MORRISVILLE, NC--(Marketwired - Aug 6, 2013) -  Issuer Direct Corporation (OTCBB: ISDR), a market leader and innovator of disclosure management solutions and cloud-based compliance technologies, today reported its operating results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013. The Company will host an investor conference call at 4:30 p.m. EDT today, to discuss operating results and relevant topics of interest.

Second Quarter 2013 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue increased 56% to $1.7 million as compared to $1.1 million in the second quarter of 2012
  • Gross profit increased 73% to $1.2 million as compared to $698,998 in the second quarter of 2012
  • Gross margins increased to 70%, compared to 63% in the second quarter of 2012
  • Operating profit increased 931% to $613,136, compared to the second quarter of 2012
  • Non-GAAP net income increased 93% to 478,838, or $0.23 per share, as compared to the second quarter of 2012
  • The Company's cash balance increased 20% to $1.5 million at June 30, 2013 as compared to December 31, 2012

Brian R. Balbirnie, Chief Executive Officer of Issuer Direct Corporation, commented, "Our Second Quarter performance once again surpassed expectations in almost every category. The margins and revenue contributions of the stock transfer and disclosure reporting business segments led the way in our continuation to outperform estimates." Mr. Balbirnie continued, "There are strong indications that the growth and initial successes of our market stream and core technology licensing business will continue to increase. As we further commercialize our intellectual property we should continue to see exponential growth."

Wes Pollard, Chief Financial Officer, stated, "The overall 56% increase in revenue is primarily due to growth in compliance and reporting revenue, which generated 77% gross margins in the second quarter of 2013, and an improvement in transfer agent revenues, which generated 80% gross margins during that same period. Our software licensing increased 81% to $96,000, offering a 98% gross margin. As customers continue to adopt our market streams at an accelerated rate, we expect our shareholder communication segment to have increasing importance in the future."

Business Outlook 

Mr. Balbirnie further stated, "During the quarter we leveraged our critical mass, generating increased revenue, bigger profits, and larger overall margins, illustrating again the earnings power of this highly efficient, recurring revenue, cloud-based model. We took advantage of this model by delivering incremental top line revenue, augmenting our profitability by upholding high margins. We are at point, where we are really showing the scalability of our infrastructure, where additional gross margin goes almost entirely to the bottom line. We are dedicated to launching new, innovative solutions to increase average revenue per customer and ensure sustained growth. Our industry best 24-hour turnaround times for XBRL and sales infrastructure have been key differentiators that help us continue to gain market share. As the only single-source provider of cloud based disclosure management solutions, we are focused not only on growing organically, but also continuing to evaluate potential acquisitions of complementary businesses that fit our long term business strategy."

Non-GAAP Information

Certain non-GAAP financial measures are included in this press release. In the calculation of these measures, the Company generally excludes certain items such as amortization and impairment of acquired intangibles, non-cash stock-based compensation charges, and unusual, non-recurring gains and charges.

Management uses such non-GAAP measures to evaluate financial results and manage operations. The release and the attachments to this release provide a reconciliation of each of the non-GAAP measures referred to in this release to the most directly comparable GAAP measure. The non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered a substitute for the corresponding
