Quadrant4 Systems Corporation Announces Engagement of New Audit Firm and Offers Guidance, Pending Audit, of Performance of FY 2011 and 1st Qtr 2012

ROLLING MEADOWS, IL--(Marketwire - Jun 19, 2012) - Quadrant 4 Systems Corporation (OTCQB: QFORE) today announced that it has engaged a new audit firm, Sassetti LLC, to complete the audit of its financial statements for the year ending December 31, 2011. The Company does not anticipate that its financial statements will be subject to any material revision and therefore, in anticipation of publishing audited financials for the Annual Report under Form 10-K, the Company offers the following guidance:

  • We anticipate that the gross revenues will be approximately $30,000,000 for the year ending December 31, 2011 compared to gross revenue of $15,233,596 reported for the year ending December 31, 2010. This increase over the similar previous period was the result of acquisition of our subsidiary, Quadrant 4 Solutions, Inc. and its associated business.
  • We anticipate that the earnings before income taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) for the year ending December 31, 2011 will be approximately $4,500,000 compared to EBITDA of $1,449,705 reported for the year ending December 31, 2010. We anticipate that the net loss will be approximately $200,000 for the year ending December 31, 2011 compared to the net loss of $2,252,002 reported for the year ending December 31, 2010.

The Company anticipates filing its Periodic Report for the First Quarter under Form 10-Q immediately after filing its 10-K and resuming its reporting obligations thereafter. In anticipation of publishing financials (unaudited) for the Quarterly Report under Form 10-Q, the Company offers the following guidance:

  • We anticipate that the gross revenues will be approximately $6.8 million for the quarter ending March 31, 2012 with an EBITDA of approximately $700,000

The delay in completion of the audit was related to difficulties in transition planning and scheduling with the audit firm and will be discussed in the Annual and Quarterly Reports. The Company offers this guidance to keep the investment community informed during this delay in completion of its annual report.

Mr. Dhru Desai, CFO and Executive Chairman, commented, "We appreciate the support and patience of the investment community. Our company is on track with regards to its business plan execution. We are very pleased with our overall performance last year and are eager to complete the formal reporting process as soon as possible."
