Mandalay Digital Reports First Fiscal Quarter 2014 Financial Results
Revenues for Quarter Increase 295%

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Mandalay Digital Group, Inc. and its subsidiaries (NASDAQ: MNDL) (collectively, "Mandalay Digital" or "the Company"), today announced financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2013. 

First Fiscal Quarter 2014 Highlights:

  • Revenues were $5.1 million, up 295% from $1.3 million in fiscal Q1 2013, reflecting the results of recent acquisitions and improved core performance.
  • Completed acquisition of Mirror Image International Holdings, Ltd. ("MIA" Australia) – adding complementary content management and billing integration capabilities across the Asia Pacific region.
  • The Company began trading on NASDAQ Capital Market on June 12, 2013.
  • Signed contracts for Digital Turbine ("DT") products now provide Mandalay with a total addressable market of 1B subscribers globally. 
  • DT Pay™ launched in Italy to a potential market of over 90M subscribers providing operator billing capabilities across Vodafone, Telecom Italia, and Wind.
  • DT Pay™ revenue growth in Australia increased from nil to $7.0M annualized run rate year-over-year.
  • New DT Ignite™ contracts announced with Avea (Turkey) and Cricket (USA).  
  • New DT IQ™ contract announced with Telstra (Australia) to complement launches in Israel and Indonesia.

"The substantial revenue growth in the first quarter reflects contributions from our acquisitions of MIA and Logia and performance of our Digital Turbine portfolio of services to carriers and mobile content providers," began Peter Adderton, CEO of Mandalay Digital.  "The landscape of the mobile marketplace has become significantly more complex and our software helps carriers better service their subscribers worldwide; the key to this connection is content management and integrated carrier billing. Our expanded Digital Turbine software platform includes DT Ignite™, DT Marketplace™, DT IQ™ and DT Pay™, which collectively offer carriers a complete solution to access important user analytics, enhance the subscribers' experience, reduce churn and improve monetization from advertising and content consumption."

Company Overview

Mandalay Digital is a comprehensive mobile content and service provider.  Its technology platform, powered by Digital Turbine, allows media companies, mobile carriers, and their OEM handset partners to take advantage of multiple mobile operating systems across multiple networks, while maintaining individual branding and personalized one-to-one relationships and billing optionality with each end-user. The Company acquired Logia Group Ltd. ("Logia") in September 2012 to add mobile content development and management solutions capabilities. Additionally, it completed the acquisition of Mirror Image International Holdings Ltd. ("MIA") in April 2013, a leading mobile solutions provider with extensive content licenses with major content partners in Australia. MIA also brought proprietary content management and billing integration capabilities to the Company's suite of products and services to mobile carriers.

Mandalay Digital employs 120 people from its headquarters in Los Angeles, and international offices in Australia, Germany and Israel.

First Fiscal Quarter 2014 Results

Mandalay Digital's revenues are derived primarily from the provisioning of software for mobile carriers and subscribers in the form of: 1) analytic services through Digital Turbine Ignite™, 2) content and interfacing through Digital Turbine Content™, Marketplace™, and IQ™, and 3) integrated billing through Digital Turbine Pay™.

Revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2013 increased 295% to $5.1 million compared to $1.3 million in the same period a year ago. Higher sales from DT's services and, principally, revenue contributions from Logia and MIA were the drivers of revenue growth.

Gross profit increased 195% to $1.8 million compared to $0.6 million in the corresponding period a year ago, principally due to the contributions of Logia and MIA. Gross margin for the first quarter of 2014 was 35.8%.

Total operating expenses were $6.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013, compared to $2.9 million in the year ago period. Investments in product development and the additions of general and administrative expenses and costs associated with completion of the aforementioned acquisitions, as well as $1.2 million in non-cash, stock-based compensation, contributed to the year-over-year increase in operating expenses.

The Company had a net loss of $5.7 million and a net loss per share of $0.30 for the three months ended June 30, 2013. The weighted average diluted shares outstanding were 18.9 million, reflecting a 1-for-5 reverse stock split on April 12, 2013.

Mr. Adderton concluded, "During the first quarter, we invested in the roll out of our products and services into the many new carriers we signed. These investments and additions to our team now provide us the operating infrastructure to meaningfully grow our customer base and generate recurring revenues during the remainder of this fiscal year."

Business Updates

  • On July 17th, 2013, Digital Turbine ("DT") Ignite, the Company's mobile application management solution, successfully completed testing of its proprietary software platform on Cricket's system. Cricket will have the ability to manage and control its pre and post-mobile app installations using the DT Ignite™ platform.
  • Telstra, Australia's largest mobile operator, signed an agreement to launch DT's IQ™ management interface on its Android smartphones beginning in the second half of 2013.
  • Mandalay Digital signed a technology agreement with Lancio Entertainment – a leading Italian mobile content aggregator – to launch a mobile content billing aggregation solution for Italian mobile network operators ("MNO"). The Company will leverage the successes it had integrating its Digital Turbine Pay™ technology with Australian mobile operators to create a differentiated offering for more than 90 million subscribers serviced by the Italian MNOs.

Outlook

The Company anticipates providing financial guidance by September 30, 2013. Management will host a conference call at that time and plans to accompany all earnings releases going forward with an earnings conference call.
