comScore Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2012 Results

Fourth quarter GAAP revenue grows 9% year-over-year and 2012 GAAP revenue grows 10%

RESTON, Va., Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- comScore, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCOR), a leader in measuring the digital world, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2012.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20080115/COMSCORELOGO)

Fourth Quarter 2012
In the fourth quarter of 2012, comScore achieved record quarterly revenue of $68.4 million, an increase of 9% over the fourth quarter of 2011, driven by robust growth in the Company's Media Metrix suite of audience measurement products, in addition to accelerated momentum across its product offerings in mobile, advertising campaign measurement and digital business analytics. This revenue growth was partially offset by declines in the Company's non-health copy testing and configuration manager products, which comScore is evaluating for divestiture or elimination. Excluding revenue from these products, fourth quarter revenue, measured on a non-GAAP pro forma basis, would have increased 12% over the comparable period in 2011.

GAAP loss before income taxes was ($1.9) million in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to ($4.4) million in the fourth quarter of 2011. GAAP net loss was ($1.6) million, or ($0.05) per basic and diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to ($3.3) million, or ($0.10) per basic and diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2011. Non-GAAP net income in the fourth quarter of 2012 was $7.9 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, compared to $11.8 million, or $0.35 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2011. Adjusted EBITDA was $12.2 million or 18% of revenue in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $15.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Full Year 2012
For the full year 2012, comScore reported revenue of $255.2 million, an increase of 10% from 2011. Excluding the non-health copy testing and configuration manager products, revenue in 2012, measured on a non-GAAP pro forma basis, would have increased 13% over 2011 revenue. GAAP loss before income taxes was ($9.4) million in 2012 compared to ($18.8) million in 2011. GAAP net loss was ($11.8) million, or ($0.35) per basic and diluted share, in 2012 compared to ($15.8) million, or ($0.49) per basic and diluted share, for the full year 2011. Non-GAAP net income in 2012 was $28.1 million, or $0.79 per diluted share, compared to $31.8 million, or $0.97 per diluted share, for the full year 2011. Adjusted EBITDA in 2012 was $44.4 million, compared to $47.1 million in 2011.

Dr. Magid Abraham, comScore's president and chief executive officer said, "We delivered a strong fourth quarter with revenue and adjusted EBITDA that underscored the health of our core businesses and momentum of our newer product offerings. Our multi-platform capabilities are invigorating Media Metrix sales activity and our validated Campaign Essentials (vCE) advertising analytics suite continues to see strong sales activity. We are particularly excited that we signed substantial deals for our website analytics offering, Digital Analytix, and for our mobile operator analytics product during the quarter. We also continued to solidify our market leadership with the addition of 45 net new customers in the fourth quarter, ending the year with a total of 2,159 customers.

"In 2013, we will continue our transformation into a real-time digital business analytics company, with a sharpened focus on our four strategic growth areas of audience, advertising, digital business and mobile operator analytics products. Our strong bookings trends, combined with our continued excellent renewal rates of over 90% on a constant dollar basis, give us confidence in our revenue outlook for 2013. We also expect to deliver increasing margin levels through continued operating efficiencies this year, reflecting our long-term commitment to profitable growth."

Financial Outlook
comScore's expectations for the first quarter of 2013, which assume disposition of the company's non-health copy-testing business and elimination of its configuration management activity during the first quarter, are outlined in the table below:

GAAP Revenue

$65.8 million to $67.2 million


GAAP (loss) income before income taxes

($4.3) million to ($3.1) million


Adjusted EBITDA*

$10.0 million to $11.2 million


Estimated fully-diluted shares

37.3 million







comScore's expectations for full year 2013 are outlined in the table below:

GAAP Revenue

$273.4 million to $283.2 million


GAAP income (loss) before income taxes

($8.1) million to $1.0 million


Adjusted EBITDA*

$46.0 million to $54.0 million

Estimated fully-diluted shares

37.8 million


*Reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP measures are set forth in the attachment to this press release.

Due to the high variability and difficulty in predicting certain items that affect GAAP net income, such as tax rates and stock price, comScore is unable to provide a complete reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss) on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable efforts. However, a reconciliation of forward-looking adjusted EBITDA to GAAP income (loss) before income taxes is set forth in the attachment to this press release.

Given the recent discussion regarding our non-health copy testing and configuration manager products, we are also providing non-GAAP pro forma revenue and pro forma adjusted EBITDA guidance reconciliations that exclude this business in the attachments to this press release.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
comScore reports all financial information required in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). comScore believes, however, that evaluating its ongoing operating results will be enhanced if it also discloses certain non-GAAP information because it is useful to understand comScore's performance, as it excludes non-cash and other charges that many investors believe may obscure comScore's on-going operating results.

For example, comScore uses non-GAAP net income, which excludes stock-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangible assets, impairment of intangible assets, impairment of marketable securities, costs from acquisitions, restructurings and other non-recurring items, the non-cash deferred tax provision, litigation and related settlement costs, and the purchase accounting impact on acquired deferred revenue. comScore reports non-GAAP EPS (diluted), which uses non-GAAP net income in lieu of GAAP net income in calculating earnings per share. Non-GAAP pro forma revenue excludes the estimated effects of revenue generated from non-health copy testing and configuration manager products. Adjusted pro forma EBITDA also excludes the estimated effects of operations related to non-health copy testing and configuration manager products.

In addition, comScore believes that adjusted EBITDA is a useful measure for investors to use to evaluate its operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA comprises non-GAAP net income further adjusted to exclude the cash tax provision, depreciation, interest income (expense) net, and costs not associated with ongoing operations, such as acquisition, litigation and related settlement costs. A reconciliation of comScore's GAAP results to these non-GAAP measures is included in the financial tables accompanying this release.

The company believes that adjusted EBITDA is an important indicator of the company's operational strength and the performance of its business because it provides a link between profitability and operating cash flow. Adjusted EBITDA is also widely used by investors and analysts as a supplemental measure to evaluate the overall operating performance of companies in comScore's industry. comScore's management also uses adjusted EBITDA extensively as a measure of operating performance because it does not include the impact of items not directly resulting from its core operations. Moreover, the company's management uses the measure for planning purposes, to allocate resources and to evaluate the effectiveness of the company's business strategies and management's performance.

The company believes that excluding certain costs from non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP EPS, and adjusted EBITDA provides a meaningful indication to investors of the expected on-going operating performance of the company. Specifically as it relates to acquisitions and restructurings, the exclusion of these costs reflects the expected benefits realized or to be realized upon the integration of acquired entities into comScore, and the realized benefits of the restructurings.

comScore's management also uses free cash flow as a non-GAAP measure of the company's operating cash flow less cash expenditures for capital spending as a key indicator of the company's operating cash flow performance.

Whenever comScore uses such historical non-GAAP financial measures, it provides a reconciliation of historical non-GAAP financial measures to the most closely applicable GAAP financial measure. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these historical non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure included in the financial tables accompanying this release. Although the company provides a reconciliation of historical non-GAAP financial measures, due to the high variability and difficulty in predicting certain items that affect net income, such as tax rates and stock price, comScore is unable to provide a complete reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to net income on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable efforts. However, a reconciliation of forward-looking adjusted EBITDA to GAAP income (loss) before income taxes is set forth in the attachment to this press release.

These non-GAAP financial measures do not reflect a comprehensive system of accounting, differ from GAAP measures with the same captions and may differ from non-GAAP financial measures with the same or similar captions that are used by other companies. The use of certain non-GAAP financial measures requires management to make estimates and assumptions regarding amounts of assets and liabilities and the amounts of revenue and expense during the reporting periods. Significant estimates and assumptions are inherent in the analysis and the measurement of certain elements of non-GAAP financial measures such as the impact of purchase accounting on acquired deferred revenue and the amortization of deferred contract costs associated with acquired deferred revenue. comScore bases its estimates on historical experience and assumptions that it believes are reasonable. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Cautionary Statement
This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, including, without limitation, comScore's expectations as to adoption of new products and services by customers; expectations about comScore's transformation to a real-time digital business analytics company; expectations regarding continued robust growth of the Media Metrix suite of products; expectations regarding continued growth of its customer base; expectations as to customer renewal rates; expectations regarding the customer reception, impact and financial benefits of certain products such as Digital Analytix and validated Campaign Essentials products; expectations regarding the possible divestiture or elimination of comScore's non-health copy testing and configuration manager products and the timing thereof, expectations and forecasts of future financial performance, including related growth rates and components thereof; and assumptions related to growth for the first quarter and full year of 2013. These statements involve risks and uncertainties that could cause our actual results to differ materially, including, but not limited to: comScore's ability to generate strong revenue and margin growth in future periods; comScore's ability to sell new or additional products and attract new customers, as well as longer sales cycles related to newer products such as validated Campaign Essentials, and Digital Analytix; comScore's ability to sell additional subscription-based products to customers; comScore's ability to sell additional products and services to existing customers; comScore's ability to divest or eliminate its non-health copy testing and configuration manager products; and the volatility of quarterly results and expectations.

For a detailed discussion of these and other risk factors, please refer to comScore's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended December 31, 2011 and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2012 and from time to time other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), which are available on the SEC's Web site (http://www.sec.gov).

Stockholders of comScore are cautioned not to place undue reliance on our forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date such statements are made. comScore does not undertake any obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements to reflect events, circumstances or new information after the date of this press release, or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

"People are a lot more knowledgeable about APIs now. There are two types of people who work with APIs - IT people who want to use APIs for something internal and the product managers who want to do something outside APIs for people to connect to them," explained Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at SOA Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
"At our booth we are showing how to provide trust in the Internet of Things. Trust is where everything starts to become secure and trustworthy.

Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices. To retrofit existing programs across all these devices using traditional programming methods is very costly and time consuming – often prohibitively so.

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
