  • Successful integration of Network Solutions acquisition with accelerating revenue growth
  • Achieved three million subscriber milestone with low churn rates and increasing average revenue per user (ARPU)
  • Generated cash from operations of $26.6 million in the fourth quarter
  • Reduced debt balance by $9.6 million in the fourth quarter and $70.1 million since closing the Network Solutions acquisition

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Feb. 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Web.com Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:WWWW), a leading provider of internet services and online marketing solutions for small businesses, today announced results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2012.

"2012 was a pivotal year for Web.com as our successful integration of Network Solutions has created a company with an annualized non-GAAP revenue run rate of more than $500 million, an accelerating revenue growth profile, and best-in-class profitability margins and strong cash flow from operations," said David Brown, chairman and chief executive officer of Web.com.

The Company achieved a significant milestone by exceeding three million subscribers at year end. Web.com's pro forma revenue growth rate accelerated from the low single digits in 2011 to 7.2% in 2012. Also during the fourth quarter, Web.com refinanced its debt to more attractive rates and further reduced its debt balance ahead of the prescribed schedule.

Mr. Brown added, "Our strategy of using our domain name business as a lead generation source and cross-sell opportunity for our broad suite of online marketing solutions is working. We believe we are well-positioned to continue delivering consistent net subscriber growth, improving ARPU gains with new products and services, and best in class churn rates to meet our longer-term target of low-teens revenue growth, consistently high profitability margins and even faster growth in earnings through continued deleveraging."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Some of the measures in this press release are non-GAAP financial measures within the meaning of the SEC Regulation G. Web.com believes presenting non-GAAP measures is useful to investors, because it describes the operating performance of the company, excluding some recurring charges that are included in the most directly comparable measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Web.com's management uses these non-GAAP measures as important indicators of the Company's past performance and in planning and forecasting performance in future periods. The non-GAAP financial information Web.com presents may not be comparable to similarly-titled financial measures used by other companies, and investors should not consider non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or in substitution for, financial information presented in compliance with GAAP. You are encouraged to review the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP financial measures included elsewhere in this press release.

Relative to each of the non-GAAP measures Web.com presents above, management further sets forth its rationale as follows:

  • Non-GAAP Revenue.  Web.com excludes from non-GAAP revenue the impact of the fair value adjustment to deferred revenue because we believe that excluding such measures helps management and investors better understand our revenue trends.
     
  • Non-GAAP Operating Income. Web.com excludes from non-GAAP operating income amortization of intangibles, fair value adjustment to deferred revenue and deferred expense, restructuring charges, corporate development expenses, stock-based compensation charges, and gains or losses from asset sales. Management believes that excluding these items assists investors in evaluating period-over-period changes in Web.com's operating income without the impact of items that are not a result of the Company's day-to-day business and operations.
     
  • Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Net Income Per Diluted Share. Web.com excludes from non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share amortization of intangibles, income tax expense, fair value adjustment to deferred revenue and deferred expense, restructuring charges, corporate development expenses, amortization of deferred financing fees, stock-based compensation, gains or losses from asset sales and includes cash income tax expense, because management believes that excluding such measures helps investors better understand the Company's operating activities.
     
  • Adjusted EBITDA. Web.com excludes from Adjusted EBITDA depreciation expense, amortization of intangibles, income tax, interest expense, interest income, stock-based compensation, gains or losses from asset sales, corporate development expenses, and restructuring charges, because management believes that excluding such items helps investors better understand the Company's operating activities.
  • In respect of the foregoing, Web.com provides the following supplemental information to provide additional context for the use and consideration of the non-GAAP financial measures used elsewhere in this press release:
     
  • Stock-based compensation.   These expenses consist of expenses for employee stock options and employee awards under ASC 718-10. While stock-based compensation expense calculated in accordance with ASC 718-10 constitutes an ongoing and recurring expense, such expense is excluded from non-GAAP results because it is not an expense that typically requires or will require cash settlement by Web.com and because such expense is not used by management to assess the core profitability of the Company's business operations. Web.com further believes these measures are useful to investors in that they allow for greater transparency to certain line items in our financial statements. In addition, excluding this item from various non-GAAP measures facilitates comparisons to the Company's competitors' operating results.
     
  • Amortization of intangibles. Web.com incurs amortization of acquired intangibles under ASC 805-10-65. Acquired intangibles primarily consist of customer relationships, non-compete agreements, trade names, and developed technology. Web.com expects to amortize for accounting purposes the fair value of the acquired intangibles based on the pattern in which the economic benefits of the intangible assets will be consumed as revenue is generated. Although the intangible assets generate revenue for Web.com, the item is excluded because this expense is non-cash in nature and because the Company believes the non-GAAP financial measures excluding this item provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company's operational performance. In addition, excluding this item from various non-GAAP measures facilitates management's internal comparisons to Web.com's historical operating results and comparisons to the Company's competitors' operating results.
     
  • Depreciation expense. Web.com incurs depreciation expense associated with its fixed assets. Although the fixed assets generate revenue for Web.com, the item is excluded because the Company believes the non-GAAP financial measures excluding this item provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company's operational performance, and its ability to invest in research and development and fund acquisitions and capital expenditures. In addition, excluding this item from certain non-GAAP measures facilitates management's internal comparisons to Web.com's historical operating results and comparisons to the Company's competitors' operating results.
     
  • Amortization of deferred financing fees. Web.com incurs amortization expense related to deferred financing fees. This item is excluded because Web.com believes the non-GAAP measures excluding this item provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company's operational performance. In addition, excluding this item from various non-GAAP measures facilitates management's internal comparisons to Web.com's historical operating results and comparisons to the Company's competitors' operating results.
     
  • Restructuring charges. Web.com has recorded restructuring charges. Web.com excludes the impact of these expenses from its non-GAAP measures, because such expense is not used by management to assess the core profitability of the Company's business operations. 
     
  • Income tax expense. Due to the magnitude of Web.com's historical net operating losses and related deferred tax asset, the Company excludes income tax expense from its non-GAAP measures primarily because they are not indicative of the cash tax paid by the Company and therefore are not reflective of ongoing operating results. Further, excluding this item from non-GAAP measures facilitates management's internal comparisons to the Company's historical operating results. Web.com also excludes income tax expense altogether from certain non-GAAP financial measures because the Company believes that the non-GAAP measures excluding this item provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company's operational performance and facilitates management's internal comparisons to the Company's historical operating results and comparisons to the Company's competitors' operating results.
     
  • Fair value adjustment to deferred revenue and deferred expense. Web.com has recorded a fair value adjustment to acquired deferred revenue and deferred expense in accordance with ASC 805-10-65. Web.com excludes the impact of this adjustment from its non-GAAP measures, because doing so results in non-GAAP revenue and non-GAAP net income which are reflective of ongoing operating results and more comparable to historical operating results, since the majority of the Company's revenue is recurring subscription revenue. Excluding the fair value adjustment to deferred revenue and deferred expense therefore facilitates management's internal comparisons to Web.com's historical operating results.
     
  • Corporate development expenses. Web.com incurred expenses relating to the acquisition and successful integration of acquisitions. Web.com excludes the impact of these expenses from its non-GAAP measures, because such expense is not used by management to assess the core profitability of the Company's business operations.
     
  • Gains or losses from asset sales and certain other transactions. Web.com excludes the impact of asset sales and certain other transactions including debt extinguishments and the sale of equity method investments from its non-GAAP measures because the impact of this item is not considered part of our ongoing operations.
