Destiny Media Technologies, Inc. Announces Fiscal 2013 Third Quarter Results
Vancouver, BC – July 15, 2013 – Destiny Media Technologies (TSXV: DSY) (OTCQX: DSNY), the global standard for the secure distribution of pre-release music to radio and the developer of a new cross-platform player-less video streaming format, today announced its financial results for the third quarter and nine-month period ended May 31, 2013. Net income for the third quarter was $26,595, or $0.00 per diluted share, versus net income of $651,138, or $0.01 per diluted share, in the prior year quarter. The prior year’s results were aided by a $694,000 net recovery of litigation costs that did not recur this year. Net income for the nine-month period was $199,843 versus $377,446 in the previous nine-month period.
Revenue for the third quarter was $873,866 versus $1,022,921 in the prior year quarter. For the nine-month period, revenue decreased 7.4 percent to $2,818,055. The decrease in revenue from Play MPE®, which represents approximately 96 percent of third quarter and year-to-date revenue, was primarily related to a change in contractual terms with a significant customer and consolidation within the record label industry.
“As expected, our third quarter revenue was affected due to a change in contractual terms with a major Play MPE customer. However, usage among this customer, as well as other major and independent record labels increased during the quarter, particularly in the United States and Scandinavia,” said Steve Vestergaard, Chief Executive Officer of Destiny Media Technologies. “With greater incentive to increase long-term usage, our significant customer is beginning to expand into new territories. As we establish beachheads in these new markets, we expect this to drive greater usage among the other majors and independent labels, as well as more favorable revenue comparisons.”
“We continue to make progress towards the launch of our Clipstream® video cloud system. This product should be available during the first quarter of fiscal 2014.”
