Care.com Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2015 Financial Results

Achieves Record Fourth Quarter Profitability

WALTHAM, Mass.--()--Care.com, Inc. (NYSE: CRCM), the world's largest online destination for finding and managing family care, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 26, 2015.

“In Q4, we achieved GAAP net income for the first time in the company’s history”

“In Q4, we achieved GAAP net income for the first time in the company’s history,” said Sheila Lirio Marcelo, Founder, Chairwoman, and CEO of Care.com. “On an Adjusted EBITDA basis, we achieved a 10 percentage point improvement as a percent of revenue versus Q4 2014, driven primarily by a seven percentage point improvement in sales and marketing. For the year, we achieved a 14 percentage point improvement in sales and marketing spend as a percent of revenue. At the same time, we grew revenue by 25% in 2015 and continued to invest in R&D, including developing our transactional consumer mobile platform and our enterprise on-demand, back-up care app now being used at one of the largest technology companies in the world. We’re excited about our mobile product investments. While we anticipate that it will take time for us to realize meaningful revenue from these investments, we expect they will position us well to capture a larger portion of our market opportunity for both our consumer and enterprise services in the future.”

Cautionary Language Concerning Forward-Looking Statements:

This press release contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the "safe harbor" provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including but not limited to, statements regarding the anticipated profitability of our business in 2016 on an adjusted EBITDA basis and the Company’s financial guidance for the first quarter of 2016 and full year 2016.

These forward-looking statements are made as of the date they were first issued and were based on current expectations, estimates, forecasts and projections as well as the beliefs and assumptions of management. Words such as "expect," "anticipate," "should," "believe," "hope," "target," "project," "goals," "estimate," "potential," "predict," "may," "will," "might," "could," "intend," variations of these terms or the negative of these terms and similar expressions are intended to identify these forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, many of which involve factors or circumstances that are beyond the Company's control. The Company's actual results could differ materially from those stated or implied in forward-looking statements due to a number of factors, including but not limited to: our ability to grow our membership while leveraging our investment in sales and marketing, our success in converting non-paying members to paying members, our ability to cross-sell new and existing products and services to our members and to develop new products and services that members consider valuable, our ability to protect our brand and maintain our reputation among our members, and other risks detailed in the Company's other publicly available filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. The forward-looking statements included in this press release represent the Company's views as of the date of this press release. The Company anticipates that subsequent events and developments will cause its views to change. The Company undertakes no intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. These forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing the Company's views as of any date subsequent to the date of this press release.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the financial measures presented in the Company’s press release and related conference call or webcast in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"), we also present the following non-GAAP measures of financial performance: adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income (loss) from continuing operations and non-GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations (“EPS”).

A “non-GAAP financial measure” refers to a numerical measure of the Company’s historical or future financial performance, financial position, or cash flows that excludes (or includes) amounts that are included in (or excluded from) the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the Company’s financial statements. The Company provides certain non-GAAP measures as additional information relating to its operating results as a complement to results provided in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial information presented here should be considered in conjunction with, and not as a substitute for or superior to, the financial information presented in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered a measure of the Company’s liquidity. There are significant limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures. Further, these measures may differ from the non-GAAP information, even where similarly titled, used by other companies and therefore should not be used to compare the Company’s performance to that of other companies.

The Company has presented: adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net loss from continuing operations and non-GAAP EPS as non-GAAP financial measures in this press release. We define adjusted EBITDA as net loss from continuing operations, plus: federal, state and franchise taxes, other expense (income), net, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, accretion of contingent consideration, merger and acquisition related costs and other unusual or non-cash significant adjustments, such as impairment charges. Adjusted EBITDA eliminates the effects of financing, income taxes and the accounting effects of capital spending, which is based on the Company's estimate of the useful life of tangible and intangible assets. We define non-GAAP net income (loss) as net loss from continuing operations, plus stock-based compensation, accretion of contingent consideration, merger and acquisition related costs and other unusual or non-cash significant adjustments. We define non-GAAP EPS as non-GAAP net income (loss) divided by weighted basic shares outstanding.

The Company believes the use of non-GAAP financial measures, as a supplement to GAAP measures, is useful to investors in that they eliminate items that are either not part of the Company's core operations or do not require a cash outlay, such as stock-based compensation. Care.com’s management uses these non-GAAP financial measures when evaluating the Company’s operating performance and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures help indicate underlying trends in the Company’s business, are important in comparing current results with prior period results, and are useful to investors and financial analysts in assessing the Company’s operating performance.
