Point.360 Announces Third Fiscal Quarter Results
  By PR Newswire

LOS ANGELES, May 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --áPoint.360 (OTCQX: PTSX), a leading provider of integrated media management services, today announced results for the three and nine month periods ended March 31, 2017.á For the quarter, the Company's sales were $6.7 million generating a loss of $2.4 million, or $0.19 per share.á The Company also reported negative earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and non-cash charges (EBITDAN*) of $1.3 million for the period. For the nine month period, the Company's sales were $21.2 million generating a net loss of $8.4 million, or $0.66 per share. The Company also reported negative EBITDAN* of $5.6 million for the nine month period.

Haig S. Bagerdjian, the Company's Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer said:á "In the third quarter, the Company continued to reduce operating costs in response to lower revenues. We also closed down our Movie Q business at the end of the quarter as the remaining two store leases were scheduled to expire on April 30. Excluding the related non-cash impairment of Movie Q assets, operating costs in the third quarter and first nine months fiscal 2017 have decreased $2.4 million and $6.3 million, respectively from the same periods last year."

Mr. Bagerdjian continued: "Additional services have been combined among our three facilities. Although third quarter revenues have increased when compared to the second fiscal quarter, and our localization, specialized quality control and TV Post businesses are growing, near-term liquidity will remain a challenge. We will continue to take steps to manage cash."


Revenues

Revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 totaled $6.7 million compared to $8.9 million in the same quarter last year.á Revenues for the nine months ended March 31, 2017 were $21.2 million compared to $29.3 million last year.

Selling, General and Administrative and Other Expenses

For the third quarter of fiscal 2017, SG&A expenses were $3.4 million, or 51% of sales, compared to $4.1 million, or 46% of sales, in the third quarter of last year.á For the current nine month period, SG&A expenses were $11.4 million (54% of sales), compared to $13.2 million (45% of sales) last year. SG&A for the nine month period ended March 31, 2016 includes approximately $0.3 million of legal, accounting and other expenses related to the MVF purchase transaction.

Impairment of Long Lived Assets

Due to declining revenues and the expiration of the remaining two store leases, the Company decided to abandon the Movie Q business as of March 31, 2017 and write off the remaining Movie Q assets, resulting in an impairment charge of $0.4 million in the three and nine months ended March 31, 2017.
