SANTA MONICA, Calif.--()--Talent management software provider Cornerstone OnDemand, Inc. (NASDAQ: CSOD) today announced results for its fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2014.

Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2014 was $76.4 million, representing a 39% increase compared to the same period in 2013. Revenue for the full year of 2014 was $263.6 million, representing a 42% increase compared to the same period in 2013.

Bookings, which the Company defines as revenue plus the change in deferred revenue for the period, were $114.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2014, representing a 35% increase compared to the same period in 2013. 1 Bookings for the full year of 2014 were $316.1 million, representing a 36% increase compared to the same period in 2013. 1 Deferred revenue at December 31, 2014 was $191.3 million, representing a 38% increase compared to the balance at December 31, 2013.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, Cornerstone OnDemand has provided in this release and the quarterly conference call held on the date hereof certain measures that have not been prepared in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures include (i) non-GAAP revenue, which is defined as revenue plus revenue not recognized in the period due to the impact of purchase accounting rules on deferred revenue acquired through acquisitions, (ii) non-GAAP cost of revenue, which is defined as cost of revenue less amortization of intangible assets and stock-based compensation and employer-related taxes, (iii) bookings, which are defined as revenue plus the change in deferred revenue for the period, (iv) non-GAAP net cash provided by operating activities, which excludes payment of acquisition related costs, payment of premium on investments net of related amortization and employer-related taxes from stock-based compensation, (v) non-GAAP net cash provided by operating activities margin, which is defined as non-GAAP net cash provided by operating activities divided by non-GAAP revenue, (vi) non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share, which are based on non-GAAP revenue and exclude, for the periods in which they are present, stock-based compensation and employer-related payroll taxes, amortization of intangible assets, adjustments to taxes related to acquisition adjustments, acquisition related costs, accretion of debt discount and amortization of debt issuance costs, and other amortization costs, (vii) non-GAAP net loss margin, which is defined as non-GAAP net loss divided by non-GAAP revenue, (viii) non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin, which are calculated based on non-GAAP revenue and exclude stock-based compensation and employer-related taxes and amortization of certain intangible assets reflected in cost of revenue, (ix) non-GAAP operating loss and non-GAAP operating loss margin, which are calculated based on operating loss and exclude adjustments to revenue, stock-based compensation and employer-related taxes, amortization of intangible assets and acquisition costs, and (x) non-GAAP operating expenses, which exclude stock-based compensation, employer-related taxes, and amortization of intangible assets, and (xi) non-GAAP sales and marketing expense, non-GAAP research and development expense, and non-GAAP general and administrative expense, each of which excludes stock-based compensation and employer-related taxes attributable to the corresponding GAAP financial measures.

Cornerstone OnDemand’s management uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing its financial results and believes they are useful to investors, as a supplement to the corresponding GAAP measures, in evaluating Cornerstone OnDemand’s ongoing operational performance and trends and in comparing its financial measures with other companies in the same industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to help investors understand the operational performance of their businesses. However, it is important to note that the particular items Cornerstone excludes from, or includes in, its non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the items excluded from, or included in, similar non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies in the same industry.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to such GAAP measures has been provided in the tables included as part of this press release.
