Rainmaker Reports First Quarter 2013 Financial Results

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwired - May 13, 2013) -  Rainmaker Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: RMKR), a recognized technology leader in the rapidly emerging Cloud-Based B2B e-Commerce market, today reported financial results for its fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2013.

Net revenue in the first quarter of 2013 was $4.7 million, compared to net revenue in the preceding quarter of $5.2 million and net revenue in the first quarter of 2012 of $6.4 million. Gross margin for the first quarter of 2013 declined to 35%, compared to 40% in the preceding quarter and 43% in the 2012 comparative period.

Net loss from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2013 was $3.5 million, or a net loss of $0.12 per share, compared with a net loss from continuing operations in the preceding quarter of $921,000, or a net loss of $0.04 per share, and a net loss from continuing operations in the first quarter of 2012 of $1.2 million, or a net loss of $0.04 per share.

First quarter 2013 non-GAAP net loss from continuing operations, which excludes stock-based compensation expense of $947,000 and a $225,000 favorable change in fair value of warrant liability, was $2.7 million, or a net loss of $0.09 per share, compared with a non-GAAP net loss from continuing operations in the fourth quarter of 2012 of $1.2 million, or a net loss of $0.04 per share, which excludes stock-based compensation expense of $202,000, a $484,000 favorable change in fair value of warrant liability and amortization of intangible assets from acquisitions of $2,000. First quarter 2012 non-GAAP net loss from continuing operations, which excludes stock-based compensation expense of $187,000, amortization of intangible assets of $28,000 and a favorable change in fair value of warrant liability of $7,000, was $990,000, or a net loss of $0.04 per share. See Exhibit A for a reconciliation of GAAP net loss from continuing operations to non-GAAP net loss from continuing operations.

Total cash and cash equivalents were $5.1 million at March 31, 2013, compared to $4.5 million at December 31, 2012. On April 5, 2013, we completed the sale of approximately 13 million shares of our common stock in a registered direct offering. The gross cash proceeds from the sale of common stock was approximately $5.8 million, with net proceeds totaling approximately $5.5 million.

"The first quarter revenue was slightly higher than we projected, but down from $5.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 as we continued to realign our customer base and jettison non-strategic customers with low margins, no margins or that represented a financial risk to the company," said Don Massaro, President and CEO. "The realignment is complete, and we have a solid base of customers upon which we can build. We expect to see the initial financial impact of our restructuring efforts in the second half of this year. Our employees are focused on pursuing more business with profit potential going forward," he said.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Rainmaker Systems' management evaluates and makes operating decisions using various performance measures. In addition to GAAP results, Rainmaker also considers non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share. These non-GAAP measures are derived from the revenue generated by Rainmaker's business and the costs directly related to the generation of that revenue, such as costs of services, sales and marketing expenses, technology expenses and general and administrative expenses, that management considers in evaluating the Company's operating performance. These non-GAAP measures exclude certain expenses that management does not consider to be related to the Company's core operating performance.

Non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share are supplemental measures of Rainmaker's performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. Moreover, they should not be considered as an alternative to any performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, or as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities or as a measure of liquidity. Rainmaker presents these non-GAAP measures because management considers them to be important supplemental measures of Rainmaker's operating performance and profitability trends, and because management believes they give investors useful information on period-to-period performance as evaluated by management. Rainmaker believes that the use of these non-GAAP measures provides consistency and comparability with Rainmaker's past financial reports and also facilitates comparisons with other companies in Rainmaker's industry, a number of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results. Management has used these non-GAAP measures when evaluating operating performance because management believes that the inclusion or exclusion of the items described above provides an additional measure of the Company's core operating results and facilitates comparisons of the Company's core operating performance against prior periods and the Company's business model objectives. Rainmaker has chosen to provide this information to investors to enable them to perform additional analysis of past, present and future operating performance and as a supplemental means to evaluate the Company's ongoing core operations.

Non-GAAP net loss from continuing operations was $2.7 million for the first quarter of 2013 and consists of net loss from continuing operations excluding stock based compensation expense, amortization of purchased intangible assets, loss on fair value re-measurement and change in fair value of warrant liability. Stock based compensation expense was $947,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and represents the current quarter recognition of compensation expense related to stock options and restricted stock awards granted prior to and during the quarter. The change in fair value of warrant liability was a $225,000 gain for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and related to a reduction in the fair value of the common stock warrant liability. Amortization of purchased intangible assets was $0 for the three months ended March 31, 2013. See Exhibit A for a reconciliation of GAAP net loss from continuing operations to non-GAAP net loss.

RECONCILIATION OF GAAP NET LOSS FROM CONTINUING OPERATIONS TO

(1) To supplement our financial results presented on a GAAP basis, we use non-GAAP net loss, which excludes from net loss from continuing operations certain business combination accounting entries and expenses related to acquisitions as well as other expenses including stock-based compensation, gain due to change in fair value of warrant liability and non-recurring items. As we have completed several acquisitions since 2005, we believe non-GAAP net loss provides useful information to investors regarding the underlying business trends and performance of the Company's ongoing operations and is useful for period over period comparisons of such operations. Non-GAAP net loss is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP net loss or GAAP net loss from continuing operations, and should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.
(2) We estimate the fair value of share based payment awards on the date of grant using an option-pricing model for option grants and our closing share price as reported on NASDAQ for restricted share grants. The value of the portion of the award that is ultimately expected to vest is recognized as expense over the requisite service periods. Stock-based compensation expenses will recur in future periods.
(3) We have excluded the effect of amortization of intangibles from our non-GAAP net loss. We believe this helps investors understand a significant reason why our GAAP operating expenses increase following acquisitions. Investors should note that the use of intangible assets contributed to revenue earned during the period and will contribute to future revenue generation and should also note that these amortization expenses are recurring. As of December 31, 2012, we had fully amortized our purchased intangible assets relating to our prior acquisitions.
(4) In the quarter ended March 31, 2013, we recorded a gain in fair value of the warrant liability of $225,000 related to a reduction in the common stock warrant liability from our 2011 equity offering compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2012 in which we recorded a gain of $7,000.
