Onstream Media Corporation Announces Fiscal 2012 and Fourth Quarter Financial Results

- Company Reports Record Annual Revenues and Reduction in Operating Expenses -

POMPANO BEACH, Fla., Jan. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Onstream Media Corporation (OTCQB: ONSM), a leading online service provider of live and on-demand corporate audio and web communications and virtual event technology with integrated social media marketing tools, reported yesterday its financial results for the fiscal year and fourth quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Highlights

  • Consolidated operating revenue was approximately $18.2 million for the year ended September 30, 2012, an increase of approximately $459,000 (2.6%) from the prior fiscal year, due to increased revenues of the Audio and Web Conferencing Services Group. This represents a new corporate record.
  • Audio and Web Conferencing Services Group revenues were approximately $10.4 million for the year ended September 30, 2012, an increase of approximately $835,000 (8.7%) from the prior fiscal year. This represents a new Group record, with the increase primarily a result of increased audio conferencing revenues in the Infinite division.
  • Onstream's EBITDA, as adjusted, for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was approximately $31,000, an approximately $351,000 improvement as compared to negative EBITDA, as adjusted, of approximately ($320,000) for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011.
  • Cash flow from operating activities (before changes in current assets and liabilities other than cash) for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was approximately $125,000, compared to cash used in operating activities of approximately $12,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2011. 
  • Cash flow from operating activities (before changes in current assets and liabilities other than cash) for the year ended September 30, 2012 was approximately $677,000, representing an increase of approximately $406,000, or 149.5%, as compared to approximately $271,000 operating cash flow for fiscal 2011.
  • On November 30, 2012 Onstream acquired certain assets and operations of Intella2 Inc., a San Diego-based communications company ("Intella2"). The acquisition included a list of over 2,500 customers as well as software licenses, equipment and network infrastructure and a non-compete. The service capabilities acquired from Intella2 include audio conferencing, web conferencing, text messaging, and voicemail.

Management Commentary

Randy Selman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Onstream Media, stated, "We made several strategic changes during fiscal 2012, which have begun to take hold and bode well for improved performance in fiscal 2013 and beyond. While fiscal 2012 proved to be a transitional year, revenues for the year were a record and our expenses were lowered while maintaining strong gross margin levels. In addition, during fiscal 2012 we saw an increase in our cash flow from operating activities, as we define it, and that represented the second fiscal year in a row that we have reported positive cash flow from operating activities for the full year."

Mr. Selman added, "In addition, we were able to acquire certain assets and operations of Intella2, shortly after the close of fiscal 2012. The total preliminary purchase price was approximately $1.1 million of which we paid approximately $760,000 in cash as of November 30, 2012. We are expecting to reflect positive operating cash flow from these acquired operations in our fiscal 2013 financial statements for the ten months from December 1, 2012 through September 30, 2013."

Mr. Selman continued, "Looking into fiscal 2013, we believe that our webcasting division revenues will be favorably impacted by a comprehensive update to our webcasting platform which we are releasing this month. Additionally, we also expect webcasting sales to increase as a result of the implementation of a fixed rate pricing plan for MarketPlace365 that includes webcasting services and more particularly, our webinar services. This new plan enables the show organizer to sell inexpensively or give away the exhibitor booths and instead charge for the webinars as a lead generation tool."

Mr. Selman concluded, "We are pleased with the initiatives we implemented in fiscal 2012 and believe the groundwork has been established for a successful fiscal 2013. We anticipate that we have several key catalysts going forward that should benefit shareholders, specifically speaking, our acquisition of Intella2, our new webcasting platform, and continued expense controls. With these items in place, we are confident in showing improved top and bottom lines for fiscal 2013."

Financial Discussion

Three Months Results

Our consolidated revenues of approximately $4.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012  represented a decrease of approximately $167,000 versus our revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2011. However, this decline was primarily related to the loss of a single customer that we were providing streaming services to at very little margin, as part of a larger business relationship that is still in place. Therefore, the loss of this customer and the related revenues did not have a material impact on our net operating results.

Audio and Web Conferencing Services Group revenues were approximately $2.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012, an increase of approximately $13,000, or 0.5%, versus the corresponding quarter of the prior fiscal year.

Digital Media Services Group revenues were approximately $1.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012, a decrease of approximately $180,000, or 9.7%, from the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year, primarily due to the loss of the streaming customer discussed above.

Gross margin of approximately $2.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012, representing 67.8% of total revenues, was an increase of approximately $18,000, or 0.6%, as compared to the year-ago quarter.

Onstream's fourth quarter fiscal 2012 net loss of approximately $1.0 million, or $(0.08) per share, was based on approximately 12.6 million weighted average shares outstanding and represented an approximately $1.5 million, or 59.7% decrease from the fourth quarter fiscal 2011 net loss of approximately $2.5 million, or $(0.22) per share, which was based on approximately 11.4 million weighted average shares outstanding.

Onstream's EBITDA, as adjusted, for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was approximately $31,000, an approximately $351,000 improvement as compared to negative EBITDA, as adjusted, of approximately ($320,000) for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011.

Cash flow from operating activities (before changes in current assets and liabilities other than cash) for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was approximately $125,000, compared to cash used in operating activities of approximately $12,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2011. 

Twelve Months Results

Consolidated operating revenue was approximately $18.2 million for the year ended September 30, 2012, an increase of approximately $459,000 (2.6%) from the prior fiscal year, due to increased revenues of the Audio and Web Conferencing Services Group.

Audio and Web Conferencing Services Group revenues were approximately $10.4 million for the year ended September 30, 2012, an increase of approximately $835,000 (8.7%) from the prior fiscal year. This increase was primarily a result of increased audio conferencing revenues in the Infinite division.

Infinite division revenues increased by approximately $767,000 (10.1%) for the year ended September 30, 2012 as compared to the prior fiscal year. This was due to a 16.9% increase in the number of minutes billed by the Infinite division, which was approximately 123.0 million for the year ended September 30, 2012, as compared to approximately 105.2 million minutes billed for the prior fiscal year. The revenue impact of this increase in billed minutes was partially offset by a decrease in the average revenue per minute, which was approximately 7.0 cents for the year ended September 30, 2012, as compared to approximately 7.3 cents for the prior fiscal year.

Digital Media Services Group revenues were approximately $7.7 million for the year ended September 30, 2012, a decrease of approximately $377,000 (4.6%) from the prior fiscal year, primarily due to the loss of the streaming customer discussed above.

Consolidated gross margin was approximately $12.1 million for the year ended September 30, 2012, an increase of approximately $281,000 (2.4%) from the prior fiscal year. Consolidated gross margin percentage was 66.4% for the year ended September 30, 2012, versus 66.5% for the prior fiscal year.

Onstream's net loss of approximately $2.6 million, or $(0.22) per share, for fiscal 2012 was based on approximately 12.2 million weighted average shares outstanding and represented an approximately $2.6 million, or 49.3%, decrease from the net loss for fiscal 2011 of approximately $5.2 million, or $(0.52) per share, which was based on approximately 10.0 million weighted average shares outstanding.

Onstream's EBITDA, as adjusted, for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2012 was negative by approximately $13,000, an approximately 98.6% improvement as compared to EBITDA, as adjusted, for fiscal 2011, which was negative by approximately $933,000.

Cash flow from operating activities (before changes in current assets and liabilities other than cash) for the year ended September 30, 2012 was approximately $677,000, representing an increase of approximately $406,000, or 149.5%, as compared to approximately $271,000 for fiscal 2011. 

Teleconference

Onstream's leadership team will conduct a conference call at 4:30 p.m. ET today (Wednesday, January 16, 2013) to discuss those financial results. During this teleconference, Mr. Randy Selman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Onstream and Mr. Robert Tomlinson, the company's Chief Financial Officer, will also discuss the company's recent acquisition of Intella2 as well as provide an outlook for fiscal 2013.

EBITDA, as adjusted, represents EBITDA, as defined above, adjusted for impairment loss on goodwill and other intangible assets and for 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.
