IP Applications Corp. Reports Q2 2008 Results

    VANCOUVER, Aug. 29 /CNW/ - IP Applications Corp. (TSX-Venture: IPX) today
announced its quarterly results for the three and six-month periods ended
June 30, 2008.
    For the quarter ended June 30, 2008 revenue was $1.3M, a decrease of 30%
from $1.9M in the corresponding period in 2007. The net loss increased 51% to
$(374)K from $(247)K. EBITDA loss was $(313)K as compared to an EBITDA loss of
(13)K in the corresponding quarter in 2007.
    For the six-months ended June 30, 2008 revenue was $3.0M, a decrease of
25% from $4.0M in the corresponding period in 2007. The net loss increased 18%
to $(512)K from $(433)K. EBITDA loss was $(412)K as compared to EBITDA of 12K
in the corresponding period in 2007.
    John Jacobson, President and CEO said "Despite a challenging quarter in
the technical support and Internet Service segment of our business, we're
making solid progress establishing our Software as a Service ("SaaS") business
as the dominant driver of future shareholder value. Multiples and valuations
of successful SaaS companies are many times greater than conventional help
desk and hosted applications providers.
    In the second quarter we committed significant staff and cash resources
to begin marketing our billing and subscriber management services into the
fast growing SaaS and Cloud Computing markets. Early efforts yielded our first
contract for these services with Logistica Solutions Inc. of Anaheim,
California. Our updated www.SaaSAutomation.com website and online marketing
campaigns are also generating new leads. Market research commissioned by the
Company shows that companies in the enterprise software space are searching
for technical solutions to billing and subscriber management problems. Our
intention is to expand and focus IP Applications' business into this
fast-growing high-value market."

    Non-GAAP measures

    EBITDA is a key measure used by management to evaluate the Company's
performance. Management believes that EBITDA is useful as it provides an
indication of the results generated by the Company's business activities prior
to taking into consideration how those activities are financed and taxed and
also prior to taking into consideration asset depreciation and other non-cash
expenditures. EBITDA is not a recognized measure under Canadian GAAP, and
accordingly, investors are cautioned that EBITDA should not be construed as an
alternative to net earnings or loss determined in accordance with GAAP as an
indicator of the financial performance of the Company or as a measure of the
Company's liquidity and cash flows. EBITDA may not be comparable to similar
measures presented by other issuers. The schedule below details how
IP Applications reconciles its net loss per GAAP to EBITDA for the most recent
four quarters:
