QUEBEC CITY, Oct. 24, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - WANTED Technologies (TSXV: WAN), the leading source of business intelligence for the talent marketplace, reported today a 20 percent year over year increase in revenues and record net income of $1,362,555 or $0.057 per share for fiscal 2013. The Company's annualized recurring revenue base increased 16% during fiscal 2013, reaching $7.2 million in US dollars as of June 30th, 2013. This compares to $6.2 million one year ago. All amounts are in Canadian dollars, unless otherwise indicated.

For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2013, WANTED posted revenues of $7,231,219 compared to $6,028,450 for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012, an increase of $1,202,769 or 20%. These results reflect the successful strategy to diversify the client base and to enter the large market for cloud-based Human Capital management products. Revenues derived from the combined Corporate and Staffing sectors increased 75% during fiscal 2013, and now represent 30% of the Company's fiscal 2013 revenue. This revenue growth is, in part, evidence of an economy that continues to improve, which makes it increasingly difficult for employers and staffing firms to attract and retain talent. The Company's products are designed to enable recruiters identify candidates more efficiently, lowing recruiting costs and decreasing average time-to-hire.

"Our products are designed to be most effective in an economy where there is competition for the best talent," said Bruce Murray President and CEO.

"We provide information that is based on Supply and Demand for talent," said Murray. "We can show our clients where there are adequate numbers of employable candidates and where the competition for that talent is not as intense."

"Both Staffing firms and Corporate HR departments have a need to know in real-time where to put their recruiting resources," said Murray. "As the economy continues to expand, we expect to see the competition for talent intensify and demand for our products increase."

As of June 30, 2013, contracts in hand, in Canadian dollars, represented approximately $7.4 million dollars in annualized recurring revenues. This compares with contracts in hand totalling approximately $6.3 million dollars as of June 30, 2012, an increase of 17 percent. At the end of fiscal 2013, 68% of that recurring revenue base was supported by contracts from the Staffing, Corporate and Government sectors. This compares to 61% at the end of the previous fiscal year.

Overall operating costs remained stable during fiscal 2013, going from $5,460,655 in fiscal 2012 to $5,421,330 in fiscal 2013, a decrease of approximately one percent. A decrease of $272,084 in Marketing and selling expenses during fiscal 2013 was partially offset by an increase of $250,423 in research and development expenses dedicated to continuous product improvement and the development of new product features targeting the Human Capital Sector.

EBITDA of $1,816,907 for the year ended June 30th, 2013 represented a positive variation of $1,351,039 over the EBITDA of $465,868 recorded in the prior year. EBITDA represents the net income before finance costs-net (excluding gain or loss due to variation in foreign exchange), income taxes on net income, and amortization and impairment of property, plant and equipment and intangible assets. As International Financial Reporting Standards do not provide a standardized definition for this measure, it may not be comparable to similar measures used by other companies.

Net income for fiscal 2013 was $1,362,555, or $0.057 per share, an improvement of $1,376,165 over the net loss of $13,610 recorded in fiscal 2012, or ($.001) per share. This improvement mostly results from an increase of 24 % or $1,285,985 in gross margin. A reduction of $39,325 in operating expenses combined with an increase of $34,180 in net finance income also contributed to the improvement in net income in fiscal 2013.
