HOUSTON, May 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Spine Injury Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB:SPIN), a technology-driven, medical service, and healthcare solution and financing company servicing the multi-billion dollar spine injury sector, today announces Financial Results for Q1 2017. The company has also scheduled an interactive video Investor conference call for Today, Monday May 25, 2017 at 4:20 p.m. (EST) to discuss the Company's financial results for Q1, 2017. We plan to discuss the new Nationwide Affiliate Expansion Roll-out for its core Personal Injury Case funding along with the current marketing status of its patented Quad Video HALO™ v.3.0, Shareholders Question & Answers will follow.
Dr. William Donovan, Chairman/CEO Commented; “Earlier this year, management made the decision to focus this year on expanding our profitable core business model of funding Spinal Injury medical procedures through our affiliates. This model that has generated over 8,500 procedures over seven years, a gross return of some $16.5 million cash collected while awaiting additional settlement, in total creating a favorable return of approximately 150%. This strategy requires a branded, standardized and scalable program for expansion. As reported on YE 16 call, such a major step was not going to happen overnight. Since that time, a lot has been accomplished, both from standardizing documentation to include compiling Affiliate Operations Manual and legal affiliate agreements. Donovan went on to say, “Around the time of the last conference call, the Company announced the soon opening of a new Affiliate Center in Lubbock Texas at the suggestion of one of Texas’ largest personal injury law firms. Though the announcement was preliminary and had little detail, the local Lubbock newspaper picked up on the announcement attracting other Doctors and local law firms who had heard of SPIN and its Quad Video HALO™ and already are referring patients. Though such a short time, more than a dozen Lubbock patients have already been referred. With response such as we have witnessed in Lubbock, the Company has set a target to add as many as ten to twelve Affiliates over the next 18 months. It is not unrealistic to assume that a goal of 25 Spinal Procedures a month after six to twelve months is achievable. Now with the groundwork laid for this expansion, we think the time is right to consider adding a top level executive as Chief Operating Officer position to assist in development. I invite all interested parties to attend our Q1 2017 Interactive Video Conference Call or view its replay which will be out by tomorrow morning.”
Results of Operations
For the Quarter ended March 31, 2017.
Comparison of the three month period ended March 31, 2017 with the three month period ended March 31, 2016.
We recorded $831,320, in gross revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2017, offset by $330,157 of the expected settlement discount resulting in net revenue of $501,163. For the same period in 2016, gross revenue was $1,162,621, offset by $495,357 of expected settlement discount, resulting in net revenue of $667,264. Revenue was negatively affected by the closing of the San Antonio affiliate in 2016. For the three months ended March 31, 2017, we managed three spine injury diagnostic centers: Houston, Texas; Tyler, Texas and Odessa, Texas. Lubbock, Texas will become active in the second quarter of 2017. Service cost was $156,804 for the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to $228,310 for the same period in 2016.
During the three months ended March 31, 2017, we incurred $382,028 of operating, general and administrative expenses compared to $366,513 for the same period in 2016. Operating, general and administrative expenses were higher for the 2017 quarter compared to 2016 primarily because of an increase in consulting fees, payroll expenses, website planning fees, and traveling expenses totaling approximately $77,000, coupled with reductions in bad debt expense, legal fees, rent, and other expenses of $61,000. The higher consulting costs for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 were mostly incurred in connection with the expansion of our Affiliate Program and marketing of the QVH. There were no research and development costs during the quarter ended March 31, 2017 as compared to $6,149 in 2016. We also experienced a decrease of $63,692 in non-cash operating charges from $110,519 for the three months ended March 31, 2016 to $46,827 for the three months ended March 31, 2017.
As a result of the foregoing, we had net loss of $49,389 or $.002 per share for the three months ended March 31, 2017, compared to $53,159, $.002 of net income for the three months ended March 31, 2016.
