Digimarc Reports Third Quarter 2013 Financial Results

by Sitefinity Administrator | Oct 30, 2013

Beaverton, Ore. — October 30, 2013 — Digimarc Corporation (NASDAQ: DMRC) reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013.

Third Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Revenue for the third quarter of 2013 was $7.4 million compared to $8.9 million in the third quarter of 2012. The decrease was primarily due to the end of the fixed quarterly license payments from Intellectual Ventures in May 2013, partially offset by increased subscription revenue from the company’s acquisition of Attributor Corporation in December 2012, and increased revenue from the Central Banks.

Operating loss for the third quarter of 2013 was $2.0 million compared to operating income of $1.6 million in the same quarter a year ago. The operating results for the third quarter of 2013 reflect the reduced revenue and the addition of Attributor’s operations as well as increased investments in sales and marketing, and research and development initiatives.

Net loss for the third quarter of 2013 totaled $0.8 million or $(0.12) per diluted share compared to net income of $1.0 million or $0.14 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2012. The decrease was due to lower operating income, partially offset by a benefit for income taxes in the third quarter of 2013.

At September 30, 2013, cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities totaled $38.1 million compared to $39.1 million at December 31, 2012.
