YOU On Demand Reports 2013 Q3 Results

- Management Hosting Investor Call Today at 4:30pm ET -

14 Nov, 2013, 16:00 ET from YOU On Demand Holdings, Inc.

NEW YORK, Nov. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- YOU On Demand Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: YOD) ("YOU On Demand" or the "Company"), a leading multi-platform entertainment and Video On Demand (VOD) company in China, announced today its unaudited operating results for the three-month period ended September 30, 2013 (a full copy of its quarterly report on Form 10-Q will also be posted at www.sec.gov).

Conference Call: Chairman Shane McMahon and Chief Financial Officer Marc Urbach are hosting a conference call today beginning at 4:30 p.m. ET (1:30 p.m. PT). The dial-in numbers are (800) 621-4410 or (+1) (303) 223-2680 (international callers).

On November 5 (subsequent to the close of the 2013 third quarter), the Company announced that C Media Limited, a leading China-based mobile video service provider, raised its aggregate strategic investment in YOU On Demand to $6.0 million USD, with an additional $2.0 million USD Convertible Bridge Note financing. In addition, C Media and YOU On Demand jointly agreed to extend C Media's Phase 2 investment deadline – for up to $10.0 million USD of additional capital – to December 4, 2013. As previously disclosed in early July, C Media had made an initial $4.0 million USD investment in YOU On Demand.

In addition and also subsequent to quarter-end, the Company forged a mobile distribution agreement with Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider and the third largest global smartphone manufacturer. Per the agreement, Huawei is offering its mobile customers feature films through YOU On Demand's newly launched mobile application (App), YOU Cinema. The YOU Cinema App is now coming pre-loaded on Huawei Mate smartphones featuring various Hollywood titles.  

Shane McMahon, Chairman of YOU On Demand, commented, "C Media's strategic investment, in multiple tranches, as well as our new mobile content distribution agreement with Huawei via the YOU Cinema App, are milestones for our organization.  Partnering with these two respected China-based organizations provides us with the requisite resources to continue YOU On Demand's rapid expansion, awareness and brand recognition across multiple distribution platforms, especially in the mobile space. We also plan to deploy a portion of C Media's investment in further diversifying our array of entertainment content and continue building YOU On Demand's multi-platform brand."

YOD Q3 2013 Operating Results Marc Urbach, YOU On Demand's President & CFO, commented, "We are delighted with the very strong relationship YOD has been developing with the C Media team over the past several months and we look forward to achieving additional milestones as defined in our business plan in the coming months, specifically with the financial and technological backing of C Media.  We have been strengthening our balance sheet in recent quarters, reflecting their growing capital investment, plus the additional $4.7 million cash infusion we recently received following our divestiture of the non-core Jinan Broadband assets."

Revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 amounted to $0.1 million, while total operating expenses declined approximately 35% to $2.0 million. This lower cost base helped lead to a more than 30% reduction in the Company's operating loss, to $2.6 million in Q3. A one-time $5.6 million gain on the sale of YOD's non-core Jinan Broadband assets resulted in net income of $3.0 million, or diluted EPS of $0.14 per share – based on 15.6 million weighted average shares outstanding at quarter-end.

The cash and cash equivalents balance at September 30, 2013 was $1.2 million, but this does not reflect the additional $2.0 million infusion from C Media on November 5, 2013, nor the remaining cash balance payment received from the sale of the legacy Jinan Broadband assets on November 1, 2013.
