Everbridge Announces Third Quarter 2018 Financial Results

Third Quarter Revenue Increased 43% Year-over-Year

BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 5, 2018-- Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG), the global leader in critical event management and enterprise safety software applications to help keep people safe and businesses running, today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018.

“With strong results across the board, we exceeded our guidance ranges for both revenue and non-GAAP profitability in the third quarter,” said Jaime Ellertson, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Everbridge. “Our performance in the third quarter clearly illustrates Everbridge’s evolution from a leading provider of mass notification technology to a broad, integrated leader in Critical Event Management. Our third quarter was characterized by growing demand – both domestically and internationally – in our core mass notification market with notable success in the corporate, healthcare and government markets, including a number of key federal wins. New products helped drive a record number of multi-product deals with increasing transaction sizes. And we furthered our leadership in Critical Event Management with our integrated suite.”

Ellertson continued, “Our continued technology investments combined with growing customer demand leave us well positioned to continue driving strong growth as we address an even larger opportunity in this multi-billion dollar market.”

Third Quarter 2018 Financial Highlights

  • Total revenue was $38.9 million, an increase of 43% compared to $27.3 million for the third quarter of 2017.
  • GAAP operating loss was $(7.2) million, compared to a GAAP operating loss of $(4.4) million for the third quarter of 2017.
  • Non-GAAP operating loss was $(1.8) million, compared to non-GAAP operating loss of $(0.7) million for the third quarter of 2017. Non-GAAP operating loss excludes stock-based compensation and amortization of intangible assets related to acquisitions.
  • GAAP net loss was $(8.5) million, compared to $(4.2) million for the third quarter of 2017. GAAP net loss per share was $(0.29), based on 29.5 million basic and diluted weighted average common shares outstanding, compared to $(0.15) for the third quarter of 2017, based on 28.1 million basic and diluted weighted average common shares outstanding.
  • Non-GAAP net loss was $(3.1) million, compared to $(0.6) million in the third quarter of 2017. Non-GAAP net loss per share was $(0.10), based on 29.5 million basic and diluted weighted average common shares outstanding, compared to $(0.02) for the third quarter of 2017, based on 28.1 million basic and diluted weighted average common shares outstanding.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains the following non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP cost of revenue, non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP sales and marketing, non-GAAP research and development, non-GAAP general and administrative, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income/(loss), non-GAAP net income/(loss), non-GAAP net income/(loss) per share, adjusted EBITDA, and free cash flow.

We believe that these non-GAAP measures of financial results provide useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to Everbridge's financial condition and results of operations. We use these non-GAAP measures for financial, operational and budgetary decision-making purposes, to understand and evaluate our core operating performance and trends, and to generate future operating plans. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information regarding past financial performance and future prospects, and permit us to more thoroughly analyze key financial metrics used to make operational decisions. We believe 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 our financial measures with other software companies, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors.

We do not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitation of these non-GAAP financial measures is that they exclude significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP to be recorded in the Company's financial statements. In addition, they are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of judgment by management about which expenses and income are excluded or included in determining these non-GAAP financial measures. In order to compensate for these limitations, management presents non-GAAP financial measures in connection with GAAP results. We urge investors to review the reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures, which are included in this press release, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.
