SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/13/13 -- e.Digital Corporation (OTCQB: EDIG), a long standing source of innovation and future-defining patented technologies, today reported financial results for its third quarter of fiscal 2013, ended December 31, 2012.
The Company reported a net loss of $334,494 or $(0.00) per share for the third quarter of fiscal 2013, compared to a net income of $671,417 or $0.00 per share for the prior year's third quarter. For the third quarter of fiscal 2013 revenues totaled $79,072 compared to $1,281,845 for the third quarter of the prior year. The most recent quarter included $0 of patent license revenues compared to $1,155,000 for the third quarter of the prior year. Gross profit for the third quarter was $6,351 or 8% of revenues, compared to $1,140,046 or 89% of revenues, for the prior year's third quarter. Operating expenses decreased to $400,045 from $437,629 for the prior year's comparable quarter primarily due to reduced patent related costs.
For the nine months ended December 31, 2012 the Company reported a net loss of $1,043,482 or $(0.00) per share on revenues of $336,567. For the comparable nine months of the prior year the Company reported net income of $1,566,084 or $0.01 per share on revenues of $4,506,151. The Company's results are impacted by the timing and amount of license fees and there were no significant licensing revenues so far in fiscal 2013.
"Q3 was essentially a transitional quarter for e.Digital," commented Fred Falk, President and CEO of e.Digital. "With the reexamination of two of our key patents behind us, we were able to reignite our patent monetization efforts. Through our newly retained law firm, Handal & Associates, we have been aggressively pursuing parties believed to infringe the Company's Flash-R patents covering the use of flash memory technologies." In October and November 2012, the Company commenced new enforcement action by filing six complaints in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California. In December 2012 and January 2013 the Company filed an additional ten complaints asserting that products made and sold by the defendant companies infringe the Company's U.S. patents, and dismissed one defendant without prejudice. "We will continue to work hard to protect and enforce the Company's intellectual property and we expect to see positive results through our efforts," continued Falk.
In addition to the Flash-R progress, Q3 was a milestone quarter for new technology development. The Company was granted six patents for context and interpersonal awareness systems technologies, thereby establishing rights and officially launching the Company's Nunchi® patent portfolio. Over the last several months, the Company filed three new Nunchi related patent applications. The Company is also currently developing technologies in the areas of cloud technology, information security and user authentication. "As we return to monetizing our Flash-R patent portfolio we are also now better poised to pursue Nunchi licensing opportunities and to bring on-line our next family of IP," concluded Falk.
