TeamViewer AG continues its high growth combined with high profitability
- Q3: Billings up 63% and Cash EBITDA up 95%
- 9M: Billings up 45% to EUR 224 million
- 9M: Cash EBITDA up 54% to EUR 120 million
- Continued subscriber growth to more than 430,000
- Further deleveraging and lower net debt due to strong Cash EBITDA growth
- Full-year guidance confirmed
Oliver Steil, CEO of TeamViewer, said: "Our first results as a listed company underscore TeamViewer's strong financial profile combining high growth with high profitability. The traction of our strategic growth initiatives is reflected in our billings growth, and our subscription based Software as a Service business model results in very good earnings growth."
Stefan Gaiser, CFO of TeamViewer, said: "The strong billings and Cash EBITDA growth in the third quarter underpins our confidence in our 2019 targets. We are therefore well on track to deliver on our full-year guidance."
Initial public offering of TeamViewer AG
On September 25, 2019, TeamViewer AG started its trading on the regulated market segment of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (Prime Standard). In total, 75,000,000 ordinary bearer shares with no par value from the holdings of the Existing Shareholder Tiger LuxOne S.à r.l. have been placed with investors, consisting of 60,000,000 Base Shares and 15,000,000 Additional Base Shares in full exercise of the Upsize-Option. Shares have been sold at a price of EUR 26.25 per share.
During the first nine months of 2019, TeamViewer continued to drive tangible growth initiatives along three key strategic dimensions: strengthen customer segment coverage, increase the number of use cases, and expand the geographical footprint.
TeamViewer's new enterprise product showed significant traction. Subscribers with annual contract value (ACV) above EUR 10,000 per year grew strongly by 60% to 590 customers in the third quarter 2019 year-over-year.
An example for innovative new use cases is TeamViewer Pilot, an Augmented Reality (AR) product, that enables field professionals to receive live guidance from remote experts. With the recent release of version 2.0, TeamViewer Pilot now supports Android devices as well as headsets and smart glasses.
By now, TeamViewer has a truly global footprint with offices in major growth regions. During the first nine months the Company has substantially strengthened its activities in these regions to further drive geographic expansion. Furthermore, TeamViewer has initiated the setup of a new R&D hub in Greece to further accelerate its innovation roadmap.
Continued strong growth in billings
TeamViewer's billings in the third quarter 2019 grew by 63% year-over-year to EUR 83 million (Q3 2018: EUR 51 million). For the first nine months, billings were up 45% year-over-year to EUR 224 million (9M 2018: EUR 155 million). On a regional basis, AMS (North and South America) saw the highest growth in billings with 60%, followed by EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) with a 41% and APAC (Asia and Pacific Countries) with a 30% increase for the first nine months. In the third quarter 2019, billings grew by 75% in AMS, by 55% in APAC and by 54% in EMEA.
The continuous growth in billings is driven by TeamViewer's 103% net retention rate combined with a strong expansion in new subscribers resulting in more than 430,000 paying subscribers at the end of the third quarter (30 Sept 2018: 215,424).
TeamViewer invested substantially in its research and development as well as sales and marketing operations during the first nine months. Due to its efficient customer acquisition model, total costs as percentage of billings grew slower than billings, resulting in a 3 percentage point Cash EBITDA margin increase to 53% compared to the same period last year.
Cash EBITDA was up 54% to EUR 120 million (9M 2018: EUR 78 million) for the first nine months. It grew by 95% to EUR 46 million (3Q 2018: EUR 24 million) in the third quarter year-over-year.
Cash EBITDA means EBITDA adjusted for specific non-recurring items, and profit and loss effective change in deferred revenue. It is a useful metric for evaluating TeamViewer's performance as it facilitates comparisons of core operating results from period to period by removing the impact of changes in deferred revenue, its capital structure, asset base, tax consequences and specific non-recurring costs and others.
Net income was EUR 59 million for the first nine months, compared to EUR 0 million in the prior year period. In the third quarter net income was EUR 14 million (3Q 2018: EUR 10 million)following the switch to a subscription model.
TeamViewer's net financial debt decreased following a debt-equity-swap which was implemented prior to its initial public offering. The leverage ratio improved from 4.9x as of year-end 2018 to 3.7x by the end of the third quarter, driven by substantial Cash EBITDA growth in last twelve months (LTM) resulting in strong cash flows and the decrease in debt. TeamViewer continues to expect a further improvement of the leverage ratio to about 3x by year-end 2019.
Revenues for the first nine months (EUR 283 million) are higher than billings (EUR 224 million) due to the significant release of deferred perpetual license revenues. As the transition to subscription was fully completed in 2018 and the vast majority of perpetual revenues is recognized by year-end 2020, the effect will reverse, and billings will exceed revenues in the medium term.
Considering TeamViewer's performance in the third quarter and the positive outlook towards the last quarter of the year, the company confirms its targets for fiscal year 2019. Given the strong historic net retention rate above 100% and expected new billings contribution in the fourth quarter, the company is targeting the upper end of the billings guidance. At the same time, TeamViewer continues to invest in its future growth potential through additional investments into Sales & Marketing and Research & Development. Therefore, TeamViewer is targeting the mid-range of Cash EBITDA guidance.
