BRIDGEWATER, N.J., March 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Synchronoss Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: SNCR), a global leader and innovator in cloud, messaging, digital and IoT platforms and products, today announced financial results for fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2018.

Fourth quarter highlights include:

  • Revenue was $82.1 million, including 83 percent recurring revenue.
  • GAAP net loss for the quarter was $101.9 million, or $2.56 per share, which included $109.1 million of pretax non-cash asset impairments.
  • Synchronoss delivered $15.4 million of adjusted EBITDA, up 64.9 percent from $9.4 million in the third quarter. Adjusted EBITDA margin in the fourth quarter reached 18.8 percent, up 67.3 percent from 11.2 percent in the third quarter.
  • Cash flow provided by operations during the quarter was $29.3 million.

Glenn Lurie, president and chief executive officer, stated, “Our fourth quarter financial results show that Synchronoss continues to meet its financial and operational commitments to shareholders. We delivered positive adjusted EBITDA for the second straight quarter and the third straight quarter of improvement, adjusted EBITDA margins reached their highest level of the year, and we delivered nearly $30 million of cash flow from operations. In addition, thus far in early 2019 we are winning a growing number of new customers while expanding engagements with existing customers.  Our success is being driven by the significant value our platforms deliver in solving some of the most complex challenges facing the Telecommunications Media and Technology (TMT) industry, including the risk of disintermediation from Over-The-Top (OTT) applications, managing the increasing complexity to deliver a true digital consumer experiences and journeys that end-users expect while reducing costs and driving incremental revenue.”

Today, Synchronoss is announcing a new Cloud agreement with Assurant, Inc. which will white-label our Synchronoss cloud platform for its Pocket Geek solution which is offered in their device protection bundles.

This announcement builds on several important customer agreements and partnerships that the company won earlier in the quarter, including:

  • A deal and partnership with Rackspace, which will utilize the DXP platform to enhance its internal operational efficiencies and journeys, as well as resell the entire Synchronoss DXP platform and product suite to its global customer portfolio.
  • The renewal of its agreement to power the BT Cloud. BT has been a Synchronoss cloud services and storage partner since 2015, and the contract renewal signifies a deepening relationship between Synchronoss and BT.
  • The continued expansion and development of our advanced messaging initiative with the 3 major Japanese mobile operators.

 Full year financial highlights include:

  • Synchronoss delivered $325.8 million of revenue for the year. In addition, Synchronoss successfully migrated to over 79 percent recurring revenue in 2018, from 75 percent in 2017.
  • GAAP net loss for the year was $243.7 million, or $6.05 per share, which included $127.3 million of pretax non-cash asset impairments.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the full year was $14.0 million.
  • Synchronoss generated $24.8 million of adjusted EBITDA in the second half of the year, after adjusting for $4.9 million of first quarter expenses that were recognized in the third quarter.
  • Synchronoss achieved $20 million of annualized cost savings in 2018 with another $25 million annualized run rate expected to be realized in 2019.
  • Synchronoss retired over 50% of its convertible debt and paid its third and fourth-quarter quarter dividend on its convertible preferred stock in cash instead of additional shares.

David Clark, chief financial officer, added, “During 2018, we stabilized and reset our core business, aligned the entire team towards our key priorities and core values, and evolved our platforms and product roadmaps to meet customer needs. As a result of those actions, we made a great deal of progress to improve operating leverage and profitability, drive free cash flow, and reduce debt. We believe there is additional cost savings opportunity, and going forward, we will continue to focus on delivering profitable revenue growth and cost efficiencies. Finally, demonstrating our confidence in our cash-generating abilities, in early 2019 we again paid the quarterly dividend on our preferred stock in cash instead of shares, and we repurchased an additional $11.5 million of our convertible debt.”

A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results has been provided in the financial statement tables included in this press release. An explanation of these measures is included below under the heading "Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Synchronoss has provided in this release selected financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with GAAP. This information includes historical non-GAAP revenues, gross profit, operating income (loss), net income (loss), effective tax rate, earnings (loss) per share and cash flows from operating activities. Synchronoss 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 Synchronoss’ ongoing operational performance. Synchronoss 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 Synchronoss’ industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. As noted, the non-GAAP financial results discussed above add back fair value stock-based compensation expense, acquisition-related costs which includes integration costs, changes in the contingent consideration obligation, deferred compensation expense related to earn outs and amortization of intangibles associated with acquisitions.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures as detailed above. As previously mentioned, a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results has been provided in the financial statement tables included in this press release.
