Envestnet Provides Update on Fourth Quarter 2016 Financial Results

CHICAGO--()--Envestnet (NYSE:ENV), the leading provider of intelligent systems for wealth management and financial wellness, today announced that it will report its results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2016, upon the finalization of its financial statements.

Envestnet is currently finalizing certain accounting matters, primarily related to potential state and local non-income tax obligations. In addition, the Company may conclude that certain control deficiencies exist in internal controls over financial reporting and may represent a material weakness over financial reporting as of December 31, 2016. The resolution of these matters may impact the timing of the filing of Envestnet’s Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016.

Envestnet is working diligently to complete its financial statements and anticipates releasing its fourth quarter results and holding a conference call to discuss its fourth quarter 2016 results and 2017 outlook as soon as practicable.

The Company also updated its financial outlook for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2016 as summarized below:

(1) Non-GAAP Financial Measures

“Adjusted revenues” exclude the effect of purchase accounting on the fair value of acquired deferred revenue. Under United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), we record at fair value the acquired deferred revenue for contracts in effect at the time the entities were acquired. Consequently, revenue related to acquired entities for periods subsequent to the acquisition does not reflect the full amount of revenue that would have been recorded by these entities had they remained stand-alone entities.

“Adjusted EBITDA” represents net income before deferred revenue fair value adjustment, interest income, interest expense, accretion on contingent consideration, income tax provision (benefit), depreciation and amortization, non-cash compensation expense, restructuring charges and transaction costs, severance, fair market value adjustment on contingent consideration, litigation related expense, foreign currency and related hedging activity, non-income tax adjustment, other (income) expense, impairment of equity method investment, loss allocation from equity method investment and loss attributable to non-controlling interest.

“Adjusted net income” represents net income before deferred revenue fair value adjustment, non-cash interest expense, non-cash compensation expense, accretion on contingent consideration, restructuring charges and transaction costs, severance, fair market value adjustment on contingent consideration, amortization of acquired intangibles, litigation related expense, foreign currency and related hedging activity, non-income tax adjustment, other (income) expense, impairment of equity method investment, loss allocation from equity method investment and loss attributable to non-controlling interest. Reconciling items are presented gross of tax, and a normalized tax rate is applied to the total of all reconciling items to arrive at adjusted net income. The reconciling items, and resulting adjusted net income, are presented on a different basis than historically shown to eliminate the impact of quarterly volatility of the GAAP tax provision (benefit) on the Company’s adjusted earnings figures.

“Adjusted net income per share” represents adjusted net income divided by the diluted number of weighted-average shares outstanding.

Reconciliations are not provided for guidance on adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and adjusted net income per share, as the Company is unable to predict the amounts to be adjusted, such as the GAAP tax provision. The Company’s Non-GAAP Financial Measures should not be viewed as a substitute for revenues, net income or net income per share determined in accordance with GAAP.
