Fourth fiscal quarter highlights include:

  • Q4 revenue from continuing operations of $48.3 million, an increase of 12% year over year
  • First quarter of positive operating cash flow since IPO

AUSTIN, Texas, June 10, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bazaarvoice, Inc. (Nasdaq:BV), the network connecting brands and retailers to the authentic voices of consumers wherever they shop, reported its financial results for the fourth fiscal quarter and fiscal year ended April 30, 2015.

"For the fourth quarter, I am pleased that we delivered 12% revenue growth and for the first time since our IPO, positive operating cash flow. In addition, our international teams continued to improve their performance and we are seeing good momentum with our new product offerings," said Gene Austin, chief executive officer and president. "We are well on our way to expanding our product offerings beyond ratings and reviews into a full set of consumer generated content solutions and services for our clients and prospects."

Fourth Fiscal Quarter of 2015 Financial Details

The divestiture of PowerReviews was completed on July 2, 2014. The terms of the transaction were approved by the Department of Justice on June 26, 2014. As a result, PowerReviews revenues, related expenses and loss on disposal, net of tax, are components of "Loss from discontinued operations, net of tax" in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations since our fourth fiscal quarter of 2014 and all comparative fiscal quarters presented. The Statement of Cash Flows is reported on a combined basis without separately presenting cash flows from discontinued operations for all periods presented.

Summary data below describes results from continuing operations and excludes results from discontinued operations.

Revenue from continuing operations: Bazaarvoice reported revenue of $48.3 million for the fourth fiscal quarter of 2015, up 12% from the fourth fiscal quarter of 2014, and consisted of SaaS revenue of $46.2 million and net media revenue of $2.1 million.

Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations: Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth fiscal quarter of 2015 was a loss of $3.6 million, a significant improvement compared with a loss of $7.6 million for the fourth fiscal quarter of 2014.

GAAP net loss and net loss per share from continuing operations: GAAP net loss was $8.8 million, compared to a GAAP net loss of $12.2 million for the fourth fiscal quarter of 2014. GAAP net loss per share was $0.11 based upon weighted average shares outstanding of 79.7 million, compared to $0.16 for the fourth fiscal quarter of 2014 based upon weighted average shares outstanding of 77.2 million.

Non-GAAP net loss and net loss per share from continuing operations: Non-GAAP net loss was $4.4 million, compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $8.4 million for the fourth fiscal quarter of 2014. Non-GAAP net loss per share was $0.06 based upon weighted average shares outstanding of 79.7 million, compared to $0.11 for the fourth fiscal quarter of 2014 based upon weighted average shares outstanding of 77.2 million.

Fiscal Year 2015 Financial Details

Revenue from continuing operations: Bazaarvoice reported revenue of $191.2 million for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2015, up 14% from the fiscal year ended April 30, 2014, and consisted of SaaS revenue of $182.1 million and net media revenue of $9.1 million.

Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations: Adjusted EBITDA for the fiscal year 2015 was a loss of $8.7 million, a significant improvement from a loss of $21.9 million for the fiscal year 2014.

GAAP net loss per share was $0.42 based upon weighted average shares outstanding of 78.6 million, compared to GAAP net loss per share of $0.70 for the fiscal year 2014 based upon weighted average shares outstanding of 75.6 million.

Non-GAAP net loss and net loss per share from continuing operations: Non-GAAP net loss was $15.0 million, compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $25.8 million for fiscal year 2014. Non-GAAP net loss per share was $0.19 based upon weighted average shares outstanding of 78.6 million, compared to non-GAAP net loss per share of $0.34 for the fiscal year 2014 based upon weighted average shares outstanding of 75.6 million.

Clients: The number of active clients at the end of the fourth fiscal quarter and fiscal year 2015 was 1,353 and the number of network clients at the end of the fourth fiscal quarter and fiscal year 2015 was over 3,800. Annualized SaaS revenue per average active client for the fiscal year 2015 was approximately $149,000.

Number of Active Clients: Beginning as of our fourth fiscal quarter of 2014, we define an active client as an organization from which we are currently recognizing recurring revenue, and we count organizations that are closely related as one client, even if they have signed separate contractual agreements. We believe that our ability to increase our active client base is a leading indicator of our ability to grow revenue.

Due to the presentation of the PowerReviews business as discontinued operations, we have separated our active clients into two categories: 1) active clients from continuing operations and 2) active clients from discontinued operations. As a result, each category could include a common client for which we recognized recurring revenue who has organizations that have separate contractual agreements.

All periods prior to the fourth fiscal quarter of 2014 discussed in this press release or presented in the accompanying financial tables have been revised to conform to this definition of an active client.

Number of Network Clients:

We define a network client as an organization that does not have recurring revenue. We count organizations that are closely related as one client, even if they have signed separate contractual agreements. We believe that our network client base in combination with our active client base is an indicator of the reach of our network.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA for continuing operations discussed in this press release is defined as our GAAP net loss from continuing operations adjusted for stock-based expense, contingent consideration related to acquisition, adjusted depreciation and amortization (which excludes amortization of capitalized internal-use software development costs), integration and other costs related to acquisitions, other non-business costs and benefits, income tax expense and other (income) expense, net.

Adjusted EBITDA for discontinued operations presented in the accompanying financial tables is defined as our GAAP net loss from discontinued operations adjusted for stock-based expense, adjusted depreciation and amortization (which excludes amortization of capitalized internal-use software development costs), impairment of acquired intangibles, integration and other costs related to the acquisition and the divestiture of PowerReviews, estimated loss on disposal of discontinued operations, other non-business costs and benefits, income tax expense and other (income) expense, net.

Non-GAAP net loss for continuing operations, which is used to calculate non-GAAP net loss per share for continuing operations, is defined as our GAAP net loss from continuing operations, adjusted to exclude stock-based expense, contingent consideration related to acquisition, amortization of acquired intangible assets, integration and other costs related to acquisitions, and other non-business costs and benefits along with the associated income tax effect of these adjustments.

Non-GAAP net loss for discontinued operations, which is used to calculate non-GAAP net loss per share for discontinued operations, is defined as our GAAP net loss from discontinued operations adjusted to exclude stock-based expense, amortization of acquired intangible assets, impairment of acquired intangibles, integration and other costs related to the acquisition and divestiture of PowerReviews, estimated loss on disposal of discontinued operations and other non-business costs and benefits along with the associated income tax effect of these adjustments.

Management presents these non-GAAP financial measures because it considers them to be important supplemental measures of core operating performance. Further, management has presented these non-GAAP financial measures separately for discontinued operations as it may prove useful to securities analysts and investors in evaluating the impact of the divestiture of PowerReviews on the Company's continuing operating performance. Management uses the non-GAAP financial measures for planning purposes, including analysis of the Company's operating performance against prior periods and the effectiveness of our business strategies, the preparation of operating budgets and to determine appropriate levels of operating and capital investments, as well as in communications with our board of directors concerning our financial performance. Management also believes that the non-GAAP financial measures provide additional insight for securities analysts and investors in evaluating the Company's financial and operational performance without regard to items that can vary substantially from company to company depending upon their financing, capital structures, and the method by which assets were acquired. However, these non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results of operations as reported under GAAP. Furthermore, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other organizations because other organizations may not calculate these non-GAAP financial measures in the same manner. We intend to provide these non-GAAP financial measures as part of our future financial results discussions; therefore, the inclusion of these non-GAAP financial measures will provide consistency in our financial reporting. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to GAAP is provided in the accompanying tables.

Sales and marketing -- -- -- (295)
Contingent consideration related to acquisition $ -- $ -- $ -- $ (3,860)
Revaluation of contingent consideration is the decrease in fair value of the liability-classified contingent consideration related to the acquisition of Longboard Media, Inc. Contingent consideration included in compensation expense relates to certain Longboard Media, Inc. employees whose right to receive such compensation is forfeited if they terminate their employment prior to the required service period. The contingent consideration was payable on Longboard Media's achievement of certain performance goals for the period from January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2013. On October 31, 2013, the Company determined that the probability of the attainment of the underlying performance goals was remote and the resultant payout was estimated to be zero. As a result, the fair value of the liability-classified contingent consideration and the liability accrued for contingent consideration included in compensation expense were reduced to zero. On January 31, 2014, the Company concluded that the underlying performance goals were not met and the payout was zero. The Company excludes these items from its non-GAAP financial measures in order to facilitate the comparison of post-acquisition operating results.
(3) Adjusted depreciation and amortization includes the following:
Cost of revenue $ 405 $ 244 $ 1,713 $ 937
Sales and marketing 220 275 1,002 1,112
Research and development 181 189 786 813

(4) Other stock-related expense includes the following:
General and administrative $ -- $ -- $ (430) $ --
Other stock-related expense $ -- $ -- $ (430) $ --
Other stock-related expense represents an estimated liability for taxes and related items in connection with the treatment of certain stock option grants. Since the estimated liability directly relates to stock option grants and as stock-based expenses are consistently excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures, the Company excluded this estimated liability. During the fiscal year ended April 30, 2015, the Company recorded a benefit of $0.4 million due to a reduction of this estimated liability.

(3) On July 2, 2014, the Company completed the sale of PowerReviews for a total cash consideration of $30.0 million. Of the $30.0 million sales price, $4.5 million was placed into escrow as partial security for the Company's indemnification obligations. The Company incurred a total loss of $10.7 million on the sale of PowerReviews. The loss on disposal of discontinued operations was determined by offsetting the total consideration from selling the PowerReviews business by any associated transaction costs and the net carrying value of the assets and liabilities held for sale as of July 2, 2014. Of the $10.7 million loss on disposal of discontinued operations, $9.2 million was recognized as an estimated loss on disposal of discontinued operations during the three months ended April 30, 2014 resulting in the incremental loss of $1.5 million being recognized during the fiscal year ended April 30, 2015.
(4) During the fourth fiscal quarter of 2014, the Company reported the results of operations and financial position of PowerReviews as "discontinued operations." On the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet as of April 30, 2014, the assets and liabilities of PowerReviews are presented as "Assets held for sale" and "Liabilities held for sale." The Company compared the carrying value of the asset group included in "assets held for sale" to the undiscounted cash flows to be generated by the asset group. The carrying value of the asset group exceeded the undiscounted cash flows and, as a result, the Company recorded an impairment charge of $2.5 million for the three months ended April 30, 2014.

Revaluation of contingent consideration is the decrease in fair value of the liability-classified contingent consideration related to the acquisition of Longboard Media, Inc. Contingent consideration included in compensation expense relates to certain Longboard Media, Inc. employees whose right to receive such compensation is forfeited if they terminate their employment prior to the required service period. The contingent consideration was payable on Longboard Media's achievement of certain performance goals for the period from January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2013. On October 31, 2013, the Company determined that the probability of the attainment of the underlying performance goals was remote and the resultant payout was estimated to be zero. As a result, the fair value of the liability-classified contingent consideration and the liability accrued for contingent consideration included in compensation expense were reduced to zero. On January 31, 2014, the Company concluded that the underlying performance goals were not met and the payout was zero. The Company excludes these items from its non-GAAP financial measures in order to facilitate the comparison of post-acquisition operating results.

Other stock-related expense represents an estimated liability for taxes and related items in connection with the treatment of certain stock option grants. Since the estimated liability directly relates to stock option grants and as stock-based expenses are consistently excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures, the Company excluded this estimated liability. During the three months ended July 31, 2014, the Company recorded a benefit of $0.4 million due to a reduction of this estimated liability.
(6) Beginning as of the fourth fiscal quarter of 2014, the Company defines an active client as an organization from which the Company is currently recognizing recurring revenue, and the Company counts organizations that are closely related as one client, even if they have signed separate contractual agreements. The Company believes that the ability to increase its active client base is a leading indicator of the Company's ability to grow revenue.

Due to the presentation of the PowerReviews business as discontinued operations, the Company has separated the active clients into two categories: 1) active clients from continuing operations and 2) active clients from discontinued operations. As a result, each category could include a common client for which the Company has recognized recurring revenue who has organizations that have separate contractual agreements.

All periods prior to the fourth fiscal quarter of 2014 discussed in this press release or presented in the accompanying financial tables have been revised to conform to this definition of an active client.
(7) During the fourth fiscal quarter of 2014, the Company reported the results of operations and financial position of PowerReviews as "discontinued operations." On the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet as of April 30, 2014, the assets and liabilities of PowerReviews were presented as "Assets held for sale" and "Liabilities held for sale." The Company compared the carrying value of the asset group included in "assets held for sale" to the undiscounted cash flows to be generated by the asset group. The carrying value of the asset group exceeded the undiscounted cash flows and, as a result, the Company recorded an impairment charge of $2.5 million for the three months ended April 30, 2014.
(8) On July 2, 2014, the Company completed the sale of PowerReviews for a total cash consideration of $30.0 million. Of the $30.0 million sales price, $4.5 million was placed into escrow as partial security for the Company's indemnification obligations. The Company incurred a total loss of $10.7 million on the sale of PowerReviews. The loss on disposal of discontinued operations was determined by offsetting the total consideration from selling the PowerReviews business by any associated transaction costs and the net carrying value of the assets and liabilities held for sale as of July 2, 2014. Of the $10.7 million loss on disposal of discontinued operations, $9.2 million was recognized as an estimated loss on disposal of discontinued operations during the three months ended April 30, 2014 resulting in the incremental loss of $1.5 million being recognized in the three months ended July 31, 2014.
