"We have managed to achieve some significant milestones in the second quarter as part of our short-term growth strategy to gain access to the Chinese market by joining forces with LongKey", said Johnson Joseph, Peak's President and CEO. "In the space of less than a year, we have managed to establish revenue streams from one of China's largest telecom companies and are now poised to add an even larger telecom company as well as China's largest bank to that list revenue contributors", he noted. "This clearly demonstrates that our strategy is working and our revenues for the quarter are right on track with our projections. The prospects for revenue growth in the coming quarters, particularly with the China Unicom agreement, are very exciting", Mr. Joseph stated.
Second Quarter Financial Results Summary
Peak generated $24,513 in gross royalty revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2012 as a result of an on-going pilot project in China and the sharing of royalties with LongKey. There were no revenues in the second quarter of the prior year. As expected, royalties flowing from Peak's agreements with LongKey have started to grow as the on-going pilot involving China Telecom clients slowly expands. A new pilot project, this time involving China Unicom clients, planned for the fall, is expected to provide Peak with the potential for significant revenue growth in future quarters.
Expenses for the three-month period ended June 30, 2012 amounted to $931,781 compared to $455,012 in the comparable period of 2011. The higher 2012 expenses included a $450,000 contribution to the opening of new offices shared with Peak's partner, LongKey, in China as well as a $90,000 contribution to the Peak-LongKey mobile research lab.
The second quarter expenses include R&D expenditures of $126,945 compared to $23,211 in the comparable period of 2011. These costs are before deducting investment tax credits, which are accounted for on an annual basis only.
The net loss for the three month period ending June 30, 2012 was $911,694 compared to $455,012 in the comparable period of 2011.
