SPS Commerce Reports Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results

MINNEAPOLIS, July 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SPS Commerce, Inc. (Nasdaq: SPSC), a leader in retail cloud services, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

Revenue was $75.6 million in the second quarter of 2020, compared to $68.5 million in the second quarter of 2019, reflecting 10% growth in revenue from the second quarter of 2019. Recurring revenue grew 11% from the second quarter of 2019. 

Net income in the second quarter of 2020 was $11.2 million or $0.31 per diluted share, compared to net income of $8.8 million or $0.24 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2019. Non-GAAP income per diluted share was $0.37 compared to non-GAAP income per diluted share of $0.30 in the second quarter of 2019.

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2020 increased 25% to $20.4 million compared to the second quarter of 2019.

“The dynamics impacting the retail industry continued into the second quarter with both retailers and suppliers seeing the need for increased efficiency and automation across the supply chain, underscoring the critical nature of the service we provide,” said Archie Black, President and CEO of SPS Commerce.  “The challenges we have endured this year have impacted our communities, our businesses and our lives.  We would like to thank SPS Commerce employees for their ongoing dedication to our customers and our communities. We remain committed to take action and make progress in the years ahead.” 

“We cannot predict the duration and magnitude of the pandemic and its growing impact on the economy, but the challenges the retail industry faces underscore the need for EDI and supply chain automation.  With our cloud-native operational model, SPS Commerce is well positioned to continue to provide mission critical solutions and support our customers, partners and our community,” said Kim Nelson, CFO of SPS Commerce.   

Guidance

For the third quarter of 2020, revenue is expected to be in the range of $76.6 million to $77.1 million.  Third quarter net income per diluted share is expected to be in the range of $0.19 to $0.20 with fully diluted weighted average shares outstanding of approximately 36.3 million shares.  Non-GAAP income per diluted share is expected to be in the range of $0.32 to $0.33.  Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $20.5 million to $21.0 million.  Non-cash, share-based compensation expense is expected to be approximately $5.1 million, depreciation expense is expected to be approximately $3.5 million and amortization expense is expected to be approximately $1.4 million.

The dynamics of the current situation continue to impact our business and we continue to monitor the uncertainty around the duration and magnitude of the pandemic, and the impact that a second wave of infections may have on economic activity.  We are also taking into account the possibility of continued pressure on retailers, prolonged store closures and potential bankruptcies, all of which would negatively impact our business.  However, with two quarters left in the year, and the ongoing need for automation across our network which continues to drive momentum for our Fulfillment product, we are reinstating 2020 annual guidance.

For the full year of 2020, revenue is expected to be in the range of $304.1 million to $305.3 million, representing approximately 9% growth over 2019. Full year net income per diluted share is expected to be in the range of $0.99 to $1.00 with fully diluted weighted average shares outstanding of approximately 36.1 million shares.   Non-GAAP income per diluted share is expected to be in the range of $1.41 to $1.42. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $82.4 to $83.5 million, representing approximately 18% to 20% growth over 2019. Non-cash, share-based compensation expense is expected to be approximately $19.6 million, depreciation expense is expected to be approximately $13.4 million and amortization expense is expected to be approximately $5.5 million.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement its financial statements, SPS Commerce also provides investors with Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income per share, which are non-GAAP financial measures. SPS Commerce believes that these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to its financial condition and results of operations. SPS Commerce's management uses these non-GAAP measures to compare the company's performance to that of prior periods for trend analyses and planning purposes. It uses Adjusted EBITDA for purposes of determining executive and senior management incentive compensation. These measures are also presented to the company's board of directors.

Adjusted EBITDA consists of net income adjusted for depreciation and amortization, investment income (interest income/expense, realized investments gain/loss excluding realized gain/loss from foreign currency on investments), income tax expense, stock-based compensation expense, realized gain/loss from foreign currency on cash and investments held, and other adjustments as necessary for a fair presentation. SPS Commerce uses Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of operating performance because it assists the company in comparing performance on a consistent basis, as it removes from operating results the impact of the company's capital structure. SPS Commerce believes Adjusted EBITDA is useful to an investor in evaluating the company's operating performance because it is widely used to measure a company's operating performance without regard to items such as depreciation and amortization, which can vary depending upon accounting methods and the book value of assets, and to present a meaningful measure of corporate performance exclusive of the company's capital structure and the method by which assets were acquired.

Non-GAAP income per share consists of net income plus stock-based compensation expense, amortization expense related to intangible assets, realized loss from foreign currency on cash and investments held, and other adjustments as necessary for a fair presentation, divided by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during each period.  SPS Commerce includes an adjustment to non-GAAP income to reflect the income tax effects of the adjustments to GAAP net income. To quantify these tax effects, SPS Commerce recalculates income tax expense excluding the direct book and tax effects of the specific items constituting the non-GAAP adjustments (e.g., stock-based compensation expense). The difference between this recalculated income tax expense and GAAP income tax expense is presented as the income tax effect of the non-GAAP adjustments. SPS Commerce believes non-GAAP income per share is useful to an investor because it is widely used to measure a company's operating performance.  These non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP to be recorded in the company's financial statements and are subject to inherent limitations. SPS Commerce urges investors to review the reconciliation of its non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures that are included in this press release.
