In the fourth quarter 2011, the Company recorded a tax benefit of $12.8 million from a deferred tax asset valuation allowance reversal that positively impacted net income and net income per share. Non-GAAP net income per diluted share was $0.12, compared to non-GAAP net income per diluted share of $0.08 in the fourth quarter of 2011.

"2012 was a tremendous year for SPS Commerce, marked by solid execution and increased market leadership through our acquisition of Edifice," said Archie Black, President and CEO of SPS Commerce. "SPS Commerce sits at the forefront of the supply chain evolution as retailers and suppliers adapt to new technologies and greater consumer demands. Driving the industry forward is the need for increased collaboration within the trading partner ecosystem, growth in ecommerce, and changing distribution needs of the retailer. As we enter 2013, we're excited about the business and the multi-billion dollar opportunity we see in the retail supply chain world."

Revenue for the full year ended December 31, 2012 was $77.1 million compared to $58.0 million for the full year ended December 31, 2011, reflecting 33% growth in revenue. Recurring revenue grew 38% from the year ended December 31, 2011.

Net income for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012 was $1.2 million or $0.09 per diluted share, compared to net income of $13.7 million, or $1.08 per diluted share, for the comparable period in 2011. In the year ended 2011, the Company recorded a tax benefit of $12.8 million from a deferred tax asset valuation allowance reversal that positively impacted net income and net income per share. Non-GAAP net income per diluted share for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012 was $0.41, compared to non-GAAP net income per diluted share of $0.26 for the comparable period in 2011. Adjusted EBITDA for the full year ended December 31, 2012 was $9.0 million, compared to $5.4 million for the full year ended December 31, 2011.

"SPS Commerce had another successful year with revenue and Adjusted EBITDA ahead of guidance, and year over year recurring revenue growth of 38%," said Kim Nelson, CFO of SPS Commerce. "As we enter 2013, we plan to continue to deliver top line growth while incrementally increasing our margin."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its financial statements, SPS Commerce also provides investors with Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income per share, which are non-GAAP financial measures. SPS Commerce believes that these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to its financial condition and results of operations. SPS Commerce's management uses these non-GAAP measures to compare the company's performance to that of prior periods for trend analyses and planning purposes. It uses Adjusted EBITDA for purposes of determining executive and senior management incentive compensation. These measures are also presented to the company's board of directors.

EBITDA consists of net income plus depreciation and amortization, interest expense, interest income and income tax (benefit) expense. Adjusted EBITDA consists of EBITDA plus non-cash, share-based compensation expense. SPS Commerce uses Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of operating performance because it assists the company in comparing performance on a consistent basis, as it removes from operating results the impact of the company's capital structure. SPS Commerce believes Adjusted EBITDA is useful to an investor in evaluating the company's operating performance because it is widely used to measure a company's operating performance without regard to items such as depreciation and amortization, which can vary depending upon accounting methods and the book value of assets, and to present a meaningful measure of corporate performance exclusive of the company's capital structure and the method by which assets were acquired.

Non-GAAP net income per share consists of net income plus non-cash, share-based compensation expense and amortization expense related to intangible assets minus the deferred tax asset valuation allowance reversal divided by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during each period. SPS Commerce believes non-GAAP net income per share is useful to an investor because it is widely used to measure a company's operating performance.

These non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP to be recorded in the company's financial statements and are subject to inherent limitations. SPS Commerce urges investors to review the reconciliation of its non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures that are included in this press release.
