InnerWorkings Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2012 Results and 2013 Guidance

Announces record quarterly revenue, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted operating cash flow; forecasts 2013 organic revenue growth of 16 to 20 percent and EPS growth of 39 to 49 percent

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- InnerWorkings, Inc. (NASDAQ: INWK), a leading global marketing supply chain company, today reported results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2012.

Quarterly Highlights:

  • Record revenue of $208.0 million, an increase of 19% compared to revenue of $175.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Growth was driven by 16% organic growth in this quarter versus the fourth quarter of 2011.
  • Record adjusted cash flow generated from operations of $21.9 million, an increase of 94% compared to $11.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Please refer to the non-GAAP reconciliation table below for more information.
  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share increased by 25% to $0.15 per diluted share in the fourth quarter, compared to $0.12 per adjusted diluted share in the year-earlier period. Please refer to the non-GAAP reconciliation table below for more information.
  • Record adjusted EBITDA of $12.5 million, compared to $11.2 million in the year-earlier period. Please refer to the non-GAAP reconciliation table below for more information.

Fiscal Year Highlights:

  • Record revenue for fiscal year 2012 of $797.7 million, an increase of 26% compared to revenue of $633.8 million in fiscal year 2011. Growth was driven by 19% organic growth year-over-year.
  • Adjusted cash flow generated from operations of $20.7 million in 2012, compared to $29.0 million in fiscal year 2011. Please refer to the non-GAAP reconciliation table below for more information.
  • Full year adjusted diluted earnings per share increased by 17% to $0.41 in 2012 compared to $0.35 in 2011. Please refer to the non-GAAP reconciliation table below for more information.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $45.3 million, an increase of 20% compared to $37.6 million in fiscal year 2011. Please refer to the non-GAAP reconciliation table below for more information.
  • Full year 2012 enterprise account growth was 30% driven by the successful ramp-up of several new large enterprise client contracts and full year middle market account growth was 15% driven primarily by strong inside sales results.

“2012 was a record year for InnerWorkings, driven by over $100 million of organic revenue from new enterprise clients,” said Eric D. Belcher, Chief Executive Officer of InnerWorkings. “We invested wisely in our global platform last year, built up our inside sales business, and added the necessary leadership across our international organization to drive our future growth. We enter this year with a strong sense of confidence in our ability to win new large contracts that will again drive strong organic growth in 2013 and beyond.”

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

  • 80% of the Company’s revenue was generated from domestic sales, while 20% was derived from international sales activity. Enterprise clients accounted for 75% of sales with middle market clients accounting for 25% of sales.
  • The Company had a net benefit on the change in fair value of contingent consideration of $3.5 million related to acquisitions in Europe, which was recorded in the fourth quarter of 2012. All InnerWorkings acquisitions are structured under a contingent consideration arrangement, pursuant to which earn-out payments will not be made unless certain performance measures are met. Due to the softness in Europe, some of the applicable performance measures were not met in the fourth quarter of 2012, and as a result, the Company recorded a net benefit to release a portion of its contingent consideration obligations. Please refer to the non-GAAP reconciliation table below for more information.
  • The Company also recorded an incremental non-cash stock-based compensation expense of $2.0 million due to a better than forecasted employee retention rate than was assumed at the date of equity grant.
  • Net debt declined by 26% sequentially and stood at $47.8 million at the end of the fourth quarter. The debt-to-leverage ratio was at a four year low of 1.4 times trailing twelve month adjusted EBITDA at the end of the fourth quarter.

“We were not only able to maintain our growth and execute against our strategy by investing in the business over the past year, but we also made significant contributions to strengthen our balance sheet,” said Joseph M. Busky, Chief Financial Officer. “We look forward to seeing our strategic 2012 investments in inside sales, Brazil and China turn profitable in 2013.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

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, stock-based compensation expense, any change in the fair value of contingent consideration liabilities, and excluding legal settlement expense;
  • 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 the pre-payment of VAT assessments in the United Kingdom; and
  • Non-GAAP Earnings per Diluted Share, which represents earnings per diluted share, excluding legal settlement expense.

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.
