COMMERCE, Mich., Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- iTeknik Holding Corporation (Other OTC: ITKH), a leader in the telecommunications industry through its Send Global subsidiary, today posted its six month FY 2013 financial results. Sales for the period, ending December 31, 2012, were $5,836,725 compared to $6,185,564 for the prior year. Net Income was a loss of ($9,764), compared to a profit of $130,069 during the first six months of FY 2012. Other financial results for the first six months of FY 2013 include:
- Debt decreased by 25%
- Operating Expenses were reduced by 9.1%
Fredrick W. Wicks, Chairman and CEO of iTeknik Holding Corporation, stated, "There were two major influences on our financials for the period. First, Super Storm Sandy had a significant effect. Many customers and suppliers were shut down because of power failures. This included independent retail stores, affiliated telecommunication carriers and local phone access suppliers. In addition, the Company received a deposit on the proposed sale of Send Global assets. The sale is subject to the results of a financial audit, so we had to enter this down payment as a current liability. At the same time there were expenses associated with the proposed sale that were paid in the second quarter. Therefore, we recorded a loss for the first six months. Had we been able to recognize the down payment as income, our financial report would have shown significant net income."
The Company recently announced that it had signed a purchase agreement to sell the assets of its Send Global subsidiary. Since then the Board has been in discussions with a number of organizations to identify a suitable acquisition or merger once the sale of Send Global assets is finalized.
