ChannelAdvisor Announces Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

ChannelAdvisor Corporation (NYSE: ECOM), a leading provider of cloud-based e-commerce solutions that enable retailers and manufacturers to increase global sales, today announced its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2014.

"We are pleased to deliver second quarter revenue which was above expectations, with core revenue growth of 32 percent over the second quarter of the prior year," said Scot Wingo, Chief Executive Officer of ChannelAdvisor. “During the quarter we signed many large customers, including 16 of the largest U.S. internet retailers. The excellent sales momentum generated in the quarter is reflected in our increased full year revenue guidance."

Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

  • Total revenue of $20.8 million for the second quarter of 2014 increased 30.0 percent compared with total revenue of $16.0 million for the second quarter of 2013.
  • Core revenue increased by 31.8 percent to $20.5 million from $15.5 million in the second quarter of 2013. The company’s method for calculating this and other key operating metrics that it reports is included later in this press release.
  • GAAP net loss was $(9.6) million compared with a net loss of $(5.0) million in the second quarter of 2013. GAAP net loss per share was $(0.39), based on 24.6 million weighted average shares outstanding, compared with a net loss per share of $(0.56), based on 8.8 million weighted average shares outstanding in the year-ago period.
  • Non-GAAP net loss, which excludes the impact of non-cash stock-based compensation, was $(7.5) million compared with non-GAAP net loss of $(4.5) million for the second quarter of 2013. Non-GAAP net loss per share was $(0.30) for the second quarter of 2014, based on 24.6 million weighted average shares outstanding, compared with a non-GAAP net loss per share of $(0.25) for the second quarter of 2013, based on 17.5 million weighted average shares outstanding. Per share figures for the second quarter of 2013 assume that the company’s pre-IPO preferred stock was converted to common stock at the beginning of the quarter.
  • Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, was $(6.1) million for the second quarter of 2014 compared with $(2.0) million for the second quarter of 2013. Adjusted EBITDA excludes depreciation, amortization, income tax expense, interest and stock-based compensation expenses.
  • Cash at quarter end totaled $85.1 million, compared with $95.0 million at the end of the first quarter. The decrease was primarily due to investments in our long-term growth.

Recent Business Highlights

  • Added 108 net core customers in the second quarter. Total core customer count was 2,673 at the end of the second quarter, an increase of 25 percent from 2,135 core customers at the end of the second quarter of 2013.
  • Added new top-tier customers including Atman, Inc. dba,, Capital Ford, Inc., CPO Commerce, Cymax, Dazadi, Elaine Turner, and SmartWool, a division of VF Outdoor, Inc.
  • Average revenue per core customer, calculated on a trailing twelve-month basis, increased 5 percent to $31,160 for the second quarter, compared with $29,607 for the second quarter of 2013.
  • Fixed subscription fees were 76 percent of total revenue and variable subscription fees were 24 percent of total revenue for the second quarter of 2014. This compares to 67 percent and 33 percent, respectively, for the second quarter of 2013.
  • Subscription dollar retention rate, the primary metric that we use to measure customer retention, exceeded 100 percent for the quarter, consistent with recent performance.
  • Announced support for Google's Shopping campaigns, with Product Group Generator, enabling retailers to efficiently configure Google Product Listing Ad campaigns.
  • Integrated ChannelAdvisor Digital Marketing with Yahoo Gemini, offering advertisers the ability to create and manage ads on Yahoo’s unified marketplace for mobile search and native ad campaigns.
  • Presented at three industry conferences: SuiteWorld 2014, IRCE Focus: Brands & B2B and Internet Retailer Conference & Exhibition 2014.

Key Operating Metrics

Core revenue excludes revenue attributable to the products from two small legacy acquisitions, both of which occurred prior to 2008, which we do not consider to be a core part of our strategic focus going forward.

Number of core customers includes all customers who subscribe to at least one of our solutions other than the non-core, legacy products.

Average revenue per core customer is total core revenue divided by the average monthly number of core customers during the period.

Subscription dollar retention rate is calculated for a particular period by establishing the cohort of core customers that had active contracts as of the end of the prior period. We then calculate our subscription dollar retention rate by taking the amount of fixed subscription revenue we recognized for the cohort in the period for which we are reporting the rate and dividing it by the fixed subscription revenue we recognized for the same cohort in the prior period. For this purpose, we do not include any non-core revenue, any variable subscription fees paid by our customers or any implementation fees.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains the following non-GAAP financial measures: core revenue, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss per share and adjusted EBITDA.

ChannelAdvisor believes that these non-GAAP measures of financial results provide useful information to management and investors relating to ChannelAdvisor’s financial condition and results of operations. The company’s management uses these non-GAAP measures to compare the company’s performance to that of prior periods for trend analyses, and for budgeting and planning purposes. The company believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing the company’s financial measures with other software companies, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors, and that it allows for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision-making.

Management of the company does not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitation of these non-GAAP financial measures is that they exclude significant expenses that are required by GAAP to be recorded in the company’s financial statements. In order to compensate for these limitations, management presents non-GAAP financial measures together with GAAP results. Non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to results and guidance prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. Reconciliation tables of the most comparable GAAP financial measures to the non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release are included with the financial tables at the end of this release. ChannelAdvisor urges investors to review the reconciliation and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate the company’s business. In addition, other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate similarly named non-GAAP measures differently than we do, which limits their usefulness in comparing our financial results with theirs. With respect to our expectations under "Financial Outlook" above, reconciliation of non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA guidance to the closest corresponding GAAP measure is not available without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to the high variability, complexity and low visibility with respect to the charges excluded from this non-GAAP measure. We expect the variability of the above charges to have a significant, and potentially unpredictable, impact on our future GAAP financial results.

Internet of Things (IoT) will be a hybrid ecosystem of diverse devices and sensors collaborating with operational and enterprise systems to create the next big application. In their session at @ThingsExpo, Bramh Gupta, founder and CEO of, and Fred Yatzeck, principal architect leading product development at, discussed how choosing the right middleware and integration strategy from the get-go will enable IoT solution developers to adapt and grow with the industry, while at the same time reduce Time to Market (TTM) by using plug and play capabilities offered by a robust IoT ...
The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.
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...
The buzz continues for cloud, data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT) and their collective impact across all industries. But a new conversation is emerging - how do companies use industry disruption and technology enablers to lead in markets undergoing change, uncertainty and ambiguity? Organizations of all sizes need to evolve and transform, often under massive pressure, as industry lines blur and merge and traditional business models are assaulted and turned upside down. In this new data-driven world, marketplaces reign supreme while interoperability, APIs and applications deliver un...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
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, will show 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 will get the download information, scripts, and complete end-to-end walkthrough of the analysis from start to finish. Participants will also be given the pract...
Today’s connected world is moving from devices towards things, what this means is that by using increasingly low cost sensors embedded in devices we can create many new use cases. These span across use cases in cities, vehicles, home, offices, factories, retail environments, worksites, health, logistics, and health. These use cases rely on ubiquitous connectivity and generate massive amounts of data at scale. These technologies enable new business opportunities, ways to optimize and automate, along with new ways to engage with users.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT.
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. In fact by having standard APIs for IaaS would help PaaS expl...

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, will look at different existing uses of peer-to-peer data sharing and how it can become useful in a live session to...

"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
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.
Nowadays, a large number of sensors and devices are connected to the network.
