Acquired Layered Insight, a Pioneer in Container-Native Application Protection
Announces Additional $100 million 2-Year Share Repurchase Program

Foster City, Calif., -- Oct. 30, 2018 -- Qualys, Inc. (NASDAQ: QLYS), a pioneer and leading provider of cloud-based security and compliance solutions, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018. For the quarter, the Company reported revenues of $71.7 million, net income under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") of $23.5 million, non-GAAP net income of $20.7 million, Adjusted EBITDA of $31.9 million, GAAP earnings per diluted share of $0.56, and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of $0.49.

"Our outperformance on third quarter results reflects our strong competitive position as a leading cloud platform for security and compliance solutions. The Qualys Cloud platform is now strategic to our customers as they seek to both consolidate vendors and accelerate their migration of workloads to the cloud. With our IT asset management (ITAM) application expected to go into general availability this quarter, our platform unifies IT, security and compliance in a single-pane-of-glass view with two-second visibility across on-premises assets, endpoints, clouds, and soon, mobile, OT and IOT environments. You will find at www.qualys.com/visibility a short video that shows our Cloud Platform in action," said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO of Qualys.


Global IT Asset Inventory with 2-Second Visibility and Two-Way CMDB Synchronization

"We're also delighted to announce the acquisition of Layered Insight, which is highly strategic because we believe that our integrated solution will be at the forefront of container security. With a highly scalable architecture, Layered Insight adds run-time capabilities and automated enforcement to our current Container Security solution and makes it an ideal solution for Intelligent Edge and serverless Container-as-a-Service (CaaS) deployments like AWS Fargate, which is quickly becoming the future of containers like IaaS and PaaS."

"Furthermore, we are pleased to announce an increase in our share repurchase program, which reflects our commitment to minimize dilution and our belief in the inherent profitability of our Cloud model to continue growing shareholder value."

Legal Notice Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Forward-looking statements generally relate to future events or our future financial or operating performance. Forward-looking statements in this press release include, but are not limited to, statements related to: our expectations regarding our IT asset management application; the capabilities of our platform; the related benefits of our new strategic acquisition; our belief in the inherent profitability of our cloud model to continue growing shareholder value; our strategy and our business model and our ability to execute such strategy; our guidance for revenues, GAAP EPS and non-GAAP EPS for the fourth quarter and full year 2018, and our expectations for the number of weighted average diluted shares outstanding and effective income tax rate for the fourth quarter and full year 2018. Our expectations and beliefs regarding these matters may not materialize, and actual results in future periods are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected. These risks include our ability to continue to develop platform capabilities and solutions; the ability of our platform and solutions to perform as intended; customer acceptance and purchase of our existing solutions and new solutions; real or perceived defects, errors or vulnerabilities in our products or services; our ability to retain existing customers and generate new customers; the budgeting cycles, seasonal buying patterns and length of our sales cycle; our ability to manage costs as we increase our customer base and the number of our platform solutions; the market for cloud solutions for IT security and compliance not increasing at the rate we expect; competition from other products and services; fluctuations in currency exchange rates, unexpected fluctuations in our effective tax rate on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis, our ability to effectively manage our rapid growth and our ability to anticipate future market needs and opportunities; any unanticipated accounting charges; and general market, political, economic and business conditions in the United States as well as globally. The forward-looking statements contained in this press release are also subject to other risks and uncertainties, including those more fully described in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 2, 2018.

The forward-looking statements in this press release are based on information available to Qualys as of the date hereof, and Qualys disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking statements, except as required by law.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, Qualys monitors operating measures of non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net income per diluted share and Adjusted EBITDA. In computing these non-GAAP financial measures, Qualys excludes the effects of stock-based compensation expense, non-recurring expenses and acquisition-related expenses that do not reflect ongoing costs of operating the business. Qualys also monitors Adjusted EBITDA (defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, other (income) expense, net, non-recurring expenses, and acquisition-related expenses that do not reflect ongoing costs of operating the business). Qualys believes that these non-GAAP operating metrics help illustrate underlying trends in its business that could otherwise be masked by the effect of the income or expenses, as well as the related tax effects, that are excluded in non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net income per diluted share and Adjusted EBITDA.

Furthermore, Qualys uses these operating measures to establish budgets and operational goals for managing its business and evaluating its performance. Qualys believes that non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net income per diluted share, and Adjusted EBITDA provide additional tools for investors to use in comparing its recurring core business operating results over multiple periods with other companies in its industry. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share for the three months ended September 30, 2018 excludes $0.8 million of amortization of intangibles from acquisitions of Nevis Networks, NetWatcher and 1Mobility and $0.04 million of compensation expense from the acquisition of NetWatcher that do not reflect ongoing costs of operating the business.

Qualys has not reconciled non-GAAP net income per diluted share guidance to GAAP net income per diluted share because Qualys does not provide guidance on the various reconciling cash and non-cash items between GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income (i.e., stock-based compensation and non-recurring expenses). The actual dollar amount of reconciling items in the fourth quarter and full year 2018 is likely to have a significant impact on the Company's GAAP net income per diluted share in the fourth quarter and full year 2018. Accordingly, a reconciliation of the non-GAAP net income per diluted share guidance to the GAAP net income per diluted share guidance is not available without unreasonable effort.

In order to provide a more complete picture of recurring core operating business results, the Company's non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share include tax adjustments required to achieve the effective tax rate on a non-GAAP basis, which could differ from the GAAP effective tax rate. The Company believes its estimated non-GAAP effective tax rate of 23% in 2018 is a reasonable estimate under its global operating structure. The Company intends to re-evaluate the non-GAAP effective tax rate on an annual basis. However, it may adjust this rate during the year to take into account events or trends that it believes materially impact the estimated annual rate. The non-GAAP effective tax rate could be subject to change for a number of reasons, including but not limited to, significant changes resulting from tax legislation, material changes in geographic mix of revenues and expenses and other significant events.

The presentation of this non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures discussed in this press release to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is included with the financial statements contained in this press release. Management uses both GAAP and non-GAAP information in evaluating and operating its business internally and as such has determined that it is important to provide this information to investors.
