Inuvo, Inc. Reports Net Income of $0.02 per Share for the Second Quarter 2014

CONWAY, AR--(Marketwired - Jul 31, 2014) - Inuvo, Inc. (NYSE MKT: INUV), an Internet marketing and technology company that delivers targeted advertisements into websites and applications reaching desktop and mobile devices, today announced net income of $382,000 or $0.02 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2014. Revenue for the second quarter of 2014 was $10.9 million, compared to $10.1 million in the first quarter of 2014 and $13.1 million for the second quarter of 2013. Adjusted EBITDA was $1.2 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to $848,000 in the second quarter of 2013.

"We are pleased with our sequential revenue growth rate of 8% in the second quarter as compared to the preceding quarter, while also noting that our owned & operated sites and applications grew 31% in that same period. Mobile revenues increased 122% from the immediate prior quarter and represented 43% of overall second quarter top line results. We expect the revenue contribution of mobile to continue as we launch new websites and applications," stated, Richard Howe, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Inuvo. "The lower year over year revenue was primarily due to our previously announced decision to transition out of the toolbar business and deploy more resources towards scaling Inuvo's overall network through content rich owned and operated websites and applications, a strategy now proven to be a driver of new growth and improved profitability."

Second Quarter 2014 Highlights

  • Net income was $382,000 or $0.02 per diluted share, largely unchanged from the second quarter of 2013.
  • ALOT sites and applications revenue was $4.8 million in the second quarter of 2014, a 156% improvement over the second quarter of 2013 and a 31% improvement over the immediate prior quarter.
  • Operating profit was $468,000 compared to $86,000 in the second quarter of last year; operating expenses improved nearly 5% from $6.1 million in 2013 to $5.8 million in 2014.
  • Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, improved 41% to $1.2 million as compared to $848,000 in the second quarter last year.

First Half 2014 Highlights

  • Net income was $1.1 million or $0.04 per diluted share, as compared to $91,000 in the first half of 2013.
  • ALOT sites revenue was $8.5 million, a 109% improvement over the first half of 2013.
  • Operating profit was $1.1 million as compared to a loss of $306,000 in the first half of 2013.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $2.5 million as compared to $2.2 million in the first half of 2013.

The Inuvo business is managed along two segments, the Partner Network and the Owned and Operated Network. The Partner Network facilitates transactions between advertisers and our partners' websites and applications. The Owned and Operated Network designs, builds and markets mobile-ready consumer websites and applications under the ALOT brand. The segments share the utilization of the company's core ad delivery technology platform. 

Three-month financial results for the period ended June 30, 2014
Net revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2014, were $10.9 million as compared to $13.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013. The lower year over year revenue comparison for the quarter was primarily due to a planned transition out of the toolbar product, which had revenue of $542,000 in the second quarter of 2014 compared to $2.7 million in the same quarter last year. In addition, we incurred lower revenues but higher margins in the Partner Network in the quarter ended June 30, 2014 compared to the same quarter last year due to a focus on delivering higher quality clicks and the continued enforcement of publisher contract terms and conditions associated with that strategy. Revenue in our Owned and Operated Network was $5.4 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to $4.6 million in the same quarter last year and reflects the transition from toolbar to content rich websites and applications within the segment. Operating expenses also improved in the current quarter compared to the same quarter last year due in large part to the lower cost of operating in Arkansas.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2014, Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure was $1.2 million compared to $848,000 in the second quarter of 2013. The Company reported net income of $382,000, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the three months ended June 30, 2014.

Reconciliation of Net Loss from Continuing Operations before Taxes to Adjusted EBITDA

In addition to disclosing financial results in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), our earnings release contains the non-GAAP financial measure "Adjusted EBITDA."

Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of performance defined in accordance with GAAP. However, management believes that Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors in evaluating the Company's performance because Adjusted EBITDA is a commonly used financial analysis tool for measuring and comparing companies in the Company's industry in areas of operating performance.

Management believes that the disclosure of Adjusted EBITDA offers an additional view of the Company's operations that, when coupled with the GAAP results and the reconciliation to GAAP net loss, provides a more complete understanding of the Company's results of operations and the factors and trends affecting the Company's business.

We present Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure of our performance. We defined Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) from continuing operations before taxes plus (i) interest expense, net, (ii) depreciation, (iii) amortization, (iv) stock-based compensation, and (v) accrued severance and other non-recurring, noncash expense. These further adjustments are itemized above. You are encouraged to evaluate these adjustments and the reasons we consider them appropriate for supplemental analysis. In evaluating Adjusted EBITDA, you should be aware that in the future we may incur expenses that are the same or similar to some of the adjustments in the presentation. Our presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items.
