Business Highlights

  • Monthly Active Users (MAUs) on the AreYouInterested.com app on Facebook Platform totaled 5.29 million as of September 30, 2012; and

Management Commentary

"The third quarter marked the beginning of a new phase for SNAP as we successfully re-launched AreYouInterested.com as a social discovery product," said SNAP's President and Chief Executive Officer, Clifford Lerner. "I believe we achieved our goal of completely rebuilding and re-launching the product while conserving cash and maintaining a strong balance sheet position during the transition. Toward the end of the quarter we moved into the testing and rapid optimization phase of the re-launch and that process has continued in earnest during the fourth quarter of 2012. We have made meaningful progress with these optimizations and I look forward to communicating some of these exciting developments to investors over the coming weeks and months."  

SNAP's Chief Financial Officer Jon D. Pedersen, Sr. added, "Consistent with our approach during the second quarter, we significantly reduced our rate of spend on traffic acquisition during the third quarter as we were primarily focused on the launch, testing and optimization of the redesigned AreYouInterested.com product.  In turn, this resulted in decreased revenue, bookings, and a decrease in our number of active subscribers as compared to the second quarter of 2012. We expect to increase our advertising and marketing expenditures from current levels towards the end of the fourth quarter 2012 and into the first quarter of 2013 as we begin to build a brand around the redesigned product."

This press release contains "forward-looking statements" made under the "safe harbor" provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 that are based on current expectations, estimates, forecasts and assumptions and are subject to risks and uncertainties. Words such as "anticipate," "assume," "believe," "estimate," "expect," "goal," "intend," "plan," "project," "seek," "target," and variations of such words and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements.  Such forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions that may cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed by the forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, the following: general economic, industry and market sector conditions; the ability to obtain additional financing to implement the Company's long-term growth strategy; the ability to effectively manage the Company's growth; the ability to anticipate and respond to changing consumer trends and preferences; reliance on the Company's chief executive officer and sole director and the Company's ability to attract and hire key personnel; reliance on a very limited number of third party platforms to run the Company's applications and the ability of third party platforms to take action against these applications; the intense competition in the online dating marketplace; the ability to establish and maintain brand recognition; the ability to develop and support successful applications for mobile platforms; the ability to advertise the Company's products through a variety of advertising media; the ability to develop and market new technologies to respond to rapid technological changes; increased governmental regulation of the online dating, social discovery or Internet industries; and circumstances that could disrupt the functioning of the Company's applications and websites.  In evaluating these statements, you should carefully consider these risks and uncertainties and those described under the headings "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" and "Risk Factors" in the Company's most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and other Securities and Exchange Commission filings.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We have provided in this release non-GAAP financial information such as bookings as a supplement to the consolidated financial statements, which are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"). Management uses this non-GAAP financial measure internally in analyzing our financial results to assess operational performance. The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. We believe that both management and investors benefit from referring to this non-GAAP financial measure in assessing our performance and when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. We believe this non-GAAP financial measure is useful to investors because it allows for greater transparency with respect to key financial metrics we use in making operating decisions and because our investors and analysts use such information to help assess the health of our business.

Some limitations of bookings as a financial measure include that:

  • Bookings does not reflect that we defer and recognize revenue from subscription fees and premium sales over the length of the subscription term; and
  • Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate bookings differently or choose not to calculate bookings at all, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these limitations, you should consider bookings along with other financial performance measures, including total revenues, deferred revenue, net income (loss) and our financial results presented in accordance with GAAP

Every successful software product evolves from an idea to an enterprise system. Notably, the same way is passed by the product owner's company. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Oleg Lola, CEO of MobiDev, will provide a generalized overview of the evolution of a software product, the product owner, the needs that arise at various stages of this process, and the value brought by a software development partner to the product owner as a response to these needs.
Most technology leaders, contemporary and from the hardware era, are reshaping their businesses to do software in the hope of capturing value in IoT. Although IoT is relatively new in the market, it has already gone through many promotional terms such as IoE, IoX, SDX, Edge/Fog, Mist Compute, etc. Ultimately, irrespective of the name, it is about deriving value from independent software assets participating in an ecosystem as one comprehensive solution.
