WAYNE, Pa., Nov. 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ICTV Brands, Inc. (OTCQX:ICTV), (CSE:ITV), a digitally focused direct response marketing and international branding company focused on the health, wellness and beauty sector, today reported financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2017.

Third Quarter 2017 Highlights:

  • Delivered revenue of approximately $7.56 million, up 80% compared to the prior year quarter.
  • Achieved positive Adjusted EBITDA of $256,000, up 299% compared to prior year quarter.
  • Total assets increased to approximately $17.2 million from approximately $4.5 million at December 31, 2016, which includes approximately $7.5 million in inventory and approximately $960,000 in cash and equivalents.

Management Commentary:
Richard Ransom, President, stated, “During the third quarter ICTV’s two flagship brands were placed in several new brick and mortar retail stores, including Shopper’s Drug Mart and expansion to over 300 additional Bed Bath & Beyond locations. This positions ICTV to maximize our sales during the prime retail season between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. In addition to retail initiatives in North America, our team has been focused on expanding the international distribution platform in both South America and Asia. We believe that the work our team has done over the last several months positions ICTV well for substantial growth in 2018 and the year to come.”

Reported Financial Results:
Third Quarter 2017 Compared to Third Quarter 2016:
Revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2017 were approximately $7.56 million, compared to approximately $4.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016. For the three months ended September 30, 2017, we generated approximately $4.5 million in gross profit, compared to approximately $3.0 million during the three months ended September 30, 2016 as a result of the addition of the no!no!TM, KyrobakTM and Cleartouch TM products acquired in January 2017. Gross profit margin was 60% in the third quarter 2017 compared to 72% in the prior year quarter. Total operating expenses increased to approximately $6.6 million from approximately $3.3 million during the third quarter of 2016, primarily related to the acquisition of the no!no! brand and other assets from PhotoMedex. The largest factor is an increase in internet marketing expenditures. Internet marketing expenses increased to approximately $1.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017 from approximately $299,000 during the three months ended September 30, 2016. Media expenditures were approximately $1.3 million and $1.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively. In addition, payroll expenses increased to $565,000 during the three months ended September 30, 2017 from $367,000 during the three months ended September 30, 2016, as a result of additional employees from the PhotoMedex acquisition.

Net loss for the third quarter was approximately $387,000, compared to a net loss of approximately $262,000 in the prior year quarter. The resulting EPS is ($0.01), as compared to ($0.01) in the comparable quarter a year earlier. Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (Adjusted EBITDA) was approximately $256,000 as compared to approximately ($128,000).

Nine Months Ended September 30, 2017 Compared to Nine Months Ended September 30, 2016
Revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 were $23.2 million, increasing from $12.5 million in the prior year period as a result of the addition of the no!no!TM, KyrobakTM and Cleartouch TM products acquired in January 2017. For the nine months ended September 30, 2017, we generated $15.2 million in gross margin, compared to approximately $8.8 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2016 as a result of the addition of the no!no!TM, KyrobakTM and Cleartouch TM products acquired in January 2017. Gross margin percentage was approximately 65% and 70% for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016. Total operating expenses increased to approximately $19.0 million from approximately $9.7 million during the third quarter of 2016. This increase in operating expenses relates primarily to the PhotoMedex acquisition. The biggest increase was internet marketing expenditures. Internet marketing expenses increased to approximately $3.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 from approximately $899,000 during the nine months ended September 30, 2016. Media expenditures was approximately $4.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 compared to $4.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016. In addition, payroll expenses increased to $2.0 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2017 from $1.1 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2016, as a result of additional employees from the PhotoMedex acquisition. Net loss was ($2.2 million), compared to ($951,000). EPS was ($0.04), as compared to ($0.03), and Adjusted EBITDA was approximately ($415,000) as compared to approximately ($458,000).
