One Horizon Group Announces Second Quarter 2014 Results

BAAR, SWITZERLAND--(Marketwired - Aug 13, 2014) - One Horizon Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: OHGI) ("One Horizon" or the "Company"), which develops and licenses bandwidth efficient mobile voice over Internet Protocol ("VoIP") platform for smart phones, today announced financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014.

One Horizon developed a proprietary VoIP platform ("Horizon Platform") that enables wireless carriers around the world to provide customized and optimized voice and data services over any mobile, fixed and satellite network through an easy to install mobile app. Its SmartPacket™ technology underlying the Horizon Platform enables greater bandwidth efficiency by reducing IP overhead and optimizing packet flow, delivery and playback. One Horizon targets emerging markets with high population densities, high penetration of mobile phones, congested mobile networks, and high growth in smartphone adoption. It has formed several joint ventures with local partners to capitalize on those opportunities.

Mobile operators pay an annual software licensing fee to the Company and tiered user fee for each active subscriber using the white-label VoIP service powered by the Horizon Platform. The Company continues to expand its revenue sources to mobile advertising and mobile payments by introducing new value-added services and features.

Recent Development Highlights:

  • Q2 2014 revenues were approximately $1.3 million vs. $1.25 million in Q2 2013
  • Gross margin improved from 29.4% in Q2 2013 to 57.9% in Q2 2014
  • Signed an agreement with the Industrial Development Agency of Ireland for possible funding and grants
  • Continued building up the LeiXin core network rollout for JV with Leiqiang Telecommunications Co. Ltd.
  • Founder and CTO Brian Collins named CEO in July

  • Closed a private placement of $1 million for a total of 10 units of securities, each unit consisting of 17,094 shares of Series A preferred stock and 10,000 Class B warrants.

"We are just beginning to see the benefits from years of hard work," stated Brian Collins, Founder and CEO of One Horizon. "After spending the last 6 years developing and perfecting One Horizon mobile VoIP software platform to meet the stringent demands of our customers, we remain focused on launching our unique services with our mobile carrier customers and increasing user adoption. Tier 1 and Tier 2 mobile service providers around the world are looking for ways to optimize their network while capturing a bigger piece of their customers' spending on mobile. Our technology enables them to achieve both and differentiate themselves from their competitors."

Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2014 were approximately $1.30 million, up 4% from $1.25 million in the same period in 2013. The increase in revenues was primarily due to higher sales of master licenses which Management expects to continue as more companies and users sign up for the One Horizon VoIP Platform. Overall contract value for master license contracts signed from inception through June 30, 2014 was $65.4 million, of which only $9.1 million was recognized through June 30, 2014. Contracts with Tier 1 entities typically require agreed-upon fixed payments over fixed future periods extending beyond one year. Contracts with Tier 2 entities have long-term variable payment terms based on customer usage. In addition to sales of master licenses, the Company recognized approximately $0.8 million of revenue from the sale of hardware, user licenses, consultancy and maintenance services during the three months ended June 30, 2014.

Cost of goods sold and operating expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2014 were approximately $0.55 million and $1.24 million respectively. Gross margin was 57.9% for the second quarter of 2014 compared to 29.4% for the same period a year ago. The primary reason for the increase in gross profit and gross margin was lower hardware sales and corresponding cost of sales.

Operating expenses was $1.2 million for the three months ended June 20, 2014 compared to $2.3 million in the same period a year ago. The Company reported an operating loss of $0.5 million for the second quarter of 2014 compared to an operating loss of $1.9 million in the second quarter of 2013. Excluding non-cash depreciation and amortization and stock-based compensation expenses, non-GAAP adjusted operating income for the three months ended June 30, 2014 was $0.2 million compared to a loss of $1.4 million in the same period a year ago.

The Company recorded a net loss of $0.55 million and a net loss per share attributable to common stockholder of $0.02 for the three months ended June 30, 2014, compared to a net loss of $1.9 million and $0.06 per share for same quarter in 2013. The weighted average shares outstanding increased from $31.7 million during the three months ended June 30, 2013 to $32.9 million during the same period in 2014 due to the issuance of shares to advisors and employees.

Business Updates

During the second quarter of 2014, the Company continued building up the LeiXin core network rollout. The Global Exchange (network control center) was placed in a high availability data center in Shanghai and eight Horizon line servers were connected to the telecommunications network. This level of rollout allowed the Company to issue a preliminary Android App to a group of Chinese students in Nanjing for them to evaluate the user Interface and the core features of our optimized smartphone App. Based on this feedback, the research and development teams in Ireland and China made some adjustments to the App look and feel service to accommodate this target user community.

One Horizon signed a global exchange agreement with a second tier telecommunications company in Hong Kong that targets U.S. citizens traveling overseas. Through a new configuration on the Horizon VoIP app called "RoamFrii," U.S. travelers can eliminate certain roaming charges while traveling internationally.

The research and development teams made further progress on technology and application upgrades. The team based in Switzerland is re-engineering the Horizon VoIP app user interface and expect to release the new version of the software in the third quarter of 2014.

On July 28, 2014, the board of directors appointed Brian Collins, Founder and the Chief Technology officer of the Company, Chief Executive Officer and President of the Company, effective July 28, 2014. Mr. Collins will also act as the Chairman of the Board of the Company upon his appointment as the Chief Executive Officer.
