Crexendo Reports Third Quarter 2013 Financial Results

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - Nov 12, 2013) -  Crexendo, Inc. (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 third quarter of 2013.

Financial highlights for Crexendo's third quarter of 2013 included:

Consolidated revenue for the third quarter of 2013 decreased 11% or $0.3 million to $2.4 million compared to $2.7 million for the second quarter of 2013 and decreased 37% or $1.5 million compared to $3.9 million for the third quarter of prior year. 

Net loss for the third quarter of 2013 was $(1.6) million or $(0.15) per diluted common share, compared to net loss of $(806,000) or $(0.08) per diluted common share for the third quarter of prior year.

Cash used for operations for the third quarter of 2013 was $(1.5) million compared to cash used for operations of $(585,000) in second quarter of 2013 and cash used for operations of $(493,000) for the third quarter of prior year. 

Segment Results

The Company has three operating segments, which consist of Crexendo Network Services, Crexendo Web Services and StoresOnline. Effective October 1, 2012, the Company changed its reporting segments to reflect the allocation of previously unallocated corporate expenses to each of the three operating segments. 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.

Crexendo Network Services

Revenue for the third quarter of 2013 increased 196% to $696,000 compared to $235,000 in the prior year quarter. Network Services backlog, which is anticipated to be recognized within the next thirty-six to sixty months, increased to $5.2 million as of September 30, 2013 compared to $2.2 million as of September 30, 2012.

Total Network Services operating expenses for the third quarter of 2013 increased 34% to $2.1 million compared to $1.5 million for the prior year quarter.

Total segment loss before income taxes for the third quarter of 2013 increased 5% to $(1.4) million compared to $(1.3) million for the prior year quarter.

Crexendo Web Services

Revenue for the third quarter of 2013 decreased 7% to $533,000 from $575,000 in the prior year quarter. 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 $0.4 million to $0.8 million as of September 30, 2013 compared to $1.2 million as of June 30, 2013. This shift in focus will allow us to focus on our rapidly growing network services segment. 

Total segment operating expenses for the third quarter of 2013 decreased 22% to $1.3 million compared to $1.6 million for the prior year quarter.

Total segment loss before income taxes for the third quarter of 2013 decreased 31% to $(721,000) compared to $(1.0) million for the prior year quarter.

StoresOnline

Revenue for the third quarter of 2013 decreased 61% to $1.2 million compared to $3.1 million for the prior year quarter. 

Total segment operating expenses decreased 57% to $831,000 compared to $1.9 million for the prior year quarter.

Segment other income, primarily related to interest on the collection of accounts receivable for the third quarter of 2013 decreased 79% to $86,000 compared to $409,000 for the prior year quarter.

Total segment income before income taxes for the third quarter of 2013 decreased 71% to $454,000 compared to $1.5 million for the prior year quarter.

Steven G. Mihaylo, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "I am very pleased with the progress of the business; our results continue to be in line with our internal expectations and our plan for growing the business. I am also encouraged by the improving rate of decline in the cash balance we saw this quarter. I believe this shows that our cost reductions are having a positive impact on the business. While I am not certain this will continue since our EPTA's continue to decline and will no longer add to our cash balance, what we saw this quarter is a good metric. We continue to see improvements in our sales force results and the growth from sales and partners in our dealer channel. These are also very positive trends. We are holding our first Business Partners' Conference (BPC) this week in Phoenix, which demonstrates the growth, excitement, and support for this channel."

Mihaylo continued, "We continue to consolidate our focus and resources. We have determined that we will no longer be providing SEO services to customers other than enterprise and national accounts. This allows us to both reduce our work force and to fully concentrate on our 'sweet spot,' our business cloud based telephony as well as our soon to be released new web builder software platform. We also continue to look at our liquidity and I am discussing with the Board various debt and equity options. We expect to have clarity on that by year's end. We continue to monitor costs, sales and operations carefully. I continue to believe we are in the right space with the right products and people. I am very confident in our future."
