("Proxama" or the "Company")

Half-Year Results

Proxama PLC, (AIM: PROX), the mobile commerce company specialising in proximity marketing and a provider of end-to-end payment solutions for card issuers and processors, is pleased to announce its half year results for the six months ended 30th June 2016.

 

Highlights

Financial Highlights

Revenues increased by 26% to £1.21m (2015 £0.96m). Other operating income, which includes grant income, has increased to £0.32m (2015 £0.04m) and therefore total income for the half year is £1.53m (2015 £1.0m).

EBITDA1 losses before exceptional items reduced significantly to £2.10m (2015: £3.48m).

Losses before tax decreased to £2.94m (2015: £4.6m).

Loss per share2 of 0.27p (2015: 0.44p).
 

Operational Highlights

Sale of the Digital Payments Division is proceeding with completion expected in 2016.

The Digital Payments Division has made good progress in H1 through accelerating the commercial availability of Proxama's cloud based mobile payments solutions.

The Proximity Marketing Division has enjoyed a strong period:

Executed commercial mobile proximity engagement campaigns for Royal Bank of Canada, GLACÉAU smartwater (a division of Coca Cola), Skyscanner and in collaboration with their partner the Mobile Gamer Network, DraftKings and Crabbies.

Establishing what is believed to be the largest beacon network in the UK, with a London focus, being further expanded with a specific emphasis on adding new beacons in transport and leisure venues.

 

Post Period End

Completed an equity placing in July 2016 raising a further £2m (before expenses) and the Company is on track to be cash breakeven by the end of 2017. Cash as at 30 June 2016 was £0.3m.

In September, Proxama became one of only two companies worldwide to be certified by Google as a "Location Services Provider" to deliver Eddystone experiences for consumers, including the Physical Web (the use of mobile technology to interact with objects and locations) after passing the technical requirements to demonstrate full integration with the Google Beacon Platform.

With Apple's iPhone 7 reliant of Bluetooth for its wireless functions such as headphones this is expected to increase the use of Bluetooth in the UK, a positive development for Proxama's Bluetooth enabled beacon network.

1 EBITDA means earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, amortization and exceptional items

2 Loss per share is computed from statutory profits after tax adjusted to exclude exceptional items

 

Commenting on the results, John Kennedy, Chief Executive of Proxama, said,

"The calibre of the brands and businesses we are now working with on a day to day basis are a reflection of the future potential of our business. We are excited about the advances in our network scale and reach, and how brands are using this unique capability. The early revenues from advertising and data are promising and we are focused on looking to maximise the opportunity for Proxama."

About Proxama PLC

Proxama is an international commerce Company specialising in proximity marketing via mobile and providing end-to-end solutions for card issuers to migrate customers from magnetic stripe credit and debit cards to contactless mobile payments.

 

Today, Proxama's solutions are used by banks, financial institutions, mobile app companies, media owners, stadium owners, retailers and brands.

 

The proximity marketing division focuses on connecting consumers to brands and retailers via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacon technology. Proxama establishes and owns beacon networks in high footfall locations such as City Centres, stadia, shopping malls and retail outlets, which are then able to communicate to consumers via messages to mobiles when the consumer is in close proximity to a beacon. The technology platform at the heart of this division is TapPoint®.

 

The payments division manages end-to-end credit and debit cards solutions on behalf of financial institutions in the United States, Europe and the Middle East and specialises in enabling the migration of cards from magnetic stripe cards, to chip and pin cards and from contactless chip cards to mobile devices. The technology behind this division is Proxama's Digital Enablement Platform.

 

 

 

Chairman's Statement

Introduction


This is an exciting time for our business as we move firmly into the process of commercialising our technologies across our Proximity Marketing and Digital Payments Divisions.  Within our Proximity Marketing Division our strategy and execution in the marketplace is evolving in line with the opportunities that arise. We believe our beacon network to be the largest in the UK of its type. The fundamental basis of our business model remains focused on generating revenue from both location based mobile marketing products and the sale of data to major Data Management Providers (DMPs).

Major brands and advertising agencies are increasingly looking to see greater co-ordination between multi-channel campaigns such as integrating mobile advertising with Out of Home ("OOH") advertising. In addition, the desire for attribution (evidencing mobile advertising has been effective) combined with transparent analysis of mobile campaign results. This is an important trend for the Company as Proxama's technology is well positioned to help with both of these aspirations in the marketplace.
 

Update on Sale of Digital Payments Division


The business continues to focus on the successful strategic sale of the Digital Payments Division. As announced on 24 June 2016, discussions regarding the potential sale of the Digital Payments Division (the "Sale") continue to take place with a potential buyer. The potential buyer's due diligence is ongoing and discussions are active. Whilst the Company is continuing discussions with this potential buyer, it is not in a period of exclusivity and there are encouraging conversations with other potential buyers. The Board expect that the Strategic Review will complete by the end of 2016. However, there can be no certainty that an offer will be made, any sales concluded, nor as to the terms of any offer or sale.


Results

The trading performance of the business is in line with management expectations. The Company grew revenues and other income by over 50% to £1.53m (2015: £1.0m) and the cost-base has continued to reduce whilst maintaining investment in key areas, resulting in an EBITDA1 loss of £2.10m (2015: £3.48m). 

The Proximity Marketing Division income and revenue accounted for approximately 24% (£0.4m) of Group income in first half of 2016, up from 5% (£0.1m) in 2015.

The directors have taken steps to reduce the running costs of the Company to the minimum level consistent with the proper running of a public company. The costs of the business continue to be managed efficiently, reducing by more than 15% on a year on year basis, with the objective of extending, as far as possible, the cash resources of the Company and the period during which the Company can sell its Digital Payments Division. The Board believes the Company is well placed to fund the business through to being cash flow positive by the end of 2017.

As at 30 June 2016, the Company had a cash balance of £0.3m and during July raised £2m (before expenses) from new and existing investors.


Operating Review

Proximity Marketing Division
Key announcements affecting the mobile proximity marketing sector from Apple and Google have served to underline the importance of this marketplace to current and future participants. One of the most significant is that Google continue to invest and develop their Nearby and Physical Web propositions globally, with physical location, as identified by a BLE beacon and the Eddystone standards, being at the heart of Google's development in mobile. With Proxama being one of only two companies in the world and the only one outside of the US to be certified by Google as a Location Services Provider, Proxama can offer services and experiences using these technologies, significantly increasing the market opportunity.

Apple's new iPhone 7 launch has also focused the spotlight on Bluetooth adoption - with the increasing move to wireless functions which require Bluetooth, it is expected that more and more consumers will default to having Bluetooth permanently on.

These decisions by the industry's major players are all combining to support our positioning and the importance of continuing to build out our leading UK beacon network. All major London public transport types are now covered, with a majority using the latest dual beacons (supporting both Apple iBeacon and Google Eddystone formats); we have partnered with most of the major OOH media players, across London bars and pubs, cinemas, regional trains, buses, taxis, airports and bars around the 20 English Premier League football grounds. Our current proximity network capability stands at around 4,000 beacons.

However, it is critical to understand that the fundamental KPI of a beacon network is not the number of beacons but the consumer reach of those beacons. For example, the Company currently estimates the potential consumer reach across its beacon enabled London zone 1 and 2 stations to be over 1 billion, which is sourced from TFL's entry and exit footfall data. Our partnership with the Emblem Group across 97 of those stations enables us to maximise the opportunity as consumers pass each one of our beacons.

The Company has a campaign pipeline containing some of the most recognisable brand names in the world. So far in 2016, Proxama has worked on campaigns with Royal Bank of Canada, GLACÉAU smartwater (a division of Coca Cola), Skyscanner and in collaboration with their partner the Mobile Gamer Network, DraftKings and Crabbies. The calibre of the brands the Company is now working with, on a consistent and regular basis, is an excellent indicator of the endorsement of the proximity marketing business and there is a growing pipeline of similar campaigns still to come this year and into 2017.

An important next stage for our market is around greater campaign analysis, and in particular, the demand for greater attribution of mobile campaign spend for marketers. Even in 2016 it is difficult to execute and measure effective location based targeting, and location technology is often crudely used, missing or inaccurate. We believe only beacon technology is able to determine the exact proximity of a consumer to a physical location and also the context e.g. entering a station, on a moving bus, dwelling at a pub, bar or cinema. Once this moment has been identified, Proxama can help the brand or app publisher deliver the most appropriate notification, engaging message or advert.

Today the Company is also announcing the completed integration of their Software Development Kit ("SDK") into the Android version of the iconic London Tube Map app, with our partner Mapway. The app has circa 900,000 lifetime downloads and is another step change in the Proxama audience reach across our beacon network.  The Company has a strong pipeline of other major app owners, who are focused across a range of sectors.

Monetising the business is now underway with campaigns going beyond trials to having a commercial element, which we expect will see accelerated revenues throughout 2016.


With Proxama's audience reach expanding significantly every month, the Company has begun the process of commercialising the anonymised data this audience generates, through data partnership agreements with the major DMPs such as Oracle BlueKai, AdSquare and Nielson. The Company anticipates growing data revenues in line with the growth of the network and advertising campaigns run across it.


Digital Payments Division
The
Digital Payments Division has enjoyed a successful first half of 2016. Our focus has been on accelerating the commercial availability of our Cloud Based mobile payments solutions, delivering a first class service to our existing International clients and implementing software solutions to new clients in USA and EMEA. After previously winning contracts with new clients such as Navy Federal Credit Union, Diners Club South Africa (DCSA) and Tutuka in South Africa, a significant focus has been in ensuring that we exceeded these new clients' expectations. 

The Division is also at final stages of selection with a number of chip and pin migration and mobile payment prospects which will further increase market penetration. Proxama has invested heavily in expanding its mobile payments solutions and now for the first time, and in response to market feedback, we can offer a Software as a Service (SaaS) model for rapid implementation of our highly scalable and resilient solutions.


People

The Board is pleased to announce that John Kennedy has been appointed as permanent CEO of Proxama PLC. John has been interim CEO for the Group since 15th July 2015 and has been instrumental in restructuring the business and laying the rails for an exciting Proximity Marketing business. John will continue to combine this with the CFO role whilst the Board looks to commence a search for this position.

The Board would also like to recognise the contribution made by the Proxama staff in what has been a dynamic and challenging few months, especially given the uncertainties over the future of the Digital Payments Division. We thank them all for their commitment and professionalism.


Outlook

The very good progress which has been made reinforces the Board's belief that the Company is establishing itself as a real presence in this rapidly expanding market of location based marketing. We believe our beacon network represents the largest such network in the UK of its type and when combined with our proven ability to execute mobile proximity engagement campaigns puts the Company in a strong position. We can now focus on capitalising on our infrastructure from both location based mobile marketing products and the sale of data to major Data Management Providers.

NOTES TO THE UNAUDITED INTERIM CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

FOR THE SIX MONTHS ENDED 30 JUNE 2016

 

1.    GENERAL INFORMATION

Proxama PLC ("the Company") and its subsidiaries are an international mobile commerce Company operating across two divisions specialising in proximity marketing via mobile and providing end-to-end solutions for card issuers to migrate customers from magnetic stripe credit and debit cards to contactless mobile payments. Proxama has been at the forefront of this market for the last 10 years.

 

Today, Proxama's solutions are used by banks, financial institutions, mobile app companies, media owners, stadium owners, retailers and brands. Current clients include: Diners Club, Navy Credit Union, Fiserv, Nets, Exterion Media, Skyscanner, O2 and Ubiquitous.

The Proximity Marketing Division:

Focuses on connecting consumers to brands and retailers via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacon technology and Near Field Communication (NFC). Proxama establishes and owns beacon infrastructure networks in high footfall locations such as City Centres, transport networks, stadia, shopping malls, entertainment hubs and retail outlets, which are then able to communicate to consumers via messages to mobiles when the consumer is in close proximity to a beacon. The technology platform at the heart of this division is TapPoint®.

The Payments Division:

Manages end-to-end credit and debit cards solutions on behalf of financial institutions in the United States, Europe, Africa and the Middle East and specialises in enabling the migration of cards from magnetic stripe cards, to chip and pin cards and from contactless chip cards to mobile devices. The technology behind this division is Proxama's Digital Enablement Platform.

 

The Company is a public limited company which is listed on the Alternative Investment Market of the London Stock Exchange and is incorporated and domiciled in the United Kingdom. The address of its registered office is given on the Company Information page.

 

2.    BASIS OF PREPARATION

 

The financial information has been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") as adopted by the European Union, IFRIC interpretations and with those parts of the Companies Act 2006 applicable to companies reporting under IFRS. The accounting policies adopted are consistent with those of the financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2015, as described in those financial statements.

 

The figures for the six-month periods ended 30 June 2016 and 30 June 2015 have not been audited. The figures for the year ended 31 December 2015 have been extracted from, but do not constitute, the consolidated financial statements of Proxama PLC for that year. Those financial statements have been delivered to the Registrar of Companies and included an auditors' report, which was unqualified and did not contain a statement under Section 498(2) or Section 498(3) Companies Act 2006.
