Review of Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

Adjusted revenues increased 64% to $84.8 million for the second quarter of 2014 from $51.7 million for the second quarter of 2013. The increase was primarily due to a 72% increase in revenues from AUM or AUA to $70.7 million from $41.2 million in the prior year period. Revenue from Prudential’s Wealth Management Solutions (“WMS”) business, acquired by the Company in July 2013, is included for the entire second quarter of 2014.

Total operating expenses increased 62% to $80.7 million in the second quarter of 2014 from $49.9 million in the second quarter of 2013. Cost of revenues increased 93% to $38.0 million in the second quarter of 2014 from $19.6 million in the second quarter of 2013 due to the increase in revenue from AUM or AUA, additional costs attributable to WMS revenues, which have a higher cost profile than the Company’s non-WMS business, and costs incurred related to our annual Advisor Summit. Compensation and benefits increased 46% to $25.2 million in the second quarter of 2014 from $17.2 million in the prior year period, primarily due to WMS, as well as higher non-cash compensation expense. General and administration expenses increased 30% to $12.9 million in the second quarter of 2014 from $10.0 million in the prior year period, primarily due to WMS.

Income from operations was $4.2 million for the second quarter of 2014 compared to $1.8 million for the second quarter of 2013. Net income attributable to Envestnet, Inc. was $3.7 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2014 compared to $1.1 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2013. Adjusted EBITDA(1) in the second quarter of 2014 was $12.8 million, compared to $9.3 million in the prior year period. Adjusted Net Income(1) was $6.6 million, compared to $4.5 million in the second quarter of 2013. Adjusted Net Income Per Share(1) was $0.18, compared to $0.13 in the second quarter of 2013.

At June 30, 2014, the Company had $64.5 million in cash and cash equivalents with no debt.

(1) Non-GAAP Financial Measures

“Adjusted revenues” exclude the effect of purchase accounting on the fair value of acquired deferred revenue. Under GAAP, we record at fair value the acquired deferred revenue for contracts in effect at the time the entities were acquired. Consequently, revenue related to acquired entities for periods subsequent to the acquisition does not reflect the full amount of revenue that would have been recorded by these entities had they remained stand-alone entities.

“Adjusted EBITDA” represents net income before deferred revenue fair value adjustment, interest income, imputed interest on contingent consideration, income tax provision, depreciation and amortization, non-cash compensation expense, restructuring charges and transaction costs, re-audit related expenses, severance, fair market value adjustment on contingent consideration, litigation related expense and pre-tax loss attributable to non-controlling interest.

“Adjusted net income” represents net income before deferred revenue fair value adjustment, imputed interest on contingent consideration, non-cash compensation expense, restructuring charges and transaction costs, re-audit related expenses, severance, fair market value adjustment on contingent consideration, amortization of acquired intangibles, litigation related expense and net loss attributable to non-controlling interest. Reconciling items are tax effected using the income tax rates noted in the reconciliation table found in this release.

“Adjusted net income per share” represents adjusted net income divided by the diluted number of weighted-average shares outstanding.

See reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures at the end of this press release. These measures should not be viewed as a substitute for revenues, net income or net income per share determined in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).

One of the biggest challenges with adopting a DevOps mentality is: new applications are easily adapted to cloud-native, microservice-based, or containerized architectures - they can be built for them - but old applications need complex refactoring. On the other hand, these new technologies can require relearning or adapting new, oftentimes more complex, methodologies and tools to be ready for production. In his general session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, Solutions Marketi...
In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists discussed...
Elon Musk is among the notable industry figures who worries about the power of AI to destroy rather than help society. Mark Zuckerberg, on the other hand, embraces all that is going on. AI is most powerful when deployed across the vast networks being built for Internets of Things in the manufacturing, transportation and logistics, retail, healthcare, government and other sectors.

The last two years has seen discussions about cloud computing evolve from the public / private / hybrid split to the reality that most enterprises will be creating a complex, multi-cloud strategy. Companies are wary of committing all of their resources to a single cloud, and instead are choosing to spread the risk – and the benefits – of cloud computing across multiple providers and internal infrastructures, as they follow their business needs. Will this approach be successful? How large is the ...
Your clients expect transactions to never fail, cloud access to be fast and always on, and their data to be protected - no exceptions. Hear about how Secure Service Container (SSC), an IBM-exclusive open technology, enables secure building and hosting of next-generation applications, both cloud and on-premises. SSC protects the full stack from external and insider threats, allows automatic encryption of data in-flight and at-rest, and is tamper-resistant during installation and runtime – with no...
