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.

With an estimated 50 billion devices connected to the Internet by 2020, several industries will begin to expand their capabilities for retaining end point data at the edge to better utilize the range of data types and sheer volume of M2M data generated by the Internet of Things. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and President of Infobright, will discuss the infrastructures businesses will need to implement to handle this explosion of data by providing specific use cases for filte...
As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Learn how IoT, cloud, social networks and last but not least, humans, can be integrated into a seamless integration of cooperative organisms both cybernetic and biological. This has been enabled by recent advances in IoT device capabilities, messaging frameworks, presence and collaboration services, where devices can share information and make independent and human assisted decisions based upon social status from other entities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Heydt, founder of Seamless...
The IoT's basic concept of collecting data from as many sources possible to drive better decision making, create process innovation and realize additional revenue has been in use at large enterprises with deep pockets for decades. So what has changed? In his session at @ThingsExpo, Prasanna Sivaramakrishnan, Solutions Architect at Red Hat, discussed the impact commodity hardware, ubiquitous connectivity, and innovations in open source software are having on the connected universe of people, thi...
WebRTC: together these advances have created a perfect storm of technologies that are disrupting and transforming classic communications models and ecosystems. In his session at WebRTC Summit, Cary Bran, VP of Innovation and New Ventures at Plantronics and PLT Labs, provided an overview of this technological shift, including associated business and consumer communications impacts, and opportunities it may enable, complement or entirely transform.
There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, showed how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants received the download information, scripts, and complete end-t...
For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, discussed how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the dat...
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 Buildi...
