VENLO, Netherlands, Oct. 28, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vistaprint N.V. (Nasdaq:VPRT),  the company that provides high-impact personalized products and services for small businesses and the home, today announced financial results for the three month period ended September 30, 2010, the first quarter of its 2011 fiscal year.

"Vistaprint delivered solid results in revenue and earnings per share in the first quarter of the new fiscal year relative to our guidance.  Increased operational focus accompanied by currency tailwinds resulted in higher-than-anticipated quarterly revenue," said Robert Keane, president and chief executive officer. "This, along with cost controls and better-than-expected gross margins, resulted in earnings per share that exceeded the high end of the guidance we set in July. We are encouraged by these results; however, we believe we have a lot more work to do, organizational evolution to come and investments to make to ensure that Vistaprint remains a high-growth company for the foreseeable future."

Financial Metrics:

  • Revenue for the first quarter of fiscal year 2011 grew to $170.5 million, an 18 percent increase over revenue of $145.1 million reported in the same quarter a year ago.  Excluding the estimated impact from currency exchange rate fluctuations, total revenue grew 20 percent from the first quarter a year ago. Excluding the impact of the termination of membership programs which generated 2.3 percent of total revenue in the first quarter of 2010, but 0 percent of total revenue in the first quarter of 2011, constant currency revenue growth was 23 percent year over year.

  • GAAP net income for the first quarter was $10.8 million, or 6.3 percent of revenue, representing a 17 percent decrease compared to $13.0 million, or 8.9 percent of revenue in the same quarter a year ago.  
     
  • GAAP net income per diluted share for the first quarter was $0.24, versus $0.29 in the same quarter a year ago.

During the quarter, Vistaprint broadened its product offering with engraved pens, extra large banners, personalized email domain names, web site blogs, and a search engine optimization tool for web site customers. 

"While we are off to a positive start to fiscal 2011 with our first quarter results, we remain at the very early stages of the holiday-related seasonal peak that is critical to our full fiscal year results," said Mike Giannetto, chief financial officer. "We have updated our revenue guidance for fiscal 2011 to reflect our second quarter outlook at recent currency exchange rates. However, we do not believe it is prudent at this time to assume those recent exchange rates will persist through the back half of the year, because we are operating within a volatile currency environment."

About non-GAAP financial measures  

To supplement Vistaprint's consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, Vistaprint has used the following measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by Securities and Exchange Commission (or SEC) rules: non-GAAP adjusted net income, non-GAAP adjusted net income per diluted share, free cash flow, constant currency revenue growth, and constant currency revenue growth, ex-membership. The item excluded from the non-GAAP adjusted net income measurements is share-based compensation expense and its related tax effect. Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities minus purchases of property, plant and equipment, and capitalization of software and website development costs. Constant currency basis is estimated by translating all non-U.S. dollar denominated revenue generated in the current period using the prior year period's average exchange rate for each currency to the U.S. dollar. Constant currency revenue growth, ex-membership excludes both the estimated impact of currency described above, as well as the impact of the termination of the membership programs previously offered by Vistaprint. It is calculated by excluding all membership revenue from the periods presented. 

The presentation of non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the tables captioned "Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" included at the end of this release. The tables have more details on the GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures and the related reconciliation between these financial measures.   

Vistaprint's management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information in assessing our performance and when forecasting and analyzing future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also have facilitated management's internal comparisons to Vistaprint's historical performance and our competitors' operating results. 

Management provides these non-GAAP financial measures as a courtesy to investors. However, to gain a more complete understanding of the company's financial performance, management does (and investors should) rely upon GAAP statements of operations and cash flow.
