COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwired - May 6, 2013) - GlobalWise Investments, Inc. (
The company's total revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2013 were $354,871 as compared to $360,328 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, representing a decrease of 2%. The slight decrease in total revenues year-over-year is attributable primarily to the delay in closing several major agreements generated by our expanded sales channel partners, as well as lower revenue from consulting projects during the current quarter. Gross profits were $175,387 for the three months ended March 31, 2013 as compared to $56,381 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, representing an increase of 211%. The improvement in gross profits was due to the decrease in total cost of revenues, one particular example is the decrease in third-party hardware sales that had little to no margin.
GlobalWise's cost of revenues were $179,484 and $303,947 for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively, representing a decrease of 41%. The lower cost of revenues is primarily attributable to less conversion projects and hardware sales, which are third party costs.
Gross margins were 49% and 16% for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively, an increase of 33%. The gross margin increase is again a result of the decrease in total cost of revenues.
Total operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2013 were $801,275 as compared to $1,148,905 during the three months ended March 31, 2012, representing a decrease of 30%. The decrease in operating expenses is primarily due to legal, consulting and professional fees related to the Share Exchange and reverse merger consummated during the first quarter of 2012, the corresponding costs of operating and reporting as a public company, and the on-boarding of additional personnel which were incurred during that period.
GlobalWise reported a loss from operations of $625,888 for the three months ended March 31, 2013, compared to a loss of $1,092,524 for the three months ended March 31, 2012. The loss is attributable primarily to lower revenues and the deferment of software licenses with professional services revenues which will be recognized in subsequent reporting periods. The Company's operating loss decreased 43%, primarily due to lower expenses and the implementation of cost-savings initiatives during the year.
GlobalWise reported a net loss of $671,797 and $1,147,873 for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively, representing a decrease in net operating loss of 42%. The lower net operating loss for the current quarter reflects the absence of $305,000 in costs associated with the Share Exchange and reverse merger which were incurred during 2012.
As of March 31, 2013 GlobalWise had $1,363,552 in cash compared to $140,510 at March 31, 2012. The increase in cash is a result of the Company's financing activities during the first quarter, which raised net proceeds of $2,731,021. For the three months ended March 31, 2013, cash from non-financing activities was $850,870 as a result of the conversion of equity during the period. GlobalWise initiated a debt reduction initiative in September 2012, which has reduced the Company's debt by 49% through March 31, 2013.
Mr. William J. "BJ" Santiago, Chief Executive Officer of GlobalWise, stated, "In the first quarter of 2013 we reached a significant milestone in completing our first major financing. We believe this financing helps us to, among other things, expand our global channel sales distribution model and expedite our strategies of servicing the small-to-medium (SMB) business sectors world-wide and generate greater revenue in the coming quarters in fiscal 2013."
"With the Intellivue™ solution now fully cloud-enabled, coupled with the addition of three more industry leading channel sales partners in Q1 that included two Fortune 500 companies located in Palo Alto, CA and Irvine, CA respectively, and Muratec America, Inc. (www.muratec.com), a division of Muratec Murata Machinery, LTD, a $3.4 billion private Japanese machinery company," Mr. Santiago continued, "we now have immediately expanded our prospect pool to over 8.5 million companies that may be introduced to the Intellivue™ solution this fiscal year. Because the Intellivue™ solution can be delivered virtually anywhere in the world, we expect to leverage our continued expansion of global channel partners and remain laser focused on providing our ECM cloud-based solution to the underserved SMB market worldwide."
