First Quarter 2013 Financial Results
- Revenue was $8.0 million, compared to $9.8 million in the first quarter of 2012. The decrease was attributable primarily to the timing of closing industrial vehicle management business in the U.S. and a shortfall of revenue from Europe, reflecting the economic climate in that region.
- Recurring revenue was $4.4 million, up 4% from $4.2 million in the first quarter a year ago.
- Gross margin was 48%, compared to 50% in the first quarter of 2012. The decrease was attributable primarily to a higher contribution of revenue from channel partners.
- Selling, general and administrative expenses and research and development expenditures of $5.5 million and $1.1 million, respectively, were flat compared to $5.6 million and $1.1 million, respectively, in the first quarter of 2012.
