ZixCorp Announces 2013 Fourth Quarter and Year-End Results

DALLAS --(Business Wire)--

Zix Corporation (NASDAQ: ZIXI), a leader in email data protection, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended Dec. 31, 2013.

Fourth Quarter 2013 Financial Highlights

  • Fourth quarter new first year orders of $2.3 million
  • Fourth quarter revenue of $12.3 million, an increase of 5.3% year-over-year, the Company's 20th consecutive quarterly record in revenue
  • Fourth quarter GAAP net income of $0.08 per share, an increase of 19.5% year-over-year (1)
  • Fourth quarter Non-GAAP net income of $0.06 per share, an increase of 24.9% year-over-year (1) (3)
  • The Company generated approximately $3.5 million in cash flow from operations, an increase of $3.1 million year-over-year

Full-Year 2013 Financial Highlights

  • Ending backlog of $65.7 million, an increase of 13.9% from the prior year end and a record high for the Company
  • Full-year new first year orders of $9.0 million, flat in comparison to the prior year (0.3% increase) despite what we currently believe to be a temporary slow-down of new sales from our largest OEM partner
  • Full-year revenue of $48.1 million, an increase of 11.0% year-over-year and a record high for the Company
  • Full-year GAAP net income of $0.17 per share, down $0.01 year-over-year due to changes in deferred tax valuation allowances (1)
  • Full-year Non-GAAP net income of $0.19 per share, an increase of 4.8% year-over-year and a record high for the Company (1) (3)
  • The Company generated approximately $13.3 million in cash flow from operations for the full year ended Dec. 31, 2013, an increase of $0.8 million year-over-year
  • Cash and cash equivalents at year-end was $27.5 million, despite $8.9 million spent on share repurchases during 2013. This $27.5 million is an increase of $4.5 million compared to the ending cash balance for 2012

"Zix achieved a new milestone in 2013 successfully launching two new solutions - ZixOne and ZixDLP - building on our reputation as a leader in email data protection. With ZixOne, we entered the Bring-Your-Own-Device market, one of the hottest trends to emerge in IT. Our next generation approach allows employees to access corporate data in the cloud rather than downloading the corporate data to their personal devices where it can be lost or stolen. This approach maximizes corporate data security and leaves employees in complete control of their personal information. We introduced these new products and, at the same time, delivered new record backlog, revenue and adjusted earnings per share," said Rick Spurr, ZixCorp's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We are proud of what we accomplished last year and excited about 2014. We believe that our leadership in and reputation for innovative, easy-to-use technology combined with increased investments in sales and marketing will enable us to gain momentum in the Bring-Your-Own-Device market and further expand adoption of our email encryption and DLP solutions."

Fourth Quarter Business Highlights

  • The Company's board of directors approved a share repurchase program that enables the Company to purchase up to $15 million of its shares of common stock from time to time in the open market. The share repurchase program is scheduled to expire on June 30, 2014

Outlook

Beginning in the first quarter of 2014, the Company expects to meaningfully increase its investment in sales and marketing. These investments are aimed at increasing momentum of ZixOne in the Bring-Your-Own-Device market and to further expand adoption of our email encryption and DLP solutions. The new sales benefits from these investments, if successful, would begin in 2014 while much of the revenue benefits would be deferred until 2015 due to revenue recognition timing of the Company's subscription model. Taking this into consideration, for the first quarter 2014, the Company forecasts revenue to be between $12.2 million and $12.5 million and fully diluted adjusted earnings per share to be between $0.02 and $0.03. Full-year 2014 revenue is projected to be between $53 million and $55 million. Fully diluted Non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share, which are adjusted primarily for non-cash stock-based compensation and non-recurring expense items, are projected to be between $0.15 and $0.17.

This presentation includes Non-GAAP measures. Our Non-GAAP measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. For a detailed explanation of the adjustments made to comparable GAAP measures, the reasons why management uses these measures, the usefulness of these measures and the material limitations of these measures, see items (A) through (D) on the next page.

ZIX CORPORATION NOTES TO RECONCILIATION OF GAAP TO NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION

The Company occasionally utilizes financial measures and terms not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP") in order to provide investors with an alternative method for assessing our operating results in a manner that enables investors to more thoroughly evaluate our current performance as compared to past performance. We also believe these Non-GAAP measures provide investors with a more informed baseline for modeling the Company's future financial performance. Management uses these Non-GAAP financial measures to make operational and investment decisions, to evaluate the Company's performance, to forecast and to determine compensation. Further, management utilizes these performance measures for purposes of comparison with its business plan and individual operating budgets and allocation of resources. We believe that our investors should have access to, and that we are obligated to provide, the same set of tools that we use in analyzing our results. These Non-GAAP 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. We have provided definitions below for certain Non-GAAP financial measures, together with an explanation of why management uses these measures and why management believes that these Non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors. In addition, in our earnings release we have provided tables to reconcile the Non-GAAP financial measures utilized to GAAP financial measures.

ADJUSTED NON-GAAP MEASURES

Our Non-GAAP measures adjust GAAP Cost of revenue, Gross profit, Research and development expense, Selling and marketing expense, General and administrative expense, Operating income, Net income, Net income per share - diluted, and EBITDA for non-cash stock-based compensation expense, and non-recurring litigation expense to derive Non-GAAP adjusted Cost of revenue, adjusted Gross profit, adjusted Research and development expense, adjusted Selling and marketing expense, adjusted General and administrative expense, adjusted Operating income, adjusted Net income, adjusted Net income per share - diluted and adjusted EBITDA. We provide a reconciliation of these adjusted Non-GAAP measures to GAAP Gross profit, Operating income, Net income, Net income per share - diluted and EBITDA.

We do not provide a reconciliation of forward-looking adjusted Non-GAAP earnings per share to GAAP earnings per share. Our forward-looking adjusted Non-GAAP earnings per share information consistently excludes non-cash stock-based compensation expense. Additionally, the adjusted Non-GAAP earnings per share will consistently exclude non-recurring items that impact our ongoing business. See items (A) through (C) below for further information on the current quarter's reconciling items.

Items (A) through (D) on the "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures" table are listed to the right of certain categories under "Gross profit," "Operating income," "Net income," "Net income per share - diluted" and "EBITDA" and correspond to the categories explained in further detail below under (A) through (D).

(A) Non-cash stock-based compensation charges relating to stock option grants, restricted stock, and restricted stock units awarded to and accounted for in accordance with Share-Based Payment accounting guidance. See (1) on previous page for breakdown of stock-based compensation. Because of varying valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and varying award types, the Company believes that the exclusion of stock-based compensation charges provides for more accurate comparisons to our peer companies and for a more accurate comparison of our financial results to previous periods. Additionally, the Company believes it is useful to investors to understand the specific impact of non-cash stock-based compensation charges on our operating results.

(B) Non-recurring litigation costs. See item (2) on previous page for breakdown of non-recurring litigation costs. The Company's management excludes these costs when evaluating the ongoing performance and/or predicting its earnings trends and therefore excludes these charges on our adjusted operating results.

(C) The Non-GAAP adjustment to the tax provision represents the non-cash tax expense included in the GAAP tax provision, including the current period utilization of deferred tax assets created in previous periods. The remaining provision for income taxes represents expected cash taxes to be paid.

(D) EBITDA represents earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA adds back stock-based compensation and non-recurring litigation expenses.
