ROCHESTER, N.Y., May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- VirtualScopics, Inc. (NASDAQ: VSCP), a leading provider of quantitative imaging, today announced revenues of $2,532,587 for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 compared to $3,702,159 for the quarter ended March 31, 2012. Net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2013 was $1,112,948 compared to a net loss of $613,544 for the three months ended March 31, 2012.
Other first quarter ended March 31, 2013 results were:
Jeff Markin, president and chief executive officer of VirtualScopics stated, "While our revenues continue to suffer due to our low new project bookings in 2012 we are encouraged with our sales performance this year." He added, "Included in year to date project awards is the analysis of a significant Phase III study that will occur primarily in the second quarter. This project, along with others awarded to date, demonstrates a greater than 40% increase in awards and bookings over the same period in 2012." He continued, "While our softness in 2012 bookings will continue to impact near term revenue we are optimistic that the measures we put in place last year are now showing increased sales activity." He further stated, "Another example of our improving sales efforts is seen in the number of individual project awards in the first quarter of 2013 which has doubled versus those won during the same period of 2012. Additionally, over the last two quarters we were awarded more projects during a two-quarter period than at any time over the past two years." He concluded, "We believe this sales momentum will continue as the year progresses."
"In light of the continued softness in our top line, we remain diligent in monitoring our costs," stated Molly Henderson, chief business and financial officer of VirtualScopics. She added, "Although the analysis of the Phase III study is occurring later than we anticipated, we are confident in our ability to meet the condensed timeline and that we will see a positive impact to second quarter results." She continued, "In addition to the increase in the number of project awards in 2013 we are encouraged by the nature of the new business we have experienced." She further added, "Of note, seven of our year to date 2013 project awards came from new customers. This number exceeds the amount of new customers we secured in all of 2012." She stated, "Incoming requests for proposal (RFPs) remain strong as we received a greater number during the first quarter of 2013 than any previous first quarter in the company's history, which gives us confidence on the health of the industry and the interest in our services." She concluded, "While we are optimistic in our ability to translate these RFPs into awarded projects, we believe it's critical for us to ensure our cost structure is in line with our opportunities in order to minimize the amount of cash consumed during these times of fluctuating revenue."

The Company provides Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure to Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") regarding the Company's operational performance. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings less interest, taxes (if any), depreciation and amortization as further adjusted to exclude stock-based compensation expense and the loss/gain on derivative liabilities (mark to market adjustment for warrants). This financial measure excludes the impact of certain items and, therefore, has not been calculated in accordance with GAAP. The Company's method of calculating Adjusted EBITDA, however, may differ from methods used by other companies, and, as a result, Adjusted EBITDA measures disclosed herein may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies. The Company continues to provide information in accordance with GAAP, however, with the adoption of Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") 815-40 and the non-cash variable nature of stock-based compensation expense and their very substantial impact on the overall reported net income/loss, the Company believes it is also helpful for investors to receive additional information relating more specifically to the Company's operating results. Accordingly, the Company has presented Adjusted EBITDA which excludes the non-cash effects of ASC 815-40 and ASC 718 on its financial results. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA (a) to evaluate the Company's financial performance, (b) to set internal spending budgets, and (c) to measure operational profitability. In addition, investors have requested these non-GAAP financial measures as a means of providing consistent and comparable information with past reports of financial results. Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, the Company has provided a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, net income/(loss), below.
