Revenue at DoubleClick Inc. was down for the fourth quarter and 2002 fiscal year, the company said yesterday.


DoubleClick reported fourth quarter revenue of $66.3 million, down from $96.1 million in the 2001 Q4. Its GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) net loss for the quarter was $53.9 million, while pro forma net income for the quarter was $7.3 million.


The difference between the GAAP net loss and pro forma net income was due to a $65.8 million restructuring charge, gains of $7.9 million from the sale of a portion of the company's holdings in DoubleClick Japan and minority interest positions and other non-cash and non-recurring items, the company said.


Full year 2002 revenue was $300.2 million, down 26 percent from 2001. The GAAP net loss was $117.9 million for 2002, better than a 2001 net loss of $265.8 million. DoubleClick said it had its first full year of pro forma profitability in 2002 with pro forma net income of $17.9 million.

The Data division reported quarterly revenue of $20.4 million and annual revenues of $83.3 million up 2.5 percent year-over-year.

Within the TechSolutions division: email is expected to generate approximately 17percent of total revenue, ad management is expected to represent 45 percent, and 3 percent is expected to come from new initiatives.
