PNI Digital Media Reports Fiscal 2013 First Quarter Financial Results

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/14/13 -- PNI Digital Media (TSX:PN)(OTCBB:PNDMF) ("PNI" or the "Company"), the leading innovator in digital media solutions for retailers, reported financial results for the fiscal 2013 first quarter ended December 31st, 2012 and discussed key operational developments for the quarter.

"In this past quarter 26% of all orders over our platform were for greeting and photo cards within our customers sites," said Kyle Hall, Chief Executive Officer of PNI Digital Media. "Our stationery and photo markets are merging quickly and we are well positioned to take advantage of this evolving market for personalized content as it extends itself into higher value cards and invitations while leveraging our retailers' large existing consumer bases. Furthermore, we saw record transactions from mobile devices fueled by our investment in new apps for both smart phones and tablets. This investment in mobile not only enabled us to drive incremental transactions but is also opening entirely new channels for our retailers as consumer behavior shifts towards mobile. Lastly, by using our recently announced platform API, any qualified software developer can add their photo app or photo product to our platform on their own, giving our platform an almost limitless range of product innovation for our retailers, and further positioning our platform as they key venue for retailers who want to drive high value transactions from personalized products."

Fiscal 2013 First Quarter Operational Highlights


--  Processed a record 6.9 million transactions during the quarter, a 3%
    increase from the same period last year 
--  Processed $103.5 million in online transactions over our platform on
    behalf of our retail partners, a 2.2% increase compared to the same
    quarter in fiscal 2012 
--  Set a new peak day record for transactions, conducting 270,000
    transactions in a single day 
--  Successfully launched a new platform API portal, enabling third parties
    to submit orders over the Company's platform, creating incremental
    transactions on behalf of the Company's retail clients 
--  Launched an all-new Android OS mobile app on behalf of the Company's
    retail clients, further extending the Company's mobile apps and
    solutions for its retail clients. The first implementation was with
    Tesco PLC 
--  Announced a new partnership with Aperion Inc. for the provision of
    premium unique themes and designs available only to retailers using the
    Company's platform 
--  The Company adopted a majority voting policy for elections of Directors

Fiscal 2013 First Quarter Fiscal Highlights


--  Revenue for the quarter of $6.6 million compared to $6.9 million in the
    first quarter of fiscal 2012. The decrease in revenue was predominantly
    due to a $0.4 million decrease in transaction fees 
--  Working capital increased to $4.9 million at December 31, 2012 from $4.8
    million at September 30, 2012 
--  Generated IFRS loss for the quarter of $0.3 million compared to $1.0
    million in income in the first quarter of fiscal 2012 
--  Non-IFRS adjusted EBITDA1 was $0.3 million compared to a non-IFRS
    adjusted EBITDA of $1.7 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2012.
    The reduced adjusted EBITDA in the current period was due in part to a
    large amount of capitalized personnel costs associated with the
    development of internal use software in the first quarter of 2012. In
    comparison, no internal development costs met the criteria for
    capitalization as internal use software in the first quarter of 2013 
--  The Company ended the quarter with $3.7 million in cash and cash
    equivalents and no debt

Notes:

1 - Non-IFRS Measures

The Company continues to provide all information required in accordance with IFRS, but believes evaluating its ongoing operating results may not be as useful if an investor is limited to reviewing only IFRS financial measures. Accordingly, the Company uses non-IFRS financial information to evaluate its ongoing operations and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. The primary non-IFRS financial measures utilized by the Company include adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA is non-IFRS financial measure which the Company defines as net profit plus amortization, impairment, interest expense, tax expense, share-based compensation expense and unrealized foreign exchange loss (gain).

To supplement the Company's financial statements presented on an IFRS basis, we believe that these non-IFRS measures provide useful information about the Company's core operating results and thus are appropriate to enhance the overall understanding of the Company's past financial performance and its prospects for the future. These adjustments to the Company's IFRS results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of the Company's underlying operational results and trends and performance. Management uses these non-IFRS measures to evaluate the Company's financial results, develop budgets, manage expenditures, and determine employee compensation. The presentation of additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for or superior to net (loss) earnings or net (loss) earnings per share determined in accordance with IFRS.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic • Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...
