SAN ANTONIO, Texas, Aug. 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Payment Data Systems, Inc. (OTCBB:PYDS) an integrated electronic payments solutions provider, today announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2013. Revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 were $930,830 as compared to $1,469,702 for the same period in the prior year due to lower transaction volumes in echeck processing. While the Company's credit card and debit card processing transactions were at the highest volume it has ever experienced in any quarter to date, the Company experienced lower ACH transaction volumes and prepaid card volumes for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, which, ultimately, resulted in reduced revenue.

The Company reported a net loss for the quarter ended June 31, 2013 of $266,484 as compared to net income of $104,306 for the same period in the prior year. Highlights for the second quarter of 2013 include:

- Cash and cash equivalents grew to $2,349,675 in the second quarter of 2013 from $1,896,487 in the second quarter of 2012.
- Working capital improved to $450,645 in the second quarter of 2013 as compared to working capital of $141,134 in the second quarter of 2012.
- Total transaction dollar volume processed exceeded sixty-six million dollars for the second quarter of 2013.
Mr. Long continued, "Also during the second quarter, we continued to add redundancy and operational upgrades to our national data center. This activity has been very important in order to maintain our leading position and certification with our sponsor banks and our customers. We also invested in the development of an innovative product line to allow financial institutions to offer turn-key prepaid card programs that allow their respective customers to upload personal photos to the image on the front of the card. These products which include gift cards, corporate incentive pre-paid, general purpose reloadable pre-paid, and payroll cards. All products have been well received and all banks to whom we have presented the products indicate they are preparing their 2014 budgets for implementation planned to begin in early 2014. Additionally, based on current discussions with both banks and potential customers, we anticipate the restoration of a significant portion of our echeck revenue by late 3rd quarter of 2013 carrying us into 4th quarter, which should lead to our return to quarterly income generation."
