Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

Some of the information contained in the sections entitled “Item 1. Business” and “Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” and elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contain forward-looking statements that reflect our current views with respect to, among other things, future events and financial performance. You can identify these forward-looking statements by the use of forward-looking words such as “outlook,” “believes,” “expects,” “potential,” “continues,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “could,” “seeks,” “approximately,” “predicts,” “intends,” “plans,” “estimates,” “anticipates,” “target,” “projects,” “contemplates” or the negative version of those words or other comparable words. Any forward-looking statements contained in this report are based upon our historical performance and on our current plans, estimates and expectations in light of information currently available to us. The inclusion of this forward-looking information should not be regarded as a representation by us that the future plans, estimates or expectations contemplated by us will be achieved. Such forward-looking statements are subject to various risks and uncertainties and assumptions relating to our operations, financial results, financial condition, business, prospects, growth strategy and liquidity. For more information regarding these risks and uncertainties as well as certain additional risks that we face, refer to Part II, “Item 1A. Risk Factors” as well as the factors more fully described in “Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Conditions and Results of Operations,” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended August 31, 2020, and those described from time to time in our future reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Accordingly, there are, or will be, important factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those indicated in these statements. We believe that these factors include, but are not limited to:

 

our history of losses;

 

changes in our product revenue mix as we continue to focus on sales of our Software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) solutions, which will cause fluctuations in our results of operations and cash flows between periods;

 

our reliance on orders and renewals from a relatively small number of customers for a substantial portion of our revenue, and the substantial negotiating leverage customers have in renewing and expanding their contracts for our solutions;

 

the success of our growth strategy focused on SaaS solutions and our ability to develop or sell our solutions into new markets or further penetrate existing markets;

 

our ability to manage our expanding operations;

 

intense competition in our market;

 

third-parties may assert we are infringing or violating their intellectual property rights;

 

U.S. and global market and economic conditions, particularly adverse in the insurance industry;

 

additional complexity, burdens and volatility in connection with our international sales and operations;

 

the length and variability of our sales and implementation cycles;

 

data breaches, unauthorized access to customer data or other disruptions of our solutions;

 

the significant influence that Apax VIII Fund, a global private equity fund (collectively, with its affiliates, “Apax”) and Accenture plc, a public limited company incorporated in Ireland (collectively, with its affiliates, “Accenture”), will have on the composition of our board of directors, our management, business plans and policies, and any conflicts of interest between Apax and Accenture, on the one hand, and our other stockholders, on the other hand;

 

our continued reliance on “controlled company” exemptions under Nasdaq listing standards during the applicable phase-in periods;

 

impact of pandemics, including the COVID-19 pandemic, on U.S. and global economies, our business, our employees, results of operations, financial condition, demand for our products, sales and implementation cycles, and the health of our customers’ and partners’ businesses; and

 

the other risks and uncertainties described under Part II, “Item 1A. Risk Factors.”

These factors should not be construed as exhaustive and should be read in conjunction with the other cautionary statements that are included in this report. The forward-looking statements made in this report relate only to events as of the date on which the statements are made. We do not undertake any obligation to publicly update or review any forward-looking statement except as required by law, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise.

If one or more of these or other risks or uncertainties materialize, or if our underlying assumptions prove to be incorrect, our actual results may vary materially from what we may have expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. We caution that you should not place undue reliance on any of our forward-looking statements. You should specifically consider the factors identified in this report that could cause actual results to differ before making an investment decision to purchase our common stock. Furthermore, new risks and uncertainties arise from time to time, and it is impossible for us to predict those events or how they may affect us.

Basis of Presentation

As used in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q unless the context otherwise requires, references to “we,” “us,” “our,” the “Company,” “Duck Creek,” and similar references refer to Duck Creek Technologies, Inc. together with its subsidiaries, and the following terms have the meanings or are calculated as set forth below:

 

We define “subscription revenue” as the revenue derived from the sale of our SaaS solutions through recurring fee arrangements for the period indicated.

 

We define “ACV” as the committed total contract value of new software sales in dollar terms divided by the corresponding minimum number of committed months, with the resultant minimum monthly commitment being multiplied by twelve.

 

We define “carriers” as property and casualty (“P&C”) insurance carriers.

 

We define “core systems” as the following key functions of carriers: policy administration, claims management and billing.

 

We define “customers” as buying entities that contract individually for our products and services. For example, multiple subsidiaries of a single carrier may each constitute a customer if each entity contracts with us separately. By contrast, a carrier that uses our products across multiple subsidiaries under a single enterprise license agreement would constitute a single customer.

 

We define “DWP” as the gross dollar value of total premiums paid to carriers by policyholders.

Certain monetary amounts, percentages, and other figures included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q have been subject to rounding adjustments. Percentage amounts included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q have not in all cases been calculated on the basis of such rounded figures, but on the basis of such amounts prior to rounding. For this reason, percentage amounts in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q may vary from those obtained by performing the same calculations using the figures in our consolidated financial statements included elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Certain other amounts that appear in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q may not sum due to rounding. When we state that we are the leading SaaS provider of core systems for the P&C insurance industry, we are basing our leadership on our subscription revenue for fiscal 2020.

Our fiscal year ends on August 31. Unless otherwise noted, any reference to a year preceded by the word “fiscal” refers to the fiscal year ended August 31 of that year. For example, references to “fiscal 2019” refer to the fiscal year ended August 31, 2019. Any reference to a year not preceded by “fiscal” refers to a calendar year. Accordingly, our first three fiscal quarters are the successor three-month periods following August 31 (i.e., November 30, February 28 and April 30).

DUCK CREEK TECHNOLOGIES, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements

(amounts in thousands except unit and per unit and share and per share amounts)

(Unaudited)

(1)

Nature of Business

Duck Creek Technologies, Inc (the Company) is a provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) core systems to the property and casualty (P&C) insurance industry, through Duck Creek OnDemand. Products offered include Duck Creek Policy, Duck Creek Billing, Duck Creek Claims, Duck Creek Rating, Duck Creek Insights, Duck Creek Distribution Management, Duck Creek Reinsurance Management, Duck Creek Anywhere Managed Integrations, and Duck Creek Industry Content. The Company also provides its products via perpetual and term license arrangements to customers with legacy systems that have yet to upgrade to SaaS.

The Company was formed as a Delaware corporation on November 15, 2019, with no operating assets or operations for the purpose of facilitating an initial public offering (the IPO) and related Reorganization Transactions (as described below) in order to carry on the business of Disco Topco Holdings (Cayman), L.P. and its subsidiaries (the Operating Partnership). Unless otherwise indicated or the context otherwise requires, references to “Duck Creek Technologies” and the “Company” refer to (a) prior to the consummation of the Reorganization Transactions and the IPO, to Disco Topco Holdings (Cayman), L.P., and its subsidiaries, and (b) after the consummation of the Reorganization Transactions and IPO to Duck Creek Technologies, Inc, and its subsidiaries.  

Initial Public Offering

On August 14, 2020, the Company completed its IPO. It sold 17,250,000 shares of common stock (including shares issued pursuant to the exercise in full of the underwriters’ option to purchase additional shares) at a public offering price of $27.00 per share for net proceeds of $429.2 million, after deducting underwriting discounts, commissions, and estimated offering expenses.

The Company used (i) $43.1 million of the net proceeds received from the IPO to redeem all of the outstanding LP Units of the Operating Partnership retained by Accenture plc (Accenture) and RBW Investment GmbH & Co. (RBW), after giving effect to the contributions that were part of the Reorganization Transactions, at a redemption price per LP Unit equal to the IPO price less underwriting discounts and commissions, (ii) $64.7 million of the net proceeds received from the IPO to repurchase from Apax Partners L.P. (Apax) a portion of the shares in the Company received by Apax in the Reorg Merger (as described below) at a repurchase price per share equal to the IPO price less underwriting discounts and commissions, and (iii) $6.7 million of net proceeds received from the IPO to cash settle outstanding equity awards of certain international employees.

Reorganization Transactions

The Company and the Operating Partnership completed a series of transactions concurrently with or immediately following the completion of the IPO (Reorganization Transactions) which are described below:

 

The Company adopted an amended and restated certification of incorporation that authorized, immediately prior to the IPO, one class of common stock and one class of preferred stock.

 

Apax contributed the entity that held all of Apax’s equity interests in the Operating Partnership and all of Apax’s interest in the general partner of the Operating Partnership (General Partner) to a newly-formed Cayman company (the Reorg Subsidiary) in exchange for shares in the Reorg Subsidiary.

 

Accenture contributed to the Company, directly or indirectly, (i) a portion of its equity interests in the Operating Partnership and (ii) all of its interest in the General Partner in exchange for newly-issued common stock in the Company.

 

Certain members of management contributed to the Company, directly or indirectly, all of their respective equity interests in the Operating Partnership in exchange for (i) newly-issued common stock in the Company or (ii) restricted common stock in the Company and options to acquire common stock in the Company with an exercise price equal to the fair market value on the date of grant.

 

All other investors in the Operating Partnership (excluding Apax, Accenture, and RBW) contributed to the Company, directly or indirectly, all of their equity interests in the Operating Partnership in exchange for newly-issued common stock in the Company.

6


 

 

The Company contributed a portion of the net proceeds received from the IPO to the Operating Partnership and the Operating Partnership redeemed the outstanding LP Units of the Operating Partnership owned by Accenture and RBW that were not contributed to the Company.

 

Immediately following the completion of the IPO, (i) Apax exchanged all of its shares in the Reorg Subsidiary for newly-issued common stock in the Company and (ii) the Reorg Subsidiary merged with and into the Company (and subsequently ceased existence) (collectively, the Reorg Merger).

 

Following these transactions and the subsequent redemption of the outstanding LP Units owned by Accenture and RBW that were not contributed to the Company, the Company indirectly owns all of the LP Units of the Operating Partnership and all interest in the General Partner.

The Reorganization Transactions are considered transactions between entities under common control. As a result, Disco Topco Holdings (Cayman), L.P., is considered the predecessor of Duck Creek Technologies, Inc. for accounting purposes. This has resulted in the presentation of Disco Topco Holdings (Cayman), L.P.’s historical consolidated financial statements as the historical consolidated financial statements of Duck Creek Technologies, Inc. Duck Creek Technologies, Inc., has accounted for Disco Topco Holdings (Cayman), L.P.’s assets and liabilities at their historical carrying amounts.

Basis of Presentation, Consolidation, and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

(a)

Basis of Presentation

The consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (GAAP) set by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission regarding interim financial reporting. Accordingly, certain information and note disclosures normally included in the financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair presentation of the results of operations, financial position and cash flows for the periods presented have been reflected. References to GAAP issued by the FASB in these notes are to the FASB Accounting Standards Codification (FASB ASC). The Company has no items of other comprehensive income or loss; therefore, the Company’s net loss is identical to its comprehensive loss.

These consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and related notes included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended August 31, 2020 filed with the SEC on November 3, 2020. Operating results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for any future period or the entire fiscal year.

 

(b)

Risk and Uncertainties

The global pandemic resulting from the novel strain of coronavirus known as COVID-19, and certain intensified preventative or protective public health measures undertaken by governments, businesses and individuals to contain the spread of COVID-19, have, and continue to, result in global business disruptions that adversely affect workforces, organizations, economies, and financial markets globally, leading to an economic downturn and increased market volatility. While the Company did not experience a material disruption in bookings or sales from the COVID-19 pandemic in the three months ended November 30, 2020, a continued or intensifying outbreak over the short- or medium-term could result in delays in services delivery, delays in implementations, delays in critical development and commercialization activities, including delays in the introduction of new products and services and further international expansion, interruptions in sales and marketing activity, furloughs of employees and disruptions of supply chains. Additionally, the Company may incur increased costs in the future when employees return to work and the Company implements measures to ensure their safety. The magnitude of the effect of COVID-19 on the Company’s business will depend, in part, on the length and severity of the restrictions (including the effects of recently announced “re-opening” plans following a recent slowdown of the virus infection rate in certain countries and localities) and other limitations on the Company’s ability to conduct its business in the ordinary course. The longer the pandemic continues or resurges, the more severe the impacts of COVID-19 will be on the Company’s business. The extent, length and consequences of the pandemic are uncertain and impossible to predict, but could be material. COVID-19 and other similar outbreaks, epidemics or pandemics could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition, results of operations, cash flows and prospects and could cause significant volatility in the trading prices of the Company’s common stock as a result of any of the risks described above and other risks that the Company is not able to predict.

Principles of Consolidation

The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

(d)

Significant Accounting Policies

The Company’s significant accounting policies are described in Note 2, Summary of Significant Accounting Policies, to the consolidated financial statements included elsewhere in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended August 31, 2020. There have been no material changes to the significant accounting policies during the three-month period ended November 30, 2020, other than those noted below relating to the adoption of ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments (ASU 2016-13) effective September 1, 2020.

Allowance for Credit Losses

The Company maintains an allowance for expected credit losses for its accounts receivable balance.  The allowance reflects the expected collectability of the balance and is based on historical losses, customer-specific factors, and current economic conditions. Credit losses are recorded in general and administrative expense while billing and other revenue adjustments are recorded as a reduction to revenue.

 

(e)

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments (ASU 2016-13). The new standard requires companies to measure credit losses utilizing a methodology that reflects expected credit losses and requires a consideration of a broader range of reasonable and supportable information to inform credit loss estimates. The Company adopted this new standard on September 1, 2020. The impact to the consolidated financial statements as a result of adoption was not material.

In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-04, Intangibles – Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment (ASU 2017-04). This new guidance simplifies the subsequent measurement of goodwill by eliminating Step 2 from the goodwill impairment test. Under the new standard, entities will perform goodwill impairment tests by comparing the fair value of a reporting unit with its carrying amount and recognize an impairment charge for the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the reporting unit’s fair value. The Company adopted this new standard on September 1, 2020. The impact to the consolidated financial statements as a result of adoption was not material.

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-15, Customer’s Accounting for Implementation Costs Incurred in a Cloud Computing Arrangement That is a Service Contract (ASU 2018-15). This new guidance requires a customer in a cloud computing arrangement that is a service contract to follow the internal-use software guidance in Accounting Standards Codification 350-40 to determine which implementation costs to defer and recognize as an asset. ASU 2018-15 generally aligns the guidance on recognizing implementation costs incurred in a cloud computing arrangement that is a service contract with that for implementation costs incurred to develop or obtain internal-use software, including hosting arrangements that include an internal-use software license. The Company adopted this new standard on September 1, 2020. The impact to the consolidated financial statements as a result of adoption was not material.

 

 

(f)

Recent Accounting Pronouncements Not Yet Effective

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes (ASU 2019-12). The new standard is intended to simplify various aspects related to accounting for income taxes by removing certain exceptions to the general principles in Topic 740 and clarifying certain aspects of the current guidance to promote consistency among reporting entities. ASU 2019-12 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, including interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption permitted. An entity that elects early adoption must adopt all the amendments in the same period. Most amendments within ASU 2019-12 are required to be applied on a prospective basis, while certain amendments must be applied on a retrospective or modified retrospective basis. The Company does not expect the adoption of this new standard to have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements

In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting (ASU 2020-04).  The new standard provides temporary optional expedients and exceptions to GAAP guidance on contract modifications to ease the financial reporting burdens related to the expected market transition from the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) to alternative reference rates. The Company may elect to apply the amendments prospectively through December 31, 2022. The Company does not expect the adoption of this new standard to have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

Other recent accounting pronouncements that are or will be applicable to the Company did not, or are not expected to, have a material impact on the Company’s present or future financial statements.

Revenue Recognition

The Company derives its revenues primarily from the following four sources, which represent performance obligations of the Company:

 

Sales of hosted software services (SaaS) under subscription arrangements.

 

Sales of software licenses. Software license revenue is derived from the sale of perpetual and term license arrangements to customers.

 

Sales of maintenance and support services. Maintenance and support services include telephone and web-based support, software updates, and rights to unspecified software upgrades on a when-and-if-available basis during the maintenance term.

 

Sales of professional services. Professional services primarily relate to the implementation of the Company’s SaaS offerings and software licenses.

In accordance with ASC 606, the Company recognizes revenue from the identified performance obligations, as determined in its contracts with customers, as control is transferred to the customer in an amount that reflects the consideration the Company expects to receive. The Company applies the following five steps to achieve the core principle of ASC 606:

 

(1)

Identify the contract with the customer

The Company considers the terms and conditions of the contracts and its customary business practices in identifying contracts under ASC 606. The Company has determined that a contract with a customer exists when the contract is approved, each party’s rights regarding the services to be transferred can be identified, payment terms for the services can be identified, the customer has the ability and intent to pay, and the contract has commercial substance. The Company applies judgment in determining the customer’s ability and intent to pay, which is based on a variety of factors, including the customer’s historical payment experience or, in the case of a new customer, credit and financial information pertaining to the customer.

 

(2)

Identify the performance obligations in the contract Performance obligations promised in a contract are identified based on the products and services that will be transferred to the customer that are both capable of being distinct, whereby the customer can benefit from the product or service either on its own or together with other resources that are readily available from third-parties or from the Company, and are distinct in the context of the contract, whereby the transfer of the products or services is separately identifiable from other promises in the contract.

 

(3)

Determine the transaction price

The transaction price is determined based on the consideration to which the Company expects to be entitled in exchange for transferring products or services to the customer. Variable consideration is included in the transaction price if, in the Company’s judgment, it is probable that no significant future reversal of cumulative revenue under the contract will occur. The sale of the Company’s software and SaaS products may include variable consideration relating to changes in a customer’s direct written premium (DWP) managed by these solutions. The Company estimates variable consideration based on historical DWP usage to the extent that a significant revenue reversal is not probable to occur.

In instances where the timing of revenue recognition differs from the timing of invoicing, the Company has determined that contracts generally do not include a significant financing component. The primary purpose of the Company’s invoicing terms is to provide customers with simplified and predictable ways of purchasing our products and services, not to receive financing from customers or to provide customers with financing.

 

(4)

Allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract

If the contract contains a single performance obligation, the entire transaction price is allocated to the single performance obligation. Contracts that contain multiple performance obligations require an allocation of the transaction price to each performance obligation based on a relative standalone selling price (SSP).

9


 

 

(5)

Recognize revenue when (or as) the Company satisfies a performance obligation

Revenue is recognized at the time the related performance obligation is satisfied by transferring the promised product or service to a customer. Revenue is recognized when control of the products or services are transferred to the Company’s customers, in an amount that reflects the consideration that it expects to receive in exchange for those products or services.

The Company records revenue net of applicable sales taxes collected. Sales taxes collected from customers are recorded as part of accounts payable in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets and are remitted to state and local taxing jurisdictions based on the filing requirements of each jurisdiction.

Disaggregation of Revenue

The Company provides disaggregation of revenue based on product and service type on the consolidated statements of operations as it believes these categories best depict how the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows are affected by economic factors.

The following table summarizes revenue by geographic area based on the location of the contracting entity, regardless of where the products or services are used, for the three months ended November 30, 2020 and 2019:

Subscription Arrangements

The transaction price allocated to subscription arrangements is recognized as revenue over time throughout the term of the contract as the services are provided on a continuous basis, beginning after the SaaS environment is provisioned and made available to customers. The Company’s subscription arrangements generally have terms of three to seven years and are generally payable on a monthly basis over the term of the subscription arrangement, which is typically noncancelable. Revenue is recognized ratably using contractual DWP as the measure of progress.

Software Licenses

The Company has concluded that its software licenses provide the customer with the right to functional intellectual property (IP), and are distinct performance obligations as the customer can benefit from the software licenses on their own. The transaction price allocated to perpetual and term license arrangements is recognized as revenue at a point in time when control is transferred to the customer, which generally occurs at the time of delivery. Perpetual software license fees are generally payable when the contract is executed. Term license fees are generally payable in advance on an annual basis over the term of the license arrangement, which is typically noncancelable. Perpetual and term license arrangements are delivered before related services are provided, including maintenance and support services, and are functional without such services.

Maintenance and Support Services

Maintenance and support contracts associated with the Company’s software licenses entitle customers to receive technical support and software updates, on a when and if available basis, during the term of the maintenance and support contract. Technical support and software updates are considered distinct from the related software licenses but accounted for as a single performance obligation as they each constitute a series of distinct services that are substantially the same and have the same pattern of transfer to the customer. The transaction price allocated to software maintenance and support is recognized as revenue over time on a straight-line basis over the term of the maintenance and support contract. Maintenance and support fees are generally payable in advance on a monthly, quarterly, or annual basis over the term of the maintenance and support contract. Maintenance and support contracts are priced as a percentage of the associated software license.

10


 

Professional Services

The Company’s professional services revenue is primarily comprised of implementation services provided to customers. The majority of professional services engagements are billed to customers on a time and materials basis. The Company has determined that professional services provided to customers represent distinct performance obligations. These services may be provided on a stand-alone basis or bundled with other performance obligations, including subscription arrangements, software licenses, and maintenance and support services. The transaction price allocated to these performance obligations is recognized as revenue over time as the services are performed. In those limited instances where professional services arrangements are sold on a fixed price basis, revenue is recognized over time using an input measure of time incurred to date relative to total estimated time to be incurred at project completion. Invoices for all professional services arrangements are generally invoiced monthly in arrears.

The Company records reimbursable out-of-pocket expenses associated with professional services contracts in both revenue and cost of revenue.

Contracts with Multiple Performance Obligations

The Company’s contracts with customers can include multiple performance obligations, where the transaction price is allocated to each identified performance obligation based on their relative SSP. The Company’s contracts may also grant the customer an option to acquire additional products or services, which the Company assesses to determine whether or not any discount on the products or services is in excess of levels normally available to similar customers and, if so, accounts for the optional product or service as an additional performance obligation.

The Company typically determines SSP based on the observable prices of the promised goods or services charged when sold separately to customers, which are determined using contractually stated prices. In instances where SSP is not directly observable, the Company determines SSP based on its overall pricing objectives, taking into consideration market conditions and other factors, including customer size and geography. The various products and services comprising contracts with multiple performance obligations are typically capable of being distinct and accounted for as separate performance obligations. The Company allocates revenue to each of the performance obligations included in a contract with multiple performance obligations at the inception of the contract.

The SSP for perpetual or term license arrangements sold in contracts with multiple performance obligations is determined using the residual approach. The Company utilizes the residual approach because the selling prices for software licenses is highly variable and a SSP is not discernible from past transactions or other observable evidence. Periodically, the Company evaluates whether the use of the residual approach remains appropriate for performance obligations associated with software licenses when sold as part of contracts with multiple performance obligations. As a result, if the SSP analysis illustrates that the selling prices for software licenses are no longer highly variable, the Company will utilize the relative allocation method for such arrangements.

Contract Modifications

The Company may enter into amendments to previously executed contracts which constitute a contract modification. The effect of a contract modification on the transaction price when the remaining products or services are not distinct is recognized to revenue on a cumulative catch-up basis. Contract modifications are accounted for prospectively when it results in the promise to deliver additional products and services that are distinct and the increase in the price of the contract corresponds to the SSP of the additional products or services.

Contract Balances

Contract assets and liabilities are presented net at the contract level for each reporting period. Contract assets consist of unbilled revenue and represent amounts under contracts with customers where revenue recognized exceeds the amount billed to the customer. Contract liabilities consist of deferred revenue and include billings and payments received in advance of revenue recognized. Deferred revenue that will be realized during the succeeding 12-month period is recorded as current, and the remaining balance is recorded as noncurrent.

For the three months ended November 30, 2020 and 2019 $10.5 million and $4.9 million, respectively, of the Company’s unbilled revenue balance that was included in the corresponding unbilled revenue balance at the beginning of the period presented became an unconditional right to payment and was billed to its customers.

For the three months ended November 30, 2020 and 2019, the Company recognized revenue of $14.8 million and $11.7 million, respectively, that was included in the corresponding deferred revenue balance at the beginning of the period presented.

11


 

Transaction Price Allocated to the Remaining Performance Obligations

Remaining performance obligations represent contracted revenue that has not yet been recognized, which includes deferred revenue and amounts that will be invoiced and recognized as revenue in future periods. As of November 30, 2020, approximately $458.1 million of revenue is expected to be recognized from remaining performance obligations in the amount of approximately $104.5 million in fiscal 2021 and approximately $353.6 million thereafter. The estimated revenues do not include unexercised contract renewals. The Company applied the practical expedient in accordance with ASC 606 to exclude amounts related to professional services contracts that are on a time and materials basis.

Fair Value Measurements

The Company measures certain financial assets and liabilities at fair value. Fair value is determined based upon the exit price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants, as determined by either the principal market or the most advantageous market.

Inputs used in the valuation techniques to derive fair values are classified based on a three-level hierarchy, as follows:

 

Level 1 Inputs: Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities accessible to the reporting entity at the measurement date.

 

Level 2 Inputs: Other than quoted prices included in Level 1 inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the asset or liability.

 

Level 3 Inputs: Unobservable inputs for the asset or liability used to measure fair value to the extent that observable inputs are not available, thereby allowing for situations in which there is little, if any, market activity for the asset or liability at measurement date.

The following tables present the Company’s financial assets and liabilities measured and recorded at fair value on a recurring basis using the above input categories as of November 30, 2020 and August 31, 2020:

The contingent earnout liability related to business combinations is recorded at fair value on the acquisition date and is adjusted each reporting period for changes in fair value, which can result from changes in anticipated payments and changes in assumed discount periods and rates.  These inputs are unobservable in the market and therefore categorized as level 3 inputs as defined above.  Quoted prices for liability classified stock appreciation rights are not readily available.  Accordingly, the Company uses
