Reis, Inc. Announces Fourth Quarter and Year End 2013 Results

NEW YORK, March 6, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reis, Inc. (Nasdaq:REIS) ("Reis" or the "Company"), a leading provider of commercial real estate market information and analytical tools, announced the following financial results.

Subscription revenue was $9,208,239 for the three months ended December 31, 2013, as compared to $8,581,486 for the three months ended December 31, 2012, a 7.3% organic growth rate. Our fourth quarter growth is the 15th consecutive quarterly increase in revenue over the prior year's corresponding quarter. On a pro forma basis (excluding incremental revenue from a custom project in 2012), revenue grew 12.9% in the fourth quarter of 2013 over 2012.

For the year ended December 31, 2013, subscription revenue was $34,721,088, as compared to $31,228,644 for the year ended December 31, 2012, an 11.2% organic growth rate. On a pro forma basis (excluding incremental revenue from a custom project in 2012), annual revenue grew 13.2% year over year. Our 2013 annual revenue marks the fourth consecutive year of revenue growth, the third consecutive year of double digit annual revenue growth and growth in 11 of the last 12 years dating back to the launch of our online services in 2001.

Income from continuing operations was $16,304,471, or $1.49 per basic share and $1.42 per diluted share, for the three months ended December 31, 2013. For the three months ended December 31, 2012, the Company had income from continuing operations of $6,519,082, or $0.61 per basic share and $0.58 per diluted share. For the year ended December 31, 2013, income from continuing operations was $17,933,431, or $1.65 per basic share and $1.57 per diluted share. Income from continuing operations was $8,013,330 for the year ended December 31, 2012, or $0.75 per basic share and $0.73 per diluted share.

On a consolidated basis, the Company had net income of $16,213,851, or $1.49 per basic share and $1.41 per diluted share, for the three months ended December 31, 2013. For the three months ended December 31, 2012, the Company had net income of $7,066,535, or $0.66 per basic share and $0.63 per diluted share. For the year ended December 31, 2013, the Company had net income of $17,596,942 or $1.62 per basic share and $1.54 per diluted share. The Company had a net loss of $(4,283,582) for the year ended December 31, 2012, or $(0.40) per basic share and $(0.39) per diluted share.

Income from continuing operations and net income were positively impacted in both the fourth quarter and annual 2013 periods by a $15.2 million reduction in the valuation allowance related to the Company's deferred tax assets. The consolidated net loss for the year ended December 31, 2012 was negatively impacted by a net $12,296,912 loss from discontinued operations resulting from the litigation related to the Company's former Gold Peak condominium development project, offset by a net tax benefit of $5,427,000, primarily from the reduction in the valuation allowance against a portion of the Company's deferred tax assets.

Reis's CEO, Lloyd Lynford, stated, "Reis's record financial performance during 2013 continues a long-standing trend: consistent innovation and the disciplined introduction of quality products that keeps our renewal rate above 90% while strengthening our competitive position in acquiring new clients. Constant enhancements to our products, technology platform and our expanding sales force, continue to deliver double-digit revenue and EBITDA growth while providing superior decision support to our subscribers. The upcoming launch of our senior housing coverage in May, and consistent enhancement to our Mobiuss portfolio analytics product represent promising developments for 2014 with respect to sustaining our financial trajectory."

Reis Services EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) was $3,788,000 during the fourth quarter of 2013, an increase of $245,000, or 6.9%, compared to $3,543,000 during the fourth quarter 2012. The EBITDA margins were 41.1% and 41.3% for the three months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively. For the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, Reis Services EBITDA was $14,307,000 and $12,762,000, respectively, representing growth of $1,545,000, or 12.1%. The EBITDA margins were 41.2% and 40.9% for the respective annual periods. On a pro forma basis, EBITDA grew 21.6% in the fourth quarter of 2013 over 2012 and 17.3% year over year.

Management uses metrics, such as EBITDA, to monitor and assess the performance of its operating business, Reis Services, and believes it is helpful to investors in understanding the Reis Services business (see Reconciliations of Income from Continuing Operations to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA below for the Reis Services segment and on a consolidated basis). Also, a description of the pro forma presentation of revenue and EBITDA is included below.

Critical Metrics: Revenue; Deferred Revenue; Aggregate Revenue Under Contract; and EBITDA

Reis Services's revenue increased by approximately $628,000, or 7.3%, from the fourth quarter of 2012 to the fourth quarter of 2013 and $3,492,000, or 11.2%, for the year ended December 31, 2013 over the comparable 2012 annual period. The revenue increase over the corresponding prior quarterly period is the 15th consecutive quarterly increase in revenue over the prior year's quarter. In addition, revenue increased by approximately $429,000, or 4.9%, from the third quarter of 2013 to the fourth quarter of 2013. In general, these revenue increases reflect: (1) additional new Reis SE business; (2) revenue growth from ReisReports; and (3) revenue from Mobiuss in the 2013 periods. The Company's revenue growth reflects not just a single strong revenue quarter, but also the momentum created by sustained contract growth during 2012 and throughout 2013. In 2013, the Company had its best booking year and the fourth quarter was the best booking quarter in Reis's history. The Company's overall renewal rate remained at 91% for the trailing twelve months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 (for institutional subscribers, the renewal rates were 93% both at December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively). Total Reis SE subscribers increased to 994 at December 31, 2013 from 844 subscribers at December 31, 2012.

As we disclosed in prior filings including the Company's 2012 Annual Report filed on Form 10-K and its quarterly reports filed during 2013, revenue in the fourth quarter and annual 2012 periods included incremental revenue from one specific custom project of $427,000 and $569,000, respectively. Excluding this custom project from our 2012 reported revenue would result, on a pro forma basis, in revenue growth of 12.9% in the fourth quarter of 2013 over 2012 and 13.2% for the 2013 annual period over the 2012 annual period (in contrast with our reported growth rates of 7.3% and 11.2%, respectively). Pro forma revenue growth was 16.8% in the fourth quarter of 2012 over 2011 and 12.8% for the 2012 annual period over the 2011 annual period (in contrast with our reported amounts of growth of 23.0% and 14.9%, respectively).

Reis's revenue model is based primarily on annual subscriptions that are paid in accordance with contractual billing terms. Reis recognizes revenue from its contracts on a ratable basis; for example, one-twelfth of the value of a one-year contract is recognized monthly. Therefore, increases in the dollar value of new contracts are spread evenly over the life of a contract, thereby moderating an immediate impact on revenue. Historically, the largest percentage of our contracts are executed in the fourth quarter of each year.

Two additional metrics management utilizes are deferred revenue and Aggregate Revenue Under Contract. Analyzing these amounts can provide additional insight into Reis Services's future financial performance. Deferred revenue, which is a GAAP basis accounting concept and is reported by the Company on the consolidated balance sheet, represents revenue from annual or longer term contracts for which we have billed and/or received payments from our subscribers related to services we will be providing over the remaining contract period. It does not include future revenue under non-cancellable contracts for which we do not yet have the contractual right to bill; this aggregate number we refer to as Aggregate Revenue Under Contract. Deferred revenue will be recognized as revenue ratably over the remaining life of a contract. The following table reconciles deferred revenue to Aggregate Revenue Under Contract at December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively.

December 31,
2013 2012
Deferred revenue (GAAP basis) $ 20,284,000 $ 18,230,000
Amounts under non-cancellable contracts for which the Company does not yet have the contractual right to bill at the period end (A) 20,046,000 18,179,000
Aggregate Revenue Under Contract $ 40,330,000 $ 36,409,000
(A) Amounts are billable subsequent to December 31 of each year and represent (i) non-cancellable contracts for subscribers with multi-year subscriptions where the future years are not yet billable, or (ii) subscribers with non-cancellable annual subscriptions with interim billing terms.

Included in Aggregate Revenue Under Contract at December 31, 2013 was approximately $27,338,000 related to amounts under contract for the forward twelve month period through December 31, 2014. The remainder reflects amounts under contract beyond December 31, 2014. The forward twelve month Aggregate Revenue Under Contract amount is approximately 79% of revenue on a trailing twelve month basis at December 31, 2013. For comparison purposes, at December 31, 2012 and 2011, the forward twelve month Aggregate Revenue Under Contract was $23,947,000 and $20,064,000, respectively, and as a percentage of that year's revenue was approximately 77% and 74%, respectively.

Both deferred revenue and Aggregate Revenue Under Contract are influenced by: (1) the timing and dollar value of contracts signed and billed; (2) the quantity and timing of contracts that are multi-year; and (3) the impact of recording revenue ratably over the life of a multi-year contract, which moderates the effect of price increases after the first year. Coupled with record new business and contract signings in 2013, the Company continued to sign new multi-year contracts.

EBITDA for the three months ended December 31, 2013 was $3,788,000, an increase of $245,000, or 6.9%, over the fourth quarter 2012 amount and increased $1,545,000, or 12.1%, in the year ended December 31, 2013 over the comparable 2012 annual period. On a consecutive quarter basis, EBITDA increased $109,000, or 3.0%, from the third quarter of 2013 to the fourth quarter of 2013. These increases were primarily derived from the corresponding increases in revenue, as described above. Operating expenses also continued to grow, but at a slower pace than revenue growth, the net effect of which resulted in the Reis Services EBITDA margins of 41.1% and 41.2% for the three months and year ended December 31, 2013 consistent with the 41.3% and 40.9% reported amounts in the 2012 comparable periods.

EBITDA in the fourth quarter and annual 2012 periods was similarly impacted from the aforementioned incremental custom work. Excluding only that incremental custom revenue from our reported 2012 EBITDA, would result, on a pro forma basis, in EBITDA growth of 21.6% in the fourth quarter of 2013 over 2012 and 17.3% for the 2013 annual period over the 2012 annual period (in contrast with our reported growth rates of 6.9% and 12.1%, respectively). The pro forma EBITDA growth was 13.4% in the fourth quarter of 2012 over 2011 and 12.5% for the 2012 annual period over the 2011 annual period (in contrast with our reported amounts of growth of 28.9% and 17.8%, respectively).

Reinvestment in our business remains a priority, including developing new products and functionality, expanding our databases or adding resources to grow our customer base. Accordingly, we continue to hire in many departments, including in sales (both new business and account management) as well as in operations, including our data collection departments. With a growing head count, the Company leased additional space in the third quarter of 2013. The impact of this additional expense began in the fourth quarter of 2013. Separately, as Reis's business continues to grow, we expect to devote additional resources to expand our sales pipeline through marketing efforts and sales force expansion. This additional spending may reduce our margins in 2014 below the 41.2% Reis Services EBITDA margin we reported for the 2013 annual period.

Reconciliations of Income from Continuing Operations to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

EBITDA is earnings (defined as income (loss) from continuing operations) before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and stock based compensation. Although EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of performance calculated in accordance with GAAP, senior management uses EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to measure operational and management performance. Management believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are appropriate metrics that may be used by investors as supplemental financial measures to be considered in addition to the reported GAAP basis financial information to assist investors in evaluating and understanding: (1) the performance of the Reis Services segment, the primary business of the Company and (2) the Company's continuing consolidated results, from year to year or period to period, as applicable. Further, these measures provide the reader with the ability to understand our operational performance while isolating non-cash charges, such as depreciation and amortization expenses, as well as other non-operating items, such as interest income, interest expense and income taxes and, in the case of Adjusted EBITDA, isolates non-cash charges for stock based compensation. Management also believes that disclosing EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA will provide better comparability to other companies in the information services sector. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are presented both for the Reis Services business and on a consolidated basis. We believe that these metrics, for Reis Services, provide the reader with valuable information for evaluating the financial performance of the core Reis Services business, excluding public company costs, and to make assessments about the intrinsic value of that stand-alone business to a potential acquirer. Management primarily monitors and measures its performance, and is compensated, based on the results of the Reis Services business. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, on a consolidated basis, allow the reader to make assessments about the current trading value of the Company's common stock, including expenses related to operating as a public company. However, investors should not consider these measures in isolation or as substitutes for net income (loss), income from continuing operations, operating income, or any other measure for determining operating performance that is calculated in accordance with GAAP. In addition, because EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not calculated in accordance with GAAP, they may not necessarily be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies. Reconciliations of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to the most comparable GAAP financial measure, income from continuing operations, follow for each identified period on a segment basis (including the Reis Services segment), as well as on a consolidated basis:

Discontinued Operations

In the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2013, the loss from discontinued operations, net of taxes, was $91,000 and $336,000, respectively, including the benefit of $80,000 of insurance recoveries in June 2013. The fourth quarter and year are net of a $230,000 income tax benefit. The losses from discontinued operations in 2013 are primarily legal and professional fees in connection with our recovery efforts related to the 2012 Gold Peak settlement. The consolidated net loss for the year ended December 31, 2012 was primarily the result of the $12.3 million loss from discontinued operations, net of taxes, which included a net $11.6 million charge, plus other costs, related to the March 2012 jury verdict and subsequently negotiated June 2012 settlement of the litigation related to the Company's former Gold Peak condominium development project.

Future cash flows from discontinued operations will be solely comprised of expenditures incurred as part of our cash recovery efforts from insurance companies and other potentially responsible parties and, to the extent that we are successful in these efforts, cash inflows from any future recoveries; however, there can be no assurance that the Company will recover any additional amounts in the short or long-term.

Income Taxes

The Company has aggregate Federal, state and local NOL carryforwards aggregating approximately $66,006,000 at December 31, 2013.

Deferred income taxes reflect the net tax effects of temporary differences between the carrying amount of assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and the amounts used for income tax purposes. The net deferred tax asset was approximately $23,789,000 and $9,622,000 at December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively, of which $2,472,000 and $1,065,000 is reflected as a net current asset in prepaid and other assets and $21,317,000 and $8,557,000 is reflected separately as a net non-current asset in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets, respectively. The significant portion of the deferred tax items primarily relate to: (1) NOL carryforwards; (2) Federal AMT credit carryforwards; (3) stock based compensation; and (4) liability reserves, all as they relate to deferred tax assets; and (5) the deferred tax liability resulting from the intangible assets recorded at the time of the Merger.

During the year ended December 31, 2013, the net income tax benefit from continuing operations of $13,670,000 included the aggregate deferred Federal, Federal AMT, state and local income tax benefit of $15,217,000 as a result of the release of the remaining valuation allowance against the Company's deferred tax assets, offset by a current state and local tax provision of $164,000, current Federal AMT of $53,000, deferred Federal, Federal AMT, state and local tax expenses aggregating $1,238,000 and a provision related to the excess tax benefit from stock based compensation of $92,000. During the year ended December 31, 2012, the net income tax benefit from continuing operations of $5,427,000 included the aggregate deferred Federal, state and local income tax benefit of $5,614,000 as a result of the partial release of the valuation allowance against certain deferred tax assets, offset by current state and local tax expense of $187,000 arising from the changes in that year of the Company's treatment of NOLs reflected on certain state and local tax returns. In the fourth quarters of 2013 and 2012, the Company reduced the valuation allowance recorded against a portion of its NOL carryforwards. The decisions to reduce the valuation allowance in each period was made after management determined, based on an assessment of continuing operations, profitability and forecasts of future taxable income, that these deferred tax assets would be realized.
