November 6, 2018

AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 6, 2018--Q2 Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:QTWO), a leading provider of digital banking solutions for financial institutions, today announced results for its third quarter ending Sept. 30, 2018.

Third Quarter 2018 Results

Revenue for the third quarter of $60.5 million, up 21 percent year-over-year and up 3 percent from the previous quarter. GAAP gross margin for the third quarter of 50.2 percent, up from 48.5 percent one year ago. Non-GAAP gross margin for the third quarter of 53.8 percent, up from 52.3 percent one year ago. GAAP net loss for the third quarter of $8.9 million, which compares to a GAAP net loss of $5.8 million for the third quarter of 2017, and $8.6 million for the second quarter of 2018. Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of positive $5.7 million, an improvement from positive $3.6 million one year ago and positive $5.1 million for the second quarter of 2018.

“We saw solid sales performance in the quarter, highlighted by record bookings for Q2 Open and adding a top 50 credit union,” said Matt Flake, CEO of Q2. “Our delivery teams had an outstanding quarter as we added more than 900,000 registered users, a record for a single quarter. Looking ahead, our pipeline is healthy and we believe will be even stronger with the addition of Cloud Lending. I am optimistic that we are positioned well for strong bookings in the fourth quarter.”

Third Quarter 2018 Highlights.

Signed a top 50 credit union in the northeastern United States with more than $5 billion in assets as a retail customer. Exited the third quarter with more than 12.3 million registered users on the Q2 platform, representing 24 percent year-over-year growth and up 8 percent sequentially. Q2 Open signed eight deals including a reseller agreement with a large payments provider for our biller direct solution.

Financial Outlook

Q2 Holdings is providing guidance for its fourth quarter 2018 as follows:

Total revenue, excluding the acquisition of Cloud Lending, of $64.9 million to $65.3 million, which would represent year-over-year growth of 26 percent. We anticipate Cloud Lending will add approximately $1.0 million to $2.0 million in revenue to the fourth quarter after all related purchase accounting adjustments, increasing the revenue guide for the quarter to $65.9 million to $67.3 million on a combined basis, which would represent year-over-year growth of 27 percent to 30 percent. Adjusted EBITDA, excluding the acquisition of Cloud Lending, of $7.1 million to $7.5 million. We anticipate the initial investment we are making to integrate Cloud Lending and achieve our 2019 go to market strategy will reduce adjusted EBITDA in the fourth quarter by approximately $4.0 million to $5.0 million, reducing the adjusted EBITDA guide for the quarter to $2.1 million to $3.5 million. GAAP net loss is the most comparable GAAP measure to adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA differs from GAAP net loss in that it excludes things such as depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, acquisition-related costs, interest, income taxes and unoccupied lease charges. Q2 Holdings is unable to predict with reasonable certainty the ultimate outcome of these exclusions without unreasonable effort. Therefore, Q2 Holdings has not provided guidance for GAAP net loss or a reconciliation of the foregoing forward-looking adjusted EBITDA guidance to GAAP net loss.

Q2 Holdings is providing guidance for the full-year 2018 as follows:

Total revenue, excluding the acquisition of Cloud Lending, of $238.8 million to $239.2 million, which would represent year-over-year growth of approximately 23 percent. The addition of Cloud Lending will increase the revenue guide for the full year to $239.8 million to $241.2 million on a combined basis, which would represent year-over-year growth of 24 percent. Adjusted EBITDA, excluding the acquisition of Cloud Lending, of $23.0 million to $23.4 million. The addition of Cloud Lending will reduce the adjusted EBITDA guide for the full year to $18.0 million to $19.4 million on a combined basis. Adjusted EBITDA differs from GAAP net loss in that it excludes things such as depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, acquisition-related costs, interest, income taxes and unoccupied lease charges. Q2 Holdings is unable to predict with reasonable certainty the ultimate outcome of these exclusions without unreasonable effort. Therefore, Q2 Holdings has not provided guidance for GAAP net loss or a reconciliation of the foregoing forward-looking adjusted EBITDA guidance to GAAP net loss.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

Q2 uses the following non-GAAP financial measures: adjusted EBITDA; non-GAAP gross margin; non-GAAP gross profit; non-GAAP sales and marketing expense; non-GAAP research and development expense; non-GAAP general and administrative expense; non-GAAP operating loss; and, non-GAAP net loss. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful measures of operating performance because they exclude items that Q2 does not consider indicative of its core performance.

In the case of adjusted EBITDA, Q2 adjusts net loss for such things as interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, acquisition-related costs, amortization of technology and intangibles, and unoccupied lease charges. In the case of non-GAAP gross margin and non-GAAP gross profit, Q2 adjusts gross profit and gross margin for stock-based compensation and amortization of acquired technology. In the case of non-GAAP sales and marketing expense, non-GAAP research and development expense, and non-GAAP general and administrative expense, Q2 adjusts the corresponding GAAP expense to exclude stock-based compensation. In the case of non-GAAP operating loss and non-GAAP net loss, Q2 adjusts operating loss and net loss, respectively, for stock-based compensation, acquisition related-costs, amortization of acquired technology, amortization of acquired intangibles, and unoccupied lease charges.

These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or superior to, the closest GAAP measures, or other financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation to the closest GAAP measures of these non-GAAP measures is contained in tabular form on the attached unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.

Q2’s management uses these non-GAAP measures as measures of operating performance; to prepare Q2’s annual operating budget; to allocate resources to enhance the financial performance of Q2’s business; to evaluate the effectiveness of Q2’s business strategies; to provide consistency and comparability with past financial performance; to facilitate a comparison of Q2’s results with those of other companies, many of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results; and in communication with our board of directors concerning Q2’s financial performance.
