Revenue was $6.1 million for the third quarter of 2012, which was an increase of 12% from revenue of $5.4 million for the third quarter of 2011. Revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, was $17.2 million, compared with $15.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011, representing a 9% increase.
This revenue performance resulted from continued sales strength in the Company’s EFT Server products as a whole combined with increased maintenance and support (M&S) contract renewal sales across the majority of its product lines. The Company’s deferred revenue, plus contractual agreements under which revenue will be earned in future periods, grew to $10.3 million at September 30, 2012 from $8.2 million at September 30, 2011, an increase of 25%.
The Company reported a net loss of $2.7 million, or ($0.15) per share, in the third quarter of 2012, compared with net income of $611,000, or $0.03 per share, in the same quarter last year. The net loss for the third quarter of 2012 includes a $3.3 million, non-cash impairment charge related to the Company’s investment in and notes receivable from CoreTrace Corporation, which is an infrequent item. Excluding this non-cash impairment charge, on a non-GAAP basis, the Company would have reported net income for the third quarter of 2012 of $215,000 or $0.01 per share. A reconciliation between results on a GAAP basis with and a non-GAAP basis without this non-cash impairment charge will appear in the Company’s Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.Adjusted EBITDA Excluding Infrequent Items was $1.1 million for the third quarter of 2012 compared with $980,000 for the same period in 2011.
