Section 2: EX-99.1 (EXHIBIT 99.1)

Exhibit
Exhibit 99.1

July 19, 2018
Limelight Networks Reports Strong Financial Results for the Second Quarter of 2018
Revenue of $50.2 million, up 11 percent year over year
GAAP gross margin of 49.4%, up 230 basis points, year over year
GAAP EPS of $0.14 and Non-GAAP EPS of $0.04
Cash and marketable securities of $45.6 million
Raises revenue guidance for full year 2018, with lower capital expenditures
Limelight Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq:LLNW) (Limelight), a global leader in digital content delivery, today reported revenue of $50.2 million for the second quarter of 2018, up 11% compared to $45.4 million in the second quarter of 2017. Currency did not materially impact reported revenue in the quarter.
Gross margin was 49.4% in the second quarter of 2018, an increase of 230 basis points from 47.1% in the second quarter of 2017.
On a GAAP basis, Limelight reported net income of $15.2 million, or $0.14 per basic share and $0.13 per fully diluted share, for the second quarter of 2018, compared to a net loss of $1.6 million, or $0.01 per basic share, in the second quarter of 2017. Net income in the second quarter of 2018 included $14.9 million of non-operating income ($0.13 per basic share and $0.12 per fully diluted share) related to the settlement and patent license agreement.
Non-GAAP net income was $4.0 million, or $0.04 per basic share, for the second quarter of 2018, compared to $2.9 million, or $0.03 per basic share, in the second quarter of 2017.
EBITDA was $20.3 million for the second quarter of 2018, compared to $3.4 million for the second quarter of 2017. Adjusted EBITDA was $9.2 million for the second quarter of 2018, compared to $7.9 million for the second quarter of 2017.
Limelight ended the second quarter with 549 employees and employee equivalents, up from 544 at the end of the first quarter of 2018, and up from 533 in the year ago period.
“Limelight’s customers rewarded us once again in the second quarter of 2018, for our commitment to providing them with the best tools, value, reliability, and customer care. Limelight’s revenues grew more than 11% over the prior year quarter, driven by video delivery services. Limelight generated strong operating cash flow for the quarter, and further strengthened its balance sheet. After raising full-year guidance in April, we remain on track to achieve those results, on even lower capital expenditures. We’re pleased with Limelight’s results through the half-year mark, and owe great thanks to each of our committed employees for putting us on track to make 2018 our best year yet,” said Bob Lento, Chief Executive Officer, Limelight Networks.
“Financial discipline, along with continued investments in people, technology, and services, and our deep understanding of the intricacies of delivering content closer to the consumer, uniquely position Limelight to capitalize on emerging opportunities in low-latency, secure, Edge computing, analytics and communications. We continue to find opportunities to tune our infrastructure for sustained, cost efficient growth, to fully exploit Limelight’s unique Edge-centric platform, and to generate higher shareholder returns,” Lento added.
Based on current conditions, we are raising our previously issued guidance on April 19, 2018 for revenue from $198 to $202 million to $200 to $203 million. Gross margin percentage



Exhibit 99.1

improvement, GAAP earnings per share, non-GAAP earnings per share, and adjusted EBITDA remain unchanged. We now expect capital expenditures to be below $20 million for the full year, down from our previous expectation of between $20 and $22 million.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To evaluate our business, we consider and use non-generally accepted accounting principles (Non-GAAP) net income (loss), EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as supplemental measures of operating performance. These measures include the same adjustments that management takes into account when it reviews and assesses operating performance on a period-to-period basis. We consider Non-GAAP net income (loss) to be an important indicator of overall business performance. We define Non-GAAP net income (loss) to be U.S. GAAP net income (loss), adjusted to exclude the settlement and patent license income, share-based compensation and litigation expenses. We believe that EBITDA provides a useful metric to investors to compare us with other companies within our industry and across industries. We define EBITDA as U.S. GAAP net income (loss) adjusted to exclude depreciation and amortization, interest expense, interest and other (income) expense, and income tax expense (benefit). We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA adjusted to exclude the settlement and patent license income, share-based compensation and litigation expenses. We use Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure to



Exhibit 99.1

review and assess operating performance. Our management uses these Non-GAAP financial measures because, collectively, they provide valuable information on the performance of our on-going operations, excluding non-cash charges, taxes and non-core activities (including interest payments related to financing activities). These measures also enable our management to compare the results of our on-going operations from period to period, and allow management to review the performance of our on-going operations against our peer companies and against other companies in our industry and adjacent industries. We believe these measures also provide similar insights to investors, and enable investors to review our results of operations “through the eyes of management.”
Furthermore, our management uses these Non-GAAP financial measures to assist them in making decisions regarding our strategic priorities and areas for future investment and focus.
The terms Non-GAAP net income (loss), EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not defined under U.S. GAAP, and are not measures of operating income, operating performance or liquidity presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Our Non-GAAP net income (loss), EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as analytical tools, and when assessing our operating performance, Non-GAAP net income (loss), EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for net income (loss) or other consolidated income statement data prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Some of these limitations include, but are not limited to:
EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect our cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
these measures do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
Non-GAAP net income (loss) and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the cash requirements necessary for litigation costs, including provision for litigation and litigation expenses;
these measures do not reflect the interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on our debt that we may incur;
these measures do not reflect income taxes or the cash requirements for any tax payments;
although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will be replaced sometime in the future, and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements;
while share-based compensation is a component of operating expense, the impact on our financial statements compared to other companies can vary significantly due to such factors as the assumed life of the options and the assumed volatility of our common stock; and
other companies may calculate Non-GAAP net income (loss), EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.
We compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our U.S. GAAP results and using Non-GAAP net income (loss), EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA only as supplemental support for management's analysis of business performance. Non-GAAP net income (loss), EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are calculated as follows for the periods presented in thousands:

For future periods, we are unable to provide a reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss) as a result of the uncertainty regarding, and the potential variability of, the amounts of depreciation and amortization, interest expense, interest and other (income) expense and income tax expense, that may be incurred in the future.
