·                Fourth Quarter Total Revenues Grow 13% (18% on a constant currency basis)
 
·                Fourth Quarter Mobile Revenues Increase 488% (520% on a constant currency basis)
 
Austin, TX. — February 11, 2016 — Sizmek Inc. (NASDAQ: SZMK), a global open ad management company that delivers multiscreen campaigns, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2015.  Revenues for the three months ended December 31, 2015 were $55.5 million compared to $48.9 million in the prior year quarter.  On a constant currency basis, revenues grew 18% to $57.8 million when compared to the same period in the prior year and adjusted for the effect of changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Core products, consisting of all products except flash based rich media, grew 47% for the three months when adjusted for the effect of the change in foreign currencies, comprising 96% of the business for the fourth quarter.
 
Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended December 31, 2015 was $8.1 million, or $9.1 million when adjusted for the effect of changes in foreign currency, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $11.5 million for the same period of 2014.
 
“Our continued focus on our mobile suite, data driven products and programmatic channels helped us end the year on a positive note, reflecting that our investments are aligned with the growth trends in digital advertising," said Neil Nguyen, CEO and President of Sizmek.  “We finished 2015 making good progress on the integration and development of both PointRoll and StrikeAd and will focus our efforts on ensuring these and other investments provide growth while returning Sizmek to cash generation and increased profitability.”

Financial highlights:
 
·
Core product revenues grew 41% for the fourth quarter of 2015 or 47% on a constant currency basis, driven by mobile and NAM revenues:
 
o
Mobile Product (including HTML5 formats) revenues grew 488% in the fourth quarter of 2015, and grew 298% for Full Year 2015 from the comparable 2014 periods;
 
o
NAM which represented 60% of total revenue in the fourth quarter of 2015 grew 29% in the quarter and 13% for Full Year 2015 from the comparable 2014 periods;               
 
o
Flash based rich media declined 80% compared to the fourth quarter of 2014 and represented approximately 4% of total revenues in the fourth quarter of 2015.
 
·
Adjusted EBITDA margin reached 15% in the fourth quarter of 2015.
 
·
At December 31, 2015 the Company had $42.0 million of cash and cash equivalents on hand and had no long-term debt.
 
·
Due to the significant decline in market capitalization, operating results and to a lesser degree forecasts, the Company determined that goodwill and related intangible assets were impaired as of December 31, 2015.  As such the Company took a non-cash charge of $111.6 million, resulting in a loss for the quarter of $3.75 per share.

Basis of Presentation
 
Sizmek Inc. was formed in 2013 and operated as the online segment of DG until February 7, 2014. On February 7, 2014, pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of August 12, 2013, by and among Digital Generation, Inc. (DG), Extreme Reach, Inc., and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Extreme Reach, DG’s online business was spun off into Sizmek and the remainder of DG became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Extreme Reach.  Accordingly, the accompanying financial statements reflect results up to February 7, 2014 on a carve-out basis and results subsequent to February 7, 2014 on a stand-alone basis.
 
The accompanying financial statements and schedules reflect the combined historical results of operations and cash flows of DG’s online business conducted through its online subsidiaries and an allocable portion of certain DG corporate expenses for periods up to February 7, 2014.  These combined financial statements include expense allocations for (1) certain corporate functions historically provided by DG, including, but not limited to, finance, audit, legal, information technology, human resources, communications, compliance, and shared services; and (2) employee benefits and incentives and (3) share-based compensation.  These expenses have been allocated to Sizmek on the basis of direct usage when identifiable, with the remainder allocated on a pro-rata basis of combined revenues, headcount or other measures of the Company and DG. Sizmek considers the basis on which the expenses have been allocated to be a reasonable reflection of the utilization of services provided to or the benefit received by the Company during the periods presented.   The allocations may not, however, reflect the full expense we would have incurred as an independent, publicly traded company for 2014. We benefited from sharing the corporate cost structure of DG rather than incurring such costs ourselves on a stand-alone basis. Actual costs that may have been incurred if we had been a stand-alone company for all of 2014 would depend on a number of factors, including the chosen organizational structure, what functions were outsourced or performed by employees and strategic decisions made in areas such as information technology and infrastructure.  For comparison purposes, we have included a schedule reconciling 2014 results reflected on a combined basis with pro forma amounts which include the increased corporate overhead expenses expected on a stand-alone basis.
 
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
 
In addition to providing financial measurements based on generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (GAAP), the Company has historically provided additional financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP (non-GAAP). We believe that the inclusion of Adjusted EBITDA as a non-GAAP financial measure in this press release helps investors to gain a meaningful understanding of our past performance and future prospects, consistent with how management measures and forecasts our performance, especially when comparing such results to previous periods or forecasts. Our management uses Adjusted EBITDA as a non-GAAP financial measure, in addition to GAAP financial measures, in its financial and operational decision-making, as the basis for measuring our overall operating performance and comparing such performance to that of prior periods and to the performance of our competitors.

There are limitations associated with reliance on any non-GAAP financial measure because non-GAAP financial measures are specific to our operations and financial performance, which makes comparisons with other companies’ financial results more challenging. By providing both GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures, we believe that investors are able to compare our GAAP results to those of other companies while also gaining a better understanding of our operating performance as evaluated by management.
 
The Company considers Adjusted EBITDA to be an important indicator of the overall performance of the Company because it eliminates the effects of events that are non-cash, or are not expected to recur as they are not part of our ongoing operations.
 
The Company defines “Adjusted EBITDA” as income (loss) from operations, before depreciation and amortization, share-based compensation, merger, integration and other expenses, and restructuring / impairment charges and benefits.  The Company considers Adjusted EBITDA to be an important indicator of the Company’s operational strength and performance and a good measure of the Company’s historical operating trends.
 
Adjusted EBITDA eliminates items that are either not part of our overall operations, such as merger, integration and other expenses or do not require a cash outlay, such as share-based compensation and impairment charges.  Adjusted EBITDA also excludes depreciation and amortization expense, which is based on the Company’s estimate of the useful life of tangible and intangible assets.  These estimates could vary from actual performance of the asset, are based on historical costs, and may not be indicative of current or future capital expenditures.
 
Adjusted EBITDA should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, the Company’s operating income (loss), as well as other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP.
 
Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
 
In accordance with the requirements of Regulation G issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Company is presenting the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure and reconciling the non-GAAP financial measure to the comparable GAAP measure.

Certain non-GAAP financial measures are presented on a forward-looking basis and certain factors that could affect GAAP financial measures are not accessible or estimable on a forward-looking basis. These factors include items that may be material, such as future sources of revenue in specific geographic locations and applicable tax rates due to our world-wide services, transaction costs in our industry that involve frequent M&A and co-venture activity, and other related charges.
