QUMU CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(unaudited)


(1)
Basis of Presentation and Nature of Business
The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Qumu Corporation, its subsidiaries, and prior to July 3, 2013, its majority-owned joint venture, collectively hereinafter referred to as “Qumu” or the “Company.” All references to Qumu, Inc. shall mean the Company's subsidiary located in San Bruno, California. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
The Company conducts its operations through two businesses consisting of 1) its enterprise video content management software business and 2) its disc publishing business. Qumu’s growing enterprise video content management software business provides the tools businesses need to create, manage, secure, distribute and measure the success of their videos. Qumu helps organizations around the world realize the greatest possible value from video and other rich content they create and publish. Qumu’s disc publishing business provides customers with industry-leading solutions that label, archive, distribute and protect content on CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray Discs. The Company markets its products to customers in North America, Europe and Asia.
Change in Estimation Methodology for Establishing VSOE for Software Support Maintenance Contracts
Since its acquisition of Qumu, Inc. in October 2011 through December 31, 2013, the Company utilized the bell-shaped curve approach for determining vendor specific objective evidence (“VSOE”) of fair value for its software support maintenance contracts and professional services sold by its enterprise video content management software business. Because the enterprise video content management software business is rapidly growing and it is experiencing changing pricing policies, types of customers, types and levels of support offerings, and the size and scope of arrangements, management believes that the stated renewal rate set forth in its software support maintenance contracts provides better evidence for that deliverables’ fair value. As a result, effective January 1, 2014, the Company establishes VSOE of fair value for its software support maintenance contracts by reference to substantive stated renewal rates within those arrangements. The bell-shaped curve approach continues to be used for professional services.
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements are unaudited and have been prepared by the Company in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Pursuant to such rules and regulations, certain financial information and footnote disclosures normally included in a complete set of financial statements have been condensed or omitted. However, in the opinion of management, the financial statements include all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring accruals, necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position and results of operations and cash flows of the interim periods presented. Operating results for these interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the entire year, due to seasonal, operating and other factors. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K as of and for the year ended December 31, 2013.
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from estimates on items such as allowance for doubtful accounts and sales returns, inventory provisions, asset impairment charges, deferred tax asset valuation allowances, accruals for uncertain tax positions and warranty accruals. These estimates and assumptions are based on management’s best judgment. Management evaluates estimates and assumptions on an ongoing basis using its technical knowledge, historical experience and other factors, including consideration of the impact of the current economic environment. Management believes its assumptions are reasonable and adjusts such estimates and assumptions when facts and circumstances change. Illiquid credit markets, volatile equity, foreign currency and energy markets, and declines in business and consumer spending have combined to increase the uncertainty inherent in such estimates and assumptions. As future events and their effects cannot be determined with precision, actual results could differ significantly from these estimates. Any required changes in those estimates will be reflected in the financial statements in future periods.
(2)
Stock-Based Compensation
The Company did not grant stock options during the three months ended March 31, 2014 and granted 58,500 stock options during the comparable prior-year period. The stock options granted during the three months ended March 31, 2013 included 50,000 non-qualified options granted outside of any shareholder-approved plan to a newly hired senior management level employee as an inducement to accept employment with the Company. The non-qualified options granted outside a shareholder-approved plan

were structured to mirror the terms of the options granted under the Company's Second Amended and Restated 2007 Stock Incentive Plan (the "2007 Plan"), a shareholder-approved plan, and are subject to a stock option agreement between the Company and the employee. The Company did not grant any restricted stock or restricted stock units during the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively.

All marketable securities as of March 31, 2014 and December 31, 2013 have original maturities ranging from three to 12 months and are classified as available-for-sale. Available-for-sale securities are recorded at fair value and any unrealized holding gains and losses, net of the related tax effect, are excluded from earnings and are reported as a separate component of accumulated other comprehensive income until realized. See Note 7, “Fair Value Measurements,” for a discussion of inputs used to measure the fair value of the Company’s available-for-sale securities.

(7)
Fair Value Measurements
A hierarchy for inputs used in measuring fair value is in place that distinguishes market data between observable independent market inputs and unobservable market assumptions by the reporting entity.
The hierarchy is intended to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs by requiring that the most observable inputs be used when available. Three levels within the hierarchy may be used to measure fair value:
Level 1: Inputs are unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities.
Level 2: Inputs include data points that are observable such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, and inputs (other than quoted prices) such as interest rates and yield curves that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly.
Level 3: Inputs are generated from model-based techniques that use significant assumptions not observable in the market. These unobservable assumptions reflect an entity’s own estimates of assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability.

Marketable securities are classified as Level 1 in the above table and are carried at fair value based on quoted market prices. The Company uses quoted market prices as all of the certificates of deposit and treasury bills have maturity dates within one year from the Company’s date of purchase and trade in active markets.
Foreign currency forward exchange contracts are classified as Level 2 in the above table and are carried at fair value based on significant other observable market inputs, in this case, quoted foreign currency exchange rates. Such valuation represents the amount the Company would receive or pay to terminate the forward exchange contracts at the reporting date. The Company enters into forward foreign exchange contracts to hedge intercompany receivables primarily denominated in Euros arising from sales to its subsidiary in Germany. Gains or losses on forward foreign exchange contracts are calculated at each period end and are recognized in net income (loss) in the period in which they arose. The fair value of forward foreign exchange contracts are recorded in other current assets or other current liabilities depending on whether the net amount is a gain or loss. This treatment is based on the master netting arrangement under the Company's foreign exchange agreement which allows netting of asset and liability positions of outstanding foreign exchange contracts if settlement were required.
(8)
Common Stock Repurchases and Dividends
Since October 2010, the Company’s Board of Directors has approved common stock repurchases of up to 3,500,000 shares. Shares may be purchased at prevailing market prices in the open market or in private transactions, subject to market conditions, share price, trading volume and other factors. The repurchase program has been funded to date using cash on hand. The Company did not repurchase any shares of its common stock during the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively. As of March 31, 2014, the Company had 778,365 shares available for repurchase under the authorizations.
The Company did not declare or pay any dividends during the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively.

Computation of Net Loss Per Share of Common Stock
Basic net loss per common share is determined by dividing net loss by the basic weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding. Diluted net loss per common share includes the potentially dilutive effect of common shares issued in connection with outstanding stock options using the treasury stock method and the dilutive impact of restricted stock units. Stock options and restricted stock units to acquire weighted average common shares of 1,773,000 and 1,979,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively, have been excluded from the computation of diluted weighted average common shares as their effect is anti-dilutive.
The Company calculates net income (loss) per share pursuant to the two-class method, which requires all outstanding unvested share-based payment awards that contain nonforfeitable rights to dividends or dividend equivalents (whether paid or unpaid) to be considered participating securities and included in the computation of basic and diluted earnings per share using the two-class method. The Company included in its computation of weighted average shares outstanding approximately 83,000 and 118,000 weighted average outstanding shares of unvested restricted stock deemed to be participating securities for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively. The following table identifies the components of net income (loss) per basic and diluted share (in thousands, except for per share data):

Contingencies
The Company is exposed to a number of asserted and unasserted claims encountered in the normal course of business. Legal costs related to loss contingencies are expensed as incurred. In the opinion of management, the resolution of these matters will not have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial position or results of operations.
(11)
Investment in Software Company
At March 31, 2014 and December 31, 2013, Qumu held an investment totaling $3.1 million in convertible preferred stock of Briefcam, Ltd. (“Briefcam”), a privately-held Israeli company that develops video synopsis technology to augment security and surveillance systems to facilitate review of surveillance video. Qumu also holds warrants to purchase additional Briefcam preferred stock in the same series and at the same price as its invested preferred shares. Qumu’s investment in Briefcam represents a minority ownership interest of less than 20%. The investment is included in other non-current assets in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.
Because Qumu's ownership interest is less than 20% and it has no other rights or privileges that enable it to exercise significant influence over the operating and financial policies of BriefCam, Qumu accounts for this equity investment using the cost method. Qumu monitors BriefCam's results of operations, business plan and capital raising activities, and is not aware of any events or circumstances that would indicate an other than temporary decline in the carrying value of its investment.
(12)
Segments
The Company has two reportable segments: enterprise video content management software and disc publishing. The Company's enterprise video content management software segment allows organizations to capture, organize and distribute content across the extended enterprise to a wide variety of end points, including mobile devices. Qumu's video platform supports both live and on-demand streaming, and also incorporates secure download capabilities. The Company's disc publishing segment provides customers with solutions that archive, distribute and protect content on CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray Discs. The Company markets its products to customers in North America, Europe and Asia.
Management evaluates segment performance based on revenue and operating income (loss). The measurement of operating income (loss) excludes interest income and expense, other non-operating items and income taxes. The operating income (loss) for the Company’s enterprise video content management software and disc publishing segments include all the direct costs of each business and an allocation of corporate expenses incurred to support each reportable segment.

Recently Issued Accounting Standards
In July 2013, the FASB issued ASU No. 2013-11, “Presentation of an Unrecognized Tax Benefit When a Net Operating Loss Carryforward, a Similar Tax Loss, or a Tax Credit Carryforward Exists”. ASU 2013-11 requires an entity to net its liability for unrecognized tax benefits against the deferred tax assets for all same jurisdiction net operating losses or similar tax loss carryforwards, or tax credit carryforwards. A gross presentation will be required only if such carryforwards are not available as of the reporting date to settle any additional income taxes resulting from disallowance of the uncertain tax position or the entity does not intend to use these carryforwards for this purpose. The new guidance is effective on a prospective basis for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2013 and interim periods within those years. The Company adopted ASU No. 2013-11 on January 1, 2014 and its adoption did not have a material impact on the Company’s financial position or results of operations.

Noncontrolling Interest
Effective July 3, 2013, the Company received approval from the Chinese government to increase its majority interest in Rimage Information Technology (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. ("RIT") from 51% to 100% by acquiring the remaining common stock from Taiwan Electronic Data Processing for $50,000. The acquisition of the additional shares in RIT was accounted for as an equity transaction in accordance with the accounting standards on noncontrolling interests outlined in ASC 810. As a result of the shares acquired, RIT is now a 100% owned subsidiary of Qumu. The Company continues to consolidate the financial statements of RIT with its consolidated financial statements; however, commencing on July 3, 2013, there is no noncontrolling interest.

Overview
The Company conducts its operations through two businesses consisting of 1) its enterprise video content management software business and 2) its disc publishing business. Qumu’s growing enterprise video content management software business provides the tools businesses need to create, manage, secure, distribute and measure the success of their videos. Qumu's video platform supports both live and on-demand streaming, and also incorporates secure download capabilities. Qumu helps organizations around the world realize the greatest possible value from video and other rich content they create and publish. Qumu's disc publishing business provides customers with industry-leading systems that label, archive, distribute and protect content on CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray Discs. The Company also distributes related consumables for use with its disc publishing systems, consisting of media kits, ribbons, ink cartridges and blank CD-R, DVD-R and Blu-ray media. The Company markets its products to customers in North America, Europe and Asia.
The Company's enterprise video content management software products are deployed primarily through the sale of software licenses, software on a server appliance, software-enabled devices and a cloud-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform. Software maintenance contracts, professional services and managed services are also sold with these solutions. The Company's disc publishing business earns revenues through the sale of equipment, consumables and parts as well as maintenance contracts, repair and installation services. Product revenues on the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations include the Company's sale of equipment, appliances, software-enabled devices, consumables, parts and software licenses. Service revenues on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations include revenues from maintenance contracts, repair, installation, software and maintenance subscription arrangements, managed services and professional services. Qumu has no long-term debt and does not require significant capital investment as it outsources to third-party vendors the required fabrication of most of its hardware-related products.
As previously announced, on April 24, 2014, the Company entered into an asset purchase agreement with Equus Holdings, Inc. (“Equus Holdings”) and Redwood Acquisition, Inc. (“Buyer”) pursuant to which the Company has agreed to sell to Buyer all of the assets primarily used or primarily held for use in connection with its disc publishing business. Buyer is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Equus Holdings. The transactions contemplated by the asset purchase agreement are referred to in this “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” section as the “Asset Sale Transaction.”

Total revenues decreased 4% for the three months ended March 31, 2014 to $18.8 million from $19.5 million in the comparable prior-year period. The decrease in total revenues in the first quarter reflects a $0.4 million decrease in enterprise video content management software business revenues and $0.3 million reduction in disc publishing business revenues. Consolidated product revenues decreased $1.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014, while consolidated service revenues increased $0.3 million compared to the same prior-year period. International sales, inclusive of the impact of currency changes, decreased 1% during the three months ended March 31, 2014 and comprised 36% of total revenues compared to 35% of total revenues for the same period in 2013. In the aggregate, currency fluctuations decreased consolidated revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2014 by less than $0.1 million, or less than 1% relative to the same periods in 2013.
Enterprise Video Content Management Software. The $0.4 million decrease in total enterprise video content management software revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2014 consisted of a $0.9 million decline in sales of software licenses and appliances, partially offset by a $0.4 million increase in service revenues. The decrease in software license and appliance revenues was primarily due to the timing of revenue recognition of contracted commitments. Revenues vary quarter to quarter based on the type of contract the Company enters into with each customer. Contracts for perpetual software licenses generally result in revenue recognized closer to the contract commitment date while contracts for term-based software licenses result in most of the revenue being recognized over the period of the contract. The majority of contracted commitments from the fourth quarter 2013 and the first

15

Table of Contents


quarter 2014 were term-based licenses for which a high proportion of the associated revenue will be recognized over future quarters. This significant shift in the mix of software contracts reduced the amount of perpetual software license revenue recognized in the first quarter. Contracted commitments for the enterprise video content management software business for the first quarter in 2014 totaled $14.2 million and contracted commitment backlog aggregated $27.0 million as of March 31, 2014. The Company defines contracted commitments as the dollar value of signed customer purchase commitments.
Disc Publishing. The current-year reduction in disc publishing revenues primarily reflects declines of $0.1 million in equipment revenues and also service revenues. The decrease in disc publishing equipment revenues was primarily impacted by a reduced volume of Producer equipment sales in Europe, partially offset by growth in equipment sales in the U.S. relative to the prior year’s comparable period. The overall decline in disc publishing equipment revenues reflects a continuation of an expected transition of customers' purchases over time from physical distribution of content on discs to online forms of distribution.
Future consolidated revenues will be dependent upon many factors, including the rate of growth of the Company's enterprise video content management software business, whether software license arrangements with customers are structured as term or perpetual licenses, which impacts the timing of revenue recognition, the rate of technology substitution and associated decline in revenue for disc publishing products, the success of the Company's deployment of a complete disc publishing solution for medical imaging in hospitals in China and the rate of adoption of other new applications for the Company's products in its targeted markets. Other factors that will influence future consolidated revenues include the timing of new product introductions, the performance of the Company's channel partners, the timing of customer orders and related product deliveries, the Company's ability to maintain continuous supply of its products and components, the impact of changes in economic conditions and the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations.
Gross Profit. Gross profit as a percentage of total revenues was 45.6% for the three months ended March 31, 2014 compared to 47.4% for the same period in 2013. The decrease in consolidated gross profit as a percentage of total revenues was due to a decline in gross margin generated by the enterprise video content management software business, partially offset by improved margins generated by the disc publishing business. Gross profit as a percentage of revenues for the Company's enterprise video content management software business was 35.4% for the three months ended March 31, 2014, compared to 60.1% for the same period in 2013. The decline in gross margin for the software business was due to less revenue from perpetual software licenses compared to the prior year, and increased customer support and professional services costs required to support growth in the customer base, deployment of a growing base of software contracts and expansion of service offerings. Gross profit as a percentage of revenues for the Company's disc publishing business was 48.2% for the three months ended March 31, 2014, compared to 43.7% for the same period in 2013. The improvement in gross margin was driven by reduced supplier costs for ribbons and certain equipment, sales of higher margin consumables and reduced service costs, partially offset by a reduced volume of sales of higher margin Producer equipment.

The enterprise video content management software margins for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013 are inclusive of the impact of approximately $0.2 million in amortization expense associated with intangible assets acquired as a result of the acquisition of Qumu, Inc. Cost of revenues in 2014 are expected to include approximately $0.6 million of amortization expense for purchased intangibles.
Future gross profit margins will be impacted by the rate of growth of the Company's enterprise video content management software business, which has historically generated higher gross margins than the Company's disc publishing business. Future gross margins will also continue to be affected by many other factors, including product mix, the timing of new product introductions, the timing of customer orders and related product deliveries, changes in material costs and supply sources, manufacturing volume, the growth rate of service-related revenues relative to associated service support costs and foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations.
Operating Expenses. Total operating expenses were $12.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014 compared to $13.2 million in the comparable prior-year period. The $0.5 million decline in operating expenses compared to the prior-year period reflects the impact of cost reductions implemented in the disc publishing business in 2013 which reduced expenses by $1.2 million, primarily in research and development and sales and marketing. This decline was partially offset by a $0.7 million increase in enterprise video content management software operating expenses driven primarily by an increase in sales and marketing expenses.
Research and development expenses totaled $2.7 million and $3.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively, representing 14.4% and 17.2% of revenues for the respective periods. Expense reductions in the current-year period resulted primarily from headcount reductions implemented during 2013 and reduced project spending in the disc publishing business. Lower employee costs in the enterprise video content management software business also contributed to the reduction in expenses in the current-year period due to the timing of headcount additions.
Selling, general and administrative expenses totaled $9.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014, or 52.5% of revenues compared to expenses in the same prior-year period of $9.7 million, or 49.8% of revenues. The $0.2 million increase in expenses

16

Table of Contents


in the current-year period primarily reflects increased sales and marketing headcount and promotional programs to support growth in the enterprise video content management software business, partially offset by reduced sales and marketing expenses in the disc publishing business achieved as a result of the prior-year headcount reductions and continued cost optimization. Also impacting the increase in selling, general and administrative expense was the inclusion in the first quarter 2014 of $0.2 million of transaction related expenses associated with the Asset Sale Transaction.
Amortization of Purchased Intangibles. Operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013 include approximately $0.2 million in each period for the amortization of intangible assets acquired as part of the Company's acquisition of Qumu, Inc. in October 2011. Operating expenses in 2014 are expected to include approximately $0.6 million of amortization expense associated with purchased intangibles, exclusive of the portion classified in cost of revenues.
Other Income, Net. For the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, the Company recognized interest income on cash and marketable securities of $13,000 and $11,000, respectively, and recognized net losses on foreign currency transactions of $35,000 and $107,000 for the respective periods. Additionally, other income for the current year's first quarter included a one-time gain on sale of property totaling $222,000.
Income Taxes. The provision for income taxes represents federal, state, and foreign income taxes or income tax benefit on income or loss. The Company recorded an income tax benefit of $49,000 and $54,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively.
The tax benefit amounts recorded in the current and prior-year periods reflect a tax benefit recorded in each period for losses incurred by the Company's subsidiary in Europe, partially offset by U.S. state income taxes.
Net Loss / Net Loss Per Share. Resulting net loss attributable to Qumu for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013 was $3.9 million and $4.0 million, respectively. Related net loss per basic and diluted share amounts were $0.45 and $0.46 for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively.

Operating loss for the enterprise video content management software segment for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013 includes amortization expense of $0.3 million in each period for amortization of intangible assets established as part of the acquisition of Qumu, Inc.
Enterprise Video Content Management Software. Operating loss increased $2.0 million during the first quarter of 2014 compared to the first quarter of 2013. The increase in operating loss in the current year's first quarter was driven by a $1.2 million decline in gross margin and a $0.7 million increase in operating expenses. The decline in gross margin for the software business was due to less revenue from perpetual software licenses compared to the prior year, impacted by a higher mix of term-based arrangements relative to perpetual software license arrangements. Further contributing to the decline in gross margin was an increase in customer support and professional services costs required to support growth in the customer base, deployment of a growing base of software contracts and expansion of service offerings. These factors drove a decline in gross profit as a percentage of revenues to 35.4% for the three months ended March 31, 2014 compared to 60.1% for the three months ended March 31, 2013. The $0.7 million increase in operating expenses was primarily due to an increase in sales and marketing expenses and allocated corporate expenses. The increase in sales and marketing expenses resulted from increased headcount and promotional programs, partially offset by reduced sales commissions from lower sales. The increase in allocated corporate costs was driven primarily by increased

Table of Contents


consumption of existing corporate resources to support the growth initiatives of the enterprise video content management software business.
Disc Publishing. Operating income increased $1.8 million during the first quarter of 2014 compared to the first quarter of 2013. Operating income in the current-year's first quarter increased primarily due to a $0.5 million improvement in gross margin and a $1.2 million reduction in operating expenses. The improvement in gross margin was primarily driven by reduced supplier costs for ribbons and certain equipment, sales of higher margin consumables and reduced service costs, partially offset by a reduced volume of sales of higher margin Producer equipment. The reduction in operating expenses occurred as a result of headcount reductions during 2013 in research and development and sales and marketing and reduced project spending in research and development. Also contributing to the decline in operating expenses was a reduction in allocated corporate costs as a result of the redirection of a portion of existing corporate resources to support the increasing business requirements of the enterprise video content management software business.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
The Company expects it will be able to maintain current operations and anticipated capital expenditure requirements for the foreseeable future through its cash reserves. At March 31, 2014, the Company had working capital of $46.0 million, down $2.8 million from working capital reported at December 31, 2013. The primary contributors to the decrease in working capital were the generation of a net loss adjusted for non-cash items during the three months ended March 31, 2014 of $3.1 million and purchases of property and equipment of $0.3 million, partially offset by proceeds from the sale of property and equipment of $0.3 million and proceeds from the exercise of employee and director stock options of $0.1 million. Exclusive of a small amount of capital lease obligations and other purchase obligations, Qumu has no long-term debt and does not require significant capital investment for its ongoing operations.
The Company's primary source of cash from operating activities has been cash collections from sales of products and services to customers. The Company expects cash inflows from operating activities to be affected by increases or decreases in sales and timing of collections. The Company's primary use of cash for operating activities has been for personnel costs and purchases of inventory. The Company expects cash flows from operating activities to be affected by fluctuations in revenues, personnel costs and inventory requirements as the Company continues to increase its investment in resources to support the growth of the enterprise video content management software business and optimizes costs and reduces inventory purchases in line with revenues in the disc publishing business.
Net cash used in operating activities totaled $4.5 million and $1.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively. The $3.5 million increase in cash used in operating activities in 2014 relative to 2013 resulted from a $1.2 million decrease in the favorable impact of non-cash and non-operating items and $2.4 million in unfavorable changes in operating assets and liabilities partially offset by a $0.1 million increase in net income. Primarily contributing to the change in operating assets and liabilities compared to the prior year were unfavorable changes of $2.2 million in receivables, $2.2 million in accrued compensation and $1.0 million in prepaid expenses and other assets, partially offset by favorable changes of $2.3 million in deferred revenue and $0.8 million in trade accounts payable.
The unfavorable change in accounts receivable compared to the prior year was due to timing of sales and associated collections from customers. The unfavorable change in accrued compensation was primarily due to cash payments for liabilities associated with the establishment in 2013 of a long-term incentive plan and the achievement of above-target performance under the Company's short-term incentive plan for 2013, with associated payments under both plans occurring in the quarter ended March 31, 2014. The unfavorable change in prepaid expenses and other assets was due to an increase in and related deferral of software royalties, software licenses and hardware costs directly associated with revenues that have not yet been recognized as of March 31, 2014. The favorable change in deferred revenue in the first quarter of 2014 compared to the same period in 2013 was primarily due to an increase in renewals of maintenance contracts for the retail segment of the Company's disc publishing business and by an increase in software related revenue deferrals for the Company's enterprise video content management software business, impacted by a higher mix of term-based software license arrangements relative to perpetual license arrangements.
Net cash provided by (used in) investing activities totaled $(5.0) million and $9.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively. The net cash of $(5.0) million used in 2014 was driven primarily by $5.0 million in purchases of marketable securities, net of related maturities, and $0.3 million in purchases of property and equipment, partially offset by $0.3 million of proceeds from the sale of a parcel of land from the Company’s headquarters property. The $9.9 million cash provided in 2013 was driven primarily by $10.5 million of maturities of marketable securities, net of related purchases, partially offset by $0.2 million in purchases of property and equipment and a $0.4 million investment in BriefCam. Capital expenditures in 2014 and 2013 consisted primarily of office equipment to support information technology infrastructure.
Financing activities provided (used) net cash of $0.1 million and $0.0 million in 2014 and 2013, respectively. The net cash provided in 2014 was due to proceeds from stock option exercises.

Critical Accounting Policies
Management utilizes its technical knowledge, cumulative business experience, judgment and other factors in the selection and application of the Company’s accounting policies. The accounting policies considered by management to be the most critical to the presentation of the condensed consolidated financial statements because they require the most difficult, subjective and complex judgments include revenue recognition, allowance for doubtful accounts, inventory provisions, deferred tax asset valuation allowances, accruals for uncertain tax positions, stock-based compensation, impairment of long-lived assets and investment in nonconsolidated company. These accounting policies are discussed in Item 7. “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013. Management made no significant changes to the Company’s critical accounting policies during the three months ended March 31, 2014.
