Commenting on the company's performance, founder and CEO Jon Oringer said, "We had a strong finish to 2017, seeing customer engagement at an all-time high – both in the number of paid downloads and the number of active users on our sites. Our investments in our technology and products combined with pricing and packaging optimization across our entire platform are enabling our customers to search, discover and license the perfect content to meet their needs better and faster than ever before. In 2017, with the addition of Shutterstock Custom, we took steps to provide our customers with custom content creation capabilities for their specific brand use-cases. We've helped streamline our customers' workflows through plug-ins and features including our ever improving editing tool, Shutterstock Editor; and we broke new ground with our enhanced AI-driven search and discovery tools, all with the goal of delivering on our commitment to meet our customers' broad array of unique content needs. Through our innovation and execution, we continue to attract new customers and expand our workflow product offerings and penetrate deeper into international markets. Earlier this year, we celebrated a milestone of having 1 billion licenses to date and we believe we are well-positioned for strong, profitable growth in 2018 and beyond."

FULL YEAR RESULTS

Revenue

Full year revenue of $557.1 million increased $62.8 million or 12.7% as compared to 2016, driven by continued growth in our customer base resulting from the continued expansion of our product offerings to meet the needs of a more diverse customer base and increased activity by our enterprise customers. These factors also drove a 9% increase in revenue per download and a 2% increase in the number of paid downloads. Foreign currency movements had virtually no impact on the revenue growth from 2016 to 2017.

Revenue generated through our e-commerce platform increased approximately 6.0% as compared to 2016, to $348.0 million or 62.5% of total revenue in 2017. Revenue from direct sales to enterprise customers increased approximately 24.1% as compared to 2016, to $186.0 million or 33.4% of total revenue in 2017. Revenue from our other sales channels, including Webdam and content sold through application program interfaces increased approximately 44.4% as compared to 2016, to $23.1 million or 4.1% of total revenue in 2017.

Income from Operations

Income from operations of $26.3 million decreased $19.4 million or 42% as compared to the full year 2016. This decrease is driven by increased operating expenses during the year, which were partially offset by the full year revenue growth. Operating expense increases were primarily due to costs associated with increased employee expenses, sales and marketing expenses, and additional costs related to technology and infrastructure enhancements, including depreciation.

Net Income

Net income available to common stockholders of $16.7 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, decreased $15.9 million as compared to $32.6 million, or $0.91 per diluted share, for the full year 2016, primarily due to the decline in Income from Operations and an increase in the effective tax rate, partially offset by favorable non-operating foreign exchange impact and the impact of contingent consideration expenses in 2016 that did not recur in 2017. The higher effective tax rate during 2017 was primarily a result of recently enacted tax legislation, commonly known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act ("TCJA"), which, among other things, required a non-cash devaluation of our deferred tax assets and a one-time tax on earnings held in jurisdictions outside of the United States.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA of $88.0 million for the full year decreased $7.4 million or 8% as compared to the full year 2016, driven primarily by cost increases during 2017 related to our continued technology and infrastructure enhancements. 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, and non-cash equity-based compensation.

Adjusted Net Income

Adjusted net income was $40.8 million, or $1.16 per diluted share, for the full year as compared to $55.2 million, or $1.54 per diluted share, for the full year 2016. We define adjusted net income as net income excluding the impact of one-time tax charges related to the enactment of the TCJA, non-cash equity-based compensation, amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, expenses related to long-term incentives and contingent consideration related to acquisitions and the estimated tax impact of such adjustments.


FOURTH QUARTER RESULTS

Revenue

Revenue of $151.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2017 increased $21.7 million, or 16.6%, as compared to the fourth quarter of 2016. This increase is attributable to our continued growth in enterprise sales, as well as increased customer acquisition through our e-commerce platform. Excluding the impact of foreign currency movements, revenue growth was approximately 13.9% in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Revenue generated through our e-commerce platform increased approximately 9.7% as compared to the fourth quarter of 2016, to $92.4 million or 60.8% of total revenue in the fourth quarter of 2017. Revenue from direct sales to enterprise customers increased approximately 25.8% as compared to 2016, to $51.9 million or 34.2% of total revenue in 2017. Revenue from our other sales channels, including Webdam and content sold through application program interfaces increased approximately 60.2% as compared to 2016, to $7.5 million or 5.0% of total revenue in 2017.

Income from Operations

Income from operations of $7.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2017 decreased $6.0 million, or 46%, as compared to the fourth quarter of 2016, due primarily to increases in employee cash compensation expenses and depreciation and amortization expense. These increases are attributable to the Company's ongoing investments in improving its technology platform and operations.

Net Income

Net income of $2.1 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2017 decreased $7.8 million, or 79%, as compared with $9.9 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2016 primarily due to the decline in Income from Operations and the increase in effective tax rate during the fourth quarter of 2017 compared to 2016, driven in large part by the Company's adoption of the TCJA.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA of $23.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2017 decreased $2.6 million or 10%, as compared to the fourth quarter of 2016 driven primarily by the Company's investment in its smaller but high-growth products and markets. 

Adjusted Net Income                                                                                                              

Adjusted net income was $10.6 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2017 as compared to $15.1 million or $0.42 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2016.


LIQUIDITY

Our cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments decreased by $25.7 million to $253.4 million at December 31, 2017 as compared with $279.2 million at December 31, 2016. This decrease reflects approximately $49.6 million of cash used to acquire Flashstock (now known as Shutterstock Custom), $25.0 million of cash used to repurchase shares of the Company's outstanding common stock, $55.1 million of cash used for capital expenditures and a payment of contingent consideration of $10.0 million related to the 2015 acquisition of PremiumBeat, which were partially offset by cash generated from operations. Cash taxes paid in 2017 were $5.0 million in compared to $19.2 million in 2016.

Free cash flow was $18.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2017, an increase of $9.2 million from the fourth quarter of 2016. This change was primarily driven by increased cash from operations partially offset by slight increases in capital expenditures and cash used to acquire content. 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 2017, we did not repurchase shares of our stock pursuant to our existing stock repurchase program. From the inception of this program through December 31, 2017, we have repurchased 2.6 million shares of our stock for a total of $100.0 million under the stock repurchase program at an average per-share price of $39.09. As of December 31, 2017, there remains $100 million available for purchases under our share repurchase program.

The stock repurchase program, which commenced in November 2015, authorizes management to purchase shares 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.

FIRST QUARTER 2018 STRATEGIC TRANSACTIONS

On January 4, 2018, the Company invested $15.0 million in convertible preferred shares issued by Zcool Network Technology Limited ("Zcool"), which is equivalent to a 25% fully diluted equity ownership interest, to further expand the Company's presence in fast-growing markets. Zcool's primary business is the operation of an e-commerce platform in China whereby customers can pay to license content contributed by creative professionals. Zcool has been the exclusive distributor of Shutterstock creative content in China since 2014.

On February 15, 2018, Shutterstock entered into an agreement to sell certain assets constituting its digital asset management business, known as Webdam, under which the buyer has agreed to assume certain contracts and liabilities of Webdam, for an aggregate purchase price of $49.1 million, payable in cash, and subject to certain customary closing adjustments for a transaction of this kind. We purchased Webdam in March 2014 for $14.4 million.  For the year ended December 31, 2017, Webdam revenues were approximately $16.2 million and Adjusted EBITDA attributable to Webdam for 2017 was not material.

FINANCIAL OUTLOOK

The Company's current expectations for the full year 2018, excluding the contribution of Webdam, are as follows:

  • Revenue of $625 - $635 million, representing growth of approximately 15% - 17%
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $105 - $110 million, representing growth of approximately 19% - 25%
  • Income from Operations of $30 - $35 million
  • Non-cash equity-based compensation expense of approximately $28 million
  • Capital expenditures, including capitalized labor, of approximately $48 million
  • Effective tax rate in 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, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted EBITDA growth on a constant currency basis 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 and non-cash equity-based compensation; adjusted net income as net income excluding the impact of one-time tax charges related to the enactment of the TCJA, the impact of non-cash equity-based compensation, the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets and expenses related to long-term incentives and contingent consideration related to acquisitions and the estimated tax impact of such adjustments; revenue growth on a constant currency basis (expressed as a percentage) as the increase in current period revenues over prior period revenues, utilizing fixed exchange rates for translating foreign currency revenues for both periods; adjusted EBITDA margin (expressed as a percentage) as the ratio of adjusted EBITDA to revenue; adjusted EBITDA growth on a constant currency basis (expressed as a percentage) as the increase in current period adjusted EBITDA over prior period adjusted EBITDA, utilizing fixed exchange rates for translating foreign currency revenues and expenses for both periods; and free cash flow as cash provided by/(used in) 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 growth on a constant currency basis, adjusted EBITDA margin and adjusted EBITDA growth on a constant currency basis 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 and, with respect to revenue growth and adjusted EBITDA growth on a constant currency basis, provide useful information to investors by eliminating the effect of foreign currency fluctuations that are not directly attributable to Shutterstock's 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 growth on a constant currency basis, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted EBITDA growth on a constant currency basis 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, 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.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Information to GAAP

(In thousands, except per share information)

Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and free cash flow are not financial measures under United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Such non-GAAP financial measures should not be construed as alternatives to any other measures of performance determined in accordance with GAAP. 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.
