    • CEO Michael Barrett: "[R]evenue is ramping more slowly than we had hoped. We are evaluating strategic opportunities to maximize the value of our capabilities in this rapidly evolving ecosystem." TechCrunch reported in July AOL/Verizon is interested in acquiring Millennial.
    • Financials: Gross margin rose 370 bps Y/Y to 43.9% (lifted EPS), and GAAP costs/expenses rose by $2.1M to $44.2M. Millennial ended Q2 with $34.6M in cash (down from $49.5M at the end of 2014), and $5M in short-term borrowings.

    • Q1 gross billings (doesn't back out developer payments) totaled $75.4M, beating guidance of $69M-$72M. Q2 billings guidance is at $86M-$89M, and full-year guidance is still at $435M-$459M.

    • Millennial Media (NYSE:MM) expects Q1 revenue of $55M-$58M, below a sole analyst estimate of $66M. However, full-year revenue guidance of $311M-$342M is in-line with a $321.2M 2-analyst consensus, and going over well in light of Millennial's recent woes.
    • Q1 and full-year billings guidance is respectively at $69M-$72M and $435M-$459M. Between them, Millennial and recently-acquired supply-side mobile ad platform Nexage had 2014 revenue of $302.5M and billings of $348.3M.
    • Nexage, which Millennial finished acquiring on Dec. 4, had Q4 revenue of $3.6M and billings of $18.5M. Overall, Millennial reached 650M+ users globally (175M in the U.S.) at the end of Q4, and supported ~60K apps on its ad platform; both figures are flat Q/Q for the second straight quarter (previous).
    • Gross margin was 38.3% vs. 37.8% in Q3 and 38.7% a year ago. Millennial/Nexage's combined pro forma operating expenses totaled $42.6M; Millennial's year-ago GAAP operating expenses totaled $41.2M.
    • Adjusted EBITDA was -$1.8M. Millennial is guiding for Q1 adjusted EBITDA of -$14M to -$15M. Full-year adjusted EBITDA is simply expected to be "positive."
    • Shares have risen to $1.72 AH.

    • Though it beat Q3 estimates, Millennial Media (MM -1.2%) is guiding for Q4 revenue of $70M-$75M, well below an $88M consensus. But with shares down 77% YTD going into earnings, a lot of bad news had already been priced in.
    • The company's mobile ad networks reached 650M+ users in Q3, and supported 60K apps and sites. Both figures are flat Q/Q for the second straight quarter.
    • On an adjusted basis, gross margin fell 80 bps Y/Y to 37.8%. A $93.5M goodwill/asset impairment charge was taken during the quarter. Adjusted EBITDA was -$6.9M, and is expected to be in a range of -$5.5M to -$6.5M in Q4.

    • In addition to missing Q2 revenue estimates (while beating on EPS), Millennial Media (NYSE:MM) is guiding for Q3 revenue of $65M-$70M, well below a $78M consensus. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to drop to -$7M to -$8M from Q2's -$6.1M.
