Zedge Announces Third Quarter Fiscal 2018 Results

 

New York, NY & Trondheim, Norway – June 13, 2018: Zedge, Inc. (NYSE AMERICAN:ZDGE) today announced results for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2018, the three months ended April 30, 2018.

 

Third Quarter FY 2018 Operational and Financial Highlights

(Results are for the 3rd quarter FY 2018 and are compared to the 3rd quarter FY 2017 except where otherwise noted.)

 

MAU (Monthly Active Users) for the last 30 days of the quarter increased 7.9% to 34.2 million from 31.7 million in the comparable period of 2017 driven primarily by strong growth in the emerging markets but down 3.7% from January 2018 with the majority of the decline attributable to the well-developed markets;

 

Total installs at April 30, 2018 increased 23.5% to 321.5 million from 260.4 million;

 

Quarterly revenue increased 0.8% to $2.55 million from $2.53 million;

 

Average revenue per MAU derived from our apps (ARPMAU) declined 10.8% for the quarter to $0.0222 from $0.0249 in Q2, the first sequential decline in seven quarters;

 

Selling, General and Administration (SG&A) expense increased 2.0% to $2.20 million from $2.15 million, primarily attributable to the costs associated with the continuing development of Zedge Premium partially offset by the costs saving from the workforce reduction initiative implemented at the end of Q1 of fiscal 2018;

 

Loss from operations during the quarter was $339 thousand, compared to a loss of $193 thousand, after accounting for depreciation and amortization of $317 thousand and $166 thousand, respectively;

 

Zedge Premium, our marketplace offering, has been live for both iOS and Android users since April 2018. The overall KPIs are encouraging and we are highly focused on scaling this offering;

 

Zedge is seeking to open a development center in Lithuania in order to accelerate development of Zedge Premium;

 

For the nine months ended April 30, 2018, cash flow from operating activities was a positive $784 thousand an improvement of $597 thousand compared to the same period last year;

 

Net loss per share of $0.03 compared to net loss per share of $0.02;

 

Zedge has made the necessary changes to comply with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”).

 

 

 

 

Management Remarks

“Q3 2018 was a mixed bag for us. On the upside, Zedge Premium, our marketplace for digital content, shows early promising potential. Even without aggressive promotion or deep product integration, usage and conversion rates are outpacing our expectations,“ said Tom Arnoy, CEO. We are heavily focused on scaling Zedge Premium, initially by building a robust self-serve platform which will enable far broader artist participation, expanding the number of content verticals that we support, and increasing the number of ways in which artists can market and monetize their content. Separately, we are happy to announce that Nicki Minaj, a multi-platinum artist, is now using Zedge Premium to promote her new music and upcoming world tour.”

 

“At the same time, MAU was negatively impacted by both seasonal factors and the overall lack of growth in new smartphones sales. Although MAU grew by 2.5 million, or 7.9%, when compared to the same period last year, it fell by 3.7% sequentially, with the decline in well-developed markets reaching 6.2% sequentially. On a year over year basis, MAU in well-developed countries fell by 7.6% while growing by 24.5% in emerging markets, which now constitute 55.8% of our user base. This geographic shift coupled with lower advertising rates in emerging markets when compared to well-developed markets resulted in a decline in revenue.”

 

Jonathan Reich, CFO and COO of Zedge, said, “Although not a stellar quarter when viewed from a financial perspective, there were some positives, including cashflow from operating activities of $784 thousand for the nine months ended April 30, 2018, an improvement of $597 thousand compared to the same period last year as well as better timing related to prepaid expenses. Additionally, cash plus receivables minus payables was basically flat quarter-over-quarter. With GDPR compliance behind us we will continue working on lowering our infrastructure costs by migrating more functionality to higher quality, lower cost, cloud-based services. Additionally, we are in the midst of opening a development center in Lithuania, to help accelerate the ongoing delivery of Zedge Premium, at a lower cost, when compared to Norway or the US. We are excited by the possibilities of Zedge Premium and aspire to serve as the premier marketplace for personalized digital goods in the mobile ecosystem.”
