SITO Mobile Reports Second Quarter 2018 Results

 

 

JERSEY CITY, N.J., August 20, 2018 -- SITO Mobile Ltd. (NASDAQ: SITO), an insights-driven Consumer Behavior and Location Sciences™ company, announced today its financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018.  

 

Second Quarter Financial and Recent Business Highlights

 

·Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2018 of $8.4 million were in line with management’s previously announced expectations for quarterly revenues in the range of $8 million to $9 million

 

·Gross profit for the second quarter of 2018 was $4.0 million, or 48% of total revenue, compared to $5.1 million, or 48% of total revenue, for the corresponding period of 2017

 

·Net loss in the second quarter of 2018 was $5.7 million, compared to a net loss of $2.2 million for the corresponding period of 2017

 

·Adjusted EBITDA* loss for the second quarter of 2018 was $3.6 million

 

·Subsequent to quarter end, the Company appointed experienced advertising and marketing industry executives Bonin Bough, Jonathan Bond, Steven Felsher and Brett O’Brien to the Board of Directors

 

·Attracted 53 attendees to the Inaugural SITO Institute of Consumer Behavior and Location Sciences Forum including marketing leaders from TDAmeritrade , Aetna, Yext and Take-Two Interactive; Ad Agency leaders like Paul Woolmington, CEO of Canvas Worldwide, as well as other industry thought leaders such as Peter Horst, CEO of CMO Inc. (formerly of CMO CapitalOne and Hershey’s)

 

·Subsequent to the end of the second quarter, the Company announced a partnership with Ribbow Media Group to deliver media to promote movies beginning in the second half of 2018

 

Tom Pallack, SITO’s Chief Executive Officer commented, “We continue to advance initiatives to transform our organization from what has historically been a media placement business with one-time campaign driven revenues to a differentiated consumer behavior research organization with syndicated and contracted data revenues that are recurring. Our second quarter results highlight the challenges of our traditional campaign-driven media placement revenue model and underscore the benefits of the strategy we are actively pursuing. Media placement campaign volume grew on a sequential basis, despite the absence of one customer who accounted for approximately 46% of our first quarter revenues, which was not actively running campaigns with SITO during the second quarter. We anticipate increased levels of activity from this customer in the second half of this year.”

 

 

 

  

“We remain confident in our ability to augment our revenue model with transformative, multi-year, consumer insights and data-driven transactions with large enterprise brands,” Pallack added. “As part of our strategic transition, we reconstituted our board of directors and added accomplished marketing and advertising executives who have the expertise and relationships with brand and agency prospects to support our pursuit of new business and the experience to guide our organization through the business transition we have put in motion.”

 

Second Quarter Financial Summary

 

Total revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2018 decreased 22%, or $2.3 million, to $8.4 million compared to $10.8 million in the corresponding period of 2017. This decrease in total revenue was primarily due to a decrease in the average spend per customer in addition to a decrease in lower margin TV revenue spend.

 

Gross profit for the three months ended June 30, 2018 was $4.0 million, or 48% of total revenue, compared to $5.1 million, or 48% of total revenue, for the corresponding period of 2017, and $4.4 million, or 40% of total revenue, for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The increase in gross profit as a percentage of total revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2018 compared with the three months ended March 31, 2018 was primarily the result of concentration in lower margin revenue associated with a large customer during the three months ended March 31, 2018.

 

Loss from operations for the three months ended June 30, 2018 was $6.1 million compared to a loss from operations of $2.8 million in the corresponding period of 2017. The increase in loss from operations was primarily due to a $1.8 million increase in sales and marketing expenses related to the implementation of the Company’s 2017 stock incentive plan, expansion of the Company’s direct sales force and customer management personnel, and increased marketing efforts.

 

Net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2018 was $5.7 million, or ($0.23) per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $2.2 million, or ($0.10) per basic and diluted share, in the corresponding period of 2017.

 

Adjusted EBITDA* for the three months ended June 30, 2018 was a loss of $3.6 million compared to Adjusted EBITDA* income of $1.0 million in the corresponding period of 2017.

 

* SITO Mobile has presented Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, because many of our investors use these non-GAAP measures to monitor the Company’s performance. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a quantitative assessment of a Company’s performance, financial position or cash flow that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. It should not be considered an alternative to GAAP measures as an indicator of the Company’s operating performance.

 

Cash used in operations for the three months ended June 30, 2018 was $6.1 million compared to $1.4 million for the corresponding period in 2017. This is inclusive of year-end bonuses for fiscal 2017, which is an annual event during the first half of each year, and various professional fees for legal, audit, and other services.

 

Balance Sheet Summary

 

As of June 30, 2018, the Company had $6.6 million in cash and cash equivalents compared to $3.6 million at December 31, 2017.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

 

We present EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA and in this press release to provide a supplemental measure of our operating performance. We define EBITDA as earnings before interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization expense, and Adjusted EBITDA, as EBITDA before stock based compensation, certain non-recurring professional expenses related to pending or threatened contested solicitations of the Company’s shareholders, investigations of former executives, defense of certain class action lawsuits, and implementation of a section 382 rights plan. We believe EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are useful performance measures used by us to facilitate a comparison of our operating performance and earnings on a consistent basis from period-to-period and to provide for a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business than measures under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (GAAP) can provide alone. The non-GAAP measures included in this release, however, should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for or superior to, operating income, cash flows, or other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Please refer to the financial tables included below for a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP measures.
