MicroStrategy Announces

Fourth Quarter 2017 Financial Results

TYSONS CORNER, Va., January 25, 2018 - MicroStrategy

® Incorporated (Nasdaq: MSTR), a leading worldwide provider of enterprise analytics and mobility software, today announced financial results for the three-month period ended December 31, 2017 (the fourth quarter of its 2017 fiscal year).

Fourth quarter 2017 revenues were $138.1 million versus $140.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2016, a 1.4% decrease. Product licenses and subscription services revenues for the fourth quarter of 2017 were $40.8 million versus $45.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2016, a 10.9% decrease. Product support revenues for the fourth quarter of 2017 were $75.0 million versus $72.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2016, a 3.2% increase. Other services revenues for the fourth quarter of 2017 were $22.3 million versus $21.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2016, a 3.1% increase. Foreign currency effects had a favorable impact on revenues for the fourth quarter of 2017.

Operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2017 were $94.6 million versus $80.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2016, an 18.2% increase. MicroStrategy did not capitalize any software development costs during the fourth quarter of 2017 or 2016.

Income from operations for the fourth quarter of 2017 was $18.8 million versus $36.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2016. Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2017 was $26.2 million, or $(2.29) per share on a diluted basis, as compared to net income of $31.1 million, or $2.69 per share on a diluted basis, for the fourth quarter of 2016. This net loss included an estimated one-time tax charge of $44.0 million resulting from the recent enactment of U.S. corporate tax reform legislation. This charge is comprised of a $40.3 million tax expense related to the mandatory deemed repatriation of certain foreign earnings and profits, which we intend to elect to pay over an eight-year period beginning in 2018, and $3.7 million related to the re-measurement of net deferred tax assets arising from the new lower corporate tax rate effected by the legislation. Excluding the impact of this legislation, non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2017 was $17.8 million, or $1.55 per share on a diluted basis.

Additionally, non-GAAP income from operations, which excludes share-based compensation expense and restructuring costs, was $22.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2017 versus $40.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2016. The tables at the end of this press release include a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures for the three months ended December 31, 2017 and 2016. An explanation of non-GAAP financial measures is also included under the heading “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below.

As of December 31, 2017, MicroStrategy had cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments of $675.2 million, as compared to $589.4 million as of December 31, 2016, an increase of $85.8 million.
