Descartes Announces Fiscal 2020 Second Quarter Results

GlobeNewswire - Wed Sep 4, 3:01PM CDT

Record Revenues and Income from Operations

The Descartes Systems Group Inc. (TSX:DSG.TO) (Nasdaq:DSGX) announced its financial results for its fiscal 2020 second quarter (Q2FY20). All financial results referenced are in United States (US) currency and, unless otherwise indicated, are determined in accordance with US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).

"Our customers are facing a more dynamic business environment than ever, with global trade regulations changing on a daily basis and economic conditions in constant flux," said Edward J. Ryan, Descartes' CEO. "This creates opportunities for companies that can react quickly with timely, reliable information and challenges for those that cannot. Our continued investments in our Global Logistics Network are helping our customers successfully navigate this environment, and in turn our customers continue to do more business with us, which is reflected in our strong financial results."

Q2FY20 Financial Results

As described in more detail below, key financial highlights for Descartes' Q2FY20 included:

-- Revenues of $80.5 million, up 20% from $67.1 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 (Q2FY19) and up 3% from $78.0 million in the previous quarter (Q1FY20);

-- Revenues were comprised of services revenues of $71.4 million (89% of total revenues), professional services and other revenues of $8.0 million (10% of total revenues) and license revenues of $1.1 million (1% of total revenues). Services revenues were up 20% from $59.7 million in Q2FY19 and up 7% from $67.0 million in Q1FY20;

-- Cash provided by operating activities of $26.9 million, up 48% from $18.2 million in Q2FY19 and up 15% from $23.4 million in Q1FY20;

-- Income from operations of $13.1 million, up 30% from $10.1 million in Q2FY19 and up 10% from $11.9 million in Q1FY20;

-- Net income of $8.6 million, up 1% from $8.5 million in Q2FY19 and up 18% from $7.3 million in Q1FY20;

-- Earnings per share on a diluted basis of $0.10, compared to $0.11 in Q2FY19 and $0.09 in Q1FY20; and

-- Adjusted EBITDA of $30.2 million, up 32% from $22.8 million in Q2FY19 and up 5% from $28.7 million in Q1FY20. Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenues was 38%, compared to 34% in Q2FY19 and 37% in Q1FY20.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenues are non-GAAP financial measures provided as a complement to financial results presented in accordance with GAAP. We define Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation (for which we include related fees and taxes) and other charges (for which we include restructuring charges and acquisition-related expenses). These items are considered by management to be outside Descartes' ongoing operational results. We define Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenues as the quotient, expressed as a percentage, from dividing Adjusted EBITDA for a period by revenues for the corresponding period. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenues to net income determined in accordance with GAAP is provided later in this release.

The following table summarizes Descartes' results in the categories specified below over the past 5 fiscal quarters (unaudited; dollar amounts, other than per share amounts, in millions):

Acquisition of CORE

On May 10, 2019, Descartes acquired Core Transport Technologies NZ Limited ("CORE"), an electronic transportation network that provides global air carriers and ground handlers with shipment scanning and tracking solutions. The purchase price for the acquisition was approximately $21.8 million, net of cash acquired, which was funded from drawing on Descartes' existing credit facility. Additional contingent consideration of up to $9.0 million in cash is payable if certain revenue performance targets are met by CORE in the two years following the acquisition.

Public Offering

On June 10, 2019, Descartes completed a public offering of common shares in the United States and Canada at a price of $35.50 per common share pursuant to a short-form base shelf prospectus and related prospectus supplement filed in connection with the offering. The total offering of 6,900,000 common shares included the exercise in full by the underwriters of a 15% over-allotment option, for aggregate gross proceeds to Descartes of $245.0 million. Net proceeds to Descartes were approximately $236.6 million once expenses associated with the offering were deducted inclusive of the related deferred tax benefit on share issuance costs.

Acquisition of STEPcom

On June 27, 2019, Descartes acquired Tegmento AG and Contentis AG (collectively, "STEPcom"), a Business-to-Business supply chain integration network based in Switzerland. The purchase price for the acquisition was approximately $18.6 million, net of cash acquired, which was funded from drawing on Descartes' existing credit facility.

Acquisition of BestTransport

On August 20, 2019, Descartes acquired all the shares of BestTransport.com, Inc.

These assumptions may prove to be inaccurate.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures - Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenues

We prepare and release quarterly unaudited and annual audited financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. We also disclose and discuss certain non-GAAP financial information, used to evaluate our performance, in this and other earnings releases and investor conference calls as a complement to results provided in accordance with GAAP. We believe that current shareholders and potential investors in our company use non-GAAP financial measures, such as Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenues, in making investment decisions about our company and measuring our operational results.

The term "Adjusted EBITDA" refers to a financial measure that we define as earnings before certain charges that management considers to be non-operating expenses and which consist of interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation (for which we include related fees and taxes) and other charges (for which we include restructuring charges and acquisition-related expenses). Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenues divides Adjusted EBITDA for a period by the revenues for the corresponding period and expresses the quotient as a percentage.

Management considers these non-operating expenses to be outside the scope of Descartes' ongoing operations and the related expenses are not used by management to measure operations. Accordingly, these expenses are excluded from Adjusted EBITDA, which we reference to both measure our operations and as a basis of comparison of our operations from period-to-period. Management believes that investors and financial analysts measure our business on the same basis, and we are providing the Adjusted EBITDA financial metric to assist in this evaluation and to provide a higher level of transparency into how we measure our own business. However, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenues are non-GAAP financial measures and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenues should not be construed as a substitute for net income determined in accordance with GAAP or other non-GAAP measures that may be used by other companies, such as EBITDA. The use of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenues does have limitations. In particular, we have completed three acquisitions since the beginning of fiscal 2020 and may complete additional acquisitions in the future that will result in acquisition-related expenses and restructuring charges. As these acquisition-related expenses and restructuring charges may continue as we pursue our consolidation strategy, some investors may consider these charges and expenses as a recurring part of operations rather than expenses that are not part of operations.

The table below reconciles Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenues to net income reported in our unaudited Consolidated Statements of Operations for Q2FY20 Q1FY20, Q4FY19, Q3FY19 and Q2FY19, which we believe is the most directly comparable GAAP measure.
