CARROLLTON, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- RealPage, Inc. (NASDAQ:RP), a leading provider of on demand software and software-enabled services for the multifamily, commercial, single-family and vacation rental housing industries, today announced financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2016.

First Quarter 2016 Financial Highlights

  • Total GAAP revenue of $128.4 million, an increase of 16 percent year-over-year;
  • GAAP net income of $3.0 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, compared to a GAAP net loss of $1.6 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, in the prior year quarter;
  • Total Non-GAAP revenue of $128.0 million, an increase of 16 percent year-over-year;
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $27.5 million, an increase of 37 percent year-over-year and 320 basis points of margin expansion; and
  • Non-GAAP net income of $12.7 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, a year-over-year increase of 44 percent and 55 percent, respectively.

Comments on the News

“First quarter results represent a solid start to 2016,” said Steve Winn, Chairman and CEO of RealPage. “Total non-GAAP revenue growth of 16% was driven by strong client adoption across our Property Management, Resident Services and Asset Optimization product families. Our acquisition of NWP Services Corporation, which was included in our results for approximately one month during the first quarter, contributed $4.7 million to total non-GAAP revenue. We are excited to have NWP as a part of the RealPage family.”

“We increased our adjusted EBITDA margin by 320 basis points, which contributed to another quarter of strong operating cash flow, up 29% compared to the prior year period,” said Bryan Hill, CFO and Treasurer of RealPage. “We expect to drive further operating leverage and strong cash flow growth throughout 2016, and as a result we are raising our full year adjusted EBITDA expectations.”

The company also announced that its board of directors has authorized the company to purchase up to $50 million of its outstanding shares of common stock over the next 12 months. “The Board's decision to continue our stock repurchase program reflects continued support of our capital allocation strategy which provides us a flexible framework to deploy capital in opportunistic areas,” said Mr. Winn.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains “forward-looking” statements relating to RealPage, Inc.’s expected, possible or assumed future results; its expectations regarding operating leverage and cash flow growth. Forward-looking statements are based on management's beliefs and assumptions and on information currently available to management. Forward-looking statements include all statements that are not historical facts and may be identified by terms such as “expects,” “believes,” “plans,” or similar expressions and the negatives of those terms. Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. The company may be required to revise its results upon finalizing its review of quarterly and full year results, which could cause or contribute to such differences. Additional factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to, the following: (a) the possibility that general economic conditions, including leasing velocity or uncertainty, could cause information technology spending, particularly in the rental housing industry, to be reduced or purchasing decisions to be delayed; (b) an increase in insurance claims; (c) an increase in customer cancellations; (d) the inability to increase sales to existing customers and to attract new customers; (e) RealPage, Inc.’s failure to integrate acquired businesses and any future acquisitions successfully or to achieve expected synergies; (f) the timing and success of new product introductions by RealPage, Inc. or its competitors; (g) changes in RealPage, Inc.’s pricing policies or those of its competitors; (h) legal or regulatory proceedings; (i) the inability to achieve revenue growth or to enable margin expansion; and (j) such other risks and uncertainties described more fully in documents filed with or furnished to the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) by RealPage, Inc., including its Annual Report on Form 10-K previously filed with the SEC on February 29, 2016. All information provided in this release is as of the date hereof and RealPage Inc. undertakes no duty to update this information except as required by law.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures. These measures differ from traditional GAAP financial measures in that they (1) include acquisition-related and other deferred revenue adjustments; (2) exclude depreciation, loss on impairment and disposal of assets; amortization of intangible assets; stock-based compensation expenses; non-recurring and duplicative expenses related to the relocation of our headquarters; any impact related to certain litigation such as our prior litigation with Yardi Systems, Inc. (including related insurance litigation and settlement costs); and acquisition related expenses (including any purchase accounting adjustments); and (3) include income taxes at a sustainable effective rate, which may differ from our current rate.

We define non-GAAP total revenue as total revenue plus acquisition-related and other deferred revenue adjustments. We also define non-GAAP on demand revenue as on demand revenue plus acquisition-related and other deferred revenue adjustments. Non-GAAP net income is defined as net income (loss) plus acquisition-related and other deferred revenue adjustments; amortization of intangible assets; stock-based compensation expense; non-recurring and duplicative expenses related to the relocation of our headquarters; acquisition-related expenses (including any purchase accounting adjustments); any impact related to certain litigation such as our prior litigation with Yardi Systems, Inc. (including related insurance litigation and settlement costs); and an adjustment to income tax expense (benefit) to reflect our projected sustainable effective tax rate. Other non-GAAP measures such as non-GAAP product development, non-GAAP sales and marketing, non-GAAP general and administrative, and non-GAAP operating expense and income exclude amortization of intangible assets; litigation-related expense; loss on disposal and impairment of assets; non-recurring and duplicative expenses related to the relocation of our headquarters; and stock-based compensation when calculating their composition. In addition to these adjustments, non-GAAP operating income is adjusted for acquisition-related and other deferred revenue.

Adjusted gross profit is defined as gross profit plus acquisition-related and other deferred revenue adjustments, depreciation and amortization of intangible assets, non-recurring and duplicative expenses related to the relocation of our headquarters, and stock-based compensation.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) plus acquisition-related and other deferred revenue adjustments; depreciation, asset impairment and loss on disposal of assets; amortization of intangible assets; net interest expense; income tax expense (benefit); stock-based compensation expense; non-recurring and duplicative expenses related to the relocation of our headquarters; any impact related to certain litigation such as our prior litigation with Yardi Systems, Inc. (including related insurance litigation and settlement costs); and acquisition related expenses (including any purchase accounting adjustments).

Non-GAAP on demand revenue per average on demand unit represents non-GAAP on demand revenue for the period presented, including pro forma on demand revenue for acquisitions acquired during the period, divided by average on demand units for the same period. For interim periods, the calculation is performed on an annualized basis. We calculate average on demand units as the average of the beginning and ending on demand units for each quarter in the period presented. We monitor this metric to measure our success in increasing the number of on demand software solutions utilized by our customers to manage rental housing units.

Non-GAAP on demand annual customer value, or “ACV”, represents management's estimate of the current annual run-rate value of on demand customer relationships. ACV is calculated by multiplying ending on demand units by annualized Non-GAAP on demand revenue per average on demand unit for the periods presented.

We believe that the non-GAAP financial measures defined above are useful to investors and other users of our financial statements in evaluating our operating performance because they provide additional tools to compare business performance across companies and across periods. We believe that:

  • these non-GAAP financial measures provide investors and other users of our financial information consistency and comparability with our past financial performance, facilitate period-to-period comparisons of operations and facilitate comparisons with our peer companies, many of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results;
  • it is useful to exclude certain non-cash charges, such as depreciation and asset impairment, amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation, non-recurring and duplicative expenses related to the relocation of our headquarters, any impact related to certain litigation such as our prior litigation with Yardi Systems, Inc. (including related insurance litigation and settlement costs), and acquisition related expenses (including any purchase accounting adjustments), from non-GAAP earnings measures, such as Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income, because the amount of such expenses in any specific period may not directly correlate to the underlying performance of our business operations and these expenses can vary significantly between periods as a result of new acquisitions, full amortization of previously acquired tangible and intangible assets or the timing of new stock-based awards, as the case may be; and
  • it is useful to include deferred revenue written down for GAAP purposes under purchase accounting rules and revenue deferred due to a lack of historical experience determining the settlement of the contractual obligation in order to appropriately measure the underlying performance of our business operations in the period of activity and associated expense.

We use the non-GAAP financial measures defined above in conjunction with traditional GAAP financial measures as part of our overall assessment of our performance; for planning purposes, including the preparation of our annual operating budget; to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies; and to communicate with our board of directors concerning our financial performance.

We do not place undue reliance on non-GAAP financial measures as our only measures of operating performance. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered substitutes for other measures of financial performance or liquidity reported in accordance with GAAP. There are limitations to using non-GAAP financial measures, including that other companies may calculate these measures differently than we do, that they do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital, and that they do not reflect our capital expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures. We compensate for the inherent limitations associated with using non-GAAP financial measures through disclosure of these limitations, presentation of our financial statements in accordance with GAAP, and reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure.
