OKLAHOMA CITY, Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Elephant Talk Communications Corp. (NYSE MKT: ETAK) ("Elephant Talk" or the "Company"), a global provider of Software Defined Network Architecture (ET Software DNA® 2.0) platforms and cyber security solutions, today announced total revenue of approximately $6.9 million and record margins* of 88% for the second quarter of 2014. Adjusted EBITDA increased to approximately $553,000 for the quarter.

Elephant Talk Communications' Logo

Mr. Steven van der Velden, Chairman and CEO of Elephant Talk, stated, "We are pleased with the continued increase in our monthly recurring mobile and security revenue which drove sequential growth in our Adjusted EBITDA to approximately $553,000 compared to a negative $949,000 in the second quarter of 2013. We now have over 2.6 million SIMs on our platforms and expect our Adjusted EBITDA to continue to grow as we layer additional SIMs onto our platforms. We are currently on track with the Iusacell migration, working to transition the entire SIM database from old legacy systems in Mexico onto our platform. Our Software DNA® virtualized platform continues to deliver impressive performance and reliability, capabilities that will also become more visible throughout the industry based on our recent global sales collaboration with HP. Together with HP's Integrated Home Subscriber Server technology, we are driving the message that Mobile Network Operators no longer have to be held captive to their legacy infrastructure systems."

Recent Company Highlights:

  • Announced a sales collaboration agreement with HP focused on global sales opportunities for MNOs and MVNOs. The agreement will advance Elephant Talk ET Software DNA® virtualized platform along with HP's Integrated Home Subscriber Server as a key enabling technology for MNOs looking to realize up to 80% of their cost cutting objectives through the adoption of Software Defined Networking technology.
  • Activity at Vodafone in Spain continues to increase including the installation of a new subscriber services test platform awarded to Elephant Talk last month.
  • Zain Saudi Arabia continues to make steady progress on its newly launched Matrix brand, which is hosted on the Elephant Talk platform and has successfully added SIMs to the Elephant Talk platform. Zain expects to launch other new brands by the fourth quarter of 2014.
  • Europrise has just awarded ValidSoft an unprecedented fourth data privacy seal for its Zero Latency Correlation process. Zero Latency Correlation enables ValidSoft to securely extract 'Device Trust' data directly from a device application, in place of, or in conjunction with, data from the mobile network operator.
  • ValidSoft has successfully completed the development and production stage of its 'User Authentication' solution, employing its proprietary voice biometric technology. A number of 'proof of concept' trials of the new solution are underway, both direct and in conjunction with channel partners, in the financial services and enterprise sectors.
  • ValidSoft has completed the simplification of its product portfolio and market messaging and, in support of a more focused go-to-market approach and commercialization strategy, it has commenced the development of a robust partner channel and pipeline-building program.

Recent Financial Highlights:

  • 2014 second quarter revenue totaled approximately $6.9 million, as compared to approximately $5.0 million for the second quarter of 2013, or an increase of approximately 38%.
  • Sequentially, mobile and security revenue in the second quarter of 2014 increased approximately 9% to approximately $6.9 million.
  • The 2014 second quarter margins grew to a record 88% compared to 85% reported in the first quarter of 2014 and approximately 71% reported in the second quarter of 2013.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2014 was $552,940 compared to a loss of $949,095 for the second quarter of 2013. For the first half year 2014 Adjusted EBITDA was $ 844,946 compared to a loss of $ 2,397,936 for the first half year of 2013.

* Non-GAAP financial measures
To supplement the consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, Elephant Talk uses measures of non-GAAP: Adjusted EBITDA and margin. Margin is derived from the statement of operations and comprehensive loss by subtracting cost of service from revenues. These adjustments to the Company's GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and stockholders with a more complete understanding of the Company's underlying operational results, trends and performance.

Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before income and expenses from derivative accounting, such as warrant liabilities and conversion feature expensing, interest income and expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, amortization of deferred financing cost, impairments, non-operating income and expenses and stock-based compensation to, among other things, show a measure of the Company's operating performance.

Management uses these non-GAAP measures to evaluate the Company's financial results, develop budgets, manage expenditures and determine employee compensation. The presentation of additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, net income (loss) or net income (loss) per share determined in accordance with GAAP.

The table at the end of this press release includes a reconciliation of net loss to non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA for the three and six months ended June 30th 2013 and 2014, respectively.

Reconciliation of Net Loss to Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA

In order to provide investors additional information regarding our financial results, the Company is disclosing Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure. The Company employs Adjusted EBITDA, defined as earnings before income and expenses from derivative accounting, such as warrant liabilities and conversion feature expensing, interest income and expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, amortization of deferred financing cost, impairments, non-operating income and expenses and stock-based compensation to, among other things, show a measure of the Company's operating performance. The Company uses Adjusted EBITDA because it removes the impact of items not directly resulting from the Company's core operations, thus allowing the Company to better assess whether the elements of the Company's growth strategy are yielding the desired results. Accordingly, the Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information for investors and others and allows them to better understand and evaluate the Company's operating results.

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using...
