TiVo reports results for 2014

TiVo have reported financial results for the first quarter ended April 30, 2014.

Tom Rogers, President and CEO of TiVo, says, “This was another solid quarter of execution for TiVo as total TiVo subscriptions reached a record 4.5 million, driven by 341,000 MSO additions. Service and technology revenue grew 39% year-over-year and Adjusted EBITDA increased by over $25 million.”

For the first quarter, service and technology revenues were $86.0 million. This compared to guidance of $85 million to $87 million and $61.8 million for the same quarter last year. TiVo reported Adjusted EBITDA of $26.9 million, compared to Adjusted EBITDA guidance of $22 million to $25 million, and compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $801,000 in the same quarter last year. Net income was $8.1 million, compared to guidance of $5 million to $8 million and a net loss of $(10.3) million in the same quarter last year. TiVo repurchased $110 million of stock during the quarter, bringing total stock repurchases to approximately $225 million over the last 15 months.

Rogers continues, “Our record subscriptions are the product of our leading advanced television technology and our growing relationships with operator partners and have contributed to our strong financial results this quarter. In 2011, TiVo launched our solution with three operators. Today, TiVo has launched or will shortly be launching a solution with 15 operators across the globe, not including Digitalsmiths’ operator customers, which has significantly increased our MSO subscriber base. Importantly, the operators that have embraced TiVo have seen stronger competitive positions and improved operating metrics, including increased on-demand usage, lower churn, and higher revenue per subscriber.”
