LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Rimini Street, Inc. (Nasdaq: RMNI), a global provider of enterprise software products and services, the leading third-party support provider for Oracle and SAP software products and a Salesforce partner, today announced financial and operating results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2022.
“Though global macro environment challenges including currency exchange rate headwinds negatively impacted third quarter financial and operating results, we achieved multi-million-dollar sales wins in diverse industries, strong subscription renewals and extensions, a continued increase in cross-sales of our expanded solutions portfolio to existing clients, and we maintained our excellent, industry-leading client satisfaction rating for cases and onboarding,” stated Seth A. Ravin, Rimini Street co-founder, CEO and chairman of the board. “We believe Rimini Street’s portfolio of IT solutions provides the services many organizations need today around their enterprise software systems, and provides industry-leading value, ROI and proven engineering capability. We remain focused on actions and investments to take advantage of market opportunities and re-accelerate growth.”
“For the third quarter, we achieved record revenue of $101.9 million, a higher year over year Revenue Retention Rate of 94% on subscription revenue and delivered a gross margin greater than 61% while making significant investments and changes focused on supporting sales and delivery of our expanded portfolio of services globally,” stated Michael L. Perica, Rimini Street chief financial officer. “Also during the quarter, Rimini Street repurchased 200,000 common shares at a cost of $992,000.”
Subsequent to the third quarter, on October 21, 2022, in connection with a lawsuit Rimini Street filed against Oracle in 2014 where Oracle filed counterclaims, Oracle withdrew certain of its counterclaims and all its claims against Rimini Street and our CEO, Seth A. Ravin, for monetary relief of any kind under any legal theory in the litigation. Rimini Street’s remaining claims and Oracle’s remaining counterclaims seeking only equitable relief are presently scheduled to be tried in the United States Federal Court for the District of Nevada on November 29, 2022. Please see Rimini Street’s Quarterly Report on SEC Form 10-Q filed today for additional information and disclosures regarding litigation with Oracle.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Certain Key Metrics
To provide investors and others with additional information regarding Rimini Street’s results, we have disclosed the following non-GAAP financial measures and certain key metrics. We have described below Active Clients, Annualized Recurring Revenue and Revenue Retention Rate, each of which is a key operational metric for our business. In addition, we have disclosed the following non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and Billings. Rimini Street has provided in the tables above a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure used in this earnings release to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Due to a valuation allowance for our deferred tax assets, there were no tax effects associated with any of our non-GAAP adjustments. These non-GAAP financial measures are also described below.
The primary purpose of using non-GAAP measures is to provide supplemental information that management believes may prove useful to investors and to enable investors to evaluate our results in the same way management does. We also present the non-GAAP financial measures because we believe they assist investors in comparing our performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis, as well as comparing our results against the results of other companies, by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance. Specifically, management uses these non-GAAP measures as measures of operating performance; to prepare our annual operating budget; to allocate resources to enhance the financial performance of our business; to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies; to provide consistency and comparability with past financial performance; to facilitate a comparison of our results with those of other companies, many of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results; and in communications with our board of directors concerning our financial performance. Investors should be aware however, that not all companies define these non-GAAP measures consistently.
Billings represents the change in deferred revenue for the current period plus revenue for the current period.
Active Client is a distinct entity that purchases our services to support a specific product, including a company, an educational or government institution, or a business unit of a company. For example, we count as two separate active clients when support for two different products is being provided to the same entity. We believe that our ability to expand our active clients is an indicator of the growth of our business, the success of our sales and marketing activities, and the value that our services bring to our clients.
Annualized Recurring Revenue is the amount of subscription revenue recognized during a fiscal quarter and multiplied by four. This gives us an indication of the revenue that can be earned in the following 12-month period from our existing client base assuming no cancellations or price changes occur during that period. Subscription revenue excludes any non-recurring revenue, which has been insignificant to date.
Revenue Retention Rate is the actual subscription revenue (dollar-based) recognized over a 12-month period from customers that were clients on the day prior to the start of such 12-month period, divided by our Annualized Recurring Revenue as of the day prior to the start of the 12-month period.
Non-GAAP Operating Income is operating income adjusted to exclude: litigation costs and related recoveries, net, stock-based compensation expense and impairment charge related to operating right-of-use assets. The exclusions are discussed in further detail below.
Non-GAAP Net Income is net income adjusted to exclude: litigation costs and related recoveries, net, loss on change in fair value of redeemable warrants, stock-based compensation expense and impairment charge related to operating right-of-use assets. These exclusions are discussed in further detail below.
Specifically, management is excluding the following items from its non-GAAP financial measures, as applicable, for the periods presented:
Litigation Costs and Related Recoveries, Net: Litigation costs and the associated insurance and appeal recoveries relate to outside costs of litigation activities. These costs and recoveries reflect the ongoing litigation we are involved with, and do not relate to the day-to-day operations or our core business of serving our clients.
Gain (loss) on Change in Fair Value of Redeemable Warrants: We have excluded the gains and losses on redeemable warrants related to the change in fair value of these instruments given the financial nature of this fair value requirement. We are not able to manage these amounts as part of our business operations nor are the costs core to servicing our clients and therefore we have excluded them.
Stock-Based Compensation Expense: Our compensation strategy includes the use of stock-based compensation to attract and retain employees. This strategy is principally aimed at aligning the employee interests with those of our stockholders and to achieve long-term employee retention, rather than to motivate or reward operational performance for any particular period. As a result, stock-based compensation expense varies for reasons that are generally unrelated to operational decisions and performance in any particular period.
Impairment Charges Related to Operating Lease Right-of-Use Assets: This relates to an impairment charge related to our leased assets for a portion of one of our locations as we no longer use the space.
EBITDA is net income adjusted to exclude: interest expense, income tax expense, and depreciation and amortization expense.
Adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA adjusted to exclude: litigation costs and related recoveries, net, gain (loss) on change in fair value of redeemable warrants, stock-based compensation expense and impairment charge related to operating right-of-use assets, as discussed above.
