CALGARY, Sept. 4, 2013 /CNW/ - Ivrnet Inc., (TSX-V: IVI), is pleased to report its financial results for the second quarter 2013. Following record profits in Q1, Ivrnet continued with its strong performance to reduce costs while recording a profit in Q2.
"The first half of 2013 has been the most successful six months in Ivrnet's history," says David Snell, CEO of Ivrnet. "A significant amount of the debt acquired in 2012 to build our Community Central brand and rebuild ITSN has been repaid in full, and several new products including AdCentral have been brought to the market. As well, Ivrnet Central, the successor to ITSN v2.1, is well underway and expected to begin market testing by the end of the year."
"We are continuing with our cost optimization strategies - although they are not as significant in Q2 as they were in Q1. Our goal in Q2 and Q3 is to reduce the variable cost of delivering Ivrnet products to market. Our successful strategy in Q1 was to reduce our fixed operating costs.
Revenues for the second quarter of 2013 were up 7.9% to $978,334 compared to $906,364 for the same quarter in 2012. Revenues for the first half of 2013 were up 5.0% to $2,127,484. Included in the first quarter of 2013 was $205,920 in revenues from the new Community Central product. Included in revenues from the second quarter of 2013 was $113,506 from the new Safe Team, Text, and 311 support products. This represents an increase of over $95,000 compared to the second quarter of 2012. In Q2 the Company had net income of $13,360 versus a net loss of $195,031 in 2012, and a half year net income of $168,189 compared to a net loss of $174,354 for the first half of 2012. This is an increase in profit of $342,543 in 2013 over the same period of 2012.
Snell is cautiously optimistic that Ivrnet's cost reduction strategies and recently launched products will result in continued profitability in the remaining two quarters of 2013.
