Ottawa , Canada – July 29, 2014 - ZIM Corporation (OTCBB: ZIMCF), a provider of software products and services for the database and mobile markets: today announced its financial results for its fiscal year ended March 31, 2014. All figures presented are calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) in the United States and presented in US dollars.
Revenue for ongoing operations for the year ended March 31, 2014 was $1,271,427, a slight decrease from revenue of $1,310,481 for the year ended March 31, 2013. Net loss from ongoing operations for the year ended March 31, 2014 was $356,706 or a basic and diluted loss per share of $0.003, an increase from $192,115 for the year ended March 31, 2013, or a basic and diluted income per share of $0.002. The decline in revenue and increased loss is a direct result of delays in the completion of certain consulting projects, decreased enterprise software license revenue , a one-time impairment charge related to investments of $180,271 and, was offset by the increase in revenue from our mobile segment.
“Project delays resulted in a challenging year from a revenue perspective.” said Dr. Michael Cowpland, President and CEO of ZIM. “However, these delays were cleared in the second half of the year as a result of making significant progress with our South American projects. We’re entering fiscal 2015 with a backlog of over $300,000. Also, although we have taken an impairment charge on our investment, we anticipate that this investment will be beneficial in the future.”
During the quarter new contracts were signed resulting in an increased backorder of almost $400,000 USD.
