Net loss for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2015 includes acquisition and sponsor-related expenses of $0.9 million and $33.9 million, respectively, the majority of which are attributable to the IPO-related expenses noted above.

Operating Highlights

  • GoDaddy entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Host Europe Group (HEG) for €1.69 billion (approximately US$1.79 billion), including €605 million paid to the selling shareholders and €1.08 billion in assumed net debt. The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2017.
  • GoDaddy launched GoCentral, a new service that combines a mobile-optimized website builder with an integrated set of marketing and e-commerce tools to help anyone connect with the audience for their idea or business.
  • GoDaddy returned to the Super Bowl, as part of a broader marketing campaign intended to introduce The Internet as a person who loves your idea and wants to see it online, and GoDaddy as the best way to get your idea everywhere it needs to be online.
  • GoDaddy added several enhancements to its Online Store platform, including the ability for GoDaddy sellers to accept Apple Pay, enabling the merchants on its e-commerce platform to capture increased mobile sales.
  • GoDaddy's Pro Program was expanded to add a set of tools and benefits designed for web designers and developers to include Pro ManageWP, which allows users to control all of their WordPress websites in one place, regardless of host.

Balance Sheet

At December 31, 2016, total cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments were $572.7 million, total long-term debt outstanding, including current portion, was $1,039.7 million, total debt was $1,072.5 million and net debt was $499.8 million.

Debt Refinancing and Pro Forma Capital Structure

Earlier today, GoDaddy finalized approximately $2.5 billion in new term loans that fully replaces its existing $1.1 billion term loan and provides full funding for the acquisition of the HEG mass business. The new credit facility includes an increase in the Company's revolver to $200 million, which is currently undrawn, extends the term loan maturity date to 2024, and will bear interest at a rate equal to LIBOR plus 250 basis points, versus the prior facility's cost of LIBOR plus 325 basis points. The company is assessing whether it will recognize a loss on debt extinguishment as a result of the refinancing. In addition to the recent financing, GoDaddy has received commitments for a bridge loan of approximately $530 million associated with the acquisition of HEG's PlusServer managed hosting business, which GoDaddy intends to divest.

Following the completion of the HEG acquisition, GoDaddy expects to be near the high-end of its targeted leverage of 2-4x. Organic cash flow growth and the potential divestiture of PlusServer is expected to bring the Company's leverage to the middle of that target by the end of 2017.

Business Outlook

For the first quarter ending March 31, 2017, GoDaddy expects total revenue in the range of $485 million to $490 million. For the full year ending December 31, 2017, GoDaddy expects total revenue in the range of $2.18 billion to $2.22 billion, representing approximately 19% growth at the midpoint versus the $1.8 billion in revenue generated in 2016.

For the full year 2017, GoDaddy expects unlevered free cash flow in a range of $460 million to $480 million, representing approximately 32% growth at the midpoint versus the $356.7 million in unlevered free cash generated in 2016.

This outlook includes no contribution from PlusServer, HEG's managed hosting business, which GoDaddy intends to divest. PlusServer will be reflected as an asset held for sale and not included in GoDaddy's reported results.

In the third quarter of 2016, GoDaddy modified its reporting and guidance practices to ensure compliance with recent SEC interpretations on the use of non-GAAP measures. As a result, GoDaddy transitioned away from its historical presentation of Adjusted EBITDA. The table below shows the significant components of the historical presentation of Adjusted EBITDA, including EBITDA excluding equity-based compensation as well as changes in key balance sheet items such as deferred revenue and prepaid and accrued domain registry costs, to allow these components to be compared to GoDaddy's previously issued guidance and past results for Adjusted EBITDA.

Our consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP). GoDaddy does not provide reconciliations from non-GAAP guidance to GAAP, because projections of changes in individual balance sheet amounts are not possible without unreasonable effort, and presentation of such reconciliations would imply an inappropriate degree of precision. Our reported results provide reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to their nearest GAAP equivalents.

Quarterly Conference Call and Webcast

GoDaddy will host a conference call and webcast to discuss fourth quarter 2016 results at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on February 15, 2017. To hear the call, dial (877) 201-0168 in the United States or (647) 788-4901 from international locations, with passcode 51914150. A live webcast of the call, together with a slide presentation including supplemental financial information and reconciliations of certain non-GAAP financial measures to their nearest GAAP equivalent, will be available through the Company's Investor Relations website at https://investors.godaddy.net. Following the call, a recorded replay of the webcast will be available on the website.

GoDaddy Inc. uses its Investor Relations website at https://investors.godaddy.net as a means of disclosing material non-public information and for complying with its disclosure obligations under Regulation FD. Accordingly, investors should monitor the Company's Investor Relations website, in addition to following press releases, Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings, public conference calls and webcasts.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements which are subject to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements are based on estimates and information available to us at the time of this press release and are not guarantees of future performance. Statements in this release involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. If the risks or uncertainties materialize or the assumptions prove incorrect, our results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. All statements other than statements of historical fact could be deemed forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to: launches of new or expansion of existing products or services, any projections of product or service availability, technology developments, customer growth, addressable market size or other future events; any statements about historical results that may suggest future trends for our business; any statements regarding our plans, strategies or objectives with respect to future operations, including international expansion plans; any statements regarding integration of recent or planned acquisitions, any statements regarding our future financial results; statements concerning GoDaddy's proposed acquisition of HEG, including the anticipated closing date; statements regarding GoDaddy's proposed divestiture of HEG's PlusServer business; and any statements of assumptions underlying any of the foregoing.

Actual results could differ materially from our current expectations as a result of many factors, including, but not limited to: the unpredictable nature of our rapidly evolving market; fluctuations in our financial and operating results; our rate of growth; interruptions or delays in our service or our web hosting; breaches of our security measures; the impact of any previous or future acquisitions; our ability to continue to release, and gain customer acceptance of, our existing and future products and services; our ability to manage our growth; our ability to hire, retain and motivate employees; the effects of competition; technological, regulatory and legal developments; intellectual property litigation; and developments in the economy, financial markets and credit markets.

Additional risks and uncertainties that could affect GoDaddy's financial results are included under the captions "Risk Factors" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" in GoDaddy's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015, which is available on GoDaddy's website at https://investors.godaddy.net and on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov. Additional information will also be set forth in other filings that GoDaddy makes with the SEC from time to time. Risks related to HEG also include uncertainties regarding the timing of the acquisition, retention of customers and employees and GoDaddy's ability to integrate HEG into GoDaddy and divest the PlusServer business. All forward-looking statements in this press release are based on information available to GoDaddy as of the date hereof. GoDaddy does not assume any obligation to update the forward-looking statements provided to reflect events that occur or circumstances that exist after the date on which they were made.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to our results determined in accordance with GAAP, this press release includes Total Bookings and ARPU, as operating metrics, and financial measures defined as "non-GAAP financial measures" by the SEC including EBITDA Excluding Equity-Based Compensation, Unlevered Free Cash Flow and Net Debt. These measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies in our industry, as those other companies may calculate their non-GAAP financial measures differently, particularly related to adjustments for acquisition accounting and non-recurring expenses.

We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are useful as a supplement in evaluating our ongoing operational performance and enhancing an overall understanding of our past financial performance. The non-GAAP financial measures included in this release should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation between each non-GAAP financial measure and its nearest GAAP equivalent is included in this release following the financial statements. We use both GAAP and non-GAAP measures to evaluate and manage our operations.

Total bookings. Total bookings represents cash receipts from the sale of products to customers in a given period adjusted for products where we recognize revenue on a net basis and without giving effect to certain adjustments, primarily net refunds granted in the period. Total bookings provides valuable insight into the sales of our products and the performance of our business since we typically collect payment at the time of sale and recognize revenue ratably over the term of our customer contracts. We report total bookings without giving effect to refunds granted in the period because refunds often occur in periods different from the period of sale for reasons unrelated to the marketing efforts leading to the initial sale. Accordingly, by excluding net refunds, we believe total bookings reflects the effectiveness of our sales efforts in a given period.

ARPU. We calculate ARPU as total revenue during the preceding 12 month period divided by the average of the number of total customers at the beginning and end of the period. ARPU provides insight into our ability to sell additional products to customers, though the impact to date has been muted due to our continued growth in total customers. The impact of purchase accounting adjustments makes comparisons of ARPU among historical periods less meaningful.

EBITDA excluding equity-based compensation. EBITDA excluding equity-based compensation is a supplemental measure of our operating performance allowing management, investors and others to evaluate and compare our core operating results and trends by removing the impact of our capital structure (interest expense from our outstanding long-term debt), asset base (depreciation and amortization), tax consequences (tax provision and TRA liability) and equity-based compensation. In addition to its use by management, we also believe it is a measure widely used by securities analysts, investors and others to evaluate the financial performance of our company and other companies in our industry. We calculate EBITDA excluding equity-based compensation as net income (loss) excluding depreciation and amortization, interest expense (net), provision (benefit) for income taxes and adjustments to the TRA liability and equity-based compensation expense. Other companies may calculate EBITDA excluding equity-based compensation differently; therefore, our calculation may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies in our industry.

Unlevered Free Cash Flow. Unlevered free cash flow is a measure of our liquidity used by management to evaluate our business prior to the impact of our capital structure and after tax distributions required by Desert Newco's LLC agreement and purchases of property and equipment, such as data center and infrastructure investments, that can be used by us for strategic opportunities and strengthening our balance sheet. However, given our debt obligations, unlevered free cash flow does not represent residual cash flow available for discretionary expenses.

Net Debt. We define net debt as total debt less cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments. Total debt consists of the current portion of long-term debt plus long-term debt, unamortized original issue discounts and unamortized debt issuance costs. We believe the presentation of net debt provides useful information to investors because our management reviews net debt as part of its management of our overall liquidity, financial flexibility, capital structure and leverage. Furthermore, certain analysts and debt rating agencies monitor our net debt as part of their assessments of our business.
