Vonage Delivers Strong Second Quarter 2017 Results Highlighted by 44% Vonage Business GAAP Revenue Growth

HOLMDEL, N.J., Aug. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Vonage Holdings Corp. (NYSE: VG), a leading provider of business cloud communications, today announced results for the quarter ended June 30, 2017.

Consolidated Results 

"We had an outstanding second quarter, and we are pleased with the team's performance," said Alan Masarek, Vonage Chief Executive Officer. "We've taken bold steps to transform Vonage into a market leading business cloud communications company. Our value proposition is resonating well, and we are confident that our focus on delivering better business outcomes for our customers will lead to accelerated long-term growth."

"Within Vonage Business, we continue to execute on our priorities to accelerate UCaaS revenue growth within the Mid-market and Enterprise segments, as well as drive strong revenue growth in CPaaS. We also continue to pull the right levers to optimize and extend the value of Consumer Services, highlighted by record low churn."

For the second quarter of 2017, Vonage reported revenues of $252 million, an 8% increase from the year ago quarter. Income from Operations was $7 million, up from $5 million in the prior year. Adjusted Operating Income Before Depreciation and Amortization ("Adjusted OIBDA")1 was $41 million, up from $40 million in the prior year. GAAP net income was $5 million or $0.02 per share, up from $218 thousand or $0.00 per share in the year ago quarter. Adjusted net income2 was $15 million or $0.07 per share, up from $10 million or $0.05 per share in the year ago quarter.

Business Segment Results

  • Vonage Business revenues, which include $35 million of Nexmo revenues, were $124 million. Nexmo revenues include an incremental $3.9 million as the Company determined it is required to report a portion of revenues on a gross rather than net basis. CPaaS organic revenue growth was 44%3.
  • The Company continues to see strong traction from Enterprise customers and signed four Enterprise deals representing $30 million in total contract value in the second quarter.
  • Ending seats at Vonage Business were 683,000, up from 592,000 seats in the year ago quarter, a 15% increase.
  • Vonage Business revenue churn was 1.4%, flat sequentially and from the prior year.
  • The Vonage API Platform increased its registered developers to 309,000, a sequential increase of 61,000, a record number of quarterly developer adds.

Consumer Segment Results

  • Consumer Services revenues were $128 million in the second quarter of 2017 compared to $132 million in the first quarter of 2017. This represents the lowest sequential dollar revenue decline in 13 quarters.
  • Consumer customer churn was a record reported low 1.9%.
  • Average revenue per line ("ARPU") in Consumer Services was $26.33, up from $26.10 sequentially and down from $26.61 in the year ago period.
  • The Consumer segment ended the second quarter with 1.6 million subscriber lines.

Patent Portfolio

Vonage continues to execute on its strategy to develop innovative technologies and to protect its valuable intellectual property. The Company was granted 11 new patents in the second quarter and now has more than 160 U.S. patents.

Guidance Update

Vonage is updating its CPaaS revenue expectations to reflect the Company's requirement to report a portion of Nexmo revenues on a gross rather than net basis, as well as higher organic growth. The Company now expects 2017 Business revenues, which includes both UCaaS and CPaaS, to increase from prior guidance by $15 million, equating to a range of $498 million to $504 million. Corresponding total revenue guidance is likewise adjusted to between $981 million and $996 million. The Company reaffirmed 2017 Adjusted OIBDA guidance of at least $165 million.

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 Operating Income Before Depreciation and Amortization ("adjusted OIBDA"), adjusted OIBDA less Capex, adjusted net income, net debt (cash), free cash flow and adjusted revenues.

Adjusted OIBDA

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

Vonage defines adjusted OIBDA as GAAP income (loss) from operations excluding depreciation and amortization, share-based expense, acquisition related transaction and integration costs, change in contingent consideration, acquisition related consideration accounted for as compensation, organizational transformation costs and loss on sublease.

Vonage believes that adjusted OIBDA permits a comparative assessment of its operating performance, relative to its performance based on its GAAP results, while isolating the effects of 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, acquisition related consideration accounted for as compensation and change in contingent consideration, organizational transformation costs and loss on sublease.

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

The Company does not reconcile its forward-looking adjusted OIBDA to the corresponding GAAP measure of income from operations due to the significant variability and difficulty in making accurate forecasts with respect to the various expenses 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 this forward-looking non-GAAP financial measure to the corresponding GAAP measure is not available without unreasonable effort.

Adjusted OIBDA less Capex

Vonage uses adjusted OIBDA less Capex as an indicator of the operating performance of its business. The Company provides information relating to its adjusted OIBDA 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 OIBDA 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, acquisition related transaction and integration costs, change in contingent consideration, acquisition related consideration accounted for as compensation, loss on sublease 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, change in contingent consideration, acquisition related consideration accounted for as compensation, loss on sublease and tax effect on adjusting items are not reflective of operating performance.

Net debt (cash)

Vonage defines net debt (cash) as the current maturities of capital lease obligations, current portion of notes payable, notes payable and indebtedness under revolving credit facility, net of current maturities and debt related costs, and capital lease obligations, net of current maturities, less unrestricted cash and marketable securities.

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.
