Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Total revenues were US$3.06 million (RMB19.21 million) in the third quarter of 2012, representing an increase of 0.9% from US$3.03 million in the second quarter of 2012 and a decrease of 27.7% from US$4.23 million in the third quarter of 2011.

In the second quarter of 2011, the Company started to generate advertising revenues primarily from performance advertising services using a system called Application Advertisement ("AA"). The performance advertising revenue was realized through an affiliated advertising agent which is under common control of Shanda Interactive Entertainment Limited, the Company's majority shareholder. The Company generated 94.6% of total revenues in the third quarter of 2012 through this affiliated advertising agent, as compared to 94.8% of total revenues in the second quarter of 2012.

Cost of revenues was US$3.66 million (RMB23.02 million) in the third quarter of 2012, remained flat compared to the second quarter of 2012, decreased 33.2% from US$5.48 million in the third quarter of 2011. Gross loss was US$0.61 million (RMB3.81 million) in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to a gross loss of US$0.63 million in the second quarter of 2012 and a gross loss of US$1.25 million in the third quarter of 2011. Non-GAAP gross loss, which is herein defined as a gross loss excluding share-based compensation expenses, was US$0.58 million (RMB3.63 million) in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to a non-GAAP gross loss of US$0.66 million in the second quarter of 2012 and US$1.22 million in the third quarter of 2011.

Operating expenses were US$2.85 million (RMB17.91 million) in the third quarter of 2012, representing an increase of 73.3% from US$1.64 million in the second quarter of 2012 and a decrease of 74.7% from US$11.28 million in the third quarter of 2011. Non-GAAP operating expenses, which is herein defined as operating expenses excluding share-based compensation expenses, were US$2.88 million (RMB18.11 million) in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to non-GAAP operating expenses of US$1.67 million in the second quarter of 2012 and US$10.85 million in the third quarter of 2011. The sequential increase was mainly attributable to (1) a net increase of US$0.61 million (RMB 3.82 million) in litigation expenses due to the second quarter reversal of accrued liabilities related to favorable settlements of copyright infringement and (2) a US$0.47 million (RMB2.95 million) change in bad debt expense due to the decreased collection of accounts receivable previously written down.

Operating loss was US$3.46 million (RMB21.71 million) in the third quarter of 2012, representing an increase of 51.9% from US$2.28 million in the second quarter of 2012 and a decrease of 72.4% from US$12.53 million in the third quarter of 2011. Non-GAAP operating loss, which reflects the exclusion of share-based compensation expenses, was US$3.46 million (RMB21.75 million) in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to the non-GAAP operating loss of US$2.34 million in the second quarter of 2012 and US$12.07 million in the third quarter of 2011.

Net loss was US$3.25 million (RMB20.43 million) in the third quarter of 2012, representing an increase of 120.9% from US$1.47 million in the second quarter of 2012 and a decrease of 75.0% from US$12.98 million in the third quarter of 2011. Non-GAAP net loss, which reflects the exclusion of share-based compensation expenses, was US$3.26 million (RMB20.46 million) in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to US$1.53 million in the second quarter of 2012 and US$12.52 million in the third quarter of 2011. The sequential increase in net loss was primarily attributable to (1) a US$0.73 million (RMB4.59 million) decrease in government subsidy benefits in the third quarter of 2012; (2) the US$0.61 million (RMB3.82 million) net increase in litigation expenses due to the second quarter reversal of accrued liabilities related to favorable settlements of copyright infringement and (3) the US$0.47 million (RMB2.95 million) of changes in bad debt expense. 

Net loss attributable to Ku6 Media was US$3.25 million (RMB20.43 million) in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to US$1.47 million in the second quarter of 2012 and US$12.98 million in the third quarter of 2011. Non-GAAP net loss attributable to Ku6 Media, reflecting the exclusion of share based compensation expenses, was US$3.26 million (RMB20.46 million) in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to the non-GAAP net loss attributable to Ku6 Media of US$1.53 million in the second quarter of 2012 and US$12.52 million in the third quarter of 2011.

Net loss attributable to Ku6 Media per basic and diluted ADS was US$0.07 (RMB0.44) in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to US$0.03 in the second quarter of 2012 and US$0.26 in the third quarter of 2011. Weighted average ADSs used to calculate basic and diluted net loss per ADS were 48.3 million in the third quarter of 2012, 50.2 million in the second quarter of 2012 and 50.2 million in the third quarter of 2011.

Adjusted EBITDA loss, which is herein defined as net loss attributable to Ku6 Media before interest income, interest expenses, income taxes, depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization and write-down of licensed video copyrights), further adjusted for share-based compensation expenses, equity in loss of affiliates and other non-operating items, was US$2.58 million (RMB16.23 million) in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to adjusted EBITDA loss of US$1.48 million in the second quarter of 2012 and US$10.58 million in the third quarter of 2011. The increase was primarily due to the increase in operating expenses.

As of September 30, 2012, the Company had US$12.55 million (RMB78.84 million) in cash and cash equivalents, compared to US$23.28 million as of June 30, 2012. The decrease was primarily due to the cash payment for share repurchase in the amount of US$8.08 million (RMB50.80 million) in the third quarter of 2012.

Recent Business Developments

The Company's Repurchase and Immediate Retirement of Ordinary Shares and ADSs

On July 12 2012, the Company's shareholders approved, at the Annual General Meeting, a repurchase (and retirement thereafter) of certain of the Company's outstanding shares. This repurchase was settled with cash on July 30, 2012. In this transaction, the Company repurchased and immediately retired in the aggregate 269,409,276 ordinary shares formerly held by Mr. Shanyou Li (the original founder and former CEO), Mr. Zhizhong Hao (Former Senior VP), Ms. Xingye Zeng (Former VP of Sales) and Kumella Holdings Limited (an investment entity controlled by Mr. Shanyou Li), at a price of US$ 0.0291 per share, representing a premium to the Company's current per share price (in total, such repurchase amounting to approximately US$7.84 million). The Company also repurchased and immediately retired 79,717 ADSs (each ADS representing 100 ordinary shares) held by Mr. Shanyou Li at a price of US$2.91 per ADS (in total, approximately US$0.23 million), which represented a premium to the then-current share price.

Given the volatile nature of the Company's per-ADS price as an appropriate measure of fair value and the susceptibility of the per-share price to significant changes on small trading volumes, the Company engaged with an independent financial advisor to assist its management in determining the appropriate range indicative of the fair value per ADS. The repurchase price paid fell within an appropriate indicative range of fair value. The Company recorded this transaction via a charge to additional paid in capital for the repurchase amount.

Cooperation with NetEase

In September 2012, the Company entered into an agreement with NetEase, Inc. ("NetEase," NASDAQ: NTES), a well-known internet company in China. Pursuant to the agreement, Ku6 Media will provide technology support for the video related activities on NetEase's microblog platform, including video uploading and video sharing. Meanwhile, NetEase's microblog users will be given access to Ku6 Media video contents via embedded Ku6 Media video players.

Share Repurchase Program of 2011

Pursuant to a share repurchase program announced December 30, 2011, the Company's Board of Directors have authorized the Company to repurchase up to an aggregate of US$3.2 million of its outstanding ADSs from time to time following the date thereof, based on market conditions. As of September 30, 2012, the Company has repurchased 11,100 ADSs from open market under this program.

Forward-looking Statements

This news release contains statements of a forward-looking nature. These statements are made under the "safe harbor" provisions of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. You can identify these forward-looking statements by terminology such as "believes," "could," "expects," "may," "might," "should," "will," or "would," and by similar statements. Forward-looking statements are not historical facts, but instead represent only the Company's beliefs regarding future events, many of which, by their nature, are inherently uncertain and outside of its control. It is possible that the Company's actual results and financial condition may differ, possibly materially, from the anticipated results and financial condition indicated in these forward-looking statements. Some of the risks and important factors that could affect the Company's future results and financial condition include: continued competitive pressures in China's internet video portal market; changes in technology and consumer demand in this market; the risk that Ku6 Media may not be able to control its expenses in the future; regulatory changes in China with respect to the operations of internet video portal websites; the success of Ku6 Media's ability to sell advertising and other services on its websites; and other risks outlined in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission,including the Company's  annual report on Form 20-F. Ku6 Media does not undertake any obligation to update this forward-looking information, except as required under law.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement Ku6 Media's consolidated financial results presented in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"), Ku6 Media uses the following measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the SEC in evaluating its business: non-GAAP gross profit or loss, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP product development expenses, non-GAAP sales and marketing expenses, non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP operating loss, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss attributable to Ku6 Media and adjusted EBITDA loss.  We define non-GAAP gross profit or loss, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP product development expenses, non-GAAP sales and marketing expenses, non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP operating loss, non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss attributable to Ku6 Media as the respective nearest comparable GAAP financial measure excluding share-based compensation expenses. We define adjusted EBITDA loss as net loss attributable to Ku6 Media before interest income, interest expenses, income taxes, depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization and write-down of licensed video copyrights), further adjusted for share-based compensation expenses, equity in loss of affiliates and other non-operating items. We present non-GAAP financial measures because they are used by our management to evaluate our operating performance. We also believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our consolidated results of operations in the same manner as our management and in comparing financial results across accounting periods and to those of our peer companies. A limitation of using non-GAAP financial measures is that non-GAAP measures exclude share-based compensation charges that have been and will continue to be significant recurring expenses in Ku6 Media's business for the foreseeable future.

The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned "Reconciliations of non-GAAP results of operations measures to the nearest comparable GAAP financial measures" at the end of this release.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is going to require a new way of thinking and of developing software for speed, security and innovation. This requires IT leaders to balance business as usual while anticipating for the next market and technology trends. Cloud provides the right IT asset portfolio to help today’s IT leaders manage the old and prepare for the new. Today the cloud conversation is evolving from private and public to hybrid. This session will provide use cases and insights to reinforce the value of the network in helping organizations to maximize their company’s cloud experience.
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have spoken with, or attended presentations from, utilities in the United States, South America, Asia and Europe. This session will provide a look at the CREPE drivers for SmartGrids and the solution spaces used by SmartGrids today and planned for the near future. All organizations can learn from SmartGrid’s use of Predictive Maintenance, Demand Prediction, Cloud, Big Data and Customer-facing Dashboards...
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices – computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors – connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo in Silicon Valley. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be!
Noted IoT expert and researcher Joseph di Paolantonio (pictured below) has joined the @ThingsExpo faculty. Joseph, who describes himself as an “Independent Thinker” from DataArchon, will speak on the topic of “Smart Grids & Managing Big Utilities.” Over his career, Joseph di Paolantonio has worked in the energy, renewables, aerospace, telecommunications, and information technology industries. His expertise is in data analysis, system engineering, Bayesian statistics, data warehouses, business intelligence, data mining, predictive methods, and very large databases (VLDB). Prior to DataArchon, he served as a VP and Principal Analyst with Constellation Group. He is a member of the Boulder (Colo.) Brain Trust, an organization with a mission “to benefit the Business Intelligence and data management industry by providing pro bono exchange of information between vendors and independent analysts on new trends and technologies and to provide vendors with constructive feedback on their of...
Software AG helps organizations transform into Digital Enterprises, so they can differentiate from competitors and better engage customers, partners and employees. Using the Software AG Suite, companies can close the gap between business and IT to create digital systems of differentiation that drive front-line agility. We offer four on-ramps to the Digital Enterprise: alignment through collaborative process analysis; transformation through portfolio management; agility through process automation and integration; and visibility through intelligent business operations and big data.
There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.

The Transparent Cloud-computing Consortium (abbreviation: T-Cloud Consortium) will conduct research activities into changes in the computing model as a result of collaboration between "device" and "cloud" and the creation of new value and markets through organic data processing High speed and high quality networks, and dramatic improvements in computer processing capabilities, have greatly changed the nature of applications and made the storing and processing of data on the network commonplace. These technological reforms have not only changed computers and smartphones, but are also changing the data processing model for all information devices. In particular, in the area known as M2M (Machine-To-Machine), there are great expectations that information with a new type of value can be produced using a variety of devices and sensors saving/sharing data via the network and through large-scale cloud-type data processing. This consortium believes that attaching a huge number of devic...
