Q2 Holdings, Inc. to Host Virtual Investor Day; Q2 is Equipped to Lead and Capitalize on the New Frontier in Financial Services

Q2 to provide long-term targets of approximately $1.2 billion in non-GAAP revenue and 20% Adjusted EBITDA Margins by 2026

AUSTIN, Texas, (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Q2 Holdings, Inc. /zigman2/quotes/203491356/composite QTWO +8.52% , a leading provider of digital banking and lending solutions, will host its Investor Day today at 9:00 a.m. EST. The event will feature presentations from members of Q2’s executive team focused on the evolution of financial services, why Q2 believes it is well positioned to help lead this transformation, and how that translates into a compelling long-term growth and margin expansion opportunity for the company.

Q2 has identified three market forces converging to shape the future of the financial services industry: the increasing urgency to digitize the entire bank; the growing market share and influence of fintechs in financial services; and the movement of innovative brands to embed financial services into the daily lives of their consumer and business customers.

Q2’s strategic assets position the company to capitalize on this convergence, including: a broad and deep portfolio of digital banking, lending, and data solutions; an open technology platform that accelerates innovation and enables a new partnership ecosystem; and a complete Banking-as-a-Service solution that enables innovative companies to embed finance directly into their products.

“A New Frontier has emerged, one in which financial institutions, fintechs, and brands require new technology, partnerships, and business models to create differentiation and lasting value,” said Matt Flake, CEO. “As a result, we see our market opportunity expanding rapidly. We’re executing on our core business, delivering innovation at scale, and believe that we have built a substantial head start enabling new partnerships with fintechs and brands, positioning us for continued leadership across financial services.”

In today’s Investor Day presentation, Q2’s executive team will explain why Q2 believes this leadership position creates an opportunity for substantial, long-term revenue growth accompanied by expanding margins and will provide Q2’s long-term targets of approximately $1.2 billion in annual total non-GAAP revenue, approximately 60% gross margins, and approximately 20% adjusted EBITDA margins by 2026.

Investors are invited to register for the event here .

A live webcast of the event will be accessible from the investor relations section of Q2’s website at http://investors.Q2.com/ . The event will conclude with a live Q&A session in which participants can submit questions once they have registered for the event.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

Q2 uses the following non-GAAP financial measures in this press release or in the investor day presentation: non-GAAP revenue; adjusted EBITDA; non-GAAP gross margin; non-GAAP sales and marketing expense; and non-GAAP general and administrative expense. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful measures of operating performance because they exclude items that Q2 does not consider indicative of its core performance.

In the case of non-GAAP revenue, Q2 adjusts revenue to exclude the impact to deferred revenue from purchase accounting adjustments. In the case of adjusted EBITDA, Q2 adjusts net loss for such items as interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, acquisition-related costs, unoccupied lease charges, partnership termination charges, loss on extinguishment of debt, and the impact to deferred revenue from purchase accounting. In the case of non-GAAP gross margin, Q2 adjusts gross margin for stock-based compensation, amortization of acquired technology, acquisition-related costs and the impact to deferred revenue from purchase accounting. In the case of non-GAAP sales and marketing expense and non-GAAP general and administrative expense, Q2 adjusts the corresponding GAAP expense to exclude stock-based compensation.

There are limitations associated with the use of these non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, do not reflect a comprehensive system of accounting and may not be completely comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies due to potential differences in the exact method of calculation between companies. Certain items that are excluded from these non-GAAP financial measures can have a material impact on operating and net income (loss). As a result, these non-GAAP financial measures have limitations and should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or superior to, the closest GAAP measures, or other financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Q2’s management uses these non-GAAP measures as measures of operating performance; to prepare Q2’s annual operating budget; to allocate resources to enhance the financial performance of Q2’s business; to evaluate the effectiveness of Q2’s business strategies; to provide consistency and comparability with past financial performance; to facilitate a comparison of Q2’s results with those of other companies, many of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results; and in communication with its board of directors concerning Q2’s financial performance.

A reconciliation of forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release to their most comparable GAAP measures is not available without unreasonable effort due to the uncertainty regarding, and the potential variability of, certain of the adjustments made to such measures that may be incurred in the future.
