Smilebox Achieves Strong Top Line Growth and Double Digit EBITDA Margin

Perion Network Ltd. (NASDAQ: PERI), a digital media company that helps make the everyday life of second wave adopters easier and more enjoyable, today announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012.

Q1 2012 non-GAAP Financial Highlights Include:

  • Revenues increased 30% year-over-year to $11.3 million;
  • Product and other advertising revenues together tripled year-over-year reaching $5.7 million and accounted for over half of the revenues in the first quarter of 2012;
  • Net income totaled $2.2 million or 19% of revenues, up 36% from Q4 of 2011;
  • EBITDA was $2.6 million or 23% of revenues, up 117% from Q4 of 2011;
  • GAAP Cash flow from operations totaled $2.5 million

"The first quarter was a solid start to the year for us with top line growth of 30%, great profit margins and strong cash flow," said Chief Executive Officer Josef Mandelbaum. "The substantial growth in premium product and advertising revenue underpins the strength of our model and strategy. Given the positive momentum of the beginning of the year we are confident that we will achieve and perhaps exceed our initial guidance for 2012."

Q1 2012 Operating Metrics:

  • Total downloads in the first quarter of 2012 were 9.0 million, compared to 6.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2011;
  • Installed base was 13.3 million at the end of the first quarter of 2012, compared to 12.3 million at the end of 2011;
  • Premium subscribers increased slightly, despite seasonality, to 403,000 in the first quarter of 2012, from 402,000 at the end of 2011.

"Smilebox continues to grow at an accelerated pace with revenues growing 28% year over year and Q1 EBITDA margin reaching 14%," Mr. Mandelbaum concluded. "Furthermore, our applications in the mobile phone and tablet space are set to experience significant growth in Q3 with the launch of our revolutionary iPad email app and enhancements to our existing Smilebox iPhone photo app."

Non-GAAP Financial Comparison for the First Quarter of 2012:

Revenue: Q1'12 revenues were $11.3 million, similar to the prior quarter and increasing 30% compared to the first quarter of 2011. This was primarily as a result of the consolidation of Smilebox revenues and growth in product and other advertising revenues derived from Perion's IncrediMail product. The increase in IncrediMail premium product revenue was primarily due to shifting from a service offering to a product offering and we expect this to continue in the coming quarters. Search revenue declined largely due to a significant increase in media buying from competition which impacted the monetization of our installed base. As a result of steps taken since then, management is confident search revenue will increase in the coming quarters.

Gross Profits: Gross profit in the first quarter of 2012 was $10.5 million, up 3% sequentially and up 26% from $8.3 million in the first quarter of 2011. The gross profit margin remained healthy at 93% this last quarter, compared to 96% in the first quarter of 2011 and up from 91% in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Customer Acquisition Costs ("CAC"): In the first quarter of 2012, Perion invested $2.6 million in CAC, compared to $3.1 million last quarter and only $0.7 million in the first quarter of 2011. Management believes that this higher investment in customer acquisition is already bearing fruit and will significantly contribute to revenues this year.

EBITDA: In the first quarter of 2012, EBITDA was $2.6 million, compared to $1.4 million in the previous quarter and $3.7 million in the first quarter of 2011. The fluctuations in EBITDA were largely due to the changes in the level of investment in customer acquisition, as the Company over the last few quarters has ramped up its marketing efforts taking advantage of current market conditions to accelerate growth.

Net Income: In the first quarter 2012, net income was $2.2 million or $0.22 per share, as compared to $1.6 million, or $0.16 per share in the previous quarter, and $2.9 million, or $0.29 per share in the first quarter of 2011.

Cash Flow from Operations: Based on reports in U.S. GAAP, in the first quarter of 2012, cash flow from operations was $2.5 million compared to $2.1 million in the first quarter of 2011.

Non-GAAP measures

Non-GAAP financial measures consist of GAAP financial measures adjusted to exclude: Valuation adjustment on acquired deferred product revenues, amortization of acquired intangible assets, share-based compensation expenses, acquisition related expenses, non-recurring tax benefits. 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 Income.
