REDMOND, Wash. (May 12, 2006) – Innuity, Inc., an Internet technology company dedicated to helping small businesses succeed, today announced its financial results for the first quarter of 2006.
Consolidated revenues were $5.0 million for the first quarter of 2006, a 317% increase from $1.2 million reported during the same quarter of 2005. Contributing significantly to this substantial revenue increase were Innuity’s 2005 strategic acquisitions: the Internet marketing company, 10x Marketing, (now Innuity’s Lead Generation Services business) and the point-of-sale systems (POS) company, Jadeon (now Innuity’s In-Store Systems business).
Innuity reported an operating loss of $2.5 million for the first quarter of 2006 as compared to a $3.3 million loss during the same quarter of 2005. The company’s net loss for the first quarter of 2006 was $2.7 million (or $(0.15) per basic and diluted share), compared to a net loss of $3.4 million for the first quarter of 2005 (or $(0.82) per basic and diluted share). The operating loss and net loss for the first quarter of 2006 include non-cash charges of $1.7 million, which include a charge of $673,000 for share-based payments, $416,000 of amortization of prepaid royalty costs, $255,000 of accretion of debt discount and $311,000 of depreciation, amortization and other non-cash charges. Non-cash charges for the first quarter of 2005 were $3.0 million, which include a charge of $2.5 million for share-based payments, $416,000 of amortization of prepaid royalty costs, $21,000 of accretion of debt discount and $80,000 of depreciation, amortization and other non-cash charges. Innuity ended the first quarter of 2006 with a working capital deficit of $3.6 million.
“Innuity’s revenue increase year-over year reflects the results of our strategic Internet marketing and POS systems acquisitions, as well as the launch of www.innuitydirect.com, our direct sales engine for all business lines,” said John Wall, chairman and chief executive officer of Innuity. “These acquisitions have added a strong set of new online marketing applications and POS management systems to our small business product offerings, and customers are responding very positively.”
Wall continued, “During this period we also continued to aggressively invest in company infrastructure, product integration, sales and marketing and development in an effort to assimilate and grow our new business lines and successfully bring all products to market. We plan to enrich and expand our product offerings in 2006 in order to help small businesses cost effectively grow their revenues, reach and serve customers and run everyday operations.”
