FULL YEAR RESULTS

Revenue

Full year revenue of $623.3 million increased $66.1 million or 11.9% as compared to 2017, driven by positive year-over-year growth in both our e-commerce and enterprise channels. During 2018, we made progress on initiatives focused on broadening our product offerings, adding functionality to our creative platform, enhancing our workflow tools and increasing our sales and marketing efforts. These initiatives had the impact of attracting more users and promoting increased customer engagement across our platform, resulting in a 4.4% increase in the number of paid downloads. Changes in our product mix drove an 8.6% increase in revenue per download.

Excluding the impact from Webdam, which was sold in the first quarter of 2018 (the "Sale of Webdam"), revenue growth was approximately 14.7% for 2018 compared to 2017. Revenue growth on a constant currency basis was approximately 10.7% and revenue growth excluding the impact from Webdam on a constant currency basis was approximately 13.5% for 2018 compared to 2017.

Revenue generated through our e-commerce platform increased 10.0% as compared to the full year 2017, to $365.7 million, and represented 58.7% of total revenue in 2018. Revenue from enterprise customers increased approximately 22.1% as compared to 2017, to $254.8 million, and represented 40.9% of total revenue in 2018. Other 2018 revenue of $2.7 million was generated from Webdam.

Income from Operations

Income from operations of $32.5 million increased $6.1 million or 23% as compared to the full year 2017, resulting from revenue growth outpacing operating expense growth. Operating expenses increased $60.0 million or 11.3%, primarily as a result of increased expenditures for royalties, sales and marketing, and costs associated with product development enhancements, partially offset by a decline in general and administrative expenses. The decline in general and administrative expenses was driven by cost management measures and a $2.0 million benefit from the reduction of our indirect tax accruals.

Net Income

Net income of $54.7 million, or $1.54 per diluted share, increased $38.0 million as compared to $16.7 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, for the full year 2017. This increase is due primarily to a gain of approximately $27.6 million, or $0.78 per diluted share, net of tax, related to the Sale of Webdam, growth in income from operations and a reduction in the effective tax rate, partially offset by an impairment charge of $4.9 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, net of tax, related to our long-term investment in SilverHub Media Limited ("SHM").

The lower effective tax rate during 2018 was primarily a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act ("TCJA"), which, among other changes, lowered the U.S. statutory federal tax rate from 35% to 21% effective January 1, 2018.

Adjusted EBITDA

2018 adjusted EBITDA of $105.1 million increased $17.1 million or 19% as compared to the full year 2017, driven primarily by growth in revenues, continued cost management measures and a $2.0 million benefit from the reduction of our indirect tax accruals. We define adjusted EBITDA as net income adjusted for foreign currency transaction gains and losses, expenses related to long-term incentives and contingent consideration related to acquisitions, interest income and expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, disposals of property and equipment, charges related to the impairment of a long-term investment asset, non-cash equity-based compensation and the gain on Sale of Webdam.

Adjusted Net Income

Adjusted net income was $55.7 million, or $1.57 per diluted share, for the full year as compared to $40.8 million, or $1.16 per diluted share, for the full year 2017, an increase of $15 million or 36%. We define adjusted net income as net income excluding the impact of non-cash equity-based compensation, the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, expenses related to long-term incentives and contingent consideration related to acquisitions, the gain on Sale of Webdam, the impairment of a long-term investment asset, the estimated tax impact of such adjustments, and a one-time tax expense due to the TCJA.

FOURTH QUARTER RESULTS

Revenue

Revenue of $162.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2018 increased $10.2 million, or 6.7%, as compared to the fourth quarter of 2017, driven by positive year-over-year growth in both our e-commerce and enterprise channels. Excluding the impact from Webdam, revenue growth was 10.1% in the fourth quarter of 2018, as compared to the fourth quarter of 2017. Revenue growth on a constant currency basis was approximately 7.9% and revenue growth excluding the impact from Webdam on a constant currency basis was approximately 11.3%, in the fourth quarter of 2018, as compared to the fourth quarter of 2017. The number of paid downloads increased by 6.6% and changes in our product mix drove a 2.1% increase in revenue per download.

Revenue generated through our e-commerce platform increased approximately 8.8% as compared to the fourth quarter of 2017, to $95.6 million, representing 59.0% of total revenue in the fourth quarter of 2018. Revenue from enterprise customers increased approximately 12.1% as compared to 2017, to $66.5 million, representing 41.0% of total revenue in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Income from Operations

Income from operations of $15.6 million increased $8.4 million, or 117.5%, as compared to the fourth quarter of 2017, resulting from revenue growth outpacing operating expense growth. Operating expenses increased $1.8 million, or 1.2%, primarily as a result of increased expenditures for royalties, sales and marketing and costs associated with product development enhancements, partially offset by a decline in general and administrative expenses. The decline in general and administrative expenses was driven by cost management measures and a $2.0 million benefit from the reduction of our indirect tax accruals.

Net Income

Net income of $14.9 million, or $0.42 per diluted share, increased $12.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2018 as compared with $2.1 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2017, primarily driven by the growth in income from operations, and a reduction in the effective tax rate in the reporting period.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA of $33.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2018 increased $10.6 million, or 46%, as compared to the fourth quarter of 2017, driven primarily by growth in revenues, continued cost management measures and a $2.0 million benefit from the reduction of our indirect tax accruals.

Adjusted Net Income

Adjusted net income was $20.9 million, or $0.59 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2018 as compared to $10.6 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2017, an increase of $10.3 million, or 97%.

LIQUIDITY

Our cash and cash equivalents decreased by $22.6 million to $230.9 million at December 31, 2018, as compared with $253.4 million at December 31, 2017. This decrease primarily reflects $104.9 million of cash paid for a special non-recurring dividend in August 2018, $34.9 million of capital expenditures and a $15.0 million long-term investment in ZCool Network Technology Limited, our exclusive distributor of creative content in China. These cash expenditures were partially offset by $102.2 million of net cash generated by our operations and approximately $41.8 million of net proceeds to date from the Sale of Webdam.

We paid net cash taxes of $0.6 million in the year ended December 31, 2018, compared to $5.0 million paid during 2017.

Free cash flow was $63.5 million for 2018, an increase of $13.5 million from 2017. This change was primarily driven by lower capital expenditures, partially offset by a decrease in cash provided by operations. Free cash flow is defined as cash provided by operating activities adjusted for capital expenditures and content acquisition.

STOCK REPURCHASE PROGRAM

During the fourth quarter of 2018, we did not repurchase shares of our stock pursuant to our existing stock repurchase program. From the inception of this program through December 31, 2018, we have repurchased 2.6 million shares of our stock for a total of $100 million under the stock repurchase program at an average per-share price of $39.09. As of December 31, 2018, there remains $100 million authorized for purchases under our stock repurchase program.

The stock repurchase program, which commenced in November 2015, authorizes the Company to purchase shares of our stock from time to time through open market purchases or privately negotiated transactions at prevailing prices as permitted by securities laws and other legal requirements. The timing and amount of any future share repurchases will be determined by our management based on its evaluation of market conditions and other factors. The repurchase program may be modified, suspended or discontinued at any time.

FINANCIAL OUTLOOK

The Company's current expectations for the full year 2019, are as follows:

  • Revenue of between $685 and $695 million, representing growth of 10% to 12%.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of between $118 million and $123 million, representing growth of 12% to 17%.
  • Income from operations of between $37 million and $47 million.
  • Non-cash equity-based compensation expense of approximately $25 million.
  • Capital expenditures, including capitalized labor, of approximately $37 million.
  • Effective tax rate in low to mid 20's%.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

In addition to reporting results in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), Shutterstock also refers to adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, revenue growth on a constant currency basis, revenue excluding the impact of Webdam, revenue growth excluding the impact of Webdam on a constant currency basis, adjusted EBITDA margin and free cash flow.

Shutterstock defines adjusted EBITDA as net income adjusted for foreign currency transaction gains and losses, expenses related to long-term incentives and contingent consideration related to acquisitions, interest income and expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, disposals of property and equipment, impairment of a long-term investment asset, non-cash equity-based compensation and the gain on the Sale of Webdam; adjusted net income as net income excluding the impact of non-cash equity-based compensation, the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, expenses related to long-term incentives and contingent consideration related to acquisitions, the gain on Sale of Webdam, the impairment of a long-term investment asset, the estimated tax impact of such adjustments, and the impact of one-time tax expense due to the TCJA; revenue growth on a constant currency basis as the increase in current period revenues over prior period revenues, utilizing fixed exchange rates for translating foreign currency revenues for all periods in the comparison; revenue excluding the impact of Webdam as total Company revenue for each period presented less the amount of revenue generated by the Webdam business during that period; revenue growth excluding the impact of Webdam on a constant currency basis as total Company revenue for each period presented, less the amount of revenue generated by the Webdam business during that period utilizing fixed exchange rates for translating foreign currency revenues for both periods; adjusted EBITDA margin as the ratio of adjusted EBITDA to revenue; and free cash flow as cash provided by operating activities, adjusted for capital expenditures and content acquisition. These figures have not been calculated in accordance with GAAP and should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. We caution investors that non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and are not necessarily comparable to similarly-titled measures presented by other companies.

Management believes that adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, revenue excluding the impact of Webdam, revenue growth on a constant currency basis, revenue excluding the impact of Webdam on a constant currency basis, adjusted EBITDA margin and free cash flow are useful to investors to provide them with disclosures of Shutterstock's operating results on the same basis as that used by management. Additionally, management believes that adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income provide useful information to investors about the performance of the Company's overall business because such measures eliminate the effects of unusual or other infrequent charges that are not directly attributable to Shutterstock's underlying operating performance; with respect to revenue growth on a constant currency basis, this provides useful information to investors by eliminating the effect of foreign currency fluctuations that are not directly attributable to Shutterstock's business; and with respect to revenue excluding the impact of Webdam, revenue growth excluding the impact of Webdam (expressed as a percentage) and revenue growth excluding the impact of Webdam on a constant currency basis (expressed as a percentage), these provide useful information to investors by eliminating the impact of a historical revenue source that is not part of our current business and, as applicable, also provides useful information to investors by eliminating the effect of foreign currency fluctuations that are not directly attributable to Shutterstock's ongoing business. Additionally, management believes that providing these non-GAAP financial measures enhances the comparability for investors in assessing Shutterstock's financial reporting. Management believes that free cash flow is useful for investors because it provides them with an important perspective on the cash available for strategic measures, after making necessary capital investments in property and equipment to support the Company's ongoing business operations and provides them with the same measures that management uses as the basis for making resource allocation decisions.

Shutterstock's management also uses the non-GAAP financial measures adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, revenue excluding the impact of Webdam, revenue growth on a constant currency basis, revenue growth excluding the impact of Webdam on a constant currency basis, adjusted EBITDA margin and free cash flow, in conjunction with GAAP financial measures, as an integral part of managing the business and to: (i) monitor and evaluate the performance of Shutterstock's business operations, financial performance and overall liquidity; (ii) facilitate management's internal comparisons of the historical operating performance of its business operations; (iii) facilitate management's external comparisons of the results of its overall business to the historical operating performance of other companies that may have different capital structures and debt levels; (iv) review and assess the operating performance of Shutterstock's management team and, together with other operational objectives, as a measure in evaluating employee compensation and bonuses; (v) analyze and evaluate financial and strategic planning decisions regarding future operating investments; and (vi) plan for and prepare future annual operating budgets and determine appropriate levels of operating investments.

A reconciliation of the differences between adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, revenue excluding the impact of Webdam and free cash flow, and the most comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, is presented under the heading "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Information to GAAP" immediately following the Consolidated Balance Sheets. We do not provide a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA guidance to net income guidance, as the impact of net non-operating foreign currency exchange gains or losses which are excluded from adjusted EBITDA is inherently uncertain and difficult to estimate and is unavailable without unreasonable efforts. In addition, we believe such reconciliations would imply a degree of precision that would be confusing or misleading to investors.
