NEW YORK, Aug. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Shutterstock, Inc. (SSTK) (the "Company"), a leading global technology company offering high-quality assets, tools and services through its creative platform, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Commenting on the Company's performance, founder and CEO Jon Oringer said "We continued to see strong results as we closed out the first half of the year, including an acceleration of our organic revenue growth and improvements in cost management as compared to both the prior year and the first quarter of this year. The investments we have made in our technology and product offerings over the past several years are yielding promising operational and financial returns. We are especially pleased to see a return to double-digit growth in our e-commerce sales channel with the second quarter delivering the strongest growth in that channel since the fourth quarter of 2015. We are focused on continuing to execute on our key strategic initiatives and to improve efficiency of operating costs, which we expect will result in sustained growth and improved profitability.

"This quarter we also celebrated the fifteenth anniversary of the Company. Since the launch of Shutterstock, more than 450,000 photographers, artists and designers have become contributors to our platform, and those contributors have earned nearly $650 million from their content being licensed. We continue to work to drive sustained customer and contributor engagement by focusing on enhancing and improving our technologies and products to put the right content and workflow tools in the hands of our customers today and in the future."

Highlights of Second Quarter 2018 compared to Second Quarter 2017:

Key Operating Metrics

  • Paid downloads increased 5.9% to 45.2 million.
  • Revenue per download increased 11.8% to $3.41.
  • Image collection expanded 41.0% to 204.2 million images.
  • Video collection expanded 43.9% to 10.9 million clips.

Financial Highlights

  • Revenue increased 16.9% to $156.6 million. Excluding the revenue from Webdam (which was divested in the first quarter of 2018), revenue increased 20.2%.
  • Income from operations increased 71.2% to $5.6 million.
  • Net loss on a reported basis was $0.3 million, which includes a charge of $4.8 million relating to the impairment of our long-term investment in SilverHub Media ("SHM").
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 31.1% to $24.0 million.
  • Diluted EPS was a loss of $0.01 per share, which includes a loss of $0.14 per diluted share relating to the impairment of our long-term investment in SHM.

SECOND QUARTER RESULTS

Revenue

Revenue of $156.6 million for the second quarter of 2018 increased $22.6 million, or 16.9%, as compared to the second quarter of 2017, driven by the expansion of our product offerings to better meet the needs of our e-commerce customer base and increased activity by our enterprise customers. These factors also drove an 11.8% increase in revenue per download. Excluding the impact of foreign currency movements, revenue growth on a constant currency basis was approximately 14.4% in the second quarter of 2018, as compared to the second quarter of 2017. Excluding the impact from Webdam, which we sold in the first quarter of 2018, revenue growth was approximately 20.2% in the second quarter of 2018, as compared to the second quarter of 2017.

Revenue generated through our e-commerce platform increased approximately 11.6% as compared to the second quarter of 2017, to $91.7 million, representing 58.6% of total revenue in the second quarter of 2018. Revenue from enterprise customers increased approximately 34.9% as compared to 2017, to $64.9 million, representing 41.4% of total revenue in the second quarter of 2018.

Income from Operations

Income from operations of $5.6 million for the second quarter of 2018 increased $2.3 million, or 71%, as compared to the second quarter of 2017. Growth in income from operations was driven primarily by growth in revenues, partially offset by growth in operating expenses, which increased $20.2 million, or 15% as compared to the second quarter of 2017. Expense growth was primarily due to increased expenditures for royalties, compensation, sales and marketing and costs associated with our product development enhancements, including depreciation.

Net Loss

Net loss was $0.3 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2018 as compared with net income of $3.1 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2017. This loss is due primarily to a loss of approximately $4.8 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, net of tax, related to the impairment of our long-term investment in SHM during the quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA of $24.0 million for the second quarter of 2018 increased $5.7 million, or 31%, as compared to the second quarter of 2017 driven primarily by strong revenue growth and cost management improvements. We define adjusted EBITDA as net income adjusted for foreign currency transaction gains and losses, expenses related to long-term incentives and contingent consideration related to acquisitions, impairment charges related to our long-term investment in SHM, interest income and expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, non-cash equity-based compensation, and the gain on Sale of Webdam.

Adjusted Net Income

Adjusted net income was $10.7 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2018 as compared to $8.3 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2017. We define adjusted net income as net income excluding the impact of one-time tax charges related to the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act ("TCJA"), non-cash equity-based compensation, amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, expenses related to long-term incentives and contingent consideration related to acquisitions, charges related to the impairment of our long-term investment in SHM, the gain on Sale of Webdam, and the estimated tax impact of such adjustments.

LIQUIDITY

Our cash and cash equivalents increased by $36.4 million to $289.8 million at June 30, 2018, as compared with $253.4 million at December 31, 2017. This increase reflects approximately $38.0 million of net cash generated by our operations and approximately $42.4 million of net proceeds to date from the Sale of Webdam, which were partially offset by approximately $23.1 million of capital expenditures and our $15.0 million long-term investment in ZCool Network Technology Limited, our exclusive distributor of creative content in China. We had a net tax refund of $0.1 million in the six months ended June 30, 2018, compared to cash taxes paid of $3.3 million in the 2017 period.

Free cash flow was $8.2 million in the second quarter of 2018, a decrease of $1.9 million from the second quarter of 2017. This change was primarily driven by decreased cash from operations, which was partially offset by decreases in capital expenditures and cash used to acquire content. Free cash flow is defined as cash provided by operating activities adjusted for capital expenditures and content acquisition.

STOCK REPURCHASE PROGRAM

During the second quarter of 2018, we did not repurchase shares of our stock pursuant to our existing stock repurchase program. From the inception of this program through June 30, 2018, we have repurchased 2.6 million shares of our stock for a total of $100.0 million under the stock repurchase program at an average per-share price of $39.09. As of June 30, 2018, there remains $100 million available for purchases under our share repurchase program.

The stock repurchase program, which commenced in November 2015, authorizes the Company to purchase shares from time to time through open market purchases or privately negotiated transactions at prevailing prices as permitted by securities laws and other legal requirements. The timing and amount of any future share repurchases will be determined by our management based on its evaluation of market conditions and other factors. The repurchase program may be modified, suspended or discontinued at any time.

ANNOUNCEMENT OF SPECIAL DIVIDEND

Today, the Board of Directors declared a special cash dividend of $3.00 per share. Commenting on the announcement, COO and CFO Steven Berns said, "We are pleased to announce that our Board of Directors has declared a special one-time cash dividend in the amount of $3.00 per share. Our liquidity strategy has been to maintain a strong target cash position that enables us to fund operations while also providing us with the flexibility to consider a variety of operational and strategic growth opportunities, to maximize stockholder returns. As a result of our strong operating cash flows, proceeds from the Sale of Webdam, and other factors favorably impacting our cash position, our Board of Directors believes that declaring this special dividend is consistent with our strategy of maximizing stockholder returns while allowing us to maintain a capital structure to fund our operations and growth initiatives. We will continue to evaluate the appropriate use of cash generated in our business to maximize returns for stockholders."

The dividend will be payable on August 29, 2018, to stockholders of record at the close of business on August 15, 2018. The aggregate payment to be made in connection with this dividend will be approximately $105.0 million.

FINANCIAL OUTLOOK

The Company's current expectations for the full year 2018, excluding the contribution of Webdam, remain unchanged as follows:

  • Revenue of $625 - $635 million, representing growth of approximately 15% - 17%.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $105 - $110 million, representing growth of approximately 19% - 25%.
  • Income from Operations of $30 - $35 million.
  • Non-cash equity-based compensation expense of approximately $28 million.
  • Capital expenditures, including capitalized labor, of approximately $48 million.
  • Effective tax rate in mid-20's%.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

In addition to reporting results in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), Shutterstock also refers to adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, revenue growth on a constant currency basis, revenue excluding the impact of Webdam, adjusted EBITDA margin and free cash flow. Shutterstock defines adjusted EBITDA as net income adjusted for foreign currency transaction gains and losses, expenses related to long-term incentives and contingent consideration related to acquisitions, interest income and expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, disposals, non-cash equity-based compensation, impairment charges related to long-term investments and the gain on the Sale of Webdam; adjusted net income as net income excluding the impact of one-time tax charges related to the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act ("TCJA"), the impact of non-cash equity-based compensation, the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, impairment charges related to long-term investments, the gain on the Sale of Webdam and expenses related to long-term incentives and contingent consideration related to acquisitions and the estimated tax impact of such adjustments; revenue growth on a constant currency basis (expressed as a percentage) as the increase in current period revenues over prior period revenues, utilizing fixed exchange rates for translating foreign currency revenues for both periods; revenue excluding the impact of Webdam as total Company revenue for each period presented, less the amount of revenue generated by the Webdam business during that period; adjusted EBITDA margin (expressed as a percentage) as the ratio of adjusted EBITDA to revenue; and free cash flow as cash provided by/(used in) operating activities adjusted for capital expenditures and content acquisition. These figures have not been calculated in accordance with GAAP and should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. We caution investors that non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and are not necessarily comparable to similarly-titled measures presented by other companies.

Management believes that adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, revenue excluding the impact of Webdam, revenue growth on a constant currency basis and adjusted EBITDA margin are useful to investors to provide them with disclosures of Shutterstock's operating results on the same basis as that used by management. Additionally, management believes that adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income provide useful information to investors about the performance of the Company's overall business because such measures eliminate the effects of unusual or other infrequent charges that are not directly attributable to Shutterstock's underlying operating performance; with respect to revenue growth on a constant currency basis, this provides useful information to investors by eliminating the effect of foreign currency fluctuations that are not directly attributable to Shutterstock's business; and with respect to revenue excluding the impact of Webdam, provides useful information to investors by eliminating the impact of a historical revenue source that is not part of our current business. Additionally, management believes that providing these non-GAAP financial measures enhances the comparability for investors in assessing Shutterstock's financial reporting. Management believes that free cash flow is useful for investors because it provides them with an important perspective on the cash available for strategic measures, after making necessary capital investments in property and equipment to support the Company's ongoing business operations, and provides them with the same measures that management uses as the basis for making resource allocation decisions.

Shutterstock's management also uses the non-GAAP financial measures adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, revenue excluding the impact of Webdam, revenue growth on a constant currency basis, adjusted EBITDA margin and free cash flow, in conjunction with GAAP financial measures, as an integral part of managing the business and to: (i) monitor and evaluate the performance of Shutterstock's business operations, financial performance and overall liquidity; (ii) facilitate management's internal comparisons of the historical operating performance of its business operations; (iii) facilitate management's external comparisons of the results of its overall business to the historical operating performance of other companies that may have different capital structures and debt levels; (iv) review and assess the operating performance of Shutterstock's management team and, together with other operational objectives, as a measure in evaluating employee compensation and bonuses; (v) analyze and evaluate financial and strategic planning decisions regarding future operating investments; and (vi) plan for and prepare future annual operating budgets and determine appropriate levels of operating investments.

A reconciliation of the differences between adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, revenue excluding the impact of Webdam and free cash flow, and the most comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, is presented under the heading "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Information to GAAP" immediately following the Consolidated Balance Sheets. We do not provide a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA guidance to net income guidance, as the impact of net non-operating foreign currency exchange gains or losses which are excluded from adjusted EBITDA is inherently uncertain and difficult to estimate and is unavailable without unreasonable efforts. In addition, we believe such reconciliations would imply a degree of precision that would be confusing or misleading to investors.

    The Legal Way Canadian Marijuana Stocks Are Tricking Investors

    Following nine decades of prohibition, recreational marijuana is officially legal in Canada, albeit the extent of who can buy, whether the plant can be homegrown, and where product can be purchased really depends on the province. The important fact here is that legalization is expected to usher in billions of dollars of added annual revenue to the industry. This expectation of a surge in sales -- Wall Street is looking for approximately $5 billion in added annual revenue once the industry is up to speed -- is what's behind the more than two-year rally in marijuana stocks.

    Is Tilray a Better Marijuana Stock to Buy Than Aurora Cannabis?

    Marijuana users are cheering the legalization of marijuana for recreational use in Canada, but it's not just pot advocates who are excited. Investors are also upbeat because the recreational market for marijuana represents a massive opportunity for sales growth for leading Canadian cannabis companies, including Tilray Inc. (NASDAQ: TLRY) and Aurora Cannabis (NASDAQOTH: ACBFF). Medical marijuana has been legal in Canada for years, and while medical marijuana sales total in the hundreds of millions of dollars annually, the potential market opportunity associated with recreational use is significantly bigger.

    United Airlines Reports Another Quarter of Strong Earnings -- for United

    Over the past year or so, I've been rather skeptical about United Continental's (NYSE: UAL) plan to boost its earnings by accelerating its growth rate, particularly in smaller cities. Indeed, United Airlines released another strong earnings report on Tuesday afternoon and raised its full-year guidance for the third consecutive quarter. It now expects to post full-year adjusted earnings per share of $8.00 to $8.75 -- up from an initial guidance range of $6.50 to $8.50 -- even though it is on track to spend an extra $700 million on fuel compared to its original forecast.

    The world's most popular mobile operating system may soon look very different after Google announced that smartphone manufacturers will no longer have free access to popular apps on Android. The licensing fee charge for the Play Store and other Google apps follows a $5 billion fine handed to the technology giant by the European Commission for antitrust violations earlier this year. Until now, Android phones and tablets have all come pre-installed with Google's search engine and Chrome browser, a move that European lawmakers deemed illegal.

    Caterpillar's stock tumbles to pace Dow losers after disappointing results from industrial sector peers

    Shares of Caterpillar Inc. (cat) tumbled 3.9% in afternoon trade, enough to pace the 28 of 30 Dow Jones Industrial Average (djia) components that were declining, after a number of disappointing earnings reports from industrial-sector peers. The SPDR Industrial Select Sector ETF (xli) of which Caterpillar is a component, slumped 1.9% to a 3 1/2-month low, with 68 of 70 equity components losing ground. The biggest loser in the ETF were shares of United Rentals Inc. (uri) which fell 11.7% to a 13-month low after the company beat earnings and revenue expectations, but UBS cut its price target to $180 from $196 citing disappointing rates.

Mohammed Bin Salman, the prince now known by the global shorthand of MBS, was utterly unknown when his father ascended to the Saudi throne in January 2015. It was a routine transfer of power from one elderly royal to another, until King Salman delegated a massive share of his authority to his son.

    Ford's giving a few more people a chance to buy its $500K GT supercar

    Ford Motor Co. is planning to make a few more of its ultra-expensive GT supercars. Citing "unprecedented" demand, the automaker (NYSE: F) on Thursday said it's increasing the production of the Ford GT from an initial run of 1,000 cars to 1,350 cars. The car doesn't come without its problems: Last week, Ford said it's recalling about 200 of the cars it's made so far because there's a risk they might catch on fire.
