PHOENIX, Aug. 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- QuoteMedia, Inc. (OTCQB:QMCI), a leading provider of market data and cloud-based applications, announced financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2013. These results reflect second quarter revenue of $2,380,714, down from $2,476,556 in the comparative period in 2012. This represents a decrease of 4% ($95,842).
"Our decrease in revenue is partly due to the expiration of a large non-cash barter arrangement on June 30, 2012. In the first half of 2012, pursuant to this arrangement, we recorded revenue of $90,000 per quarter, for providing portfolio management services to a major media client in exchange for advertising credits. So while our top line revenue no longer includes this $90,000 in barter revenue, we are also no longer incurring the offsetting quarterly $90,000 advertising expense. Therefore, the expiration of this non-cash barter arrangement has had no impact on our bottom line or cash flow.
"Also, as we indicated earlier this year, one of our larger clients, Penson Worldwide Inc., filed for Chapter 11 protection in January," said Keith Guelpa, President of QuoteMedia, Inc. "The loss of revenue from the Penson Worldwide Inc. contract and its affiliate companies has had a large negative impact on our revenue, however we have been very successful in adding new clients and growing existing relationships to help offset the loss of this major client.
"Although the Penson bankruptcy has been a setback, we are excited by new product development that is nearing completion, and the new partnerships that we are establishing."
