Versatile Reports First Quarter Results

VANCOUVER, CANADA--(Marketwire - Dec. 19, 2011) - Versatile Systems Inc. (TSX VENTURE:VV)(AIM:VVS) announces its results for the first quarter of the 2012 fiscal year.

Revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2011 was $9,039,212 generating a gross profit of $1,790,378 or 19.8% of sales compared to $9,219,050 generating a gross profit of $2,103,827 or 22.8% of sales for the same quarter last year. The Net Loss for the quarter amounted to $359,911 ($0.00 per share) compared to a Net Loss of $89,314 ($0.01 per share) for the same period last year.

"As a result of economic events occurring mid-quarter, several key customers reduced spending, which negatively impacted both revenue and gross profit," said John Hardy, Chairman and CEO of Versatile. "Nevertheless, we managed to be effectively cash flow neutral. In addition, we obtained a new credit facility of $4.5 million, and reduced operating expenses with a strategic relocation of our Mechanicsburg facility. We are in the process of adding new sales resources and remain committed to improving profitability, while carefully managing our expenses."

Highlights for the quarter included:

  • Revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2011 was $9,039,212 compared to $9,219,050 for the same quarter last year, a decrease of $179,838;
  • The cash flow used in operations amounted to $51,134 for the three months ended September 30, 2011 compared to cash flow generated from operations of $150,269 for the same period last year;
  • The research and development expense for the quarter amounted to $244,110 compared to $192,268 for the same quarter last year;
  • Deferred revenue at September 30, 2011 was $6,047,097 (of which $5,449,475 is expected to be recognized in the next four quarters) compared to $6,320,199 at June 30, 2011; and
  • In order to save costs, the Company relocated to a smaller facility in Mechanicsburg, PA incurring a one-time cost of $65,040. This move will lead to a reduction in premise costs of approximately $200,000 per annum.

During the current quarter, the Company incurred $129,294 for research and development activities related to Mobiquity Route™, DEX and related mobile software products and $72,362 related to Mobiquity Transaction Engine 3.0™ and Mobiquity Kiosk™.

During the current quarter the Company changed its banking facilities for its U.S. based operations to a new financial institution, which is providing a credit facility for up to $4,500,000 on more favorable terms than the former bank.

"While the Company incurred a loss of $359,911 the cash used in operations amounted to $51,134," said Fraser Atkinson, CFO of Versatile. "Excluding the one-time moving costs the Company would have generated positive cash flow from operations. In addition, restoring the gross profit of 19.8% to the historical average of 21% to 22% will have a positive impact on cash flow."

The Company adopted IFRS during the current reporting period. The Company has applied the transitional exceptions and exemptions to full retroactive application of IFRS in its preparation of an opening IFRS consolidated statement of financial position at July 1, 2010. The most significant changes include the reclassification of deferred contract costs to intangible assets and the reclassification of current deferred income taxes to long term. Further details of the conversion to IFRS are provided in Management's Discussion and Analysis and in the Notes to the Company's unaudited, Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, as at and for the three months ended September 30, 2011.
