Payment Data Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: PYDS), an integrated electronic payments solutions provider, today announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2011.

Revenues increased to $768,359 for the second quarter of 2011 from $604,184 for the second quarter of 2010 due to higher transaction growth. The operating loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 was $169,084 compared to operating loss of $152,338 for the second quarter of 2010. Excluding the effect of non-cash expenses associated with stock-based compensation of $134,980 and depreciation expenses of $1,072, operating loss for the second quarter of 2011 was only $33,032, the majority of which was one-time consulting fees. Net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 was $238,481 from a net income of $55,174 for the second quarter of 2010 with the majority of the difference being a unrealized loss in marketable securities. Excluding the effect of non-cash expenses associated with stock-based compensation of $134,980 and depreciation expenses of $1,072 and the unrealized loss in marketable securities of $91,738, net loss for the second quarter of 2011 was $10,691.

Commenting on the results for the quarter, Michael R. Long, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Payment Data Systems, said, “Second quarter earnings were no surprise as they followed historical trends."

Long continued, “The real excitement for us is the upcoming quarter. Our previously announced guidance of exceeding $1,000,000 in sales and achieving profitability for the quarter remains firmly in place. The second quarter was focused on implementing a number of new merchants. The merchant acquiring segment of PDS continues to grow and we are now processing payments for over 450 churches and church organizations. Our prepaid card operation, FiCentive, is continuing to earn new corporate clients for its printed on-demand corporate card incentive programs with the conversion to our new bank virtually complete, and our ACH business is contributing greatly to our new trends.”
