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
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.
