8x8, Inc. Announces Third Quarter Fiscal 2013 Results

SAN JOSE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

8x8, Inc. (NASDAQ: EGHT), provider of innovative cloud-based business communications and computing solutions, today announced record financial operating results for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 ended December 31, 2012.

Third Quarter Fiscal 2013 Financial Highlights:

  • Total revenue for the quarter increased 17% year-over-year to a record $27.3 million from $23.3 million in the same period of fiscal 2012.
  • Revenue from business customers grew 22.2% during the quarter from the same period last year and comprised 97% of total revenue for the quarter.
  • Overall gross margin was 68.3% compared with 67.8% in the prior quarter and 67.9% in the same period last year.
  • Service gross margin was 78.1%, compared with 75.9% in the prior quarter and 76.9% in the same period last year.
  • GAAP net income was $1.9 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, compared with $2.6 million, or $0.04 per share, for the same period last year.
  • Non-GAAP net income (as outlined in the reconciliation table below) was $3.8 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, compared with $3.7 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, in the same period a year ago.
  • Ended the quarter with $46.5 million in cash, cash equivalents and investments compared with $40.1 million in the prior quarter and $21.9 million on December 31, 2011.
  • Cash flow from operating activities was $6.6 million for the quarter compared with $3.2 million in the same period last year.

"I am pleased to report another quarter of record revenue along with a substantial uptick in our service margins," said 8x8 Chairman & CEO Bryan Martin. "Our focus on service margin improvement combined with our continued double-digit revenue growth and consistent profitability are a testament to 8x8's ability to deliver advanced cloud-based services in a highly efficient and profitable manner to a continually growing base of larger customers."

Third Quarter Fiscal 2013 Operating Metrics and Other Business Highlights:

  • Average revenue per business customer increased to $260 per month, compared with $256 in the prior quarter and $239 in the same period last year.
  • For new customers added during the December quarter, the average number of subscribed services grew to 17.0 from 14.7 in the prior quarter and 14.1 in the same period last year.
  • Average number of subscribed services per business customer grew to 11.2 from 10.6 services in the prior quarter and 9.4 in the same period last year.
  • Monthly business customer count churn for the quarter was 1.6% compared with 2.4% in the prior quarter and 2.0% in the same period last year; monthly business service revenue churn for the December quarter increased to 2.6% from 1.0% in the prior quarter, compared with 1.9% in the same period last year.
  • Ended the quarter with 31,473 business customers, up from 30,498 business customers in the prior quarter, a net increase of 975 business customers for the quarter.
  • Awarded two new U.S. communications patents related to network and mobile technologies; the company has been awarded 85 U.S. patents since inception.
  • Recognized in the "Leaders" quadrant of Gartner's 2012 Magic Quadrant for Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) (see http://business.8x8.com/OL-Research-GartnerMagicQuadrant.html).
  • Launched our complete suite of hosted telephony and unified communications services in Canada as phase one of our Global Reach initiative.

"The significant jump in the number of services subscribed to by our new customers this quarter clearly shows the success 8x8 is having in penetrating the upper end of the small and medium business segment," Martin continued. "The trust that larger businesses are placing in 8x8 by allowing us to provide mission critical services not only underscores the cost savings and innovation we provide, but also our ability to provide these advanced services in a high quality and highly available manner. The inclusion of 8x8 as one of the leaders in Gartner's Magic Quadrant further confirms our leading position in the UCaaS industry."

"While we often see some seasonality for increased churn in the December quarter due to the end of the tax year, business customer churn was at its lowest quarterly levels ever at 1.6%. Revenue churn, which generally lags customer churn, did increase during the third fiscal quarter due primarily to specific issues with a handful of customers unrelated to 8x8 service," continued Martin. "Overall, our revenue and customer growth continues to vastly outpace our churn, and, as evident in our operating metrics, we continue to see expanding growth opportunities with both new and current customers as they take on additional services."

  • Total revenue for the nine months ended December 31, 2012, increased 28% year over year to $79 million from $62 million in the same period of fiscal 2012.
  • GAAP net income for the nine months ended December 31, 2012, was $12.3 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, compared with $5.4 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, for the same period last year.

Non-GAAP Measures

We have provided in this release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). We use these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing our financial results and believe they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating our ongoing operational performance. We believe that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating our ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing our financial results with other companies in our industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures below. A reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures has been provided in the financial statement tables included below in this press release.

Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share

We have defined non-GAAP net income as net income for GAAP plus loss on investment, non-cash tax adjustments, stock-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquisition-related costs, facility exit costs and gain on patent sale. We have excluded loss on a strategic investment in another company and gain on patent sale because we consider these to be isolated transactions and believe these are not reflective of our ongoing operations. Non-cash tax adjustments represent the differences between the amount of taxes we expect to pay and our GAAP tax provision each period. We have excluded stock-based compensation expense because it relies on valuations based on future events, such as the market price of our common stock, that are difficult to predict and are affected by market factors that are largely not within the control of management. Amortization of acquired intangible assets is excluded because it is a non-cash expense that we do not consider part of ongoing operations when assessing our financial performance, as it relates to accounting for certain purchased assets. We have excluded acquisition-related expenses, including expenses to exit facilities, because these expenses are difficult to predict and are often one-time. We define non-GAAP net income per share as non-GAAP net income divided by the weighted-average diluted shares outstanding. We define non-GAAP net income percentage of revenue as non-GAAP net income divided by revenue. The GAAP and non-GAAP weighted average number of diluted shares to calculate GAAP and non-GAAP earnings per share are the same. We believe that such exclusions facilitate comparisons to our historical operating results and to the results of other companies in the same industry, and provides investors with information that we use in evaluating management's performance on a quarterly and annual basis.

The simple average number of business customers during the period is the number of business customers on the first day of the period plus the number of business customers on the last day of the period divided by two. In the second quarter of fiscal 2013, an affiliate with 411 business customers representing approximately $9,000 of monthly service revenue cancelled service. Excluding these 411 cancellations, business customer churn (less cancellations within 30 days of sign-up) was 1.9%.
 
(3) Business customers are defined as customers paying for service. Customers that are currently in the 30- day trial period are considered to be customers that are paying for service. Customers subscribing to Virtual Office Solo or Zerigo services are not included as business customers.
 
(4) Business customer average monthly service revenue per customer is service revenue from business customers in the period divided by the number of months in the period divided by the simple average number of business customers during the period.
 
(5) Business subscriber acquisition cost per service is defined as the combined costs of advertising, marketing, promotions, sales commissions and equipment subsidies for business services sold during the period divided by the number of gross business services added during the period.
 
(6) Total new services sold in the period divided by gross business customer additions.
