Augme Technologies, Inc. Reports Third Quarter Fiscal 2013 Results

Revenue Increases 19% to Record $7.4 Million Over Second Quarter; Revenue Increases 68% Over Third Quarter Fiscal 2012

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 01/09/13 -- Augme® Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: AUGT) ("Augme") ("the Company"), a technology and services leader in interactive media and mobile marketing and mobile advertising, today announced its operating results for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 ended November 30, 2012.

Third Quarter Highlights:

  • Revenue totaled $7.4 million compared to $6.2 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2013, a 19% increase, and compared to $4.4 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2012, a 68% increase.

  • Mobile advertising revenue increased by 53% to $2.9 million, compared to $1.9 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 and 3-fold compared to $0.9 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2012. Mobile marketing revenue totaled $4.5 million, compared to $4.3 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 and $3.5 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2012.

  • New order bookings (the dollar value of contracts signed during the third quarter) totaled $5.5 million. Approximately 83% of new orders were received from existing customers and 17% from new customers.

  • Backlog (the dollar value of signed contracts including deferred revenue and unbilled revenue) totaled $16.3 million as of November 30, 2012, compared to $18.9 million at August 31, 2012.

  • Implemented a restructuring plan that is expected to reduce ongoing operating expense and improve cash flow by approximately $6.0 million on an annual basis. The majority of the cost savings from the restructuring plan will be reflected in general and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 with the remainder reflected in general and administrative expenses for the first quarter of fiscal 2014.

  • Customers completed over 24,000 campaigns in the third quarter, compared to 29,000 campaigns in the second quarter and 16,000 campaigns in the third quarter of fiscal 2012.

  • Crossed the 250,000 completed campaign mark, extending Hipcricket's industry-leading track record in the mobile marketing and advertising industry.

"Last quarter we outlined our objectives to drive revenue, reduce costs and harvest our IP investments, and we executed well against those objectives in the third quarter," said Robert F. Hussey, Chief Executive Officer. "First, we delivered sequential revenue growth of 19%, within our stated guidance range of 15-20% quarter-over-quarter growth on average, with mobile advertising rising by 53%. Bookings for the quarter reflect this significant increase in mobile advertising revenue, which consists of contracts that are shorter in duration than mobile marketing revenue. As the number of mobile campaigns launched on our proprietary AD LIFE® platform increases, our proprietary AD LIFE® platform and Hipcricket's brand leadership continues to draw new customers while existing customers continue to expand their allocation of spending budgets to mobile marketing and advertising campaigns."

"Second, we completed a cost reduction plan that is expected to reduce ongoing operating expenses and improve cash flow by approximately $6.0 million on an annual basis. We also lowered capitalized IP costs from approximately $1.5 million per quarter to approximately $600,000 for the third quarter," continued Hussey. "It's important to note that net of the third quarter's non-cash impairment charges of $5.8 million, total operating expenses were flat with the second quarter due to expected non-recurring restructuring charges. Compared with the year ago third quarter, operating expenses declined by $2.6 million, or 19%. This improvement was achieved while revenues grew by 19% compared with the second quarter and by 68% compared with the third quarter of last year."

Hussey concluded, "The combination of our outlook for continued revenue growth and the actions taken to reduce costs gives us confidence that we will achieve our goal of reaching operating cash flow breakeven in the second quarter of fiscal 2014, ending August 31, 2013, on quarterly revenue of $10.0 million, for a $40.0 million annualized run rate. To reach $10.0 million in quarterly revenue we still expect to generate sequential revenue growth on average between 15% and 20%."

Third Quarter Financial Results

For the third quarter of fiscal 2013 ended November 30, 2012, the Company reported revenue of approximately $7.4 million, an increase of approximately 19% versus revenue of $6.2 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013 ended August 31, 2012 and an increase of 68% compared with revenue of approximately $4.4 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 ended November 30, 2011.

Mobile Marketing accounted for 60% of revenue and Mobile Advertising Solutions accounted for 40% of revenue during the third quarter of fiscal 2013. Mobile Marketing revenue includes sales of messaging, mobile web and services; of these revenues approximately 66% were SaaS-based licenses.

Gross profit (revenue minus cost of revenue) increased 19% to $4.4 million, or 59% of revenue, for the third quarter of fiscal 2013, compared with gross profit of $3.7 million, or 60% of revenue, for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 and increased 45% versus gross profit of $3.0 million, or 68% of revenue, for the third quarter of fiscal 2012. The decrease in the gross profit margin compared to both prior periods reflects an ongoing mix shift in the Company's business toward mobile advertising revenue, which carries a higher cost of sales than mobile marketing revenue. The percentage of business derived from mobile ad network sales accounted for 40% of third quarter revenue compared with 31% of second quarter fiscal 2013 revenue and 20% in the third quarter of fiscal 2012.

Operating expenses, net of impairment loss, decreased to $10.8 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 compared with $10.9 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 and decreased 19% versus $13.4 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2012. The decrease in expenses for both periods is primarily due to lower general and administrative expenses, which declined by 2% and 48% from the second quarter of fiscal 2013 and the third quarter of fiscal 2012, respectively. During the third quarter of fiscal 2013, the Company recorded a restructuring charge of $1.1 million.

The Company recorded a non-cash impairment loss of $(5.8) million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013 related to certain non-core IP assets that we have designated as held for sale and a decline in the fair value of a long-term asset.

The Company reported net loss of $(5.0) million, or $(0.05) per share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 after recording a favorable non-cash adjustment to the Hipcricket acquisition related contingent consideration of $7.3 million and an impairment loss of $(5.8) million. Excluding the acquisition related contingent consideration and impairment loss, net loss for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 was $(6.4) million, or $(0.05) per share. This compares to a net loss of $(2.3) million, or $(0.02) per share, in the second quarter of fiscal 2013 and a net loss of $(11.4) million, or $(0.13) per share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2012.

Operating results and non-cash charges are as follows:

(1)  Earnings before non-cash charges. Generally, a non-GAAP financial
     measure is a numerical measure of a company's performance, financial
     position or cash flow that either excludes or includes amounts that are
     not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable
     measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Earnings
     before non-cash charges is defined as net loss before depreciation
     expense on our fixed assets, amortization expense (including
     impairment) on our intangible assets, stock-based compensation and
     share based payments expense, and the change in acquisition contingent
     consideration. Earnings before non-cash charges should not be construed
     as a substitute for net loss or net cash provided by (used in)
     operating activities (all as determined in accordance with GAAP) for
     the purpose of analyzing our operating performance, financial position
     and cash flows, as this measure is not defined by GAAP. However, the
     Company regards Earnings before non-cash charges as a complement to net
     loss and other GAAP financial performance measures, including an
     indirect measure of operating cash flow.
