NETSCOUT Reports First Quarter Fiscal Year 2020 Financial Results

WESTFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NETSCOUT SYSTEMS, INC. (NASDAQ: NTCT), a leading provider of service assurance, security, and business analytics, today announced financial results for its first quarter fiscal year 2020 ended June 30, 2019.

“We delivered first-quarter earnings per share performance in-line with our expectations on lower- than-expected revenue as we continued to closely manage our cost structure,” stated Anil Singhal, NETSCOUT’s president and chief executive officer. “While we continue to see constrained spending and elongated purchasing cycles for service providers, we are excited to see more 5G projects surfacing. For example, we received a large order early in our second quarter that we anticipate will be recognized as revenue in the second half of our fiscal year.”

Commenting on the Company’s plans and outlook for fiscal year 2020, Singhal said, “Despite the first-quarter revenue shortfall, we are re-affirming our non-GAAP revenue guidance range of $895 million to $915 million and remain committed to managing our cost structure to deliver non-GAAP EPS within our guidance range of $1.40 to $1.45.”

Notable developments and highlights:

  • In early April, NETSCOUT completed the acquisition of Eastwind Networks which includes new talent in enterprise breach analytics and detection technology expertise furthering our security product development.
  • In mid-April, NETSCOUT held its annual user conference, Engage19, where it showcased its solutions to more than 700 attendees representing many of the world’s largest and most innovative service providers and enterprises, highlighted product roadmaps including new enterprise threat analytics and packet forensics, and provided hands-on tutorial workshops.
  • In mid-July, the Company announced that NETSCOUT received the NorthFace ScoreBoard Award? (NFSB) from Customer Relationship Management Institute LLC (CRMI) after achieving excellence in customer service and support for its NETSCOUT nGeniusONE® Service Assurance solution in 2018. NETSCOUT is a nine-time winner of this award.
  • In late July, NETSCOUT announced the availability of Arbor Threat Analytics (ATA), the industry’s first Network-Based Threat Detection and Analytics Platform to provide complete visibility into today’s multi-cloud environments. The product combines NETSCOUT’s unparalleled access to network intelligence (both on the internet and inside the largest enterprise networks) with its ability to rapidly identify and characterize threats using its extensive experience in traffic monitoring and analytics. As a result, ATA can recognize more threats faster than other tools and can provide rich traffic context for fast triage and forensic investigation. NETSCOUT will showcase Arbor Threat Analytics at the annual Black Hat cyber security show in Las Vegas, NV next week.

Q1 FY20 Financial Results

Total revenue (GAAP) for the first quarter of fiscal year 2020 was $186.0 million, compared with $205.1 million in the same quarter one year ago. Non-GAAP total revenue for the first quarter of fiscal year 2020 was $186.1 million versus $206.0 million in the same quarter one year ago. First-quarter non-GAAP revenue in fiscal year 2019 included $10.4 million attributable to the handheld network test (HNT) tools business that was divested in mid-September 2018. A reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP results is included in the attached financial tables.

Product revenue (GAAP and non-GAAP) for the first quarter of fiscal year 2020 was $75.7 million, which was approximately 41% of total revenue. This compares with first-quarter fiscal year 2019 product revenue (GAAP) of $96.9 million, which was approximately 47% of total revenue, and first-quarter fiscal year 2019 non-GAAP product revenue of $97.3 million, which was approximately 47% of total non-GAAP revenue. First-quarter fiscal year 2019 non-GAAP product revenue included $8.0 million associated with the divested HNT tools business.

Service revenue (GAAP) for the first quarter of fiscal year 2020 was $110.3 million, or approximately 59% of total revenue versus service revenue (GAAP) of $108.2 million, or approximately 53% of total revenue, for the same period one year ago. On a non-GAAP basis, service revenue for fiscal year 2020’s first quarter was $110.4 million, or approximately 59% of total non-GAAP revenue, versus non-GAAP service revenue of $108.7 million, or approximately 53% of total non-GAAP revenue, for the same quarter one year ago. First-quarter fiscal year 2019 non-GAAP service revenue included $2.4 million associated with the divested HNT tools business.

NETSCOUT’s loss from operations (GAAP) was $24.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2020, compared with a loss from operations (GAAP) of $77.1 million in the comparable quarter one year ago. It should be noted that NETSCOUT’s first quarter fiscal year 2019 loss from operations (GAAP) included a non-cash intangible asset impairment charge of $35.9 million related to its handheld tools business which was divested in September 2018. First-quarter fiscal year 2020 non-GAAP EBITDA from operations was $18.9 million, or 10.2% of non-GAAP quarterly revenue, which compares with $15.4 million, or 7.5% of non-GAAP quarterly revenue in the first quarter of fiscal year 2019. The Company’s first-quarter fiscal year 2020 (GAAP) operating margin was -13.1% versus -37.6% in the prior fiscal year’s first quarter. First-quarter fiscal year 2020 non-GAAP income from operations was $12.1 million with a non-GAAP operating margin of 6.5%. This compares with first-quarter fiscal year 2019 non-GAAP income from operations of $7.4 million and a non-GAAP operating margin of 3.6%.

Net loss (GAAP) for the first quarter of fiscal year 2020 was $29.3 million, or $0.38 per share (diluted) versus net loss (GAAP) of $62.5 million, or $0.78 per share, for the first quarter of fiscal year 2019. On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the first quarter of fiscal year 2020 was $5.6 million, or $0.07 per share (diluted), which compares with $2.1 million, or $0.03 per share (diluted), for the first quarter of fiscal year 2019.

As of June 30, 2019, cash and cash equivalents, and short and long-term marketable securities were $443.2 million, compared with $487.0 million as of March 31, 2019 and $459.1 million as of June 30, 2018. During the first quarter of fiscal year 2020, NETSCOUT repurchased 1.3 million shares of its common stock through its share repurchase program at an average price of $25.57 per share, totaling approximately $33.2 million in the aggregate. In addition, during the first quarter, NETSCOUT repaid $50.0 million of debt and now has $500.0 million outstanding on its $1.0 billion revolving credit facility.

Effective April 1, 2019, NETSCOUT adopted the new Lease Accounting Standards Codification Topic 842 (“ASC 842”) using the modified retrospective method and as a result did not adjust comparative periods or modify disclosures in those comparative periods. The adoption of ASC 842 resulted in the recognition of operating lease ROU assets of approximately $68.2 million, operating lease liabilities of approximately $83.2 million and the elimination of deferred rent of approximately $15.0 million. Operating leases are included in the operating lease ROU assets and lease liabilities on the Company’s balance sheet. The adoption of ASC 842 did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated statement of operations, consolidated statement of stockholder’s equity, consolidated statement of comprehensive income (loss) or consolidated statement of cash flows. The new standard had no material impact on liquidity and had no impact on the Company’s debt-covenant compliance under its current debt agreements.

Guidance:

NETSCOUT’s fiscal year 2020 guidance, previously issued in May 2019, is fundamentally unchanged. The Company’s guidance for fiscal year 2020 is as follows:

  • NETSCOUT expects GAAP and non-GAAP revenue in the range of $895 million to $915 million in fiscal year 2020 with organic revenue growth (which excludes the $18.0 million in HNT tools revenue from fiscal year 2019) in the low single digit range.
  • The Company’s fiscal year 2020 GAAP net income per share (diluted) is expected to range from $0.03 to $0.08. NETSCOUT’s fiscal year 2020 non-GAAP net income per share (diluted) performance is expected to range from $1.40 to $1.45.
  • A reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP revenue and net income per share (diluted) for NETSCOUT’s guidance is included in the attached financial tables.

Conference Call Instructions:

NETSCOUT will host a conference call to discuss its first-quarter fiscal year 2020 financial results today at 8:30 a.m. ET. This call will be webcast live through NETSCOUT’s website at https://ir.netscout.com/investors/overview/default.aspx. Alternatively, people can listen to the call by dialing (785) 424-1667. The conference call ID is NTCTQ120. A replay of the call will be available after 12:00 p.m. ET on August 1, 2019 for approximately one week. The number for the replay is (800) 695-2185 for U.S./Canada and (402) 530-9028 for international callers.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information:

To supplement the financial measures presented in NETSCOUT's press release in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"), NETSCOUT also reports the following non-GAAP measures: non-GAAP total revenue, non-GAAP product revenue, non-GAAP service revenue, non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP earnings before interest and other expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) from operations, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP net income per share (diluted). Non-GAAP revenue (total, product and service) eliminates the GAAP effects of acquisitions by adding back revenue related to deferred revenue revaluation. Non-GAAP income from operations includes the aforementioned revenue adjustments and also removes expenses related to the amortization of acquired intangible assets, share-based compensation, restructuring charges, intangible asset impairment charges, loss on divestiture, costs related to new accounting standard implementation, and certain expenses relating to acquisitions including depreciation costs, compensation for post-combination services and business development and integration costs while adding back transitional service agreement income. Non-GAAP EBITDA from operations, which has been presented herein as a measure of NETSCOUT’s performance, includes the aforementioned items related to non-GAAP income from operations and also removes non-acquisition-related depreciation expense. Non-GAAP operating margin is calculated based on the non-GAAP financial metrics discussed above. Non-GAAP net income includes the aforementioned items related to non-GAAP income from operations, and also removes changes in contingent consideration, net of related income tax effects. Non-GAAP diluted net income per share also excludes these expenses as well as the related impact of all these adjustments on the provision for income taxes. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures included in the attached tables within this press release. NETSCOUT also references organic non-GAAP revenue, which includes all of the aforementioned revenue adjustments for non-GAAP revenue and also removes revenue associated with the HNT tools business for comparability purposes with the Company’s quarterly and year-to-date fiscal year 2019 results.

These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with GAAP, should not be considered an alternative for measures prepared in accordance with GAAP (revenue, gross profit, operating margin, net income and diluted net income per share), and may have limitations because they do not reflect all of NETSCOUT’s results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP measures should only be used to evaluate NETSCOUT’s results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures. The presentation of non-GAAP information is not meant to be considered superior to, in isolation from or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with GAAP.

NETSCOUT believes these non-GAAP financial measures will enhance the reader’s overall understanding of NETSCOUT’s current financial performance and NETSCOUT's prospects for the future by providing a higher degree of transparency for certain financial measures and providing a level of disclosure that helps investors understand how the Company plans and measures its own business. NETSCOUT believes that providing these non-GAAP measures affords investors a view of NETSCOUT’s operating results that may be more easily compared to peer companies and also enables investors to consider NETSCOUT’s operating results on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis during and following the integration period of NETSCOUT’s acquisitions. Presenting the GAAP measures on their own, without the supplemental non-GAAP disclosures, might not be indicative of NETSCOUT’s core operating results. Furthermore, NETSCOUT believes that the presentation of non-GAAP measures when shown in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures provides useful information to management and investors regarding present and future business trends relating to its financial condition and results of operations.

NETSCOUT management regularly uses supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate its business and to make operating decisions. These non-GAAP measures are among the primary factors that management uses in planning and forecasting.
