GOLDEN, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/09/14 -- iSatori, Inc. (OTCQB: IFIT), an emerging leader in the development and marketing of scientifically engineered nutritional supplements for healthier lifestyles, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.
The Company's net product revenues increased 46 percent over the same quarter 2013, which resulted in net sales for the first quarter 2014 of $3.2 million compared to $2.2 million in the same period last year. The increase was due primarily to the introduction and store sales growth of three new products: (i) Meratrim® Platinum+ (ii) Garcinia Trim, and (iii) Bio-Gro. Garcinia Trim and Meratrim® Platinum+ are weight-loss pills based on newly released clinical evidence. Bio-Gro has been described as a category-defining sports nutrition product based on a new creation called "bioactive peptides" to help athletes enhance physical performance, strength, and muscular development. GNC, America's largest sports supplement retailer, started carrying Bio-Gro nationally in January 2014.
Gross profit margins increased from 55 percent of net product revenue (or $1.2 million) to 63 percent of net product revenue (or $2.0 million) over the same period in the prior year, based primarily on the higher margins associated with the three new products mentioned above. Additionally, revenue and gross margin were positively impacted by fewer returns and discounts during the first quarter.
Selling and marketing expense increased in dollar terms and as a percent of revenue (from 14 percent of net product revenue to 24 percent of net product revenue). The increase was due in part to an increase in advertising to support mass market retail expansion and expenses related to the launch of a new, bestselling book, Diets Suck!
Salaries increased in dollar terms due to the addition of two executive sales and marketing professionals, but decreased as a percent of net product revenue (from 24 percent to 20 percent). Administrative expenses decreased both in dollar terms and as a percent of net product revenue (from 19 percent to 7 percent) due primarily to a decrease in professional fees. Overall, operating expenses increased in dollar terms, but decreased as a percent of net product revenue (from 59 percent to 52 percent). Operating income improved from loss of $80,713 (or negative 4 percent of revenue) to income of $354,263 (or 11 percent of net product revenue) compared to the same quarter last year.
Net income increased from a loss $263,119 (or negative 12 percent of net product revenue) to income of $336,238 (or positive 10 percent of net product revenue) compared to the same quarter last year. As a result, basic EPS increased from $(0.02) to $0.03, while fully diluted EPS increased from $(0.02) to $0.02.
Cash flow from operations increased from $129,557 to $323,485 when comparing the three month periods ended March 31, 2012 and 2013. The company's cash balance increased to $1,219,678 as of March 31, 2014 compared to $822,876 at December 31, 2013. Accounts receivable decreased from $2,398,178 as of December 31, 2013, to $1,931,026 as of March 31, 2014. Inventory increased from $1,985,764 as of December 31, 2013, to $2,287,203 as of March 31, 2014.
The Company's current ratio increased from 1.92 as of December 31, 2013, to 2.17 as of March 31, 2014. Debt was virtually unchanged and shareholders' equity increased 13 percent for the quarter.
Highlights from the first quarter of 2014 were:
- First quarter net product revenue increased by 46 percent year over year.
- Reported 10 percent net income.
- GNC started carrying Bio-Gro, a breakthrough, category-defining, muscle-enhancement product. iSatori launched product line extensions for Bio-Gro into new size and delivery configurations.
- Released bestselling book entitled Diets Suck! to espouse iSatori and its philosophies in making a physical transformation and to help promote the Eat-Smart® line of nutritional products. Book reached Top 10 on Amazon.com during launch week.
- Presented at the 26th annual ROTH Capital Conference.
- Added executive vice presidents, for both sales and marketing divisions, to drive innovation, sales, and brand equity.
Stephen Adele, founder and Chief Executive Officer of iSatori, commented: "In our last earnings release, we stated that growth in 2014 and beyond would be driven by the improved talent level of our management team and the introduction of innovative new products. Our first quarter results are an indication that our strategic plan is working, encouraging us to continue to pursue our goals of expanding our distribution, improving our rate of sales velocity and driving continued profitable growth."

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes. In his session at DevOps Summit, Michael Demmer, VP of Engineering at Jut, will discuss how this can...

The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are ra...

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...
