For the year ended December 31, 2011, the Company had revenues of $579,386 compared to zero revenues for the year ended 2010. The increase in revenues is a result of the acquisitions of Bitzio Corp., Thinking Drone, Inc. and the launch of its App Code product.

During 2011, the Company raised $695,500 from financing activities, which yielded net cash available to operations of $590,120 after a principal repayment of the notes payable of $105,380. This compares to $50,392 of net cash provided by financing activities for the year ending December 31, 2010. As of December 31, 2011 the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $181,725, compared to $18,068 as of December 31, 2010.

Adjusted EBITDA to net income from continuing operations for the year ending December 31, 2011 shows a net loss of $(240,223) compared to a net loss of $(38,212) for the year ended December 31, 2010.

Additionally, the Company starts 2012 with approximately 1,000 developer clients, 150 mobile apps in market which have been downloaded 40,000,000 times, and a roadmap for an additional 4,000 apps to be built going forward - giving Bitzio a great consumer base of 'reach' to start the new year.

William Schonbrun, President and CEO of Bitzio, commented, "The fourth quarter of 2011 was the first real 'executional' quarter for the business. In early 2011 we strategically decided to take a 'team first' approach to the business and spent Q2 and Q3 focused on getting the right team and market strategy in place. By Q4, we had our team and the key, initial acquisitions in place. As you can see from the results, we executed on our plan and delivered fundamental value to our clients and the market."

"We delivered products in all of our focus areas - developer education, developer tools and mobile apps - and generated revenue in all areas during Q4. During the first half of 2012, we will continue to build a solid operational base as we focus on product design, development and delivery of these products to market. We continue to seek out and secure additional key acquisitions like Digispace, which closed in early January 2012, to further solidify our core operations and open new avenues, markets and channels. Overall, we're thrilled with our performance in 2011 and our start to 2012, and believe our future will be very bright."
