HOUSTON, Nov. 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Spine Injury Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB:SPIN), a technology-driven, medical service, financing and healthcare solution company servicing the multi-billion dollar spine injury sector, reports Q3 2016 financial results and will hold an interactive video Investor conference call today Monday, November, 14, 2016, at 4:20 p.m. EST to discuss the Company's financial results for third quarter 2016 and provide an update on its current and future business initiatives.
Dr. Donovan, Chairman CEO stated, “While I am somewhat disappointed that no QVH sales were completed in Q3, our marketing team has made strides in formulating a strategic marketing plan which vastly increases the scope and size of our QVH product line. During the quarter, the Company presented its QVH v.3 and QVH Rx at several trade shows and workshops attracting some qualified leads. The biggest takeaway was feedback confirming that our new unique video documentation transparency QVH Rx system, which had its first operating room tests done earlier in the year, is engendering interest from administrators at hospitals, teaching hospitals/cadaver labs and ambulatory surgical centers for both its risk management aspects as well as education. Because of what we have learned, we feel we now have evidence of need for the Company to leverage our marketing efforts through national and regional commission only medical product rep firms.”
Donovan went on to say, “While net revenues may have declined a bit in Q3, net loss has also declined to its lowest level of the year, and our gross margin has increased to 68%, its best level ever. Additionally, Q3 cash collections of $575,000 was the highest of the year, bringing total cash received from our legacy business to over $15 million from inception.”
Results of Operations
Comparison of the three month period ended September 30, 2016 with the three month period ended September 30, 2015.
We recorded $782,276 in gross revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2016, offset by $323,318 of the expected settlement discount resulting in net revenue of $458,958. For the same period in 2015, gross revenue was $1,110,533, offset by $597,770 of the expected settlement discount, resulting in net revenue of $512,763. We ceased providing collection services to the San Antonio diagnostic center during the first quarter of 2016, and accordingly had no revenue in San Antonio for the three months ended September 30, 2016 versus the same quarter in 2015. This is the primary reason for the above decline in gross revenue between those two periods. Net revenue as a percentage of gross revenue increased to 58.7% for the three months ended September 30, 2016 from 46.2% for the three months ended September 30, 2015 due to a higher collection percentage in the 2016 quarter. We are currently providing technology and funding services to five spine injury diagnostic centers in the United States, which are located in Houston, Texas; Odessa, Texas; Tyler, Texas; El Paso, Texas; and Dallas, Texas.
Service cost was $146,314 for the three months ended September 30, 2016 compared to $221,557 for the same period in 2015. The decrease is due mainly to lower volume.
During the three months ended September 30, 2016, we incurred $459,126 of operating, general and administrative expenses compared with the $409,532 for the same period in 2015. The increase is attributable to increases in (i) travel costs of approximately $19,000, (ii) marketing costs of approximately $29,000, (iii) depreciation and amortization expense of approximately $3,000, (iv) payroll and benefit costs of approximately $10,000, (v) legal expenses of approximately $3,000 and (vi) office and operating expenses of $9,000, coupled with a decreases of (i) approximately $18,000 in consulting costs, and (ii) approximately $5,000 in subscriptions costs.
During the three months ended September 30, 2016, we incurred $18,862 of research and development expenses compared with $89,512 for the same period in 2015. The decrease is attributable to costs incurred during the three months ended September 30, 2015 for engineering and testing fees to verify the Quad Video Halo (“QVH”) meets certain standards. Our patented (Patent No. 9,084,577) technology meets UL compliance with specific immunity and emissions standards required by IEC 60601-1-2-2007.
As a result of the aforementioned, we had a net loss of $178,401 for the three months ended September 30, 2016, compared to a net loss of $219,674 for the three months ended September 30, 2015.
