MIAMI, Aug. 20, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Net Element International (Nasdaq:NETE), a technology-driven group specializing in electronic commerce and mobile payment processing, today announced financial results for its second-quarter ended June 30, 2013. Net Element International reported second-quarter net revenues of $5,615,719, which represents a significant increase over net revenues of $37,818 from the same period in the prior year as a result of completion of Unified Payments acquisition in the second-quarter of 2013. General & Administrative expenses for second-quarter 2013 were $3,807,913 as compared to General & Administrative expenses of $2,443,387 (as restated) one year previously, representing a 56 percent increase.

The increased loss was driven primarily by non-cash impairments, which were necessary to clean up company's financials and set a strong foundation for growth.
