Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Total revenues were US$3.06 million (RMB19.21 million) in the third quarter of 2012, representing an increase of 0.9% from US$3.03 million in the second quarter of 2012 and a decrease of 27.7% from US$4.23 million in the third quarter of 2011.

In the second quarter of 2011, the Company started to generate advertising revenues primarily from performance advertising services using a system called Application Advertisement ("AA"). The performance advertising revenue was realized through an affiliated advertising agent which is under common control of Shanda Interactive Entertainment Limited, the Company's majority shareholder. The Company generated 94.6% of total revenues in the third quarter of 2012 through this affiliated advertising agent, as compared to 94.8% of total revenues in the second quarter of 2012.

Cost of revenues was US$3.66 million (RMB23.02 million) in the third quarter of 2012, remained flat compared to the second quarter of 2012, decreased 33.2% from US$5.48 million in the third quarter of 2011. Gross loss was US$0.61 million (RMB3.81 million) in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to a gross loss of US$0.63 million in the second quarter of 2012 and a gross loss of US$1.25 million in the third quarter of 2011. Non-GAAP gross loss, which is herein defined as a gross loss excluding share-based compensation expenses, was US$0.58 million (RMB3.63 million) in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to a non-GAAP gross loss of US$0.66 million in the second quarter of 2012 and US$1.22 million in the third quarter of 2011.

Operating expenses were US$2.85 million (RMB17.91 million) in the third quarter of 2012, representing an increase of 73.3% from US$1.64 million in the second quarter of 2012 and a decrease of 74.7% from US$11.28 million in the third quarter of 2011. Non-GAAP operating expenses, which is herein defined as operating expenses excluding share-based compensation expenses, were US$2.88 million (RMB18.11 million) in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to non-GAAP operating expenses of US$1.67 million in the second quarter of 2012 and US$10.85 million in the third quarter of 2011. The sequential increase was mainly attributable to (1) a net increase of US$0.61 million (RMB 3.82 million) in litigation expenses due to the second quarter reversal of accrued liabilities related to favorable settlements of copyright infringement and (2) a US$0.47 million (RMB2.95 million) change in bad debt expense due to the decreased collection of accounts receivable previously written down.

Operating loss was US$3.46 million (RMB21.71 million) in the third quarter of 2012, representing an increase of 51.9% from US$2.28 million in the second quarter of 2012 and a decrease of 72.4% from US$12.53 million in the third quarter of 2011. Non-GAAP operating loss, which reflects the exclusion of share-based compensation expenses, was US$3.46 million (RMB21.75 million) in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to the non-GAAP operating loss of US$2.34 million in the second quarter of 2012 and US$12.07 million in the third quarter of 2011.

Net loss was US$3.25 million (RMB20.43 million) in the third quarter of 2012, representing an increase of 120.9% from US$1.47 million in the second quarter of 2012 and a decrease of 75.0% from US$12.98 million in the third quarter of 2011. Non-GAAP net loss, which reflects the exclusion of share-based compensation expenses, was US$3.26 million (RMB20.46 million) in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to US$1.53 million in the second quarter of 2012 and US$12.52 million in the third quarter of 2011. The sequential increase in net loss was primarily attributable to (1) a US$0.73 million (RMB4.59 million) decrease in government subsidy benefits in the third quarter of 2012; (2) the US$0.61 million (RMB3.82 million) net increase in litigation expenses due to the second quarter reversal of accrued liabilities related to favorable settlements of copyright infringement and (3) the US$0.47 million (RMB2.95 million) of changes in bad debt expense. 

Net loss attributable to Ku6 Media was US$3.25 million (RMB20.43 million) in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to US$1.47 million in the second quarter of 2012 and US$12.98 million in the third quarter of 2011. Non-GAAP net loss attributable to Ku6 Media, reflecting the exclusion of share based compensation expenses, was US$3.26 million (RMB20.46 million) in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to the non-GAAP net loss attributable to Ku6 Media of US$1.53 million in the second quarter of 2012 and US$12.52 million in the third quarter of 2011.

Net loss attributable to Ku6 Media per basic and diluted ADS was US$0.07 (RMB0.44) in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to US$0.03 in the second quarter of 2012 and US$0.26 in the third quarter of 2011. Weighted average ADSs used to calculate basic and diluted net loss per ADS were 48.3 million in the third quarter of 2012, 50.2 million in the second quarter of 2012 and 50.2 million in the third quarter of 2011.

Adjusted EBITDA loss, which is herein defined as net loss attributable to Ku6 Media before interest income, interest expenses, income taxes, depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization and write-down of licensed video copyrights), further adjusted for share-based compensation expenses, equity in loss of affiliates and other non-operating items, was US$2.58 million (RMB16.23 million) in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to adjusted EBITDA loss of US$1.48 million in the second quarter of 2012 and US$10.58 million in the third quarter of 2011. The increase was primarily due to the increase in operating expenses.

As of September 30, 2012, the Company had US$12.55 million (RMB78.84 million) in cash and cash equivalents, compared to US$23.28 million as of June 30, 2012. The decrease was primarily due to the cash payment for share repurchase in the amount of US$8.08 million (RMB50.80 million) in the third quarter of 2012.

Recent Business Developments

The Company's Repurchase and Immediate Retirement of Ordinary Shares and ADSs

On July 12 2012, the Company's shareholders approved, at the Annual General Meeting, a repurchase (and retirement thereafter) of certain of the Company's outstanding shares. This repurchase was settled with cash on July 30, 2012. In this transaction, the Company repurchased and immediately retired in the aggregate 269,409,276 ordinary shares formerly held by Mr. Shanyou Li (the original founder and former CEO), Mr. Zhizhong Hao (Former Senior VP), Ms. Xingye Zeng (Former VP of Sales) and Kumella Holdings Limited (an investment entity controlled by Mr. Shanyou Li), at a price of US$ 0.0291 per share, representing a premium to the Company's current per share price (in total, such repurchase amounting to approximately US$7.84 million). The Company also repurchased and immediately retired 79,717 ADSs (each ADS representing 100 ordinary shares) held by Mr. Shanyou Li at a price of US$2.91 per ADS (in total, approximately US$0.23 million), which represented a premium to the then-current share price.

Given the volatile nature of the Company's per-ADS price as an appropriate measure of fair value and the susceptibility of the per-share price to significant changes on small trading volumes, the Company engaged with an independent financial advisor to assist its management in determining the appropriate range indicative of the fair value per ADS. The repurchase price paid fell within an appropriate indicative range of fair value. The Company recorded this transaction via a charge to additional paid in capital for the repurchase amount.

Cooperation with NetEase

In September 2012, the Company entered into an agreement with NetEase, Inc. ("NetEase," NASDAQ: NTES), a well-known internet company in China. Pursuant to the agreement, Ku6 Media will provide technology support for the video related activities on NetEase's microblog platform, including video uploading and video sharing. Meanwhile, NetEase's microblog users will be given access to Ku6 Media video contents via embedded Ku6 Media video players.

Share Repurchase Program of 2011

Pursuant to a share repurchase program announced December 30, 2011, the Company's Board of Directors have authorized the Company to repurchase up to an aggregate of US$3.2 million of its outstanding ADSs from time to time following the date thereof, based on market conditions. As of September 30, 2012, the Company has repurchased 11,100 ADSs from open market under this program.

Forward-looking Statements

This news release contains statements of a forward-looking nature. These statements are made under the "safe harbor" provisions of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. You can identify these forward-looking statements by terminology such as "believes," "could," "expects," "may," "might," "should," "will," or "would," and by similar statements. Forward-looking statements are not historical facts, but instead represent only the Company's beliefs regarding future events, many of which, by their nature, are inherently uncertain and outside of its control. It is possible that the Company's actual results and financial condition may differ, possibly materially, from the anticipated results and financial condition indicated in these forward-looking statements. Some of the risks and important factors that could affect the Company's future results and financial condition include: continued competitive pressures in China's internet video portal market; changes in technology and consumer demand in this market; the risk that Ku6 Media may not be able to control its expenses in the future; regulatory changes in China with respect to the operations of internet video portal websites; the success of Ku6 Media's ability to sell advertising and other services on its websites; and other risks outlined in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission,including the Company's  annual report on Form 20-F. Ku6 Media does not undertake any obligation to update this forward-looking information, except as required under law.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement Ku6 Media's consolidated financial results presented in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"), Ku6 Media uses the following measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the SEC in evaluating its business: non-GAAP gross profit or loss, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP product development expenses, non-GAAP sales and marketing expenses, non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP operating loss, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss attributable to Ku6 Media and adjusted EBITDA loss.  We define non-GAAP gross profit or loss, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP product development expenses, non-GAAP sales and marketing expenses, non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP operating loss, non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss attributable to Ku6 Media as the respective nearest comparable GAAP financial measure excluding share-based compensation expenses. We define adjusted EBITDA loss as net loss attributable to Ku6 Media before interest income, interest expenses, income taxes, depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization and write-down of licensed video copyrights), further adjusted for share-based compensation expenses, equity in loss of affiliates and other non-operating items. We present non-GAAP financial measures because they are used by our management to evaluate our operating performance. We also believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our consolidated results of operations in the same manner as our management and in comparing financial results across accounting periods and to those of our peer companies. A limitation of using non-GAAP financial measures is that non-GAAP measures exclude share-based compensation charges that have been and will continue to be significant recurring expenses in Ku6 Media's business for the foreseeable future.

The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned "Reconciliations of non-GAAP results of operations measures to the nearest comparable GAAP financial measures" at the end of this release.

Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
The 3rd International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that its Call for Papers is now open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
An entirely new security model is needed for the Internet of Things, or is it? Can we save some old and tested controls for this new and different environment? In his session at @ThingsExpo, New York's at the Javits Center, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, reviewed hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal a new risk balance you might not expect. Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, has more than nineteen years' experience managing global security operations and assessments, including a decade of leading incident response and digital forensics. He is co-author of t...
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, will examine why IT must finally fulfill its role in support of its SBUs or face a new round of...
One of the biggest challenges when developing connected devices is identifying user value and delivering it through successful user experiences. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kuniavsky, Principal Scientist, Innovation Services at PARC, described an IoT-specific approach to user experience design that combines approaches from interaction design, industrial design and service design to create experiences that go beyond simple connected gadgets to create lasting, multi-device experiences grounded in people's real needs and desires.
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Bit6 today issued a challenge to the technology community implementing Web Real Time Communication (WebRTC). To leap beyond WebRTC’s significant limitations and fully leverage its underlying value to accelerate innovation, application developers need to consider the entire communications ecosystem.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
