Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

Some of the information contained in the sections entitled “Item 1. Business” and “Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” and elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contain forward-looking statements that reflect our current views with respect to, among other things, future events and financial performance. You can identify these forward-looking statements by the use of forward-looking words such as “outlook,” “believes,” “expects,” “potential,” “continues,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “could,” “seeks,” “approximately,” “predicts,” “intends,” “plans,” “estimates,” “anticipates,” “target,” “projects,” “contemplates” or the negative version of those words or other comparable words. Any forward-looking statements contained in this report are based upon our historical performance and on our current plans, estimates and expectations in light of information currently available to us. The inclusion of this forward-looking information should not be regarded as a representation by us that the future plans, estimates or expectations contemplated by us will be achieved. Such forward-looking statements are subject to various risks and uncertainties and assumptions relating to our operations, financial results, financial condition, business, prospects, growth strategy and liquidity. For more information regarding these risks and uncertainties as well as certain additional risks that we face, refer to Part II, “Item 1A. Risk Factors” as well as the factors more fully described in “Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Conditions and Results of Operations,” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended August 31, 2020, and those described from time to time in our future reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Accordingly, there are, or will be, important factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those indicated in these statements. We believe that these factors include, but are not limited to:

 

our history of losses;

 

changes in our product revenue mix as we continue to focus on sales of our Software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) solutions, which will cause fluctuations in our results of operations and cash flows between periods;

 

our reliance on orders and renewals from a relatively small number of customers for a substantial portion of our revenue, and the substantial negotiating leverage customers have in renewing and expanding their contracts for our solutions;

 

the success of our growth strategy focused on SaaS solutions and our ability to develop or sell our solutions into new markets or further penetrate existing markets;

 

our ability to manage our expanding operations;

 

intense competition in our market;

 

third-parties may assert we are infringing or violating their intellectual property rights;

 

U.S. and global market and economic conditions, particularly adverse in the insurance industry;

 

additional complexity, burdens and volatility in connection with our international sales and operations;

 

the length and variability of our sales and implementation cycles;

 

data breaches, unauthorized access to customer data or other disruptions of our solutions;

 

the significant influence that Apax VIII Fund, a global private equity fund (collectively, with its affiliates, “Apax”) and Accenture plc, a public limited company incorporated in Ireland (collectively, with its affiliates, “Accenture”), will have on the composition of our board of directors, our management, business plans and policies, and any conflicts of interest between Apax and Accenture, on the one hand, and our other stockholders, on the other hand;

 

our continued reliance on “controlled company” exemptions under Nasdaq listing standards during the applicable phase-in periods;

 

impact of pandemics, including the COVID-19 pandemic, on U.S. and global economies, our business, our employees, results of operations, financial condition, demand for our products, sales and implementation cycles, and the health of our customers’ and partners’ businesses; and

 

the other risks and uncertainties described under Part II, “Item 1A. Risk Factors.”

These factors should not be construed as exhaustive and should be read in conjunction with the other cautionary statements that are included in this report. The forward-looking statements made in this report relate only to events as of the date on which the statements are made. We do not undertake any obligation to publicly update or review any forward-looking statement except as required by law, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise.

If one or more of these or other risks or uncertainties materialize, or if our underlying assumptions prove to be incorrect, our actual results may vary materially from what we may have expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. We caution that you should not place undue reliance on any of our forward-looking statements. You should specifically consider the factors identified in this report that could cause actual results to differ before making an investment decision to purchase our common stock. Furthermore, new risks and uncertainties arise from time to time, and it is impossible for us to predict those events or how they may affect us.

Basis of Presentation

As used in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q unless the context otherwise requires, references to “we,” “us,” “our,” the “Company,” “Duck Creek,” and similar references refer to Duck Creek Technologies, Inc. together with its subsidiaries, and the following terms have the meanings or are calculated as set forth below:

 

We define “subscription revenue” as the revenue derived from the sale of our SaaS solutions through recurring fee arrangements for the period indicated.

 

We define “ACV” as the committed total contract value of new software sales in dollar terms divided by the corresponding minimum number of committed months, with the resultant minimum monthly commitment being multiplied by twelve.

 

We define “carriers” as property and casualty (“P&C”) insurance carriers.

 

We define “core systems” as the following key functions of carriers: policy administration, claims management and billing.

 

We define “customers” as buying entities that contract individually for our products and services. For example, multiple subsidiaries of a single carrier may each constitute a customer if each entity contracts with us separately. By contrast, a carrier that uses our products across multiple subsidiaries under a single enterprise license agreement would constitute a single customer.

 

We define “DWP” as the gross dollar value of total premiums paid to carriers by policyholders.

Certain monetary amounts, percentages, and other figures included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q have been subject to rounding adjustments. Percentage amounts included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q have not in all cases been calculated on the basis of such rounded figures, but on the basis of such amounts prior to rounding. For this reason, percentage amounts in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q may vary from those obtained by performing the same calculations using the figures in our consolidated financial statements included elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Certain other amounts that appear in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q may not sum due to rounding. When we state that we are the leading SaaS provider of core systems for the P&C insurance industry, we are basing our leadership on our subscription revenue for fiscal 2020.

Our fiscal year ends on August 31. Unless otherwise noted, any reference to a year preceded by the word “fiscal” refers to the fiscal year ended August 31 of that year. For example, references to “fiscal 2019” refer to the fiscal year ended August 31, 2019. Any reference to a year not preceded by “fiscal” refers to a calendar year. Accordingly, our first three fiscal quarters are the successor three-month periods following August 31 (i.e., November 30, February 28 and May 31).
