Inuvo Reports First Half and Second Quarter 2016 Results

LITTLE ROCK, AR--(Marketwired - Aug 4, 2016) - Inuvo, Inc. (NYSE MKT: INUV), an advertising technology and digital publishing company, today announced financial results for the six months and three months ended June 30, 2016.

First Half and Second Quarter 2016 Financial Highlights

  • 2016 first half revenue totaled $34.4 million, an increase of 14% year-over-year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the first half of 2016 was $1.6 million.
  • 2016 second quarter revenue totaled $15.6 million, a 6.5% decrease year-over-year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2016 was $282 thousand.
  • GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2016 was $575 thousand or $0.02 net loss per share.
  • Cash balance at June 30, 2016 was $4.0 million.
  • There was no bank debt at June 30, 2016.

"The second quarter was unusually soft, the result of changes in advertiser demand which now appear to be remedied." stated Rich Howe, Chairman and CEO of Inuvo. "On an Adjusted EBITDA basis, we delivered $282 thousand and the current revenue trend suggests the second half of the year should improve sequentially. "

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 mainly under the ALOT brand. Both segments utilize the company's ad delivery software as a service (SaaS) technologies. 

Financial results for the three-month period ended June 30, 2016
Net revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2016, were $15.6 million compared to $16.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015. Revenue in our Partner Network was $4.7 million in the second quarter of 2016 compared to $9.3 million in the same quarter last year. The reason for the lower revenue in the Partner Network is due to lower demand from advertisers, in part the result of uncertainty surrounding the sale of an advertising partner, the result of which was fewer transactions and a reduction in the revenue received for ads we delivered. Revenue in our Owned and Operated Network was $10.9 million in the second quarter of 2016 compared to $7.4 million in the same quarter last year. The increased revenue in the Owned & Operated Network is from additional advertisements served to a growing user base of our owned and operated web properties. The increase in advertisements served and users was due in part to increased marketing of our owned and operated web properties and expanded verticals and content. Operating expenses increased from $9.1 million in the second quarter of 2015 to $12.3 million in the same quarter this year, due primarily to higher marketing expenses commensurate with growth within the Owned and Operated Network.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2016, GAAP net loss was $575 thousand or $0.02 net loss per share compared to $445 thousand net income, or $0.02 net income per diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2015.

Balance Sheet as of June 30, 2016
At June 30, 2016, cash and cash equivalents totaled $4.0 million and there was no bank debt.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

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) income, provides a more complete understanding of the Company's results of operations and the factors and trends affecting the Company's business.

Reconciliation of (Loss) Income from Continuing Operations before Taxes to Adjusted EBITDA

We present Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure of our performance. We defined Adjusted EBITDA as net (loss) income from continuing operations before taxes plus (i) interest expense, net, (ii) depreciation, (iii) amortization, and (iv) stock-based compensation. 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.
