Voiceserve, Inc. Reports Full Year and Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2011 Financial Results

Company delivers 33% year-over-year revenue increase

Company schedules conference call to provide progress update

LONDON, ENGLAND--(Marketwire - July 5, 2011) - VoiceServe, Inc. (OTCBB:VSRV), a low-cost, next-generation Internet Telephony software and service provider, today reported financial results for its full year and fourth quarter fiscal year ended March 31, 2011. Fiscal year 2011 caps off a highly productive year for the Company during which it enhanced its management team and Board of Directors, completed a private placement of its common stock, increased its sales, marketing and engineering staffs, and completed the build-out of its VoIP software platform to include mobile dialers for the broad range of smart phones including Blackberry, Symbian, Windows, Android and iPhone/iPad. The Android and iPhone/iPad apps include the advanced features of video conferencing and group instant messaging. In addition the company launched its video-on-demand (VOD) module which can be linked to the latest tablets and smart phones. Voiceserve has now completed its shift from a development stage entity to a growth stage company in full commercialization mode.

Voiceserve reported revenue for fiscal 2011 of $4.4 million, an increase of approximately 33 percent compared to $3.3 million for the prior fiscal year. The Company's revenue growth reflected increased licensing sales from the successful launch of its Blackberry and Android mobile modules. Voiceserve anticipates revenue growth acceleration during its current fiscal year 2012, as its recently completed, comprehensive VoIP software platform, inclusive of innovative apps for mobile phone and VOD, penetrates the market. The Company reported a net loss of $(772,000) or $(0.02) per basic share for fiscal 2011. This compares to a net loss of $(665,000) or $(0.02) per basic share for fiscal year 2010. Voiceserve expects to achieve profitability in the current fiscal year.

For fiscal 2011, Voiceserve's gross profit totaled $2.1 million, yielding a gross margin of 48 percent, compared to a gross margin of 65 percent for the prior twelve month period. The year-over-year gross margin decrease was the result of the Company's decision to expand into new geographic markets, specifically North and Latin America, and the development of video-on-demand technology. The Company expects its gross margin to improve to levels more reflective of a software company in the current fiscal year.

Sales, general and administrative (SG&A) costs in fiscal 2011 were $3.2 million compared to $2.8 million for the previous fiscal year. The increase in SG&A year-over-year reflects increased marketing costs, increased sales and sales-engineer staff, the development of new software applications (especially for mobile phones), and the further development of its video-on-demand offering. Voiceserve intends to continue to closely manage costs, which decreased as a percent of gross revenue by approximately 13 percent, year-over-year.

The Company reported revenues for the fourth quarter of $1.0 million, representing a 12 percent increase over the comparable period in fiscal 2010 of $913,000 and compares to $1.3 million in the third quarter of its fiscal year 2011. The decrease in revenue from the third to the fourth quarter of the current fiscal year resulted from the company's decision to transition its sales strategy. Since inception, Voiceserve focused its sales effort on small-to-medium sized businesses, and deployed standard channels of advertising. However, during the last quarter of fiscal year 2011, the Company redirected a significant portion of its sales effort to focus on sales to larger, global corporations. Results from this strategic transition are expected to surface in the first quarter of the current fiscal year. In addition, the Company increased its sales force during the fourth quarter to ensure sufficient sales coverage to the full spectrum of target companies. The Company reported a net loss for its fourth quarter of $(263,000), compared to losses of $(115,000) and $(42,000) for the fourth quarter of the prior fiscal year and the third quarter of the fiscal 2011, respectively.

At March 31, 2011, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $142,000 and accounts receivable of $49,000; the Company's DSO (days sales outstanding) represents approximately 5 days, which is considered exceptionally low by industry standards. The Company continues to carry no long term debt and stockholder's equity totals $1.7 million. Subsequent to fiscal 2011 year end, the Company completed a sale of 3,830,769 shares of its common stock to certain accredited investors for $498,000 in a Private Investment in Public Entity (PIPE) transaction. Investors participating in this transaction also received warrants to purchase one half of a share of the Company's common stock at $0.30 for each share of its common stock purchased in the offering. The use of proceeds is predominately directed towards expanding its sales and marketing effort and for general business purposes. Inclusive of the PIPE completed after fiscal 2011, Voiceserve has approximately 42.2 million shares of common stock outstanding and fully diluted shares of approximately 47.9 million. The aggregate proceeds if all options and warrants were to be exercised would approximate $2.2 million.

"We spent the past year building out the applications for our robust software platform and we believe we have succeeded in creating an advanced, disruptive technology. Uniquely, Voiceserve's entire software platform with multiple advanced and first-to-market applications is consolidated onto one simplified billing module. In addition, our platform is windows-based, and thus open-architecture, simple and fast to deploy, backed by strong customer support, and competitively priced. We recently shifted our marketing effort to include significant corporate enterprises and are receiving a great deal of attention from prospective clients. We believe our global mobile dialers and video-on-demand capabilities are a material competitive advantage within the VoIP industry and have already led to several contracts in this current first quarter with large telecommunications carriers," commented Michael Bibelman, Voiceserve's CEO.

Alexander Ellinson, Voiceserve's Chairman, added, "Our industry is under extraordinary change, and we believe that our team is consistently at the forefront of this change and that our suite of next generation VoIP software solutions is attractive to large carriers. Over the past three years, we have consistently grown our reseller business while concurrently achieving significant milestones in the build-out of our software platform and numerous application modules. Now that our product offering is complete, we see the growth in our business accelerating and significant recurring revenue building. While our traditional sales effort will continue to grow, it is becoming clear that newly launched initiatives with large enterprises will be a material additional contributor to revenues beginning in the first quarter of fiscal year 2012. Consequently, we anticipate generating revenue of approximately $9 million in this current fiscal year 2012 with fully diluted earnings per share of $0.08."
