Destiny Media Technologies, Inc. Announces Second Quarter Fiscal 2014 Results
Destiny Media Technologies (TSXV: DSY) (OTCQX: DSNY), the makers of Play MPE®, a system for the secure distribution of pre-release music to radio and the developer of Clipstream®, a new cross-platform player-less video streaming format, today announced its financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2014.
Highlights during and subsequent to the end of the second quarter include :
- Launched the Clipstream video cloud service for commercial use
- Became the exclusive supplier of digital distribution services for Sony Music Australia
- Received approval for our first watermarking technology patent in Europe
- Signed an agreement with Shazam to license digital fingerprints and metadata to its servers
"This quarter marked a significant milestone for our company with the launch of the Clipstream® video cloud service," said Steve Vestergaard, President and Chief Executive Officer at Destiny Media Technologies. "We believe this product has the capability to disrupt the $5 billion dollar video encoding market. We continue to build our sales and support staff and as the service gains traction, we have the opportunity to rapidly grow our revenues and profitability. We are making our Play MPE service more user friendly with the introduction of applications for multiple devices and pursuing opportunities beyond music delivery."
Second Quarter Results
Service revenue for the second quarter was $810,682, versus $880,322 during the prior year quarter. As previously discussed, the year-over-year decrease in revenue was primarily related to a multi-year renewal of agreements with the Company's largest customer. While the renewal affected year over year revenue comparisons during the quarter, it is expected to facilitate an increase in usage and global expansion.
Net loss for the second quarter was ($374,833), or ($0.01) per share, versus net income of $13,198, or $0.00 per diluted share, in the prior year quarter. This quarter's results include an expense of $344,352 related to stock based compensation and payouts made for the repurchase of stock options by the Company. Excluding this expense, net loss for the second quarter was ($30,481), or ($0.00) per share, compared to net income of $13,198, or $0.00 per diluted share in the prior year quarter.
