Year over Year Quarterly Revenues Increased 12% and Operating Income Increased 180%; Generated $1.3 Million of Free Cash Flow During the First Nine Months of 2012; The Company Recorded a Non-Recurring Charge of $0.45 Million Due to a Tax Ruling

RA'ANANA, Israel, November 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

MTS - Mer Telemanagement Solutions Ltd. (Nasdaq Capital Market: MTSL), a global provider of MVNE services and telecommunications expense management (TEM) services and solutions, today announced its financial results for the third quarter of 2012.

Revenues for the third quarter of 2012 were $3.4 million, compared with $3.0 million in revenues during the same quarter last year and revenues of $3.3 million in the second quarter of 2012. The Company's operating profit was $692,000 in the third quarter of 2012 compared to an operating profit of $244,000 for the third quarter of 2011 and $517,000 in the second quarter of 2012. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding the non-recurring tax charge related to a court ruling, net income for the third quarter of 2012 was $691,000 or  $0.15 per diluted share, compared with net income of $226,000 or $0.05 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2011 and $460,000 or $0.10 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2012. Net income for the third quarter, after a $446,000 non-recurring tax charge, was $245,000  or $0.05 per diluted share, compared with net income of $226,000 or $0.05 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2011 and $460,000 or $0.10 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2012.

Revenues for the nine months period ended September 30, 2012 were $9.6 million, compared with $8.8 million for the comparable period in 2011. The Company's operating profit was $1.5 million for the nine months period ended September 30, 2012 compared to an operating profit of $439,000 for the same period last year. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding the non-recurring tax charge related to the court ruling, net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $1.5 million or  $0.32 per diluted share, compared with net income of $588,000 or $0.13 per diluted share in the comparable period of 2011. Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $1.0 million or $0.22 per diluted share, compared with net income of $588,000 or $0.13 per diluted share in the comparable period in 2011.

Net income for the third quarter and for the nine months period ending September 30, 2012 was negatively affected by a non-recurring tax charge of approximately $446,000, as a result of a court ruling relating to the Company's appeal of a tax ruling of the Israeli tax authorities that was issued with respect to the 1997 to 1999 period. The Company has not as yet received an assessment from the tax authorities.

As of September 30, 2012, we had cash and marketable securities of $4.6 million as compared to $3.4 million as at December 31, 2011. During the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 we had positive operating cash flow of $1.3 million, as compared to positive operating cash flow of $800,000 during the nine month period ended September 30, 2011.

"Our third quarter results represent continued improvements in our financial results and indicators as a result of our efforts to develop our Mobile Virtual Network Enabler (MVNE) activity and the Telecom Expense Management opportunities through partners, new customer acquisitions and expanding our existing customer base" said Eytan Bar, CEO of MTS.

"As we previously announced, we extended our largest existing MVNO services contract, with minimum revenues of $3.6 million during 2013. In addition, following last quarter's announcement that we signed a new managed service agreement, we recently were able to successfully launch our MVNE service with this new MVNO in the US. The Company sees other opportunities in this market and we are working diligently to turn them into new contracts. We are looking forward to improving both our top and bottom line performance," concluded Mr. Bar.

One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
Cloudian, Inc., the leading provider of hybrid cloud storage solutions, today announced availability of Cloudian HyperStore 5.1 software. HyperStore 5.1 is an enhanced Amazon S3-compliant, plug-and-play hybrid cloud software solution that now features full Apache Hadoop integration. Enterprises can now transform big data into smart data by running Hadoop analytics on HyperStore software and appliances. This in-place analytics, with no need to offload data to other systems for Hadoop analyses, enables customers to derive meaningful business intelligence from their data quickly, efficiently and ...
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...

When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data they generate about customer usage and product performance to deliver extremely compelling and reliabl...
