MINDEN, Nev., Aug. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Spare Backup, Inc. (OTCBB: SPBU) the developers of white label online backup services for mobile phones, PCs and handheld devices, today said that it was comfortable with projections issued by Leonard Bogner, President of Bogner Business Associates LLC, in his report on the company.  The report can be found in its entirety at http://www.corporateprofile.com

In the report, Bogner concludes that "momentum is finally building at Spare Backup".  He reports that after a delay in the various launches of programs by Spare Backup customers, he believes that the initial benefits of the company's strategic plan will begin to become evident shortly.  Bogner reports that he expects to see Spare Backup report revenues of at least $2-3 million during the fourth quarter of this year, which would be a significant ramp-up from its current sales levels, and is attributed to what "we believe will be the initial turnover of current 'free-trial' contracts and new launches."  

Bogner also adds that "We think the company could be close to breakeven and cash flow positive by early 2012."  Bogner goes on to project that as the company "fully ramps up with four of its 'core customers' in 2012, we see revenues approaching $50 million and expect SPBU to report a net profit of more than $10 million or $0.05 per share."  Bogner expects that Spare Backup will report a net loss of more than $10 million in 2011.

Additionally, the report cites the long-term prospects for the company that are even more impressive, noting that in its opinion, "revenues could more than double in 2013 and could be at least $250 million by 2015.  This suggests earnings likely hitting $0.15 to $0.20 per share in 2013 and $0.60 to $0.65 per share in 2015."

Bogner recommends Spare Backup as an investment for risk-tolerant investors with a "speculative buy" rating for the following reasons:

  1. The company has weathered the storm of delays in launching its proprietary products;
  2. The global market opportunity for mobile devices is huge;
  3. The company is very savvy about protection/backup systems for 'smart phones'

The analysts believe that the company will be both profitable and cash flow positive in 2012.
