Okta Announces Record Third Quarter Fiscal 2019 Financial Results


Okta, Inc. (NASDAQ: OKTA), the leading independent provider of identity for the enterprise, today announced financial results for its third fiscal quarter ended October 31, 2018.

"We had a record third quarter with 58% year-over-year growth for both revenue and billings, which was driven by increased momentum in the enterprise. We saw 55% growth in customers with over $100,000 annual recurring revenue, representing a record 100 net new adds in a quarter," said Todd McKinnon, CEO of Okta. "We are also pleased to report that we were free cash flow positive for the first time in the third quarter. Our continued strength is a testament to the growing pervasiveness of identity and we believe we are well positioned to further benefit from these tailwinds as organizations continue their move to the cloud, while digitally transforming and securing their businesses."

Third Quarter Fiscal 2019 Financial Highlights:

  • Revenue: Total revenue was $105.6 million, an increase of 58% year-over-year. Subscription revenue was $97.7 million, an increase of 58% year-over-year.
  • Operating Loss: GAAP operating loss was $28.5 million, or 27.0% of total revenue, compared to $34.5 million, or 51.6% of total revenue, in the third quarter of fiscal 2018. Non-GAAP operating loss was $6.5 million, or 6.1% of total revenue, compared to $19.4 million, or 28.9% of total revenue, in the third quarter of fiscal 2018.
  • Net Loss: GAAP net loss was $29.5 million, compared to $33.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2018. GAAP net loss per share was $0.27, compared to $0.35 in the third quarter of fiscal 2018. Non-GAAP net loss was $3.9 million, compared to $17.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2018. Non-GAAP net loss per share was $0.04, compared to $0.19 in the third quarter of fiscal 2018.
  • Cash Flow: Net cash provided by operations was $6.4 million, or 6.1% of total revenue, compared to cash used in operations of $9.5 million, or negative 14.2% of total revenue, in the third quarter of fiscal 2018. Free cash flow was positive $1.4 million, or 1.3% of total revenue, compared to negative $11.2 million, or negative 16.8% of total revenue, in the third quarter of fiscal 2018.
  • Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments were $546.0 million as of October 31, 2018.

The section titled "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below contains a description of the non-GAAP financial measures and reconciliations between historical GAAP and non-GAAP information are contained in the tables below.

Financial Outlook:

For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019, the Company currently expects:

  • Total revenue of $107 to $108 million, representing a growth rate of 39% to 40% year-over-year
  • Non-GAAP operating loss of $12.5 to $11.5 million
  • Non-GAAP net loss per share of $0.09 to $0.08, assuming shares outstanding of approximately 110 million

For the full fiscal 2019, the Company now expects:

  • Total revenue of $391 to $392 million, representing a growth rate of 52% to 53% year-over-year
  • Non-GAAP operating loss of $49 to $48 million
  • Non-GAAP net loss per share of $0.37 to $0.36, assuming shares outstanding of approximately 107 million

These statements are forward-looking and actual results may differ materially. Refer to the Forward-Looking Statements safe harbor below for information on the factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from these forward-looking statements.

Okta has not reconciled its expectations as to non-GAAP operating loss and non-GAAP net loss per share to their most directly comparable GAAP measure because certain items are out of Okta's control or cannot be reasonably predicted. Accordingly, a reconciliation for forward-looking non-GAAP operating loss and non-GAAP net loss per share is not available without unreasonable effort.

Conference Call Information:

Okta will host a conference call and live webcast for analysts and investors at 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time on December 5, 2018. The news release with the financial results will be accessible from the Company's website at investor.okta.com prior to the conference call. Interested parties can access the call by dialing (888) 256-1007 or (323) 994-2093 and using the passcode 1069664.

A live webcast of the conference call will be accessible from the Okta investor relations website at investor.okta.com. A telephonic replay of the conference call will be available through December 19, 2018 and may be accessed by dialing (888) 203-1112 or (719) 457-0820, conference ID: 1069664.

Supplemental Financial and Other Information:

Supplemental financial and other information can be accessed through the Company's investor relations website at investor.okta.com.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

This press release and the accompanying tables contain the following non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating loss, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss per share, free cash flow, current calculated billings and calculated billings. The accompanying tables present and define calculated billings consistent with ASC 606. Certain of these non-GAAP financial measures exclude stock-based compensation, amortization of debt discount, charitable contributions, and amortization of intangible assets.

Okta believes that non-GAAP financial information, when taken collectively, may be helpful to investors because it provides consistency and comparability with past financial performance and assists in comparisons with other companies, some of which use similar non-GAAP financial information to supplement their GAAP results. The non-GAAP financial information is presented for supplemental informational purposes only, and should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with GAAP, and may be different from similarly-titled non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

The principal limitation of these non-GAAP financial measures is that they exclude significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP to be recorded in the Company's financial statements. In addition, they are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of judgment by the Company's management about which expenses and income are excluded or included in determining these non-GAAP financial measures. A reconciliation is provided below for each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable financial measure stated in accordance with GAAP.

Okta encourages investors to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, which it includes in press releases announcing quarterly financial results, including this press release, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate the Company's business.

Please see the reconciliation tables at the end of this release for the reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP results.
