MODEL N ANNOUNCES SECOND QUARTER FISCAL YEAR 2021 FINANCIAL RESULTS
Exceeds Q2 Expectations and Raises Full Fiscal Year 2021 Guidance

SAN MATEO, Calif. – May 10, 2021 - Model N, Inc. (NYSE: MODN), the leader in cloud revenue management solutions, today announced financial results for the second quarter fiscal year 2021 ended March 31, 2021.

“In the second quarter, we executed well, most notably with large SaaS transitions and expansions within our customer base. Business Services, which we acquired from Deloitte in the first quarter, made significant contributions to our results, and we are already achieving operating synergies and expect to achieve continued growth throughout 2021,” said Jason Blessing, president and chief executive officer of Model N. “I believe that our strategic roadmap, our focus on customer success, and our ability to serve our customers with a powerful combination of software and business services will position us for continued success.”

Recent Highlights

•    Life Sciences Leaders Continue Transition to Model N Revenue Cloud - During the quarter, two global Life Sciences customers, including Novartis, one of the top five largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, and a top 5 global med tech company moved forward with their plans to transition to Model N Revenue Cloud for Life Sciences. Throughout the past year, many companies prioritized their cloud-first strategies and included Model N Revenue Cloud in their digital transformations. Responding to industry changes, including value-based pricing and requirements for government rebates, Model N customers may benefit from new product innovation and the ability to proactively respond to regulatory changes in their marketplaces.

•    Model N Professional Services Sets Industry Standards by Driving Go-Lives at New and Existing Customers - Model N Professional Services teams continued to implement Model N solutions for Life Sciences and High Tech customers exceeding internal on-time and on-budget objectives. During the quarter, the team completed SaaS transitions for existing customers and implementation projects with new customers, adding innovative solutions that provide visibility and scalability, integrate with CRMs and ERPs, and maximize customers’ profits.

•    Adoption of Model N’s Global Products in EMEA Continues – During the quarter, Model N signed a contract with a global biotechnology company that will utilize Model N’s Global Price Management and International Reference Pricing solutions to better compete in multiple European countries. Model N currently works with several companies in Europe, including nine of the top 15 European pharmaceutical companies, six leading medical device companies and many European divisions of the world’s leading high tech companies to bring them revenue management solutions that help them to win in their marketplaces. Following the recently announced partnership with Global Pricing Innovations, a leader in analytics and innovative solutions for biopharma pricing and market access, Model N will be able to better serve its customers with global pricing strategies.

•    Model N Adds High Tech Innovator to Its Customer Base – In the second quarter, Targus, a multinational maker of innovative mobile computing accessories, signed an agreement with the company as a first-time user of Model N Revenue Cloud for High Tech. By using these solutions, we believe that customers can improve their win probability, better manage incentive and rebate programs, and reap the benefits of accurate, actionable channel data.

The words “believe,” “may,” “will,” “estimate,” “continue,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “expect,” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties, and assumptions. If the risks materialize or assumptions prove incorrect, actual results could differ materially from the results implied by these forward-looking statements. Risks include, but are not limited to: (i) delays in closing customer contracts; (ii) our ability to improve and sustain our sales execution; (iii) the timing of new orders and the associated revenue recognition; (iv) adverse changes in general economic or market conditions; (v) delays or reductions in information technology spending and resulting variability in customer orders from quarter to quarter; (vi) competitive factors, including but not limited to pricing pressures, industry consolidation, entry of new competitors and new applications and marketing initiatives by our competitors; (vii) our ability to manage our growth effectively; (viii) acceptance of our applications and services by customers; (ix) success of new products; (x) the risk that the strategic initiatives that we may pursue will not result in significant future revenues; (xi) changes in health care regulation and policy and tax in the United States and worldwide; (xii) our ability to retain customers; (xiii) adverse impacts on our business and financial condition due to COVID-19; and (xiv) the possibility that the expected benefits related to our acquisition may not materialize as expected and the ability to successfully integrate Deloitte’s life sciences pricing and contracting solutions business and underlying technology. Further information on risks that could affect Model N’s results is included in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), including our most recent quarterly report on Form 10-Q and our annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2020, and any current reports on Form 8-K that we may file from time to time. Should any of these risks or uncertainties materialize, actual results could differ materially from expectations. Model N assumes no obligation to, and does not currently intend to, update any such forward-looking statements after the date of this release.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We have provided in this release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with accounting standards generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). We use these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing our financial results and believe they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating our ongoing operational performance. We believe that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends, and in comparing our financial results with other companies in our industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures below. A reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures has been provided in the financial statement tables included below in this press release.

Our reported results include certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP subscription gross profit, non-GAAP subscription gross margin, non-GAAP income (loss) from operations, non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss) per share, and adjusted EBITDA. Non-GAAP gross profit excludes stock-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets, and deferred revenue adjustments as they are often excluded by other companies to help investors understand the operational performance of their business. Non-GAAP income (loss) from operations excludes stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, acquisition-related expense, and deferred revenue adjustments. Non-GAAP net income (loss) excludes stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, acquisition-related expense, amortization of debt discount and issuance costs, and deferred revenue adjustments. Additionally, stock-based compensation expense varies from period to period and from company to company due to such things as valuation methodologies and changes in stock price. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net loss, adjusted for depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, acquisition-related expense, deferred revenue adjustment, interest (income) expense, net, other (income) expenses, net, and provision for (benefit from) income taxes. Reconciliation tables are provided in this press release.

We have not reconciled guidance for non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures because certain items that impact these measures are uncertain, out of our control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted or estimated,
3


such as the difficulties of estimating certain items such as charges to stock-based compensation expense. Accordingly, a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure guidance to the corresponding GAAP measures is not available without unreasonable effort.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, we use non-GAAP measures of adjusted EBITDA, gross profit, gross margin, income from operations, net income, weighted average shares outstanding and net income per share, which are adjusted to exclude stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, acquisition-related expense, and amortization of debt discount and issuance costs and include dilutive shares where applicable. We believe these adjustments are appropriate to enhance an overall understanding of our past financial performance and also our prospects for the future. These adjustments to our current period GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of our underlying operating results and trends and our marketplace performance. The non-GAAP results are an indication of our baseline performance that are considered by management for the purpose of making operational decisions. In addition, these non-GAAP results are the primary indicators management uses as a basis for our planning and forecasting of future periods. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for operating income (loss), net loss or basic and diluted net loss per share prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. Non-GAAP financial measures are not based on a comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and are subject to limitations.

While a large component of our expenses incurred in certain periods, we believe investors may want to exclude the effects of these items in order to compare our financial performance with that of other companies and between time periods:

(a)Stock-based compensation is a non-cash expense accounted for in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718. We believe that the exclusion of stock-based compensation expense provides for a better comparison of our operating results to prior periods and to our peer companies.

(b)Amortization of intangible assets resulted principally from acquisitions. Intangible asset amortization is a non-cash item. As such, we believe exclusion of these expenses provides for a better comparison of our operating results to prior periods and to our peer companies.

(c)Acquisition-related expense. Acquisition-related expense is incurred in connection with the acquisition and is non-recurring. As such, we believe that exclusion of these acquisition-related expense provides for a better comparison of our operation results to prior periods and to our peer companies.

(d)Amortization of debt discount and issuance costs. Amortization of debt discount and issuance costs is a non-cash item. As such, we believe exclusion of these expenses provides for a better comparison of our operating results to prior periods and to our peer companies. Second quarter and the first six months of fiscal year 2020 has been revised to exclude the amortization of debt discounts and issuance costs related to our term loan and promissory note to better provide consistency between the periods.
