This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210504006172/en/

“McAfee achieved significant increases in revenue, subscribers, profitability and cash flow to start Fiscal 2021. We continue to secure our customers’ ever-increasing digital footprint as people are living more of their lives online. This accelerating transformation combined with our market leading capabilities drove 25% year-over-year consumer revenue growth and an additional 885,000 net new direct-to-consumer subscribers in Q1. I am very pleased with our team’s continued execution across all regions,” said Peter Leav, McAfee’s President and Chief Executive Officer.

On March 8 th, 2021, McAfee announced the pending sale of certain assets together with certain liabilities of our Enterprise business segment (substantially all of our “Enterprise Business”). For presentation purposes related to this announcement, the related assets, liabilities and financial results of the Enterprise Business were classified as discontinued operations in our condensed consolidated financial statements and are thus excluded from continuing operations for all periods presented. Moving forward McAfee will operate as one reportable segment.

  • Net revenue was $442 million, reflecting a 25% growth year-over-year
  • Net Income of $83 million or a Net Income Margin of 19%, as compared to $8 million or a Net Income Margin of 2% in the year ago period
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $199 million or a 45% Adjusted EBITDA Margin, inclusive of approximately $22 million stranded costs

First Quarter Fiscal 2021 Financial Highlights from Continuing and Discontinued Operations

Commenting on the Company’s financial results, Venkat Bhamidipati, McAfee’s Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer added, “Continued strong demand for our consumer security offerings in the quarter, along with our laser focus on operational discipline, resulted in 25% year-over-year growth in Adjusted EBITDA and 35% year-over-year growth in unlevered free cashflow generation.”

McAfee provides the following expected financial guidance for continuing operations for the quarter ending June 26, 2021:

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure, and should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, information provided in accordance with GAAP. We are not able to forecast net income (loss), the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable efforts due to the high variability and difficulty in predicting certain items that affect net income (loss) including, but not limited to, interest expense and other, net, provision for income tax expense, foreign exchange gain (loss), net and equity-based compensation expense, any of which may be significant. Our forward-looking guidance regarding adjusted EBITDA should not be used to predict our future net income (loss), as the difference between the two measures varies as a result of these and other items.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

In addition to McAfee’s results which are determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), the Company believes the following non-GAAP measures presented in this press release and discussed on the related teleconference call are useful in evaluating its operating performance: adjusted operating income, adjusted operating income margin, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, adjusted net income margin, adjusted earnings per share (“EPS”) and unlevered free cash flow. Certain of these non-GAAP measures exclude equity-based compensation, depreciation and amortization expense, transformation and transition expense, restructuring expense, interest expense and other, net, provision for income tax expense, foreign exchange (gain) and loss, income or loss from discontinued operations, net of taxes, and other costs we do not believe are reflective of our ongoing operations. McAfee believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are provided to enhance the reader’s understanding of our past financial performance and our prospects for the future. McAfee’s management team uses these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing McAfee’s performance, as well as in planning and forecasting future periods. 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 is provided herein for each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable financial measure stated in accordance with GAAP. Readers are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

Forward-Looking Statements

In addition to historical consolidated financial information, certain statements in this press release and on the related teleconference call may contain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning U.S. federal securities laws that involve substantial risks and uncertainties. All statements other than statements of historical fact included in this press release and on the related teleconference call are forward-looking statements. These statements may include words such as “anticipate,” “estimate,” “expect,” “project,” “plan,” “intend,” “believe,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “can have,” “likely” and other words and terms of similar meaning in connection with any discussion of the timing or nature of future operating or financial performance or other events. For example, all statements McAfee makes relating to its estimated and projected financial results or its plans and objectives for future operations, growth initiatives, or strategies; the estimated timing of the closing of the pending sale of the Enterprise Business or the expected use of proceeds therefrom; the impact of the pending sale of the Enterprise Business on McAfee’s Consumer business; and McAfee’s plans and objectives for future operations, growth initiatives, or strategies are forward-looking statements. All forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from those that McAfee expected. Specific factors that could cause such a difference include, but are not limited to: delays in obtaining required regulatory approvals or the satisfaction of other closing conditions; the effectiveness and efficiency of any separation activities as a result of the pending sale of the Enterprise Business; the timing of the declaration of a special dividend, which is based on a number of assumptions regarding the realizable net cash proceeds from the pending sale of the Enterprise Business and other cash flow items; the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic; McAfee’s ability to adapt to rapid technological change, evolving industry standards and changing customer needs, requirements or preferences; the impact on McAfee’s business of a network or data security incident or unauthorized access to its network or data or its customers’ data; the effects on McAfee’s business if we are unable to acquire new customers, if its customers do not renew their arrangements with us, or if McAfee is unable to expand sales to its existing customers or develop new solutions or solution packages that achieve market acceptance; McAfee’s ability to manage its growth effectively, execute its business plan, maintain high levels of service and customer satisfaction or adequately address competitive challenges; McAfee’s dependence on its senior management team and other key employees; McAfee’s ability to enhance and expand its sales and marketing capabilities; McAfee’s ability to attract and retain highly qualified personnel to execute its growth plan; the risks associated with interruptions or performance problems of its technology, infrastructure and service providers; McAfee’s dependence on Amazon Web Services cloud infrastructure services; the impact of data privacy concerns, evolving regulations of cloud computing, cross-border data transfer restrictions and other domestic and foreign laws and regulations; the impact of volatility in quarterly operating results; the risks associated with McAfee’s revenue recognition policy and other factors may distort its financial results in any given period; the effects on McAfee’s customer base and business if we are unable to enhance its brand cost-effectively; McAfee’s ability to comply with anti-corruption, anti-bribery and similar laws; McAfee’s ability to comply with governmental export and import controls and economic sanctions laws; the potential adverse impact of legal proceedings; McAfee’s ability to identify suitable acquisition targets or otherwise successfully implement its growth strategy; the impact of a change in McAfee’s pricing model; McAfee’s ability to meet service level commitments under its customer contracts; the impact on McAfee’s business and reputation if it is unable to provide high-quality customer support; McAfee’s dependence on strategic relationships with third parties; the impact of adverse general and industry-specific economic and market conditions and reductions in IT and identity spending; McAfee’s dependence on adequate research and development resources and its ability to successfully complete acquisitions; McAfee’s reliance on software and services from other parties; the impact of real or perceived errors, failures, vulnerabilities or bugs in McAfee’s solutions; McAfee’s ability to protect its proprietary rights; the impact on McAfee’s business if we are subject to infringement claim or a claim that results in a significant damage award; the risks associated with McAfee’s use of open source software in its solutions, solution packages and subscriptions; McAfee’s reliance on SaaS vendors to operate certain functions of its business; the risks associated with indemnity provisions in McAfee’s agreements; the risks associated with liability claims if McAfee’s breach its contracts; the impact of the failure by McAfee’s customers to pay it in accordance with the terms of their agreements; the risks associated with exposure to foreign currency fluctuations; the impact of potentially adverse tax consequences associated with McAfee’s international operations; the impact of changes in tax laws or regulations; McAfee’s ability to maintain its corporate culture; McAfee’s ability to develop and maintain proper and effective internal control over financial reporting; the risks associated with having operations and employees located in Israel; and the impact of catastrophic events on McAfee’s business. Given these factors, as well as other variables that may affect McAfee’s operating results, you should not rely on forward-looking statements, assume that past financial performance will be a reliable indicator of future performance, or use historical trends to anticipate results or trends in future periods. The forward-looking statements included in this press release and on the related teleconference call relate only to events as of the date hereof. McAfee undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statement as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as otherwise required by law.

On March 6, 2021, we entered into a definitive agreement to sell certain assets together with certain liabilities, comprising substantially all of our Enterprise Business to STG. As a result, the results of our Enterprise Business were classified as discontinued operations and thus excluded from continuing operations for all periods presented. However, our Q1 FY2021 guidance included the results of operations related to our Enterprise Business divestiture. Consequently, we are presenting certain combined non-GAAP continuing operations and non-GAAP discontinued operations results, in order to facilitate a reader’s understanding of our Q1 FY2021 financial performance compared to the Q1 FY2021 guidance provided on February 23, 2021, and the comparable prior year period. Our Management also used these combined non-GAAP results to evaluate our Q1 FY2021 financial performance against our comparable prior year period results. See Appendix A for an explanation of non-GAAP measures and other items.

APPENDIX A

EXPLANATION OF NON-GAAP MEASURES AND OTHER ITEMS

Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Operating Income Margin, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin

We define adjusted operating income as net income (loss), excluding the impact of amortization of intangible assets, equity-based compensation expense, transformation and transition expense, restructuring expense, interest expense and other, net, provision for income tax expense, foreign exchange (gain) loss, net, income or loss from discontinued operations, net of taxes, and other costs that we do not believe are reflective of our ongoing operations. Adjusted operating income margin is calculated as adjusted operating income divided by net revenue. We define adjusted EBITDA as adjusted operating income, excluding the impact of depreciation expense and other non-operating costs. Adjusted EBITDA margin is calculated as adjusted EBITDA divided by net revenue.

Adjustments for Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, and Adjusted EPS

Adjusted net income assumes all net income is attributable to McAfee Corp., which assumes the full exchange of all outstanding LLC Units for shares of Class A common stock of McAfee Corp., and is adjusted for the impact of amortization of intangible assets, amortization of debt issuance costs, equity-based compensation expense, transformation and transition expense, restructuring expense, foreign exchange gain (loss), net, income or loss from discontinued operations, net of taxes, certain non-recurring tax benefits and expenses, and other costs that we do not believe to be reflective of our ongoing operations. The adjusted provision for income taxes represents the tax effect on net income, adjusted for all of the listed adjustments, assuming that all consolidated net income was subject to corporate taxation for all periods presented. We have an assumed rate of 22% which represents our long term expected corporate tax rate excluding discrete and non-recurring tax items. This amount has been recast for periods reported previously.

Adjusted net income margin is calculated as adjusted net income divided by net revenue. Adjusted net income and adjusted net income margin have limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP.

Below are additional information to the adjustments for adjusted operating income, adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted net income:

(1)

 

As a result of our Sponsors’ acquisition from Intel of a majority interest in FTW in April 2017 (“Sponsor Acquisition”), cash awards were provided to certain employees who held Intel equity awards in lieu of equity in Foundation Technology Worldwide LLC (“FTW”). In addition, as a result of the Skyhigh acquisition, cash awards were provided to certain employees who held Skyhigh equity awards in lieu of equity in FTW and vest over multiple periods based on employee service requirements. As these rollover awards reflect one-time grants to former employees of Intel and Skyhigh Networks in connection with these transactions, we believe this expense is not reflective of our ongoing results.

(2)

 

Represents both direct and incremental costs in connection with business acquisitions, including acquisition consideration structured as cash retention, third party professional fees, and other integration costs.

(3)

 

Represents both direct and incremental costs to execute strategic restructuring events, including third-party professional fees and services, severance, and facility restructuring costs.

(4)

 

Represents management fees paid to certain affiliates of our Sponsors and Intel pursuant to the Management Services Agreement.

(5)

 

Represents costs incurred in connection with the announced sale of the Enterprise Business. Also includes costs of transformational initiatives include of duplicative run rate costs related to facilities and data center rationalization in 2020.

(6)

 

Represents severance for executive terminations not associated with a strategic restructuring event.

(7)

 

Represents the impact on net income of adjustments to liabilities under our tax receivable agreement.

(8)

 

Represents Foreign exchange gain (loss), net as shown on the condensed consolidated statement of operations. This amount is attributable to realized and unrealized gains or losses on non-U.S. Dollar denominated balances and is primarily due to unrealized gains or losses associated with our 1st Lien Euro Term Loan.

(9)

 

Prior to our IPO our structure was that of a pass through entity for U.S. federal income tax purposes with certain U.S. and foreign subsidiaries subject to income tax in their respective jurisdictions. Subsequent to the IPO, McAfee Corp. is taxed as a corporation and pays corporate federal, state, and local taxes on income allocated to it from Foundation Technology Worldwide LLC. This amount has been recast for periods reported previously. The adjusted provision for income taxes now represents the tax effect on net income, adjusted for all of the listed adjustments, assuming that all consolidated net income was subject to corporate taxation for all periods presented. We have assumed rate of 22% which represents our long term expected corporate tax rate excluding discrete and non-recurring tax items.

(10)

 

Represents weighted average shares outstanding and includes the dilutive impact of our outstanding equity awards and assumed conversion of our LLC units and MIUs not owned by the Corporation.

Unlevered Free Cash Flow

We define unlevered free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities add interest payments less capital expenditures. We consider unlevered free cash flow to be a liquidity measure that provides useful information to management and investors about the amount of cash generated by the business that can be used for strategic opportunities, including investing in our business, making strategic acquisitions, and strengthening the balance sheet.
