This compares with cash flow from operations of $20.8 million and free cash flow* of $18.4 million, after taking into consideration $4.1 million of capital expenditures and $1.6 million of payments for expenses incurred in connection with the FTC litigation for the third quarter of 2015.

Chief Executive Officer and President Hilary Schneider said, “LifeLock delivered solid financial results in our third quarter with strong annual retention rates, continued adoption of our premium products and strength in our enterprise business." Schneider continued: “We also reached a number of important strategic milestones that provide the foundation for continued and meaningful product differentiation including the completion of our flexible and extensible Identity Theft Protection or ITPS platform, the launch of our new LifeLock mobile app and our IDENTITY mobile app that helps consumers simplify the management of their digital identity."

  • We will be hosting an Investor and Analyst Day on February 23, 2017 in Menlo Park, CA.

Guidance:

As of November 1, 2016, we are initiating guidance for our fourth quarter of 2016 as well as updating guidance for the full year 2016.

  • Fourth Quarter 2016 Guidance: Total revenue is expected to be in the range of $172 million to $174 million. Adjusted net income per diluted share is expected to be in the range of $0.40 to $0.42 based on approximately 99 million fully diluted weighted-average shares outstanding and a cash tax rate of 3%. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $42 million to $44 million.
  • Full Year 2016 Guidance: Total revenue is expected to be in the range of $666 million to $668 million. Adjusted net income per diluted share is expected to be in the range of $0.76 to $0.78 based on approximately 98 million fully diluted weighted-average shares outstanding and a cash tax rate of 3%. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $86 million to $88 million. Free cash flow is expected to be in the range of $83 million to $88 million.

We have not reconciled adjusted net income per diluted share guidance to net income (loss) per diluted share guidance or adjusted EBITDA guidance to net income (loss) guidance because we do not provide guidance for stock-based compensation expense, provision for income taxes, interest income, interest expense, other income and expenses, depreciation expense, amortization of intangible assets, acquisition expenses, legal reserves and settlements, or income tax (benefit) expense, which are reconciling items between net income (loss) and adjusted net income and net income (loss) and adjusted EBITDA. As these items that impact net income (loss) are out of our control and/or cannot be predicted with reasonable certainty, we are unable to provide such guidance. Accordingly, reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to net income (loss) is not available without unreasonable effort. For a reconciliation of these historical non-GAAP financial measures to net income (loss), which provides information about the historical significance of the reconciling items, see the reconciliation tables included in this press release.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains “forward-looking” statements, as that term is defined under the federal securities laws, including statements regarding our expected total revenue, adjusted net income per diluted share and adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2016 and for fiscal year 2016, and free cash flow for fiscal year 2016. These forward-looking statements are based on our current assumptions, expectations, and beliefs and are subject to substantial risks, uncertainties, assumptions, and changes in circumstances that may cause our actual results, performance, or achievements to differ materially from those expressed or implied in any forward-looking statement.

The risks and uncertainties referred to above include, but are not limited to, risks associated with our ability to maintain profitability on an annual basis; our ability to protect our customers’ confidential information; our ability to maintain and enhance our brand recognition and reputation; the competitive nature of the industries in which we conduct our business; our ability to retain our existing customers and attract new customers; our ability to improve our services and develop and introduce new services with broad appeal; our ability to maintain existing and secure new relationships with strategic partners; regulatory compliance and litigation outcome; and other “Risk Factors” set forth in our most recent SEC filings.

Further information on these and other factors that could affect our financial results and the forward-looking statements in this press release is included in our SEC filings, including our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015, particularly under the captions “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” and our Forms 10-Q. Copies of these documents are available on our Investor Relations website at http://investor.lifelock.com/ or the SEC's website at www.sec.gov.

We assume no obligation and do not intend to update these forward-looking statements, except as required by law.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Our reported results include certain non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted share, adjusted EBITDA, and free cash flow. We calculate adjusted net income as net income (loss) excluding amortization of acquired intangible assets, stock-based compensation, income tax benefits and expenses resulting from changes in our deferred tax assets, and acquisition related expenses. We calculate adjusted net income per diluted share by dividing our adjusted net income by the weighted-average diluted shares outstanding. We calculate adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) excluding depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, interest expense, interest income, other income (expense), income tax (benefit) expense, and acquisition related expenses. For the three and nine-months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, we have also excluded from adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted share and adjusted EBITDA expenses related to the FTC litigation and the impact of a legal reserve for the settlement of a derivative lawsuit. We believe that the exclusion of certain items of income and expense from net income (loss) in calculating adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted share and adjusted EBITDA is useful because the amount of such income or expense may not directly correlate to the underlying operational performance of our business and/or such income and expense can vary significantly between periods.

We define free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities less net cash used in investing activities for acquisitions of property and equipment. For the three- and nine-months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, we have added back to net cash provided by operating activities cash paid for expenses and legal settlements related to the FTC litigation.

We have included adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted share, and adjusted EBITDA in this press release because they are key measures used by us 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, the exclusion of certain expenses in calculating adjusted net income and adjusted EBITDA can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of our core business. Additionally, adjusted EBITDA is a key financial measure used in determining management’s incentive compensation.

We have included free cash flow in this press release because we believe it typically presents a more conservative measure of cash flow as purchases of property and equipment are necessary components of ongoing operations. For the three and nine-months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, we have added back legal settlements and expenses related to the FTC litigation because the amount of such cash flow may not directly correlate to the underlying operational performance of our business and can vary significantly between periods. We believe that this non-GAAP financial measure is useful in evaluating our business because free cash flow reflects the cash surplus available to fund the expansion of our business, excluding expenses related to the FTC litigation and eventual settlement, after payment of capital expenditures relating to the necessary components of ongoing operations. We also believe that the use of free cash flow provides consistency and comparability with our past financial performance and facilitates period-to-period comparisons of operations.

Although adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted share, adjusted EBITDA, and free cash flow are frequently used by investors in their evaluations of companies, these non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with GAAP. Because of these limitations, these non-GAAP financial measures should be considered alongside other financial performance measures. Further, these non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and are not necessarily comparable to similarly-titled measures presented by other companies.

For a reconciliation of these historical non-GAAP financial measures to net income (loss), which provides information about the historical significance of the reconciling items, see the reconciliation tables included in this press release.
