Third Quarter Highlights
LEXINGTON, Mass., Feb. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (NASDAQ: MIME), a leading email and data security company, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended December 31, 2018.
“The strong execution from our global go to market, product and customer service teams resulted in another strong quarter of new customer acquisitions, increased adoption of our expanded offerings and record customer retention. Customers appreciate our ability to protect their businesses and continue to value the depth of capabilities available on our platform,” stated Peter Bauer, CEO of Mimecast. Mimecast’s CFO Peter Campbell noted, “I am proud of our ability to continue to grow our top line while showing both GAAP and non-GAAP net income. Our third quarter results are showing the future potential of our model to generate free cash flow as we scale our operations.”
Reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures provided in this press release to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are provided in the financial tables included at the end of this press release. An explanation of these measures and how they are calculated is also included under the heading “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”
Mimecast is providing guidance for the fourth quarter, fiscal year 2019 and fiscal year 2020.
GAAP net income (loss) is the most comparable GAAP measure to Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA differs from GAAP net income (loss) in that it excludes depreciation, amortization, disposals and impairment of long-lived assets, acquisition-related gains and expenses, share-based compensation expense, restructuring expense, interest income and interest expense, the provision for income taxes and foreign exchange income (expense). Adjusted EBITDA also includes rent paid in the period related to locations which are accounted for as build-to-suit facilities. Mimecast is unable to predict with reasonable certainty the ultimate outcome of these exclusions without unreasonable effort. Therefore, Mimecast has not provided guidance for GAAP net income (loss) or a reconciliation of forward-looking Adjusted EBITDA guidance to GAAP net income (loss).
Mimecast will host a conference call to discuss these financial results for investors and analysts at 4:30 pm EST (UTC-05:00) on February 11, 2019. To access the conference call, dial (844) 402-0879 for the U.S. and Canada and (478) 219-0767 for international callers and enter conference ID# 2156038.
