NEW YORK, Aug. 11, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- deltathree, Inc. (OTCBB:DDDC), a global provider of video and voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephony services, products, hosted solutions and infrastructures for service providers, resellers and direct consumers, today announced financial results for the second quarter 2010, ended June 30, 2010.

Mr. Effi Baruch, interim Chief Executive Officer and President, and Senior Vice President of Operations and Technology of deltathree, stated, "deltathree's second quarter 2010 financial results marked a return to sequential growth with revenues rising 11 percent over first quarter 2010 levels. Sequential revenue growth was driven by improved sales within the international VoIP reseller division as well as rising demand for deltathree's integrated digital voice and video phone solutions, where we see significant opportunities for future growth. As a result of our video phone service provider contracts, we have continued to increase our presence in the largely underpenetrated global market for integrated digital voice and video phone solutions. These offerings, as well as our recently launched joip Mobile solution, all leverage our world-class international VoIP and video over IP network.

"Launched in July, our new joip Mobile application provides cellular phone customers from across leading mobile operating systems (such as iPhone, Google Android and Nokia Symbian) flexibility to save up to 70 percent off their mobile phone bills. joip Mobile offers users a convenient and cost effective way to save money on the high cost of international and long distance calls as well as costly roaming charges incurred while traveling outside their local calling region .We are very pleased with the ramp in initial demand for joip Mobile from consumer and business customers alike, and with support coming soon for the Windows Mobile and Blackberry operating systems the joip Mobile application introduces yet another growth driver into our portfolio of next generation communication services, especially since we can also offer joip Mobile on a white-label basis to business customers. While we continue to expand our new offerings and our penetration into the integrated digital voice and video phone sector, we remain simultaneously focused on maximizing operating cost efficiencies and returning deltathree to long-term profitability," concluded Mr. Baruch.

For the second quarter of 2010, deltathree reported total revenues of $3.4 million compared with $3.1 million in the sequential first quarter 2010 and $5.3 million reported for the second quarter of 2009. The year-over-year decline in quarterly revenue was primarily related to the suspension of the operations of deltathree's then-largest reseller customer in the fourth quarter of 2009 as well as higher levels of revenue from service provider customers in the second quarter of 2009.

Second quarter 2010 GAAP net loss totaled $813,000, or $(0.01) per diluted share, compared to a GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2009 of $1.3 million, or $(0.02) per diluted share. Second quarter 2010 non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA (as defined below) loss was $550,000, or $(0.01) per diluted share, compared to a non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA loss of $957,000, or $(0.01) per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2009.

deltathree defines adjusted EBITDA as earnings before stock-based compensation, interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. deltathree uses adjusted EBITDA as a measure of the company's operating trends. The adjusted EBITDA numbers presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Consistent with Regulation G under the U.S. federal securities laws, the non-GAAP measures in this press release have been reconciled to the nearest GAAP measure, and this reconciliation is located under the heading "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Information to GAAP" following the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows included in this press release.

As of June 30, 2010, deltathree held approximately $1.6 million in cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash and short-term investments, and had negative working capital equal to approximately $2.9 million and negative stockholders' equity equal to approximately $2.5 million. While deltathree's cost-reduction activities continue to yield measurable improvements, the company is continuing to draw upon its cash reserves on a monthly basis.

On August 3, 2010, the company completed a draw down of the $1.2 million line of credit available under the March 2010 loan and security agreement with D4 Holdings, LLC.  On August 10, 2010, the company entered into a second loan and security agreement with D4 Holdings for an additional credit line in a principal amount of $1.0 million. These credit lines have provided deltathree important near-term financial flexibility and reflect the confidence in the company held by D4 Holdings, the majority stockholder of deltathree and whose ownership includes the owners of ACN, Inc., an international direct seller of telecommunications services. The company is continuing to explore potential capital initiatives aimed at further strengthening its balance sheet and remedying its negative working capital.

Adjusted EBITDA Financial Disclosure

Investors are cautioned that adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of liquidity or financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). In addition, it should not be construed as an alternative to any other measures of performance determined in accordance with GAAP, or as an indicator of the company's operating performance, liquidity or cash flows generated by operating, investing and financing activities, as there may be significant factors or trends that it fails to address. Adjusted EBITDA financial information is presented because deltathree believes that it is helpful to some investors as one measure of the company's operations. deltathree cautions investors that non-GAAP financial information such as adjusted EBITDA, by its nature, departs from traditional accounting conventions; accordingly, its use can make it difficult to compare deltathree's results with the results from other reporting periods and with the results of other companies.
