Jonathan Oringer -- Founder, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board

Thanks, Heidi. And thank you everyone for joining us today for Shutterstock's fourth quarter and full year 2019 earnings call. As you've seen over the last several weeks, we made some leadership announcements that the entire Board and management team are excited about. First, and most recently, this morning, we announced that after serving as CEO for the past 16 years, I will be assuming the role of Executive Chairman at Shutterstock, which will take effect on April 1st.

In this new position, I'm excited to continue to help the Company from a different perspective. I am pleased to announce that Stan Pavlovsky, our current President and Chief Operating Officer will be assuming the role of CEO. I speak for the entire Board, when I say that we are confident that Stan is the ideal person for the job. I've enjoyed working closely with him since he joined last year and his leadership and vision has been invaluable.

Stan hit the ground running as soon as he joined, taking impactful leadership role, not only in the operations of Shutterstock, but also in the development and execution of our long-term strategic vision. His experience and his extensive background in successfully growing and leading e-commerce, retail, and digital media businesses make him uniquely qualified to assume the responsibilities as CEO.

In my role as Executive Chairman, I will continue leveraging my areas of expertise, advising on Shutterstock's strategic initiatives and supporting the Company in the next phase of its growth and innovation. I plan to stay involved in the strategy and long-term direction of the business, including yearly planning, M&A, capital allocation, and other large projects and initiatives. I want to be clear that my fiduciary duty and commitment to shareholders will not change in my new role, and will remain as strong as ever. As the largest shareholder of the Company, my interest is in its -- in its success continues to be squarely aligned with our investors.

I am fully confident in the strength and competitiveness of Shutterstock's dynamic and creative technology platform, and in the opportunities ahead of us as a leader in our industry. I'd also like to welcome Jarrod Yahes, our new CFO to his first Shutterstock earnings call. Jarrod joined our leadership team in December and has already been a tremendous addition to our management team.

He has extensive experience, leading finance and accounting teams and successfully growing businesses organically and through M&A. We also announced that Peter Silvio has been promoted to Chief Technology Officer, after doing an excellent job as head of Engineering. He will continue to lead our technology organization to drive the development and implementation of innovative products that bring new value and an outstanding user experience to our customers and contributors.

These are critical components of our business and our team is excited that Peter is going to help further Shutterstock's leading role in our industry. With these appointments, we have further augmented our management team. With best-in-class leaders, we have the right experience to drive enhanced value for our shareholders. I'm really excited to continue working closely with them in my role as Executive Chairman.

Before I turn the call over to Stan and Jarrod, I would like to spend a few moments to reflect on where this Company has been since we founded it 16 years ago and where Shutterstock is headed. We started the Company in 2003 as a scrappy start-up, but quickly established ourselves as a great business. We were profitable on day one and have been every year since. Since that time, we have become a clear leader in the space and achieved numerous accomplishments over the years. Most recently, we celebrated the remarkable milestone of paying $1 billion in earnings to our global network of contributors.

We're proud of the success our contributors have achieved leveraging Shutterstock's platform, and are thrilled to share this accomplishment with our global community, our fellow creatives, including artists, photographers, videographers, and musicians. I want to thank all of our contributors, who made this historic breakthrough possible. While this is a massive achievement, we have not forgotten our roots.

We still maintain the upstart mentality as a disruptor in this space. Since 2003, we have worked tirelessly to append the industry by constantly innovating and providing professionals and creatives with a comprehensive platform for high quality content, tools and services. We strive to stay in front of the needs of our customers and market trends. This disruptor mindset is deep-rooted in our DNA and I'm encouraged that with the new leadership, this will remain integral to our Company.

Looking at 2020 and beyond, we are as committed as ever to our mission of providing sustainable value for our users. We will also -- we will always seek to evolve our suite of product offerings to provide enterprises, SMBs, marketers, and creatives with the assets they need whenever they need it. That's what we excel at, and what we'll continue to do.

In addition, we will continue to work diligently to best position our business for long-term profitable growth in a competitive market. We continue to see a growing need for digital content as marketing trends highlight the importance of high quality content solutions. Further, we'll make Shutterstock stand out as a constantly evolving platform, which we thoughtfully developed and build upon to be highly nimble and provide a better user experience.

We see additional opportunities to leverage our platform to take advantage of new market opportunities that can further benefit our customers. The future is bright for Shutterstock. Our collective goal in pushing for innovation and enhancing our team is meant to achieve long-term sustainable growth. With this in mind, I remain very confident in Shutterstock's future and look forward to helping support its continued success.

Finally, before turning it over to Stan, I'd like to thank our incredible Shutterstock team. It has been a privilege to serve as CEO for so many years and I am humbled by the hard work and dedication of our employees. Their support will ensure we realize the full potential of this Company and deliver value to our numerous stakeholders long into the future.

Working together, Shutterstock revolutionized the stock image industry. And along the way, we created a global technology platform that brings the best, most innovative content, to organizations around the world. I truly believe the best is yet to come. Thank you for your support, and now I'll turn it to Stan.

Stan Pavlovsky -- President and Chief Operating Officer

Thanks Jon, and good morning everyone. Before I begin my remarks, I would like to thank Jon for his continued leadership at Shutterstock. Jon is a true visionary. He has been instrumental in every aspect of building this great Company into a leading global platform, offering best in class content, tools and services to millions.

We've worked together with management team to solidify a transition plan designed to provide leadership continuity and I look forward to working with Jon throughout the transition and beyond. Having been the COO for almost a year now, I've been focused on driving improved execution across sales, marketing, product and technology to ensure that all of these areas are working together to create a better customer and contributor experience. As CEO, I look forward to driving our long-term strategy in support of Shutterstock's vision to be a leading content and technology platform that enables marketers and creators around the world to deliver impactful stories that capture and captivate their audiences.

As Jon mentioned, this Company started off as a disruptor in the space. By taking advantage of the growing need for content, Shutterstock ended up changing the stock content industry. For the past 16 years we've kept up that entrepreneurial spirit and we must continue to push ourselves to be disruptors. We are well positioned to expand on our current portfolio of offerings and find ways to better align with key trends to capture compelling new opportunities.

So as CEO, I intend to drive higher customer retention and new revenue streams by focusing on three things: Innovation, that enhances our customer work flow; content, that is relevant and fresh; and data and insights that drive performance. We have an ambitious plan and a lot of work ahead of us and I'm excited about our future prospects. As we look back to 2019, we started to take steps toward our future strategy. Specifically, from a content perspective, we increased our global content footprint, bringing more relevant and local content to our users.

We also launched new music solutions meeting the rapidly growing demand from key audience segments such as social media managers, YouTubers and production studios. From a technology and innovation standpoint, we launched Smart Brief as a self-service tool enabling a wider range of customers to leverage our marketplace for unique content solutions, and we reached over 3,000 partners that offer our content to their customers via our API integration as well as launching a self-service API subscription plan to meet the demand of small and mid-sized businesses.

From a data standpoint, we continue to invest in deep learning, which allows us to drive customer's performance and improve discovery. As an example, deep learning models we have built allow us to safely filter content for our customers. I would like -- I would like to briefly touch on our 2019 financial results before Jarrod provides a more detailed review. In 2019, our revenue growth was 4% on a reported basis, driven by positive momentum in our e-commerce channel, which saw reported revenue growth of 7% reaching $392 million.

We did experience continued headwinds in our enterprise channel, which grew 1% to $258 million. As I mentioned on previous calls, we are implementing improvements within our Enterprise channel to drive growth. We recently realigned our sales organization and revised our compensation plan to ensure that our sales team is properly structured and incentivized to deliver the right products to our customers.

We also improved our go-to-market strategy and are focused on providing strategic solutions to our customers. We should start to see results of these initiatives in the back half of the year. EBITDA was $96 million, an 8% decline from 2018. We recognized a slowdown in growth and margin pressure and are committed to expanding our margins in 2020. While there is work to be done, we are confident that we are positioning the Company for long-term and sustainable success, and I am excited to help deliver on our long-term strategy.

Now, I'll turn the call over to Jarrod for a more detailed financial review.

Jarrod Yahes -- Chief Financial Officer

Thank you, Stan and good morning everyone. Before I get started, I'd like to say how excited I am to have joined Shutterstock. In my first few months as CFO, I've been impressed by the strong team here and their commitment to building innovative solutions to meet the changing needs of our customers.

I believe it is a tremendous opportunity to enhance the operational and financial performance of Shutterstock and I look forward to continuing to work closely with Stan, Jon, our Board of Directors, and the entire team to solidify Shutterstock's position for long-term success and further our vision of being a leading content and technology platform.

And now for the financial results. Revenue growth in the fourth quarter compared to the prior year was 3% on both a reported and constant currency basis. For the full year 2019, revenue growth was 4%. Excluding the impact of FX movements, revenue growth was approximately 2% higher for the full year or 6%. Breaking down our revenue growth performance in 2019 further, in the fourth quarter, the e-commerce channel, which represents 60% of our revenues increased 6% to $101 million as compared to the fourth quarter of 2018.

In the fourth quarter, the Enterprise channel revenue, which represents 40% of our revenues decreased 2% to $65.5 million and was flat on a constant currency basis, as compared to the fourth quarter of 2018. For the full year, the e-commerce channel remained healthy and experienced growth of 7% or 9% on a constant currency basis consistent with 2018.

For the full year, the Enterprise channel grew 1% and 3% on a constant currency basis. As we've discussed, this represents a considerable slowdown for the Enterprise channel on a full year basis, as compared to the rapid growth in years past. We do expect the negative enterprise trends to reverse themselves, and for us to return to positive year-on-year growth comparables in the latter half of 2020 as some of the investments we've been making and reinvigorating our sales team and approach begin to pay off.

Reviewing some of our key operating metrics in the fourth quarter, on a year-over-year basis, paid downloads grew by 2% to $47.7 million, revenue per download grew by 1% to $3.44 per download. Our image library expanded by 30% to approximately 314 million images and our video library increased 30% to approximately 17 million clips.

I'd like to add some additional transparency to the metrics by double clicking into revenue per download. The growth we've seen in revenue per download this past year is predominantly due to mix shift, with growth in video sales outpacing our other content types. In addition, from a sales channel perspective, we're seeing favorable trends in our e-commerce revenue per download, offset by pressure in our Enterprise channel revenue per download.

Turning to our margins. In the fourth quarter of 2019, our gross margins were 56.8%, down 70 basis points from 57.5% in the fourth quarter of 2018. The main driver of the change in gross margin is increase in the depreciation and amortization component of our cost of goods sold from higher content acquisition and technology costs.

However, for the full year of 2019, gross margins were 57.2%, up 10 basis points from 57.1% in 2018. Sales and marketing expense was 28% of revenue in the fourth quarter of 2019 as compared to 27% in the fourth quarter of 2018. Sales and marketing expenses increased 9.6% in the quarter and $15 million for the full year, due to increased spending in performance marketing initiatives. Product development costs were 9% of revenue in the fourth quarter of 2019 and were largely flat for the full year of 2019.

G&A expenses were 16% as a percentage of revenue as compared to 14% in the fourth quarter of 2018. The G&A increase for the full year was largely attributable to investments we made across cyber security, data science and analytics as well as technology. Adjusted EBITDA margins declined to 14.5% in the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to 20.9% in the fourth quarter of last year.

For the full-year, EBITDA margins declined to 14.8% from 16.9% based on the additional spend in sales and marketing as well as G&A. We recorded a tax expense of $4.3 million compared to a tax expense of $1.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2018. On a full year basis, our effective tax rate is 19.3% as compared to 17.3%. The fourth quarter 2019 tax expenses include $1 million valuation allowance associated with our international operations, and the FIN 48 reserve.

GAAP net income in the fourth quarter was $4.4 million or $0.12 per diluted share. Adjusted net income was $9.2 million or $0.26 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2019 as compared to $20.9 million or $0.59 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2018. The quarterly decline in adjusted net income is largely as a result of the tax expense true-up at the end of this year.

Adjusted net income was $43.7 million or $1.23 per diluted share for the full year 2019 as compared to $55.7 million or a $1.57 per diluted share in 2018. Turning to our balance sheet and cash flows. At the end of the quarter, we had approximately $303 million of cash and cash equivalents, up from $231 million at December 31st, 2018.

Our free cash flow in 2019 of $73.2 million was up 15% from $63.5 million in 2018, largely due to reductions in capex due to lower capitalized research and development costs. Our deferred revenue balance was up as of December 31st, 2019 to $141.9 million from $137.5 million last quarter, an increase of $4.4 million.

The increase in deferred revenue will ultimately be recognized as revenue throughout 2020. We're encouraged by the growth in deferred revenue on our balance sheet and it gives us a good starting point for 2020. Shifting from our financial performance to capital allocation. The Company continually evaluates its capital allocation strategy. As part of this evaluation, the Board has approved a recurring quarterly dividend of $0.17 per share.

The quarterly dividend equates to an annual 1.5% yield on our current stock price. This quarter, the Company will pay the cash dividend on March 19th, 2020 payable to shareholders of record as of March 5th, 2020. We expect that we can grow the dividend in line with earnings growth and we will periodically revisit the payout based on our cash flow profile and alternative uses of capital.

With respect to our M&A strategy, we believe there are significant opportunities to expand our total addressable market into faster growth segments and enhance the value and differentiation of our content with data and insights. While we have a strong cash position, we'll continue to be disciplined as we evaluate M&A opportunities and ensure we have the ability to integrate the acquisitions and that they present compelling industrial logic.

We believe that a balanced approach to capital allocation, combining M&A with a recurring quarterly dividend allows Shutterstock the flexibility to invest and innovate in our core business and provide long-term value to shareholders.

Finally, turning to our guidance. Our expectations for the full year 2020 are as follows. Revenue of $665 million to $690 million, with the midpoint of our range representing approximately 4% revenue growth, adjusted EBITDA of $100 million to $107 million with the midpoint representing EBITDA margins of 15.3%, up 50 basis points from 14.8% in 2019 and representing EBITDA growth of 7.5% year-over-year.

And adjusted earnings per share of between $1.42 and $1.58, representing year-over-year growth of 22% at the midpoint of the range. I'd like to provide some additional color pertaining to our guidance. From a revenue perspective, we expect a differential in growth rates between the e-commerce sales channel, which we expect to grow at approximately 6% and our enterprise channel, which we expect to grow at 2%. The quarterly growth cadence in e-commerce should be consistent with prior years.

The growth in enterprise will show negative comparables in the first half of the year and stronger comparable in the back half of the year as we realize the fruits of our sales force investments. From a margin and cash flow perspective, we're targeting at least 50 basis points of margin expansion in EBITDA in 2020. We expect to see gross margin stable to slightly up, consistent with this past year. Therefore, the operating leverage we will see in the business mainly comes from amortization of the investments we've made in G&A in 2019 combined with prudent ongoing cost management.

In terms of the margin trajectory, during the year in 2020, Q1 margins will be approximately 2% to 3% lower than 2019 average margins as we continue to make sales investments. Our margins should gradually improve over the course of the year, quarter-on-quarter, as we realize the return on those investments. In terms of free cash flow, we expect it to grow in line with EBITDA. I would note however that any additions to cash in Q1 will be nominal due to the timing of the payment of our annual bonuses, as well as the settlement of an earn out from the Flashstock acquisition.

This is the only earn-out payment associated with the acquisition. Other modeling assumptions for 2020 of note, relevant to investors include, stock-based compensation of $28 million, depreciation and amortization expense of $42 million, capital expenditures of $29 million and an effective tax rate in the mid teens.

We'd also expect our share count increase to be in line with historical trends. With our 2020 plan, we believe that we're capitalizing on growth opportunities in our end market, while committing to modest margin expansion to grow our EBITDA. We're further beginning to use our strong cash flows to return capital to shareholders in a predictable manner, by starting with a dividend yield of 1.5%. We will also be opportunistic with respect to the further use of our balance sheet for both share repurchases as well as strategic acquisitions.

We're energized as a new management team and we're excited to be able to deliver a strategic and financial update on our business, management succession, and our capital plans and we very much appreciate your time today.

We look forward to seeing several of you in the weeks and months ahead in some of the investor discussions and in analyst conferences that we'll be attending. And now, Jon, Stan and myself we're happy to answer any questions that you may have. Operator, please go ahead and open the line for questions.

Questions and Answers:

Operator

Thank you, sir. [Operator Instructions]. Your first question comes from Youssef Squali of SunTrust. Your line is now open.

Nathan Mitchell -- SunTrust Robinson Humphrey -- Analyst

Great, thank you. This is Nate Mitchell on for Youssef. First off, Jon, Stan, Jarrod, congrats on your new roles. Stan, maybe you first. If you could maybe flesh out the one or two most important strategic priorities for you in your first year as CEO, particularly as it relates to the core image business, maybe you can update us on the contributions to your business from image versus video versus music. And then, what gives you confidence that you can inflect enterprise in the second half? And then I have a follow-up for Jarrod.

Stan Pavlovsky -- President and Chief Operating Officer

Absolutely, and thanks for the -- for the kind words. Yeah, my priority for this year is a couple of things. First and foremost, as Jarrod mentioned, we do feel that we're going to start to see leverage in the business this year. So we're definitely focused on improving margins, first and foremost. From a revenue perspective, as we look at the different asset types, it's been -- it's been wonderful to see kind of the shift, the mix shift of new and emerging products like our video products or music products start to really have an impact both on the price per download, but also on our revenue, particularly both in -- actually both in enterprise and in e-commerce.

As far as the enterprise growth, we've started to make changes as we talked about over the last couple of quarters, and this last month, we launched a new account segmentation. We launched a new commission plan and we're hiring several new sales position. And so, as we think about the typical ramp-up time and the sales cycle, we definitely expect to see improved results in the back half of the year.

And as Jarrod mentioned, one of the ways that we start to measure that effectiveness is through the deferred revenue balance going forward. So the excitement I have about enterprise is the fact that we are putting our sellers against specific client segments and we are hiring new talent that will [Phonetic] help us execute in that channel. And I'll turn it over to Jarrod to -- or actually I'll turn it over back to you to ask Jarrod your next question.

Nathan Mitchell -- SunTrust Robinson Humphrey -- Analyst

Great. Thank you, Stan. And then, Jarrod, what gives you confidence that you can drive EBITDA growth in 2020 after declining in 2019? And how do you think about the growth in performance marketing expense in 2020?

Jarrod Yahes -- Chief Financial Officer

Sure. So I think we do feel very comfortable with getting the margins back up. I think we're very focused on it as a Company. I think there is kind of a two things that I would call out. One is ongoing prudent cost management and really investing from a milestone perspective as we achieve our objectives during the year.

If you look at the G&A, year-on-year, we put on about $15 million of incremental G&A in 2019 as compared to 2018. As I mentioned in my prepared remarks there were investments in cyber security, technology as well as in other areas and I think we really are well prepared to realize the fruits of those investments, they are fixed investments and as we see revenue growth in this year, we would expect it to drop to the bottom line from more of a contribution margin perspective rather than see growth in those G&A lines.

And from a performance marketing perspective, performance marketing is more linked to revenue than our G&A line. We do feel like there is opportunity within performance marketing to increase the effectiveness of that performance marketing spend. We're very focused on our metrics around customer acquisition costs, customer lifetime value, and the value that we derive from our performance marketing spend. So we think there is interesting opportunities there to get more bang from our buck by leveraging additional channels for performance marketing spend and really taking a test-and-learn perspective with the way we spend what is a fairly large marketing budget in that area.

Nathan Mitchell -- SunTrust Robinson Humphrey -- Analyst

Got it. Appreciate the color. Thanks guys.

Stan Pavlovsky -- President and Chief Operating Officer

Thank you.

Jarrod Yahes -- Chief Financial Officer

Thanks.

Operator

Your next question comes from Brent Thill of Jefferies, your line is now open.

Alexander Giaimo -- Jefferies -- Analyst

Thanks, good morning guys. This is Alex on for Brent. So, two questions from me, one for Jon, and one for Jarrod. For Jon, I guess why was now the right time to step aside after running the Company for so long? And then, was it an abrupt decision or had it been planned out for some time? And then for Jarrod, if you could just talk through the thought process to pay out the quarterly dividends. Just wondering if it's a cognizant decision to being viewed more as a value stock rather than a growth stock or just any general thoughts around that decision. Thanks.

Jonathan Oringer -- Founder, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board

Thanks, Alex. So yeah, this was -- this was a transition that was planned over -- over a long period of time, it was a couple of years ago now that I started to really talk through with the Board about what this Company needs for its next phase and we decided to go through the process of trying to figure out, how to do that, and all of that has rolled out over the past couple of years of work to get to this point.

The truth of the matter is that, we're just at a point where we need a CEO with a different skill set. We believe Stan is that person, and over the past year, working with Stan, it's become clear to me that we're going to get to a great place with him as CEO. And the Board is behind me on that as well.

So, I'd say it was a pretty thoughtful and involved process.

Jarrod Yahes -- Chief Financial Officer

Great. Thanks, Jon. And just with respect to your question on the dividend, I mean, the way we look at the dividend is, this is a more methodical way to return capital to shareholders in a predictable manner that existing and new investors can get behind in order to realize yield on top of the capital appreciation that they would expect from our stock. If you kind of look at the way we're starting the dividend it's $0.17 a share. It's approximately $24 million per annum. It equates to about a 1.5% dividend yield on our stock and if you look at it as a percentage of free cash flow, it's about a third of our free cash flow.

We think there is opportunity to move up from here. If you look historically, the Company has returned capital to shareholders either in the form of share repurchases or in the form of special dividends and what's great about both of those formats is the immediacy of the return that you see, but it's difficult to invest behind because there is no future predictability as to when those returns to shareholders are going to take place. I think with our quarterly dividend, we will have that predictability of return of capital to shareholders, we'll also have the flexibility to continue to reinvest in our business for innovation as well as make acquisitions.

So it's not an or, it's an and, where we'll be able to make investments in the Company, do M&A, and payout and hopefully grow the dividend over time. We do recognize the slowdown in top line growth at the Company and I think the dividend is really a recognition that there is a significant amount of capital on the balance sheet of the Company, and it is in our fiduciary best interest to return some of that capital to shareholders in a predictable manner that benefits them.

So I think we feel quite good about this decision and feel like it's a great opportunity for shareholders as well.

Alexander Giaimo -- Jefferies -- Analyst

Thank you, guys and congrats to all three of you.

Jonathan Oringer -- Founder, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board

Thank you.

Stan Pavlovsky -- President and Chief Operating Officer

Thank you.
