VANCOUVER, July 17, 2012 /CNW/ - Destiny Media Technologies (TSXV: DSY) (OTCQX: DSNY) is pleased to announce results for the quarter ending May 31, 2012. Revenues of $1,022,921 reflect a 14% increase from the prior quarter, but a 13% decline from the prior year. The decline as compared to the prior year quarter is attributable to the recognition of a single revenue item included in a multi-year agreement that was recognized in Q3-2011. European revenues increased 11% over the prior year and currently represent 44% of our music distribution revenue. Nine month revenue was approximately the same as in prior year.
Operating expenses for the quarter declined from $853,098 in the prior year to $208,827. The decline is attributable to a gain on the settlement of litigation in Australia. The company agreed to accept a settlement with a value of approximately $859,000. The company will receive the payment, which is secured by real estate and a general security agreement, over six years. The outstanding balance attracts 10.25% interest and is recorded as a long term receivable. Litigation costs during the period were significant. Over nine months, the company spent approximately $607,000 on legal fees. This expense will decline significantly in future quarters. R&D expenses increased 25% over the prior year, reflecting increased investments in IP, infrastructure and staffing to support the launch of our new Clipstream® and Play MPE® products.
Net income increased 182% over the prior year to $651,138 ($.01 per share).
