Results of Operations

We recorded $3,459,231 in net revenues with $1,468,731 in costs of services and gross profit of $1,990,500 for the year ended December 31, 2012. For the same period in 2011, we recorded $5,212,165 in net revenues with $2,120,800 in costs of services and a gross profit of $3,091,365. Revenue was down in 2012 due to multiple factors. The change in our discount rate from 50% in 2011 to 52% in 2012 resulted in a decrease in revenue previously recorded. Revenue was also negatively affected by lower case volume in 2012. Our affiliated healthcare providers accepted fewer patient cases from certain attorneys whose cases had a history of low returns. Additionally in 2012, because of the low returns we have experienced on cases of patients with minimal insurance coverage limits, our diagnostic centers performed fewer of the medically-necessary procedures needed by these patients. The lower revenue coupled with the $1.1 million in non cash charges resulted in the Company's first ever full year loss. These issues were aggressively and successfully addressed along with ancillary new products and services added which will be evidenced by first quarter 2013 results.

Operating, general and administrative expenses for the year ended December 31, 2012, were $1,898,925 as compared to $1,750,219 for the year ended December 31, 2011. The increase in operating expenses was primarily the result of additional overhead associated with opening new centers coupled with increased personnel staffing, bad debt provision, and consulting costs.

Other income (expenses) for the year ended December 31, 2012 was an expense of $521,793 as compared to expense of $26,142 for the year ended December 31, 2011. For the year ended December 31, 2012, other income of $33,436 and gain on extinguishment of debt of $95,568 was offset by $324,147 of interest expense and a litigation settlement expense of $326,650. For the same period in 2011, other income of $24,567 and gain on extinguishment of debt of $150,562 was offset by $201,271 of interest expense.

Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $430,218 or $.02 per share, compared to net income of $1,315,004 or $.08 for the year ended December 31, 2011. Lower revenue, coupled with additional personnel and non-cash charges (interest costs for stock options and stock warrants, litigation settlements, consulting, and bad debt expense) resulted in net income decreasing in 2012 from 2011. We had $1,165,836 of non-cash charges that hit the P&L in 2012 compared to $318,569 in 2011.

Cash collections received in settlements totaled $2,597,000 and $1,781,000 for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.
