Unless the content otherwise requires, references in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q to “SendGrid,” “company,” “our,” “us,” and “we” refer to SendGrid, Inc. and where appropriate its consolidated subsidiaries.

“SendGrid” and other trademarks or service marks of SendGrid appearing in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q are our property. This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains additional trade names, trademarks, and service marks of other companies, which are the property of their respective owners. We do not intend our use or display of other companies’ trade names, trademarks, or service marks to imply a relationship with, or endorsement or sponsorship of us by, these other companies.

NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Act, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Exchange Act, that involve substantial risks and uncertainties. All statements other than statements of historical facts contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, including statements regarding our potential merger with Twilio Inc.,  a Delaware corporation, or Twilio, future financial condition, results of operations, business strategy and plans and objectives of management for future operations, as well as statements regarding industry trends, are forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as “believe,” “will,” “may,” “estimate,” “continue,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “should,” “plan,” “expect,” “predict,” “could,” “potentially” or the negative of these terms or other similar expressions. We have based these forward-looking statements largely on our current expectations and projections about future events and trends that we believe may affect our financial condition, results of operations, business strategy and financial needs. These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties and assumptions described under the section titled “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, regarding, among other things:

the occurrence of any event, change, or other circumstances that could delay or prevent closing of the proposed merger or give rise to the termination of that certain Agreement and Plan of Merger and Reorganization dated October 15, 2018 by and among SendGrid, Twilio, and Topaz Merger Subsidiary, Inc., a Delaware corporation, or the Merger Agreement;

the risk that SendGrid and Twilio will be unable to complete the proposed merger due to the failure to obtain requisite stockholder approvals by SendGrid or Twilio or the failure to satisfy other conditions to completion of the proposed merger, including that a governmental entity may prohibit, delay, or refuse to grant regulatory approval for the consummation of the proposed merger;

the risk that SendGrid could be required to pay a termination fee of up to $69.0 million to Twilio under certain circumstances pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement;

the risk that stockholder litigation in connection with the proposed merger may affect the timing or occurrence of the proposed merger or result in significant costs of defense, indemnification, and liability;

the significant transaction costs which have been and may continue to be incurred by SendGrid related to the proposed merger;

the risk that the expected benefits of the proposed merger or other commercial opportunities may otherwise not be fully realized or may take longer to realize than expected;

risks associated with any failure to closing the proposed merger, including the potential distraction of employee and management attention during the pendency of the proposed merger, uncertainty about the effect of the proposed merger on SendGrid’s relationships with employees, potential and existing customers and suppliers and other parties, and the impact that the failure of the proposed merger to close could have on the trading price of shares of SendGrid common stock and SendGrid’s operating results;

our ability to effectively sustain and manage our growth and future expenses, and our ability to achieve and maintain future profitability;

3


 

our ability to attract new customers and to maintain and expand our existing customer base;

our dependence on our self-service model;

our ability to scale and update our platform to respond to customers’ needs and rapid technological change;

our reliance on third parties, including for strategic relationships to sell our services and for network connectivity, hosting, and other services;

the effects of increased competition on our market and our ability to compete effectively;

our ability to expand our operations and increase adoption of our platform internationally;

our ability to maintain, protect and enhance our brand;

our customers’ and other platform users’ violation of our policies or misuse of our platform;

the sufficiency of our cash and cash equivalents to satisfy our liquidity needs;

our failure or the failure of our platform of services to comply with applicable industry standards, laws, and regulations;

our ability to maintain our corporate culture;

our ability to hire, retain and motivate qualified personnel;

our ability to identify targets for, execute on and realize the benefits of potential acquisitions;

our ability to estimate the size and potential growth of our target market; and

our ability to maintain proper and effective internal controls.

These risks are not exhaustive. Other sections of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q may include additional factors that could adversely impact our business and financial performance. New risk factors emerge from time to time and it is not possible for our management to predict all risk factors, nor can we assess the impact of all factors on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in, or implied by, any forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements do not assume the consummation of the proposed merger with Twilio unless specifically stated otherwise. 

You should not rely upon forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, levels of activity, performance, or achievements. Except as required by law, we undertake no obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statements for any reason.

You should read this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q with the understanding that our actual future results, levels of activity, performance, and achievements may be materially different from what we expect.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(1)    Organization and Description of Business

SendGrid, Inc. and our wholly owned subsidiaries, SendGrid UK Limited and JCKM, Inc. (“Bizzy”) (collectively, “we,” “us,” “our,” “SendGrid,” or “the Company”), operate a leading digital communication platform that enables businesses to engage with their customers via email reliably, effectively, and at scale. SendGrid’s cloud-based platform allows for frictionless adoption and immediate value creation for businesses, providing their developers and marketers with the tools to seamlessly and effectively reach their customers using email. We maintain business operations in the United States and United Kingdom, with sales to customers in the United States and internationally.

In November 2017, we completed our initial public offering (“IPO”). We sold 9.4 million shares of our common stock at the public offering price of $16.00 per share. We received net proceeds of $136.3 million after deducting underwriting discounts, commissions, and offering expenses. Our common stock began trading on the New York Stock Exchange on November 15, 2017. 

On October 15, 2018, we entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger and Reorganization (the “Merger Agreement”) with Twilio Inc. Refer to Note 14 for additional details.  

 (2)    Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Basis of Presentation and Consolidation

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements were prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission regarding interim financial reporting. Certain information and disclosures normally included in the financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. Therefore, these condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K.

These condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries. All intercompany transactions and account balances have been eliminated in consolidation. In our opinion, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Our results of operations for the interim periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the full year.

Emerging Growth Company Status

Currently, we are an emerging growth company (“EGC”) as defined by the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (“JOBS Act”). The JOBS Act provides that an EGC can take advantage of an extended transition period for complying with new or revised accounting standards. This allows an EGC to delay adoption of certain accounting standards until those standards would otherwise apply to private companies. We elected to take advantage of the extended transition period.

As of June 30, 2018, the market value of our common stock held by non-affiliates exceeded $700 million. Therefore, effective December 31, 2018, we will cease to be classified as an EGC. As a result, as of December 31, 2018, we will be required to adopt all applicable accounting standards that were effective for any period during 2018. 

Use of Estimates

The preparation of consolidated financial statements, in conformity with GAAP, requires estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements, the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period, and certain information disclosed in the notes to the consolidated financial statements. Actual results could materially differ from

9


 

Table of Contents

SENDGRID, INC.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

these estimates. Significant estimates and assumptions that affect our consolidated financial condition and results of operations include:

 

 

     revenue recognition

     deferred taxes and related valuation allowances

     allowance for doubtful accounts and sales returns

     sales and use tax

     income tax uncertainties

     stock-based compensation

     other contingencies

     determination of the fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed in business combinations

 

We review estimates and assumptions periodically, and the effects of revisions are reflected prospectively in the period they occur.

Sales Taxes

We account for sales tax collected from customers and remitted to governmental authorities on a net basis and, therefore, we do not include such tax in revenue or cost of revenue in our consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss.

Other

Aside from the treatment of restricted cash on the statements of cash flows (see discussion of ASU 2016-18 below) and our accounting policy election regarding forfeitures on stock awards (see discussion of ASU 2016-09 below), there have been no material changes to our significant accounting policies as described in our December 31, 2017 consolidated financial statements.

Recently Adopted Accounting Standards 

In January 2017, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2017-01, Business Combinations (Topic 805): Clarifying the Definition of a Business, which clarifies when transactions should be accounted for as acquisitions (or disposals) of assets or business. We adopted ASU 2017-01 effective January 1, 2018. The adoption did not have a significant impact on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

In November 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-18, Statements of Cash Flow (Topic 230): Restricted Cash, which requires that a statement of cash flows explain the change during the period in the total cash, cash equivalents, and amounts generally described as restricted cash or restricted cash equivalents. Therefore, amounts generally described as restricted cash and restricted cash equivalents are included with cash and cash equivalents when reconciling the beginning-of-period and end-of-period total amount shown on the statement of cash flows. We adopted ASU 2016-18 effective April 1, 2018. Our condensed consolidated balance sheet as of September 30, 2018 includes $1.1 million of restricted cash related to SendGrid.org (Note 3). The condensed consolidated statement of cash flows includes this restricted cash within the end-of-period total amount shown as “cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash.” When the SendGrid.org restricted cash is actually disbursed, we will classify it as a use of cash from operating activities. We restated the prior period to conform to current year presentation. For the nine months ended September 30, 2017, this resulted in a $0.1 million decrease in cash used in investing activities.

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-15, Statements of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments, which clarifies classification for certain cash receipts and cash payments on the consolidated statement of cash flows. The standard requires retrospective application for each period presented. We adopted ASU 2016-15 effective April 1, 2018. The adoption did not have a significant impact on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-09, Compensation—Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements for Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting, which simplifies certain aspects of accounting for share-based payment transactions, including the following:

·

accounting for income tax consequences;

·

minimum statutory tax withholdings requirements;

·

forfeitures;

·

excess tax benefits in the statement of cash flows; and

·

classification of employee taxes paid when an employer withholds shares for tax-withholding purposes in the statement of cash flows.

We adopted ASU 2016-09 effective January 1, 2018. We made an accounting policy election to account for forfeitures in stock-based compensation cost as they occur and recorded a cumulative-effect adjustment of $0.6 million to accumulated deficit. The adoption of the remaining provisions of ASU 2016-09 did not have a significant impact on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

New Accounting Pronouncements Not Yet Adopted

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-15, Intangibles—Goodwill and Other—Internal-Use Software (Subtopic 350-40): Customer's Accounting for Implementation Costs Incurred in a Cloud Computing Arrangement That Is a Service Contract.  The standard aligns the requirements for capitalizing implementation costs incurred in a cloud computing arrangement that is a service contract (such as a hosting arrangement) with the requirements for capitalizing implementation costs incurred to develop or obtain internal-use-software. Capitalized implementation costs will be amortized over the term of the hosting arrangement, beginning when the module or component of the hosting arrangement is ready for its intended use. ASU 2018-02 is effective for us beginning January 1, 2020. Early adoption is permitted, but we do not expect to do so. We have not yet determined the effect of the standard on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

In February 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-02, Income Statement — Reporting Comprehensive Income (Topic 220), Reclassification of Certain Tax Effects from Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income. The standard allows a reclassification from accumulated other comprehensive income to accumulated deficit for stranded tax effects resulting from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (“the 2017 Act”). ASU 2018-02 is effective for us beginning January 1, 2019. Early adoption is permitted, but we do not expect to do so. Companies that elect to reclassify the stranded effects associated with the change in U.S. federal corporate income tax rate must do so for all items within Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income (“AOCI”). This standard allows adoption under one of two transition methods: (1) retrospective to each period (or periods) in which the income tax effects of the 2017 Act related to items remaining in AOCI are recognized, or (2) at the beginning of the period of adoption. We expect to adopt at the beginning of the period of adoption and do not anticipate the adoption of this standard will have a significant impact on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842).  The standard requires lessees to recognize, on the balance sheet, a liability to make lease payments and a corresponding right-of-use asset representing a right to use the underlying asset for the lease term. ASU 2016-02 is effective for us beginning January 1, 2019. Early adoption is permitted, but we do not expect to do so.  The standard requires a modified retrospective approach.  However, the FASB recently approved ASU 2018-11, Leases (Topic 842), Targeted Improvements, which permits an optional effective date transition method.  We anticipate electing this effective date transition method, which contains the following provisions:

·

transition provisions of the new standard are applied at its adoption date;

·

recognize a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings in the period of adoption; and

·

continue to apply the legacy guidance in Topic 840, Leases, including its disclosure requirements, in the comparative periods presented in the year the new leases standard is adopted.

The standard permits three practical expedients, which must be elected as a package.  We expect to elect  these practical expedients, which allow us to not reassess the following factors for all leases that commenced before January 1, 2019:

·

whether expired or existing contracts contain leases under the new definition of a lease;

·

lease classification for expired or existing leases; and

·

whether previously capitalized initial direct costs would qualify for capitalization under Topic 842.

We are currently in the process of accumulating and evaluating all contractual lease arrangements in order to determine the impact on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures. While we expect the adoption of this standard to result in an increase to our reported assets and liabilities, we have not yet determined the full impact.

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), and modified the standard thereafter.  The standard requires an entity to recognize the amount of revenue to which it expects to be entitled for the transfer of promised goods or services to customers. This new accounting standard also impacts the recognition of incremental costs to obtain a sales contract, such as sales commissions.  Under the new standard, these incremental costs will be capitalized at inception and expensed over an estimate of the customer’s life.  The ASU will replace most existing revenue recognition guidance in U.S. GAAP when it becomes effective. Most public companies adopted ASU 2014-09 effective January 1, 2018. Due to the cessation of our EGC status, the new standard is effective for us beginning December 31, 2018. Early adoption is permitted, but we will not do so.

The standard permits the use of either a full or a  modified retrospective transition method. We will adopt the standard using the modified retrospective method, which contains the following provisions:

·

For contracts not completed as of December 31, 2018, we will recognize the cumulative effect of initially applying the new revenue standard as an adjustment to our accumulated deficit;

·

Results for the December 31, 2018 and future reporting periods will be presented under Topic 606; and

·

Comparative prior period amounts will not be adjusted and continue to be reported in accordance with historic accounting guidance under Topic 605.

We continue to evaluate the impact of the new standard on our consolidated financial statements. We are in the process of evaluating customer arrangements and commissions and identifying differences in accounting between new and existing standards.  We do not anticipate the new standard will have a material impact on the timing or amount of revenue recognition.  However, we expect some impact on our consolidated statements of operations as a result of the deferred expense on sales commissions.

(6)    Note Payable

In August 2018, we entered into an arrangement with a financing company whereby we obtained $5.1 million in software and $1.3 million in related professional services in exchange for a $6.4 million note payable.  On our condensed consolidated balance sheet, the software is included in “Intangible assets, net.” The related professional services are included in “Prepaid expenses and other current assets” and “Other assets” and will be amortized over six to 36 months.  The note payable bears interest at 6.6% per annum compounded monthly and matures in August 2021. Principal and interest payments are paid quarterly (Note 13).

 

(7)    Revolving Line of Credit

We have a loan and security agreement (“LSA”) with a bank that provides a revolving line of credit with $40.0 million maximum borrowing availability.  The LSA matures in August 2019. We had $40.0 million available to draw as of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017. We were in compliance with all financial covenants as of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017.  For all periods presented, no amounts were outstanding, and we had no borrowing activity.

Amounts available to draw under the LSA are calculated from a trailing three-month revenue base, which can differ from the maximum loan amount. Advances bear interest on the outstanding daily balance at the bank’s prime rate.

Principal is due at maturity. Borrowings are secured by substantially all of our assets. The LSA contains certain restrictions, affirmative and negative covenants, and limitations, including, among other things:

·

restriction on our ability to pledge our intellectual property;

·

requirement to maintain at least 40% of our aggregate cash and cash equivalents in depository, operating, and investment accounts with the bank;

·

requirement to maintain certain business performance levels;

·

limitations on disposal of assets;

·

limitations on certain fundamental business changes;

·

limitations on incurrences of debt;

·

limitations on incurrences of liens;

·

limitations on payments of dividends;

·

limitations on repurchases of stock; and

·

limitations on engaging in affiliate transactions.

Each case is subject to certain exceptions. The LSA also contains certain events of default including, among other things, that during the existence of an event of default, interest on the obligations could be increased.

 

 

(8)   Equity Financing

On April 10, 2018 we closed a follow-on public offering of 7,514,369 shares of SendGrid common stock priced at $24.00, before underwriting discounts and commissions. Of the total shares sold, existing stockholders and option holders sold 6,914,369 shares, and the Company sold 600,000 shares. We received net proceeds of $12.4 million after deducting $0.7 million of underwriting discounts and commissions and $1.3 million of offering expenses.

 

(9)    Stock Awards

In 2009, we created the 2009 Equity Incentive Plan (the”2009 Plan”), in 2012, we created the 2012 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2012 Plan”), and in 2017, we created the 2017 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2017 Plan”). The 2009 Plan terminated upon the effectiveness of the 2012 Plan, and the 2012 Plan terminated upon the effectiveness of the 2017 Plan. However, any outstanding stock awards will continue to be governed by their existing terms.
