Business & Financial Highlights

As a percentage of total revenue, revenue attributable to performance-based pricing for the three months ended June 30, 2014 was 27% compared to 34% for the same period one year ago and for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was 25% compared to 35% for the same period one year ago.

As a percentage of total revenue, revenue attributable to our all-screen product for the three months ended June 30, 2014 was 21%.

This press release contains forward-looking statements that involve risks, uncertainties, assumptions and other factors that could cause actual results and the timing of certain events to differ materially from those set forth in or implied by such forward-looking statements. All statements other than statements of historical fact are forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, statements related to Tremor Video’s future financial results or growth potential, including third quarter 2014 and 2014 full year financial guidance, and statements with respect to future revenue mix or the development or adoption of the company’s solutions. Important factors that could cause actual results or the timing of events to differ materially from those set forth in or implied by any forward-looking statements include, without limitation, risks and uncertainties associated with: the company’s limited operating history and the continuing development of its business model; unfavorable conditions in the global economy or reductions in digital advertising spend; the company’s ability to effectively innovate and adapt to rapidly changing technology and client needs; increased competition as well as innovations by new and existing competitors; expansion of the online video advertising market; the company’s ability to attract new advertisers and increase spend from existing advertisers; the company’s ability to attract advertising spend from TV media buyers; adoption of brand-centric metrics, advanced ad formats and performance-based pricing models by advertisers; the company’s ability to effectively deliver video ad campaigns with demo guarantees; a delay in, or failure of advertisers or publishers to adopt, the company’s programmatic solutions; adoption of the company’s all-screen buying solution by advertisers; the company’s ability to acquire an adequate supply of premium video advertising inventory from publishers on terms that are favorable to it; the company’s ability to detect fraudulent or malicious activity and ensure a high level of brand safety for its clients; identifying, attracting and retaining qualified personnel; defects, errors or interruptions in the company’s solutions; the company’s ability to collect and use data to deliver video ads; the effect of regulatory developments and industry standards regarding internet privacy and other matters; maintaining, protecting and enhancing the company’s intellectual property; costs associated with defending intellectual property infringement, securities litigation and other claims; future opportunities and plans, including the uncertainty of expected future financial performance and results; as well as other risks and uncertainties detailed from time-to-time under the caption “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in Tremor Video’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013 filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on March 28, 2014, its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended March 31, 2014 filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on May 15, 2014, and future filings and reports by the company, including its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and beliefs and are not guarantees of future performance or events. Investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. Furthermore, forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which they are made, and, except as required by law, Tremor Video disclaims any obligation to update these forward-looking statements to reflect future events or circumstances.

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”), Tremor Video reports Adjusted EBITDA and basic and diluted Adjusted EBITDA per share which are non-GAAP financial measures. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net loss plus (minus): interest expense, net and other expense (income), income tax expense, depreciation and amortization expense, non-cash stock-based compensation expense, non-cash stock-based long-term incentive compensation, and litigation costs associated with pending class action securities litigation. We define Adjusted EBITDA per share as Adjusted EBITDA divided by weighted average common shares outstanding. We use these non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. We believe that these measures provide useful information about our operating results, enhance the overall understanding of our 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 non-GAAP financial measures included in this press release have been reconciled to the nearest GAAP measure in the table following the financial statements attached to this press release. With respect to our expectations under “Guidance” above, reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA guidance to the closest corresponding GAAP measure is not available without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to the high variability, complexity and low visibility with respect to the charges excluded from these non-GAAP measures, in particular, the measures and effects of stock-based compensation expense specific to equity compensation awards that are directly impacted by unpredictable fluctuations in our stock price. We expect the variability of the above charges to have a significant, and potentially unpredictable, impact on our future GAAP financial results.
