Financial Highlights:
Driven by the continued improvement in backlog and new contract sales, revenue for the third quarter of 2012 increased 21% to $2.5 million compared to $2.1 million in the third quarter of 2011.  The gross profit margin remained stable at 84% for the three months ended September 30, 2012 and for the three months ended September 30, 2011.  The Company's loss from operations for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was $(456,000) compared to $(466,000) for the corresponding period in the prior year.  The operating results for both years reflect the Company's planned strategic expansion of the Sales, Marketing and Software Development, as well as the accrual of management incentive plan awards and sales compensation awards; whereas 2012 also reflects strategic investments in Finance, Quality Assurance, and consulting costs to complete user interface enhancements.

DATATRAK's backlog at September 30, 2012 was $18.3 million compared to a backlog of $11.6 million at December 31, 2011.  Backlog consists of future value from authorization letters to commence services, statements of work, technology and services agreements, change orders and other customer contracts, billed and unbilled.  The improvement in backlog from December 31, 2011 to September 30, 2012 was due to the increase in new contract sales.  New contract sales year-to-date for 2012 outpaced 2011 new contract sales by 57%.

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
