SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- OpenTV (NASDAQ:OPTV), a leading provider of enabling technologies for advanced digital television services, today announced its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2005. "Our third quarter results reflect our continuing strategic and operating progress across our key businesses," said OpenTV's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, James A. Chiddix. "We continue to see increased activity and interest in the United States and internationally for interactive solutions and products, and, in fact, have, over the past several months, responded to more proposal requests than we have seen in many years. In addition, we have already begun to see the benefits from our recent acquisition of CAM Systems, which has driven us to a leadership position in the growing cable advertising market and deepened our relationships with North American cable operators. Our industry is seeing an accelerating pace of activity, and I feel highly confident that we have the global platform and expertise to take advantage of many of the opportunities that lie ahead. " Key Operating Measures Three months ended Three months ended % September 30, 2005 September 30, 2004 Change Revenues $19.5 million $16.6 million 17% Adjusted EBITDA, before unusual items $(1.3) million $(3.6) million Cash, Cash Equivalents and Marketable Debt Securities $55.0 million $51.9 million 6% For the quarter ended September 30, 2005, revenues were $19.5 million, 17% higher than revenues of $16.6 million for the third quarter of 2004. Net loss for the quarter was $4.1 million, or $0.03 per share, compared to a loss of $4.8 million, or $0.04 per share, for the third quarter of 2004. Adjusted EBITDA, before unusual items, improved to a loss of $1.3 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2005, compared to a loss of $3.6 million for the third quarter of 2004. Adjusted EBITDA, before unusual items, is a non-GAAP financial measure. Reconciliations of the differences between this non-GAAP financial measure and net loss, which is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure are included at the end of this press release. Additional information regarding the derivation of adjusted EBITDA and a statement of the relevance to management of this information and its possible usefulness to investors is also included in this release. Segment Information (quarter over quarter comparisons) Revenues * Middleware and Integrated Technologies revenues increased by 18% to $15.4 million for the quarter * Applications revenues increased by 7% to $3.2 million for the quarter * BettingCorp revenues increased by 80% to $0.9 million for the quarter Contribution Margin * Middleware and Integrated Technologies contribution margin increased by $0.4 million to $5.4 million for the quarter * Applications contribution margin improved by $0.4 million to a loss of $1.1 million for the quarter * BettingCorp contribution margin decreased by $0.1 million to a loss of $1.2 million for the quarter Overall contribution margin improved to $3.1 million in the three months ended September 30, 2005, compared to $2.4 million for the same period in the prior year. Unallocated corporate overhead was reduced by $1.6 million in the three months ended September 30, 2005 compared to the prior year period, reflecting improved cost controls. As of September 30, 2005, OpenTV had cash, cash equivalents and short- and long-term marketable debt securities totaling $55.0 million compared to $63.0 million as of December 31, 2004. Conference Call Details OpenTV will conduct a conference call to discuss the Company's third quarter 2005 financial results. The details of the call are as follows: Date and Time: Monday, November 7, 2005 at 2 p.m. PT Dial-in Number US: 800-591-6944 Dial-in Number International: 617-614-4910 Pass Code: 74878330 Replay Number US: 888-286-8010 Replay Number International: 617-801-6888 Pass Code: 62091080 The conference call replay will be available from Monday, November 7, 2005 at 4 p.m. PT through Monday, November 14, 2005, until 4 p.m. PT on the Investor Relations section of the OpenTV website at http://www.opentv.com/. About Segment Information Because Segments reflect the manner in which management reviews our business, they necessarily involve judgments that management believes are reasonable in light of the circumstances under which they are made. These judgments may change over time or may be modified to reflect new facts or circumstances. Segments may also be changed or modified to reflect technologies and applications that are newly created, or that change over time, or other business conditions that evolve, each of which may result in reassessing specific Segments and the elements included within each of those Segments and the methodologies that management uses to assess its performance In addition to reviewing the company's Segments by revenues, management also reviews and assesses the "contribution margin" of each of these Segments, which is not a GAAP financial measure. The company defines "contribution margin," for these purposes, as adjusted EBITDA, before unusual items and unallocated corporate overhead (corporate overhead includes certain functions, such as executive management, accounting, administration, legal, tax, treasury and information technology infrastructure, that support but are not specifically attributable to a particular Segment's expenses). Management believes that Segment contribution margin is a helpful measure in evaluating operational performance for the company. Non-GAAP Financial Measures "EBITDA" is an acronym for earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA, as used in this release, removes from EBITDA the effects of amortization of intangible assets, other income and expense, and minority interest. "Adjusted EBITDA before unusual items" removes from Adjusted EBITDA the effects of contract amendments that mitigated potential loss positions and restructuring costs. OpenTV believes Adjusted EBITDA before unusual items and contribution margin, as it relates to Adjusted EBITDA, to be relevant and useful information for an investor because they are some of the principal measures used by OpenTV's management to assess the financial performance of its business. OpenTV believes that certain non-GAAP measures, when presented in conjunction with comparable GAAP measures, may be useful in that they provide the reader with some of the same information used by OpenTV's management in assessing its business. OpenTV's management believes that both Adjusted EBITDA before unusual items and contribution margin are meaningful measures and are superior to other available GAAP measures because each measure represents a transparent view of OpenTV's recurring operating performance and allows management to readily view operating trends, perform analytical comparisons and benchmarking between segments and identify strategies to improve operating performance. Neither Adjusted EBITDA before unusual items nor contribution margin take into account the substantial costs of doing business, such as income taxes and interest. While OpenTV's management may consider Adjusted EBITDA before unusual items and contribution margin to be important measures of comparative operating performance, they should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, loss from operations, net loss, cash flow used in operating activities and other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States that are presented in the financial statements included in this press release. Additionally, OpenTV's calculation of Adjusted EBITDA before unusual items and contribution margin may be different from the calculation used by other companies and, therefore, comparability may be affected. OpenTV reconciles Adjusted EBITDA before unusual items and each reportable segment's contribution margin to its consolidated net loss as presented in the accompanying financial exhibits, because OpenTV believes consolidated net loss is the most directly comparable financial measure. While OpenTV believes that the presentation regarding non-GAAP financial measures in this press release complies with the rules and guidance of the SEC, it can give no assurance that it will be able to provide the same or comparable measures in future press releases or announcements. OpenTV may, in the future, determine to present non-GAAP financial measures other than "Adjusted EBITDA before unusual items," "Adjusted EBITDA" or "contribution margin," together with comparable GAAP measures, that it believes may be useful to investors. Any such determinations will be made with the intention of providing the most useful information to investors and will reflect the information used by OpenTV's management in assessing its business, which may change from time to time.
