Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2010 Operating Results:
Roomlinx' reported revenues for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ending December 31, 2010 were $1,838,741 and $4,495,196 respectively. This is an improvement of 136% over the fourth quarter of 2009 and an annual improvement of 84%. 74% of the annual increase is attributable to increased installations, hardware sales, and recurring revenue streams of their media and entertainment products, and 26% is attributable to the revenue streams acquired from Canadian Communications, LLC.
Roomlinx' gross profits for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ending December 31, 2010 were $403,679 and $1,065,495 respectively. This is an improvement of 12% over the fourth quarter of 2009, and an annual improvement of 22%. 80% of the annual increase is attributable to the acquisition of Canadian Communications and 20% is due to increased media and entertainment revenues, partially offset by increased cost of goods sold. Their gross profit margins for 2009 and 2010 were 36% and 24% respectively. This decrease is primarily due to a large hardware sale in 2010 that had a margin of approximately 5%.
Net loss for fourth quarter and fiscal year ending December 31, 2010 was $183,870 and $1,268,898 respectively, compared to a net loss of $171,675 and $2,816,801 for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2009 respectively. This is an annual improvement of 54% over 2009. A decrease in derivative expenses and an increase in revenue, offset by an increase in operating expenses, are prime factors for this improvement.
