REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Nov. 12, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Communication Intelligence Corporation ("CIC" or "the Company") (OTC Bulletin Board: CICI), the leading supplier of electronic signature solutions for business process automation in the financial industry and the recognized leader in biometric signature verification announced today its financial results for the three and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2010.
"While CIC's business remains impacted by the lingering effect of the economic crises and uncertainty beginning in late 2008, a strong awareness and realization has emerged that electronic signature technology affords solutions to the challenges facing our target financial industry market while simultaneously creating the demand to get the solutions in less time and at lower cost. In particular, the "Pay-as-you-Go" purchase preference that has developed is expected to accelerate the adoption of eSignature solutions as the upfront costs are greatly reduced," stated CIC's President, Guido DiGregorio.
"We have, with our SignatureOne® Ceremony® Server product line, positioned our technology for both on-premise deployments and for on-premise hosted or Software-as-a-Service ("SaaS") deployments including cloud services and mobile device support. Hosted and SaaS deployments are expected to afford us the benefit of ongoing recurring revenue as the forecasted IT spending recovery gets underway. In this regard, we recently announced an agreement with CSC, the leading information technology product and services provider, whereby our electronic signature technology will be incorporated into Celeriti™, CSC's new end-to-end suite of modern enterprise banking solutions and multiple banking and insurance platforms including CSC's SaaS based offerings. We believe this is a milestone event relative to our focus on achieving sustained sales growth via recurring revenue through targeted solutions providers such as CSC."
Total revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2010 were $164,000, a decrease of 81% compared to the prior year period of $877,000. The operating loss for the three months ended September 30, 2010, before interest expense, amortization of loan discount and deferred financing cost and change in derivative liability, was $1,046,000 compared to $365,000 in the prior year, an increase of 187%. The increase in the loss from operations is due to the decrease in revenues from the comparable prior year period. The Company's net loss applicable to common stockholders for the three-month period ended September 30, 2010 was $1,237,000 compared to a net loss of $2,575,000 for the corresponding prior year period. Non-operating expense for the three months ended September 30, 2010 was $191,000, a decrease of $2,019,000, compared to $2,210,000 for the corresponding prior year period. This decrease is primarily attributable to non-cash changes related to the derivative liability. The basic and diluted loss per share was $0.01 on approximately 191 million weighted average common shares outstanding for the three months ending September 30, 2010 and $0.02 on approximately 131 million shares outstanding for the comparable prior year period.
Total revenue of $583,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 decreased $944,000 or 62%, compared to revenues of $1,527,000 in the corresponding prior year period. The operating loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2010, before interest expense and amortization of the loan discount and deferred financing cost, was $3,098,000, compared to $1,947,000 in the prior year corresponding period. The increase in operating loss is due to both the decrease in revenues and increase in operating expenses over the nine-month period.
The Company's net loss applicable to common stockholders for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 and 2009 was $4,549,000 and $6,678,000, respectively. The decrease in the net loss is due primarily to the factors stated above for the three month period ended September 30, 2010 and a $829,000 charge to expense of the remaining unamortized non-cash loan amortization and deferred financing cost associated with the cancellation of the Company's June 2008 notes and warrants, in exchange for new debt and associated warrants issued in May of 2009. The basic and diluted loss per share was $0.02 on approximately 191 million weighted average common shares outstanding for the nine months ending September 30, 2010 and $0.05 on approximately 131 million shares outstanding for the comparable prior year period.
