Mandalay Media Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2010 Financial Results
Nov 16, 2009 (07:11 PM EST)


LOS ANGELES, Nov. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Mandalay Media, Inc. (the "Company" or "Mandalay Media") announced today results for its 2010 fiscal year second quarter ended September 30, 2009.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2009, Mandalay Media recorded EBITDA, excluding stock option expense and restructuring charges ("Adjusted EBITDA"), a non-GAAP measure, of $1.2 million. This compares to Adjusted EBITDA loss of $1.4 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2009.

"We were extremely pleased with the progress made in this quarter," said Ray Schaaf, President of Mandalay Media. "We are in the process of a number of major initiatives to bring Mandalay to profitability and to create new revenue streams by launching new products. We will build the business both organically as well as through targeted strategic acquisitions."

A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results has been provided in the financial statement tables included in this press release. An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading "Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

The following forward-looking statements reflect expectations as of November 16, 2009. Results may be materially different and are affected by many factors, such as: consumer demand for mobile entertainment and specifically the Company's mobile products; consumer demand for mobile handsets, including the next-generation platforms; carriers' and distributors' marketing to consumers, including premium deck placement; continued uncertainty in the global economic environment; carriers' and other distributors' maintaining their networks and provisioning systems to enable consumer purchases; development delays on the Company's products; competition in the industry; changes in foreign exchange rates; the effective tax rate and other factors detailed in this release and in the Company's SEC filings.

As previously stated, for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2010, the Company is currently on a run rate to generate revenue in excess of $40 million and Adjusted EBITDA, as defined above, in excess of $4 million. The Company expects organic growth, operating efficiencies and cost reductions throughout the year to deliver improved results for fiscal 2010.

To supplement the Company's unaudited consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, Mandalay Media uses certain non-GAAP measures of financial performance. The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation from, as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company's results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP. The primary non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company is Adjusted EBITDA. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude the following items from Mandalay Media's unaudited consolidated statements of operations:

Mandalay Media may consider whether other significant non-recurring items that arise in the future should also be excluded in calculating the non-GAAP financial measures it uses.

The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when taken together with the corresponding GAAP financial measures, provide meaningful supplemental information regarding Mandalay Media's performance by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of the Company's core business, operating results or future outlook. Mandalay Media's management uses, and believes that investors benefit from referring to, these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing the Company's operating results, as well as when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate comparisons of Mandalay Media's performance to prior periods.

In the financial tables below, Mandalay Media has provided a reconciliation of the most comparable GAAP financial measure to each of the historical non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release.
