One Horizon Group Announces First Quarter 2014 Results

BAAR, SWITZERLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 05/22/14 -- One Horizon Group, Inc. (OTCQB: OHGI) ("One Horizon" or the "Company"), which develops and licenses bandwidth efficient mobile voice over Internet Protocol ("VoIP") platform for telecommunication company-supported smart phones, today announced financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2014.

One Horizon developed a proprietary VoIP platform ("Horizon Platform") that enables wireless carriers around the world to provide customized and optimized voice and data services over any mobile, fixed and satellite network through an easy to install mobile app. One Horizon's SmartPacket™ technology underlying the Horizon Platform enables greater bandwidth efficiency by reducing IP overhead and optimizing packet flow, delivery and playback. One Horizon targets emerging markets with high population densities, high penetration of mobile phones, congested mobile networks, and high growth in smartphone adoption. Mobile operators pay an annual software licensing fee to the Company for each active subscriber using the white-label VoIP service powered by the Horizon Platform. The Company continues to expand its revenue sources to mobile advertising and mobile payments by introducing new value-added services and features.

Highlights:

  • Q1 2014 revenues were $1.2 million vs. $1.9 million in Q1 2013
  • Expanded software development team in Ireland and China
  • Completed development of the Horizon billing system
  • Chongqing Leixin Network Technology ("Leixin") JV commenced initial infrastructure rollout in five cities in China

"Our software is installed on our telecom partners systems and we are ready to begin monetizing our collective customer base," began Brian Collins, Founder and CTO of One Horizon. "After years of hard work and customized development of our VoIP software on complex telco networks, we are now poised to launch our applications on a widespread basis with our customers and their subscribers. Over-the-Top ("OTT") applications are in the spotlight now and while many Asian telcos have already taken steps to combat them, the US and Europe are following suit. Our technology is a perfect fit to this developing opportunity as telcos take more control of their subscribers by providing carrier-branded, high-quality VoIP and messaging services. We expect 2014 to be a break out year for One Horizon and we are excited about the prospects in our pipeline."

Financial Results for the Period Ended March 31, 2014

Revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2014 were approximately $1.2 million. Overall contract value for contracts signed from inception through March 31, 2014 was $62.4 million, of which only $8.6 million was recognized through March 31, 2014. Contracts with Tier 1 entities typically require agreed-upon fixed payments over periods extending beyond one year whereas contracts with Tier 2 entities have long-term variable payment terms based on customer usage. One Horizon Group recognizes income when the installments on the contracts are due to and invoiced by the Company.

Cost of goods sold and operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2014 were $0.5 million and $1.2 million. Excluding non-cash depreciation and amortization and stock-based compensation expenses, operating income was $0.2 million for the first quarter of 2014.

The Company recorded a net loss of $0.4 million and net loss per share of $0.02 for the three months ended March 31, 2014. The weighted average shares outstanding increased from 31.2 million during the three months ended March 31, 2013 to 32.9 million during the same period in 2014 due to the private placement completed on February 18, 2014.

Financial Condition

The Company had $21.8 million of assets and $16.3 million shareholders' equity at March 31, 2014. Cash outflows from operations were $0.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014.

Business Updates

One Horizon's customer in the Philippines, SMART is currently rolling out its LinkPlus™, "SMART"-branded VoIP service to millions of ex-pat Filipinos living and working throughout Asia. LinkPlus™ is an app that can be downloaded onto any smartphone and used over any data or WiFi network to connect with any SMART subscriber or SMART's LinkPlus™ app user.

The Company continues to expand its software development team, adding a new senior software development at its recently opened R&D office in Limerick, Ireland and four new junior software developments in China through its Leixin JV. These new additions will further expand its software development capabilities.

During the first quarter of 2014, Leixin commenced the first phase of its infrastructure rollout in five cities in China: Tianjin, Beijing, Chongqing, Changchun and Shijiazhuang. These initial five locations will connect the 95131 to the national telephone network to commence the commissioning of the Leixin VoIP service in China.

One Horizon will provide updates in press on its developments in China and the Philippines in the near term.

"IBM is really all in on blockchain. We take a look at sort of the history of blockchain ledger technologies. It started out with bitcoin, Ethereum, and IBM evaluated these particular blockchain technologies and found they were anonymous and permissionless and that many companies were looking for permissioned blockchain," stated René Bostic, Technical VP of the IBM Cloud Unit in North America, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Conventi...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings. Real-time data streaming and the Internet of Things (IoT) possess the power to turn this vision into a reality. However, most organizations today are building their data infrastructure to focus solely on addressing immediate business needs vs. a platform capable of quickly adapting emerging technologies to address future ...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...
Widespread fragmentation is stalling the growth of the IIoT and making it difficult for partners to work together. The number of software platforms, apps, hardware and connectivity standards is creating paralysis among businesses that are afraid of being locked into a solution.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan. It must do so by realizing that we now live in a data-driven age, and that technologies such as Cloud Computing, Big Data, the IoT, Cognitive Computing, and Blockchain are only tools. In her general session at 21st Cloud Expo, Rebecca Wanta explained how the strategy must focus on DX and include a commitment from top management to create great IT jobs, monitor ...

The IoT Will Grow: In what might be the most obvious prediction of the decade, the IoT will continue to expand next year, with more and more devices coming online every single day. What isn’t so obvious about this prediction: where that growth will occur. The retail, healthcare, and industrial/supply chain industries will likely see the greatest growth. Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
