Zedge Announces Third Quarter Fiscal 2017 Results

 

New York, NY & Trondheim, Norway – June 13, 2017:

Zedge, Inc. (NYSE MKT: ZDGE) today announced results for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2017, the three months ended April 30, 2017.

 

Third Quarter FY 2017 Operational and Financial Highlights

(Results are for the 3rd quarter FY 2017 and are compared to the 3rd quarter FY 2016 except where otherwise noted.)

 

MAU (Monthly Active Users) for the last 30 days of the quarter increased 0.3% to 31.7 million, and decreased 5.1% compared to Q2 FY2017;

 

Total installs were 260.4 million at April 30, 2017, an increase of 28.5% compared to April 30, 2016;

 

Revenue decreased 1.7% to 2.5 million;

 

Average revenue per MAU derived from our apps (ARPMAU) increased year-over-year for the second consecutive quarter, rising 0.8% to $0.0249 and increasing 5.1% sequentially;

 

Loss from operations was $193 thousand compared to income from operations of $243 thousand;

 

Net loss per diluted share of $0.02 compared to diluted EPS of $0.04;

 

Working capital – current assets less current liabilities - increased to $5.3 million at April 30, 2017 from $3.9 million at April 30, 2016.

 

Management Remarks

“Zedge is focused on expanding MAU and revenue, especially across well developed markets where we can command more attractive advertising rates. In particular, we are committed to ensuring that our users find fresh, high quality content that matches their needs and expectations,” said Tom Arnoy, Zedge’s Co-founder and CEO.

 

“We have streamlined operations in order to shorten the time it takes to complete projects that will impact user growth while deprioritizing projects that do not immediately align with this goal. Specifically, we have been reworking ‘Search’ which currently generates close to 100 million queries monthly and expect that the makeover will provide a more powerful content discovery tool. In addition, we are changing the way we display content in order to drive inspiration and promote engagement.

 

“We are excited to announce that earlier today we launched a public beta of an entirely new content publishing platform that makes it easy and rewarding for creators to contribute their art directly from their mobile devices as well as from their desktops. This new platform should significantly improve the variety, timeliness and relevancy of the content available to our users.

 

“In the iOS universe, we continue to make progress after being removed from the iTunes store in early 2016. We recently launched a ‘Premium Ringtones & Marimba Remixes’ iTunes app, and we are building out our content catalogue and scaling our user base. Furthermore ‘Zedge Wallpapers’ on iOS is now benefitting from content focused updates that have significantly improved the app’s ratings.

 

 

 

 

“In summarizing the quarter I would highlight our doubling down on projects that we expect to put us back on a growth trajectory especially across higher value geographies, and executing with excellence on a highly focused set of user and content-centric initiatives.”

 

Jonathan Reich, CFO and COO of Zedge, added, “If we are successful in executing on our growth initiatives, we expect to realize a disproportionate benefit from improving ARPMAU. The third quarter’s 5.1% sequential increase in app ARPMAU, which we achieved despite it being a seasonally slow period, reflects how attractive our user base is to advertisers. We continue mining ways to unlock value including the introduction of new ad units and offering the ability to purchase premium ringtones. We will also test several new monetization layers in the months to come which will likely add incremental revenue to our existing monetization stack. Our strategic focus on content will drive long term, sustainable user growth and increased customer value.”
