This discussion and analysis of the financial statements and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements, including the related notes thereto, contained elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q

Unless noted otherwise, management's discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations pertain to our continuing operations.


We were incorporated in the State of Delaware in August 1987. We were originally incorporated as Blyth Holdings, Inc. and our name was changed to Omnis Technology Corporation in September 1997. Effective December 1, 2000, we completed the acquisition of PickAx, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("PickAx"). Concurrent with the acquisition, we changed our name to Raining Data Corporation. On April 17, 2008, we changed our name to TigerLogic Corporation. Reference to "we," "our," "us" or the "Company" in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q means TigerLogic Corporation and our subsidiaries.

On November 15, 2013, we completed the sale of our assets dedicated to the multidimensional database management system ("MDMS") and related connectivity products known as the MDMS family of products, including D3, mvBase, mvEnterprise and the Pick connectivity products (the "MDMS Business"), and the related underlying enterprise resource planning ("ERP") platform required to support the MDMS Business, to Rocket Software, Inc. ("Rocket") for a total sale price of approximately $22 million (the "Sale"), of which approximately $19.8 million was received at closing and approximately $2.2 million is being held by a third party escrow agent for 12 months to serve as security for our general indemnification obligations. As a result of this divestiture, the historical results of the MDMS Business has been reclassified and presented as discontinued operations for all periods presented. Also, in connection with, and effective on, the closing of the Sale, we assigned to Rocket our Lease Agreement with The Irvine Company, dated November 9, 2004, as amended on December 7, 2009. The lease was for approximately 15,000 square feet of office space in Irvine, California and ran through October 2015.

The divestiture is a very important step forward towards our transformation to take advantage of what we believe to be great opportunities for our social and mobile products. We believe the sale of the MDMS Business will allow us to better focus our resources, and provide the capital to accelerate the development, marketing and sales of our Postano, Storycode and Omnis platforms.

As a result of the divestiture, we anticipate that our financial results will be impacted in the near term. As the MDMS Business represented a significant portion of historical revenue, revenue will decline significantly in the near term until we are able to increase sales from our continuing or newly developed product lines. There can be no assurances that we will be able to fully replace the MDMS revenue with revenue from our retained or newly developed products quickly, or at all.


Our principal continuing business consists of: 1) the design, development, sale, and support of rapid application development software; and 2) a social and mobile platform, which includes a social media content aggregation and visualization platform, Internet search enhancement tools, and the design and development of mobile applications and digital publications. Our products allow customers to create and enhance flexible software applications for their own needs. Our Omnis Rapid Application Development ("RAD") software is a development platform that allows mobile centric developers the ability to build a software code once and quickly deploy an application cross-platform in any environment. Our Postano product is a real-time social media content aggregation, activation, and visualization platform. Our Internet search enhancement tools include the yolink browser plug-in, yolink API for web sites, and yolink search plug-in for WordPress sites. Our mobile solutions include the design and hosting of mobile applications and digital publishing solutions, such as interactive marketing collaterals, brochures, and retail applications.

We primarily sell our RAD software products through established distribution channels consisting of original equipment manufacturers ("OEMs"), system integrators, specialized vertical application software developers and consulting organizations, as well as through our sales personnel. Our social media content aggregation platform and Internet search enhancement tools are generally sold through our sales personnel and web sites, as well as through co-marketing arrangements with third parties. Our mobile applications and digital publishing solutions are generally sold through our sales personnel. Outside the United States, we maintain direct sales offices in the United Kingdom, France, and Germany. Approximately 51% and 60% of our revenue from continuing operations came from sales through our offices located outside the United States for the three months ended June 30, 2014, and 2013, respectively. We generally license our RAD software on a per-CPU, per-server, per-port or per-user basis. We generally license our hosted Postano platform on a time-based subscription basis. We license our yolink products at prices based on usage measured in a variety of ways. We generally sell our mobile application design and digital publishing services on a project fee basis, and charge monthly fees for hosting mobile applications. In addition to software products and hosted services, we provide continuing software maintenance and support and, to a limited extent, other professional services to our customers, including consulting and training services to help plan, analyze, implement and maintain application software based on our products. For each of the three months ended June 30, 2014, and 2013, no single customer accounted for more than 10% of our revenue.

In addition, one of the elements of our business strategy involves expansion through the acquisition of businesses, assets, products or technologies that allow us to complement our existing product offerings, expand our market coverage or enhance our technological capabilities, such as our acquisition of privately-held Storycode, Inc., a mobile applications development and publishing company in January 2013. We continually evaluate and explore strategic opportunities as they arise, including business combination transactions, strategic partnerships, and the purchase or sale of assets, including tangible and intangible assets, such as our recently completed divestiture of the MDMS Business.

TigerLogic Yolink

Yolink is a next-generation search enhancement technology that increases the effectiveness of search functionality across web sites and services. Yolink can search both structured markup, such as HTML, and binary code documents as well as unstructured, raw text documents by layering a common semantic model across them, and using this to organize and effect full-text searches across documents. Yolink searches behind links and through web sites to retrieve content based on keyword search terms. To facilitate the user's review of search results, each keyword is highlighted with a unique color. This capability is especially useful for reviewing and searching through the many web pages that contain hundreds, if not thousands, of embedded hyperlinks. Yolink technology can be applied to many platforms and Internet delivery methodologies. Yolink application programming interfaces (known as APIs) allow developers to integrate yolink search technologies with their web sites, services or applications. Yolink is available for download at

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

The discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations is based on our consolidated financial statements, prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The preparation of these financial statements requires management to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue and expenses and disclosure of contingent liabilities.

On an on-going basis, we evaluate our estimates, including those related to revenue recognition and accounting for goodwill and intangible assets. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

We have identified the accounting policies below as the policies critical to our business operations and the understanding of our results of operations. We believe the following critical accounting policies and the related judgments and estimates affect the preparation of our consolidated financial statements:

REVENUE RECOGNITION. Revenue attributable to an element in a customer arrangement is recognized when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, delivery has occurred, the fee is fixed or determinable, and collectability is probable. If, at the outset of the customer arrangement, we determine that the arrangement fee is not fixed or determinable, we defer the revenue and recognize the revenue when the arrangement fee becomes due and payable. We do not have price protection programs or conditional acceptance agreements, and sales of our products are made without right of return.

For contracts with multiple software and software-related elements, we recognize revenue for the delivered elements, generally software licenses, using the residual value method when vendor-specific objective evidence (VSOE) of fair value exists for all undelivered elements, consisting primarily of post-contract customer support (PCS). PCS is recognized ratably over the support term.

For our hosted software subscription arrangements, services revenue is recognized ratably over the subscription period. We also have services revenue consisting of consulting and training services that are either recognized as the services are performed or upon the completion of the services depending on the nature of the services. When subscription arrangements involve multiple elements that qualify as separate units of accounting, we allocate arrangement consideration to all deliverables based on the relative stand-alone selling price method in accordance with the selling price hierarchy, which includes:
(i) VSOE if available; (ii) third-party evidence (TPE) if VSOE is not available; and (iii) best estimate of selling price (BESP) if neither VSOE nor TPE is available. Revenue allocated to each deliverable, limited to the amount not contingent on future performance, is then recognized when the basic revenue recognition criteria are met for the respective deliverables.

We determine whether VSOE can be established based on our historical pricing and discounting practices for the specific deliverable when sold separately. In determining VSOE, we require that a substantial majority of the selling prices fall within a reasonably narrow pricing range. We have established VSOE for our PCS included in our software arrangements, but have not yet been able to establish VSOE for our subscription or other services.

When VSOE cannot be established for our subscription and other services, we apply judgment with respect to whether we can establish a selling price based on TPE. TPE is determined based on third party pricing practices for similar deliverables when sold separately. Generally, our pricing strategy differs from that of our peers and our offerings contain a significant level of differentiation such that the comparable pricing of services with similar functionality cannot be obtained. Furthermore, typically, we are unable to reliably determine what similar competitors services' selling prices are on a stand-alone basis. As a result, we have not been able to establish selling prices based on TPE.

When we are unable to establish a selling price for our subscription and other services using VSOE or TPE, we use BESP in our allocation of arrangement consideration. The objective of BESP is to determine the price at which we would transact a sale if the respective elements were sold on a stand-alone basis. We estimate BESP for services by considering multiple factors including, but not limited to, prices charged for similar offerings, market conditions, competitive landscape, costs of providing the services, and our overall pricing practices. We currently use BESP in order to allocate the selling price to our deliverables in multiple element subscription arrangements.

BUSINESS COMBINATIONS AND GOODWILL. We have entered into certain acquisitions, and in the future may make further acquisitions. The application of the purchase method of accounting for business combinations requires the use of significant estimates and assumptions in the determination of the fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed in order to properly allocate the purchase price consideration between depreciable assets, assumed liabilities, intangibles, and goodwill. Our estimates of the fair values of assets and liabilities acquired are based upon assumptions that we believe to be reasonable and include assistance from independent third-party appraisal firms. When equity instruments are issued as part of the purchase price consideration, we measure them at fair value as of the date of the acquisition.

We assess the impairment of goodwill whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable and at least annually during the fourth quarter of each fiscal year. Impairment of goodwill is tested at the reporting unit level by comparing the reporting unit's carrying amount, including goodwill, to its fair value. For purposes of this analysis, we consider ourselves a single reporting unit. Factors we consider to be important that would trigger an impairment review include the following:

Significant underperformance relative to expected historical or projected future operating results;

Timing of our revenue, significant changes in the manner of use of the acquired assets or the strategy for the overall business;

          Significant negative industry or economic trends;

          Significant decline in our stock price for a sustained period; and

          Our market capitalization falling below our net book value for a
sustained period.

Determining the fair value of a reporting unit under the first step of the goodwill impairment test and determining the fair value of individual assets and liabilities of a reporting unit (including unrecognized intangible assets) under the second step of the goodwill impairment test is judgmental in nature and often involves the use of significant estimates and assumptions. These estimates and assumptions could have a significant impact on whether or not an impairment charge is recognized and the magnitude of any such charge. Given our single reporting unit structure, a key input in estimating of our reporting unit fair value is our stock price as reported by Nasdaq and our related market capitalization. No impairment of goodwill has been identified during any of the periods presented as our market capitalization had exceeded our net book value. Our stock price has been volatile and, on some days during the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2014, our market capitalization fell slightly below our net book value. We continue to monitor our stock price and to the extent it continues to fall below our net book value for sustained periods of time, it may trigger an additional goodwill impairment test such that we may be required to obtain an independent third party valuation to incorporate other relevant factors in estimating the fair value of our Company including but not limited to, any control premium. To the extent the fair value of our Company is below its carrying amount, we would be required to perform the second step of the goodwill impairment test to measure any impairment of goodwill.

Intangible assets with finite useful life are amortized using the straight-line method over their estimated period of economic benefit. Our intangible assets were acquired in connection with our acquisition of Storycode in January 2013. We estimate that our technology intangible asset has a useful life of seven years and our trade and domain names intangible asset has a useful life of ten years. We evaluate our intangible assets for impairment whenever events and change in circumstances occur which may warrant revised estimate of useful lives or recognition of an impairment loss.

RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENT. In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standard Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), which provides guidance for revenue recognition. This ASU affects any entity that either enters into contracts with customers to transfer goods or services or enters into contracts for the transfer of non-financial assets. This ASU will supersede the revenue recognition requirements in Topic 605, Revenue Recognition, and most industry-specific guidance. This ASU also supersedes some cost guidance included in Subtopic 605-35, Revenue Recognition-Construction-Type and Production-Type Contracts. The core principle of the guidance is that an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchanged for those goods or services. The new standard is effective for our company in fiscal 2018. Early application is not permitted. The standard permits the use of either the retrospective or cumulative effect transition method. We are evaluating the effect that ASU 2014-09 will have on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures. We have not yet selected a transition method nor have we determined the effect of the standard on our ongoing financial reporting.

In April 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-08, Presentation of Financial Statements (Topic 205) and Property, Plant, and Equipment (Topic 360), which provides guidance for reporting discontinued operations and disclosures of disposals of components of an entity. This ASU affects an entity that has either a component that is disposed of or meets the criteria to be classified as held for sale. The core principle of the guidance is that a disposal of a component, or a group of components of an entity is required to be reported in discontinued operations if the disposal represents a strategic shift and has (or will have) a major effect on an entity's operations and financial results. This standard is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2014, including interim periods within that reporting period (our fiscal 2016). We do not expect the adoption of this ASU to have a material impact on our financial position and results of operations.
