Vistaprint Q2 Net Income Drops; Lowers GuidanceFebruary 1, 2013
Fiscal 2013 Outlook as of January 31, 2013:
Ernst Teunissen, executive vice president and chief financial officer, said, “Looking ahead to the second half of the fiscal year, we expect to continue to benefit from solid execution in North America and strong manufacturing results around the world. We continue to believe that our European marketing execution turn-around will take time, and our revenue weakness there will persist through at least the remainder of fiscal 2013. Given our continuing challenges in Europe, we expect that the shift from a strong seasonal consumer focus in our second fiscal quarter to small-business-oriented campaigns for the second half of the fiscal year will be more difficult than it has been in past years. Despite continued revenue weakness, we remain confident in our earnings per share outlook for the remainder of the year. Our guidance today reflects these factors. We are lowering and narrowing our revenue guidance range for the fiscal year, but narrowing our earnings per share guidance range to the upper part of the prior guidance range due to our strong earnings performance through the first half of the year.”
Financial Guidance as of January 31, 2013:
As previously stated, beginning with fiscal year 2013, the company is providing revenue guidance on an annual and quarterly basis, and earnings guidance on an annual basis. Based on current and anticipated levels of demand, the company expects the following financial results:
Fiscal Year and Third Quarter 2013 Revenue
- For the full fiscal year ending June 30, 2013, the company expects revenue of approximately $1,145 million to $1,175 million, or 12 percent to 15 percent growth year over year in reported terms. Excluding currency movements and acquired revenue, we expect constant-currency organic growth of approximately 10 percent to 13 percent. Reported (USD) growth expectations assume a recent 30-day currency exchange rate for all currencies. Constant-currency growth is estimated by applying the respective prior year quarterly average exchange rates to all estimated non-U.S. dollar denominated revenue expected for future periods.
- For the third quarter of fiscal year 2013, ending March 31, 2013, the company expects revenue of approximately $275 million to $290 million, or 7 percent to 13 percent growth year over year in reported terms. We expect constant-currency organic growth of approximately 5 percent to 11 percent.
Fiscal Year 2013 GAAP Net Income Per Diluted Share
- For the full fiscal year ending June 30, 2013, the company expects GAAP net income per diluted share of approximately $0.50 to $0.70, which assumes 34.6 million weighted average diluted shares outstanding.
Fiscal Year 2013 Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income Per Diluted Share
- For the full fiscal year ending June 30, 2013, the company expects non-GAAP adjusted net income per diluted share of approximately $1.79 to $1.99, which excludes expected acquisition-related amortization of intangible assets of approximately $8.4 million or approximately $0.24 per diluted share, share-based compensation expense and its related tax effect of approximately $34.6 million or approximately $0.98 per diluted share, and tax charges related to the alignment of acquisition-related intellectual property with global operations of approximately $2.4 million, or $0.07 per diluted share. This guidance assumes a non-GAAP weighted average diluted share count of approximately 35.2 million shares.
Fiscal Year 2013 Capital Expenditures
For the full fiscal year ending June 30, 2013, the company expects to make capital expenditures of approximately $85 million to $95 million. Planned capital investments are designed to support the planned growth of the business and are expected to include the expansion of our European production capacity in our Dutch (Venlo) facility and other investments.
The foregoing guidance supersedes any guidance previously issued by the company. All such previous guidance should no longer be relied upon.
About non-GAAP financial measures
To supplement Vistaprint’s consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, Vistaprint has used the following measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, rules: non-GAAP adjusted net income, non-GAAP adjusted net income per diluted share, free cash flow, constant-currency revenue growth, and constant-currency organic revenue growth. The items excluded from the non-GAAP adjusted net income measurements are share-based compensation expense and its related tax effect, amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, and tax charges related to the alignment of acquisition-related intellectual property with global operations. Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities less purchases of property, plant and equipment, purchases of intangible assets not related to acquisitions, and capitalization of software and website development costs. Constant-currency revenue growth is estimated by translating all non-U.S. dollar denominated revenue generated in the current period using the prior year period’s average exchange rate for each currency to the U.S. dollar and excludes the impact of gains and losses on effective foreign currency hedges recognized in revenue. Constant-currency organic revenue growth excludes the impact of currency as defined above and revenue from acquired companies.
The presentation of non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the tables captioned “Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” included at the end of this release. The tables have more details on the GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures and the related reconciliation between these financial measures.
Vistaprint’s management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information in assessing our performance and when forecasting and analyzing future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also have facilitated management’s internal comparisons to Vistaprint’s historical performance and our competitors’ operating results.
Management provides these non-GAAP financial measures as a courtesy to investors. However, to gain a more complete understanding of the company’s financial performance, management does (and investors should) rely upon GAAP statements of operations and cash flow.
