Denver, Colorado, UNITED STATES


DENVER, Nov. 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EverCommerce Inc. (NASDAQ: EVCM), a leading service commerce platform, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021.

“EverCommerce’s third quarter results were highlighted by 44% revenue growth and adjusted EBITDA margins that exceeded 20%. Our strong results are driven by the value we bring to our SMB services providers as they continue to digitize their businesses. Following our strong quarter, we also recently announced our acquisition of DrChrono, which expands our presence in the health services vertical with another robust system of action," said Eric Remer, EverCommerce’s Founder and CEO.

Third Quarter 2021 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue for the third quarter of 2021 was $128.5 million, an increase of 44% compared to $89.2 million for the third quarter of 2020.
  • Pro forma revenue growth rate was 20% year-over-year in Q3 2021 and 21% year-over-year for the first nine months.
  • Net loss was $36.9 million, or $(0.20) per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2021. This compares to a net loss of $5.4 million, or $(0.46) per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2020.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $29.0 million for the third quarter of 2021, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $29.1 million for the third quarter of 2020.
  • Cash flow provided by operations was $13.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 compared to cash flow provided by operations of $32.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.
  • Cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash was $98.3 million as of September 30, 2021 compared to $98.3 million at December 31, 2020. Total debt was $385.1 million at September 30, 2021, implying net leverage of 2.2x using Credit Agreement Defined Adjusted EBITDA.

A reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP measures has been provided in the financial statement tables included at the end of this press release. An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”

Other Third Quarter and Recent Highlights

  • Announced the acquisition of DrChrono, a leading provider of mobile-first, cloud-based electronic health record (EHR), practice management, medical billing, and revenue cycle management solutions. Based in Sunnyvale, California, DrChrono develops the essential platforms and services for modern medical practices to make healthcare more informed, more interactive, and more personalized, and adds an important system of action to our EverHealth suite of solutions.
  • Announced the launch of EverConnect, a performance marketing and lead generation platform. EverConnect consolidates three industry-leading lead generation products to create a one-stop shop for marketers and service professionals to connect with consumers.
  • Announced ASF Payment Solutions and Club OS, two solutions of the EverWell solutions group, were selected by World Gym International as their designated software solutions.

Business Outlook

Based on information as of today, November 8, 2021, the Company is increasing its outlook for revenue for the fourth quarter and full year 2021 and is issuing the following financial guidance. Please note that the Q4 and full year 2021 outlook includes contributions from our recently announced acquisitions.

Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2021:

  • Revenue is expected to be in the range of $129.5 million to $131 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $27 million to $28 million.

Full Year 2021:

  • Revenue is expected to be in the range of $484.0 million to $485.5 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $105.0 million to $106.0 million.

A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, is not available without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to the high variability, complexity and low visibility with respect to certain charges excluded from this non-GAAP measure; in particular, the measures and efforts of stock-based compensation expense specific to equity compensation awards that are directly impacted by unpredictable fluctuations in our stock price. It is important to note that these charges could be material to EverCommerce's results computed in accordance with GAAP.

Key Business and Financial Metrics

Pro Forma Revenue Growth Rate is a key performance measure that our management uses to assess our consolidated operating performance over time. Management also uses this metric for planning and forecasting purposes.

Our year-over-year Pro Forma Revenue Growth Rate is calculated as though all acquisitions closed as of the end of the latest period were closed as of the first day of the prior year period presented. In calculating Pro Forma Revenue Growth Rate, we add the revenue from acquisitions for the reporting periods prior to the date of acquisition (including estimated purchase accounting adjustments) to our results of operations, and then calculate our revenue growth rate between the two reported periods. As a result, Pro Forma Revenue Growth Rate includes pro forma revenue from businesses acquired during the period, including revenue generated during periods when we did not yet own the acquired businesses. In including such pre acquisition revenue, Pro Forma Revenue Growth Rate allows us to measure the underlying revenue growth of our business as it stands as of the end of the respective period, which we believe provides insight into our then-current operations. Pro Forma Revenue Growth Rate does not represent organic revenue generated by our business as it stood at the beginning of the respective period. Pro Forma Revenue Growth Rates are not necessarily indicative of either future results of operations or actual results that might have been achieved had the acquisitions been consummated on the first day of the prior year period presented. We believe that this metric is useful to investors in analyzing our financial and operational performance period over period and evaluating the growth of our business, normalizing for the impact of acquisitions. This metric is particularly useful to management due to the number of acquired entities.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EverCommerce has provided in this press release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”). EverCommerce uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing its financial results and believes that use of these non-GAAP financial measures is useful to investors as an additional tool to evaluate ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing EverCommerce’s financial results with other companies in its industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures.

Non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP financial measures and should be read only in conjunction with EverCommerce’s condensed consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of EverCommerce’s historical non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures has been provided in the financial statement tables included in this press release, and investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation.

Adjusted Gross Profit. Adjusted Gross Profit is a key performance measure that our management uses to assess our operational performance, as it represents the results of revenues and direct costs, which are key components of our operations. We believe that this non-GAAP financial measure is useful to investors and other interested parties in analyzing our financial performance because it reflects the gross profitability of our operations, and excludes the indirect costs associated with our sales and marketing, product development, general and administrative activities, and depreciation and amortization, and the impact of our financing methods and income taxes.

We calculate Adjusted Gross Profit as gross profit adjusted to exclude depreciation and amortization allocated to cost of revenues. Gross profit is calculated as total revenues less cost of revenues (exclusive of depreciation and amortization), amortization of developed technology, amortization of capitalized software and depreciation expense (allocated to cost of revenues). Adjusted Gross Profit should be viewed as a measure of operating performance that is a supplement to, and not a substitute for, operating income or loss, net earnings or loss and other U.S. GAAP measures of income (loss) or profitability.

Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA is a key performance measure that our management uses to assess our financial performance and is also used for internal planning and forecasting purposes. We believe that this non-GAAP financial measure is useful to investors and other interested parties in analyzing our financial performance because it provides a comparable overview of our operations across historical periods. In addition, we believe that providing Adjusted EBITDA, together with a reconciliation of net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA, helps investors make comparisons between our company and other companies that may have different capital structures, different tax rates, and/or different forms of employee compensation.

Adjusted EBITDA is used by our management team as an additional measure of our performance for purposes of business decision-making, including managing expenditures, and evaluating potential acquisitions. Period-to-period comparisons of Adjusted EBITDA help our management identify additional trends in our financial results that may not be shown solely by period-to-period comparisons of net income or income from continuing operations. In addition, we may use Adjusted EBITDA in the incentive compensation programs applicable to some of our employees. Our Management recognizes that Adjusted EBITDA has inherent limitations because of the excluded items, and may not be directly comparable to similarly titled metrics used by other companies.

We calculate Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) adjusted to exclude interest and other expense, net, income tax expense (benefit), loss on debt extinguishment, depreciation and amortization, other amortization, acquisition related costs, stock-based compensation, and other non-recurring costs. Other amortization includes amortization for capitalized contract acquisition costs. Acquisition related costs are specific deal-related costs such as legal fees, financial and tax due diligence, consulting and escrow fees. Other non-recurring costs are expenses such as system implementation costs and severance related to planned restructuring activities. Acquisition related costs and other non-recurring costs are excluded as they are not representative of our underlying operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA should be viewed as a measure of operating performance that is a supplement to, and not a substitute for, operating income or loss, net earnings or loss and other U.S. GAAP measures of income (loss). The following table presents a reconciliation of net loss, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP, to Adjusted EBITDA on a consolidated basis.
