Stocks in this article: MMUS

MakeMusic, Inc. (NASDAQ: MMUS) announced financial results for the period ended December 31, 2011.

“Fiscal year 2011 was a challenging year due to turnover in several key leadership positions, including the CEO, CTO and other sales and marketing positions,” said Karen van Lith, MakeMusic CEO. “However, the team came together in the last half of the year and made tremendous strides on several fronts, especially with regard to quality product releases, including the company’s first mobile application. We are well positioned to take on 2012 and are looking forward to many exciting partnering and solution opportunities.”

Financial Results for the Three Months Ended December 31, 2011, Compared to December 31, 2010

  • Net revenues were $5.9 million, compared to $4.8 million.
    • Notation revenue was $3.8 million, compared to $3.0 million. The increase was related to the timing of the upgrade release of Finale 2012.
    • SmartMusic revenue was $2.1 million compared to $1.9 million.
  • Gross Profit was $5.0 million, or 86% of revenue, compared to $4.0 million, or 83% of revenue.
