Results of Operations

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

We recorded $1,130,636 in gross revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2014, offset by $590,117 of the expected settlement discount resulting in net revenue of $540,519. For the same period in 2013, gross revenue was $2,002,259, offset by $995,690 of the expected settlement discount, resulting in net revenue of $1,006,569. The decrease in revenue is due to fewer affiliates. We currently fund three spine injury diagnostic centers in the United States, which are located in Houston, Texas; Odessa, Texas; and San Antonio, Texas. While we funded less centers for the three months ended September 30, 2014, compared to same period in 2013, the revenue mix had higher priced procedures in 2014 period.

Service cost was $241,592 for the three months ended September 30, 2014 compared to $407,838 for the same period in 2013. The decrease is due mainly to the number of affiliate locations we had in 2013 compared to 2014.

During the three months ended September 30, 2014, we incurred $599,511 of operating, general and administrative expenses compared with the $456,619 for the same period in 2013. The main reason for the increase is the expenditures of approximately $141,000 spent on the development of the Quad Video HALO and the development of a sales force. The increase is attributable to increases, in travel expenses of approximately $16,000, QVH marketing of $68,000, $52,000 in consulting costs, $16,000 in research and development, and legal fees of $10,000, depreciation of $17,000, warehouse expense of $6,000, insurance expense of $5,000 coupled with decreases of investor relations by $3,000, and decrease of $51,000 in director and officer non-cash compensation and other increases in net general and administrative expenses of approximately $7,000.

As a result of the foregoing, we had net loss of $394,030 for the three months ended September 30, 2014, compared to a net income of $131,237 for the three months ended September 30, 2013.

Dr. William Donovan stated; "As discussed last quarter, year over year quarterly comparisons are still being negatively affected by the decision in January of this year to terminate our relationships with three Florida Centers and the McAllen TX center which historically made up some 70% of past revenues. However, by closing these centers and focusing on deploying our strong assets on both a concentrated effort to rapidly modify and deploy our latest QVH as a 3rd party tool to bring transparency to the spine related personal injury case sector, but also to new Affiliates with higher profitability potential, we were able to attract a strong financial ally who has also joined the Board of Directors."

Dr. Donovan went on to say; "Procedure funding and therefore revenues remained at a low level in Q3 as we repositioned the Company and available cash for a much more selective and efficient use of funds. This is to be accomplished by adding future physician affiliates and the roll out of the new QVH 4.0 to 3rd parties. The $1.5 million balance of our $2 million credit facility was available at quarters end."
