Management Commentary

“With new records established virtually across the board, Q2 2018 represented a standout quarter for the company,” said David Wagner, Zix’s Chief Executive Officer. “Nearly all of our key metrics, including revenue, ACV, new first year orders and total orders reached all-time highs, driven by the strong performance of our enterprise and corporate & middle-market sales teams. Our strategy of expanding our cloud-based offerings continues to gain traction, particularly with ZixProtect and ZixArchive. Collectively, our advanced threat protection and unified archiving solutions made up 25% of our total new first year orders during the quarter, an increase of 65% from Q1 2018. Our gold standard email encryption product also saw solid year-over-year growth in new first year orders, increasing 10%, driven by a 77% increase in the number of hosted customers compared to Q2 2017.”

Zix’s Chief Financial Officer Dave Rockvam added: “The continued growth of our hosted email encryption offering, the success of our email protection bundles and disciplined cost management enabled us to yet again achieve both our top and bottom line guidance for the quarter. Revenue of $17.5 million represented 7% year-over-year growth and a new record for the company, as we continued to meet the increasing email protection needs of our customers. This is perhaps best reflected by our record new first

year orders of $3.3 million, which were up 27% year-over-year, driven by strong attach rates into our installed base which delivered 56% of our new first year orders for the quarter. Our backlog is also climbing, helped by the record total orders of $21.9 million we generated during the quarter, which was up 39% over the same year ago period. We also continued to execute on our balanced capital allocation strategy with the acquisition of Erado, working on our M&A pipeline and repurchasing more than $2.3 million of our common stock. Because of our strong results year-to-date and visibility into our business for the rest of the year, we are raising the midpoint of our revenue and GAAP earnings per share guidance, as well as our non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share guidance, for 2018.”

Wagner continued: “Our investments to build out our multi-tenant environments are going according to plan, and we’re making solid progress integrating unified archiving into ZixCentral. Unified archiving enables us to address protection of virtually all digital communication channels, which will further differentiate our full suite of services, increase our attach rates and enable higher customer retention. We’re executing on our strategy and gaining momentum, as we continue to assemble the right product offer, expand our sales leadership and focus our marketing presence in email protection. Overall, the record new order performance in Q2 represents a meaningful milestone in our journey and demonstrates that we’re executing on the right strategy.”

ZIX CORPORATION

NOTES TO RECONCILIATION OF GAAP TO NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION

The Company occasionally utilizes financial measures and terms not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”) in order to provide investors with an alternative method for assessing our operating results in a manner that enables investors to more thoroughly evaluate our current performance as compared to past performance. We also believe these Non-GAAP measures provide investors with a more informed baseline for modeling the Company’s future financial performance. Management uses these Non-GAAP financial measures to make operational and investment decisions, to evaluate the Company’s performance, to forecast and to determine compensation. Further, management utilizes these performance measures for purposes of comparison with its business plan and individual operating budgets and allocation of resources. We believe that our investors should have access to, and that we are obligated to provide, the same set of tools that we use in analyzing our results. These Non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results. We have provided definitions below for certain Non-GAAP financial measures, together with an explanation of why management uses these measures and why management believes that these Non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors. In addition, in our earnings release we have provided tables to reconcile the Non-GAAP financial measures utilized to GAAP financial measures.

ADJUSTED NON-GAAP MEASURES

Our Non-GAAP measures adjust GAAP Cost of revenue, Gross profit, Research and development expense, Selling and marketing expense, General and administrative expense, Operating income, Net income, Net income per share - diluted, and EBITDA for non-cash stock-based compensation expense, and strategic consulting and litigation costs to derive Non-GAAP adjusted Cost of revenue, adjusted Gross profit, adjusted Research and development expense, adjusted Selling and marketing expense, adjusted General and administrative expense, adjusted Operating income, adjusted Net income, adjusted Net income per share - diluted and adjusted EBITDA. We provide a reconciliation of these adjusted Non-GAAP measures to GAAP Gross profit, Operating income, Net income, Net income per share - diluted and EBITDA.

Our forward-looking adjusted Non-GAAP earnings per share information consistently excludes non-cash stock-based compensation expense. Additionally, the adjusted Non-GAAP earnings per share will consistently exclude litigation expenses and non-recurring items that impact our ongoing business. See items (A) through (E) below for further information on the current quarter’s reconciling items.

Items (A) through (F) on the “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures” table are listed to the right of certain categories under “Gross profit,” “Operating income,” “Net income,” “Net income per share - diluted” and “EBITDA” and correspond to the categories explained in further detail below under (A) through (F).

(A) Non-cash stock-based compensation charges relating to stock option grants, restricted stock, and restricted stock units awarded to and accounted for in accordance with Share-Based Payment accounting guidance. See (1) on previous page for breakdown of stock-based compensation. Because of varying valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and varying award types, the Company believes that the exclusion of stock-based compensation charges provides for more accurate comparisons to our peer companies and for a more accurate comparison of our financial results to previous periods. Additionally, the Company believes it is useful to investors to understand the specific impact of non-cash stock-based compensation charges on our operating results.

(B) Strategic consulting, acquisition and litigation costs. See item (2) on previous page. The Company’s management excludes certain board-directed consulting costs and litigation expenses when evaluating its ongoing performance and/or predicting its earnings trends and therefore excludes these charges on our adjusted operating results.

(C) Intangible amortization costs. See item (3) on previous page. The Company’s management excludes amortization expenses associated with the acquisition of intangible assets when evaluating its ongoing performance and/or predicting its earnings trends and therefore excludes these charges on our adjusted operating results.

(D) Corporate separation payment relating to employment termination benefits agreement. See item (4) on previous page. The Company’s management excludes these costs when evaluating its ongoing performance and/or predicting its earnings trends and therefore excludes these charges on our adjusted operating results.

(E) The Non-GAAP adjustment to the tax provision represents the non-cash tax expense included in the GAAP tax provision, including the current period utilization of deferred tax assets created in previous periods. The remaining provision for income taxes represents expected cash taxes to be paid.

(F) EBITDA represents earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA adds back stock-based compensation charges and litigation expenses.
