Avi Cohen, CEO of RR Media, commented, "We are pleased with the results for the second quarter considering we continue to face macro-economic challenges in Russia and Western Europe throughout the first half of 2015. We view this as a temporary disruption to our business, and remain dedicated to maintaining strong customer relationships in the region so that we are able to quickly ramp our operations once the situation there improves.

"In the second quarter, we made significant progress building scale and expanding our geographic presence through the acquisitions of Satlink Communications and ESS. The immediate financial benefit of these acquisitions when comparing total results for sequential quarters is partially offset by the seasonality of our sports and live events business."

"Looking ahead, we are focused on leveraging the scale of our business, continuing our efforts to add upper tier customers and diversify our services to drive improved margins and revenue growth. New growth opportunities include the fully digital European media center recently opened in London, which enables us to provide a wide range of digital media solutions to our European customers as well as the expansion of our central European business leveraging the ESS acquisition. We also signed an agreement to deliver the Italian government channels RAI Italia, Rai News 24 and Rai World Premium to audiences worldwide," concluded Mr. Cohen.

Second Quarter 2015 Financial Results

Revenues for the second quarter of 2015 were $33.1 million, an increase of 1.9% compared with $32.5 million in the second quarter of 2014. Revenues for the second quarter of 2015 benefited from the recently acquired businesses, ESS and Satlink Communications; which was partially offset by the continued effect of the Euro/U.S. Dollar exchange rate and geopolitical issues in Russia. In addition, it is important to note that second quarter revenue is usually the slowest of the year, mainly due to the seasonality of the non-recurring sports and live events. 

The Company reported $30.1 million of Content Management and Distribution Services revenue, excluding non-core revenue from MSS, an increase of 1.5% from $29.7 million in the second quarter last year and an increase of 9.1% from $27.6 million in the first quarter this year.

Gross profit for the second quarter of 2015 was $7.2 million compared to $6.9 million for the second quarter of 2014. Gross margin for the second quarter of 2015 was 21.7% compared to 21.2% for the second quarter of 2014. Gross margin for Content Management and Distribution Services increased slightly to 22.5% compared to 22.2% for the same period last year, despite the contributions of Satlink and ESS, which historically have lower gross margins.

Non-GAAP operating income was $1.5 million for the second quarter of 2015, compared to $1.3 million for the second quarter of 2014. Non-GAAP operating margin for the second quarter of 2015 was 4.5% compared to 4.0% for the same period last year. Non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP operating margin for the second quarter of 2015 and 2014 exclude non-cash equity-based compensation charge, amortization of acquired intangible assets, cost of sales related changes in fair value of currency conversion derivatives, acquisition related expenses and amortization of acquisition related prepaid compensation expenses; and include the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates.

GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2015 was $0.2 million, or $0.01 per fully diluted share, compared to $0.7 million, or $0.04 per fully diluted share, for the same period of 2014.

Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2015 was $1.2 million, or $0.07 per fully diluted share, compared to $1.0 million, or $0.06 per fully diluted share, in the second quarter of 2014.

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2015 was $3.7 million compared to $3.6 million in the second quarter of 2014.

Backlog to be delivered in the next 12 months as of June 30, 2015 increased to $93 million, up from $76 million as of March 31, 2015.

Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities as of June 30, 2015 totaled $13.2 million compared with $22 million as of December 31, 2014. This reduction is cash was the result of the Satlink Communications and ESS acquisitions.

Full Year 2015 Guidance

The Company is reiterating its full year 2015 and 2016 guidance. Management expects total revenues to be in the range of $140 million to $148 million for 2015, and $161 million to $171 million for 2016; with Adjusted EBITDA of $17.6 million to $20.4 million for 2015, and a year-over-year increase of 25% to 30% in Adjusted EBITDA for 2016. It is important to note that the results for the second half of 2015 will benefit from the inclusion of the full six month financial results for Satlink Communications and ESS, which were acquired earlier in the year.

Management continues to expect some level of variation in mix from quarter to quarter leading to some fluctuations in revenues and gross margin between quarters.

Quarterly Dividend

In accordance with the Company's dividend policy, the Board of Directors declared a cash dividend in the amount of $0.07 per ordinary share and in the aggregate amount of approximately $1.2 million, representing an annual dividend yield of 4.0%. The dividend is payable on September 2, 2015 to all of the Company's shareholders of record at the end of the trading day on NASDAQ on August 17, 2015.
