SAN MATEO, Calif., Aug. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Marketo, Inc. (NASDAQ: MKTO), the leading provider of engagement marketing software and solutions, today announced its second quarter 2016 financial results.

  • Deferred revenue increased 27 percent year over year to $102.8 million
  • Improved operating leverage year over year
  • Generated cash flow from operations of $5.2 million

"We delivered solid revenue growth, improved operating leverage and positive free cash flow in the second quarter," said Phil Fernandez, chairman and CEO of Marketo.  "We continue to see strong demand for our existing and new marketing solutions from fast-growth companies and large enterprises in both business and consumer segments. We are excited to be joining Vista Equity Partners and continue in our journey to set the agenda for product innovation and thought leadership for the entire digital marketing industry."

Results for the second quarter of 2016:

Reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures included in this release to their nearest GAAP equivalents are provided at the end of this release.

Outlook
Given the announcement made on May 31, 2016 regarding Marketo's entry into an agreement and plan of merger with Vista, the company will not provide outlook for its third quarter 2016 financial results and is withdrawing its previously issued financial guidance for full year 2016.

Conference Call Information
Given the announcement made on May 31, 2016 regarding Marketo's entry into an agreement and plan of merger with Vista, the company will not be hosting a conference call to discuss its second quarter 2016 financial results.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
Marketo provides financial statements that are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). To help understand Marketo's past financial performance and future results, Marketo has supplemented its financial results that it provides in accordance with GAAP with certain non-GAAP financial measures. The method Marketo uses to produce non-GAAP financial results may differ from the methods used by other companies. Non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be read only in conjunction with the company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.  Specifically, management is excluding the following items from its non-GAAP historical and estimated net loss and net loss per common share, basic and diluted:

  • Stock-Based Compensation Expenses: The company's compensation strategy includes the use of stock-based compensation to attract and retain employees and executives. It is principally aimed at aligning their interests with those of our stockholders and at long-term employee retention, rather than to motivate or reward operational performance for any particular period. Thus, stock-based compensation expense varies for reasons that are generally unrelated to operational decisions and performance in any particular period. 
  •  Amortization of Acquired Intangible Assets: The company views amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, such as the amortization of the cost associated with an acquired company's research and development efforts, trade names, customer lists and customer relationships, as items arising from pre-acquisition activities determined at the time of an acquisition. While these intangible assets are continually evaluated for impairment, amortization of the cost of purchased intangibles is a static expense, one that is not typically affected by operations during any particular period.
  • Acquisition-related expenses consist primarily of legal, banking and other advisory costs related to the proposed merger and have been excluded. The company believes that investors benefit from an understanding of the company's operating results by excluding such costs.
  • Adjustment to the value of redeemable non-controlling interest to the redemption amount is excluded as the company believes it may not be indicative of future operating results and that investors benefit from an understanding of the company's operating results without giving effect to this adjustment.
  • Additionally, the company believes the following supplemental non-GAAP financial information is useful to investors and others in assessing its operating performance. A calculation of the supplemental non-GAAP financial information is provided in the table titled 'Non-GAAP Supplemental financial information'.
  • Calculated billings is calculated as revenue plus the change in total deferred revenue as presented on the balance sheet.
  • Free cash flow is calculated as cash flow provided by (used in) operations less the purchase of property and equipment and capitalized software development costs presented on the statement of cash flows.

Marketo believes calculated billings offers investors useful supplemental information regarding the performance of its business, and will help investors better understand the sales volumes and performance of its business. The free cash flow metric is useful as it provides investors an enhanced view of the company's operational performance and the cash available to fund on-going operations. The presentation of non-GAAP free cash flow is not meant to be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income as an indicator of our performance, or as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity.

The company encourages investors to carefully consider its results under GAAP, as well as its supplemental non-GAAP information and the related reconciliations, to more fully understand its business. Reconciliations of these GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures are presented in the tables at the end of this release.

RECONCILIATION OF GAAP MEASURES TO NON-GAAP MEASURES
(In thousands, except per share data)
(Unaudited)

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, Marketo uses non-GAAP measures of operating loss, net loss and net loss per share, which are adjusted to exclude certain costs, expenses, gains and losses we believe appropriate to enhance an overall understanding of our past financial performance and also our prospects for the future. These adjustments to our current period GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of Marketo's underlying operational results and trends and our marketplace performance. In addition, these adjusted non-GAAP results are among the information management uses as a basis for our planning and forecasting of future periods. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America.
