CEO Andres Reiner stated, “We are excited to report another strong performance in the fourth quarter and full year 2012, exceeding expectations with record revenues. Our growth was driven by a strong uptick in new customer signings in our business-to-business industries, a testament to PROS attractive value proposition for companies interested in monetizing their big data. I am proud of the PROS team worldwide for this incredible accomplishment, and believe PROS has never been in a stronger position as we enter 2013 with great momentum.”

2012 Business Highlights
- Signed new customers across several industries in the fourth quarter, such as American Standard, Guardian Analytics, O'Reilly Automotive, Oman Air, Panduit, Stramit Building Products, and Volvo Group Trucks, among others. These companies joined those who selected PROS earlier in the year, including ARUP Laboratories, Ecolab, Hewlett Packard, Kimberly-Clark Professional, Nexidia, Sichuan Airlines, TE Connectivity, and Zimmer among others.
- Filed six new patents, introduced Rebate Optimizer as a new product, and released new versions of our big data applications for pricing and sales effectiveness.
- Announced participation in Microsoft Dynamics ISV Partnership Program to provide Microsoft Dynamics CRM customers with actionable, real-time customer insights that can improve sales performance.
- Achieved new product certifications from SAP for integration of PROS solutions into SAP ERP and SAP CRM, providing the most complete and seamless integration experience in SAP. Approximately two-thirds of PROS new B2B customers signed in 2012 run SAP, and more than half of PROS B2B customers overall run SAP.
- Increased annual headcount by 31% to approximately 700 people, reflecting investments made across the company in support of our long-term growth.
Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Charles Murphy stated, “Our strong performance was directly attributable to the investments we have made to diversify our business, expand our go-to-market initiatives and increase awareness for our solutions, resulting in 22% revenue growth for the full year and very strong backlog entering 2013. We are confident in our ability to grow full year 2013 revenue approximately 22% to 23%. We plan to accelerate our investments in order to capture the significant opportunity we see in front of us and believe we can drive growth of 20% or greater for the next several years while delivering solid profitability.”
The attached table provides a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP income from operations and net income as well as net income per share available to common stockholders for the quarter and the year ended December 31, 2012 and 2011.
Based on information as of today, PROS anticipates the following:
- Total revenue for the first quarter of 2013 in the range of $32.7 million to $33.3 million
- GAAP income from operations of $0.3 million to $0.9 million and GAAP earnings per share of $0.05 to $0.06 for the first quarter of 2013. GAAP earnings per share includes a tax benefit of approximately $1.1 million related to the 2012 R&E tax credit recorded in the first quarter
- Non-GAAP income from operations of $3.4 million to $4.0 million, which excludes estimated non-cash share-based compensation charges of approximately $3.1 million for the first quarter of 2013
- Non-GAAP earnings per share, which includes the full impact of the 2012 R&E tax credit recorded in the first quarter, is expected to be $0.12 to $0.14 for the first quarter of 2013. Excluding the 2012 R&E tax credit, non-GAAP earnings per share is expected to be $0.08 to $0.10 for the first quarter of 2013. On a non-GAAP basis there will be essentially no tax provision in the quarter
- Estimated weighted average of 29.0 million diluted shares outstanding for the first quarter of 2013
