MGT Reports 2015 First Quarter Financial Results

May 18, 2015, 09:00 ET from MGT Capital Investments, Inc.

HARRISON, N.Y., May 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- MGT Capital Investments, Inc. (NYSE MKT: MGT) today reported financial and operational results for the three months ended March 31, 2015.

For the first quarter ended March 31, 2015, total revenue was $217,000, as compared to $85,000 for the same period last year. Gross margin totalled $127,000 (59% of revenue), up 253% from the first quarter of 2014. Compared to fourth quarter 2014, gross margin was flat, despite the impact of seasonally lower revenues in the current quarter.  Operating expenses were also flat compared to previous quarter.

Cash and cash equivalents as of March 31, 2015 were $1.4 million. During the quarter, net cash used in operating activities was $1.0 million, as compared to $1.4 million in the first quarter of 2014. The company expects cash utilization to continue to trend lower for 2015, due to the positive contribution from gross margin of MGT Sports and recent cost reductions. As stated in the Company's March 31, 2015 Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Company anticipates it has sufficient cash on hand, combined with the gross margin from DraftDay, to continue operations at least through April 30, 2016.

Management commentary and outlook

As reported previously, MGT has communicated with several parties expressing interest in a potential investment or purchase of DraftDay. The Company continues to review multiple indications of interest in an effort to create maximum value from DraftDay's position as the third largest daily fantasy sports website (measured by customer accounts, player funds, number of contests, and other metrics). With the top two competitors valued at $1.0 billion each, the Company intends to monetize its investment and also retain a significant stake in the future of this explosive market.
