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.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs.

"People are a lot more knowledgeable about APIs now. There are two types of people who work with APIs - IT people who want to use APIs for something internal and the product managers who want to do something outside APIs for people to connect to them," explained Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at SOA Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
"At our booth we are showing how to provide trust in the Internet of Things. Trust is where everything starts to become secure and trustworthy.

Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices. To retrofit existing programs across all these devices using traditional programming methods is very costly and time consuming – often prohibitively so.

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
