TORONTO, March 8, 2013 /CNW/ - Angoss Software Corporation (Angoss) (TSX-V: ANC) today announced unaudited results for the three and twelve months ended November 30, 2012 (See attached).
For the three and twelve months ended November 30, 2012, the Company reported a net loss of $359,084 and $1,159,181 respectively compared with the 2011 three and twelve month net loss of $826,234 and $2,805,022 based on earned revenues. In 2011, the Company reported a loss from discontinued operations for the three and twelve months ended November 30 of $402,260 and $1,981,003 respectively. Earned revenue in the three months ended November 30, 2012 increased by 26.9% over 2011. Earned revenue in the twelve months ended November 30, 2012 was up 1.5% respectively over 2011. Earned revenue in any quarter is a function of both previously deferred revenue plus the earned portion of direct billings in the current fiscal quarter. Billed revenue on the other hand reflects orders received and invoiced in that quarter. The Company is required to report earned revenue; however, although billed revenue is not a standardized earnings measure, management believes that understanding billed revenue trends is an important means of analysing the Company's performance.
For the three months ended November 30, 2012, billed initial software and solution revenue increased 27.0%. For the twelve months ended November 30, 2012, billed initial software and solution revenue increased 29.3%. For the three months ended November 30, 2012, billed renewal revenue increased 20.6%. For the twelve months ended November 30, 2012, billed renewal revenue increased 8.5%. For the three and twelve months ended November 30, 2012, year over year billed revenues increased 24.5% and 20.3% respectively.
"We are pleased to have achieved four consecutive quarters of year over year billed revenue growth and we are very pleased that these results were achieved without incremental sales and marketing expense for the period." commented Martin Galligan, President & CEO, "We believe that our efforts to date focussing on our key sales and marketing processes, key performance metrics and our revitalized coverage strategy has yielded the bulk of this success and is evident in the earned revenue growth of 26.9% for the fourth quarter. Although the fourth quarter of 2012 was cash flow positive we continue to be hampered by inadequate working capital to fully execute our go-to-market strategy. That being said we anticipate 15-20% overall billed revenues for the first quarter of 2013"
On January 28, 2013, the Company announced that it had entered into a Binding Letter Agreement dated January 25, 2013 with Peterson Partners, Inc., an arm's length party, in connection with a proposed acquisition (the "Transaction") by an affiliate of Peterson Partners of 100% of the outstanding securities of Angoss. The board of directors of Angoss considered the Transaction and unanimously recommended that Angoss security holders vote in favour of the Transaction at an upcoming special meeting of Angoss shareholders, which will be held to consider and vote on the Transaction. This recommendation remains subject to the receipt by the board of a fairness opinion, and to any superior proposals that are presented to Angoss by third parties prior completion of the Transaction. The special meeting of Shareholders is currently scheduled for April 16, 2013 and materials will be sent to shareholders shortly.
