Financial Outlook:

Zuora adopted the new revenue recognition standard, ASC 606, effective February 1, 2019 on a full retrospective basis. The tables below reflect our guidance under ASC 606 and, for comparison purposes, the impact of our adoption of ASC 606 and what guidance would have been under ASC 605. For more information regarding Zuora’s adoption of ASC 606, refer to the “Adoption of ASC 606” section below. For future earnings press releases, we expect to present guidance under ASC 606 only.

For the first quarter of fiscal 2020, Zuora expects:

           
Under ASC 605 ASC 606 Impact Guidance (ASC 606)
Subscription revenue

$47.5M - $48.0M

$(1.5M)

$46.0M - $46.5M

Total revenue

$65.0M - $66.0M

$(1.5M)

$63.5M - $64.5M

Non-GAAP loss from operations $(14.5M) - $(13.5M) $(0.5M) $(15.0M) - $(14.0M)

Non-GAAP net loss per share(1)

$(0.13) - $(0.12) $(0.01) $(0.14) - $(0.13)
 

For the full year fiscal 2020, Zuora expects:

           
Under ASC 605 ASC 606 Impact Guidance (ASC 606)
Subscription revenue $214.0M - $216.5M $(5.0M) $209.0M - $211.5M
Total revenue $293.0M - $297.5M $(4.0M) $289.0M - $293.5M
Non-GAAP loss from operations $(49.0M) - $(45.0M) $— $(49.0M) - $(45.0M)
Non-GAAP net loss per share(1) $(0.44) - $(0.40) $— $(0.44) - $(0.40)
 

(1) Non-GAAP net loss per share attributable to common stockholders was computed assuming 108.5 million weighted average shares outstanding for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 and 110.1 million for the full year fiscal 2020.

These statements are forward-looking and actual results may differ materially. Refer to the “Forward-Looking Statements” safe harbor section below for information on the factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from these forward-looking statements.

Zuora has not reconciled its guidance for non-GAAP loss from operations to GAAP loss from operations or non-GAAP net loss per share attributable to common stockholders to GAAP net loss per share because stock-based compensation expense cannot be reasonably calculated or predicted at this time. Accordingly, a reconciliation is not available without unreasonable effort.

Webcast and Conference Call Information:

Zuora will host a conference call for investors on March 21, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time to discuss the company’s financial results and business highlights. Investors are invited to listen to a live webcast of the conference call by visiting https://investor.zuora.com. A replay of the webcast will be available for one year. The call can also be accessed live via phone by dialing (866) 393-4306 or, for international callers, (734) 385-2616 with conference ID 5283016. An audio replay will be available shortly after the call and can be accessed by dialing (855) 859-2056 or, for international callers, (404) 537-3406. The passcode for the replay is 5283016. The replay will be available through March 28, 2019.

Adoption of ASC 606:

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued a new standard related to revenue recognition from contracts with customers ("ASC 606"), which is effective for Zuora beginning February 1, 2019. ASC 606 supersedes the prior revenue recognition standard ("ASC 605"). Except for the forward-looking guidance provided in the "Financial Outlook" section above reported based on ASC 606, all other financial information in this release is reported based on ASC 605.

Under ASC 606, revenue recognition will be better aligned with the value delivered by our service over time. Due to the complexity of certain customer contracts, however, the actual revenue recognition treatment required under ASC 606 will depend on contract specific terms and may result in greater variability in revenue from period to period.

Under ASC 606, we will defer all incremental commission costs to obtain customer contracts, including indirect costs that are not tied to a specific contract. These costs will be amortized over a period of benefit that we have determined to be five years.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

In addition to financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this press release and the accompanying tables contain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP cost of subscription revenue, non-GAAP cost of professional services revenue, non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP subscription gross margin, non-GAAP total gross margin, non-GAAP sales and marketing expense, non-GAAP research and development expense, non-GAAP general and administrative expense, non-GAAP loss from operations, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss per share attributable to common stockholders, and free cash flow. The presentation of these financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

We use these non-GAAP measures in conjunction with GAAP measures as part of our overall assessment of our performance, including the preparation of our annual operating budget and quarterly forecasts, to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies and to communicate with our board of directors concerning our financial performance. We believe these non-GAAP measures provide investors consistency and comparability with our past financial performance and facilitate period-to-period comparisons of our operating results. We believe these non-GAAP measures are useful in evaluating our operating performance compared to that of other companies in our industry, as they generally eliminate the effects of certain items that may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to overall operating performance.

We exclude the following items from one or more of our non-GAAP financial measures:

Stock-based compensation expense. We exclude stock-based compensation expense, which is a non-cash expense, from certain of our non-GAAP financial measures because we believe that excluding this item provides meaningful supplemental information regarding operational performance. In particular, stock-based compensation expense is not comparable across companies given it is calculated using a variety of valuation methodologies and subjective assumptions.

Amortization of acquired intangible assets. We exclude amortization of acquired intangible assets, which is a non-cash expense, from certain of our non-GAAP financial measures. We exclude these amortization expenses because we do not believe these expenses have a direct correlation to the operation of our business.

Internal-use software. We exclude capitalization and the subsequent amortization of internal-use software, which is a non-cash expense, from certain of our non-GAAP financial measures. We capitalize certain costs incurred for the development of computer software for internal use and then amortize those costs over the estimated useful life. Capitalization and amortization of software development costs can vary significantly depending on the timing of products reaching technological feasibility and being made generally available. Moreover, because of the variety of approaches taken and the subjective assumptions made by other companies in this area, we believe that excluding the effects of capitalized software costs allows investors to make more meaningful comparisons between our operating results and those of other companies.

Charitable donations. We exclude expenses associated with the charitable donation of our common stock from certain of our non-GAAP financial measures. We believe that excluding this non-recurring and non-cash expense allows investors to make more meaningful comparisons between our operating results and those of other companies.

Additionally, Zuora’s management believes that the free cash flow non-GAAP measure is meaningful to investors because management reviews cash flows generated from operations after taking into consideration capital expenditures as these expenditures are considered to be a necessary component of ongoing operations.

Investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as an analytical tool. The non-GAAP measures we use may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies, limiting their usefulness for comparison purposes. We compensate for these limitations by providing specific information regarding the GAAP items excluded from these non-GAAP financial measures.

Operating Metrics:

Annual Contract Value (ACV). We define ACV as the subscription revenue we would contractually expect to recognize from a customer over the next twelve months, assuming no increases or reductions in their subscriptions.

Dollar-based Retention Rate. We calculate our dollar-based retention rate as of a period end by starting with the sum of the ACV from all customers as of twelve months prior to such period end, or prior period ACV. We then calculate the sum of the ACV from these same customers as of the current period end, or current period ACV. Current period ACV includes any upsells and also reflects contraction or attrition over the trailing twelve months but excludes revenue from new customers added in the current period. We then divide the current period ACV by the prior period ACV to arrive at our dollar-based retention rate.

Forward-Looking Statements:

This press release contains “forward-looking statements” that involve a number of risks and uncertainties, including but not limited to, statements regarding our GAAP and non-GAAP guidance for the first fiscal quarter and full fiscal 2020 and financial outlook and market positioning.

Forward-looking statements are based on management's expectations as of the date of this filing and are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties and assumptions, many of which involve factors or circumstances that are beyond our control.

In particular, the following factors, among others, could cause results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements: we have a history of net losses and may not achieve or sustain profitability; the shift by companies to subscription business models may develop slower than we expect; we may not able to sustain or manage any future growth effectively; our security measures may be breached or our products may be perceived as not being secure; our products may fail to gain, or lose, market acceptance; we may be unable to attract new customers and expand sales to existing customers; customers may fail to deploy our solution after entering into a subscription agreement with us; customers may incorrectly or improperly deploy or use of our solution; we may not be able to develop and release new products and services; we may experience interruptions or performance problems, including a service outage, associated with our technology; we face intense competition in our markets and may not be able to compete effectively; weakened global economic conditions may adversely affect our industry; the risk of loss of key employees; changes in foreign exchange rates; general political or destabilizing events, including war, conflict or acts of terrorism; and other risks and uncertainties. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. The forward-looking statements included in this press release represent our views as of the date of this press release.

Note regarding correction to earnings press release dated November 29, 2018*:

We identified an error in our earnings press release dated November 29, 2018 (“November Release”). The November Release incorrectly reported internal-use software expense of $(1,929) under general and administrative in the reconciliation table of GAAP to non-GAAP measures for the nine months ended October 31, 2018, when that amount should have been zero. As a result, for the nine months ended October 31, 2018, our non-GAAP general and administrative expense, operating loss, net loss and net loss per share attributable to common stockholders, basic and diluted, should have been presented as $24,940, $(36,589), $(38,423) and $(0.45), respectively, in such reconciliation table. The error did not impact any other results presented in the November Release, and the corrected release has been posted on the investor relations page of our website under “Financial News” and “Events and Presentations”.

* Numbers described in the note are in thousands, except per share amounts.
