For the three months ended June 30, 2016, we reported revenues of $15.2 million, a decrease of 3% when compared to $15.6 million reported in the second quarter of 2015. The addition of $3.1 million of new recurring service revenue contracts was offset by reductions of approximately $1.8 million due to volume reductions and terminated services. Equipment revenues in the second quarter were $0.9 million compared to approximately $2.7 million in the second quarter of 2015.

Cost of revenue was $12.1 million, compared to $13.5 million in 2015. The Company incurred approximately $0.1 million in additional staffing costs, including contract labor, and approximately $0.1 million in additional service and supply costs, primarily as a result of new customers.  Equipment costs decreased by approximately $1.6 million, largely as a result of the decrease in equipment revenues.  Gross profit for the second quarter of 2016 was $3.1 million, or 20% of revenues, compared to $2.1 million or 14% of revenues, for the same period in 2015. The increase in gross margin is due to the maturation of previously announced large contracts.

Sales and marketing expenses decreased by 10% due to decreased marketing spend when compared to the same period in 2015. General and administrative expenses decreased 14% to $1.6 million.
