KIRKLAND, Wash., June 9, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CoroWare, Inc. (OTCBB:COWIE) today announced its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2011.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2011 ("the 2011 Period"), CoroWare ("the Company") reported revenues of $370,504 compared to revenues of $545,809 during the three-month period ended March 31, 2010 (the "2010 Period"). Revenues were lower than the previous quarter as customers continued to defer purchases of videoconferencing services, infrastructure and room systems; and delayed spending on software development services for billing integration, custom engineering, and IT consulting projects. Gross Revenues were depressed in January, but began recovering in February as deferred projects were approved.

Gross Profit was $108,190 (29.2% gross profit percentage) for the 2011 Period compared to $105,373 (19.3% gross profit percentage) for the 2010 Period. The improved gross profit percentage resulted from our increased focus on software development and program management services in new technology areas such as operational business intelligence.

Research and development was $45,739 for the 2011 Period compared to $0 in the 2010 Period. The increased research and development investment resulted from our software development and testing initiatives, including CoroCall Communications Cloud Service and CoroWare Billing Integration Framework for MetraTech and FreeSwitch.

Operating expenses were $458,514 during the 2011 Period compared to $262,741 during the 2010 Period. Sales and marketing were higher in the 2011 Period as the Company continued to invest in sales and marketing initiatives to help increase major account sales of CoroCall and CoroWare's telepresence product sales in the coming months. The increase in General and Administrative operating expenses was primarily attributable to the inclusion of SEC legal, document preparation, and filing fees.

Loss from operations was $350,324 during the 2011 Period compared to $157,368 in the 2010 Period. Total other income was $739,934 during the 2011 Period compared to $681,288 in the 2010 Period.
