Second Quarter 2020 Detailed Results

Second quarter 2020 total revenue was $206.7 million, up 49% compared to the second quarter of 2019. Second quarter 2020 Mailing and Shipping revenue (which includes service, product and insurance revenue but excludes Customized Postage) was $197.9 million, up 46% compared to the second quarter of 2019. Second quarter 2020 Customized Postage revenue was $8.8 million, up 182% compared to the second quarter of 2019.

Second quarter 2020 GAAP income from operations was $61.2 million, GAAP net income was $51.7 million, and GAAP net income per share was $2.73 based on 18.9 million fully diluted shares outstanding. This compares to second quarter 2019 GAAP income from operations of $22.4 million, GAAP net income of $14.0 million, and GAAP net income per share of $0.79 based on 17.8 million fully diluted shares outstanding. Second quarter 2020 GAAP income from operations, GAAP net income, and GAAP income per fully diluted share increased by 173%, 270%, and 248% year-over-year, respectively.

Second quarter 2020 GAAP income from operations included $13.2 million of non-cash stock-based compensation expense and $5.5 million of non-cash amortization of acquired intangibles. Second quarter 2020 GAAP net income included $93 thousand of non-cash amortization of debt issuance costs. Second quarter 2020 GAAP income tax expense was $9.0 million and non-GAAP income tax expense was $20.7 million, resulting in an $11.7 million non-GAAP tax expense adjustment. The higher non-GAAP tax expense reflects the tax impact on the non-GAAP pre-tax income at a non-GAAP effective tax rate of 26% for the second quarter. See the section later in this release entitled, “About Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for more information on how non-GAAP taxes are calculated. Excluding the non-cash stock-based compensation expense and non-cash amortization of acquired intangibles, second quarter 2020 non-GAAP income from operations was $79.9 million. Also excluding non-cash amortization of debt issuance costs and including the non-GAAP tax expense adjustment, second quarter 2020 non-GAAP adjusted income was $58.8 million or $3.11 per share based on 18.9 million fully diluted shares outstanding.

Second quarter 2019 GAAP income from operations included $9.8 million of non-cash stock-based compensation expense and $5.6 million of non-cash amortization of acquired intangibles. Second quarter 2019 GAAP net income included $93 thousand of non-cash amortization of debt issuance costs. Second quarter 2019 GAAP income tax expense was $7.7 million and non-GAAP income tax expense was $14.9 million, resulting in an $7.2 million non-GAAP tax expense adjustment. The higher non-GAAP tax expense reflected the tax impact on the non-GAAP pre-tax income at a non-GAAP effective tax rate of 40.0% for the second quarter. Excluding the non-cash stock-based compensation expense and non-cash amortization of acquired intangibles, second quarter 2019 non-GAAP income from operations was $37.8 million. Also excluding non-cash amortization of debt issuance costs and including the non-GAAP tax expense adjustment, second quarter 2019 non-GAAP adjusted income was $22.3 million or $1.25 per share based on 17.8 million fully diluted shares outstanding.

Therefore, second quarter 2020 non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP adjusted income, and non-GAAP adjusted income per fully diluted share increased by 111%, 164%, and 148% year-over-year, respectively.

Non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP adjusted income, and non-GAAP adjusted income per share are described further in the “About Non-GAAP Financial Measures” section of this press release and are reconciled to the corresponding GAAP measures in the following tables (unaudited):

Second Quarter GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA

Second quarter 2020 GAAP net income was $51.7 million, up 270% compared to $14.0 million in the second quarter of 2019.

Second quarter 2020 non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was $81.0 million, up 106% compared to $39.3 million in the second quarter of 2019.

Taxes

For the second quarter of 2020, the Company reported a GAAP income tax expense of $9.0 million representing an effective tax rate of 14.8%. For the second quarter of 2019, the Company reported a GAAP income tax expense of $7.7 million representing an effective tax rate of 35.5%. As discussed below under the heading, “About Non-GAAP Financial Measures,” we believe our effective annual tax rate for 2020 will be approximately 28.0%. Accordingly, the second quarter 2020 effective rate of 14.8% should not be assumed to apply for 2020 as a whole, and our after tax income during the remainder of 2020 will likely reflect a materially higher rate than is reflected in our after tax results for the second quarter of 2020. Our second quarter 2020 GAAP net income should also be understood to have been positively impacted by the lower effective tax rate applicable specifically to the quarter.

Share Repurchase and Debt Repayment

During the second quarter of 2020, the Company repurchased approximately 56 thousand shares at a total cost of approximately $9.4 million.

On February 13, 2020, our Board of Directors approved a share repurchase plan which became effective on February 24, 2020 and which authorizes the Company to repurchase up to $40 million of stock over the six months following its effective date. On February 28, 2020, our Board of Directors adjusted the repurchase parameters of the plan in response to increased market volatility to repurchase an aggregate of approximately $19 million through the plan’s expiration in August 2020, and which became effective March 3, 2020.

On August 3, 2020, our Board of Directors approved a new share repurchase plan which will commence on August 11, 2020 and which authorizes the Company to repurchase up to $40 million of stock over approximately six months following its effective date. This new repurchase plan replaces our existing repurchase plan.

During the second quarter of 2020, as previously disclosed, the Company repaid the principal balance of $47.4 million under the Company’s existing credit agreement related to the Endicia acquisition. On June 29, 2020, the Company amended and restated this existing credit agreement for a new revolving credit facility of up to $130 million with a term of two years. As of June 30, 2020, total debt under the amended and restated credit agreement, excluding debt issuance costs, was $0 million.

Customized Postage

Effective June 16, 2020, the USPS terminated its customized postage program and thereby also revoked our authorization to offer products pursuant to that program. The primary product subject to termination was offered by the Company under the brand PhotoStamps. The revenue and cost of revenue associated with these products appear on our financial statements as “Customized postage.” The financial impact associated with the elimination of this product is reflected in our financial guidance.

Summary of our Business Outlook

For fiscal year 2020, the Company currently expects its GAAP financial outlook to be as follows:

  • We expect total revenue to be in a range of approximately $650 million to $725 million; this compares to previous guidance of $570 million to $600 million.
  • We expect GAAP net income to be in a range of approximately $79 million to $122 million; this compares to previous guidance of $41 million to $53 million.
  • We expect GAAP net income per fully diluted share to be in a range of approximately $3.93 to $6.70; this compares to previous guidance of $2.08 to $2.92.
  • We expect our 2020 effective tax rate to be approximately 28%; this compares to previous guidance of 40%.

The above GAAP amounts, adjusted as detailed below, result in the following non-GAAP financial outlook:

  • We expect non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA to be in a range of approximately $180 million to $240 million; this compares to previous guidance of $135 million to $155 million.
  • We expect non-GAAP adjusted income per fully diluted share to be in a range of approximately $6.25 to $9.25; this compares to previous guidance of $4.00 to $5.00.

Detailed Discussion of our Business Outlook

As noted above, for 2020, the Company currently expects total revenue to be in a range of approximately $650 million to $725 million; this compares to previous guidance of $570 million to $600 million.

Also, for 2020, the Company currently expects GAAP net income to be in a range of approximately $79 million to $122 million; this compares to previous guidance of $41 million to $53 million.

The expected GAAP net income range includes depreciation and amortization expense of approximately $26 million, stock-based compensation expense of approximately $43 million, interest and other expense, net of approximately $1 million, and income tax expense of approximately $31 million to $ 48 million. Excluding the depreciation and amortization expense, stock-based compensation expense, interest and other expense, net and income tax expense, we expect non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA to be in a range of approximately $180 million to $240 million; this compares to previous guidance of $135 million to $155 million.

As noted above, for 2020, the Company currently expects GAAP net income per fully diluted share to be in a range of approximately $3.93 to $6.70; this compares to previous guidance of $2.08 to $2.92. The expected GAAP net income per fully diluted share range includes non-cash stock-based compensation expense of approximately $43 million, non-cash amortization of acquired intangibles expense of approximately $22 million, and non-cash amortization of debt issuance costs of approximately $0.4 million. Excluding the stock-based compensation expense, amortization of acquired intangibles expense, and amortization of debt issuance costs, and including higher expected non-GAAP income taxes of approximately $18 million from the expected tax effects of these adjustments at an assumed 28% effective full-year tax rate, we expect non-GAAP adjusted income per fully diluted share to be in a range of $6.25 to $9.25; this compares to previous guidance of $4.00 to $5.00.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheets and consolidated statements of income presented in accordance with GAAP, the Company uses non-GAAP measures of certain components of financial performance. These non-GAAP measures include non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP adjusted income, non-GAAP adjusted income per fully diluted share and adjusted EBITDA.

Non-GAAP financial measures are provided to enhance investors’ overall understanding of the Company’s financial performance and prospects for the future and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. The Company believes the non-GAAP measures, which: (1) exclude certain non-cash items including stock-based compensation expense, amortization of acquired intangibles, amortization of debt issuance costs, and contingent consideration charges; (2) exclude certain expenses and gains such as acquisition related expenses, litigation settlement expenses, executive consulting expenses, and insurance proceeds; and (3) include income tax adjustments, provide meaningful supplemental information regarding financial performance by excluding certain expenses and benefits that may not be reflective of our underlying operating performance.

Non-GAAP adjusted income is calculated as GAAP net income plus the cumulative impact of the adjustments outlined in the paragraph immediately above.

Non-GAAP adjusted income per fully diluted share is calculated as non-GAAP adjusted income divided by fully diluted shares.

Non-GAAP income tax expense for the first, second and third quarters of our fiscal year are calculated by multiplying the projected annual effective tax rate in that quarter by the non-GAAP adjusted income before taxes for the quarter. Among other things, the projected annual effective tax rate does not reflect potential future employee option exercises in the remaining quarters of the fiscal year due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting employee option exercises. The projected annual effective tax rate also considers other factors including the Company’s tax structure and its tax positions in various jurisdictions where the Company operates. The actual annual effective tax rate realized for the fiscal year could differ materially from our projected annual effective tax rate used in the first, second and third quarters.

Non-GAAP income tax expense for the fourth quarter of the fiscal year is calculated by multiplying the actual effective tax rate for the fiscal year by the non-GAAP adjusted income before taxes for the fiscal year and subtracting the non-GAAP income tax expense or benefit reported in the first, second and third quarters. As a result, the fourth quarter reflects the tax impact of reconciling the first, second and third quarter projected annual effective rates to the actual effective tax rate for the fiscal year.

The projected non-GAAP full-year tax rate for 2020 is 28.0%. The decrease in our estimated effective tax rate for 2020 was primarily driven by an increase in projected pre-tax book income and employee stock option exercises.

Adjusted EBITDA as calculated in this press release represents earnings before interest and other expense, net, interest and other income, net, income tax expense or benefit, depreciation and amortization and excludes certain items, such as stock-based compensation expense.

The presentation of non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures may differ from similarly titled measures used by other companies. Reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures included in this press release to the corresponding GAAP measures can be found in the financial tables of this press release.

The Company believes that non-GAAP financial measures, when viewed with GAAP results and the accompanying reconciliation, enhance the comparability of operating results against prior periods and allow for greater transparency of operating results. Management uses non-GAAP financial measures in making financial, operating, compensation and planning decisions. The Company believes non-GAAP financial measures facilitate management and investors in comparing the Company’s financial performance to that of prior periods as well as in performing trend analysis over time.

Share Repurchase Timing

The timing of share repurchases, if any, and the number of shares to be bought at any one time will depend on factors including market conditions and the Company’s compliance with the covenants in its Amended and Restated Credit Agreement. Share repurchases may be made from time to time on the open market or in negotiated transactions at the Company's discretion in compliance with Rule 10b-18 of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company's purchase of any of its shares may be subject to limitations imposed on such purchases by applicable securities laws and regulations and the rules of the Nasdaq Stock Market.

Important factors which could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements, include (i) the Company’s ability to monetize its customers’ transactions with carriers, including uncertainties regarding the duration, renegotiation and ultimate impact of existing and potential future arrangements with carriers and partners and our success in implementing our strategy over the long term, (ii) the significant and unprecedented uncertainty regarding the business and economic impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic (as well as the impact of efforts of governments, businesses and individuals to mitigate the effects of such pandemic) on the Company, its customers, its carrier and integration partners and the global economy, which makes it particularly difficult to predict the nature and extent of impacts on demand for our products and services, making our business outlook subject to considerable uncertainty, (iii) the Company's ability to successfully integrate and realize the benefits of its past or future strategic acquisitions or investments, (iv) the Company’s ability to diversify its relationships with carriers, (v) the impact of foreign exchange fluctuations and geopolitical risks, and (vi) other important factors that are detailed in filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission made from time to time by Stamps.com, including its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q (particularly the “Risk Factors” sections of those reports), and Current Reports on Form 8-K. Matters described in forward-looking statements may also be affected by other known and unknown risks, trends, uncertainties and factors, many of which are beyond the Company’s ability to control or predict. Copies of these filings may be obtained by visiting our investors relations website at www.stamps.com or the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov. Stamps.com undertakes no obligation to release publicly any revisions to any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date hereof or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.
