Coupa Software Reports Financial Results for the Third Quarter of Fiscal 2019
Record Quarterly Revenues of $67.5 Million, Up 42% Year-Over-Year
Cumulative Spend Under Management Surpasses $940 Billion

SAN MATEO, Calif., Dec. 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Coupa Software (NASDAQ: COUP) today announced financial results for its third fiscal quarter ended October 31, 2018.

"We continue to extend our market leadership position, reporting 40% revenue growth and 39% calculated billings growth for the trailing 12 months, along with non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of 8 cents for the quarter.  Cumulative spend under management through our platform surpassed $940 billion, with $1 trillion clearly in our sights," said Rob Bernshteyn, chief executive officer at Coupa. "The foundation for our strong financial results continues to be our ability to deliver repeatable and measurable value for our customers worldwide across all areas of business spend management. We believe we are uniquely positioned to win this large market."

Business Outlook:

The following forward-looking statements reflect Coupa's expectations as of December 3, 2018. Guidance is based on the new revenue recognition standard, ASC 606, which Coupa adopted on February 1, 2018.

  • Professional services and other revenues are expected to be approximately $5.8 million.
  • Non-GAAP income from operations is expected to be approximately break-even.
  • Non-GAAP net income per share is expected to be approximately break-even.
  • Basic and fully diluted weighted average share counts are expected to be approximately 59.8 and 68.0 million shares, respectively.

Full year fiscal 2019:

See the section titled "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and the reconciliation tables below for important details regarding Coupa's non-GAAP measures. Coupa defines (i) free cash flows as operating cash flows less purchases of property and equipment and (ii) calculated billings as the change in deferred revenue on the balance sheet for the period, plus revenue recognized during the period.

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 that exclude share-based compensation expenses, amortization of acquired intangible assets, amortization of debt discount and issuance costs from convertible notes, and related tax effects including non-recurring income tax adjustments. Coupa believes these non-GAAP measures are useful in evaluating its operating performance and regularly reviews these measures as it evaluates its business.

Coupa believes these non-GAAP measures provide investors and other users of its financial information consistency and comparability with its past financial performance and facilitate period to period comparisons of operations. Coupa believes these non-GAAP measures are useful in evaluating its operating performance compared to that of other companies in its industry, as they generally eliminate the effects of certain items that may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to overall operating performance.

Coupa uses these non-GAAP measures in conjunction with GAAP measures as part of its overall assessment of its performance, including the preparation of its annual operating budget and quarterly forecasts, to evaluate the effectiveness of its business strategies and to communicate with its board of directors concerning its financial performance. The definitions of its non-GAAP measures may differ from the definitions used by other companies and therefore comparability may be limited. In addition, other companies may not publish these or similar metrics. Thus, Coupa's non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, not as substitutes for, or in isolation from, measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Coupa compensates for these limitations by providing investors and other users of its financial information a reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to the related GAAP financial measures. Coupa encourages investors and others to review its financial information in its entirety, not to rely on any single financial measure and to view its non-GAAP measures in conjunction with GAAP financial measures.  Please see the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures attached to this release.

With respect to Coupa's guidance as provided under "Business Outlook" above, Coupa has not reconciled its expectations for non-GAAP income (loss) from operations to GAAP loss from operations or non-GAAP net income (loss) per share to GAAP net loss per share because certain items excluded from non-GAAP operating income (loss) and net income (loss), such as charges related to share-based compensation expenses, amortization of acquired intangible assets, amortization of debt discount and issuance costs from our convertible notes, and related tax effects including non-recurring income tax adjustments, cannot be reasonably calculated or predicted at this time. The effect of these excluded items may be significant.

Coupa also uses key metrics such as cumulative spend under management, which represents the aggregate amount of money that has been transacted through its core platform for all of its customers collectively since it launched its platform. Coupa calculates this metric by aggregating the actual transaction data, such as invoices, purchase orders and expenses, from customers on its core platform. While Coupa does not believe this metric is directly correlated to its financial results, it believes that the adoption of its core platform, as evidenced by growth in cumulative spend under management, drives additional value to its customers, which will enhance its ability to acquire new customers and to increase renewals and upsells to existing customers.

Forward-Looking Statements:

This release includes forward-looking statements. All statements other than statements of historical facts, including the statements of management and statements in "Business Outlook" are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based on Coupa's current expectations and projections about future events and trends that Coupa believes may affect its financial condition, results of operations, strategy, short- and long-term business operations and objectives, and financial needs.

These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties and assumptions that may cause actual results to differ materially, including: Coupa has a limited operating history, which makes it difficult to predict its future operating results; if Coupa is unable to attract new customers, the growth of its revenues will be adversely affected; because its platform is sold to large enterprises with complex operating environments, Coupa encounters long and unpredictable sales cycles; risks and liabilities related to breach of its security measures or unauthorized access to customer data; the markets in which Coupa participates are intensely competitive; Coupa's business depends substantially on its customers renewing their subscriptions and purchasing additional subscriptions; if Coupa fails to develop widespread brand awareness cost-effectively, its business may suffer; and if Coupa fails to manage its recent rapid growth effectively, Coupa may be unable to execute its business plan, maintain high levels of service, or adequately address competitive challenges.

These and other risks and uncertainties that could affect Coupa's future results are included under the captions "Risk Factors" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations," in Coupa's quarterly report on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on September 6, 2018, which is available at investors.coupa.com and on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov. Further information on potential risks that could affect actual results will be included in other periodic filings Coupa makes with the SEC.

The forward-looking statements in this release reflect Coupa's expectations as of December 3, 2018. Coupa undertakes no obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statements for any reason after the date of this release to conform these statements to actual results or to changes in its expectations.
