Ellie Mae ® (NYSE: ELLI), a leading provider of on-demand, enterprise level automation solutions for the residential mortgage industry, today reported results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013.
Second Quarter Highlights
- Revenue up 45% year over year to $34.3 million
- Adjusted net income up 30% year over year to $8.2 million
- Adjusted EBITDA up 60% year over year to $11.7 million
- $9.4 million of free cash flow generated
- 88,688 active Encompass360 ® users as of June 30, 2013, up 42% year over year
“During the second quarter, we delivered strong top line growth driven by continued demand for our SaaS solutions,” said Sig Anderman, CEO of Ellie Mae. “Once again, we sold a record number of SaaS Encompass360 seats, with a particularly strong increase in new customers, while adding more users at current customers and upgrading existing licensed customers to our SaaS platform. We also experienced good momentum in increasing the number of new active SaaS users during the quarter, providing a solid foundation for future growth.”
“We are taking advantage of our higher than anticipated revenues to invest aggressively in initiatives that we believe will help us continue to grow our business and increase the competitive advantage of our products and services. During the second quarter we accelerated our investment in our sales and client services capabilities as well as in technology infrastructure to support our rapid user seat additions and overall business growth. This resulted in higher operating expenses for the second quarter,” continued Mr. Anderman.“We are pleased to again raise our full year revenue guidance, despite the current expectations for a decline in mortgage origination volumes for the second half of this year. Also for the full year 2013, we are maintaining our adjusted EBITDA guidance and increasing our adjusted net income guidance. As a result of increased hiring of talent to support the growth of our business and the performance share awards granted, stock-based compensation expense was higher in the second quarter of 2013, so we are revising downward our net income guidance for the full year,” Mr. Anderman concluded.
