BEAVERTON, OR--(Marketwired - Oct 22, 2014) - Digimarc Corporation (NASDAQ: DMRC) reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2014.
Third Quarter 2014 Results
Revenue for the third quarter of 2014 totaled $6.9 million compared to $7.4 million in the same quarter a year-ago. The decrease was due to lower license revenue primarily due to the scheduled completion of the quarterly license fee payments from The Nielsen Company in the first quarter of 2014.
Operating loss for the third quarter of 2014 totaled $3.2 million compared to operating loss of $2.0 million in the same quarter a year-ago. The operating loss was primarily due to lower license revenue and continued investment in the company's product development and sales growth initiatives, mainly focused on Digimarc Discover and Barcode.
Net loss for the third quarter of 2014 totaled $2.0 million or $(0.28) per diluted share compared to a net loss of $0.8 million or $(0.12) per diluted share in the third quarter of 2013.
At September 30, 2014, cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities totaled $24.7 million compared to $27.9 million at June 30, 2014.
