SourceForge Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2009 Financial Results
Total Revenue Growth -- Up 9% Year-Over-Year Media Revenue Increase 4% -- E-Commerce Revenue Increase 10%
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA, Feb 26, 2009 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX) -- SourceForge, Inc. (NASDAQ: LNUX), the leader in IT community-driven media and e-commerce, today announced financial results for its second quarter of fiscal 2009, which ended January 31, 2009.

Total revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2009 grew 9% to $23.9 million, as compared to $21.9 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2008.

On a GAAP basis, net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2009 was $0.5 million, or $0.01 per share, compared to GAAP net income of $2.2 million, or $0.03 per share, for the same period a year ago.

Non-GAAP income for the second fiscal quarter of fiscal 2009 was $1.5 million, or $0.02 per share, compared to non-GAAP income of $2.7 million, or $0.04 per share, for the same period a year ago. Non-GAAP income excludes stock-based compensation and restructuring charges. A reconciliation of our GAAP net income as reported to non-GAAP income is included in this release.

"While we achieved year-over-year revenue growth in these challenging times, we have a lot of work to do on our path to becoming a 21st century Internet media company," said Scott Kauffman, President & CEO, SourceForge, Inc. "I believe that our fate is in our hands and that our near term growth is more dependent on internal execution than external conditions."

    a 4% increase over second quarter of fiscal 2008 revenue of $4.2 million.

    2009, a 10% increase over second quarter fiscal 2008 revenue of $17.7

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, SourceForge also reports non-GAAP financial results. Non-GAAP income from continuing operations and non-GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations reflect income from continuing operations and exclude stock-based compensation expense and restructuring costs. These non-GAAP financial results are provided to enhance the reader's overall understanding of SourceForge's current financial performance and prospects for the future. Specifically, SourceForge believes that non-GAAP results provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses that SourceForge believes are not indicative of its core operating results and stock-based compensation. SourceForge considers its 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. In addition, because SourceForge has historically reported non-GAAP results to the investment community, SourceForge believes the inclusion of non-GAAP numbers provides consistency in financial reporting. Further, these non-GAAP results are one of the primary indicators management uses for planning and forecasting in future periods. The method SourceForge uses to produce non-GAAP results 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.

These non-GAAP financial results are derived from GAAP income from continuing operations by excluding restructuring charges and stock-based compensation expenses. Restructuring costs are excluded from SourceForge's GAAP financial measures because they represent non-cash charges which are not representative of SourceForge's core operations. With respect to stock-based compensation, SourceForge recognizes expenses associated with stock-based compensation that requires management to make assumptions about SourceForge's common stock such as expected future stock price volatility, the anticipated duration of outstanding stock options and awards and the rate at which SourceForge recognizes the corresponding stock-based compensation expense over the course of future fiscal periods. While other forms of SourceForge expense (such as cash compensation, inventory costs and real estate costs) are reasonably correlated to SourceForge's 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 SourceForge currently operates its business.

These non-GAAP financial measures are used by management and investors in addition to and in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of SourceForge's operations that, when viewed with our GAAP results and the accompanying reconciliations to corresponding GAAP financial measures, provide a more complete understanding of SourceForge's underlying operational results and trends in our performance. Further, SourceForge believes that the financial analysts who regularly follow and report on SourceForge and the business sector in which SourceForge competes exclude items such as these when analyzing performance relative to guidance, as well as their financial performance estimates and the performance of other sector participants, and in projecting future financial results.
