Business Outlook
Based on information available as of May 10, 2018, HubSpot is issuing guidance for the second quarter of 2018 and raising guidance for full year 2018 as indicated below.

Second Quarter 2018:

  • Total revenue is expected to be in the range of $117 million to $118 million.
  • Non-GAAP operating income is expected to be in the range of $5.3 million to $6.3 million. This excludes stock-based compensation expense of approximately $19.6 million, amortization of acquired intangible assets of approximately $50 thousand, and acquisition related expenses of approximately $800 thousand.
  • Non-GAAP net income per common share is expected to be in the range of $0.14 to $0.16.  This excludes stock-based compensation expense of approximately $19.6 million, amortization of acquired intangible assets of approximately $50 thousand, acquisition related expenses of approximately $800 thousand, and non-cash interest expense for the amortization of debt discount and debt issuance costs of approximately $5.1 million.  This assumes approximately 41.5 million weighted average diluted shares outstanding.

Full Year 2018:

  • Total revenue is expected to be in the range of $489 million to $492 million, up from our previously guided range of $481 million to $485 million.
  • Non-GAAP operating income is expected to in be in the range of $22 million to $25 million, up from our previously guided range of $20 million to $24 million. This excludes stock-based compensation expense of approximately $76 million, amortization of acquired intangible assets of approximately $200 thousand, and acquisition related expenses of approximately $2.7 million.
  • Non-GAAP net income per common share is expected to be in the range of $0.59 to $0.65, up from our previously guided range of $0.51 to $0.59. This excludes stock-based compensation expense of approximately $76 million, amortization of acquired intangible assets of approximately $200 thousand, acquisition related expenses of approximately $2.7 million, and non-cash interest expense for the amortization of debt discount and debt issuance costs of approximately $20.3 million. This assumes approximately 42.3 million weighted average diluted shares outstanding.

HubSpot's estimates of stock-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangible assets, and acquisition-related expenses in future periods assume, among other things, the occurrence of no additional acquisitions, investments or restructurings, and no further revisions to stock-based compensation and related expenses.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We report our financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, or GAAP. However, management believes that, in order to properly understand our short-term and long-term financial and operational trends, investors may wish to consider the impact of certain non-cash or non-recurring items when used as a supplement to financial performance measures in accordance with GAAP. These items result from facts and circumstances that vary in frequency and impact on continuing operations. In this release, HubSpot's non-GAAP operating income (loss), operating margin, subscription margin, expense, expense as a percentage of revenue, net income (loss), and free cash flow are not presented in accordance with GAAP and are not intended to be used in lieu of GAAP presentations of results of operations.

Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide additional means of evaluating period-over-period operating performance. Specifically, these non-GAAP financial measures provide management with additional means to understand and evaluate the operating results and trends in our ongoing business by eliminating certain non-cash expenses and other items that management believes might otherwise make comparisons of our ongoing business with prior periods more difficult, obscure trends in ongoing operations, or reduce management's ability to make useful forecasts. In addition, management understands that some investors and financial analysts find this information helpful in analyzing our financial and operational performance and comparing this performance to our peers and competitors. However, these non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool and are not intended to be an alternative to financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, it should be noted that these non-GAAP financial measures may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. We intend to provide these non-GAAP financial measures as part of our future earnings discussions and, therefore, the inclusion of these non-GAAP financial measures will provide consistency in our financial reporting. Management may, however, utilize other measures to illustrate performance in the future. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. A reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures has been provided in the financial statement tables included above in this press release.

These non-GAAP measures exclude share-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquisition related expenses, and non-cash interest expense for the amortization of debt discount and debt issuance costs. We believe investors may want to exclude the effects of these items in order to compare our financial performance with that of other companies and between time periods:     

A. Stock-based compensation is a non-cash expense accounted for in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718. We believe that the exclusion of stock-based compensation expense allows for financial results that are more indicative of our operational performance and provide for a useful comparison of our operating results to prior periods and to our peer companies because 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.

B. Expense for the amortization of acquired intangible assets is a non-cash item, and we believe that the exclusion of this amortization expense provides for a useful comparison of our operating results to prior periods and to our peer companies.

C. Acquisition related expenses, such as transaction costs and retention payments, are expenses that are not necessarily reflective of operational performance during a period. We believe that the exclusion of this these expenses provides for a useful comparison of our operating results to prior periods and to our peer companies.

D. In May 2017, the Company issued $400 million of convertible notes due in 2022 with a coupon interest rate of 0.25%. The imputed interest rate of the convertible senior notes was approximately 6.95%. This is a result of the debt discount recorded for the conversion feature that is required to be separately accounted for as equity, and debt issuance costs, which reduce the carrying value of the convertible debt instrument. The debt discount is amortized as interest expense together with the issuance costs of the debt. The expense for the amortization of debt discount and debt issuance costs is a non-cash item, and we believe the exclusion of this interest expense provides for a useful comparison of our operating results to prior periods and to our peer companies.
