Review of Fourth Quarter Financial Results
Adjusted revenues increased 46% to $44.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 from $30.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. The increase was primarily due to a 41% increase in revenues from AUM or AUA to $34.7 million from $24.6 million in the prior year period, as well as higher licensing and professional services revenues related to the acquisitions of Tamarac Inc. and Prima Capital Holding, Inc., both of which closed during the second quarter of 2012.
Total operating expenses in the fourth quarter of 2012 increased 52% to $42.7 million from $28.1 million in the prior year period. Cost of revenues increased 54% to $16.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 from $10.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2011 due to the increase in revenue from AUM or AUA and additional cost from acquired businesses. Compensation and benefits increased 59% to $15.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 from $9.6 million in the prior year period due to higher personnel cost from completed acquisitions, as well as higher stock-based compensation expense. General and administration expenses increased 34% to $8.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 from $6.0 million in the prior year period, primarily due to transaction costs related to the completed acquisitions, and ongoing expense from the acquired companies.
Income from operations was $1.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $2.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. Net income was $0.8 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $1.8 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2011. Adjusted EBITDA(1) in the fourth quarter of 2012 was $7.2 million, compared to $6.5 million in the prior year period. Adjusted Net Income(1) was $3.3 million, compared to $3.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Adjusted Net Income Per Share(1) was $0.10 per diluted share, compared to $0.11 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2011.
Change in Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
In a Form 8-K filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”), the Company reported that its Audit Committee terminated McGladrey LLP (“McGladrey”) and appointed KPMG (“KPMG”) as its independent registered public accounting firm. The Audit Committee reached this decision after it was determined that certain non-audit tax services provided by McGladrey to Envestnet may be inconsistent with the Commission’s rules on auditor independence. As a result, KPMG will perform the Company’s 2012 audit, as well as a re-audit of the Company’s 2011 financial statements, to ensure independent audit opinions are provided on the Company’s financial statements.
Envestnet’s Audit Committee and management believe that the financial statements contained in this press release and Envestnet’s previous SEC filings fairly present, in all material respects, the financial condition and results of operations of Envestnet as of and for the periods presented and may continue to be relied upon. Nevertheless, in light of the requirements of federal securities laws and regulations and because the purpose of the auditor independence rules is to provide investors with confidence that audits of public companies are carried out objectively and impartially by the independent accounting firms, it has been determined that Envestnet’s investors will receive a meaningful benefit from the reassurance that will be provided by having Envestnet’s financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2011 re-audited by a new independent accountant. Consequently, Envestnet’s Audit Committee has engaged KPMG, as Envestnet’s new independent registered public accountants, to re-audit Envestnet’s financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2011 and to re-review Envestnet’s quarterly financial information that will be contained in Envestnet’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012 (the “2012 Form 10-K”). Envestnet is working with KPMG to complete the necessary audit work as quickly as reasonably practicable. It is unlikely, however, that the audit for the year ended December 31, 2012 and the re-audit for the year ended December 31, 2011 will be completed on or before March 18, 2013, the date by which the 2012 Form 10-K must be filed with the SEC.
The Company's financial results presented in this press release have not yet been reviewed or audited by KPMG. Consequently, the financial results contained in this press release are subject to any adjustments that may result from the completion of the audit process which may be material. Furthermore, there can be no assurance that KPMG will not reach conclusions regarding the application of accounting standards, management estimates or other factors affecting our financial statements that are different from the Company's management in connection with their audit process, or that these conclusions will not require adjustments to our prior financial results.
The Company will host a conference call to discuss fourth quarter 2012 financial results today at 5:00 p.m. ET. The live webcast can be accessed from the Company's investor relations website at http://ir.envestnet.com/. The conference call can also be accessed live over the phone by dialing (877) 681-3374, or (719) 325-4910 for international callers. A replay will be available beginning one hour after the call and can be accessed from the Company’s investor relations website, or by dialing (877) 870-5176, or (858) 384-5517 for international callers; the conference ID is 3797447. The dial-in replay will be available for one week and the webcast replay will be available for one month following the date of the conference call.

(1) Non-GAAP Financial Measures
“Adjusted revenues” exclude the effect of purchase accounting on the fair value of acquired deferred revenue. Under U.S. GAAP, we record at fair value the acquired deferred revenue for contracts in effect at the time the entities were acquired. Consequently, revenue related to acquired entities for periods subsequent to the acquisition does not reflect the full amount of revenue that would have been recorded by these entities had they remained stand-alone entities.
“Adjusted EBITDA” represents net income before deferred revenue fair value adjustment, interest income, interest expense, income tax provision, depreciation and amortization, non-cash stock-based compensation expense, gain on investments, other income, restructuring charges and transaction costs, severance, customer inducement costs, and litigation related expense.
“Adjusted net income” represents net income before deferred revenue fair value adjustment, non-cash stock-based compensation expense, restructuring expense and transaction costs, severance, amortization of acquired intangibles, customer inducement costs, imputed interest expense and litigation related expense. Reconciling items are tax effected using the income tax rates in effect on the applicable date.
“Adjusted net income per share” represents adjusted net income divided by the diluted number of weighted-average shares outstanding.
See reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures at the end of this press release. These measures should not be viewed as a substitute for revenues or net income determined in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tony Shan, Chief Architect at CTS, will explore the synergy of Big Data and IoT. First he will take a closer look at the Internet of Things and Big Data individually, in terms of what, which, why, where, when, who, how and how much. Then he will explore the relationship between IoT and Big Data. Specifically, he will drill down to how the 4Vs aspects intersect with IoT: Volume, Variety, Velocity and Value. In turn, Tony will analyze how the key components of IoT influence Big Data: Device, Connectivity, Context, and Intelligence. He will dive deep to the matrix...

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Building actually breathes - immediately flagging overheating in a closet or over cooling in unoccupied ho...

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”

Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud without worrying about any lock-in fears.

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...
