(Nasdaq: RXT), a leading end-to-end multicloud technology solutions company, today announced results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2020.Rackspace Technology Chief Executive Officer Kevin Jones commented, “We are proud and very excited to report our second quarter results following our IPO earlier this month. The quarter was highlighted by accelerating revenue growth driven by our ramping sales bookings growth over the past year. This quarter’s impressive 107% growth in sales bookings further validates our conviction in the massive opportunity presented by the tectonic shift to multicloud. Rackspace Technology is uniquely well positioned as a leading end-to-end multicloud solutions provider and each one of our nearly 7,000 Rackers are eager to serve that market need each and every day.”Second Quarter 2020 ResultsRevenue was $657 million in the second quarter of 2020, an increase of 9% as compared to revenue of $602 million in the second quarter of 2019. Revenue for the second quarter of 2020 was positively impacted by the acquisition of Onica Holdings LLC (“Onica”) in November 2019 as well as new customer acquisitions and growing customer spend in our Multicloud Services and Apps & Cross Platform segments. On a constant currency basis, after giving effect to the acquisition of Onica as if it had occurred on January 1, 2019, revenue increased by 4% in the second quarter of 2020 as compared to the second quarter of 2019. Revenue from our Core Segments (“Core Revenue”), comprised of Multicloud Services and Apps & Cross Platform, increased 13% in the second quarter of 2020 as compared to the second quarter of 2019. On a constant currency basis, after giving effect to the acquisition of Onica as if it had occurred on January 1, 2019, Core Revenue increased 7% in the second quarter of 2020 as compared to the second quarter of 2019.Bookings were $288 million in the second quarter of 2020, an increase of 107% as compared to Bookings of $139 million in the second quarter of 2019.Net loss was $33 million in the second quarter of 2020, compared to net income of $63 million in the second quarter of 2019.  The year-over-year change was primarily driven by a $141 million unrealized gain on an equity investment recorded during the second quarter of 2019, partially offset by the corresponding income tax impact of the gain.Adjusted EBITDA was $188 million in the second quarter of 2020, an increase of 3% as compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $183 million in the second quarter of 2019.Capital expenditures were $51 million in the second quarter of 2020, compared to $41 million in the second quarter of 2019.As of June 30, 2020, we had cash and cash equivalents of $161 million with no balance outstanding on our Revolving Credit Facility.Full-year 2020 Financial OutlookDefinitions of non-GAAP financial measures and the reconciliations to the most directly comparable measures in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”) are provided in subsequent sections of this press release narrative and supplemental schedules. Rackspace Technology has not reconciled Consolidated revenue growth, Year-over-Year in constant currency or Core Revenue growth, Year-over-Year in constant currency guidance to the most directly comparable GAAP measures because it does not provide guidance on forward-looking foreign exchange rates given their potential variability, which could be significant. Further, Rackspace Technology has not reconciled Adjusted EBITDA or Adjusted Earnings Per Share guidance to the most directly comparable GAAP measure because it does not provide guidance on GAAP net income (loss) or the reconciling items between Adjusted EBITDA and GAAP net income (loss) as a result of the uncertainty regarding, and the potential variability of, certain of these items, such as share-based compensation expense. Accordingly, a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure guidance to the corresponding GAAP measure is not available without unreasonable effort. With respect to Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Earnings Per Share guidance, adjustments in future periods are generally expected to be similar to the kinds of charges and costs excluded from Adjusted EBITDA in prior periods, but the impact of such adjustments could be significant.Conference Call and WebcastRackspace Technology will hold a conference call today, August 31, 2020, at 4:00pm CT / 5:00pm ET to discuss its second quarter 2020 results.

These non-GAAP financial measures exclude the impact of certain costs, losses and gains that are required to be included in our profit and loss measures under GAAP. Although we believe these measures are useful to investors and analysts for the same reasons they are useful to management, as described in the accompanying pages, these measures are not a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP financial measures or disclosures. Other companies may calculate similarly-titled non-GAAP measures differently, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures. We have reconciled each of these non-GAAP measures to the applicable most comparable GAAP measure in the accompanying pages.IR Contact

KEY OPERATING METRICS
NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURESConstant Currency RevenueWe use constant currency revenue as an additional metric for understanding and assessing our growth excluding the effect of foreign currency rate fluctuations on our international business operations. Constant currency information compares results between periods as if exchange rates had remained constant period over period and is calculated by translating the non-U.S. dollar income statement balances for the most current period to U.S. dollars using the average exchange rate from the comparative period rather than the actual exchange rates in effect during the respective period. We also believe this is an important metric to help investors evaluate our performance in comparison to prior periods.
Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted EBIT and Adjusted EBITDAWe present Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted EBIT and Adjusted EBITDA because they are a basis upon which management assesses our performance and we believe they are useful to evaluating our financial performance. We believe that excluding items from net income that may not be indicative of, or are unrelated to, our core operating results, and that may vary in frequency or magnitude, enhances the comparability of our results and provides a better baseline for analyzing trends in our business.We define Adjusted Net Income (Loss) as net income (loss) adjusted to exclude the impact of non-cash charges for share-based compensation and cash charges related to the settlement of share-based awards in connection with the November 2016 merger, transaction-related costs and adjustments, restructuring and transformation charges, management fees, the amortization of acquired intangible assets and certain other non-operating, non-recurring or non-core gains and losses, as well as the tax effects of these non-GAAP adjustments.We define Adjusted EBIT as net income (loss), plus interest expense and income taxes, further adjusted to exclude the impact of non-cash charges for share-based compensation and cash charges related to the settlement of share-based awards in connection with the November 2016 merger, transaction-related costs and adjustments, restructuring and transformation charges, management fees, the amortization of acquired intangible assets and certain other non-operating, non-recurring or non-core gains and losses.We define Adjusted EBITDA as Adjusted EBIT plus depreciation and amortization.Adjusted EBIT and Adjusted EBITDA are management’s principal metrics for measuring our underlying financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA, along with other quantitative and qualitative information, is also the principal financial measure used by management and our board of directors in determining performance-based compensation for our management and key employees.These non-GAAP measures are not intended to imply that we would have generated higher income or avoided net losses if the November 2016 merger and the subsequent transactions and initiatives had not occurred. In the future we may incur expenses or charges such as those added back to calculate Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted EBIT or Adjusted EBITDA. Our presentation of Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted EBIT and Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by these items. Other companies, including our peer companies, may calculate similarly-titled measures in a different manner from us, and therefore, our non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly-tiled measures of other companies. Investors are cautioned against using these measures to the exclusion of our results in accordance with GAAP.
Adjusted Earnings Per Share (EPS)We define Adjusted EPS as Adjusted Net Income (Loss) divided by our GAAP average number of shares outstanding for the period on a diluted basis, after giving effect to the twelve-for-one stock split that was approved and effected on July 20, 2020 (the “Stock Split”), and further adjusted for the average number of shares associated with securities which are anti-dilutive to GAAP earnings per share but dilutive to Adjusted EPS. Management uses Adjusted EPS to evaluate the performance of our business on a comparable basis from period to period, including by adjusting for the impact of the issuance of shares that would be dilutive to Adjusted EPS.
