Monster Digital, Inc. Reports Financial Results for the Second Quarter and Six Months Ended June 30, 2016

SIMI VALLEY, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 15, 2016) - Monster Digital, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSDI), ("Monster Digital" or the "Company"), which develops, markets and distributes Monster branded products for use in high-performance consumer electronics, mobile products and computing applications, today announced its unaudited financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2016.

Company Highlights

  • Quarter over Quarter Revenue Growth: Net sales increased to $1.7 million in the three months ended June 30, 2016 as compared to $538,000 in the three months ended March 31, 2016 driven by the Company's 720p and 1080p action sports cameras.
  • Completed Initial Public Offering: Monster Digital closed its Initial Public Offering on July 13, 2016 for gross proceeds of $9,132,750.
  • New product mix: Monster Digital now has the resources to move forward and expand its product offering to include the first production run of two new action sports cameras.

David H. Clarke, Chairman and CEO of Monster Digital commented, "We are pleased to have completed our Initial Public Offering. This has been an important milestone, supporting our goal to bring to market Monster branded, premium products at competitive prices. We are encouraged by the increase in revenues and gross margin resulting from the launch of our line of action sports cameras, but our work ahead has just commenced. We are diligently working toward achieving profitability, driving revenues while at the same time reducing operating costs, and continuing to add new technologies to our product mix."

Financial Highlights for the Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2016

Revenue increased approximately 26% for the three months ended June 30, 2016 to $1.7 million compared to $1.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015. The sale of our new action sports camera product line began to have a positive impact on sales in 2016.

Net Loss was $1.24 million, or $(0.33) per basic and diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2016 compared to a net loss of $1.16 million or $(0.38) per basic and diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2015.
