Perion Reports Record First Quarter Revenue and EBITDA

Perion Network Ltd. (NASDAQ: PERI) today announced record financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

Q1 2014 non-GAAP Financial Highlights:

  • Revenues increased to $117.1 million;
  • EBITDA increased to $33.6 million, or 29% of revenues;
  • Net income increased to $27.6 million, or 24% of revenues;
  • Earnings per diluted share were $0.40;
  • Cash flow from operations reached $13.9 million; and
  • Perion completed the quarter with $51.2 million in cash and cash equivalents.

Josef Mandelbaum, Perion’s CEO, commented: “We are very pleased with our first quarter performance as a combined company. The integration proceeded more smoothly and more rapidly than we anticipated, and the combined operations are delivering record results with strong top- and bottom-line growth. The post-merger integration work we completed, combined with our new found scale, sophisticated analytical capabilities, and combined talent, helped produce a strong start to 2014. While there still remain some headwinds in the overall industry, we are increasingly confident in our ability to adapt, gain market share and diversify and are therefore very excited about the future of the new Perion.”

“As an industry leader in the app developer ecosystem on the desktop, we are now positioning ourselves to be the same on the mobile platform,” added Mr. Mandelbaum. “Our expertise in helping app developers grow, monetize and optimize their business makes us the ideal partner for the mobile platform. Our technology, data set and people give me great confidence that we will be one of the leading companies that provides solutions for each platform and more importantly cross platform. Over the course of the remainder of the year you should expect to see some exciting new initiatives from us in the mobile and data driven programmatic advertising space which will further diversify and strengthen our business.”

Non-GAAP Financial Comparison for the First Quarter of 2014:

In accordance with US generally accepted accounting principles the acquisition of ClientConnect by Perion, which closed on January 2, 2014, is accounted for as a reverse acquisition. Therefore going forward, Perion will be comparing its results to those of ClientConnect in 2013. In the interest of transparency, the Company is also providing this quarter, comparative results on a combined basis. The combined results are calculated as the sum of Perion and ClientConnect results for the entire first quarter of last year.

Revenue: In the first quarter of 2014 revenues were a record $117.1 million, increasing 47%, compared to ClientConnect revenues of $79.7 million in the first quarter of 2013 and increasing 9% compared to combined revenues of $ 107.3 million in the first quarter of 2013. Non-GAAP revenues in the first quarter of 2014 include $2.3 million of deferred product revenues, which in accordance with U.S. GAAP were recorded at fair value on the acquisition date.

Customer Acquisition Costs (“CAC”): In the first quarter of 2014, Perion increased its investment in CAC to $59.6 million. In the first quarter of 2014 CAC represented 51% of revenues, compared to 50% in the first quarter of 2013 by ClientConnect and 48% revenues on a combined basis in the first quarter of 2013.

Operating Expenses: Excluding CAC, operating expenses in the first quarter of 2014 were $24.5 million, or 21% of revenues, compared to $17.9 million, or 22% of revenues, at ClientConnect in the first quarter of 2013. Non GAAP operating expenses in the first quarter of 2014 excluded $4.5 million amortization of acquired intangible assets, $4.4 million in non-cash equity compensation expenses and $2.9 million in acquisition related expenses, all of which were included in the GAAP numbers. In the first quarter of 2013, non GAAP operating expenses included $7.7 million activity which in the GAAP report were associated with discontinued operations and excluded from operating expenses.

EBITDA: In the first quarter of 2014, EBITDA was $33.6 million, or 29% of revenues, a 49% increase compared to the $22.5 million, or 28% of revenues at ClientConnect in the same quarter last year, despite the $19.5 million increase in CAC. On a combined basis EBITDA increased 10% from the first quarter of 2013.

Net Income: In the first quarter of 2014, net income was $27.6 million, or 24% of revenues, increasing 41%, from $19.5 million at ClientConnect in the first quarter of 2013. On a combined basis, net income increased 9% from $25.3 million in the first quarter of 2013.

Cash and Cash Flow from Operations: As of March 31, 2014 cash and cash equivalents were $51.2 million. This was made up of primarily $13.9 million, cash flow from operations, a $23.4 million cash balance at Perion prior the acquisition and a $14.8 million short term loan from Conduit to support working capital post acquisition.

2014 Financial Outlook:

Management today reaffirmed its financial outlook for 2014, on a non-GAAP basis, as announced on March 3, 2014:

  • Revenue is expected to be in the range of $460 million to $470 million.

Non-GAAP measures

Non-GAAP financial measures consist of GAAP financial measures adjusted to exclude: amortization of acquired intangible assets, share-based compensation expenses, acquisition related expenses, certain business combination accounting entries and tax adjustments re non-GAAP adjustments: non-recurring financial income; deferred financial expenses; and discontinued operations related expenses. The purpose of such adjustments is to give an indication of our performance exclusive of non-cash charges and other items that are considered by management to be outside of our core operating results. Our non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures, and should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our management regularly uses our supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate our business and make operating decisions. These non-GAAP measures are among the primary factors management uses in planning for and forecasting future periods. Business combination accounting rules requires us to recognize a legal performance obligation related to a revenue arrangement of an acquired entity. The amount assigned to that liability should be based on its fair value at the date of acquisition. The non-GAAP adjustment is intended to reflect the full amount of such revenue. We believe this adjustment is useful to investors as a measure of the ongoing performance of our business. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide consistent and comparable measures to help investors understand our current and future operating cash flow performance. These non-GAAP financial measures may differ materially from the non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. Reconciliation between results on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis is provided in a table immediately following the Consolidated Statements of Operations. The intangible assets created in the reverse acquisition of Perion are preliminary and subject to further review and completion of valuation analyses.
