MTS Announces Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

RA'ANANA, Israel, Aug. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MTS – Mer Telemanagement Solutions Ltd. (Nasdaq Capital Market: MTSL), a global provider of Mobile Virtual Network Enabler (MVNE), Mobile Money and telecommunications expense management (TEM) solutions and services, today announced its financial results for the second quarter of 2014.

Revenues for the second quarter of 2014 were $1.7 million, compared with $3.1 million in revenues during the same quarter last year and revenues of $1.8 million in the first quarter of 2014. The Company's operating loss was $291,000 in the second quarter of 2014 compared to an operating profit of $377,000 for the second quarter of 2013 and compared to operating loss of $313,000 in the first quarter of 2014. Net loss for the second quarter was $302,000 or ($0.06) per diluted share, compared with net income of $309,000 or $0.07 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2013 and a net loss of $315,000 or ($0.07) per diluted share in the first quarter of 2014. The principal factor that adversely affected the quarter's results was the termination of revenues from the agreement with Simple Mobile that ended on December 31, 2013.

Revenues for the six month period ended June 30, 2014 were $3.5 million, compared with $6.4 million for the comparable period in 2013. Net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was $617,000 or ($0.13) per diluted share, compared with net income of $653,000 or $0.14 per diluted share in the comparable period in 2013.

As of June 30, 2014, MTS had cash and marketable securities of $6.0 million, as compared to $6.5 million as of December 31, 2013.

"We are continuing to work diligently to increase revenues and in parallel we are closely monitoring our operating expenses. We are also evaluating several M&A transactions as part of our strategy to enhance our business and increase shareholder value," said Mr. Chaim Mer, Chairman of the Board.
