Calpian, Inc. (OTCQB: CLPI), a global mobile payments technology and processing company, today reported the company’s full year 2014 financial results for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2014, including for the first time the consolidation of the company’s Indian subsidiary Money-On-Mobile which had previously been reported as an investment.
"With strong support from our investors, both long standing and new, as well as our other financial partners and employees, we have been able to make remarkable progress in advancing Calpian toward its objectives on all fronts over the past fiscal year," said Harold Montgomery, Calpian founder and CEO. "Our company has continued to grow and we have strong opportunities ahead as we expand both domestically and in India through Money-On-Mobile."
Revenues – Consolidated revenues were $55.3 million for the year ending March 31, 2014. Revenues included only the fourth quarter of Money-On-Mobile which contributed $29.4 million. Revenues also included a full year of revenue from Calpian Commerce which was acquired in March 2013 and contributed $22.6 million of the total.
Revenue In India – Money-On-Mobile revenues were 8.97 billion Indian rupees for the full year ending March 31, 2014. However, as Calpian only achieved majority ownership in the fiscal fourth quarter, only the fourth quarter’s revenues were consolidated in Calpian’s financial results. (Note: the Indian Rupee to US Dollar exchange rate on March 31, 2014 was USD$1: INR 61.2).
Domestic Revenue in the U.S. – Domestic revenues were $25.5 million for the year ending March 31, 2014. Revenues included a full year of revenue from Calpian Commerce which was acquired in March of 2013, and contributed $22.6 million of the total.
Assets – Consolidated assets were $48.1 million for the year ending March 31, 2014. Assets included $10.1 million of Calpian Commerce assets and $15.9 in Money-On-Mobile assets. Also included in consolidated assets is Calpian’s history-to-date invested capital in the Money-On-Mobile enterprise added to the consolidated balance sheet as part of the conversion from the investment accounting method to the equity accounting method when Calpian acquired majority control.
Equity – Total equity was $15 million for the year ending March 31, 2014, including the reversal of previously passed through losses from the investment in Money-On-Mobile, which are now reflected as part of the company’s investment in the Money-On-Mobile enterprise as shown in the consolidated assets of Calpian.
Cash – Calpian concluded the 2014 fiscal year with a partial closing of an equity raise led by National Securities on March 31, 2014 that was a primary driver of the company’s increase in cash to $8.0 million at year end.
