Lenco Mobile Inc. Reports Results for Third Quarter 2011

2011-11-07 10:49 ET - News Release


SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -- (Business Wire)

Lenco Mobile Inc. (Pink Sheets:LNCM) today announced results for the quarter ended September 30, 2011.

Revenue reached $2.8 million in the third quarter of 2011. This represents a 359% increase year over year, compared to revenues of $0.6 million in the third quarter of 2010, and a 32% increase over second quarter 2011 revenues of $2.1 million.

Commenting on the results, Michael Levinsohn, CEO and President of Lenco Mobile Inc., said, “We are pleased with the revenue achievement of our mobile services and solutions segment. Significantly, the primary driver of this growth has been sales of our mobile statement solution in South Africa, which is sold on a recurring revenue model and has been well-received by clients in the financial services, retail and wireless carrier sectors. Recurring revenues from retainer relationships with wireless carriers and brand owners using our mobile statement solution represented approximately 80% of the total revenues from our South African subsidiary in both the second and third quarter of 2011.”

“In the third quarter of 2011, we reached another milestone by billing our first revenues in Singapore serving a significant regional Wireless Carrier. While the revenues generated in Singapore were not a material portion of revenues for the period, they demonstrate the viability and technological advantages offered by the use of our rich media, messaging platform and messaging service offerings. We expect to expand our offering to brand clients in Singapore and are currently testing connectivity with another major carrier in the Asia Pacific region,” Levinsohn added.

Lenco’s mobile services and solutions business generated income from operations, of $0.7 million in the third quarter of 2011, before depreciation, amortization, stock compensation expenses and an impairment loss, compared to income from operations of $0.1 million for the third quarter of 2010, before depreciation, amortization, stock compensation expenses and impairment losses.

Lenco Mobile Inc.’s loss from operations before depreciation, amortization, stock compensation expense and impairment loss was $0.6 million in the third quarter of 2011 representing a 45% decrease, compared to the loss in the third quarter 2010 of $1.0 million. The improvement in operating results was primarily driven by higher sales in third quarter 2011 compared to third quarter 2010, tempered by increased general and administrative expenses. The Company had significant one-time costs related to professional fees stemming from both the planned acquisition of iLoop Mobile, Inc., announced today in a separate release, and the planned disposition of the business comprising its broadcast media segment. Lenco expects that general and administrative expenses will diminish in conjunction with the rationalization of expenses in the iLoop merger as well as the discontinuance of the broadcast media segment.

Net loss for the third quarter was a $32.3 million. $29.9 million of the loss was related to one-time charges from discontinued operations, comprising the broadcast media segment, which the Company is divesting.

At September 30, 2011 the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $0.6 million and a working capital deficit of $0.2 million. Net cash used in operations for the nine month period ended September 30, 2011 was $6.4 million. “At this time we do not anticipate that our cash, cash equivalents and short-term investment balances and any cash generated from operations and borrowings will be sufficient to meet our cash requirements. We intend to seek additional capital, through a private sale of equity or debt securities, to provide sufficient working capital to fund our planned acquisition of iLoop and to continue growing our operations,” said Levinsohn
