Published: Apr 08, 2011

HOUSTON, April 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Spine Pain Management, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: SPIN), through its Chief Executive Officer, William F. Donovan, M.D., is pleased to report financial results for the year ending December 31, 2010. This year's report covers the first full year of operations where results were totally derived from SPIN's new business model put into operation in August 2009. For 2010, net revenue was $3,389,581, and net income was $1,101,550 or $.06 per share. For 2009, net revenue was $540,505, and there was a net loss of $720,526 or $.05 per share.

The company recorded $3,389,581 in net revenues with $1,425,399 in costs of services and gross profit of $1,964,182 for the year ended December 31, 2010. For the same period in 2009, the company recorded $540,505 in net revenues with $349,400 in costs of services and gross profit of $191,105. These increases are directly attributable to revenues generated from the company's spine injury diagnostic centers in Houston and McAllen, Texas.

The company recognizes revenue by reference to "net revenue," which is gross amounts billed using CPT (Current Procedural Terminology) codes less account discounts that are expected to result when individual cases are ultimately settled. Accordingly, the company had gross revenues of $6,528,194 with net revenues of $3,389,581 for the year ended December 31, 2010, versus gross revenues of $982,736 with net revenues of $540,505 for the year ended December 31, 2009.

During the twelve month period ended December 31, 2010, the company's operations focused on continued development of its spine injury diagnostic business in the Houston area and opening its second spine injury diagnostic center in McAllen, Texas in June 2010. During the twelve month period ended December 31, 2009, the company's operations focused on developing its spine injury diagnostic business and opening its first spine injury diagnostic center in Houston, Texas in August 2009.

Dr. Donovan stated: "Since the operational opening of our first clinic in August of 2009, we have now completed six profitable quarters, and by year end, our total of either settled or current cases has grown to over 700. As can be seen by the recently announced opening of our first out of state clinic in Florida, we feel that systems are now in place for a rapid acceleration in future growth."

New Center Growth Expected To Accelerate

As an advocate for accident victims, SPIN is a medical marketing, management, billing and collection company. SPIN bills for its services with expectation that payment may take an extended period of time and may be settled at a reduced amount on a case by case basis. Now due to a combination of a larger growing case base and seasoned cases paying off, internal cash flow is increasing.

To date, most of the company's growth has been funded by a combination of funding from management, a small amount of outside debt and growing organic cash flow. As cash flow increases, the company's ability to add clinics at a faster pace is also anticipated to increase. The company may, however, still need additional cash resources to accelerate its growth. Management prefers to avoid equity financing since it believes the company's stock is considerably undervalued based on the company's track record of growth in both revenues and net income. With this in mind, various outside debt options are now being investigated. Depending on the availability of adequate funding, the company has targeted multiple new centers that could be added by year end.
