Stocks in this article: ECTY

SAN FRANCISCO, May 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ECOtality, Inc. (Nasdaq:ECTY), a leader in clean electric transportation technologies, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013.

"Our first quarter results reflect continued installations of our prevalent and growing Blink® network," stated Ravi Brar, ECOtality's President and Chief Executive Officer. "We are on track to complete the commitments under the EV Project by the end of this year, and have now focused our attention on our next stage of growth. Our Blink, Minit-Charger and eTec Labs businesses each provide substantial opportunities supported by positive trends in the commercial, residential and industrial EV markets. Our goal is to promote the use of clean energy technology to best serve our customers while simultaneously cultivating shareholder value as we continue our transition and further build our business."

First Quarter 2013 Financial Results Summary

Revenue in the first quarter of 2013 increased 16% to $15.9 million from $13.7 million in the first quarter of 2012. The increase in revenue was largely attributed to the continued roll out of ECOtality's Blink network of charging stations, continued execution on the EV Project, and increased sales of our industrial products. Revenue in the first quarter of 2012 includes $2.6 million in non-recurring license revenue resulting from the March 2012 ABB software license transaction.

Sales and marketing expenses were $1.2 million for both the first quarter of 2013 and 2012. General and administrative expenses in the first quarter of 2013 were $4.8 million, compared with $4.9 million in the first quarter of 2012.

Net loss for the first quarter of 2013 was $(0.6) million, or $(0.02) per basic and diluted share, compared with net income of $1.2 million, or $0.04 per basic and diluted share, in the same year-ago quarter. Net income for the first quarter of 2012 includes non-recurring income generated by the realization of $2.6 million in license revenue and $2.4 million in other income related to the March 2012 ABB software license transaction. The resulting sequential decrease in first quarter 2013 earnings was significantly lessened by improved gross profit resulting from increased product and service revenues realized in the first quarter of 2013. Combined cash, restricted cash and cash equivalents at March 31, 2013 totaled $3.6 million.
