Fiscal Q2 2014 Financial Results

Total revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2014 (Q2 2014) was $17.9 million, an increase of 14% compared to the same period in 2013. For the six month period ended June 30, 2014 (H1 2014), revenue was $33.6 million, an increase of 16% compared to $29.0 million in the same year ago period.

Subscription revenue was $12.6 million in Q2 2014, an increase of 28% from $9.9 million for the same period in 2013. For H1 2014, subscription revenue was $24.0 million versus $19.0 million in 2013. The increase was due to additional revenue from contracts secured with new customers during fiscal 2013 and in the first quarter of 2014 and expansion of existing customer subscriptions.

Professional services revenue was $5.0 million in Q2 2014, compared to $5.4 million for the same period in 2013. For H1 2014, professional services revenue was $9.0 million as compared to $9.2 million in the same year ago period. The change was due to a significant engagement with an existing customer that ended in December of 2013 largely offset by services provided for deployment of new customers acquired second half of 2013 and first quarter of 2014.

Gross profit was $12.3 million in Q2 2014, compared to $11.2 million for the same period in 2013. For H1 2014, gross profit was $23.1 million as compared to $20.2 million in the same year ago period. As a percentage of revenue, gross profit was 69% in the second quarter and H1 2014 compared to 71% in the second quarter of 2013 and 70% in H1 2013. This change is due to the investment in additional Professional Services headcount and data centre capacity undertaken in the second quarter to support growth.

Adjusted EBITDA was $3.3 million in Q2 2014, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $3.8 million in the same period last year. The change is primarily attributable to certain non-capitalized costs incurred to support the initial public offering and higher operating expenses, specifically, professional services and research and development resources. H1 2014 Adjusted EBITDA was $7.2 million compared to $5.8 million in H1 2013. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA over the prior period was primarily due to increase in revenue and gross profit. A reconciliation of net loss to Adjusted EBITDA is provided below.

Net loss was $5.3 million or $0.34 per basic and diluted share in Q2 2014 compared to a net loss of $3.5 million or $0.21 per basic and diluted share for the same period in 2013. The increase in loss was primarily driven by a higher fair value, non-cash adjustment on the redeemable preferred share liability.  Net loss in H1 2014 was $3.3 million compared to $6.1M in the same year ago period due to a lower fair value, non-cash adjustment on the redeemable preferred share liability.  The redeemable preferred shares were converted into common shares in connection with the initial public offering and will no longer affect our operating results.

Adjusted profit, which excludes the fair value adjustment on the redeemable preferred share liability and non-cash share-based compensation, was $1.9 million in Q2 2014, compared to $2.7 million in the same year ago period. The change was the result of higher expenses due to investment in professional services and research and development resources and costs incurred to support the initial public offering. For H1 2014, Adjusted profit was $4.5 million compared to $3.9 million in the same period last year. The increase in Adjusted profit during the first half of 2014 was the result of an increase in revenue and gross profit compared to the first half of 2013 . A reconciliation of net loss to Adjusted profit is provided below.

Cash generated by operating activities was $7.3 million for H1 2014 as compared to $6.4 million in H1 2014. The increase was the result of higher deferred revenues received as cash in the period which resulted from the timing of subscription billings as well as a contract amendment with an existing customer.

Cash and cash equivalents were $50.5 million as at June 30, 2014 as compared to $13.8 million as at December 31, 2013. The increase is primarily due to the proceeds from our initial public offering net of repayment of the term loan, as well as cash from operations for the first six months of 2014.

Non-IFRS Measures

This news release contains non-IFRS measures, specifically, Adjusted profit, Adjusted diluted earnings per share, and Adjusted EBITDA.  We use Adjusted profited and Adjusted diluted earnings per share, which remove the impact of our redeemable preferred shares and stock option plans, to measure our performance as these measurements better align the reporting of our results and improve comparability against our peers. We use Adjusted EBITDA to provide investors with a supplemental measure of our operating performance and thus highlight trends in our core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on IFRS financial measures.  We believe that securities analysts, investors and other interested parties frequently use non-IFRS measures in the evaluation of issuers.  Management also uses non-IFRS measures in order to facilitate operating performance comparisons from period to period, prepare annual operating budgets and assess our ability to meet our capital expenditure and working capital requirements.  Adjusted profit, Adjusted diluted earnings per share and Adjusted EBITDA are not recognized, defined or standardized measures under IFRS. Our definition of Adjusted profit, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted diluted earnings per share will likely differ from that used by other companies (including our peers) and therefore comparability may be limited.  Non-IFRS measures should not be considered a substitute for or in isolation from measures prepared in accordance with IFRS. Investors are encouraged to review our financial statements and disclosures in their entirety and are cautioned not to put undue reliance on non-IFRS measures and view them in conjunction with the most comparable IFRS financial measures.

We have reconciled Adjusted profit and Adjusted EBITDA to the most comparable IFRS financial measure as follows:
