Total revenue for the third quarter of 2012 was $17.3 million, an increase from $14.7 million of revenue in the third quarter of 2011.  Historical results have been reclassified to reflect continuing operations following the sale of the Company's media business in September.  GAAP net income for the third quarter of 2012, which includes a gain of $14 million before taxes from the sale of the media business, was $8.4 million or $1.27 per share compared to net loss of $2.7 million or $0.42 per share, for the same period a year ago. Loss from continuing operations for the third quarter was $2.0 million compared to a loss of $3.1 million for the same period a year ago.

Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the third quarter of 2012 was a loss of $2.0 million, compared to an adjusted EBITDA loss from continuing operations of $2.2 million for the same period a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA includes a loss from continuing operations before interest and excludes gain on the sale of assets, taxes, stock-based compensation, depreciation, and amortization.

Third Quarter Highlights:

  • Orders received increased by 21% in the third quarter of 2012 as compared with the same period last year.
  • ThinkGeek  launched over 380 new products.
  • Total cash and investments at the end of third quarter 2012 was $37.9 million including $17 million received from the sale of the media business.

"Geeknet delivered a solid quarter and we're excited about the momentum in the business," said Ken Langone, CEO and Executive Chairman, Geeknet. "With the sale of our online media business, this quarter marks a new beginning for Geeknet.  Our primary focus is now on ThinkGeek and we plan to aggressively drive growth and deliver profitable returns. ThinkGeek is truly a unique business with a very large market opportunity and we're excited about the upcoming holiday season."

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.
