Highlights

Fiscal 2020 First Quarter Results

Play MPE® currency adjusted revenue for the quarter ended November 30, 2019 grew by 8.5% over the first quarter of fiscal 2019. Increases in revenue were driven by expanded use by independent labels in Canada and the United States. Foreign currency fluctuations reduced the overall positive impact to our Play MPE ® revenues resulting in a net 6.3% increase in reported Play MPE ® revenue. Overall expenditure growth of 22% is the result of increased investments in product development and business development to increase the cadence of product enhancement and to establish new markets for Play MPE®.

“During the quarter we continued to increase our investment in product development and business development resources by reinvesting our sustained revenue growth,” said Fred Vandenberg, Chief Executive Officer for Destiny Media Technologies. “These new investments are expected to increase product enhancements and new market acquisition in the short term.”

The company commenced a stock repurchase program in September 2019, resulting in market purchases to January 8, 2020 of 512,555 shares (representing 4.7% of shares outstanding as of August 31, 2019) for a total cost of $490,500 USD.
