JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Nov. 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Web.com Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:WEB), a leading provider of Internet services and online marketing solutions for small businesses, today announced results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016.   

"Web.com reported solid third quarter results highlighted by strong profitability and year over year growth in our value added services products.  We have made good progress in our integration of Yodle and identified several product integration and go to market adjustments designed to better position the Company for improved performance over time.  We believe the changes we are making will have a near term financial impact, but these steps are absolutely the right strategic moves for Web.com," said David L. Brown, chairman, chief executive officer and president of Web.com.

Brown added, "We will be more measured in our investments during the integration and maintain our focus on strong profitability and cash flow.  Today's announcement of a $100 million expansion and extension of our share repurchase program will provide us additional flexibility to deploy our significant free cash flow in ways that enhance shareholder value."

Summary of Third Quarter 2016 Financial Results:
  • Total revenue, calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), was $190.7 million for the third quarter of 2016, compared to $136.8 million for the third quarter of 2015. Non-GAAP revenue was $192.8 million for the third quarter of 2016, compared to $140.4 million in the year-ago quarter, and slightly below the Company's guidance range of $193 million to $195 million.  The year over year increase in revenue is primarily due to the acquisition of Yodle. 
  • GAAP operating income was $18.1 million for the third quarter of 2016, representing a 9% GAAP operating margin, compared to $16.7 million, representing a 12% GAAP operating margin, for the third quarter of 2015.  Non-GAAP operating income was $43.9 million for the third quarter of 2016, representing a 23% non-GAAP operating margin, compared to $35.3 million for the third quarter of 2015, representing a 25% non-GAAP operating margin. 
  • GAAP net income was $3.3 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2016, representing a 2% GAAP net income margin. GAAP net income was $6.1 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2015, representing a 4% GAAP net income margin. Non-GAAP net income was $38.4 million for the third quarter of 2016, or $0.76 per diluted share, exceeding the high end of the Company's net income guidance of $32 million to $34 million, or $0.63 to $0.67 per diluted share. The Company had non-GAAP net income of $32.5 million, or $0.62 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2015. 
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $49.6 million for the third quarter of 2016, compared to $39.3 million for the third quarter of 2015, representing a 26% and 28% adjusted EBITDA margin during the three months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively. 
  • The Company generated cash from operations of $44.5 million for the third quarter of 2016, compared to $35.2 million of cash flow from operations for the third quarter of 2015. 
  • Capital expenditures in the third quarter of 2016 increased in part due to a $1.9 million adjustment to conform Yodle and Web.com accounting practices.  This will not have an impact on the full year results, but in the third quarter of 2016, it also reduced operating expenses and increased operating cash flow by $1.9 million.

Third Quarter and Recent Business Highlights:
  • Web.com's total net subscribers were approximately 3,447,000 at the end of the third quarter of 2016, up approximately 5,000 from the end of the second quarter of 2016. 
  • Web.com's average revenue per user (ARPU) was $18.47 for the third quarter of 2016 compared to $13.90 for the third quarter of 2015.  ARPU was down sequentially during the third quarter of 2016 from $18.66 during the second quarter of 2016. 
  • Web.com's trailing twelve month customer retention rate was 86.0% for the third quarter of 2016. 
  • Web.com used $23.0 million in cash to reduce debt during the quarter. 
  • Repurchased 32,000 shares for $0.6 million in the third quarter of 2016.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Some of the measures in this press release are non-GAAP financial measures within the meaning of the SEC Regulation G. Web.com believes presenting non-GAAP measures is useful to investors, because it describes the operating performance of the Company, in ways that management views or uses to assess the performance of the Company. Web.com's management uses these non-GAAP measures as important indicators of the Company's past performance and in planning and forecasting performance in future periods. The non-GAAP financial information Web.com presents may not be comparable to similarly-titled financial measures used by other companies, and investors should not consider non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or in substitution for, financial information presented in compliance with GAAP.

You are encouraged to review the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP financial measures included elsewhere in this press release.

Relative to each of the non-GAAP measures Web.com presents, management further sets forth its rationale as follows:
  • Non-GAAP Revenue. Web.com excludes from non-GAAP revenue the impact of the fair value adjustment to amortized deferred revenue because management believes that excluding such measures helps management and investors better understand the Company's revenue trends.
  • Non-GAAP Operating Income and Non-GAAP Operating Margin. Web.com excludes from non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP operating margin, amortization of intangibles, asset impairment, fair value adjustment to deferred revenue and deferred expense, restructuring expenses, corporate development expenses, and stock-based compensation charges, because management believes that adjusting for such measures helps management and investors better understand the Company's operating activities.
  • Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Net Income Per Basic and Diluted Share. Web.com excludes from non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per basic and diluted share amortization of intangibles, asset impairment, income tax provision, fair value adjustment to deferred revenue and deferred expense, restructuring expenses, corporate development expenses, amortization of debt discounts and fees, and stock-based compensation, and includes estimated cash income tax payments, because management believes that adjusting for such measures helps management and investors better understand the Company's operating activities.
  • Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin. Web.com excludes from adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin depreciation and amortization expense, asset impairment, income tax provision, interest expense, interest income, stock-based compensation, fair value adjustments to deferred revenue and deferred expense, corporate development expenses and restructuring expenses, because management believes that excluding such items helps investors better understand the Company's operating activities.
  • Non-GAAP Gross Profit and Non-GAAP Gross Margin. Web.com excludes from non-GAAP gross profit  and  non-GAAP gross margin, fair value adjustment to deferred revenue and deferred expense, and stock based compensation charges, because management believes that adjusting for such measures helps management and investors better understand the Company's operating activities.
  • Free Cash Flow. Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure that Web.com uses and defines as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures. The Company considers free cash flow to be a liquidity measure which provides useful information to management and investors about the amount of cash generated by the business after the acquisition of property and equipment, which can then be used for investment opportunities.

In respect of the foregoing, Web.com provides the following supplemental information to provide additional context for the use and consideration of the non-GAAP financial measures used elsewhere in this press release:
  • Stock-based compensation. These expenses consist of expenses for employee stock options and employee awards under Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") 718-10. While stock-based compensation expense calculated in accordance with ASC 718-10 constitutes an ongoing and recurring expense, such expense is excluded from non-GAAP results because such expense is not used by management to assess the core profitability of the Company's business operations. Web.com further believes these measures are useful to investors in that they allow for greater transparency to certain line items in the Company's financial statements. In addition, when management performs internal comparisons to Web.com's historical operating results and compares the Company's operating results to the Company's competitors, management excludes this item from various non-GAAP measures.
  • Asset impairment. Web.com has recorded expenses related to asset impairment and excludes the impact of these expenses from its non-GAAP measures, because such expense is not used by management to assess the core profitability of the Company's business operations.
  • Amortization of intangibles. Web.com incurs amortization of acquired intangibles under ASC 805-10-65. Acquired intangibles primarily consist of customer relationships, customer lists, non-compete agreements, trade names, and developed technology. Web.com expects to amortize for accounting purposes the fair value of the acquired intangibles based on the pattern in which the economic benefits of the intangible assets will be consumed as revenue is generated. Although the intangible assets generate revenue, the Company believes the non-GAAP financial measures excluding this item provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company's operational performance. In addition, when management performs internal comparisons to Web.com's historical operating results and compares the Company's operating results to the Company's competitors, management excludes this item from various non-GAAP measures.
  • Depreciation expense. Web.com records depreciation expense associated with its fixed assets. Although its fixed assets generate revenue for Web.com, the item is excluded because management believes certain non-GAAP financial measures excluding this item provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company's operational performance. In addition, when management performs internal comparisons to Web.com's historical operating results and compares the Company's operating results to the Company's competitors, management excludes this item from various non-GAAP measures.
  • Amortization of debt discounts and fees. Web.com incurs amortization expense related to debt discounts and deferred financing fees. The difference between the effective interest expense and the coupon interest expense (i.e. debt discount), as well as, amortized deferred financing fees are excluded because Web.com believes the non-GAAP measures excluding these items provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company's operational performance. In addition, when management performs internal comparisons to Web.com's historical operating results and compares the Company's operating results to the Company's competitors, management excludes this item from various non-GAAP measures.
  • Restructuring expense. Web.com has recorded restructuring expenses and excludes the impact of these expenses from its non-GAAP measures, because such expense is not used by management to assess the core profitability of the Company's business operations.
  • Income tax expense. Due to the magnitude of Web.com's historical net operating losses and related deferred tax asset, the Company excludes income tax from its non-GAAP measures primarily because it is not indicative of the actual tax to be paid by the Company and therefore is not reflective of ongoing operating results. The Company believes that excluding this item provides meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company's operational performance and facilitates management's internal comparisons to the Company's historical operating results and comparisons to the Company's competitors' operating results. The Company includes the estimated tax that the Company expects to pay for operations during the periods presented.
  • Fair value adjustment to deferred revenue and deferred expense. Web.com has recorded a fair value adjustment to acquired deferred revenue and deferred expense in accordance with ASC 805-10-65. Web.com excludes the impact of these adjustments from its non-GAAP measures, because doing so results in non-GAAP revenue and non-GAAP net income which are reflective of ongoing operating results and more comparable to historical operating results, since the majority of the Company's revenue is recurring subscription revenue. Excluding the fair value adjustment to deferred revenue and deferred expense therefore facilitates management's internal comparisons to Web.com's historical operating results.
  • Corporate development expenses. Web.com incurred expenses relating to acquisitions and the successful integration of acquisitions. Web.com excludes the impact of these expenses from its non-GAAP measures, because such expense is not used by management to assess the core profitability of the Company's business operations.
  • Monthly average revenue per user, or ARPU.  ARPU is a metric the Company measures on a quarterly basis. The Company defines ARPU as quarterly non-GAAP subscription revenue divided by the average of the number of subscribers at the beginning of the quarter and the number of subscribers at the end of the quarter, divided by three months. The Company excludes from subscription revenue the impact of the fair value adjustments to deferred revenue resulting from acquisition-related write downs.
