SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - August 15, 2014) - EFactor Group Corp. (OTCQB: EFCT) ("EFactor Group Corp." or "the Company"), the owner of a group of entrepreneur-focused service companies and EFactor.com, a niche social network providing content and resources for entrepreneurs worldwide, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014.
Second Quarter 2014 Highlights and Recent Events
- Membership services revenues continued to increase on a sequential and year-over-year comparison.
- Advertising revenues on EFactor.com reach $30,645, a three-fold sequential increase versus the first quarter of the year and a 100% increase year over year.
- Total number of subscribers on EFactor.com increase 20% to more than 1.2 million.
- In July, EFactor Group Corp. closed four strategic acquisitions to increase support and services to entrepreneurs; HT Skills, Ltd., Member Digital, Inc., Business Growth Systems, Ltd., and GroupCard, BV.
"Now that we have completed our targeted four acquisitions, we will re-focus our attention on building each of our business units and significantly expanding the subscriber base of EFactor.com, which will in turn have a positive impact on the new acquisitions' revenue," began Adriaan Reinders, CEO of EFactor Group Corp. "Each of our acquisitions have been carefully chosen to match our ethos at EFactor which is a focus on; knowledge, business development, cost reduction and funding for entrepreneurs. We were pleased to see an uptick in both our number of subscribers and the services they are buying from EFactor such as mentoring and participation at our live events and will continue to work on increasing these numbers. We have also seen a boost in advertising revenues in the quarter from EFactor.com which helped offset a year-over-year decline in our advisory services at EQ Mentor," Reinders concluded.
EFactor Group Corp. currently generates revenue from four primary sources: (1) member services; (2) advertising; (3) advisory services; and (4) public relations. For the second quarter of the year, combined revenues for the period ended June 30, 2014 was $148,586 compared to $116,545 in the first quarter of the year and $228,175 in the corresponding period a year ago, a sequential increase of 27.5% and decrease of 53.6% year-over-year. Specifically, EQmentor revenues which were $114,343 in the second quarter of 2013 were merely $1,437 in the second quarter of 2014. During the first and second quarter of 2014, EQmentor's service offering was being repositioned for long-term, sustainable growth and a re-launch of their services throughout the second quarter of 2014. EQmentor has reinitiated business relationships with its long-standing clientele, many of which include U.S. blue-chip companies. EQmentor expects to realize these contracts and their revenues in the third and fourth quarter of the year.
Despite the temporary setback in EQmentor's quarterly revenue contribution, EFactor Group's subsidiaries and business lines exceeded expectations. EFactor.com's membership fees were up 16 times year-over-year, adverting sales on EFactor.com totaled approximately $30,654 versus a base of zero in 2013 and public relations revenues from EFactor Group Corp.'s MCC International totaled $106,254. EFactor Group Corp's operating subsidiaries are built around EFactor's social network of entrepreneurs who are subscribers to EFactor.com.
EFactor.com is the Company's flagship operating subsidiary and is one of the leading niche social networks designed to service entrepreneurs with valuable and cost-saving business tools, content, on-line and live events hosted by well-known business leaders, funding strategies, and an active social network of more than 1.3 million entrepreneur-subscribers. In the second quarter of the year, EFactor added 200,000 new subscribers to EFactor.com and an additional 100,000 in July alone. EFactor.com's live events such as Pitch-It-In-Person have hosted more than 483 participants through the first two quarters of the year and is poised to grow this number in the second half of 2014. Events are scheduled on a regular basis in cities worldwide for EFactor.com members.
EFactor continues with the marketing of its unique EScore™ system which is designed to measure entrepreneurial process and begin preparing entrepreneurs for raising capital. EScore™ members can benchmark their skill level and progress in five distinct business categories; Finance, Technology, Sales & Marketing, Leadership and last but not least -- Social Value. Through a unique set of questions and tasks, members can not only achieve a score but continue to measure it as they gain experience or bring in valuable members to their team. In addition, EFactor will help each entrepreneur build a strong business based on the information provided through the EScore™ system and unique matching that takes place which helps entrepreneurs build and strengthen a business plan.
Operating expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2014 were $1,085,702 compared to $1,000,029 for the three months ended June 30, 2013. These increases were primarily due to additional depreciation and amortization of the Company's website of $59,228 in 2014 and loss on extinguishment of debt of $32,778.
Interest expense increased to $475,215 for the three month period ended June 30, 2014, compared to $141,041 for the three month period ended June 30, 2013. Interest expenses includes non-cash amortization of $391,318 for share issuance expense to satisfy debtholder enhancements as part of the consideration for entering into these investments. The Company expects to repay or convert into common stock the majority of its outstanding notes subject to the raising further capital and increasing revenues over the course of the next 18 months.
Net loss increased to $1,428,503 from $912,865, for the three month period ended June 30, 2014. The increase in net loss compared to the prior year period is primarily a result of the increase in operating expenses of $85,595 and the increase in interest expense and amortization of debt discount of $334,204, as described above. A component of the increase in operating costs is caused by the need to continue to attract top-notch personnel, which increases our payroll costs.
For the Six Months Ended June 30, 2014
Revenues for the six month period ended June 30, 2014 was $265,131 versus $426,937 for the six month period in 2013. The decrease was directly attributed to revenues from EQmentor which were $250,906 in 2013 versus $2,874 in 2014. As mentioned above, EQmentor has enhanced its service offering, market position, and Website services to more properly market to its blue-chip clientele. The Company expects sales from EQmentor to rebound in the second half of the year.
Offsetting the decline in revenues from EQmentor, revenues from EFactor.com membership services increased 72.4% to $17,969, EFactor.com advertising revenues are up 100% from a base of zero to $42,524, and MCC's public relations revenues are up 30.5% to $198,353 for the six month period ended June 30, 2014.
The Company had $126,326 in cash at June 30, 2014. Accounts receivable were $80,334 and notes receivable were $150,250 on June 30, 2014.
EFactor strengthened its offering to its subscriber base by acquiring four additional operating business to support and serve its customers and to direct EFactor.com subscribers to its portfolio of entrepreneur-focused, operating companies. On a proforma basis, combined revenue contribution to EFactor Group Corp. from the acquisitions are estimated at approximately $6.0 million on a 12-month basis. EFactor Group Corp. acquired;
