Stocks in this article: ECTY

SAN FRANCISCO, April 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ECOtality, Inc. (Nasdaq:ECTY), a leader in clean electric transportation technologies, today reported results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2012.

"Our strong financial performance for the year reflects the health of the company and our continued execution upon our business model," stated Ravi Brar, ECOtality's President and Chief Executive Officer. "We have established three complementary lines of business – Blink®, Minit-Charger and eTec Labs – that provide us with a stable, diversified and expanding revenue base. 2012 was marked by substantial growth as we more than doubled the size of the Blink network, validated our business model with the introduction of access fees, and successfully executed upon the objectives of the EV Project. We ended the year with more than 10,000 Blink charging stations and 55 DC fast chargers installed making ECOtality the nation's largest DC charging network."

Q4 and Full Year 2012 Financial Results Summary

Revenue in the fourth quarter of 2012 increased 60% to $13.6 million from $8.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Revenue for the full year of 2012 increased 93% to a record $54.7 million, compared to $28.4 million in 2011. The increases in revenue were largely attributed to the continued roll out of ECOtality's Blink network of charging stations.

Sales and marketing expenses in the fourth quarter of 2012 were $1.1 million, compared to $1.0 million in the same year-ago quarter. Sales and marketing expenses for the full year of 2012 totaled $4.6 million, compared to $3.3 million in 2011, with the increase primarily due to promoting the sale of chargers to commercial hosts and industrial operations, and securing Blink Network membership to EV drivers.

General and administrative expenses in the fourth quarter of 2012 decreased to $4.5 million from $4.8 million in the same year-ago quarter. General and administrative expenses for the full year of 2012 were $20.3 million, compared to $17.0 million in 2011. The annual increase in general and administrative expenses was primarily due to an increase in the company's professional services and incremental headcount.
