SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Bill.com (NYSE: BILL), a leading provider of cloud-based software that simplifies, digitizes, and automates complex back-office financial operations for small and midsize businesses (SMBs), today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2021.

“We delivered record growth in fiscal 2021 as we helped SMBs across the country automate their financial operations and make billions of dollars in payments,” said René Lacerte, Bill.com CEO and Founder. “Our strategic initiatives drove strong adoption of our platform and set us up well for future opportunities. We expanded our e-payment offerings to make it easy for businesses to get paid faster, extended our reach with new strategic partners, and entered the spend management space with our acquisition of Divvy. We are building the one-stop shop platform for SMBs to manage all their financial operations and B2B spend.”

“Our organic core revenue increased 73% year-over-year driven by the strength of our platform and excellent execution against our strategic initiatives,” said John Rettig, Bill.com CFO. “We are pursuing a large, global opportunity to help millions of small businesses digitally transform their financial operations. With the strength of our organic business and the acquisition of Divvy, we believe we are on a path to extend our leadership position in serving the large SMB market.”

Financial Outlook

We are providing the following guidance for the fiscal first quarter ending September 30, 2021 and the full fiscal year ending June 30, 2022.

The financial outlook does not include any potential impact from the proposed acquisition of Invoice2go. These statements are forward-looking and actual results may differ materially.

Bill.com has not provided a reconciliation of non-GAAP net loss or non-GAAP net loss per share guidance measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures because certain items excluded from GAAP cannot be reasonably calculated or predicted at this time.

You should not rely on these forward-looking statements, as actual results may differ materially from those contemplated by these forward-looking statements as a result of such risks and uncertainties. All forward-looking statements in this press release are based on information available to us as of the date hereof. We assume no obligation to update or revise the forward-looking statements contained in this press release or the accompanying conference call because of new information, future events, or otherwise.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), this press release and the accompanying tables contain, and the conference call will contain, non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP loss from operations, non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share, basic and diluted. The non-GAAP financial information is presented for supplemental informational purposes only and is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

Investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as an analytical tool. Items excluded from non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share include stock-based compensation expense, employer payroll taxes related to employee stock-based compensation, depreciation expense, amortization of intangible assets, acquisition-related expenses, amortization of debt discount (and accretion of debt premium) and issuance costs, loss on revaluation of warrant liabilities, and income tax benefit associated with 2025 Notes. It is important to note that the particular items we exclude from, or include in, our non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the items excluded from, or included in, similar non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies in the same industry.

We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information about our financial performance, enhance the overall understanding of our past performance and future prospects and allow for greater transparency with respect to important metrics used by our management for financial and operational decision-making. We believe that these measures provide an additional tool for investors to use in comparing our core financial performance over multiple periods with other companies in our industry.

Beginning the quarter ended March 31, 2021, we changed our method of calculating certain non-GAAP financial measures by removing the adjustments related to the capitalized service costs, capitalized internal-use software, capitalized sales commissions, and the associated amortization expenses. These changes are reflected in our non-GAAP financial measures for the quarter ended June 30, 2021. In addition, our non-GAAP financial measures for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 were also adjusted to conform to the current quarter presentation. These changes are further described in the reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures below.

We adjust the following items from one or more of our non-GAAP financial measures:

Stock-based compensation expense. We exclude stock-based compensation expense, which is a non-cash expense, from certain of our non-GAAP financial measures because we believe that excluding this item provides meaningful supplemental information regarding operational performance. In particular, companies calculate stock- based compensation expenses using a variety of valuation methodologies and subjective assumptions.

Employer payroll taxes related to employee stock-based compensation. We exclude payroll tax expense related to employee stock-based transactions because we believe that excluding this item provides meaningful supplemental information regarding operational performance. In particular, this expense is dependent on the price of our common stock and other factors that are beyond our control and do not correlate to the operation of our business. Employer payroll tax expense related to employee stock-based compensation was not material for all periods prior to June 30, 2020; therefore, it was excluded from those prior periods.

Depreciation expense. We exclude depreciation expenses from certain of our non-GAAP financial measures because we believe that excluding this item provides meaningful supplemental information regarding operational performance.

Amortization of intangible assets. We exclude amortization of intangible assets from certain of our non-GAAP financial measures because we believe that excluding this non-cash expense provides meaningful supplemental information regarding our operational performance.

Acquisition-related expenses.We exclude acquisition-related expenses from certain of our non-GAAP financial measures because these costs would have not otherwise been incurred in the normal course of our business operations. In addition, we believe that acquisition-related expenses are non-recurring charges unique to a specific acquisition. Although we may engage in future acquisitions, such acquisitions and the associated acquisition-related expenses are considered unique and not comparable to other acquisitions.

Amortization of debt discount (accretion of debt premium) and issuance costs. We exclude amortization of debt discount and issuance costs associated with our issuance of convertible senior notes due 2025 and accretion of debt premium associated with our credit agreement from certain of our non-GAAP financial measures because we believe that excluding this non-cash interest expense provides meaningful supplemental information regarding our operational performance.

Loss on revaluation of warrant liabilities. We exclude loss on revaluation of warrant liabilities, which is a non-cash expense, from certain of our non-GAAP financial measures because we believe that excluding this item provides meaningful supplemental information regarding operational performance.

Income tax benefit associated with 2025 Notes and acquisition.We exclude the income tax benefit associated with our 2025 Notes and acquisition from certain of our non-GAAP financial measures because we believe that excluding this provides meaningful supplemental information regarding our operational performance.

There are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures since they exclude significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP to be recorded in our financial statements. Please see the reconciliation tables at the end of this release for the reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP results.

Free Cash Flow

Free cash flow is a non-GAAP measure that we calculate as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities, reduced by purchases of property and equipment and capitalization of internal-use software costs. We believe free cash flow is an important liquidity measure of the cash (if any) that is available, after capital expenditures, for operational expenses and investment in our business. Free cash flow is useful to investors as a liquidity measure because it measures our ability to generate or use cash. One limitation of free cash flow is that it does not reflect our future contractual commitments. Additionally, free cash flow does not represent the total increase or decrease in our cash balance for a given period. Once our business needs and obligations are met, cash can be used to maintain a strong balance sheet and invest in future growth.
