 Intuit Reports Second-quarter Revenue Up 10 Percent; QuickBooks Online Subscribers Grow 49 Percent
   Thursday, February 23, 2017 4:00:01 PM ET

Intuit Inc. (INTU ) announced financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2017, which ended Jan. 31.

"Our second fiscal quarter results reflect strong momentum across the business," said Brad Smith, Intuit’s chairman and chief executive officer.

"We continue to be pleased with how our long-term strategy in Small Business is playing out, driving momentum for the QuickBooks Online ecosystem. Our Small Business results are bolstered by product and platform innovation, improved product market fit outside of the U.S., and further expansion of our addressable market by targeting the self-employed segment.

"We are also in the midst of another highly competitive tax season. While the industry came out of the gates a bit slow, we are confident we have a strong and winning hand that combines innovation across the end-to-end experience, an effective marketing campaign, and great value for taxpayers.

"Experience tells us that every tax season is different, but there’s one thing we know for certain about the tax business: everyone needs to file by the April 18 deadline." Smith said.

Financial Highlights

For the second quarter, Intuit:

-- Reported revenue of $1.016 billion, up 10 percent.

-- Grew total QuickBooks Online subscribers 49 percent, to more than 1.87 million subscribers.

-- Grew QuickBooks Online subscribers outside the U.S. by 61 percent, to approximately 370,000 subscribers, with growth in the U.K., Australia and Canada.

-- Gained traction with QuickBooks Self-Employed customers growing to roughly 180,000 QuickBooks Online subscribers, up from 110,000 last quarter and 50,000 a year ago.

[B]   We compute our provision for or benefit from income taxes by
                         applying the estimated annual effective tax rate to income or loss
                         from recurring operations and adding the effects of any discrete
                         income tax items specific to the period.
                         In December
                         2015 the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016 was signed into
                         law. The Act includes a permanent reinstatement of the federal
                         research and experimentation credit that was retroactive to
                         January 1, 2015. We recorded a discrete tax benefit of
                         approximately $12 million for the retroactive effect during the
                         second quarter of fiscal 2016.
                         During the first quarter
                         of fiscal 2017, we elected to early adopt ASU 2016-09,
                         "Compensation--Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to
                         Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting." As required by ASU
                         2016-09, starting in fiscal 2017 we reflect excess tax benefits
                         recognized on stock-based compensation expense in the condensed
                         consolidated statements of operations as a component of the
                         provision for income taxes on a prospective basis.
                         We
                         recorded a $3 million tax benefit on income of $10 million for the
                         three months ended January 31, 2017. Our effective tax rate for
                         the six months ended January 31, 2017 was approximately 72%.
                         Excluding discrete tax items primarily related to share-based
                         compensation tax benefits resulting from the adoption of ASU
                         2016-09, our effective tax rate for both periods was 34% and did
                         not differ significantly from the federal statutory rate of 35%.
                         We
                         recorded a $1 million tax benefit on income of $28 million for the
                         three months ended January 31, 2016. Our effective tax rate for
                         the six months ended January 31, 2016 was approximately 87%.
                         Excluding discrete tax items primarily related to the permanent
                         reinstatement of the federal research and experimentation credit,
                         as well as including the effects of losses in certain
                         jurisdictions where we do not recognize a tax benefit, our
                         effective tax rate for those periods was approximately 35% and did
                         not differ significantly from the federal statutory rate of 35%.
                          
[C]                      In the third quarter of fiscal 2016 we completed the sales of our
                         Demandforce, QuickBase, and Quicken businesses for $463 million in
                         cash. We recorded a pre-tax gain of $354 million and a net gain of
                         $173 million on the disposal of these three businesses in fiscal
                         2016.
                         We classified our Demandforce, QuickBase, and
                         Quicken businesses as discontinued operations and have therefore
                         segregated their operating results from continuing operations in
                         our statements of operations for all periods presented. Net
                         revenue from discontinued operations was $56 million and $115
                         million for the three and six months ended January 31, 2016. Net
                         income from discontinued operations was not significant for the
                         three or six months ended January 31, 2016. Because the cash flows
                         of these businesses were not material for any period presented, we
                         have not segregated them on our statements of cash flows.

INTUIT INC. ABOUT NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

The accompanying press release dated February 23, 2017 contains non-GAAP financial measures. Table B1, Table B2 and Table E reconcile the non-GAAP financial measures in that press release to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). These non-GAAP financial measures include non-GAAP operating income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures do not reflect a comprehensive system of accounting, differ from GAAP measures with the same names, and may differ from non-GAAP financial measures with the same or similar names that are used by other companies.

We compute non-GAAP financial measures using the same consistent method from quarter to quarter and year to year. We may consider whether other significant items that arise in the future should be excluded from our non-GAAP financial measures.

We exclude the following items from all of our non-GAAP financial measures:

-- Share-based compensation expense

-- Amortization of acquired technology

-- Amortization of other acquired intangible assets

-- Goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges

-- Professional fees for business combinations

We also exclude the following items from non-GAAP net income (loss) and diluted net income (loss) per share:

-- Gains and losses on debt and equity securities and other investments

-- Income tax effects and adjustments

-- Discontinued operations

We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding Intuit’s operating results primarily because they exclude amounts that we do not consider part of ongoing operating results when planning and forecasting and when assessing the performance of the organization, our individual operating segments, or our senior management. Segment managers are not held accountable for share-based compensation expense, amortization, or the other excluded items and, accordingly, we exclude these amounts from our measures of segment performance. We believe that our non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate the comparison by management and investors of results for current periods and guidance for future periods with results for past periods.

The following are descriptions of the items we exclude from our non-GAAP financial measures.

Share-based compensation expenses. These consist of non-cash expenses for stock options, restricted stock units, and our Employee Stock Purchase Plan. When considering the impact of equity awards, we place greater emphasis on overall shareholder dilution rather than the accounting charges associated with those awards.

Amortization of acquired technology and amortization of other acquired intangible assets. When we acquire an entity, we are required by GAAP to record the fair values of the intangible assets of the entity and amortize them over their useful lives. Amortization of acquired technology in cost of revenue includes amortization of software and other technology assets of acquired entities. Amortization of other acquired intangible assets in operating expenses includes amortization of assets such as customer lists, covenants not to compete, and trade names.

Goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges. We exclude from our non-GAAP financial measures non-cash charges to adjust the carrying value of goodwill and other acquired intangible assets to their estimated fair values.

Professional fees for business combinations. We exclude from our non-GAAP financial measures the professional fees we incur to complete business combinations. These include investment banking, legal, and accounting fees.

Gains and losses on debt and equity securities and other investments. We exclude from our non-GAAP financial measures gains and losses that we record when we sell or impair available-for-sale debt and equity securities and other investments.

Income tax effects and adjustments. We use a long-term non-GAAP tax rate for evaluating operating results and for planning, forecasting, and analyzing future periods. This long-term non-GAAP tax rate excludes the income tax effects of the non-GAAP pre-tax adjustments described above, assumes the federal research and experimentation credit is continuously in effect, and eliminates the effects of non-recurring and period specific items which can vary in size and frequency. Based on our current long-term projections, we are using a long-term non-GAAP tax rate of 34% for fiscal 2016 and 33% for fiscal 2017. These rates are consistent with the average of our normalized fiscal year tax rate over a four year period that includes the past three fiscal years plus the current fiscal year forecast. We will evaluate this long-term non-GAAP tax rate on an annual basis and whenever any significant events occur which may materially affect this long-term rate. This long-term non-GAAP tax rate could be subject to change for various reasons including significant changes in our geographic earnings mix or fundamental tax law changes in major jurisdictions in which we operate.

Operating results and gains and losses on the sale of discontinued operations. From time to time, we sell or otherwise dispose of selected operations as we adjust our portfolio of businesses to meet our strategic goals. In accordance with GAAP, we segregate the operating results of discontinued operations as well as gains and losses on the sale of these discontinued operations from continuing operations on our GAAP statements of operations but continue to include them in GAAP net income or loss and net income or loss per share. We exclude these amounts from our non-GAAP financial measures.

The reconciliations of the forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures in Table E include all information reasonably available to Intuit at the date of this press release. These tables include adjustments that we can reasonably predict. Events that could cause the reconciliation to change include acquisitions and divestitures of businesses, goodwill and other asset impairments, and sales of available-for-sale debt securities and other investments.
