NEW YORK, May 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Everyday Health (NYSE: EVDY), a leading digital health and wellness company, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.  

  • First quarter total revenue grew 23% year-over-year to $37.5 million. Advertising and sponsorship revenue grew 29% year-over-year to $32.7 million.
  • Average revenue per advertiser increased 43% year-over-year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $3.2 million in the first quarter of 2014 compared to $166 thousand in the same quarter last year.

"We are off to a strong start for the year as a newly public company," said Ben Wolin, Co-Founder and CEO of Everyday Health. "Our multi-brand business model continues to deliver meaningful solutions to engage our consumer and professional audience, and to demonstrate quantifiable results for our marketers. As we continue to innovate and the healthcare industry continues to evolve, we will be well-positioned to pursue opportunities to influence health outcomes and the cost of care for payors, providers, and employers."

First Quarter 2014 Financial Results

  • Total revenue was $37.5 million, a 23% increase from $30.5 million in the first quarter of 2013. 
    • Advertising and sponsorship revenue was $32.7 million, a 29% increase from $25.4 million in the first quarter of 2013.
    • Premium services revenue was $4.8 million, a 6% decrease from $5.1 million in the first quarter of 2013, consistent with the Company's strategy of focusing on advertising and sponsorship revenue.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $3.2 million, compared to $166 thousand in the first quarter of 2013.
  • Net loss on a GAAP basis was ($7.8) million this quarter, compared to a net loss of ($9.2) million in the first quarter of 2013.  Net loss on a non-GAAP basis was ($2.5) million in the first quarter of 2014, compared to ($6.8) million in the first quarter of 2013. GAAP net loss per share was ($1.44) in the first quarter of 2014, which excludes the impact of transactions related to the Company's IPO. A description of the non-GAAP calculations and reconciliation to comparable GAAP measures is provided in the accompanying tables entitled "Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation" and "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Net Loss."
  • Pro forma for the transactions related to the Company's IPO, non-GAAP net loss per share was ($0.08) in the first quarter of 2014. Pro forma share count assumes the issuance of the shares sold in the IPO, as well as the conversion of all outstanding shares of preferred stock into common stock in connection with the IPO, as of January 1, 2014, and pro forma non-GAAP net loss per share is based on 30.0 million shares outstanding.

"During the first quarter, we executed well on our strategy of going deeper with existing clients, as evidenced by our strong growth rates in advertising and sponsorship revenue and average revenue per advertiser," said Brian Cooper, Chief Financial Officer of Everyday Health. "We also improved our operating leverage in three key areas – editorial and product, sales and marketing, and data and analytics – which contributed to significant bottom line growth and margin expansion."

Initial Public Offering

  • On April 2, 2014, the Company closed its initial public offering, which resulted in the issuance of 5.36 million shares of common stock and net proceeds of $67.9 million, after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and offering expenses. On April 30, 2014, pursuant to the underwriters' exercise of their IPO over-allotment option, the Company issued an additional 316,414 shares of common stock and received additional net proceeds of $4.1 million.  The Company's pro forma cash balance as of March 31, 2014, after giving effect to the receipt of the IPO net proceeds, was $89.6 million

Safe Harbor Provision

This press release may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements may be identified by their use of terms and phrases such as "anticipate," "enable," "expect," "will," "believe," "continue" and other similar terms and phrases, and such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, the statements regarding our future financial performance set forth under the heading "Financial Outlook." The outcome of the events described in these forward-looking statements is subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the results anticipated by these forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to: our ability to attract and retain users to our portfolio of properties; our ability to attract and retain customers; the timing and amount of advertising spending by our current and future customers; our ability to enter into new, or extend existing, partnership arrangements; our ability to successfully pursue opportunities in the broader health and wellness sectors; as well as those factors contained in the "Risk Factors" section of our final prospectus dated March 27, 2014 filed with the SEC on March 28, 2014 and our other SEC filings. All information in this release is as of May 12, 2014. Except as required by law, we undertake no obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statement made herein for any reason to conform the statement to actual results or changes in our expectations.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the financial measures presented in the Company's press release and related conference call or webcast in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"), we also present the following non-GAAP measures of financial performance: Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP earnings per share ("EPS").

A "non-GAAP financial measure" refers to a numerical measure of the Company's historical or future financial performance, financial position, or cash flows that excludes (or includes) amounts that are included in (or excluded from) the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the Company's financial statements. The Company provides certain non-GAAP measures as additional information relating to its operating results as a complement to results provided in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial information presented here should be considered in conjunction with, and not as a substitute for or superior to, the financial information presented in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered a measure of the Company's liquidity. There are significant limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures. Further, these measures may differ from the non-GAAP information, even where similarly titled, used by other companies and therefore should not be used to compare the Company's performance to that of other companies.

The Company has presented Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP EPS as non-GAAP financial measures in this press release. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net loss plus: interest expense, net; income tax expense; depreciation and amortization expense; stock-based compensation expense; compensation expense related to acquisition earnout arrangements; write-offs of unamortized deferred financing and other debt extinguishment costs; reduction in force severance charges; loss from discontinued operations; and certain other non-cash charges such as preferred stock warrant mark-to-market adjustments. We define non-GAAP net loss as net loss, plus non-cash stock-based compensation, non-cash deemed dividend on the Series G IPO ratchet, compensation expense related to acquisition earnout arrangements, loss from discontinued operations, and other unusual or significant adjustments such as the write-off of deferred finance costs and other debt extinguishment costs and the preferred stock mark-to-market adjustment. We define non-GAAP EPS as non-GAAP net loss divided by pro forma weighted-average shares outstanding, which assumes the issuance of the shares sold in the IPO, as well as the conversion of all outstanding shares of preferred stock into common stock in connection with the IPO, as of January 1, 2014.

The Company believes the use of non-GAAP financial measures, as a supplement to GAAP measures, is useful to investors in that they eliminate items that are either not part of the Company's core operations or do not require a cash outlay, such as stock-based compensation. Our management uses these non-GAAP financial measures when evaluating the Company's operating performance and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures help indicate underlying trends in the Company's business, are important in comparing current results with prior period results, and are useful to investors and financial analysts in assessing the Company's operating performance.
