Covisint Corporation Announces Fourth Quarter and Full-Year Fiscal 2016 Financial Results

DETROIT, June 06, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Covisint Corporation (Nasdaq:COVS), the leading Cloud Platform for building Identity and Internet of Things (IoT) applications, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full fiscal year ended March 31, 2016.

"Fiscal 2016 continued to be a transition year where we faced many challenges and delivered mixed results.  We achieved significant year-over-year margin improvement, driven by our transition out of the services business and the healthcare application market.  In addition, our team made significant improvement in our operating costs.  However, we are disappointed with our results for subscription revenue.  It is evident that the transition we began two years ago is taking longer than we had anticipated, particularly with regards to our effort to grow our ASR bookings to meet our objectives in subscription revenue," said Covisint Chairman and CEO, Sam Inman." 

Inman continued, "As we look out to Fiscal 2017 and beyond, we are focused on keeping our current strategic alliances and partners approach in place, while we shift our direct sales model from general territorial selling to larger, strategic teams focused on the automotive and automotive related sectors.  These teams will focus primarily on strategic use cases, where we have strong experience and have been successful expanding our footprint with existing automotive customers — while leveraging our success to penetrate new global automotive accounts."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), Covisint monitors non-GAAP measures, including non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss) per diluted share. Each of these financial measures excludes the impact of certain items (the impact of stock award compensation expense, the amortization and impairment of intangible assets and amounts incurred for capitalized internal software costs) and, therefore, has not been calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Covisint monitors these non-GAAP measures to evaluate its ongoing operational performance and enhance an overall understanding of its past financial performance. Covisint believes that these non-GAAP metrics help illustrate underlying trends in its business that could otherwise be masked by the effect of the expenses that are excluded in non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss) per diluted share. Furthermore, Covisint uses these measures to establish budgets and operational goals for managing its business and evaluating its performance. Covisint also believes that these non-GAAP measures provide additional tools for investors to use in comparing its recurring core business operating results over multiple periods against other companies in its industry.

The presentation of this non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures discussed in this press release to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is included with the financial statements contained in this press release. Management uses both GAAP and non-GAAP information in evaluating and operating its business internally and as such has determined that it is important to provide this information to investors.

Conference Call and Webcast Information

Covisint management will hold a conference call at 5:00 p.m. (Eastern time) today to discuss these results. The U.S. toll free dial-in for the conference call is 1-877-407-4018, and the international dial-in number is 1-201-689-8471. No passcode is required.
