MediaMind Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: MDMD), the leading independent global provider of integrated digital advertising campaign management solutions, today reported results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2010.
For the 2010 third quarter, revenues increased 16.3% to $17.7 million compared to $15.2 million in the prior-year period. For 2010 third quarter, revenues excluding the impact of foreign currencies were $18.0 million. See the reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures provided in the financial data below. Year-over-year revenue growth was attributable to the addition of new advertising customers and higher volumes of ad impressions, partially offset by softness in select markets. Gross profit margin was 94.4% for the 2010 third quarter compared to 94.6% a year ago. Net income for the period was $1.0 million, or $0.05 per pro-forma diluted share, compared to $1.9 million, or $0.14 per pro-forma diluted share, in the third quarter of 2009. Pro-forma diluted share amounts give effect to the conversion of all outstanding shares of the Company’s preferred stock into shares of common stock (which occurred with the Company’s initial public offering) as of the beginning of each period presented. GAAP earnings per diluted share for the period were $0.04, compared to $0.14 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2009. Profitability for the fiscal 2010 third quarter was in-line with the Company’s expectations.
Net income for the 2010 third quarter on a non-GAAP basis was $2.3 million, or $0.12 per pro-forma diluted share, compared to $2.6 million, or $0.18 per pro-forma diluted share, in the prior-year period. Non-GAAP net income excludes non-cash share-based compensation expense, net of taxes, of approximately $1.3 million and $0.7 million, for the third quarter of 2010 and 2009, respectively. Adjusted EBITDA for the 2010 third quarter was $2.7 million versus $3.2 million in the prior-year period. See the reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures provided in the financial data below.
“We delivered solid revenue growth and profitability in the third quarter of 2010, which is a seasonally slow period, as we continued to capitalize on the broader use of digital media by advertisers,” said Gal Trifon, President and CEO of MediaMind. “During the third quarter, we realized 32% growth in active advertisers and a significant increase in ad impression volumes driven by higher utilization rates, as our advertising partners increasingly rely on our comprehensive set of tools and solutions to meet their needs throughout the digital media campaign lifecycle. We also generated a 76% increase in standard display impressions over the same period last year which is indicative of our success in building our platform customers who use MediaMind as an end-to-end solution. Additionally, this quarter we introduced globally our latest platform iteration, MediaMind v2.0, which includes three new data driven products, that we expect to roll out in early 2011.”
Mr. Trifon continued, “Our performance in the third quarter reflected positive overall trends, however, revenue growth for the period was impacted by market-specific factors in Southern California and the U.K. Looking ahead, we are off to an encouraging start in our fourth quarter and remain confident that our leading technology solutions, diversified client base, and broad geographic reach will enable us to continue to gain market share and capitalize on the global growth of digital advertising.”
Mr. Trifon added, “Furthermore, after the completion of our IPO this quarter, the Company has approximately $100 million in cash and investments and no debt, and is well positioned to accelerate its growth and profitability.”
For the 2010 fourth quarter, MediaMind expects to generate revenues in the range of $25 to $26 million. Net income is expected to be in the range of $5.1 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, to $5.6 million, or $0.26 per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income is expected to be in the range of $5.9 million, or $0.27 per non-GAAP diluted share, to $6.4 million, or $0.29 per non-GAAP diluted share. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $8.8 million to $9.4 million.
