Notes to Condensed Financial Statements

(Unaudited)

 

Note 1 Accounting Policies. The information furnished in this report is unaudited but reflects all adjustments that are necessary, in the opinion of management, for a fair statement of the results for the interim period. The operating results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the operating results to be expected for the full fiscal year. In preparing the accompanying financial statements, management has evaluated subsequent events and has determined that except for the item disclosed in Note 8 below, no events have occurred that require disclosure. The Company believes that although the disclosures contained herein are adequate to prevent the information presented from being misleading, these statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s most recent Form 10-K.

Accounting Pronouncements. In September 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued an amendment to the accounting guidance for goodwill in order to simplify how companies test goodwill for impairment. The amendment permits an entity to first assess the qualitative factors to determine whether it is more likely than not that the fair value of the reporting unit is less than its carrying amount as a basis for determining whether it is necessary to perform the two-step goodwill impairment test. The more-likely-than-not threshold is defined as having a likelihood of more than 50 percent. If, after assessing the totality of events or circumstances, an entity determines it is not more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount, then performing the two-step impairment test is unnecessary. The amendment is effective for annual and interim goodwill impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2011. The adoption of this accounting pronouncement did not have a material impact on our financial statements and we do not expect it to have a material impact on our annual goodwill impairment assessment in the fourth quarter.

In May 2011, the FASB issued an amendment to the accounting guidance for fair value measurement and disclosure. Among other things, the guidance expands the disclosure requirements around fair value measurements categorized in Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy and requires disclosure of the level in the fair value hierarchy of items that are not measured at fair value in the statement of financial position but whose fair value must be disclosed. It also clarifies and expands upon existing requirements for measurement of the fair value of financial assets and liabilities as well as instruments classified in shareholders’ equity. The guidance is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011. The adoption of this accounting pronouncement did not have a material impact on our financial statements.

 

Note 2 Net Loss Per Share. Net loss per share was calculated by dividing the net loss by the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the period. The effect of options and warrants are excluded for the three and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 because the effect is anti-dilutive.

 

Note 3 Income Taxes. We account for income taxes using the asset and liability method. We estimate our income taxes in each of the jurisdictions in which we operate and account for income taxes payable as part of the preparation of our financial statements. This process involves estimating our actual current tax expense as well as assessing temporary differences resulting from differing treatment of items, such as depreciation and amortization, for financial and tax reporting purposes. These differences result in deferred tax assets and liabilities, which are included in our balance sheet to the extent deemed realizable. We assess the likelihood that, and the extent to which, our deferred tax assets will be realized and establish a valuation allowance to reduce deferred tax assets to an amount for which realization is more likely than not. If we increase or decrease a valuation allowance in a given period, then we must increase or decrease the tax provision in our statements of income.

We recognize the financial statement benefit of a tax position only after determining that the relevant tax authority would more likely than not sustain the position following an audit. For tax positions meeting the more-likely-than-not threshold, the amount recognized in the financial statements is the largest benefit that has a greater than 50 percent likelihood of being realized upon ultimate settlement with the relevant tax authority.

As of June 30, 2012, there are no open positions for which the unrecognized tax benefits will significantly increase or decrease during the next twelve months. Additionally, tax years still open for examination by Federal and major state agencies as of June 30, 2012 are 2007-2011.

Table of Contents

As of December 31, 2011, we had U.S. net operating loss carry-forwards of approximately $13,915,000, federal alternative minimum tax credit carry-forwards of $111,000, Minnesota net operating loss carry-forwards of $4,203,000, federal research and development tax credits of $1,318,000 and Minnesota research and development tax credits of $471,000. The losses and tax credits are carried forward for federal and state corporate income taxes and may be used to reduce future taxes.

Significant management judgment is required in determining any valuation allowance recorded against our net deferred tax assets Each reporting period, management reviews various factors including, but not limited to, prior taxable income, projected future taxable income, changes in technology and tax planning strategies to determine if an adjustment is needed to the valuation allowance. Due to uncertainties related to our ability to utilize all of our deferred tax assets, as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, we continue to maintain a valuation allowance of $5,690,000. Should the remaining $5,690,000 valuation allowance be reversed in the future, a liability of up to $3,166,000 would have to be established for uncertain tax positions.

We recorded a benefit for income taxes of $546,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2012 and a benefit for income taxes of $973,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012. This benefit is based on the current period and year-to-date losses, respectively, and the estimated annual effective tax rate of 35.4%. Comparatively for the same periods last year, we recorded tax expense of $20,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2011, and a benefit for income taxes of $153,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2011.

The future utilization of NOL carryforwards is subject to certain limitations under Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code. This section generally relates to a 50 percent change in ownership of a company over a three-year period. The acquisition of additional shares by a greater than 5% shareholder in January 2007 resulted in an “ownership change” under Section 382. An updated Section 382 analysis was recently completed in February 2012. The results of that analysis indicate that no further “ownership changes” under Section 382 have occurred. Therefore, the limitation caused by the January 2007 ownership change continues to apply against the Company’s NOLs pre-dating the ownership change date.

At December 31, 2011, the Company had a cumulative 382 limitation of approximately $5,075,000. Unless another 50 percent ownership change is triggered in the future, for each of the years ending after December 31, 2011, the Company’s annual 382 limitation is $978,000 until the carryover period expires.

On February 21, 2012, our Board of Directors adopted a Tax Asset Protection Plan (the “Plan”) intended to protect our tax assets. The Plan is designed to reduce the likelihood that we experience an additional ownership change by discouraging any person or group from becoming a 5-percent shareholder and dissuading existing 5-percent or greater shareholders from acquiring additional shares of MakeMusic’s common stock. The Plan will expire and terminate on the earliest of February 20, 2015 or, if applicable, the date on which our Board of Directors determines that the Plan is no longer necessary for the preservation of our tax benefits. For more information regarding the Plan, please refer to our Current Report on Form 8-K filed on February 22, 2012, together with the exhibits attached thereto.

 

Note 4 Stock-Based Compensation. The MakeMusic, Inc. 2003 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2003 Plan”), as amended, reserves a total of 1,500,000 shares of our common stock for issuance under stock options, restricted stock, performance awards and stock appreciation rights. The 2003 Plan is administered by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors, which recommends to the Board persons eligible to receive awards and the number of shares and/or options subject to each award, the terms, conditions, performance measures, and other provisions of the award. Readers should refer to Note 5 of our financial statements on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011 for additional information related to our stock-based compensation plans.

We measure stock-based compensation cost at the grant date based on the fair value of the award and recognize the compensation expense over the requisite service period, which is generally the vesting period. For the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, we recognized $46,000 and $114,000, respectively, and for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, we recognized $148,000 and $184,000, respectively, of expense related to stock-based compensation.

Stock Options

We use the Black-Scholes option pricing model to estimate the fair value of stock-based awards with the weighted average assumptions noted in the following table.

 

     June 30,     June 30,  
     2012     2011  

Black-Scholes Model:

    

Risk-free interest rate

     0.57     1.21

Expected life, in years

     3.4        4.2   

Expected volatility

     57.08     70.51

Dividend yield

     0.00     0.00

Expected volatility is based on the historical volatility of our share price in the period prior to option grant equivalent to the expected life of the options. The expected term is based on management’s estimate of when the option will be exercised which is generally consistent with the vesting period. The risk-free interest rate for periods within the contractual life of the option is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant.

Note 5 Segment Reporting.

MakeMusic reports results of operations by two unique reportable segments, Notation and SmartMusic.

The Notation segment includes the design, development and sales and marketing of music notation software in the Finale family of music notation software products, MusicXML and Dolet software and Garritan sound libraries.

The SmartMusic segment includes the design, development, amortization of capitalized song title development and sales and marketing of the subscription-based SmartMusic product line and related accessories.

The costs included in each of the reportable segments’ operating results include the direct costs of the products sold to customers and operating expenses managed by each of the reportable segments.

The remaining activities are included in “Other.” These are unallocated expenses which include costs related to selling and corporate functions, including general and administrative and business systems functions that are not directly attributable to a particular segment. Unallocated expenses are reported in the reconciliation of the segment totals to consolidated totals as “Other” items. As a result, reportable segment results of operations are not representative of the operating profit of the products in these reportable segments.

MakeMusic does not allocate its balance sheet assets by segment because such information is not available nor is it used by the chief operating decision maker. Therefore, information relating to segment assets is not presented.

Note 7 Business Acquisitions.

On December 30, 2011, we acquired all of the outstanding stock of Garritan Corporation, a privately held software musical instrument company (“Garritan”). In addition, during November 2011 we acquired select assets from Recordare, an internet music publishing and software company. The acquisitions provide new products, technology, brands and resources that are complementary to MakeMusic and provide growth opportunities for the future. The combined purchase price was $2,500,000, including, in connection with the acquisition of Garritan, $125,000 which is subject to an 18-month holdback. The holdback is payable in shares of MakeMusic’s common stock, with a share price equal to $4.52, which represented the average closing price of MakeMusic common stock for the 20 trading days prior to the closing of the acquisition. Net cash paid upon closing of the transactions was $2,344,000 which includes the purchase price, net of the 18-month holdback and cash received.

The fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed from Garritan and Recordare include the following:

The Garritan operations results are included in the consolidated financial statements since the date of acquisition on December 30, 2011. The table below reflects our pro forma combined results of operations for the six months ended June 30, 2011 as if the acquisition had taken place on January 1, 2011.

Combined results for the Company and Garritan for the six months ended June 30, 2011 were adjusted for the following in order to create the unaudited pro forma results in the table above:

 

   

Elimination of $8,000 in sales of product by Garritan Corporation to MakeMusic, Inc. and the corresponding cost of revenues that would be eliminated in consolidation.

 

   

Adjustment of $20,000 for amortization based on the fair value of assets acquired and estimated useful lives.

 

   

Additional compensation expense of $44,000.

 

   

A reduction of $4,000 to eliminate depreciation expense for property and equipment not acquired in the transaction.

 

   

A reduction in interest income of $7,000 associated with the reduction of the Company’s cash used in funding the acquisition.

 

   

Tax expense of $37,000 using an effective tax rate of 37%.

The pro forma unaudited results do not purport to be indicative of the results which would have been obtained had the acquisition been completed as of the beginning of the first quarter of 2011. In addition, they do not include any benefits that may result from the acquisition due to synergies that may be derived.

Note 8 Subsequent Events.

On July 15, 2012, MakeMusic received a proposal from LaunchEquity Partners, LLC to acquire the operating assets of MakeMusic, excluding cash, and assume the related liabilities of MakeMusic, free and clear of all liens and encumbrances, for $13.5 million. The proposal contemplates that MakeMusic would adopt a plan of liquidation, which would include a distribution of MakeMusic’s then available cash to existing shareholders. LaunchEquity and certain of its affiliates currently collectively own approximately 28% of MakeMusic’s outstanding common stock.

MakeMusic’s Board of Directors has appointed a Special Committee of independent, disinterested directors to review and consider the proposal, in consultation with financial and legal advisors, and determine the course of action that it believes is in the best interests of MakeMusic and its shareholders. The Board has authorized the Special Committee to consider the full range of available strategic alternatives. The Special Committee is continuing to evaluate strategic alternatives including, but not limited to, the July 15, 2012 proposal from its largest shareholder, LaunchEquity Partners, LLC, other potential strategic transactions to realize the long-term value of MakeMusic, or continuing as an independent, public company with our current growth plans. The Board and Special Committee believe that completing the strategic review process is one way to ensure that MakeMusic stockholders have the best opportunity to realize a full and fair value for their investment. The Special Committee has retained Lazard Middle Market LLC, a subsidiary of Lazard Ltd, to advise the Special Committee during the process. No assurance can be given as to whether this process will result in a proposed transaction, whether any transaction that may be proposed as a result of such process would be acceptable to the Company, the Special Committee and the Board, or whether any such proposed transaction will be announced or consummated.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

Executive Overview

MakeMusic’s mission is to develop and market solutions that transform how music is composed, taught, learned and performed. This is accomplished by:

 

   

Providing integrated technology, content and web services to enhance and expand how music is taught, learned and prepared for performance.

 

   

Providing music education content developers with a technology-enriched publishing platform that leverages their copyrighted assets while simultaneously increasing the content and value of the SmartMusic library.

 

   

Offering software solutions for engraving and electronically distributing sheet music.

MakeMusic develops and markets two product lines, notation and SmartMusic, that reinforce each other’s features and competitiveness. The notation product line includes the well-established Finale® family of music notation software products which are utilized by music colleges and composers around the world in the creation of music scores. Finale serves a large and stable customer base, and generates revenue through sales of new version releases. Also included in the notation product line is MusicXMLTM, the industry standard open format for notation software and Garritan TM sound sample libraries.

SmartMusic® is a subscription-based product directed toward the very large and constantly renewing market of music students and music teachers. SmartMusic combines a software application with a library of thousands of music titles and skill-development exercises. It provides students and musicians with a compelling practice or audition experience and music teachers with the efficiency and effectiveness to reach more students and assess student achievement and growth.

In the fourth quarter of 2011, we announced the acquisition of select assets of Recordare, LLC and the acquisition of Garritan Corporation. We believe these acquisitions provide new products, technology, brands and employees that are complementary to MakeMusic and provide growth and technology opportunities for the future.

Table of Contents

Our first six months of 2012 resulted in a growth in sales for MakeMusic. Overall, net revenue increased 13% during the first six months of 2012 as compared to the first six months of 2011. SmartMusic revenue grew 16% due to our year over year subscription growth from 173,295 subscriptions to 185,968 subscriptions. Notation revenue increased 10% primarily due to added sales of Garritan sound libraries resulting from the acquisition of Garritan Corporation. This increase was offset by lower sales of Finale PrintMusic as this product has not been updated since September 2010. Additionally, there were lower sales of Finale NotePad compared to the first half of 2011 because we began offering the product as a free download effective with the release of Finale NotePad 2012 on February 15, 2012. Gross margin percentages were comparable at 85% in the first six months of 2012 and 85% in the first six months of 2011.

Operating expenses increased in the first six months of 2012 due to increased selling and marketing expenses as a result of the planned expansion of our direct sales force and company-wide strategic sales and marketing initiatives. General and administrative expenses increased primarily due to increased legal and consulting fees relating to the Tax Asset Protection Plan that became effective February 21, 2012, increased accounting fees for reporting requirements relating to the acquisition and dissolution of Garritan Corporation and expenses relating to the departure of our Chief Executive Officer in June 2012, including legal fees and accrued severance expenses. Development expenses were greater in the first six months of 2012 primarily due to personnel costs resulting from the Chief Technology Officer position, which was open in the first six months of 2011, and added personnel and development costs to support technology initiatives and the addition of the Garritan sound libraries and MusicXML technologies. In the first six months of 2011, we incurred expenses of $225,000 relating to a patent infringement settlement. There were no comparable expenses in the first six months of 2012.

Our net loss before taxes in the first six months of 2012 was $2,751,000 compared to $639,000 in 2011. The tax benefit in the first six months of 2012 was $973,000 compared to $153,000 in the first six months of 2011. As a result of the factors mentioned, we reported net loss of $1,778,000 in the first six months of 2012 compared to net loss of $486,000 in the first six months of 2011.

We believe there is growth potential with SmartMusic software, an interactive music teaching, practicing and learning solution for band, orchestra and vocal programs. SmartMusic is subscription-based software for use in the classroom and in the student’s home. SmartMusic enhances and transforms the hours spent practicing by putting students inside a professional band or orchestra, so that they can hear how the music is supposed to be performed and how their part fits in. This makes practicing much more engaging, causing students to practice longer and more often. SmartMusic also offers a rich variety of effective practice tools that make practice time more efficient and productive. The combination of making practice time more engaging and productive leads to rapid student skill-development, increased student confidence, higher student retention, and stronger music programs.

Teachers use the SmartMusic Gradebook™ capability of the educator’s subscription to issue assignments to students, receive completed assignments from students, assess student achievement, and manage student records. Music teachers are challenged to reach all of their students in the way they passionately desire. The SmartMusic technology allows teachers to be more efficient and effective, allowing them to affect more of their students in ways they never imagined. SmartMusic also addresses the increasing desire and need of administrators to document the assessment of student’s achievement. Assessment standards have become topics of intense interest at the level of state education administrators and MakeMusic is becoming recognized as providing the technology that allows them to accomplish their goals. Students also find that SmartMusic is a more satisfying and helpful way to practice and learn to sing or play a musical instrument. SmartMusic allows practice to be more engaging and rewarding, which results in the acceleration of students’ growth and achievement.

SmartMusic 2012 introduced new vocal and site-reading technology and included site-singing exercises which can be assessed for both pitch and rhythm. Choral directors and general music teachers now have access to the same award-winning interactive technology that has been available to band and orchestra directors.

In July of 2011, we released a mobile application called SmartMusic InboxTM. SmartMusic Inbox is a free application for both Android and iOS platforms for mobile use by SmartMusic teachers that enables them to listen and grade assignments with ease and mobility.

We define renewed subscriptions as those subscriptions that educators purchase within the two-month period after their prior subscription ended. Because of changes to the start of school from year to year, fluctuations in the date that music teachers implement their curriculum, and promotional programs that encourage early renewals, the majority of subscribers renew their subscriptions within approximately a two-month window of the anniversary date of their previous subscription rather than exactly on the anniversary date. As a result, we believe that using the above definition of a renewal more accurately reflects the renewal rate for SmartMusic educator subscriptions. In the second quarter of 2012, the educator renewal rate was unchanged from the first quarter of 2012. The educator renewal rate was 76% for each of the quarters ended March 31, 2012 and June 30, 2012. The educator renewal rate in the second quarter of 2012 decreased compared to the second quarter of 2011 rate of 86%. During the second quarter of 2011, we implemented a subscription promotion for our site agreement customers that provided for a 15-month subscription for the price of 12 months. We believe that some SmartMusic site agreement customers not only renewed early as a result of this promotion but also increased the number of subscriptions purchased during that period.

In 2012, we are focused on four strategic initiatives that include enhancing our technology architecture, extending our core product value into new product innovations and platforms, developing new and leveraging existing distribution channels and strengthening our marketing strategy focusing on our brand promise.

We have achieved positive cash flow from operations for the last seven years, including the most recent year ended December 31, 2011. Our quarterly results will fluctuate as a result of the seasonality of the education market and timing of our Finale release cycle. Due to current economic conditions, concerns over school budgets and our planned strategic investments, we are cautious regarding our future financial projections. We expect increased revenues and, in particular, growth in SmartMusic subscriptions and sound library sales from the acquisition of Garritan Corporation. However, we are making investments in our operations and technology which we expect will result in reduction in cash balances during 2012.

In our Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission for the year ended December 31, 2011, we identified critical accounting policies and estimates for our business that we are incorporating herein by reference.

Net revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2012 increased 21% compared to net revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and increased 13% when comparing the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011.

Notation revenue increased by $446,000 to $2,118,000 when comparing the three-month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 and by $383,000, to $4,389,000, when comparing the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011. Increases during the quarter were due to increased direct Finale sales and $271,000 of added Garritan sound libraries sales due to the acquisition of Garritan Corporation. These increases were partially offset by lower Finale PrintMusic sales as this product has not been updated since September 2010. Additionally, Finale NotePad sales are lower when compared to the second quarter of 2011 because we began offering the product as a free download effective with the release of Finale NotePad 2012 on February 15, 2012. Increases during the six months ended June 30, 2012 were primarily due to $483,000 added sales of Garritan sound libraries resulting from the acquisition of Garritan Corporation. This increase was offset by lower sales of Finale PrintMusic and Finale NotePad compared to the six months ended June 30, 2011.

SmartMusic revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2012 was $1,905,000, an increase of $264,000, or 16%, over the three months ended June 30, 2011 and an increase of $534,000, or 16%, to $3,835,000, when comparing the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011. The increase in revenue is due to the growth of total SmartMusic subscriptions. SmartMusic subscriptions have increased due in part to our direct sales force which focuses on district-level sales. Revenue for these subscriptions is recognized over the life of the subscription which is typically 12 months. Total earned SmartMusic subscription revenue for the three-month period ended June 30, 2012 was $1,787,000, an increase of $296,000, or 20%, over the three-month period ended June 30, 2011. Total earned SmartMusic subscription revenue for the six-month period ended June 30, 2012 was $3,494,000, an increase of $574,000, or 20%, over the six-month period ended June 30, 2011.This increase was due to the increase in the total number of subscriptions and average sales price per subscription. Total unearned SmartMusic subscription revenue (deferred revenue) was $2,947,000 as of June 30, 2012, an increase of $248,000, or 9.2%, over the balance at June 30, 2011 and a decrease of $1,338,000, or 31%, compared to the balance of $4,285,000 at December 31, 2011 due to seasonality. Deferred SmartMusic revenue represents the future revenue to be recorded on current subscriptions and fluctuates based on new subscription sales, the total number of subscriptions and the remaining life of those subscriptions.

SmartMusic has shown sustained growth since its launch. More than 11,200 educators had purchased SmartMusic as of June 30, 2012, an increase of 16% over the 9,630 educators that had purchased it as of June 30, 2011. Total SmartMusic subscriptions as of June 30, 2012 number 185,968, representing a net gain of 12,673, or 7%, over the June 30, 2011 subscription count of 173,295.

Many SmartMusic customers, especially new customers, also purchase accessories (primarily microphones) that are used with the software. Revenue for the sales of accessories, included in the SmartMusic revenue category, for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 was $90,000, which was a decrease of $22,000, or 20%, from the revenue of $112,000 for SmartMusic accessories in the quarter ended June 30, 2011. Revenue for the sales of SmartMusic accessories for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $264,000, which was a decrease of $6,000, or 2%, from $270,000 of SmartMusic accessories revenue in the six months ended June 30, 2011. This decrease is primarily due to a decrease in the number of net new subscriptions added during the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 as compared to the number of net new subscriptions added during the same periods of the prior year.

Development expenses increased 69% to $1,829,000, from $1,085,000, when comparing the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011. Development expenses increased 52% to $3,485,000, from $2,300,000, when comparing the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011. Development expenses consist primarily of internal payroll, payments to independent contractors and related expenses for the development and maintenance of our Finale notation, Garritan sound libraries, MusicXML, SmartMusic and SmartMusic Gradebook products as well as non-capitalized SmartMusic repertoire development, business systems and quality assurance. Notation development expenses increased due to personnel costs relating to the Chief Technology Officer position, which was open in the first and second quarters of 2011, and added personnel and contractor costs to support technology initiatives and the Garritan sound libraries and MusicXML technologies. SmartMusic development expenses increased primarily due to personnel costs relating to the Chief Technology Officer position and contract labor to support our strategic developments. During the quarter ended June 30, 2012, 120 new SmartMusic large ensemble band, jazz ensemble, and orchestra titles with pre-authored assignments were released, comparable to 119 new large ensemble titles in the quarter ended June 30, 2011.

income from operations due to increased development and selling and marketing expenses offset by increased revenues. Income from operations for SmartMusic decreased during the three and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012 when compared the same periods in 2011. SmartMusic revenue increases due to the increased number of subscriptions were offset by the increased development and selling and marketing expenses. The increase in the other loss is due to increased legal and consulting fees relating to the Tax Asset Protection Plan effective February 21, 2012, accounting fees for reporting requirements relating to the acquisition and dissolution of Garritan Corporation and legal fees and accrued severance expenses relating to the departure of our Chief Executive Officer.

Net Loss

Net loss in the three months ended June 30, 2012 was $938,000, or $0.19 per basic and diluted share, compared to net loss of $305,000, or $0.06 per basic and diluted share, in the three months ended June 30, 2011. Net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $1,778,000, or $0.36 per basic and diluted share, compared to net loss of $486,000, or $0.10 per basic and diluted share, in the same period of 2011. The increase in net loss in the first quarter of 2012 is primarily due to increased operating expenses as explained above. The tax benefit was $546,000 in the three months ended June 30, 2012 and a net tax benefit of $973,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012, compared to a net tax expense of $20,000 and net tax benefit of $153,000, respectively, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011.The increased tax benefit is attributed to the greater loss from operations.

Liquidity and capital resources

Net cash used in operating activities was $2,255,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012, compared to $1,657,000 of cash used in operating activities in the six months ended June 30, 2011. The increase in cash used in the first six months of 2012 compared to the same period in 2011 is primarily due to the greater net loss reported in the first six months of 2012 and greater decrease in deferred SmartMusic revenue partially offset by increased accrued liabilities relating to legal expenses and severance costs.

Net cash used in investing activities was $1,115,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012, compared to $395,000 cash used in investing activities for the comparable period of 2011. The increase is primarily due to an increase in capitalization of software development, primarily relating to the technology architecture modernization relating to our notation business, repertoire development and Garritan sound libraries. Our spending on repertoire development increased due to the overall number of titles being developed.

Net cash used in financing activities was $4,000 in the first six months of 2012 compared to $303,000 in the first six months of 2011. During the first six months of 2011, $291,000 was used to repurchase company shares under the Stock Repurchase Program. The Stock Repurchase Program was discontinued effective May 6, 2011. Therefore, no cash was used to repurchase shares during the first six months of 2012.

Cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2012 was $5,922,000 compared to $9,296,000 as of December 31, 2011. The decrease in cash is due to seasonality and increased operational spending during the first six months of 2012. Our quarterly revenues and operating cash flows are typically seasonal, with the first and second quarters being historically lower than the third and fourth quarters. This seasonal pattern is primarily due to timing of the historical upgrade releases of Finale, which in recent years has occurred in the second or third quarters, and school budget cycles. We are not anticipating a major Finale product release during 2012 as we focus on upgrading the underlying technology, file format and further product enhancements for future releases.

We are investing in our technology, development and sales and marketing initiatives, and while we expect an increase in our revenues and, in particular, continued growth in SmartMusic subscriptions, plus sales of Garritan sound libraries, we expect an overall reduction in our cash balances over the next twelve months.
