ProntoForms Corporation Announces Q2 2013 Results


- Q2'13 recurring subscription revenue growth of 80% over Q2'12

- Liquidity strengthened through sale of non-core patents for net proceeds of $575,000

- Positive net income arising from one-time other income items

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Aug. 6, 2013) - ProntoForms Corporation (TSX VENTURE:PFM) ("ProntoForms" or "the Company"), (formerly, TrueContext Mobile Solutions Corporation) a mobile data solutions company, today announced results for its three and six months ended June 30, 2013. All amounts are stated in Canadian dollars unless otherwise noted.

Operating Results for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2013

The Company had Q2 2013 net income of $535,485 compared to a Q1 2013 net loss of $356,453 and a comparable Q2 2012 net loss of $564,897.

  • The shift to profitability arose primarily from other income of approximately $875,000 realized through the sale of certain patents and a reduction in deferred revenue due to the reversal of the underlying obligation. The other income items are one-time events and will not impact future periods. Excluding the one-time other income items, the Company would have presented a net loss of $339,585 in the three month period ended June 30, 2013, reflecting a pro forma quarter over quarter improvement of $16,868 from the Q12013 net loss of $356,453 and a year over year improvement of $225,312 from the comparable Q22012 net loss of $564,897.

"I am pleased to be reporting the financial results under our new name of ProntoForms Corporation. While there was a shift to positive earnings, I should explain that it was mainly driven by the one-time sale of company owned noncore patents. Despite the earnings anomaly, we are moving towards sustainable profitability by balancing spending with strong subscriber and revenue growth. This has become an established and steady trend for the last several quarters, particularly for sales through our operator partners, while at the same time we have reduced our operating loss. The sale of patents provides us with the liquidity to continue our plan and enhance our opportunities for business growth," said Alvaro Pombo, Chief Executive Officer, ProntoForms.

Mr. Pombo added: "ProntoForms® continues to be a leading product in the marketplace and our relationships with top carriers and device vendors demonstrate the strategic value of the application within the carrier ecosystem. The ProntoForms product is deployed with more than 2,500 companies and the knowledge gained from helping these leading companies with their field business processes provides a real advantage in taking our business to the next level."
