Q2 Holdings, Inc. Announces First Quarter 2017 Financial Results

May 3, 2017

Total first quarter revenue of $44.5 million, up 32 percent year-over-year

AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Q2 Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:QTWO), a leading provider of secure, cloud-based digital banking solutions for community-focused financial institutions, today announced results for its first quarter ending March 31, 2017.

First Quarter 2017 Results

  • Revenue for the first quarter of $44.5 million, up 32 percent year-over-year and up 6 percent sequentially.
  • GAAP gross margin for the first quarter of 48.9 percent, up from 47.2 percent one year ago. Non-GAAP gross margin for the first quarter of 52.5 percent, up from 50.8 percent one year ago.
  • GAAP net loss for the first quarter of $7.0 million, which compares to a GAAP net loss of $9.7 million for the first quarter of 2016. Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of positive $1.1 million, an improvement from negative $2.4 million one year ago.

“Our clients’ growth fueled strong organic user growth in the first quarter, and we experienced wins in both the bank and credit union markets,” said Matt Flake, CEO of Q2. “We also recently hosted CONNECT, our annual conference, and I’m encouraged by the fact that our clients feel optimistic about their business environments and the future direction of the Q2 Platform.”

First Quarter 2017 Highlights

  • Hosted CONNECT, Q2’s annual client conference, in early April with record attendance from both client and prospect financial institutions.
  • Delivered multiple Tier 1 customers into production on Q2’s corporate banking platform.
  • Launched new Active-Active disaster recovery solution designed to noticeably mitigate downtime and deliver increased performance in the event of an outage. Reflective of Q2’s commitment of over $20 million over the last five years in data center hosting solutions.
  • Exited the first quarter with approximately 8.9 million registered users on the Q2 Platform, representing 4 percent sequential and 32 percent year-over-year growth.

Financial Outlook

Q2 Holdings is providing guidance for its second quarter 2017 as follows:

  • Total revenue of $46.9 to $47.5 million, which would represent year-over-year growth of 30 percent to 32 percent.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of positive $600 thousand to $1.0 million. GAAP net loss is the most comparable GAAP measure to adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA differs from GAAP net loss in that it excludes depreciation and amortization, stock based compensation, acquisition-related costs, interest, and income taxes. Q2 Holdings is unable to predict with reasonable certainty the ultimate outcome of these exclusions without unreasonable effort. Therefore, Q2 Holdings has not provided guidance for GAAP net loss or a reconciliation of the foregoing forward-looking adjusted EBITDA guidance to GAAP net loss.

Q2 Holdings is providing guidance for the full-year 2017 as follows:

  • Total revenue of $192.3 to $194.3 million, which would represent year-over-year growth of 28 percent to 29 percent.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of positive $6.5 million to $7.7 million. Adjusted EBITDA differs from GAAP net loss in that it excludes depreciation and amortization, stock based compensation, acquisition-related costs, interest, and income taxes. Q2 Holdings is unable to predict with reasonable certainty the ultimate outcome of these exclusions without unreasonable effort. Therefore, Q2 Holdings has not provided guidance for GAAP net loss or a reconciliation of the foregoing forward-looking adjusted EBITDA guidance to GAAP net loss.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

Q2 uses the following non-GAAP financial measures: adjusted EBITDA; non-GAAP gross margin; non-GAAP gross profit; non-GAAP sales and marketing expense; non-GAAP research and development expense; non-GAAP general and administrative expense; non-GAAP operating loss; and, non-GAAP net loss. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful measures of operating performance because they exclude items that Q2 does not consider indicative of its core performance.

In the case of adjusted EBITDA, Q2 adjusts net loss for such things as interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, acquisition-related costs, amortization of technology and intangibles, and unoccupied lease charges. In the case of non-GAAP gross margin and non-GAAP gross profit, Q2 adjusts gross profit and gross margin for stock-based compensation and amortization of acquired technology. In the case of non-GAAP sales and marketing expense, non-GAAP research and development expense, and non-GAAP general and administrative expense, Q2 adjusts the corresponding GAAP expense to exclude stock-based compensation. In the case of non-GAAP operating loss and non-GAAP net loss, Q2 adjusts operating loss and net loss, respectively, for stock-based compensation, acquisition related-costs, amortization of acquired technology, amortization of acquired intangibles, and unoccupied lease charges.

These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or superior to, the closest GAAP measures, or other financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation to the closest GAAP measures of these non-GAAP measures is contained in tabular form on the attached unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.

Q2’s management uses these non-GAAP measures as measures of operating performance; to prepare Q2’s annual operating budget; to allocate resources to enhance the financial performance of Q2’s business; to evaluate the effectiveness of Q2’s business strategies; to provide consistency and comparability with past financial performance; to facilitate a comparison of Q2’s results with those of other companies, many of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results; and in communication with our board of directors concerning Q2’s financial performance.
