Total revenue for the second quarter of 2012 increased $147,113 (23%) from the first quarter of 2012 and decreased $69,787 (8%) over the second quarter of 2011. The sequential increase in revenue is due to many of VRX's hotel clients increasing their marketing budgets coming into the summer months; whereas, the year-over-year decrease is due to the completion of two long-term licensing contracts.

"Although we continue to face challenges caused by the global economic climate, we've seen a marked increase in marketing spend by hotels throughout the US, Western Europe and Asia since the beginning of the second quarter," commented David MacLaren, President and CEO of VRX Worldwide. "Our existing client base has actively begun updating the coverage of their properties and we continue to win new corporate contracts with three, four and five star hotel brands globally."

"On the MediaValet front, we continue to see demand for cloud-based digital asset management services increase month-over-month. Being first to market with a 100% cloud-based product was a huge advantage for us and we continue to invest in new features to broaden our target markets. Today, we have customers in a wide variety of industries across North America, Europe, Asia and Oceania. With demand increasing and the MediaValet brand becoming synonymous with cloud-based digital asset management services, we're confident we're on the right path," continued MacLaren.
