Total revenues decreased 7.6% and subscription revenue decreased 2.4% for the second quarter of 2015 relative to the comparable period in 2014, however, total revenues slightly increased by approximately $2.0 thousand as compared to the first quarter of 2015;

Cash and cash equivalents totaled approximately $1.9 million as of June 30, 2015, representing an increase of approximately $0.8 million from December 31, 2014;

Generated positive Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $73.0 thousand, an improvement of approximately $11.0 thousand relative to the comparable period in 2014, and an improvement of approximately $685.0 thousand compared to the first quarter of 2015;

Active subscriber count was 98.0 thousand as of June 30, 2015 which was relatively flat compared to the same period in 2014; and

Increased user activity on The Grade, our new mobile dating application, reaching a cumulative usage milestone of more than 20.0 million swipes, as compared to cumulative usage of more than 8.0 million swipes as of March 31, 2015.

Growth and New Initiatives

In the second quarter of 2015 we achieved important milestones in growth and new initiatives, including:

Board of Directors – Appointed an independent director to our Board of Directors;

Reengaged Users – Reactivated 1.2 million users from the AYI database via targeted email campaigns; and

The Grade User Activity – As of June 30, 2015, cumulative usage of The Grade mobile application exceeded 20 million swipes.

SNAP–s Chief Executive Officer, Clifford Lerner, said, “Q2 was a significant quarter for SNAP, during which we achieved several milestones, with the highlight being the appointment of our first independent director, Dr. Steven Fox, to our Board of Directors. We continue to seek two other independent board members to help us achieve our strategic objective to build a portfolio of mobile and Internet dating applications and brands. In addition, SNAP has developed a valuable asset in its database of over 30.0 million users. SNAP–s campaign in the second quarter to reactivate inactive users by presenting AYI and third party offers was successful, engaging approximately 1.2 million users that had formerly been inactive. SNAP–s infrastructure is highly scalable and our team is capable of supporting significant future growth and profitability as we seek to grow our portfolio.”

Mr. Lerner continued, “The Grade, our unique female-friendly dating app and first addition to our portfolio, saw record usage in Q2, highlighted by an 81% increase in swipes in the second quarter of 2015 as compared to the first quarter of 2015, as seen in the chart below. Furthermore, The Grade also appeared in the nationally televised reality show Leah Remini: It–s All Relative in the July 22nd episode –Leah and Chelsea Handler–s Dating Tips–, in which The Grade is used by a cast member to help find a date. We–re excited to see The Grade receive a high level of exposure to a national audience.”

SNAP–s Chief Operating Officer, Alex Harrington, said, “Looking at our business overall, SNAP faced revenue headwinds in the second quarter of 2015 relative to the second quarter of 2014. This was primarily due to unfavorable international exchange rates and the termination of a large, exclusive advertising contract in 2014 in favor of more flexible, non-exclusive advertising relationships in 2015. Relative to the first quarter of 2015, revenues increased slightly as our smaller advertising relationships continue to grow. AYI has delivered stable results, with subscription revenues decreasing nominally and active subscribers flat compared to the same period last year. In the near future, we expect that the focus for AYI will be on cash efficiency, rather than growth to support other investment initiatives in our portfolio.”

Liquidity and Cash Flow

Cash Balance – We ended the second quarter of 2015 with approximately $1.9 million of cash and cash equivalents on our balance sheet; and

Reduction in Cash Used in Operating Activities: We reduced our consumption of cash from operating activities from nearly $1.1 million in the first quarter of 2015 to approximately $0.4 million in the second quarter of 2015.

Mr. Harrington added, “We were pleased to reduce expenses and cash burn during the second quarter of 2015 relative to the first quarter of 2015, in which we sustained a number of one-time, non-recurring items such as a repayment of an advance under an advertising agreement, expenses associated with the relocation of our corporate headquarters and a legal settlement and related legal fees. With our current liquidity position on a solid footing, we continue to manage cash conservatively and expect still more cash-efficiency in operations going forward, while continuing to explore new avenues for growth.”

In evaluating these statements, you should carefully consider these risks and uncertainties and those described under the headings “Management–s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” and “Risk Factors” in the Company–s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and other Securities and Exchange Commission filings.

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, plus non-cash stock-based compensation and the non-cash change in fair value of derivative liabilities. The Company has provided in this release certain non-GAAP financial information including bookings and Adjusted EBITDA to supplement the condensed consolidated financial statements, which are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”). Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures 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 non-GAAP financial measures in assessing our performance and when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures 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; and (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 this non-GAAP financial information 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.
