PHOENIX, March 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- QuoteMedia, Inc. (OTCQB:QMCI), a leading provider of market data and cloud-based financial applications, announced financial results for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012. These results reflect a 10% increase in year-over-year revenue, from $8,964,181 in 2011 to $9,870,769 in 2012. QuoteMedia reported an operating profit in 2012 of $166,652, compared to an operating loss in 2011 of $219,891, an improvement of $386,543.
QuoteMedia has now reported annual revenue growth for ten consecutive years.
"This has been another strong year for QuoteMedia," says Robert J. Thompson, Chairman of the Board of QuoteMedia, Inc. "Consistent with our forecasts, we experienced a significant increase in revenue, and solid performance across all product lines.
"While we expect continued revenue growth in 2013, that growth will be tempered by the recent Chapter 11 filing by one of our larger clients, Penson Worldwide, Inc. which will result in the loss of associated revenues to QuoteMedia. This reduction of revenue will result in lower revenue for the first half of 2013. However, we expect a return to revenue growth in the 3rd and 4th quarters based on new product deployments that have been recently completed or are near completion, and on several new opportunities that are emerging for us in the marketplace. In particular, the recent liquidation of one of our competitors is presenting important opportunities. AlphaTrade, a competitive provider of web-based market data services, has ceased operations. This means more than just the removal of a competitor in that market segment. As part of AlphaTrade's liquidation proceedings, TMX Group has acquired AlphaTrade's customer list and, in cooperation with QuoteMedia, is approaching AlphaTrade clients with the opportunity to replace AlphaTrade services with data services provided through TMX Group. We are experiencing significant client uptake, and expect to see increased revenue growth from this opportunity reflected in our 3rd Quarter and 4th Quarter results.
"We are proud of what we have accomplished in 2012. We reported a net loss of $509,527 in 2012, compared to a net loss of $752,381 in 2011 – an improvement of $242,854. We anticipate that 2013 will be another year of positive achievement for QuoteMedia, and we look forward to continuing in this direction into the foreseeable future."
