One Horizon Announces Financial Results for the Second Quarter and Six Month Period Ended June 30, 2016




LIMERICK, IRELAND — (Marketwired) — 08/09/16 — (NASDAQ: OHGI), a leading carrier-grade VoIP solution for mobile providers and smartphones, today announced its financial results for the second quarter and six month period ended June 30, 2016.

Brian Collins, CEO of One Horizon Group, stated, “We are not only proud of our ability to increase revenue year-over-year during the second quarter and first six months of 2016, but also in our ability to invest in ourselves. Our disruptive, proprietary VoIP technology continues to evolve with unique offerings such as global data-roaming SIM cards, cashless payment offerings, and prepaid call and messaging bundles with automatic renewals. We are having active discussions with leading carriers in Latin America, Africa and Asia as well as expanding our service offerings to Smart Communications who have licensed our technology. Coupled with the growth we are experiencing in China through Aishuo, which now has over 37 million downloads, we are well positioned for continued subscriber and financial growth.”

Business-to-consumer (–B2C–) mobile VoIP application in China, , has surpassed 37 million subscriber downloads. Aishuo allows consumers to talk and SMS application-to-application for free and call or text a landline or mobile phone, home or abroad, for a nominal cost. Because Aishuo consumes 10x less mobile data and 8x less battery life than any other mobile VoIP technology available today, the voice quality is better as compared to other OTT solutions.

Additionally, Aishuo has teamed up with significant amount of global data-roaming SIM cards to offer consumers a direct, inside-Aishuo-app purchase of a SIM card that is delivered to your door before you leave on vacation. Simple to use, easy to pay for, and greatly reduces customers– mobile communication charges when traveling. We believe this is a unique and powerful combination for the Chinese travelers.

One Horizon has sold its second software license for its data roaming VoIP solution, branded Marino All Abroad, specifically targeting seafarers with a higher estimated ARPU due to the longevity of their travels. The service is offered through Smart Communications, the Philippines– leading wireless service provider with an estimated 55 million prepaid subscribers.

Being offered first through Smart Communications, the Company has released a new cashless payment service for mobile operators to allow users to purchase call credit using their debt or credit card.

One Horizon has released new software that allows app users to purchase packages of minutes and messages for a period and automatically renew their package subscription when it expires.

The increase was primarily due to the growth in the business in the B2C business in China and the B2B business in the rest of Asia. Management believes further growth in both sectors of revenue and particularly the B2B sector with the launch of “Roam Like Home” software for Telecommunication companies will occur.

Cost of revenue excluding amortization of software development costs, was approximately $49,000 or 13.3% of sales for the three months ended June 30, 2016, compared to cost of revenue of $47,000 or 43.5% of sales for the three months ended June 30, 2015.
