SAN BRUNO, Calif., Feb. 20, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Responsys, Inc. (Nasdaq:MKTG), a leading provider of email and cross-channel marketing solutions, today announced financial results for the quarter ended December 31, 2012.

For the fourth quarter of 2012, total revenue increased 19.9% to $44.7 million, up from $37.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Subscription revenue for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $30.3 million, up 13.2% as compared to $26.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Professional services revenue was $14.4 million, up 37.2% as compared to $10.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2011.

GAAP net income for the fourth quarters of 2012 and 2011 were both $2.0 million. Similarly, net income per share attributable to common stockholders in the fourth quarters of 2012 and 2011 were both $0.04 per share on a diluted basis.

"Our strong fourth quarter financial results reflect our success in helping brands transform the way they interact and build relationships with their customers across the digital channels," said Dan Springer, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Responsys. "As digital marketers shift away from mass marketing to creating individualized experiences for each customer, we're poised to lead the market with the industry's only interaction management platform that puts the customer first, not the campaign."

For the year ended December 31, 2012, total revenue increased 20.7% to $162.8 million, up from $134.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2011.

Subscription revenue for the year 2012 was $113.4 million, up 20.0% as compared to $94.5 million in 2011. Professional services revenue for the year was $49.5 million, up 22.3% as compared to $40.4 million in 2011.

GAAP net income for 2012 was $7.6 million. This compares to GAAP net income of $8.0 million for 2011. Net income per share attributable to common stockholders in 2012 was $0.14 per share on a diluted basis, as compared to $0.12 in 2011. Both periods included a $2.2 million gain from acquisitions.

In addition to using GAAP results in evaluating Responsys' business, management believes it is useful to also measure results using non-GAAP net income, which is net income excluding stock-based compensation expense, amortization of acquired intangible assets, gain on acquisitions, and related income tax effects, as applicable.

Non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $3.7 million, or $0.07 per diluted share as compared to $3.3 million, or $0.06 per share on a non-GAAP diluted basis 1, for the fourth quarter of 2011.

Non-GAAP net income for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $11.6 million, or $0.22 per diluted share as compared to $11.0 million, or $0.21 per share on a non-GAAP diluted basis 1, for the year ended December 31, 2011.

A reconciliation of the comparable GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures used in this release is included in the attached tables.

Business Outlook

Based on information available as of February 20, 2013, Responsys is issuing guidance for the first quarter of 2013 and fiscal 2013 as follows:

Fiscal 2013 revenue is expected to be in the range of $188-192 million. Non-GAAP net income is expected to be approximately $0.16 to $0.18 per diluted share.

Non-GAAP net income for the full year excludes an estimated $1.8 million in amortization of acquired intangibles and an estimated $12.5 million in stock-based compensation expense. Non-GAAP net income per diluted share is based on weighted average diluted shares outstanding of 54 million.

For the first quarter of 2013, the Company expects revenue to be in the range of $43-$45 million. Non-GAAP net income is expected to be approximately $0.05 per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income for the quarter excludes an estimated $0.7 million in amortization of acquired intangibles and an estimated $2.9 million in stock-based compensation expense. Non-GAAP net income per diluted share is based on estimated weighted average diluted shares outstanding of 53.6 million.

Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter and fiscal year 2013 assumes an effective non-GAAP tax rate of 33% and 35%, respectively.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures including non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP net income per share on a diluted basis 1. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share on a diluted basis 1, exclude the amortization of acquired intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, gain on the acquisitions, and related tax effects. The Company believes that these non-GAAP measures of financial results provide useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to the Company's financial condition and results of operations. The Company's management uses these non-GAAP measures to compare the Company's performance to that of prior periods and uses these measures in financial reports prepared for management and the Company's board of directors. The Company believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing the Company's financial measures with other software-as-a-service companies, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors.

The Company does not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitation of these non-GAAP financial measures is that they exclude significant elements that are required by GAAP to be recorded in the Company's financial statements. In addition, they are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of judgments by management in determining these non-GAAP financial measures. In order to compensate for these limitations, management of the Company presents its non-GAAP financial measures in connection with its GAAP results. The Company urges investors to review the reconciliation of its non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures, which is included in this press release, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate the Company's business.

Forward Looking Statements

The financial projections under Business Outlook, and other forward-looking statements included in this release, reflect management's best judgment based on factors currently known and involve risks and uncertainties; our actual results may differ materially from those discussed here. These risks and uncertainties include: our ability to acquire and retain customers; whether customers purchase additional functionality and increase their usage; pricing pressures and competitive factors; the uncertain impact of overall global economic conditions, including on customers, prospective customers and partners, renewal rates and length of sales cycles; the fact that the market for cross-channel marketing solutions, particularly in emerging channels, is at an early stage of development and may not develop as rapidly as we anticipate; outages, which can affect customer satisfaction or result in reduced revenues; security breaches; our ability to develop, and market acceptance of, new products and services; the impact of any discovered product defects; our ability to manage our growth, both domestically and internationally; our ability to successfully expand our sales force and its effectiveness; our ability to maintain profitability; the level of hiring and equity award activity, which will affect the level of stock-based compensation expense; and other risks detailed from time to time in our SEC reports including, but not limited to, our most recent annual report on Form 10-K and most recent quarterly report on Form 10-Q. The Company disclaims any intention or obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements including any guidance, whether as a result of events or circumstances after the date hereof or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.

1 Non-GAAP net income per share attributable to common stockholders was derived by dividing by the corresponding non-GAAP basic and non-GAAP diluted weighted-average shares outstanding. Non-GAAP weighted-average shares outstanding for the twelve months ended December 31, 2011 was computed to give effect to the conversion of the Series A, Series B, Series C, Series D, and Series E convertible preferred stock using the as-if converted method into common shares as though the conversion had occurred as of the beginning of the period.
