(Instructure) (NYSE: INST ), the makers of the Canvas Learning Management System, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2021.

"During the year, we added over 800 new customers, a 14% increase, as we continued to gain share across our key markets. We delivered 109% net revenue retention for the year, as our clients took advantage of the expanded set of ed tech tools available on the Instructure Learning Platform. Our strong growth trajectory is supported by ongoing momentum in both new logo and cross sell wins, both domestically and internationally. Looking ahead, we will continue to make disciplined investments in sales and innovation to reinforce our position at the center of the teaching and learning ecosystem and extend our platform into multi-billion dollar adjacent markets. We look forward to bringing more value to our clients, partners and shareholders in the months and years ahead." Fourth Quarter Financial Highlights: Allocated Combined Receipts*, or ACR, of $111.4 million, an increase of 23% year over year Operating loss of $5.4 million, or negative 4.9% of revenue, and Non-GAAP operating income* of $40.7 million, or 36.5% of ACR GAAP net loss of $20.7 million and Adjusted EBITDA* of $41.7 million, or 37.4% of ACR Cash flow from operations of negative $3.7 million and Adjusted Unlevered Free Cash Flow* of $4.0 million Full Year 2021 Financial Highlights: GAAP Revenue of $405.4 million, an increase of 34% year over year ACR* of $414.7 million, an increase of 28% year over year Operating loss of $46.9 million, or negative 11.6% of revenue, and Non-GAAP operating income* of $143.7 million, or 34.7% of ACR GAAP net loss of $88.7 million and Adjusted EBITDA* of $146.7 million, or 35.4% of ACR Cash flow from operations of $105.1 million and Adjusted Unlevered Free Cash Flow* of $168.7 million *See "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" for information regarding the Company's use of non-GAAP financial measures as well as reconciliations to the most closely comparable GAAP measures in this press release. Business and Operating Highlights: In October, Newport News public schools in Virginia, a Canvas client, added MasteryConnect as their student assessment management system. The relationship builds on our statewide Virtual Virginia contract. By directly addressing learning loss and providing accurate data about students' academic progress, MasteryConnect will empower Newport News public schools to make more informed decisions on how to best address learning needs and differentiate instruction. In November, Australian Catholic University (ACU) selected Canvas to replace their Moodle system. After a comprehensive competitive tender process, ACU selected Canvas and Impact as the foundation for their next-generation digital ecosystem to underpin ACU Online, the university's recently launched fully online education portfolio. In November, we announced the acquisition of Kimono (Elevate Data Sync), our secure data syncing solution. Adding Elevate Data Sync to the Instructure Learning Platform accelerates our plans to provide broad support and deeper integration points to the platform for thousands of ed tech providers globally, further empowering schools and higher education institutions to craft the digital learning environment that meets the unique needs of their students. In December, Walden University selected Canvas for its 40,000 student population because of its superior user experience and flexibility at scale, while providing data access and a robust API. The deal also included Impact to help accelerate Walden's transition from Blackboard to Canvas while providing continuity with previous functionality. In January 2022, we announced the launch of a new channel partner program, which we expect will allow Instructure to expand rapidly to new international markets and address the complex educational needs of higher education and K-12 institutions worldwide by providing them access to its Instructure Learning Platform. The program is specifically tailored to assist partners in emerging markets and key countries where educational institutions are looking for more robust, flexible solutions to the unique learning challenges facing students today. Business Outlook Based on information as of today, February 17, 2022, the Company is issuing the following financial guidance. First Quarter Fiscal 2022: ACR* is expected to be in the range of $109.1 million to $110.1 million Non-GAAP operating income* is expected to be in the range of $36.8 million to $37.8 million Adjusted EBITDA* is expected to be in the range of $37.9 million to $38.9 million Non-GAAP net income* is expected to be $33.0 million to $34.0 million Full Year 2022: ACR* is expected to be in the range of $456.7 million to $460.7 million Non-GAAP operating income* is expected to be in the range of $157.5 million to $161.5 million Adjusted EBITDA* is expected to be in the range of $162.1 million to $166.1 million Non-GAAP net income* is expected to be $140.9 million to $144.9 million Adjusted unlevered free cash flow* is expected to be in the range of $183.0 million to $187.0 million *ACR, Non-GAAP operating income, Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and adjusted unlevered free cash flow are non-GAAP measures. See "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" for a reconciliation of ACR to the most closely comparable GAAP measure. Instructure is unable to provide guidance, or a reconciliation, for operating loss and net loss, the most closely comparable GAAP measures with respect to non-GAAP operating income, Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and adjusted unlevered free cash flow because Instructure cannot provide a meaningful or accurate calculation or estimation of certain reconciling items without unreasonable effort. This is due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliation, including stock-based compensation and amortization of acquisition related intangibles. Thus, Instructure is unable to present a quantitative reconciliation of non-GAAP guidance to GAAP guidance because such information is not available. Conference Call Information Instructure's management team will hold a conference call to discuss our fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2021 financial results today, February 17, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. ET.

We amplify the power of teaching and elevate the learning process, leading to improved student outcomes. Today, Instructure supports more than 30 million educators and learners at nearly 7,000 organizations around the world. Non-GAAP Financial Measures Instructure has provided in this press release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"). In addition to Instructure's results determined in accordance with GAAP, Instructure believes the following non-GAAP measures are useful in evaluating its operating performance and liquidity. Instructure believes 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. A reconciliation of Instructure's historical non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures has been provided in the financial statement tables included in this press release, and investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation. ACR. We define ACR as the combined receipts of our Company and companies that we have acquired allocated to the period of service delivery. We calculate ACR as the sum of (i) revenue and (ii) the impact of fair value adjustments to acquired unearned revenue related to Thoma Bravo's acquisition of Instructure (the "Take-Private Transaction") and the Certica Holdings, LLC ("Certica"), Eesysoft Software International B.V. (which was rebranded to "Impact by Instructure" or "Impact" subsequent to acquisition), and Kimono LLC (which was rebranded to "Elevate Data Sync" subsequent to acquisition) acquisitions where we do not believe such adjustments are reflective of our ongoing operations. Management uses this measure to evaluate organic growth of the business period over period, as if the Company had operated as a single entity and excluding the impact of acquisitions or adjustments due to purchase accounting. Non-GAAP Operating Income. We define non-GAAP operating income as loss from operations excluding the impact of stock-based compensation, restructuring, transaction and sponsor related costs, amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, and the impact of fair value adjustments to acquired unearned revenue relating to the Take-Private Transaction and the Certica, Impact and Elevate Data Sync acquisitions that we do not believe are reflective of our ongoing operations. We believe non-GAAP operating income is useful in evaluating our operating performance compared to that of other companies in our industry, as this metric generally eliminates the effects of certain items that may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to overall operating performance. Non-GAAP Net Income. We define non-GAAP net income as net loss excluding the impact of stock-based compensation, amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, the impact of fair value adjustments to acquired unearned revenue relating to the Take-Private Transaction and the Certica, Impact and Elevate Data Sync acquisitions, and restructuring, transaction and sponsor related costs that we do not believe are reflective of our ongoing operations. Basic non-GAAP net income per common share attributable to common stockholders is computed by dividing non-GAAP net income attributable to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted non-GAAP net income per common share attributable to common stockholders is computed by giving effect to all potential dilutive common stock equivalents outstanding for the period. Adjusted EBITDA. EBITDA is defined as earnings before debt-related costs, including interest and loss on debt extinguishment, provision (benefit) for taxes, depreciation, and amortization. We further adjust EBITDA to exclude certain items of a significant or unusual nature, including stock-based compensation, restructuring, transaction and sponsor related costs, amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, and the impact of fair value adjustments to acquired unearned revenue relating to the Take-Private Transaction and the Certica, Impact and Elevate Data Sync acquisitions. Although we exclude the amortization of acquisition-related intangibles from this non-GAAP measure, management believes that it is important for investors to understand that such intangible assets were recorded as part of purchase accounting and contribute to revenue generation. Free Cash Flow, Unlevered Free Cash Flow and Adjusted Unlevered Free Cash Flow. We define free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities less purchases of property and equipment and intangible assets, net of proceeds from disposals of property and equipment. We define unlevered free cash flow as free cash flow adjusted for cash paid for interest on outstanding debt and cash settled stock-based compensation. We define adjusted unlevered free cash flow as unlevered free cash flow adjusted for restructuring, transaction and sponsor related costs paid in cash. We believe free cash flow and adjusted unlevered free cash flow facilitate period-to-period comparisons of liquidity. We consider free cash flow and adjusted unlevered free cash flow to be important measures because they measure the amount of cash we generate and reflect changes in working capital. Non-GAAP Cost of Revenue and Non-GAAP Operating Expenses. We define non-GAAP cost of revenue and non-GAAP operating expenses as GAAP cost of revenue and GAAP operating expenses, respectively, excluding the impact of stock-based compensation, restructuring, transaction and sponsor related costs, and amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, that we do not believe are reflective of our ongoing operations. Non-GAAP Gross Profit. We define non-GAAP gross profit as gross profit excluding the impact of stock-based compensation, restructuring, transaction and sponsor related costs, amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, and fair value adjustments to deferred revenue in connection with purchase accounting, that we do not believe are reflective of our ongoing operations.
