Total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2011 decreased $120,698 (15%) from the third quarter of 2011 and $234,764 (26%) from the fourth quarter of 2010. The decrease in revenue is due to the ongoing effects of the prolonged global downturn, expiration of a long-term licensing contract, normal fourth quarter seasonality and a weaker US dollar.

"2011 was a very challenging year for VRX Studios. The combination of a weak US dollar and the ongoing weakness of the global economy continued to dampen demand for our services and resulted in a net loss after two consecutive years of profitability," commented David MacLaren, President and CEO of VRX Worldwide. "Although 2011 was one of VRX Studios toughest years yet, our customer base of over 10,000 hotels remains strong, our relationships with our customers are deeper than ever, and MediaValet is gaining market share and attention both at home, in North America, and abroad in Europe and Asia/Pacific. As 2012 begins, we're finally seeing signs that the global economy is waking up as Hospitality brands around the world are beginning to budget new marketing campaigns for the first time since the downturn began."
