Speedemissions, Inc. Reports Year End 2013 Results

ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/31/14 -- Speedemissions, Inc. (OTCQB: SPMI), a leader in the vehicle emissions and safety inspections industry, with 43 locations in Atlanta, Houston, St. Louis and Salt Lake City, and the developer of CARbonga-SRI and CARbonga, the revolutionary automobile diagnostic iPhone apps, announced its financial results for the year ended December 31, 2013.

"While we were presented with several unanticipated challenges this year, there were tangible and measurable improvements that began showing positive results in late 2013 as a result of several corporate actions that we implemented," stated Rich Parlontieri, Speedemissions President and CEO.

  • Same store sales increased in Atlanta for the year 7.3%

  • General and Administrative expenses were reduced 16%

  • Same store operating expenses were reduced 3%

  • Five underperforming and/or non-profitable stores were eliminated, allowing for an improvement in 2014 store operations by an estimated $150,000

  • Improvements made to CARbonga-SRI with its "Push Notification" and its ability to notify any car owner with instant information on their model's safety recall and/or technical service bulletin information (TSB) which the Company believes can lead to a significant increase in sales of the mobile app as it relates to the over 22 million auto manufacturer safety recalls in 2013 and over 40 million used cars sold annually

Parlontieri added, "The measures instituted, plus the November 2013 acquisition of seven stores in Atlanta, should help in recapturing the revenue drop realized in 2013, which was caused by two leases lost by stores in Atlanta and Salt Lake, plus the safety inspection law change in Utah that reduced the number of vehicles we inspect by over 33%. These three events reduced revenue by approximately $600,000 and negatively impacted net income by an estimated $380,000. Had those events not occurred, our bottom line would have looked much healthier."

For the year ended December 31, 2013, revenue decreased 8.5%, or approximately $675,000, to $7,095,937 as compared to 2012 revenue of $7,752,601. This reduction in revenue is primarily due to the two lost store leases and a safety inspection law revision.

The Company incurred a loss from operations for the year ended December 31, 2013 of $588,349 and a net loss of $814,482, or $0.016 per basic and diluted share, compared to an operating loss of $534,549 and a net loss of $656,037, or $0.02 per basic and diluted share, in the year ended December 31, 2012.

"We are still operating in an undercapitalized state, so our focus is, and will remain on, managing expenses, exploring all options to broaden our product and service offerings, increasing our per-store revenue and initiating programs to increase our customer base," stated Parlontieri.

A full analysis of results for the period ended December 31, 2013 is available in the Company's Form 10-K, which is available on the Company's website at www.speedemissions.com or within the Filings section of the Securities and Exchange Commission's web site located at www.sec.gov.
