Second Quarter 2016 Results Reported For DATATRAK International, Inc.

CLEVELAND, Aug. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- DATATRAK International, Inc. (OTC Markets: DTRK), a leader in cloud-based, unified dClinical® technologies and related services for the clinical trials industry, today announced its operating results for the second quarter of 2016.

Second Quarter Highlights:

  • Revenue increase of 2% over same period in the prior year
  • Gross margin of 84% for Q2 2016 compared to 77% in Q2 2015
  • Reduction of 48% in SG&A spending Q2 2016 vs. Q2 2015
  • Net income from operations of $330,000 compared to a net loss from operations of $(1.4M) in Q2 2015
  • Continued growth in Enterprise partners
  • 90% of contracts include multiple products

"We are seeing the results of the entire company's focus on our clients," said Jim Bob Ward, President and CEO, DATATRAK. "The sales team continues to develop meaningful partnerships with our existing and new clients. We saw their efforts pay off in the second quarter with the addition of a new Enterprise partner. The operations team has focused on giving great support to our clients, resulting in revenue being converted from backlog. From a financial perspective, the restructuring has allowed us to dramatically reduce our spending with no operational impact to our customers. With the focus clearly on our clients, current and future, we are doing what we can do to help them reach their potential - first and always."

"DIA was a success again this year," said Scott DeMell, Vice President Sales, DATATRAK. "Rather than focus on big crowds and trade show entertainment, we spent more time talking with our customers about their business needs. This resulted in more substantive meetings with current and future clients. By using this opportunity to listen, we learned a lot about what customers need, how they want their solutions and services to support their trials; and we are putting it into action. The most exciting discussions centered on the response to our upcoming release of our new CTMS solution."

Tim Lyons, Vice President, Product Development and Operations commented on the new CTMS solution. "It's great to hear the feedback on our innovative CTMS. We are in the final stages of development and working toward a planned release near of end of Q3 2016. DATATRAK's focus remains the same as it has been from the start: Understanding how we can help our users gain meaningful insight into their trials, faster and easier. Our commitment is to our user's success."

Financial Highlights:

The Company's revenue increased 2% for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2015.  Revenue from contracts in backlog and revenue from new contract sales both contributed to the increase.  Direct costs decreased 30% to $381,000 in the quarter ended June 30, 2016 from $540,000 in the quarter ended June 30, 2015 due to lower employee costs. The Company's gross margin was 84% for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 compared to 77% for the quarter ended June 30, 2015.  SG&A expenses decreased by $1,515,000, or 48%, for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2015.  The decrease was primarily due to lower employee costs, including bonus, recruitment and travel.  The Company also cut spending for advertising, consulting, equipment and legal.  As a result, DATATRAK had income from operations for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 of $330,000 compared to a loss from operations of $(1,391,000) for the quarter ended June 30, 2015. 

DATATRAK's backlog at June 30, 2016 was $24.3 million compared to a backlog of $26.7 million at December 31, 2015, which is a 9% decrease. Backlog consists of future value from authorization letters to commence services, statements of work, technology and services agreements, change orders and other customer contracts, billed and unbilled.

All contracts are subject to possible delays or cancellation or can change in scope in a positive or negative direction. Therefore, current backlog is not necessarily indicative of the Company's future quarterly or annual revenue. Historically, backlog has been a poor predictor of the Company's short-term revenue.
