Inuvo Reports 2010 Third Quarter Financial Results
Revenue Increases 53% Over Third Quarter 2009
CLEARWATER, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Inuvo(R), Inc. (NYSE Amex: INUV), an online technology and services company, announced today its financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2010.
Inuvo reported today revenue of $14.3 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2010, a 53% increase from the same quarter last year and a 26% increase over the immediate prior quarter this year. The Company also reported that the technology focused Exchange segment grew 87% in revenue over the same quarter in 2009. For the nine months ended September 30, 2010, the Company's revenue was 16% higher than the same period last year.
Richard K. Howe, Inuvo's CEO said, "The third quarter was another solid showing for Inuvo. We entered 2010 with a $9.6 million quarterly run rate and we exit Q3 at $14.3 million. This 49% increase over these three periods places our growth rate well ahead of our peer group average. The team is executing well, and we are excited about our progress."
Gross profit was up 63% in the third quarter to $5.8 million and 40.8% of revenue compared to $3.6 million or 38.3% of revenue for the same quarter last year. For the nine-month period ended September 30, 2010, gross profit was $13.6 million or 38.8% of revenue compared to $11.1 million or 36.7% of revenue for the same nine-month period last year.
The net loss from continuing operations for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 was $322,000 compared to a net loss of $1.5 million for the same period last year. The net loss including discontinued operations for the third quarter was $2.2 million compared to a $2 million loss for the same period last year. The current year's net loss including discontinued operations is largely due to a $1.5 million loss resulting from the sale of the advertising agency operations. Contributing to the net loss in the third quarter of 2010 was a charge of $129,000 to increase the allowance for doubtful accounts. For the nine-month period ended September 30, 2010, the net loss from continuing operations was $3.4 million compared to a net loss of $4.2 million for the same period last year. The net loss including discontinued operations for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2010 was $4.3 million compared to $3.6 million for the same period last year.
Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure was $1.2 million in the third quarter of this year compared to $52,000 in the same quarter last year. The adjusted EBITDA for the nine-month period this year was $1.4 million compared to $490,000 for the comparable period last year.
Bank debt has been decreased since the start of the year by $3.2 million to $5 million at the end of the third quarter.

Reconciliation of Net Loss from Continuing Operations to Adjusted EBITDA
In addition to disclosing financial results in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), our earnings release contains the non-GAAP financial measure "Adjusted EBITDA."
Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of performance defined in accordance with GAAP. However, management believes that Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors in evaluating the Company's performance because Adjusted EBITDA is a commonly used financial analysis tool for measuring and comparing companies in the Company's industry in areas of operating performance.
Management believes that the disclosure of Adjusted EBITDA offers an additional view of the Company's operations that, when coupled with the GAAP results and the reconciliation to GAAP net loss, provides a more complete understanding of the Company's results of operations and the factors and trends affecting the Company's business.
We present Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure of our performance. We defined Adjusted EBITDA as net loss from continuing operations plus (i) interest expense, net, (ii) provision for taxes, (iii) depreciation and amortization, and (iv) stock based compensation. These further adjustments are itemized above. You are encouraged to evaluate these adjustments and the reasons we consider them appropriate for supplemental analysis. In evaluating Adjusted EBITDA, you should be aware that in the future we may incur expenses that are the same or similar to some of the adjustments in the presentation. Our presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items.
