Zynga Enters Into the Mobile Action Strategy Category

Today, Zynga announced it is entering the mobile Action Strategy category with two new titles currently in development across NaturalMotion and Zynga.

Starting with NaturalMotion, today Zynga detailed the upcoming mobile release of Dawn of Titans. The first new game in NaturalMotion's 2015 product pipeline, Dawn of Titans is set in a beautiful world where players command armies of thousands, train titans and lead their alliance to victory. The game leverages NaturalMotion's proprietary mobile technology and engine to create unprecedented mobile visuals, animation and depth-of-gameplay that supersedes anything found today on mobile. Dawn of Titans will enter its first of many geo-lock phases in the coming weeks and is expected to launch globally in 2015.

Next, Zynga is readying the mobile launch of a modern military strategy game, Empires & Allies. The game allows players to take control of the weapons of modern war - tanks, helicopters and warplanes - and deploy the military technology of tomorrow. Empires & Allies is currently in geo-lock in Canada, Australia, New Zealand and India and is slated to launch worldwide in the coming months.

Expands FarmVille Franchise Into Match 3 Category

Zynga also announced today that it is bringing its blockbuster FarmVille brand - which to date has reached nearly 700 million lifetime installs since 2009 - to the Match 3 category with a new title called FarmVille: Harvest Swap. The game marries the fiction of FarmVille with 3D graphics, a progression map and immersive challenges that add new strategic depth to the Match 3 category. FarmVille: Harvest Swap entered geo-lock testing across Canada, Australia and the Philippines and will launch worldwide as a cross-platform mobile and web game in 2015.

Key Operating Metrics:

Please refer to our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 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 acquired NaturalMotion in February 2014.  As a result, the financial information presented in this press release for 2013 does not reflect any contribution from NaturalMotion.

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 loss and non-GAAP net 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 first quarter 2015 outlook for non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

Some limitations of Bookings, Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss per share, and free cash flow:

  • Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net 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 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 loss 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 loss do not include gains and losses associated with significant legal settlements;
  • Non-GAAP net 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 net income (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 net income (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.
