Third Quarter Fiscal 2020 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue: Total revenue was $39.6 million, up 21% year-over-year. Subscription and services revenue increased to $36.5 million and was 92% of total revenue, driven by 24% year-over-year growth in combined Ooma Business and Ooma Residential services.
  • Net Income/Loss: GAAP net loss was $6.8 million, or $0.32 per basic and diluted share, compared to GAAP net loss of $3.5 million, or $0.18 per basic and diluted share, in the third quarter fiscal 2019. GAAP net loss includes a $3.1 million charge relating to certain restructuring activities taken at the end of the quarter. Non-GAAP net income was $0.1 million, or $0.01 per basic and diluted share, compared to a loss of $0.5 million, or $0.03 per basic and diluted share in the prior year period.
  • Adjusted EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA was $0.6 million, compared to ($0.2) million loss in third quarter fiscal 2019.

“Ooma delivered strong results for the third quarter of our 2020 fiscal year”, said Eric Stang, chief executive officer.  “We achieved 21% year-over-year revenue growth, driven primarily by 67% growth in subscription services revenues from business customers, and an important milestone with non-GAAP profitability.  We also took actions in Q3 to strengthen our focus on serving and growing business customers going forward”.

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 income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss) per share, non-GAAP gross profit and gross margin, non-GAAP operating loss, and Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA represents the net income (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 acquired intangibles, restructuring charges and certain litigation costs outside the ordinary course of our business.  For the third quarter of fiscal 2020, restructuring charges primarily included write-downs for Smart Cam inventory  and certain assets including the related intangibles and severance expenses for the affected employees.

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.
