Accelerize New Media, Inc. Reports Record Revenues & Profits in 2012
Company Achieves Full Year Profitability With Triple Digit Revenue Growth in FY 2012

NEWPORT BEACH, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/07/13 -- Accelerize New Media Inc. (OTCBB: ACLZ), owner and operator of Cake Marketing(www.cakemarketing.com), a highly scalable SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) platform providing a comprehensive and complete online tracking solution for advertisers -- from acquisition through conversion, today announced financial results for its fiscal year ended December 31, 2012.

"Growing industry demand for our innovative SaaS platform and capitalizing on the true power of our recurring revenue business model enabled Accelerize to achieve its first full year of profitability, with record revenues that grew 146% year over year," said Accelerize New Media Inc. Chairman and CEO Brian Ross. "Given the increased number of new clients and greater usage among existing clients, we fully expect this momentum to continue through 2013 as we continue to scale our business both domestically and internationally."

"Reaching profitability was an important milestone, providing validation for our business model and enabling us to prudently reinvest in R&D and build shareholder value," added Mr. Ross. "With advertisers demanding a measurable return on investment for their marketing initiatives, we are confident that the R&D investments we have made and continue to make will result in ongoing and significant market share gains as the industry embraces performance-based marketing."

Financial Highlights for FY 2012

  • Revenues: Total revenues increased 146% from $2,363,073 to $5,800,622 year over year, driven organically by a 117% increase in the average number of clients and a 13% increase in the average usage fees charged per client. We expect future revenues to be driven by ongoing organic growth, international expansion, and increased sales efforts.
  • Operating Income: Operating income reached $380,937, compared to an operating loss of $(853,881) year-over-year, due to higher revenues and contained expenses. We plan to continue managing our costs and scaling revenues to improve operating margins.
  • Net Income: Net income increased to $492,948, compared to a loss of $(1,177,095), during the prior year period, due to revenues that grew faster than expenses.
  • Cash Flow: Cash provided by operations increased to $166,059 compared to cash used in operations of $(648,137) a year ago. Approximately $933,034 was invested in research and development. We continued to increase our expenditures to support our additional customers and the scope of our activities, which increased our total operating expenses from $3,216,954 in 2011 to $5,419,685 in 2012. Free cash flow, which amounts to cash flows from operations less capital expenditures, totaled $124,289 for 2012.
