MediaMind Technologies Inc. (Nasdaq:MDMD), the leading independent global provider of integrated digital advertising solutions, today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2011.
First Quarter Highlights

For the 2011 first quarter, revenues increased 18% to $18.9 million compared to $16.0 million in the prior-year period. Revenue growth was driven by acceleration in the company's data driven products, new customer wins and higher volumes of ad impressions.

Net income attributable to Common stockholders for the 2011 first quarter was $0.6 million, or diluted earnings per share of $0.03, compared to $42 thousand, or diluted earnings per share of $0.00, in the first quarter of 2010.
On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the 2011 first quarter was $1.6 million, or non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.07, compared to $0.8 million, or non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.07, in the first quarter of 2010.

Management Comments and Outlook
"We executed well against top and bottom line plan in the first quarter and have set the stage for accelerated top-line growth in 2011 and into 2012," commented Gal Trifon, President and CEO of MediaMind. "Demand was strong across all regions, highlighted by a 35% increase in our North American market, with a 124% increase in revenues from our data driven products and a growing contribution from our larger advertising partners. We also strengthened our global presence during the period with the addition of a new data center in China and the acquisition of our fast-growing distribution partner in Italy. Looking ahead, we see exciting growth opportunities in social media and mobile advertising trends and have solidified our plans to enhance our offering accordingly."
For the 2011 second quarter, MediaMind expects to generate revenues in the range of $25 to $26 million. Net income is expected in the range of $1.6 to $2.2 million, or diluted earnings per share of $0.07 to $0.10.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
We believe that non−GAAP financial measures can provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain non−cash expenses that are not indicative of our core operating results. These measures should only be viewed in conjunction with corresponding GAAP measures.
MediaMind's non−GAAP financial measures exclude the effect of stock−based compensation and the tax benefit resulting from it. The reconciliation between GAAP and non−GAAP financial measures is provided in the financial data below.
This press release contains statements that constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. All statements other than statements of historical facts are forward-looking statements. These statements include descriptions regarding the intent, belief or current expectations of the Company or its officers with respect to the future consolidated results of operations and financial condition of the Company, the continued global growth of digital advertising, and the Company's ability to continue to gain market share and capitalize on the anticipated global growth of digital advertising. Such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors that may cause actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements as a result of various factors and assumptions, including factors discussed under the heading "Risk Factors" in our final prospectus related to our initial public offering filed on August 12, 2010, our Annual Report on form 10K filed on March 8, 2011 and additional reports we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Note 1 - To supplement our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a basis consistent with GAAP, we disclose non−GAAP net income and non−GAAP earnings per share. These supplemental measures exclude stock−based compensation and one time Exit cost net of resulting taxes. These non−GAAP measures are not in accordance with and do not serve as an alternative for GAAP.
We believe that these non−GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with our GAAP results of operations. These non−GAAP measures should only be viewed in conjunction with corresponding GAAP measures. We compensate for the limitations of non−GAAP financial measures by relying upon GAAP results to gain a complete picture of our performance.
We believe that non−GAAP financial measures can provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses that are not indicative of our core operating results. Among other uses, our management uses non−GAAP measures to compare our performance relative to forecasts and to benchmark our performance externally against competitors.
Note 2 - Adjusted EBITDA is a metric used by management to measure operating performance. EBITDA represents net income before financial income, net, income tax expense depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA excluding non-cash stock-based compensation expense one time Exit cost. We present Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental performance measure because we believe it facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period and company to company by backing out potential differences caused by variations in capital structures (affecting financial income, net), tax positions (such as the impact on periods or companies of changes in effective tax rates), the age and book depreciation of fixed assets (affecting relative depreciation expense), the amortization of intangible assets, the impact of non-cash stock-based compensation expense and the impact of one time Exit Cost. Because Adjusted EBITDA facilitates internal comparisons of operating performance on a more consistent basis, we also use Adjusted EBITDA in measuring our performance relative to that of our competitors. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP or as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of our profitability or liquidity. We understand that although Adjusted EBITDA is frequently used by securities analysts, lenders and others in their evaluation of companies, Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are:
- Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
- Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
- Although depreciation is a non-cash charge, the assets being depreciated will often have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements; and
- Other companies in our industry may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.
