Digimarc Reports Third Quarter 2020 Financial Results

BEAVERTON, Ore., Oct. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Digimarc Corporation (NASDAQ: DMRC), creator of the Digimarc Platform for digital identification and detection, reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020.

Digimarc The Barcode of Everything(TM)

Third quarter 2020 financial results
Revenue for the third quarter of 2020 was $5.8 million, even with the third quarter of 2019. Service revenue increased six percent, reflecting growth in services to Government customers. Subscription revenue decreased ten percent, reflecting the impact of a renegotiated contract with a Retail supplier partner in the first quarter of 2020.

Operating expenses for the third quarter of 2020 increased two percent to $12.2 million compared to $11.9 million in the same quarter a year ago. The increased costs resulted from $0.8 million of non-recurring severance costs related to our restructuring plan implemented in July 2020, partially offset by lower travel, consulting and other costs. Excluding the severance costs, operating expenses would have been down five percent.

Operating loss for the third quarter of 2020 increased four percent to $8.4 million compared to $8.0 million in the third quarter of 2019, due to the non-recurring severance costs noted above.

Net loss for the third quarter of 2020 increased eight percent to $8.4 million or $(0.68) per diluted share compared to a net loss of $7.8 million or $(0.65) per diluted share in the same quarter a year ago. The non-recurring severance costs of $0.8 million incurred during the third quarter of 2020 accounted for $(0.07) per diluted share of the net loss.
