International Commercial Television, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

Return to Profitability; Continued Expansion of Product Portfolio & Sales Channels; Conference Call Begins Today at 4:30pm EDT

WAYNE, PA--(Marketwired - August 12, 2014) - International Commercial Television, Inc. (OTCQB: ICTL) (CNSX: ITV) (or "ICTV" or the "Company"), a direct response marketing and branding company focused on the health, wellness and beauty sector, today reported financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2014. Also, of note, the corporate name change to ICTV Brands, Inc. is expected to become effective August 20, 2014.

Second Quarter 2014 Highlights:

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $552,000, excluding non-cash stock-based compensation
  • Operating income of $160,000
  • Operating income included $155,000 of product development and production expenditures associated with new product expansion
  • Positive cash flow from operating activities of $477,000
  • Current working capital ratio improves to 2.5X
  • Increased cash balance to $1.9 million, from $1.7 million at the end of the first quarter
  • Closed on a one year $500,000 credit facility with JPMorgan Chase Bank
  • Attained Canadian Stock Exchange listing in April
  • Continued to expand DermaWand's multi-channel distribution, including international and retail
  • DermaWand next-generation device on track to be ready by end of 2014
  • Added Doug Crouthers as Director of International Sales
  • Increased international distribution, including France, Hungary, Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina
  • Coral Actives nearing re-launch and marketing campaign
  • Derma Brilliance positive data from completed clinical study and new marketing efforts

Kelvin Claney, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are pleased with our second quarter results and the Company's continued growth. Our new corporate identity of 'ICTV Brands' is at a major inflection point, having progressed from a one product DermaWand company to a family of branded products in the health, wellness and beauty sector. I am confident that we have the right team and infrastructure in place to continue to build a diversified product portfolio which will position the Company for even greater success in the coming years." 

Financial Results:
Revenues for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 decreased due to management's calculated decision to lower its DermaWand media marketing spend during a slower response period. One of the driving factors was a decrease in the airings of the Spanish language version of the DermaWand infomercial. ICTV is in the process of creating a new version of the Spanish language show, which is expected to air in the fourth quarter of 2014. In addition, the Company did not air on live televised home shopping in the first six months of 2014, but expects to resume airings in the third quarter of 2014.

The Company continues to invest in production and research and development related expenditures. In January 2014, ICTV launched a clinical trial for Derma Brilliance, a new cosmetic skincare resurfacing device system, which is expected to launch in September 2014. In May 2014, ICTV launched a clinical trial for Coral Actives, an acne-care product line. In addition, ICTV began a double blind placebo test in Europe on the DermaWand, with the goal of opening new markets around the world in the fourth quarter of 2014. Elastin-rp, one of the Company's skin-care lines, launched its media campaign in January 2014, resulting in all related production expenditures being incurred in the first half of 2014. Other production expenses included a new short-form spot for the DermaWand campaign and high-definition enhancements to the long-form infomercial.

Second Quarter 2014 Compared to Second Quarter 2013:
Revenues for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014 were $7.8 million, compared to $10.5 million for the second quarter of 2013. International revenue to third-party distributors grew by 58% to $2.0 million. Gross profit margin of 68.6% was realized in the second quarter 2014, slightly down from 71.8% a year earlier. Operating income for the second quarter was $160,000 compared to $367,000 in the second quarter of 2013. Of note, operating income for the second quarter 2014 included non-cash expenses and investment (research and development and new production) of approximately $546,000, which represents a $109,000 increase from the second quarter of 2013. These second quarter 2014 expenses were comprised of stock based compensation expense of approximately $391,000, product development and clinical testing expenditures of approximately $81,000, and new production expenses of approximately $74,000.

Net income for the second quarter was $159,000, compared to net income of $649,000 in the second quarter of 2013. The resulting EPS is $0.01, as compared to $0.03 in the comparable quarter a year earlier. Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (Adjusted EBITDA) was $552,000. 

Six Months Ended June 30, 2014 Compared to Six Months Ended June 30, 2013:
Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2014 were $17.6 million, compared to $22.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013.

Operating loss for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was $312,000, compared to an operating profit of $1.9 million in the six months ended June 30, 2013. Of note, the operating income for the first half of 2014 included non-cash expenses and investment (research and development and new production) of approximately $981,000, which represents a $520,000 increase from the first half of 2013. These first half 2014 expenses were comprised of stock based compensation expense of approximately $590,000, product development and clinical testing expenditures of approximately $225,000, and new production expenses of approximately $166,000. 

Net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was $356,000, compared to net income of $1.8 million in the six months ended June 30, 2013. The resulting EPS is ($0.02), as compared to $0.08 in the comparable quarter a year earlier. Adjusted EBITDA was $248,000. 

Balance Sheet as of June 30, 2014:
As of June 30, 2014, the Company had $1.9 million in cash, compared to $1.3 million at December 31, 2013, and reflects continued investment in expenditures on new product acquisition and development. The Company had working capital of $3,200,000 at June 30, 2014, compared to $2,900,000 at December 31, 2013, which demonstrates our strong short-term liquidity. We have also reached a positive shareholders' equity of approximately $2.6 million, up from $2.1 million at the end of the first quarter 2014. The note payable to shareholder was reduced by $40,000 in the second quarter to a balance of $154,000. In addition, we generated positive cash flows from operations of approximately $477,000 in the six months ended June 30, 2014. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, on July 2, we closed on a one year $500,000 Credit Facility with JPMorgan Chase Bank. While there are no current plans to utilize the Credit Facility, we have access to it for working capital and other general corporate purposes as needed. 

Richard Ransom, President, stated, "I am encouraged about our return to profitability in the second quarter, while continuing to invest in our growth for the future. In addition to advancing our new brands to market, as a company we have made great strides this quarter in developing new distribution channels for our products in the areas of social media marketing, live television shopping and retail. We are targeting continued growth in 2014 and a goal of becoming a $100mm+ revenue company in the next 2-3 years."
