Results of Operations

Comparison of the three month period ended June 30, 2014 with the three month period ended June 30, 2013.

We recorded $1,767,599 in gross revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2014, offset by $907,939 of the expected settlement discount resulting in net revenue of $859,660. For the same period in 2013, gross revenue was $1,790,073, offset by $922,742 of the expected settlement discount, resulting in net revenue of $867,331. We are currently affiliated with three spine injury diagnostic centers in the United States, which are located in Houston, Texas; Odessa, Texas; and San Antonio, Texas. While we were affiliated with fewer centers for the three months ended June 30, 2014, compared to same period in 2013, the revenue mix had higher priced procedures in 2014 period.

Service cost was $423,651 for the three months ended June 30, 2014 compared to $360,008 for the same period in 2013. The increase is due mainly to a sales mix that had higher cost procedures.

During the three months ended June 30, 2014, we incurred $532,958 of operating, general and administrative expenses compared with the $477,280 for the same period in 2013. The increase is attributable to increases, in travel expenses of approximately $13,000, QVH marketing of $57,000, $10,000 in audit costs, $6,000 in consulting costs, and legal fees of $27,000, coupled with decreases of investor relations by $9,000, decrease of $10,000 in director and officer non-cash compensation and non-cash consulting expenses of $37,000 and other net general and administrative expenses of approximately $2,000.

As a result of the foregoing, we had net loss of $153,245 ($.01/sh) for the three months ended June 30, 2014, compared to a net loss of $101,525 ($.01/sh) for the three months ended June 30, 2013.

Used in above Comparison-Q1 2014 results

The Company recorded $657,931, in gross revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2014, offset by $323,243 of the expected settlement discount resulting in net revenue of $344,688. In January 2014 we made the decision to cease affiliations with centers in Florida and terminated our affiliation with our healthcare provider in the state. Also in January 2014, the Company made the decision to discontinue our affiliation with Waltham Associates in McAllen, Texas in connection with what the Company believed was an isolated situation which increased competition in the area. We had no revenue from our Florida or McAllen affiliates for the three months ended March 31, 2014. As a result of the foregoing, we had a net loss of $480,287 or $.03 per share for the three months ended March 31, 2014.

Dr. William Donovan, President and CEO, stated, "While it was not an easy decision in January to terminate relationships with centers that were generating 70% of our past revenues, as stated at the time, we felt re-deploying our resources into more productive markets was the right move. Being able to effectively match results from Q2 13 when those four centers were operational and included in that quarters numbers, seems to be quickly justifying our decision. It is management's goal to continue to grow our legacy business both by increasing procedures in our existing markets as well as expending into new markets in this year's second half."

Donovan went on to say, "While our QVH has been an invaluable tool for our proprietary use, showing it in several Trade shows to both the medical and legal community has confirmed there is a large market for a more technologically advanced and modifiable version. Based on feedback from these shows, we made the decision to develop a truly dynamic product for national as well as international sales; not only by raising the quality of the unit, but also by bringing in Michael Smith, a top rated Medical Sales & Marketing professional with a strong background in video integration, telemedicine and spinal implants. We also have a consulting agreement with David Spencer, our Technology Team leader. The synergism and collaboration between these two brilliant professionals gives SPIN an exceptional opportunity to participate in the exciting Video Management Systems (VMS) Medical Device sector. I wholeheartedly invite all shareholders and interested parties to attend, or if not possible, then later access the video replay of our Q2 interactive video conference call being held today."
