Second Quarter 2013 Results

Gross revenue in the second quarter of 2013 was $6.3 million, compared with gross revenue of $6.0 million in the same period a year ago. The increase in gross revenue was primarily attributable to revenue from the Company's mobile payment systems. Revenue from MVAS declined to $3.2 million, from $4.8 million for the second quarter of 2012, primarily as a result of a reduction in sales of the Company's mobile newspaper, business operator and SMS/phone-call management offerings. Revenue from the Company's MPS offerings totaled $3.2 million, compared with $1.1 million in the second quarter of 2012. The increase in MPS revenue was attributable to a sizeable order for the Company's hardware-based MPS systems.

Cost of revenue in the second quarter of 2013 was $3.2 million, compared with $0.7 million in the same period of 2012. The increase in cost of revenue was primarily attributed to the MPS hardware sale.

Gross profit in the second quarter of 2013 totaled $3.0 million, compared with $5.1 million in the second quarter of 2012. As a percentage of net revenue, gross margin was 48.7% in the second quarter of 2013, compared with 87.5% in the year-ago period. The year-over-year decline in gross margin was attributable to a significant increase in the proportion of revenue from the sale of MPS hardware.

Operating expenses in the second quarter of 2013 were $4.2 million, compared with $4.0 million in the second quarter of 2012. The increase in operating expenses was primarily attributable to an increase in allowance for doubtful debts of $0.6 million and an increase in write-off of intangible assets of $0.3 million, partially offset by reductions in business entertainment, advertising and promotion expenses as a result of cost control measures implemented earlier in the year.

Operating loss in the second quarter of 2013 was $(1.2) million, compared with operating income of $1.1 million reported in the same period last year. The decrease in operating income was primarily caused by the decrease in gross profit.

Net loss attributable to Trunkbow was $(1.4) million in the second quarter of 2013, compared with net income of $2.3 million in the second quarter of 2012. Loss per basic and diluted share in the second quarter of 2013 was $(0.04), based on basic and diluted shares outstanding of 36.8 million. This compares with earnings per basic and diluted share of $0.06, based on basic and diluted shares outstanding of 36.8 million in the year-ago period.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

As of June 30, 2013, the Company had $0.2 million in cash and cash equivalents, compared with $0.8 million as of December 31, 2012. As of June 30, 2013, the Company had working capital of $57.5 million and total shareholders' equity of $94.4 million. Accounts receivable on June 30, 2013 totaled approximately $46.5 million.
