E2open Announces Third Quarter of Fiscal Year 2013 results

E2open, Inc. (NASDAQ: EOPN), a leading provider of strategic, cloud-based software solutions for collaborative execution across global trading networks, today announced financial results for the quarter ended November 30, 2012.

“E2open continued to execute at a high level during our third fiscal quarter, which contributed to financial results that were above the high-end of our guidance,” said Mark Woodward, E2open’s President and CEO. “E2open continues to transform supply chain management with our comprehensive cloud-based platform, allowing enterprises across a number of verticals to collaborate more effectively with their partners around the world. The resulting improvement in visibility, efficiency, and productivity continues to deliver a significant ROI for our clients and is fueling E2open’s business momentum.”

Mr. Woodward added, “We are increasing our fiscal 2013 bookings growth guidance to 30% to 35% based on the strength of our third quarter performance, combined with a healthy pipeline of opportunities. This is greater than our expected fiscal 2013 revenue growth and represents an acceleration from our fiscal 2012 bookings growth of 28%. We remain very optimistic about E2open’s long-term growth opportunity and market position.”

Guidance:

As of January 2, 2013, E2open is providing guidance for its fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 as well as the full fiscal year 2013.

  • Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2013 Guidance: Total GAAP revenue is expected to be in the range of $18.9 million to $19.3 million. Non-GAAP revenue is expected to be in the range of $19.4 million to $19.8 million, which includes a $0.5 million impact to revenue, due to the aforementioned acceleration of revenue in the second quarter of fiscal 2013 in connection with a contract amendment. Non-GAAP income (loss) from operations is expected to be in the range of ($1.4) million to ($0.9) million. Non-GAAP income (loss) per share is expected to be in the range of ($0.06) to ($0.04) based on approximately 27.2 million weighted-average shares outstanding. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of ($1.0) million to ($0.5) million.
  • Full Year Fiscal 2013 Guidance: Total GAAP revenue is expected to be in the range of $76.3 million to $76.7 million, including $3.6 million of revenue accelerated from future periods into the second quarter of fiscal 2013 associated with a contract amendment. Excluding the aforementioned contract amendment (a nonrecurring item), total non-GAAP revenue is expected to be in the range of $72.7 million to $73.1 million. The following non-GAAP guidance excludes the revenue accelerated from future periods due to the contract amendment. Non-GAAP income (loss) from operations is expected to be in the range of ($1.3) million to ($0.8) million. Non-GAAP loss per share is expected to be in the range of ($0.08) to ($0.06) based on approximately 25.3 million weighted-average shares outstanding. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $0.3 million to $0.8 million. Free cash flow is expected to be in the range of ($4.2) million to ($3.1) million. Bookings are expected to be in the range of $94.0 million to $98.0 million, representing growth of approximately 30% to 35% compared to fiscal 2012.

With respect to the Company’s expectations under “Guidance” above, the Company has not reconciled non-GAAP loss from operations or non-GAAP loss per share to GAAP loss from operations and GAAP loss per share because these items are out of the Company’s control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted.

“Safe harbor” statement under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995

This press release contains forward-looking statements about expected GAAP revenue, non-GAAP revenue, non-GAAP income (loss) from operations, non-GAAP income (loss) per share, and Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 and the full fiscal year, and free cash flow and bookings for the full fiscal year. The achievement or success of the matters covered by such forward-looking statements involves risks, uncertainties and assumptions. If any such risks or uncertainties materialize or if any of the assumptions prove incorrect, the company’s results could differ materially from the results expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements we make.

The risks and uncertainties referred to above include, but are not limited to, risks associated with the company’s growth strategy; the company’s plans for future products; the company’s operating results; the company’s ability to anticipate future market demands and future needs of its customers; the company’s customer concentration; the company’s ability to effectively manage its growth; the company’s expectations regarding its use of proceeds from its initial public offering; the company’s expectations regarding expenses, sales and operations; anticipated trends and challenges in the markets in which the company operates; the company’s competition; the company’s ability to successfully enter new markets and manage its international expansion; and the company’s intellectual property.

Further information on these and other factors that could affect the company’s financial results is included in the filings made with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the company’s Form 10-Q that will be filed for the third quarter ended November 30, 2012. These documents are available on the SEC Filings section of the Investor Relations section of the company’s website at: investor.e2open.com.

E2open, Inc. assumes no obligation and does not intend to update these forward-looking statements, except as required by law.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Our reported results include certain non-GAAP financial measures, including bookings, non-GAAP revenue, non-GAAP operating income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss), weighted average shares outstanding, non-GAAP net income (loss) per share, adjusted EBITDA, and free cash flow. Bookings represent the full value of customer orders or contracts signed during a reporting period. Non-GAAP operating income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) exclude expenses related to stock-based compensation expense and noncash income taxes as they are often excluded by other companies to help investors understand the operational performance of their business and, in the case of stock-based compensation, can be difficult to predict. In addition, stock-based compensation expense varies from period to period and company to company due to such things as differing valuation methodologies and changes in stock price. Non-GAAP revenue, non-GAAP operating income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) also exclude the impact of certain accelerated revenue recognized in connection with a contract amendment in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss), adjusted for accelerated revenue from a contract amendment, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, interest and other expense, net, and provision for income taxes. Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities less capital expenditures, which consist of purchases of property, equipment and software. Reconciliation tables are provided in this press release. Management believes that the use of non-GAAP financial measures provides consistency and comparability with our past financial performance, facilitates period to period comparisons of results of operations, and also facilitates comparisons with other peer companies, many of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results. Non-GAAP results are presented for supplemental informational purposes only for understanding our operating results. The non-GAAP results should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.

This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices – computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors – connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo in Silicon Valley. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be!
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
