CommerceTel Corporation Reports 231% Increase in Third Quarter Revenues

Company Driving Growth Through Core Technology and Products Fueling Over 1,500 Customer Deployments

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 14, 2011) - CommerceTel Corporation (OTCBB: MFON), an award-winning provider of proprietary mobile marketing technologies and solutions, today announced its operating results for the third quarter and FY2011 year-to-date.

For the third fiscal quarter ended September 30th, 2011, the Company reported revenue of $842,885, which represented an increase of approximately 231% when compared with revenue of $254,273 in the prior-year fiscal quarter ended September 30th, 2010 and an increase of approximately 52% when compared with revenue of $553,108 during the previous quarter of FY2011 ended June 30th, 2011.

For the nine months ended September 30th, 2011, the Company's revenue increased approximately 125% to $1,536,630, compared to $683,095 during the same period of the previous fiscal year.

"During our third quarter we completed the acquisition of the assets of DigiMark, LLC which included Boomtext and an outstanding client roster. With Boomtext, and our previous strategic acquisitions of the assets of Adsparq, including Txtstation, and Mobivity, we are seeing the immediate organic growth expected by implementing our award-winning, patented technology into the operations and client base of all three acquired assets," stated Dennis Becker, Chief Executive Officer of CommerceTel.

The Company is estimating revenues of $1M for the current fourth quarter ending December 31st, 2011. Revenues of $1M for the current quarter would result in a quarterly revenue growth rate of 18.6% over the most recent third quarter.

"When you examine the historical revenue performance of these strategic acquisitions, prior to joining CommerceTel, and compare that performance to our recent quarter, the organic growth produced by the combination of these companies with our technology is quite impressive," continued Becker. "Aside from the results we predicted through enabling these strategic acquisitions with our technology, I credit our team for their success in integrating essentially four companies in just five months."

Gross profits increased more than 179% to $966,025 (63% of revenue) in the nine months ended September 30th, 2011, compared to $345,738 (51% of revenue) in the nine months ended September 30th, 2010.

The Company also improved its quarterly Adjusted EBITDA performance year-to-date by more than 27% when comparing the third quarter's Adjusted EBITDA loss of $312,102 to the first quarter Adjusted EBITDA loss of $429,062.
