Onstream Media Corporation Reports Fiscal 2005 Second Quarter Results

POMPANO BEACH, FL – May 24, 2005 – Onstream Media Corporation ( OTC: ONSM), a leading online service provider of on-demand, rich media communications, announced today its financial results for the second quarter ended March 31, 2005.

Second Quarter Ended March 31, 2005 Financial Results Highlights:

  • Revenue: Revenue increased approximately 7% to approximately $1.94 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2005, from approximately $1.81 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2004.

  • Net Loss: Net loss was approximately $2,417,000, or $0.30 per share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2005, compared to a net loss of approximately $945,000, or $0.22 per share for the second quarter of fiscal 2004.

The increased net loss recorded for the second quarter of the fiscal year 2005 partially reflects higher expense levels relating to the expansion of the Company’s employee staffing levels and its sales and management infrastructure in order to facilitate current and future growth in connection with the company’s merger with Onstream Media, the acquisition of its digital asset management services business and the development and launch of its Digital Media Services Platform (DMSP). In addition, the fiscal 2005 second quarter net loss included non-cash expenses totaling approximately $1.6 million, which includes the write-off of unamortized discount on debentures and notes payable, depreciation, amortization, and several items payable with shares and options, including professional fees, executive severance, interest and penalty fees related to a prior financing.

Randy Selman, president and Chief Executive Officer of Onstream Media, stated, “The Company’s growth during the recently ended quarter, as compared to the corresponding period of the prior year, was below that experienced during the first quarter of fiscal 2005. This was due primarily to the effects of seasonality in our digital asset management services business, reflecting, in large part, the end of the NFL regular season in early 2005. We expect revenue levels in this business segment to increase during the second half of the fiscal year as usage by our other existing customers increases and as our customer base expands.”

Selman continued, “We are also pleased to note that due to continued growth in the sales of higher priced video webcasts, our webcasting business was able to record an increase in revenues. The average revenue per webcast expanded to approximately $670 from approximately $480 during the same period in fiscal 2004.” Selman added, “With the third quarter launch of our Digital Media Services Platform (DMSP), as well as the launch of our new corporate web site, which provides both e-commerce functionality and access to the DMSP, the Company has expanded its enterprise-class product line. With our marketing effort now in place, we look forward to capitalizing on our expanded set of growth opportunities.” Onstream recently became aware of potential rescission rights related to the convertible securities it issued in December 2004. The Company has determined that the potential assertion by investors of rescission rights is not probable, based on its determination that the factors and/or conditions that would encourage an attempt to assert such potential rights are significantly outweighed by the factors and/or conditions that would discourage an attempt to assert such potential rights. As of March 31, 2005, the Company has reclassified the related amounts previously included in equity under the balance sheet caption "equity securities subject to potential rescission".
