POMPANO BEACH, Fla., Aug. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Onstream Media Corporation (NASDAQ: ONSM), a leading online service provider of live and on-demand corporate audio and web communications, virtual event technology and social media marketing, reported today its financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2012, the nine and three months ended June 30, 2012.

Third Quarter Highlights

  • Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2012 were over $4.8 million, representing a record for Onstream Media. Third quarter revenues, which were approximately 4% higher than the third quarter of fiscal 2011, also represented the eighth consecutive quarter where revenues increased from the corresponding quarter of the previous fiscal year.
  • Revenues from the Audio and Web Conferencing Services Group improved by 8.8% to $2.7 million during the fiscal 2012 third quarter, versus the comparable year-ago period.
  • Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2012, were sufficient to fund operating cash expenditures plus all capital expenditures and major debt service expenditures (as defined) for that period.
  • Onstream's EBITDA, as adjusted, for the three months ended June 30, 2012 was approximately $245,000, an approximately 227% improvement as compared to EBITDA, as adjusted, of approximately $75,000 for the third quarter of fiscal 2011.

Management Commentary

Randy Selman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Onstream Media, stated, "We are pleased to report a new revenue record for the most recently completed fiscal quarter, continuing such records achieved over our past seven quarters. We were also pleased to continue to report positive cash flow from operating activities (before changes in current assets and liabilities other than cash) for the first nine months of this fiscal year, continuing and exceeding the pace set in fiscal 2011 when we reported our first full fiscal year having positive cash provided by operating activities (before changes in current assets and liabilities other than cash). In addition, we were especially glad to report not only positive operating cash flow, but for the first time in the Company's history, positive operating cash flow sufficient to cover all capital expenditures and major debt service expenditures (as defined) for that period."

Mr. Selman added, "Looking forward to the remainder of fiscal 2012, we believe that our core businesses, including conferencing and webcasting, are well positioned to continue to drive our revenue growth, allowing for the seasonality we usually see in the fourth fiscal quarter. Although webcasting revenues are running behind the prior year, we believe that the future of this division will be favorably impacted by the comprehensive update to our webcasting platform which we expect to release during the first quarter of fiscal 2013. In addition, we recently implemented a new MarketPlace365 (MP365) pricing model that establishes MarketPlace365 as a value-added platform to assist the customer in using our webcasting services and more particularly, our webinar services. In addition, our new model enables various components of the platform to be used separately opening up new opportunities for MarketPlace365."  

Financial Discussion

Three Months Results

Our consolidated revenues of over $4.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 represented a new record high for Onstream Media. Those revenues represented an increase of approximately $182,000, or 3.9%, over our revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2011, with such increase due to higher sales from the Company's Audio and Web Conferencing Services Group. Those consolidated revenues of approximately $4.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 also represented an increase of $151,000, or 3.3%, over our revenues for the immediately preceding quarter, the three months ended March 31, 2012.

Audio and Web Conferencing Services Group revenues were approximately $2.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012, an increase of approximately $216,000, or 8.8%, from the corresponding quarter of the prior fiscal year, primarily due to an increase in the Infinite division's audio conferencing revenues.

Digital Media Services Group revenues were approximately $2.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012, a decrease of approximately $33,000, or 1.5%, from the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year, primarily due to a decrease in webcasting division revenues, partially offset by an increase in DMSP and hosting revenues.

Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2012, were sufficient to fund operating cash expenditures plus all capital expenditures and major debt service expenditures for that period.  Major debt service expenditures is defined as the monthly principal and interest payments on a major scheduled note owed by Onstream plus interest payable in cash on all other debts.

Gross margin of approximately $3.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012, representing 66.6% of total revenues, was an increase of 0.4% as compared to the year-ago quarter.

Onstream's third quarter fiscal 2012 net loss of approximately $244,000, or $(0.02) per share, was based on approximately 12.3 million weighted average shares outstanding and represented a 49.8% decrease from the third quarter fiscal 2011 net loss of approximately $486,000, or $(0.05) per share, which was based on approximately 10.3 million weighted average shares outstanding. These losses included non-cash expenses for depreciation and amortization (approximately $340,000 and $364,000, for the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively) as well as other non-cash expenses, which are discussed in more detail below.

Onstream's EBITDA, as adjusted, for the three months ended June 30, 2012 was approximately $245,000, an approximately 227% improvement as compared to EBITDA, as adjusted, of approximately $75,000 for the third quarter of fiscal 2011.

Cash flow from operating activities (before changes in current assets and liabilities other than cash) for the three months ended June 30, 2012 was approximately $372,000, compared to cash provided by operating activities of approximately $328,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2011. 

Nine Months Results

Onstream's consolidated revenues were approximately $14.0 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2012 representing an increase of approximately $626,000, or 4.7%, over our revenues for the nine months ended June 30, 2012. This increase was due to higher sales from the Company's Audio and Web Conferencing Services Group, and in particular the Infinite division.

Gross margin of approximately $9.2 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2012, representing 66.0% of total revenues, was an increase of 2.9% versus the comparable year-ago period.

Onstream's net loss of approximately $1.6 million, or $(0.13) per share, for the first nine months of fiscal 2012 was based on approximately 12.1 million weighted average shares outstanding and represented a 39.5% decrease from the net loss for the first nine months of fiscal 2011 of approximately $2.7 million, or $(0.28) per share, which was based on approximately 9.5 million weighted average shares outstanding. These losses included non-cash expenses for depreciation and amortization (approximately $1.1 million, for each of the nine months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011) as well as other non-cash expenses, which are discussed in more detail below.

Onstream's EBITDA, as adjusted, for the nine months ended June 30, 2012 was negative by approximately $44,000, an approximately 93% improvement as compared to EBITDA, as adjusted, for the comparable year-ago period, which was negative by approximately $611,000.

Onstream's net loss of approximately $1.6 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2012 included approximately $2.2 million of non-cash items (non-cash expenses, net of non-cash income), resulting in approximately $552,000 positive cash flow from operating activities (before changes in current assets and liabilities other than cash) for that period. The primary non-cash expenses included in that net loss were depreciation and amortization and certain items (employee compensation, professional fees and interest) paid with equity.  The $552,000 positive cash flow from operating activities (before changes in current assets and liabilities other than cash) for the nine months ended June 30, 2012 represented an improvement of approximately $268,000, as compared to cash provided by operating activities of approximately $284,000 in the corresponding period of the previous fiscal year. Cash flow from operating activities (before changes in current assets and liabilities other than cash) was positive for all three quarters of fiscal 2012.

EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, depreciation, income taxes and amortization.

 

EBITDA, as adjusted, represents EBITDA, as defined above, adjusted 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.
