Yandex Announces Second Quarter 2018 Financial Results

July 26, 2018

MOSCOW and AMSTERDAM, the Netherlands, July 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Yandex (NASDAQ:YNDX), one of Europe's largest internet companies and the leading search provider in Russia, today announced its unaudited financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Deconsolidation of Yandex.Market

On April 27, 2018, Yandex and Sberbank formed a joint venture based on the Yandex.Market platform. Since that date, each of Yandex and Sberbank hold an equal number of the outstanding shares in Yandex.Market, with up to 10% of outstanding shares allocated to management and an equity incentive pool. Accordingly, starting April 27, 2018, we deconsolidated Yandex.Market from Yandex’s consolidated financial results and, under the equity method of accounting, we record our share of Yandex.Market’s financial results within the other income/(loss), net line in the consolidated statements of income. Therefore, this financial release presents:

Consolidated financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2018, which include the results of Yandex.Market for 27 days in Q2 2018 and its results for the full quarter Q2 2017.
Consolidated financial results for the six months ended June 30, 2018, which include the results of Yandex.Market for the full quarter Q1 2018 and 27 days in Q2 2018 and its results for the full H1 2017.

Consolidated Operating Costs and Expenses

Yandex’s operating costs and expenses consist of cost of revenues, product development expenses, sales, general and administrative expenses (SG&A) and depreciation and amortization expenses (D&A). Apart from D&A, each of the above expense categories include personnel-related costs and expenses, relevant office space rental, and related share-based compensation expense. Increases across all cost categories reflect investments in overall growth. In Q2 2018 Yandex's headcount increased by 154 full-time employees. The total number of full-time employees was 8,288 as of June 30, 2018, up by 2% compared with March 31, 2018, and up 27% from June 30, 2017. Excluding the impact of the deconsolidation of Yandex.Market, the growth in the number of full-time employees was 12% compared with March 31, 2018 and 40% from June 30, 2017.

Other cost of revenues in Q2 2018 increased 130% compared with Q2 2017, mainly due to an increase of Taxi related outsourced costs and services provided to Taxi corporate clients, for which revenue and related costs are recorded on a gross basis.

SG&A expenses grew 45% in Q2 2018 compared to Q2 2017. The growth was mainly driven by our continuing investments in advertising and marketing to support our business units and core business, as well as by the growth of personnel costs due to new hires and salary increases.

Share-based compensation (SBC) expense

SBC expense is included in each of the cost of revenues, product development, and SG&A categories discussed above.

D&A expense increased 4% in Q2 2018 compared with Q2 2017.

Adjusted EBITDA:

Adjusted EBITDA excluding Yandex.Market increased 32% in Q2 2018 compared with Q2 2017.

Adjusted EBITDA of Taxi was negative RUB 1,882 million in Q2 2018. Adjusted EBITDA loss of Yandex.Taxi includes the full quarter of Uber losses and our investments in Food Delivery Business.

Interest income in Q2 2018 was RUB 817 million, up compared with RUB 688 million in Q2 2017.

Interest expense in Q2 2018 was RUB 243 million, up from RUB 217 million in Q2 2017.

Foreign exchange gain in Q2 2018 was RUB 2,085 million, compared with a foreign exchange gain of RUB 1,273 million in Q2 2017. This gain reflects the depreciation of the Russian ruble during Q2 2018 from RUB 57.2649 to $1.00 on March 31, 2018, to RUB 62.7565 to $1.00 on June 30, 2018. Yandex's Russian operating subsidiaries' functional currency is the Russian ruble, and therefore changes due to exchange rate fluctuations in the ruble value of these subsidiaries' monetary assets and liabilities that are denominated in other currencies are recognized as foreign exchange gains or losses within the Other income/(loss), net line in the condensed consolidated statements of income. Although the U.S. dollar value of Yandex's U.S. dollar-denominated assets and liabilities was not impacted by these currency fluctuations, they resulted in an upward revaluation of the ruble equivalent of these U.S. dollar-denominated monetary assets and liabilities in Q2 2018.

Other income, net in Q2 2018 was RUB 30,668 million, significantly increased compared with RUB 1,389 million in Q2 2017, and included a gain from deconsolidation of Yandex.Market following the formation of the Yandex.Market joint venture between Sberbank and Yandex on April 27, 2018, in the amount of approximately RUB 28 billion. Starting April 27, 2018, the remaining investment in Yandex.Market is accounted under equity method and Yandex’s share of the results of the investee is recorded within the other income, net line in the consolidated statements of income.

Income tax expense for Q2 2018 was RUB 2,259 million, up from RUB 1,373 million in Q2 2017. Our effective tax rate of 6.3% in Q2 2018 was lower than in Q2 2017, primarily due to the gain from deconsolidation of Yandex.Market recognized in Q2 2018 which is non-taxable. Adjusted for this effect, SBC expense and also for deferred tax asset valuation allowances provided on operations of our newly acquired Uber and Food Delivery businesses, our effective tax rate for Q2 2018 was 23.1%, compared with 23.1% for Q2 2017 as also adjusted for SBC expense, provision of certain reserves resulting from sanctions in Ukraine in Q2 2017, partly offset by the effects of certain provisions reversed in Q2 2017 related to the results of prior years' tax audits.

Net income was RUB 33.3 billion ($531.1 million) in Q2 2018, up 857% compared with Q2 2017, mainly due to effect of deconsolidation of Yandex.Market. Excluding Yandex.Market, net income increased 67% in Q2 2018 compared to Q2 2017.

Adjusted net income in Q2 2018 was RUB 5.1 billion ($80.9 million), a 27% increase from Q2 2017. Excluding Yandex.Market, adjusted net income increased 44% in Q2 2018 compared to Q2 2017.

Adjusted net income margin was 17.1% in Q2 2018, compared with 18.1% in Q2 2017.

As of June 30, 2018, Yandex had cash, cash equivalents and term deposits of RUB 97.0 billion ($1,546.4 million), including cash, cash equivalents and term deposits of Yandex.Taxi in total amount of RUB 27.2 billion ($433.0 million). Cash, cash equivalents and term deposits of the Yandex.Market joint venture, which are not included in Yandex N.V.  consolidated balance sheet, amounted to RUB 32.1 billion ($511.8 million) as of June 30, 2018.

Net cash flow provided by operating activities for Q2 2018 was RUB 6.8 billion ($108.0 million) and capital expenditures were RUB 9.0 billion ($143.5 million).

During Q2 2018 there were no repurchases of convertible debt notes.

Redeemable noncontrolling interests presented in our condensed consolidated balance sheets relate to the equity incentive arrangements we have made available to the senior employees of the Taxi, Classifieds and E-commerce segments, pursuant to which such persons are eligible to acquire depositary receipts, or receive options to acquire depositary receipts, which entitle them to economic interests in the respective business unit subsidiaries.

The total number of shares issued and outstanding as of June 30, 2018 was 328,402,391 including 290,523,732 Class A shares, 37,878,658 Class B shares, and one Priority share and excluding 1,913,923 Class A shares held in treasury and all Class C shares outstanding solely as a result of the conversion of Class B shares into Class A shares. All such Class C shares will be cancelled.

There were also employee share options outstanding to purchase up to an additional 3.6 million shares, at a weighted average exercise price of $34.19 per share, 0.6 million of which were fully vested; equity-settled share appreciation rights (SARs) for 0.2 million shares, at a weighted average measurement price of $32.25, all of which, excluding SARs for approximately 1,000 shares, were fully vested; and restricted share units (RSUs) covering 13.5 million shares, of which RSUs to acquire 4.7 million shares were fully vested.

Financial outlook

Based on our recent performance and taking into account the deconsolidation of Yandex.Market from our consolidated financial results, we now provide revenue outlook for the full year 2018 which excludes Yandex.Market from prior periods. We currently expect our ruble-based revenues excluding Yandex.Market from 2017 and 2018 results to grow in the range of 30% to 35% for the full year 2018 compared with 2017.

Based on the recent performance of Search and Portal, we narrow our outlook and now expect our Search and Portal ruble-based revenue growth to be in the range of 20% to 22% in the full year 2018 compared with 2017.

Actual results may differ materially from the results predicted or implied by such statements, and our reported results should not be considered as an indication of future performance.

All information in this release and in the attachments is as of July 26, 2018, and Yandex undertakes no duty to update this information unless required by law.

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, we present the following non-GAAP financial measures: ex-TAC revenues, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted ex-TAC EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, adjusted net income margin and adjusted ex-TAC net income margin. The presentation of these financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the tables captioned “Reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to the nearest comparable U.S. GAAP measures”, included following the accompanying financial tables. We define the various non-GAAP financial measures we use as follows:

  • Ex-TAC revenues means U.S. GAAP revenues less total traffic acquisition costs (TAC)
  • Adjusted EBITDA means U.S. GAAP net income plus (1) depreciation and amortization, (2) SBC expense, (3) accrual of expense related to the contingent compensation that may be payable to employees in connection with certain business combinations, (4) interest expense, (5) provision for income taxes, and (6) operating losses resulting from sanctions in Ukraine imposed in May 2017, less (1) interest income, (2) other (income)/loss, net,
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin means adjusted EBITDA divided by U.S. GAAP revenues
  • Adjusted ex-TAC EBITDA margin means adjusted EBITDA divided by ex-TAC revenues
  • Adjusted net income means U.S. GAAP net income plus (1) SBC expense adjusted for the income tax reduction attributable to SBC expense, (2) accrual of expense related to the contingent compensation that may be payable to certain employees in connection with certain business combinations, (3) losses from repurchases of our convertible notes adjusted for the related reduction in income tax, (4) amortization of debt discount related to our convertible debt adjusted for the related reduction in income tax and (5) losses resulting from sanctions in Ukraine imposed in May 2017, less (1) foreign exchange (gains)/losses adjusted for increase/(reduction) in income tax attributable to foreign exchange (gains)/losses, (2) effect of deconsolidation of Yandex.Market
  • Adjusted net income margin means adjusted net income divided by U.S. GAAP revenues
  • Adjusted ex-TAC net income margin means adjusted net income divided by ex-TAC revenues

These non-GAAP financial measures are used by management for evaluating financial performance as well as decision-making. Management believes that these metrics reflect the organic, core operating performance of the company, and therefore are useful to analysts and investors in providing supplemental information that helps them understand, model and forecast the evolution of our operating business.

Although our management uses these non-GAAP financial measures for operational decision-making and considers these financial measures to be useful for analysts and investors, we recognize that there are a number of limitations related to such measures. In particular, it should be noted that several of these measures exclude some recurring costs, particularly share-based compensation. In addition, the components of the costs that we exclude in our calculation of the measures described above may differ from the components that our peer companies exclude when they report their results of operations.

Below we describe why we make particular adjustments to certain U.S. GAAP financial measures:

TAC

We believe that it may be useful for investors and analysts to review certain measures both in accordance with U.S. GAAP and net of the effect of TAC, which we view as comparable to sales commissions but, unlike sales commissions, are not deducted from U.S. GAAP revenues. By presenting revenue, adjusted EBITDA margin and adjusted net income margin net of TAC, we believe that investors and analysts are able to obtain a clearer picture of our business without the impact of the revenues we share with our partners.

SBC

SBC is a significant expense item, and an important part of our compensation and incentive programs. As it is a non-cash charge, however, and highly dependent on our share price at the time of equity award grants, we believe that it is useful for investors and analysts to see certain financial measures excluding the impact of these charges in order to obtain a clearer picture of our operating performance.

Acquisition-related costs

We may incur expenses in connection with acquisitions that are not indicative of our recurring core operating performance. In particular, we are required under U.S. GAAP to accrue as expense the contingent compensation that is payable to certain employees in connection with certain business combinations. We eliminate these acquisition-related expenses from adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income to provide management and investors a tool for comparing on a period-to-period basis our operating performance in the ordinary course of operations.

Foreign exchange gains

Because we hold significant assets and liabilities in currencies other than our Russian ruble operating currency, and because foreign exchange fluctuations are outside of our operational control, we believe that it is useful to present adjusted net income and related margin measures excluding these effects, in order to provide greater clarity regarding our operating performance.

Amortization of debt discount

We also adjust net income for interest expense representing amortization of the debt discount related to our convertible notes issued in Q4 2013 and Q1 2014.We have eliminated this expense from adjusted net income as it is non-cash in nature and is not indicative of our ongoing operating performance.

Gains and losses from repurchases of convertible debt

Adjusted net income for Q2 2017 also excludes a loss from the repurchase of $4.0 million in principal of our 1.125% convertible senior notes due 2018 for approximately $3.9 million. We have eliminated this loss from adjusted net income for the three months ended June 30, 2017 as it is not indicative of our ongoing operating performance.

Losses resulting from sanctions in Ukraine

We also adjusted our net income and EBITDA in 2017 for losses and gains from write-off of assets and liabilities in our Ukrainian legal entities. In May 2017, the government of Ukraine imposed sanctions on our Ukrainian operations. The sanctions resulted in the freezing of the assets held by our Ukrainian legal entities and restricting our services in Ukraine. We believe that it is useful to present adjusted net income and adjusted EBITDA measures excluding the one-off impact of these events, which are not related to our operating activities.

Effect of deconsolidation of Yandex.Market

Adjusted net income also excludes a gain from deconsolidation of Yandex.Market following the formation of Yandex.Market joint venture by Yandex and Sberbank in April 2018. We believe that it is useful to present adjusted net income and related margin measures excluding the effect of this significant item and to present certain other financial metrics described above in order to provide a clearer picture of our underlying operating performance and to provide meaningful period-to-period comparisons.

The tables at the end of this release provide detailed reconciliations of each non-GAAP financial measure we use to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure.
