WELLINGTON, Fla., Nov. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CiG Wireless Corp (OTCBB: CIGW) today announced its earnings for the third quarter ended September 30, 2014. CiG Wireless Corp. (the "Company") headquartered currently in Wellington, Florida is a growing company that operates, develops and owns wireless communication towers in the United States.
Revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2014 was approximately $1.8 million, which was an increase of approximately $0.8 million or 87% compared to the same period of the prior year. The increase was primarily attributable to revenue generated from the acquisitions completed during 2013 and 2014.
Loss from operations for the three months ended September 30, 2014 remained flat at approximately $2.1 million, as compared to the same period of the prior year due to the fact that the revenue growth achieved during the three months ended September 30, 2014 was offset by higher stock compensation and overhead expenses. In addition, depreciation, amortization and accretion expense for the three months ended September 30, 2014 increased by approximately $0.4 million, or 51% compared to the same period for the prior year. The increase in depreciation, amortization and accretion expense was primarily attributable to the acquisition of towers completed during 2013 and 2014.
Net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2014 was approximately $1.5 million compared to a net loss of approximately $5.1 million in the same period for the prior year. The decrease in net loss was the result of improved operating results due to revenue growth, the gain from the decrease in the fair value of derivatives recorded during the third quarter 2014 and the loss on modification of Class A interests recorded in the third quarter 2013 partially offset by higher stock compensation expense and higher interest expense during the third quarter 2014 in connection with the increase in our borrowings under the Credit Facility in addition to the indemnity fees incurred during the three months ended September 30, 2014.
As of September 30, 2014, the Company's cash and cash equivalents balance was approximately $0.6 million. During the three months ended September 30, 2014, the Company paid approximately $0.7 million for the construction of antenna towers.
