Total revenue of $60.9 million up 19% year-over-year Cloud revenue of $22.9 million up 68% year-over-year Cloud ARR surpasses $100 million, up 66% year-over-year WALTHAM, Mass., Aug. 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Carbon Black, Inc. (NASDAQ: CBLK), a leader in cloud-native endpoint protection, today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019. “Carbon Black’s second quarter results demonstrated the company’s successful transition to a cloud first company powered by our leading, cloud-native endpoint protection platform (EPP), the Predictive Security Cloud® (PSC),” said Patrick Morley, President and Chief Executive Officer of Carbon Black. “We reached an important milestone in the quarter with cloud ARR exceeding $100 million, which reflects growing customer demand for a cloud EPP solution that can successfully protect against today’s increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks.” Morley continued, “Our cloud EPP, which includes highly differentiated products like CB ThreatHunter and CB LiveOps™, is extending the boundaries of the EPP market.  Customer reaction to our expanded product portfolio remains very positive and gives us confidence Carbon Black can drive strong cloud growth for the foreseeable future.” Second Quarter 2019 Financial Highlights Revenue: Total revenue was $60.9 million in the second quarter fiscal 2019, an increase of 19% year-over-year. Subscription, license and support revenue was $58.6 million, an increase of 22% year-over-year, and services revenue was $2.2 million, a decrease of 28% year-over-year.Gross Profit: Gross profit was $47.7 million in the second quarter fiscal 2019, representing a 78% gross margin, consistent with the year-ago period. Non-GAAP gross profit was $48.1 million, representing a 79% non-GAAP gross margin, consistent with the year-ago period.Loss from Operations: Loss from operations was $15.2 million in the second quarter fiscal 2019, compared to $19.2 million in the year-ago period. Non-GAAP loss from operations was $10.3 million in the second quarter fiscal 2019, compared to $15.3 million in the year-ago period.Net Loss: Net loss was $14.6 million in the second quarter fiscal 2019. Net loss attributable to common stockholders was $14.6 million, or $0.20 per share based on 72.4 million weighted-average shares outstanding, in the second quarter fiscal 2019. In the year-ago period, net loss was $25.3 million and net loss attributable to common stockholders was $184.7 million, or $4.13 per share based on 44.8 million weighted-average shares outstanding.  Non-GAAP net loss was $9.6 million, or $0.13 per share based on 72.4 million weighted-average shares outstanding. This compares to a non-GAAP net loss of $15.4 million, or $0.35 per share based on 44.8 million weighted-average shares outstanding, in the year-ago period.Cash and Cash Flow: As of June 30, 2019, Carbon Black had $148.1 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments. During the three months ended June 30, 2019, Carbon Black used ($13.8) million of cash in operations and ($1.4) million in capital expenditures and capitalized software development costs, leading to negative free cash flow of ($15.2) million, compared to negative free cash flow of ($17.3) million in the year-ago period. A reconciliation of each of non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP loss from operations, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss per share and free cash flow to the most directly comparable GAAP measure has been provided in the tables at the end of this press release. An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.” Second Quarter 2019 and Recent Business Highlights ARR, which we define as the annualized value of all active subscription contracts as of the end of a period, was $237.6 million at the end of the second quarter fiscal 2019, a 22% increase from the year-ago period.  The portion of ARR related to our cloud-based subscription contracts was $101.4 million, a 66% increase from the year-ago period.Continued to grow our customer base, ending the quarter with 5,680 total customers, up 32% from the year-ago period, and 3,496 cloud customers, up 62% from the year-ago period. Growth was driven by demand for the CB Predictive Security Cloud and customer acquisition across a broad range of industries and geographies.Announced the release of a third-generation cloud architecture, including plans for ‘Bring Your Own Key (BYOK)’ encryption capabilities.Added Amazon Web Services (AWS) and container protection to the company’s cloud EPP.Hosted our sold-out, annual user conference, CB Connect, in San Diego, attended by more than 600 customers, prospects and partners. Released a Global Incident Response Threat Report, collaborating with more than 40 leading incident response (IR) firms and detailing the latest attack trends seen during investigations.Released a threat report detailing recent cyberattacks targeting the healthcare industry, “Healthcare Cyber Heists in 2019.” Business Outlook Based on information as of today, August 1, 2019, Carbon Black is issuing the following financial guidance for the third quarter and full year fiscal 2019:  Third Quarter Fiscal 2019Full Year Fiscal 2019Total Revenue$ 61.3 million to $62.3 million$ 243.0 million to $ 245.0 millionNon-GAAP Loss from Operations($9.3) million to ($8.3) million($45.0) million to ($43.0) millionNon-GAAP Net Loss per Share($0.12) to ($0.10)($0.61) to ($0.58) Carbon Black’s forward-looking non-GAAP loss from operations and non-GAAP net loss per share exclude estimates for stock-based compensation expense and amortization of acquired intangibles. Reconciliation of non-GAAP loss from operations and non-GAAP net loss per share guidance to the most directly comparable GAAP measures is not available without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to the high variability, complexity and low visibility with respect to the charges excluded from these non-GAAP measures, particularly with respect to stock-based compensation expense. Stock-based compensation expense is directly impacted by unpredictable fluctuations in our stock price and by future hiring, turnover and retention needs, all of which are difficult to predict and subject to change. We expect the variability of the above charges to have a significant, and potentially unpredictable, impact on our future GAAP loss from operations and GAAP net loss per share.

These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, plans, objectives, expectations and intentions and other statements contained in this press release that are not historical facts and statements identified by words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “plan,” “project,” “will,” “would” or the negative or plural of these words or similar expressions or variations. These forward-looking statements reflect our current views about our plans, intentions, expectations, strategies and prospects, which are based on the information currently available to us and on assumptions we have made. Although we believe that our plans, intentions, expectations, strategies and prospects as reflected in or suggested by those forward-looking statements are reasonable, we can give no assurance that the plans, intentions, expectations or strategies will be attained or achieved. Furthermore, actual results may differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements and are subject to a variety of assumptions, uncertainties, risks and factors that are beyond our control including, without limitation: our history of losses; failure (or the perceived failure) of our products to detect cyber attacks; our investments in new products and our ability to introduce new features, services or enhancements; the intense competition that we face in our market; our ability to effectively expand our sales and marketing organization; our ability to add new customers or increase sales to our existing customers; our ability to maintain, protect, enforce and enhance our intellectual property; the growth in the market for next-generation endpoint security solutions and adjacent security markets and our ability to penetrate those markets; our ability to manage our growth effectively and successfully recruit additional highly-qualified personnel; the price volatility of our common stock; and other risks detailed under the caption “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on March 8, 2019, as updated by our subsequently filed quarterly reports on Form 10-Q  and our other SEC filings. Except as required by law, we undertake no duty or obligation to update any forward-looking statements contained in this release as a result of new information, future events, changes in expectations or otherwise. Non-GAAP Financial Measures This press release includes the following financial measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the SEC: non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP loss from operations, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss per share and free cash flow. Non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP loss from operations and non-GAAP net loss exclude stock-based compensation expense, amortization of acquired intangibles, legal settlement amount, and, in the case of non-GAAP net loss, change in fair value of warrant liability and accretion of preferred stock to redemption value. Non-GAAP net loss per share is calculated by dividing non-GAAP net loss by the weighted-average shares used to compute net loss per share attributable to common stockholders, basic and diluted. Carbon Black uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing its financial results and believes they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating Carbon Black’s ongoing operational performance. Carbon Black believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing its financial results with other companies in Carbon Black’s industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. Free cash flow represents net cash used in operating activities less capital expenditures and capitalized software development costs, if any. Carbon Black uses free cash flow to understand and evaluate its liquidity and to generate future operating plans. The exclusion of capital expenditures and amounts capitalized for software development facilitates comparisons of Carbon Black’s liquidity on a period-to-period basis and excludes items that it does not consider to be indicative of its liquidity. Carbon Black believes that free cash flow is a measure of liquidity that provides useful information to investors in understanding and evaluating the strength of its liquidity and future ability to generate cash that can be used for strategic opportunities or investing in its business. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. In particular, other companies may report non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP loss from operations, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss per share, free cash flow or similarly titled measures but calculate them differently, which reduces their usefulness as comparative measures. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, as presented below.
