MongoDB, Inc. Announces Third Quarter Fiscal 2018 Financial Results 12/12/2017 Total Revenue of $41.5 million, up 58% Year-over-Year Over 4,900 Customers at End of Third Quarter, up ~88% Year-over-Year Over 2,600 MongoDB Atlas Customers at End of Third Quarter, up ~37% Quarter-over-Quarter NEW YORK, Dec. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- MongoDB, Inc. (NASDAQ: MDB), the leading modern, general purpose database platform, today announced its financial results for the three and nine months ended October 31, 2017. "MongoDB delivered strong third quarter results, highlighted by 58% revenue growth," said Dev Ittycheria, President and Chief Executive Officer of MongoDB. "Some of the largest organizations in the world are increasingly embracing MongoDB's next-generation database due to the superior flexibility, scalability and developer productivity benefits offered, as well as the lower total cost of ownership realized. In addition, strong and growing demand for consuming MongoDB as a service is driving rapid growth of MongoDB Atlas, our database-as-a-service offering." Ittycheria added, "Completing our initial public offering during the quarter was a milestone for MongoDB. The proceeds from the offering will enable us to execute against our long-term growth initiatives and position us to capture an increasing share of the $45 billion database market." Third Quarter Fiscal 2018 Financial Highlights Revenue: Total revenue was $41.5 million in the third quarter fiscal 2018, an increase of 58% year-over-year. Subscription revenue was $37.9 million, an increase of 59% year-over-year, and services revenue was $3.6 million, an increase of 44% year-over-year. Gross Profit: Gross profit was $30.4 million in the third quarter fiscal 2018, representing a 73% gross margin consistent with the year-ago period. Non-GAAP gross profit was $30.7 million, representing a 74% non-GAAP gross margin. Loss from Operations: Loss from operations was $24.1 million in the third quarter fiscal 2018, compared to $19.3 million in the year-ago period. Non-GAAP loss from operations was $18.4 million, compared to $15.0 million in the year-ago period. Net Loss: Net loss was $24.2 million, or $1.39 per share based on 17.4 million weighted-average shares outstanding, in the third quarter fiscal 2018. This compares to $19.5 million, or $1.57 per share based on 12.4 million weighted-average shares outstanding, in the year-ago period. Non-GAAP net loss was $18.5 million, or $0.44 per share based on 41.7 million non-GAAP weighted-average shares outstanding, which we refer to as non-GAAP net loss per share. This compares to $15.2 million, or $0.40 per share based on 38.3 million non-GAAP weighted-average shares outstanding, in the year-ago period. Cash Flow: As of October 31, 2017, MongoDB had $289.1 million in cash, cash equivalents, short-term investments and restricted cash, which includes approximately $201.6 million of net proceeds, after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses, from its initial public offering. During the three months ended October 31, 2017, MongoDB used $10.3 million of cash in operations and $0.1 million in capital expenditures, leading to negative free cash flow of $10.4 million, compared to negative free cash flow of $6.5 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." Third Quarter Fiscal 2018 and Recent Business Highlights Announced MongoDB 3.6, which includes a number of innovations and enhancements designed to make developers more productive, to expedite data-driven insights and to scale to run in any environment. Key innovations include: Change Streams, which enable developers to easily build event-driven, real-time applications; Retryable Writes, which ensure that if a database server goes down for just a millisecond, the user won't notice because the database will "retry" the operation in the background; Cross Region Replication for MongoDB Atlas, which ensures that an application stays up even if an entire cloud region goes down, while also allowing MongoDB customers to put data closer to their users for optimal user experience; new diagnostic and intelligence capabilities in MongoDB's management platform, such as quickly identifying slow running queries and auto-generating recommendations for new indexes, which make it easier than ever for teams to inspect and improve database and application performance. Completed its initial public offering and listed its shares on the Nasdaq Global Market in October 2017. MongoDB sold 9,200,000 shares of its Class A common stock at a price of $24.00 per share, including the full exercise of the underwriters' option to purchase an additional 1,200,000 shares of Class A common stock, for a total of approximately $201.6 million in net proceeds after taking into account underwriting costs and offering costs. Continued growth of the MongoDB ecosystem, including expanded partnerships with Infosys and Tableau. Together with Infosys, MongoDB launched a new mainframe offloading solution that builds upon the partnership the two companies announced last December to help enterprises accelerate their digital transformation and application modernization strategies. Partnered with Tableau to announce MongoDB Connector for BI is now certified by Tableau as a named connector. For the first time, users can visually analyze rich, modern data structures accessed directly from MongoDB Enterprise Advanced. Business Outlook Based on information as of today, December 12, 2017, MongoDB is issuing the following financial guidance for the fourth quarter and full year fiscal 2018 (both periods ending January 31, 2018): Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2018 Full Year Fiscal 2018 Revenue $42.0 million to $42.5 million $151.5 million to $152.0 million Non-GAAP Loss from Operations $(21.5) million to $(21.0) million $(76.5) million to $(76.0) million Non-GAAP Net Loss per Share $(0.43) to $(0.42) $(1.77) to $(1.76) 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, December 12, 2017, at 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) to discuss its financial results and business outlook. A live webcast of the call will be available on the "Investor Relations" page of MongoDB's website at http://investors.mongodb.com.

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 fourth quarter and full year fiscal 2018, our position to execute on our go-to-market strategy, and our ability to expand our leadership position and market opportunity. 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; the effects of increased competition; our ability to effectively expand our sales and marketing organization; our ability to add new customers or increase sales to our existing customers; our adoption strategies and licensing model; our investments in new products and our ability to introduce new features, services or enhancements; 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 in our recently filed Registration Statement on Form S-1, which was declared effective by the SEC on October 18, 2017, 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, 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.
