Date: 02/24/2016

Announces $20 Million Stock Repurchase Program

Intralinks Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: IL), a leading, global SaaS provider of secure content collaboration solutions, today announced its results for the fourth quarter and full-year ended December 31, 2015.

“We wrapped up 2015 with a solid fourth quarter.  Revenue for the quarter increased 10% in constant currency year-over year, resulting in 13% constant currency growth for the full year,” said Ron Hovsepian, Intralinks’ president and CEO.  “I’m pleased with the progress we made during 2015 as we continued to grow our enterprise backlog and make investments in the business to further position us to succeed.  We are clear on what we need to accomplish during 2016 and are excited by the opportunities ahead of us.  I am confident that the continued successful execution of our strategy will result in strong long-term performance.”

“With our expectations for the business and our current stock price, we believe that repurchasing shares of our outstanding common stock is a compelling use of our capital to further create shareholder value,” continued Mr. Hovsepian.  “As a result, our Board of Directors has authorized a $20 million stock repurchase program.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes information about certain financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP” or “U.S. GAAP”). These non-GAAP measures are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and are not necessarily comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.

Management defines its non-GAAP financial measures as follows:

• Non-GAAP adjusted gross profit represents the corresponding GAAP measure adjusted to exclude, if applicable: (1) amortization of intangible assets and (2) stock-based compensation expense.

• Non-GAAP adjusted operating income represents the corresponding GAAP measure adjusted to exclude, if applicable: (1) amortization of intangible assets, (2) stock-based compensation expense and (3) impairment charges or asset write-offs.

• Non-GAAP adjusted net income represents the corresponding GAAP measure adjusted to exclude, if applicable: (1) amortization of intangible assets, (2) stock-based compensation expense and (3) impairment charges or asset write-offs.  The income tax expense included in non-GAAP adjusted net income is calculated using an estimated long-term effective tax rate.

• Non-GAAP adjusted net income per share represents non-GAAP adjusted net income (which is defined above) divided by fully diluted weighted average shares outstanding.

• Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA represents net loss adjusted to exclude, if applicable: (1) depreciation and amortization, (2) amortization of intangible assets, (3) stock-based compensation expense, (4) impairment charges or asset write-offs, (5) interest expense, (6) amortization of debt issuance costs, (7) other expense (income), net, and (8) income tax expense (benefit).

• Free cash flow represents net cash provided by operating activities less capitalized software development costs and capital expenditures.

• The Company refers to growth rates at constant currency so that the results can be viewed without the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates to facilitate comparisons of the Company's performance from one period to another.  Constant currency for revenue is calculated by retranslating current and prior period revenue at a consistent rate. 

Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when viewed with our results under U.S. GAAP and the accompanying reconciliations, provide useful information about our period-over-period growth and provide additional information that is useful for evaluating our operating performance. In addition, free cash flow provides management with useful information for managing the cash needs of our business.  Management also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide a more meaningful comparison of our operating results against those of other companies in our industry, as well as on a period-over-period basis, because these measures exclude items that are not representative of our operating performance, such as amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense and interest expense. Management believes that including these costs in our results of operations results in a lack of comparability between our operating results and those of our peers in the industry. However, non-GAAP adjusted gross profit, non-GAAP adjusted operating income, non-GAAP adjusted net income, non-GAAP adjusted net income per share, non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow are not measures of financial performance under U.S. GAAP and, accordingly, should not be considered substitutes for or superior to gross profit, loss from operations, net loss, net loss per share and net cash provided by operating activities as indicators of operating performance.

Reconciliations of GAAP to Non-GAAP financial measures are included in this press release.
