MTS Announces Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results


RA'ANANA, Israel and RIVER EDGE, New Jersey, Aug. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Mer Telemanagement Solutions Ltd. (MTS) (Nasdaq Capital Market: MTSL), a global provider of telecommunications expense management (TEM), enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions, and video advertising solutions for online and mobile platforms, today released its financial results for the second quarter of 2017.

Mer Telemanagement Solutions Ltd.

MTS's revenues for the second quarter of 2017 totaled $2.4 million compared with $3.4 million in the second quarter of 2016 and $2.4 million in the first quarter of 2017. After a net loss of $(899,000), or $(0.10) per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2017, we are pleased to announce that the Company recorded net income of $91,000 for the second quarter, or $0.01 per diluted share compared with a net loss of $(22,000), or $(0.00) per diluted share for the second quarter of 2016.  On a non-GAAP basis (as described and reconciled below), the Company posted net loss for the second quarter of $(179,000), or ($0.02) per diluted share, compared with net income of $262,000, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2016.

Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2017 were $4.8 million compared with $6.7 million for the comparable period in 2016. Net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2017 was $(808,000), or ($0.09) per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $(246,000) or ($0.03) per diluted share in the comparable period in 2016. On a non-GAAP basis (as described and reconciled below), net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2017 was $(686,000), or ($0.08) per diluted share, compared with net income of $294,000, or $0.04 per diluted share, for the comparable period in 2016.

Commenting on the results, Mr. Haim Mer, Chairman of the Board of MTS, said, "Our return to profitable operations in the second quarter reflects our successful execution of the operating plan that we announced last quarter. We reduced our ongoing operating expenses substantially in the second quarter and are working diligently to maintain our operating margins in the face of the inherent business risks and fluctuations that we face. We are now concentrating on growing the business.  Our Vexigo operating unit has focused on its core digital advertising business and we have been successful in initiating steps to connect more partners. We believe brand safety is extremely important, and we are working to guarantee even higher quality traffic to customers.  These efforts are succeeding in increasing our video advertising volume."

"The telecommunications side of our business continues to be stable as we have maintained a high level of satisfaction from our customer base.  We also released a new version of our innovative eXsight Uni?ed Communications and Collaboration (UC&C) Management Solution, which enables companies to increase efficiencies and reduce costs," said Mr. Mer.

As previously announced, the Company received NASDAQ Staff Determination letters indicating that it is not in compliance with NASDAQ's minimum shareholders' equity and share price continued listing requirements. The Company submitted its plan to regain compliance with the minimum $2.5 million in shareholders' equity requirement as set forth in NASDAQ Marketplace Rule 4320(e)(2)(B), and it received a notice from the Listing Qualifications Department of NASDAQ advising that it has until August 15, 2017 to regain compliance. The plan to regain compliance, which includes the conversion of $1.2 million in debt into equity and the sale of $400,000 of ordinary shares in a private placement, is detailed in the Company's Proxy Statement for its Annual General Meeting of Shareholders to be held on August 13, 2017, that was furnished to the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 29, 2017.

Subsequent to the mailing of the proxy material, the proposed conversion of $1.2 million of debt held by former Vexigo shareholders into 1.2 million ordinary shares of the Company was amended to provide that the debt would be converted into five year warrants which provide for the issuance of 1.2 million ordinary shares for no additional consideration. The warrants are subject to a two-year lock-up period. Subject to the debt conversion consummation and the approval at the Annual General Meeting, the Company expects to raise $400,000 in a private placement to several board members, certain former shareholders and beneficial shareholders of Vexigo Ltd. and a former officer of the Company.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures: This release includes non-GAAP net loss and basic and diluted net loss per share. These non-GAAP measures exclude the following items:

  • Amortization of purchased intangible assets (net of tax effect)
  • Stock based compensation expenses
  • Reorganization and other non-recurring costs

MTS's management believes that the presentation of non-GAAP measures provides useful information to investors and management regarding financial and business trends relating to the Company's results of operations as well as the net amount of cash generated by its business operations. These non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. MTS believes that non-GAAP financial measures should only be used to evaluate the Company's results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures. See below for a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP measures.
