VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - November 30, 2016) - 3tl Technologies Corp. (TSX VENTURE: TTM) (OTCQB: TTMZF) (the "Company" or "3tl") announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016. The financial statements and management discussion and analysis for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 are available on SEDAR.

The Company's performance highlights for the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2016:

- Revenue increased by 666% to $267,968 and by 126% to $610,402 for the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively, compared to the same periods in 2015.

- Increased the number of PLATFORM3 license agreements with leading CPG brands to 38, which will be completed or commence in 2016.

- Increased the average value of license agreements including, the multi-year agreement with NBC Universal owned Fandango Rewards signed in the quarter ended June 30, 2016, and two agreements signed in the quarter ended September 30, 2016 for $108,000 over ten weeks and for $86,000 over two months, compared with short-term licenses averaging approximately $15,000 earlier in 2016.

- Launched two new modules to PLATFORM3, Targeted Couponing and Shopper Messaging, based on customer feedback and demand.

"In 2016 our team has grown revenues and gross profits while reducing operating expenses. In the third quarter, we launched new modules that enable leading consumer packaged goods brands to target coupons and messaging at consumers that have validated purchases on PLATFORM3," said Rob Craig, CEO of 3tl Technologies Corp. "Our value proposition is gaining traction in the U.S. market as evidenced by repeat business from leading brands and ad agencies and longer term SaaS license agreements."


Revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2016 increased by 666% to $267,968 and revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 increased by 126% to $610,402, compared to the same periods last year. The Company's revenue increase in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 was due to a larger number of license agreements delivered and a trend towards longer term and larger value license agreements compared to the same periods ended September 30, 2015.

The Company started 2016 with over 20 short-term licenses averaging approximately $15,000 per license. These license agreements were with leading brands and agencies, many of which are coming back for repeat business. The last three license agreements have been larger and with longer-term, including the multi-year agreement with NBC Universal owned Fandango Rewards signed in the quarter ended June 30, 2016, and two agreements signed in the quarter ended September 30, 2016 for $108,000 over ten weeks and for $86,000 over two months. The revenues from the Fandango Rewards agreement will be recognized over the two-year period, while the other two projects were completed and will be recognized in 2016. In the fourth quarter of 2016, 3tl is focused on securing longer-term license agreements, which are expected to launch and be recognized mostly in 2017.

Gross margin as a percentage of sales increased to 55% and 70%, respectively, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 compared to gross loss of 40% and gross margin 21% for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 due to the growth of high margin SaaS revenues from PLATFORM3 and Purchase Receipt Scanning and by attaining efficiencies through economies of scale. Gross margin as a percentage of sales in the quarter ended September 30, 2016 decreased compared to 83% in the quarter ended June 30, 2016 due to an increase in customer service expenses to prepare for an expected increase in customers and to a lower margin sale of third party services. Gross margin as a percentage of sales is expected to increase in future periods due to economies of scale and a higher proportion of SaaS sales.

As the size and term of 3tl's agreements increase it is expected that some agreements will include a SaaS component with gross profit margins estimated at over 80%, and a lower margin managed services component. Our sales team is focused on maximizing high-margin SaaS revenues, but some of the major brands and agencies need some additional support to implement their digital marketing plans.

General and administrative expenses for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 decreased to $184,527 and $691,805, respectively, compared to $360,324 and $1,151,484 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015.

Sales and marketing expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2016 increased to $207,233 compared to $148,641 for the three months ended September 30, 2015. Sales and marketing expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 remained relatively stable at $539,111, compared to $541,412 incurred in the same period ended September 30, 2015.

Research and development ("R&D") expenditure for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 decreased to $90,909 and $250,358, respectively, compared to $113,269 and $492,633 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, which was related to reduction of human resources and outsourcing activities. After more than four years of investment in R&D in PLATFORM3, 3tl is positioned to provide a digital marketing platform on a SaaS basis that provides a compelling value proposition to CPG brands while generating high-margin recurring revenues to the Company. In 2016, 3tl plans has launched additional modules and made improvements to PLATFORM3 based on customer needs, but has focused resources on sales, implementation and customer service. In the three-month period ended September 30, 2016 3tl launched Targeted Couponing and Shopper Messaging, two new modules to PLATFORM3 based on market experience and customer feedback. 3tl expects to increase investments in R&D in 2017 to maintain and improve its product and enhance its competitive advantage, subject to available resources.

Share-based compensation for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 was $62,271 and $211,704, respectively, compared to $14,229 and $107,506 for the same periods ended September 30, 2015.

Net and comprehensive loss for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 decreased to $395,264 and $1,263,017 compared to $633,495 and $2,213,681 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015. This decrease was due to overall decrease in general and administrative, sales and marketing, and research and development related to cost reduction efforts.
