Fiscal 2018 Guidance

As of the date of this release, July 26, 2018, for the full year ending December 31, 2018, the company expects:

 
  2017 Actual
as Reported
Guidance
(as of July 26,  2018)
GAAP revenue $1.177 billion $1.140 to $1.160 billion
Adjusted EBITDA $351 million $310 to $330 million
Free cash flow $151 million ~$120 million
     

As previously disclosed, the Company's free cash flow guidance does not reflect the impact of payments made pursuant to its settlement with the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission or the potential securities class action lawsuit settlements described in the Company's Form 8-K filed on May 18, 2018, both of which will impact the Company's actual free cash flow for 2018. The potential securities class action lawsuit settlements remain subject to court approval.

Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow are non-GAAP financial measures. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable measure calculated in accordance with GAAP is provided in the financial statement tables included at the end of this press release.

Conference Call and Webcast Information

Endurance International Group's second quarter 2018 financial results teleconference and webcast is scheduled to begin at 8:00 a.m. EDT on Thursday, July 26, 2018. To participate on the live call, analysts and investors should dial (888) 734-0328 at least ten minutes prior to the call. Endurance International Group will also offer a live and archived webcast of the conference call, accessible from the Investor Relations section of the company's website at http://ir.endurance.com.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to our financial information presented in accordance with GAAP, we use adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow, which are non-GAAP financial measures, to evaluate the operating and financial performance of our business, identify trends affecting our business, develop projections and make strategic business decisions. A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's operating performance, financial position or cash flow that excludes amounts that are included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP or includes amounts that are excluded from the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.

Our non-GAAP financial measures may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies in our industry, as other companies in our industry may calculate non-GAAP financial results differently. In addition, there are limitations in using non-GAAP financial measures because they are not prepared in accordance with GAAP and exclude expenses that may have a material impact on our reported financial results. For example, adjusted EBITDA excludes interest expense, which has been and will continue to be for the foreseeable future a significant recurring expense in our business. The presentation of non-GAAP financial information is not meant to be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. We urge you to review the additional information about adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow shown below, including the reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to their comparable GAAP financial measures, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that we calculate as net (loss) income, excluding the impact of interest expense (net), income tax expense (benefit), depreciation, amortization of other intangible assets, stock-based compensation, restructuring expenses, transaction expenses and charges, (gain) loss of unconsolidated entities, impairment of other long-lived assets, SEC investigations reserve (with respect to fiscal year and third quarter 2017), and shareholder litigation reserve. We view adjusted EBITDA as a performance measure and believe it helps investors evaluate and compare our core operating performance from period to period.

Free Cash Flow, or FCF, is a non-GAAP financial measure that we calculate as cash flow from operations less capital expenditures and capital lease obligations. We believe that FCF provides investors with an indicator of our ability to generate positive cash flows after meeting our obligations with regard to capital expenditures (including capital lease obligations).

Key Operating Metrics

Total Subscribers - We define total subscribers as the approximate number of subscribers that, as of the end of a period, are identified as subscribing directly to our products on a paid basis, excluding accounts that access our solutions via resellers or that purchase only domain names from us. Subscribers of more than one brand, and subscribers with more than one distinct billing relationship or subscription with us, are counted as separate subscribers. Total subscribers for a period reflects adjustments to add or subtract subscribers as we integrate acquisitions and/or are otherwise able to identify subscribers that meet, or do not meet, this definition of total subscribers. In the second quarter of 2018, these adjustments
had a net negative impact of approximately 800 subscribers on our total subscriber count.

Average Revenue Per Subscriber (ARPS) - We calculate ARPS as the amount of revenue we recognize in a period, including marketing development funds and other revenue not received from subscribers, divided by the average of the number of total subscribers at the beginning of the period and at the end of the period, which we refer to as average subscribers for the period, divided by the number of months in the period. See definition of "Total Subscribers" above. ARPS does not represent an exact measure of the average amount a subscriber spends with us each month, since our calculation of ARPS is impacted by revenues generated by non-subscribers.

(1) Interest expense includes impact of amortization of deferred financing costs, original issuance discounts and interest income.
(2) As disclosed in the first quarter of 2018, we revised the allocation of our 2017 adjusted EBITDA between our web presence and domain segment to correct a misallocation of domain registration costs in our previously reported segment figures. This correction resulted in the reallocation of adjusted EBITDA from the domain segment to the web presence segment of $1.8 million and $3.0 million for the three and six months ending June 30, 2017, respectively.  Consolidated adjusted EBITDA figures for these periods were not affected by this correction.
