Cortex Business Solutions Reports Q1 F2016 Financial Results

CALGARY, ALBERTA — (Marketwired) — 12/08/15 — Cortex Business Solutions Inc. (TSX VENTURE: CBX)(OTCQX: CTPNF), the online network helping companies connect and interact with each other to transmit documents and grow their businesses, today announces its Q1 F2016 results.

Joel Leetzow, President and CEO commented, “The Company took an important first step in fiscal 2015, reducing staffing costs to be more in line with revenue. I had asked that you stand by to witness the actual results of these decisions as they materialize over fiscal 2016. The three months ended October 31, 2015 (“Q1 F2016”) is a testament to the actions taken and the results to the bottom line. I think everyone will be as excited to see the results as we are sharing them.

I also made reference to the hard work we had been doing to improve the relationships with our workflow partner network; including expansion into new verticals, which was not previously successful. The investment in a dedicated Business Development Executive whose focus is on our partner channel has resulted in an increased pipeline from our existing partners. With the solidifying of these relationships, our clients receive better customer service from our partners, additional value add from the product bundles and a lower cost to implement.

There is now a full sales pipeline of leads to work on with our channel partners. Even with the reduction in the size of our sales team; the number of potential new customers remains steady. It–s an exciting time to be involved with Cortex. I am proud of the results that we have achieved together in a very short time. I can feel the momentum building across our customers, our staff, our partners and our shareholders.”

Q1 F2016 Highlights:

During the Q1 F2016 there were some significant developments as highlighted below:


Total revenue remained flat at $2,627,272 for the three months ended October 31, 2015 compared to $2,631,647 during the quarter ended October 31 2014. Although the growth was flat year over year, this was expected. The Company made conscious cost-cutting decisions; knowing these could impact revenue growth in the short term.
