TechTarget Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Technology media company TechTarget, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTGT) today announced financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2012. Additionally, the Company announced that it has appointed Bob Burke, former CEO of Art Technology Group (ATG), to its Board of Directors.

“Despite the continued weakness in the IT market, we continue to make good progress with our Activity Intelligence™ product roll-out and international expansion, which we are optimistic will result in a return to growth in 2013,” said Greg Strakosch, TechTarget Chairman and CEO. “We continue to manage expenses carefully as evidenced by our healthy margins and cash flow.”

With respect to results for the quarter, total Q3 2012 revenues decreased 5% to $24.5 million compared to Q3 2011. Q3 2012 online revenue decreased by 6% to $20.4 million compared to Q3 2011. Online revenues represented 83% of total Q3 2012 revenues. Q3 2012 events revenue decreased by 1% to $4.1 million compared to Q3 2011 and represented 17% of total Q3 2012 revenues.

Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, other income and expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, as further adjusted to eliminate stock-based compensation) for Q3 2012 decreased 19% to $4.4 million compared to $5.4 million for Q3 2011.

The Company generated $6.0 million of cash in the quarter.

Total gross profit margin for Q3 2012 was 71%, compared to 73% for Q3 2011. Online gross profit margin decreased to 71% for Q3 2012, compared to 75% for Q3 2011. Events gross profit margin increased to 67% for Q3 2012, as compared to 64% for Q3 2011.

Net income was $0.7 million for Q3 2012 compared to $1.0 million in Q3 2011. Adjusted net income (net income adjusted to eliminate amortization, stock-based compensation expense and the related income tax impact of these charges) for Q3 2012 was $2.0 million compared to $2.6 million for Q3 2011. Net income per basic share was $0.02 for Q3 2012 compared to $0.03 in Q3 2011. Adjusted net income per share (adjusted net income divided by adjusted weighted average diluted shares outstanding) for Q3 2012 was $0.05 compared to $0.06 for Q3 2011.

The Company’s balance sheet and financial position remain strong. As of September 30, 2012, the Company’s cash, cash equivalents and investments totaled $72.6 million, and the Company had no outstanding bank debt.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This release and the accompanying tables include a discussion of adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income and adjusted net income per share, all of which are non-GAAP financial measures which are provided as a complement to results provided in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). The term “adjusted EBITDA” refers to a financial measure that we define as earnings before net interest, other income and expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, as further adjusted to exclude stock-based compensation and restructuring charges, if any. The term “adjusted EBITDA margin” refers to a financial measure which we define as adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of total revenues. The term “adjusted net income” refers to a financial measure which we define as net income adjusted for amortization, stock-based compensation and restructuring charges, if any, as further adjusted for the related income tax impact of the adjustments. The term “adjusted net income per share” refers to a financial measure which we define as adjusted net income divided by adjusted weighted average diluted shares outstanding. These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. In addition, our definition of adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income and adjusted net income per share may not be comparable to the definitions as reported by other companies. We believe adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income and adjusted net income per share are relevant and useful information because it provides us and investors with additional measurements to compare the Company’s operating performance. These measures are part of our internal management reporting and planning process and are primary measures used by our management to evaluate the operating performance of our business, as well as potential acquisitions. The components of adjusted EBITDA include the key revenue and expense items for which our operating managers are responsible and upon which we evaluate their performance. In the case of senior management, adjusted EBITDA is used as one of the principal financial metrics in their annual incentive compensation program. Adjusted EBITDA is also used for planning purposes and in presentations to our board of directors. Adjusted net income is useful to us and investors because it presents an additional measurement of our financial performance, taking into account depreciation, which we believe is an ongoing cost of doing business, but excluding the impact of certain non-cash expenses and items not directly tied to the core operations of our business. Furthermore, we intend to provide these non-GAAP financial measures as part of our future earnings discussions and, therefore, the inclusion of these non-GAAP financial measures will provide consistency in our financial reporting. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to GAAP is provided in the accompanying tables.
