CrowdGather, Inc. Announces Continued Restructuring and Third Quarter and Nine Month Fiscal 2014 Results

One of the leading networks of forum communities on the Internet, CrowdGather, Inc. (OTCQB:CRWG), today announced financial results for the third quarter ended January 31, 2014.

The Company reported revenues of $446,201 for the three months ended January 31 of fiscal 2014, resulting in $1,283,240 in total revenue for the nine months ended January 31 of fiscal 2014, compared to $508,689 and $1,523,623, respectively, for the same periods in the prior fiscal year. Revenues for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 were 12% lower than the third quarter of fiscal 2013, due primarily to advertising campaigns and ad partners that were non-recurring in the third quarter of fiscal 2014 when compared to the same period in fiscal 2013. The Company consistently attempts to diversify and grow revenues in an attempt to mitigate the volatility of advertising payouts and non-recurring ad campaigns.

“During fiscal 2014, we continued to conduct additional corporate restructuring to reduce costs, and have entered into an agreement to sell some non-core assets to enable our ability to aggressively pursue high growth strategic alternatives that better leverage our users, especially the mobile ones,” said Sanjay Sabnani, CrowdGather’s Chairman and CEO. “The capital raised from the asset sale will enable us to aggressively seek merger or acquisition candidates in the rapidly growing mobile app and social gaming technology sector. Subsequent to the asset sale, we will be retaining more than 90% of our monthly revenue, our monthly page views and our monthly unique users. Additionally, while we pursue strategic alternatives, we will continue to monetize and improve the user experience on our remaining online communities.”

Gross profit was $445,498 and $1,279,915 respectively, for the three months and nine months ended January 31 of fiscal 2014, compared to $482,937 and $1,478,655 for the same periods in the prior fiscal year. On a quarterly basis, gross profit declined by 8%.

Net loss was $338,597 or $.01 per share, and $1,554,329, or $.03 per share, for the third quarter and nine months ended January 31 of fiscal 2014, compared to $682,193, or $.01 per share, and $2,152,619 or $.04 per share, for the same periods of fiscal 2013. Net loss was significantly lower during Q3 fiscal 2014 when compared to the same period in the prior fiscal year primarily due to the effect of the successful corporate restructuring and cost reductions made by the Company.

CrowdGather ended the third quarter of fiscal 2014 with approximately $0.2 million of cash and $14.1 million of shareholders’ equity.

During January 2014, the Company reached over 120 million monthly page views across all properties, and had over 12 million monthly unique visitors according to Google Analytics. The Company continues to prune non-monetizable content and does not anticipate any impact to revenue.
