Blackbaud, Inc. (Nasdaq: BLKB), the leading global provider of software and services to the nonprofit sector, today announced financial results for its fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2012.
Marc Chardon, Chief Executive Officer of Blackbaud, stated, “Blackbaud reported solid fourth quarter results that were at the high-end or above our guidance from a revenue and profitability perspective. Each of our business units performed well during the quarter, and we are pleased to see early signs of acceleration in the opportunity pipeline for the Luminate product line that we gained through our acquisition of Convio.”
Chardon added, “During 2012, the acquisition of Convio significantly increased our scale, recurring revenue and presence in the fastest growing segment of the nonprofit market. We also made solid progress on our combined company go-to-market strategies, from which we expect to benefit over the course of 2013 and beyond. We are confident that our unique, best-of-breed offerings in online fundraising and CRM for nonprofits of all sizes and across verticals position us well to gain share in our underpenetrated, multi-billion dollar market opportunity.”
Fourth Quarter 2012 GAAP Financial Results
Blackbaud reported total revenue of $120.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, an increase compared to $95.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. Income from operations and net income, determined in accordance with GAAP, were $9.9 million and $3.3 million, respectively, compared with $10.6 million and $6.4 million, respectively, for the fourth quarter of 2011. Diluted earnings per share were $0.07 for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared with $0.14 in the same period last year.
Fourth Quarter 2012 Non-GAAP Financial Results
Blackbaud reported total non-GAAP revenue of $120.8 million, which includes $0.8 million of the deferred revenue write down associated with the Convio acquisition. Non-GAAP income from operations, which excludes stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangibles arising from business combinations, acquisition-related expenses, integration and restructuring costs and an impairment of a cost method investment, was $22.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, an increase from $19.1 million in the same period last year. Non-GAAP net income was $12.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $11.8 million in the same period last year.

Tony Boor, Chief Financial Officer of Blackbaud, stated, “We successfully executed against our synergies targets following the combination of Blackbaud and Convio and achieved our goal of $9-$10 million of annualized cost savings by the end of 2012. In addition, as part of rationalizing our combined operations and cost structure, we recently took actions that are expected to generate an additional $10 million of cost savings in 2013.” Boor added, “We remain very focused on delivering significant improvement in our non-GAAP operating margin during 2013 and beyond, which we believe will drive increased shareholder value. In addition, the improvement in our pipeline related to Convio’s offerings is a further step toward ultimately realizing revenue synergies over the long-term.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Blackbaud has provided in this release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with GAAP. This information includes non-GAAP revenue, non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share and non-GAAP operating margin. Blackbaud uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing its financial results and believes they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating Blackbaud's ongoing operational performance. Blackbaud believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing its financial results with other companies in Blackbaud's industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. Non-GAAP financial results discussed above exclude: a write-down of Convio deferred revenue; stock-based compensation expense; costs associated with amortization of intangibles arising from business combinations; acquisition-related expense; integration and restructuring costs; a write-off of prepaid proprietary software licenses; a charge associated with impairment of cost method investment; and, a gain in connection with the sale of assets. We use these measures and believe them useful to investors because they provide additional insight in comparing results from period to period.
Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. As previously mentioned, a reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures has been provided in the financial statement tables included below in this press release.
