CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 11/27/13 -- GINSMS Inc. (TSX VENTURE:GOK) has announced its financial results for the second quarter ended September 30, 2013.

PERFORMANCE HIGHLIGHTS FOR THE THREE AND SIX MONTHS ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2013:


--  The acquisition of Inphosoft Group Pte Ltd ("Inphosoft") was completed
    on September 28, 2012. GINSMS's income statement for the three and six
    months ended September 30, 2013 includes the operating results of
    Inphosoft Group Pte Ltd and its subsidiaries resulting in total revenue
    of $211,741 and $657,325 respectively, compared to $149,908 and $306,997
    for the corresponding three and six months in the previous year. 
--  Activities for the three-month and six-month period ended September 30,
    2013 resulted in a net loss of $832,129 and $1,314,120 respectively,
    including a non-realized exchange loss of $16,631 and exchange gain of
    $3,131 respectively and a non-cash charge to earnings of $308,902 and
    $599,451 respectively representing accretion on obligations related to
    the convertible debentures and promissory notes issued in connection
    with the acquisition of Inphosoft. For the three and six months ended
    September 30, 2012, the Company recorded a net loss of $425,148 and
    $473,183 respectively. 
--  EBITDA of negative $316,190 and $396,044 respectively for the three and
    six months ended September 30, 2013. This is an improvement of $82,919
    and $25,609, compared to EBITDA of negative $399,109 and $421,653
    respectively during the corresponding three and six months in the
    previous year. The lower negative EBITDA principally reflect much lower
    losses due to revenue contributed by the Inphosoft Group Pte Ltd and its
    subsidiaries. 
--  Volume of inter-SMS traffic for the three-month period ended September
    30, 2013 was down by 73.3% to 6,506,168 from the same period the
    previous year. When compared to the previous quarter ended June 30,
    2013, traffic improved by 17.4%. This downward trend in SMS traffic is
    largely caused by cellphone users migrating to mobile instant messaging
    ("MIM") applications and the removal of bundle fees in the new
    agreements signed with the mobile network operators that came into
    effect on the 1st March 2013. The slight improvement compared to
    previous quarter ended June 30, 2013 was due to return of traffic by one
    major customer. 
--  Liquidity deteriorated considerably with cash on hand of $445,513, down
    53.8% from March 31, 2013. Net current assets as at September 30, 2013
    were $286,274, compared to $797,995 as at March 31, 2013.

(1)The figures reported above are based on the consolidated financial      
statements of the Company which have been prepared in accordance with      
International Financial Reporting Standard.                                

Revenue for the 3 months and 6 months ended September 30, 2013 was $211,741 and $657,325 respectively, representing an increase of 41.2% and 114.2% respectively, compared to $149,908 and $306,997 during the corresponding periods the previous year. The increase is due to the inclusion for the revenue from Inphosoft in the consolidated statement of income as revenue from the Company's IOSMS activities, taken separately, declined by 74.4% and 79.6% for the 3 months and 6 months the previous year. The decline in the revenue generated from the IOSMS platform is due to the less favourable terms of the contracts signed with mobile network operators that came into effect on 1st March 2013 as well as a 73.3% drop in SMS traffic during the quarter ended September 30, 2013, compared to the corresponding quarter the previous year.

Revenue from Inphosoft for the six months aggregated $594,624 is broken down as follow: Professional Services - $349,651 (58.8%), License fees - $11,125 (1.9%), and Support and Maintenance (S&M) -$233,848 (39.3%).

The net loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 amounted to $832,129, compared to a loss of $425,148 during the same quarter the previous year. The loss for the second quarter this fiscal year includes a net foreign exchange loss of $16,631 and a non-cash charge to earnings of $308,902 representing accretion on obligations related to the convertible debentures and promissory notes issued in connection with the acquisition of Inphosoft.

EBITDA for the second quarter ended September 30, 2013 amounted to negative $316,190 while EBITDA for the corresponding period the previous year which showed a deficit of $399,109. These results underline an improved gross profit picture with gross income increasing by 34.3% to $111,051, but with a lower gross profit margins hence translate into a gross margin of 52.4%, compared to 55.2% during the corresponding quarter the previous year.

Other than lower revenue generated by the IOSMS platform and the impact the foreign exchange gain have had on the results of the Company for the 6 months ended September 30, 2013, the loss of $1,314,120 reported during the period reflects higher operating expenses albeit more than offset, as mentioned above, by a much higher gross income. With Inphosoft, salaries and wages jumped by 556.7% to $514,360, and general and administrative expenses are up 177.6% to $153,530.. However, consultancy fees decreased by 38.5% to $33,582 and professional fees decreased by 72.7% to $110,059. The decline in professional fees reflected the lower legal fees in particular following the completion of the acquisition at the end of the second quarter of the previous year. The consolidation of Inphosoft also resulted in higher amortization charges which amounted to $314,165, compared to $52,414 for the corresponding 6 months the previous year.
