Spiral Toys Reports Second Quarter 2015 Results

Commercial Product Sales Commenced With the Launch of CloudPets and Marked Completion of Spiral Toy's Development Stage

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 13, 2015) - Spiral Toys (OTCQB: STOY), a leading provider of mobile-connected, wireless entertainment technology, reported results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2015.

Q2 2015 Highlights

  • Launched CloudPets, the company's flagship line of connected, interactive plush toys, supported by a $9.6 million partner-funded television and digital advertising campaign on major children's networks, including Nickelodeon, The Cartoon Network, ABC Family and Disney XD.

  • Received orders for more than 1 million CloudPet units from Spiral's toy distribution partner, which will be sold to major retailers across the U.S. and Canada 

  • Generated the first significant quarterly revenue for the company, totaling $1.5 million on orders for approximately 339,000 CloudPets from retailers and consumers.

Management Commentary

"We crossed a number of major milestones in the second quarter of 2015, as we emerged from the development stage to the first significant commercial sales generated by our mobile-connected platform technology," said Spiral CEO, Mark Meyers. "Our first major multi-media advertising campaign generated a much greater than expected retail demand for CloudPets, resulting in more than a million units ordered from our distribution partner during the quarter. This has increased by more than 60% since quarter-end, driven by orders from new major retailers.

"During the quarter we also recognized a small amount of licensing fee revenue on the delivery of approximately 40,000 CloudPets to retailers. We expect these licensing fees, which are recognized as units are shipped to retailers, to increase substantially over the next few quarters as more CloudPets arrive on the shelves of major retailers throughout the U.S. and Canada.

"As our retail rollout continues to gain momentum, we are preparing for the fall launch of a second national television marketing campaign aimed at enhancing our CloudPets brand, increasing awareness of our CloudPets mobile app and further building retail demand as we head into the holiday season.

"Our recently updated CloudPets 2.0 mobile app has introduced new functionality and now allows for in-app purchases of interactive games, children's music, and other premium content. We expect to begin generating high-margin revenue from the sale of digital content in the second half of the year, as the sale of CloudPets brings in new mobile users, including children and parents alike.

"The success of CloudPets has encouraged the continued development of three new product lines that are based on our platform technology, a technology designed to create an interactive social media experience around physical consumer products. Two of these products are on track for launch in 2016, which will follow similar go-to-market strategies that made the rollout of CloudPets so successful.

"We are also evaluating opportunities to acquire additional titles and content that are complementary to our current mobile app offerings, and which furthers our broader mission of building a high-value, digital ecosystem of connected users."

Financial Overview

Revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2015 totaled $1.5 million, which also marked the first meaningful revenue generated by the company since it began its platform technology commercialization phase this year.

Gross margin was 11.9% for the three months ended June 30, 2015, generating gross profit of $180,000, driven by the manufacturing of electronic components that power CloudPets' connected and interactive technology. Looking toward the remainder of 2015, margins are expected to expand due to an anticipated reduction in production costs as volume increases.

Total operating expenses during the quarter ended June 30, 2015 were $938,000 as compared to $50,000 for the same period in 2014. The increase reflects expenses incurred in connection with CloudPets' product development and CloudPet's App development, as well as legal and professional fees in an aggregate amount of $370,000. Although ongoing expenses in connection with such legal and professional services will remain, expenses this quarter may be higher than in future quarters due to the payment of initial fees. The investment was made to prepare the company for future growth and development.

Net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2015 totaled $831,000 or $(0.02) per basic and diluted share, which compared to a loss of $72,000 or $(0.00) per basic and diluted for the same period in 2014.

As of June 30, 2015, working capital surplus totaled $183,000, which compared to a working capital deficit of $312,000 at March 31, 2015. This change was driven by the combination of a capital raise of $1.2 million during the six months ended June 30, 2015 and the commencement of revenue generation due to the launch of CloudPets, offset by the increase in operating expenses.
