Payment Data Systems (OTCBB:PYDS), an integrated electronic payments solutions provider, is providing guidance for Q3 2011. Michael Long, Chief Executive Officer of Payment Data Systems, said, “As our company matures I believe it is time for us to begin to provide more guidance related to future quarters. "In Quarter 3 of 2011, I am pleased to announce that we anticipate reaching the point of generating positive earnings. For the third quarter of 2011 we are anticipating sales of over one million dollars along with positive earnings that will be derived from operations. Several of our customers added in recent quarters have begun to process their anticipated larger volumes of payment transactions. Many of these new customers were implemented in late June with more added in early July. "We anticipate that July 2011 will historically be our best month in terms of net income, transaction volume processed and dollars processed. This momentum is being created through recurring revenue and we expect to build upon it the remainder of the year. Clearly, this is a very exciting time in the history of our company.” Q2 2011 earnings are anticipated being released on or about August 12, 2011. About Payment Data Systems, Inc.
