Majesco Announces Record First Quarter


Majesco (NASDAQ:MJCO), a global provider of cloud insurance platform software, today announced strong financial results for the fiscal 2021 first quarter ended June 30, 2020.

"Q1 FY21 was a record quarter for Majesco across all our key performance metrics of Total Revenue, Product Revenue, New Sales and Margin," stated Adam Elster, Majesco's CEO. "Companies of all sizes are turning to Majesco to partner with on their digital transformation journey and the team demonstrated excellent performance against our cloud product-based strategy. Our relentless focus on delivering innovation and customer success has fuelled our growth and solidified our leadership."

"We remain confident in our strategy, committed to its execution and believe we have the right platform in place to handle the near-term challenges associated with COVID-19, while continuing to pursue long-term growth opportunities," Elster continued.

"We are extremely excited to partner with Thoma Bravo, a firm with an established track record working with companies transitioning to the cloud."

Key Revenue Drivers:

First Quarter 2021 Financial Results

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measures. Reconciliation tables of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as used in this press release to GAAP are included in the financial section of this press release

Other Highlights

Given the pending transaction with Thoma Bravo, Majesco will not be hosting a Q1 earnings call.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In evaluating our business, we consider and use EBITDA as a supplemental measure of operating performance. We define EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. We present EBITDA because we believe it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties as a measure of financial performance. We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA before stock-based compensation and mergers and acquisitions expenses.

The terms EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not defined under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or U.S. GAAP, and are not a measure of operating income, operating performance or liquidity presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as an analytical tool, and when assessing Majesco's operating performance, investors should not consider EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA in isolation, or as a substitute for net income (loss) or other consolidated income statement data prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Among other things, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect our actual cash expenditures. Other companies may calculate similar measures differently than Majesco, limiting their usefulness as comparative tools. We compensate for these limitations by relying on U.S. GAAP results and using EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA only as supplemental.
