Ottawa, Canada – August 17, 2012 - ZIM Corporation (OTCBB: ZIMCF), a provider of software products and services for the database and mobile markets: today announced its financial results for its first quarter ended June 30, 2012. All figures presented are calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) in the United States and presented in US dollars.
Revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 was $297,244, a decrease from the $571,316 for the same period last year. The decrease in revenue was primarily attributable to a large single customer software sale in 2012 coupled with project delays in our enterprise database software and consulting services business and a weakening Brazilian real.
Net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 was $64,150 or a basic and diluted loss per share of $0.001 compared to net income for the same period last year of $120,791 or a basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.001. The decrease in net income principally reflects the decrease in database software sales and foreign exchange fluctuations, with a partial offset provided by the Company’s continued curtailing of selling and general administrative expenses.
“We experienced a difficult quarter on the revenue front compared to the same quarter last year” said Dr. Michael Cowpland, President and CEO of Zim. “Last year we had a large software sale in Q1 that significantly boosted our normal Q1 performance and as previously disclosed we have experienced delays with two migration projects. For this quarter, I’m pleased that our order backlog has grown to $379,134 and that we continue to manage our costs with an overall 19% cost reduction for the quarter”
ZIM had cash and cash equivalents of $1,671,491 at June 30, 2012 as compared to cash and cash equivalents of $1,762,171 at March 31, 2012.
