Business Highlights

  • Launched the redesigned AreYouInterested.com product to all users in August 2012;
  • Monthly Active Users (MAUs) on the AreYouInterested.com app on Facebook Platform totaled 5.29 million as of September 30, 2012; and
  • Averaged over 450,000 daily sessions or visits to our mobile AreYouInterested.com platforms (including iPhone, mobile web, and Android sessions) during the third quarter of 2012

Management Commentary

"The third quarter marked the beginning of a new phase for SNAP as we successfully re-launched AreYouInterested.com as a social discovery product," said SNAP's President and Chief Executive Officer, Clifford Lerner. "I believe we achieved our goal of completely rebuilding and re-launching the product while conserving cash and maintaining a strong balance sheet position during the transition. Toward the end of the quarter we moved into the testing and rapid optimization phase of the re-launch and that process has continued in earnest during the fourth quarter of 2012. We have made meaningful progress with these optimizations and I look forward to communicating some of these exciting developments to investors over the coming weeks and months."  

SNAP's Chief Financial Officer Jon D. Pedersen, Sr. added, "Consistent with our approach during the second quarter, we significantly reduced our rate of spend on traffic acquisition during the third quarter as we were primarily focused on the launch, testing and optimization of the redesigned AreYouInterested.com product.  In turn, this resulted in decreased revenue, bookings, and a decrease in our number of active subscribers as compared to the second quarter of 2012. We expect to increase our advertising and marketing expenditures from current levels towards the end of the fourth quarter 2012 and into the first quarter of 2013 as we begin to build a brand around the redesigned product."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We have provided in this release non-GAAP financial information such as bookings as a supplement to the consolidated financial statements, which are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"). Management uses this non-GAAP financial measure internally in analyzing our financial results to assess operational performance. The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. We believe that both management and investors benefit from referring to this non-GAAP financial measure in assessing our performance and when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. We believe this non-GAAP financial measure is useful to investors because it allows for greater transparency with respect to key financial metrics we use in making operating decisions and because our investors and analysts use such information to help assess the health of our business.

Some limitations of bookings as a financial measure include that:

  • Bookings does not reflect that we defer and recognize revenue from subscription fees and premium sales over the length of the subscription term; and
  • Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate bookings differently or choose not to calculate bookings at all, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these limitations, you should consider bookings along with other financial performance measures, including total revenues, deferred revenue, net income (loss) and our financial results presented in accordance with GAAP
