YOU On Demand Reports 2013 Results; Provides Update On Ongoing Operational Progress

- Management to Host Call at 4:30 p.m. ET -

NEW YORK, March 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- YOU On Demand Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: YOD) ("YOU On Demand" or the "Company" or "YOD"), a leading multi-platform entertainment and Video On Demand ("VOD") company in China, announced today its year-end operating results for the period ended December 31, 2013 (a full copy of the Company's annual report on Form 10-K is also being posted at www.sec.gov).   

Conference Call: Chairman Shane McMahon and Chief Financial Officer & President Marc Urbach will host a conference call at 4:30 p.m. ET (1:30 p.m. PT) today. The dial-in numbers are 800.734.4208 or (+1) 212.231.2900 (international callers).

Recent Highlights

  • In early February 2014, C Media Limited, a leading China-based mobile video service provider, led an investment into YOU On Demand of $19 million USD cash, raising the total C Media-led investment stake to $25.0 million USD.
    • In conjunction with C Media's recent investment, three new directors (Mr. Jin Shi, Mr. Clifford Higgerson and Mr. Arthur Wong) were appointed to YOD's board of directors, replacing two departing directors.
  • The Company forged arrangements with leading movie studios to include feature films – new releases and library titles – via YOU On Demand's newly launched mobile application (App), YOU Cinema. The App will offer both Transactional (TVOD) and Subscription-based (SVOD) options as YOD does on other platforms.
  • Kevin Lin was appointed Chief Technology Officer, bringing more than two decades of relevant industry experience and will be responsible for all facets of technology development, including product management and marketing, content production and operations.  Prior to joining YOU On Demand, Kevin served as a principal architect at Huawei's Silicon Valley Research Labs, advising internally on key technology disruptions and major shifts.
  • YOD announced partnerships with Sesame Workshop, HiT Enterprises and Nelvana, three of the world's leading producers of family-friendly entertainment, to offer Chinese consumers subscription-based content on its YOU Kids On Demand service ("YOU Kids"), slated to launch later this year.

Weicheng Liu, CEO, commented, "Backed by C Media's support, we continue to make progress on a number of fronts, including our successful recent expansion onto the mobile entertainment distribution platform.  Our YOU Cinema App is now being prominently displayed on Huawei's Mate Smartphones, generating increasing levels of consumer interest for new and library movie titles from two of our leading Hollywood studio partners, Paramount and Disney.

"We are also delighted that three new partners are providing us with some of the most popular and compelling children's television programming. We are presently working out the logistics of this subscription-based offering with Sesame Workshop, HiT Enterprises and Nelvana and will have further details when YOU Kids is ready for its official debut. With a growing array of available premium programming, YOD is building incremental brand awareness and is fast becoming synonymous with high quality entertainment offerings throughout China on an increasing number of digital platforms."

YOD 2013 Operating Results

Marc Urbach, YOU On Demand's President & CFO, commented, "Our 2013 results demonstrate YOD's ability to grow our VOD revenue as well as our ability to expand our business across new sources of revenue, including mobile. We are pleased to see our digital cable, OTT and IPTV VOD platforms continue to grow in popularity among consumers and excited about the promising start of YOU On Demand's mobile launch with our prominent Chinese partners. C Media's increased capital investment affords us a much stronger balance sheet and overall improved financial health that we believe will serve us well as we target achieving cash flow positive status in the near future given our comparatively lean and efficient operations."

It is important to note that YOU On Demand's financial results for the 2012 full-year period mainly reflect the operations of its now legacy business, Shandong Media.  Those results were deconsolidated as of July 1, 2012 and are being accounted for under the equity method.  In order to provide a more meaningful comparison of our financial results, our discussion of the Company's Consolidated Results of Operations in the Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations section of the 10-K, utilizes Pro Forma 2012 financial information that excludes the impact of Shandong Media.  Excluding the contribution from Shandong Media, revenues for the period ending December 31, 2012 totaled $5,000.  That compares to revenues for the period ending December 31, 2013 of $0.3 million.

Total operating expenses declined 22% on a Pro Forma basis and the Company's reduced cost base along with a one-time net gain from discontinued operations, helped lead to an approximate 49% reduction in the annual net loss.

YOD's cash and cash equivalents balance at December 31, 2013 rose to $3.8 million, up from $3.3 million a year earlier, and this figure does not yet reflect the additional gross $19.0 million infusion from C Media and other investors, which was received during Q1 2014.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated.
