Operating Results for the Three and Six Months Ended June 30, 2014
Total revenue for the second quarter of 2014 of $1,596,236 represented an increase of 67% over the comparable 2013 second quarter and an increase of 17% from the first quarter of 2014.
Revenue details are as follows:
Change from --------------------- Three months ended Previous Comparable ------------------------------------- June 30, March 31, June 30, 2014 Q1 2013 Q2 2014 2014 2013 Recurring revenue Subscription revenue $ 1,166,262 $ 1,069,923 $ 750,140 9.0% 55.5% Maintenance 19,412 19,412 17,350 0.0% 11.9% ------------------------------------- 1,185,674 1,089,335 767,490 8.8% 54.5% Professional and other services 410,562 271,395 187,562 51.3% 118.9% ------------------------------------- Total revenue $ 1,596,236 $ 1,360,730 $ 955,052 17.3% 67.1% -------------------------------------
Recurring revenue of $1,185,674 grew by 9% from the first quarter of 2014 and by 55% from the comparable second quarter of 2013. Within recurring revenue, subscription revenue grew 9% from the first quarter of 2014 and by 56% from the comparable second quarter of 2013. Subscription revenue from operator channels increased 3% over the 2014 first quarter and by 53% over the comparable 2013 second quarter.
Professional and other services revenue of $410,562 grew by 51% from the first quarter of 2014 and by 119% from the comparable second quarter of 2013. The 2014 second quarter professional and other services revenue included approximately $376,000 from large contracts with major operators and mobile device vendors while the Q12014 professional and other services revenue included $235,000 and the Q22013 professional and other services revenue included approximately $141,000 from this same group. Revenue from these larger contracts is recognized as the services are performed and is subject to variability due to the availability of contracts from customers and resources to perform the work.
Loss from operations was reduced to $52,510 and $176,566 respectively for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 from $318,596 and $652,823 for the comparable three and six months ended June 30, 2013 representing an improvement of $266,086 (84%) and 476,257 (73%) respectively. The decreased operating loss in the first half of 2014 compared to 2013 relates primarily to the achievement of a 60% increase in revenue with only a 25% increase in operating expenses.
The Company had a net loss of $176,677 and $353,322 respectively for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 compared to net income of $535,485 and $179,032 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, the Company had other income of $875,070 related to the sale of certain patents and a reduction in deferred revenue due to the reversal of the underlying obligation. Excluding the one-time other income items totaling $875,070, the Company would have presented a pro forma net loss of $339,585 and $696,038 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, reflecting a pro forma improvement of $162,908 (48%) and $342,716 (49%) respectively over the comparable three and six months ended June 30, 2013.
As at June 30, 2014, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $3,396,086 and net working capital of $3,617,401.

Wearable technology was dominant at this year’s International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) , and MWC was no exception to this trend.
