Item 2.02  Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

 

On February 2, 2021, Manhattan Associates, Inc. (“we”, “our”, or the “Company”) issued a press release providing its financial results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2020. A copy of this press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1. Pursuant to General Instruction B.2 of Form 8-K, this exhibit is “furnished” and not “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures in the Press Release

The press release includes, as additional information regarding our operating results, our adjusted operating income and margin, adjusted income tax provision, adjusted net income, adjusted diluted earnings per share and certain adjusted cost measures (collectively, “adjusted results”), which variously exclude the impact of equity-based compensation and acquisition-related costs, and the related income tax effects of these items. We have developed our internal reporting, compensation and planning systems using these additional financial measures.

These various measures are not in accordance with, or alternatives for, financial measures calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”) and may be different from similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be used as a substitute for, or considered superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Non-GAAP measures used in the press release exclude the impact of the items described above for the following reasons:

 

 

Equity-based compensation expense typically does not require cash settlement by the Company. We do not include this expense when assessing our operating performance and believe our peers also typically present non-GAAP results that exclude equity-based compensation expense. We similarly exclude the tax benefits or deficiencies of vested stock awards caused by differences in the amount deductible for tax purposes related to the stock award from the compensation expense recorded for financial reporting purposes.

 

 

From time to time, we incur acquisition-related costs consisting primarily of (i) accounting and legal expenses, whether or not we ultimately consummate a proposed acquisition, (ii) certain unusual costs, such as employee retention benefits, resulting from pre-acquisition arrangements and (iii) amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets. These costs are difficult to predict and, if and when incurred, generally are not expenses associated with our core operations. We exclude these costs and the related income tax effects from our internal assessments of our operating performance and believe our peers also typically present non-GAAP results that exclude similar acquisition-related costs.

 

We believe reporting adjusted results facilitates investors’ understanding of our historical operating trends because it provides supplemental measurement information in evaluating the operating results of our business. We also believe that adjusted results provide a basis for comparisons to other companies in the industry and enable investors to evaluate our operating performance in a manner consistent with our internal basis of measurement. Management refers to adjusted results in making operating decisions because we believe they provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our

2

 


operational performance and our ability to invest in research and development and fund acquisitions and capital expenditures. In addition, adjusted results facilitate management’s internal comparisons to our historical operating results and comparisons to competitors’ operating results.

Further, we rely on adjusted results as primary measures to review and assess the operating performance of our Company and our management team in connection with our executive compensation and bonus plans.

Manhattan Associates currently intends to publish in each quarterly earnings release certain expectations with respect to future financial performance. Those statements, including the guidance provided above, are forward looking. Actual results may differ materially. See our cautionary note regarding “forward-looking statements” below. We note in particular that the severity, duration and ultimate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic are difficult to predict at this time. In addition, those statements do not reflect the potential impact of mergers, acquisitions or other business combinations that may be completed after the date of the release.

Manhattan Associates will make its earnings release and published expectations available on the investor relations section of the Manhattan Associates website at ir.manh.com. Following publication of this earnings release, any expectations with respect to future financial performance contained in this release, including the guidance above, should be considered historical only, and Manhattan Associates disclaims any obligation to update them.

 

 


 

 

 

CONFERENCE CALL

The Company’s conference call regarding its fourth quarter and twelve months ended December 31, 2020, financial results will be held today, February 2, 2021, at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time. The Company will also discuss its business and expectations for the year and next quarter in additional detail during the call. We invite investors to a live webcast of the conference call through the Investor Relations section of the Manhattan Associates website at ir.manh.com. To listen to the live webcast, please go to the website at least 15 minutes before the call to download and install any necessary audio software.

Those who cannot listen to the live broadcast may access a replay shortly after the call by dialing +1.855.859.2056 in the U.S. and Canada, or +1.404.537.3406 outside the U.S., and entering the conference identification number 9296408 or via the web at ir.manh.com. The phone replay will be available for two weeks after the call, and the Internet webcast will be available until Manhattan Associates’ first quarter 2021 earnings release.

GAAP VERSUS NON-GAAP PRESENTATION

The Company provides adjusted operating income and margin, adjusted income tax provision, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share in this press release as additional information regarding the Company’s historical and projected operating results. These measures are not in accordance with, or alternatives to, GAAP, and may be different from similarly titled non-GAAP measures used by other companies. The Company believes the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures facilitates investors’ ability to understand and compare the Company’s results and guidance, because the measures provide supplemental information in evaluating the operating results of its business, as distinct from results that include items not indicative of ongoing operating results, and because the Company believes its peers typically publish similar non-GAAP measures. This release should be read in conjunction with the Company’s Form 8-K earnings release filing for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2020.

Non-GAAP adjusted operating income and margin, adjusted income tax provision, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share exclude the impact of equity-based compensation, acquisition-related costs and the amortization of these costs, and (from time to time) restructuring charges – all net of income tax effects. We include reconciliations of the


 

 

 

Company’s GAAP financial measures to non-GAAP adjustments in the supplemental information attached to this release.

This press release contains “forward-looking statements” relating to Manhattan Associates, Inc.  Forward-looking statements in this press release include, without limitation, the information set forth under “2021 Guidance,” any statements about the future effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business, customers or the global economy, our business prospects following the pandemic, statements we make about market adoption of our cloud-based solution and other statements identified by words such as “may,” “expect,” “forecast,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “could,” “seek,” “project,” “estimate,” and similar expressions. Prospective investors are cautioned that any of those forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks and uncertainties, and that actual results may differ materially from those contemplated by those forward-looking statements. Among the important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated by those forward-looking statements are: the risk that the duration and severity of the COVID-19 pandemic, and its ultimate effects on the global economy, our customers and our business, may be worse than expected; risks related to transitioning our business from a traditional perpetual license software company (generally hosted by our customers on their own premises and equipment) to a subscription/cloud-based software-as-a service model; disruption in the retail sector; the possible effect of new U.S. tariffs on imports from other countries (and possible responsive tariffs on U.S. exports by other countries) on international commerce; delays in product development; competitive and pricing pressures; software errors and information technology failures, disruption and security breaches; risks related to our products’ technology and customer implementations; and the other risk factors set forth in Item 1A of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, and in Item 1A of Part II in subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. Manhattan Associates undertakes no obligation to update or revise forward-looking statements to reflect changed assumptions, the occurrence of unanticipated events or changes in future operating results.

(a)

Adjusted results exclude all equity-based compensation to facilitate comparison with our peers and because it typically does not require cash settlement. As explained in our Current Report on Form 8-K filed today with the SEC, we do not include this expense when assessing our operating performance. We do not receive a GAAP tax benefit for a portion of our equity-based compensation, mainly due to Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code, which limits tax deductions for compensation granted to certain executives. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act further increased those limitations. Thus, in the fourth quarter of 2019, we changed from applying an overall effective rate in our tax adjustment to using the actual tax benefit for equity-based compensation included in our GAAP results after considering the impact of non-deductible equity-based compensation.

(b)

Adjustments represent the excess tax benefits and tax deficiencies of the equity awards vested during the period. Excess tax benefits (deficiencies) occur when the amount deductible on our tax return for an equity award is more (less) than the cumulative compensation cost recognized for financial reporting purposes. As discussed above, we excluded equity-based compensation from adjusted non-GAAP results to be consistent with other companies in the software industry and for the other reasons explained in

 

 


 

our Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC. Therefore, we also excluded the related tax benefit (expense) generated upon their vesting.

 

(c)

Adjustments represent purchased intangibles amortization from a prior acquisition. We exclude that amortization from adjusted results to facilitate comparison with our peers, to facilitate comparisons of the results of our core operations from period to period and for the other reasons explained in our Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC.

SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION

1.

Corporate Response to COVID-19:

 

Regarding the impact of the novel coronavirus disease (“COVID-19”) pandemic, we remain cautious about the global recovery, which we expect to be slow and protracted. In 2020, we experienced solid demand for our cloud-based supply chain and omnichannel commerce solutions and our competitive win rates remain strong. In May, we launched Manhattan Active® Warehouse Management, the next generation of Warehouse Management solutions. We have rearchitected our warehouse management solution from the ground up as a cloud-native, microservices based, versionless application. The reception has been positive and pipeline opportunities continue to build. Our solutions are mission critical, supporting large and complex global supply chains. While we are experiencing strong demand and expect continued growth for our Cloud solutions, sales cycles could be extended as customers and prospects continue to evaluate our industry leading, modern solutions, including Manhattan Active Warehouse Management. Our Professional Services revenue for the year ended December 31, 2020, is approximately 16% lower, and excluding billed travel, approximately 13% lower than the year ended December 31, 2019, as clients delayed projects due to COVID-19. We have had no notable cancellations in 2020. For 2021, we expect Services revenue to grow fueled by Cloud revenue growth. We expect Q1 2021 Services revenue to decrease against an all-time record Q1 2020 comparison. While COVID-19 could create some near-term fluctuations, we are forecasting for improving year over year services growth for the remaining balance of 2021.
