Snap Interactive Reports Results for the Quarter Ended June 30, 2016




NEW YORK, NY — (Marketwired) — 08/11/16 — Snap Interactive, Inc. (“SNAP,” the “Company,” “we,” “our” or “us”) (OTCQB: STVI), a leading online dating provider, today announced financial and operational results for the quarter ended June 30, 2016.

Highlights:

Total revenue of $2.6 million for the second quarter of 2016 decreased slightly by $63 thousand compared to the first quarter of 2016;

Total revenues decreased 18.0% for the second quarter of 2016 relative to the comparable period in 2015, primarily driven by a decrease in the number of active subscribers, which we believe is the result of a decrease in FirstMet advertising expense of 15.4%;

Advertising revenue increased by $42 thousand, or 37.0%, for the second quarter of 2016 when compared with the same period in 2015;

Total expenses were reduced by $509 thousand in the second quarter of 2016 as compared to the same period in 2015, a 15% decrease; and

Net cash used in operating activities was approximately $239 thousand for the three months ended June 30, 2016, representing a reduction of $155 thousand as compared to the same period in 2015.

Growth and New Initiatives

In the second quarter of 2016 we achieved important milestones in growth and new initiatives, including:

New Product Kickoff – Initiated development of a new product targeting users over 50 years of age;

Foreign Language Translation – Translated all or portions of the FirstMet service into nine additional languages to test opportunities in international markets; and

Reengaged Users – Reactivated approximately 647 thousand users from the AYI database via targeted email campaigns.

SNAP–s Chief Executive Officer, Alex Harrington, said, “In the second quarter of 2016 we focused on forward-looking strategic initiatives. Most prominently, we kicked-off development on a new product in the Snap portfolio, which we expect to launch commercially in the fourth quarter. This is the cornerstone of our internal growth strategy building upon Snap–s large user database. By cross selling users across our product array, we expect to increase the value we derive from each user acquired. We are also excited to announce that the new product will focus on users 50 years and older, which is an age group that has shown one of the fastest adoption rates of dating products in recent years. This niche is also a good fit for Snap–s portfolio since FirstMet has long targeted users 35 and older, and therefore users over 50 represent a significant portion of our database.”

Mr. Harrington continued, “We have made significant progress on several other initiatives as well. Our foreign language translation efforts have opened up testing in large emerging markets like Brazil and Turkey, and we have also achieved remarkable user adoption in smaller markets such as Greece. Email winback programs continue to build on the momentum that began with the rebranding, with FirstMet successfully reengaging approximately 647 thousand inactive users, up 4.2% from the first quarter of 2016. Mobile usage of FirstMet also continued to represent more than 50% of activity across all platforms, which we believe to be a direct result of the continued focus on mobile product enhancements and emphasis on mobile advertising in our marketing budget.”

Liquidity and Cash Flow

Cash Balance: We ended the second quarter of 2016 with approximately $1.6 million of cash and cash equivalents on our balance sheet;

Expense Reductions: Total expenses were reduced by $0.5 million in the second quarter of 2016 as compared to the same period in 2015, a 15% decrease; and

Cash Used in Operating Activities: Net cash used in operating activities was $239 thousand for the three months ended June 30, 2016, representing a reduction of $155 thousand as compared to the same period in 2015.

Mr. Harrington concluded, “Capital efficiency and cost controls continue to be a key focus, and we were pleased to realize a 15% quarterly expense reduction year-over-year. The first half of the year is typically cash and expense intensive, and though the Company consumed $239 thousand of cash from operating activities in the second quarter of 2016, this was an improvement of $155 thousand over the comparable period in 2015. On July 18, 2016, we entered into a term note allowing us to borrow up to $250,000 and borrowed $200,000 thereunder, strengthening our cash and liquidity position. A high priority now is seeking a financial alternative or a strategic business combination to refinance or retire the Company–s convertible debt. However, with approximately $1.6 million of cash resources, we believe the Company has sufficient funds to pursue our previously announced new product launch and other growth initiatives in 2016.”

The accompanying notes are an integral part of these condensed consolidated financial statements

The Company has provided in this release certain non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted EBITDA, and other key metrics, including bookings, to supplement the condensed consolidated financial statements, which are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”). The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net loss adjusted to exclude interest income (expense), net, depreciation and amortization expense, gain (loss) on change in fair value of derivative liabilities, loss on disposal of fixed assets and stock-based compensation expense. The Company calculates bookings as subscription revenue recognized during the period plus the change in deferred subscription revenue recognized during the period.

Management uses these financial metrics internally in analyzing the Company–s financial results to assess operational performance and to determine the Company–s future capital requirements. The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these financial metrics in assessing our performance and when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. The Company believes these financial metrics are useful to investors and others to understand and evaluate the Company–s operating results and it allows for a more meaningful comparison between the Company–s performance and that of competitors.

Some limitations of bookings and Adjusted EBITDA as financial measures include that:

Bookings does not reflect that we recognize subscription revenue from subscription fees over the length of the subscription term and subscription revenue from micro-transactions over a two-month period;

Adjusted EBITDA does not (i) reflect cash capital expenditure requirements for assets underlying depreciation and amortization expense that may need to be replaced or for new capital expenditures; (ii) the Company–s working capital requirements; (iii) consider the potentially dilutive impact of stock-based compensation; (iv) reflect interest expense or interest payments on our outstanding indebtedness; or (v) reflect the change in fair value of warrants; and

Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate bookings or Adjusted EBITDA differently or choose not to calculate bookings or Adjusted EBITDA at all, which reduces their usefulness as comparative measures.

Because of these limitations, you should consider these financial metrics along with other financial performance measures, including total revenues, subscription revenue, deferred revenue, net income (loss), cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, net cash used in operating activities and our financial results presented in accordance with GAAP.
