AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Q2 Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:QTWO), a leading provider of digital transformation solutions for banking and lending, today announced results for its first quarter ending March 31, 2021.

GAAP Results for the First Quarter 2021

  • Revenue for the first quarter of $116.5 million, up 26 percent year-over-year and up 7 percent from the fourth quarter of 2020.
  • GAAP gross margin for the first quarter of 45.7 percent, up from 42.5 percent for the prior-year quarter and 40.8 percent for the fourth quarter of 2020.
  • GAAP net loss for the first quarter of $25.7 million, compared to GAAP net losses of $34.1 million for the prior-year quarter and $37.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2020.

Non- GAAP Results for the First Quarter 2021

  • Non-GAAP revenue for the first quarter of $117.0 million, up 25 percent year-over-year and up 7 percent from the fourth quarter of 2020.
  • Non-GAAP gross margin for the first quarter of 52.6 percent, down from 53.1 percent for the prior-year quarter and up from 48.3 percent for the fourth quarter of 2020.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of $9.9 million, up from negative $0.1 million for the prior-year quarter and $6.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2020.

For a reconciliation of our GAAP to non-GAAP results, please see the tables below.

“The first quarter was a strong start to 2021, with key developments across the business,” said Matt Flake, Q2 CEO. “We had broad-based sales success, with particular momentum in the Enterprise and Tier 1 segments. We demonstrated strong operational execution, highlighted by our banking-as-a-service team supporting the debit card launch of a top 10 fintech client. I’m encouraged by our momentum, and with our growing pipeline, improvements in the macroeconomic environment, and newly expanded product portfolio—including our acquisition of ClickSWITCH—I believe we’re in a great position to continue executing against our strategy for the remainder of 2021 and beyond.”

First Quarter Highlights

  • Signed a Tier 1 $8 billion bank to a digital banking contract for our retail, small business and commercial solutions.
  • Signed two Tier 1 customers, including a $10 billion bank, to digital acquisition and onboarding contracts.
  • Signed two enterprise customers, a top-25 and top-50 bank in the United States to loan pricing contracts.
  • Exited the first quarter with over 18.3 million registered users on the Q2 Platform, representing 19 percent year-over-year growth and 3 percent sequential growth from the fourth quarter of 2020.

“Our first quarter results reflect strong execution in the period, delivering financial results which exceeded the high end of our revenue and adjusted EBITDA guidance,” said David Mehok, Q2 CFO. “The revenue and adjusted EBITDA achievement was driven primarily by new customer go-lives and organic user growth in the quarter. We are raising our full year revenue guidance and revising our adjusted EBITDA guidance to reflect our current views on our business outlook for the remainder of 2021 and the impact of the ClickSWITCH acquisition, which closed on April 1st.”

Financial outlook

As of May 5, 2021, Q2 Holdings is providing guidance for its second quarter of 2021 and revised guidance for its full-year 2021. The financial information below represents forward-looking, non-GAAP financial information, including estimates of non-GAAP revenue and adjusted EBITDA. GAAP net loss is the most comparable GAAP measure to adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA differs from GAAP net loss in that it excludes items such as depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, acquisition-related costs, interest, income taxes, unoccupied lease charges, partnership termination charges, loss on extinguishment of debt and the impact to deferred revenue from purchase accounting. Q2 Holdings is unable to predict with reasonable certainty the ultimate outcome of these exclusions without unreasonable effort. Therefore, Q2 Holdings has not provided guidance for GAAP net loss or a reconciliation of the foregoing forward-looking adjusted EBITDA guidance to GAAP net loss. However, it is important to note that these excluded items could be material to our results computed in accordance with GAAP in future periods.

Q2 Holdings is providing guidance for its second quarter of 2021 as follows:

  • Total non-GAAP revenue of $122.0 million to $123.5 million, which would represent year-over-year growth of 23 percent to 25 percent.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $8.5 million to $9.1 million.

Q2 Holdings is providing updated guidance for the full-year 2021 as follows:

  • Total non-GAAP revenue of $495.0 million to $498.0 million, which would represent year-over-year growth of 22 percent.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $32.0 million to $34.0 million, representing 6 percent to 7 percent of non-GAAP revenue for the year.
  • For the full-year guidance, we expect estimated revenue contribution from ClickSWITCH of low-to-mid- single-digit millions and an adjusted EBITDA loss of low-to-mid- single-digit millions, in both cases recognized ratably over the next three quarters.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

Q2 uses the following non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP revenue; adjusted EBITDA; non-GAAP gross margin; non-GAAP gross profit; non-GAAP sales and marketing expense; non-GAAP research and development expense; non-GAAP general and administrative expense; non-GAAP operating expense; non-GAAP operating income (loss); non-GAAP net income; non-GAAP net income per share; and pro forma weighted-average diluted number of common shares outstanding. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful measures of operating performance because they exclude items that Q2 does not consider indicative of its core performance.

In the case of non-GAAP revenue, Q2 adjusts revenue to exclude the impact to deferred revenue from purchase accounting adjustments. In the case of adjusted EBITDA, Q2 adjusts net loss for such items as interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, acquisition-related costs, unoccupied lease charges, partnership termination charges, loss on extinguishment of debt, and the impact to deferred revenue from purchase accounting. In the case of non-GAAP gross margin and non-GAAP gross profit, Q2 adjusts gross profit and gross margin for stock-based compensation amortization of acquired technology, acquisition-related costs and the impact to deferred revenue from purchase accounting. In the case of non-GAAP sales and marketing expense, non-GAAP research and development expense, and non-GAAP general and administrative expense, Q2 adjusts the corresponding GAAP expense to exclude stock-based compensation. Non-GAAP Operating Expense is calculated by taking the sum of non-GAAP sales and marketing expenses, non-GAAP research and development expense and non-GAAP general and administrative expense. In the case of non-GAAP operating income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss), and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share, Q2 adjusts operating loss and net loss, respectively, for stock-based compensation, acquisition-related costs, amortization of acquired technology, amortization of acquired intangibles, unoccupied lease charges, partnership termination charges, and the impact to deferred revenue from purchase accounting, and with respect to non-GAAP net income, amortization of debt discount and issuance costs and loss on extinguishment of debt. In the case of pro forma diluted weighted-average number of common shares outstanding, Q2 adjusts GAAP diluted weighted-average number of common shares outstanding by the weighted-average effect of potentially dilutive shares which include (i) employee equity incentive plans, excluding the impact of unrecognized stock-based compensation expense and (ii) convertible senior notes outstanding and related warrants including the anti-dilutive impact of the Company’s note hedge and capped call agreements on convertible senior notes outstanding.

There are limitations associated with the use of these non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, do not reflect a comprehensive system of accounting and may not be completely comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies due to potential differences in the exact method of calculation between companies. Certain items that are excluded from these non-GAAP financial measures can have a material impact on operating and net income (loss). As a result, these non-GAAP financial measures have limitations and should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or superior to, the closest GAAP measures, or other financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation to the closest GAAP measures of these non-GAAP measures is contained in tabular form on the attached unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.

Q2’s management uses these non-GAAP measures as measures of operating performance; to prepare Q2’s annual operating budget; to allocate resources to enhance the financial performance of Q2’s business; to evaluate the effectiveness of Q2’s business strategies; to provide consistency and comparability with past financial performance; to facilitate a comparison of Q2’s results with those of other companies, many of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results; and in communication with our board of directors concerning Q2’s financial performance.

Additional information relating to the uncertainty affecting the Q2 business is contained in Q2’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. These documents are available on the SEC Filings section of the Investor Relations section of Q2’s website at http://investors.Q2.com/. These forward-looking statements represent Q2’s expectations as of the date of this press release. Subsequent events may cause these expectations to change, and Q2 disclaims any obligations to update or alter these forward-looking statements in the future, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
