Medidata (NASDAQ:MDSO), the leading global provider of cloud-based solutions for clinical research in life sciences, today announced its financial results for the second quarter of 2014 and reiterated its revenue guidance.
“Medidata’s track record of strong growth, profitability and successful innovation gives us great confidence in our future ability to grow and extend our lead in the industry,” said Tarek Sherif, Medidata's chairman and chief executive officer. “Our market opportunity is significant and we are successfully executing on our near- and long-term plan. Reflecting on Medidata’s performance this quarter, we continue to benefit from many of the same positive trends we have seen over the past 18 months, including an improving funding environment for biotechnology companies and increased focus on improving drug development efficiency. We see this reflected in increased deal activity, new customer wins and greater multi-product adoption. Our ability to innovate and expand the breadth and relevance of our platform is fueling greater interest and awareness of our solutions across the globe and is contributing to our growing pipeline of opportunities.”
Second Quarter 2014 Results
- Total revenues for the second quarter of 2014 were $83.2 million, an increase of $15.1 million, or 22%, compared with $68.1 million in 2013. Subscription revenue was $68.9 million, an increase of 22% compared with the same period last year.
- GAAP operating income for the quarter was $7.1 million, compared with $8.8 million in the second quarter of 2013. Non-GAAP operating income* for the second quarter of 2014 was $18.4 million, compared with $17.5 million a year ago.
- GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2014 was $2.3 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, compared with $5.1 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2013. Adjusted non-GAAP net income* for the second quarter of 2014 was $9.4 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, compared with $9.5 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2013. See the non-GAAP reconciliation included in this release for full details of the non-GAAP adjustments.
- Total cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities were $418.5 million at the end of the second quarter of 2014, an increase of $278.1 million, or 198%, compared with $140.4 million at the end of the second quarter of 2013, primarily due to net proceeds from the convertible senior notes issued during 2013 and strong cash flows over the past year.
- Cash flow from operations was $24.1 million in the second quarter of 2014, compared with $26.2 million a year ago.
- Medidata’s customer base grew to 437, with 30 new clients added in the second quarter of 2014, an increase of 50% over the number of new clients added in the second quarter of 2013.
- 54% of customers had committed to multiple products at the end of the second quarter of 2014, up from 45% at the end of the second quarter of 2013.
- Partners continue to increase their commitments to Medidata for their technology outsourcing, with 2 top CROs signing enterprise deals. Partners also extended their ability to service non-Rave solutions, with accreditations for Medidata Patient Cloud™ as well as other solutions.
- Billings were $78 million in the second quarter of 2014, a 19% increase over the second quarter of 2013.
- Subscription backlog for the remainder of the year as of June 30, 2014 increased to $133 million, an increase of $23 million year over year. Remaining subscription backlog does not include revenues associated with intra-year renewals of $2 million.
- Medidata's overall revenue retention rate was nearly 100%.
“Our strong second quarter results are highlighted by solid, profitable growth, record cash collections and stellar renewal activity,” said Cory Douglas, Medidata’s chief financial officer. “I am particularly pleased with the strength of our execution and disciplined strategic investments in the quarter. Looking ahead, we see an acceleration of subscription revenue growth and record profitability in the second half of the year.”
For the full year 2014, the company expects:
- Revenues between $340.0 and $345.0 million.
- Professional services revenues in the mid $50.0 million range.
- Non-GAAP operating income between $80.0 and $83.0 million. Based on current estimates, this would equate to GAAP operating income between $28.5 and $31.5 million.**
- Adjusted non-GAAP net income, which includes the tax affected adjustments primarily from stock-based compensation, non-cash interest expense associated with convertible senior notes and amortization at a 40% effective tax rate, between $41.0 and $44.0 million. Based on current estimates, this would equate to GAAP net income between $9.0 and $12.0 million.**
- While changes in the stock price could change the fully diluted share count, the company is assuming 55.1 million fully diluted shares.
**The current estimated GAAP equivalents to our Non-GAAP guidance reflect the impact of approximately $5.0 million on a pre-tax basis of additional stock based compensation expenses relative to our prior outlook.

*Non-GAAP Financial Information
Medidata provides non-GAAP operating income, net income and net income per share applicable to common stockholders data as additional information for its operating results. These measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. Non-GAAP operating income excludes the impact of depreciation, amortization of intangible assets associated with acquisitions, stock-based compensation expense, and an adjustment to the fair value of contingent consideration. Adjusted non-GAAP net income excludes the impact of tax-affected amortization of intangible assets associated with acquisitions, stock-based compensation expense, an adjustment to the fair value of contingent consideration, and non-cash interest expense on convertible senior notes. Management uses these non-GAAP measures to evaluate its financial results, develop budgets, manage expenditures, and as an important factor in determining variable compensation. In addition, investors frequently have requested information from management regarding depreciation, amortization and other non-cash charges, such as share-based compensation, and management believes, based on discussions with investors, that these non-GAAP measures enhance investors’ ability to assess Medidata’s historical and projected future financial performance. While management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information to investors, there are limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures. One limitation of non-GAAP operating income is that it excludes depreciation and amortization, which represents the periodic costs of certain capitalized tangible and intangible assets used in generating revenues in our business. Medidata compensates for these limitations by using these non-GAAP financial measures as supplements to GAAP financial measures and by reviewing the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable GAAP financial measures. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP results, which are attached to this press release.

|(2) During the third quarter of 2013, we issued $287.5 million in convertible senior notes (the "Notes") with a coupon interest rate of 1.00%. Interest is paid semiannually on February 1 and August 1 over the five-year term of the notes. In connection with the Notes, we are required to recognize non-cash interest expense, including amortization of debt discount and issuance costs, in accordance with accounting guidance for convertible debt that may be settled in cash. We exclude this incremental non-cash interest expense for purposes of calculating adjusted non-GAAP net income. We believe that excluding these expenses from our non-GAAP measures is useful to investors because such incremental non-cash interest expense does not generate a cash outflow for the company and the debt issuance costs do not represent a cash outflow for the company except in the period the Notes were issued; therefore both are not indicative of our continuing operations or meaningful when comparing current results to past results.|

Non-GAAP operating income excludes the impact of depreciation, amortization of intangible assets associated with acquisitions, stock-based compensation expense, and adjustment to the fair value of contingent consideration. Adjusted non-GAAP net income excludes the impact of tax affected amortization of intangible assets associated with acquisitions, stock-based compensation expense, adjustment to the fair value of contingent consideration, and non-cash interest expense on convertible senior notes.

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.
