MORRISVILLE, N.C., March 1, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Issuer Direct Corporation (OTCBB:ISDR), a market leader and innovator of unified regulatory, disclosure and compliance solutions, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2010. Additionally, the company anticipates filing its annual report including its financials in eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) with the Securities and Exchange Commission after market close today.

Highlights for the fourth quarter and year ended 2010 include:

  • Increased year over year revenue by 105%.
  • Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2010 increased by 53% as compared to the same period of 2009.
  • Non-GAAP net income increased by 27% during the year ended December 31, 2010 as compared to the same period of 2009.
  • More than tripled cash reserves for the period ended December 31, 2010 as compared to December 31, 2009.
  • In the fourth quarter of 2010, the company received signed contracts for XBRL related services for the 2011 reporting year of approximately $475,000.

Financial Results

For the year ended December 31, 2010, Issuer Direct achieved revenue of $3,860,513 compared to $1,885,232 during the year ended December 31, 2009. The increase in revenue during the year ended December 31, 2010 is primarily due to a large print and fulfillment project that was successfully executed in the mutual fund market during the second quarter of 2010 and the continued growth of the Company's transfer agent business.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2010, Issuer Direct achieved revenue of $491,791 compared to $320,455 in the same period of 2009. The increase in revenue during the fourth quarter of 2010 as compared to the same period of 2009 is primarily due to the continued growth of the Company's transfer agent and shareholder communication services.

Gross profit for the year ended December 31, 2010 was $1,351,097 compared to $1,098,599 for the same period of 2009. The Company reported net income of $429,406, or $0.02 per share, as compared to $274,174, or $0.02 per share for the same period of 2009. Net income for 2010 included a deferred tax benefit of $220,800 recognized in the fourth quarter of 2010.

"The fourth quarter of 2010 marked a strong finish to what was a record year for Issuer Direct in virtually all respects," said Chief Executive Officer, Brian Balbirnie. "The success of the Company's growth is due largely in part to our brands iFUND, iProxy and Direct Transfer expansion in the market. We should see continued success from these brands as well as our financial reporting business where we have a moderate XBRL tagging backlog that should be recognized throughout the coming fiscal year."

At the close of the fiscal 2010, Issuer Direct had a backlog of $475,000, a definite boost from backlog of $200,000 at the end of fiscal 2009. The backlog at the end of fiscal 2010 is directly attributable to the SEC's new regulatory requirement referred to as interactive data or XBRL. For the majority of public companies Issuer Direct serves, eXtensible Business Reporting Language or (XBRL) will be required during 2011 beginning in the quarter ended June 30. This will result in a significant increase in reporting revenues from financial tagging and consulting engagements. Also consistent with past practice, the Company's backlog figures are not intended to constitute the entire amount of revenue expected to be recognized in future periods, as the Company's business includes other revenue sources in addition to those quantified in its backlog.

Non-GAAP results

The Company reported non-GAAP net income during the year ended December 31, 2010 of $395,014, or $0.02 per share, as compared to non-GAAP net income of $311,507, or $0.02 per share in the same period of 2009. Please refer to the attached reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures referred to in this release to the most directly comparable GAAP measures.

Non-GAAP Information

Certain non-GAAP financial measures are included in this press release. In the calculation of these measures, the Company generally excludes certain items such as amortization and impairment of acquired intangibles, non-cash stock-based compensation charges, and unusual, non-recurring gains and charges. The Company believes that excluding such items provides investors and management with a representation of the Company's core operating performance and with information useful in assessing its prospects for the future and underlying trends in the Company's operating expenditures and continuing operations.
