Synchronoss Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNCR), the mobile innovation leader that provides cloud solutions and software-based activation for mobile carriers, retailers and OEMs around the world, today announced financial results for the second quarter 2015.

"Synchronoss reported strong second quarter results that met or exceeded the high end of expectations," said Stephen G. Waldis, Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Synchronoss. "Each of our businesses performed well in the quarter and we were pleased to see some of our new wins began to scale and drive volumes, particularly on the cloud side. We are gaining strong traction among international mobile operators who are increasingly realizing the significant value Synchronoss' white-label cloud solution can deliver to their subscribers."

On a GAAP basis, Synchronoss reported net revenues of $137.8 million, representing an increase of 33% compared to the second quarter of 2014. Gross profit was $82.9 million and income from operations was $23.6 million in the second quarter of 2015. Net income was $15.2 million, leading to diluted earnings per share of $0.33, compared to $0.20 for the second quarter of 2014.

On a non-GAAP basis, Synchronoss reported net revenues, which adds back the purchase accounting adjustment related to revenues for certain acquisitions, of $137.9 million, an increase of 33% compared to the second quarter of 2014. Gross profit for the second quarter of 2015 was $85.4 million, representing a gross margin of 62%. Income from operations was $40.2 million in the second quarter of 2015, representing a year-over-year increase of 55% and an operating margin of 29%. Net income was $26.0 million in the second quarter of 2015, up from $16.8 million in the year ago period. Diluted earnings per share were $0.56 for the second quarter of 2015, compared to $0.41 for the second quarter of 2014.

A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results has been provided in the financial statement tables included in this press release. An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading "Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

"We are pleased with our second quarter performance, highlighted by improving operating leverage, better-than-expected profitability and solid cash flow," said Karen L. Rosenberger, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer. "We continue to execute at a high level, which is resulting in strong growth across both our cloud and activation services revenue, and we believe we are well positioned to maintain our strong momentum on a global basis."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Synchronoss has provided in this release selected financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with GAAP. This information includes historical non-GAAP revenues, gross profit, operating income, net income, effective tax rate, earnings per share and cash flows from operating activities. Synchronoss uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing its financial results and believes they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating Synchronoss' ongoing operational performance. Synchronoss believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends, and in comparing its financial results with other companies in Synchronoss' industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. As noted, the non-GAAP financial results discussed above add back the deferred revenue write-down associated with acquisitions, fair value stock-based compensation expense, acquisition-related costs which includes integration costs, changes in the contingent consideration obligation, deferred compensation expense related to earn outs and amortization of intangibles associated with acquisitions.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures as detailed above. As previously mentioned, a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results has been provided in the financial statement tables included in this press release.
