  • Loss from continuing operations of $0.9 million narrowed by $0.4 million sequentially; Positive Adj. EBITDA(1) of $85 thousand
  • Signed distribution / technology partnership with Airbus DS Communications, a global leader and trusted source for mission-critical communications technologies, establishing a key new sales channel for the company

RMG Networks Holding Corporation (NASDAQ: RMGN), or RMG, a leading provider of technology-driven visual communications solutions, today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016.

"During the third quarter we delivered sequential revenue growth, achieved positive Adj. EBITDA and made significant progress against key strategic initiatives that we believe will accelerate our business momentum, expand our sales pipeline and drive long-term profitable growth," commented Robert Michelson, Chief Executive Officer. "Our new strategic partnerships with Manhattan Associates, Ragan Communications and Airbus DS Communications, meaningfully advance our position in the key solution areas we are targeting by expanding our market reach. We are already seeing tangible benefits of these relationships in our sales pipeline. In addition, our recent RMG MAX LED product launch and INVIEW Mobile® software enhancements deepen our innovative solution portfolio and provide new opportunities to connect with our customers."

"We continue to be encouraged by the traction we are gaining in North America resulting from improved sales effectiveness and our focus on larger, more profitable deals," Michelson continued. "Internationally, we experienced a noticeable rebound in sales from the EurAsia region during the third quarter, following a brief slowdown in the second quarter resulting from economic uncertainty around Brexit. We remain cautiously optimistic on our outlook in the Middle East given our strong pipeline and key partnerships in the region, despite continued economic uncertainty associated with low oil pricing, which has continued to delay the timing of certain orders. Overall, we were very pleased with our third quarter financial results and strategic progress year-to-date and believe we are well positioned to build on this momentum for the remainder of 2016 and into 2017."

Third Quarter Financial Review

Total revenue of $9.5 million increased 9% from $8.7 million in the second quarter of 2016 and decreased 7% from $10.2 million in the same quarter last year.

  • Products revenue of $4.2 million increased 37% from $3.1 million in the second quarter of 2016, resulting primarily from strong sales performance in North America and improving market conditions in Europe.
  • Maintenance & content services revenue of $3.5 million remained flat from the second quarter of 2016.
  • Professional services revenue of $1.8 million decreased 15% from $2.1 million in the second quarter of 2016, resulting primarily from large 3rd party project implementations in the second quarter of 2016.

Gross margin of 63.6% increased from 58.3% in the second quarter of 2016, resulting primarily from a favorable sales mix with a higher proportion of software sales and non-recurring credits in the third quarter of 2016 to product and maintenance costs from a component manufacturer and resolution of a vendor billing matter.

Total operating expenses were $6.9 million, a 5% increase from $6.6 million in the second quarter of 2016, resulting primarily from investment in sales and marketing initiatives.

GAAP loss from continuing operations of $0.9 million improved from a loss of $1.3 million in the second quarter of 2016, resulting primarily from increased revenues and a higher gross margin. On a non-GAAP basis, Adj. EBITDA of $85 thousand improved from a loss of $438 thousand in the second quarter of 2016.

Business Outlook

"We are pleased with the progress we are making and believe we are well positioned heading into the fourth quarter, which historically is our strongest quarter of the year," Michelson concluded. "We remain optimistic about the long-term financial prospects of the business and believe the strategic elements we have put in place over the past 2 years, in conjunction with our experienced leadership team, positions the company to take advantage of our large addressable market, our superior product offering and our strong go to market plan. We remain focused on building on the key initiatives of our multi-year strategic plan by investing in our products, improving our business efficiency, generating ROI for our customers and achieving long-term growth and shareholder value. We have established a track record of continued, measurable progress and improvement in our financial results and are encouraged by the momentum we see in the market."

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This release includes Adj. EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure as defined under SEC regulations. In evaluating its business, RMG Networks considers and uses Adj. EBITDA as a supplemental measure of its operating performance, and believes that many of the company's investors use this non-GAAP measure to monitor the company's performance. This measure should not be considered as a substitute for the most directly comparable GAAP measure and should not be used in isolation, but in conjunction with this GAAP measure. Our definition of Adj. EBITDA is set forth in footnote (1) above, and a reconciliation between Adj. EBITDA and the relevant GAAP measure is set forth in the table at the end of this press release.

Financial results from RMG Networks' Airline Media Networks business have been excluded from continuing operations and are reported as discontinued operations in the Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive Loss due to the completion of the sale of this business on July 1, 2015. As a result, these financial results reflect the Enterprise business at RMG Networks, reported as continuing operations.

(1) A non-GAAP measure, we define Adj. EBITDA as income (loss) from continuing operations with adjustments for interest expense and other income, income tax expense, gain (loss) on change in warrant liability, depreciation and amortization expenses and stock-based compensation expense. See "About Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below and the reconciliation tables at the end of this release for more information regarding this non-GAAP financial measure.
