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.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...

An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
Everyone knows that truly innovative companies learn as they go along, pushing boundaries in response to market changes and demands. What's more of a mystery is how to balance innovation on a fresh platform built from scratch with the legacy tech stack, product suite and customers that continue to serve as the business' foundation. In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, discussed why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue and mor...

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments.
