"We were pleased with our results this quarter which were driven by our customers' outperformance during the holiday season," stated Tom Ebling, Chief Executive Officer of Demandware. "During the fourth quarter and throughout 2012, we enabled our customers to move faster and, as a result, they grew faster. We were delighted that our comparable customers for 2012 grew their on-line businesses 34% on the Demandware Commerce platform. Their growth was powered by our robust merchandising and marketing tools and our state-of-the-art Demandware Commerce platform. Not only did we grow with our existing customers this year, but we also continued gaining traction with larger enterprise accounts. During 2012, large customers like Brooks Brothers and Pacific Sunwear launched sites on the Demandware Commerce platform, and enterprise class companies such as Karstadt signed initial contracts and are currently in implementation. We laid a strong foundation in 2012 and we are thrilled to enter 2013 as the clear leader in cloud based digital commerce solutions for enterprise customers."

  • Demandware signed significant new customers during the quarter including Fresh, HappyChic, Karstadt, Kipling, Nautica, Skullcandy, and World Kitchen.

  • Aritzia, ECCO, Ethan Allen, London Drugs, PANDORA (with PFS Web) and Pure Fishing were among the leading companies that launched new initial sites on the Demandware Commerce platform during the fourth quarter.

  • Existing customers like BootBarn, Guthy-Renker, Icebreaker, L'Oreal, Playmobil, and Quiksilver launched new commerce sites for new geographies or for new brands on the Demandware Commerce platform.

"This year, we continued to execute our land and expand strategy," stated Scott Dussault, Demandware Chief Financial Officer. "Live customers increased 50%, live sites increased 60% and our contract backlog grew 47% over the prior year, to reach $208 million. Our results demonstrate that our significant investments in the business are paying off. In 2013, we plan to continue to invest in sales and marketing and research and development. We believe these investments will enable us to capitalize on the significant market opportunities being created by the rapid pace of change in retail that is accelerating because of the convergence of online and in-store shopping."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Demandware has provided in this release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with GAAP. This information includes non-GAAP net income and net loss and non-GAAP net income and net loss per share. Demandware uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing its financial results and believes they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating Demandware's ongoing operational performance. Demandware believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing its financial measures with other companies in Demandware's industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. Non-GAAP net income and net loss and non-GAAP net income and net loss per share exclude expenses related to stock-based compensation and the accretion of redeemable preferred. These amounts are often difficult to predict and often excluded by other companies to help investors understand the operational performance of their business. Non-GAAP financial measures that the Company uses may differ from measures that other companies may use. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.
