MOL Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2014 Unaudited Financial Results, and Other Material Developments

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, March 27, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MOL Global, Inc. (Nasdaq:MOLG) ("MOL" or the "Company"), a leading e-payment enabler for online goods and services in emerging and developed markets, today announced (i) its unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter of 2014 and the full year ended December 31, 2014; (ii) management changes; and (iii) update on share repurchase program.

Fourth Quarter 2014 Highlights

  • Consolidated revenue increased by 28.1% to MYR61.0 million (US$17.4 million) from MYR47.6 million in the prior year period.
  • MOLPoints' segment revenue increased by 34.9% to MYR39.8 million (US$11.4 million) from MYR29.5 million in the prior year period.
  • MOLReloads' segment revenue increased by 5.5% to MYR9.3 million (US$2.6 million) from MYR8.8 million in the prior year period.
  • MOLPay's segment revenue increased by 3.2% to MYR3.2 million (US$0.9 million) from MYR3.1 million in the prior year period.
  • MMOG.asia's segment revenue increased by 42.4% to MYR8.2 million (US$2.4 million) from MYR5.8 million in the prior year period.

Mr. Ganesh Kumar Bangah, Chief Executive Officer of MOL, stated, "The past year was an exciting period for MOL marked by several milestones including our listing on the Nasdaq Global Market and expansion within key new geographies. Admittedly, we experienced some turbulence in the third quarter of 2014 but with stronger controls in place and a more experienced management team, we have emerged a more robust company. As we continue to expand our portfolio of payment services and deepen our presence in new markets such as the Middle East and South America, we are confident in our ability to achieve strong growth across all business segments in 2015."

Mr. Ramesh Pathmanathan, Group Chief Financial Officer of MOL, stated, "I am very pleased to join the MOL management team as Group CFO and present our fourth quarter financial results, which show the continuing growth of our core business. Along with our IPO last year, came many new expenses – many of them one-time costs – relating to listing fees, employee stock compensation and compliance. In order to help investors see the core growth of our business across the various segments, we supplemented the IFRS figures for several line items with non-IFRS figures that we believe better reflect the performance and potential of our core business. As the numbers suggest, our business fundamentals and growth drivers are strong, and as we continue to scale our business, the impact of the fixed costs associated with our listing will diminish and make way for greater shareholder earnings potential."

Fourth Quarter 2014 Business Milestones

  • Rolled out Bill Payment Services for the landline telecom provider, Telekom Malaysia and Astro Pay-TV utilizing MOLReloads terminals in Malaysia.
  • Rolled-out Point-of-Sales Activated (POSA) Gift Cards to 500 7-Eleven stores in Malaysia.
  • Signed an Agreement with Nordeus for mobile games payment collection using MOLPoints across 15 countries covering Southeast Asia, the Middle East and Brazil.
  • Expanded MOLPoints to the Middle East regions covering countries including the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Qatar and United Arab Emirates (UAE).
  • Launched a new mobile game on MMOG.asia called Dragon Guard, on the IOS and Android mobile platforms. MMOG.Asia also secured the license rights for the mobile version of its popular game, Boomz, previously only supported on the PC platform.

Fourth Quarter 2014 Financial Results

CONSOLIDATED REVENUE

Consolidated revenue increased by 28.1% to MYR61.0 million (US$17.4 million) from MYR47.6 million in the prior year period. Consolidated revenue increased primarily due to the growth of MOLPoints, MOLPay and MMOG.asia.

  • MOLPoints' segment revenue increased by 34.9% to MYR39.8 million (US$11.4 million) from MYR29.5 million in the prior year period primarily due to increased MOLPoints' volumes in Thailand and Brazil as well as an increase in revenue share in Malaysia and revenue contribution from the PayByMe mobile carrier billing platform in which we acquired a 51% equity interest in September 2014.
  • MOLReloads' segment revenue increased by 5.5% to MYR9.3 million (US$2.6 million) from MYR8.8 million in the prior year period due to increased volume in Malaysia and the Philippines.
  • MOLPay's segment revenue increased by 3.2% to MYR3.2 million (US$0.9 million) from MYR3.1 million in the prior year period. MOLPay's segment revenue derived from our subsidiary in Vietnam was reported on a net basis during the fourth quarter of 2014 such that fees payable to merchants were netted out of revenue and not included in direct cost and other ancillary expenses. Such segment revenues were reported on a gross basis for the fourth quarter of 2013, such that fees payable to merchants were not netted out of revenues but were included in direct cost and other ancillary expenses. MOLPay's segment net revenue for future periods will be reported on a net basis.

As such, the small percentage increase of MOLPay's segment revenue was a result of the gross to net conversion.

On a net revenue to net revenue basis, MOLPay's segment revenue grew 126% compared to the third quarter of 2013. This was supported by 168% growth in payment volumes from MYR48 million in the third quarter of 2014 to MYR127 million in the fourth quarter of 2014.

  • MMOG.asia's segment revenue increased by 42.4% to MYR8.2 million (US$2.4 million) from MYR5.8 million in the prior year period primarily due to revenues from selling the licensing rights of the game, Stallion Race, in the Middle East and Brazil markets. The licensing agreement was initially signed in the third quarter of 2014.

DIRECT COST AND OTHER ANCILLARY EXPENSES

Direct cost and other ancillary expenses increased by 58.4% to MYR30.9 million (US$8.8 million) from MYR19.5 million in the prior year period.

  • MOLPoints' segment direct cost and other ancillary expenses increased by 77.8% to MYR24.9 million (US$7.1 million) from MYR14.0 million in the prior year period due to strong volume growth of 25.4%, higher channel costs in Thailand, and direct costs and other ancillary expenses of the PayByMe carrier billing platform in which we acquired a 51% equity interest in September 2014.
  • MOLReloads' segment direct cost and other ancillary expenses increased by 40.1% to MYR4.3 million (US$1.2 million) from MYR3.1 million in the prior year period due to increased volume in Malaysia and the Philippines and higher channel costs in Malaysia.
  • MOLPay's segment direct cost and other ancillary expenses decreased by 34.2% to MYR1.4 million (US$0.4 million) from MYR2.2 million in the prior year period. MOLPay's segment direct costs and other ancillary expenses derived from our subsidiary in Vietnam was reported on a net basis during the fourth quarter of 2014 such that fees payable to merchants were netted out of revenue and not included in direct cost and other ancillary expenses. Such segment direct costs and other ancillary expenses were reported on a gross basis for the fourth quarter of 2013, such that fees payable to merchants were not netted out of revenues but were included in direct cost and other ancillary expenses. MOLPay's segment direct costs and other ancillary expenses for future periods will be reported on a net basis.

As such, the increase of MOLPay's segment direct costs and other ancillary expenses was a result of the gross to net conversion. On a net revenue basis, MOLPay's segment direct costs and other ancillary expenses grew 187.3% compared to the third quarter of 2013.

  • MMOG.asia's segment direct cost and other ancillary expenses decreased by 3.7% to MYR0.18million (US$0.05 million) from MYR0.19 million in the prior year period due to a decrease in segment underlying volumes. The revenue from the sale of licensing rights of Stallion Race does not attract any channel costs.

GROSS PROFIT

Gross profit increased by 7.0% to MYR30.1 million (US$8.6 million) from MYR28.1 million in the prior year period. The increase was driven by the increase in gross profit in MOLPay and MMOG.asia, partially offset by MOLPoints' and MOLReloads' experiencing decreases in revenue share or higher channel costs. Gross margin was 49.3%, as compared to 59.0% in the prior year period. This was primarily due to mix of revenue segments, with the growing MOLPay business commanding a lower gross margin and the results of PayByMe, which also generally commands a lower gross margin relative to the other components of MOLPoints.

  • MOLPoints' segment gross profit decreased by 3.8% to MYR14.9 million (US$4.3 million) from MYR15.5 million in the prior year period due to higher channel costs and lower revenue sharing especially in Thailand.
  • MOLReloads' segment gross profit decreased by 13.1% to MYR5.0 million (US$1.4 million) from MYR5.7 million in the prior year period due to lower net revenue share partially offset by increased volume.
  • MOLPay's segment gross profit increased by 93.0% to MYR1.8 million (US$0.5 million) from MYR0.9 million in the prior year period due to an increase in overall volume, and lower channel costs.
  • MMOG.asia's segment gross profit increased by 43.9% to MYR8.1 million (US$2.3 million) from MYR5.6 million in the prior year period primarily due to revenues from licensing the game Stallion Race, and also the factors underlying reduced costs.

OPERATING INCOME/(LOSS) AND EXPENSES

Total operating expenses increased by 198.3% to MYR66.2 million (US$18.9 million) from MYR22.2 million in the prior year period. The increase in operating expenses were primarily due to one-off costs including IPO expenses, share-based compensation, non-recurring accounting costs related to our results for the third quarter of 2013 and acquisition-related costs, altogether totaling MYR34.5 million. The Company also incurred additional annual expenses of being a publicly listed company of MYR2.4 million.

Loss from operations was MYR36.1 million (US$10.3 million), was primarily due to several one-time expenses and new annual cost associated with becoming a publicly listed company as compared to a profit from operations of MYR5.9 million in the prior year period.

ADJUSTED EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA decreased by 22.3% to MYR10.2 million (US$2.9 million) from MYR13.1 million in the prior year period after adding back the one-time expenses incurred during the quarter.

OTHER INCOME

Other income increased to MYR1.4 million (US$0.4 million) from a net other income of MYR0.7 million in the prior year period.

PROFIT/(LOSS) FOR THE PERIOD

Loss attributable to MOL Global Inc. shareholders was MYR35.2 million (US$10.1 million), as compared to a profit attributable to MOL Global Inc. shareholders of MYR0.6 million in the prior year period. The Company incurred a loss in the period due to one-off costs including IPO expenses, share-based compensation, non-recurring accounting costs relating to our results for the third quarter of 2013 and acquisition-related costs The Company also incurred annual expenses of being a publicly listed company, as mentioned above. Diluted loss per ADS attributable to MOL Global Inc. shareholders was MYR0.59 (US$0.17), as compared to diluted earnings per ADS attributable to MOL Global Inc. shareholders of MYR0.01 in the prior year period.

Unless otherwise noted, all translations from Ringgit to U.S. dollars, in this press release, were made at a rate of MYR3.495 to US$1.00, the noon buying rate in effect on December 31, 2014 in the City of New York for cable transfers in Ringgit per U.S. dollar as certified for customs purposes by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

About Non-IFRS Financial Measures

To supplement our consolidated financial results presented in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"), we present adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-IFRS financial measure, and related ratios. You should not consider adjusted EBITDA as a substitute for or superior to net profit prepared in accordance with IFRS. Furthermore, because adjusted EBITDA is not determined in accordance with IFRS, it is susceptible to varying calculations and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures presented by other companies. We encourage investors and others to review our financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

We present adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental performance measure because we believe that it facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period and company to company by backing out potential differences caused by the age and book depreciation of fixed assets (affecting relative depreciation and amortization expenses), changes in foreign exchange rates that impact financial assets and liabilities denominated in currencies other than our functional currency (affecting unrealized gain/(loss) on foreign exchange and realized gain/(loss) on foreign exchange), variations in capital structures (affecting interest income and interest expenses), share of results of operation of associates and tax positions (affecting income tax expenses) (such as the impact on periods or companies of changes in effective tax rates), and various non-recurring charges. In addition, adjusted EBITDA excludes the non-cash impact of changes in the fair value of derivative, that, in each case, we do not believe reflect the underlying performance of our business. Some limitations of adjusted EBITDA are that: (i) adjusted EBITDA does not reflect income tax payments that may represent a reduction in cash available to us; (ii) adjusted EBITDA does not include other income, other expense and foreign exchange gains and losses; and (iii) adjusted EBITDA excludes depreciation and amortization and although these are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future.

The following table reconciles adjusted EBITDA to profit for the period for the three months ended December 31, 2013 and 2014:
