DATATRAK International, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results

59% Increase in Backlog - 21% Increase in Revenue - Highest Cash Balance in Four Years

CLEVELAND, Nov. 12, 2012  /PRNewswire/ -- DATATRAK International, Inc. (OTCQX: DATA), a leader in developing cloud-based, unified eClinical™ technologies and delivering related services for the clinical trials industry, today announced its operating results for the third quarter of 2012.

"DATATRAK's robust third quarter performance demonstrates the realization of the strategic investments we continue to make.  We believe our results indicate that the industry is beginning to embrace the benefits of our DATATRAK ONE™ unified platform," stated Laurence P. Birch, DATATRAK's Chairman of the Board and CEO.  "As the cost for new drug development is ever increasing, we believe DATATRAK offers what others cannot – a true Total Cost of Ownership advantage.  In our opinion, our competitors mask their high pricing and inefficiencies by emphasizing paper to EDC efficiencies.  The sophisticated simplicity of our cloud-based unified platform drives down total trial costs, while also offering a lower cost solution.  DATATRAK is a global company, transforming the drug development process with global solutions – from Concept to Cure®."

Financial Highlights:
Driven by the continued improvement in backlog and new contract sales, revenue for the third quarter of 2012 increased 21% to $2.5 million compared to $2.1 million in the third quarter of 2011.  The gross profit margin remained stable at 84% for the three months ended September 30, 2012 and for the three months ended September 30, 2011.  The Company's loss from operations for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was $(456,000) compared to $(466,000) for the corresponding period in the prior year.  The operating results for both years reflect the Company's planned strategic expansion of the Sales, Marketing and Software Development, as well as the accrual of management incentive plan awards and sales compensation awards; whereas 2012 also reflects strategic investments in Finance, Quality Assurance, and consulting costs to complete user interface enhancements.

DATATRAK's backlog at September 30, 2012 was $18.3 million compared to a backlog of $11.6 million at December 31, 2011.  Backlog consists of future value from authorization letters to commence services, statements of work, technology and services agreements, change orders and other customer contracts, billed and unbilled.  The improvement in backlog from December 31, 2011 to September 30, 2012 was due to the increase in new contract sales.  New contract sales year-to-date for 2012 outpaced 2011 new contract sales by 57%.

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
