Aerohive Networks (NYSE: HIVE), a leader in cloud-managed networking, today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2019.

"We delivered a solid second quarter with revenue, gross margin, and non-GAAP EPS all within or better than our guidance ranges. Aerohive’s Subscription and Support revenue was up 19% year-over-year, reflecting continued improvements in our operating leverage,” stated David Flynn, president and chief executive officer, Aerohive Networks. “As announced in June, we signed a definitive agreement to be acquired by Extreme Networks in an all cash transaction for $4.45 per share. We are very excited about the combination of Extreme Networks and Aerohive Networks and expect the acquisition to close approximately August 9th.”

Commentary regarding Aerohive Acquisition by Extreme Networks

On June 26, 2019, Aerohive Networks announced that it had entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by Extreme Networks, Inc. Due to the pending acquisition, Aerohive will not hold an earnings conference call and has suspended the practice of providing forward-looking guidance.

Safe Harbor Statement

This press release may contain forward-looking statements made in reliance upon the safe harbor provisions of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, including, but not limited to any statements regarding or relating to the transaction between Aerohive Networks, Extreme Networks, and Clover Merger Sub, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Extreme Networks (“Purchaser”); any statements of expectation or belief; any statement regarding the future financial performance of Aerohive Networks; and any statements of assumptions underlying any of the foregoing. These forward-looking statements are based on information currently available to Aerohive Networks and are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause results to differ from expectations include, but are not limited to: (i) uncertainties as to the timing of the tender offer and the merger; (ii) uncertainties as to how many of the holders of shares will tender their shares into the tender offer; (iii) the possibility that various closing conditions for the tender offer or the merger may not be satisfied or waived; (iv) legal proceedings that may be instituted against Aerohive Networks and others following announcement of the definitive agreement entered into with Extreme Networks and Purchaser; (v) other business effects, including the effects of industrial, economic or political conditions outside of Aerohive Networks’ control; (vi) transaction costs and/or actual or contingent liabilities; and (vii) other risks and uncertainties. Although Aerohive Networks believes that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, Aerohive Networks cannot guarantee future results, performance or achievements and no assurance can be given that the actual results will be consistent with these forward-looking statements. Aerohive Networks does not intend to update any of the forward-looking statements after the date of this communication to conform these statements to actual results, to changes in management's expectations or otherwise, except as may be required by law.

Additional risks and uncertainties that could affect Aerohive’s financial and operating results are included under the captions "Risk Factors" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations," in the Company’s recent annual report on Form 10-K and quarterly report on Form 10-Q. Aerohive’s SEC filings are available on the Investor Relations section of the Company’s website at https://ir.aerohive.com and on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov. All forward-looking statements in this press release are based on information available to the Company as of the date hereof, and Aerohive Networks disclaims any obligation to update the forward-looking statements provided to reflect events that occur or circumstances that exist after the date on which they were made, except as required by law.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Aerohive’s results for its second quarter of fiscal year 2019 reported in this press release include certain non-GAAP financial measures, including:

  • non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin;
  • non-GAAP product gross profit and non-GAAP product gross margin;
  • non-GAAP subscription and support gross profit and non-GAAP subscription and support gross margin;
  • non-GAAP operating income (loss) and non-GAAP operating margin;
  • non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share;
  • non-GAAP operating expenses and non-GAAP functional expenses; and
  • non-GAAP operating expense percentage and non-GAAP functional expense percentage.

The Company defines non-GAAP financial measures to exclude share-based compensation, adjustments to internal-use software amortization, and certain charges related to litigation and restructuring.

The Company has included certain non-GAAP financial measures in this press release because the Company believes they are key measures which can be used to evaluate the business, measure performance, identify trends affecting the business, formulate financial projections and make strategic decisions. In particular, the exclusion of certain expenses in calculating these non-GAAP financial measures can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of the Company’s core business.

Although investors frequently use non-GAAP financial measures in their evaluations of companies, these non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company’s results of operations, as determined in accordance with GAAP. Some of these limitations are:

  • the non-GAAP measures do not consider the expense related to stock-based compensation, which is an ongoing expense for the Company;
  • although amortization of internal-use software is a non-cash charge, the assets being amortized often will have to be replaced in the future, and the non-GAAP measures do not reflect any future cash requirement for such replacements;
  • excluding certain expenses associated with litigation in the quarter or fiscal year does not reflect the impact on our ongoing operations over these periods of the cash requirement to defend such or other litigation;
  • restructuring charges excluded in the quarter or fiscal year primarily relate to employee termination costs and benefits and do not reflect the cash requirement relating to the costs associated with such restructuring;
  • legal and other fees related to the proposed acquisition are items that are non-recurring and excluding these charges provide better comparative measure; and
  • other companies, including companies in our industry, may not exclude these as non-GAAP financial measures or may include them but calculate them differently, which reduces their usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these and other limitations, you should consider non-GAAP financial measures only together with other financial performance measures, including various cash flow metrics, net loss and other GAAP results.

We have provided a description of these non-GAAP financial measures and a reconciliation of the Company’s historical non-GAAP financial measures to their most-directly comparable GAAP measures in the financial statement tables included in this press release, and we encourage investors to review the reconciliation.

New Accounting Standard

The Company adopted, effective January 1, 2019, ASC 842, the new accounting standard related to leases. The Company elected not to restate prior-period financial information to reflect this standard.
