    For the twelve months ended December 31, 2013
    For the twelve months ended December 31, 2013, the company reported revenues of $43.0 million, an increase of 21% when compared to $35.6 million in the same period in 2012. Recurring service revenues increased 22% from nine new contracts implemented in 2012 and 2013 and expansion of services with existing customers.

    Cost of revenue was $35.3 million, an increase of 14% compared to $31.0 million in 2012. The increase in the cost of revenues is attributed primarily to staffing and service costs to support the new and expanded recurring service contracts. Gross profit for the twelve months of 2013 was $7.7 million, or 18% of revenues, compared to $4.6 million or 13% for the same period of 2012. The gross margin improvement was a result of more contracts moving beyond the initial implementation phase, which require more upfront investment.

    Operating expenses for 2013 were $5.9 million, a decrease of 6% from $6.3 million in 2012. Sales and marketing expenses fell by 19% due to the termination of a joint marketing agreement with a channel partner in 2013. General and administrative expenses increased 4% to $3.8 million due to additional staffing to handle the increase in transaction volume. The Company generated $1.8 million of operating income in 2013 compared to an operating loss of $1.6 million in 2012.

    Net income for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 was $1.3 million, or $0.06 fully diluted earnings per share, compared to a net loss of $2.4 million or $0.12 fully diluted loss per share, in the same period of 2012. The weighted average diluted shares outstanding increased to 22.8 million shares.

    After excluding charges of $576,000 related to stock-based compensation and $190,000 in charges related to stock granted for marketing activities, non-GAAP measure of adjusted income from operations for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 was $2.5 million or 6% of revenue compared to a loss of $759,000 or (2%) of revenue after excluding charges of $391,000 related to stock-based compensation and $480,000 in charges related to stock granted for marketing and consulting activities in the same period of 2012.

    At December 31, 2013, the Company had $4.7 million of cash and cash equivalents, up $2.5 million from the same period a year ago. Cash provided by operating activities amounted to $2.6 million compared to $30,000 of cash used for operating activities during the same period in 2012. Working capital improved to $254,000 at December 31, 2013 compared to -$661,000 at December 31, 2012.

    Paul Anthony, CFO of CynergisTek, stated: “We are pleased with the steady improvements in our cash flows and margins over the past five quarters. This reflects additions of recurring revenues from new and existing contracts and excellent cost controls. While we expect to incur higher costs at the start of our engagements with new customers as well as making additional investments in our business, we are confident in reaching our long term margin objectives.”
