MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., July 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SourceForge, Inc. (Nasdaq: LNUX) today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2009.

Total revenue for the second quarter of 2009 was $11.8 million compared to $11.8 million of revenue for the second quarter of 2008. Net loss for the second quarter of 2009 was $3.6 million or $0.06 per share compared to a net loss of $3.8 million or $0.06 per share, for the same period a year ago. Net loss for the second quarter of 2009 includes a $1.2 million loss resulting from the write-off of internally developed software.

"We executed well this quarter, growing each of our businesses from the first quarter and demonstrating early traction in our new strategy," said Scott Kauffman, President & CEO, SourceForge, Inc. "We made good progress on several of our key metrics, including the contribution from premium advertising, RPM, and orders shipped. We accomplished all this while maintaining our focus on our strategic initiatives, and are well positioned as our new strategy continues to take hold."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, we also report adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. We believe that adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to both management and investors and is an additional measurement which may be used to evaluate our operating performance. Our management and Board of Directors use adjusted EBITDA as part of their reporting and planning process and it is the primary measure we use to evaluate our operating performance. In addition, because we have historically reported non-GAAP earnings to the investment community, from which adjusted EBITDA can be derived, we believe the inclusion of adjusted EBITDA provides consistency in financial reporting. We also believe that the financial analysts who regularly follow and report on us and the business sector in which we compete use adjusted EBITDA to prepare their financial performance estimates, to measure our performance against other sector participants and to project our future financial results.

We define adjusted EBITDA as net loss which is adjusted for interest and other income (expense) net and income taxes as well as stock-based compensation, restructuring charges and depreciation and amortization. The method we use to produce adjusted EBITDA is not computed according to GAAP, is likely to differ from the methods used by other companies and should not be regarded as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. Adjusted EBITDA, as we compute it, excludes certain expenses that we believe are not indicative of our core operating results, as well as income taxes, stock-based compensation and depreciation and amortization. We consider our core operating results to include revenue recorded in a particular period and the related expenses that are intended to directly drive operating income during that period.

The EBITDA calculation excludes interest, income taxes and depreciation and amortization by its nature. In addition, when we compute adjusted EBITDA we exclude stock-based compensation and restructuring charges and other amounts included in the Interest income and other income (expense) net caption as we believe that these amounts represent income and expenses that are not directly related to our core operations. Although some of the items may recur on a regular basis, management does not consider activities associated with these items as core to its operations. With respect to stock-based compensation, we recognize expenses associated with stock-based compensation that require management to make assumptions about our common stock, such as expected future stock price volatility, the anticipated duration of outstanding stock options and awards and the rate at which we recognize the corresponding stock-based compensation expense over the course of future fiscal periods. While other forms of expenses (such as cash compensation, inventory costs and real estate costs) are reasonably correlated to our underlying business and such costs are incurred principally or wholly in the particular fiscal period being reported, stock-based compensation expense is not reasonably correlated to the particular fiscal period in question, but rather is based on expected future events that have no relationship (and in certain instances, an inverse relationship) with how well we currently operate our business. Restructuring costs are excluded from adjusted EBITDA because they represent non-cash charges which are not representative of our core operations.
