OpenTable reported consolidated net revenues for Q4 2013 of $52.3 million, a 22% increase over Q4 2012.  Consolidated net income for Q4 2013 was $10.3 million, or $0.43 per diluted share.  Non-GAAP consolidated net income for Q4 2013, which excludes tax-affected stock-based compensation expense, tax-affected acquisition-related expenses and tax-affected amortization of acquired intangibles, was $14.3 million, or $0.59 per diluted share. 

OpenTable provides operating results by geography as the Company is at different stages of development in its North America and International operations. 

Q4 2013 North America Results

  • Installed restaurant base as of December 31, 2013, totaled 23,824, a 20% increase over December 31, 2012.
  • Seated diners totaled 39.8 million, a 33% increase over Q4 2012.
  • Revenues totaled $44.7 million, a 22% increase over Q4 2012. 
  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation and acquisition-related expenses) totaled $22.6 million, or 51% of North America revenues, a 19% increase over Q4 2012.

Q4 2013 International Results

  • Installed restaurant base as of December 31, 2013, totaled 7,729, compared to 7,716 as of December 31, 2012.   
  • Seated diners totaled 4.2 million, a 43% increase over Q4 2012. 
  • Revenues totaled $7.6 million, a 21% increase over Q4 2012.
  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA totaled a loss of $0.1 million compared to a loss of $0.1 million in Q4 2012. 

"We're pleased with the accelerated diner growth we delivered in North America and with the strong momentum we saw in our International business in 2013," said Matt Roberts, Chief Executive Officer of OpenTable.  "As we look to the year ahead, we believe the convenience and benefits that our diners and restaurant customers enjoy today are just the beginning of the value we can deliver as a company focused more broadly on the experience of dining out." 

Q4 2013 Consolidated Financial and Operating Summary

  • Installed restaurant base as of December 31, 2013, totaled 31,553.
  • Seated diners totaled 44.0 million, a 34% increase over Q4 2012.
  • Total revenues were $52.3 million in Q4 2013, a 22% increase over Q4 2012 revenues of $43.0 million
    • Reservation revenues were $32.5 million in Q4 2013, up 33% over Q4 2012 revenues of $24.5 million.  Reservation revenues primarily increased as a result of the increase in seated diners. 
    • Subscription revenues were $16.3 million in Q4 2013, up 12% over Q4 2012 revenues of $14.5 million.  Subscription revenues primarily increased as a result of the increase in installed restaurants using our Electronic Reservation Book solution. 
    • Other revenues were $3.5 million in Q4 2013, down 12% over Q4 2012 revenues of $4.0 million.  The decrease is primarily due to the change in the pricing of our promotional products from a flat rate to a pay-for-performance model, which is now classified as reservation revenues. 
  • Total costs and expenses were $39.1 million in Q4 2013, up 23% over Q4 2012 costs and expenses of $31.9 million.  The increase was primarily driven by an increase in online marketing expenses and amortization of intangibles from various acquisitions, combined with an 8% increase in headcount.
  • Total operating income was $13.2 million in Q4 2013 compared to $11.1 million in Q4 2012.  Non-GAAP consolidated operating income, excluding stock-based compensation expense, acquisition-related expenses and amortization of acquired intangibles was $19.0 million in Q4 2013 compared to $16.4 million in Q4 2012. 
  • The Q4 2013 GAAP income tax expense was $2.9 million, or a 22% tax rate.  In Q4 2013, the Company benefitted from certain non-recurring changes in estimates in its tax provision which resulted in a $1.7 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, reduction in Q4 2013 income tax expense.
  • Consolidated net income was $10.3 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, in Q4 2013 compared to $7.5 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, in Q4 2012.  Non-GAAP consolidated net income, which excludes tax-affected stock-based compensation expense, tax-affected acquisition-related expenses and tax-affected amortization of acquired intangibles, was $14.3 million, or $0.59 per diluted share, in Q4 2013 compared to $10.7 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, in Q4 2012.  
  • As of December 31, 2013, OpenTable had cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments of $114.5 million

2013 Consolidated Financial and Operating Summary

  • Total revenues were $190.1 million in 2013, up 18% over 2012 revenues of $161.6 million.
  • Operating income totaled $46.4 million in 2013, or 24% of consolidated revenues, a   27% increase over 2012.  Non-GAAP consolidated operating income, excluding stock-based compensation expense, acquisition-related expenses and amortization of acquired intangibles, was $69.1 million in 2013, or 36% of consolidated revenues, a 13% increase over 2012.
  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA totaled $81.5 million in 2013, or 43% of consolidated revenues, a 16% increase over 2012.

"With Q4 2013 North America seated diner growth rates accelerating for the fourth sequential quarter, it's gratifying to see early returns on the investments we made in 2013," said Duncan Robertson, Chief Financial Officer of OpenTable.  "We believe our continued investments position the Company well for growth in 2014 and beyond."

Quarterly Conference Call

A conference call will be webcast live today at 2 p.m. PT/5 p.m. ET and will be available through February 28, 2014, at http://investors.opentable.com/events.cfm.  This call may contain forward-looking statements and other material information regarding the Company's financial and operating results.

About Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures.  Tables are provided in the press release that reconcile the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).  The reconciliations of the forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures in the tables below include all information reasonably available to the Company at the date of this press release and adjustments that the Company can reasonably predict.  Events that could cause the reconciliation to change include, but are not limited to, acquisitions and divestitures of businesses, goodwill and other asset impairments, and sales of available-for-sale debt securities and other investments. 

The non-GAAP financial measures in this press release include non-GAAP consolidated net income and the related per diluted share amounts, non-GAAP consolidated operating income and non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA.  Non-GAAP financial measure adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation and acquisition-related expenses.

To supplement the Company's consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, management believes that these non-GAAP measures provide useful information about the Company's core operating results and thus are appropriate to enhance the overall understanding of the Company's past financial performance and its prospects for the future. Management believes it is useful to exclude stock-based compensation, acquisition-related expenses and amortization of acquired intangibles because they do not reflect the underlying performance of the Company's business operations. These adjustments to the Company's GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of the Company's underlying operational results and trends and performance.  Management uses these non-GAAP measures to evaluate the Company's financial results.  The presentation of non-GAAP measures is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for or superior to financial results determined in accordance with GAAP.

Background Information

The Company reports consolidated operations in U.S. dollars and operates in two geographic segments: North America and International. The North America segment is comprised of all operations in the United States, Canada and Mexico, and the International segment is comprised of all non-North America operations, which includes operations in Europe and Asia. The Company generates substantially all of its revenues from its restaurant customers. The Company's revenues primarily include monthly subscription fees, a fee for each restaurant guest seated through online reservations, and other revenue. 

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release and its attachments contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 that involve risks and uncertainties.  These forward-looking statements include guidance for Q1 2014 and the full year 2014 and quotations from management in this press release.  The Company's actual results may differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements.  Factors that may contribute to such differences include, among others, the Company's ability to accurately forecast revenues and expenses; worldwide economic conditions; the Company's ability to maintain an adequate rate of growth; the Company's ability to effectively manage its growth; the Company's ability to attract new restaurant customers; the Company's ability to increase the number of visitors to its websites and mobile applications and convert those visitors into diners; the Company's ability to retain existing restaurant customers and diners or encourage repeat reservations; the effects of increased competition; the Company's ability to successfully enter new markets and manage its international expansion; the impact of the fluctuations in currency exchange rates; the Company's ability to successfully manage any acquisitions of businesses, solutions or technologies; interruptions in service and any related impact on the Company's reputation; costs associated with defending intellectual property infringement and other claims; and the impact of natural catastrophic events.  More information about potential factors that could affect the Company's business and financial results is contained in the Company's annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012 and the Company's other filings with the SEC.  The Company does not intend, and undertakes no duty, to update this information to reflect future events or circumstances.
