GAAP subscription revenue of $131.4 million within Q1 FY25 guidance range

Strong cash flow generation in Q1 FY25

AUSTIN, Texas: E2open Parent Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ETWO) (“e2open” or the “Company”), the connected supply chain SaaS platform with the largest multi-enterprise network, today announced financial results for its fiscal first quarter ended May 31, 2024.

“During the fiscal first quarter, e2open continued to make progress on our multi-quarter plan to return to strong, sustainable organic growth,” said Andrew Appel, e2open chief executive officer. “We have successfully put in place a disciplined operational cadence and a client-centric mindset designed to restore retention to our normal historical levels. Due to our proactive approach, we are on track for material improvements in retention metrics through the end of FY25. We are prioritizing and investing in e2open’s most important asset – our client relationships – and in Q1, this enabled us to improve client satisfaction and secure long-term contract extensions to support future growth. We closed important new subscription business in Q1, and although we experienced some temporary deal closure delays, we have already closed a number of those delayed deals in June. We remain confident in our strong market position and are moving forward aggressively with our client-focused growth re-acceleration plan.”

“In Q1 FY25, e2open delivered subscription revenue at the mid-point of our guidance,” said Marje Armstrong, chief financial officer of e2open. “Adjusted EBITDA margins remained strong and our Q1 cash generation was very robust. Our sound underlying business fundamentals provide important support for the changes we are making to improve client retention, sales execution, and implementation excellence. Gaining traction with these changes, we remain well positioned to build booking and revenue momentum as we move through the fiscal year.”

Armstrong also noted continued engagement in the strategic review that e2open announced in March, anticipating its completion in the near future. “We look forward to being able to share the outcome of the review with our customers, employees, and shareholders as soon as appropriate.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes certain financial measures not presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) including non-GAAP revenue, non-GAAP subscription revenue, non-GAAP professional services and other revenue, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP gross margin, adjusted free cash flow and adjusted earnings per share. These non-GAAP financial measures are not a measure of financial performance in accordance with GAAP and may exclude items that are significant in understanding and assessing the Company’s financial results. Therefore, these measures should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income, cash flows from operations or other measures of profitability, liquidity, or performance under GAAP. You should be aware that the Company’s presentation of these measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

The Company believes this non-GAAP measure of financial results provides useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to the Company’s financial condition and results of operations. The Company believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends in comparing the Company’s financial measures with other similar companies, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. These non-GAAP financial measures are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of judgments by management about which expense and income are excluded or included in determining these non-GAAP financial measures.

NOTE: E2open is unable to quantify certain amounts that would be required to be included in the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures for non-GAAP gross profit margin or adjusted EBITDA without unreasonable effort, and therefore no reconciliation of certain forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures for non-GAAP gross profit margin or adjusted EBITDA is included.

Safe Harbor Statement

Certain statements in this press release are "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and are subject to the safe harbor created thereby. These statements relate to future events or the Company's future financial performance and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements of the Company or its industry to be materially different from those expressed or implied by any forward-looking statements. In particular, statements about the Company's expectations, beliefs, plans, objectives, assumptions, future events or future performance contained in this press release are forward-looking statements. In some cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by terminology such as "may," "will," "could," "would," "should," "expect," "plan," "anticipate," "intend," "believe," "estimate," "predict," "potential," "outlook," "guidance" or the negative of those terms or other comparable terminology.

Please see the Company's documents filed or to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the annual report filed on Form 10-K, and any amendments thereto for a discussion of certain important risk factors that relate to forward-looking statements contained in this press release. The Company has based these forward-looking statements on its current expectations, assumptions, estimates and projections. While the Company believes these expectations, assumptions, estimates, and projections are reasonable, such forward-looking statements are only predictions and involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond the Company's control. These and other important factors may cause actual results, performance or achievements to differ materially from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements.
