VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/07/13 -- PNI Digital Media (TSX:PN)(OTCBB:PNDMF) ("PNI" or the "Company"), the leading innovator in digital media solutions for retailers, reported financial results for the fiscal 2012 full year and fourth quarter ended September 30th, 2012 and discussed key operational development for the year.

"This past year we evolved the Company to position ourselves for the future markets we believe are integral to the growth of PNI," said Kyle Hall, Chief Executive Officer of PNI Digital Media. "As we saw in the past, once the investments were made we turned our focus to rolling out customers and improving operational efficiencies. We have a proven track record in these aspects of the business and will utilize these strengths to further the ambitions of the Company. Furthermore, we plan to continue to invest in driving strong organic growth with our retail partners, who in aggregate transacted $236.2 million in online sales over our platform this year."

    Corporation.

    CVS/pharmacy. 
--  Announced second generation of PNI Connected Kiosk(TM) software.

    period last year. 
--  Processed a record 19.1 million transactions over the PNI Digital Media
    Platform, an improvement of 4% from the same period last year.

Fiscal 2012 Full Year Financial Highlights


--  Revenue for the year of $22.7 million compared to $23.7 million in
    fiscal 2011. The majority of change in year on year revenue was due to a
    $0.7 million decrease in one-time software installation fees from the
    previous year. 
--  Transactional revenue was $17.7million, compared to $18.1M for the same
    period last year. 
--  Transactional revenue comprised 78% of total revenue for the year. 
--  Generated a loss after income taxes of $4.1 million for the year,
    compared to a profit of $1.1 million in fiscal 2011. $1.8 million of the
    loss resulted from the Company recording income tax expense, compared to
    the recognition of an income tax recovery of $1.3 million during fiscal
    2011. 
--  Also contributing to the current period loss was non-cash impairment
    charges of $77,000 and $540,000 recorded in relation to our goodwill and
    intangible assets. These non-cash charges relate primarily to
    underperforming revenues associated with previously capitalized costs
    for our social stationery product offering, as well as changes in
    estimates in relation to the recoverability of goodwill. 
--  Generated non-IFRS adjusted EBITDA1 of $1.5 million, compared to $3.6
    million in fiscal 2011. 
--  The Company ended the year with $4.6 million in cash and cash

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.
