Intermap Technologies Reports 2014 Second Quarter Financial Results

DENVER, Aug. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - (TSX: IMP) - Intermap Technologies Corporation ("Intermap" or the "Company") today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014. A conference call will be held tomorrow, August 12th, at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time to discuss the results.

All amounts in this news release are in United States dollars unless otherwise noted.

Intermap reported total revenue of $2.4 million for the second quarter of 2014, a 12% increase from the first quarter of the year. Second quarter revenue of $2.4 million is compared to $8.9 million in the same period of 2013. During the second quarter of last year, $7.6 million of mapping services revenue was recognized on a new $15.0 million contract that was announced earlier in the year. No similar sized contract was closed during the first six months of the current year, making up the majority of the variance between the current year and the prior year periods. Net loss for the second quarter of 2014 was $3.5 million, or ($0.04) per share, compared to a net profit of $170 thousand, or ($0.00) per share, for the second quarter of 2013. Second quarter adjusted EBITDA, a non IFRS financial measure, was a loss of $2.8 million, a decrease from an adjusted EBITDA profit of $2.2 million for the same period in 2013. Adjusted EBITDA excludes share-based compensation, gain or loss on the disposal of equipment, and gain or loss on foreign currency translation.

"Our continued focus during the quarter was the further development of our 3DBI® (3D business intelligence) software applications," said Todd Oseth, President & CEO of Intermap. "We're pleased to report that during the quarter we successfully introduced two new 3DBI software applications; InsitePro™ and GeoPro Server™. InsitePro is a Software-as-a Service ("SaaS") product built to analyze location specific risk caused by natural catastrophes. It is a powerful tool that gives users the ability to evaluate risk for locations one-by-one or thousands at a time via innovative risk models and analytics. GeoPro Server is the centerpiece of our Orion Platform®. It functions as a geospatial-data agnostic server deriving actionable answers from "big data". The application allows users (novice, or geospatial expert) to turn disparate geospatial data into simple to use information."

Mr. Oseth added, "Shortly after the introduction of InsitePro, we announced that a Top 10 Global Reinsurer had entered into an agreement with Intermap to license the application for use in a Latin American country. We see this as a significant endorsement for the application and we are optimistic that additional licenses will follow not only from this customer, but from other potential customers around the world."

"In addition to our progress on 3DBI software applications, we continue to progress towards the closing of a major international Orion Platform spatial data infrastructure contract," added Mr. Oseth. "The availability of our recently announced 3DBI software applications plays a pivotal role in winning Orion Platform projects. These projects are primarily government sourced and are inherently very complicated. They typically carry long sales cycles due to (i) the dollar magnitude of the contract, (ii) the individual country's political landscape, (iii) the timing of budgets, (iv) the multi-agency and multi-level government approval process, (v) the complexity of the project, and (vi) the funding mechanisms required for the project (i.e. banking syndicates). We remain optimistic that we will be able to announce the signing of one or more of these contracts before the end of the year, but due to the factors mentioned above, the actual timing is very difficult to predict."

Financial Review

Consolidated revenue for the second quarter of 2014 totaled $2.4 million and included (i) $0.1 million in mapping services, (ii) $0.2 million in professional services, (iii) $1.8 million in data licensing, and (iv) $0.3 million in 3DBI software licensing. For the same period in 2013, consolidated revenue totaled $8.9 million and included (i) $7.6 million in mapping services, (ii) $0.2 million in professional services, (iii) $0.7 million in data licensing, and (iv) $0.4 million in 3DBI software licensing. Contract backlog at the end of the quarter totaled $0.4 million.

For the second quarter of 2014, personnel expense was $3.1 million, compared to $3.2 million in the previous year. The decrease was primarily due to reduced commission expense consistent with decreased revenue recognized on a year-over-year basis.

For the second quarter of 2014, purchased services and materials expense was $1.5 million, compared to $2.7 million during the same period last year. The decrease in this category of expense is primarily due to project specific costs associated with airborne data collection efforts in the previous year with no similar work under contract in the current year. Purchased services and materials includes (i) aircraft related costs, including jet fuel, (ii) professional and consulting costs, (iii) third-party support services related to airborne data collection efforts, processing and editing of the Company's data collection efforts, and (iv) software expenses (including maintenance and support).

The cash position of the Company at June 30, 2014 (cash and cash equivalents) was $3.9 million, compared to $2.4 million at December 31, 2013. Amounts receivable and unbilled revenue at June 30, 2014 was $3.1 million, compared to $6.6 million at December 31, 2013. Working capital was negative $2.6 million at June 30, 2014, compared to positive $3.9 million at December 31, 2013 (see "Intermap Reader Advisory" below).

Second Quarter Business Highlights (Previously Announced)

  • Intermap announced the launch of InsitePro™, a SaaS based product built on its history of providing risk solutions worldwide. The application was purpose-built to visualize and analyze location-specific risk caused by natural catastrophes. It provides property and casualty carriers, insurance brokers, enterprise risk managers, and government agencies with a powerful tool to evaluate locations one-by-one, or thousands at a time via innovative risk models and analytics. InsitePro is the only risk management application that accesses Intermap's WorldFlood™ model, which forecasts uniform flood coverage anywhere in the world.

  • Intermap announced an agreement to license its InsitePro software application to a Top 10 Global Reinsurer for use in a specific Latin American country. InsitePro leverages Intermap's best-in-class NEXTMap® and NEXTMap World 30™ elevation data. Point-specific ground elevation allows users to go beyond flood models to better understand the risk of flood by determining heights above flood elevation, flow routes from rivers to buildings, and safer locations for new infrastructure and buildings. InsitePro can also display a customer's proprietary risk data or any available government data.

  • Intermap announced the commercial availability of GeoPro Server, a server purpose-built for turning big data into smart decisions. GeoPro Server allows users (novice and geospatial expert) to turn disparate geospatial data into simple to use information. The application can provide enterprises and governments with easy access to all of their geospatial and non-geospatial data via a web service or web portal without regard to the data's source or original file format. GeoPro Server offers a multi-touch display that allows users to control terabytes of data from a tablet or laptop.

  • Intermap was awarded a commercial third-party database license to use the Traffic Audit Bureau ("TAB") ratings in its AdPro® software. After successfully passing TAB's rigorous technical standards and audit committee, AdPro now provides access to the TAB Ratings Database. By leveraging standardized TAB ratings directly within AdPro, users can measure return on investment for their out-of-home campaigns utilizing a trusted ratings system similar to those used in TV and radio campaigns.

  • The Company announced a $1.0 million contract to provide digital elevation data and orthorectified radar imagery from its NEXTMap® database. The data will be used by the customer for geospatial related applications and the delivery of the data occurred during the second quarter 2014.

  • Intermap introduced its new Vice President of Sales, Jon Freeman. Mr. Freeman is a technology and sales veteran bringing twenty years of consistent sales production and executive management experience to the position along with a successful record for business development in a variety of software/high-tech industries. Mr. Freeman most recently served as Vice President Sales for Solarwinds/Confio Software Inc., a leading provider of software solutions delivering database, server, storage, and networking tools.

  • Intermap announced the appointment of David Sikes to its Board of Directors effective April 9, 2014. Mr. Sikes is a Principal for Exeter Consulting, specializing in consulting for technology start-up companies. He has held technical and executive roles in technology based companies throughout his entire career. He has also held key board positions with several technology companies including most recently ten years with an internet/Software-based/B-to-B marketing company in the automotive industry.

As of August 11, 2014, there were 91,782,665 common shares outstanding.

Important factors, including those discussed in the Company's regulatory filings (www.sedar.com) could cause actual results to differ from the company's expectations and those differences may be material.

Adjusted EBITDA is not a recognized performance measure under GAAP and does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS. The term EBITDA consists of net income (loss) and excludes interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is included as a supplemental disclosure because management believes that such measurement provides a better assessment of the Company's operations on a continuing basis by eliminating certain non-cash charges and charges that are nonrecurring. The most directly comparable measure to adjusted EBITDA calculated in accordance with IFRS is net income (loss).

There's Big Data, then there's really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, discussed how IoT, Big D...
The OpenStack cloud operating system includes Trove, a database abstraction layer. Rather than applications connecting directly to a specific type of database, they connect to Trove, which in turn connects to one or more specific databases. One target database is Postgres Plus Cloud Database, which includes its own RESTful API. Trove was originally developed around MySQL, whose interfaces are significantly less complicated than those of the Postgres cloud database. In his session at 16th Cloud...

There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies. To make things even more challenging, requirements are getting more sophisticated, and the standard paradigm of supporting historical analytics queries is often just one facet of what is needed. As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immed...
Enterprises are turning to the hybrid cloud to drive greater scalability and cost-effectiveness. But enterprises should beware as the definition of “policy” varies wildly. Some say it’s the ability to control the resources apps’ use or where the apps run. Others view policy as governing the permissions and delivering security. Policy is all of that and more. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Derek Collison, founder and CEO of Apcera, will: Explain what policy is; Show how policy should be arc...
There is little doubt that Big Data solutions will have an increasing role in the Enterprise IT mainstream over time. 8th International Big Data Expo, co-located with 17th International Cloud Expo - to be held November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA - has announced its Call for Papers is open.
