Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Nov. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- VirtualScopics, Inc. (NASDAQ:  VSCP), a leading provider of quantitative imaging, today announced revenues of $2,227,877 for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 compared to $3,328,217 for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. Net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2013 was $751,322 compared to a net loss of $79,249 for the three months ended September 30, 2012. Year to date 2013 new project awards and bookings exceed $19 million which is more than double the amount of new project awards and bookings when compared to the same period in 2012.

"From a financial results perspective, this was a challenging quarter for VirtualScopics," said Eric Converse, interim Chief Executive Officer. "While we have demonstrated remarkable improvement in our new project awards in 2013, our revenues are impacted by the slowdown in project awards we experienced in 2012. We are encouraged by our bookings in 2013, and believe that this positive trajectory will continue."

Other third quarter ended September 30, 2013 results were:

  • Gross profit of $816,129 compared to $1,462,056 in the third quarter of 2012.
  • Gross margin of 37% compared to 44% in the third quarter of 2012.
  • Operating loss of $745,014 compared to an operating loss of $53,293 in the third quarter of 2012.
  • Adjusted EBITDA loss of $619,147 compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $192,045 for the third quarter of 2012.

Year to date September 30, 2013 results were:

  • Revenues of $8,467,141 compared to $10,366,236 for the same period in 2012.
  • Gross profit of $3,371,504 compared to $4,216,907 in the first three quarters of 2012.
  • Gross margin of 40% compared to 41% in the first three quarters of 2012.
  • Operating loss of $1,731,098 compared to an operating loss of $438,767 in the first nine months of 2012.
  • Adjusted EBITDA loss of $1,166,057 compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $347,124 for the first three quarters of 2012.

The company expects that full year 2013 revenues will be in line with previous guidance of $10.5 million - $11.0 million.

Mr. Converse continued, "I am very pleased with our sales and marketing effort which has resulted in greatly improved year to date awards and bookings when compared to 2012. The team is employing smart strategies, such as complementing our early phase capabilities with late phase capabilities and further leveraging our core technology to strengthen relationships with customers. I believe that actions like these, along with our continued investment in both research and talent, have positioned us quite well to generate value for our customers, stockholders and employees. I look forward to working with the team to continue improving our operational quality and productivity, and as a result, improving our bottom line."

The Company's management will hold a question and answer call today at 11:00 a.m. ET. Interested participants should call 877-407-8035 when calling within the United States or +1 201 689 8035 when calling internationally.  This call can also be accessed at www.virtualscopics.com and will be available for 30 days after the call.

The Company provides Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure to Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") regarding the Company's operational performance. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings less interest, taxes (if any), depreciation and amortization as further adjusted to exclude stock-based compensation expense and the loss/gain on derivative liabilities (mark to market adjustment for warrants).  This financial measure excludes the impact of certain items and, therefore, has not been calculated in accordance with GAAP. The Company's method of calculating Adjusted EBITDA, however, may differ from methods used by other companies, and, as a result, Adjusted EBITDA measures disclosed herein may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies. The Company continues to provide information in accordance with GAAP, however, with the adoption of Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") 815-40 and the non-cash variable nature of stock-based compensation expense and their very substantial impact on the overall reported net income/loss, the Company believes it is also helpful for investors to receive additional information relating more specifically to the Company's operating results. Accordingly, the Company has presented Adjusted EBITDA which excludes the non-cash effects of ASC 815-40 and ASC 718 on its financial results. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA (a) to evaluate the Company's financial performance, (b) to set internal spending budgets, and (c) to measure operational profitability. In addition, investors have requested these non-GAAP financial measures as a means of providing consistent and comparable information with past reports of financial results. Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, the Company has provided a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, net income/(loss), below.
