Results of Operations
We recorded $2,002,259 in gross revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2013, offset by $995,690 of standard allowance for discount resulting in net revenue of $1,006,569. For the same period in 2012, gross revenue was $1,925,138, offset by $978,524 of standard allowance for discount, resulting in net revenue of $946,614 (up 6%). We manage spine injury diagnostic centers located in Texas and Florida. Service cost was $407,838 for the three months ended September 30, 2013 compared to $369,296 for the same period in 2012. During the three months ended September 30, 2013, we incurred $456,619 of operating, general and administrative expenses compared with the $484,082 for the same period in 2012. The decrease is attributable to decreases in investor relations expense by $26,000, consultant fees of $12,000, and travel expenses of approximately $6,000, coupled with an increase of payroll expense of $10,000, legal fees of $14,000 and non-cash director and officer compensation of $12,000 and other net general and administrative expenses of approximately $8,000.
As a result of the aforementioned, we realized net income of $131,237 (up 26%) for the three months ended September 30, 2013 as compared to $104,376 for the three months ended September 30, 2012. It should be noted that there were $221,006 of non cash charges included in net income for Q3 '13.
Spine Pain Management's CEO, Dr. William Donovan, stated; "With no other public companies in our specific niche financing sector to look towards, it has been quite a learning experience in developing our unique business model from scratch. However, in spite of some 'rocks along the road', our rapidly increasing cash collections and strong balance sheet of funded cases, paired with a very low case failure cost to date, demonstrates a very profitable model has evolved. As you can see, to date we have collected some $7.2 million cash on less than 1/3 of our rapidly growing already funded portfolio of cases; yet against these settled cases, the cash cost to the company due to failed cases totals less than $126,000."
Dr. Donovan went on to say, "We have applied for a patent on our quad Video Halo system, a transparency device/system originally conceived for internal use only within our Affiliated Centers. During 2013 the AMA has recommended to their members more transparency in their medical procedures—the area that our QVH hardware/software system addresses. We have negotiated with an independent contractor to manage our QVH entry into the radiological market, with the official launch being Dec. 1 at the RSNA Expo in Chicago. While expenses to launch this new enterprise may be a drag on net income over the next several quarters, the strong margins in this system have the possibility to add to the future potential of SPIN. To learn more about the company and meet management and also the QVH contractor and his plan for QVH, I invite all to attend our Conference Call today or to later review the video replay of the Conference Call on the company website."
