Innodata Reports Second Quarter 2014 Results

July 30, 2014

NEW YORK - July 30, 2014 - INNODATA INC. (NASDAQ: INOD) today reported results for the second quarter and the six months ended June 30, 2014. * Total revenue was $14.3 million in the second quarter of 2014, an approximately 2% sequential increase from $14.1 million in the first quarter of 2014. Total revenue was $16.2 million in the second quarter of 2013. * In the second quarter of 2014 we incurred a net loss of $0.7 million, or ($0.03) per diluted share, compared to net earnings of $0.2 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2014. Net loss in the second quarter of 2013 was $0.1 million, or less than ($0.01) per diluted share. * For the first six months in 2014, total revenue was $28.4 million, down 14% from $33.1 million in the first six months of 2013. Net loss was $0.5 million, or ($0.02) per diluted share in the first six months of 2014, compared with net earnings of $0.2 million, or $0.01 per diluted share for the same period in 2013. * Cash, cash equivalents and investments were $28.1 million at June 30, 2014 compared to $24.8 million at December 31, 2013. Jack Abuhoff, Chairman and CEO, said, "Although our revenue in the second quarter of 2014 increased to $14.3 million from $14.1 million in the first quarter of 2014, we incurred a pre-tax loss of $845,000 in the second quarter of 2014 compared to a pre-tax loss of $5,000 in the first quarter of 2014. This change in pre-tax loss was primarily on account of wage increases and certain one-time expenses. Comparing the first half of 2014 to the first half of 2013, our revenue declined by $4.7 million, principally due to lower volumes from a large e-book project. Despite this revenue decrease, we narrowed our pre-tax loss by $1 million through cost reductions and process improvements." Abuhoff continued, "On the strategic front, there have been a number of developments, including the following: * We began delivering data under one of the large Synodex contracts we announced last quarter when the client obtained two of several required third-party consents. We expect that the client will also receive the other necessary consents. We have not yet begun delivering data under the other large Synodex contract announced last quarter because of client-side delays. * We anticipate a September launch of our Synodex 3.0 solution which incorporates comments from 16 client prospects who had looked at mockups of the Synodex 3.0 solution. Based on the enthusiastic reception we have received to the mockups, we are optimistic that Synodex 3.0 will enable us to accelerate client bookings. * As part of our ongoing cost management efforts, in the second quarter we reduced operating costs across the business by an annualized $1.5 million, with a related severance cost of approximately $300,000 of which $200,000 will be recognized in the third quarter.  We will see the benefits of this cost reduction in Q3. * In the first quarter we signed a letter of intent with a large European- based information company that selected us to provide end-to-end content creation and management services for one of its divisions. We have now signed a letter of intent with a second division of this company. The letters of intent anticipate signing a series of statements of work which taken together could potentially yield approximately $10 million of recurring revenue per year once we are fully ramped up (which we expect to be in the third operating year). * The MediaMiser acquisition we announced yesterday fits squarely within our strategy to grow our portfolio of recurring and predictable revenue. MediaMiser typically signs multi-year subscription agreements with its clients and has enjoyed a customer retention rate of over 90%. Moreover, it has experienced steady growth over the last 12 consecutive quarters, at a compounded annual growth rate of 25%." For the third quarter, the Company is forecasting revenue to be in the range of $15 million to $16 million.
