Qumu Announces Second Quarter 2018 Results, Reports Strong License Revenue Growth

Conference Call Wednesday, August 1, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. ET

Minneapolis, July 31, 2018 – Qumu Corporation (NASDAQ: QUMU) today reported financial results for the second quarter ending June 30, 2018. The Company reported strong growth in both license revenue and sales pipeline, increasing gross margins, paydown of its long-term debt, and reiteration of its 2018 full year revenue guidance.

Second quarter 2018 revenue was $7.6 million, compared to $6.7 million in the second quarter 2017, and net loss for the second quarter 2018 was $(1.5) million, or $(0.16) per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $(2.6) million, or $(0.28) per diluted share, in the second quarter 2017. Second quarter adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, was $71,000 for the second quarter 2018, compared to $(1.0) million for the second quarter 2017.

“During the second quarter of 2018 we not only brought revenue into line, but also created a strong balance sheet by monetizing our investment in BriefCam,” said Vern Hanzlik, Qumu’s President and CEO. “Now we are focused on carrying that momentum through the second half of 2018, as our software-as-a-service video solutions gain traction within the enterprise.”

For the six months ended June 30, 2018, revenue was $12.5 million, compared to $13.4 million last year, and net loss was $(6.1) million, or a loss of $(0.64) per diluted share, compared to $(6.2) million, or a loss of $(0.66) per diluted share, last year. For the six months ended June 30, 2018, adjusted EBITDA was negative $(2.8) million, compared to negative adjusted EBITDA of $(3.0) million last year.

The year-over-year revenue comparisons were negatively impacted by approximately $240,000 and $424,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, respectively, due to the adoption of the new revenue recognition standard (ASC Topic 606). Additionally, the loss of a large customer, which was previously announced as lost in the fourth quarter 2017, negatively impacted the year-over-year revenue comparisons by approximately $800,000 and $1.6 million in the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, respectively. The Company incurred severance expense relating to cost reduction initiatives of $6,000 and $16,000 in the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, and $168,000 and $123,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

Other Financial Highlights

  • Software license and appliance revenue was $2.9 million and $0.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, and $3.3 million and $2.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, with the increases attributable to both new license sales and expansion of existing customers.
  • Subscription, maintenance and support revenue was $4.1 million and $5.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, and $8.2 million and $9.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. The year-over-year revenue comparisons were negatively impacted by approximately $246,000 and $443,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, respectively, due to the adoption of the new revenue recognition standard (ASC Topic 606). Additionally, the loss of a large customer which was previously announced as lost in the fourth quarter 2017, negatively impacted the year-over-year revenue comparisons by approximately $800,000 and $1.6 million in the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, respectively.
  • Offsetting for the negative impacts noted above is growth in our core business and subscription growth. Contributing to subscription, maintenance and support revenue in the current period was the arrangement with iStudy Co. Ltd., Qumu’s sales partner in Japan. iStudy has agreed to pay Qumu $1 million in non-refundable Qumu Cloud license fees to expand the strategic relationship between the companies.
  • Gross margin for the second quarter 2018 was 68.5%, compared to 65.6% for the second quarter 2017. Gross margin for the six months ended June 30, 2018 was 63.7%, compared to 63.6% for the six months ended June 30, 2017. The change in gross margin compared to the prior year periods was favorably impacted by increased perpetual license revenue in the quarter.
  • Cash and cash equivalents totaled $5.2 million as of June 30, 2018, compared to $7.7 million as of December 31, 2017, reflecting the 2018 first half operating loss offset by changes in working capital.
  • Subsequent to June 30, 2018, the Company received net cash proceeds of $9.6 million on July 6, 2018 from the sale of its investment in BriefCam Ltd., which was recently acquired by Canon Inc.
  • From the BriefCam net proceeds, the Company paid on July 19, 2018 $6.0 million of principal and $463,000 of accrued interest on its outstanding term loan with ESW Holdings, Inc. As of July 20, 2018, after the receipt of BriefCam proceeds and prepayment on its outstanding term loan, the Company had cash on hand of $7.3 million.

Given the performance to date and sales pipeline, the Company is confident in the achievement of its previously issued revenue guidance for the full year 2018. Core bookings growth is expected to be 25% in 2018, emphasizing growth in sales of the Qx platform. Revenue for 2018 is expected to be approximately $25 million, which includes an approximately $1.1 million unfavorable revenue impact due to the adoption of the new revenue recognition standard (ASC Topic 606) in 2018, as well as the loss of a large customer in the fourth quarter 2017, representing revenue of approximately $3.2 million annually. Gross margin percentage is expected to be in the mid to high 60s. Adjusted EBITDA for 2018 is expected to be approximately $(3.5) million, which is unchanged from previously issued guidance. The Company expects to achieve positive adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, in the fourth quarter 2018. Adjusted EBITDA for 2018 excludes the net gain of approximately $5.2 million on the sale of BriefCam Ltd. and subsequent paydown of term debt, stock-based compensation expense of approximately $1.0 million, amortization of acquired intangible assets of approximately $2.1 million, depreciation expense of approximately $0.5 million, income tax benefit of approximately $0.2 million, and interest expense of approximately $1.8 million. Net loss for 2018 is expected to be approximately $(3.5) million, which includes the gain on the sale of its investment in BriefCam Ltd. in the third quarter 2018 and results for the six months ended June 30, 2018.

Non-GAAP Information

To supplement the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, the Company uses adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, which excludes certain items from net income (loss), a GAAP measure. Adjusted EBITDA excludes items related to interest income and expense, the impact of income-based taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, change in fair value of warrant liabilities, foreign currency gains and losses, the gain on the sale of BriefCam and other non-operating income and expenses.

The Company uses both GAAP and non-GAAP measures when planning, monitoring, and evaluating the Company’s performance. The Company believes that adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors because it provides supplemental information that allows investors to review the Company’s results of operations from the same perspective as management and the Company’s board of directors. Non-GAAP results are presented for supplemental informational purposes only for understanding our operating results. The non-GAAP results should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

See the attached Supplemental Financial Information for a reconciliation of net loss, a GAAP measure, to adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017.
