OneSpan Reports Results for First Quarter 2019; Reiterates Full Year 2019 Guidance

May 7, 2019

First Quarter Financial Results

-- Total revenue grew 5% year-over-year to $47.6 million -- Adjusted EBITDA of $(2.2) million1 -- GAAP loss per share of $0.14 -- Non-GAAP loss per share of $0.071

CHICAGO, May 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OneSpan Inc. (NASDAQ: OSPN), a global leader in software for trusted identities, e-signatures and secure transactions, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2019.

“First quarter revenue met our plan with a robust contribution from hardware authentication as European financial institutions prepare for PSD2 compliance by September of this year,” stated OneSpan CEO, Scott Clements. “Hardware orders in the quarter were more than double the same period of 2018 and we now expect hardware revenue to grow modestly for the full-year. Subscription revenues also grew strongly, increasing 77% above first quarter 2018. Software license revenue declined as expected after a very strong first quarter of 2018 and as our e-signature sales shift from licenses toward subscriptions. Revenue mix in the quarter negatively impacted margins. We expect profitability to improve over the course of 2019 on higher revenues and increasing contribution from software and services.”

First Quarter 2019 Financial Highlights

-- Revenue for the first quarter of 2019 was $47.6 million, an increase of 5% from $45.4 million for the first quarter of 2018. -- Gross Profit for the first quarter of 2019 was $31.6 million, compared to $34.7 million for the first quarter of 2018. Gross margin for the first quarter of 2019 was 66%, compared to 65% in fourth quarter 2018 and 76% for the first quarter of 2018 due to strong software license revenues. -- GAAP operating loss for the first quarter of 2019 was $5.5 million, compared to GAAP operating income of $1.6 million for the first quarter of 2018. -- Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter 2019 was $(2.2) million, compared to $6.1 million for the first quarter of 2018. -- GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2019 was $5.7 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net income of $1.8 million, or $0.04 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2018. -- Non-GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2019 was $2.9 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, compared to Non-GAAP net income of $4.6 million, or $0.12 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2018.1 -- Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments at March 31, 2019 totaled $95.3 million compared to $99.5 million and $166.4 million at December 31, 2018 and March 31, 2018, respectively.

Recent Business Highlights

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We report financial results in accordance with GAAP. We also evaluate our performance using certain non-GAAP operating metrics, namely Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP Net Income and non-GAAP diluted EPS. Our management believes that these measures provide useful supplemental information regarding the performance of our business and facilitates comparisons to our historical operating results. We believe these non-GAAP operating metrics provide additional tools for investors to use to compare our business with other companies in the industry.

These non-GAAP measures are not measures of performance under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation, as alternatives or substitutes for the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. While we believe that these non-GAAP measures are useful within the context described below, they are in fact incomplete and are not a measure that should be used to evaluate our full performance or our prospects. Such an evaluation needs to consider all of the complexities associated with our business including, but not limited to, how past actions are affecting current results and how they may affect future results, how we have chosen to finance the business, and how taxes affect the final amounts that are or will be available to shareholders as a return on their investment. Reconciliations of the non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are found below.

Adjusted EBITDA

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, long-term incentive compensation, and certain other non-recurring items, including acquisition related costs, lease exit costs, rebranding costs, and accruals for legal contingencies. We use Adjusted EBITDA as a simplified measure of performance for use in communicating our performance to investors and analysts and for comparisons to other companies within our industry. As a performance measure, we believe that Adjusted EBITDA presents a view of our operating results that is most closely related to serving our customers. By excluding interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, long-term incentive compensation, and certain other non-recurring items, we are able to evaluate performance without considering decisions that, in most cases, are not directly related to meeting our customers’ requirements and were either made in prior periods (e.g., depreciation, amortization, long-term incentive compensation, lease exit costs, reversal of a prior period legal contingency accrual), or deal with the structure or financing of the business (e.g., interest, acquisition related costs, rebranding costs) or reflect the application of regulations that are outside of the control of our management team (e.g., taxes). Similarly, we find the comparison of our results to those of our competitors is facilitated when we do not consider the impact of these items.

Non-GAAP Net Income (Loss) & Non-GAAP Diluted EPS

We define non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP diluted EPS, as net income (loss) or EPS before the consideration of long-term incentive compensation expenses, the amortization of intangible assets, and certain other non-recurring items. We use these measures to assess the impact of our performance excluding items that can significantly impact the comparison of our results between periods and the comparison to competitors.

Long-term incentive compensation for management and others is directly tied to performance and this measure allows management to see the relationship of the cost of incentives to the performance of the business operations directly if such incentives are based on that period’s performance. To the extent that such incentives are based on performance over a period of several years, there may be periods which have significant adjustments to the accruals in the period but which relate to a longer period of time, and which can make it difficult to assess the results of the business operations in the current period. In addition, the Company’s long-term incentives generally reflect the use of restricted stock grants or cash awards while other companies may use different forms of incentives the cost of which is determined on a different basis, which makes a comparison difficult. We exclude amortization of intangible assets as we believe the amount of such expense in any given period may not be correlated directly to the performance of the business operations and that such expenses can vary significantly between periods as a result of new acquisitions, the full amortization of previously acquired intangible assets or the write down of such assets due to an impairment event. However, intangible assets contribute to current and future revenue and related amortization expense will recur in future periods until expired or written down.

We exclude certain other non-recurring items including impacts of tax reform, acquisition related costs, rebranding costs, lease exit costs, and reserves for certain legal contingencies as these items are unrelated to the operations of our core business. By excluding these items, we are better able to compare the operating results of our underlying core business from one reporting period to the next.

We make a tax adjustment based on the above adjustments resulting in an effective tax rate on a non-GAAP basis, which may differ from the GAAP tax rate. We believe the effective tax rates we use in the adjustment are reasonable estimates of the overall tax rates for the Company under its global operating structure.
