SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ —
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Cloudera, Inc. (NYSE: CLDR), the enterprise data cloud company, reported results for its third quarter of fiscal 2021, ended October 31, 2020. Total revenue for the third quarter was $217.9 million, an increase of 10% as compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2020. Subscription revenue was $197.4 million, an increase of 18% as compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2020. Annualized Recurring Revenue grew 12% year-over-year.

“In the third quarter, CDP Private Cloud became generally available, we announced three new upcoming cloud-native services on CDP Public Cloud, and the number of CDP Public Cloud paying customers increased by more than 40%. With CDP Private Cloud now in-market, our hybrid multi-cloud offerings can be implemented by customers and our Enterprise Data Cloud vision is nearly complete. We are beginning to see an acceleration of migrations by existing customers from legacy Cloudera and Hortonworks platforms to CDP,” said Rob Bearden, chief executive officer, Cloudera. “We believe that Cloudera has never been better-positioned to capture more of the rapidly growing data management and analytics market opportunity for hybrid multi-cloud solutions. As a result, we have announced today that the board has authorized the repurchase of an additional $500 million in shares of our stock.”

Third Quarter Fiscal 2021 Results

  • GAAP loss from operations for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 was $12.3 million, compared to $82.5 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2020

  • Non-GAAP income from operations for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 was $49.3 million, compared to a non-GAAP loss from operations of $8.2 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2020

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

Business Outlook

The outlook for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021, ending January 31, 2021 is:

  • Total revenue in the range of $219 million to $222 million

  • Subscription revenue in the range of $199 million to $202 million

  • Non-GAAP operating income in the range of $35 million to $40 million

  • Non-GAAP net income per share in the range of $0.10 to $0.12 per share

  • Diluted weighted-average share count of approximately 323 million shares

The outlook for fiscal 2021, ending January 31, 2021, is:

  • Total revenue in the range of $862 million to $865 million

  • Subscription revenue in the range of $775 million to $778 million

  • Non-GAAP operating income in the range of $131 million to $136 million

  • Non-GAAP net income per share in the range of $0.40 to $0.42 per share

  • Diluted weighted-average share count of approximately 317 million shares

The business outlook is based on the assumption that the recessionary impact of the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) will continue at least through Cloudera’s fourth quarter fiscal 2021.

Share Repurchase Authorization

Cloudera’s board of directors has authorized the repurchase of up to an additional $500 million in shares of our common stock, through open market purchases, block trades and/or in privately negotiated transactions, pursuant to Rule 10b5-1 plans, or other repurchase mechanisms, in compliance with applicable securities laws and other legal requirements. The timing, volume and nature of any repurchases will be determined by Cloudera’s management based on their evaluation of the capital needs of the business, market conditions, applicable legal requirements and other factors. The repurchase program will be executed consistent with our capital allocation strategy, balancing investment to grow the business over the long-term and return of capital to shareholders. No time limit was set for the completion of the repurchase program, the program may be suspended or discontinued at any time and the program does not obligate Cloudera to purchase any shares. The amount of shares Cloudera has been authorized to repurchase may be increased or decreased at any time by our board of directors. The repurchase program is conditioned upon the closing of an institutional term loan, which we believe can be closed during our current fiscal quarter. Cloudera currently expects to fund the repurchase program using proceeds from this term loan, and/or with our existing cash or cash generated from operations. Cloudera’s ability to secure proceeds from and the timing of closing such an institutional term loan are subject to market conditions and other factors beyond our control.

Forward-Looking Statements

Statements in this press release that are not historical in nature are forward-looking statements that, within the meaning of the federal securities laws including the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties. Words such as “may”, “will”, “expect”, “intend”, “plan”, “believe”, “seek”, “could”, “estimate”, “judgment”, “targeting”, “should”, “anticipate”, “goal” and variations of these words and similar expressions, are also intended to identify forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements in this press release address a variety of subjects, including statements about our short-term and long-term assumptions, goals and targets, including our “Business Outlook” for our fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 and our full year fiscal 2021 operating results. Readers are cautioned that actual results could differ materially from those implied by such forward-looking statements due to a variety of factors, including global economic conditions, competitive pressures and pricing declines, intellectual property infringement claims, the impact of and uncertainties related to COVID-19, and other risks or uncertainties that are described under the caption “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K and our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and in our other SEC filings. You can obtain copies of our SEC filings on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov. Additionally, these forward-looking statements, particularly our guidance, involve risk, uncertainties and assumptions, including those related to the impact of COVID-19 on our business and global economic conditions. Many of these assumptions relate to matters that are beyond our control and changing rapidly, including, but not limited to, the timeframes for and severity of the impact of COVID-19 on our customers’ purchasing decisions and the length of our sales cycles, particularly for customers in certain industries highly affected by COVID-19. Although we believe the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are based upon reasonable assumptions, we can give no assurances that our expectations will be attained. We undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We report all financial information required in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). To supplement our unaudited and audited condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, we use certain non-GAAP measures of financial performance. The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation from, as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the results of our operations as determined in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures used by us include non-GAAP cost of revenue-subscription, non-GAAP cost of revenue-services, non-GAAP subscription gross margin, non-GAAP services gross margin, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating margin, and historical and forward-looking non-GAAP income/loss from operations, non-GAAP net income/loss, and non-GAAP net income/loss per share. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude stock-based compensation, acquisition and disposition-related expenses (if any), extraordinary non-cash real estate impairment charges (if any), and amortization of acquired intangible assets from our unaudited and audited condensed consolidated statement of operations.

For a description of these items, including the reasons why management adjusts for them, and reconciliations of historical non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, please see the section of the accompanying financial statement tables titled “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information” as well as the related financial statement tables that precede it. We may consider whether other significant non-recurring items that arise in the future should also be excluded in calculating the non-GAAP financial measures we use.

We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures, when taken together with the corresponding GAAP financial measures, provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our performance by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of our core business, operating results or future outlook. Management uses, and believes that investors benefit from referring to, these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing our operating results, as well as when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. We use these non-GAAP financial measures in conjunction with traditional GAAP measures to communicate with our board of directors concerning our financial performance. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate comparisons of our performance to prior periods.

Annualized Recurring Revenue

Annualized Recurring Revenue (“ARR”) is a performance metric, which we use to assess the health and trajectory of our business. ARR equals the annualized value of all recurring subscription contracts with active entitlements as of the end of the period. ARR does not reflect non-recurring partner revenue, subscription revenue with certain related parties, custom engineering, remote operation and management services, or premium add-on support.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

In addition to the reasons stated under “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” above, which are generally applicable to each of the items we exclude from our non-GAAP financial measures, we believe it is appropriate to exclude or give effect to certain items for the following reasons:

  • Stock-based compensation expense. We exclude stock-based compensation expense from our non-GAAP financial measures consistent with how we evaluate our operating results and prepare our operating plans, forecasts and budgets. Further, when considering the impact of equity award grants, we focus on overall stockholder dilution rather than the accounting charges associated with such equity grants. The exclusion of the expense facilitates the comparison of results and business outlook for future periods with results for prior periods in order to better understand the long-term performance of our business.

  • Amortization of acquired intangible assets. We exclude the amortization of acquired intangible assets from our non-GAAP financial measures. Although the purchase accounting for an acquisition necessarily reflects the accounting value assigned to intangible assets, our management team excludes the GAAP impact of acquired intangible assets when evaluating our operating results. Likewise, our management team excludes amortization of acquired intangible assets from our operating plans, forecasts and budgets. The exclusion of the expense facilitates the comparison of results and business outlook for future periods with results for prior periods in order to better understand the long-term performance of our business.

  • Extraordinary non-cash real estate impairment charges. We currently lease approximately 225,000 square feet of space for our former corporate headquarters in Palo Alto, California under a lease agreement that expires in 2027. Upon the completion of the merger with Hortonworks, we added approximately 92,000 square feet of space in Santa Clara, California under a lease agreement that expires in 2026 and we relocated our corporate headquarters to this space during the second quarter of fiscal 2021. Extraordinary non-cash real estate impairment charges relate to potential charges that we may incur as a result of future activities with respect to our leased office locations.
