FlexShopper, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2014 Results and Accelerating Lease Originations

BOCA RATON, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 05/15/14 -- FlexShopper, Inc. (OTCQB: FPAY) announced today its results of operations for the quarter ended March 31, 2014. For the quarter ended March 31, 2014, lease revenues were $103,921. FlexShopper began originating lease-to-own transactions of durable goods in late December 2013 and, therefore, had no revenues for the comparable period of 2013. FlexShopper originated 765 leases in the first quarter of 2014, its first quarter of meaningful operations in its new business. FlexShopper's current lease portfolio is in excess of 1,700 leases.

FlexShopper had a net loss from continuing operations of $1,201,375 for the quarter ended March 31, 2014. The net loss is primarily the result of operating expenses of $1,061,787 associated with starting and operating the new FlexShopper business.

In December 2013, FlexShopper announced that it is actively pursuing the sale of its Anchor Funding Services business. On April 30, 2014, a definitive agreement was entered into to sell the Anchor assets and the transaction should be completed in May 2014. The sale of these assets is expected to provide additional liquidity and capital resources to fund the company's new FlexShopper business. As described in the company's Form 10-Q, the company is in the process of seeking to complete a private placement offering of $8 million with an adjusted maximum of $9.6 million. Contemporaneously with the private placement offering, two of the company's founders, officers and/or directors have made an investment of $1 million into FlexShopper at the same price and terms per share as the shares sold in the private placement offering. The aforementioned transactions are expected to provide substantial liquidity and capital resources for the company to purchase durable goods pursuant to lease-to-own transactions and to support the company's current general working capital needs.

Brad Bernstein, President, stated, "We are pleased with our month over month growth in lease originations that we are experiencing since our launch. We are also pleased that in 2014 we have already launched our LTO technology across two sales channels: 1) serving as the financial and technology partner for durable goods retailers and 2) selling directly to consumers via our online LTO Marketplace featuring thousands of durable goods. Our third sales channel, a patent pending LTO payment method at check out on e-commerce sites will also launch this year. We are positioning ourselves as the only platform that can provide retailers and e-tailers that sell furniture, electronics, computers, appliances and other durable goods with three ways of increasing their sales: in the store, online and on our marketplace. We enable merchants to sell to more than 50 million consumers that don't have sufficient credit or cash to buy from them. In addition, there's no risk to the merchant because FlexShopper pays the merchant. The consumer wins also because they can ultimately shop online for what they want, where they want. We believe the market for our services is over $20 billion."

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
