Nearly 2 billion point-of-sale transactions have been ingested into Mobivity’s database to help the Company’s customers drive smarter and more personalized marketing messages to consumers.

Dennis Becker, Mobivity Chairman and CEO, commented, “Our progress in the second quarter of 2017 has demonstrated good momentum across all aspects of the business. In a very short period of time, our new sales and marketing team has expanded our opportunity pipeline, increased our selling price across all products and services, and shortened sales cycles. Additionally, increasing term commitments and favorable payment terms from key customers continues to strengthen our cash flow outlook. We believe these are all ingredients to a business model that has the potential to scale beyond a $100 million annual run rate and we are laser focused on continuing to execute toward that goal.”

Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results:

Revenue for Q2 2017 was $2,239,000, representing an increase of 8% from $2,075,000 in Q2 2016. The increase in revenue was primarily attributable to an increase in SmartMessenger revenue. Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2017 were $4,352,000, an increase of $432,000, or 11%, compared to the same period in 2016.

Gross margin decreased to 73% in Q2 2017 compared to 76% in Q2 2016. Operating expenses (excluding goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges) for Q2 2017 were $2,887,000 compared to $2,534,000 in Q2 2016. The increase in operating expenses was due to an increase in engineering, research & development personnel related costs as compared to Q2 2016 to support the Company’s growth. Operating loss for the quarter was $(1,248,000) compared to $(964,000) in the corresponding period in the prior year. Comprehensive loss for Q2 2017 was $(1,290,000), or $(0.04) per diluted share, compared to $(979,000), or $(0.03) per diluted share in Q2 2016.

Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Loss, a non-GAAP metric (see note on non-GAAP Measurements) was $(772,000) for Q2 2017 compared to $(427,000) in Q2 2016.

Non-GAAP Measurements

This press release includes certain financial information which constitutes "non-GAAP financial measures" as defined by the SEC. A full reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures to GAAP can be found in the tables of today's press release. Non-GAAP adjusted net income is supplemental to results presented under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. These non-GAAP measures are used by management to facilitate period-to-period comparisons and analysis of Mobivity's operating performance and liquidity. Management believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors in trending, analyzing and benchmarking the performance and value of Mobivity's business. These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, other similar measures reported in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted Earnings per Share, or EPS, is net loss before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, and other non-cash operating income and expenses. Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted EPS are presented exclusively as a supplemental disclosure because management believes that it is widely used to measure the performance, and as a basis for valuation, of Software as a Service (SaaS) and other tech companies. Management uses Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted EPS as measures of the operating performance of its segments and to compare the operating performance of its operations with those of its competitors. The Company also presents Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted EPS because it is used by some investors as a way to measure a company’s ability to incur and service debt, make capital expenditures and meet working capital requirements. Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted EPS should not be considered as an alternative to net loss as an indicator of the Company’s performance, as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity, or as an alternative to any other measure determined in accordance with GAAP. Unlike net income/(loss) and earnings per share, Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted EPS does not include depreciation or interest expense and, therefore, does not reflect current or future capital expenditures or the cost of capital. The Company compensates for these limitations by using Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted EPS as only one of several comparative tools, together with GAAP measurements, to assist in the evaluation of operating performance. Such GAAP measurements include operating income, net income/(loss), cash flows from operations and cash flow data. The Company has significant uses of cash flows, including capital expenditures, taxes and other non-recurring charges, which are not reflected in Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted EPS. The Company’s calculation of Adjusted Net Loss may be different from the calculation methods used by other companies and, therefore, comparability may be limited.
