Bottomline Technologies Reports Fourth Quarter Results

Strong Growth in Subscription and Transaction Revenue Highlights Fourth Quarter

PORTSMOUTH, N.H., Aug. 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bottomline Technologies (NASDAQ:EPAY), a leading provider of financial technology which helps businesses pay and get paid, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2017.

Subscription and transaction revenues, which are primarily related to the company's cloud platforms, were $59.4 million for the fourth quarter, up 17%, or 20% on a constant currency basis, as compared to the fourth quarter of last year.  Revenues overall for the fourth quarter were $93.5 million.  Constant currency growth is calculated as discussed in the "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" section that follows.

GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter was $5.7 million compared to $5.9 million for the fourth quarter of last year. GAAP net loss per share was $0.15 in the fourth quarter compared to $0.16 in the fourth quarter of last year.

Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter was $20.8 million compared to $18.0 million for the fourth quarter of last year.  Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter was 22% of overall revenue compared to 20% of overall revenue for the fourth quarter of last year. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as discussed in the "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" section that follows.

Core net income for the fourth quarter was $10.6 million compared to $9.2 million for the fourth quarter of last year. Core earnings per share was $0.28 for the fourth quarter compared to $0.24 for the fourth quarter of last year. Core net income and core earnings per share exclude certain items as discussed in the "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" section that follows.

"Our strong results confirm that we are executing well against our strategic plan," said Rob Eberle, President and CEO of Bottomline Technologies. "The fourth quarter was highlighted by strong subscription and transaction revenue growth and represents another step forward towards achieving our longer term financial goals. We enter the new fiscal year with market momentum and a product set that is well positioned to drive our continued growth. We have confidence in our ability to execute against our strategic plan, achieve our financial targets and drive shareholder value."

  • Announced that the Paymode-X electronic payment network has grown to over 365,000 businesses in the network.  Paymode-X processes more than $200 billion in annual spend. The scale of the network and large number of enrolled vendors makes Paymode-X the clear choice for businesses seeking payment automation and payables monetization.

The three day conference provided a unique forum for Bottomline's Legal Spend Management customers to discuss industry developments, share best practices and collaborate with the Bottomline Legal Solutions team.
     
  • Announced the launch of a new payment fraud solution for members of the SWIFT payment network.  The solution is part of a package of measures being offered by Bottomline to help customers meet security requirements from the SWIFT payments cooperative under its recently announced Customer Security Programme (CSP).  Being made available to some of the world's largest banks and financial institutions, the new Bottomline fraud solution goes beyond the mandatory controls to include real-time monitoring of user behavior and individual messages.   

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We have presented supplemental non-GAAP financial measures as part of this earnings release. The presentation of this non-GAAP financial information should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, our financial results presented in accordance with GAAP. Core net income, core earnings per share, constant currency information, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA as a percent of revenue are non-GAAP financial measures.

Core net income and core earnings per share exclude certain items, specifically amortization of acquired intangible assets, goodwill impairment charges, stock-based compensation, acquisition and integration-related expenses, restructuring related costs, minimum pension liability adjustments, non-core charges associated with our convertible notes and revolving credit facility, global enterprise resource planning (ERP) system implementation costs, and other non-core or non-recurring gains or losses that arise from time to time.

Non-core charges associated with our convertible notes and revolving credit facility consist of the amortization of debt issuance and debt discount costs. Acquisition and integration-related expenses include legal and professional fees and other direct transaction costs associated with business and asset acquisitions, costs associated with integrating acquired businesses, including costs for transitional employees or services, integration related professional services costs and other incremental charges we incur as a direct result of acquisition and integration efforts. Global ERP system implementation costs relate to direct and incremental costs incurred in connection with our implementation of a new, global ERP solution and the related technology infrastructure.

In computing diluted core earnings per share, we exclude the effect of shares issuable under our convertible notes to the extent that any such dilution would be offset by our note hedges; the note hedges would be considered an anti-dilutive security under GAAP.

Periodically, such as in periods that include significant foreign currency volatility, we present certain metrics on a "constant currency" basis, to show the impact of period to period results normalized for the impact of foreign currency rate changes. We calculate constant currency information by translating prior period financial results using current period foreign exchange rates.

Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA as a percent of revenue represent our GAAP net income or loss, adjusted for charges related to interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and other charges, as noted in the reconciliation that follows.

We believe that these supplemental non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they allow for an evaluation of the company with a focus on the performance of its core operations, including more meaningful comparisons of financial results to historical periods and to the financial results of less acquisitive peer and competitor companies. Our executive management team uses these same non-GAAP financial measures internally to assess the ongoing performance of the company. Additionally, the same non-GAAP information is used for planning purposes, including the preparation of operating budgets and in communications with our board of directors with respect to our core financial performance. Since this information is not a GAAP measurement of financial performance, there are material limitations to its usefulness on a stand-alone basis, including the lack of comparability of this presentation to the GAAP financial results of other companies.
