CAMPBELL, Calif., Sept. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Barracuda Networks, Inc. (NYSE: CUDA), a leading provider of cloud-connected security and storage solutions, today announced results for its second quarter of fiscal 2016, which ended August 31, 2015.
Billings & Revenue: For the second quarter of fiscal 2016, gross billings grew to $98.4 million, up from $89.0 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2015. Total revenue increased 14% to $78.4 million, up from $68.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2015. Appliance revenue in the second quarter of fiscal 2016 grew to$22.3 million, up from $20.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2015, and recurring subscription revenue grew to $56.1 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2016, up from $48.0 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2015, representing 72% of total revenue.
Net Income: GAAP net loss in the second quarter of fiscal 2016 was $2.2 million, or $0.04 loss per share, based on a basic share count of 53.3 million. Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 was$5.6 million, or $0.10 per share, based on a diluted share count of 54.9 million. Non-GAAP net income excludes $7.2 million in stock-based compensation expense, $0.6 million in acquisition and other non-recurring charges, $0.6 million in amortization of intangibles, $0.4 million in income tax benefits of non-GAAP exclusions, and $0.2 million in other income. The reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP information is contained in the tables below.
“We now have more than 261,000 active subscribers and this quarter’s dollar-based renewal rates were 95.1%. In the second quarter, gross billings grew to $98.4 million, up 4% sequentially and up 14% year-over-year in constant currency. The currency environment and longer sales cycles which we experienced in EMEA in Q2 impacted our gross billing performance this quarter. Our storage category billings grew in the mid-twenty percent range year-over-year on a constant currency basis in Q2. However, we do see some evidence that growth in the overall storage market has slowed and that customer requirements are evolving, and we are adjusting our approach accordingly,” said BJ Jenkins, President and CEO.
“Further, we are excited about our pending acquisition of Intronis because it will significantly expand our presence with managed service providers, and enables Barracuda to reach more of the market, by offering storage and security solutions the way customers want to consume them.”
“During the quarter, we achieved 14% year-over-year growth in revenue and delivered better than expected bottom-line results by executing on our business model,” said David Faugno, CFO. “In the quarter, non-GAAP operating income grew 22% year-over-year to $8.1 million, representing 10.3% of total revenue.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Barracuda provides all financial information required in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, we are also providing with this press release non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP operating income, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted free cash flow. In preparing our non-GAAP information, we have excluded certain amounts as set forth in the attached financial tables and footnotes. We believe that excluding these items provides both management and investors with additional insight into our current operations and the trends affecting the company. In particular, management finds it useful to exclude these items in order to more readily correlate the company’s operating activities with the company’s ability to generate cash from operations. Accordingly, management uses these non-GAAP measures, along with the comparable GAAP information, in evaluating our historical performance and in planning our future business activities. Please note that our non-GAAP measures may be different than those used by other companies. The additional non-GAAP financial information we present should be considered in conjunction with, and not as a substitute for, our financial information presented in accordance with GAAP. We have provided a non-GAAP reconciliation of the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations for the periods presented in this release, which exclude certain amounts as set forth in the attached financial tables and footnotes for these periods. These measures should only be used to evaluate the company’s results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures for comparable financial information and understanding of the company’s ongoing performance as a business. Barracuda uses both GAAP and non-GAAP measures to evaluate and manage its operations.
