CONWAY, Ark.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Inuvo, Inc.

"The Company’s performance improved significantly in 2013,” stated Richard Howe, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Inuvo. “Not only did we improve profitability in 2013, but we also built a new line of business that has already grown from zero to a $15 million annualized revenue run rate. Fourth quarter results reflect the aggressive transition out of our Toolbar product into higher growth, content based, mobile ready websites and applications.”

- Net revenues for 2013 were $55 million, up 3% from the $53.4 million reported in 2012.
- Operating expenses improved 24% from $34.3 million in 2012 to $26.2 million in 2013.
- Net income improved $7.5 million from a loss of $7 million in 2012 to a profit of $0.5 million in 2013.
- Net income per diluted share improved from a $0.34 loss in 2012 to a $0.02 per share profit 2013.
- AEBITDA improved 50% going from $2.5 million in 2012 to $3.8 million in 2013.
Fourth Quarter 2013 Highlights
- Net Revenues of $11.4 million in 2013 compared to $16.2 million in 2012.
- Operating expenses of $5.6 million in 2013 compared to $9.9 million in 2012.

Inuvo manages the business along two segments, the Partner Network and the Owned and Operated Network and effective with the third quarter 2013, the Company is reporting its results in these two segments. The Partner Network facilitates transactions between advertisers and our partners' websites and applications. The Owned and Operated Network designs, builds and markets consumer websites and applications. This segment includes Inuvo’s mobile-ready ALOT websites and the ALOT Toolbar products. The segments share the utilization of the company’s core technology platform.
Financial results for the Year ended December 31, 2013
Net revenues for 2013 were $55 million, an increase of 3% as compared to $53.4 million reported in 2012. The Partner Network segment revenue increased 39% to $35.9 million over the same period in 2012. Net revenue from the Owned and Operated Network segment was $19.1 million, or 35% of total net revenues.
Gross profit decreased to $26.2 million in the year ended December 31, 2013 compared to $27.7 million of 2012. The lower gross profit in the year reflects the additional payments to partners associated with growth in the Partner segment and a lower contribution from the Owned and Operated segment while we transition out of the ToolBar product.
For the year ended December 31, 2013, Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, increased to $3.8 million compared to $2.5 million in the same period of 2012.
The Company reported net income of $477,000 for the year ended December 31, 2013 or $0.02 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $7 million or a $0.34 per share loss for the last year.
Three-month financial results for the period ended December 31, 2013
Net revenues for the three months ended December 31, 2013, were $11.4 million, as compared to the $16.2 million reported in the three months ended December 31, 2012. Gross profit was $5.3 million in the three months ended December 31, 2013 compared to $8.8 million for the same period of 2012. Lower year over year results were due primarily to the transition to our owned websites and application and away from Toolbar products.
For the quarter ended December 31, 2013, Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, decreased to $79 thousand compared to $1.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. The Company reported a net loss of $253,000, or $0.01 per diluted share, for the three months ended December 31, 2013, compared to a net loss of $864,000, or $0.04 per share loss, for the corresponding period last year. Net income was adversely impacted by a $263,000 one-time reserve related to our transition away from publishers that focus heavily on marketing models with non-standard traffic sources.
The Company's consolidated financial statements as of December 31, 2013 include the financial results of its Vertro subsidiary from March 2012 forward; the prior year periods do not contain financial results of the Vertro subsidiary for the first two months of 2012. Net income includes various adjustments and charges to the company’s discontinued operations in Europe. In the fourth quarter and full year of 2013, this had a favorable effect on net income of $46,000 and $504,000, respectively. In the fourth quarter and full year of 2012, adjustments to the company’s discontinued operations in Europe had an unfavorable effect on net income of $41,000 and $184,000, respectively.

Reconciliation of Net Loss from Continuing Operations before Taxes 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 income (loss) from continuing operations before taxes plus (i) interest expense, net, (ii) depreciation, (iii) amortization, (iv) stock-based compensation, (v) accrued severance and other noncash expense (vi) indirect costs incurred due to the merger with Vertro. 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.
