Fiscal Q1 2014 Operational Metrics

Management Commentary

“Cortex is committed to monetizing the investment it has made in its Procurement to Payment platform,” said Jim Barker, interim President and CEO. “The Company–s commercialization focus is increasingly directed toward product and market expansion while exploring complimentary verticals that benefit from Cortex–s portfolio of products and services.” The first quarter was the ninth consecutive quarter of increased recurring access and usage fees and we continue to exceed our goal of growing this number at 10% sequentially. These results were driven by continued robust growth in suppliers transacting on the network, strong growth in both the U.S. and Canadian markets, and the rollout of value-added services.

“As we move through 2015, we will continue to develop new products to further enhance the Cortex Network. In fact Field Ticket Mobile Approver is expected to be released during the fall of 2015. This product introduction is being driven by customer feedback and market demand. Cortex expects this product to continue to expand the growth opportunities of the network.”

Fiscal Q1 2015 Financial Results

Total revenue in Q1 F2015 increased 47% to $2.6 million compared to $1.8 million in Q1 F2014. The key growth driver was in the recurring access and usage revenue stream, which increased 47% as a result of increased billable suppliers on the network and increased billable transactions flowing through the network.

On a sequential basis, total revenue decreased 6% compared to $2.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2014 due to the completion of a large AP service initiative in the fourth quarter, which was classified within project management revenue. Recurring access and usage fees increased 15% to $2.4 million in the first quarter of 2015. This growth can be attributed to an increase in the number of suppliers transacting on the network.

Gross margin net of amortization increased significantly to 52% compared to 47% in the year-ago quarter and 38% in the fourth quarter of 2014.

Net loss in Q1 F2015 was $1.9 million or $(0.01) per diluted common share, compared to a net loss of $1.5 million or $(0.01) per diluted common share in Q1 F2014.

At October 31, 2014, cash totaled $8.6 million compared to $3.8 million at October 31, 2013. The company continues to carry no debt.
