Based on information available as of today, Millennial Media expects total revenue for the second quarter of 2014 to be in the range of $70 million to $75 million and Adjusted EBITDA to be a loss between $(5) million and $(6) million.
“Now into my first full quarter, I am pleased with my decision to join Millennial Media and drive this Company to the next level,” said Michael Barrett, President and CEO, Millennial Media. “While I would have liked to have seen stronger performance in the quarter, we have developed an aggressive strategy and I have high confidence that we can execute and capitalize on the growth and promise of mobile.”
EVP and CFO Michael Avon Steps Down
In addition, the Company today announced that Michael Avon, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, will step down from his position at the end of the second quarter of 2014 to pursue other career interests. Mr. Avon began his relationship with Millennial Media as a venture investor at Columbia Capital, where he led the Company’s first round of financing in 2006. As the Company began to grow, he joined as EVP & CFO in the fall of 2009 and remained in that role for the last four and a half years. He will continue to serve Millennial Media in an advisory role for a transitional period after he steps down as CFO.
The Company has begun a search for a permanent replacement to fill this role.
"I want to thank Michael for his many contributions to Millennial Media over the nearly eight years he has been involved with the Company," said Barrett. "Michael has been a key contributor to Millennial Media’s success. He was instrumental in the Company's initial public offering in 2012, and led numerous important strategic projects and acquisitions during his tenure. On behalf of Millennial Media, I wish him all the best for the future."
"I’ve very much appreciated the opportunity to serve in my roles at Millennial Media during such an exciting time in our Company’s history, in addition to the mobile industry as a whole, and I am very proud of what we’ve accomplished," said Mr. Avon. "After nearly eight successful years with the Company, first as an investor, and then as CFO, I’ve decided now is the time to move back to my entrepreneurial roots. I look forward to watching Millennial Media continue to grow, and have confidence the Company will thrive under the leadership of our new President & CEO and the strong and capable management team in place."
First Quarter 2014 Financial Results Conference Call: Millennial Media will host a conference call today at 5:00 p.m. ET to discuss its first quarter financial results, developments in its business, and the Company’s expectations for the second quarter of 2014.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement its consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), Millennial Media reports Adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as net income or net loss before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, non-cash stock-based compensation and expenses related to acquisitions, such as costs for services of lawyers, investment bankers, accountants and other third parties and acquisition related severance costs, bonuses and retention bonuses and accrual of retention payments that represent contingent compensation to be recognized over a requisite period. We define non-GAAP net income (loss) per common share as Adjusted EBITDA divided by diluted weighted average common shares outstanding. The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. The Company believes that these measures provide useful information about operating results, enhance the overall understanding of past financial performance and future prospects, and allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision making. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to results and guidance prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results.
The Company also presents Adjusted EBITDA on a pro forma combined basis. Pro forma combined Adjusted EBITDA includes results of the Company’s Jumptap, Inc. subsidiary for the entire period. A reconciliation of historical Adjusted EBITDA to net loss, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, for each of Millennial Media and Jumptap and on a pro forma combined basis, is set forth in the tables following this release.

Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...

He discussed from business and technical viewpoints what exactly they are, why we care, how they are different and in what ways, and the strategies for IT to tran...

Container technology is sending shock waves through the world of cloud computing. Heralded as the 'next big thing,' containers provide software owners a consistent way to package their software and dependencies while infrastructure operators benefit from a standard way to deploy and run them. Containers present new challenges for tracking usage due to their dynamic nature. They can also be deployed to bare metal, virtual machines and various cloud platforms. How do software owners track the usag...
