Revenues up 51% over Q3 2011

SEATTLE, Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Lenco Mobile, Inc. (OTCQB: LNCM), a global provider of proprietary mobile messaging and mobile web solutions, announced results for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. Lenco reported revenues of $4.2 million, an increase of 51% from the third quarter of 2011.  

"We remain focused on completing the integration of iLoop Mobile and on implementing our global business strategy to provide a broad set of mobile solutions to large multinational entities.  Our third quarter results reflect those efforts," said Mathew Harris, CEO of Lenco.  "We see broad acceptance of our rich media MMS messaging solutions for both marketing and business process initiatives.  Those solutions have become key competitive differentiators for us and we expect that to continue to be important across our target markets," continued Harris.

Third Quarter Review

  • Revenue increased 51% year-over-year to $4.2 million.
  • Gross profit increased 37% year-over-year to $2.4 million.
  • Operating expenses increased 11% year-over-year to $4.6 million.  The increase was primarily due to increased sales, marketing and development expenses offset by a decrease in general and administrative costs.

"We're pleased with our progress and will continue to focus on execution in all aspects of the business as we grow both domestically and internationally," concluded Harris.
