Infoblox Reports Fiscal First Quarter 2016 Results

Company Reports Record Revenue; Announces $100 Million Share Repurchase Authorization, to Include $50 Million Accelerated Share Repurchase

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - November 30, 2015) - Infoblox (NYSE: BLOX), the network control company, today reported its financial results for its first fiscal quarter October 31, 2015. Total net revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 was a record $94.0 million, an increase of 40.9% on a year-over-year basis.

On a GAAP basis, the Company reported a net loss of $1.5 million, or $0.03 net loss per fully diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2016, compared with a net loss of $10.2 million, or $0.18 net loss per fully diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2015.

The Company reported non-GAAP net income of $7.8 million, or $0.13 diluted net income per share on a non-GAAP weighted-average share basis, for the first quarter of fiscal 2016, compared with non-GAAP net income of $3.0 million, or $0.05 diluted net income per share on a non-GAAP weighted-average share basis, for the first quarter of fiscal 2015.

The GAAP to non-GAAP reconciling items for the first quarters of fiscal years 2016 and 2015 can be found in the "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures" attached to this press release.

"Infoblox offers best-of-breed DDI and DNS security solutions that drove record first quarter revenue as we executed well across key operating metrics," said Jesper Andersen, president and chief executive officer of Infoblox. "We saw strong revenue growth across all major geographies, and security revenue exceeded $10 million in the quarter," continued Andersen. "The authorization of a $100 million share repurchase program, including a $50 million accelerated share repurchase, underscores the confidence we have in our business, and demonstrates our commitment to returning value to stockholders. Looking forward, we see multiple growth drivers for our business and believe we are well positioned to execute on the opportunities ahead."

Financial Outlook

Infoblox announced its outlook of anticipated results for the second fiscal quarter ending January 31, 2016 and fiscal year ending July 31, 2016. This outlook is based on a number of assumptions that it believes are reasonable at the time of this earnings release. Information regarding potential risks that could cause the actual results to differ from these forward-looking statements is set forth below and in Infoblox's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

For the second fiscal quarter ending January 31, 2016, the Company currently expects:

  • Total net revenue in the range of $93 million to $95 million;
  • Non-GAAP gross margin to be in the range of 78% to 79%;
  • Non-GAAP operating margin in the range of 12% to 14%; and
  • Non-GAAP diluted net income per share ("non-GAAP EPS") to be in the range of $0.12 to $0.14, assuming approximately 61 million shares on a non-GAAP diluted weighted-average share basis.

For the fiscal year ending July 31, 2016, the Company currently expects:

  • Total net revenue in the range of $370 million to $380 million; and
  • Non-GAAP operating margin in the range of 10% to 12%

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our financial results presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), this press release and the accompanying tables and the related earnings conference call contain certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP gross profit and gross margin, non-GAAP operating income and operating margin, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP EPS and non-GAAP diluted weighted-average shares outstanding. We also provide second fiscal quarter 2016 estimates for net revenue, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP EPS and non-GAAP diluted weighted-average shares outstanding and fiscal 2016 estimates for net revenue and non-GAAP operating margin. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are helpful in understanding our past financial performance and future results. Our non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our management regularly uses our supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand and manage our business and forecast future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and are not necessarily comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Our non-GAAP financial measures include adjustments based on the following items:

Stock-based compensation expenses: We have excluded the effect of stock-based compensation from our non-GAAP operating results. Although stock-based compensation is a key incentive offered to our employees, we continue to evaluate our business performance excluding stock-based compensation expenses. Stock-based compensation expenses will recur in future periods.

Amortization of intangible assets: We have excluded the effect of amortization of intangible assets from our non-GAAP operating results. Amortization of intangible assets is a non-cash expense, and it is not part of our core operations. Investors should note that the use of intangible assets contributed to revenues earned during the periods presented and will contribute to future period revenues as well.

Acquisition related expenses: Acquisition related expenses may include transaction costs, costs for transitional employees, other acquired employee related retention costs, integration related professional services, adjustments to the fair value of the acquisition related contingent consideration, and the write-down of certain acquired in-progress research and development intangibles. We believe that to the extent we incur significant expenses in connection with our acquisitions, it is useful for investors to understand the effects of these items on our total operating expenses.

Our non-GAAP Financial Measures are described as follows:

Non-GAAP gross profit and gross margin. Non-GAAP gross profit is gross profit as reported on our consolidated statements of operations, excluding the impact of stock-based compensation and intangible asset amortization expense. Non-GAAP gross margin is non-GAAP gross profit divided by net revenue.

Non-GAAP operating income and operating margin. Non-GAAP operating income is income (loss) from operations as reported on our consolidated statements of operations, excluding the impact of stock-based compensation, intangible asset amortization expense and acquisition related expenses. Non-GAAP operating margin is non-GAAP operating income divided by net revenue.

Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP EPS. Non-GAAP net income is net income (loss) as reported on our consolidated statements of operations, excluding the impact of stock-based compensation, intangible asset amortization expense and acquisition related expenses with income taxes adjusted to reflect our estimated long-term effective tax rate on a non-GAAP basis. Non-GAAP EPS is non-GAAP net income divided by non-GAAP diluted weighted average shares outstanding.

For reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, please see the section of the accompanying tables titled, "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures."
