ServiceSource Reports Third Quarter 2019 Financial Results

Total Revenue of $53.4 million

GAAP Net Loss of $4.4 million; Non-GAAP Net Loss of $0.7 million

Adjusted EBITDA of $1.1 million

DENVER, Oct. 29, 2019 – ServiceSource (NASDAQ: SREV), the digital customer journey experience company, today announced financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2019.

“We had a solid third quarter with improved focus, execution and results throughout the business,” said Gary B. Moore, Chairman and CEO of ServiceSource. “We grew revenue and expanded non-GAAP gross margins sequentially from last quarter, while strong expense discipline across the organization drove positive Adjusted EBITDA. Our delivery and global account management teams performed well on behalf of our clients, enabling year-over-year growth at the majority of our largest relationships. Importantly, we also made good strides improving our sales activity compared to the second quarter. As a result of our go-to-market organizational realignment, we enhanced our sales pipeline, generated stronger bookings momentum, secured a great multi-million dollar new logo, and won expansions with several key accounts. We also continued to make important progress on our strategic initiatives, which are foundational to our long-term value creation roadmap.”

“We are pleased by the results we delivered in the third quarter, as we further differentiated our solutions in the marketplace, enhanced the value we provide to our clients, and expanded many of our loyal and long-tenured relationships,” said Richard G. Walker, CFO of ServiceSource. “Disciplined execution and operational rigor allowed us to exceed our expectations for the quarter. On a sequential basis, we grew revenue 2.0% and favorably reduced our non-GAAP cost of revenue and operating expenses by 2.2%, resulting in Adjusted EBITDA of $1.1 million. We ended the third quarter with a debt-free balance sheet, $25.4 million of cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash, and generated positive free cash flow of $0.6 million, prior to the impact of a one-time legal settlement. Given our performance in the third quarter, current conditions in the markets we serve, and ongoing actions to optimize our portfolio, we affirm the full-year financial outlook we provided on August 7th, 2019. And while we are encouraged by a quarter of demonstrable progress, we remain keenly focused on our longer-term transformation objectives and value-enhancing priorities.”
