Castlight Health Announces First Quarter 2014 Results

Castlight Health, Inc. (NYSE: CSLT), a pioneer of the Enterprise Healthcare Cloud, today announced results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

“We had a very strong first quarter across our business,” said Giovanni Colella, M.D., co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, Castlight Health. “Demand continues to grow from large enterprises interested in adopting Castlight’s Enterprise Healthcare Cloud platform to gain control over their healthcare spending. During the first quarter we added customers from diverse sectors, including large employers such as Comcast, Freescale Semiconductor and the State of Kansas.”

Colella continued, “Further, we executed 29 customer implementations during the first quarter, including successful launches for a number of Fortune 500 companies. This was nearly three times as many deployments as we had executed in any previous quarter, which gives us great confidence in our ability to meet the increasing demand that we are seeing in the market.”

Financial Performance for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2014

  • Total revenue for the first quarter of 2014 was $8.4 million, an increase of 339% from the first quarter of 2013. Subscription revenue was $7.5 million, an increase of 329% on a year-over-year basis. Professional services revenue was $0.9 million, an increase of 443% compared with the same period last year.
  • Gross margin for the first quarter of 2014 was 21.4%, compared to a gross loss of 70.8% in the first quarter of 2013. Non-GAAP gross margin for the first quarter of 2014 was 23.1% compared to a gross loss of 69.2% in the first quarter of 2013.
  • Operating loss for the first quarter of 2014 was $24.3 million, compared to an operating loss of $11.5 million during the first quarter of 2013. Non-GAAP operating loss for the first quarter of 2014 was $19.3 million, compared to a non-GAAP operating loss of $11.1 million during the first quarter of 2013.
  • Net loss per basic and diluted share was ($0.90) in the first quarter of 2014, compared to a loss of ($1.24) per share in the first quarter of 2013.

For both GAAP and non-GAAP purposes, the weighted average basic and diluted share count for the first quarter of 2014 was 27.0 million compared to 9.3 million in the first quarter of 2013.
  • Total cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities were $239.7 million at the end of the first quarter of 2014, up from $67.2 million at the end of last quarter.

Cash used in operations for the first quarter of 2014 was $16.1 million, compared to $12.2 million used in operations in the first quarter of 2013.

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

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement Castlight Health’s financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), we also use and provide investors and others with non-GAAP measures of certain components of financial performance, including non-GAAP gross margin (loss), non-GAAP operating expense, non-GAAP operating loss and non-GAAP net loss per share. These non-GAAP financial measures differ from GAAP financial measures in that they exclude stock-based compensation, expense for a warrant issued to a third party service provider and the associated tax impact of these items, where applicable.

We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information to investors and others, facilitate the analysis of the company’s core operating results and comparison of operating results across reporting periods, and can help enhance overall understanding of the company’s historical financial performance.

We have provided a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, except that we have not reconciled our non-GAAP operating loss and net loss per share guidance for the second quarter and full fiscal year of 2014 to comparable GAAP operating loss and net loss per share guidance because we do not provide guidance for share-based compensation expense and warrant expense, which are reconciling items between GAAP and non-GAAP operating loss. The factors that may impact our future share-based compensation expense and warrant expense are out of our control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted, and therefore we are unable to provide such guidance without unreasonable effort.

These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or in isolation from, measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Further, these non-GAAP measures may differ from the non-GAAP information used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore comparability may be limited. Castlight Health encourages investors and others to review the company’s financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction.

We all know that end users experience the Internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business.
