Destiny Media Technologies Announces Year End Results
Vancouver, BC - Destiny Media Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: DSNY) is pleased to announce year end results to August 31, 2001.
Sales increased 687% from $85,544 in 2000 to $587,899 in 2001 (consisting of $345,653 in recognized sales, $156,657 short term deferred revenue and $85,589 long term deferred revenue).
Destiny CEO, David Lawrence, explains the corporate strategy, "2001 was about building the foundation and infrastructure for our sales and marketing efforts going into our next fiscal year. Our strategy has been to sell into OEM products and build a strong network of distributors and resellers. We are close to operational sustainability and we anticipate being profitable in fiscal 2002. In the last six months, we've seen many corporations adopt our playerless audio and video streaming formats. We see a tremendous market opportunity as more companies come to realize the benefits of java streaming solutions and the fast ROI when they choose Destiny as their provider."
Mark Toffoli, Destiny VP Sales, speaks to the OEM strategy "Our mission is to become the industry standard in the playerless streaming category. By building Clipstream™ into other products, we can ensure content is being encoded in our format." For example, our OEM partner Silverpop Systems (http://www.silverpop.com) has built VideoClipstream™ into their suite of rich email delivery products as their exclusive streaming delivery platform.
Fiscal 2001 and first quarter 2002 marked distribution relationships with Digistream in the UK (http://www.digistreamuk.com/) which has already signed a major deal with 'Servecast', a leading pan-European content delivery network dedicated to hosting and delivery of streaming media, and IMM (http://www.imm.ne.jp/) in Japan and the launch of the "Solution Partner" program to recruit top partners.
