NEW YORK, March 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reis, Inc. (NASDAQ:REIS) (“Reis” or the “Company”), a leading provider of commercial real estate market information and analytical tools, announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2017.

Fourth Quarter 2017 Financial Highlights

  • Total revenue of $12.2 million, up 6.1% fourth quarter 2017 over 2016; subscription revenue of $11.8 million, up 4.4% quarter-over-quarter
  • Income before income taxes of $1.0 million for fourth quarter 2017, or 8.5% of total revenue, compared to a (loss) before income taxes of $(141,000) in the corresponding 2016 period
  • Net loss of $(4.5) million, or $(0.40) per diluted share for fourth quarter 2017, inclusive of a one-time deferred tax asset reduction of $5.1 million as a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act enacted by the U.S. Federal government on December 22, 2017
  • Reis Services EBITDA of $4.3 million, up 62.4% fourth quarter 2017 over 2016; consolidated Adjusted EBITDA of $3.8 million, up 63.8% quarter-over-quarter
  • Quarter ended with nearly $20 million in cash and no debt
  • Deferred revenue ended 2017 at $26.5 million, Reis’s highest reported balance and a year-over-year increase of $1.5 million

Reis’s CEO, Lloyd Lynford, noted, “Total revenue grew and our margins again increased sequentially in the fourth quarter, as has been the case throughout 2017. Our improving financial performance is a direct result of the deliberate and measured investments we have made in our operations, database, and website over the past few years. These investments have positioned us to expand our offerings and attract new firms and user groups to our services. Over the course of 2017 and thus far in 2018, we have unveiled a series of new products and product enhancements that significantly expand our target market and lay the groundwork for future growth. In particular, we believe our “Every Property, Everywhere” initiative and our API delivery system have opened up substantial new revenue opportunities with existing clients and prospects, as well as with emerging Fintech companies.”

Fourth Quarter and 2017 Financial Summary

Revenue

Total revenue was $12.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2017, growth of 6.1% over the fourth quarter 2016 reported amount of $11.5 million. Total revenue in the 2017 fourth quarter was comprised of subscription revenue of $11.8 million and other revenue of $0.4 million. Total revenue in the year ended December 31, 2017 was $48.2 million, a moderate increase of 1.4% from the 2016 reported amount. Total revenue for the year ended December 31, 2017 was comprised of $46.8 million of subscription revenue and $1.4 million of other revenue. Subscription revenue for the three months and year ended December 31, 2017 grew 4.4% and 3.1%, respectively, over the corresponding 2016 periods. The fourth quarter 2017 marks the sixth consecutive quarter over quarter growth in subscription revenue and the third consecutive quarter over quarter growth in total revenue.

Total operating expenses

Total operating expenses for the quarter ended December 31, 2017 were $8.2 million compared to $8.5 million for the corresponding period last year. The decrease was driven primarily by a decline in sales and marketing expenses of $292,000, and a $187,000 decline in general and administrative expense as a result of reduced legal fees and lower occupancy costs. Total operating expenses for the year ended December 31, 2017 were $33.1 million compared to $31.7 million for the prior year. The increase was driven primarily by an increase in sales and marketing expenses of $747,000 as a result of higher employment costs associated with new hires in sales management, sales enablement and marketing and a $529,000 increase in product development expense as a result of the Company’s investment in its websites and databases.

Income (loss) before income taxes

Income before income taxes was $1.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2017 as compared to a loss of $(0.1) million for the corresponding 2016 period. Income before income taxes was $2.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2017 as compared to income before income taxes of $4.7 million for the corresponding 2016 period.

Income tax expense

Income tax expense for the quarter ended December 31, 2017 was $5.6 million compared to $89,000 for the corresponding period last year. The fourth quarter of 2017 tax expense was primarily driven by corporate Federal tax reform that was signed into law in December 2017. The Company remeasured its deferred tax assets as a result of the Federal corporate tax rate reduction from 35% to 21% and recorded a provisional estimate of $5.1 million at December 31, 2017 to reduce the deferred tax asset balance.

Net income (loss)

The Company’s net loss was $(4.5) million, or $(0.40) per diluted share, for the three months ended December 31, 2017 as compared to a loss of $(0.2) million, or $(0.02) per diluted share, for the corresponding 2016 period. The Company’s net loss was $(3.2) million, or $(0.28) per diluted share, for the year ended December 31, 2017 as compared to net income of $2.8 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, for the corresponding 2016 annual period.

Reis Services EBITDA and Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA

Reis Services EBITDA was $4.3 million during the fourth quarter of 2017, growth of 62.4% over the fourth quarter 2016 reported amount of $2.7 million. The Reis Services EBITDA margins were 35.3% and 23.1% for the three months ended December 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively (see the “Supplemental Financial Information and Reconciliations from GAAP to Non-GAAP Metrics” section at the end of this earnings release for a definition and reconciliations of net income to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA for the Reis Services segment and on a consolidated basis). Reis Services EBITDA was $15.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2017, a slight decline of (2.6)% from the 2016 reported amount of $15.5 million. The Reis Services EBITDA margins were 31.4% and 32.7% for the years ended December 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively.

The consolidated Adjusted EBITDA margins were 30.9% and 20.0% for the three months ended December 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively. Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA for the year ended December 31, 2017 was $12.8 million, a decline of (5.3)% from the comparable 2016 reported amount of $13.5 million. The consolidated Adjusted EBITDA margins were 26.6% and 28.5% for the years ended December 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively.

Investments in the Company’s website and database intangible assets totaled $8.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2017 compared to $8.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2016.

Aggregate Revenue Under Contract was $52.0 million as of December 31, 2017 compared to $51.0 million as of December 31, 2016.

Critical Business Metrics

Management considers certain metrics in evaluating its consolidated results and the performance of the Reis Services segment. These metrics are revenue, revenue growth, EBITDA (which is earnings (net income (loss)) before discontinued operations, interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization), EBITDA growth, EBITDA margin, Adjusted EBITDA (which is net income (loss) before discontinued operations, interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation), Adjusted EBITDA growth and Adjusted EBITDA margin. Other important metrics that management considers include cash flow generation as well as the visibility into future performance as supported by our deferred revenue and other related metrics discussed in Item 7. “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” of our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017.

Following is a presentation of revenue, net income (loss), income before income taxes and discontinued operations, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and the related margins on a consolidated basis and revenue, EBITDA and EBITDA margin for the Reis Services segment (see below for a reconciliation of net income (loss) to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA for both the Reis Services segment and on a consolidated basis for each of the periods presented here).

Reconciliations of Net Income to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

We define EBITDA as earnings (net income (loss)) before discontinued operations, interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before discontinued operations, 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 supplemental financial measures to be considered in addition to the reported GAAP basis financial information, which may 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. However, 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. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are presented both for the Reis Services segment 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 for making 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 segment. 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. 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:

Deferred Revenue and Aggregate Revenue Under Contract

Two balance-sheet based 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. Aggregate Revenue Under Contract is the sum of deferred revenue and future revenue under non-cancellable contracts for which we do not yet have the contractual right to bill and excludes any future revenues expected to be derived from subscribers currently being billed on a monthly basis.

Deferred revenue will be recognized as revenue ratably over the remaining life of a contract for subscriptions, or in the case of future custom reports or projects, will be recognized as revenue upon completion and delivery to the customer, provided no significant Company obligations remain. At any given date, both deferred revenue and Aggregate Revenue Under Contract can be either positively or negatively 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. The following table reconciles deferred revenue to Aggregate Revenue Under Contract at December 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively.

December 31,
2017 2016
Deferred revenue (GAAP basis)$ 26,534,000 $ 25,031,000
Amounts under non-cancellable contracts for which the
Company does not yet have the contractual right to bill at
the period end (A)
25,470,000 25,928,000
Aggregate Revenue Under Contract$ 52,004,000 $ 50,959,000


(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, 2017 was approximately $35,878,000 related to amounts under contract for the forward twelve-month period through December 31, 2018. The remainder reflects amounts under contract beyond December 31, 2018. The forward twelve-month Aggregate Revenue Under Contract amount is approximately 74.5% of total revenue on a trailing twelve month basis at December 31, 2017. For comparison purposes, at December 31, 2016 and 2015, the forward twelve-month Aggregate Revenue Under Contract was $34,778,000 and $33,822,000, respectively, and as a percentage of that year’s total revenue was approximately 73.2% and 66.5%, respectively.
