IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 24, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DigitalPost Interactive, Inc. (OTCBB:DGLP) ( http://www.dglp.com ), a leader in the digital media-sharing and social networking space, reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2010.

Third-quarter revenues were $176,900, compared to $371,600 in third-quarter 2009. The decline was due in part to a lower number of recurring subscribers which led to a $97,000 decrease in subscription fees. Professional services fees fell $97,700 to $106,700, from $204,400 in third-quarter 2009. The decline was partially offset by revenues consolidated from Rovion commencing September 1, 2010.

DigitalPost Chief Executive Michael Sawtell commented: "We continued to experience declining revenues from our digital media sharing business, but those declines were partially offset by new revenues from the acquisition of Rovion, our rich media advertising business unit.

"Based on recent performance, Rovion is exhibiting the potential for significant revenue growth," Sawtell continued. "During September and October, we grew Rovion's bookings to $151,000 and $184,000 respectively, compared to average monthly bookings of $125,000 for the first eight months of 2010. If we continue on this favorable trend, our annual bookings run rate could exceed $2.0 million. While bookings represent business in the pipeline and not immediate revenue and cash flow, the longer-term potential for Rovion appears substantial."

Third-quarter comparative summary:

Revenues: Total revenue was $176,900 and $371,600 for the third quarters of 2010 and 2009, respectively, representing a decrease of $194,700. The change was due to a decrease in subscription revenues of $97,000 during third-quarter 2010, compared to the same period last year, and a decrease in professional services revenue of $97,700 during third-quarter 2010, compared to the same period last year. Third-quarter 2010 professional services revenue included revenue of $83,000 from Rovion, which was acquired on August 31, 2010:

Subscribers: Subscription revenues for third-quarter 2010 were $70,200, compared to $167,200 during the same period last year. Subscription revenues decreased $97,000 due to a decrease in the number of recurring subscribers to 9,701 on September 30, 2010, from 15,288 subscribers a year ago.

Professional services: Professional services revenue for third-quarter 2010 was $106,700, and included $83,000 from Rovion, compared to $204,400 during the same period last year. The decrease was due to continuing work on software development contracts entered into during the first and second quarters of 2010 that were different in scope and lower in total contract amount, compared to the same period last year. Consolidation of Rovion revenues began on September 1, 2010.

Net loss and non-cash items: Net loss for third-quarter 2010 was $630,900, compared to a net loss of $600,900 in third-quarter 2009. Net loss for third-quarter 2010 included non-cash items consisting of: $43,100 in stock-based compensation, $109,200 of amortization of debt discounts, and $33,300 of depreciation and amortization expense. Net loss for the third-quarter 2009 included non-cash items consisting of $171,500 in stock-based compensation, $155,000 of amortization of debt discounts, $187,100 of beneficial conversion liability, and $42,800 of depreciation and amortization.

Cash used in operations: Net cash used by operating activities for the quarter was $447,900, compared to $75,600 in third-quarter 2009. The increase was primarily due to lower non-cash charges during third-quarter 2010, compared to third-quarter 2009—stock compensation expense declined $128,400; amortization of debt discounts fell by $45,800, and beneficial conversion liability was zero, compared to $187,100.
