LiveWorld Reports Second Quarter Financial Results

Share:

LiveWorld, Inc. (OTC Markets: LVWD), today announced financial results
for the second quarter of 2018. Total revenues were approximately $1.7
million for the second quarter, as compared to the approximately $2.5
million in total revenues reported for the same period in 2017. This
represented a reduction in total revenues of $809,000 period over period
or 32%. The Company's revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2018
were approximately $4.1 million, as compared to the $4.9 million for the
six months ended June 30, 2017. This represents a reduction of $807,000
period over period or 16%.

The Company reported a net loss for the quarter of approximately
$358,000, or 20% of total revenues. This compares to net loss of
approximately $494,000, or 20% of total revenues reported for the second
quarter of 2017. The Company had a net loss for the six months ended
June 30, 2018 of approximately $490,000, or 11% of total revenues, as
compared to the net loss of approximately $808,000, or 16% of total
revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2017.

The Company finished the second quarter with approximately $1.3 million
in cash and cash equivalents, as compared to the approximately $656,000
at the end of the first quarter of 2018, an increase of $664,000 or 101%.

The Company said the decline in revenue was due primarily to the end of
the Walmart relationship in the second quarter. Walmart was the largest
client and it represented 95% of the $809,000 reduction in revenues. The
remaining 5% was related to the timing and renewal of other client
projects.

"We will continue to invest and expand our footprint in the healthcare
sector, including growing our services revenue and innovating our SaaS
platform," said David Houston, Chief Financial Officer of LiveWorld. "We
anticipate this investment will result in positive revenue growth in the
sector for us in 2018."
