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.

In her session at @ThingsExpo, Natalia Ponomareva, Software Engineer at Google, will provide tips on how to be successful in large scale machine lear...
The IoT has the potential to create a renaissance of manufacturing in the US and elsewhere. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Florent Solt, CTO and chief architect of Netvibes, will discuss how the expected exponential increase in the amount of data that will be processed, transported, stored, and accessed means there will be a huge demand for smart technologies to deliver it. Florent Solt is the CTO and chief architect of Netvibes. Prior to joining Netvibes in 2007, he co-founded Rift Technol...
Struggling to keep up with increasing application demand? Learn how Platform as a Service (PaaS) can streamline application development processes and make resource management easy.
If there is anything we have learned by now, is that every business paves their own unique path for releasing software- every pipeline, implementation and practices are a bit different, and DevOps comes in all shapes and sizes. Software delivery practices are often comprised of set of several complementing (or even competing) methodologies – such as leveraging Agile, DevOps and even a mix of ITIL, to create the combination that’s most suitable for your organization and that maximize your busines...
The increasing popularity of the Internet of Things necessitates that our physical and cognitive relationship with wearable technology will change rapidly in the near future. This advent means logging has become a thing of the past. Before, it was on us to track our own data, but now that data is automatically available. What does this mean for mHealth and the "connected" body? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Lisa Calkins, CEO and co-founder of Amadeus Consulting, will discuss the impact of wea...
See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...

We’ve worked with dozens of early adopters across numerous industries and will debunk common misperceptions, which starts with understanding that many of the connected products we’ll use over the next 5 years are already products, they’re just not yet connected. With an IoT product, time-in-market provides much more essential feedback than ever before. Innovation comes from what you do with the data that the connected product provides in order to enhance the customer experience and optimize busi...
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
