MacroSolve Announces $923,000 Increase in Net Income for First Quarter 2013 Over First Quarter 2012

Second Consecutive Quarter of Net Income Driven by Mobile App Technologies & Licensing

TULSA, OK--(Marketwired - Apr 30, 2013) - MacroSolve, Inc. (OTCQB: MCVE) ("MacroSolve" or the "Company"), a leading provider of mobile technologies intellectual property, today announced financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2013.

Highlights for the first quarter of 2013 include:

  • Net income increased $923,000 to $218,000 in 1Q13 from $(705,000) net loss in 1Q12;
  • Net income from continuing operations increased $225,000 to $218,000 in 1Q13 from $(7,000) in 1Q12; and
  • Operating expenses decreased 49% to $155,000 in 1Q13 from $303,000 in 1Q12.

Net income for 1Q13 was $218,000 or $0.001 per share, as compared to the 1Q12 net loss of $(705,000), or $(0.004) per share, an increase of $923,000. The increase was primarily due to the sale of Illume Mobile and the elimination of its operating losses. The Company improved its use of cash in operations, with cash used in operating activities declining by $443,000 in 1Q13 as compared to 1Q12, resulting in a $378,000 increase in cash at March 31, 2013, which was $702,000 as compared to $325,000 on March 31, 2012.

Operating expenses decreased 49% in 1Q13 to $155,000 from $303,000 in 1Q12, as adjusted for the Illume Mobile divestiture. After the sale, the Company restructured its management and strategically reduced its operating overhead, resulting in $218,000 net income from continuing operations in 1Q13, a $225,000 increase from $(7,000) in 1Q12.

Revenues for 1Q13 were $666,000 as compared to $699,000 in 1Q12, as adjusted for the discontinuance of the Illume Mobile operations which was sold to DecisionPoint Systems, Inc. in July 2012. A significant source of revenue comes from the Company's enforcement of its '816' patent. The $(33,000), or 5% decrease, is attributable to fluctuations inherent to the nature of legal proceedings.

"The strategic restructuring of the Company following the divesture of Illume Mobile in 2012 is proving to be a sound one," stated CFO Kendall Carpenter. "We continue to execute on our plan for profitability, positive cash flow and debt reduction by monetizing our intellectual property and expanding our business and patent advisory services for small and medium-sized mobile app ventures. Our core management team has demonstrated their breadth of experience, leading to impressive first quarter results."
