VirtualScopics Reports 3rd Quarter 2012 Results

Earnings call scheduled for 11am ET today

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- VirtualScopics, Inc. (NASDAQ: VSCP), a leading provider of quantitative medical imaging, today reported revenues of $3,328,217 for the third quarter of 2012 compared to revenues of $3,268,807 in the third quarter of 2011. Gross profit for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 was $1,462,056 compared to $1,496,626 for the quarter ended September 30, 2011. Operating loss for the third quarter of 2012 was $53,293 compared to operating income of $19,559 in the third quarter of 2011. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and excluding stock compensation expense and gain (loss) from derivative financial instrument ("Adjusted EBITDA") for the third quarter of 2012 was $192,045 compared to $341,669 in the comparable period in 2011.

Year to date, ending September 30, 2012, results were as follows:

  • Total revenues of $10,366,236 compared to $10,780,710 for the first nine months of 2011.
  • Gross profit of $4,216,907 compared to $4,917,385 in first nine months of 2011.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $347,124 compared to $1,223,846 in the comparable period in 2011.
  • Working capital as of September 30, 2012 was $9,510,696 compared to $6,353,054 at December 31, 2011.

"In the third quarter we continued to experience the impact of the slowdown in new project awards, delays in the initiation of new studies, and the resulting impact on our top line," said Jeff Markin, president and chief executive officer of VirtualScopics.  He stated, "While our third quarter revenues exceeded our prior year third quarter revenues, the rate of growth and the overall level of revenue are below our capability and expectation. Accordingly we have made, and will continue to make, changes to our selling and operational processes to maximize new project bookings and overall client satisfaction." He concluded, "We are optimistic that because of our strong client relationships, the strengthening of the PPD alliance, and our industry reputation, this slowdown will be temporary and we anticipate returning to our historical growth rates."

"In light of the softness in our revenues during 2012, we are continuing to actively monitor our level of necessary expenditures," stated Molly Henderson, chief business and financial officer of VirtualScopics. She added, "We believe the softness in the level of new project awards will improve and, therefore, anticipate continuing to make the important investments in market opportunities that will support our long-term strategic growth." She continued, "This includes our efforts in the field of personalized medicine which we are continuing to advance." She concluded, "We have a significant amount of projects awaiting decisions and anticipate that we will receive word on these projects prior to the end of this year, thereby, giving us confidence as we enter 2013."

Jeff Markin and Molly Henderson will provide a business and third quarter 2012 financial update during the conference call this morning at 11:00 a.m. ET.  Interested participants should dial 877.407.8035 when calling within the United States or +1 201 689 8035 when calling internationally. This call can also be accessed at www.virtualscopics.com and will be available for 30 days after the call.

The Company provides Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure to GAAP regarding the Company's operational performance. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings less interest, taxes (if any), depreciation and amortization and further adjusted to exclude stock compensation expense and the unrealized gain (loss) on the change in fair value of derivative liabilities (mark to market adjustment for warrants).  This financial measure excludes the impact of certain items and, therefore, has not been calculated in accordance with GAAP. The Company's method of calculating Adjusted EBITDA, however, may differ from methods used by other companies, and, as a result, Adjusted EBITDA measures disclosed herein may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies. The Company continues to provide information in accordance with GAAP. However, with the adoption of ASC 815-40 and the non-cash variable nature of stock compensation expense and their very substantial impact on the overall reported net income/loss, the Company believes it is also helpful for investors to receive additional information relating more specifically to the Company's operating results. Accordingly, the Company has presented Adjusted EBITDA which excludes the non-cash effects of ASC 815-40 and ASC 718 on its financial results. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA (a) to evaluate the Company's financial performance, (b) to set internal spending budgets, and (c) to measure operational profitability. In addition, investors have requested these non-GAAP financial measures as a means of providing consistent and comparable information with past reports of financial results. Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, the Company has provided a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, net (loss)/income.

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...

Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
With the Apple Watch making its way onto wrists all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a staple in the workplace. In fact, Forrester reported that 68 percent of technology and business decision-makers characterize wearables as a top priority for 2015. Recognizing their business value early on, FinancialForce.com was the first to bring ERP to wearables, helping streamline communication across front and back office functions. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kevin Roberts, GM of Platform at FinancialForce.com, will discuss the value of business applications on wearable ...
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is about the digitization of physical assets including sensors, devices, machines, gateways, and the network. It creates possibilities for significant value creation and new revenue generating business models via data democratization and ubiquitous analytics across IoT networks. The explosion of data in all forms in IoT requires a more robust and broader lens in order to enable smarter timely actions and better outcomes. Business operations become the key driver of IoT applications and projects. Business operations, IT, and data scientists need advanced analytics t...

Akana developed the Healthcare Solution in response to healthcare businesses that want to increase electronic, multi-device access to health records while reducing operating costs and complying with government regulations.
For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply wit...
