Extreme Networks Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2018 Financial Results

SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Extreme Networks, Inc. ("Extreme") (Nasdaq: EXTR) today released financial results for its fiscal fourth quarter and full fiscal year ended June 30, 2018.

Extreme Networks Logo (PRNewsFoto/Extreme Networks) (PRNewsFoto/Extreme Networks) (PRNewsfoto/Extreme Networks, Inc.)

Fourth Quarter Results: 

  • Fourth quarter revenue was $278.3 million, or an increase of 56% year-over-year.
  • GAAP gross margin for the fourth fiscal quarter was 54.0%, a reduction of 340 basis points year-over-year, and non-GAAP gross margin was 57.6%, an increase of 10 basis points year-over-year.
  • GAAP operating margin for the fourth fiscal quarter was (1.2)% and non-GAAP operating margin was 9.8%, compared to 8.8% and 12.8%, respectively, year-over-year.
  • GAAP net loss for the fourth fiscal quarter was $5.6 million, or $(0.05) per basic share, a decrease of $18.8 million and $0.17 per basic share, year-over-year. Non-GAAP net income was $24.0 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, an increase of $3.6 million and $0.02 per diluted share, year-over-year.

Fiscal Year Results: 

  • Fiscal year revenue was $983.1 million, or an increase of 62% year-over-year.
  • Fiscal year GAAP net loss for the fiscal year was $46.8 million, or $0.41 per basic share, an increase of $45.0 million and $0.39 per basic share, year-over-year. Non-GAAP net income was $78.0 million, or $0.65 per diluted share, or an increase of $20.4 million and $0.13 per diluted share, year-over-year.

"Our FY18 results highlight year-over-year revenue growth and non-GAAP gross margin improvement. We completed two acquisitions during the fiscal year and achieved 5% year-over-year organic revenue growth in our core Extreme wired and wireless business in our fiscal fourth quarter, the fourth quarter in a row of year-over-year organic growth," stated Ed Meyercord, President and CEO of Extreme Networks.

"On June 19, we launched our Smart OmniEdge solution for wired and wireless networks, along with validated designs for the educational, healthcare, and retail verticals. We expect to build on our network edge capabilities throughout fiscal 2019 as the industry embraces 802.11ax technology."

"Looking out into fiscal 2019, we are entering the year with $98 million of cross-sell opportunities after closing $40 million in FY18. However, we are resetting expectations for our data center business, and are taking swift action to rebuild our sales pipeline after a disappointing fiscal fourth quarter, while celebrating some key wins. Last quarter, we completed a digital transformation initiative within our supply chain and vendor managed inventory systems, allowing us to run a much more responsive operation. We are now undertaking an initiative over the next six months to bring our portfolio together and consolidate distribution to improve channel efficiency. We expect this change to impact our revenues for the first two quarters of fiscal 2019 by approximately $30-40 million as compared with prior full-year outlook. We believe these actions will materially improve our operating efficiency and working capital. While we expect the combination of lower anticipated revenue in our data center business and our initiative to consolidate distribution to result in a challenging fiscal first quarter 2019, we expect sequential revenue improvements throughout the fiscal year, and we continue to target a 60% gross margin after fiscal Q1," Meyercord added. 

Lastly, Meyercord added: "We have a strong team with a track record of execution. We stabilized and transformed the original Enterasys acquisition into a growth asset. We transformed the Zebra WLAN business into a growth asset with significantly higher margins. We stabilized the Avaya networking assets where we are projecting growth at significantly higher gross margins.  And now, we are focused on driving growth and higher margins in the data center business we acquired from Brocade. We are investing in our datacenter solutions portfolio and are confident we will be able to grow this business at higher margins. With a growing pipeline of cross-sell opportunities, we have more evidence now than ever before, that our end-to-end networking strategy from the wireless edge to the cloud datacenter will drive overall growth and margin expansion at Extreme."

  • With the adoption of new revenue recognition accounting guidance ("ASC 606") since July 1, FY'18, we have adjusted prior periods. The impact of these adjustments to the balance sheet and income statement, are noted with "As adjusted".
  • Cash and investments ended the quarter at $122.6 million, an increase of $17.3 million from Q3 and a decrease of $7.8 million from Q4 last year. This is driven primarily by the funding and integration of the acquisition of our Campus Fabric and Data Center businesses.
  • Accounts receivable balance ending Q4 was $212.4 million, with days sales outstanding ("DSO") at 69.
  • Q4 ending inventory was $63.9 million, a decrease of $13.9 million from the prior quarter and a decrease of $16.5 million from Q4 last year.
  • Q4 ending debt was $197.8 million, up $19.1 million from Q3 and an increase of $105.1 million from Q4 last year. This was driven primarily by borrowings to fund Extreme's acquisitions of the Campus Fabric and Data Center businesses.

Business Outlook:
Extreme's Business Outlook is based on current expectations. The following statements are forward-looking, and actual results could differ materially based on market conditions and the factors set forth under "Forward-Looking Statements" below.

Non-GAAP Measures of Financial Performance

To supplement the Company's consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, ("GAAP"), Extreme Networks uses non-GAAP measures of certain components of financial performance.  These non-GAAP measures include non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP earnings per diluted share, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses and free cash flow.

Reconciliation to the nearest GAAP measure of all historical non-GAAP measures included in this press release can be found in the tables included with this press release.  In this press release, Extreme Networks also presents its target for non-GAAP expenses, which is expenses less share-based compensation expense, acquisition and integration costs, purchase accounting adjustments, acquired inventory adjustments, restructuring expenses, contingent consideration liability, executive transition costs, litigation, amortization of acquired intangibles, other income, interest expense and income tax.

Non-GAAP measures presented in this press release are not in accordance with or alternative measures prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.  In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles.  Non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with Extreme Networks' results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP.  These non-GAAP measures should only be used to evaluate Extreme Networks' results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures.

Extreme believes these non-GAAP measures when shown in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures to enhance investors' and management's overall understanding of the Company's current financial performance and the Company's prospects for the future, including cash flows available to pursue opportunities to enhance shareholder value.  In addition, because Extreme Networks has historically reported certain non-GAAP results to investors, the Company believes the inclusion of non-GAAP measures provides consistency in the Company's financial reporting.

For its internal planning process, and as discussed further below, Extreme's management uses financial statements that do not include share-based compensation expense, acquisition and integration costs, purchase accounting adjustments, acquired inventory adjustment, amortization of intangibles, restructuring expenses, contingent consideration liability, executive transition costs, litigation, other income, interest expense and income tax.  Extreme's management also uses non-GAAP measures, in addition to the corresponding GAAP measures, in reviewing the Company's financial results.

As described above, Extreme excludes the following items from one or more of its non-GAAP measures when applicable.

Share-based compensation. This expense consists of expenses for stock options, restricted stock and employee stock purchases through its ESPP.  Extreme Networks excludes share-based compensation expenses from its non-GAAP measures primarily because they are non-cash expenses that the Company does not believe are reflective of ongoing cash requirement related to operating results. Extreme Networks expects to incur share-based compensation expenses in future periods.

Acquisition and integration costs. Acquisition and integration costs consist of legal and professional fees related to the acquisition of a) Wireless LAN business, b) Campus Fabric business, c) Data Center business and d) the bargain purchase gain for the capital financing business; Extreme Networks excludes these expenses since they result from an event that is outside the ordinary course of continuing operations.

Purchase accounting adjustments.  Purchase accounting adjustments relating to deferred revenue consists of adjustments to the carrying value of deferred revenue.  We have recorded adjustments to the assumed deferred revenue to reflect only a fulfillment margin and thereby excluding the profit margin and revenue which would have been incurred had Extreme Networks entered into the service contract post-acquisition.

Acquired inventory adjustments.  Purchase accounting adjustments relating to the mark up of acquired inventory to fair value less disposal costs.

Amortization of acquired intangibles.  Amortization of acquired intangibles includes the monthly amortization expense of acquired intangible assets such as developed technology, customer relationships, trademarks and order backlog.  The amortization of the developed technology intangible is recorded in product cost of goods sold, while the amortization for the other intangibles are recorded in operating expenses.  Extreme Networks excludes these non-cash expenses since they result from an intangible asset and for which the period expense does not impact the operations of the business and are non-cash in nature.

Restructuring expenses. Restructuring expenses primarily consist of severance costs for employees which have no benefit to continuing operations and accrued lease costs pertaining to the estimated future obligations for non-cancelable lease payments and accelerated depreciation of leasehold improvements related to excess facilities. Extreme Networks excludes restructuring expenses since they result from events that often occur outside of the ordinary course of continuing operations.

Remeasurement of contingent consideration liability. Remeasurement of contingent consideration liability related to the Data Center business acquisition. 

Executive transition expenses.  Executive transition expenses consist of severance and termination benefits.  The expenses are incurred through execution of pre-established employment contracts with senior executives. 

Litigation expenses. Litigation expenses consist of legal and professional fees and expenses related to our on-going litigation matters.

Other income. Other income consists of the gain on the sale of investments.

Interest expense. Interest expense consists of the loss related to the debt extinguishment that occurred in conjunction with the new credit facility in May 2018 and noncash interest expense accretion related to the Data Center business acquisition contingent consideration liability.

Income tax.  Income tax adjustments relate to the tax impact of reducing the US tax rate applied to deferred tax items pursuant to the recently enacted US tax legislation, as well as the tax benefit resulting from the impairment of a lease acquired from Avaya in Canada and a tax benefit resulting from the restructuring of our foreign operations in Q4.

In addition to the non-GAAP measures discussed above, Extreme uses free cash flow as a measure of operating performance.  Free cash flow represents operating cash flows less net purchase of property and equipment on a GAAP basis.  Extreme considers free cash flows to be a liquidity measure that provides useful information to management and investors about the amount of cash generated by the business after the purchases of property and equipment, which can then be used to, among other things, invest in Extreme's business, make strategic acquisitions, and strengthen the balance sheet.  A limitation of the utility of free cash flows as a measure of financial performance is that it does not represent the total increase or decrease in the Company's cash balance for the period.
