The results, which are only for the Company's Owned Operations, show increases in both the company's asset base of $477,343 (a 41% increase from same period 2013) and in revenues by $509,056.
The Company's first quarter asset base for the three month period ending March 31, 2013, increased by $477,343 to $1,631,640. The asset growth represents a 41% increase over the audited year-end results.
The Company's revenue per share increased to $0.0017. This is a result of the Company's acquisitions and new operations. The Company's net loss per share was $0.02 compared to the adjusted net loss per share of $0.01 for the same quarter last year. The increase is the direct result of the company's expansive growth during the year, which is measured by the increase per share of $0.0124 for operating expenses. The Company considers this to be within the range for its plan to achieve accelerated revenue growth and faster global market penetration.
The Company record 1st quarter revenues of $509,056 were accompanied by an increase in operating expenses by $4,616,317 from the adjusted results of $599,864 in Q1 2013. "Expenses were an investment in our future with the vast majority spent on business development providing the foundation for our aggressive growth objectives," E-Waste Systems Inc. CEO Martin Nielson stated. "Increases in both the company's asset base as well as revenues are attributable to the company's implementation of its corporate objectives of asset acquisition, brand promotion and partnerships with companies that have a global reach."
"Our quarterly results are a reflection of progress we made in establishing our strong platform for growth. From a year ago, we have reached an unprecedented milestone in our industry. Last year we set up a plan to create a global brand, develop unique technologies for the industry and accelerate our revenue and that plan is well underway. Based upon our progress to date, we are confident that the rest of the year will reap rewards based upon the strength of our foundation and the talent we have attracted to our team," Mr. Nielson stated.
