SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM) today reported results for the fiscal third quarter 2017 ended Dec. 31, 2016 (all comparisons are relative to the fiscal third quarter 2016 unless otherwise stated)1:

  • Branded revenue grew to $115.2 million, up $11.5 million, or 11 percent.
  • Scale-out tiered storage revenue increased to $39.8 million, up $4.1 million and contributing to a 26 percent YTD growth rate.
  • Total data protection revenue grew 3 percent to $83.1 million, consisting of $22.9 million in disk backup systems revenue (up 17 percent), $44.8 million in tape automation revenue (down 13 percent overall, with OEM revenue down 42 percent and branded revenue down 3 percent) and $15.4 million in devices and media revenue (up 51 percent).
  • Royalty revenue was $10.5 million, a decrease of $750,000.

"Following up on our revenue growth and improved profitability in the first half of the fiscal year, we again delivered solid results in the December quarter," said Jon Gacek, president and CEO of Quantum. "On a year-over-year basis, we generated our 22nd consecutive quarter of scale-out tiered storage revenue growth and increased total revenue, data protection sales and overall profitability for the third straight quarter. As a result of our strong execution and the leverage our financial model provides, year-to-date GAAP and non-GAAP net income also improved $29 million and $24 million, respectively, on a total revenue increase of $29 million.

"In the fourth quarter, our focus is to continue building on our momentum by providing customers with the optimal combination of high performance, low-cost capacity and ready access to meet their increasing data management demands and achieve their business or mission objectives. We are well-positioned to capitalize on the opportunities across our target markets, having expanded our product offerings, sales capabilities and ecosystem partnerships over the past nine months. As a result, we are raising our revenue and profitability guidance for fiscal 2017."

Fiscal Fourth Quarter 2017 Outlook and Updated Fiscal 2017 Guidance

Quantum provided the following guidance for the fiscal fourth quarter:

  • Total revenue of $120 million to $125 million.
  • GAAP and non-GAAP gross margin of 41-43 percent.
  • GAAP and non-GAAP operating expenses of $49 million to $50 million and $47 million to $48 million, respectively.
  • Interest expense of $2.4 million and taxes of $400,000.
  • GAAP loss per share of $0.01 and non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.00.

Quantum also updated its fiscal 2017 guidance. The company now expects:

  • Total revenue of $505 million to $510 million, an increase over its initial guidance.
  • Royalty revenue of at least $35 million.
  • GAAP and non-GAAP gross margin of approximately 42 percent.
  • GAAP and non-GAAP operating expense of approximately $201 million and approximately $192 million, respectively.
  • Interest expense of $8.0 million and taxes of approximately $1.5 million.
  • GAAP earnings per share of $0.01 to $0.02 and non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.04 to $0.05, respectively — an increase over its initial guidance on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis.

Fiscal Third Quarter 2017 Business Highlights

  • Quantum concluded definitive agreements with PNC Bank and TCW Direct Lending on a $170 million financing package. The agreement with PNC includes an $80 million revolving credit facility and an additional $20 million credit line available under an accordion feature. The agreement with TCW provides for a $50 million term loan with TCW that was drawn upon closing and a $20 million delayed draw term loan available through Dec. 31, 2017.
  • The company announced StorNext 5.4, the latest version of its award-winning StorNext® file system and data management software. StorNext 5.4 enables customers to integrate their existing public cloud storage accounts and/or third-party, object storage-based private clouds as tiers in a StorNext-managed environment. As a result, users can get all the benefits of StorNext while protecting prior investments and reducing the cost and complexity of cloud administration. Another feature provides the ability to embed asset manager, data management and data sharing applications in StorNext-powered appliances, thereby reducing the time, cost and complexity of deploying and maintaining applications.
  • Quantum introduced a new Scalar® storage platform optimized for storing and managing the ever-increasing volumes of unstructured data. The first new products based on this platform are the Scalar i6 and Scalar i3 tape libraries and the StorNext AEL6 purpose-built rich media archive appliance. The new Scalar platform offers a range of benefits, including best-in-class storage density — twice that of earlier-generation rack-mounted libraries — which enables organizations of all sizes to reduce their data center footprint and further reduce their storage costs.
  • Notable scale-out tiered storage customer wins included large deals with several leading broadcasters and postproduction companies, two police departments seeking video surveillance solutions and a broad range of organizations that turned to Quantum for help managing their growing unstructured data archives. These organizations included a major government agency, an automotive electronics supplier that is one of the leaders in self-driving technology, an international weather forecasting agency and a top medical research institute.
  • In data protection, Quantum had a series of notable DXi6900 product family wins, including million dollar-plus deals at an Asian taxation department, a major European insurance company and two big banks, as well as other large deals at a state-owned energy provider in Asia and a leading U.S. telecomm company.

"Safe Harbor" Statement: This press release contains "forward-looking" statements. All statements other than statements of historical fact are statements that could be deemed forward-looking statements. Specifically, but without limitation, statements relating to: i) our focuses and expectations for our fourth fiscal quarter; ii) all of our statements under the heading "Fiscal Fourth Quarter 2017 Outlook and Updated Fiscal 2017 Guidance" are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Safe Harbor. All forward-looking statements in this press release are based on information available to Quantum on the date hereof. These statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause Quantum's actual results to differ materially from those implied by the forward-looking statements. More detailed information about these risk factors are set forth in Quantum's periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including, but not limited to, those risks and uncertainties listed in the section entitled "Risk Factors," in Quantum's Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 3, 2016 and in Quantum's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 4, 2016. Quantum expressly disclaims any obligation to update or alter its forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by applicable law.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Quantum believes that the non-GAAP financial measures disclosed above provide useful and supplemental information to investors regarding its quarterly financial performance. Quantum management and Board of Directors use these non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate the company's business results and make operating decisions. For instance, Quantum management often makes decisions regarding staffing, future management priorities and how the company will direct future operating expenses on the basis of non-GAAP financial measures. In addition, compensation of our employees is based in part on the performance of our business based on non-GAAP operating income.

Amortization of Intangible Assets
This includes acquired intangibles such as purchased technology in connection with prior acquisitions. These expenses are not factored into management's evaluation of potential acquisitions or Quantum's performance after completion of the acquisitions because they are not related to Quantum's core operating performance. In addition, the frequency and amount of such charges can vary significantly based on the size and timing of acquisitions and the maturities of the businesses being acquired. Excluding acquisition-related charges from non-GAAP measures provides investors with a basis to compare Quantum against the performance of other companies without the variability caused by purchase accounting.

Share-Based Compensation Expense
Share-based compensation expense relates primarily to equity awards such as stock options, restricted stock units and employee stock purchase plan. Share-based compensation is a non-cash expense that varies in amount from period to period and is dependent on market forces that are often beyond Quantum's control. Management believes that non-GAAP measures adjusted for share-based compensation provide investors with a basis to measure Quantum's core performance against the performance of other companies without the variability created by share-based compensation as a result of the variety of equity awards used by other companies and the varying methodologies and assumptions used.

Restructuring Charges
Restructuring charges primarily relate to expenses associated with changes to Quantum's operating structure. Restructuring charges are excluded from non-GAAP financial measures because they are not considered core operating activities. Although Quantum has engaged in various restructuring activities in the past, each has been a discrete event based on a unique set of business objectives. Management believes that it is appropriate to exclude restructuring charges from Quantum's non-GAAP financial measures, as it enhances the ability of investors to compare Quantum's period-over-period operating results from continuing operations.

Proxy Contest and Related Costs
Proxy contest and related costs are expenses incurred to respond to activities and inquiries of VIEX Capital Advisors, LLC, including their proxy solicitation. These costs are not considered core operating activities. Management believes that it is appropriate to exclude these costs in order to provide investors the ability to compare Quantum's period-over-period operating results from continuing operations.

Crossroads Patent Litigation Costs
Crossroads patent litigation costs are expenses incurred to defend ourselves and perform other activities related to a patent infringement lawsuit filed by Crossroads Systems, Inc. These costs are excluded from non-GAAP financial measures because they are not considered core operating activities, and management believes that it is appropriate to exclude these costs in order to provide investors the ability to compare Quantum's period-over-period operating results from continuing operations.

Realtime Data Patent Litigation Costs
Realtime Data patent litigation costs are expenses incurred to defend ourselves and perform other activities related to a patent infringement lawsuit filed by Realtime Data LLC d/b/a IXO. These costs are excluded from non-GAAP financial measures because they are not considered core operating activities, and management believes that it is appropriate to exclude these costs in order to provide investors the ability to compare Quantum's period-over-period operating results from continuing operations.

Loss on Debt Extinguishment
The loss on debt extinguishment relates to specific actions undertaken during the third quarter of fiscal 2017. The loss is excluded from non-GAAP financial measures because it is not considered a core operating activity and management believes that it is appropriate to exclude the loss in order to provide investors the ability to compare Quantum's period-over-period results from continuing operations.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. They are limited in value because they exclude charges that have a material impact on the company's reported financial results and, therefore, should not be relied upon as the sole financial measures to evaluate the company. The non-GAAP financial measures are meant to supplement, and be viewed in conjunction with, GAAP financial measures. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures as provided in the tables accompanying this press release.

Note 1

In the third quarter of fiscal 2017 Quantum implemented new accounting procedures related to the accounting for costs incurred for third-party service providers. While the resulting adjustments were not material to any previously issued annual or quarterly consolidated financial statements, management concluded that revisions to the periods impacted were warranted. These adjustments have been reflected in the financials provided in this press release. Quantum will provide more detail regarding these adjustments in future SEC filings.

Important Information

Quantum Corporation (the "Company"), its directors and certain executive officers will be participants in the solicitation of proxies from stockholders in connection with the Company's Annual Meeting of Stockholders for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2016 (the "Annual Meeting"). The Company previously received a notice of nominations for the election of directors from VIEX Capital Advisors, LLC and it is possible that there may be a contested solicitation in connection with the Annual Meeting. The Company plans to file a proxy statement (the "Proxy Statement") with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") in connection with the solicitation of proxies for the Annual Meeting.

Information with respect to the holdings of the participants in the Company's common stock as of December 31, 2016 was included in materials filed with the SEC under Regulation 14A on January 12, 2017. Additional information regarding such participants, including updated information as to their direct or indirect interests, by security holdings or otherwise, will be included in the Proxy Statement and other relevant documents to be filed with the SEC in connection with the Annual Meeting. To the extent that holdings of the Company's securities change from the amounts previously disclosed, such changes will be reflected on Statements of Change in Ownership on Form 4 filed with the SEC.

Promptly after filing its definitive Proxy Statement with the SEC, the Company will mail the definitive Proxy Statement to each stockholder entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting. STOCKHOLDERS ARE URGED TO READ THE PROXY STATEMENT (INCLUDING ANY AMENDMENTS OR SUPPLEMENTS THERETO) AND ANY OTHER RELEVANT DOCUMENTS THAT THE COMPANY WILL FILE WITH THE SEC WHEN THEY BECOME AVAILABLE BECAUSE THEY WILL CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION.

Copies of the Company's definitive proxy statement, any amendments or supplements thereto and any other relevant documents filed by the Company with the SEC in connection with the Annual Meeting will also be available, free of charge, at the Company's website (www.quantum.com) or by writing to Investor Relations, Quantum Corporation, 224 Airport Parkway, Suite 550, San Jose, CA 95110.
