Zix Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2016 Financial Results

Zix Corporation (Zix) (ZIXI), a leader in email data protection, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2016.

Fourth Quarter 2016 Financial Highlights (results compared to the same year-ago quarter)

-- Revenue increased 9% to a record $15.6 million

-- Total quarterly orders increased 8% to $15.8 million

-- Ending backlog increased 10% to a record $81.7 million

-- Annual contract value increased 8% to a record $61.7 million

-- The company ended the year with $26.5 million in cash and no debt

Record revenue for the quarter was driven by new customer wins, add-on sales to existing customers, strong performance from ZixQuarantine and ZixOne, and healthy customer renewals. New First Year Orders were $2.7 million for the quarter. GAAP fully diluted earnings per share increased to $0.04 from $0.01 in the same quarter of 2015. Non-GAAP fully diluted earnings per share were $0.07, which was consistent with the year-ago quarter. Adjusted EBITDA was $4.5 million, which was consistent with the year-ago quarter.

Management Commentary

"2016 was a strong and important year for us in many regards. Not only did we achieve a company record of $60.1 million in revenue, reflecting 10% growth over the prior year, but we also experienced double-digit growth in many of our key metrics, including total orders, GAAP net income per share, and adjusted EBITDA," said Dave Wagner, Zix’s Chief Executive Officer. "Operationally, we strengthened our number one market share position for email encryption, enhanced our core solutions even further, and made significant progress along our seven growth pillars. Q4 demonstrated positive results for the quarter and, going forward, indicate a stronger outlook for our business.

"As we look to 2017, we will continue to invest in our core encrypted email solution, with particular emphasis on our hosted platform and customer success. Additionally, we plan to invest in expanding our solutions to address adjacent markets beyond our own. These investments will help us take advantage of more opportunities to cross-sell to our base of nearly 15,000 established customers. We believe all of these initiatives, along with our renewed corporate identity that underscores our gold standard solutions, should enable us to build on the profitable growth momentum we’ve delivered for our shareholders during the past year."

Zix’s Chief Financial Officer David Rockvam added, "We are pleased to have achieved our top-line guidance and exceeded our bottom-line guidance for both the fourth quarter and full year of 2016. Strong new customer orders and upselling activity drove a company record for quarterly revenue of $15.6 million. In fact, our corporate team achieved its highest quarterly New First Year Orders level in our company’s history, supplemented by the strong quarterly performance from both ZixQuarantine and ZixOne, which together helped us achieve, in part, a record annual contract value of $61.7 million. Overall, we are encouraged by our strong finish to the year. We will keep on pursuing the opportunities that enable us to achieve our financial guidance for 2017 and continue to execute on our profitable growth strategy."

Longer-term, the company is focused on driving profitable growth through its seven key growth pillars, which include: securing new customers, nurturing OEM partnerships, expanding the number of licenses within its installed base, upselling additional products to existing customers, increasing renewal rates, investing in its core email encryption solutions, and exploring adjacent and English-speaking international markets. The company will adopt its newly formed Customer Success model, which emphasizes three of these pillars, namely driving new customer wins, securing add-on orders from existing customers, and generating higher overall retention rates.

NOTES TO RECONCILIATION OF GAAP TO NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION

The Company occasionally utilizes financial measures and terms not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP") in order to provide investors with an alternative method for assessing our operating results in a manner that enables investors to more thoroughly evaluate our current performance as compared to past performance. We also believe these Non-GAAP measures provide investors with a more informed baseline for modeling the Company’s future financial performance. Management uses these Non-GAAP financial measures to make operational and investment decisions, to evaluate the Company’s performance, to forecast and to determine compensation. Further, management utilizes these performance measures for purposes of comparison with its business plan and individual operating budgets and allocation of resources. We believe that our investors should have access to, and that we are obligated to provide, the same set of tools that we use in analyzing our results. These Non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results. We have provided definitions below for certain Non-GAAP financial measures, together with an explanation of why management uses these measures and why management believes that these Non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors. In addition, in our earnings release we have provided tables to reconcile the Non-GAAP financial measures utilized to GAAP financial measures.

ADJUSTED NON-GAAP MEASURES

Our Non-GAAP measures adjust GAAP Cost of revenue, Gross profit, Research and development expense, Selling and marketing expense, General and administrative expense, Operating income, Net income, Net income per share - diluted, and EBITDA for non-cash stock-based compensation expense, and strategic consulting and litigation costs to derive Non-GAAP adjusted Cost of revenue, adjusted Gross profit, adjusted Research and development expense, adjusted Selling and marketing expense, adjusted General and administrative expense, adjusted Operating income, adjusted Net income, adjusted Net income per share - diluted and adjusted EBITDA. We provide a reconciliation of these adjusted Non-GAAP measures to GAAP Gross profit, Operating income, Net income, Net income per share - diluted and EBITDA.

Our forward-looking adjusted Non-GAAP earnings per share information consistently excludes non-cash stock-based compensation expense. Additionally, the adjusted Non-GAAP earnings per share will consistently exclude litigation expenses and non-recurring items that impact our ongoing business. See items (A) through (D) below for further information on the current quarter’s reconciling items.

Items (A) through (E) on the "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures" table are listed to the right of certain categories under "Gross profit," "Operating income," "Net income," "Net income per share - diluted" and "EBITDA" and correspond to the categories explained in further detail below under (A) through (E).

(A) Non-cash stock-based compensation charges relating to stock option grants, restricted stock, and restricted stock units awarded to and accounted for in accordance with Share-Based Payment accounting guidance. See (1) on previous page for breakdown of stock-based compensation. Because of varying valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and varying award types, the Company believes that the exclusion of stock-based compensation charges provides for more accurate comparisons to our peer companies and for a more accurate comparison of our financial results to previous periods. Additionally, the Company believes it is useful to investors to understand the specific impact of non-cash stock-based compensation charges on our operating results.

(B) Strategic consulting and litigation costs. See item (2) on previous page. The Company’s management excludes certain board-directed consulting costs and litigation expenses when evaluating its ongoing performance and/or predicting its earnings trends and therefore excludes these charges on our adjusted operating results.

(C) Executive separation payment relating to CFO employment termination benefits agreement. See item (3) on previous page. The Company’s management excludes these costs when evaluating its ongoing performance and/or predicting its earnings trends and therefore excludes these charges on our adjusted operating results.

(D) The Non-GAAP adjustment to the tax provision represents the non-cash tax expense included in the GAAP tax provision, including the current period utilization of deferred tax assets created in previous periods. The remaining provision for income taxes represents expected cash taxes to be paid.

(E) EBITDA represents earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA adds back stock-based compensation charges and litigation expenses.
