BAAR, SWITZERLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 08/13/14 -- One Horizon Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: OHGI) ("One Horizon" or the "Company"), which develops and licenses bandwidth efficient mobile voice over Internet Protocol ("VoIP") platform for smart phones, today announced financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014.
One Horizon developed a proprietary VoIP platform ("Horizon Platform") that enables wireless carriers around the world to provide customized and optimized voice and data services over any mobile, fixed and satellite network through an easy to install mobile app. Its SmartPacket technology underlying the Horizon Platform enables greater bandwidth efficiency by reducing IP overhead and optimizing packet flow, delivery and playback. One Horizon targets emerging markets with high population densities, high penetration of mobile phones, congested mobile networks, and high growth in smartphone adoption. It has formed several joint ventures with local partners to capitalize on those opportunities.
Mobile operators pay an annual software licensing fee to the Company and tiered user fee for each active subscriber using the white-label VoIP service powered by the Horizon Platform. The Company continues to expand its revenue sources to mobile advertising and mobile payments by introducing new value-added services and features.
Recent Development Highlights:
- Q2 2014 revenues were approximately $1.3 million vs. $1.25 million in Q2 2013
- Gross margin improved from 29.4% in Q2 2013 to 57.9% in Q2 2014
- Signed an agreement with the Industrial Development Agency of Ireland for possible funding and grants
- Continued building up the LeiXin core network rollout for JV with Leiqiang Telecommunications Co. Ltd.
- Founder and CTO Brian Collins named CEO in July
- Received approval to uplist our common stock to on NASDAQ Capital Market
- Closed a private placement of $1 million for a total of 10 units of securities, each unit consisting of 17,094 shares of Series A preferred stock and 10,000 Class B warrants.
"We are just beginning to see the benefits from years of hard work," stated Brian Collins, Founder and CEO of One Horizon. "After spending the last 6 years developing and perfecting One Horizon mobile VoIP software platform to meet the stringent demands of our customers, we remain focused on launching our unique services with our mobile carrier customers and increasing user adoption. Tier 1 and Tier 2 mobile service providers around the world are looking for ways to optimize their network while capturing a bigger piece of their customers' spending on mobile. Our technology enables them to achieve both and differentiate themselves from their competitors."
Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results
Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2014 were approximately $1.30 million, up 4% from $1.25 million in the same period in 2013. The increase in revenues was primarily due to higher sales of master licenses which Management expects to continue as more companies and users sign up for the One Horizon VoIP Platform. Overall contract value for master license contracts signed from inception through June 30, 2014 was $65.4 million, of which only $9.1 million was recognized through June 30, 2014. Contracts with Tier 1 entities typically require agreed-upon fixed payments over fixed future periods extending beyond one year. Contracts with Tier 2 entities have long-term variable payment terms based on customer usage.

Cost of goods sold and operating expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2014 were approximately $0.55 million and $1.24 million respectively. Gross margin was 57.9% for the second quarter of 2014 compared to 29.4% for the same period a year ago. The primary reason for the increase in gross profit and gross margin was lower hardware sales and corresponding cost of sales.

The Company reported an operating loss of $0.5 million for the second quarter of 2014 compared to an operating loss of $1.9 million in the second quarter of 2013.

During the second quarter of 2014, the Company continued building up the LeiXin core network rollout. The Global Exchange (network control center) was placed in a high availability data center in Shanghai and eight Horizon line servers were connected to the telecommunications network. This level of rollout allowed the Company to issue a preliminary Android App to a group of Chinese students in Nanjing for them to evaluate the user Interface and the core features of our optimized smartphone App. Based on this feedback, the research and development teams in Ireland and China made some adjustments to the App look and feel service to accommodate this target user community.
One Horizon signed a global exchange agreement with a second tier telecommunications company in Hong Kong that targets U.S. citizens traveling overseas. Through a new configuration on the Horizon VoIP app called "RoamFrii," U.S. travelers can eliminate certain roaming charges while traveling internationally.
The research and development teams made further progress on technology and application upgrades. The team based in Switzerland is re-engineering the Horizon VoIP app user interface and expect to release the new version of the software in the third quarter of 2014.
On July 28, 2014, the board of directors appointed Brian Collins, Founder and the Chief Technology officer of the Company, Chief Executive Officer and President of the Company, effective July 28, 2014.

With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...
