SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif., Nov. 6, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)—MINDBODY, Inc. (NASDAQ: MB), the leading technology platform for the fitness, beauty and wellness services industries, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018.
“This was our first full quarter with two distinct go-to-market teams for fitness, beauty and wellness,” said Rick Stollmeyer, co-founder and chief executive officer of Mindbody. “Our recent acquisitions have introduced greater operational challenges than expected in the back half of the year. Yet we achieved multiple successes in Q3, are in a unique strategic position and are excited about our long term growth opportunities.”
“In the third quarter we delivered the highest average monthly subscription revenue for new subscribers in the history of both the Mindbody and Booker platforms,” said Brett White, chief operating officer and chief financial officer. “As the newly formed Beauty and Wellness team ramps, we expect to continue to grow our target market customer base, increase our platform partnerships and expand our consumer brand into 2019.”

Third Quarter Key Metrics
We regularly review the following key metrics to measure our performance, identify trends affecting our business, formulate financial projections, make strategic business decisions and assess working capital needs.As of and for the Quarter Ended September 30, 2018 2017 YoY Subscribers (end of period)2 67,364 59,028 14% Average monthly revenue per subscriber $309 $259 19% Payments volume (in millions) $2,674 $1,971 36% Dollar-based net expansion rate (average for the quarter)3 101% 108%
1 A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures is provided in the financial statement tables included in this press release. An explanation of these measures is also included under the heading “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”
2 We define subscribers as unique physical locations or individual practitioners who have active subscriptions to our services, including MINDBODY, Booker or FitMetrix, as of the end of the period. Subscribers do not include locations or practitioners who only use Frederick (our marketing automation software.)
3Starting the first quarter of 2018, we calculate our dollar-based net expansion rate using a quarterly average. We believe that this change in methodology for calculating our dollar-based net expansion rate mitigates some of the volatility that can occur when this key metric is calculated using only the last month in the period. Prior periods have been adjusted to conform with this new methodology.
For the fourth quarter 2018, Mindbody expects to report:
- Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2018 in the range of $65.0 million to $67.0 million, representing 31% to 35% growth over the fourth quarter of 2017.
- Non-GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter of 2018 in the range of $(5.0) million to $(3.5) million and weighted average shares outstanding for the fourth quarter of approximately 47.9 million shares.
The outlook has been updated to reflect the acquisitions of FitMetrix and Booker. Non-GAAP net loss excludes estimates for, among other things, stock-based compensation expense, amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquisition-related expenses, including transaction and integration expenses, and the amortization of debt discount and issuance costs from our convertible notes. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial guidance measures to corresponding GAAP financial guidance measures is not available on a forward-looking basis because we do not provide guidance on GAAP net loss and are not able to present the various reconciling cash and non-cash items between GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss without unreasonable effort. In particular, stock-based compensation expense is impacted by MINDBODY’s future hiring and retention needs, as well as the future fair market value of MINDBODY’s Class A common stock, all of which is difficult to predict and is subject to constant change. The actual amount of these expenses during 2018 will have a significant impact on MINDBODY’s future GAAP financial results.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In this press release, MINDBODY has provided financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP). We disclose the following historical non-GAAP financial measures in this press release: Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income (loss), and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share. We use these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing our financial results and evaluating our ongoing operational performance. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide an additional tool for investors to use in understanding and evaluating ongoing operating results and trends in the same manner as our management and board of directors. Our use of these non-GAAP financial measures has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our financial results as reported under GAAP. Because of these and other limitations, you should consider these non-GAAP financial measures along with other GAAP-based financial performance measures, including various cash flow metrics, net loss, and our GAAP financial results. We have provided a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures in the financial statement tables included in this press release, and investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation.
We define Adjusted EBITDA as our GAAP net loss before (1) stock-based compensation expense, (2) depreciation and amortization, (3) acquisition-related expenses, including, transaction and integration expenses, (4) income tax provision (benefit), and (5) other expense, net, which consisted of interest income, interest expense, and other income (expense), net. Prior period acquisition-related expenses were insignificant. Accordingly, prior periods have not been adjusted to exclude these expenses.
We have provided below a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. We have presented Adjusted EBITDA in this press release because it is a key measure used by our management and board of directors to understand and evaluate our core operating performance and trends, to prepare and approve our annual budget, and to develop short and long-term operational plans. In particular, we believe that the exclusion of the amounts eliminated in calculating Adjusted EBITDA can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of our core business. Adjusted EBITDA has a number of limitations, including the following: (1) Adjusted EBITDA excludes stock-based compensation expense, which has been and will continue to be for the foreseeable future a significant recurring expense in MINDBODY’s business; (2) although depreciation and amortization expense are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect cash capital expenditure requirements for such replacements or for new capital expenditure requirements; (3) Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the cash requirements for acquisition-related expenses or tax payments; and (4) other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate Adjusted EBITDA or similarly titled measures differently, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure.
Non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share
We define non-GAAP net income (loss) as GAAP net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders before: (1) stock-based compensation expense, (2) amortization of acquired intangible assets, (3) acquisition-related expenses, including transaction and integration expenses, (4) partial releases of valuation allowances due to acquisition, and (5) the amortization of debt discount and issuance costs from our convertible notes. Non-GAAP net income per share is calculated as non-GAAP net income divided by the diluted weighted-average shares outstanding. Non-GAAP net loss per share, is calculated as non-GAAP net loss divided by the weighted-average shares outstanding. Prior period acquisition-related expenses were insignificant. Accordingly, prior periods have not been adjusted to exclude these expenses.
These non-GAAP financial measures have a number of limitations, including the following: (1) these non-GAAP financial measures exclude stock-based compensation expense and the amortization of debt discount and issuance costs from our convertible notes, which has been and will continue to be for the foreseeable future a significant recurring expense in MINDBODY’s business; and (2) other companies, including companies in our industry, may exclude different items in their calculation of these non-GAAP financial measures, which reduces their usefulness as a comparative measure.
