“We ended the year on a high note with a record quarter on many fronts, positioning us extremely well for the future. We will continue to invest in talent and hybrid cloud technology while incubating strategic multi-cloud investments such as Netsil, Beam, and now Frame,” said Dheeraj Pandey, Chairman, Founder and CEO of Nutanix. “Frame increases our addressable market, brings another service to our growing platform, and adds employees with insurgent mindsets who will help us continue to challenge the status quo.”

“The company’s strong achievement of 78 percent non-GAAP gross margin, the best in our history, is the direct result of our successful execution toward a software-defined business model,” said Duston Williams, CFO of Nutanix. “We’re also tracking above our target performance we set using the ‘Rule of 40’ framework, demonstrating our ability to balance growth and cash flow.”

Recent Company Highlights

  • Completed the Acquisition of Frame: Acquired Frame, a leader in cloud-based Windows desktop and application delivery, increasing the company’s addressable market. IDC estimates that the desktops-as-a-service (DaaS) software market is forecast to grow to $3 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate of 32%.2 With the addition of Frame, Nutanix customers will be able to deliver desktops-as-a-service from multiple clouds, combining the consumer-grade simplicity and web-scale design of cloud applications with the functionality of traditional virtual desktop applications.
  • Achieved Milestone of $1 Billion+ in Annual Revenue in Less Than a Decade from Inception: Grew fiscal 2018 revenue to $1.16 billion, excluding $169 million in pass-through hardware revenue eliminated, crossing the $1 billion milestone.
  • Expanded Customer Base Hitting Milestone 10,000+ Customers and Signed Largest Deal in History: Nutanix ended the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 with 10,6103 end-customers, adding 1,000 new end-customers in the quarter. Notably, the company passed an important milestone, adding its 10,000th customer during the quarter. The company also expanded an existing customer engagement by closing a deal greater than $20 million in the quarter, the largest in Nutanix history.
  • Successfully Continued Transition to a Software-Defined Business Model: Grew software and support billings by 66 percent year-over-year in the fourth quarter. Pass-through hardware billings decreased to 9 percent of total billings in the quarter, down from 25 percent in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017.
  • Launched 12 Culture Principles Representative of Company Values: Codified the company’s corporate values with the articulation and launch of 12 culture principles. These principles serve as the foundation for how Nutanix employees work with each other, with partners, and with customers.
  • Added Two New Executives in Key Functions: Prabha Krishna joined Nutanix as the SVP of People and Places, and is responsible for the HR and facilities teams worldwide. In addition, Ben Ravani joined as the SVP of Xi Reliability Engineering to oversee building and operating Xi Cloud Services as well as serve as the General Manager of the Nutanix Seattle site.
  • Introduced New Velocity Program for Scaling Growth in the Mid-Market: The company launched its Velocity channel program in June, aimed at accelerating the selling processes, incentives, and marketing investments for strategic, mid-market focused channel partners. The program provides a frictionless experience for channel partners, giving them more leverage to grow their business.
  • Expanded its Global Workforce: Nutanix has rapidly increased and evolved its operations in India over the past five years and recently ranked second on “India’s Great Mid-Size Workplaces 2018” list. Additionally, the company continues to increase its headcount in Bangalore, Belgrade and Berlin as it further disrupts traditional enterprise IT incumbents with an increasingly global workforce.
  • Certified as the First Hyperconvergence-Based Solution for SAP HANA®: In August, the company received certification from SAP for its AHV hypervisor and Enterprise Cloud OS platform as the first Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) solution to pass SAP's stringent criteria for running production SAP HANA® deployments. With this milestone achievement, customers combine the cost and operational benefits of modernized IT infrastructure with the scale and performance required for SAP HANA. For Nutanix, this presents a significant opportunity to broaden penetration in Global 2000 accounts.

Q1 Fiscal 2019 Financial Outlook

For the first quarter of fiscal 2019, Nutanix expects:

  • Revenue between $295 and $310 million, implying software and support revenue growth of approximately 40-45% YoY;
  • Billings between $370 and $390 million, implying software and support billings growth of 50-55% YoY;
  • Bill-to-revenue ratio of approximately 1.26x;
  • Non-GAAP gross margin between 78% and 79%;
  • Non-GAAP operating expenses between $280 and $290 million;
  • Non-GAAP loss per share between $0.26 and $0.28, using approximately 176 million weighted shares outstanding

First quarter guidance reflects a faster removal of pass-through hardware than originally anticipated, accelerating the reduction of zero margin billings and revenue with the benefit of improved gross margins. Additionally, the Q1 expected bill-to-revenue ratio of 1.26x is higher than street consensus of 1.21x, implying an approximate $12 million in deferred revenue that would have otherwise been in revenue and gross profit.

1The elimination of hardware revenue is based on the estimated cost of hardware in transactions where our customers purchase such hardware directly from our contract manufacturers.

All forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures contained in the section titled "Q1 Fiscal 2019 Financial Outlook" exclude stock-based compensation expense and amortization of intangible assets and may also exclude, as applicable, other special items. The company has not reconciled guidance for non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses and non-GAAP loss per share to their most directly comparable GAAP measures because such items that impact these measures are not within its control and are subject to constant change. While the actual amounts of such items will have a significant impact on the company’s non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses and non-GAAP loss per share, a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure guidance to the corresponding GAAP measures is not available without unreasonable effort.

New Accounting Standard

The Company adopted ASC 606, the new standard related to revenue recognition effective August 1, 2017. Prior period information has been adjusted to reflect the adoption of this new standard.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Other Key Performance Measures

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, we use the following non-GAAP financial and other key performance measures: billings, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP net loss, pro forma non-GAAP net loss per share, free cash flow, software and support revenue, and software and support billings. In computing these non-GAAP financial measures and key performance measures, we exclude certain items such as stock-based compensation and the related income tax impact, costs associated with our acquisitions (such as amortization of acquired intangible assets, revaluation of contingent consideration, income tax-related impact, and other acquisition-related costs), loss on debt extinguishment, amortization of debt discount and issuance costs, changes in the fair value of our preferred stock warrant liability, other non-recurring transactions and the related tax impact and the revenue and billings associated with pass-through hardware. Billings is a performance measure which our management believes provides useful information to investors because it represents the amounts under binding purchase orders received by us during a given period that have been billed, and we calculate billings by adding the change in deferred revenue between the start and end of the period to total revenue recognized in the same period. Free cash flow is a performance measure that our management believes provides useful information to management and investors about the amount of cash generated by the business after necessary capital expenditures, and we define free cash flow as net cash (used in) provided by operating activities less purchases of property and equipment. Non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP net loss, and pro forma non-GAAP net loss per share are financial measures which our management believes provide useful information to investors because they provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our performance and liquidity by excluding certain expenses and expenditures such as stock-based compensation expense that may not be indicative of our ongoing core business operating results. Software and support revenue and software and support billings are performance measures that our management believes provide useful information to our management and investors as it allows us to better track the true growth of our software business by excluding the amounts attributable to the pass-through hardware that we use to deliver our solutions. We use these non-GAAP financial and key performance measures for financial and operational decision-making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. However, these non-GAAP financial and key performance measures have limitations as analytical tools and you should not consider them in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Billings, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP net loss, pro forma non-GAAP net loss per share, and free cash flow are not substitutes for total revenue, gross margin, operating expenses, net loss, net loss per share, or net cash (used in) provided by operating activities, respectively, and software and support revenue and software and support billings are not substitutes for total revenue. In addition, other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate non-GAAP financial measures and key performance measures differently or may use other measures to evaluate their performance, all of which could reduce the usefulness of our non-GAAP financial measures and key performance measures as tools for comparison. We urge you to review the reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures and key performance measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures included below in the tables captioned “Reconciliation of Revenue to Billings,” “Disaggregation of Revenue and Reconciliation of Software and Support Revenue to Software and Support Billings,” “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Profit Measures,” and “Reconciliation of GAAP Net Cash (Used In) Provided By Operating Activities to Non-GAAP Free Cash Flow,” and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.
