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.

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.

"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.

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. In addition to sales of master licenses, the Company recognized approximately $0.8 million of revenue from the sale of hardware, user licenses, consultancy and maintenance services during the three months ended June 30, 2014.

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.

Business Updates

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.

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
yperConvergence came to market with the objective of being simple, flexible and to help drive down operating expenses. It reduced the footprint by bundling the compute/storage/network into one box. This brought a new set of challenges as the HyperConverged vendors are very focused on their own proprietary building blocks. If you want to scale in a certain way, let’s say you identified a need for more storage and want to add a device that is not sold by the HyperConverged vendor, forget about it....
