In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...

Perion Completes Accretive Acquisition of SweetPacks

Perion Network Ltd. (NASDAQ: PERI) today announced that it has closed its previously announced acquisition of SweetIM (a.k.a. “SweetPacks”), a consumer internet company that produces a variety of free, fun and safe apps for everyday use.

“After three weeks of working closely with the SweetPacks management team, we are even more convinced that this acquisition will help take Perion to the next level and we are now focused on executing the integration plan,” commented Josef Mandelbaum, Perion’s Chief Executive Officer.

Mr. Mandelbaum continued, “Based on the continued strength of our organic business, and the incremental contribution of one month of SweetPacks, we will exceed our full-year guidance, and are well positioned for significant growth in both revenue and profitability in 2013. This acquisition will provide us with meaningful scale and increased profitability and will strengthen our competitive advantage.”

Perion made an initial payment of $10 million in cash and 1.99 million Perion shares to the shareholders of SweetPacks on November 30, 2012. A second payment of $7.5 million in cash is due 12 months after closing. A third, conditional payment of $7.5 million in cash is due 18 months after closing, subject to certain milestones and achievements.

Previous guidance on a non-GAAP basis for 2012 was: revenues of $55 million, EBITDA of $12 million and Net Income of $9 million.

Non-GAAP measures

Non-GAAP financial measures consist of GAAP financial measures adjusted to exclude: Valuation adjustment on acquired deferred product revenues, amortization of acquired intangible assets, share-based compensation expenses, acquisition related expenses, deferred finance expenses and non-recurring tax benefits. Perion also uses Adjusted EBITDA as a non-GAAP financial performance measurement. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated by adding back to net income: Valuation adjustment on acquired deferred product revenues, acquisition related expenses, interest, taxes, stock-based compensation, depreciation and amortization and one-time expenses (credits). The purpose of such adjustments is to give an indication of performance exclusive of non-cash charges and other items that are considered by management to be outside of core operating results. Our non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures, and should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our management regularly uses our supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate our business and make operating decisions. These non-GAAP measures are among the primary factors management uses in planning for and forecasting future periods. Business combination accounting rules requires us to recognize a legal performance obligation related to a revenue arrangement of an acquired entity. The amount assigned to that liability should be based on its fair value at the date of acquisition. The non-GAAP adjustment is intended to reflect the full amount of such revenue. We believe this adjustment is useful to investors as a measure of the ongoing performance of our business. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide consistent and comparable measures to help investors understand our current and future operating cash flow performance. These non-GAAP financial measures may differ materially from the non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.
