Datto Announces First Quarter 2022 Financial Results

FHTX

First quarter subscription revenue grew 18% year-over-year to $160.5 million and 20% in constant currency

ARR grew 20% year-over-year to $689.3 million

Datto Holding Corp. (Datto) (NYSE: MSP), the leading global provider of security and cloud-based software solutions purpose-built for Managed Service Providers (MSPs), today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022.

“We had a strong start to 2022, achieving 20% subscription revenue growth in constant currency terms for the first time since going public,” said Tim Weller, Datto’s Chief Executive Officer. “We added 700 net new MSP partners during the quarter, our best quarter of partner additions in over two years, and we continued to expand ARR per MSP. Our security-first product offerings are clearly resonating in today’s market. Finally, we entered into a definitive agreement for Kaseya to acquire Datto, in an all-cash transaction in which Datto stockholders will receive $35.50 per share, valuing Datto at approximately $6.2 billion, validating Datto’s leading position and the large opportunity in the MSP channel.”

Recent Highlights

  • Announced that the company entered into a definitive agreement for Kaseya to acquire Datto in an all-cash transaction in which Datto stockholders will receive $35.50 per share, valuing Datto at approximately $6.2 billion. The acquisition is subject to regulatory approvals in addition to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions and is expected to close in the second half of 2022.
  • Ended the quarter with more than 19,200 MSP partners, a net increase of 700 from the previous quarter.
  • Expanded the number of MSPs contributing over $100,000 ARR to 1,500, a 30% increase from 1,150 at March 31, 2021.
  • Launched two continuity solutions: i) the next generation SIRIS 5 product featuring up to 4X the performance, and ii) Cloud Continuity for PCs, improved for today’s dynamic, hybrid workforce. Both all-in-one backup and recovery solutions empower MSPs with best-in-class continuity for their small and medium business (SMB) clients.
  • Hosted an MSP Technology Day focused on addressing security for SaaS applications. The virtual event attracted more than 3,800 registrants.
  • Announced that DattoCon, the largest open-ecosystem MSP-centric event, will take place in person September 11-13, 2022, in Washington, DC.

Second Quarter and Full Year 2022 Financial Outlook

Given the pending acquisition by Kaseya, which is subject to regulatory approvals in addition to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions, Datto is withdrawing its prior guidance for full year 2022 and will not be providing guidance going forward.

These statements may be preceded by, followed by or include the words ‘‘anticipate,’’ ‘‘estimate,’’ ‘‘expect,’’ ‘‘project,’’ ‘‘plan,’’ ‘‘intend,’’ ‘‘believe,’’ ‘‘may,’’ ‘‘will,’’ ‘‘should,’’ ‘‘can have,’’ ‘‘likely’’ and the negatives thereof and other words and terms of similar meaning. Forward-looking statements include all statements that are not historical facts. Accordingly, there are or will be important factors that could cause actual outcomes or results to differ materially from those indicated in these statements, including: uncertainties associated with the proposed acquisition of Datto by Kaseya; the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstances that could give rise to the termination of the related Merger Agreement; the inability to complete the proposed acquisition due to the failure to satisfy conditions to completion of the proposed acquisition, including the receipt of applicable approvals and clearances by government authorities; risks related to disruption of management’s attention from our ongoing business operations due to the proposed acquisition; the effect of the announcement of the proposed acquisition on our relationships with our customers, operating results and business generally; the risk that the proposed acquisition will not be consummated in a timely manner or at all; the costs of the proposed acquisition if the proposed acquisition is not consummated; restrictions imposed on our business during the pendency of the proposed acquisition; our ability to recruit, retain and develop key employees and management personnel, including in light of the proposed acquisition; the continuing impacts on our operations and financial condition from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic; our ability to effectively compete; fluctuations in our operating results; our ability to sustain cash flows and profitability; our ability to attract new managed service provider (“MSP”) partners; our ability to sell additional products and subscriptions to our MSP partners; the recognition of revenue from our subscription offerings; the strength of the small and medium businesses (“SMB”) information technology (“IT”) market; our ability to manage the ongoing growth of our business; the risks associated with our current and future international operations, including the risks of expansion into new international markets; the impact of volatility in the global economy; including heightened inflation, rising interest rates and the effects from the war in Ukraine; the ability of our MSP partners to sell our products; possible data losses or breaches experienced by MSP partners or their SMB customers using our products or solutions; the risks associated with defects or vulnerabilities in our or our third-parties’ software, solutions, infrastructure and hardware; the impact of natural disasters, health pandemics, terrorism or other catastrophic events; and other factors disclosed in the section entitled “Risk Factors” of our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and subsequent filings with the SEC.

There is no assurance that any forward-looking statements will materialize. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, which reflect expectations only as of this date. Datto undertakes no obligation to publicly update or review any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to our results determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), we believe that the non-GAAP financial measures of Non-GAAP Subscription Cost of Revenue, Non-GAAP Device Cost of Revenue, Non-GAAP Professional Services and Other Cost of Revenue, Non-GAAP Depreciation and Amortization in Cost of Revenue, Non-GAAP Cost of Revenue, Non-GAAP Gross Profit, Non-GAAP Gross Margin, Non-GAAP Sales and Marketing expense, Non-GAAP Research and Development expense, Non-GAAP General and Administrative expense, Non-GAAP Depreciation and Amortization in Operating Expenses, Non-GAAP Operating Expenses, Non-GAAP Income from Operations, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Net Income Per Share, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, and Free Cash Flow are useful in evaluating our operating performance and liquidity, as applicable. Certain of these measures exclude interest and other (income) expense, net, loss on extinguishment of debt, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, restructuring expense and transaction related and other expense. In addition, for Non-GAAP Net Income we utilize a non-GAAP tax rate of 25%, which we believe reflects our normalized effective tax rate. Non-GAAP Gross Margin and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are calculated by dividing Non-GAAP Gross Profit and Adjusted EBITDA, as applicable, by revenues. We believe that non-GAAP financial information, when taken collectively, may be helpful to investors because it provides consistency and comparability with past financial performance and assists in comparisons with other companies, some of which use similar non-GAAP financial information to supplement their GAAP results. The non-GAAP financial information is presented for supplemental informational purposes only, and should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with GAAP, and may be different from similarly-titled non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

Reconciliation tables of the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures to the non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release are included with the financial tables at the end of this press release.
