First Quarter Fiscal 2019 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue: Total revenue was $30.2 million, up 10% year-over-year. Subscription and services revenue increased to $27.3 million and was 90% of total revenue, driven by 20% year-over-year growth in our business and residential subscription and services revenue.
  • Net Loss: GAAP net loss was $3.7 million, or $0.19 per basic and diluted share, compared to GAAP net loss of $3.4 million, or $0.19 per basic and diluted share, in the first quarter fiscal 2018. Non-GAAP net loss was $0.8 million, or $0.04 per basic and diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net loss of $0.3 million, or $0.02 per basic and diluted share, in the prior year period.
  • Adjusted EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA was ($0.5) million compared to $0.1 million in the prior year period.

For more information about non-GAAP net loss and Adjusted EBITDA, see the section below titled "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and the reconciliation provided in this release.

“We executed well in Q1 and once again achieved 20% year over year growth in core recurring revenue,” said Eric Stang, chief executive officer of Ooma.  “Our Q1 performance represents a solid start to our fiscal year 2019.  Looking ahead, we remain committed to our three key FY19 strategic initiatives, which are to continue the fast growth of Ooma Office for small businesses, capitalize on our Voxter acquisition to serve larger businesses with custom UCaaS solutions, and bring our home security solution to fruition including integration of the Butterfleye video security camera.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to disclosing financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this press release and the accompanying tables contain certain non-GAAP financial measures, including: non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss per share, non-GAAP gross profit and gross margin, non-GAAP operating loss, and Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA represents the net loss before interest and other expense or income, income tax benefit, depreciation and amortization and other non-GAAP expenses.

These non-GAAP financial measures exclude non-cash stock-based compensation expense and related taxes, acquisition related costs, amortization of intangibles and non-cash income tax benefit.

These non-GAAP financial measures are presented to provide investors with additional information regarding our financial results and core business operations.  Ooma considers these non-GAAP financial measures to be useful measures of the operating performance of the company, because they contain adjustments for unusual events or factors that do not directly affect what management considers to be Ooma's core operating performance and are used by the company's management for that purpose.  Management also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures allow for a better evaluation of the company's performance by facilitating a meaningful comparison of the company's core operating results in a given period to those in prior and future periods. In addition, investors often use similar measures to evaluate the operating performance of a company.

Non-GAAP financial measures are presented for supplemental informational purposes only to aid an understanding of the company's operating results. The non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures presented by other companies.  A limitation of the non-GAAP financial measures presented is that the adjustments relate to items that the company generally expects to continue to recognize. The adjustment of these items should not be construed as an inference that the adjusted gains or expenses are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring. Therefore, both GAAP financial measures of Ooma's financial performance and the respective non-GAAP measures should be considered together.  Please see the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure in the tables below.

Disclosure Information

Ooma uses the investor relations section on its website as a means of complying with its disclosure obligations under Regulation FD. Accordingly, investors should monitor Ooma's investor relations website in addition to following Ooma's press releases, SEC filings, and public conference calls and webcasts.
