First Quarter 2017 Detailed Results

First quarter 2017 total revenue was $105.0 million, up 28% compared to the first quarter of 2016. First quarter 2017 Mailing and Shipping revenue (which includes service, product and insurance revenue but excludes Customized Postage and Other revenue) was $102.6 million, up 30% versus the first quarter of 2016. First quarter 2017 Customized Postage revenue was $2.4 million, down 7% versus the first quarter of 2016.

First quarter 2017 GAAP income from operations was $34.6 million and GAAP net income was $33.1 million. GAAP net income per share was $1.82 based on 18.2 million fully diluted shares outstanding. This compares to first quarter 2016 GAAP income from operations of $22.2 million and GAAP net income of $13.2 million or $0.71 per share based on fully diluted shares outstanding of 18.7 million. First quarter 2017 GAAP income from operations, GAAP net income and GAAP income per fully diluted share increased by 56%, 150% and 157% year-over-year, respectively.

First quarter 2017 GAAP income from operations included $11.4 million of non-cash stock-based compensation expense and $4.0 million of non-cash amortization of acquired intangibles. First quarter 2017 GAAP net income also included $93 thousand of non-cash amortization of debt issuance costs. Excluding the non-cash stock-based compensation expense and non-cash amortization of acquired intangibles, first quarter 2017 non-GAAP income from operations was $50.0 million. Also excluding non-cash amortization of debt issuance costs, first quarter 2017 non-GAAP pre-tax income was $49.3 million. First quarter 2017 non-GAAP income tax expense was $16.0 million, which was $15.3 million higher than the $660 thousand GAAP income tax expense for the quarter. The higher non-GAAP tax expense reflects the tax impact on the non-GAAP pre-tax income at a non-GAAP effective tax rate of 32.5%, which was materially higher than the actual GAAP effective tax rate for the quarter. See the section later in this press release entitled "About Non-GAAP Financial Measures" for more information on how non-GAAP taxes are calculated. Taking into account the non-GAAP adjustments, first quarter 2017 non-GAAP adjusted income was $33.2 million or $1.83 per share based on 18.2 million fully diluted shares outstanding.

First quarter 2016 GAAP income from operations included $7.5 million of non-cash stock-based compensation expense, $3.3 million of non-cash amortization of acquired intangibles and $0.6 million of non-recurring acquisition related expenses. Excluding the non-cash stock-based compensation expense, non-cash amortization of acquired intangibles and acquisition related expenses, first quarter 2016 non-GAAP income from operations was $33.6 million. First quarter 2016 GAAP pre-tax income also included $93 thousand of non-cash amortization of debt issuance costs. Also excluding non-cash amortization of debt issuance costs, first quarter 2016 non-GAAP pre-tax income was $32.8 million.

First quarter 2016 non-GAAP income tax expense as reported last year was $800 thousand. In the first quarter of 2016, the Company still had significant tax assets to utilize and was paying the alternative minimum tax; however as of first quarter 2017, the Company had utilized the majority of those tax assets and expected to be a regular cash taxpayer for 2017. As a result, the Company adopted a new methodology in the first quarter of 2017 for calculating non-GAAP tax expense. See the section later in this press release entitled "About Non-GAAP Financial Measures" for more information on how non-GAAP taxes were calculated in 2016 and 2017. The Company has recast the non-GAAP first quarter of 2016 financial results in this release to conform to the tax methodology used in the first quarter 2017 as the Company believes this presentation is the most useful for investors wishing to compare period over period results. The recast non-GAAP tax expense for the first quarter of 2016 is $11.7 million using the 2016 effective tax rate of 35.7%. As so recast, first quarter 2016 non-GAAP adjusted income was $21.1 million or $1.13 per share based on 18.7 million fully diluted shares outstanding.

Therefore, first quarter 2017 non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP adjusted income and non-GAAP adjusted income per fully diluted share increased by 49%, 57% and 62% year-over-year, respectively.

Non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP adjusted income and non-GAAP adjusted income per share are described further in the "About Non-GAAP Financial Measures" section of this press release and are reconciled to the corresponding GAAP measures in the following tables (unaudited):

First Quarter GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA

First quarter 2017 GAAP net income was $33.1 million, up 150% compared to $13.2 million in the first quarter of 2016.

First quarter 2017 non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was $51.2 million, up 47% compared to $34.8 million in the first quarter of 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure which is described further in the "About Non-GAAP Financial Measures" section of this press release and is reconciled to GAAP net income in the following table (unaudited):

Taxes

In the first quarter of 2017, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-09, Compensation-Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvement to Employee Share based Payment Accounting (ASU 2016-09), which requires us, among other items, to record excess tax benefits as a reduction of the provision for income taxes in the income statements, whereas they were previously recognized in equity. The impact of adoption has been reflected in our income statement for the period ended March 31, 2017.

For the first quarter of 2017, the Company reported a GAAP income tax expense of $660 thousand, representing an effective tax rate of 1.9%, which was significantly lower than our effective tax rate of 35.7% for 2016. The lower effective tax rate was primarily related to the tax benefits resulting from employee option exercises in the first quarter of 2017 and the associated change in accounting treatment under ASU 2016-09. As discussed below under the heading "About Non-GAAP Financial Measures", we believe our effective tax rate for 2017 will be approximately 32.5%. Accordingly, the first quarter 2017 effective rate of 1.9% should not be assumed to apply for 2017 as a whole and our after tax income during the remainder of 2017 will likely be subject to a materially higher rate than is reflected in our after tax results for the first quarter of 2017. Our first quarter 2017 GAAP net income should also be understood to have been positively impacted by the low effective tax rate applicable specifically to the quarter.

Share Repurchase and Debt Repayment

During the first quarter 2017, the Company repurchased approximately 356 thousand shares at a total cost of approximately $43.9 million. These first quarter share repurchases were under the current share repurchase program that was approved by the Board of Directors and authorized the Company to repurchase up to $90 million of stock through May 8, 2017. As of May 3, 2017, the Company has repurchased a total of approximately 739 thousand shares at a total cost of approximately $86.0 million under the current plan.

On April 25, 2017, the Board of Directors approved a new share repurchase program that will take effect upon expiration of the current plan on May 8, 2017 and authorizes the Company to repurchase up to another $90 million of stock over the six months following its effective date.

During the first quarter 2017, the Company made required principal repayments of $1.5 million and optional repayments of $10.0 million against the borrowings under the Company's existing credit agreement related to the Endicia acquisition. As of March 31, 2017, the total debt under the credit agreement excluding debt issuance costs was $137.3 million.

Summary of our Updated Business Outlook

Today the company increased its 2017 GAAP financial outlook as follows:

  • We expect total 2017 revenue to be in a range of approximately $405 million to $430 million; this compares to previous guidance of $400 million to $425 million
  • We expect GAAP net income per fully diluted share to be in a range of approximately $4.78 to $5.69; this compares to previous guidance of $4.20 to $5.10

The above GAAP numbers adjusted as detailed below result in the following non-GAAP financial outlook:

  • We expect non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA to be in a range of approximately $205 million to $225 million; this compares to previous guidance of $200 million to $220 million.
  • We expect non-GAAP adjusted income per fully diluted share is expected to be in a range of $7.00 to $8.00; this compares to previous guidance of $6.00 to $7.00.

Detailed Discussion of our Updated Business Outlook

For 2017, the Company currently expects total revenue to be in a range of approximately $405 million to $430 million; this compares to previous guidance of $400 million to $425 million.

For 2017, the Company currently expects GAAP net income to be in a range of approximately $90 million to $103 million; this compares to previous guidance of $80 million to $92 million. The expected GAAP net income range includes depreciation and amortization expense of approximately $22 million, stock-based compensation expense of approximately $46 million, interest expense and other income, net of approximately $5 million and income tax expense of approximately $43 million to $50 million. Excluding the depreciation and amortization expense, stock-based compensation expense, interest expense and other income, net and income tax expense, we expect non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA to be in a range of approximately $205 million to $225 million; this compares to previous guidance of $200 million to $220 million.

The following table is provided to facilitate a reconciliation of 2017 expected non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA to expected GAAP net income:

Income tax expense $43.2 $49.7
Total adjustments excluded from adjusted EBITDA $115.2 $121.7
     
Adjusted EBITDA $205.0 $225.0
     

For 2017, the Company currently expects GAAP net income per fully diluted share to be in a range of approximately $4.78 to $5.69; this compares to previous guidance of $4.20 to $5.10. The expected GAAP net income per fully diluted share range includes non-cash stock-based compensation expense of approximately $46 million, non-cash amortization of acquired intangibles expense of approximately $16 million and non-cash amortization of debt issuance costs of approximately $0.4 million. Excluding the stock-based compensation expense, amortization of acquired intangibles expense and amortization of debt issuance costs and including higher expected non-GAAP income taxes of approximately $20 million from the expected tax effects of these adjustments at an assumed 32.5% effective tax rate, non-GAAP adjusted income per fully diluted share is expected to be in a range of $7.00 to $8.00; this compares to previous guidance of $6.00 to $7.00.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, Stamps.com uses non-GAAP measures of certain components of financial performance. These non-GAAP measures include non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP adjusted income, non-GAAP adjusted income per fully diluted share and adjusted EBITDA. Non-GAAP adjusted income per fully diluted share is calculated as adjusted non-GAAP net income divided by fully diluted shares. Prior to the second quarter 2016, the Company referred to non-GAAP adjusted income as non-GAAP net income. Adjusted EBITDA as calculated in this press release represents earnings before interest and other expense, net, interest and other income, net, income tax expense or benefit, depreciation and amortization and excludes certain items, such as stock-based compensation expense, described in this release used to reconcile GAAP to non-GAAP income from operations. The presentation of non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures may differ from similarly titled measures used by other companies. Reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures included in this press release to the corresponding GAAP measures can be found in the financial tables of this earnings release.

Non-GAAP financial measures are provided to enhance investors' overall understanding of the Company's financial performance and prospects for the future and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. The Company believes the non-GAAP measures that exclude certain non-cash items including stock-based compensation expense, amortization of acquired intangibles, amortization of debt issuance costs, contingent consideration charges and income tax adjustments, and exclude certain expenses such as acquisition related expenses and litigation settlement expenses, provide meaningful supplemental information regarding financial performance by excluding certain expenses and benefits that may not be reflective of core business operating results. The Company believes that non-GAAP financial measures, when viewed with GAAP results and the accompanying reconciliation, enhance the comparability of results against prior periods and allow for greater transparency of financial results. Management uses non-GAAP financial measures in making financial, operating, compensation and planning decisions. The Company believes non-GAAP financial measures facilitate management and investors comparison of the Company's financial performance to that of prior periods as well as trend analysis over time.

Non-GAAP adjusted income and non-GAAP adjusted income per fully diluted share utilizes a fixed annual projected non-GAAP tax rate in order to provide better consistency across the interim reporting periods by eliminating the effects of non-recurring and period-specific items which can vary in size and frequency. When projecting this annual rate, the Company evaluated a one-year financial projection that excludes the following non-cash items: stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangibles, and amortization of debt issuance costs. The projected annual rate also assumes no new option exercise, and considers other factors including the Company's tax structure, its tax positions in various jurisdictions where the Company operates. This expected annual rate is re-evaluated on an annual basis and for any significant events that may materially affect this rate. The expected non-GAAP tax rate for 2017 is 32.5%.

Share Repurchase Timing

The timing of share repurchases, if any, and the number of shares to be bought at any one time will depend on market conditions, the Company's compliance with the covenants in its Credit Agreement and the Company's assessment of the risk that its net operating loss asset could be impaired if such repurchases were undertaken. Share repurchases may be made from time to time on the open market or in negotiated transactions at the Company's discretion in compliance with Rule 10b-18 of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company's purchase of any of its shares may be subject to limitations imposed on such purchases by applicable securities laws and regulations and the rules of the Nasdaq Stock Market.
