New accounting standards

Xero adopted three new accounting standards from 1 April 2018

IFRS 15

Revenue from contracts with customers

  • Xero's commission costs will be capitalised and expensed over time
  • This standard also changes the classification and timing of when revenue is recognised

IFRS 16

Leases

  • The majority of Xero's leases will be recognised on the balance sheet, with the expense moving from operating expenses to depreciation and finance expense

IFRS 9

Financial instruments

  • Amends the classification and measurement of Xero's financial instruments and simplifies its hedge accounting model to align more closely to risk management strategies and objectives

Free cash flow1in the financial year to 31 March 2020 is expected to be a similar proportion of total operating revenue to that reported in the financial year to 31 March 2019

1Free cash flow is defined as cash flows from operating activities less cash flows used for investing activities excluding cash used for acquisitions of, and investments into, businesses and strategic assets

Glossary

Subscribers

Subscriber means each unique subscription to a Xero-offered product that is purchased by an accounting partner or an end user and which is, or is available to be, deployed. Subscribers that have multiple subscriptions to integrated products on the Xero platform are counted as a single subscriber

AMRR

Annualised monthly recurring revenue (AMRR) represents monthly recurring revenue at 31 March, multiplied by 12. It provides a 12 month forward view of revenue, assuming any promotions have ended and other factors such as subscriber numbers, transaction volumes, pricing and foreign exchange remain unchanged during the year

ARPU

Average revenue per user (ARPU) is calculated as AMRR at 31 March divided by subscribers at that time (and divided by 12 to get a monthly view)

Churn

Churn is the value of monthly recurring revenue (MRR) from subscribers who leave Xero in a month as a percentage of the total MRR at the start of that month. The percentage provided is the average of the monthly churn for the previous 12 months

Constant currency

Constant currency comparisons for revenue are based on exchange rates for the 12 months ended 31 March 2018. Comparisons for ARPU, AMRR and LTV are based on exchange rates at 31 March 2018

Lifetime value (LTV)

LTV is the gross margin expected from a subscriber over the lifetime of that subscriber. This is calculated by taking the average subscriber lifetime (1 divided by churn) multiplied by ARPU, multiplied by the gross margin percentage. Group LTV is calculated as the sum of the individual segment LTVs, multiplied by their respective segment subscribers, divided by total Group subscribers

CAC months

Customer Acquisition Cost (CAC) months are months of ARPU to recover the cost of acquiring each new subscriber. The calculation is sales and marketing costs for the year excluding the deferral and amortisation of commissions paid to sales people, less conference revenue (such as Xerocon), divided by gross new subscribers added during the same period, divided by ARPU

Free cash flow

Free cash flow is defined as cash flows from operating activities less cash flows used for investing activities excluding cash used for acquisitions of, and investments into, businesses and strategic assets
