NeuLion Reports 37% Increase in Revenue for Second Quarter 2011

(August 11, 2011)

PLAINVIEW, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 08/11/11 -- NeuLion, Inc. (TSX: NLN), the true end-to-end technology service provider for delivering live and on-demand content to any Internet-enabled device, today announced financial results for the second quarter of 2011. Revenue increased 37% to $10.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011 as compared to the same period a year ago, due to strong organic growth in our services revenue.

Second Quarter Financial Highlights (all amounts are in U.S. dollars):

  • Services Revenue, which is our recurring revenue stream, increased by $2.1 million, or 32%, as compared to the same period a year ago.
  • Cost of Services Revenue, exclusive of depreciation and amortization, improved as a percentage of Services Revenue, by 4%, as compared to the same period a year ago.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA Loss (as defined below) improved by $1.8 million, or 53%, as compared to the same period a year ago, and Consolidated Net Loss improved by $2.4 million, or 42%, as compared to the same period a year ago.

"Management is pleased with the company's impressive 37% increase in revenue and operational success that we have achieved during the second quarter," stated Nancy Li, Chief Executive Officer of NeuLion, Inc. "Our results were positively impacted by strong organic growth of $2.3 million, of which 91% is from our recurring services revenue stream. The continued growth in our sustainable and predictable recurring revenue will provide the foundation for the future financial success of our company. During the quarter we successfully added numerous new agreements to provide multiple partners with 'TV Everywhere' solutions as well as on-demand programming. In addition, we also entered into agreements with multiple professional sports franchises as well as colleges and universities to assist them in driving content to their global fan bases. We remain focused on increasing sales, expanding margins and improving overall profitability."

Second Quarter Operational Highlights:


  • Announced the widespread adoption of its Live Highlight Editor, a tool that gives sports teams, leagues, and colleges the capability to cut, clip, and publish game highlights from live broadcasts and instantly publish them globally to any Internet-enabled device.
    • This tool benefits sports teams, leagues and college athletic departments as it condenses highlight packages and makes for easier syndication.
  • Formed, as the first of its kind, a College Advisory Board that brings together college executives and digital partners with the goal of providing increased customer service and a more robust fan experience.
    • Joining NeuLion on the initial College Advisory Board are Iowa State University, Louisiana State University, Duke University, The Big 12 Conference, Mississippi State University, Dartmouth College and James Madison University.
  • Announced a new multi-year partnership with ZON TVCabo that will use NeuLion's platform to enhance the reach and penetration of ZON's television content with new forms of distribution. As the main Pay-TV cable operator in Portugal, ZON serves over 1.6 million subscribers. NeuLion will provide ZON with a complete "TV Everywhere" service delivered through various platforms. The launch will allow ZON's live and on-demand content to reach viewers, for the first time ever, on multiple consumer devices.
  • NeuLion's digital platform was chosen to power the newly launched websites for DIRECTV Sports Networks' three regional sports channels at ROOTSPORTS.com. The three networks, formerly FSN Northwest, FSN Rocky Mountain and FSN Pittsburgh, were re-branded ROOTSPORTS™ in April 2011 with the start of the Major League Baseball season.
  • Renewed agreement with the Central Hockey League to provide live streaming video services for the 2011-12 season. The online video service, CHL-TV, will offer hockey fans live and on-demand coverage of CHL regular season and playoff games.
  • Partnered with the Canadian Hockey League to deliver live coverage of the 2011 MasterCard Memorial Cup to Android, iPhone, iPad and BlackBerry devices.

Financial Results for the six months ended June 30, 2011:

As of June 30, 2011 we had $9.3 million in cash and cash equivalents.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

We report non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA loss because it is a key measure used by management to evaluate our results and make strategic decisions about our company, including potential acquisitions. Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA loss represents consolidated net loss before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, unrealized gain/loss on derivatives, investment income, non-controlling interests and foreign exchange gain/loss. This measure does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP) and therefore is unlikely to be comparable to the calculation of similar measures used by other companies, and should not be viewed as an alternative to measures of financial performance or changes in cash flows calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

The below table reconciles our non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA loss to its most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measure, consolidated net loss:
