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.

(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).

The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers. There’s too much data and not enough information. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Bob Gates, Global Marketing Director, GE’s Intelligent Platforms business, to discuss how realizing the power of IoT, software developers are now focused on understanding how industrial data can create intelligence for industrial operations. Imagine ...
Operational Hadoop and the Lambda Architecture for Streaming Data Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing and analyzing streaming data is the Lambda Architecture, representing a model of how to analyze rea...

PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add scalable realtime functionality with minimal effort and cost.”
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...
With several hundred implementations of IoT-enabled solutions in the past 12 months alone, this session will focus on experience over the art of the possible. Many can only imagine the most advanced telematics platform ever deployed, supporting millions of customers, producing tens of thousands events or GBs per trip, and hundreds of TBs per month. With the ability to support a billion sensor events per second, over 30PB of warm data for analytics, and hundreds of PBs for an data analytics archive, in his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Kaskade, Vice President and General Manager, Big Data & Ana...
In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data they generate about customer usage and product performance to deliver extremely compelling and reliabl...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
