Limelight Networks(R) Reports Financial Results for the Second Quarter of 2019

Company Release - 7/17/2019 4:01 PM ET
Q2 Revenue of $45.9 million
Q2 GAAP basic EPS of $(0.06) and Non-GAAP EPS of $(0.03)
Cash and marketable securities of $29.0 million
TEMPE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Limelight Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:LLNW, news, filings) (Limelight), a leading provider of edge cloud services, today reported revenue of $45.9 million for the second quarter of 2019, down 9% compared to $50.2 million in the second quarter of 2018. Currency negatively impacted year-over-year comparison by $0.3 million.

Limelight reported a net loss of $7.2 million, or $0.06 per basic share for the second quarter of 2019, compared to net income of $15.2 million, or $0.14 per basic share and $0.13 per fully diluted share, in the second quarter of 2018. Net income in the second quarter of 2018 included $14.9 million of non-operating income ($0.13 per basic share and $0.12 per fully diluted share) related to a settlement and patent license agreement.

Non-GAAP net loss was $3.5 million, or $0.03 per basic share, for the second quarter of 2019, compared to Non-GAAP net income of $4.0 million, or $0.04 per basic share, in the second quarter of 2018.

EBITDA was negative $2.2 million for the second quarter of 2019, compared to $20.3 million for the second quarter of 2018, which included the positive impact of $14.9 million of non-operating income related to the settlement and patent license agreement. Adjusted EBITDA was $1.4 million for the second quarter of 2019, compared to $9.2 million for the second quarter of 2018.

Limelight ended the second quarter with 594 employees and employee equivalents, up from 562 at the end of the first quarter of 2019, and up from 549 at the end of the second quarter of 2018.

“Second quarter results were in line with analyst expectations,” said Bob Lento, Chief Executive Officer. “Building upon our sequential top-line growth, we continue to anticipate year-over-year growth accelerating in the back half of the year and into 2020. We believe that the fourth quarter, in particular, will set us up for industry leading growth in revenue in 2020. During the first half of the year, we have achieved significant increases in capacity through software enhancements and investments in our infrastructure which leaves us well positioned to take advantage of the massive growth in demand for digital video services that most industry analysts are predicting for the near future.”

We are updating guidance to reflect the impact of timing issues on completion of certain major customer and partner-driven initiatives in 2019. Based on current conditions, we expect 2019 revenue to be between $200 and $210 million dollars. GAAP net loss is expected to be approximately $0.10 per share and Non-GAAP earnings per share should be near breakeven. Capital expenditures should be approximately $25 million dollars.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To evaluate our business, we consider and use non-generally accepted accounting principles (Non-GAAP) net income (loss), EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as supplemental measures of operating performance. These measures include the same adjustments that management takes into account when it reviews and assesses operating performance on a period-to-period basis. We consider Non-GAAP net income (loss) to be an important indicator of overall business performance. We define Non-GAAP net income (loss) to be U.S. GAAP net income (loss) adjusted to exclude the settlement and patent license income, share-based compensation and litigation expenses. We believe that EBITDA provides a useful metric to investors to compare us with other companies within our industry and across industries. We define EBITDA as U.S. GAAP net income (loss) adjusted to exclude depreciation and amortization, interest expense, interest and other (income) expense, and income tax expense. We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA adjusted to exclude the settlement and patent license income, share-based compensation and litigation expenses. We use Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure to review and assess operating performance. Our management uses these Non-GAAP financial measures because, collectively, they provide valuable information on the performance of our on-going operations, excluding non-cash charges, taxes and non-core activities (including interest payments related to financing activities). These measures also enable our management to compare the results of our on-going operations from period to period, and allow management to review the performance of our on-going operations against our peer companies and against other companies in our industry and adjacent industries. We believe these measures also provide similar insights to investors, and enable investors to review our results of operations “through the eyes of management.”

Furthermore, our management uses these Non-GAAP financial measures to assist them in making decisions regarding our strategic priorities and areas for future investment and focus.

The terms Non-GAAP net income (loss), EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not defined under U.S. GAAP, and are not measures of operating income, operating performance or liquidity presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Our Non-GAAP net income (loss), EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as analytical tools, and when assessing our operating performance, Non-GAAP net income (loss), EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for net income (loss) or other consolidated income statement data prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Some of these limitations include, but are not limited to:

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect our cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
these measures do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
Non-GAAP net income (loss) and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the cash requirements necessary for litigation costs, including provision for litigation and litigation expenses;
these measures do not reflect the interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on our debt that we may incur;
these measures do not reflect income taxes or the cash requirements for any tax payments;
although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will be replaced sometime in the future, and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements;
while share-based compensation is a component of operating expense, the impact on our financial statements compared to other companies can vary significantly due to such factors as the assumed life of the options and the assumed volatility of our common stock; and
other companies may calculate Non-GAAP net income (loss), EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.
We compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our U.S. GAAP results and using Non-GAAP net income (loss), EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA only as supplemental support for management's analysis of business performance. Non-GAAP net income (loss), EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are calculated as follows for the periods presented in thousands:
