NEW YORK, Nov. 4, 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 third quarter 2010, ended September 30, 2010.

Mr. Effi Baruch, Chief Executive Officer, President and Senior Vice President of Operations and Technology of deltathree, stated, "Our third quarter 2010 financial results were highlighted by our second consecutive quarter of sequential revenue growth, as deltathree's expanding portfolio of digital voice and video communications solutions gained additional traction with service provider and consumer customers. Sequential top line growth was matched with a sequential reduction in our quarterly net loss, as operating efficiency measures across the company yielded improvements in our cost structure."

"On the product development front, during the third quarter we launched several new mobile VoIP offerings aimed at penetrating the vast and growing market for cellular VoIP solutions. Our recently launched joip Mobile phone application offers cellular customers a new and flexible way to make low cost mobile calls over GSM, CDMA as well as WiFi networks. Building on the successful launch of joip Mobile, deltathree signed a sales agency agreement with ACN, Inc. for deltathree's mobile phone application. ACN is the world's largest direct seller of telecommunications and essential services for residential and business customers and will be offering a private label version of our joip Mobile phone application through thousands of independent representatives in ACN's North American distribution network under the ACN Mobile World brand. Cellular operating systems supported by joip Mobile and ACN Mobile World include the iPhone, Google Android and Nokia Symbian, with support for the Windows Mobile operating system and BlackBerry expected soon."

"During the third quarter we also strengthened the ranks of our senior management team with two key appointments. Arie Rand assumed the roles of Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer, bringing deep expertise in effectively managing financial, strategic and business activities for growth-oriented technology companies trading in the global capital markets. We also welcomed to deltathree Todd Stone as Vice President of Business Development and Sales, bringing more than 13 years of experience in selling, marketing and promoting leading edge communications solutions to major operators and carriers in North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia and Africa. Amongst other things, Todd will be leading the company in building up our affiliate program in which affiliates will locate and bring new subscribers to our joip Mobile service. These appointments bolster deltathree's leadership team as well as our ability to drive sales and increase our share in the global market for digital voice and video as well as mobile VoIP communications offerings," concluded Mr. Baruch.

For the third quarter of 2010, deltathree reported total revenues of $3.5 million compared with $3.4 million in the sequential second quarter 2010 and $4.8 million reported for the third 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.

Third quarter 2010 GAAP net loss totaled $729,000, or $(0.01) per diluted share, compared to a GAAP net loss for the third quarter of 2009 of $367,000, or $(0.01) per diluted share. deltathree's GAAP net loss improved sequentially compared to a GAAP net loss of $813,000, or $(0.01) per diluted share in the second quarter of 2010. During the third quarter of 2010 the company recorded a one-time accrual for a contingency associated with certain reseller customers totaling $176,000.

Third quarter 2010 non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA (as defined below) loss was $331,000, or $(0.00) per diluted share, compared to a non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA loss of $145,000, or $(0.00) per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2009. deltathree's non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA loss improved sequentially compared to non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA loss of $550,000, or $(0.01) per diluted share in the second quarter of 2010. 

deltathree defines adjusted EBITDA as earnings before stock-based compensation, interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and accrual for contingency. 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 September 30, 2010, deltathree held approximately $836,000 in cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash and short-term investments, and had negative working capital equal to approximately $3.5 million and negative stockholders' equity equal to approximately $3.1 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 10, 2010, the company entered into a second loan and security agreement with D4 Holdings, LLC for a credit line in a principal amount of $1.0 million. On September 14 and October 28, 2010 deltathree received $300,000 and $400,000, respectively, from this credit line, providing deltathree important near-term financial flexibility. 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.
