Company delivers Revenue growth of 44% Year over Year
Subscription and Services Revenue grows 43% Year over Year
Payments Revenue grows 51% Year over Year

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif., May 3, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – MINDBODY, Inc. (NASDAQ:MB), the leading provider of cloud-based business management software for the wellness services industry and an emerging consumer marketplace, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016.

“We had an excellent start to the year marked by accelerating revenue growth and record gross margins,” said Rick Stollmeyer, co-founder and chief executive officer of MINDBODY. “These results demonstrate the ongoing success of all four components of our recurring revenue growth model, including new subscriber additions, our multi-tier subscriber pricing strategy, and our rapidly growing payments and technology partner revenue streams. Looking to the rest of the year, we expect to continue executing our growth strategy and leveraging the network effects rapidly taking hold in our business.”

“MINDBODY had a great first quarter, highlighted by 44% total revenue growth and strong margin improvements,” said Brett White, chief financial officer of MINDBODY. “Given our excellent performance across the business, we are pleased to announce that we are increasing our annual guidance.”

First Quarter 2016 Financial Results

  • Total revenue in the first quarter of 2016 was $32.0 million, a 44% increase year over year. Subscription and services revenue in the quarter was $19.3 million, a 43% increase year over year.
  • Payments revenue in the first quarter was $12.2 million, a 51% increase year over year.
  • Recurring revenue increased 46% year over year.  Recurring revenue is the sum of MINDBODY’s subscription and services revenue, and payments revenue. Recurring revenue comprised 98% of total revenue in the first quarter of 2016, up from 96% in the first quarter of 2015.  
  • GAAP net loss attributable to common stockholders in the first quarter of 2016 was $(6.6) million, or $(0.17) per basic and diluted share, compared to a GAAP net loss attributable to common stockholders in the first quarter of 2015 of $(11.6) million, or ($1.03) per basic and diluted share. 
  • Non-GAAP net loss1 in the first quarter of 2016 was $(4.7) million, or $(0.12) per basic and diluted share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss in the first quarter of 2015 of $(6.7) million, or $(0.21) per basic and diluted share.
  • Adjusted EBITDA loss1 in the first quarter of 2016 was $(2.4) million, compared to an Adjusted EBITDA loss in the first quarter of 2015 of $(5.3) million.

Recent Business Highlights

  • End of period subscribers grew 26% year over year to 53,603.
  • Average monthly revenue per subscriber (ARPS) grew 16% year over year to approximately $201.
  • Dollar-based net expansion rate was 113% as of the end of the first quarter of 2016, up from 109% from one year ago. This metric nets the effects of subscriber churn against the increasing value of subscribers retained indicating the consistent increase in value of MINDBODY’s subscriber cohorts over time.

  • Included in Inc. Magazine's second annual Founders 40 list, which recognizes companies that have gone public in the past 36 months with annual revenue between $50 million and $2 billion, and that have continued to maintain an entrepreneurial spirit and drive innovation, while having at least one of the original founders at the helm.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this press release and the related conference call, MINDBODY has provided financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP). We disclose the following non-GAAP financial measures in this press release: Adjusted EBITDA, recurring revenue, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP weighted average shares outstanding, and non-GAAP net loss per share attributable to common stockholders, basic and diluted. We use these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing our financial results and evaluating our ongoing operational performance. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide an additional tool for investors to use in understanding and evaluating ongoing operating results and trends in the same manner as our management and board of directors.  Our use of these non-GAAP financial measures has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our financial results as reported under GAAP.  Because of these and other limitations, you should consider these non-GAAP financial measures along with other GAAP-based financial performance measures, including various cash flow metrics, net loss, and our GAAP financial results. We have provided a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures in the financial statement tables included in this press release, and investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation.

Adjusted EBITDA

We define Adjusted EBITDA as our net loss before stock-based compensation expense, depreciation and amortization, change in fair value of contingent consideration, change in fair value of preferred stock warrant, impairment charges, provision for income taxes, and other income (expense), net, which consisted of interest income and expense, and other miscellaneous other income (expense). We have provided below a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.  We have presented Adjusted EBITDA in this press release because it is a key measure used by our management and board of directors to understand and evaluate our core operating performance and trends, to prepare and approve our annual budget, and to develop short and long-term operational plans. In particular, we believe that the exclusion of the amounts eliminated in calculating Adjusted EBITDA can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of our core business. Adjusted EBITDA has a number of limitations, including the following: (1) although depreciation and amortization expense are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect cash capital expenditure requirements for such replacements or for new capital expenditure requirements; (2) Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs, the potentially dilutive impact of stock-based compensation, or tax payments that may represent a reduction in cash available to us; (3) Adjusted EBITDA excludes stock-based compensation expense, which has been and will continue to be for the foreseeable future a significant recurring expense in MINDBODY’s business; and (4) other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate Adjusted EBITDA or similarly titled measures differently, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Recurring revenue, Non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP weighted average shares outstanding and non-GAAP net loss per share

We define recurring revenue as the sum of subscription and services revenue and payments revenue. We define non-GAAP net loss as the respective GAAP balance adjusted for: (1) stock-based compensation expense, (2) accretion of redeemable convertible preferred stock, and (3) deemed dividend – preferred stock modification. Non-GAAP net loss per share is calculated as non-GAAP net loss divided by the non-GAAP weighted-average shares outstanding that are adjusted to assume the conversion of outstanding redeemable convertible preferred stock into common stock as of the beginning of the period.  These non-GAAP financial measures have a number of limitations, including the following: (1) these non-GAAP financial measures exclude stock-based compensation expense, which has been and will continue to be for the foreseeable future a significant recurring expense in MINDBODY’s business; and (2) other companies, including companies in our industry, may exclude different non-recurring items in their calculation of these non-GAAP financial measures, which reduces their usefulness as a comparative measure.
