  • Positive operating cash flow of $0.4 million
  • Third quarter revenues increased by 16.5%
  • Bookings increased by 16.7% over the comparable 2013 period (a fourth consecutive quarter of revenue growth)
  • Positive Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $155,000, an improvement of approximately $1.2 million year over year and $93,000 sequentially
  • Net loss of $218,000, an improvement of $1.5 million year over year and $42,000 sequentially
  • Increased active subscriber count by 30% in the first nine months of 2014
  • New subscription transactions increased approximately 34% in the nine month period, compared to the same period in 2013
  • Commenced development of a new mobile-only app for iOS

Snap's Chief Executive Officer, Clifford Lerner, commented, "We are delighted to have successfully achieved the target we announced to the market in January 2014, that Snap would deliver positive cash flow in the quarter ended September 30, 2014. The $377 thousand of cash generated from operations for the quarter ended September 30, 2014 contributed to an increase in cash of approximately 67% during the quarter ended September 30, 2014. The business growth and discipline that got us here has also delivered two consecutive quarters of positive Adjusted EBITDA."

Snap's Chief Operating Officer, Alex Harrington, adds, "Snap also invested significantly in future growth in the most recent quarter. Though the Company expects future gains in AYI subscription revenue, the vision for Snap includes growing from a single application to a portfolio of applications. The Company undertook several initiatives to position itself to scale the business across multiple dimensions."

Those initiatives include launching optional premium add-on features, diversifying the company's marketing sources to expand its reach, increasing the prominence of the company's native mobile apps to consumers, and beginning development on a mobile-only iOS dating app that targets younger users.

Lerner concluded, "We are excited to hit our financial objectives and deliver on our promises to the market. We have an exciting roadmap ahead of us for AYI, with the goal of improving retention and revenue generation. And with the prospect of new application releases, the future is bright for Snap."
