Total revenue for fiscal 2014 decreased three percent to$3.57 millionfrom$3.68 millionduring the prior year. The decrease in revenue was primarily related to the impact of a contract with our largest customer during the first half of fiscal 2014 partially offset by increased usage by U.S. independent labels and in Australia.
Net loss for fiscal 2014 was($324,399), or($0.01)per share, versus net income of$226,014, or$0.00per share in the prior year. The reduction was primarily related to costs related to the purchase of stock options.
"Fiscal 2014 was a transitional year for our company," saidSteve Vestergaard, Chief Executive Officer for Destiny Media Technologies. "We shifted our focus from research and development to more of a sales and marketing approach, and hired staff and key personnel as we prepare for growth."
"We are optimistic about our prospects for fiscal 2015. Our Play MPE business continues to gain acceptance by additional independent labels and we expect growth with our major clients.."
"We began to build our Clipstream sales and marketing team and are incorporating the feedback received from existing customers and recent exhibitions at major industry conferences. We believe we should see sales from these efforts beginning in the second quarter of fiscal 2015. We are also building our advertising vertical and expect to receive validation of these products later this year.""
