New Global Offering Drives Record Quarterly Revenue and 29% Year-Over-Year Growth

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- InnerWorkings, Inc. (NASDAQ: INWK), a leading global marketing supply chain company, today reported results for the three months ended June 30, 2012.

Quarterly Highlights:

  • Record revenue of $201.4 million, an increase of 29% compared to $155.6 million in the second quarter of 2011. Organic revenue growth in the quarter was 19%.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA was $11.9 million, an increase of 22% compared to $9.7 million in the year-earlier period. Please refer to the non-GAAP reconciliation table below for more information.
  • Net income was $4.5 million, an increase of 21% compared to $3.7 million in the year-earlier period. Excluding proceeds from the sale of Echo Global Logistics stock in both periods, earnings per diluted share in the second quarter of 2012 were $0.09 compared to $0.06 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2011. Please refer to the non-GAAP reconciliation table below for more information.
  • Year-over-year enterprise revenue growth of 30% and middle market revenue growth of 27%. Organic revenue from new enterprise accounts was a record $25.4 million in the second quarter.

"We achieved record revenue results for the seventh consecutive quarter, driven by the ramp from recent large enterprise wins and our success at expanding client relationships to new geographies," said Eric D. Belcher, chief executive officer of InnerWorkings. "Further, we added talented new leaders in Brazil and EMEA and we continued to rapidly build out our Inside Sales division to accelerate the strong growth opportunities in front of us."

Additional second quarter 2012 financial and operational highlights include the following:

  • 75% of the Company's revenue was generated from sales to enterprise clients, with the remaining 25% derived from sales to middle market clients.
  • As of June 30, 2012, the Company had an outstanding balance of $73.0 million on its $150 million bank credit facility and retained cash and short-term investments of $12.8 million.

"The Company's financial position is strong and continues to be supported by robust organic revenue growth," said Joseph M. Busky, chief financial officer of InnerWorkings. "Despite the investments we are making to broaden the Company's platform and support large new clients, both domestically and internationally, we remain well positioned to generate additional leverage as the year progresses."

Outlook

The Company is maintaining its previously stated 2012 guidance of $780 million to $810 million in revenue and $0.42 to $0.45 in earnings per share.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure

This press release includes the following financial measures defined as "non-GAAP financial measures" by the Securities and Exchange Commission:

  • Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, which represents income from operations with the addition of depreciation and amortization and stock-based compensation expense, less any change in the fair value of contingent consideration liabilities;
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted Operating Cash Flow, which represents net cash provided by (used in) operating activities, excluding the adjustment for cash tax benefits arising from option exercises; and
  • Non-GAAP Earnings per Diluted Share, which represents earnings per diluted share, excluding the gain from the sale of Echo Global Logistics stock.

We believe that Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA , Non-GAAP Adjusted Operating Cash Flow and Non-GAAP Earnings per Diluted Share provide useful information to investors because they provide information about the estimated financial performance of the Company's ongoing business. Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA , Non-GAAP Adjusted Operating Cash Flow and Non-GAAP Earnings per Diluted Share are used by management in its financial and operational decision-making and evaluation of overall operating performance. Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA , Non-GAAP Adjusted Operating Cash Flow and Non-GAAP Earnings per Diluted Share may be different from similar measures used by other companies. The presentation of this financial information, which is not prepared under any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles, is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. For reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the nearest comparable GAAP measures, see "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA , Non-GAAP Adjusted Operating Cash Flow and Non-GAAP Earnings per Diluted Share" included in this release.
