APX Group Holdings, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2019 Results

08/06/2019

2nd Quarter 2019 Highlights

  • Total revenues increased 10.2% year over year, to $281.1 million
  • Net loss of $115.9 million compared to net loss of $144.4 million in the prior year
  • $155.3 million in Adjusted EBITDAa compared to $137.2 million in Adjusted EBITDAa in the prior year

PROVO, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- APX Group Holdings, Inc. (“APX Group”, “Vivint” or the “Company”) today reported financial and operational results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019.

“The second quarter was one of operational focus in all areas of our business,” said Todd Pedersen, chief executive officer of APX Group. “We’ve been highly focused on increasing our service margins and we continue to make good progress in this area; Average Revenue per User is up $0.86 year over year and with corresponding reductions in net service costs, we’ve seen service margins materially increase. We had a significant new product launch with the release of our Vivint Outdoor Camera Pro, and we’ve achieved our goal to drive a majority of our outdoor camera installations to this new product which improves customer experience, lowers service costs and drives incremental hardware margin. Finally, we’ve had our sales teams focused on the changes to our underwriting process as we implemented a second financing source to the Vivint Flex Pay program. All of this has had some impact on our sales productivity during the summer season, but we saw progress over the course of the second quarter. We’re confident that all of these activities will strengthen both Vivint’s financial performance and our customer value proposition.”

Revenue and Subscriber Data

The Company reported total revenues of $281.1 million for the three-month period ended June 30, 2019, an increase of $26.1 million or 10.2%, as compared to the same period in 2018. Total Subscribers increased by approximately 8% during the three-month period ended June 30, 2019, which accounted for approximately $22.7 million of the increase in total revenues, while approximately $4.1 million of the increase was due to an increase of $0.86 in the Average Monthly Revenue per User. When compared to the three months ended June 30, 2018, foreign currency translation negatively affected total revenues by $0.7 million, as computed on a constant foreign currency basis.

The Company added 111,581 New Subscribers during the second quarter of 2019, a decrease of 5.3% compared to 117,875 New Subscribers during the same period in 2018. Excluding the New Subscribers originated from the retail channel in the second quarter of 2018, New Subscriber growth is flat on a year-over-year comparison basis.

 

a: This earning release includes Adjusted EBITDA, a metric that is not calculated in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the U.S. (“GAAP”). See “Statement Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures” section at the end of this earnings release for the definition of Adjusted EBITDA and a reconciliation to its most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP.

“Vivint continued to make progress on key financial metrics throughout the second quarter of 2019,” said Mark Davies, chief financial officer of APX Group. “Net subscriber acquisition costs continue to improve, contributing not only to increased cash flow from operations, but also to an improvement in our unit of one metrics. On a last 12-month basis, net subscriber acquisition costs per subscriber were down $311 year over year, or 23% from $1,375 in the last 12-months period ended June 30, 2018 to $1,064 per subscriber in the last 12-months period ended June 30, 2019. A large portion of the reduction is due to a decrease in our US Retail Installment Contract mix, which dropped 11 points from the second quarter of 2018 and five points sequentially from 14% in the first quarter 2019 to 9% in the second quarter 2019.”

“General and Administrative expenses, which has been a particular focus of ours, has scaled nicely over the past year,” continued Davies. “G&A expenses have decreased 240 basis points from 19.3% of revenue in the second quarter 2018 to 16.9% in the second quarter of 2019. Our engineering and operations teams have also made marked progress on net service costs, as we reported monthly net service costs of $13.13 per subscriber this quarter, down $3.58, or 21%, from the second quarter 2018 and a sequential improvement from the first quarter of 2019 of $.70 per subscriber in the second quarter of 2019. Financial scaling has been and will continue to be a focus of the entire Vivint team and we expect further improvement on these metrics in the future.”

Costs and Expenses

Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2019 increased by $2.7 million to $92.0 million as compared to $89.3 million for the second quarter of 2018. The primary drivers of the increase were personnel and related support costs of $1.2 million, third-party contracted services costs of $0.8 million, an increase of $0.5 million for postage and shipping related costs, and customer payment processing costs of $0.5 million. The costs increases were partially offset by a decrease of $1.2 million in costs associated with the retail sales channel and other sales pilots.

Net Service Cost per Subscriber was $13.13 for the second quarter of 2019 and Net Service Margin was 75.2%, as compared to Net Service Cost per Subscriber of $16.71 and Net Service Margin of 68.6% for the same period in 2018.

Selling expenses, net of capitalized contract costs, for the second quarter of 2019 decreased by $7.7 million to $57.9 million as compared to $65.7 million for second quarter of 2018. The primary drivers of the decrease were a $6.5 million decrease in personnel and related support costs and $2.8 million in lower costs associated with the retail sales channel and other sales pilots. The cost decreases were partially offset by an increase in marketing and lead generation costs of $2.8 million.

The Company’s Net Subscriber Acquisition Costs per New Subscriber were $1,064 for the last twelve months ended June 30, 2019 as compared to $1,375 for the same period in 2018. The average proceeds collected at point of sale during the last twelve months ended June 30, 2019 was approximately $1,082 per New Subscriber as compared to $1,018 for the same period in 2018.

General and administrative (“G&A”) expenses, net of allocations, for the second quarter of 2019 decreased by $1.8 million to $47.4 million as compared to $49.2 million for the second quarter of 2018. The primary drivers of the decrease were lower personnel and related support costs of $2.3 million and a reduction in research and development costs of $1.5 million. The decreases were partially offset by a $1.3 million increase in bad debt and higher legal services costs of $0.6 million.

Adjusted EBITDA and Net Loss

Net loss was $115.9 million and Adjusted EBITDA was $155.3 million for the second quarter of 2019, as compared to net loss of $144.4 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $137.2 million for the same period in 2018.

Liquidity

As of June 30, 2019, the Company’s liquidity position on a consolidated basis, defined as cash on hand, short-term marketable securities and available borrowing capacity under the Company’s revolving credit facility, was approximately $143 million.

Certain Credit Statistics

The Company's net leverage ratio, defined as the ratio of net debt to LTM Adjusted EBITDA, was 5.5x as of June 30, 2019.

• risks of the smart home and security industry, including risks of and publicity surrounding the sales, subscriber origination and retention process;

• the highly competitive nature of the smart home and security industry and product introductions and promotional activity by our competitors;

• risks related to the Company's exposure to variable rates of interest with respect to its revolving credit facility and term loan facility.

In addition, the origination and retention of new subscribers will depend on various factors, including, but not limited to, market availability, subscriber interest, the availability of suitable components, the negotiation of acceptable contract terms with subscribers, local permitting, licensing and regulatory compliance, and our ability to manage anticipated expansion and to hire, train and retain personnel, the financial viability of subscribers and general economic conditions.

Certain Definitions

Total Subscribers - is the aggregate number of active smart home and security subscribers at the end of a given period.

Total Monthly Revenue - or Total MR, is the average monthly total revenue recognized during the period.

Average Monthly Revenue per User - or AMRU, is Total MR divided by average monthly Total Subscribers during a given period.

Total Monthly Service Revenue - or MSR, is the contracted recurring monthly service billings to our smart home and security subscribers, based on the Total Subscribers number as of the end of a given period.

Average Monthly Service Revenue per User - or AMSRU, is Total MSR divided by Total Subscribers at the end of a given period.

Attrition Rate - is the aggregate number of canceled smart home and security subscribers during the prior 12 month period divided by the monthly weighted average number of Total Subscribers based on the Total Subscribers at the beginning and end of each month of a given period. Subscribers are considered canceled when they terminate in accordance with the terms of their contract, are terminated by us or if payment from such subscribers is deemed uncollectible (when at least four monthly billings become past due). If a sale of a service contract to third parties occurs, or a subscriber relocates but continues their service, we do not consider this as a cancellation. If a subscriber transfers their service contract to a new subscriber, we do not consider this a cancellation.

Average Subscriber Lifetime - in number of months, is 100% divided by our expected long-term annualized attrition rate (which is currently estimated at 13%) multiplied by 12 months.

Net Service Cost per Subscriber - is the average monthly service costs incurred during the period (both period and capitalized service costs), including monitoring, customer service, field service and other service support costs, less total non-recurring smart home services billings for the period divided by average monthly Total Subscribers for the same period.

Net Service Margin - is the monthly average MSR for the period, less total average net service costs for the period divided by the monthly average MSR for the period.

New Subscribers - is the aggregate number of net new smart home and security subscribers originated during a given period. This metric excludes new subscribers acquired by the transfer of a service contract from one subscriber to another.

Net Subscriber Acquisition Costs per New Subscriber - is the net cash cost to create new smart home and security subscribers during a given 12 month period divided by New Subscribers for that period. These costs include commissions, Products, installation, marketing, sales support and other allocations (general and administrative and overhead) less upfront payment received from the sale of Products associated with the initial installation, and installation fees. These costs exclude capitalized contract costs and upfront proceeds associated with contract modifications.

Total Bookings - is total monthly service revenue for New Subscribers multiplied by Average Subscriber Lifetime, plus total Product revenue to be recognized over the contract term from New Subscribers.

Total Monthly Service Revenue for New Subscribers - is the contracted recurring monthly service billings to our New Subscribers during the prior 12-month period.

Average Monthly Service Revenue per New Subscriber - is the Total Monthly Service Revenue for New Subscribers divided by New Subscribers during the prior 12-month period.

Lifetime Service Revenue per New Subscriber - is the Total Monthly Service Revenue for New Subscribers divided by New Subscribers during the prior 12-month period, multiplied by Average Subscriber Lifetime.

Lifetime Service Revenue Multiple - is the Lifetime Service Revenue per New Subscriber divided by Net Subscriber Acquisition Costs per New Subscriber.

Statement Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This earnings release includes Adjusted EBITDA, which is a supplemental measure that is not required by, or presented in accordance with, accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”).

“Adjusted EBITDA” is defined as net income (loss) before interest expense (net of interest income), income and franchise taxes and depreciation and amortization (including amortization of capitalized subscriber acquisition costs), further adjusted to exclude the effects of certain contract sales to third parties, non-capitalized subscriber acquisition costs, stock based compensation and certain unusual, non-cash, non-recurring and other items permitted in certain covenant calculations under the agreements governing our notes, the credit agreement governing our term loan and the credit agreement governing our revolving credit facility.

We believe that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA is appropriate to provide additional information to investors about the calculation of, and compliance with, certain financial covenants contained in the agreements governing the notes, and the credit agreements governing the revolving credit facility and the term loan. We caution investors that amounts presented in accordance with our definition of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similar measures disclosed by other issuers, because not all issuers and analysts calculate Adjusted EBITDA in the same manner.

Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net loss or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP or as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of our liquidity.

See the following table for a quantitative reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to Net Loss, which we believe is the most comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP.

(i)

Restructuring employee severance and termination benefits expenses.

(ii)

Excludes loan amortization costs that are included in interest expense.

(iii)

Reflects subscriber acquisition costs that are expensed as incurred because they are not directly related to the acquisition of specific subscribers. Certain other industry participants purchase subscribers through subscriber contract purchases, and as a result, may capitalize the full cost to purchase these subscriber contracts, as compared to our organic generation of new subscribers, which requires us to expense a portion of our subscriber acquisition costs under GAAP.

(iv)

Reflects non-cash compensation costs related to employee and director stock option plans. Excludes non-cash compensation costs included in non-capitalized subscriber acquisition costs.

(v)

Other Adjustments includes certain items such as product development costs, subcontracted monitoring fee savings, certain legal and professional fees, expenses associated with retention bonuses, relocation and severance payments, and certain other adjustments.

(vi)

Adjustments to eliminate the impact of the Company's adoption of Accounting Standards Codification Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers.
