REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Communication Intelligence Corporation ("CIC" or the "Company") (CICI), a leading supplier of electronic signature solutions and the recognized leader in biometric signature verification, today reported total revenue of $235,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2013, a decrease of $432,000 or 65%, compared to total revenue of $667,000 for the same quarter in the prior year.
"While we are disappointed with our first quarter performance, we remain confident in the Company's prospects for continued year-to-year improvements," stated Philip Sassower, CIC's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We know that our transition from one-time license sales to a growing percentage of recurring revenue can result in some bumpy quarter-to-quarter results. The lower sales in the quarter reflect a number of opportunities shifting into subsequent quarters. We remain focused on our client integration efforts, see continued market demand for our solutions and expect to resume our positive trend generating significant revenue growth in the coming quarters."
For the quarter ended March 31, 2013, operating expenses were $1,495,000, an increase of $56,000, or 4%, compared to operating expenses of $1,439,000 in the prior year. This increase was primarily due to an increase in stock option compensation expenses.
For the quarter ended March 31, 2013, the net loss attributable to common stockholders was $1,675,000, an increase of $106,000, or 7%, compared to a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $1,569,000 in the prior year. This increase was primarily due to lower revenues and a greater loss from operations, offset by a lower non-cash accretion of beneficial conversion feature on Preferred Stock and lower interest expense, compared to the same quarter in the prior year.
Additional financial information regarding CIC's operating results for the quarter ended March 31, 2013, will be available in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q that will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and available at www.sec.gov.
