Speedemissions, Inc. Reports Results for Third Quarter

ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/21/12 -- Speedemissions, Inc. (OTCBB: SPMI), a leading vehicle emissions testing and safety inspections company with stores in Atlanta, Houston, St. Louis and Salt Lake City, today announced its financial results for the third quarter ending 9/30/2012.

Q3 2012:

  • Revenue decreased (5.4%) or $117K to $2,047,458 for the quarter versus $2,164,562 in 2011. Along with a slight drop in same store sales, a decrease in revenue was attributed to promotional discount programs which resulted in increased sales discounts of $75,476 over the prior year period.

  • Same store operating expenses decreased by $58K or (4.2%).

  • General & Administrative expenses increased $31K or 9.1% compared to Q3 2011. This increase was due to higher legal/accounting fees, franchise disclosure documents and development of the CARbonga iPhone application.

  • The Company incurred a net loss of $89,974, or ($0.00) per diluted share in the third quarter of 2012 compared to net loss of $9,132 during the third quarter of 2011. Comparatively, legal/accounting, franchise development and professional fees attributed to CARbonga increased $59K for the quarter.

YTD 9-Months ended September, 2012:

  • Revenue decreased $473K or (7.4%) to $5,955,326 through September, 2012 compared to $6,428,518 for the same period of 2011. During the same period of 2011, the company closed two underperforming stores. The revenue decrease was primarily due to a decline in same store sales of $390K or (6.1%), resulting from increased competition and pricing discounts.

  • Same store operating expenses decreased by $196K or (4.8%).

  • General and administrative expenses were decreased by $94K or (8.6%) compared to the same period in 2011.

  • A net loss of $281,723 was recorded in the nine month period ended September 30, 2012, compared to net loss of $245,551 during the nine month period ended September 30, 2011.

President and CEO, Rich Parlontieri, added, "We continue to be affected by increased competition, discounted test fees and pricing adjustments. However, we believe the investments we've made in the past four to five months by getting our Franchise business model approved, announcing expansion into emission repair for failed vehicles and the next generation of our CARbonga app product line will improve our top line. We, of course, must also continue to manage expenses as a means of returning to profitability."

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
