First Quarter 2017 Financial Results
 
Revenue: For the first quarter of 2017, total revenue was $7.3 million, a decrease of 26% compared to the year ago period, and a 6% decrease from the prior quarter. The year over year and sequential decreases were primarily driven by a decrease in average paying subscribers, reflecting reduced direct marketing investment in the Jewish and Christian Networks. These decreases were partially offset by year over year and sequential increases in ARPU of 14% and 9%, respectively.
 
Contribution: Contribution was $5.8 million in the quarter, an increase of 21% compared to the year ago period, and an 18% decrease from the prior quarter. Our contribution margin decreased to 80% from 91% in the prior quarter and increased from 49% in the year ago period. Total direct marketing expenses decreased 72% to $1.4 million in the first quarter of 2017 as compared to $5.0 million in the prior year period.
 
 
 
 
Net Loss: Net Loss was $(2.1) million in the quarter, a $1.3 million improvement versus the year ago period and a $1.6 million improvement from the prior quarter.
 
Adjusted EBITDA: For the first quarter of 2017, Adjusted EBITDA was $131,000, an increase of $2.4 million versus the year ago period and a decrease of $(1.6) million from the prior quarter. The sequential Adjusted EBITDA decline from the prior quarter was partially driven by a $475,000 legal accrual for the settlement of an ongoing legal matter.
 
Cash: Cash provided by operating activities in the first quarter was $49,000. At March 31, 2017, the Company had $10.8 million in cash and cash equivalents, compared to $11.4 million at the end of the prior quarter. At quarter end, the Company had no outstanding debt.

Forward-Looking Statements
 
This document contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. All statements other than statements of historical fact are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors that may cause Spark’s or EliteSingles’ or the combined company’s performance or achievements to be materially different from those of any expected future results, performance, or achievements. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and neither Spark nor EliteSingles assumes any duty to update forward-looking statements. We caution readers that a number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in, or implied or projected by, such forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements about the benefits of the business combination transaction involving the Company and EliteSingles, including future financial and operating results, the combined company’s plans, objectives, expectations and intentions and other statements that are not historical facts. The following factors, among others, could cause actual results to differ from those set forth in the forward-looking statements: (i) the possibility that the proposed transaction does not close when expected or at all because required regulatory, shareholder or other approvals and other conditions to closing are not received or satisfied on a timely basis or at all. (ii) changes in Spark’s share price before closing, including as a result of the financial performance of EliteSingles prior to closing, or more generally due to broader stock market movements, and the performance of peer group companies. (iii) the risk that the benefits from the transaction may not be fully realized or may take longer to realize than expected, including as a result of changes in general economic and market conditions, interest and exchange rates, monetary policy, laws and regulations and their enforcement, and the degree of competition in the geographic and business areas in which Spark and EliteSingles operate. (iv) the ability to promptly and effectively integrate the businesses of Spark and EliteSingles. (v) the reaction to the transaction of the companies’ customers, employees and counterparties. (vi) diversion of management time on merger-related issues. (vii) lower-than-expected revenues, credit quality deterioration or a reduction in net earnings. and (viii) other risks that are described in Spark’s public filings with the SEC. For more information, see the risk factors described in Spark’s Annual Reports on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and other filings with the SEC.

1 “Contribution” is defined as revenue, net of credits and credit card chargebacks, less direct marketing.
 
2 The Company reports Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure to generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). This non-GAAP measure is one of the primary metrics by which we evaluate the performance of our businesses, budget, forecast and compensate management. We believe this measure provides management and investors with a consistent view, period to period, of the core earnings generated from on-going operations and excludes the impact of: (i) non-cash items such as stock-based compensation, asset impairments, non-cash currency translation adjustments related to an inter-company loan and (ii) one-time items that have not occurred in the past two years and are not expected to recur in the next two years. Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as a substitute for net income (loss) (as determined in accordance with GAAP) for the purpose of analyzing our operating performance or financial position, as Adjusted EBITDA is not defined by GAAP. A reconciliation of the Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2017 can be found in the table below.
 
“Adjusted EBITDA” is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, impairment of intangible and long-lived assets, non-cash currency translation adjustments for an inter-company loan and non-recurring legal and acquisition costs.
 
3 "Paying Subscribers" are defined as individuals who have paid a monthly fee for access to communication and website features beyond those provided to our members. Period ending subscribers for each quarter represent the paying subscriber count as of the last day of the period. Average paying subscribers for each month are calculated as the sum of the paying subscribers at the beginning and end of the month, divided by two. Average paying subscribers for periods longer than one month are calculated as the sum of the average paying subscribers for each month, divided by the number of months in such period. The calculation excludes results from the Company’s HurryDate business due to its relative size.
