PHOENIX, May 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- QuoteMedia, Inc. (OTCQB:QMCI), a leading provider of market data and cloud-based applications, announced financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2015. These results reflect a 2% decrease in first quarter revenues, to $2,188,317 from $2,224,067 in the comparative period in 2014.
"The average U.S. to Canadian dollar exchange rate experienced in the first quarter of 2015 is approximately 12% higher than the average rate in the comparative quarter of 2014. This exchange rate differential results in an increased devaluation of our Canadian dollar revenues once translated into U.S. dollars for reporting purposes," said Keith Guelpa, President of QuoteMedia, Inc. "Had the average quarterly exchange rates of the comparative quarters been the same, our first quarter 2015 revenues would have been shown to have increased 2% over those reported for the first quarter of 2014.
Approximately, 27% of our total revenues are billed in Canadian dollars, while approximately 28% of our costs are paid in Canadian dollars. On balance, our expenses incurred in Canadian dollars slightly exceed our Canadian dollar revenue billings, so while the current appreciation of the U.S. dollar may lower 2015 revenue figures compared to 2014, it should actually have a small positive impact on our bottom line in 2015."
