Cost Reduction Plan

Today, Zynga announced a cost reduction plan expected to generate pre-tax savings of approximately $100 million, excluding an estimated $18 million to $22 million pre-tax restructuring charge in the second quarter of 2015. As part of the plan, Zynga expects to complete a reduction of approximately 18% of our current workforce across its studios, including contractors, and implement additional cost reduction measures, including lowering costs and eliminating spend on outside and centralized services. Zynga expects the workforce reduction to be complete in the fourth quarter of this year and generate approximately $45 million in annualized savings. Zynga expects the reduction in centralized services costs and spend to be complete by the third quarter of 2016 and generate approximately $55 million in annualized savings. All savings estimates exclude restructuring charges.

"For our people, we need to create an empowered, entrepreneurial culture that fosters more creativity and innovation. Over the years we've seen that tighter, more nimble teams can drive faster innovation and deliver more player value," said Pincus. "As a result, today we announced a cost reduction program to focus, simplify and align us against our most promising opportunities. We expect these cost reductions to generate $100 million in annualized savings. We are reducing our workforce by 364 people or approximately 18%, decreasing our outside services and reducing our central functions. This was a hard but necessary decision and I believe this plan puts us in the best long term position for success."

Launches First Mobile Action Strategy Game, Empires & Allies, Worldwide on the App Store and on Google Play

On May 5, 2015, Zynga launched Empires & Allies, its first mobile Action Strategy game, to global audiences. Empires & Allies is a new, modern military strategy game where players design their perfect army and deploy the weapons of modern war in a never-ending battle to save the world. Developed by a seasoned team of developers, and led by real-time strategy (RTS) and social games pioneer Mark Skaggs, Empires & Allies gives players new levels of strategic choice and control in every battle.

First Quarter Operational Metrics

The company tracks operating metrics using internal systems which rely on internal company data and third party data. In the first quarter of 2015, the company modified its calculation to take into account our business's transition to mobile and updates to our operating metrics which utilize additional third party data to help us identify whether a player logged in under two or more accounts is the same individual. As a result of these changes, we revised the definitions for DAUs, MAUs, MUUs, and MUPs in the first quarter of 2015. We rely on the veracity of data provided by individuals and reported by third parties to calculate our metrics and reduce duplication of data. For comparative purposes, these key operating metrics have been revised for the first quarter of 2014 and fourth quarter of 2014 to reflect the updated definitions. The following comparisons are based on the revised numbers for 2014. Please refer to our first quarter of 2015 investor presentation available at http://investor.zynga.com for a full explanation of the changes and the comparison of the revised and as reported numbers for 2014.

Key Operating Metrics

We manage our business by tracking several operating metrics: "DAUs," which measure daily active users of our games, "MAUs," which measure monthly active users of our games, "MUUs," which measure monthly unique users of our games, "MUPs," which measure monthly unique payers in our games, and "ABPU," which measures our average daily bookings per average DAU, each of which is recorded by our internal analytics systems. The numbers for these operating metrics are calculated using internal company data based on tracking of user account activity. We also use third party network logins to help us track whether a player logged under two or more different user accounts is the same individual. We believe that the numbers are reasonable estimates of our user base for the applicable period of measurement; however, factors relating to user activity and systems may impact these numbers.

Please refer to our first quarter of 2015 investor presentation available at http://investor.zynga.com for our updated definitions of "DAU," "MAU," "MUU," "MUP" and "ABPU."

MUUs and MUPs in this press release exclude MUUs and MUPs from NaturalMotion legacy games (CSR Racing, CSR Classics and Clumsy Ninja) as our systems are unable to distinguish whether a player of a NaturalMotion legacy game is also a player of a Zynga game. We exclude payers of NaturalMotion legacy games to avoid potential double counting of MUUs and MUPs.

We acquired NaturalMotion in February 2014. As a result, the financial information presented in this press release for January 2014 and a portion of February 2014 does not reflect any contribution from NaturalMotion.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We have provided in this release non-GAAP financial information including Bookings, Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share, as a supplement to the consolidated financial statements, which are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing our financial results to assess operational performance and liquidity. The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. We believe that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing our performance and when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they allow for greater transparency with respect to key financial metrics we use in making operating decisions and because our investors and analysts use them to help assess the health of our business. We have provided reconciliations between our historical and second quarter 2015 outlook for non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

Some limitations of Bookings, Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP loss per share, and free cash flow:

  • Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net loss do not include the impact of stock-based expense, asset impairment charges, acquisition-related transaction expenses, contingent consideration fair value adjustments and restructuring expense;

  • Bookings, Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net loss do not reflect that we defer and recognize online game revenue and revenue from certain advertising transactions over the estimated average life of virtual goods or as virtual goods are consumed;

  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect income tax expense;

  • Adjusted EBITDA does not include other income and expense, which includes foreign exchange gains and losses and interest income;

  • Adjusted EBITDA excludes both depreciation and amortization of intangible assets, while non-GAAP net loss excludes amortization of intangible assets from acquisitions. Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future;

  • Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net loss do not include gains and losses associated with significant legal settlements;

  • Non-GAAP net loss per share gives effect to all dilutive awards based on the treasury stock method that were excluded from the GAAP diluted earnings per share calculation in periods when non-GAAP net income (loss) is positive and GAAP net income (loss) is negative;

  • Free cash flow is derived from net cash provided by operating activities less cash spent on capital expenditures and acquisitions, and removing the excess income tax benefits or costs associated with stock-based awards; and

  • Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate bookings, Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss) per share and free cash flow differently or not at all, which will reduce their usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these limitations, you should consider bookings, Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss) per share, and free cash flow, along with other financial performance measures, including revenue, net income (loss), diluted net loss per share, cash flow from operations and GAAP operating margin and our other financial results presented in accordance with GAAP. See the GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliations below for further details.
