Revenue

Revenue decreased 3% to $2,081,000 from $2,150,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively. This decrease is primarily attributable to (i) decreased revenue of approximately $302,000 related to a decrease in the re-licensing of third party data, and (ii) a decrease of approximately $29,000 of consulting services revenue. However, these decreases were largely offset by an approximate increase of $245,000 in revenue generated from the licensing of software, StreetScape imagery, and real property data.

Gross Margin

Gross margin increased 7% to $1,354,000 from $1,264,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively. This increase is mainly attributable to a decrease in third party data and software licensing expense of approximately $136,000, which was partially offset by the decrease in revenue, for the reasons noted above, of approximately $69,000, for the three months ended March 31, 2017 as compared to the same period of the prior year.

Comprehensive Loss

Comprehensive loss decreased to $70,000 from $112,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively. The decrease is mainly attributable to the $89,000 increase in gross margin for the reasons noted above, but was offset to some extent by increases in human resource costs of approximately $44,000 to support development and promotion of strategic initiatives.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA increased to $70,000 from $52,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively. While there was a modest decrease in revenue for the first quarter of 2017 compared to the same period of the prior year, this was more than offset by a reduction in cash expenses, primarily related to the reduction in third party data licensing expense, in the first quarter of 2017.
