FAIRFAX, Va., Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Geeknet, Inc. (Nasdaq: GKNT), the parent company of online retailer ThinkGeek.com, today announced financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2012.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120510/MM05555LOGO)

Total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $66.3 million, an increase from $54.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2011.  Historical results have been reclassified to reflect continuing operations following the sale of the Company's Media business in September.  Net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $6.1 million or $0.92 per diluted share compared to net income of $5.9 million or $0.92 per diluted share for the same period a year ago.  Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $7.5 million, compared to an adjusted EBITDA of $5.8 million for the same period a year ago.  A reconciliation of net income as reported to adjusted EBITDA is included in this release.

2012 ThinkGeek Highlights:

  • Delivered Adjusted EBITDA of $2.9 million versus a loss of $(364,000) in 2011
  • Increased orders received by 23% in 2012 as compared to 2011
  • Launched approximately 1,400 new products, including Mega Stomp Panic, 8-Bitty Bluetooth mobile gaming controller, and the Minecraft Light-Up Redstone Ore
  • Purchases made on mobile devices in 2012 increased 126%
  • Increased social media presence, ranking #22 on the Internet Retailer Social Media 300 List
  • Total cash and investments at the end of the fourth quarter 2012 was $57.3 million, up $20.4 million from the fourth quarter of 2011.

"The fourth quarter marked another successful holiday season, with 21% revenue growth and positive EBITDA and cash from operations," said Ken Langone, Executive Chairman, Geeknet.  "2013 marks a new beginning for Geeknet as we dedicate our focus to ThinkGeek. With a new leadership team in place, I'm confident that we'll continue to grow the business and take advantage of the large market opportunity in front of us." 

Revenue for 2012 grew 20% to $118.9 million. Net income for 2012 was $13.9 million, or $2.12 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $(1.5) million, or $(0.24) per diluted share, for 2011.  2012 GAAP net income includes a gain of $13.7 million from the sale of the Media business in the third quarter of 2012 and a $4.0 million gain from the sale of our Collabnet investment in the second quarter of 2012. Adjusted EBITDA for 2012 was $2.9 million, compared to an adjusted EBITDA loss of $(364,000) for 2011.  A reconciliation of net income or loss as reported to adjusted EBITDA is included in this release.

Supplemental schedules of the Company's quarterly statements of operations and operational statistics are available on the Company's web site at investors.geek.net.

During the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company reviewed its accounting treatment for accruing liabilities for its Geek Points loyalty program and determined that the liabilities were understated as of December 31, 2011.  Although the impact of the adjustments is immaterial, the Company has adjusted its financial statements for all prior periods presented in this press release.  The impact of the adjustments was an increase to cost of revenues of $0.1 million and $0.3 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2011, respectively.   The accumulated impact from prior period adjustments as of the year ended December 31, 2011 was a $1.2 million increase in accumulated deficit; and an increase of $0.9 million in accrued liabilities and other, and $0.3 million in other long-term liabilities.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, we also report adjusted EBITDA.  Adjusted EBITDA 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.  We believe that adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to both management and investors and is an additional measurement which may be used to evaluate our operating performance.  Our management and Board of Directors use adjusted EBITDA as part of their reporting and planning process and it is the primary measure we use to evaluate our operating performance.  In addition, we have historically reported adjusted EBITDA to the investment community.  We also believe that the financial analysts who regularly follow and report on us and the business sector in which we compete use adjusted EBITDA to prepare their financial performance estimates to measure our performance against other sector participants and to project our future financial results.

We define adjusted EBITDA as earnings from continuing operations before interest and excludes gain on the sale of assets, taxes, stock-based compensation, depreciation, and amortization The method we use to produce adjusted EBITDA is not computed according to GAAP, is likely to differ from the methods used by other companies and should not be regarded as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. Adjusted EBITDA, as we compute it, excludes certain expenses that we believe are not indicative of our core operating results, as well as income taxes, stock-based compensation and depreciation and amortization.  We consider our core operating results to include revenue recorded in a particular period and the related expenses that are intended to directly drive operating income during that period.

The EBITDA calculation excludes interest, income taxes and depreciation and amortization by its nature.  In addition, when we compute adjusted EBITDA we exclude discontinued operations, stock-based compensation, gain on sale of assets and other amounts included in the Interest income and other income (expense) net caption, as we believe that these amounts represent income and expenses that are not directly related to our core operations.  Although some of the items may recur on a regular basis, management does not consider activities associated with these items as core to its operations.  With respect to stock-based compensation, we recognize expenses associated with stock-based compensation that require management to make assumptions about our common stock, such as expected future stock price volatility, the anticipated duration of outstanding stock options and awards and the rate at which we recognize the corresponding stock-based compensation expense over the course of future fiscal periods.  While other forms of expenses (such as cash compensation, inventory costs and real estate costs) are reasonably correlated to our underlying business and such costs are incurred principally or wholly in the particular fiscal period being reported, stock-based compensation expense is not reasonably correlated to the particular fiscal period in question, but rather is based on expected future events that have no relationship (and in certain instances, an inverse relationship) with how well we currently operate our business. Gain on sale of assets and discontinued operations are excluded from adjusted EBITDA because such activities are not representative of our core operations.
