J2 Reports Q3 2013 Results

j2 Global, Inc. (NASDAQGS:JCOM) today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013 and announced that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.255 per share, j2’s ninth consecutive quarterly dividend increase.


Quarterly revenues increased 37.0% to $127.8 million compared to $93.2 million for Q3 2012 driven primarily by Digital Media revenues of $33.5 million compared to nil for Q3 2012 and 4.2% growth in Business Cloud Services subscription revenues to $93.4 million compared to $89.6 million for Q3 2012, partially offset by a decrease in intellectual property (IP) licensing revenues to $1.0 million from $3.0 million for Q3 2012.

GAAP earnings per diluted share (EPS) was impacted by $0.13 in the quarter due to $0.07 of “additional income tax benefit from prior years” recognized in Q3 2012 but not in Q3 2013, $0.03 from the shortfall in IP licensing revenues and $0.02 in additional interest expense recognized in Q3 2013 from a full-quarter of interest on j2’s Senior Notes versus approximately nine weeks of such interest in Q3 2012, resulting in Q3 2013 GAAP EPS of $0.59 compared to $0.69 for Q3 2012. Non-GAAP EPS (1)(2) was impacted by $0.06 in the quarter due to $0.03 from the shortfall in IP licensing revenues and $0.02 from the incremental interest expense on j2’s Senior Notes, resulting in Q3 2013 Non-GAAP EPS of $0.64 compared to $0.65 for Q3 2012.

Quarterly EBITDA (3) increased 5.6% to $52.8 million compared to $50.0 million for Q3 2012, despite a reduction of $2.0 million in EBITDA from IP licensing.

Free cash flow (4) for the quarter decreased to $22.3 million compared to $37.1 million for Q3 2012, primarily due to increases in accounts receivable related to the Digital Media division and the timing of payments of accounts payable and accrued expenses versus Q3 2012 resulting in a change in the Company’s working capital accounts of $11.5 million and an increase in capital additions of $4.2 million versus Q3 2012.

Cancel rate (5) for the quarter improved to 2.27% versus 2.28% for Q3 2012, remaining at near historic lows.

Net paid DIDs grew by approximately 29,000 during the quarter and total net paid DIDs deployed at quarter-end reached an all-time high of 2.22 million.
