1. Nature of Operations

NeuLion, Inc. (“NeuLion” or the “Company”) is a technology service provider that delivers live and on-demand content to Internet-enabled devices.  Through the Company’s cloud-based end-to-end solution, the Company builds and manages private, interactive digital networks that enable the Company’s customers to provide a destination for their subscribers to view and interact with their content.  The Company was incorporated on January 14, 2000 under the Canada Business Corporations Act and was domesticated under Delaware law on November 30, 2010.  The Company’s common stock is listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”).

The Company’s core business and business model has evolved from being a provider of professional information technology services and international programming to a provider of customized, end-to-end, interactive video services for a wide range of professional and collegiate sports properties, cable networks and operators, content owners and distributors, and telecommunication companies.  Shifts in consumer behavior drive technology requirements, and our technology empowers our customers to capitalize on the growing consumer demand for viewing video content on multiple types of Internet-enabled devices.  The Company’s technology enables delivery to a range of Internet-enabled devices, including personal computers, laptops, mobile devices, gaming consoles, tablets, Internet-enabled TVs, third-party set top boxes (“STBs”), standard TV sets that have Internet-connected STBs and other Internet-enabled consumer accessories.  The Company’s platform offers an end-to-end service, which includes content management, subscriber management, digital rights management, billing services, app creation, content delivery and advertising substitution.

2. Basis of Presentation and Significant Accounting Policies

The Company’s accounting policies are consistent with those presented in our annual consolidated financial statements as at December 31, 2011.  These interim unaudited consolidated financial statements do not include all footnote disclosures required by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for annual financial statements and therefore should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements, including the notes thereto, for the year ended December 31, 2011 as they appear in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K.

These financial statements were prepared in conformity with U.S. GAAP, which requires management to make certain estimates that affect the reported amounts in the interim unaudited consolidated financial statements, and the disclosures made in the accompanying notes. Despite the Company’s intention to establish accurate estimates and use reasonable assumptions, actual results may differ from these estimates.  All significant intercompany transactions and accounts have been eliminated on consolidation.

In the opinion of management, these interim unaudited consolidated financial statements contain all of the adjustments of a normal and recurring nature necessary to present fairly the Company’s financial position as at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 and the results of operations and cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011.

Information as at March 31, 2012 and for the three months ended
March 31, 2012 and 2011 (unaudited)
 
 
Recently issued accounting standards

In June 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-05, “Presentation of Comprehensive Income” (“ASU No. 2011-05”), which improves the comparability, consistency, and transparency of financial reporting and increases the prominence of items reported in Other Comprehensive Income (“OCI”) by eliminating the option to present components of OCI as part of the statement of changes in stockholders' equity. The amendments in this standard require that all nonowner changes in stockholders' equity be presented either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. Subsequently in December 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-12, “Deferral of the Effective Date for Amendments to the Presentation of Reclassifications of Items Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income” (“ASU No. 2011-12”), which indefinitely defers the requirement in ASU No. 2011-05 to present on the face of the financial statements reclassification adjustments for items that are reclassified from OCI to net income in the statement(s) where the components of net income and the components of OCI are presented. The amendments in these standards do not change the items that must be reported in OCI, when an item of OCI must be reclassified to net income, or change the option for an entity to present components of OCI gross or net of the effect of income taxes. The amendments in ASU No. 2011-05 and ASU No. 2011-12 are effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011 and are to be applied retrospectively. The Company adopted ASU No. 2011-05 and ASU No. 2011-12 on January 1, 2012, and its application did not have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial position or results of operations.

In September 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-08, “Testing Goodwill for Impairment” (“ASU No. 2011-08”), which allows entities to use a qualitative approach to test goodwill for impairment. ASU No. 2011-08 permits an entity to first perform a qualitative assessment to determine whether it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying value. If it is concluded that this is the case, it is necessary to perform the currently prescribed two-step goodwill impairment test. Otherwise, the two-step goodwill impairment test is not required. ASU No. 2011-08 is effective for annual and interim goodwill impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2011. The adoption of the provisions of ASU No. 2011-08 will not have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial position or results of operations.

6. Loss Per Share

Basic loss per share is computed by dividing net loss for the period by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding for the period. Diluted loss per share is computed by dividing net loss for the period by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding for the period, and excludes the effect of potential shares of common stock, as their inclusion would be anti-dilutive due to the losses recorded by the Company.

The following table summarizes the potential shares of common stock that was outstanding as at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 that was not included in the computation of diluted loss per share as their effect would have been anti-dilutive.

10.  Redeemable Preferred Stock

The Company has 50,000,000 authorized shares of preferred stock, $0.01 par value per share, of which 17,176,818 shares have been designated as Class 3 Preference Shares and 10,912,265 have been designated as Class 4 Preference Shares.  

Class 3 Preference Shares

On September 29, 2010, the Company issued 17,176,818 Class 3 Preference Shares, at a price of CDN$0.60 per share in a private offering, for aggregate gross proceeds of $10,000,000.  Expenses related to the share issuance were $245,662.  The principal terms of the Class 3 Preference Shares are as follows:
 
Voting rights – The Class 3 Preference Shares have voting rights (one vote per share) equal to those of the Company’s common stock.

Dividend rights – The Class 3 Preference Shares carry a fixed cumulative dividend, as and when declared by our Board of Directors, of 8% per annum payable in cash upon a liquidation event for up to five years, as well as the right to receive any dividends paid to holders of common stock.

Conversion rights – The holders of the Class 3 Preference Shares have the right to convert any or all of their Class 3 Preference Shares, at the option of the holder, at any time, into common stock on a one for one basis.  In addition, the Class 3 Preference Shares will automatically be converted into common stock in the event that the holders of a majority of the outstanding Class 3 Preference Shares consent to such conversion.  In the event of conversion to common stock, accrued but unpaid dividends shall be paid in cash and shall not increase the number of shares of common stock issuable upon such conversion.

Redemption rights – At any time after five years from the date of issuance, the holders of a majority of the Class 3 Preference Shares may elect to have the Company redeem the Class 3 Preference Shares for an amount equal to CDN$0.60 per Class 3 Preference Share plus all accrued and unpaid dividends (the “Class 3 Redemption Amount”). At any time after five years from the date of issuance, the Company may, at its option, redeem the Class 3 Preference Shares for an amount equal to CDN$0.60 per Class 3 Preference Share plus all accrued and unpaid dividends.

On June 7, 2011, stockholders of the Company approved a resolution to amend the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation to change the Redemption Amount (as defined in the Certificate of Incorporation) of the Class 3 Preference Shares from CDN$0.60 to US$0.58218 per share, plus all accrued and unpaid dividends thereon.

Liquidation entitlement – In the event of any liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company, the holders of the Class 3 Preference Shares shall be entitled to receive, in preference to the holders of common stock, an amount equal to $0.58218 per Class 3 Preference Share plus all accrued and unpaid dividends.

Other provisions – There will be proportional adjustments for stock splits, stock dividends, recapitalizations and the like.

Accounting for Class 3 Preference Shares

If certain criteria are met, companies must bifurcate conversion options from their host instruments and account for them as free-standing derivative instruments.  The Company has evaluated the conversion option on the Class 3 Preference Shares and determined that the embedded conversion option should not be bifurcated.  Additionally, the Company analyzed the conversion feature and determined that the effective conversion price was higher than the market price at the date of issuance; therefore, no beneficial conversion feature was recorded.  The Company has classified the Class 3 Preference Shares as temporary equity because they are redeemable upon the occurrence of an event that is not solely within the control of the issuer.  As noted above, the holders of the Class 3 Preference Shares may demand redemption at any time after five years from the date of issuance.  As the redemption amount was originally denominated in Canadian dollars, the Company re-measured the redeemable preferred stock amount recorded in the consolidated balance sheet each period, based on prevailing exchange rates.  The resulting adjustment, along with the accretion of the issuance costs, was recorded in stockholders’ equity.

As a result of the aforementioned change in the Class 3 Redemption Amount, from CDN$0.60 to US$0.58218 per share, the Company adjusted the carrying amount of the Class 3 Preference Shares on June 7, 2011 to US$10,000,000.

Class 4 Preference Shares

On June 29, 2011, the Company issued 10,912,265 Class 4 Preference Shares, at a price of $0.4582 per share in a private offering, for aggregate gross proceeds of $5,000,000.  Expenses related to the share issuance were $150,454.  The principal terms of the Class 4 Preference Shares are as follows:
 
Voting rights – The Class 4 Preference Shares have voting rights (one vote per share) equal to those of the Company’s common stock.

Dividend rights – The Class 4 Preference Shares carry a fixed cumulative dividend at a rate of 8% per annum to be paid as and when declared by the Company’s Board of Directors, as well as the right to receive any dividends paid to holders of common stock.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, such dividends are automatically payable in cash upon a liquidation event or redemption by the Company for up to five years.

Conversion rights – The holders of the Class 4 Preference Shares have the right to convert any or all of their Class 4 Preference Shares, at the option of the holder, at any time, into common stock on a one for one basis.  In addition, the Class 4 Preference Shares will automatically be converted into common stock in the event that the holders of a majority of the outstanding Class 4 Preference Shares consent to such conversion.  In the event of conversion to common stock, declared and accrued, but unpaid dividends shall be paid in shares of common stock based on a conversion price equal to the trading price of the common stock at the close of business on the last trading day prior to the date of conversion.

Redemption rights – At any time after five years from the date of issuance, the holders of a majority of the Class 4 Preference Shares may elect to have the Company redeem the Class 4 Preference Shares for an amount equal to $0.4582 per Class 4 Preference Share plus all declared and accrued, but unpaid, dividends (the “Class 4 Redemption Amount”).  At any time after five years from the date of issuance, the Company may, at its option, redeem the Class 4 Preference Shares for an amount equal to $0.4582 per Class 4 Preference Share plus all accrued and unpaid dividends.

Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA Loss (as defined below) improved by $0.1 million, or 5%, as compared to the same period a year ago.
 
Overview
 
Total revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was $10.4 million, an increase of $0.5 million, or 5%, from $9.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011.  The improvement was a result of an increase in services revenue of $0.3 million and an increase in equipment revenue of $0.2 million.
 
The $0.3 million increase in services revenue was comprised of $0.2 million of revenue from new customers coupled with $0.1 million from existing customers.
 
Our net loss attributable to common stockholders for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was $3.5 million, or a loss of $0.03 per basic and diluted share of common stock, compared with a net loss of $4.2 million, or a loss of $0.03 per basic and diluted share of common stock, for the three months ended March 31, 2011.  The decrease in net loss attributable to common stockholders of $0.7 million, or 17%, was due to the following:
 
 
 
·
an increase in total revenue of $0.5 million;
 
·
a decrease  in selling, general and administrative expenses, excluding stock-based compensation of $0.1 million;
 
·
a decrease in stock-based compensation of $0.2 million (non-cash item);
 
·
a decrease in depreciation and amortization of $0.2 million (non-cash item); and
 
·
an adjustment to the carrying amount of redeemable preferred stock of $0.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011 (non-cash item).

 
 offset by the following:
 
 
·
an increase in cost of revenue of $0.4 million;
 
·
an increase in research and development expenses of $0.1 million; and
 
·
an increase in deferred income taxes of $0.1 million (non-cash item).
 
 
Our non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA Loss (as defined below) was $1.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared with $2.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011.  The improvement in non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA Loss was due to the impact of the items noted in the net loss discussion above.  
 
We report non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA Loss because it is a key measure used by management to evaluate our results and make strategic decisions about the Company, including potential acquisitions.  Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA Loss represents net loss before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, unrealized gain/loss on derivatives, investment income, non-controlling interests and foreign exchange gain/loss.   This measure does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by U.S. GAAP and therefore is unlikely to be comparable to the calculation of similar measures used by other companies, and should not be viewed as an alternative to measures of financial performance or changes in cash flows calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
 
 
 
The reconciliation from net loss to non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA Loss is as follows:

 LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
 
Our cash position was $9.3 million at March 31, 2012.  For the three months ended March 31, 2012, we used $2.7 million to fund operations, which included cash inflows from changes in operating assets and liabilities of $1.0 million.   Additionally, we spent $0.3 million to purchase fixed assets.
 
As of March 31, 2012, our principal sources of liquidity included cash and cash equivalents of $9.3 million and trade accounts receivable of $2.9 million.  We continue to closely monitor our cash balances to ensure that we have sufficient cash on hand to meet our operating needs.  Management believes that we have sufficient liquidity to meet our working capital and capital expenditure requirements for the next twelve months.
 
At March 31, 2012, approximately 85% of our cash and cash equivalents were held in accounts with U.S. banks that received a BBB+ rating from Standard and Poor’s and an A3 rating from Moody’s.  The Company believes that these U.S. financial institutions are secure notwithstanding the current global economy and that we will be able to access the remaining balance of bank deposits.  Our investment policy is to invest in low-risk short-term investments which are primarily term deposits.  We have not had a history of any defaults on these term deposits, nor do we expect any in the future given the short term to maturity of these investments.
 
 Our business as currently operated is still in its early stages, with only a few years of operating history.  Our core business and business model has evolved from being a provider of professional information technology services and international programming to a provider of customized, end-to-end interactive, video services for a wide range of professional and collegiate sports properties, cable networks and operators, content owners and distributors, and telecommunication companies.  From our inception, we have incurred substantial net losses and have an accumulated deficit of $78.9 million; however, our non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA Losses (as previously defined) have continuously improved period-over-period and management expects this trend to continue.  We continue to review our operating structure in an attempt to maximize revenue opportunities, further reduce costs and achieve profitability.  Based on our current business plan and internal forecasts, and considering the risks that are present in the current global economy, we believe that our cash on hand will be sufficient to meet our working capital and operating cash requirements for the next twelve months.  However, we will require expenditures of significant funds for marketing, building our subscriber management systems, programming and website development, maintaining adequate video streaming and database software, pursuing and maintaining channel distribution agreements with our channel partners, fees relating to acquiring and maintaining Internet streaming rights to our content and the construction and maintenance of our delivery infrastructure and office facilities.  Cash from operations could be affected by various risks and uncertainties, including, but not limited to, the risks detailed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year December 31, 2011.  If our actual cash needs are greater than forecasted and if cash on hand is insufficient to meet our working capital and cash requirements for the next twelve months, we will require outside capital in addition to cash flow from operations in order to fund our business.  Our short operating history, our current lack of profitability and the prolonged upheaval in the capital markets could each or all be factors that might negatively impact our ability to obtain outside capital on reasonable terms, or at all.  If we were ever unable to obtain needed capital, we would reevaluate and reprioritize our planned capital expenditures and operating activities.  We cannot assure you that we will ultimately be able to generate sufficient revenue or reduce our costs in the anticipated time frame to become profitable and have sustainable net positive cash flows. 
 
Working Capital Requirements
 
Our net working capital deficit at March 31, 2012 was $(5.0) million, a decrease of $2.3 million from the December 31, 2011 net working capital deficit of $(2.7) million.  Our working capital ratios at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 were 0.75 and 0.88, respectively.  Included in current liabilities at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 are approximately $5.0 million and $6.6 million, respectively, of liabilities (deferred revenue) that we do not anticipate settling in cash.  Excluding these liabilities, our working capital ratios at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 were 1.00 and 1.26, respectively.
 
The change in working capital was primarily due to a decrease in current assets of $3.6 million offset by a decrease in current liabilities of $1.3 million.
 
Current assets at March 31, 2012 were $15.3 million, a decrease of $3.6 million from the December 31, 2011 balance of $18.9 million.  The decrease was the result of a decrease in cash and cash equivalents of $3.0 million and a decrease in accounts receivable of $0.6 million.
 
 
Current liabilities at March 31, 2012 were $20.3 million, a decrease of $1.3 million from the December 31, 2011 balance of $21.6 million.  The change was due to a decrease in deferred revenue of $1.7 million and a decrease in accounts payable of $0.1 million offset by an increase in accrued liabilities of $0.5 million.

Recently Issued Accounting Standards
 
 In June 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-05, “Presentation of Comprehensive Income” (“ASU No. 2011-05”), which improves the comparability, consistency, and transparency of financial reporting and increases the prominence of items reported in Other Comprehensive Income (“OCI”) by eliminating the option to present components of OCI as part of the statement of changes in stockholders' equity. The amendments in this standard require that all nonowner changes in stockholders' equity be presented either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. Subsequently in December 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-12, “Deferral of the Effective Date for Amendments to the Presentation of Reclassifications of Items Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income” (“ASU No. 2011-12”), which indefinitely defers the requirement in ASU No. 2011-05 to present on the face of the financial statements reclassification adjustments for items that are reclassified from OCI to net income in the statement(s) where the components of net income and the components of OCI are presented. The amendments in these standards do not change the items that must be reported in OCI, when an item of OCI must be reclassified to net income, or change the option for an entity to present components of OCI gross or net of the effect of income taxes. The amendments in ASU No. 2011-05 and ASU No. 2011-12 are effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011 and are to be applied retrospectively. We adopted ASU No. 2011-05 and ASU No. 2011-12 on January 1, 2012, and its application did not have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial position or results of operations.

In September 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-08, “Testing Goodwill for Impairment” (“ASU No. 2011-08”), which allows entities to use a qualitative approach to test goodwill for impairment. ASU No. 2011-08 permits an entity to first perform a qualitative assessment to determine whether it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying value. If it is concluded that this is the case, it is necessary to perform the currently prescribed two-step goodwill impairment test. Otherwise, the two-step goodwill impairment test is not required. ASU No. 2011-08 is effective for annual and interim goodwill impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2011. The adoption of the provisions of ASU No. 2011-08 will not have a material impact on our consolidated financial position or results of operations.

Off Balance Sheet Arrangements
 
The Company did not have any off balance sheet arrangements as of March 31, 2012.

OUTSTANDING SHARE DATA
 
We had a total of 140,827,310 shares of common stock outstanding at May 4, 2012.  In addition, at such date we had outstanding, in the aggregate, 51,104,322 Class 3 Preference Shares, Class 4 Preference Shares, options, stock appreciation rights, warrants and retention warrants, each of which is exchangeable for one share of common stock upon exercise or conversion.

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

           In connection with the preparation of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2012, our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures, as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (“Exchange Act”).  Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by an issuer in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the issuer’s management, including its principal executive officer and principal financial officer, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.  There are inherent limitations to the effectiveness of any system of disclosure controls and procedures, including the possibility of human error and the circumvention or overriding of the controls and procedures.  Accordingly, even effective disclosure controls and procedures can only provide reasonable assurance of achieving their control objectives.

Based on this evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of March 31, 2012.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

During our most recent fiscal quarter, no change in our internal control over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) occurred that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

The aggregate value of the 190,000 shares of common stock issued to Dr. Kenny and Messrs. Anderson, Battista, Kronfeld and Wang was $47,723 on the date of issuance. The Company sold these shares pursuant to the exemption from registration set forth in Section 4(2) of the Securities Act and Regulation D promulgated there under. This issuance qualified for exemption from registration under the Securities Act because (i) each of the directors was an accredited investor at the time of the sale, (ii) the Company did not engage in any general solicitation or advertising in connection with the sale, and (iii) each of the directors received restricted securities.

2.           On March 30, 2012, the Company issued 625,000 shares of restricted stock, without registration under the securities Act, to Marc Sokol, a former Executive Vice President of the Company residing within the United States, pursuant to a restricted share agreement dated November 12, 2010. Pursuant to the agreement, the Company agreed to issue 2,500,000 shares of common stock to Mr. Sokol over a four-year period, of which 25% of the shares was to be issued on each anniversary of November 12, 2010.  In the event of Mr. Sokol’s termination prior to issuance of all of the shares, all unissued shares were to be forfeited.  Mr. Sokol resigned from his position as Executive Vice President on January 31, 2012 and forfeited 1,875,000 shares of common stock upon his resignation. The aggregate value attributable of the 625,000 shares of common stock was $162,906 on the date of issuance. The Company issued the shares of restricted stock to Mr. Sokol in reliance on the exemption from the registration of the Securities Act afforded by Section 4(2) of the Securities Act because (i) Mr. Sokol was an accredited investor at the time of the sale, (ii) the Company did not engage in any general solicitation or advertising in connection with the sale, and (iii) Mr. Sokol received restricted securities.
