Qumu Announces Third Quarter 2018 Results, Reports Positive Quarterly Net Income and Reiterates Annual Revenue Guidance

Conference Call Wednesday, October 31, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. ET

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Qumu Corporation (NASDAQ: QUMU) today reported financial results for the third quarter ending September 30, 2018 and reiterated with confidence its 2018 full year revenue guidance. The Company reported net income of $2.4 million for the quarter, which included a $6.5 million gain on the previously announced sale of its investment in BriefCam, Ltd. and reflected improved operating efficiencies resulting from ongoing cost reduction initiatives. The Company also strengthened its balance sheet by paying down its long-term debt by 60%, or $6.0 million, while increasing its cash during the quarter by $3.3 million.

"I’m happy to report positive net income which, along with a strengthened balance sheet and steady improvement in our operating expenses, gives us a solid financial footing for growth,” said Vern Hanzlik, Qumu’s President and CEO. "We remain bullish on the business, due to steadily increasing customer opportunities, increased customer retention of over 90%, plus our expanded footprint in 22 customers. This growing commitment from customers, combined with top leadership rankings by industry analysts tells me Qumu’s strategy is exactly on target with the industry’s direction toward global video solutions based on a distributed computing model."

Third quarter 2018 revenue was $5.7 million, compared to $7.6 million in the third quarter 2017, and net income for the third quarter 2018 was $2.4 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $(2.3) million, or $(0.25) per diluted share, in the third quarter 2017. Third quarter adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, was $(801,000) for the third quarter 2018, compared to $(857,000) for the third quarter 2017.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, revenue was $18.1 million, compared to $20.9 million last year, and net loss was $(3.7) million, or a loss of $(0.39) per diluted share, compared to $(8.5) million, or a loss of $(0.91) per diluted share, last year. For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, adjusted EBITDA was $(3.6) million, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $(3.8) million last year. The year-over-year revenue comparisons were negatively impacted by approximately $153,000 and $577,000 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, respectively, due to the adoption of the new revenue recognition standard (ASC Topic 606).

Other Financial Highlights

  • Cash and cash equivalents totaled $8.5 million as of September 30, 2018, compared to $7.7 million as of December 31, 2017. During the third quarter, the Company used a portion of the $9.6 million in net proceeds from the sale of BriefCam to pay down its long-term debt by $6.0 million and accrued interest by $463,000, while still ending the third quarter with $8.5 million in cash, compared to $5.2 million in cash at June 30, 2018.
  • Operating expenses decreased $1.3 million and $2.6 million during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, respectively, compared to the 2017 periods, reflecting the impact of the Company's ongoing cost reduction initiatives.
  • Software license and appliance revenue was $1.0 million and $1.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, and $4.3 million and $4.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, with the year-to-date increase attributable to both new license sales and expansion of existing customers.
  • Subscription, maintenance and support revenue was $4.1 million and $5.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, and $12.3 million and $15.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. The year-over-year revenue comparisons were negatively impacted by approximately $297,000 and $740,000 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, respectively, due to the adoption of the new revenue recognition standard (ASC Topic 606). Additionally, the loss of a large customer which was previously announced as lost in the fourth quarter 2017, negatively impacted the year-over-year revenue comparisons by $858,000 and $2.4 million in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, respectively.
  • Gross margin for the third quarter 2018 was 62.6%, compared to 61.6% for the third quarter 2017. Gross margin for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was 63.4%, compared to 62.8% for the nine months ended September 30, 2017.

Given the performance to date and sales pipeline, the Company remains confident in the achievement of its previously issued revenue guidance for the full year 2018. Annual bookings growth is expected to be 20% to 25% in 2018, emphasizing growth in sales of the Qx platform. Revenue for 2018 is expected to be approximately $25 million, which includes an approximately $1.1 million unfavorable revenue impact due to the adoption of the new revenue recognition standard (ASC Topic 606) in 2018, as well as the loss of a large customer in the fourth quarter 2017, representing revenue of approximately $3.2 million annually. Gross margin percentage is expected to be in the mid to high 60s. Adjusted EBITDA for 2018 is expected to be approximately $(3.5) million, which is unchanged from previously issued guidance. The Company expects to achieve positive adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, in the fourth quarter 2018. Adjusted EBITDA for 2018 excludes other income (expense) of $5.3 million reflecting the sale of BriefCam, Ltd. and paydown of term debt in the third quarter 2018, the change in fair value of warrant liabilities and net losses on foreign currency transactions, stock-based compensation expense of approximately $1.1 million, amortization of acquired intangible assets of approximately $2.1 million, depreciation expense of approximately $0.5 million, income tax expense of approximately $0.3 million, and interest expense of approximately $1.8 million. Net loss for 2018 is expected to be approximately $4.0 million, which includes the results for the nine months ended September 30, 2018.

Conference Call
The Company has scheduled a conference call and webcast to review its third quarter 2018 results tomorrow, October 31, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time.

Non-GAAP Information
To supplement the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, the Company uses adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, which excludes certain items from net income (loss), a GAAP measure. Adjusted EBITDA excludes items related to interest income and expense, the impact of income-based taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, change in fair value of warrant liabilities, foreign currency gains and losses, the gain on the sale of BriefCam, the loss on extinguishment of debt and other non-operating income and expenses.

The Company uses both GAAP and non-GAAP measures when planning, monitoring, and evaluating the Company’s performance. The Company believes that adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors because it provides supplemental information that allows investors to review the Company's results of operations from the same perspective as management and the Company's board of directors. Non-GAAP results are presented for supplemental informational purposes only for understanding our operating results. The non-GAAP results should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

See the attached Supplemental Financial Information for a reconciliation of net income (loss), a GAAP measure, to adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017.
