LiveOne’s Senior Management Will Host a Live Conference Call and Audio Webcast Beginning at 5:00 P.M. ET Thursday, November 10, 2022

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–LiveOne (Nasdaq: LVO), an award-winning, creator-first, music, entertainment, and technology platform, announced today Its operating results for the second quarter (“Q2 Fiscal 2023”) and first six months ended September 30, 2022.

In the first six months ended September 30, 2022 (“1H Fiscal 2023”), LiveOne posted consolidated revenue of $46.8 million, as well as Contribution Margin* of $9.8 million. LiveOne posted a net loss of $2.1 million on a consolidated basis, or $(0.02) per diluted share for the same period. LiveOne’s Adjusted EBITDA* in 1H Fiscal 2023 was a record $6.4 million. In 1H Fiscal 2023, LiveOne extinguished approximately $16 million of payables. LiveOne ended the Q2 Fiscal 2023 with $7.4 million in cash and $25.4 million in short-term assets.

As part of LiveOne’s focus on generating cash from operations on a consolidated basis, LiveOne is implementing additional cost and expense reductions from both operations and corporate overhead, which is anticipated to increase the previously implemented annual cost savings to a total of over $25 million in its fiscal year ending March 31, 2023 (“Fiscal 2023”).

Separately, LiveOne announced today that its board of directors has authorized it to expand its previously announced stock repurchase program by up to an additional $2,000,000 worth of shares of its common stock to be repurchased from time to time. Since April 1, 2022, LiveOne has repurchased 2,000,000 shares under the program. The authorization to repurchase will expire on December 31, 2023.

LiveOne’s CEO and Chairman, Robert Ellin, commented, “The momentum in LiveOne’s audio business, which includes Slacker Radio and PodcastOne, continues to experience growth of paid members through partnerships, including Tesla, as well as an increase in advertising and sponsorships. We expect our audio business to collectively achieve revenue in excess of $80 million in Fiscal 2023 and generate more than $16 million in Adjusted EBITDA.”

Mr. Ellin continued, “Over the past year, we have successfully reduced costs and overhead by an expected $25 million on an annual basis while focusing on the operating performance of our audio division. A significant part of our strategy is a decision to forgo any live tentpole and pay-per-view events until Fiscal 2024, which has resulted in a lowering of expected Fiscal 2023 revenue to between $100 million and $110 million. These measures will allow us to utilize our capital and resources to strengthen our balance sheet, buyback stock and focus on the growth of our profitable businesses.”

The timing, price and actual number of shares planned to be repurchased under LiveOne’s expanded stock repurchase program will be at the discretion of its management and will depend on a variety of factors, including stock price, general business and market conditions, and alternative investment opportunities. The repurchase program will be executed consistent with LiveOne’s capital allocation strategy, which will continue to prioritize growing LiveOne’s business. The expanded repurchase program is planned to be implemented subject to LiveOne obtaining applicable approvals and consents.

Recent and Q2 Fiscal 2023 Highlights

  • Paid members as of November 9, 2022 increased to 1.8 million, a net increase of approximately 209,000 as compared to June 30, 2022. Total members (paid and free ad-supported) as of November 9, 2022 were 2.6 million.**
  • LiveOne’s wholly-owned subsidiary, PodcastOne, posted record 1H Fiscal 2023 revenue of $17.2 million as U.S. unique monthly audience surpassed 6.7 million in September 2022.
  • As previously announced in January 2021, with the assistance of J.P. Morgan, LiveOne is continuing a process to explore strategic alternatives to enhance shareholder value. Potential alternatives may include, among others, a strategic acquisition, divestiture, merger, sale or other form of business combination. There can be no assurance that LiveOne’s efforts will result in a specific transaction or any particular outcome or its timing.

Q2 Fiscal 2023 Results Summary Discussion

For Q2 Fiscal 2023, LiveOne posted revenue of $23.5 million versus $21.9 million in the same period in the prior year. The increase was largely due to increased membership revenue from continued paid membership growth. The audio division had record revenue of $21.1 million in Q2 Fiscal 2023 compared to $18.7 million in the same period in the prior year.

Q2 Fiscal 2023 Operating Loss was ($1.0) million compared to a ($9.7) million loss in Q1 Fiscal 2022. The $8.7 million decrease in Operating Loss was largely a result of improved Contribution Margins* along with reduced operating expenses.

Q2 Fiscal 2023 Adjusted EBITDA* was $4.4 million, as compared to Q2 Fiscal 2022 Adjusted EBITDA* of a ($2.1) million loss. Q2 Fiscal 2023 Adjusted EBITDA* was comprised of Audio Adjusted EBITDA* of $6.5 million, Other Operations Adjusted EBITDA* of ($0.8) million loss and Corporate Adjusted EBITDA* of a ($1.3) million loss. The Audio Adjusted EBITDA* of $6.5 million was driven by improved Contribution Margins* along with decreases in operating expenses.

Capital expenditures for Q2 Fiscal 2023 totaled approximately $0.5 million, which were driven by capitalized software costs associated with development of LiveOne’s integrated music player and pay-per-view services.

As LiveOne has strategically opted to delay any new live tentpole or pay-per-view events until its fiscal year ending March 31, 2024 (“Fiscal 2024”) and utilize its capital and resources to strengthen its balance sheet, buyback stock and focus on the growth of its profitable businesses, the company is updating its guidance for Fiscal 2023 consolidated revenue of between $100 million – $110 million and Fiscal 2023 Adjusted EBITDA* guidance to between $9 million – $11.5 million.

* About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with the accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”), we present Contribution Margin (Loss) and Adjusted Earnings Before Interest Tax Depreciation and Amortization (“Adjusted EBITDA”), which are non-GAAP financial measures, as measures of our performance. The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, or superior to, operating loss and or net income (loss) or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP or as an alternative to net cash provided by operating activities or any other measures of our cash flows or liquidity.

We use Contribution Margin (Loss) and Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate the performance of our operating segment. We believe that information about these non-GAAP financial measures assists investors by allowing them to evaluate changes in the operating results of our business separate from non-operational factors that affect operating income (loss) and net income (loss), thus providing insights into both operations and the other factors that affect reported results. Adjusted EBITDA is not calculated or presented in accordance with GAAP. A limitation of the use of Adjusted EBITDA as a performance measure is that it does not reflect the periodic costs of certain amortizing assets used in generating revenue in our business. Accordingly, Adjusted EBITDA should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for operating income (loss), net income (loss), and other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP. Furthermore, this measure may vary among other companies; thus, Adjusted EBITDA as presented herein may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

Contribution Margin (Loss) is defined as Revenue less Cost of Sales. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, other (income) expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization and before (a) non-cash GAAP purchase accounting adjustments for certain deferred revenue and costs, (b) legal, accounting and other professional fees directly attributable to acquisition activity, (c) employee severance payments and third party professional fees directly attributable to acquisition or corporate realignment activities, (d) certain non-recurring expenses associated with legal settlements or reserves for legal settlements in the period that pertain to historical matters that existed at acquired companies prior to their purchase date and a one-time minimum guarantee to effectively terminate a live events distribution agreement post COVID-19, (e) depreciation and amortization (including goodwill impairment, if any), and (f) certain stock-based compensation expense. Management does not consider these costs to be indicative of our core operating results.

With respect to projected full year 2023 Adjusted EBITDA, a quantitative reconciliation is not available without unreasonable efforts due to the high variability, complexity and low visibility with respect to purchase accounting adjustments, acquisition-related charges and legal settlement reserves excluded from Adjusted EBITDA. We expect that the variability of these items to have a potentially unpredictable, and potentially significant, impact on our future GAAP financial results.

For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the tables entitled “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measure to GAAP Measure” included at the end of this release.
