Second Quarter 2014 Financial Review

Total revenue was $13.4 million compared to $11.0 million for the second quarter of 2013, an increase of $2.4 million, or 22%, reflecting revenue growth across the TV Everywhere, Pro Sports and College Sports divisions.

Pro Sports revenue increased 19% to $5.7 million from $4.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013, primarily due to growth in fixed fees from new and existing customers. College Sports revenue increased 21% to $3.4 million compared to $2.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013. The increase was primarily driven by revenue generated from NeuLion's recent advertising agreement with USA Today as well as from new agreements with additional colleges and conferences. TV Everywhere revenue increased 39% to $3.9 million from $2.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013 primarily due to usage fees generated from the Univision Deportes agreement for coverage and exclusive content of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Cost of revenue was $3.5 million, or 26% of total revenue, compared to $3.2 million, or 29% of total revenue, for the same period last year. Selling, general and administrative expenses, including stock-based compensation, were $6.4 million, an increase of 7% from $6.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013. Research and development expenses were $2.2 million, a 16% increase compared to $1.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013. Operating income was $0.6 million compared to an operating loss of $1.0 in the second quarter of 2013. Consolidated net income was $0.6 million, or $0.00 per diluted share, compared with a consolidated net loss of $(1.3) million, or a loss of $(0.01) per diluted share, for the three months ended June 30, 2013.

Non-GAAP Results

Adjusted Gross Margin Percentage was 74% compared with 71% for the three months ended June 30, 2013, reflecting improved broadcast operating costs. Adjusted EBITDA rose to $1.6 million from $0.2 million for the same period last year due to higher revenue and improved Adjusted Gross Margin Percentage. Please refer to the tables accompanying this release for the calculations of Adjusted Gross Margin Percentage and Adjusted EBITDA.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

In addition to our U.S. GAAP results, this press release also includes certain non-GAAP financial measures as defined by the SEC. The Company defines Adjusted Gross Margin Percentage as consolidated operating income (loss) plus depreciation and amortization, research and development expenses and selling general administrative expenses divided by total revenue. It defines Adjusted EBITDA as consolidated net income (loss) before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, investment income, stock-based compensation, discount on convertible note and foreign exchange loss. Adjusted Gross Margin Percentage and Adjusted EBITDA are key measures used by management to evaluate our results and make strategic decisions about the Company, including potential acquisitions. Management believes these measures are useful to investors because they are indicators of operational performance. Because not all companies use identical calculations, the Company's presentation of Adjusted Gross Margin Percentage and Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. These measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by U.S. GAAP and therefore are unlikely to be comparable to the calculation of similar measures used by other companies, and should not be viewed as alternatives to measures of financial performance or changes in cash flows calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, we have provided reconciliations of Adjusted EBITDA to U.S. GAAP consolidated net income/(loss) and of Adjusted Gross Margin Percentage to U.S. GAAP consolidated operating income/(loss) as exhibits to this press release.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
