   Thursday, January 31, 2019 4:05:00 PM ET

PORTSMOUTH, N.H., Jan. 31, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bottomline Technologies (Nasdaq:EPAY), a leading provider of financial technology that helps make complex business payments simple, smart and secure, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended December 31, 2018.

Subscription and transaction revenues were $71.3 million for the second quarter, up 13%, or 14% on a constant currency basis, as compared to the second quarter of last year.  Revenues overall for the second quarter were $104.8 million, up 10%, or 11% on a constant currency basis, as compared to the second quarter of last year.  Constant currency growth is calculated as discussed in the “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” section that follows. 



GAAP net income for the second quarter was $6.0 million compared to a GAAP net income of $3.1 million for the second quarter of last year. GAAP net income per share was $0.14 in the second quarter compared to $0.08 in the second quarter of last year.

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter was $25.6 million compared to $22.5 million for the second quarter of last year.  Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter was 24% of overall revenue, consistent with the second quarter of last year. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as discussed in the “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” section that follows.

Core net income for the second quarter was $14.6 million compared to $12.2 million for the second quarter of last year and core earnings per share was $0.35 for the second quarter compared to $0.31 for the second quarter of last year. Core net income and core earnings per share exclude certain items as discussed in the “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” section that follows.

“Bottomline delivered a solid second quarter performance,” said Rob Eberle, President and CEO. “Our strong operating results reflected continued execution against our strategic plan.  We had notable customer wins across our business payments platforms as customers continued to choose Bottomline for innovative and highly secure business payments solutions. We are well positioned in the large business payments marketplace. Our product strategy and execution are targeted to drive sustained growth for years to come.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We have presented supplemental non-GAAP financial measures as part of this earnings release. The presentation of this non-GAAP financial information should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, our financial results presented in accordance with GAAP. Core net income, core earnings per share, constant currency information, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA as a percent of revenue are all non-GAAP financial measures.

Core net income and core earnings per share exclude certain items, specifically amortization of acquisition related intangible assets, stock-based compensation, acquisition and integration-related expenses, restructuring related costs, minimum pension liability adjustments, non-core charges associated with certain debt instruments, global enterprise resource planning (ERP) system implementation and other costs and other non-core or non-recurring gains or losses that may arise from time to time.

Non-core charges associated with our debt instruments consist of amortization of debt issuance and debt discount costs. Acquisition and integration-related expenses include legal and professional fees and other direct transaction costs associated with business and asset acquisitions, costs associated with integrating acquired businesses, including costs for transitional employees or services and integration related professional services costs and other incremental charges we incur as a direct result of acquisition and integration efforts. Global ERP system implementation and other costs relate to direct and incremental costs incurred in connection with our multi-phase implementation of a new, global ERP solution and the related technology infrastructure and costs related to our implementation of the new revenue recognition standard under US GAAP.

Periodically, such as in periods that include significant foreign currency volatility, we present certain metrics on a “constant currency” basis, to show the impact of period to period results normalized for the impact of foreign currency rate changes. We calculate constant currency information by translating prior period financial results using current period foreign exchange rates.

Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA as a percent of revenue represent our GAAP net income or loss, adjusted for charges related to interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization and other charges, as noted in the reconciliation that follows.

We believe that these supplemental non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they allow for an evaluation of the company with a focus on the performance of its core operations, including more meaningful comparisons of financial results to historical periods and to the financial results of less acquisitive peer and competitor companies. Our executive management team uses these same non-GAAP financial measures internally to assess the ongoing performance of the company. Additionally, the same non-GAAP information is used for planning purposes, including the preparation of operating budgets and in communications with our board of directors with respect to our core financial performance. Since this information is not a GAAP measurement of financial performance, there are material limitations to its usefulness on a stand-alone basis, including the lack of comparability of this presentation to the GAAP financial results of other companies.

(1)These securities are dilutive on a GAAP basis in periods where we report GAAP net income. These securities are anti-dilutive on a GAAP basis in periods where we report GAAP net loss.
  
(2)In computing diluted core earnings per share, we exclude the weighted average dilutive effect of shares issuable under our convertible senior notes to the extent that any such dilution would be offset by our note hedges; the note hedges would be considered an anti-dilutive security under GAAP.

(1)On July 1, 2018, we adopted an accounting standard update that changes the classification of certain pension related items. Accordingly, pension related benefits of approximately $0.2 million and $0.4 million were reclassified from income from operations to other expense, net for the three and six months ended December 31, 2017, respectively, in our consolidated statement of operations. For purposes of the reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA, we have presented pension related adjustments discretely, not as a component of other expense, net.
