NEW YORK, June 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- MongoDB, Inc. (NASDAQ: MDB), the leading modern, general purpose database platform, today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended April 30, 2018.

MongoDB

"MongoDB began fiscal 2019 with strong financial and operational results highlighted by 53% subscription revenue growth," said Dev Ittycheria, President and Chief Executive Officer of MongoDB. "We were particularly pleased with the continued growth of our international business and the increasing breadth of use cases being built on the MongoDB platform."

Ittycheria added, "MongoDB Atlas, our fully-managed cloud database service, delivered another impressive quarter, growing to 14% of our revenue in less than two years. The increasing number of MongoDB Atlas wins with customers of all sizes around the world demonstrates the power of MongoDB delivered via an elastic, globally available, and high performance database-as-a-service offering."

First Quarter Fiscal 2019 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue: Total revenue was $48.2 million, an increase of 49% year-over-year. Subscription revenue was $44.6 million, an increase of 53% year-over-year, and services revenue was $3.7 million, an increase of 14% year-over-year.
  • Gross Profit: Gross profit was $34.5 million, representing a 71.5% gross margin, consistent with the year-ago period. Non-GAAP gross profit was $35.0 million, representing a 72.6% non-GAAP gross margin.
  • Loss from Operations: Loss from operations was $29.3 million, compared to $19.8 million in the year-ago period. Non-GAAP loss from operations was $21.7 million, compared to $15.3 million in the year-ago period.
  • Net Loss: Net loss was $29.2 million, or $0.58 per share based on 50.4 million weighted-average shares outstanding. This compares to $19.7 million, or $1.50 per share based on 13.2 million weighted-average shares outstanding, in the year-ago period. Non-GAAP net loss was $21.6 million, or $0.43 per share based on 50.4 million weighted-average shares outstanding. This compares to $15.3 million, or $0.38 per share based on 40.1 million non-GAAP weighted-average shares outstanding, in the year-ago period.
  • Cash Flow: As of April 30, 2018, MongoDB had $271.5 million in cash, cash equivalents, short-term investments and restricted cash. During the three months ended April 30, 2018, MongoDB used $8.0 million of cash in operations and $0.4 million in capital expenditures, leading to negative free cash flow of $8.4 million, compared to negative free cash flow of $12.4 million in the year-ago period.

A reconciliation of each Non-GAAP measure to the most directly comparable GAAP measure has been provided in the financial statement tables included at the end of this press release. An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading "Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

First Quarter Fiscal 2019 and Recent Business Highlights

  • MongoDB Atlas, the company's managed cloud database-as-a-service offering, continues to see significant momentum in both our self-service and direct sales channels, driven by the popularity of MongoDB and major secular trends around cloud adoption and database modernization. Less than two years since its launch, Atlas comprised 14% of total revenue for the first quarter of fiscal year 2019, representing over 400% year-over-year growth. Atlas added approximately 1,000 customers in the quarter, representing a wide range of businesses and workloads across industries, geographies and use cases.
  • MongoDB saw a 47% increase in six-figure relationships with customers and meaningful growth including in markets where the company has historically had little to no presence. This reflects the global appeal of the MongoDB platform and was evident in the breadth and quality of customer wins around the world, including transactions with multiple large financial services firms in Australia, a large media company located in the Middle East, a large financial services firm in Latin America, a number of wins with customers in different industries in China, and many more.
  • Ongoing momentum in MongoDB's partner ecosystem is translating into more strategic deals, which was showcased in a significant expansion of the partnership with IBM this quarter. IBM will activate its global sales force to resell MongoDB as part of IBM's offerings to enterprises looking to leverage IBM's Cloud Private and analytics platforms. This is a strong example of how MongoDB can be a core component for independent software vendors building solutions designed to drive digital transformation for enterprise customers.

Business Outlook

Based on information as of today, June 6, 2018, MongoDB is issuing the following financial guidance for the second quarter and full year fiscal 2019:


Second Quarter Fiscal 2019

Full Year Fiscal 2019

Revenue

$51.0 million to $52.0 million

$217 million to $220 million

Non-GAAP Loss from Operations

$(23.5) million to $(23.0) million

$(84) million to $(82) million

Non-GAAP Net Loss per Share

$(0.46) to $(0.45)

$(1.66) to $(1.62)

Reconciliation of non-GAAP loss from operations and non-GAAP net loss per share guidance to the most directly comparable GAAP measures is not available without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to the high variability, complexity and low visibility with respect to the charges excluded from these non-GAAP measures; in particular, the measures and effects of stock-based compensation expense specific to equity compensation awards that are directly impacted by unpredictable fluctuations in our stock price. We expect the variability of the above charges to have a significant, and potentially unpredictable, impact on our future GAAP financial results.

Conference Call Information

MongoDB will host a conference call today, June 6, 2018, at 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) to discuss its financial results and business outlook.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release includes certain "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Act, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, including statements concerning our financial guidance for the second quarter and full year fiscal 2019, our go-to-market and growth strategies, the opportunity presented by the partnership with IBM and the broader partner ecosystem, our ability to expand our leadership position and drive revenue growth, and the anticipated benefits of our platform for our customers and partners. These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, plans, objectives, expectations and intentions and other statements contained in this press release that are not historical facts and statements identified by words such as "anticipate," "believe," "continue," "could," "estimate," "expect," "intend," "may," "plan," "project," "will," "would" or the negative or plural of these words or similar expressions or variations. These forward-looking statements reflect our current views about our plans, intentions, expectations, strategies and prospects, which are based on the information currently available to us and on assumptions we have made. Although we believe that our plans, intentions, expectations, strategies and prospects as reflected in or suggested by those forward-looking statements are reasonable, we can give no assurance that the plans, intentions, expectations or strategies will be attained or achieved. Furthermore, actual results may differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements and are subject to a variety of assumptions, uncertainties, risks and factors that are beyond our control including, without limitation: our limited operating history; our history of losses; failure of our database platform to satisfy customer demands; our investments in new products and our ability to introduce new features, services or enhancements; the effects of increased competition; our ability to effectively expand our sales and marketing organization; our ability to continue to build and maintain credibility with the developer community; our ability to add new customers or increase sales to our existing customers; our ability to maintain, protect, enforce and enhance our intellectual property; the growth and expansion of the market for database products and our ability to penetrate that market; our ability to maintain the security of our software and adequately address privacy concerns; our ability to manage our growth effectively and successfully recruit additional highly-qualified personnel; the price volatility of our common stock; and those risks detailed from time-to-time under the caption "Risk Factors" and elsewhere in our Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") filings and reports, including our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on March 30, 2018, as well as future filings and reports by us. Except as required by law, we undertake no duty or obligation to update any forward-looking statements contained in this release as a result of new information, future events, changes in expectations or otherwise.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes the following financial measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the SEC: non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP loss from operations, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss per share and free cash flow. Non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP loss from operations and non-GAAP net loss exclude stock-based compensation expense and, in the case of non-GAAP net loss, change in fair value of warrant liability. Non-GAAP net loss per share is calculated by dividing non-GAAP net loss by the weighted-average shares used to compute net loss per share attributable to common stockholders, basic and diluted, and for periods prior to and including the period in which we completed our initial public offering, giving effect to the conversion of preferred stock at the beginning of the period. MongoDB uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing its financial results and believes they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating MongoDB's ongoing operational performance. MongoDB believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing its financial results with other companies in MongoDB's industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors.

Free cash flow represents net cash used in operating activities less capital expenditures and capitalized software development costs, if any. MongoDB uses free cash flow to understand and evaluate its liquidity and to generate future operating plans. The exclusion of capital expenditures and amounts capitalized for software development facilitates comparisons of MongoDB's liquidity on a period-to-period basis and excludes items that it does not consider to be indicative of its liquidity. MongoDB believes that free cash flow is a measure of liquidity that provides useful information to investors in understanding and evaluating the strength of its liquidity and future ability to generate cash that can be used for strategic opportunities or investing in its business in the same manner as MongoDB's management and board of directors.

Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. In particular, other companies may report non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP loss from operations, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss per share, free cash flow or similarly titled measures but calculate them differently, which reduces their usefulness as comparative measures. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, as presented below. This earnings press release and any future releases containing such non-GAAP reconciliations can also be found on the Investor Relations page of MongoDB's website at http://investors.mongodb.com.
