FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Mobivity Announces 88% Increase in Revenue for First Quarter of 2020

 

PHOENIX, AZ – April 29, 2020 – Mobivity Holdings Corp. (OTCQB:MFON), maker of the award-winning Recurrency platform that increases customer visits and spend in restaurants, retail and personal care brands, today announced financial results for the first quarter (“Q1”) ending March 31, 2020.

 

Q1 2020 Highlights

Revenues increased 88% to $4.6 million compared to $2.4 million in Q1 2019. 

Net loss narrowed by 44% to $(1.0) million compared to $(1.8) million in Q1 2019. 

Gross margins increased to 65% in Q1 of 2020 versus 52% during the same period last year. 

Customer SMS text message marketing volumes increased 34% in March of 2020 compared to March 2019. 

Executed an expanded license to a major customer expected to add $2.5 million to annual gross revenues. The term of the software services and licensing agreement has been extended through December 31, 2024. 

Dennis Becker, Mobivity Chairman and CEO, commented, “Digital is no longer a slow march to the future, but an urgent pursuit of survival. Direct mail, newspapers, large venue advertising, and even in-store purchases are now a personal health risk. Consumers are transitioning to low-contact forms of consumption including pick-up, drive-thru, and delivery, all paid for online or through mobile apps. Since launching our Recurrency platform in 2016, we’ve consistently demonstrated a significant and sustainable return on investment for our customers by delivering billions of digital engagements that have proven to increase consumer frequency and spend. Brands, faced with an inability to pursue traditional marketing channels such as live events and televised sports, are urgently turning to one-to-one digital marketing channels like our Recurrency platform.”

Mr. Becker continued, “As a result, the first quarter was one of the strongest quarters in the history of our company. The COVID situation continues to challenge the entire economy. Mobivity and its customers are not immune, but to date our customers have been among the least impacted and our technology helps our brands evolve to address this new operating environment. Our customers increased their Recurrency-powered marketing campaigns by more than 30% in March and we remain optimistic that continued growth is still achievable throughout 2020. Furthermore, on the heels of record revenues and increased margins, we’ve realigned our budget to approach cash flow break even. I’d like to congratulate our team at Mobivity for a record quarter, and just as importantly for their unfazed support of our customers through these trying times.”

Non-GAAP Measurements

This press release includes certain financial information which constitutes "non-GAAP financial measures" as defined by the SEC. A full reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures to GAAP can be found in the tables of today's press release. Non-GAAP adjusted net income is supplemental to results presented under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. These non-GAAP measures are used by management to facilitate period-to-period comparisons and analysis of Mobivity's operating performance and liquidity. Management believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors in trending, analyzing and benchmarking the performance and value of Mobivity's business. These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, other similar measures reported in accordance with GAAP.
