J2 GLOBAL REPORTS Q2 2014 RESULTS

Achieves Record Quarterly Revenues; 12.0% Growth in Cloud Service Revenues vs. Q2 2013; 17.2% Growth in Digital Media Revenues vs. Q2 2013

Increases Dividend for Twelfth Consecutive Quarter to $0.2775 per Share

j2 Global, Inc. (NASDAQ-GS:JCOM) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014 and announced that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.2775 per share, j2’s twelfth consecutive quarterly dividend increase.

SECOND QUARTER 2014 RESULTS

Business Cloud Services revenues(1) increased 12.0% to a record $105.3 million compared to $94.0 million for Q2 2013. Digital Media revenues increased 17.2% to a record $38.2 million compared to $32.6 for Q2 2013. Intellectual Property (IP) Licensing revenues decreased to $1.2 million from $14.7 million for Q2 2013, due primarily to the Company securing a $27 million license agreement in Q3 2013 that increased revenues that quarter by $12.6 million from past damages (the “Q2 2013 License Agreement”).(2)

Consolidated revenues for the quarter increased 2.3% to a record $144.7 million compared to $141.4 million in Q2 2013. Adjusted Non-GAAP revenues for the quarter increased 14.4% to $145.7 million compared to $127.4 million in Q2 2013.(3)

Earnings per diluted share(4) for the quarter decreased (5.2)% to $0.73 compared to $0.77 for Q2 2013, due primarily to approximately $0.17 from the Q2 2013 License Agreement. Adjusted Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share(4)(5) for the quarter increased 10.5% to $0.84 compared to $0.76 for Q2 2013.

EBITDA(6) for the quarter increased 18.4% to $63.7 million compared to $53.8 million for Q2 2013.

Free cash flow(7) for the quarter increased 38% to $54.1 million compared to $39.2 million for Q2 2013.

j2 ended the quarter with $708.5 million in cash and investments after issuing convertible senior notes with net proceeds of $391.4 million and deploying $53.5 million for acquisitions during the quarter and j2’s regular quarterly dividend payment.

“This was a great quarter,” said Hemi Zucker, j2’s CEO. “We grew our Digital Media revenues(3) by 22.4% and our Cloud Services revenues(3) by 13.1%, each versus Q2 2013. We made significant progress on several key strategic priorities, including further reducing our churn rate and continuing to increase our non-fax business – which now comprises more than 52% of our revenues – while simultaneously growing our fax business. In addition, our cost containment in our Cloud Services and Digital Media businesses allowed us to flow through more than 50% of incremental revenues in those businesses to EBITDA. With more than $700 million in cash and investments on hand, we are in a strong position.”

BUSINESS OUTLOOK

j2 is reaffirming its previously announced fiscal 2014 revenues estimate of between $580 and $600 million.

In Q2 2014, j2 issued $402.5 million in convertible senior notes, which will adversely impact 2014 earnings per diluted share by approximately $0.10. Notwithstanding this impact, j2 is reaffirming its previously announced fiscal 2014 Adjusted Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share estimate of between $3.23 and $3.47.

Adjusted Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share for 2014 excludes share-based compensation of between $10 and $12 million, amortization of acquired intangibles and the impact of any currently unanticipated items, and adds back $1.5 million to reflect the impact of the fair value adjustment to deferred revenues purchased in the Livedrive acquisition, in each case net of tax.

It is anticipated that the Adjusted Non-GAAP tax rate for 2014 will be between 27% and 29%.

DIVIDEND

j2’s Board of Directors has approved a cash dividend of $0.2775 per common share, a 12.1% increase versus the dividend paid in Q3 2013. This is j2’s twelfth consecutive quarterly dividend increase since its first quarterly dividend in September 2011. The dividend will be paid on September 2, 2014 to all shareholders of record as of the close of business on August 18, 2014. Future dividends will be subject to Board approval.

(3) For Q2 2014, Adjusted Non-GAAP revenues adds back to Cloud Services revenues the approximate $1.5 million fair value adjustment to deferred revenues purchased in the Livedrive acquisition.

(5) For Q2 2014, Adjusted Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share excludes share-based compensation, certain acquisition-related integration costs, amortization of acquired intangibles and additional tax expense (benefit) from prior years, and adds back the impact of the fair value adjustment to deferred revenues purchased in the Livedrive acquisition, in each case net of tax, totaling $0.12. For Q2 2013, Adjusted Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share excludes share-based compensation, certain acquisition-related integration costs, amortization of acquired intangibles and earnings attributable to the Q2 2013 License Agreement, in each case net of tax, totaling $(0.01).

EBITDA amounts are not meant as a substitute for GAAP, but are solely for informational purposes.
 
(7) Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities, less purchases of property, plant and equipment, plus excess tax benefit from share-based compensation.

* The reconciliation of net income per share from GAAP to adjusted non-GAAP may not foot since each is calculated independently.
 

The Company discloses adjusted non-GAAP Earnings Per Share ("EPS") as supplemental non-GAAP financial performance measure, as it believes it is a useful metric by which to compare the performance of its business from period to period. The Company also understands that this adjusted non-GAAP measure is broadly used by analysts, rating agencies and investors in assessing the Company's performance. Accordingly, the Company believes that the presentation of this adjusted non-GAAP financial measure provides useful information to investors.

 
Adjusted non-GAAP EPS is not in accordance with, or an alternative to, net income per share and may be different from non-GAAP measures with similar or even identical names used by other companies. In addition, this adjusted non-GAAP measure is not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. This adjusted non-GAAP measure has limitations in that it does not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company's results of operations determined in accordance with GAAP.

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.

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...

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...
