IGEN Networks Files Q2 2015 Report With Record Quarterly Revenues

ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA--(Marketwired - Aug. 20, 2015) - IGEN Networks Corp. (the "Company" or "IGEN") (OTCQB:IGEN)(CSE:IGN) has filed its Q2 2015 report which includes the largest quarterly revenue in the Company's history. IGEN's quarterly revenues of $289,065 were up 63% from the previous quarter and up 47% from the similar period in 2014. For the six-month period, revenues of $467,614 were a 115% increase over the similar period in 2014.

Additionally, gross profits in the quarter grew to $102,975; a 69% increase over the previous quarter, though only marginally higher than the similar period in 2014. The numbers reflect increased volumes of lower-margin product in Q2 2015. Over the six-month period, the Company's gross profit was $163,975, up 38% over the same period in 2014.

Gross margins rose slightly over the previous quarter (from 34% to 36%) but remain down over the previous year. Though the Company is shipping product at lower margins than last year, it continues to work at improving inventory and product costs in an attempt to optimize margins. The Company reported six-month period losses of $336,819, though a Q2 net loss of $158,220 was an 11% improvement over the previous quarter.

Neil G. Chan, President and CEO of IGEN, stated, "We are starting to see the growth potential of our most recently announced partnerships with Verizon Wireless, Star Shield Solutions, and Sky Force Technology, and are delighted with the traction we are seeing this quarter. Going forward, we will focus on improving operational efficiencies and identify additional sources of hardware suppliers to improve our margins and profitability."
