 Datawatch Announces Third Quarter Fiscal 2018 Financial Results
   Wednesday, July 18, 2018 4:02:00 PM ET

BEDFORD, Mass., July 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Datawatch Corporation (NASDAQ-CM:DWCH ), a leader in data intelligence to fuel your business, today announced that total revenue for its third quarter of fiscal 2018 ended June 30, 2018 was $11.11 million on a GAAP basis, an increase of 23% from total revenue of $9.07 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2017.  License revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2018 was $6.87 million on a GAAP basis, a 40% increase from the $4.91 million recorded in the same quarter a year ago.



Total revenue on a non-GAAP basis was $12.9 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2018, an increase of 42% from the year ago period.  License revenue on a non-GAAP basis was $8.7 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2018, an increase of 77% from the year ago period.

A full reconciliation of GAAP reported results to non-GAAP is included in Appendix A of this press release. Non-GAAP results exclude the effects of the purchase accounting treatment of the deferred revenue fair value adjustment associated with the acquisition of Angoss, amortization associated with the purchase of certain intellectual property and other intangible assets, share-based compensation, transaction costs associated with the acquisition of Angoss, and the payment received in respect of a stockholder’s short-swing stock trading profits.

Net loss for the third quarter of fiscal 2018 was ($2.28) million, or ($0.18) per diluted share, compared to a net loss of ($0.50) million, or ($0.04) per diluted share, for the year ago period.  The Company’s non–GAAP net income for its third quarter of fiscal 2018 was $0.94 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $0.22 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2017. 

“We are pleased with our progress during this first full quarter following the Angoss acquisition, which was highlighted by 23% year-over-year total revenue growth, 40% year-over-year license revenue growth and a 57% recurring revenue mix1,” said Michael A. Morrison, president and chief executive officer of Datawatch.  “Customers have embraced the addition of Angoss to our portfolio, our dedication to continuous innovation with the latest releases of Swarm and Panopticon, and our unwavering focus on both the ease of use and the breadth of our data intelligence platform offering.  We enter the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 with momentum and confidence that we can capture more opportunities in an extremely vibrant segment of business analytics.”

James L. Eliason, chief financial officer, commented, “We delivered record results for total bookings, subscription bookings, total revenue and license revenue in our fiscal third quarter.  In addition, deferred revenue is at an all-time high of $18.8 million and our overall balance sheet remains strong.  Finally, we completed the Angoss integration during the quarter and have fully consolidated all back-office systems and operations.”

1 Recurring revenue represents the sum of subscription revenue plus maintenance revenue, divided by total revenue

Any statements contained in this press release that do not describe historical facts may constitute forward-looking statements as that term is defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Any such statements, including but not limited to those relating to results of operations, contained herein are based on current expectations, but are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from expectations. The factors that could cause actual future results to differ materially from current expectations include the following: risks associated with fluctuations in quarterly operating results due, among other factors, to the long sales cycle with enterprise customers and the size and timing of large customer orders; risks associated with acquisitions; the risk that our goodwill resulting from acquisitions may become impaired and require a write-down; limitations on the effectiveness of internal controls; rapid technological change; Datawatch’s dependence on the introduction of new products and product enhancements and possible delays in those introductions; competition in the software industry generally, and in the markets for next generation analytics in particular; Datawatch's dependence on its principal products, proprietary software technology and software licensed from third parties; Datawatch’s concentration of customers in the financial sector; risks associated with international sales and operations; risks associated with indirect distribution channels and co-marketing arrangements, many of which were only recently established; risks associated with a subscription sales model; Datawatch’s dependence on its ability to hire and retain skilled personnel; disruption or failure of Datawatch’s technology systems that may result from a natural disaster, cyber-attack, security breach or other catastrophic event; risks related to actions by activist stockholders, including the amount of related costs incurred by Datawatch and the disruption caused to Datawatch’s business activities by these actions; and uncertainty and additional costs that may result from evolving regulation of corporate governance and public disclosure.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

We define non-GAAP net income (loss) as U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) net loss plus (i) the  effects of purchase accounting treatment of the deferred revenue fair value adjustment associated with the acquisition of Angoss, (ii) amortization associated with the purchase of certain intellectual property and other intangible assets, (iii) share-based compensation and (iv) transaction costs associated with the acquisition of Angoss, minus the payment received in respect of a stockholder’s short-swing stock trading profits. We discuss non-GAAP net income (loss) in our quarterly earnings releases and certain other communications as we believe non-GAAP net income (loss) is an important measure that is not calculated according to GAAP. We use non-GAAP net income (loss) in internal forecasts and models when establishing internal operating budgets, supplementing the financial results and forecasts reported to our Board of Directors and evaluating short-term and long-term operating trends in our operations. We believe that non-GAAP net income (loss) assists in providing an enhanced understanding of our underlying operational measures to manage the business, to evaluate performance compared to prior periods and the marketplace, and to establish operational goals. We believe that these non-GAAP financial adjustments are useful to investors because they allow investors to evaluate the effectiveness of the methodology and information used by management in our financial and operational decision-making.

Non-GAAP net income (loss) is a non-GAAP financial measure and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information provided in accordance with GAAP. This non-GAAP financial measure may not be computed in the same manner as similarly titled measures used by other companies. We expect to continue to incur expenses similar to the non-GAAP net loss financial adjustments described above, and investors should not infer from our presentation of this non-GAAP financial measure that these costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring.

The table below entitled “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures” reconciles the Company’s GAAP net loss to the Company’s non-GAAP net income (loss).

 (1Our non-GAAP net income (loss) eliminates the impact of the Angoss deferred revenue purchase accounting adjustments required by U.S. GAAP. U.S. GAAP requires an adjustment to the liability for acquired deferred revenue such that the liability approximates how much we, the acquirer, would have to pay a third party to assume the liability. We believe that eliminating the effects of purchase accounting treatment of the deferred revenue fair value adjustment associated with the acquisition of Angoss improves the comparability of revenues between periods. 
            
            
 (2) Amortization of intangibles & IP included in these amounts is as follows:       
   Cost of software licenses  $  173  $  67  $  379  $  1,053  
   Sales and marketing     246     21     440     63  
  Total amortization of intangibles & IP $  419  $  88  $  819  $  1,116  
            
  A portion of the purchase price of our acquisitions is generally allocated to intangible assets, such as intellectual property, and is subject to amortization. However, we do not acquire businesses on a predictable cycle. Additionally, the amount of an acquisition’s purchase price allocated to intangible assets and the term of its related amortization can vary significantly and are unique to each acquisition. Therefore, we believe that the presentation of non-GAAP net income (loss) that adjusts for the amortization of intangible assets provides our investors and others with a consistent basis for comparison across accounting periods. 
            
            
 (3) Share-based compensation expense included in these amounts is as follows:       
   Cost of maintenance and services  $  19  $  13  $  45  $  22  
   Sales and marketing     221     190     633     386  
   Engineering and product development     152     130     444     297  
   General and administrative     402     300     1,103     810  
  Total share-based compensation expense $  794  $  633  $  2,225  $  1,515  
            
  Share-based compensation is generally fixed at the time the stock-based instrument is granted and amortized over a period of several years. Although share-based compensation is an important aspect of the compensation of our employees and executives, the expense for the fair value of the stock-based instruments we utilize may bear little resemblance to the actual value realized upon the vesting or future exercise of the related stock-based awards. We believe that eliminating share-based compensation allows our investors to better understand the long-term performance of our core business. 
            
            
 (4) Acquisition transaction costs included in these amounts is as follows:       
   General and administrative  $  185  $  -  $  1,223  $  -  
  Total acquisition transaction costs $  185  $  -  $  1,223  $  -  
            
  These acquisition costs include all incremental expenses incurred to effect the acquisition of Angoss. Acquisition costs include advisory, legal, accounting, valuation, and other professional or consulting fees. We exclude the transaction and integration expenses from our non-GAAP net income (loss) as they are related to the acquisition of Angoss and thus have no direct correlation to the operation of our business, and because we believe that the non-GAAP net income (loss) excluding these costs provides meaningful supplemental information regarding our operational performance. In addition, excluding these costs from non-GAAP net income (loss) facilitates comparisons to our historical operating results.
