Rubicon Project Announces Record Second Quarter Financial Results

The Rubicon Project, Inc. (NYSE: RUBI), a leader in advertising automation with one of the industry’s largest independent real-time trading platforms for the buying and selling of advertising, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014.

“We closed another record quarter, exceeding expectations with revenue growth accelerating to 49% and reporting a positive adjusted EBITDA,” said Frank Addante, CEO and Chief Product Architect of Rubicon Project. “Our managed revenue from RTB grew 75% year-over-year, we released video into private beta and took a huge leap in mobile. With the addition of InMobi, we now power the world’s largest mobile native advertising exchange.”

Q2 2014 Financial Results:

  • Revenue was $28.3 million for the second quarter of 2014, an increase of 49% from $19.0 million for the second quarter of 2013.
  • Adjusted EBITDA2 was $2.7 million for the second quarter of 2014 compared to $2.1 million for the second quarter of 2013.
  • Net loss was $9.4 million for the second quarter of 2014 compared to a net loss of $2.1 million for the second quarter of 2013.
  • Net loss per share attributable to common stockholders was $0.29 for the second quarter of 2014, based on 32.3 million weighted-average shares outstanding. This compares to a net loss per share of $0.28 for the second quarter of 2013, which was based on 11.4 million weighted-average shares outstanding.
  • Non-GAAP earnings per share2 was breakeven for the second quarter of 2014, based on 33.2 million non-GAAP weighted-average shares outstanding. This compares to non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.01 for the second quarter 2013, which was based on 26.1 million non-GAAP weighted-average shares outstanding.

Key Operational and Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Rubicon Project’s management evaluates and makes operating decisions using various operational and financial measures.

Operational Measures

Managed revenue is an operational measure that represents the advertising spending transacted on our platform, and would represent our revenue if we were to record our revenue on a gross basis instead of a net basis. Managed revenue does not represent revenue reported in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”). We review managed revenue for internal management purposes to assess market share and scale. Many companies in our industry record revenue on a gross basis, so tracking our managed revenue allows us to compare our results to the results of those companies. Our managed revenue is influenced by the volume and characteristics of paid impressions, and average CPM.

Take rate is an operational measure that represents our share of managed revenue. We review take rate for internal management purposes to assess the development of our marketplace with buyers and sellers. Our take rate can be affected by a variety of factors, including the terms of our arrangements with buyers and sellers active on our platform in a particular period, the scale of a buyer’s or seller’s activity on our platform, product mix, the implementation of new products, platforms and solution features, and the overall development of the digital advertising ecosystem.

Financial Measures

This press release includes information relating to adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP earnings (loss) per share, which are financial measures that have not been prepared in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures are used by our management and board of directors, in addition to our GAAP results, to understand and evaluate our operating performance and trends, to prepare and approve our annual budget, and to develop short- and long-term operational plans. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information about our core operating results and thus are appropriate to enhance the overall understanding our past financial performance and our prospects for the future.

These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to be considered in isolation from, as substitutes for, or as superior to, the corresponding financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP earnings (loss) per share eliminate the impact of items that we do not consider indicative of our core operating performance and operating performance on a per share basis. You are encouraged to evaluate these adjustments, and review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most comparable GAAP financial measures, and the reasons we consider them appropriate. It is important to note that the particular items we exclude from, or include in, our non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the items excluded from, or included in, similar non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. See “Reconciliation of net loss to adjusted EBITDA” and “Calculation of net loss attributable to common stockholders to non-GAAP earnings (loss) per share” included as part of this press release.

We define adjusted EBITDA as net loss adjusted for stock-based compensation expense, depreciation and amortization, interest income or expense, change in fair value of pre-IPO convertible preferred stock warrant liabilities, and other income or expense, which mainly consists of foreign exchange gains and losses, certain other non-recurring income or expenses such as acquisition and related costs, and provision for income taxes. We believe adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors in evaluating our operating performance for the following reasons:

  • adjusted EBITDA is widely used by investors and securities analysts to measure a company’s operating performance without regard to items such as stock-based compensation expense, depreciation and amortization, interest income or expense, change in fair value of preferred stock warrant liabilities, foreign exchange gains and losses, certain other non-recurring income or expense such as acquisition and related costs, and provision for income taxes that can vary substantially from company to company depending upon their financing, capital structures and the method by which assets were acquired;
  • our management uses adjusted EBITDA in conjunction with GAAP financial measures for planning purposes, including the preparation of our annual operating budget, as a measure of operating performance and the effectiveness of our business strategies, and in communications with our board of directors concerning our financial performance;
  • adjusted EBITDA may sometimes be considered by the compensation committee of our board of directors in connection with the determination of compensation for our executive officers; and
  • adjusted EBITDA provides consistency and comparability with our past financial performance, facilitates period-to-period comparisons of operations, and facilitates comparisons with other peer companies, many of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results.

Although adjusted EBITDA is frequently used by investors and securities analysts in their evaluations of companies, adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results of operations as reported under GAAP. These limitations include:

  • stock-based compensation is a non-cash charge and is and will remain an element of our long-term incentive compensation package, although we exclude it as an expense when evaluating our ongoing operating performance for a particular period;
  • depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, and the assets being depreciated or amortized will often have to be replaced in the future; adjusted EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for these replacements;
  • adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs, capital expenditures or contractual commitments, and therefore may not reflect periodic increases in capital expenditures;
  • adjusted EBITDA does not reflect cash requirements for income taxes and the cash impact of other income or expense; and
  • other companies may calculate adjusted EBITDA differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these limitations, we also consider other financial measures, including net loss.

Non-GAAP earnings (loss) per share is calculated by dividing non-GAAP net income (loss) by non-GAAP weighted-average shares outstanding. Non-GAAP net income (loss) is equal to net loss attributable to common stockholders excluding the change in fair value of preferred stock warrant liabilities, cumulative preferred stock dividends, stock-based compensation, acquisition and related items expense, foreign currency gains and losses, and amortization of intangible assets. The Non-GAAP weighted-average shares outstanding used to calculate non-GAAP earnings (loss) per share assume the net exercise of a preferred stock warrant and the conversion of each share of convertible preferred stock to one half share of common stock in connection with our initial public offering as if they had occurred at the beginning of each respective period presented, include the 6.4 million shares issued in our initial public offering from April 7, 2014, the date our IPO closed, and include the net exercise of a common stock warrant that occurred during the second quarter of 2014. The non-GAAP weighted-average shares outstanding used in our guidance for the third quarter and full year non-GAAP earnings (loss) per share include the 6.4 million shares issued in our initial public offering from April 7, the date our IPO closed. We believe non-GAAP earnings (loss) per share is useful to investors in evaluating our ongoing operational performance and our trends on a per share basis by taking into consideration all preferred stock ownership on an as-converted basis, and also facilitates comparison of our financial results on a per share basis with other companies, many of which present a similar non-GAAP measure. However, a potential limitation of our use of non-GAAP earnings (loss) per share is that other companies may define non-GAAP earnings (loss) per share differently, which may make comparison difficult. This measure may also exclude expenses that may have a material impact on our reported financial results. Because of these limitations, we also consider the comparable GAAP financial measure of net loss attributable to common stockholders.

The 3rd International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that its Call for Papers is now open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, da...

The information technology sphere undergoes what we like to call a paradigm shift, sea change or plain old ‘upheaval’ roughly every five years or so. Don’t ask anybody why this half decade cyclicality exists; it just has to be so. Accept that reinvention happens constantly and that major seismic shifts are tangibly felt by us human beings roughly every 1826.21 days… and we can move on.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data.
