Matomy Media Group | 2016 Interim Results


Interim results for six-month period ended 30 June 2016

Matomy Media Group Ltd., one of the world's leading global marketing technology companies, announces its interim results for the six-month period ended 30 June 2016.

Strong growth in mobile, video, email and domain monetisation activities, driven by enhanced programmatic capabilities

Our results for the first six months of 2016 reflect the evolution of our business into a technology-based digital marketing platform, based mainly on proprietary technologies, with a more comprehensive suite of capabilities, ahead of the transformation identified by Matomy's board of directors in the digital advertising industry. The industry-wide trends that we identified, such as a decline in display advertising expenditure and an increasing requirement for programmatic capabilities, especially in connection to mobile and video advertising, which are Matomy's main growth engines, are now well underway. We are pleased to report that our past investments in diversifying our business model and building a strong technology platform in anticipation of this trend enabled us to generate higher quality revenues ensuring revenue stability.

Mobile in-app revenues grew 144% and video grew 95%, balancing an industry-wide decline in legacy display advertising revenues which now account for only 9% of Matomy's total revenues. Total mobile related revenues grew to 38% compared to 28% in H1 2015, representing growth by 41%.

Our strategic acquisitions, such as Mobfox and Optimatic, have driven stronger revenues in the growth markets of mobile and video, offsetting the predicted decline in display revenues. This has also served to build Matomy's reputation as an innovative provider of digital advertising solutions in a technology-first industry, across an increasing range of media channels. Revenues from mobile and video are expected to provide opportunities for further growth as well as an increasing diversity in our customer base. As programmatic activity increases, revenues for the second half of 2016 are expected to further grow due to a seasonal effect in programmatic ad spending. The Board believes that Matomy is now well positioned in the intersection of what is considered by most as the growth engines of the industry, Mobile, Video and Programmatic, with the majority of the decline in display adverting already occurring. The Board continues to regularly assess changes in the digital advertising market to ensure its strategic plan remains relevant and dynamic.

We remain confident therefore of meeting the full year projections contained in the July 2016 statement.

_________________________

1.       Adjusted gross profit / margin
Adjusted gross profit is a non‑GAAP financial measure that Matomy defines as revenues less direct media costs, which are the direct costs associated with the purchase of digital media. These costs include: payments for digital media based on the revenues Matomy generates from its customers on a revenue‑sharing basis; payments for digital media on a non‑revenue‑sharing basis (CPC or CPM); and serving fees for third‑party platforms.
Matomy believes that adjusted gross profit is a meaningful measure of operating performance because it is frequently used for internal management purposes, indicates the performance of Matomy’s solutions in balancing the goals of delivering results to its customers whilst meeting margin objectives, and facilitates a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting Matomy’s underlying revenues performance.
2.       Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA is a non‑GAAP financial measure that Matomy defines as net income before taxes on income, financial expenses (income), net, equity losses of affiliated companies, net, depreciation and amortization, share‑based compensation expenses and exceptional items. Adjusted EBITDA is a key measure Matomy uses to understand and evaluate its core operating performance and trends, to prepare and approve its annual budget, to develop short‑ and long‑term operating plans and to determine bonus payments to management. In particular, Matomy believes that by excluding share‑based compensation expenses, adjusted EBITDA provides a useful measure for period‑to‑period comparisons of Matomy’s core business. 
3.       Adjusted net income

Adjusted net income is a non GAAP financial measure that Matomy defines as net income before share based compensation expenses and any non-recurring items.1

 

** The H1 2016 and 2015 results include amortisation charges of $3.8 million and $0.6 million, respectively, attributable to the major acquisitions made by Matomy since the start of 2015. Without the effect of these adjustments, the results would have been as follows:

Business and operating highlights

·     Continued growth of strategic business activities:

•              Matomy continues to shift its core business in the direction of high-growth opportunities - especially programmatic mobile and video advertising.  Investments in R&D and the acquisitions of Optimatic, MobFox and Team Internet over the past two years have cemented a leadership position in the intersection of these high-growth areas supporting ongoing, stable revenue growth.

•              Aggregate mobile traffic across all media channels contributed approximately 38% of Group revenue (H1 2015: 28%, reflecting an overall activity growth of 35%), in line with our goal to reach 50% Mobile related revenues by 2017.

•              Mobile in-app (Mobfox) revenue increased 144% to $12.3 million (H1 2015: $5.0 million).

•              Video revenues increased 95% to $49.2 million (H1 2015: $25.2 million).

•              Since the acquisition of Optimatic in Nov 2015, we have made significant advances in the technical and operational integration of Optimatic, which strengthens Matomy's video programmatic advertising capabilities.

•              The company continues to witness strong industry-wide programmatic advertising spend, with a large portion of digital advertising budgets shifted to the second half of the year; therefore we expect that programmatic revenues will increase in H2 2016

•              Revenues generated from aggregate programmatic advertising activity across all media channels increased 41%, accounting for approximately 78% of Group revenue in H1 2016 (H1 2015: 55%); this represents a shift away from revenues attributable to display advertising and toward programmatic channels.

•              Aggregate domain monetisation revenue increased 42% to $30.6 million (H1 2015: $21.6 million), supported by proprietary programmatic capabilities.

•              Email activity revenue grew 9% to $13.3 million (H1 2015: $12.2 million), due to improved data and deliverability capabilities.

•              Launched China- and South Korea-based offices to access the fast-growing APAC market that is a main driver in Mobile.

•              Established partnership between MobFox and Pixalate and Optimatic and Moat, industry leaders in ad fraud protection and data intelligence, to expand and improve MobFox's and Optimatic's ad quality assurance.

Ofer Druker, Chief Executive Officer of Matomy, said:

"During the first half of 2016 we witnessed significant shifts in the digital advertising landscape as display advertising continued to decline while mobile and video advertising significantly increased, as anticipated by our board of directors. Although generally expected the decline in display advertising is occurring across the industry even faster than originally anticipated.  These trends support the direction Matomy has taken over the past few years and its growth plan to leverage the industry-wide transformation through strategic acquisitions and focused product development. 

"Matomy announced in July of this year a clear and very well-defined enhancement to its strategy with a plan to closely integrate our capabilities in Mobile and Video to create a unique capability in the marketplace around Mobile-Video.

"Matomy is increasingly well positioned with ownership of highly-capable technology platforms enabling programmatic mobile and video advertising.  However, we recognize that this industry evolves quickly, and we have increased our product development investment in mobile and video delivered across mobile devices, as we believe these investments will ensure Matomy remains a top tier provider of digital advertising.  

"We have made meaningful progress towards this goal through significantly advancing the integration of Optimatic, our leading U.S.-based programmatic video advertising provider.  With Optimatic, Matomy not only offers enhanced capabilities for the fastest growing format for advertising (video), but also realizes significant synergies through robust industry partnerships and a footprint from which to build our presence in the core growth market of the U.S..

"We have also significantly advanced our mobile technology offering and have achieved several major milestones including (1) the launch of myDSP, a self-service DSP that enables customers to maximize their ROI and budget when buying mobile media, (2) the launch of mtmy, our mobile performance agency utilizing the full spectrum of Matomy capabilities for performance-minded advertisers, and (3) desirable new product offerings that increase the quality of our media resulting from partnerships with other leading technology providers," concluded Mr. Druker.

CHAIRMAN and CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER'S STATEMENT

Introduction

Our results in the first six months of 2016 reflect the evolution of our business and the shift in ad spend behavior in the core growth areas of mobile, video and programmatic trading. As programmatic activity increases, revenues for the second half of 2016 are expected to further grow due to seasonal effect in programmatic ad spending.

Programmatic revenues now account for 78% of total revenues, demonstrating not only the increasing demand for a technology-based solution by demand and supply partners, but also the effectiveness and reliability of our technological capabilities.

We are particularly pleased with the growth in our mobile activity, with aggregate mobile traffic across all media channels contributing approximately 38% of Group revenues in the first half of the year, compared with 28% in H1 2015, bringing us closer to our stated goal of generating at least 50% of revenues from mobile activity by 2017. Our in-app mobile capabilities, provided by MobFox, are the core driver of this growth and we will continue to expand our mobile offering and customer base throughout the second half of 2016.

Looking forward, we anticipate further operational leverage within the Group, primarily attributable to the following:

1.    Growth in Matomy's mobile, video and programmatic advertising capabilities.

Our core assets and growth prospects are where Mobile, Video and Programmatic activities intersect.  The transition to programmatic-based advertising generates certain advantages for the Company, such as the ability to support fast scaling (reach and volume) operational efficiencies and enhanced ability to leverage data resulting in improved targeting and ad matching capabilities.

2. Enhanced mtmy capabilities.

mtmy, the Company's mobile advertising agency, was launched in July 2016.  As a fully-managed service, mtmy utilizes the full range of Matomy advertising capabilities in order to achieve specific, measureable objectives for mobile clients.  mtmy combines the reach and scale of Matomy's mobile media with powerful targeting and cross-channel optimization enabled by leveraging data to maximize returns on advertising budgets.  We anticipate mtmy being an attractive choice for advertisers in the now mobile-first world.

 

3.    Launch of myDSP.

The recent launch of myDSP, our innovative self-serve demand side platform which utilizes an advanced rule engine to help media buyers and other demand sources maximize campaign results, will offer the most compatible audiences for advertising campaigns and drive Matomy's revenue growth. This is the Company's latest investment in building advanced technology to support smarter programmatic advertising and performance based optimization. The formal announcement was made in September 2016 and we are witnessing very encouraging early feedback from the market.

 

4.    Growth in customer activity in Asia Pacific 

After opening offices in China and South Korea early this year we are encouraged by the initial results our sales teams are generating in the Asia Pacific region, which is one of the fastest growing markets in digital advertising, with much of the traction in mobile. Having a local presence is expected to accelerate our growth and enable us to build credibility and sustainable relationships in the region. We are already seeing early success in these markets and we are confident that this strategic initiative will be a solid long term growth driver.

These recent investments in our business have collectively strengthened our technology platform and customer reach, positioning us to leverage the rapidly evolving demand for mobile, video and programmatic growth.

 

Market overview

Growth in mobile advertising continues to dominate the digital advertising industry, with users spending increasing amounts of time in-app compared to on the mobile web.  In 2016, an estimated 79.3% of time spent per day by U.S. mobile users was dedicated to in-app activity, compared with 20.7% spent on mobile web (eMarketer, April 2016).

Mobile is also the predominant revenue driver of programmatic digital ad spending, with close to 70% of total programmatic digital display spend directed toward mobile advertising (eMarketer, April 2016). This year, mobile programmatic spending is expected to reach $15.45 billion in the U.S. Next year, mobile video programmatic spending will exceed its desktop counterpart for the first time and is expected to grow from 8% in 2015 to 28% in 2019 of the global programmatic ad spending share (eMarketer, April 2016).

 

With significant progress integrating Optimatic and the strong performance of MobFox along with our recent proprietary technological developments, we are confident that Matomy is well-positioned to leverage this exponential industry growth.

 

H1 2016 operating performance

Matomy delivered strong growth around Mobile In App, Video (144% and 95% respectively) and also growth in the email (9%) and in the domain monetization (42%) media channels. This growth was offset by a sharp but anticipated decrease in display advertising and mobile web display revenues  giving overall a decrease of only $0.6 million in top line revenues to $124.4 million on a GAAP basis (H1 2015: $125.0 million). Taking into account the dominance of display in Matomy revenues in past years, we see this as a positive achievement.

The growth in the mobile and video activities is particularly encouraging as both represent key areas of strategic focus for Matomy across all geographic regions of Group operations. Revenues from mobile in-app activity increased by $7.2 million, or 143%, to $12.3 million for the six-month period ended 30 June 2016 from $5.1 million in the same period last year. This growth is partially attributable to strong trading performance and profitability from the acquired MobFox business. Aggregate mobile traffic across all media channels contributed approximately 38% of Group revenue (H1 2015: 28%). Similarly, Matomy's video activity experienced considerable growth in H1 2016 due to increased advertiser demand, particularly in the key North American market. Revenues from video activity in H1 2016 reached $49.2 million, representing 95% growth from the same period last year.

Geographically, Matomy saw its strongest performance in the Americas (including North and South America) with revenue up $9.1 million, to $86.4 million (H1 2015: $77.3 million). This growth was mainly attributable to the video media channel, which is primarily located in the United States and was boosted by the acquisition of Optimatic.

The increase in the Americas was offset by a decrease in European revenues of $7.6 million, to $22.5 million in the six-month period ended 30 June 2016 (H1 2015: $30.1 million). This decrease reflects Matomy's increased focus on mobile and video media channels, with the strongest growth in those channels shown in the Americas.

During the first half of 2016, Matomy focused its R&D effort on core technology enhancements that benefit the overall Matomy advertising platform.  Specific areas of investment include our Mobile SSP platform, our Video SSP platform and a self-service DSP, adding capabilities to Team Internet programmatic capabilities and investment in DATA related initiatives such as DMP.  Matomy also invested in improved infrastructure and operational efficiency through enhancements to programmatic media buying and business intelligence capabilities.

 

 

 

Outlook

Matomy Media Group expects its revenue for 2016 to be in the range of $265 million to $300 million, and its adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of $17 million to $21 million. This is unchanged from guidance issued in July 2016.

This guidance reflects recent investments the Company has made in building out its technology platform and expanding its customer base. The Company has increased its investment in its strategic capabilities of Mobile, Video and Programmatic trading and has established a foot print in the Asia- Pacific (APAC) market, including launching its China- and Korea-based activities. We are committed to our strategy and are making demonstrable progress executing on our plan. These strategic initiatives, among others, are expected to drive growth and build shareholder value.

Display

Display media channel revenues decreased by $27.1 million, or 70%, to $11.7 million for the six-month period ended 30 June 2016 from $38.8 million in the same period last year. The display media channel was affected by changes in the digital advertising ecosystem that were driven by the decrease in value generated for advertisers from this media channel.

Video

Video media channel revenues increased by $24.0 million, or 95%, to $49.2 million for the six-month period ended 30 June 2016 from $25.2 million in the same period last year. The significant growth in the video channel was driven by strongly increased advertiser demand, and improvements to Matomy's video advertising capabilities, with synergies achieved across the group following the acquisition of Optimatic.

Mobile display

Mobile display media channel revenues decreased by $5.7 million, or 69%, to $2.6 million for the six-month period ended 30 June 2016 from $8.3 million in the same period last year. This decrease was driven primarily by the Group's CPM value and overall value of display revenues. 

Mobile in-app

Mobile in-app media channel revenues increased by $7.2 million, or 144%, to $12.3 million for the six-month period ended 30 June 2016 from $5.1 million in the same period last year. This increase was driven primarily by improvements to Matomy's auction mechanism that improved optimisation of the Group's value and the establishment of new methodologies for its demand-side platform and supply-side platform. Additionally, the completion of the integration of the technical and operational components of the MobFox mobile programmatic business bolstered Group mobile activity and revenues. In H1 2016 a further $2.0 million of revenues from combined mobile in-app and video activity were included in the video media channel.

Email

Email media channel revenues increased by $1.1 million, or 9%, to $13.3 million for the six-month period ended 30 June 2016 from $12.2 million in the same period last year, due to an increase in the use of data analysis and improved ad targeting capabilities and deliverability capabilities. Additionally, increased demand from the Group's advertising clients and new sources of media partners further support the Group's growing email marketing activity. 

Social

Social media channel revenues decreased by $5.9 million, or 70%, to $2.5 million for the six-month period ended 30 June 2016 from $8.4 million in the same period last year due to a decrease in agency clients and increased Facebook regulation, and a strong shift to agency customers where our revenues do not include media costs. If these customers' revenues had been recognized on a gross basis (including media costs), our revenues would have been $4.5 million higher.

Domain monetisation

Domain monetisation media channel revenues increased by $9.0 million, or 42%, to $30.6 million for the six-month period ended 30 June 2016 from $21.6 million in the same period last year due to organic growth and investment in the aggregate domain monetisation and direct search navigation business continuing to pay off in terms of enhanced performance-based and programmatic advertising capabilities.

Other media channels

Other media channel revenues decreased by $3.2 million, or 59%, to $2.2 million for the six-month period ended 30 June 2016 from $5.4 million in the same period last year. This decrease is due to diminished activity within the Group's virtual currency and search business units.

Americas

Revenues generated in the Americas increased by $9.1 million, or 12%, to $86.4 million for the six-month period ended 30 June 2016 from $77.3 million in the same period last year, due to continued growth focused particularly in the video media channel, which is strongly centered on the U.S., driven by the acquisition of Optimatic.

Europe

Revenues generated in the European market decreased by $7.6 million, or 25%, to $22.5 million for the six-month period ended 30 June 2016 from $30.1 million in the same period last year due to continuing shift of client focus to the Americas.

Asia

Revenues generated in Asian markets decreased by $1.4 million, or 21%, to $5.1 million for the six-month period ended 30 June 2016 from $6.5 million in the same period last year due to a reduction in unmonetised and lower quality traffic in India and Indonesia while at the same time showing an increase of 72% in our key growth market of China.

 

FINANCIAL REVIEW

Revenue

In the first half of 2016 Matomy's revenue decreased by $0.6 million, to $124.4 million, on a GAAP basis (H1 2015: $125.0 million). This decrease reflects the shift of the revenue mix from legacy display, which is rapidly declining, to our growth engines of video and mobile supported by programmatic media trading, reflecting an effective growth of 41% in revenues from media channels other than overall display activity, which are more sustainable and higher quality revenues.

Although the GAAP gross margin decreased, adjusted gross margin improved, since cost of sales was significantly affected by the increase in amortisation of certain intangible assets acquired, mainly Optimatic.

Excluding the amortisation of intangible assets acquired from 2015 onwards, cost of revenues would have increased by just $0.3 million to $96.9 million (77.8% of total revenues), from $96.6 million (77.3% of total revenues) in the same period last year.

Operating expenses increased by $4.5 million, or 18%, to $29.2 million (H1 2015: $24.7 million). Operating expenses as a percentage of revenues were 23% (H1 2015: 20%).

Excluding the amortisation of intangible assets acquired from 2015 onwards, operating expenses would have increased by $2.5 million to $26.6 million (21% of revenues), from $24.1 million (19% of total revenues) in the same period last year.

Sales and marketing expenses increased 19% to $15.3 million (H1 2015: $12.9 million). This increase includes; (i) expenses attributable to the acquisition of Optimatic in H2 2015 of $1.3 million and amortisation expenses of $1.0 million from that acquisition; and (ii) the increase in sales activities in APAC following the launch of our China- and South Korea-based offices.  Other sales and marketing expenses remained stable year-on-year.

General and administrative expenses increased 8% to $8.9 million (H1 2015: $8.2 million), mainly due to expenses attributable to consolidation of Optimatic of $0.7 million. Due to continued efficiency savings, enhanced automation of processes and working methods throughout the rest of the Group, general and administrative expenses apart from new acquisitions remained unchanged.

 

Research and development

Research and development expenses increased by $1.4 million, or 37%, to $5.0 million (H1 2015: $3.6 million), partially attributable to the effect of the Optimatic acquisition, which increased R&D expenses by $0.7 million, and partly caused by increased investment in R&D reflecting our evolution of becoming a technology oriented company which relies mainly on proprietary based technologies.  

Taxes on income

Taxes on income decreased to $0.3 million for the six-month period ended 30 June 2016 (-5% of income before taxes), compared to $1.0 million in the same period last year (39%). The change in effective tax rate was primarily due to the recording of valuation allowance on carry forward losses in certain subsidiaries, while the effective tax rates in Israel, USA and Germany remained consistent.

Net income

Net income decreased by $7.3 million, or 482%, to a $5.3 million net loss for the six-month period ended 30 June 2016, compared to $1.5 million profit in the same period last year.

Earnings per share

Matomy's basic earnings per share decreased by $0.07 to ($0.06) for the six-month period ended 30 June 2016 (H1 2015: $0.01 EPS). This primarily reflected the net loss, compared to net income in the previous period. The loss per share was reduced by a 1.6% increase in average shares over H1 2016 compared to the same period in 2015, due to option exercises.

Amortisation of intangible assets

Amortisation expenses amounted to $8.1 million for the six-month period ended 30 June 2016, an increase of $2.9 million from amortisation expenses of $5.2 million for the same period last year. Amortisation of the intangible assets Matomy acquired in the Optimatic acquisition added $3.0 million expenses in the period, while amortisation of other assets decreased slightly as some assets were fully amortised.

Exceptional items

Matomy views the following items, which were recorded in profit and loss, as exceptional as they are material to the financial statements and non-recurring and therefore were excluded from non-GAAP measures:

•          Transaction costs associated with M&A activity amounting to $0.3 million in H1 2016 and $0.1 million in H1 2015.

Liquidity and cash flows

The following table sets out selected cash flow information for Matomy for the six-month periods ended 30 June 2016 and 2015.

Cash and cash equivalents decreased by $16.3 million, or 198%, to $26.3 million as at 30 June 2016, compared to $42.6 million as at 30 June 2015. This decrease is mainly attributable to the payment made in consideration of the acquisition of Optimatic which was funded out of the Company's own cash reserves.

Cash flows used in operating activities were $0.3 million in H1 2016 compared to a net inflow in H1 2015 of $9.0 million, primarily due the decreased net income together with a significant increase in payments to media sources / supply side partners in H1 2016 compared to the corresponding period in 2015, which reflect the substantial growth in the video and programmatic activity, which require higher working capital needs than the declining display activity.

Net cash used in investing activities of $3.3 million (H1 2015: $9.9 million) was mainly related to capitalisation of R&D costs and fixed asset investments, whilst in H1 2015 this was primarily related to the Avenlo acquisition and advances paid for the purchasing of intangible assets.

Cash flows from financing activities increased to $2.6 million inflow (H1 2015: $4.4 million outflow), primarily due to a $3.0 million term loan taken out in H1 2016 to fund the acquisition of new domains and an increase of $3.7 million in short term bank credit. As at 30 June 2016, Matomy had $13.6 million in term loans. Of those, $7.0 million are due within one year.

Financial reporting

This financial information has been prepared under US GAAP principles and in accordance with Matomy's accounting policies. There have been no changes to Matomy's accounting policies during the six-month period ended 30 June 2016.

Going concern

The Group's business activities are set out in the Operational Review and the Financial Review. As set out in the Principal Risk Factors, a number of risks affect the Group's results and financial position. The Group's net debt and banking covenants are summarised in the notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements. The Directors confirm that, after making an assessment, they have reasonable expectation that the group has adequate resources to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future.

Principal risks

The Directors assess and monitor the key risks of the business on an ongoing basis. The principal risks and uncertainties that could have a material effect on the Group's performance are set out in detail in the section entitled "Risk Factors" of the Group's IPO prospectus (the "Prospectus") dated 9 July 2014 and below. These include, among other things, the following:

·     certain internet and technology companies may intentionally or unintentionally adversely affect Matomy's operations, mainly, due to announced or unannounced changes and restrictions by such companies

·     the delivery of digital ads and the recording of the performance of digital ads are subject to complex regulations, legal requirements and industry standards

·     Matomy's revenue and operating results are highly dependent on the overall demand for advertising. Factors that affect the amount of advertising spending, such as economic downturns, particularly in the fourth quarter, can make it difficult to predict our revenue and could adversely affect our business.

·     seasonal fluctuations in digital advertising activity, which may historically have been less apparent due to our historical core activities and growth, could adversely affect our cash flows and operating results.

·     In order to meet our growth objectives, we will need to rely upon our ability to innovate, the continued adoption of our solution by buyers and sellers for higher value advertising inventory, the extension of the reach of our solution into evolving digital media, and growth into new geographic markets

·     Matomy operates in an intensely competitive market that includes companies that have greater financial, technical and marketing resources than we do.

·     the digital advertising industry is highly competitive and fragmented and currently experiencing consolidation, resulting in increasing competition

·     In order to meet our growth objectives, we may need to rely on our ability to raise debt or utilize credit lines, which may not be sufficiently available to meet our ongoing financial needs

·     Matomy is dependent on relationships with certain third parties with significant market positions

·     Matomy relies on the continued compatibility of the Matomy Performance Platform with third-party operating systems, software and content distribution channels, as well as newly-acquired systems

·     Matomy may be subject to third-party claims brought against it

·     Matomy has historically derived the majority of its revenues from customers that use its solutions for display marketing campaigns which are now rapidly declining

·     a key part of Matomy's growth strategy relates to acquisitions and the ability to effectively integrate and manage them

·     the digital advertising industry, remains susceptible to fraud

·     Matomy is an Israeli-domiciled company and as such the rights and obligations of shareholders are governed by Israeli law and differ in some respects from English law

NOTE 1:-   GENERAL

 

 

Matomy Media Group Ltd together with its subsidiaries (collectively - "the Company") provides digital performance-based marketing services to customers which include primarily advertisers, advertising agencies, Apps developers, domain owners and other businesses around the world that promote or sell products and/or services to consumers through digital media, such as websites, mobile apps, video and social media networks.

The Company currently operates across eight media channels: display, video, domain monetisation, email, mobile, social, search and virtual currency.

 

 

NOTE 2:-   SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

a.       Unaudited interim financial information

 

The accompanying unaudited interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("US GAAP") for interim financial information. Accordingly, they do not include all the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the six-month period ended 30 June 2016 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ended 31 December 2016.



 

 

NOTE 2:-   SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Cont.)

 

In the preparation of the consolidated financial information, it applied the significant accounting policies, on a consistent basis to the annual financial statements of the Company as of 31 December 2015.

 

The unaudited interim consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company's Annual Report for the year ended 31 December 2015.

 

b.       Principles of consolidation:

 

The consolidated financial information includes the accounts of Matomy Media Group Ltd. and its subsidiaries. Intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated upon consolidation.

 

c.       Use of estimates:

 

The preparation of the consolidated financial information in conformity with US GAAP requires management to make estimates, judgments and assumptions. The Company's management believes that the estimates, judgments and assumptions it uses are reasonable based upon information available at the time they are made. These estimates, judgments and assumptions can affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the dates of the financial information, and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

On an ongoing basis, the Company's management evaluates estimates, including those related to accounts receivable, fair values of financial instruments, fair values and useful lives of intangible assets, fair values of stock-based awards, deferred taxes and income tax uncertainties, and contingent liabilities. Such estimates are based on historical experience and on various other assumptions that it believes to be reasonable, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities.

 

d.       Allowance for doubtful accounts:

 

The Company evaluates specific accounts where information indicates the Company's customers may have an inability to meet financial obligations. Allowance for doubtful accounts amounted to $ 2,983 and $ 3,191 as of 30 June 2016 and 31 December 2015, respectively.



 

 

NOTE 2:-   SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Cont.)

 

e.       Recently issued accounting standards:

 

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09 (ASU 2014-09) "Revenue from Contracts with Customers." ASU 2014-09 supersedes the revenue recognition requirements in "Revenue Recognition (Topic 605)", and requires entities to recognize revenue when they transfer promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled to in exchange for those goods or services. As currently issued and amended, ASU 2014-09 is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within that reporting period, though early adoption is permitted for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016. We are currently in the process of evaluating the impact of the adoption of ASU 2014-09 on our consolidated financial statements, and considering additional disclosure requirements.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-02 (ASU 2016-02) which amends the FASB Accounting Standards Codification and created Topic 842, "Leases." Under Topic 842, lessees are required to recognize assets and liabilities on the balance sheet for most leases and provides for enhanced disclosures. Leases will continue to be classified as either finance or operating. ASU 2016-02 is effective for annual reporting periods, and interim periods within those years beginning after December 15, 2018. Entities are required to use a modified retrospective approach for leases that exist or are entered into after the beginning of the earliest comparative period in the financial statements. Full retrospective application is prohibited and early adoption by public entities is permitted. We are currently in the process of evaluating the impact of the adoption of this standard on our consolidated financial statements.

 

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-09, Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting ("ASU 2016- 09"). The update simplifies several aspects of accounting for employee share-based payment transactions for both public and nonpublic entities, including the accounting for income taxes, forfeitures, and statutory tax withholding requirements, as well as classification in the statement of cash flows. The ASU is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within those annual reporting periods, early adoption is permitted. The adoption of ASU 2016-09 is not expected to have a material effect on the Company's financial position and/or results of operations.



 

 

NOTE 3:-   Fair value of financial instruments

 

The Company applies ASC 820, "Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures". Under this standard, fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability (i.e., the "exit price") in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date.

 

The hierarchy is broken down into three levels, based on the observability of inputs and assumptions, as follows:

 

Level 1 - Observable inputs obtained from independent sources, such as quoted prices for identical assets and liabilities in active markets.

Level 2 - Other inputs that are directly or indirectly observable in the market place.

Level 3 - Unobservable inputs which are supported by little or no market activity.

 

The following table present liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of 30 June 2016:

NOTE 4:-   DERIVATIVE INSTRUMENTS

 

The Company uses derivative instruments to protect against foreign currency fluctuations and to hedge against the risk of overall changes in future cash flow from payments of payroll and related expenses denominated in new Israeli shekels.

 

These instruments were not designated as cash flow hedges as defined by ASC 815, "Derivative and Hedging", and therefore the Company recognises the changes in fair value of these instruments in the statements of operations as financial income or expense, as incurred.
