"We had a very strong first quarter, with consistent growth across all regions worldwide," said Founder and CEO Jon Oringer. "Our core markets and product offerings performed very well, while more recently introduced revenue streams from Enterprise sales and video footage licensing doubled as compared to the prior year.  That strong growth, combined with our recent acquisition of digital asset management provider WebDAM, sets up a terrific foundation for us to build on throughout 2014."

Free cash flow for the first quarter of 2014 was $4.7 million as compared to $12.7 million in the first quarter of 2013.  Free cash flow is defined as cash provided by/(used in) operating activities adjusted for capital expenditures and interest income/(expense).

Financial Outlook

The Company's current financial and operating expectations for the second quarter of 2014 and updated expectations for full year 2014 are as follows:

Second Quarter 2014

  • Revenue of $76 - $78 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $14 - $15 million
  • Non-cash equity-based compensation expense of approximately $6 million
  • An effective tax rate of approximately 40%
  • Capital expenditures of approximately $3 million

Full Year 2014

  • Revenue of $315 - $320 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA of  $66 - $68 million; this expectation represents an increase of $1 million as compared to the company's prior expectations of $68 - $70 million, offset by investment in WebDAM operations that will reduce EBITDA by $3 million
  • Non-cash equity-based compensation expense of approximately $22 million
  • An effective tax rate of approximately 40%
  • Capital expenditures of approximately $20 million, including the approximately $7.6 million of capital expenditures related to the buildout of the company's new headquarters

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Shutterstock considers adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income, and free cash flow to be important financial indicators of the Company's operational strength and the performance of its business. Shutterstock defines adjusted EBITDA as net income adjusted for interest income/(expense), income taxes, depreciation, amortization and non-cash equity-based compensation; non-GAAP net income as net income excluding the after tax impact of non-cash equity-based compensation; and free cash flow as cash provided by/(used in) operating activities adjusted for capital expenditures and interest income/(expense). These figures are non-GAAP financial measures and should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), and should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. In addition, adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income, and free cash flow should not be construed as indicators of our operating performance, liquidity or cash flows generated by operating, investing and financing activities, as there may be significant factors or trends that they fail to address. We caution investors that non-GAAP financial information, by its nature, departs from traditional accounting conventions; accordingly, its use can make it difficult to compare our current results with our results from other reporting periods and with the results of other companies.

A reconciliation of the differences between adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income, 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 Statements of Cash Flows included below.
