REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., May 15, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Communication Intelligence Corporation ("CIC") (OTCQB:CICI), a leading supplier of electronic signature and other software solutions enabling secure and cost-effective management of document-based, digital transactions, today reported total revenue of $301,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2014, an increase of $66,000 or 28%, compared to total revenue of $235,000 for the same quarter in the prior year.
"Despite the positive increase compared to the first quarter of 2013, our results were below expectations," said Philip Sassower, chairman and chief executive officer for CIC. "As we work on growing our recurring revenue, we know that CIC remains susceptible to volatility in the near term. The potential for revenue growth at the company remains robust and we expect to resume our positive trend on a year-to-year basis going forward."
For the quarter ended March 31, 2014, operating expenses were $1,369,000, a decrease of $126,000, or 8%, compared to operating expenses of $1,495,000 for the same quarter in the prior year. This decrease was primarily due to a decrease in stock option compensation expenses.
For the quarter ended March 31, 2014, the net loss attributable to common stockholders was $2,056,000, an increase of $326,000, or 19%, compared to a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $1,730,000 for the same quarter in the prior year. This increase was primarily due to a higher non-cash accretion of beneficial conversion feature on preferred stock and preferred stock dividends, offset by the aforementioned increase in revenue and decrease in operating expenses, compared to the same quarter in the prior year.
Additional financial information regarding CIC's operating results for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, will be available in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q that will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and available at www.sec.gov.
