Revenues for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012 were $2,988,000 as compared to $1,404,000 in the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011. This $1,584,000 or 113% rise is due to increases in IP licensing and services.
Gross profit for fiscal 2012 rose 104% to $1,683,000 from $825,000 in fiscal 2011 primarily due to the sale of Illume Mobile in July and the elimination of its lower margin professional services.
Operating expenses increased 41% in fiscal 2012 to $3,025,000 from $2,139,000 in 2011 primarily due to expansion of Illume Mobile's sales and marketing in the first half of the year and one-time charges related to the divestiture of Illume Mobile. Loss from operations was $1,343,000, an increase of $30,000 or less than 1% over operating loss of $1,313,000 in fiscal 2011.
Net loss for fiscal 2012 was ($1,776,000) or $(0.01) per share, as compared to fiscal 2011 net loss of $(2,534,000), or $(0.02) per share, a decrease of ($758,000) or 30%. The decrease was primarily due to the sale of Illume Mobile and the elimination of its operating losses. The Company improved its use of cash in operations, with cash used in operating activities declining by $769,000 in fiscal 2012 as compared to fiscal 2011.
"During fiscal 2012, we made a strategic decision to sell the Illume Mobile business unit and implement a strategy towards debt elimination and profitability. As anticipated, we achieved positive cash flow and profitability in the fourth quarter. Our experienced management team is leveraging our unique position in the mobile app intellectual property space by providing advisory services to a portfolio of clients, including mobile app developers, fortified by intellectual property, which in combination can create substantial passive revenues and equity holdings for our shareholders," stated MacroSolve CEO and President, Jim McGill.
