HOLMDEL, N.J., May 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vonage Holdings Corp. (Nasdaq: VG), a global business cloud communications leader, today announced results for the quarter ended March 31, 2020.

“We had a strong first quarter, highlighting the power of our programmable platform strategy,” said Alan Masarek, Chief Executive Officer. “In today’s environment, Vonage’s cloud-based communications services are ever more critical to support the world’s new-normal, requiring remotely-delivered services and remote work environments.”

“Vonage is prepared to navigate these uncertain times given the mission-critical nature of our offerings. While we expect some short-term financial impacts from COVID-19, this is a defining moment for Vonage. We believe COVID will accelerate the digital transformation of the global economy, and Vonage is well-positioned to aid in that transition.”

Masarek continued, “I'm proud of our team’s response to the crisis, and I want to thank our employees for their commitment during these unprecedented times. Our business continuity plans were enacted virtually overnight, and our own technology seamlessly enabled more than 2,400 Vonage remote offices across the globe, keeping Vonage’s business functioning smoothly so our employees could focus on helping our customers.”

  • Service Revenues from Enterprise Applications customers (those with greater than $120,000 of ARR) grew 21% in the first quarter of 2020.
  • Service Revenues from Mid-market plus Enterprise Applications customers (those with greater than $12,000 of ARR) grew 14% in the first quarter of 2020.
  • Bookings from Midmarket plus Enterprise Applications customers represented 64% of total bookings in the first quarter of 2020 versus 62% in the previous quarter.
  • High-Value API revenues grew at nearly 70% in the first quarter of 2020, driven by strength in programmable video.
  • Business Service Revenue per Customer was $475 per month, up 16% from the year-ago quarter.
  • Business Service Revenue Churn was 0.8%, down from 1.2% in the year-ago quarter.

First Quarter 2020 Consumer Segment Results

  • Consumer Revenues were $87 million, down 13% compared to the year-ago quarter.
  • Customer churn was 1.8%, 0.1% better than the year-ago quarter.
  • Average revenue per line ("ARPU") was $27.35, up $0.92 compared to the year-ago quarter.
  • Ended the quarter with approximately 1 million Consumer subscriber lines.
  • 92% of these customers are tenured over two years and 74% are tenured over five years.

Consolidated Income and Balance Sheet
For the first quarter of 2020, Vonage reported consolidated revenues of $297 million, up from $280 million in the year-ago quarter.  GAAP net loss was $4 million, or ($0.02) per share, versus a loss of $1 million in the prior-year period, or ($0.00) per share. First-quarter adjusted net income(1) was $12 million or $0.05 per share, a decrease from $15 million or $0.06 per share in the prior-year period.

For the first quarter, the Company generated Adjusted EBITDA(2) of $39 million, and Adjusted EBITDA minus Capex(2) of $26 million. Net Cash from Operations was $3 million and Free Cash Flow(3) was negative $11 million for the quarter as annual bonuses and equity tax settlement payments are made in this quarter. As of March 31, 2020 the Company had a Net Debt to Last Twelve Months Adjusted EBITDA ratio of 3.4 times.

Update on Strategic Review of Consumer Segment
As announced in February, the Company initiated a strategic review of its Consumer Segment, including the feasibility of its divestiture, to further the Company’s goal of becoming a pure-play Business SaaS company. This review is underway and the Company will provide updates as appropriate.

Updated 2020 and Second Quarter Outlook
The Company is updating its 2020 guidance to reflect the estimated impact of the COVID-19 crisis based on information available today. The Company is seeing positive catalysts as evidenced by surging video API usage and lower Applications churn. However, in the short term, these positive catalysts are being offset by elevated levels of payment deferrals and credits, some install delays, and demand declines in hospitality- and travel-related sectors. While some customers are accelerating their move to the cloud for business continuity, others are putting that decision on hold to focus on their business operations.

For the full year 2020, Vonage now expects the following, (based on constant currency as of May 2020):

  • Consolidated revenues in the range of $1.180 billion to $1.205 billion
  • Total Business Segment Revenues in the range of $855 million to $880 million (which includes approximately $17 million of USF revenues)
  • Total Consumer Segment Revenues in the $325 million area (which includes approximately $34 million of USF revenues)
  • Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA of between $150 to $155 million
  • Capex in the $60 million area

For the second quarter of 2020, Vonage expects the following:

  • Consolidated Revenues in the range of $295 million to $298 million
  • Total Business Segment Revenues in the range of $213 million to $216 million (which includes approximately $4 million of USF revenues)
  • Total Consumer Revenues in the $82 million area (which includes approximately $8 million of USF revenues)
  • Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA in the $36 million area.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by Regulation G adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission, including: adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA less Capex, adjusted net income, constant currency, net debt (cash), and free cash flow.

Adjusted EBITDA

Vonage uses adjusted EBITDA as a principal indicator of the operating performance of its business.

Vonage defines adjusted EBITDA as GAAP net income (loss) before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization, share-based expense, amortization of costs to implement cloud computing arrangements, acquisition related transaction and integration costs, organizational transformation costs and other non-recurring items. The costs identified as “organizational transformation” are related to the Company’s announced goal of becoming a pure-play Business software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) company, offering a suite of communications solutions for businesses. These costs include employee related exits, system change management, facility exit costs, and rebranding.

Vonage believes that adjusted EBITDA permits a comparative assessment of its operating performance, relative to its performance based on its GAAP results, while isolating the effects of interest, tax, depreciation and amortization, which may vary from period to period without any correlation to underlying operating performance; of share-based expense, which is a non-cash expense that also varies from period to period; of one-time acquisition related transaction and integration costs, organizational transformation costs and other non-recurring items. Organizational transformation consists principally of costs in connection with exits of employees and facilities, system migration costs and certain professional related fees.  Other non-recurring items principally include certain litigation charges and other non-recurring project costs.

The Company provides information relating to its adjusted EBITDA so that investors have the same data that the Company employs in assessing its overall operations. The Company believes that trends in its adjusted EBITDA are valuable indicators of the operating performance of the Company on a consolidated basis.

The Company does not reconcile its forward-looking adjusted EBITDA to the corresponding GAAP measure of net income because stock-based compensation expense and other non-recurring items cannot be reasonably calculated or predicted at this time as they may be significantly impacted by future events, the timing and nature of which cannot be reasonably calculated or predicted at this time.  Accordingly, a reconciliation is not available without unreasonable effort.

Adjusted EBITDA less Capex

Vonage uses adjusted EBITDA less Capex as an indicator of the operating performance of its business. The Company provides information relating to its adjusted EBITDA less Capex so that investors have the same data that the Company employs in assessing its overall operations. The Company believes that trends in its Adjusted EBITDA less Capex are valuable indicators of the operating performance of the Company on a consolidated basis because they provide our investors with insight into current performance and period-to-period performance.

Adjusted net income

Vonage defines adjusted net income, as GAAP net income (loss) excluding amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, amortization of costs to implement cloud computing arrangements, acquisition related transaction and integration costs, amortization of debt discount, organizational transformation costs, other non-recurring items and tax effect on adjusting items.

The Company believes that excluding these items will assist investors in evaluating the Company's operating performance and in better understanding its results of operations as amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets is a non-cash item, one-time acquisition related transaction and integration costs, organizational transformation, other non-recurring items, and tax effect on adjusting items are not reflective of operating performance.  Organizational transformation consists principally of costs in connection with exits of employees and facilities, system migration costs and certain related professional fees.  Other non-recurring items principally include certain litigation charges and other non-recurring project costs.

Constant Currency

Vonage reviews its results of operations on both an as reported and on a constant currency basis. The constant currency presentation, which is a non-GAAP measure, excludes the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. We believe providing constant currency information provides valuable supplemental information regarding our results of operations, consistent with how we evaluate our performance. We calculate constant currency percentages by converting our current period local currency financial results using the prior period exchange rates and comparing these adjusted amounts to our prior period reported results.

Net debt (cash)

Vonage defines net debt (cash) as indebtedness under revolving credit facility, convertible senior notes, discount on debt, and debt related costs less unrestricted cash.

Vonage uses net debt (cash) as a measure of assessing leverage, as it reflects the gross debt under the Company's credit agreements and capital leases less cash available to repay such amounts. The Company believes that net cash is also a factor that first parties consider in valuing the Company.

Free cash flow

Vonage defines free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities minus capital expenditures, purchase of intangible assets, and acquisition and development of software assets.

Vonage considers free cash flow to be a liquidity measure that provides useful information to management about the amount of cash generated by the business that, after the acquisition of equipment and software, can be used by Vonage for debt service and strategic opportunities. Free cash flow is not a measure of cash available for discretionary expenditures since the Company has certain non-discretionary obligations such as debt service that are not deducted from the measure.

The non-GAAP financial measures used by Vonage may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies due to differences in accounting policies and items excluded or included in the adjustments, which limits its usefulness as a comparative measure. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results.

The Company does not reconcile its forward-looking adjusted business total revenue and adjusted business service revenue to the corresponding GAAP measures due to the significant variability and difficulty in making accurate forecasts with respect to the various acquisition-related and one-time events that we exclude, as they may be significantly impacted by future events the timing and nature of which are difficult to predict or are not within the control of management.  As such, the Company has determined that reconciliations of these forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the corresponding GAAP measures is not available without unreasonable effort.
