RetailMeNot Announces Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

- Net Revenues were $59.5 million, up 37% year-over-year

AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- RetailMeNot, Inc. (NASDAQ:SALE), which operates the world's largest marketplace for digital offers, reported its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Second Quarter Key Metrics and Financial Results Highlights

(All comparisons are made to the second quarter of 2013)

  • Net revenues were $59.5 million, an increase of 37% compared to $43.4 million.
  • Organic net revenues increased 34%.  Organic net revenues exclude net revenues from acquired businesses not owned during both comparative periods.
  • Net revenues from international markets totaled $13.5 million, up 57% compared to $8.6 million and represented 23% of total net revenues.
  • Mobile net revenues totaled $10.7 million, up 114% compared to $5.0 million and represented 18% of total net revenues.  Mobile net revenues include net revenues from our mobile websites and applications and our in-store product.
  • Net income was $4.3 million, down 16% compared to net income of $5.1 million.  On a year-over year basis, the decline in net income is a result of increased investment primarily in product development, sales and marketing, and higher stock-based compensation expense.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $19.7 million, up 25%, representing 33% of net revenues, compared to $15.7 million.
  • Visits grew 27% to 154.2 million, compared to 121.2 million.  

"Our results continue to demonstrate the value of our multi-channel services that help consumers save money and enable retailers to increase sales in the United States and international markets," said Cotter Cunningham, CEO and Founder, RetailMeNot, Inc.  "Overall we saw strong growth in consumer usage and engagement across platforms. We believe that from discovery to purchase, we offer retailers high ROI channels that help them turn shoppers into buyers."

Operating Metrics

Visits. RetailMeNot defines a visit as a group of interactions that take place on one of RetailMeNot's websites from computers, smartphones, tablets or other mobile devices within a given time frame as measured by Google Analytics, a product that provides digital marketing intelligence. A single visit can contain multiple page views, events, social interactions, custom variables and e-commerce transactions. A single visitor can open multiple visits. Visits can occur on the same day, or over several days, weeks or months. As soon as one visit ends, there is then an opportunity to start a new visit. A visit ends either through the passage of time or a campaign change, with a campaign generally meaning arrival via search engine, referring site or campaign-tagged information. A visit ends through passage of time either after 30 minutes of inactivity or at midnight Pacific Time. A visit ends through a campaign change if a visitor arrives via one campaign or source, leaves the site, and then returns via another campaign or source.  Visits for the period do not include interactions through our mobile applications.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To provide investors with additional information regarding RetailMeNot's financial results, RetailMeNot has disclosed in the table below and elsewhere herein adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure. RetailMeNot has provided a reconciliation below of adjusted EBITDA to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.  RetailMeNot defines adjusted EBITDA as net income plus depreciation, amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, third-party acquisition-related costs, other non-cash operating expenses (including compensation arrangements entered into in connection with acquisitions), net interest expense, other non-operating income or expense (including changes in fair value of warrant liabilities and contingent consideration) and income taxes, net of any foreign exchange income or expense.

RetailMeNot discloses adjusted EBITDA because it is a key measure used by RetailMeNot and its board of directors to understand and evaluate RetailMeNot's financial and operating performance, establish budgets and operational goals and as an element in determining executive compensation.  RetailMeNot believes it also facilitates period-to-period comparisons of operations that could otherwise be masked by the effect of the expenses that RetailMeNot excludes in this non-GAAP financial measure and facilitates comparisons with other peer companies, many of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results.  However, adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of RetailMeNot's results as reported under GAAP. Because of these limitations, you should consider adjusted EBITDA alongside other financial performance measures, including various cash flow metrics, net income and RetailMeNot's other GAAP results.

Real-time data streaming and the Internet of Things (IoT) possess the power to turn this vision into a reality. However, most organizations today are building their data infrastructure to focus solely on addressing immediate business needs vs. a platform capable of quickly adapting emerging technologies to address future ...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

In her general session at 21st Cloud Expo, Rebecca Wanta explained how the strategy must focus on DX and include a commitment from top management to create great IT jobs, monitor ...
