Wednesday, November 21, 2012 5:00 PM


MARKHAM, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 21, 2012) - VIQ Solutions Inc. ("VIQ Solutions" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:VQS), a world leader in computer-based digital audio and video capture and management, today reported its financial results for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2012. Results are reported in Canadian dollars and are prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS").

"After two relatively slow quarters for the computer products and services industry, we have started to see a resurgence in business activity in the global market due to the increased market demand for digital recording in various market verticals including the medical, insurance, law enforcement, military and transportation industries," said David Outhwaite, President and Chief Executive Officer of VIQ Solutions. "Our pipeline of opportunities continues to grow on a global basis in the digital media capture and management industry and we are working to convert these market opportunities into significant contract wins."

Financial Highlights

  • Revenue was $4.0 million and $11.6 million for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2012 as compared to $3.7 million and $11.9 million for the same periods in 2011;

  • Revenue from our transcription and recording services business unit was $3.5 million and $10.0 million for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2012, as compared to $3.0 million and $8.9 million for the same periods in 2011 representing an increase of 17% and 13% respectively, due to an increase in business activity from both of our transcription businesses;

  • Selling and administrative expenses were $1.4 million and $4.3 million for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2012 as compared to $1.4 million and $4.1 million for the same periods in 2011 as the Corporation continues to focus its selling efforts on global enterprise software contracts;

  • EBITDA1 for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2012 was $40,789 and $25,090 as compared to $1,839 and $911,982 for the same periods in 2011;

  • Net loss for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2012 was $24,282 and $156,793 as compared to $89,771 and a net income of $603,374 for the same periods in 2011; and

  • Cash flow used in operating activities was $53,238 and $48,416 for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2012 as compared to $254,825 and an inflow of $545,016 for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2011.

Notes

1. EBITDA is a non-IFRS earnings measure which does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to EBITDA presented by other companies. EBITDA represents earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. This measure is important to management since it is used by potential investors to evaluate the Corporation's operating performance and ability to incur and service debt, and as a valuation metric. Investors are cautioned that this non-IFRS financial measure should not be construed as an alternative to other measures of financial performance calculated in accordance with IFRS.
