Zynga Announces Third Quarter 2014 Financial Results

DELIVERS $175M IN BOOKINGS AND $2M IN ADJUSTED EBITDA

ZYNGA REAFFIRMS FULL YEAR 2014 OUTLOOK FOR BOOKINGS AND ADJUSTED EBITDA

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 6, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zynga Inc. (Nasdaq:ZNGA), a leading social game developer, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2014.

"I am encouraged by the results of the quarter as we navigate through this time of transition. In Q3, we reported bookings at the high end of our guidance range and Adjusted EBITDA near the midpoint of our guidance range. Our teams have been working hard over the last year to reshape our business and we are seeing that work show up in two important areas - our franchise bookings and mobile bookings growth. Last quarter, our core franchises - Casino, Words With Friends and FarmVille - grew 30 percent year over year in terms of bookings, and we achieved meaningful growth in mobile with a 111 percent increase in mobile bookings annually," said Don Mattrick, CEO, Zynga. "We have been operating with purpose and it has taken us some time to transform our business as we faced some execution challenges in the quarter. 2014 has been an investment year for us as we assembled a new leadership team, reorganized the company and reset our product pipeline. As we move forward and aggressively compete in an exciting market, we continue to believe that we are well positioned to take advantage of our global scale and diversified product portfolio, and we remain committed to working together as a team to deliver long term value for our consumers, employees and shareholders."

Recent Business Highlights

  • Generated bookings of $175 million, Adjusted EBITDA of $2 million and Non-GAAP net loss of $7 million, performing within our outlook range.
  • Delivered a 111% increase in mobile bookings year over year and a 10% increase quarter over quarter. In terms of platform mix, mobile bookings represented 55% of total bookings, up 5% from the second quarter of 2014.

Recent Product Highlights

Key Operating Metrics:

Please refer to our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 for definitions of "DAU," "MAU," "MUU," "MUP" and "ABPU."

MUUs and MUPs in this press release exclude MUUs and MUPs from NaturalMotion as the necessary data is not yet available.

We manage our business by tracking several operating metrics: "DAUs," which measure daily active users of our games, "MAUs," which measure monthly active users of our games, "MUUs," which measure monthly unique users of our games, "MUPs," which measure monthly unique payers in our games, and "ABPU," which measures our average daily bookings per average DAU. The operating metrics described above are recorded by our internal analytics systems. The numbers for these operating metrics are calculated using internal company data based on tracking the activity of user accounts. We believe that the numbers are reasonable estimates of our user base for the applicable period of measurement; however, factors relating to user activity and systems may impact these numbers.

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 effective tax rate outlook to GAAP effective tax rate or non-GAAP earnings (loss) per share, 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 fourth quarter 2014 outlook for non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

Some limitations of bookings, Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP earnings (loss) per share, 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 transaction expenses, contingent consideration fair value adjustments 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 and interest income;
  • 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 earnings (loss) per share gives effect to all dilutive awards based on the treasury stock method that were excluded from the GAAP diluted earnings per share calculation in periods when non-GAAP net income (loss) is positive and GAAP net income (loss) is negative;
  • Free cash flow is derived from net cash provided by operating activities less cash spent on capital expenditures, 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 earnings (loss) per share 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 earnings (loss) per share, 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.
