 Synchronoss Technologies Announces Second Quarter 2019 Results
   Monday, August 05, 2019 4:00:00 PM ET

BRIDGEWATER, N.J., Aug. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Synchronoss Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: SNCR), a global leader and innovator in cloud, messaging, digital and IoT platforms and products, today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2019.

Second quarter highlights:

  • Revenue was $77.8 million, including 80.4 percent recurring revenue, up 1.4 percent compared to $76.7 million in the second quarter of 2018.
  • GAAP net loss for the quarter was $25.0 million, or 61 cents per share, compared to $47.3 million or $1.20 per share in the prior year’s second quarter.
  • Non-GAAP net loss from continuing operations was $11.3 million or 28 cents per share, compared to $18.9 million or 48 cents per share in the prior year’s second quarter.
  • Synchronoss delivered $8.7 million of adjusted EBITDA, compared to break-even adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of 2018. Adjusted EBITDA margin in the second quarter was 11.1 percent compared to zero percent in last year’s second quarter.

Glenn Lurie, president and chief executive officer, stated, “The second quarter results demonstrate continued progress for Synchronoss. We have now delivered four consecutive quarters of positive adjusted EBITDA, combined with year over year growth in both revenue and EBITDA, enabled by our ongoing focus on meeting customer needs and cost containment. Revenue increased 1.4 percent from the comparable quarter in 2018, and down compared to Q1 2019 as expected, due to seasonality, the large messaging license we recorded during the first quarter, and other items. I’m very pleased with our momentum on the new business development front, as we expanded on our success in 2019 with a new deal for our Out-Of-The-Box Experience (OOBE) platform with AT&T, one of the leading global carriers; a new agreement with Wireless Advocates and Telkom Indonesia for our DXP platform; new IoT partnerships with Arrow Electronics and Tridium, and a Smart Buildings deployments with Rackspace, in partnership with Microsoft and their Azure Cloud Service. Between the deals we have announced in the first quarter of 2019 and those that are in our pipeline and expected to close in the second half, we believe we can deliver accelerating revenue growth through the balance of 2019 and continued improvement into 2020.”

  • We are partnering with Microsoft to deliver an industry-leading Smart Buildings solution. Our first initiative is a live proof of concept with global technology services provider Rackspace, deploying a smart buildings service to monitor, control, and optimize energy usage and reduce costs at Rackspace’s one-million-square-foot San Antonio headquarters.
  • Synchronoss also announced a partnership with Arrow Electronics, a leading global value-added supply chain and logistics partner to over 200,000 customers worldwide, in which the Synchronoss Smart Buildings Platform will combine with Arrow’s expertise in creating and configuring hardware-based in-building management systems. This partnership will deliver a single, integrated package which telecom operators, system integrators and other service providers can offer to large multi-national companies and organizations to remotely manage their premises’ on-site automated features.
  • Synchronoss is today announcing that it has signed a Developer Agreement with Tridium, a subsidiary of Honeywell and one of the global leaders in smart buildings, to integrate its flagship open framework, Niagara, with the Synchronoss Smart Buildings Solutions to provide data-rich insights for enterprise customers and bring new digital solutions to Tridium's partners across the globe. Synchronoss and Tridium will deliver a scalable solution that provides complete visibility via a single pane-of-glass view into building facility systems as well as the ability to act on real-time alerts, resulting in increased efficiencies, cost savings and security.
  • Earlier this quarter, Synchronoss announced that AT&T will expand how it uses the Synchronoss Out-of-the-Box-Experience (OOBE) by integrating additional mobile offerings into its digital customer onboarding process. This allows new and current AT&T subscribers to effortlessly select value-added third-party products and services offered by AT&T during their device upgrading or activation process and enables frictionless personalized digital journeys as well as the opportunity to drive net new revenue.

Other new business deals announced by Synchronoss in 2019 include:

  • The company signed a substantial new customer for its white label cloud platform, which is expected to launch in the third quarter. Synchronoss expects to provide additional details on this new cloud deal at that time.
  • A partnership with Amazon, in which Synchronoss will become a global service integrator of Amazon products with mobile operators worldwide. As part of this agreement, the Synchronoss DXP platform will be utilized to enable mobile network operators to offer Amazon consumer services such as Amazon Prime, Prime Video, and Amazon Music, and others directly to subscribers as part of their invoice. Amazon and Synchronoss have identified the first six worldwide mobile operators that will be launched under this partnership, and during the quarter we initiated our first integration projects using our DXP Platform. We plan to share more details as these operators launch Amazon services through our efforts.
  • The company joined Microsoft’s Internet of Things (IoT) Accelerate Program and will develop and offer best-of-breed Smart Buildings solutions for enterprises globally.

David Clark, chief financial officer, added, ”We continue to deliver on our commitment to investors, and financial metrics continue to improve materially for Synchronoss, as demonstrated by the second quarter results. Adjusted EBITDA was $ 8.7 million, a significant improvement from break-even adjusted EBITDA in last year’s second quarter. This was in turn driven by a 15.4 percent improvement in adjusted gross margins, and a 32 percent or $10.9 million reduction in selling, general, and administrative expense, compared to last year’s second quarter. At quarter end, Synchronoss had $78.9 million of cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities, giving the company ample liquidity to fund ongoing operations and repay the remaining $47 million balance on its convertible debt when it matures in August.”

A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results has been provided in the financial statement tables included in this press release. An explanation of these measures is included below under the heading "Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Synchronoss has provided in this release selected financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with GAAP. This information includes historical non-GAAP revenues, gross profit, operating income (loss), net income (loss), effective tax rate, earnings (loss) per share and cash flows from operating activities. Synchronoss uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing its financial results and believes they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating Synchronoss’ ongoing operational performance. Synchronoss believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends, and in comparing its financial results with other companies in Synchronoss’ industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. As noted, the non-GAAP financial results discussed above add back fair value stock-based compensation expense, acquisition-related costs which includes integration costs, restructuring and cease-use lease expense, deferred compensation expense related to earn outs and amortization of intangibles associated with acquisitions.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures as detailed above. As previously mentioned, a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results has been provided in the financial statement tables included in this press release.
