PNI Digital Media Reports Fiscal 2013 Financial Results

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 12/10/13 -- PNI Digital Media (TSX: PN)(OTCQB: PNDMF), ("PNI" or the "Company"), the leading innovator in digital media solutions for retailers, today announced financial results for fiscal 2013 and its fourth quarter ended September 30th, 2013.

"During fiscal 2013, we successfully brought a number of key innovations to market that broadened the PNI Platform and positioned us favourably to respond to the changing needs of our retail partners and their consumers," said Kyle Hall, Chief Executive Officer of PNI Digital Media. "Recognizing the emergence of mobile devices, tablets, social media and cloud storage allowed us to be first to market with new product builders that work on any device and have a rich user experience that integrates cloud and social media. Additionally, the release of our Platform API was a key milestone in our strategy to be a true platform leader, enabling developers to integrate the PNI Platform into their application while we still earn transaction fees without corresponding development efforts. With our new technology now in the market, we are already seeing good adoption and expect our revenues, income and transactions processed to be up in 2014."

"Our fourth quarter of 2013 was a turning point for PNI, demonstrating both year-over-year top-line revenue growth and reduced expenses, resulting in an EBITDA positive quarter," said Cam Lawrence, Chief Financial Officer of PNI. "We expect to continue growing our top-line revenue in the holiday quarter with the recent launch of our HTML5 Card and Invitations builders, and into the New Year as we launch with Office Depot and Samsung."

Fiscal 2013 Fourth Quarter Financial Highlights


--  Revenue for the quarter was $5.4 million compared to $5.1 million in the
    same period in 2012, a 6.3% increase.
--  Generated a non-IFRS EBITDA(1) of $315,656 in Q4 2013, an $830,431
    improvement from an EBITDA loss of $514,775 in Q4 2012.
--  Transactional revenue was $4.1M in the quarter, compared to
    transactional revenue of $3.9M in the fourth quarter last year.
--  Transactional revenue comprised 76% of total revenue for the quarter.

Fiscal 2013 Full Year Operational Highlights


--  The photo industry continues to grow, creating increasing opportunity
    for PNI. During fiscal 2013 the Company processed a record 20.1 million
    transactions across the PNI Digital Media Platform, a 5.2% increase from
    fiscal 2012.
--  The dollar value of online transactions processed for our retail
    partners over the PNI Digital Media Platform increased to $248.7 million
    in online transactions, a 5.3% increase compared to fiscal 2012. This
    growth was driven in part by our investment in mobile technologies, as
    transactions generated from mobile devices increased from 0.5% of total
    online transactions in the third quarter of 2012 to over 7% of online
    transactions in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013.
--  Effective September 1st, 2013 the Company has renegotiated all client
    contracts to a transaction fee model where PNI is compensated by the
    retailers based on a percentage of the transacted order value. This will
    allow PNI to participate in the revenue growth its retailers are seeing
    in photo products.
--  Subsequent to year end, PNI signed a definitive agreement with Samsung
    USA to provide mobile photo printing services as an embedded application
    on Samsung devices. This application will enable Samsung customers to
    route photos taken on their Samsung headset for printing at over 30,000
    retail locations in the United States connected to the PNI Platform,
    including Walmart.com and Walgreens. PNI launched the beta version of
    the application in Q1 2014 and will earn a fee on each transaction
    processed.
--  Signed a multi-year agreement with Office Depot to support their online
    Copy and Print Depot over the PNI Digital Media Platform. Office Depot
    is a new top-tier partner for PNI and we expect to deploy the Platform
    to over 1,100 Office Depot locations.
--  The Company successfully delivered a series of all-new HTML5
    personalized greeting card, invitations and photo collage and gift
    builders for leading retailers PNI's new device agnostic HTML5 builders
    are now live at leading PNI retailers, enabling the easy creation and
    ordering of personalized cards, invitations and photo collages and gifts
    from any tablet, smartphone or computer.
--  Successfully launched the next generation of the PNI Platform with
    leading retailers, including extending our cloud media integrations
    enabling end users to print their digital media files over the PNI
    Digital Media Platform directly from our supported cloud media partners
    to the consumer's preferred retail location. PNI's growing list of
    integrated cloud media partners includes Dropbox, Facebook, Instagram,
    Google+ Photos, Google Drive, Microsoft SkyDrive and Flickr.
--  Successfully launched the PNI Photo Services API, extending our platform
    to support an 'endless aisle' of products and services from third
    parties over our Platform.
--  Acquired QS Quarterhouse Software Ltd ("Quarterhouse"), an Austin-based
    firm specializing in business printing solutions for retailers. The
    integration between Quarterhouse and PNI's Platform continues to proceed
    as expected. PNI also successfully signed and launched its first
    implementations of the Quarterhouse technologies, including launching
    several sites for various AlphaGraphics franchisees.
--  On December 3, 2013, the Company announced that it had entered into an
    underwriting agreement, for the sale of 6,191,000 common shares at a
    price (the "Offering Price") of $1.05 per common share (the "Shares") to
    raise gross proceeds of $6,500,550 under a short form prospectus (the
    "Offering"). The Company has granted to the underwriters an option (the
    "Over-Allotment Option") to purchase up to an additional 928,650 Common
    Shares (the "Over-Allotment Shares"), representing 15% of the number of
    Offered Shares sold under the Offering. The offering is expected to
    close on or about December 20, 2013.

Fiscal 2013 Full Year Fiscal Highlights


--  Revenue for the year was $20.9 million compared to $22.7 million in
    fiscal 2012. The decrease in revenue was due predominantly to
    renegotiated terms with a leading UK retailer.
--  Gross margin in fiscal 2013 was 50%, as compared to 53% in 2012.
--  Generated a loss before taxes in fiscal 2013 of $4.8 million, as
    compared to a loss before taxes of $2.3 million in fiscal 2012.
--  Non-IFRS adjusted EBITDA was negative $1,692,968 during fiscal 2013,
    compared to a non-IFRS adjusted EBITDA gain of $1,464,784 during the
    same period last year. This change is a reflection of the lower revenues
    earned as well as higher personnel costs, higher legal and accounting
    fees, and higher one-time direct costs associated with the reprinting of
    certain items sold.
--  The Company ended the quarter with $2.4 million in cash and cash
    equivalents.

Notes:

(1) - Non-IFRS Measures

The Company continues to provide all information required in accordance with IFRS, but believes evaluating its ongoing operating results may not be as useful if an investor is limited to reviewing only IFRS financial measures. Accordingly, the Company uses non-IFRS financial information to evaluate its ongoing operations and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. The primary non-IFRS financial measures utilized by the Company include adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA is non-IFRS financial measure which the Company defines as net profit plus amortization, impairment, interest expense, tax expense, share-based compensation expense and unrealized foreign exchange loss (gain).

To supplement the Company's financial statements presented on an IFRS basis, we believe that these non-IFRS measures provide useful information about the Company's core operating results and thus are appropriate to enhance the overall understanding of the Company's past financial performance and its prospects for the future. These adjustments to the Company's IFRS results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of the Company's underlying operational results and trends and performance. Management uses these non-IFRS measures to evaluate the Company's financial results, develop budgets, manage expenditures, and determine employee compensation. The presentation of additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for or superior to net (loss) earnings or net (loss) earnings per share determined in accordance with IFRS.

All amounts are expressed in Canadian dollars. This notice is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Company's financial statements and accompanying Management Discussion and Analysis, which are accessible on the SEC'S website at www.sec.gov/edgar.shtml and on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

The industry is heated with debates on whether adopting private or public cloud is the smartest, best, cheapest, you name it choice. But this debate is missing the mark. Businesses shouldn’t be discussing public vs. private, but rather how can they make the two work together to their greatest advantage. The ideal is to merge on-premise and off-premise into a seamless environment that can be managed as a single entity – a forward-looking stance that will eventually see major adoption. But as of late 2013, hybrid cloud was still “rare,” noted Gartner analyst Tom Bittman. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Marten Mickos, CEO of Eucalyptus Systems, will discuss how public clouds need on-premise satellites to win and, conversely, how on-premise environments cannot be really powerful unless they are connected to the public cloud. It’s not two competing worlds; it’s two dimensions of the same world.
