Highlights for the 2011 fiscal year include:

  • Revenues increased 164% to $1,686,000 from $638,000 in FY 2010
  • Gross profit increased to $857,000 from $319,000 in FY 2010

  • The Company's distribution network supported growth in new sales of software products and solution services

Revenues for the twelve months ended December 31, 2011 were $1,686,000 as compared to $638,000 in the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010. This 164% rise is due to increased sales of the Company's custom mobile app solution services as well as an increase in software and licensing.

Gross profit for fiscal 2011 rose 169% to $857,000 from $319,000 in fiscal 2010.

Operating expenses increased 56% in fiscal 2011 to $3,123,000 from $1,996,000 in 2010. Loss from operations was $2,226,000, up $589,000, or 35% over operating loss of $1,667,000 in fiscal 2010 due to increased non-cash consulting fees.

Net loss for fiscal 2011 was ($2,534,000) or $(0.02) per share, as compared to fiscal 2010 net loss of $(1,924,000), or $(0.03) per share, an increase of $610,000 or 32%. The increase was primarily due to non-cash consulting fees and accrued interest on 2010 and 2011 debentures. The Company improved its efficient use of cash in operations, with cash used in operating activities declining by $110,000 in fiscal 2011 as compared to fiscal 2010.

"During fiscal 2011 we made a strategic decision to invest in three areas: building a strong distribution network for our apps and development services; adding talented developers and sales people; and protecting our intellectual property rights. The quarterly trending in our financial results in 2011 clearly shows that this strategy is effective and we believe this is an early indicator of the rate of growth we anticipate for fiscal 2012. Our go-to-market Illume Mobile brand and our custom and productized mobile apps are gaining traction in the multi-billion* dollar industry in which we operate," stated MacroSolve CEO and President, Steve Signoff.

"Having brought in management with a track record in building sales from technology and telecom products and increased our employee count from 17 in fiscal 2010 to 35 at the end of 2011, we strongly believe our talented, wholly U.S.-based sales, technology and development staff is a key support to our growth. Moreover, our Company has the backing of our board of directors who continue to invest in MacroSolve, with 45% of our common stock owned by officers and directors of the Company. We are determined and motivated to build value for all of our shareholders," concluded Signoff.
