“The operational and financial improvements we implemented last year are delivering positive results as evidenced by our solid double-digit first quarter growth including a more than 10% increase in adjusted revenue excluding divestitures and a 32% increase in Adjusted EBITDA," said Jerre Stead, Executive Chairman and CEO of Clarivate. "As the COVID-19 pandemic grew, we took immediate actions to ensure the health and safety of our colleagues. We are also meeting the needs of our customers without disruption to any of the products and services we provide. The current environment presents some unique operating challenges requiring us to further control our costs to offset any short-term effects on our business. We are well-positioned to weather this current global crisis, while continuing to pursue our long-term growth objectives."






First Quarter 2020 Operating Results
Revenues, net, for the first quarter of 2020 increased $6.6 million, or 2.8%, to $240.6 million, compared to the prior-year period. Adjusted revenues, net, which excludes the impact of deferred revenues resulting from purchase accounting adjustments primarily related to recent acquisitions, increased $8.3 million or 3.5%, to $242.5 million, compared to the first quarter of 2019.
Subscription revenues for the first quarter of 2020 increased $0.7 million, or 0.4%, to $193.2 million, compared to the prior-year period, primarily driven by recent acquisitions, new business and price increases within both the Science Product Group and IP Product Group. The increase was partially offset by the MarkMonitor divested products in the current year period and a delay in a few contracts being renewed in the first quarter due to temporary customer workflow disruptions which are expected to be renewed during the second quarter. Excluding the impact of acquisitions and divestitures, organic subscription revenues increased 3.3% on a constant currency basis, compared to the first quarter of 2019.
Transactional revenues for the first quarter of 2020 increased $7.5 million, or 18.1%, to $49.2 million, compared to the prior-year period, due primarily to recent acquisitions and an increase from Techstreet sales, partially offset by divested businesses, a decrease in backfile sales and lower CompuMarkTM search volumes. Excluding the impact of acquisitions and divestitures, organic transactional revenues decreased 2.5% on a constant currency basis, compared to the first quarter of 2019.
Net loss for the first quarter of 2020 was $74.0 million, or ($0.22) per share, compared to a net loss of $59.3 million, or ($0.27) per share, in the prior-year period. The year-over-year decrease is due primarily to a significant increase in the provision for income taxes related to the addition of DRG tax provision, increases in taxable income and respective tax expense over the prior twelve month period, and higher transaction, share-based compensation and restructuring expenses in this year's first quarter.
Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2020 increased by 32.1% to $78.2 million, compared to the prior-year period, driven by higher revenues and ongoing cost savings initiatives.
Adjusted net income for the first quarter of 2020 was $25.5 million and adjusted diluted earnings per share was $0.07. The first quarter diluted earnings per share was negatively impacted by the increase in the provision for income taxes, as noted above, and an increase in the weighted-average shares outstanding due to the merger with Churchill Capital Corp in May 2019, the issuance of ordinary shares in conjunction with the acquisition of DRG and the exercise of public warrants during the first quarter of 2020.
Balance Sheet and Cash Flow
At March 31, 2020 cash and cash equivalents of $308.0 million increased $231.9 million, compared to December 31, 2019 due primarily to proceeds of $277.5 million received from the voluntary exercise of 24.1 million warrants in exchange for ordinary shares of Clarivate.
The Company's total debt outstanding at March 31, 2020 was $1,956.9 million, an increase of $291.9 million compared to December 31, 2019 due to a term loan of $360.0 million incurred during the first quarter of 2020 with net proceeds used to fund a portion of the DRG acquisition offset by a $65.0 million repayment of the revolver in full. Net debt at March 31, 2020 was $1,649.8 million, compared to $1,588.9 million as of December 31, 2019.
Net cash provided by operating activities was $46.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020, compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $42.5 million for the prior year period. Adjusted free cash flow for the first quarter was $77.9 million, an increase of $14.4 million, compared to the prior year period.

Updated Outlook for 2020 (forward-looking statement)





We started to see the early effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business in China, which we highlighted on our fourth quarter earnings call on February 27. We swiftly took steps to ensure the health and safety of our colleagues around the world by moving to a work from home status. Our teams have continued to meet or exceed their normal productivity and output levels including the content teams which are processing a high volume of material across our business groups. We have experienced no disruption to any of the services we provide to our customers as our industry leading portfolio of products are available online and can be accessed by users from anywhere.

Given the COVID-19 pandemic, we implemented a contingency plan and a tiered cost reduction approach. Our scenario assumptions include: 1) the virus is brought under control in late second quarter of 2020, 2) a gradual lifting of restrictions governing the free movement of labor in mid-to-late third quarter of 2020 and, 3) economic activity begins to recover early in the fourth quarter of 2020.

Adjusted diluted EPS for 2020 is calculated based on approximately 381.9 million fully diluted weighted average shares outstanding, an increase of approximately 52.1 million shares or 16%, compared to 329.8 million shares outstanding at the end of December 31, 2019. The increase in shares is primarily driven by the February 2020 offering of 27.6 million shares, with proceeds used to fund a portion of the cash consideration for the acquisition of DRG, and the issuance of approximately 29.0 million ordinary shares from the exercise of outstanding warrants.
The above outlook assumes no further currency movements, acquisitions, divestitures, or unanticipated events. See discussion of non-GAAP financial measures at the end of this release.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
We currently qualify as a foreign private issuer (“FPI”) under SEC rules. We will retain FPI status until at least December 31, 2020. However, we report our financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) and beginning with our 2019 annual report, we elected to file our periodic and current reports on Forms 10-K, 10-Q and 8-K.
Non-GAAP results are not presentations made in accordance with GAAP and are presented only as a supplement to our financial statements based on GAAP. Non-GAAP financial information is provided to enhance the reader’s understanding of our financial performance, but none of these non-GAAP financial measures are recognized terms under GAAP. They are not measures of financial condition or liquidity, and should not be considered as an alternative to profit or loss for the period determined in accordance with GAAP or operating cash flows determined in accordance with GAAP. As a result, you should not consider such measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial measures or results of operations calculated or determined in accordance with GAAP.
We use non-GAAP measures in our operational and financial decision-making. We believe that such measures allow us to focus on what we deem to be a more reliable indicator of ongoing operating performance and our ability to generate cash flow from operations and we also believe that investors may find these non-GAAP financial measures useful for the same reasons. Non-GAAP measures are frequently used by securities analysts, investors, and other interested parties in their evaluation of companies comparable to us, many of which present non-GAAP measures when reporting their results. These measures can be useful in evaluating our performance against our peer companies because we believe the measures provide users with valuable insight into key components of GAAP financial disclosures. However, non-GAAP measures have limitations as analytical tools and because not all companies use identical calculations, our presentation of non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.
Definitions and reconciliations of non-GAAP measures, such as Adjusted Revenues, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted EPS, Free Cash Flow, Adjusted Free Cash Flow and Standalone Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP measures are provided within the schedules attached to this release. Our presentation of non-GAAP measures should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by any of the adjusted items, or that any projections and estimates will be realized in their entirety or at all.

Forward-Looking Statements
This communication contains “forward-looking statements” as defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements, which express management’s current views concerning future business, events, trends, contingencies, financial performance, or financial condition, appear at various places in this communication and may use words like “aim,” “anticipate,” “assume,” “believe,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “forecast,” “future,” “goal,” “intend,” “likely,” “may,” “might,” “plan,” “potential,” “predict,” “project,” “see,” “seek,” “should,” “strategy,” “strive,” “target,” “will,” and “would” and similar expressions, and variations or negatives of these words. Examples of forward-looking statements include, among others, statements we make regarding: guidance outlook and predictions relating to expected operating results, such as revenue growth and earnings; strategic actions such as acquisitions, joint ventures, and dispositions, the anticipated benefits therefrom, and our success in integrating acquired businesses; anticipated levels of capital expenditures in future periods; our ability to successfully realize cost savings initiatives and transition services expenses; our belief that we have sufficiently liquidity to fund our ongoing business operations; expectations of the effect on our financial condition





of claims, litigation, environmental costs, contingent liabilities, and governmental and regulatory investigations and proceedings; and our strategy for customer retention, growth, product development, market position, financial results, and reserves. Forward-looking statements are neither historical facts nor assurances of future performance. Instead, they are based only on management’s current beliefs, expectations, and assumptions regarding the future of our business, future plans and strategies, projections, anticipated events and trends, the economy, and other future conditions. Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, they are difficult to predict and many of which are outside of our control. Important factors that could cause our actual results and financial condition to differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements are more fully discussed under the caption “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K, along with our other filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). However, those factors should not be considered to be a complete statement of all potential risks and uncertainties. Additional risks and uncertainties not known to us or that we currently deem immaterial may also impair our business operations. Forward-looking statements are based only on information currently available to our management and speaks only as of the date of this communication. We do not assume any obligation to publicly provide revisions or updates to any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, should circumstances change, except as otherwise required by securities and other applicable laws. Please consult our public filings with the SEC or on our website at www.clarivate.com.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted EPS
Adjusted Net Income is calculated using net income (loss), adjusted to exclude acquisition or disposal-related transaction costs (such costs include net income from continuing operations before provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization and interest income and expense from the divested business), amortization related to acquired intangible assets, stock-based compensation, unrealized foreign currency gains/(losses), Transition Services Agreement costs, separation and integration costs, transformational and restructuring expenses, acquisition-related adjustments to deferred revenues, non-cash income (loss) on equity and cost method investments, non-operating income or expense, the impact of certain non-cash and other items that are included in net income for the period that the Company does not consider indicative of its ongoing operating performance, certain unusual items impacting results in a particular period, and the income tax impact of any adjustments. We calculate Adjusted Diluted EPS by using Adjusted Net Income divided by diluted weighted average shares for the period.

Required Reported Data
Standalone Adjusted EBITDA
We are required to report Standalone Adjusted EBITDA pursuant to the reporting covenants contained in the Credit Agreement and the Indenture. Standalone Adjusted EBITDA is substantially similar to Consolidated EBITDA and EBITDA as such terms are defined under the Credit Agreement and the Indenture, respectively. In addition, the Credit Agreement and the Indenture contain certain restrictive covenants that govern debt incurrence and the making of restricted payments, among other matters. These restrictive covenants utilize Standalone Adjusted EBITDA as a primary component of the compliance metric governing our ability to undertake certain actions otherwise proscribed by such covenants. Standalone Adjusted EBITDA reflects further adjustments to Adjusted EBITDA for cost savings already implemented and excess standalone costs.
Because Standalone Adjusted EBITDA is required pursuant to the terms of the reporting covenants under the Credit Agreement and the Indenture and because this metric is relevant to lenders and noteholders, management considers Standalone Adjusted EBITDA to be relevant to the operation of its business. It is also utilized by management and the compensation committee of the Board as an input for determining incentive payments to employees.
Excess standalone costs are the difference between our actual standalone company infrastructure costs, and our estimated steady state standalone infrastructure costs. We make an adjustment for the difference because we have had to incur costs under the Transition Services Agreement after we had implemented the infrastructure to replace the services provided pursuant to the Transition Services Agreement, after we had implemented the infrastructure to replace the services provided pursuant to the Transition Services Agreement, thereby incurring dual running costs. Furthermore, there has been a ramp up period for establishing and optimizing the necessary standalone infrastructure. Since our separation from Thomson Reuters, we have had to transition quickly to replace services provided under the Transition Services Agreement, with optimization of the relevant standalone functions typically following





thereafter. Cost savings reflect the annualized “run rate” expected cost savings, net of actual cost savings realized, related to restructuring and other cost savings initiatives undertaken during the relevant period.
Standalone Adjusted EBITDA is calculated under the Credit Agreement and the Indenture by using our Net Income for the trailing twelve month period (defined in the Credit Agreement and the Indenture as our GAAP net income adjusted for certain items specified in the Credit Agreement and the Indenture) adjusted for items including: taxes, interest expense, depreciation and amortization, non-cash charges, expenses related to capital markets transactions, acquisitions and dispositions, restructuring and business optimization charges and expenses, consulting and advisory fees, run-rate cost savings to be realized as a result of actions taken or to be taken in connection with an acquisition, disposition, restructuring or cost savings or similar initiatives, “run rate” expected cost savings, operating expense reductions, restructuring charges and expenses and synergies related to the transition following the separation of the Company’s business from Thomson Reuters (the “2016 Transaction”) projected by us, costs related to any management or equity stock plan, other adjustments that were presented in the offering memorandum used in connection with the issuance of the Notes and earnout obligations incurred in connection with an acquisition or investment.

Q1 2020 Earnings Supplemental Materials May 4, 2020


 
Forward-Looking Statements This presentation contains “forward-looking statements” as defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements, which express management’s current views concerning the future of our business, future plans and strategies, projections, outlook, anticipated cost savings, anticipated synergies, other anticipated events and trends, the economy and other future conditions, appear throughout this presentation. Forward-looking statements are neither historical facts nor assurances of future performance. Instead, they are based only on management’s current beliefs, expectations and assumptions. Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, they are difficult to predict and many are largely or partially outside of our control. Important factors that could cause our actual results and financial condition to differ materially from those indicated in forward-looking statements include those discussed under the caption “Risk Factors” in the prospectus we filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on February 7, 2020, those discussed under the caption “Item 1A. Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 that we will file with the SEC, and similar factors discussed in our other filings with the SEC. However, those factors should not be considered to be a complete statement of all potential risks and uncertainties. Forward-looking statements are based only on information currently available to our management and speak only as of the date of this presentation. We do not assume any obligation to publicly provide revisions or updates to any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, should circumstances change, except as otherwise required by securities and other applicable laws. Please consult our public filings with the SEC and our website at www.clarivate.com. Non-GAAP Financial Measures This presentation contains financial measures which have not been calculated in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), including Adjusted Revenues, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted EPS, Free Cash Flow, Adjusted Free Cash Flow and Standalone Adjusted EBITDA, because they are a basis upon which our management assesses our performance and we believe they reflect the underlying trends and indicators of our business. Although we believe these measures may be useful for investors for the same reasons, these financial measures should not be considered as an alternative to GAAP financial measures as a measure of the Company’s financial condition, profitability and performance or liquidity. In addition, these financial measures may not be comparable to similar measures used by other companies. At the Appendix to this presentation, we provide further descriptions of these non-GAAP measures and reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to the corresponding most closely related GAAP measures. Required Reported Data We are required to report Standalone Adjusted EBITDA, which is identical to Consolidated EBITDA and EBITDA as such terms are defined under our credit agreement, and the indenture governing our senior secured notes due 2026, respectively, pursuant to the reporting covenants contained in such agreements. In addition, management of the Company uses Standalone Adjusted EBITDA to assess compliance with various incurrence-based covenants in these agreements. 2

Presentation of Certain Non-GAAP Financial Measures This presentation contains financial measures which have not been calculated in accordance with GAAP, including Adjusted Revenues and Adjusted EBITDA, because they are a basis upon which our management assesses our performance and we believe they reflect the underlining trends and indicators of our business. Adjusted Revenues Adjusted Revenues excludes the impact of the deferred revenues purchase accounting adjustment (primarily recorded in connection with recent acquisitions). Our presentation of Adjusted Revenues is presented for informational purposes only and is not necessarily indicative of our future results. You should compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our GAAP results and only using Adjusted Revenues for supplementary analysis. Adjusted EBITDA Adjusted EBITDA is calculated using net (loss) income before provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization and interest income and expense adjusted to exclude acquisition or disposal-related transaction costs (such costs include net income from continuing operations before provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization and interest income),stock-based compensation, unrealized foreign currency gains/(losses), transition services agreement costs entered into with Thomson Reuters in 2016 ("Transition Services Agreement"), separation and integration costs, transformational and restructuring expenses, acquisition-related adjustments to deferred revenues, non-cash income/(loss) on equity and cost method investments, non-operating income or expense, the impact of certain non-cash and other items that are included in net income for the period that the Company does not consider indicative of its ongoing operating performance, and certain unusual items impacting results in a particular period. In future periods, the Company will need to make additional capital expenditures in order to replicate capital expenditures associated with previously shared services on a stand-alone basis. You are encouraged to evaluate these adjustments and the reasons the Company considers them appropriate for supplemental analysis. These measures are not measurements of the Company’s financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as alternatives to net income, net cash flows provided by operating activities, total net cash flows or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP or as alternatives to net cash flows from operating activities or total net cash flows as measures of the Company’s liquidity. Reduction of ongoing standalone and Transition Services Agreement costs have been, and are expected to continue to be, a component of the Company’s strategy as it finalizes its transition to a standalone company following the 2016 Transaction. Certain of the adjustments included to arrive at Adjusted EBITDA are related to the Company’s transition to an independent company. In evaluating Adjusted EBITDA you should be aware that in the future the Company may incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of the included adjustments. The Company’s presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that the Company’s future results will be unaffected by any of the adjusted items, or that the Company’s projections and estimates will be realized in their entirety or at all. 12


 
Presentation of Certain Non-GAAP Financial Measures The use of Adjusted EBITDA instead of GAAP measures has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider Adjusted EBITDA in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s results of operations and operating cash flows as reported under GAAP. For example, Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect: – the Company’s cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures – changes in, or cash requirements for, the Company’s working capital needs – interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on the Company’s debt – any cash income taxes that the Company may be required to pay – any cash requirements for replacements of assets that are depreciated or amortized over their estimated useful lives and may have to be replaced in the future – all non-cash income or expense items that are reflected in the Company’s statements of cash flows The Company’s definition of and method of calculating Adjusted EBITDA may vary from the definitions and methods used by other companies when calculating adjusted EBITDA, which may limit their usefulness as comparative measures. The Company prepared the information included in this presentation based upon available information and assumptions and estimates that it believes are reasonable. The Company cannot assure you that its estimates and assumptions will prove to be accurate. Because the Company incurred transaction, transition, integration, transformation, restructuring, and Transition Services Agreement costs in connection with the 2016 Transaction and the transition, borrowed money in order to finance its operations, and used capital and intangible assets in its business, and because the payment of income taxes is necessary if the Company generates taxable income after the utilization of its net operating loss carryforwards, any measure that excludes these items has material limitations. As a result of these limitations, these measures should not be considered as a measure of discretionary cash available to the Company to invest in the growth of its business or as a measure of its liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA Margin Adjusted EBITDA Margin is defined as Adjusted EBITDA divided by Adjusted Revenues. 13


 
Presentation of Certain Non-GAAP Financial Measures Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted EPS We have begun to use Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share ("Adjusted Diluted EPS") in our analysis of the financial performance of the Company. We believe Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted EPS are meaningful measures of the performance of the Company because they adjust for items that do not directly affect our ongoing operating performance in the period. Adjusted Net Income is calculated using net income (loss), adjusted to exclude acquisition or disposal-related transaction costs (such costs include net income from continuing operations before provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization and interest income and expense from the divested business), amortization related to acquired intangible assets, stock-based compensation, unrealized foreign currency gains/(losses), Transition Services Agreement costs, separation and integration costs, transformational and restructuring expenses, acquisition-related adjustments to deferred revenues, non-cash income (loss) on equity and cost method investments, non-operating income or expense, the impact of certain non-cash and other items that are included in net income for the period that the Company does not consider indicative of its ongoing operating performance, certain unusual items impacting results in a particular period, and the income tax impact of any adjustments. We calculate Adjusted Diluted EPS by using Adjusted Net Income divided by diluted weighted average shares for the period. Standalone Adjusted EBITDA We are required to report Standalone Adjusted EBITDA pursuant to the reporting covenants contained in the Credit Agreement and the Indenture. Standalone Adjusted EBITDA is substantially similar to Consolidated EBITDA and EBITDA as such terms are defined under the Credit Agreement and the Indenture, respectively. In addition, the Credit Agreement and the Indenture contain certain restrictive covenants that govern debt incurrence and the making of restricted payments, among other matters. These restrictive covenants utilize Standalone Adjusted EBITDA as a primary component of the compliance metric governing our ability to undertake certain actions otherwise proscribed by such covenants. Standalone Adjusted EBITDA reflects further adjustments to Adjusted EBITDA for cost savings already implemented and excess standalone costs. Because Standalone Adjusted EBITDA is required pursuant to the terms of the reporting covenants under the Credit Agreement and the Indenture and because this metric is relevant to lenders and noteholders, management considers Standalone Adjusted EBITDA to be relevant to the operation of its business. It is also utilized by management and the compensation committee of the Board as an input for determining incentive payments to employees. Excess standalone costs are the difference between our actual standalone company infrastructure costs, and our estimated steady state standalone infrastructure costs. We make an adjustment for the difference because we have had to incur costs under the Transition Services Agreement after we had implemented the infrastructure to replace the services provided pursuant to the Transition Services Agreement, after we had implemented the infrastructure to replace the services provided pursuant to the Transition Services Agreement, thereby incurring dual running costs. Furthermore, there has been a ramp up period for establishing and optimizing the necessary standalone infrastructure. Since our separation from Thomson Reuters, we have had to transition quickly to replace services provided under the Transition Services Agreement, with optimization of the relevant standalone functions typically following thereafter. Cost savings reflect the annualized “run rate” expected cost savings, net of actual cost savings realized, related to restructuring and other cost savings initiatives undertaken during the relevant period. Standalone Adjusted EBITDA is calculated under the Credit Agreement and the Indenture by using our Net Income for the trailing twelve month period (defined in the Credit Agreement and the Indenture as our GAAP net income adjusted for certain items specified in the Credit Agreement and the Indenture) adjusted for items including: taxes, interest expense, depreciation and amortization, non-cash charges, expenses related to capital markets transactions, acquisitions and dispositions, restructuring and business optimization charges and expenses, consulting and advisory fees, run-rate cost savings to be realized as a result of actions taken or to be taken in connection with an acquisition, disposition, restructuring or cost savings or similar initiatives, “run rate” expected cost savings, operating expense reductions, restructuring charges and expenses and synergies related to the transition following the separation of the Company’s business from Thomson Reuters (the “2016 Transaction”) projected by us, costs related to any management or equity stock plan, other adjustments that were presented in the offering memorandum used in connection with the issuance of the Notes and earnout obligations incurred in connection with an acquisition or investment. 14


 
Presentation of Certain Non-GAAP Financial Measures Free Cash Flow and Adjusted Free Cash Flow We use free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow in our operational and financial decision-making and believe free cash flow and adjusted free cash is useful to investors because similar measures are frequently used by securities analysts, investors, ratings agencies and other interested parties to evaluate our competitors and to measure the ability of companies to service their debt. Free cash flow is calculated using net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures. Adjusted free cash flow is calculated as free cash flow, less cash paid for transition services agreement, transition, transformation and integration expenses, transaction related costs and debt issuance costs offset by cash received for hedge accounting transactions. The following table reconciles our non-GAAP free cash flow measure to net cash provided by operating activities: 15
