Fiscal 2020 Third Quarter Financial Results
In the quarter ending May 31, 2020, Play MPE® revenue declined by approximately 2.4%. Adjustments in pricing to a long-standing customer agreement and negative impacts of foreign exchange resulted in a small decline to revenue. This was offset by continued growth in usage by independent music labels. Adjustments to pricing in this agreement is designed to facilitate longer term growing usage of the Play MPE® platform in under used market segments.
“We saw very encouraging results from our Canadian and Latin Music initiatives in our third quarter as usage expanded to include Sony Music Canada and several major independent record labels. We also launched our Latin lists in the United States and Mexico and commenced seeding those networks with popular content.” said Fred Vandenberg, Chief Executive Officer for Destiny Media Technologies. “Play MPE® continues to raise its profile as a thought leader with the launch of our new panel and webinar series.”
The Company commenced a stock repurchase program in September 2019, resulting in market purchases of 550,140 shares (representing 5% of shares outstanding as of August 31, 2019) for a total cost of $533,223 USD.
