"Augme's one-stop mobile marketing and mobile advertising services, now sold exclusively under the Hipcricket brand name, continued to gain traction among branded enterprises, retailers and agencies during the third quarter," said Paul Arena, Chief Executive Officer of Augme Technologies, Inc. "New business momentum has been growing and coupled with our 95% customer retention rate, resulted in new order bookings of $5.3 million, and quarter end backlog of over $13.0 million."

Mr. Arena continued, "As the shift of media dollars toward mobile channels continues to accelerate, we are focused on driving adoption of our AD LIFE™ end-to-end mobile marketing platform that is both supported by our patented technology and scalable. At the same time, we are pursuing an Enterprise OEM strategy to propel cost-efficient revenue generation. The combination of a hyper fast-growing mobile media market, a growth strategy backed by proven high-end capabilities for user engagements and a growing pipeline of contract opportunities gives us confidence that we are on the cusp of rapidly scaling revenue and will achieve cash flow break-even during fiscal 2013."


Third Quarter Financial Results

For the third fiscal quarter ended November 30, 2011, the Company reported revenue of $4,424,540, an increase of approximately 419%, compared to revenue of $853,169 for the third fiscal quarter ended November 30, 2010 and an increase of 244% compared to revenue of $1,287,122 for the second fiscal quarter ended August 31, 2011.

Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) license revenue accounted for 60% of third quarter revenue, Mobile Advertising Solutions accounted for 20% of quarterly revenue and Other revenue, which includes non-recurring revenue such as client development work and shorter term licenses, accounted for the remaining 20% of revenue.

Gross profit (revenues minus cost of revenues) increased 515% to $3,023,882, or 68% of revenue, for the third quarter of fiscal 2012, versus gross profit of $491,820, or 57.6% of revenue, for the third fiscal quarter ended November 30, 2010 and compared with $874,775, or 68.0% of revenue, for the second quarter of fiscal 2012. The increase in the gross margin represents the current mix of business and cost efficiencies.

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased 299% to $11,370,845 for the third quarter of fiscal 2012, versus SG&A expenses of $2,847,569 for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 ended November 30, 2010 and compared with $6,758,455 for the second quarter of fiscal 2012 ended August 31, 2011. The increase in operating expenses includes the added expenses of JAGTAG and Hipcricket and includes transition and consolidation expenses which are expected to taper off during the fourth fiscal quarter.

The Company recorded a net loss of $10,548,140, or $0.12 per share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2012, versus a net loss of $2,616,951, or $0.04 per share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 and compared to a net loss of $6,179,248, or $0.09 per share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2012. The net loss for the third quarter of 2012 included non-cash stock, option and warrant expense totaling $2,680,794, versus non-cash stock, option and warrant expense of $615,381 for the third quarter of fiscal 2011, and compared to non-cash stock, option and warrant expense of $2,032,954 for the second quarter of fiscal 2012.

Nine Month Financial Results

For the nine months ended November 30, 2011, the Company's revenue increased 272% to $6,917,448, versus $1,858,209 for the first nine months of the previous fiscal year. Gross profit increased 369% to $4,741,511 (69% of revenue) for the nine months ended November 30, 2011, versus $1,011,822 (54.5% of revenue) for the nine months ended November 30, 2010.

The Company recorded a net loss of $19,919,328 million, or $0.28 per share, for the first nine months of fiscal 2012, compared to a net loss of $9,265,483, or $0.16 per share, for the corresponding period of the previous fiscal year. The net loss for the first nine months of fiscal 2012 included non-cash stock, option and warrant expense totaling $5,531,334 million, compared to $4,990,281 for the first nine months of fiscal 2011. Depreciation and amortization expense was $1,789,776 for the first nine months of fiscal 2012 compared to $752,925. The increase is primarily a result of the amortization of intangibles related to the acquisitions or Hipcricket and JAGTAG.

Business Outlook

Management expects revenue for fiscal 2012 ending February 29, 2012 to be approximately $13.0 million and believes that the Company can achieve positive cash flow during fiscal 2013.

Additionally, the company expects to continue to report sequentially increased revenues with large enterprise customers going forward, as its leadership position within the mobile marketing industry has been solidified with the completed integration of JAGTAG and Hipcricket.

The Company's management remains confident in Augme's ability to monetize its intellectual property portfolio through litigation and licensing activities.
