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®."

  • Revenues for the third quarter of 2012 increased 21% over the comparable period for 2011
  • Gross Profit Margin remained stable at 84%
  • Backlog at the end of the quarter totaled approximately $18.3 million – a 59% increase over backlog at December 31, 2011 and the highest balance in 7 years
  • Cash balance at quarter end of $2.6M is the highest balance since 2008
  • Solid new contract sales results:
    • New contract sales year-to-date for 2012 outpaced 2011 and 2010 new contract sales by 57% and 99%, respectively

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%.

All contracts are subject to possible delays or cancellation or can change in scope in a positive or negative direction.  Therefore, current backlog is not necessarily indicative of the Company's future quarterly or annual revenue.  Historically, backlog has been a poor predictor of the Company's short-term revenue.

Except for the historical information contained in this press release, the statements made in this release are forward-looking statements.  These forward-looking statements are made based on management's expectations, assumptions, estimates and current beliefs concerning the operations, future results and prospects of the Company and are subject to uncertainties and factors which are difficult to predict and, in many instances, are beyond the control of the Company, and which could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated in these forward-looking statements.  For a list of certain factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated in these forward looking statements, please see the Company's report filed with the OTCQX Market on August 15, 2012 announcing its results for the three-month period ending June 30, 2012.
