Wednesday, August 3, 2016

NEW YORK, NY - August 3, 2016 - Intralinks Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: IL), a leading, global SaaS provider of secure content collaboration solutions, today announced its results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016.

"Our second quarter results demonstrate the successful execution of our strategy across the company," said Ron Hovsepian, Intralinks’ president and chief executive officer.  "In our M&A use case, deal count and new business reached all-time highs and we continued to gain market share.  In our Enterprise business, we continued to gain traction with our largest clients, retention rates remained high and we meaningfully expanded existing relationships as our clients increased their number of users and use cases.  Also, our ongoing investment in sales capacity delivered important new customer wins during the quarter.  We are well positioned to grow our business while continuing our actions to increase profit margins and free cash flow in the second half of this year and beyond."

Second Quarter 2016 Financial Highlights

• Revenue was $73.0 million, compared to $69.0 million in the second quarter of 2015, an increase of 6%, or 7% in constant currency.

• Enterprise revenue was $29.0 million, compared to $26.6 million in the second quarter of 2015, an increase of 9%, or 10% in constant currency.

• General and administrative expense in the second quarter of 2016 declined both as a percentage of revenue and in absolute dollars as cost reduction initiatives produced results.  This was the lowest level of G&A expense as a percentage of revenue in nearly three years.

Business Highlights

• Continued to expand relationships with our existing Intralinks VIA customers with nearly half of our top 25 customers spending more with us this quarter than they were a year ago.

• Signed important deals during the quarter with several customers from our four target industries:  financial services, life sciences, energy and IP-intensive manufacturing including agreements with one of the world's largest wealth management firms, a large biotech firm and a large government contractor.

• Grew the number of active Intralinks Dealspace customers by 10% and number of new projects by 11% year-over-year.

Business Outlook

Commenting on the company's outlook, Chris Lafond, Intralinks' chief financial officer said, "Our efforts to expand profit margins and increase free cash flow are progressing faster than we originally planned for this year and we are accelerating our efforts to rationalize our cost structure.  As a result, we have increased our non-GAAP adjusted operating margin guidance for the year to 8%.  In addition, we see further near-term margin expansion that would drive non-GAAP adjusted operating margin to the 12% to 14% range in 2017, which puts us on track to deliver our 20% target.  We expect to accomplish this while still driving double-digit revenue growth."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes certain financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP” or “U.S. GAAP”). Our definitions of these non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the definitions used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore comparability may be limited. These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to the company's results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP and should not be considered substitutes for or superior to the company's U.S. GAAP results.  We endeavor to compensate for the limitations of the non-GAAP measures presented in this release by providing the comparable GAAP measures with equal or greater prominence.  We encourage investors to examine the reconciling adjustments between the GAAP and non-GAAP measures, which are included in this release.

Management defines its non-GAAP financial measures as follows:

• 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.

• 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 and stock-based compensation expense.

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