Chairman Succession Plan
The Company is announcing a board succession plan whereby the Company’s co-founder and Chairman, Michael K. Simon, will resign from the board, effective upon the conclusion of the Company’s Annual Meeting of Stockholders on May 30, 2019 and his position as Chairman effective March 1, 2019.  The Board has named Robert Calderoni, who is currently serving as a member of the Board, to succeed Mr. Simon as the Company’s Chairman. 

“The success of LogMeIn is one of the brightest spots of my career in technology, and it has been my privilege to work with such an amazing group of talented people around the world.  As I step down to pursue a new personal business interest, I leave with the utmost confidence in the executive leadership team,” said Michael Simon, co-founder of LogMeIn.  “I fully support our strategic plans to invest in growth and believe they will lead to the creation of long-term enduring value”.

Restructuring Plan
In order to help fund these growth initiatives, the Company will undertake a global restructuring plan designed to streamline our organization and reallocate resources to better align with our growth acceleration goals.  The Company expects to substantially complete this restructuring by the end of fiscal year 2019.  Upon completion of the plan, the Company expects to achieve annualized cost savings of approximately $26 million.   

Dividend
In accordance with its previously announced capital return plan, the Company will pay a $0.325 per share dividend on March 12, 2019 to stockholders of record as of February 25, 2019.  The Company currently has approximately 50.8 million shares of common stock outstanding.

Business Outlook
Based on information available as of February 14, 2019, the Company is issuing guidance for the first quarter 2019 and fiscal year 2019. 

First Quarter 2019: The Company expects first quarter non-GAAP revenue to be in the range of $304 million to $306 million.  The Company expects first quarter GAAP revenue to be in the range of $303 million to $305 million.  Non-GAAP revenue adds back $1 million for the impact of an acquisition accounting adjustment recorded to reduce acquired deferred revenue to the fair value of the remaining obligation.

EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $65 million to $67 million, or approximately 22% of GAAP revenue.  Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $94 million to $96 million, or approximately 31% of non-GAAP revenue. 

Non-GAAP net income is expected to be in the range of $57 million to $59 million, or $1.12 to $1.15 per diluted share.  Non-GAAP net income adds back the non-GAAP revenue adjustment described above and excludes an estimated $16 million in stock-based compensation expense, $3 million in acquisition and litigation-related costs, $61 million of amortization expense of acquired intangible assets, and $9 million of restructuring charges, as well as the income tax effect of the above items.

Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter assumes an effective tax rate of approximately 25% and GAAP net income assumes a tax benefit of approximately $2 million for the first quarter. Non-GAAP net income per diluted share is based on an estimated 51.1 million fully-diluted weighted average shares outstanding.  GAAP net loss per share is based on an estimated 50.7 million weighted average shares outstanding.

Including stock-based compensation expense, acquisition-related costs and amortization, litigation-related expense, and restructuring charges, the Company expects to report GAAP net loss in the range of $11 million to $9 million, or $0.21 to $0.17 per share.   

Fiscal year 2019: The Company expects full year 2019 non-GAAP revenue to be in the range of $1.250 billion to $1.260 billion.  The Company expects full year 2019 GAAP revenue to be in the range of $1.249 billion to $1.259 billion.  Non-GAAP revenue adds back $1 million for the impact of an acquisition accounting adjustment recorded to reduce acquired deferred revenue to the fair value of the remaining obligation.

EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $300 million to $305 million, or approximately 24% of GAAP revenue.  Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $407 million to $412 million, or approximately 33% of non-GAAP revenue.

Non-GAAP net income is expected to be in the range of $248 million to $252 million, or $4.90 to $4.97 per diluted share.  Non-GAAP net income adds back the non-GAAP revenue adjustment described above and excludes an estimated $77 million in stock-based compensation expense, $13 million in acquisition and litigation-related costs, $244 million of amortization expense of acquired intangible assets, and $16 million of restructuring charges, as well as the income tax effect of the above items.

Non-GAAP net income for the fiscal year assumes an effective tax rate of approximately 25% and GAAP net income for the fiscal year assumes a tax benefit of approximately $1 million.  Non-GAAP net income per diluted share is based on an estimated 50.6 million fully-diluted weighted average shares outstanding.  GAAP net loss per share is based on an estimated 49.9 million weighted average shares outstanding.

Including stock-based compensation expense, acquisition-related costs and amortization, litigation-related expense, and restructuring charges, the Company expects to report GAAP net loss in the range of $17 million to $13 million, or $0.34 to $0.25 per share.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures including non-GAAP revenue, EBITDA, EBITDA margin, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP income before provision for income taxes, non-GAAP provision for income taxes, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net income per diluted share and adjusted cash flow from operations.

  • Non-GAAP revenue is GAAP revenue excluding the impact of fair value acquisition accounting adjustment on acquired deferred revenue. 
  • EBITDA is GAAP net income excluding provision for income taxes, interest income, interest expense, and other (expense) income, net, and depreciation and amortization. 
  • EBITDA margin is calculated by dividing EBITDA by revenue. 
  • Adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA excluding the impact of fair value acquisition accounting adjustment on acquired deferred revenue, acquisition-related costs, gain on disposition of non-core assets, stock-based compensation expense, restructuring charges, and litigation-related expense.  
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin is calculated by dividing adjusted EBITDA by non-GAAP revenue, or GAAP revenue if not different.  
  • Non-GAAP operating income excludes the impact of fair value acquisition accounting adjustment on acquired deferred revenue, acquisition related costs and amortization, gain on disposition of non-core assets, stock-based compensation expense, restructuring charges, and litigation-related expense and includes amortization expense for GoTo’s internally capitalized software development costs that were adjusted in acquisition accounting to fair value.
  • Non-GAAP provision for income taxes excludes the tax impact of the fair value acquisition accounting adjustment on acquired deferred revenue, acquisition-related costs and amortization, gain on disposition of non-core assets, stock-based compensation expense, restructuring charges, litigation-related expense, discrete integration related tax impacts, and the tax impact related to the enactment of the U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, and includes the tax impact of amortization expense for GoTo’s internally capitalized software development costs that were adjusted in acquisition accounting to fair value.
  • Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share reflects the adjustments noted in non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP provision for income taxes above.
  • Adjusted cash flow from operations excludes acquisition, restructuring, disposition and litigation related payments.

The exclusion of certain expenses in the calculation of non-GAAP financial measures should not be construed as an inference that these costs are unusual or infrequent. We anticipate excluding these expenses in the future presentation of our non-GAAP financial measures. The Company believes that these non-GAAP measures of financial results provide useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to the Company's financial condition and results of operations. The Company's management uses these non-GAAP measures to compare the Company's performance to that of prior periods and uses these measures in financial reports prepared for management and the Company's board of directors. The Company 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 the Company's financial measures with other software-as-a-service companies, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. The Company does not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitation of these non-GAAP financial measures is that they exclude significant elements that are required by GAAP to be recorded in the Company's financial statements. In addition, they are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of judgment by management in determining these non-GAAP financial measures. In order to compensate for these limitations, management of the Company presents its non-GAAP financial measures in connection with its GAAP results. The Company urges investors to review the reconciliation of its non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures, which it includes in press releases announcing quarterly financial results, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate the Company's business. Reconciliation tables of the most comparable GAAP financial measures to the non-GAAP measures used in this press release are included in this release.
