"The record-breaking results we announced today illustrate the momentum we are seeing in our strategy to grow our enterprise business," said Eric D. Belcher, Chief Executive Officer of InnerWorkings.

We are very pleased with the significant growth in our enterprise accounts and expect a strong finish to the year."

Operational Highlights

InnerWorkings continues to win new enterprise contracts and has signed significant contract renewals and scope expansions with several of its largest clients. Two new clients include:

  • A Fortune 1000 services provider to businesses and consumers that signed a multi-year agreement through which InnerWorkings will provide marketing execution services, including direct mail and marketing collateral, to support the company's business in North America.
  • A Fortune 1000 grocery chain with 160+ locations that signed a multi-year agreement through which InnerWorkings will execute marketing activities, including direct mail, loyalty programs, point-of-sale displays and circulars.

"The strong earnings and top-line growth achieved in the quarter underscore the strength of InnerWorkings' service offerings, the ongoing commitment of our teams and our discipline in ensuring we maintain the appropriate margins to mitigate fluctuations in international currencies," said Jeffrey P. Pritchett, Chief Financial Officer of InnerWorkings. "We remain on track to achieve our growth targets and deliver earnings within the previously articulated ranges."

Outlook

The Company reaffirms its revenue guidance of 8% to 11% growth over 2014 in constant currency. The Company also reaffirms its 2015 Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA guidance of $49 million to $51 million and Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share guidance of $0.25 to $0.27 in reported terms.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes the following financial measures defined as "non-GAAP financial measures" by the Securities and Exchange Commission: Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Adjusted Operating Cash Flow, Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share and constant currency. We believe these measures provide useful information to investors because they provide information about the estimated financial performance of the Company's ongoing business. These measures are used by management in its financial and operational decision-making and evaluation of overall operating performance. With respect to constant currency, we believe such presentation allows investors to measure our financial performance exclusive of foreign currency exchange fluctuations more clearly. Constant currency for revenue, gross profit and Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA is calculated by retranslating current period results at a consistent rate with the prior period results. This approach is based on the pricing currency for each country, which is typically the functional currency. All of these non-GAAP financial measures may be different from similar measures used by other companies. The presentation of this financial information, which is not prepared under any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles, is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. For a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the nearest comparable GAAP measures, please see the "GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation" included in this release.
