http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnvar/20131113/SF16521LOGO

"We delivered strong results in the quarter and exceeded guidance on revenue, billings and earnings per share. We grew revenue 11% year-over-year and more than doubled our non-GAAP earnings when compared with the first quarter of last year," said BJ Jenkins, president and CEO. "Our performance in the quarter was largely driven by execution on our strategy, which includes focusing our efforts to be the leader in security and data protection for our customers and expanding our routes to market, specifically in the MSP and public cloud channels. We made solid progress on these initiatives in the first quarter, and as a result, we believe we are building market momentum, and expect continued growth in our core product areas and in our bottom-line."

First Quarter Fiscal 2017 Financial Summary

Total revenue increased 11% to $86.7 million, compared with $78.0 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2016. Recurring subscription revenue grew to $65.3 million, up 20% from $54.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2016, representing 75% of total revenue, and Appliance revenue was $21.3 million, compared with $23.7 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2016.

Gross billings were $98.2 million, compared with $94.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2016. The number of active subscribers grew approximately 14% to over 286,000 and the dollar-based renewal rate was 93% for the quarter.

GAAP net income was $2.8 million, or $0.05 per share, based on a diluted share count of 52.9 million, compared to a GAAP net loss of $3.8 million, or $0.07 per share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2016.

Non-GAAP net income was $10.7 million, or $0.20 per share, based on a diluted share count of 52.9 million. Non-GAAP net income excludes $7.9 million in stock-based compensation expense, $1.9 million in amortization of intangibles, $1.3 million of income tax effect, $1.0 million in other income and $0.4 million in acquisition and other non-recurring charges.

Management Changes

As previously announced, Hatem Naguib and Ezra Hookano have joined Barracuda as vice presidents to drive the security business and channel management, respectively, as well as strengthen the leadership team and drive focus in our strategic areas.

After over ten successful years with Barracuda, David Faugno will be stepping down as CFO on August 1, and Dustin Driggs, Barracuda’s chief accounting officer and worldwide controller since 2012, will replace Faugno as Barracuda’s CFO. "Dave has helped build Barracuda from its earliest days to become the business that so many of our customers rely upon today," said Jenkins. "His contributions to our success have been significant, not the least of which is the tremendous team he has built and grown. He has been grooming Dustin for this position as part of our succession planning, and he and I are confident that Dustin will do a great job leading the organization through its next chapter. We are also fortunate to have Dave continue to help us as an advisor to support a smooth transition."

Driggs has been with Barracuda since 2007, and prior to joining Barracuda, worked at Cisco Systems, Inc. in a variety of financial leadership roles. Driggs began his career in public accounting with Coopers and Lybrand and holds a B.S. in Accounting from Loyola Marymount University and an M.B.A. from Santa Clara University.

Forward-Looking Statements This announcement contains forward-looking statements related to our strategy and focus areas, and potential results from new initiatives and new channels and go-to-market strategies that involve risks and uncertainties, including statements regarding our expectations regarding financial performance, the potential impact of our new and updated products. Actual results could differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements as a result of certain risk factors, including, but not limited to: fluctuations in demand for our products and services; a highly competitive business environment for network security and storage solutions; the company’s effectiveness in controlling expenses; the effects of significant developments in IT infrastructure deployments, particularly cloud computing; the impact of foreign currency fluctuations; the possibility that we might experience delays in the development of new technology and products; risks related to pending or future acquisitions; customer response to our new technology and products; risks related to pending or future litigation and regulatory matters; a dependency on third parties for certain components of our products and the impact of changes in our management team. The company undertakes no obligation to update the forward-looking information in this release. More information about potential factors that could affect our business and financial results is included in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including, without limitation, under the captions: "Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations," and "Risk Factors," which are on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures Barracuda provides all financial information required in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, we are also providing with this press release non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP operating income, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted free cash flow. In preparing our non-GAAP information, we have excluded certain amounts as set forth in the attached financial tables and footnotes. We believe that excluding these items provides both management and investors with additional insight into our current operations and the trends affecting the company. In particular, management finds it useful to exclude these items in order to more readily correlate the company’s operating activities with the company’s ability to generate cash from operations. Accordingly, management uses these non-GAAP measures, along with the comparable GAAP information, in evaluating our historical performance and in planning our future business activities. Please note that our non-GAAP measures may be different than those used by other companies. The additional non-GAAP financial information we present should be considered in conjunction with, and not as a substitute for, our financial information presented in accordance with GAAP. We have provided a non-GAAP reconciliation of the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations for the periods presented in this release, which exclude certain amounts as set forth in the attached financial tables and footnotes for these periods. These measures should only be used to evaluate the company’s results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures for comparable financial information and understanding of the company’s ongoing performance as a business. Barracuda uses both GAAP and non-GAAP measures to evaluate and manage its operations.

(1)
Amortization of Intangible Assets.We provide non-GAAP information which excludes expenses for the amortization of intangible assets, as well as certain losses on disposal and impairment of such assets, that primarily relate to purchased intangible assets associated with our acquisitions. We believe that eliminating this expense from our non-GAAP measures is useful to investors, because the amortization of intangible assets can be inconsistent in amount and frequency and is significantly impacted by the timing and magnitude of our acquisition transactions, which also vary in frequency from period to period. Accordingly, we analyze the performance of our operations in each period without regard to such expenses.
(2)
Depreciation Expense. We provide non-GAAP information which excludes depreciation expense related to the amortization of property and equipment, as well as certain losses from disposal of such assets. We believe that eliminating this expense from our non-GAAP measures is useful to investors, because the acquisition of property and equipment, and the corresponding depreciation expense, can be inconsistent in amount and can vary from period to period.
(3)
Stock-Based Compensation Expense. We provide non-GAAP information which excludes expenses for stock-based compensation. We believe the exclusion of this item allows for financial results that are more indicative of our continuing operations. We believe that the exclusion of stock-based compensation expense provides for a better comparison of our operating results to prior periods and to our peer companies as the calculations of stock-based compensation vary from period to period and company to company due to different valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of award types.
(4)
Acquisition and Other Non-Recurring Charges. We exclude certain expense items resulting from acquisitions and other non-recurring charges, which we do not expect to recur in our continuing operating results. We believe that adjusting for these charges allows us to better compare results from period to period in order to assess the ongoing operating results of our business. The charges include: (i) costs and settlements associated with an internal investigation of export control compliance and (ii)
legal, valuation consulting and other expenses incurred in connection with acquisitions, the fair value remeasurements of contingent considerations, the payments made under the terms of certain acquisition agreements and other non-recurring expenses.
(5)
Income Tax Effect of Non-GAAP Exclusions. We believe providing financial information with and without the income tax effect of excluding items related to our non-GAAP financial measures provide our management and users of the financial statements with better clarity regarding the ongoing performance and future liquidity of our business. Excluded items include, but are not limited to: (i) amortization expense of intangible assets, (ii) stock-based compensation expense, (iii) acquisition and other non-recurring charges, and (iv) quarterly changes to the valuation allowance previously established.
(6)
Other expense (income) adjustments. We provide non-GAAP information that excludes the effect of certain other income and losses. These adjustments consist of realized gains and losses from the sale of marketable securities and foreign currency remeasurement gains and losses. For all non-functional currency account balances, the remeasurement of such balances to the functional currency will result in either a foreign exchange gain or a loss which is recorded in other income (expense), net. We believe that eliminating these items from our non-GAAP measures is useful to investors, because foreign currency remeasurement adjustments can be inconsistent in amount and can vary from period to period.
(7)
Non-GAAP Diluted Earnings Per Share. We provide non-GAAP diluted earnings per share. The non-GAAP diluted earnings per share amount is calculated based on our non-GAAP net income divided by the weighted-average diluted shares outstanding for the period.

(1) Adjusted EBITDA. We define adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) plus increases in deferred revenue and increases in the associated deferred costs, plus non-cash and non-operating charges which include: (i) other expense (income), net, (ii) provision for income taxes, (iii) acquisition and other non-recurring charges, (iv) stock-based compensation expense, (v) amortization of intangible assets, including certain losses on disposal and impairment of intangible assets, and (vi) depreciation expense, including certain losses on disposal of fixed assets. The deferred revenue balances for the periods presented exclude any remaining acquisition date deferred revenue amounts assumed in connection with our acquisition of C2C Systems Limited, which closed in the second quarter of fiscal 2015. We believe adjusted EBITDA provides an indication of profitability from our operations, and provides a consistent measure of our performance from period to period.

(1) Acquisition and Other Non-Recurring Charges. We exclude the cash flow impact resulting from acquisitions and other non-recurring charges, which we do not expect to recur in our continuing operating results. We believe that adjusting for these cash outflows allows us to better compare results from period to period in order to assess the ongoing operating results of our business. The cash flows include: (i) payments associated with an internal investigation of export control compliance and (ii) payments related to legal, valuation consulting and other expenses incurred in connection with acquisitions, as well as the payments under the terms of certain acquisition agreements and other non-recurring expenses.
(2) Adjusted Free Cash Flow. We define adjusted free cash flow as cash flows from operating activities less the purchases of property and equipment plus the cash flow effect of acquisition and other non-recurring charges. We believe that adjusting free cash flow to exclude these charges allows us to better compare results from period to period in order to assess the ongoing free cash flow of our business. We believe adjusted free cash flow is an important liquidity measure that reflects the cash generated by the business after the purchase of property and equipment that can then be used for, among other things, strategic acquisitions, investments in the business and funding ongoing operations.

(1) Gross Billings. We define gross billings as total revenue plus the change in deferred revenue and other adjustments, which primarily consist of returns and reserves with respect to the 30-day right of return we provide to customers, as well as rebates for certain channel partner activities. The deferred revenue balances for the periods presented exclude any remaining acquisition date deferred revenue amounts assumed in connection with our acquisition of C2C Systems Limited, which closed in the second quarter of fiscal 2015. We believe that gross billings provide insight into the sales of our solutions and performance of our business.
(2) In order to determine how our business performed exclusive of the effect of foreign currency fluctuations, we compare the percentage change in our gross billings from one period to another using a constant currency. To present this gross billings information, the current and comparative prior period results for entities that operate in other than U.S. dollars are converted into U.S. dollars at constant exchange rates. For example, the rates in effect at May 31, 2015, which was the last day of our prior fiscal year’s comparable quarter, were used to convert current and comparable prior period gross billings rather than the actual exchange rates in effect during the respective period.
