Northcore Reports Third Quarter 2011 Financial Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 9, 2011) - Northcore Technologies Inc. (TSX:NTI)(OTCBB:NTLNF), a global provider of asset management and social commerce solutions, announced today its interim financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2011. All figures are reported in Canadian dollars.

Northcore reported consolidated revenues of $203,000 for the third quarter, representing an increase of 54 percent over the $132,000 reported in the same quarter of 2010. Northcore also reported year-to-date consolidated revenues of $573,000, an increase of 41 percent over the $406,000 reported for the same period of 2010. The growth in revenues was attributed primarily to the development of a group purchase platform and applications implementation for our strategic partners.

Northcore derives its revenues from application hosting activities provided to customers, the sale of software licenses, and the delivery of technology services, such as application development, software customization and social commerce solutions.

Northcore reported an Operational EBITDA loss for the third quarter of $404,000, consistent the Operational EBITDA loss of $395,000 reported for the third quarter of 2010. Northcore reported year-to-date Operational EBITDA loss of $1,252,000, an improvement of six percent from the operational EBITDA loss of $1,327,000 reported for the same period of 2010. The increase in revenues contributed to the improvement in Operational EBITDA loss during the period.

Operational EBITDA is defined as the loss before interest, taxes, depreciation, stock-based compensation, non-cash and non-recurring items. The Company considers Operational EBITDA to be a meaningful performance measure as it provides an approximation of operating cash flows.

For the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2011, Northcore reported a net loss per share of $0.004 and $0.017 respectively, basic and diluted. This compares to a loss per share of $0.006 and $0.014 respectively, basic and diluted, in the same period of 2010.

As at September 30, 2011, Northcore held cash of $1,524,000 and accounts receivable of $253,000.
