MedeFile International Reports Third Quarter 2011 Results

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - Nov 15, 2011) - MedeFile International, Inc. (OTCQB: MDFI) (PINKSHEETS: MDFI), a leader in Internet-enabled Personal Health Record (iPHR) management solutions, today announced its financial and operational results for the three and nine months, ended September 30, 2011.

Financial Highlights for Three Months Ended September 30, 2011 Compared to Three Months Ended September 30, 2010:

  • Revenues increased 91% to $83,802 from $43,903.
  • Total operating expenses were $753,401, up from $338,972.
    • Excluding non-cash warrant expenses of $352,256 and $25,682 included in selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses for the third and second quarters, respectively; SG&A expenses declined 22% to $322,759 from $416,403 when comparing the three-month period ended September 30, 2011 to the three-month period ended June 30, 2011.
    • On a subsequent quarter over quarter basis, marketing expenses also declined, decreasing 77% to $70,641 in the third quarter of this year compared to $310,867 reported for the second quarter, ended June 30, 2011.
  • Due largely to the aforementioned non-cash warrant expense, net loss rose to $679,437, or $0.00 loss per basic and diluted share, from $295,069, or $0.00 loss per basic and diluted share.

Financial Highlights for Nine Months Ended September 30, 2011 Compared to Nine Months Ended September 30, 2010:

  • Revenues rose 699% to $403,644 from $50,505.
  • Net loss remained relatively flat at $1,790,866, or $0.00 per basic and diluted share, compared to $1,712,267, or $0.00 per basic and diluted share.

As of September 30, 2011, cash totaled $482,830; there was zero long term debt; and stockholders' equity totaled $410,365.

In July 2011, the Company made the decision to change its direct-to-consumer marketing strategy, ending a year-long telemarketing campaign, which had offered individuals short-term MedeFile-Lite trial memberships that could subsequently be converted into annual Lite, Basic, MedeOne or Premium memberships. In late August 2011, MedeFile commenced a 12-month campaign providing for a series of nationally televised infomercials to educate the general public and the medical community on the numerous cost-saving and health benefits of using the MedeFile iPHR management solution.

The decision to shift its marketing strategy from telemarketing to the national awareness campaign is in support of MedeFile's underpinning objective to attract and win major wholesale opportunities with large self-insured employer groups, government agencies, trade unions, affinity groups, insurance providers and major medical establishments. As a consequence, subsequent quarter-over-quarter revenue growth was negatively impacted, with third quarter 2011 revenues declining approximately $104,000 when compared to revenues of $187,000 posted for the second quarter 2011.

According to Kevin Hauser, Chairman, President and CEO of MedeFile, "When we carefully assessed the return we were getting on the marketing dollars spent on generating and converting individual trial members, it became evident that those same dollars could be much better invested to grow our member base and our revenues through our securing firm, multi-year wholesale contracts. In consideration of the fact that we are in various advanced stages of negotiation with organizations -- each representing potentially thousands of new MedeFile members, we anticipate that the pause in our revenue growth should prove to be temporary."

"As of the end of September, MedeFile had approximately 21,000 members registered on its system, up from 15,500 members as of the end of the second quarter. Based on the wholesale opportunities we are pursuing today, we anticipate that our membership could potentially grow three to five-fold in the coming year," concluded Hauser.
