RMG Reports Second Quarter 2017 Results

Achieves Year-over-Year Revenue Growth for the Second Consecutive Quarter
Narrowed Net Loss; Achieves Positive Quarterly Adj. EBITDA

Second Quarter Highlights

  • Total revenues of $9.1 million increased 4% year-over-year

  • Net loss of $1.2 million; Adj. EBITDA1 of $52,000

  • Signed $530,000 contract to expand an existing customer’s interactive digital signage solution into two new facilities in the Middle East

  • Subsequent to quarter-end, made significant advancements in the technology roadmap with a new release of the core enterprise software as well as reaching key milestones toward the release of a next-generation software platform

DALLAS, Aug. 03, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RMG Networks Holding Corporation (NASDAQ:RMGN), or RMG, a global leader in technology-driven visual communications, today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017.

"This was a quarter of continued progress highlighted by year-over-year revenue growth for the second consecutive quarter and positive Adjusted EBITDA for the third time in the last four quarters,” commented Robert Michelson, Chief Executive Officer. “In addition to advancing growth initiatives within our core markets, we continue to advance our technology roadmap, which we believe can significantly expand RMG’s addressable market and position us to increase revenue growth over time.”

“Our revenues during the second quarter benefited from strong product sales and a favorable sales mix, which drove high gross margins,” Michelson added. “Geographically, we continued to see positive signs, particularly in the Middle East where we closed a $530,000 contract with an existing customer to expand its interactive digital signage solution.”

“We are very pleased with our innovation and technology progress during the second quarter and expect to achieve two major milestones in the third quarter. The first achievement is an upgrade to our core enterprise software, which greatly enhances security, performance and scalability for our largest, most data intensive customers, Michelson noted. “Additionally, we have made substantial progress on our next-generation technology platform, which we have begun testing with major customers and believe will allow us to greatly expand our market reach as we move into 2018.”

Second Quarter Financial Review

Total revenue of $9.1 million increased 4% from $8.7 million in the second quarter of 2016.

  • Products revenue of $3.9 million increased 26% from $3.1 million in the same period last year, resulting primarily from increased proprietary hardware sales.

  • Maintenance & content services revenue of $3.4 million declined 4% from $3.5 million in the same period last year, resulting primarily from lower renewals in the United Kingdom and European regions.

  • Professional services revenue of $1.9 million decreased 13% from $2.1 million in the same period last year, resulting primarily from the mix of professional services on new orders closed during the quarter.

1 A non-GAAP measure, we define Adj. EBITDA as net income (loss) with adjustments for interest expense and other income, income tax expense, gain (loss) on change in warrant liability, gain (loss) from discontinued operations, depreciation and amortization expenses and stock-based compensation expense. See “About Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below and the reconciliation table at the end of this release for more information regarding this non-GAAP financial measure.

Gross margin of 61.9% increased from 58.3% in the second quarter of 2016, resulting primarily from a favorable sales mix with increased sales of higher-margin, proprietary hardware and lower third-party hardware sales.

Total operating expenses of $6.5 million decreased 1% from $6.6 million in the same period last year. The company continues to manage and focus on expenses, while strategically investing in certain areas of the business, such as sales and marketing.

GAAP net loss was $1.2 million, or ($0.03) per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $1.6 million, or ($0.05) per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2016. On a non-GAAP basis, Adj. EBITDA of $52,000 improved from a loss of $438,000 in the same period last year.

At June 30, 2017, the company had no borrowings and $4.8 million in unused availability under its revolving line of credit and cash and cash equivalents of $2.2 million.


The company reaffirms its guidance for the full year 2017 of positive revenue growth in the single-digit percentage range. The company expects the level of revenue growth in the second half of 2017 to be impacted by key customer orders, timing of the orders and aggressiveness of the rollout schedules of certain customer projects and initiatives.

Reverse Split

RMG announced today that it will effect a 1-for-4 reverse stock split of its outstanding common stock. The company expects this will be effective for trading purposes as of the commencement of trading on Tuesday, August 15, 2017. The reverse stock split was previously authorized at the RMG’s 2017 Annual Meeting of Stockholders and the company’s Board of Directors approved a ratio within the approved range on August 1, 2017.

The reverse stock split is intended to increase the per share trading price of RMG’s common stock to satisfy the $1.00 minimum bid price requirement for continued listing on The NASDAQ Capital Market. RMG’s common stock will continue to trade on The NASDAQ Capital Market under the symbol “RMGN”. As a result of the reverse stock split, every four pre-split shares of common stock outstanding will become one share of common stock. The reverse stock split will reduce the number of shares of RMG's outstanding common stock from approximately 44.6 million shares to approximately 11.2 million shares. The reverse split will also apply to common stock issuable upon the exercise of RMG’s outstanding warrants and stock options.

RMG’s transfer agent, Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, which is also acting as the exchange agent for the reverse split, will provide instructions to shareholders regarding the process for exchanging share certificates. Any fractional shares of common stock resulting from the reverse stock split will be rounded up to the nearest whole post-split share and no shareholders will receive cash in lieu of fractional shares.

Additional information about the reverse stock split can be found in RMG’s Current Report on Form 8-K being filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), a copy of which will be also available at or in the Investor Relations section of RMG’s website at

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This release includes Adj. EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure as defined under SEC regulations. In evaluating its business, RMG considers and uses Adj. EBITDA as a supplemental measure of its operating performance, and believes that many of the company's investors use this non-GAAP measure to monitor the company's performance. This measure should not be considered as a substitute for the most directly comparable GAAP measure and should not be used in isolation, but in conjunction with this GAAP measure. Our definition of Adj. EBITDA is set forth in footnote (1) above, and a reconciliation between Adj. EBITDA and the relevant GAAP measure is set forth in the table at the end of this press release.
