Destiny Media Announces Q2 Results

VANCOUVER, April 15 /CNW/ - Destiny Media Technologies (TSXV: DSY) (OTCBB: DSNY) is pleased to announce results for the quarter ending February 28, 2011.

Revenues of $841,072 were down 3.3% from the prior year due primarily to a 2.5% decline in Play MPE® revenues.  Expenses of $903,237 were up 16.9% over the prior year, due mainly to a 29.7% increased investment in R&D.  The net loss for the quarter was $43,027.

Commenting on the results, company CEO Steve Vestergaard says that the emphasis for the seasonally slow quarter was building the foundation for rapid international Play MPE® growth and readying new watermarking and Clipstream® services for launch.

"We anticipate returning to profitability and continued growth in Q3.  We are currently looking to expand our penetration into major markets in Europe and Asia and expect to see continued growth in revenue in those areas over the coming quarters.

R&D efforts have focused on improving speed, reliability and redundancy across the four server facilities in Europe and North America, integrating with partner networks and building out new versions of the software and ancillary services, such our patent pending online watermarking solution. We've continued to de-emphasize legacy Clipstream® licensing in favor of building out two new higher margin service based Clipstream® offerings, which will be launching this year."
