Digimarc Reports First Quarter 2014 Financial Results

BEAVERTON, OR -- (Marketwired) -- 04/23/14 -- Digimarc Corporation (NASDAQ: DMRC) reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

First Quarter 2014 Results
Revenue for the first quarter of 2014 totaled $7.2 million compared to $10.2 million in the first quarter of 2013. The decrease was primarily due to the end of the scheduled minimum quarterly license fee payments from Intellectual Ventures (IV) in the second quarter of 2013. The comparative decline was partially offset by increased royalty revenue from other licensees.

Operating loss for the first quarter of 2014 totaled $3.3 million compared to operating income of $1.6 million in the same quarter a year-ago. The operating loss was primarily due to lower revenue and increased investment in the company's ongoing product development and sales growth initiatives, mainly focused around Digimarc Discover and Barcode.

Net loss for the first quarter of 2014 totaled $2.0 million or $(0.29) per diluted share compared to net income of $1.0 million or $0.13 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2013.

At March 31, 2014, cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities totaled $32.3 million compared to $35.0 million at December 31, 2013.
