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."
