Q1 2015 Financial Results

Revenue in the first quarter of 2015 increased 111% to $1.0 million from $476,000 in the same year-ago quarter. The increase was driven by growing adoption of the company's Select Mobile RDC solutions, along with new product offerings, CheckRisk Pro and Select Mobile Money.

Recurring revenue from the company's RDC products increased 93% to $667,000 (66% of revenue) in the first quarter of 2015 from $345,000 (72% of total revenue) in the same year-ago period.

At the end of the first quarter of 2015, the company's total cumulative contract value increased 70% to a record $59.3 million from $34.8 million in the same year-ago period, with nearly the entire amount representing recurring revenue versus one-time setup or hosting fees. The company defines cumulative contract value as the estimated aggregate 36-month revenue potential of product and service contracts that the company signed with bank and credit union customers over the trailing 24-month period.

Cost of revenues in the first quarter of 2015 totaled $893,000 (89% of revenue), compared to $619,000 (130% of revenue) in the same year-ago period. The increase was primarily due to higher amortization expense associated with the intangible assets acquired with the Select Mobile Money acquisition in March 2014.

Gross profit in the first quarter of 2015 was $112,500, versus a gross profit loss of $142,000 in the same year-ago period.

Net loss attributable to common stockholders in the first quarter of 2015 totaled $3.2 million or $0.17 per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $2.9 million or $0.47 per basic and diluted share in the first quarter of 2014.

Adjusted EBITDA loss (a non-GAAP term defined as net loss before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, and non-recurring items) for the first quarter of 2015 totaled $2.5 million compared to an adjusted EBITDA loss of $1.9 million in the same year-ago period (see further discussion about the use of adjusted EBITDA, below).

Non-GAAP loss for the first quarter of 2015 totaled $2.7 million or $0.14 per share, compared to $2.6 million or $0.43 per share in the same year-ago period.

Management Commentary

"During the first quarter, we continued to build upon our operational momentum and made significant progress executing on our growth plan," said the company's president and CEO, Jeffrey Mack. "This was demonstrated by several quarterly records, including record revenue, record recurring revenue and the greatest number of products sold in a quarter.

"Our first quarter performance also reflected our success in upselling and cross-selling our existing customers, as well as diversifying our revenue base, including securing two major new customers. This activity resulted in an 11% sequential increase and 50% year-over-year increase in products sold, totaling a record 37. This momentum has continued into the second quarter with 21 new products sold in April alone.

"In the first quarter 12 new products we sold to 11 existing customers, and for the first time, a single customer purchased three separate products. This reveals the fertile opportunity we have to upsell and cross-sell existing customers. In fact, about 95% of our existing customers have only one of our products. This represents a significant opportunity for us to cross-sell the more than 14 products we now currently offer as compared to the only five we offered a year ago.

"Looking ahead, we plan to drive incremental revenue and gain market share by expanding our product portfolio and internal sales resources, while further building our reseller network. Our success will be measured by signing new customers as well as upselling and cross selling our existing customers, with this leading to higher recurring revenue, and ultimately cash flow profitability. We plan to build on our momentum as we move through 2015, which will lay the foundation for more strong growth and profitability in 2016."

Use of Non-GAAP Information

In evaluating the Company's financial performance and operating trends, management considers information concerning the Company's net sales, adjusted gross margins, adjusted operating expenses, and adjusted EBITDA, among other items, which are not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") in the United States of America. The Company's management believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors because they provide supplemental information that facilitates comparisons to prior periods and for the evaluation of financial results. Management uses these non-GAAP measures to evaluate its financial results, develop budgets and manage expenditures. The method the Company uses to produce non-GAAP results is not computed according to GAAP, is likely to differ from the methods used by other companies and should not be regarded as a replacement for corresponding GAAP measures. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP results, which is attached to this release and can also be found on the Company's website at
