Investor Update Call Scheduled Today at 4:30 p.m. ET

NEW YORK, Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- YOU On Demand Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: YOD) ("YOU On Demand" or the "Company"), a leading Video On Demand service provider in China delivering Hollywood movies to mobile and TV screens, today announced its operating results for the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2014 (a full copy of its quarterly report on Form 10-Q will be posted at www.sec.gov).  Chairman Shane McMahon, CEO Weicheng Liu and President and CFO Marc Urbach are hosting an investor update conference call today at 4:30 p.m. ET to discuss the Company's recent results.  To join the webcast, please visit the 'Webcasts and Events' section of the YOD corporate website, http://corporate.yod.com.  Otherwise, the toll-free dial-in is: 877/407-3107; international callers should dial: 201/493-6796.

Shane McMahon, Chairman of YOU On Demand, commented, "During the first half of 2014 we successfully pivoted the Company's strategy and its resources to prioritize our IPTV, OTT and Mobile platforms. Given the exciting potential of these fast-growing distribution modes, which are increasingly popular amongst China's tech-savvy and most active consumers of entertainment, YOU On Demand expects to continue generating positive momentum from this strategic shift. As a result, we expect to generate both improved operating efficiencies and enhanced financial results during the second half of this year."

YOU On Demand CEO Weicheng Liu, stated, "Building on the growing popularity of our YOU Hollywood App with Huawei device users, Xiaomi OTT Box owners and other early adopters, we recently softly launched our Hollywood App independently via popular app stores and online channels.  We believe select advertising, marketing and social media outreach, combined with word-of-mouth recommendations and endorsements from satisfied App users, will help promote our unique, differentiated service to an appreciative audience of China's most ardent movie fans."

YOU On Demand President & CFO Marc Urbach commented, "During this critical phase in our organization's corporate development, the senior financial and operations teams will continue striving to combine our strong, unlevered balance sheet, with conservative expense management and moderate levels of fixed overhead costs. There are many opportunities that lie ahead and we expect to best leverage these by maintaining our fiscally prudent strategy for the long-term benefit of the Company's shareholders."

2014 Q2 Operating Results

Revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 increased to $183,000, up from $51,000 in the year-ago Q2 and up 33% over Q1 2014.   Gross loss for the quarter declined to $674,000, down from $739,000 in the comparable 2013 period. Total operating expenses for the quarter fell 10.6% to $2.5 million, reflecting a combination of content revenue-sharing agreements and disciplined corporate overhead levels. The loss from operations of $3.2 million for the quarter was down from a $3.5 million loss from operations in the comparable 2013 period. The net loss from continuing operations for the quarter was $1.1 million – which included a $1.5 million change in the fair value of warrant liabilities – versus $3.5 million net loss from continuing operations in the comparable 2013 period. The net loss attributable to YOU on Demand shareholders amounted to $793,000, down from approximately $3.3 million net loss in Q2 2013. The basic and diluted per share loss was $0.05, compared to a $0.22 basic and diluted per share loss in the year-ago Q2.

Cash and cash equivalents increased from $3.8 million at December 31, 2013, to $15.6 million at June 30, 2014.

DevOpsSummit New York 2018, colocated with CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City. Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with the introduction of DXWorldEXPO within the program.

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
