ZoomerMedia Limited Announces Financial Results for the Three and Twelve Months Ended June 30, 2014

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 08/21/14 -- ZoomerMedia Limited (TSX VENTURE: ZUM) (the "Company"), the leader in serving the interests of the 45+ "Zoomer" market in Canada, today announced its financial results for the three and twelve months ended June 30, 2014.

Consolidated Results

For the three months ended June 30, 2014, the Company had revenues of $14.7 million, operating expenses of $12.9 million and EBITDA of $1.8 million. The net income for the three months ended June 30, 2013 was $0.8 million. For the comparable three months ended June 30, 2013, the Company had revenues of $14.9 million, operating expenses of $12.9 million and EBITDA of $2.0 million. Net income for the quarter was $3.3 million.

For the twelve months ended June 30, 2014, the Company had revenues of $55.1 million, operating expenses of $50.9 million and EBITDA of $4.1 million. The net loss for the period was $1.8 million. For the comparable twelve months ended June 30, 2013, the Company had revenues of $56.3 million, operating expenses of $47.8 million and EBITDA of $8.4 million. Net income for the period was $5.3 million.

EBITDA is a non-IFRS earnings measure which does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to EBITDA presented by other companies. EBITDA represents earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. This measure is important to management since it is used by potential investors to evaluate the Company's operating performance and ability to incur and service debt, and as a valuation metric. Investors are cautioned that this non-IFRS financial measure should not be construed as an alternative to other measures of financial performance calculated in accordance with IFRS.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing.
