Qumu Reports Third Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Software Revenues of $4.4 Million; Up 59% from 3Q 2012

Cash Balance at September 30 of $48.4 Million; $2 Million Above June 30 Balance

Conference call today at 4:30 p.m. ET

MINNEAPOLIS — Qumu Corporation (NASDAQ:QUMU) today reported its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013. Total revenues for the third quarter of 2013 were $21.1 million, an increase of 1% from the third quarter of 2012. Revenues continued to reflect strong growth in the software business, offset by declining disc publishing revenues. The Company reported cash and marketable securities at September 30, 2013 of $48.4 million, an increase of $2.3 million from the balance at June 30, 2013, reflecting improved disc publishing profitability and stronger working capital management.

Third Quarter Financial Highlights

• Total revenues for the third quarter 2013 were $21.1 million, 1% above revenues in the third quarter last year.

• Cash and marketable securities totaled $48.4 million at September 30, 2013, $2.3 million above the $46.1 million at June 30, 2013. The increase was attributable to improved disc publishing profitability and strong working capital management, including lower receivables and lower inventory.

• Software revenues totaled $4.4 million in the third quarter of 2013, an increase of 59% from $2.8 million in the third quarter of 2012. Software contracted commitments were $3.8 million in the third quarter 2013 and year to date totaled $11.6 million.

Sherman L. Black, president and CEO, said, “Our software business demonstrated continued traction in the third quarter with strong year over year revenue growth and we see growing customer interest and adoption of our enterprise video content management platform. We signed three new large customers in the third quarter, including a global financial services provider, the Canadian division of an international consulting firm and a governmental organization in the Middle East.

“On September 16th, we changed our corporate name to Qumu and launched a new branding initiative. In addition, Qumu software was recognized as a leader in enterprise video content management in a Magic Quadrant report recently published by Gartner. The report validates the market potential and our differentiation, specifically our secure delivery, strength of enterprise integrations, flexible deployment and mobility. Customer reaction so far to these developments has been very promising, resulting in increased traction with new accounts. With the significant growth in our pipeline, we have high expectations for Q4 and expect our contracts to significantly exceed the level of any one of the prior three quarters.”

“Cash generation from our disc publishing business increased during the third quarter, reflecting the impact of cost cutting measures, including a reduction in force, that we implemented in Q2, as well as improved inventory management,” Mr. Black stated. “We see solid demand for disc publishing in surveillance, media and entertainment, medical, photo retail and financial services and believe we can serve these markets and continue to generate cash for the Company on an ongoing basis.”

• Disc publishing revenues in the third quarter totaled $16.7 million, a decrease of 8% from the third quarter of 2012. The decline was the result of lower revenues from hardware, partially offset by strength in consumables, driven by strong retail purchases in the third quarter.

• Gross margin for the third quarter of 2013 was 47% compared with 48% in the third quarter last year. The decrease in the margin was due to product mix with lower high margin disc publishing hardware revenues, partially offset by higher margin software revenue. The gross margin for the software business was 53% in the recent third quarter; the disc publishing gross margin was 45%.

• Operating expenses in the third quarter were $11.0 million, down from $12.3 million in the second quarter of 2013 and $41.9 million in the third quarter a year ago, inclusive of non-recurring non-cash charges of $29.5 million for impairment of goodwill and intangible assets. Excluding the impact of these non-recurring charges, non-GAAP operating expenses in last year’s third quarter were $12.3 million. The reduction compared to last year reflected the impact of the cost cutting measures implemented in the second quarter, a reduction in disc publishing R&D project spending and lower legal fees.

• The net loss for the third quarter 2013 was $1.0 million, or $(0.12) per share. Excluding severance and the impact of amortization of intangibles, the third quarter net loss was $(0.08) per share. The net loss in last year’s third quarter totaled $42.8 million and included three non-recurring non-cash charges related to the write-off of goodwill, reduction in the fair market value of intangible assets and the establishment of a valuation allowance against deferred tax assets. Excluding these one-time charges and the impact of intangibles amortization, the non-GAAP net loss for the third quarter of 2012 was $0.9 million, or $(0.09) per share.

First Nine Months of 2013 Financial Highlights

• Total revenues for the first nine months of 2013 were $61.8 million, an increase of 5% over the same period of the prior year.

• Software revenues for the first nine months of 2013 grew 146% to $13.6 million. Disc publishing revenues declined 9% to $48.2 million.

• The net loss for the nine month period of 2013 was $6.9 million, or $(0.80) per share. The net loss for the nine month period of 2012 was $47.2 million, or $(4.64) per share. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding amortization and severance expense, the net loss per share for the nine month period of 2013 was $(0.61). This compares with a net loss of $4.7 million, in the first nine months of 2012, or $(0.46) per share on a non-GAAP basis, excluding one-time charges and amortization expenses.

The Company did not repurchase any shares of its common stock during the third quarter 2013. There are approximately 778,000 shares remaining for repurchase under the authorization. As of September 30, 2013, there were approximately 8,661,000 shares outstanding.

Financial Guidance
The Company believes the revenue guidance previously established for 2013 is achievable and expects consolidated revenues to grow compared to 2012. Revenues from the software business are expected to grow greater than 70% in 2013 compared to 2012. This growth is expected to be partially offset by a decline in disc publishing revenues. Fourth quarter 2013 revenues are expected to be between $18 million and $20 million. For 2013, the Company expects the disc publishing business to generate cash and expects cash used in operations for the Company to remain in the low single digit millions.
