Trulia, Inc. (NYSE: TRLA), a leading online marketplace for home buyers, sellers, renters and real estate professionals, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014.

“Our business is firing on all cylinders. The focus on a more valuable, more transaction ready consumer paid dividends in Q2, as our marketing campaign accelerated audience growth during the busiest part of the real estate season,” said Pete Flint, Chief Executive Officer of Trulia. “I’m tremendously excited about joining forces with Zillow. By working together, we will be able to create even more value for home buyers, sellers, and renters, as well as enable our industry partners to grow their businesses even more efficiently.”

Selected Business Highlights

  • Mobile product innovation for consumers: Trulia drove mobile audience growth of more than 90% year-over-year in the second quarter, driven by innovations like nearby home alerts, a feature that alerts consumers to any new homes—either rentals or homes for sale—listed in the last 24 hours. Trulia also demonstrated its culture of innovation by launching a new app for Android Wear that was highlighted at Google I/O 2014, Google’s annual developer conference.
  • Mobile leadership for agents: Trulia extended its mobile leadership in tools for on-the-go agents by launching its first tablet apps for real estate agents, bringing Trulia for Agents to iOS and Android tablets. Agents find the larger displays on tablets particularly helpful for managing their leads and businesses on the go.
  • Deeper industry relationships: Trulia made significant progress in building deeper industry partnerships and adding to the quality of its data. In July, Trulia announced that it now receives listings data from more than 12,000 brokerages through its Trulia Data Connect program. Trulia Data Connect enables brokers to send listings directly to Trulia, empowering them to take full control over their listings and market them more strategically. Trulia Data Connect feeds are updated as frequently as every eight minutes to ensure the listings are marketed in a timely and accurate manner.

Agreement to Combine with Zillow

As announced on July 28, 2014, Zillow announced a definitive agreement to acquire Trulia for $3.5 billion in a stock-for-stock transaction. Under the terms of the agreement, Trulia stockholders will receive 0.444 shares of Class A common stock of a newly created holding company for each share of Trulia common stock, and Zillow shareholders will receive one share of Class A or Class B common stock of the newly created holding company for each share of Zillow Class A or Class B common stock, as the case may be. Trulia stockholders will own approximately 33% of the combined company at closing. The value of the deal represents a premium of 25% to Trulia's closing price on July 25, 2014. The transaction is expected to close in 2015, pending the satisfaction of customary closing conditions, including shareholder and regulatory approvals.

Forward Looking Statements

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. Forward-looking statements generally relate to future events or our future financial or operating performance. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements because they contain words such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “expects,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “could,” “intends,” “target,” “projects,” “contemplates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “predicts,” “potential” or “continue” or the negative of these words or other similar terms or expressions that concern our expectations, strategy, plans or intentions. Forward-looking statements in this press release include, but are not limited to: our expectations regarding our business and marketing plans, including the expectation that more than 57 million unique visitors will to come to Trulia in the month of July; our expectations regarding our revenue and Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2014 and full year 2014; and our expectations regarding the proposed merger with Zillow. Our expectations and beliefs regarding these matters may not materialize, and actual results in future periods are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected. These risks include the possibility that we do not effectively execute on our national marketing campaign, and that our national marketing campaign does not increase the number of consumers, subscribers and advertisers on our marketplace; the housing market weakens; consumers, subscribers and advertisers do not continue to use our marketplace; we experience expenses that exceed our expectations; the proposed merger does not close due to the failure to obtain shareholder or regulatory approval or otherwise; and the disruption to our business caused by the merger is greater than expected and makes it difficult to maintain certain strategic relationships. The forward-looking statements contained in this press release are also subject to other risks and uncertainties, including those more fully described in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2014 that was filed on May 2, 2014. The forward-looking statements in this press release are based on information available to Trulia as of the date hereof, and Trulia disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking statements, except as required by law.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures: Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income/(Loss) and Pro Forma Financial Information

Trulia’s stated results include certain non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net loss attributable to common stockholders. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net loss attributable to common stockholders adjusted to exclude interest income, interest expense, depreciation and amortization, income taxes, acquisition costs, restructuring costs, and compensation paid in stock. We define adjusted net loss attributable to common stockholders as net loss attributable to common stockholders adjusted to exclude acquisition costs, restructuring costs, and compensation paid in stock. Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net loss attributable to common stockholders exclude these items as they are often excluded by other companies to help investors understand the operational performance of their business, and in the case of compensation paid in stock, can be difficult to predict. Trulia believes these adjustments provide useful comparative information to investors. Trulia also considers these non-GAAP financial measures to be important because they provide useful measures of the operating performance of Trulia and are used by Trulia’s management for that purpose. In addition, investors often use similar measures to evaluate the operating performance of a company. Non-GAAP results are presented for supplemental informational purposes only for understanding Trulia’s operating results. The non-GAAP results should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and may be different from similarly-titled non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

For future periods, Trulia is unable to provide a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income/(loss) as a result of the uncertainty regarding, and the potential variability of, the amounts of interest income, interest expense, depreciation and amortization, compensation paid in stock, and certain other infrequently occurring items, such as acquisition related costs and restructuring costs, that may be incurred in the future.
