F3 Technologies Q3 Revenue Growth Shows Continued Strength

ALPHARETTA, GA--(Marketwire - November 15, 2010) - F3 Technologies, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: FTCH) today announced financial results from the third quarter of 2010. The company posted quarterly revenue of $17,799, up 6 percent from the prior quarter and 42.5 percent from third quarter 2009.

The gains come from continued growth in F3's Interaction Community Systems™ HOA management and networking software, and from a new contract for web development services.

Commenting on the results, Chief Executive Officer Frank Connor said: "This growth reflects a growing customer base that generates recurring revenue, and also a new development client with exciting growth prospects. We expanded our software sales to yet another quarterly high -- fully 50 percent higher than in the year-earlier quarter -- as ICS continued to prove its value to our HOA and property-management customers.

"We're also enjoying growing demand for both of our newer software platforms," Connor continued. "FargoTube's pool of entertainment content partners has grown substantially, and the key first client for Interactive Defense System is helping to generate buzz and news coverage that bode well for future growth.

"Customer growth has helped to generate user feedback that makes all three platforms more powerful and easier to use," Connor added.

The third-quarter results include revenue from an ongoing contract for web development services that F3 and Tivus, Inc., of Omaha, Nebraska, signed in September. Tivus is developing an entertainment system for hotels nationwide.

Other 3Q Highlights:

  • FargoTube™, an online platform for the profitable distribution of music and videos, began growing at a faster pace, and as of November 12 claimed 100 content partners -- also known as "tube owners" -- and 300 end users who generate revenue for the site.

  • During the 3rd quarter, Interaction Community Systems added 10 new customers, including 1 property-management company and 9 HOAs.
  • Advertising, an important source of revenue on all three platforms, continued to enjoy strong demand.
