POMPANO BEACH, Fla., April 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Onstream Media Corporation (OTCQB: ONSM), a leading online service provider of corporate audio and web communications, including webcasting, webinar, conferencing and virtual event technology, has reported its financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2014, the three months ended December 31, 2013.

Summary

  • Revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 were approximately $4.2 million as compared to approximately $4.3 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2013. This decrease was the result of a reduction in webcasting revenues, partially offset by increased audio and web conferencing revenues.  
  • Audio and Web Conferencing Services Group revenues were approximately $2.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013, an increase of approximately $171,000 (6.6%) from the first quarter of fiscal 2013.
  • Consolidated gross margin percentage was 71.7% for the three months ended December 31, 2013, versus 70.3% for the first quarter of fiscal 2013.
  • EBITDA, as adjusted, for the three months ended December 31, 2013 was approximately $258,000, an increase of approximately $159,000 (160.4%), as compared to EBITDA, as adjusted, of approximately $99,000 for the first quarter of fiscal 2013.

Management Commentary

Randy Selman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Onstream Media, stated, "Although we did experience an overall revenue decline in the first quarter, as compared to the same quarter of the prior fiscal year, as the result of a reduction in webcasting revenues, our EBITDA, as adjusted, for the quarter was approximately 160% greater than EBITDA as adjusted for the same quarter of the previous year."

Mr. Selman continued, "We believe that our webcasting division revenues will be favorably impacted during fiscal 2014 by the comprehensive update to our Visual Webcaster webcasting platform (VW4), which we released in January 2013 and have been updating with new features since then. We will be updating VW4 with additional features later this year including additional billing and reporting capabilities and enhanced CPE (continuing professional education) functionality. We believe that these new features, in addition to recently added features such as a live phone option and the ability to connect to third party encoders, could accelerate the rate of adoption of VW4 from what we have experienced thus far. Since an increasing number of companies are handling production tasks in house, we also expect to see increased sales from iEncode, a service that allows our customers to self-encode their live professional video and attach the streams to the Visual Webcaster system in the cloud. This allows them to take advantage of using their internal staff and facilities while still utilizing all of the Visual Webcaster features. Also in development is another "do it yourself" large audience webcasting product that can be run from the customer's desktop and will be available on a fixed cost monthly subscription basis that can be purchased on-line. We also expect to see increased webcasting sales as a result of our Virtual Conference Center which is a multiple event conference venue with integrated webcasting."

Mr. Selman added, "We believe we are on track to show improvement in our revenues, EBITDA and our operating cash flow for the remainder of fiscal 2014, as compared to the corresponding period of fiscal 2013. During the period from June 2013 through January 2014 we made certain headcount reductions representing approximately $962,000 in annualized savings, which we expect will reduce our compensation and professional fee expenditures by approximately $593,000 in aggregate for the remainder of fiscal 2014 as compared to the corresponding period of fiscal 2013. In addition during that same period we renegotiated various supplier contracts representing approximately $331,000 in annualized savings, which we expect will cumulatively reduce our cost of sales and other general and administrative expenditures by approximately $169,000 for the remainder of fiscal 2014 as compared to the corresponding period of fiscal 2013."

Financial Discussion

Consolidated operating revenue was approximately $4.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013, a decrease of approximately $64,000 (1.5%) from the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year, due to decreased revenues of the Digital Media Services Group. However, Audio and Web Conferencing Services Group revenues were approximately $2.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013, an increase of approximately $171,000 (6.6%) from the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year. This increase arose from the operations of our OCC (Onstream Conferencing Corporation) division, which acquired Intella2 Inc., a San Diego-based communications company on November 30, 2012. Accordingly, three months of OCC revenues were recognized during the three months ended December 31, 2013 versus just one month of OCC revenues the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year.  

Digital Media Services Group revenues were approximately $1.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013, a decrease of approximately $235,000 (14.0%) from the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year, primarily due to a decrease in webcasting division revenues.

Revenues of the webcasting division decreased by approximately $205,000 (14.9%) for the three months ended December 31, 2013 as compared to the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year. The approximately 1,100 webcasts we produced during the three months ended December 31, 2013 was approximately 300 less than the number of webcasts we produced during the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year. The impact on revenue arising from the decreased number of events was partially offset by an increase in the average revenue per webcast event to $1,178 for the three months ended December 31, 2013, which represented an increase of $120, or 11.3%, from the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year.

Consolidated gross margin was approximately $3.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013, an increase of approximately $10,000 (0.3%) from the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year. Our consolidated gross margin percentage was 71.7% for the three months ended December 31, 2013, versus 70.3% for the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year. This increase in percentage was due to reductions in webcasting and network usage cost of sales (proportionally greater than the reduction in revenues).

Consolidated operating expenses were approximately $3.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013, a decrease of approximately $294,000 (8.8%) from the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year. The decrease was due to an approximately $116,000 decrease in professional fee expense and an approximately $115,000 decrease in depreciation and amortization expense, both as compared to the first quarter of the prior fiscal year.

Cash provided by operating activities (before changes in current assets and liabilities other than cash) for the three months ended December 31, 2013 was approximately $71,000, compared to approximately $10,000 used in operations for the three months ended December 31, 2012. This approximately $81,000 improvement was primarily due to decreased operating expenses, as discussed above, partially offset by an increase in cash payments for interest.

Onstream's first quarter fiscal 2014 net loss of approximately $578,000, or $(0.03) loss per share, was based on approximately 22.0 million weighted average shares outstanding, as compared to a first quarter fiscal 2013 net loss of approximately $715,000, or $(0.05) loss per share, which was based on approximately 13.7 million weighted average shares outstanding. The decreased net loss was primarily due to decreased operating expenses, as discussed above, partially offset by an increase in interest expense.

Onstream's EBITDA, as adjusted, for the three months ended December 31, 2013 was approximately $258,000, an increase of approximately $159,000 (160.4%), as compared to EBITDA, as adjusted, of approximately $99,000 for the first quarter of fiscal 2013.

Teleconference

Because of the timing of the release of these results and the filing of the related 10-Q, as well as the timing of the filing of the most recent 10-K, Onstream's leadership team will combine its conference call discussing the financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2014, as well as for the period ended September 30, 2013, with a discussion of the financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2014, the six and three month periods ended March 31, 2014. The time and date of that combined conference call will be announced by us shortly before the 10-Q for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 is filed.

EBITDA is defined as earnings (loss) before interest expense, depreciation, income taxes and amortization.

 

EBITDA, as adjusted, represents EBITDA, as defined above, adjusted for compensation paid with common shares and other equity, debt extinguishment loss and gain from adjustment of derivative liability to fair value.

 

EBITDA and EBITDA, as adjusted, are non-U.S. GAAP financial measures.

 

Management believes EBITDA and EBITDA, as adjusted, to be meaningful indicators of our performance that provides useful information to investors regarding our financial condition and results of operations. Presentation of EBITDA and EBITDA, as adjusted, is commonly used by financial analysts and others who follow our industry to measure operating performance. While management considers EBITDA and EBITDA, as adjusted, to be an important measure of comparative operating performance, it should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, net income and other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). EBITDA and EBITDA, as adjusted, do not reflect cash available to fund cash requirements. Not all companies calculate EBITDA or EBITDA, as adjusted, in the same manner and the measure as presented may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures presented by other companies.
