DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - May 14, 2014) - Roomlinx, Inc. (OTCQB: RMLX) (OTCQB: RMLXP), the innovative developer of media networks and interactive TV (iTV) applications for the hospitality industry, today announced financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2014.
In the first quarter of 2014, recurring monthly hospitality revenue increased 5.5% over the same period in 2013 while total revenue decreased 19% to $1.6 million compared to 2013. This decrease was primarily related to the decrease in new equipment and installation revenue which approximated $420,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 vs. 2013.
As of March 31, 2014, the Company was servicing approximately 64,000 RGUs within the hospitality sector, a 10% increase over the number of RGUs being serviced as of March 31, 2013. An RGU is defined as a product or service for which the Company invoices the hotel monthly, including interactive television, video on demand, free to guest programming, and high speed internet access.
For the three months ended March 31, 2014, Roomlinx reported a net loss of $0.5 million, compared to a net loss of $1.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013, a reduction of net loss of $0.8 million. The decrease in net loss is attributable to an increase in revenues less direct costs approximating $0.2 million and the effect of our cost reduction and containment program resulting in a decrease in operating costs of $0.6 million.
Adjusted EBITDA improved $0.8 million to negative $250,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 versus negative $1.05 million for the same period in 2013. This improvement was due to the cost reduction and containment program implemented in 2013. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization expense adjusted for the loss on discontinued operations, non-cash charges for stock based compensation, and non-cash gains or losses resulting from the settlement of liabilities.
Roomlinx financial highlights for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 include the following:
- Improved Adjusted EBITDA $0.8 million year-over-year.
- Operating costs decreased $0.6 million year-over-year.
- Recurring monthly hospitality revenue increased 5.5% year-over-year.
Basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding for the three months ended March 31, 2014 were 6,411,413 compared to 6,405,413 in the year-earlier period.

Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...

In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
