the first quarter of 2014 was $5.9 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, compared with $9.1 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2013. See the non-GAAP reconciliation included in this release for full details of the non-GAAP adjustments.
  • Total cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities were $403.5 million at the end of the first quarter of 2014, an increase of $279.5 million, or 225%, compared with $124.0 million at the end of the first quarter of 2013, primarily due to net proceeds from the convertible senior notes issued during 2013 and strong cash flows over the past year.
  • Cash flow from operations was ($6.3) million in the first quarter of 2014, compared with $2.9 million a year ago.

Additional Highlights

  • Medidata’s customer base grew to 420, with 32 new clients added in the first quarter of 2014, an increase of 88% over the number of new clients added in the first quarter of 2013. Customer growth was realized in all regions and across multiple products.
  • 52% of customers had committed to multiple products at the end of the first quarter of 2014, up from 41% at the end of the first quarter of 2013.
  • Medidata’s industry-leading CRO program continued to grow, with three new partners added, including a top 5 CRO. Several partners also began using a broader set of applications within the Medidata Clinical Cloud™, including Medidata’s trial management solution for their own work.
  • Billings were $90 million in the first quarter of 2014, a 43% increase over the first quarter of 2013.
  • Subscription backlog for the remainder of the year as of March 31, 2014 increased to $177 million, an increase of $21 million year over year. Subscription backlog does not include revenues associated with intra-year renewals. Including a minimum of $15 million of revenue associated with remaining intra-year renewals, subscription backlog would have increased to $192 million.
  • Medidata's overall revenue retention rate was nearly 100%.

"We are off to a good start to the year and on track to achieving the financial outlook we provided earlier in the year,” said Cory Douglas, Medidata’s chief financial officer. “We continue to make disciplined investments to maximize our long-term opportunity to drive platform adoption while advancing our growth trajectory.”

(“Medidata”), including but not limited to statements about Medidata’s forecast of financial performance, products and services, business model, strategy and growth opportunities, and competitive position. Such statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual performance or results to differ materially from those expressed in these statements. In particular, the risks and uncertainties include, among other things, risks associated with possible fluctuations in our financial and operating results; errors, interruptions or delays in our service or our Web hosting; the financial impact of any future acquisitions; our ability to continue to release, and gain customer acceptance of, new and improved versions of our products; changes in our sales and implementation cycles; competition; our ability to retain and expand our customer base or increase new business from those customers; our ability to hire, retain and motivate our employees and manage our growth; regulatory developments; litigation; and general developments in the economy. For additional disclosure regarding these and other risks faced by the company, see disclosures contained in Medidata’s public filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission including, the “Risk Factors” section of Medidata’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013.

*Non-GAAP Financial Information

Medidata provides non-GAAP operating income, net income and net income per share applicable to common stockholders data as additional information for its operating results. These measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. Non-GAAP operating income excludes the impact of depreciation, amortization of intangible assets associated with acquisitions, stock-based compensation expense, and an adjustment to the fair value of contingent consideration. Adjusted non-GAAP net income excludes the impact of tax-affected amortization of intangible assets associated with acquisitions, stock-based compensation expense, an adjustment to the fair value of contingent consideration, and non-cash interest expense on convertible senior notes. Management uses these non-GAAP measures to evaluate its financial results, develop budgets, manage expenditures, and as an important factor in determining variable compensation. In addition, investors frequently have requested information from management regarding depreciation, amortization and other non-cash charges, such as share-based compensation, and management believes, based on discussions with investors, that these non-GAAP measures enhance investors’ ability to assess Medidata’s historical and projected future financial performance. While management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information to investors, there are limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures. One limitation of non-GAAP operating income is that it excludes depreciation and amortization, which represents the periodic costs of certain capitalized tangible and intangible assets used in generating revenues in our business. Medidata compensates for these limitations by using these non-GAAP financial measures as supplements to GAAP financial measures and by reviewing the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable GAAP financial measures. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP results, which are attached to this press release.

(1) Amount represents the effect of changes in fair value of contingent consideration liability.
(2) During the third quarter of 2013, we issued $287.5 million in convertible senior notes (the "Notes") with a coupon interest rate of 1.00%. Interest is paid semiannually on February 1 and August 1 over the five-year term of the notes. In connection with the Notes, we are required to recognize non-cash interest expense, including amortization of debt discount and issuance costs, in accordance with accounting guidance for convertible debt that may be settled in cash. We exclude this incremental non-cash interest expense for purposes of calculating adjusted non-GAAP net income. We believe that excluding these expenses from our non-GAAP measures is useful to investors because such incremental non-cash interest expense does not generate a cash outflow for the company and the debt issuance costs do not represent a cash outflow for the company except in the period the Notes were issued; therefore both are not indicative of our continuing operations or meaningful when comparing current results to past results.
(3) Tax impact calculated using a 40% tax rate.
(4) Prior period results have been adjusted to reflect the two-for-one stock split which was effected in the form of a stock dividend in December 2013.
(5) Adjusted non-GAAP diluted earnings per share for the three months ended March 31, 2014 is calculated using non-GAAP diluted weighted average dilutive common shares outstanding, which includes the effect of 3.2 million dilutive potential common shares.
 
The table above presents a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP operating income, net income, and net income per share applicable to common stockholders for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013. Non-GAAP operating income excludes the impact of depreciation, amortization of intangible assets associated with acquisitions, stock-based compensation expense, and adjustment to the fair value of contingent consideration. Adjusted non-GAAP net income excludes the impact of tax affected amortization of intangible assets associated with acquisitions, stock-based compensation expense, adjustment to the fair value of contingent consideration, and non-cash interest expense on convertible senior notes.
