Destiny Media Technologies, Inc. Announces First Quarter Fiscal Year 2015 Results
Vancouver, BC – January 14, 2015 – 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 cross-platform player-less video streaming format, today announced its financial results for its first quarter fiscal 2015.
First Quarter Results
First quarter revenue increased four percent over the prior year quarter to $955,070. During the first quarter, revenue from the Play MPE segment increased 7% percent over the prior year, driven by a 14% increase in revenue in the United States and a 145% increase in revenue in Australia. Contributing to the growth in Play MPE revenue in the United States is an 8% growth in the independent label segment, which has grown in 25 of the last 26 quarters.
Net loss for the first quarter was ($56,309), or ($0.00) per share, versus net income of $44,393, or $0.00 during the prior year. The reduction in income was due primarily to increased staffing for the technical development of Clipstream, increased director compensation and a decline in the value of the Euro, resulting in a reduction in European revenue.
“We continue to make progress and are very optimistic about our prospects for fiscal 2015,” said Steve Vestergaard, Chief Executive Officer of Destiny Media Technologies. “Our Play MPE business continues to grow. In addition, our Clipstream operation is finalizing its cloud offering for launch in March 2015 and in parallel is developing go-to-market plans that should result in meaningful revenue traction this year.”
