Printer-friendly

NEW YORK, May 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- deltathree, Inc. (Nasdaq: DDDC), a leading provider of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) hosted communications solutions for service providers, resellers and end-users worldwide, today announced financial results for the first quarter 2007 ended March 31, 2007.

First Quarter 2007 Highlights

  • Acquisition of Go2Call service provider and consumer VoIP business assets.
  • Collaboration with Panasonic on new GLOBARANGE line of hybrid VoIP cordless phones.
  • Launch of joip consumer VoIP service to exclusively support Panasonic hybrid VoIP phones.
  • Gross margin increased to 37% versus 33% in the year ago period.
  • Agreement extended with Verizon Communications to provide management services for Verizon's VoiceWing consumer VoIP service.
  • Market America launched deltathree's award winning Hosted Consumer VoIP Solution.

Revenues for the first quarter of 2007 totaled $8.3 million, a decrease of $2.4 million from the $10.7 million reported for the first quarter of 2006. In the sequential comparison, first quarter 2007 revenues declined $389,000 compared to revenues of $8.7 million reported for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2006.

deltathree reported a GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2007 of $397,000 or $(0.01) per share as compared to GAAP net income of $88,000 or $0.00 per share in the first quarter of 2006 and a GAAP net loss of $107,000 or $(0.00) per share for the fourth quarter of 2006. Approximately $191,000 of the loss recorded for the first quarter of 2007 was attributable to amortization associated with the purchase of Go2Call in February 2007.

Gross margin for the first quarter of 2007 was 37% compared with a gross margin of 33% for the first quarter of 2006 and 35% for the sequential quarter comparison.

deltathree reported adjusted EBITDA, or earnings before non-cash stock- based compensation, interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, positive results for the first quarter of 2007 totaled $158,000 or $0.01 per share, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $485,000 or $0.02 per share in the first quarter of 2006 and $224,000 or $0.01 per share in the sequential quarterly comparison.

deltathree defines adjusted EBITDA as earnings before non-cash stock-based compensation, interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. The Company uses adjusted EBITDA as a measure of the Company's operating trends. Investors are cautioned that adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of liquidity or of financial performance under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). The adjusted EBITDA numbers presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA, while providing useful information, should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income or cash flows as determined under GAAP. Consistent with the SEC Regulation G, the non-GAAP measures in this press release have been reconciled to the nearest GAAP measure, and this reconciliation is located under the heading "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Information to GAAP" following the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations included in this press release.

As of March 31, 2007, deltathree held approximately $13.7 million in cash, cash equivalents, short and long-term investments as well as restricted cash. This represents a decrease of $3.2 million compared to the $16.9 million held as of December 31, 2006. The sequential decline is primarily attributable to the outlay of approximately $2.5 million in cash related to the acquisition of Go2Call which closed during the first quarter of 2007 with the remaining cash utilization related to operational activities during the quarter.

During the first quarter of 2007 the number of deltathree active accounts increased to 505,000 covering consumer and service provider end user accounts, up from 425,000 active accounts as of the end of the fourth quarter of 2006. Contributing to the rise in active accounts during the quarter was the migration of active accounts associated with the Go2Call acquisition which closed during the second half of the first quarter. Active accounts are considered those that made or received a call during the quarter. During the same period, deltathree carried approximately 166.0 million retail minutes of VoIP traffic flow across its network from consumers and service providers, up from the 160.5 million carried during the fourth quarter of 2006.

deltathree Operational Review

Shimmy Zimels, President and Chief Executive Officer of deltathree, stated, "While the first quarter 2007 financial results were disappointing, coming in below our internal performance targets, the quarter was highlighted by several key strategic achievements to support our outlook for growth in the full year. Following the acquisition of the service provider and consumer VoIP assets of Go2Call late in the first quarter, we have now substantially completed the transition of customer accounts and expect the Go2Call business to begin contributing to full year 2007 revenue and earnings growth. Another important milestone during the quarter was the announcement of our strategic collaboration with Panasonic, the worldwide leader in consumer cordless phones, to launch Panasonic's new GLOBARANGE line of hybrid VoIP cordless phones. In direct support of Panasonic's move into the market for Hybrid VoIP phones, deltathree launched joip, our newly formed global consumer brand which is the exclusive provider of VoIP services for Panasonic's GLOBARANGE line of phones.

"These strategic initiatives were complemented by a range of new service provider wins for our award winning Hosted Consumer VoIP Solution for customers such as Market America, UBIUS and Korail Networks Inc. which is the operator of South Korea's high speed rail system, as well as a leading North American local exchange carrier. These achievements provide a range of new growth drivers for deltathree in 2007 which we believe will help support the Company's return to GAAP profitability and sequential revenue growth in the near-term," concluded Mr. Zimels.

Adjusted EBITDA Financial Disclosure

Investors are cautioned that the adjusted EBITDA, or earnings before non- cash stock-based compensation, interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, information contained in this press release and the attached financial information is not a financial measure under generally accepted accounting principles. In addition, it should not be construed as an alternative to any other measures of performance determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or as an indicator of the Company's operating performance, liquidity or cash flows generated by operating, investing and financing activities, as there may be significant factors or trends that it fails to address. Adjusted EBITDA financial information is presented because deltathree believes that it is helpful to some investors as one measure of the Company's operations. deltathree cautions investors that non-GAAP financial information such as adjusted EBITDA, by its nature, departs from traditional accounting conventions; accordingly, its use can make it difficult to compare deltathree's results with the results from other reporting periods and with the results of other companies.
