NTN Buzztime, Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2014 Results

CARLSBAD, Calif., August 13, 2014 — NTN Buzztime, Inc. (NYSE MKT: NTN) today announced results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014.

“We are pleased to report that during the second quarter, we continued to roll-out BEOND, having installed the BEOND platform in 243 additional locations putting us at 676 BEOND installations as of June 30, 2014, 419 of which are Buffalo Wild Wings.  In five of these locations, we continue to test premium entertainment options that, based on the encouraging results we’re seeing, represents a significant opportunity to generate consumer revenue once available to all BEOND locations,” said Buzztime CEO, Jeffrey Berg.  “Additionally, the organizational changes we recently announced will allow us to deliver new entertainment experiences to support our mission to entertain consumers in ways that create long-term value for our merchants,” continued Mr. Berg.

 

Results for the Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2014

Revenues for the second quarter of 2014 grew 24% year over year to $6.9 million compared to $5.5 million for the same period in 2013.  Direct costs increased to $2.8 million for the second quarter of 2014 from $1.5 million for the same period of 2013 due in part to additional equipment related costs incurred as we deploy the BEOND platform.

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased $0.6 million, or 16%, to $4.6 million for the second quarter of 2014 from $4.0 million for the same period in 2013.

Impairment of capitalized software was $0.6 million for the second quarter of 2014 compared to $27,000 for the same period in 2013.

Net loss for the second quarter of 2014 was $1.3 million, or $0.02 per share, compared to net loss of $0.1 million or $0.00 per share in the same period a year ago. Excluding the non-recurring impairment charge of capitalized software, our net loss would have been $0.7 million or $0.01 per share.

As of June 30, 2014, the Company had $11.2 million in cash and cash equivalents compared to $5.5 million as of December 31, 2013.

The Company ended the second quarter of 2014 with 3,103 subscribing venues, compared to 3,352 as of June 30, 2013.
