LiveWorld Reports Financial Results for the 2nd Quarter 2013

19% Revenue Growth and Continued Profitability

SAN JOSE, Calif. & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- LiveWorld, Inc. (OTC Markets: LVWD), today announced the financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2013. Total revenues were $3.7 million for the quarter as compared to the $3.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2012. This was an increase of approximately $584,000 or 19% period-over-period. The Company's revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2013 were approximately $7.6 million, as compared to $5.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012. This was an increase of approximately $1.8 million or 31% period-over-period.

The Company reported net income for the first quarter of 2013 of $271,000, or 7% of total revenues. This result was a decrease of $139,000 when compared to the net income of $410,000, or 13% reported for the quarter ended June 30, 2012. The Company's net income for the six months ended June 30, 2013 was approximately $563,000, as compared to the net income of $684,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012. This was a decrease of approximately $121,000 period-over-period.

The Company ended the quarter with approximately $3.9 million in cash and cash equivalents. The Company reported a positive working capital balance of approximately $3.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 as compared to the $2.8 million it had for the quarter ended December 31, 2012. The Company anticipates that its cash and cash equivalents will diminish for the remainder of this year as it expands its development, sales, and marketing efforts for the second half of 2013.

"We had a solid financial performance for the second quarter of the year with double digit revenue growth while maintaining profitability. We have been consistent with our strategy of increasing our investment in sales, marketing, and product development which has resulted in the reduced profitability over the first six months of 2013," said David Houston, Chief Financial Officer of LiveWorld. "We remain positive for 2013 and anticipate overall growth for the full year 2013."
