Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2012 increased 103% to a record $6,700,388, compared to $3,300,213 for the year ended December 31, 2011.

Fiscal Years Ended December 31, 2012 and 2011

Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2012 were $6,700,388, an increase of $3,400,175 compared to the year ended December 31, 2011, when revenues were $3,300,213. The increase in revenue is due to two factors: the first factor being the launch of several new card programs during 2012; and the second factor due to an increase in processing, program management, development, fulfillment and customer service fees compared to the prior year. We expect our revenues to continue to trend upward as the economy improves and as we roll out additional debit card programs utilizing our newest processing platform, diversify our product line and increase the number of support services offered to our customers.

Cost of revenues for the year ended December 31, 2012 were $5,305,359, an increase of $2,902,234 compared to the year ended December 31, 2011, when cost of revenues were $2,403,125. Our costs of revenues have increased primarily due to an increase in transaction processing fees. Cost of revenues constituted approximately 79% and 74% of total revenues in 2012 and 2011, respectively. Cost of revenues is comprised of transaction processing fees, data connectivity and data center expenses, network fees, card production costs, customer service and program management expenses, application integration setup and sales expense.

In the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012, we recorded operating income of $574,851, as compared to an operating income of $278,886 in the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011, and improvement of $295,965.

Other income (expense) for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $1,233,723, an increase in net other income of $1,297,423 compared to the prior year ended December 31, 2011 when other (expense) was $(63,700). The overall increase in net other income (expense) in 2012 is primarily due to a gain on debt extinguishment totaling $1,295,879.

Our net income for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $1,816,861, an increase of $1,610,570 compared to the year ended December 31, 2011, when we recorded a net income of $215,291. The overall change in net income is attributable to the aforementioned factors.
