NEW YORK - November 9, 2016 - FORM Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: FH), a diversified holding company focused on acquiring, investing in and developing small to mid-market businesses, today announced operating results for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission as well as provided an update on the acquisition of XpresSpa and other ongoing operations.

XpresSpa

  • XpresSpa provides air travellers with premium health and wellness services, as well as a branded line of exclusive luxury travel products and accessories at its 51 locations across 21 major airports in three countries. During the third quarter of 2016, XpresSpa announced that it opened its fourth spa location at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) in Texas and its first spa location at the Dubai International Airport (DXB) in the United Arab Emirates. The company's pipeline of RFP's and new store openings remains strong with four new stores planned for the remainder of the year and an additional two for Q1 2017.
     
  • On August 8, 2016, we entered into a definitive agreement to acquire 100% of XpresSpa. The transaction, which has been approved by FORM Holdings' and XpresSpa's respective Boards of Directors, is subject to closing conditions and approval by the FORM Holdings stockholders at our annual meeting, which is scheduled for November 28, 2016. We expect to close the acquisition immediately after the stockholders meeting.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2016, XpresSpa generated over $32.4 million of revenue compared to $29.2 million of revenue in the nine months ended September 30, 2015. During the third quarter of 2016 the company generated $11.9 million of revenue compared to $10.3 million in the third quarter of 2015.

Operating Results for the Quarter Ended September 30, 2016

  • We generated total revenue of $16.5 million YTD 2016 and $3.1 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 compared to $0.2 million YTD 2015 and no revenue generated for the quarter ended September 30, 2015.
     
  • Excluding non-cash expenses, the net operating loss was $3.2 million YTD 2016 and $3.1 million for the quarter ended September 2016. In the prior year, net operating loss, excluding non-cash expenses, was approximately $18.4 million YTD 2015 and $7.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2015. The non-cash expenses were primarily related to stock-based compensation and amortization and impairment of intangible assets related to the Company's intellectual property segment.
     
  • Our Group Mobile operating segment generated $5.5 million of revenue YTD 2016 and $1.8 million of revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2016, with the third quarter seasonally the slowest sales quarter of the year. In the five weeks since the quarter end, we have received orders in excess of $2.1 million of products and services and we continue to guide for 2016 revenues of $12.5 million, which represents an approximate 135% increase over total revenues of $5.3 million in fiscal 2015. We anticipate that the rate of orders will increase as we move through the fourth quarter, which is the largest ordering period for many of our customers. In addition, the third quarter saw the launch of our partnerships and offerings for body-worn video as well as our services offering, both of which will represent higher margin and recurring revenues as we move into 2017.
     
  • Our FLI Charge operating segment launched its consumer product line on Indiegogo, a crowdfunding platform, on June 15, 2016, and has generated approximately $225,000 of pre-sales in the form of orders, ranking FLI Charge's campaign in the top 400, or the top one-tenth of one percent, of the more than 550,000 campaigns that have launched on Indiegogo since its inception. Tooling for FLI Charge's product line is complete and manufacturing inventory is underway. FLI Charge will be fulfilling pre-orders in November 2016. In addition we have signed an MOU with Papp Plastics, a tier-1 auto parts manufacturer. During the fourth quarter of 2016, FLI Charge's management team has been focused on expanding the distribution of its consumer products and generating additional licenses in addition to those that it already has in the automotive, education and hospitality markets.
     
  • Our Intellectual Property operating segment generated $11.0 million of revenue YTD 2016 and $1.4 million of revenue during the quarter ended September 30, 2016. The revenue was derived from one-time licensing payments from several licensees.
  • As of September 30, 2016, we had approximately $26.0 million of current assets, of which $21.7 million was cash, compared to $28.4 million of current assets as of June 30, 2016, of which $27.4 was cash. The change in net current assets is partially driven by cash used in exercising an early repayment option of a pre-existing note in the amount of $2.0 million. We do not have any outstanding debt as of September 30, 2016.
