DigitalPost Interactive, Inc. (DGLP.OB) Announces Second Quarter 2008 Results

Monday, August 18th, 2008

DigitalPost Interactive, Inc. (DGLP.OB), a company focused on building advanced consumer and B2B digital media sharing web platforms, is pleased to announce its second quarter 2008 financial results. The proprietary platforms can be customized and adapted to give clients the power to offer re-branded and subscription-based products at a reasonable cost. The flexible platforms are designed with efficient and easy deployment in mind, and allow users to store and share years of digital media in one convenient place.

DigitalPost, based in Irvine, California, recognized $144,200 in revenue for the second quarter 2008, a 438% increase when compared to $26,800 for the same period last year. The company also recognized a 401% increase in the revenue for the six-month period ending on June 30. For 2008, the results were reported at $156,500, while $39,000 was reported in 2007.

The company tightened its belt and pursued methods aimed at reducing operating costs. DigitalPost managed to book costs of $873,000 for the six months ending June 30, 2008 compared to the $915,300 of expenses booked for the same period last year. While the company found ways to become more efficient in operations, DigitalPost continued to pursue other methods for improving their cash position. During the second quarter, the company managed to secure over $1.1 million in private debt and equity financing.

A closing look at revenue found that the primary contributing factors to the increase were an increase in subscribers and in professional services. The second quarter 2008 professional services revenue is reported at $85,100 compared to $10,000 for the same period last year. The 751% increase is related to the company signing several contracts with a well-known theme park. The company’s subscriber base jumped almost 400% from 1,152 at June 30, 2007 to 4,541 at June 30, 2008. Interestingly, the tremendous growth for the year is primarily from the company’s direct-to-consumer advertising campaign.

During the second quarter 2008, DigitalPost completed partnership agreements with Westgate Resorts and Kiddie Kandids. Westgate Resorts, the third largest timeshare company in the world, plans to launch a family website service for its 500,000 members and its potential clients. The site should be operational at all 28 Westgate Resorts in the fourth quarter of 2008. DigitalPost and Kiddie Kandids, the largest national children’s portrait studio in the United States, worked together to create a digital media-sharing service named OurFamilyLife.com which has a planned launch date of October 1, 2008.

DigitalPost (DGLP.OB) on the Social Network Bandwagon

Wednesday, June 6th, 2007

Social gatherings have shifted from coffee houses to the Internet with the rise of Myspace, YouTube and Facebook and others. It’s a worldwide trend that allows users to interact with other people just around the corner or on the other side of the globe. The features on these networking/social portals include the ability to express oneself, communicate via IPTV, instant message, blogging and more, and to create pages customized to fit one’s personality.DigitalPost Interactive (OTCBB: DGLP ) is one company jumping on the bandwagon, supplying users user-friendly Web sites for sharing digital media online and includes features that make online socialization so popular – such as digital photo and video uploading, blogging/news functionality, interactive message boards, calendars and integrated e-mail .

DigitalPost focuses on the family demographic and divided that into two targets: general families with TheFamilyPost.com and military families with WebsitesforHeroes.com). The company’s proprietary software, Qwik-Post, allows users to upload pictures and videos in a secure password protected arena.

“DigitalPost Interactive’s platform combines the best elements of leading providers in the space such as Youtube and Myspace but encapsulates the technology in a simple, easy-to-use platform that can be applied to many other targeted vertical markets that would benefit from digital media presentation and sharing,” the company said on its Web site.

DigitalPost’s main flow of revenue is derived from subscriptions to monthly Web site hosting services. Since the company’s formation in 2005, it has generated 841 subscribers and 1,672 users.

While the number of subscribers is growing, the generated revenue is not enough to cover the company’s operating costs and expenses. For the three months ended March 31, 2007, the year ended Dec. 31, 2006 and from time of inception in July 2005 to Dec. 31, 2005, the company reported revenue of $12,200, $13,900 and $4,500 respectively.

“We are in the early phases of revenue generating activities and intend to market our product more aggressively upon completion of additional debt or equity financing. On Jan. 30, 2007, we completed [the recent merger] to assist us in raising additional working capital through equity or debt financing,” the company said in its 10QSB.

DigitalPost may have set its focus for now on the family demographic, and maybe not bringing in enough to cover expenses at this time, but there’s a world of users out there.
