VANCOUVER, Jan. 14, 2016 /CNW/ - Destiny Media Technologies (TSXV: DSY) (OTCQX: DSNY), the makers of Play MPE®, a system for the secure distribution of pre-release music to radio and the developer of Clipstream®, a cross-platform player-less video streaming format, today announced its financial results for its fiscal 2016 first quarter ended November 30, 2015.

Highlights

Highlights during and subsequent to the end of the first quarter include:

  • Renewed Agreement with Universal Music Group for Use of its Play MPE® Distribution System
  • Successfully Migrated the Play MPE® Digital Distribution System to the Cloud.
  • Introduced the new Clipstream® Fall Release.

First Quarter Fiscal 2016 Results

Revenue for the quarter ended November 30, 2015 was $847,721 a decrease of 11.2% compared to the first quarter of 2014. The decrease in revenue was due primarily to the impact of a decline in value of the Euro relative to the US Dollar. Eliminating the negative impact of approximately $76,000 for the effect of foreign exchange rates, total revenue for the first quarter would have decreased by 3.2%. 

During the first quarter 2016, revenue from the Play MPE® segment decreased 11.4 percent versus the same period last year, also due primarily to the negative impact of foreign exchange rates.

Net loss for the first quarter was ($101,007), or ($0.00) per share, versus a net loss of ($56,309), or ($0.00) during the prior year. The loss was primarily due to the effect of unfavorable exchange rates for the Euro and Australian dollar.

"We have had some exciting achievements over the last several months," said Steve Vestergaard, Chief Executive Officer for Destiny Media Technologies. "The finalization of the Universal Music contract sets a solid revenue base for our Play MPE business going forward. We also recently completed the migration of our MPE digital distribution system to the cloud, which will result in cost savings and opportunity for new product offerings that should drive revenue growth in the future. Additionally, we are in the final stages of completing our Clipstream cloud offering, which should lead to opportunities for incremental growth on the Clipstream side of the business."
