Bingo.com Announces First Quarter Results

ANGUILLA, BRITISH WEST INDIES -- (Marketwired) -- 05/05/14 -- Bingo.com, Ltd. (OTCQB: BNGOF), owner of the popular online gaming community http://www.bingo.com, today announced its unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014. All amounts are presented in United States dollars and in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.

Recent Bingo.com highlights include:


--  Total revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, was $548,471, an
    increase of 36% from revenue of $404,488 in the fourth quarter of 2013.
--  Two separate financings for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, for a
    total of 1,750,000 common shares at $0.40 per share raising $700,000 in
    total.
--  Soft-launch of Trophy Bingo on Android smart-phones and tablets world-
    wide

"We continued to implement our long-term business strategies during the first quarter of 2014" said Jason Williams, Bingo.com's CEO. "In our European cash gaming business revenues increased significantly as a result of changes to the marketing mix and favourable gaming results during the quarter. We continue to invest in select marketing campaigns that have shown the highest returns and in markets where Bingo.com's brand is the strongest," continued Williams. "In our social casino business, we soft-launched Trophy Bingo in the Google Playstore during the quarter. The game has been rated highly by players on the platform and its analytics remain strong. We continue to invest heavily in the development of Trophy Bingo as we pursue a strategy of product differentiation in the social bingo marketplace. In the first quarter of 2014 we commenced amortizing the development expenses incurred to date and are expensing the ongoing development costs as they occur. This accounting change has resulted in a large loss for the quarter despite our revenue growth"

Total revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, was $548,471, an increase of 36% from revenue of $404,488, in the fourth quarter of 2013 and a decrease of 7% from revenue of $590,199 for first quarter of 2013. Gaming Revenue was $541,329 in the quarter ended March 31, 2014, a 36% increase from revenue of $398,390 in the fourth quarter of 2013 and a decrease of 7%, compared to Gaming Revenue of $582,760 in the first quarter of 2013. The increase compared to the fourth quarter of 2013, is in part due to a large insured jackpot winner whereas the decrease compared to the first quarter of 2013 is due to a large marketing campaign in new markets in the first quarter of 2013, which resulted in a short term increase in players and revenue without showing a long term benefit due to the intense competition. We earned advertising revenue of $7,142 in the quarter ended March 31, 2014, an increase of 17% from advertising revenue of $6,098 in the fourth quarter of 2013 and a decrease of 4% from advertising revenue of $7,439 in the first quarter of 2013.

Operating costs before interest, and depreciation expenses, including sales and marketing and general and administrative expenses increased to $900,536 in the first quarter of 2014, an increase of 42% over operating costs of $632,041 in the fourth quarter of 2013 and a decrease of 15% over operating expenses of $1,060,985 in the first quarter of 2013. In the first quarter of 2014, the Company ceased to capitalize the development of Trophy Bingo and commenced amortizing the capitalized development costs, as well as expensing the current development costs. Therefore, this increased the operating costs in the first quarter of 2014 compared to the fourth quarter of 2013. The decrease in operating expenses, compared to the first quarter of 2013, is due to a reduced media budget in the first quarter of 2014 compared to the larger media expenditures in new markets in the first quarter of 2013.

Sales and marketing expenses were $355,225 for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, a decrease of 30% from expenses of $507,421 in the fourth quarter of 2013 and a decrease of 59% over expenses of $868,789 in the first quarter of 2013. Sales and marketing expenses principally include costs for television marketing, Search Engine Optimization expenses, prizes for our players and other bonuses and incentives offered to gaming players. The decrease in sales and marketing expenses for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, compared to the first and fourth quarter of 2013 is due to larger media budgets in fiscal 2013 to drive additional players to the website and to expand into new European markets.

Net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2014, amounted to $352,692, a loss of $0.01 per share, an increase in net loss compared to a net loss of $230,167 or loss of $0.00 per share in the fourth quarter of 2013 and a decrease in net loss compared to net loss of $471,189, a loss of $0.01 per share, for the same period in 2013.

We had cash of $837,550 and positive working capital of $1,111,589 at March 31, 2014. This compares to cash of $491,203 and positive working capital of $646,104 at December 31, 2013.
