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

Segment Results

The Company has two operating segments, which consist of Hosted Telecom Services and Web Services. Effective April 1, 2014, the Company changed its reporting segments to report the StoresOnline and Crexendo Web Services business units as one reportable segment. The Company revised its segment reporting to reflect changes in how the Chief Operating Decision Maker (CODM) internally measures performance and allocates resources. Segment operating results for the prior year has been revised to conform to current year segment operating results presentation and disclosures.

Hosted Telecom Services 

Revenue for the second quarter of 2014 increased 96% to $963,000 compared to $491,000 for the second quarter of the prior year. Hosted Telecom Services backlog, which is anticipated to be recognized within the next thirty-six months, was $8.4 million at June 30, 2014 compared to a backlog of $4.3 million at June 30, 2013.

Total Hosted Telecom Services segment operating expenses for the second quarter of 2014 increased 34% to $2.3 million compared to $1.7 million for the second quarter of the prior year.

Total Hosted Telecom Services segment loss before income taxes for the second quarter of 2014 increased 8% to $(1.4) million compared to $(1.3) million for the second quarter of the prior year.

Web Services

Revenue for the second quarter of 2014 decreased 62% to $845,000, compared to $2.3 million for the second 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 $117,000 at June 30, 2014 compared to $1.2 million at June 30, 2013. This shift in focus will allow us to concentrate on our Hosted Telecom Services segment and concentrate on our website development software platform and web hosting services.

Total Web Services segment operating expenses for the second quarter of 2014 decreased 53% to $1.0 million compared to $2.2 million for the second quarter of the prior year.

Total Web Services segment loss before income taxes for the second quarter of 2014 increased 181% to $(126,000) compared to income before income taxes of $155,000 for the second quarter of the prior year.

Steven G. Mihaylo, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We made a strategic decision with the internal sales force to concentrate on larger enterprise sales. We have several large sales that we believe will close this quarter. Larger enterprise sales have a far more complicated sales process and take far longer than smaller sales, but provide substantial strategic benefits in the long term and avoid channel conflict with our dealers. We believe that the dealer network will be able to provide the smaller sales, and despite our strongest sales quarter by the dealer network, we have not yet had the traction we were hoping for. Although I see great progress in the dealer network it is not fully matured, we are working on that daily and I expect to see much better results in the next several quarters. Additionally, Crexendo's engineering team is working diligently with our contract manufactures to bring the cost of our end-points down. We expect a substantial decrease in the cost of goods sold in the fourth quarter and further cost reductions in 2015."

Mihaylo added, "With all that said I do see great progress. We have done a good job of reducing costs, and streamlining the sales force. The dealer network continues to attract highly qualified dealers and should grow substantially. Our products and services continue to gain market acceptance and we believe we provide substantial value to SMB and enterprise customers. The Company is reviewing strategic financing options which we believe will provide long term stability and enable us to continue to grow the business both organically and by strategic acquisitions. I continue to not only say I believe in the Company but support that belief by my actions, in the 10Q we have filed today, you will see I have continued to agree to provide backstop financing to the Company if that becomes necessary. My belief however is that we are seeing good progress and that we should continue to improve our results and continue on the road to profitability and long term growth.
