Tuesday, July 17, 2012

Destiny Media Announces Third Quarter Results00:01 EDT Tuesday, July 17, 2012 VANCOUVER, July 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Destiny Media Technologies (TSXV: DSY) (OTCQX: DSNY) is pleased to announce results for the quarter ending May 31, 2012.  Revenues of $1,022,921 reflect a 14% increase from the prior quarter, but a 13% decline from the prior year.  The decline  as compared to the prior year quarter is attributable to the recognition of a single revenue item included in a multi-year agreement that was recognized in Q3-2011.  European revenues increased 11% over the prior year and currently represent 44% of our music distribution revenue.  Nine month revenue was approximately the same as in prior year. Operating expenses for the quarter declined from $853,098 in the prior year to $208,827.  The decline is attributable to a gain on  the settlement of litigation in Australia.  The company agreed to accept a settlement with a value of approximately $859,000. The company will receive the payment, which is secured by real estate and a general security agreement, over six years.  The outstanding balance attracts 10.25% interest and is recorded as a long term receivable.  Litigation costs during the period were significant.  Over nine months, the company spent approximately $607,000 on legal fees.  This expense will decline significantly in future quarters.  R&D expenses increased 25% over the prior year, reflecting increased investments in IP, infrastructure and staffing to support the launch of our new Clipstream® and Play MPE® products. Net income increased 182% over the prior year to $651,138 ($.01 per share).   Three Months  Three Months  Nine Months  Nine Months   Ended  Ended  Ended  Ended   May 31,  May 31,  May 31,  May 31,   2012  2011  2012  2011   $  $  $  $       Revenue 1,022,921 1,176,473 3,042,363 3,074,183       Operating expenses      General and administrative (469,548) 262,467 439,574 922,012 Sales and marketing 162,146 184,280 554,816 598,811 Research and development 492,041 392,818 1,456,435 1,151,463 Amortization 24,248 13,533 54,987 44,313   208,887 853,098 2,505,812 2,716,599 Income from operations 814,034 323,375 536,551 357,584 Other income (expenses)      Other income 4,462 43 4,462 3,073 Interest income 22,648 1,445 27,619 6,527 Interest and other expense (6) (143) (1,186) (628) Income before income taxes 841,138 324,720 567,446 366,556 Income tax recovery (expense) - deferred (190,000) (94,000) (190,000) (106,000) Net income (loss) 651,138 230,720 377,446 260,556 Net income (loss) per common share, basic and diluted 0.01 0.01 0.01 0.01 About Destiny Media Technologies, Inc.
