Highlights:

  • Largest transaction in quarter from B2C customer
  • Strong cross sell contribution from new Marketo Financial Management application
  • Customer Engagement Engine adopted by more than 1,000 customers in less than one quarter
  • Data center transition improves gross margin

"We are delighted to report another outstanding financial quarter, with top line growth accelerating and gross margin increasing as a result of our data center transition efforts," commented Phil Fernandez, President and CEO of Marketo. "In the quarter, our SMB and mid-market business was particularly robust and our competitive win rate continued to be very strong.  I was also particularly pleased to see good initial contribution from several of our key growth initiatives."

Results for the third quarter of 2013:

  • Revenue: Revenue was $25.5 million, an increase of 65% over the prior year period and an increase of 13% from the quarter ended June 30, 2013.
  • Deferred Revenue: Deferred revenue at September 30, 2013 was $30.6 million, up 86% year over year from $16.5 million at September 30, 2012, and flat compared to $30.6 million at June 30, 2013.
  • Net Loss: GAAP net loss was $10.0 million, and net loss per common share, basic and diluted, was $(0.27). Non-GAAP net loss was $7.8 million, and net loss per common share, basic and diluted, was $(0.21), which excludes approximately $2.0 million in stock-based compensation expense and $125,000 of amortization of acquired intangible assets. GAAP and non-GAAP net loss per common share calculations are based on 37.1 million weighted average common shares outstanding.
  • Total Cash and Cash Equivalents: As of September 30, 2013, total cash and cash equivalents was $140.9 million, which includes net proceeds received in the third quarter of $22.5 million in connection with our follow-on offering completed on September 13, 2013.

For the full year 2013, Marketo expects to report:

  • Revenue in the range of $93.9 to $94.4 million
  • GAAP net loss per share in the range of $(1.77) to $(1.81)

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information Marketo provides financial statements that are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). To help understand Marketo's past financial performance and future results, Marketo has supplemented its financial results that it provides in accordance with GAAP with certain non-GAAP financial measures. The method Marketo uses to produce non-GAAP financial results is not computed according to GAAP and may differ from the methods used by other companies. Non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be read only in conjunction with the company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.  Specifically, management is excluding the following items from its non-GAAP historic and estimated net loss and net loss per common share, basic and diluted:

  • Stock-Based Compensation Expenses: The company's compensation strategy includes the use of stock-based compensation to attract and retain employees and executives. It is principally aimed at aligning their interests with those of our stockholders and at long-term employee retention, rather than to motivate or reward operational performance for any particular period. Thus, stock-based compensation expense varies for reasons that are generally unrelated to operational decisions and performance in any particular period.
  • Amortization of Acquired Intangible Assets: The company views amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, such as the amortization of the cost associated with an acquired company's research and development efforts, trade names, customer lists and customer relationships, as items arising from pre-acquisition activities determined at the time of an acquisition. While these intangible assets are continually evaluated for impairment, amortization of the cost of purchased intangibles is a static expense, one that is not typically affected by operations during any particular period.

"Safe harbor" statement under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 This press release contains forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements include general statements about our opportunities for growth and specific statements about our expected GAAP and non-GAAP financial results for the third quarter and the full year of 2013, including revenue, net loss, EPS, stock-based compensation expenses and amortization of acquired intangible assets. The achievement or success of the matters covered by such forward-looking statements involves risks, uncertainties and assumptions. If any such risks or uncertainties materialize or if any of the assumptions prove incorrect, the company's results could differ materially from the results expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements we make.

The risks and uncertainties referred to above include - but are not limited to - risks associated with: possible fluctuations in the company's financial and operating results; the company's rate of growth and anticipated revenue run rate, including the company's ability to convert deferred revenue and unbilled deferred revenue into revenue and, as appropriate, cash flow, and the continued growth and ability to maintain deferred revenue and unbilled deferred revenue; errors, interruptions or delays in the company's service or the company's Web hosting; breaches of the company's security measures; the financial impact of any previous and future acquisitions; the nature of the company's business model; the company's ability to continue to release, and gain customer acceptance of, new and improved versions of the company's service; successful customer deployment and utilization of the company's existing and future services; changes in the company's sales cycle; competition; relationships with platform providers; various financial aspects of the company's subscription model; unexpected increases in attrition or decreases in new business; the emerging markets in which the company operates; unique aspects of entering or expanding in international markets, the company's ability to hire, retain and motivate employees and manage the company's growth; changes in the company's customer base; technological developments; regulatory developments; litigation related to intellectual property and other matters, and any related claims, negotiations and settlements; unanticipated changes in the company's effective tax rate; fluctuations in the number of shares we have outstanding and the price of such shares; foreign currency exchange rates; collection of receivables; interest rates; factors affecting our deferred tax assets and ability to value and utilize them; the risks and expenses associated with the company's real estate and office facilities space; and general developments in the economy, financial markets, and credit markets.

Further information on these and other factors that could affect the company's financial results is included in the reports on Forms 10-K, 10-Q and 8-K and in other filings we make with the Securities and Exchange Commission from time to time.

Marketo assumes no obligation and does not intend to update these forward-looking statements, except as required by law.

RECONCILIATION OF GAAP MEASURES TO NON-GAAP MEASURES

(In thousands, except per share data)

(Unaudited)

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, Marketo uses non-GAAP measures of operating loss, net loss and net loss per share, which are adjusted to exclude certain costs, expenses, gains and losses we believe appropriate to enhance an overall understanding of our past financial performance and also our prospects for the future. These adjustments to our current period GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of Marketo's underlying operational results and trends and our marketplace performance. In addition, these adjusted non-GAAP results are among the information management uses as a basis for our planning and forecasting of future periods. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America.
