(NYSE MKT: EXE), a hosted services company that provides hosted telecommunications services, hosted website services, website development software and broadband internet services for businesses and entrepreneurs, today reported financial results for its first quarter of 2014.

Financial highlights for Crexendo's 2014 first quarter

Consolidated revenue for the first quarter of 2014 decreased 3% or $69,000 to $2.1 million compared to $2.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2013 and decreased 31% or $950,000 compared to $3.0 million for the first quarter of the prior year.

Net loss before income tax for the first quarter of 2014 of $(1.6) million compared to $(635,000) for the first quarter of the prior year. Net loss for the first quarter of 2014 of $(1.6) million or $(0.15) per diluted common share, compared to net loss of $(398,000) or $(0.04) per diluted common share for the first quarter of the prior year.

As of March 31, 2014, we have cash and cash equivalents, including restricted cash, of $4.3 million compared to $3.6 million as of December 31, 2013. On February 28, 2014, we entered into a sale-leaseback transaction with a Company owned by our Chief Executive Officer. We sold our corporate headquarters' land, building and fixtures for $2.0 million and entered into a lease agreement with rent payments payable in Crexendo common stock. 

Cash used for operations for the first quarter of 2014 was $(1.3) million compared to $(1.8) million for first quarter of the prior year. Cash provided by investing and financing activities for the first quarter 2014 was $2.0 million compared to cash used for investing and financing activities of $(57,000) for the first quarter of the prior year.

Segment Results

The Company has three operating segments, which consist of Crexendo Network Services, Crexendo Web Services and StoresOnline. 

Crexendo Network Services

Revenue for the first quarter of 2014 increased 148% to $955,000 compared to $385,000 for the first quarter of the prior year. Network Services backlog, which is anticipated to be recognized within the next thirty-six months, was $7.2 million at March 31, 2014 compared to a backlog of $3.5 million at March 31, 2013.

Total Network Services segment operating expenses for the first quarter of 2014 increased 52% to $2.5 million compared to $1.6 million for the first quarter of the prior year.

Total Network Services segment loss before income taxes for the first quarter of 2014 increased 21% to $(1.5) million compared to $(1.2) million for the first quarter of the prior year.

Crexendo Web Services

Revenue for the first quarter of 2014 decreased 53% to $252,000, compared to $533,000 for the first quarter of the prior year. We anticipate that our revenue from our web service segment will continue to decline due to our strategic decision to limit our provision of web services to our enterprise-sized customers. As a result of this shift in focus, our backlog has decreased to $208,000 at March 31, 2014 compared to $1.3 million at March 31, 2013. This shift in focus will allow us to focus on our rapidly growing Network Services segment and to concentrate more on our website hosting segment and website development software platform.

Total Web Services segment operating expenses for the first quarter of 2014 decreased 59% to $478,000 compared to $1.2 million for the first quarter of the prior year.

Total Web Services segment loss before income taxes for the first quarter of 2014 decreased 65% to $(220,000) compared to $(626,000) for the first quarter of the prior year.

StoresOnline

Revenue for the first quarter of 2014 decreased 58% to $865,000 compared to $2.1 million for the first quarter of the prior year. 

Total segment operating expenses decreased 26% to $806,000 for the first quarter of 2014 compared to $1.1 million for the first quarter of the prior year.

Segment other income, primarily related to interest on the collection of accounts receivable for the first quarter of 2014 decreased 75% to $51,000 compared to $206,000 for the first quarter of the prior year.

Total segment income before income taxes for the first quarter of 2014 decreased 91% to $110,000 compared to $1.2 million for the first quarter of the prior year.

Steven G. Mihaylo, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "This has been a fulfilling quarter for us. The legacy revenues continue to decline and in Q2 most of the collections will be completed. 2014 will be the first year where most of the sales will be generated from the new telecom hosting model and our web hosting business. We continue to make strides and are maximizing efficiencies with our direct sales force, while continuing to add resources to our dealer network. Although we have been making progress, we still have work to do. The backlog for Q1 2014 rate of growth was lower in comparison to Q4 2013. We believe that is due in part to a number of customers that rushed to complete the contracting process before year end including some large orders at the end of 2013. Therefore, we had a strong finish in Q4 2013 followed by Q1 2014 weakness. The first month of Q2 2014 is looking like Q2 will be a more consistent quarter. I am encouraged in our ongoing efforts particularly in both the caliber and enthusiasm of our direct sales force and our dealer partners. We continue to see our dealer partner channel grow and contribute higher sales and become a reliable, consistent and important part of our Company and our sales growth." 

Mihaylo added, "I continue to monitor our expenses very carefully and stress to our team, that we need to watch every penny. We will continue to grow the business both organically and through accretive acquisitions. We have several acquisitions that we are reviewing now. I am confident that we will continue to find appropriate acquisitions, we will see improvements in our direct sales and the continued growth of our dealer program will be the key to bring us to continued growth."
