PHOENIX, Nov. 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mobivity Holdings Corp. (OTCQB:MFON), creators of the award-winning platform for intelligent and personalized marketing in the real world, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2017 (“Q3 2017”).

Third Quarter Highlights:

  • Year-to-date revenues for the first nine months of 2017 grew 5% to $6.4 million compared to $6.1 million for the same period in 2016.
  • Total minimum contract values in 2017 increased to $19.3 million, an increase of more than 260% over $5.3 million in minimum contract values at the same time in 2016.
  • Average contract term increased 150% year over year, from 1 year to nearly 2.5 years.
  • Deferred revenue increased 1,200% to $2.1 million at September 30, 2017 compared to $160,000 at September 30, 2016.
  • Net cash used in operating activities decreased to $1.2 million through the first nine months of 2017, a 31% decrease as compared to a $1.8 million use of cash during the first nine months of 2016.
  • Unrestricted cash increased to more than $1.7 million, representing an increase of $1.1 million, or nearly 200%, compared to the previous quarter.

Dennis Becker, Mobivity Chairman and CEO, commented, “The third quarter of 2017 marked a key period in the growth of our business as customers have begun to increase their commitment to using our technology. Deferred revenue increased more than 1,200% and the growth in our contract values has been tremendous. It’s only a matter of time for our top line growth to start accelerating as word of our name brand clientele’s success becomes more widespread. For perspective, I’ll point out that our top three clients operate marketing budgets that combine for nearly one billion dollars. A lot of that budget will continue to transition from legacy marketing channels, such as print, to AI-powered digital solutions like ours. Exiting the “adoption phase”, we believe we’ve only scratched the surface of these marketing budgets thus far and we’re looking forward to accelerating efforts to grow our piece of the pie.”

Third Quarter 2017 Financial Results:

Revenue for Q3 2017 was $2,084,000, representing a decrease of 5% from $2,183,000 in Q3 2016. The decrease in revenue was primarily due to front-end pricing adjustments associated with prepayments offered on long-term contracts with large enterprise customers. Revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was $6,436,000, an increase of $334,000, or 5%, compared to the same period in 2016.

Deferred revenue was $2.1 million at September 30, 2017 compared to $160,000 at September 30, 2016. Deferred revenue primarily consists of billings or payments received in advance of revenue recognition from customers and is recognized as the revenue recognition criteria are met. The increase in deferred revenue is due to large receipts of prepayments from large enterprise customers.

Gross margin was 62% for Q3 2017 and 70% year to date. This compares to 74% in Q3 2016 and 76% for the prior year to date. The decrease in gross margin is principally due to higher SMS and application costs associated with messaging fees and new surcharges charged by text messaging carriers initiated in the second half of 2017.

Operating expenses (excluding goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges) for Q3 2017 were $2,772,000 compared to $3,172,000 in Q3 2016. The decrease in operating expenses was due to a decrease in general and administrative and sales and marketing costs of $800,000, partially offset by an increase in engineering, research & development personnel related costs of nearly $500,000 to support the Company’s growth. Operating loss for the quarter was $(1,475,000) compared to $(1,554,000) in the corresponding period in the prior year. Comprehensive loss for Q3 2017 was $(1,558,000), or $(0.04) per diluted share, compared to $($1,577,000), or $(0.05) per diluted share in Q3 2016.

Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Loss, a non-GAAP metric (see note on non-GAAP Measurements) was $(1,212,000) for Q3 2017 compared to $(901,000) in Q3 2016.

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.

Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted Earnings per Share, or EPS, is net loss before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, and other non-cash operating income and expenses. Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted EPS are presented exclusively as a supplemental disclosure because management believes that it is widely used to measure the performance, and as a basis for valuation, of Software as a Service (SaaS) and other tech companies. Management uses Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted EPS as measures of the operating performance of its segments and to compare the operating performance of its operations with those of its competitors. The Company also presents Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted EPS because it is used by some investors as a way to measure a company’s ability to incur and service debt, make capital expenditures and meet working capital requirements. Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted EPS should not be considered as an alternative to net loss as an indicator of the Company’s performance, as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity, or as an alternative to any other measure determined in accordance with GAAP. Unlike net income/(loss) and earnings per share, Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted EPS does not include depreciation or interest expense and, therefore, does not reflect current or future capital expenditures or the cost of capital. The Company compensates for these limitations by using Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted EPS as only one of several comparative tools, together with GAAP measurements, to assist in the evaluation of operating performance. Such GAAP measurements include operating income, net income/(loss), cash flows from operations and cash flow data. The Company has significant uses of cash flows, including capital expenditures, taxes and other non-recurring charges, which are not reflected in Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted EPS. The Company’s calculation of Adjusted Net Loss may be different from the calculation methods used by other companies and, therefore, comparability may be limited.
