ID Watchdog Announces Second Quarter 2012 Results

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - Aug 31, 2012) - ID Watchdog, Inc. (TSX VENTURE: IDW) (PINKSHEETS: IDWAF) ("ID Watchdog" or the "Company"), provider of consumer-facing identity theft protection and resolution services, today announced its results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012. All amounts are in U.S. dollars.

For the second quarter ended June 30, 2012, revenues totaled $470,320 and the Company recognized an operating loss of $(512,045). Net loss for the second quarter was $(499,884), or $(0.00) per ordinary share. Revenue decreased $52,731, or 10.1%, from $523,051 for the second quarter of 2011 to $470,320 for the second quarter of 2012. Revenue increased on a sequential basis by $26,263, or 5.9%, from $444,057 reported for the three months ended March 31, 2012. This increase was primarily the result of an increase in the number of employees subscribing to our services through their employer's benefit programs.

"We made great progress during the second quarter in building a foundation to significantly expand our base of customers who subscribe to our services through their employer's benefit program," said Michael Greene, CEO of ID Watchdog. 

Also, as of July 2012, we have now integrated our identity theft protection services with all five of our existing anti-virus and desktop software partners. "While the revenue generated from this channel is slower to grow than expected, we continue to work diligently with our partners to expand our customer base from this channel," said Michael Greene CEO of ID Watchdog.

The Company will be holding a conference call on September 5, 2012 at 2:15 p.m. MST to discuss its second quarter 2012 financial results and future growth plans. If you would like to participate in this event please register by opening the following hyperlink or copying it to your internet browser:
