MongoDB, Inc. (NASDAQ: MDB), the leading, modern general purpose database platform, today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended April 30, 2019.

MongoDB

"MongoDB delivered excellent first quarter results driven by strength across all products and geographies," said Dev Ittycheria, President and Chief Executive Officer of MongoDB. "Our success is being driven in part by growing customer interest in a modern, general purpose database for use on premise and in hybrid and multi-cloud environments to help users innovate more quickly and efficiently."

Ittycheria added, "The continued success of MongoDB Atlas, our fully managed global, multi-cloud database service, reflects the powerful combination of the move to the cloud and customers' desire for sophisticated managed database offerings.  These trends are reshaping the market and we believe will provide a significant growth opportunity for MongoDB for the foreseeable future."

First Quarter Fiscal 2020 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue: Total revenue was $89.4 million in the first quarter fiscal 2020, an increase of 78% year-over-year. Subscription revenue was $84.0 million, an increase of 82% year-over-year, and services revenue was $5.4 million, an increase of 33% year-over-year.
  • Gross Profit: Gross profit was $61.2 million in the first quarter fiscal 2020, representing a 68% gross margin, compared to 73% in the year-ago period. Non-GAAP gross profit was $62.8 million, representing a 70% non-GAAP gross margin.
  • Loss from Operations: Loss from operations was $30.6 million in the first quarter fiscal 2020, compared to $26.7 million in the year-ago period. Non-GAAP loss from operations was $12.6 million, compared to $18.9 million in the year-ago period.
  • Net Loss: Net loss was $33.2 million, or $0.61 per share, based on 54.7 million weighted-average shares outstanding in the first quarter fiscal 2020. This compares to $26.6 million, or $0.53 per share, based on 50.4 million weighted-average shares outstanding, in the year-ago period. Non-GAAP net loss was $12.1 million or $0.22 per share. This compares to $18.8 million or $0.37 per share in the year-ago period.
  • Cash Flow: As of April 30, 2019, MongoDB had $476.9 million in cash, cash equivalents, short-term investments and restricted cash. During the three months ended April 30, 2019, MongoDB generated $3.2 million of cash from operations and used $0.4 million in capital expenditures, leading to free cash flow of $2.8 million, compared to negative free cash flow of $8.4 million in the year-ago period.

We recently adopted the new revenue recognition accounting standard Accounting Standards Codification 606 effective as of January 31, 2019 and applied as of February 1, 2018, on a full retrospective basis. All amounts and disclosures in this press release have been updated to comply with the new revenue standard. In addition, our results include the impact of our acquisition of mLab in November 2018.

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 2020 and Recent Business Highlights

  • Announced a new business partnership with Google Cloud Platform (GCP) that will provide deeper product integration and unified billing for joint customers. MongoDB Atlas will be integrated directly within the GCP Console and we have expanded our go to market relationship. Offering Atlas as a first class service on GCP means customers will get a seamless experience as Atlas will be tightly coupled with core GCP services such as identity and access management, logging and monitoring, as well as open source projects like Kubernetes and Tensorflow.
  • Acquired Realm, the company behind the Realm mobile database and synchronization platform, to expand MongoDB's mobile product offerings and deepen its relationship with developer communities focused on mobile and serverless development. There are more than 100,000 active developers using Realm.
  • Named a Leader by Forrester Research in two recent reports. The Forrester Wave™: Big Data NoSQL, Q1 2019 gave MongoDB the highest scores possible in the Data Security, Performance, Scalability, High Availability, Global Distribution and Ability to Execute criteria. The Forrester Wave™: Database-As-A-Service, Q2 2019 gave MongoDB the highest scores possible in the High Availability, Disaster Recovery, Multimodel Support, Automation, User Access and Roadmap criteria.

Business Outlook

Based on information as of today, June 5, 2019, MongoDB is issuing the following financial guidance for the second quarter and full year fiscal 2020. 


Second Quarter Fiscal 2020

Full Year Fiscal 2020

Revenue

$90.0 million to $92.0 million

$375.0 million to $381.0 million

Non-GAAP Loss from Operations

$(16.5) million to $(15.5) million

$(63.0) million to $(59.0) million

Non-GAAP Net Loss per Share

$(0.29) to $(0.27)

$(1.11) to $(1.04)

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.

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 fiscal quarter and full year fiscal 2020, the impact of market trends on prospects for future growth and the benefits from the acquisition of Realm. 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 investments in new products and our ability to introduce new features, services or enhancements; 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 April 1, 2019, 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 and non-GAAP gross margin exclude stock-based compensation expense.  Non-GAAP loss from operations, non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share exclude:

  • stock-based compensation expense;
  • amortization of intangible assets for the recently acquired customer relationships and acquired technology associated with the acquisitions of mLab and WiredTiger;
  • amortization of the founder holdback associated with the mLab acquisition, that was deemed to be compensation expense for GAAP purposes;
  • acquisition costs associated with the purchase of Realm; and
  • in the case of non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share, non-cash interest expense related to our convertible senior notes.

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 provided by or 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 https://investors.mongodb.com.

(a) Direct Sales Customers are customers that were sold through our direct sales force and channel partners.

(b) Represents the number of customers with $100,000 or greater in annualized recurring revenue ("ARR") and annualized monthly recurring revenue ("MRR"). We define ARR as the subscription revenue we would contractually expect to receive from customers over the following 12 months assuming no increases or reductions in their subscriptions. ARR excludes self-service products, including MongoDB Atlas not sold on a commitment basis. ARR also excludes professional services. For customers who utilize our self-service offerings, we measure the annualized MRR, which is calculated by annualizing their usage of our self-serve products in the prior 30 days and assuming no increases or reductions in their usage.
