NASHUA, N.H., November 12, 2014 – SMTP, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMTP), a global provider of marketing technologies and email delivery services, today reported its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2014.
- Third quarter revenues of $1.63 million, up 11% from $1.47 million in the third quarter of 2013
- Completed acquisitions of SharpSpring and GraphicMail
- SharpSpring launched the first marketing automation solution featuring fully integrated call tracking, web tracking and CRM capabilities
- Appointed Edward Lawton as Chief Financial Officer
“During the third quarter, we made significant progress in our plan to expand beyond our core email delivery capabilities. By acquiring SharpSpring and GraphicMail we’ve transformed ourselves into an integrated marketing solutions provider for campaign management, automation, delivery and analytics,” said Jonathan Strimling, CEO of SMTP, Inc. “The ability to offer a robust suite of products represents a real game-changer for SMTP, allowing us to address a much larger segment of the market and to effectively challenge the largest competitors in the industry.”
“Over the coming months we will complete the integration of these acquisitions. During this time we will accelerate our investment in product development, sales and marketing. At the same time, we expect to eliminate certain operational redundancies, such as consolidating the delivery infrastructure of all three companies onto a unified platform. Overall, we are excited about the direction of the business and believe we are well-positioned to accelerate growth,” concluded Mr. Strimling.
For the third quarter ended September 30, 2014, revenues were $1.63 million, up 11% from $1.47 million in the third quarter of 2013. Net loss for the third quarter of 2014 was $98,000 or $0.02 per fully diluted share, compared to net income of $320,000, or $0.10 per fully diluted share, for the same period last year. The decline was primarily due to increases in operating expenses related to corporate development and the acquisitions of SharpSpring and GraphicMail. In addition, the Company also strengthened its management team and invested in new resources to support the future growth of the business.
Gross profit in the third quarter of 2014 was $1.29 million, compared to $1.21 million in the same period last year.
Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2014 was $360,000, compared to $708,000 in the third quarter of 2013.
Cash at the end of the third quarter of 2014 was $5.9 million compared to $11.5 million at the end of the second quarter of 2014. The decrease in cash was due primarily to the acquisition of SharpSpring during the quarter.
