Gross profit for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 was $1,821,018 compared to $1,639,017 for the quarter ended June 30, 2010.

Net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 was $327,650 compared to $341,024 for the quarter ended June 30, 2010.

Highlights for the first half of 2011 include:

  • Gross profit of $3,420,759 compared to $3,237,130 in first half of 2010, a 6% increase.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $882,177 compared to $868,706 in the comparable period in 2010.

"The company delivered very good top and bottom line operating performance in the second quarter and first half of 2011 along with making progress on the strategic initiatives we outlined at the beginning of the year," stated Jeff Markin, president and chief executive officer of VirtualScopics. "The PPD alliance that we announced in October of 2010 is beginning to pay dividends as we have been awarded several studies resulting from the alliance that are, or soon will be, coming online along with others in the sales process." He further stated, "The personnel investments made earlier in the year to our software and technology teams have resulted in enhancements that will reduce cost, increase study speed, and soon allow for greater customer access to study information through our web portal." He concluded, "As the market awareness of the cost and quality benefits of the PPD alliance increases, along with the deployment of our technology roadmap to enhance efficiency and capabilities, we believe we will see strong demand for our services in the second half of 2011."

"We are pleased with our revenue growth and the solid increase in our operating income during the second quarter," said Molly Henderson, chief business and financial officer of VirtualScopics. "Additionally, our cash position remains strong as we enter the second half of 2011. We continue to balance investment on our development and new market initiatives in order to stay innovative with our technology while being prudent with our capital on-hand." She added, "We are also encouraged by our new business success in 2011 as we've been awarded projects with five new customers this year and are in consideration for projects with several companies new to VirtualScopics."  She concluded, "The continued diversification of our client base will play an important role in helping us achieve our 2011 second half goals."

Jeff Markin and Molly Henderson will provide a business and second quarter 2011 financial update during the conference call tomorrow, August 10, 2011 at 9:00 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 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 compensation expense, the gain (loss) on derivative instrument (mark to market adjustment for warrants) and interest income and other expenses.  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 ASC 815-40 and the non-cash variable nature of stock compensation expense (ASC 718) 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.
