Third Quarter Results

Net sales for the third quarter of 2013 decreased 17% to $49.9 million from $59.8 million in the same quarter last year. Revenue this quarter was impacted by the absence of meaningful expansion in our domestic and international distribution channels and as well as modest product expansion with existing customers.

Revenue by channel was 84% through indirect channels, 8% through ZAGG.com and iFrogz.com and 8% through the Company's mall cart and kiosk programs.

Gross profit for the third quarter was $22.1 million or 44.3% of net sales, versus $26.6 million or 44.5% of net sales in the prior year quarter.

Operating income for the third quarter of 2013 was $6.4 million compared to operating income of $7.1 million for the third quarter of 2012.

Net income for the third quarter of 2013 was $3.2 million or $0.10 per diluted share as compared to net income of $3.4 million or $0.11 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2012.

Pro forma net income for the third quarter of 2013 was $5.9 million or $0.19 per diluted share as compared to pro forma net income of $7.0 million or $0.22 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2012.

About Non-GAAP Financial Information

ZAGG considers earnings before stock-based compensation expense, depreciation and amortization, other income/expense, impairment of investment, and provision for income taxes ("Adjusted EBITDA") to be an important financial indicator of the Company's operational strength and the performance of its business.

In addition, ZAGG considers earnings before stock-based compensation expense, amortization, impairment of investment, and other income/expense (excluding cash interest expense), net of tax effects where applicable, ("pro forma net income") to be a valuable metric in respect of the operational performance of the Company.

These results should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), but should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results.

A reconciliation of the differences between Adjusted EBITDA and pro forma net income, 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 Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations included below.

Outlook

The Company is revising full year revenue guidance for 2013 down to a range of $212.0 million - $218.0 million from the previous range of $245.0 million - $252.0 million. The Company is also revising full year Adjusted EBITDA guidance to $37.5 million - $ 39.5 million from the previous range of $41.0 million - $42.2 million.

Conference Call

A conference call will be held today at 5:00 p.m. EST to review these results. Interested parties may access via the Internet on the Company's website at: http://investors.zagg.com.

Non-GAAP Financial Disclosure

Investors are cautioned that the Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before stock-based compensation expense, depreciation and amortization, other income/expense, impairment of investment, and provision for income taxes) and pro forma net income (earnings before stock-based compensation expense, amortization, impairment of investment, and other income/expense [excluding cash interest expense], net of tax effects where applicable) contained in this press release are not financial measures under generally accepted accounting principles. In addition, they should not be construed as alternatives to any other measures of performance determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or 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. For comparative purposes, we applied an annualized statutory tax rate of 38.25% to derive the pro forma net income and pro forma EPS. We present this financial information because we believe that it is helpful to some investors as a measure of our performance. 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.
