Digimarc Reports Second Quarter 2018 Financial Results

BEAVERTON, Ore., Aug. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Digimarc Corporation (NASDAQ: DMRC), the inventor of the Intuitive Computing Platform (ICP™) featuring Digimarc Barcode, reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Second Quarter 2018 Financial Results

Revenue for the second quarter of 2018 totaled $5.4 million compared to $­­5.6 million in the same quarter a year-ago. The decrease in revenue was due to lower license revenues reflecting the impact of amending an existing license agreement in the third quarter of 2017 whereby the company waived all future royalty obligations in one of the licensed fields of use in exchange for an upfront $3.5 million license fee.

Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2018 totaled $11.5 million compared to $10.5 million in the same quarter a year-ago. The increase in operating expenses was primarily due to higher investment in sales and marketing as the company continues to address important opportunities in market development and delivery of Digimarc Discover and Digimarc Barcode.

Operating loss for the second quarter of 2018 totaled $8.3 million compared to $7.1 million in the same quarter a year-ago. The higher operating loss was primarily due to higher operating expenses and lower license revenue. 

Net loss for the second quarter of 2018 totaled $8.0 million or $(0.71) per diluted share compared to a net loss of $6.9 million or $(0.68) per diluted share in the same quarter a year-ago.

At quarter-end, cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities totaled $56.8 million, compared to $63.7 million at March 31, 2018.
