Marchex, Inc. (NASDAQ:MCHX), a mobile advertising technology company, today announced it is updating its outlook for the first quarter of the year ending December 31, 2014.
“The momentum continues to build in our business as we provide clear mobile measurement and deliver strong performance to our clients,” said Russell Horowitz, Chairman and CEO of Marchex. “The combination of Marchex’s ability to deliver high quality calls from our Call Marketplace combined with the insight we can deliver through our Call Analytics platform is helping us gain mindshare as a performance leader. We are excited about our progress as we start off the year and look forward to continuing to execute for our clients over the course of 2014.”
The following forward-looking statements reflect Marchex’s expectations as of March 19, 2014 and exclude any contribution from Archeo operations, domain sales and discontinued operations and updates the guidance previously provided on February 19, 2014. Archeo operating results would be incremental and additive to our Call-Driven revenue, profitability, and other measures below:
Call-Driven financial guidance for the First Quarter ending March 31, 2014
|Call-Driven Revenue||$42 million or more, up from $40 million or more|
|Call-Driven Adjusted OIBA 1||$1.5-$2.1 million, up from $1-$2 million|
|Call-Driven Adjusted EBITDA 1||$2.5-$3.1 million, up from $2-$3 million|
1 These non-GAAP Call-Driven measures assign all Marchex indirect overhead costs to the Call-Driven results.
Marchex plans on updating its outlook for the full year ending December 31, 2014 in early May in connection with its release of financial results for the first quarter of 2014.

Non-GAAP Financial Information:
To supplement Marchex’s consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP and to provide clarity internally and externally, Marchex uses certain non-GAAP measures of financial performance and liquidity, including OIBA, Adjusted OIBA, and Adjusted EBITDA. Marchex also provides Call-Driven Adjusted OIBA and EBITDA. This press release includes an estimated range of Call-Driven Revenue and Call-Driven Adjusted OIBA and EBITDA for the first quarter of 2014.
OIBA represents income (loss) from operations plus (1) stock-based compensation expense and (2) amortization of intangible assets from acquisitions. This measure, among other things, is one of the primary metrics by which Marchex evaluates the performance of its business. Additionally, Marchex’s management uses Adjusted OIBA, which excludes any gain/loss on sales and disposals of intangible assets for each asset and acquisition and separation related costs as these items are not indicative of Marchex’s recurring core operating results and any domain sales contribution. Adjusted OIBA is the basis on which Marchex’s internal budgets are based and by which Marchex’s management is currently evaluated. Marchex believes these measures are useful to investors because they represent Marchex’s consolidated operating results, taking into account depreciation and other intangible amortization, which Marchex believes is an ongoing cost of doing business, but excluding the effects of certain other expenses or gain/loss such as stock-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets from acquisitions, acquisition and separation related costs, domain sales contribution and gain/loss on sales and disposals of intangible assets. Adjusted EBITDA represents income (loss) before interest, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock compensation expense, acquisition and separation related cost, domain sales contribution and gain/loss on sales and disposals of intangible assets. Marchex believes that Adjusted EBITDA is another alternative measure of liquidity to GAAP net cash provided by operating activities that provides meaningful supplemental information regarding liquidity and is used by Marchex’s management to measure its ability to fund operations and its financing obligations. Call-Driven Adjusted OIBA and EBITDA includes the above descriptions of Adjusted OIBA and EBITDA for the Call-Driven segment. The Call-Driven Adjusted OIBA and EBITDA assigns all Marchex indirect overhead costs to the Call-Driven results.
Marchex’s management believes that investors should have access to, and Marchex is obligated to provide, the same set of tools that management uses in analyzing the company’s results. These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered in isolation, as a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. Marchex’s non-GAAP financial measures may be defined differently from time to time and may be defined differently than similar titled terms used by other companies, and accordingly, care should be exercised in understanding how Marchex defines its non-GAAP financial measures in this release. Marchex endeavors to compensate for the limitations of the non-GAAP measures presented by providing the comparable GAAP measure with equal or greater prominence, GAAP financial statements, and detailed descriptions of the reconciling items and adjustments, including quantifying such items, to derive the non-GAAP measure.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
