Rainmaker Reports Second Quarter 2011 Financial Results

11 Aug, 2011, 16:05 ET from Rainmaker Systems, Inc.

CAMPBELL, Calif., Aug. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Rainmaker Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: RMKR), a leading global provider of B2B e-commerce solutions that drive online sales and renewal for products, subscriptions and training for clients and their channel partners, today reported financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2011.

Net revenue in the second quarter of 2011 was $9.1 million, a 3% sequential increase from net revenue in the preceding quarter of $8.8 million. Second quarter 2011 net revenue grew 10% year-over-year compared to adjusted net revenue of $8.3 million in the second quarter of 2010, which excludes revenue from discontinued client programs. See Exhibit A for a reconciliation of GAAP net revenue to adjusted net revenue.

Recent Business Highlights

  • Signed material agreement with global software client for B2B global sales
  • Signed new client for B2B e-commerce storefront for software downloads
  • Signed multiple additional new clients
  • Appointed former PayPal CTO, Chuck Geiger, to Board of Directors
  • Completed a $4 million registered direct common stock offering
  • Cash usage in the second quarter of 2011 declined 62% sequentially

Rainmaker CEO Michael Silton commented, "We are making substantial progress on many fronts. We reduced our cash usage by 62% in the second quarter and completed a $4 million common stock offering. Our cash balance now stands at approximately $12 million and our cash burn in the second quarter was just over $1 million. Based on our sales outlook, we believe we can achieve a return to positive cash flow within our current resources. We signed significant new business during the quarter and recently signed a material new agreement with a global software client and a new B2B e-commerce storefront. Our sales pipeline continues to grow and we remain focused on signing additional e-commerce clients that will contribute to accelerated revenue growth and margin improvement in 2012."

Second quarter 2011 adjusted EBITDA, which excludes non-cash stock compensation expense, was negative $1.8 million, compared to negative $1.3 million in the preceding quarter. See Exhibit B for a reconciliation of GAAP net loss to EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA.

Gross margin in the second quarter of 2011 was 33%, compared to 35% in the preceding quarter.

Net loss for the second quarter of 2011 was $3.3 million, or a loss of $0.16 per share, compared to a net loss for the preceding quarter of $3.1 million, or a loss of $0.15 per share.

Second quarter 2011 non-GAAP net loss, which excludes stock-based compensation expense of $433,000, amortization of intangible assets from acquisitions of $93,000 and a $25,000 favorable change in fair value of warrant liability, was $2.8 million, or a loss of $0.13 per share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss for the preceding quarter of $2.3 million, or a loss of $0.11 per share, which excludes stock-based compensation expense of $625,000, amortization of intangible assets from acquisitions of $117,000, charges relating to facility closures of $99,000 and a $70,000 gain on fair value re-measurement. See Exhibit C for a reconciliation of GAAP net loss to non-GAAP net loss.

Total shares outstanding at June 30, 2011 were approximately 26.7 million common shares, which include approximately 1.9 million unvested restricted shares. In addition, Rainmaker had 700,000 unexercised options outstanding with a weighted average exercise price of approximately $1.98 per share and 1.6 million unexercised warrants outstanding with a weighted average exercise price of approximately $1.38.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Rainmaker Systems' management evaluates and makes operating decisions using various performance measures. In addition to GAAP results, Rainmaker also considers adjusted net revenue, non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA, which excludes non-cash stock compensation expense from EBITDA. These non-GAAP measures are derived from the revenue generated by Rainmaker's business and the costs directly related to the generation of that revenue, such as costs of services, sales and marketing expenses, technology expenses and general and administrative expenses, that management considers in evaluating the Company's operating performance. These non-GAAP measures exclude certain revenues and expenses that management does not consider to be related to the Company's core operating performance.

Adjusted net revenue was $9.1 million for the second quarter of 2011, compared to $8.8 million in the preceding quarter and $8.3 million in the second quarter of 2010, which excludes revenue from discontinued client programs. See Exhibit A for a reconciliation of GAAP net revenue to adjusted net revenue.

EBITDA was negative $2.2 million for the second quarter of 2011. EBITDA consists of net loss excluding interest and other expense, income taxes, depreciation & amortization and certain other non-cash items. Provision for income taxes was $68,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2011. Non-cash charges for depreciation of property and equipment were $863,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2011. Non-cash charges for amortization of acquisition related intangibles were $93,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2011. Interest and other expense was $51,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2011. The change in fair value of warrant liability was $25,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and related to a reduction in the fair value of the common stock warrant liability from the recent equity financing.  Adjusted EBITDA was negative $1.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and adds back to EBITDA non-cash stock based compensation expense of $433,000 incurred in the second quarter of 2011. See Exhibit B for a reconciliation of GAAP net loss to EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA.

Non-GAAP net loss was $2.8 million for the second quarter of 2011 and consists of net loss excluding stock based compensation expense amortization of purchased intangible assets and change in fair value of warrant liability. Stock based compensation expense was $433,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and represents the current quarter recognition of compensation expense related to stock options and restricted stock awards granted prior to and during the quarter. Amortization of intangible assets was $93,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2011.  The change in fair value of warrant liability was $25,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and related to a reduction in the fair value of the common stock warrant liability from the recent equity financing.  See Exhibit C for a reconciliation of GAAP net loss to non-GAAP net loss.

Adjusted net revenue, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss per share, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are supplemental measures of Rainmaker's performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. Moreover, they should not be considered as an alternative to any performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, or as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities or as a measure of liquidity. Rainmaker presents these non-GAAP measures because management considers them to be important supplemental measures of Rainmaker's operating performance and profitability trends, and because management believes they give investors useful information on period-to-period performance as evaluated by management. Rainmaker believes that the use of these non-GAAP measures provides consistency and comparability with Rainmaker's past financial reports and also facilitates comparisons with other companies in Rainmaker's industry, a number of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results. Management has used these non-GAAP measures when evaluating operating performance because management believes that the inclusion or exclusion of the items described above provides an additional measure of the Company's core operating results and facilitates comparisons of the Company's core operating performance against prior periods and the Company's business model objectives. Rainmaker has chosen to provide this information to investors to enable them to perform additional analysis of past, present and future operating performance and as a supplemental means to evaluation of the Company's ongoing core operations.

(1)    To supplement our financial results presented on a GAAP basis, we use non-GAAP net loss, which excludes certain business combination accounting entries and expenses related to acquisitions as well as other expenses including stock-based compensation and non-recurring items. As we have completed several acquisitions since 2005, we believe non-GAAP net loss provides useful information to investors regarding the underlying business trends and performance of the Company's ongoing operations and is useful for period over period comparisons of such operations. Non-GAAP net loss is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP net loss, and should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

(2)    We estimate the fair value of share based payment awards on the date of grant using an option-pricing model for option grants and our closing share price as reported on NASDAQ for restricted share grants. The value of the portion of the award that is ultimately expected to vest is recognized as expense over the requisite service periods. Stock-based compensation expenses will recur in future periods.

(3)    During the first quarter of 2010, we received a one-time buyout of a client contract in the amount of $4.6 million, accounted for as revenue. This amount represented approximately six months of revenue under that contract, which the Company would have expected to earn during the period from the termination of the contract at the end of February 2010 through the end of the minimum term of the contract. In the second quarter of 2010, we recognized as revenue a one-time adjustment for non-continued programs in the amount of $809,000.

(4)    We have excluded the effect of amortization of intangibles from our non-GAAP net loss. We believe this helps investors understand a significant reason why our GAAP operating expenses increase following acquisitions. Investors should note that the use of intangible assets contributed to revenue earned during the period and will contribute to future revenue generation and should also note that these amortization expenses are recurring.

(5)    In the quarter ended March 31, 2011, we recorded a gain on fair value re-measurement of $70,000 related to a reduction in the accrued liability for the potential earnout from the acquisition of Optima.  In the quarter ended June 30, 2011, we recorded a gain in fair value of the warrant liability of $25,000 related to a reduction in the common stock warrant liability from our recent equity financing.

(6)    We have excluded the effect of a non-cash charge recognized in the first quarter of 2010 to write-down the carrying value of our minority equity investment of $740,000.

(7)    In the quarter ended September 30, 2010, we decided to close our Montreal facility and took a charge related to the present value of the remaining lease payments net of the potential sublease proceeds. In the quarter ended March 31, 2011, we recorded a charge of $99,000, as we revised the estimated value of the remaining lease payments net of the potential sublease proceeds.
