SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Extreme Networks, Inc. («Extreme») (Nasdaq: EXTR) today released financial results for its fourth fiscal quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2020.

Fiscal Fourth Quarter Results: 

  • Revenue $215.5 million, down 15% year-over-year and up 3% quarter-over-quarter
  • GAAP EPS $(0.18), down from $(0.14) in Q4 last year
  • Non-GAAP EPS $0.03, down from $0.06 in Q4 last year
  • GAAP gross margin 56.0% compared to 55.1% in Q4 last year
  • Non-GAAP gross margin 59.4% compared to 59.2% in Q4 last year
  • GAAP operating margin (6.1)% compared to (4.8)% in Q4 last year
  • Non-GAAP operating margin 5.2%, compared to 4.9% in Q4 last year
  • Net cash provided by operating activities of $8.8 million
  • Free Cash Flow of $6.2 million

«During Q4 Extreme established itself as a critical business partner to our customers and partners with two industry-leading offers. We announced unparalleled choice of cloud management across all three public cloud platforms, and we set a new standard for access to cloud data and insights by offering unlimited data to cloud customers for the lifetime of their subscriptions. These actions helped us to substantially grow our lead generation during the quarter, which bodes well for future funnel growth. We achieved 4% sequential product revenue growth and grew our subscription and services revenue 18% year-over-year. We also grew our cloud new subscription bookings by 42% quarter-over-quarter. These trends highlight the pace at which our customers are embracing our solutions,» stated Ed Meyercord, President and CEO of Extreme Networks.   

«We are positioning Extreme for future growth and our outlook for Q1’21 reflects our expectations for continued sequential improvement in revenue and operating income. Heading into FY21 we have revamped our go-to-market by removing silos between channel and direct sales, strengthened key partner relationships, and segmented our sales organization to better serve specific customers. We also brought on a new Chief Revenue Officer who has a proven track record of helping organizations transition to more cloud and subscription-oriented businesses,» concluded Meyercord.

Remi Thomas, CFO of Extreme Networks noted: «Following the sequential improvement in revenue, return to non-GAAP profitability, and positive cash flow we achieved in Q4, we ended FY20 on a stronger note in a difficult environment. We are also increasingly confident in our outlook heading into FY21 as we are seeing improving customer demand in key verticals such as Government, Education, and Manufacturing. These trends are reflected in our better-than-seasonal Q1 outlook that calls for a 4% sequential increase in revenue.  We also remain confident in our margin outlook heading into FY21 as we reduced our non-GAAP operating expenses by $20 million, or 15%, year-over-year in Q4. We expect the combination of improved revenue and lowered costs and expenses to drive increased operating leverage throughout FY21. Finally, our balance sheet remains solid with $194 million of cash and cash equivalents on hand at the end of Q4.»

  • Q4 ending cash and cash equivalents balance was $193.9 million, a decrease of $2.5 million from the end of Q3. This was primarily driven by cash usage of $8.8 million for financing activities and $2.6 million for capital expenditures, partially offset by operating cash flow generation of $8.8 million.
  • Q4 accounts receivable balance was $122.7 million, with days sales outstanding of 52, an increase of 10 days from Q3 and a decrease of 11 days from Q4 last year. 
  • Q4 ending inventory was $62.6 million, a decrease of $3.6 million from Q3 and a decrease of $1.0 million from Q4 last year.  The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter decrease in inventory largely reflects demand planning considerations.
  • Q4 ending gross debt* was $420.8 million, a decrease of $4.8 million from the prior quarter. The sequential decrease reflects the principal debt payment of approximately $5 million. The $240.3 million increase from Q4 last year resulted from the acquisition of Aerohive Networks in August 2019. Net debt* of $226.9 million decreased by $2.2 million from $229.1 million in Q3.

Extreme uses the non-GAAP free cash flow metric as a measure of operating performance. Free cash flow represents GAAP net cash provided by operating activities, less purchases of property, plant and equipment.  Extreme considers free cash flow as useful information for management and investors regarding the amount of cash generated by the business after the purchases of property, plant and equipment, which can then be used to, among other things, invest in Extreme’s business, make strategic acquisitions, and strengthen the balance sheet.  A limitation of the utility of this non-GAAP free cash flow metric as a measure of financial performance is that it does not represent the total increase or decrease in the Company’s cash balance for the period. As shown in the table below (in thousands):

Extreme Networks, Inc.

Non-GAAP Measures of Financial Performance

To supplement the Company’s consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, («GAAP»), Extreme Networks uses non-GAAP measures of certain components of financial performance.  These non-GAAP measures include non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net revenue, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP earnings per diluted share and free cash flow.

Reconciliation to the nearest GAAP measure of all historical non-GAAP measures included in this press release can be found in the tables included with this press release.  In this press release, Extreme Networks also presents its target for non-GAAP expenses, which is expenses less stock-based compensation expense, acquisition and integration costs, acquired inventory adjustments, restructuring charges, amortization of acquired intangibles, inventory valuation adjustments, loss on lease contracts, and certain income tax adjustments.

Non-GAAP measures presented in this press release are not in accordance with or alternative measures prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.  In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles.  Non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with Extreme Networks’ results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP.  These non-GAAP measures should only be used to evaluate Extreme Networks’ results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures.

Extreme believes these non-GAAP measures when shown in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures enhance investors’ and management’s overall understanding of the Company’s current financial performance and the Company’s prospects for the future, including cash flows available to pursue opportunities to enhance stockholder value.  In addition, because Extreme Networks has historically reported certain non-GAAP results to investors, the Company believes the inclusion of non-GAAP measures provides consistency in the Company’s financial reporting.

For its internal planning process, and as discussed further below, Extreme’s management uses financial statements that do not include stock-based compensation expense, acquisition and integration costs, acquired inventory adjustment, amortization of intangibles, inventory valuation adjustments, restructuring charges, loss on lease contracts, and certain income tax adjustments.  Extreme’s management also uses non-GAAP measures, in addition to the corresponding GAAP measures, in reviewing the Company’s financial results.

As described above, Extreme excludes the following items from one or more of its non-GAAP measures when applicable.

Stock-based compensation. Consists of associated expenses for stock options, restricted stock awards and the Company’s Employee Stock Purchase Plan.  Extreme Networks excludes stock-based compensation expenses from its non-GAAP measures primarily because they are non-cash expenses that the Company does not believe are reflective of ongoing cash requirement related to its operating results. Extreme Networks expects to incur stock-based compensation expenses in future periods.

Acquired inventory adjustments. Purchase accounting adjustments relating to the mark up of acquired inventory to fair value less disposal costs.

Acquisition and integration costs. Acquisition and integration costs consist of specified compensation charges, software charges, legal and professional fees related to the acquisition of Aerohive in fiscal 2020 and the acquisition of the Campus Fabric and Data Center Businesses in fiscal 2018.  Extreme Networks excludes these expenses since they result from an event that is outside the ordinary course of continuing operations.

Amortization of intangibles. Amortization of intangibles includes the monthly amortization expense of intangible assets such as developed technology, customer relationships, trademarks and order backlog.  The amortization of the developed technology intangible is recorded in product cost of goods sold, while the amortization for the other intangibles are recorded in operating expenses.  Extreme Networks excludes these expenses since they result from an intangible asset and for which the period expense does not impact the operations of the business and are non-cash in nature.

Inventory valuation adjustments. Adjustments relating to the mark down of inventory due to duplication of products lines with acquisition of Aerohive net of recoveries on the sale of inventory marked down in previous quarters.

Restructuring charge. Restructuring expenses primarily consist of severance costs for employees which have no benefit to continuing operations and impairment of right-of-use assets, long-lived assets and other charges related to excess facilities. Extreme Networks excludes restructuring expenses since they result from events that occur outside of the ordinary course of continuing operations.

Loss on lease contracts. The loss on lease contracts refers to leased facilities to which the Company has a contractual obligation but will not receive a future financial benefit.

Income taxes. Income tax adjustment relates to a tax benefit resulting from changes introduced by tax reform related to US net operating losses allowing the release of US valuation allowance as well as a separate tax benefit resulting from the release of a foreign valuation allowance given anticipated future profitability.

We do not reflect a tax effect associated with the non-GAAP operating adjustments as the adjustments are primarily related to the US entity which has a full valuation of various loss carryforward tax attributes.
