Zynga to Acquire Leading Mobile Game Developer NaturalMotion

Zynga also announced today, an agreement to acquire privately-held NaturalMotion, a leading mobile game and technology developer for approximately $527 million in cash and equity, based on Zynga's closing price on January 29, 2014. NaturalMotion is led by a seasoned team of technology innovators, including Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder Torsten Reil and Vice President of Games Barclay Deeming. NaturalMotion was founded in 2001 and has approximately 260 employees across Oxford, London, Brighton and San Francisco.

NaturalMotion's hit mobile games, CSR Racing and Clumsy Ninja, are in the popular consumer categories of Racing and People simulation. NaturalMotion possesses industry leading technology and tools and its proven simulation technologies have powered some of the biggest console games and blockbuster movies.

Key Business Terms

  • At closing, NaturalMotion's shareholders and vested option holders will receive an aggregate of $391 million in cash and approximately 39.8 million shares of Zynga Class A Common Stock
  • Approximately 11.6 million of the 39.8 million shares will be issued to continuing employees and will be subject to vesting over a three-year period

Strategic Rationale

  • Transaction is expected to be accretive to non-GAAP earnings and generate bookings in the range of $70 to $80 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $15 to $25 million in 2014
  • Expands Zynga's creative pipeline into two new consumer categories - Racing and People simulation
  • Accelerates mobile growth, bringing a track record of success and creative and technical talent
  • Provides cutting edge technology and tools, including Euphoria, to fast track Zynga's ability to deliver hit games

"We believe that bringing Zynga and NaturalMotion together is the right step at the right time," said Mattrick. "Our acquisition of NaturalMotion will allow us to significantly expand our creative pipeline, accelerate our mobile growth and bring next-generation technology and tools to Zynga that we believe will fast track our ability to deliver more hit games. Their creative portfolio aligns perfectly with our content strategy as Zynga will now have five top brands and capabilities in the Farm, Casino, Words, Racing and People categories.  We are confident that we will build upon our market position with complementary strengths to generate long term value for our consumers, our employees and our shareholders."

"NaturalMotion set out to make games that wow millions of people, by being obsessed with quality, disrupting and creating genres, and using almost magical technology. When we started talking to Don and his team, it quickly became clear that they shared this vision. Don's background in AAA games and Zynga's expertise in social game play and large-scale game operations will be invaluable to helping us grow our existing CSR and Clumsy Ninja franchises and maximize the breakout potential of our upcoming titles. We've reached our first milestones - creating #1 top-grossing and top-free titles - on our own. We can't wait to see what we can achieve together with Zynga," said Torsten Reil, CEO and Co-Founder, NaturalMotion.

Cost Reduction Plan

Today Zynga announced a cost reduction plan expected to generate pre-tax savings in the range of $33 million to $35 million in 2014, excluding an estimated $15 million to $17 million pre-tax restructuring charge in Q1. As part of the plan, Zynga expects to complete a workforce reduction of approximately 314 employees or approximately 15% of its current workforce, and implement additional cost reduction measures, including lowering its spend on datacenter infrastructure.

The achievement or success of the matters covered by such forward-looking statements involves significant risks, uncertainties, and assumptions. Our actual results could differ materially from those predicted or implied, and reported results should not be considered as an indication of our future performance. Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to, our relationship with Facebook or changes in the Facebook platform, delays or other challenges in the completion of the NaturalMotion acquisition, its integration and the success of its current and future games as part of Zynga, delays or challenges in implementing our reduction in force or other cost-cutting activities, attrition and declines in our existing games, our ability to launch new games in a timely manner and monetize these games effectively on the web and on mobile, our ability to control and reduce expenses, our exposure to illegitimate credit card activity and other security risks, sales or purchases of virtual goods used in Zynga Poker or our other games through unauthorized or fraudulent third-party websites, our ability to anticipate and address technical challenges that may arise, competition, changing interests of players, intellectual property disputes or other litigation, asset impairment charges, our ability to retain key employees, acquisitions by us, and changes in corporate strategy or management.

More information about factors that could affect our operating results is included under the captions "Risk Factors" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended September 30, 2013 and in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012, copies of which may be obtained by visiting our Investor Relations web site at http://investor.zynga.com or the SEC's web site at www.sec.gov. Undue reliance should not be placed on the forward-looking statements in this release, which are based on information available to us on the date hereof. There is no guarantee that the circumstances described in our forward-looking statements will occur. We assume no obligation to update such statements. The results we report in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013 could differ from the preliminary results we have announced in this press release.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

We have provided in this release non-GAAP financial information including bookings, Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP EPS, as a supplement to the consolidated financial statements, which are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing our financial results to assess operational performance and liquidity. The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. We believe that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing our performance and when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they allow for greater transparency with respect to key financial metrics we use in making operating decisions and because our investors and analysts use them to help assess the health of our business. We have provided reconciliations between our historical and first quarter 2014 outlook for non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. However, we have not provided reconciliation of full year 2014 bookings outlook to revenue, Adjusted EBITDA outlook to net income (loss), non-GAAP effective tax rate outlook to GAAP effective tax rate or non-GAAP EPS outlook to GAAP EPS because certain reconciling items necessary to accurately project revenue (including the projected mix of virtual goods sold in our games, and the projected estimated average lives of durable virtual goods for our games) for a full year are not in our control and cannot be reasonably projected due to variability from period to period caused by changes in player behavior and other factors. As revenue and/or net income for the applicable future period is a necessary input to determine all of these comparable GAAP figures, we are not able to provide these reconciliations for the full year 2014. For the same reason, we have also not provided a reconciliation of our outlook for the impact on bookings, Adjust EBITDA and non-GAAP EPS related to the NaturalMotion acquisition. 

Some limitations of bookings, Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP EPS, and free cash flow:

  • Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income (loss) do not include the impact of stock-based expense, asset impairment charges, acquisition-related contingent consideration and restructuring expense;
  • Bookings, Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income (loss) do not reflect that we defer and recognize online game revenue and revenue from certain advertising transactions over the estimated average life of virtual goods or as virtual goods are consumed;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect income tax expense;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not include other income and expense, which includes foreign exchange gains and losses, interest income, and the net gain from the termination of our lease and purchase of our corporate headquarters building;
  • Adjusted EBITDA excludes both depreciation and amortization of intangible assets, while non-GAAP net income excludes amortization of intangible assets from acquisitions. Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future;
  • Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income (loss) do not include gains and losses associated with significant legal settlements;
  • Non-GAAP net income (loss) does not include the net gain from the termination of our lease and purchase of the Company's corporate headquarters building;
  • Non-GAAP EPS gives effect to all dilutive awards based on the treasury stock method that were excluded from the GAAP diluted earnings per share calculation;
  • Free cash flow is derived from net cash provided by operating activities less cash spent on capital expenditures, including the purchase of our corporate headquarters building, and removing the excess income tax benefits or costs associated with stock-based awards; and
  • Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate bookings, Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP EPS and free cash flow differently or not at all, which will reduce their usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these limitations, you should consider bookings, Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP EPS, and free cash flow, along with other financial performance measures, including revenue, net income (loss), diluted net loss per share, cash flow from operations and GAAP operating margin and our other financial results presented in accordance with GAAP. See the GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliations below for further details.
