DENVER -- Intermap (TSX:IMP.TO), a leading provider of location-based information (LBI) solutions created from its uniform, high-resolution 3D digital models of the earth’s surface, today announced it has entered into an agreement with AIR Worldwide, the scientific leader and most respected provider of catastrophe risk modeling software and consulting services, to provide high-resolution elevation data to be used in the development of new catastrophe models for select European countries. AIR is a member of the Verisk Insurance Solutions group at Verisk Analytics (Nasdaq:VRSK - News). 

“We’re thrilled to be working with a recognized leader in catastrophe risk modeling; AIR Worldwide,” said Todd Oseth president and CEO Intermap. “Our NEXTMap database will enable AIR to provide a comprehensive, high-resolution solution for assessing and managing flood risk across Europe.” 

AIR Worldwide will integrate Intermap’s NEXTMap® database with AIR’s cutting edge catastrophe modeling capabilities, to develop high-resolution inland flood models for European countries. The 5 meter resolution data provided by Intermap, coupled with AIR’s global climate and numerical weather prediction models, will lead to the expansion of AIR’s suite of high-resolution inland flood models for Europe. 

“As more homes and businesses are constructed in flood-prone locations, insurers need better methods for assessing inland flood risk,” said Jayanta Guin, Ph.D., senior vice president of research and modeling at AIR Worldwide. “We’re pleased to be working with Intermap and incorporating its NEXTMap database to develop a new generation of models that will enable insurers to better underwrite and manage their risk from flooding both on and off floodplain.” 

The purpose of catastrophe modeling is to help companies (or public entities) anticipate the likelihood and severity of potential future catastrophes before they occur so that they can adequately prepare for their financial impact. By combining mathematical representations of the natural occurrence patterns and characteristics of hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, severe winter storms and other catastrophes, with information on property values, construction types, and occupancy classes, these simulation models provide information to companies concerning the potential for large losses.

Posted by Rich Mohr

Nov 15, 2011 8:00:00 AM

Intermap’s 3D Terrain Information Used for State Flood Mapping, Emergency Response and Infrastructure Planning

DENVER -- Intermap (TSX:IMP.TO), a leading provider of location-based information (LBI) solutions, reports that its NEXTMap data is being utilized for several critical statewide geospatial applications. This follows South Dakota’s licensing of Intermap’s NEXTMap South Dakota database during the third quarter of this year. 

“It’s critical that states have access to the most geospatially accurate 3D terrain data available for strategic planning purposes,” said Todd Oseth, Intermap president and CEO. “With Intermap’s NEXTMap database, we’re able to offer state-wide licenses for the most consistently accurate 3D imagery and elevation data to every state in the nation at extremely affordable prices.” 

The data is being used by a number of South Dakota state government entities for a variety of geospatial related applications including flood mapping, emergency response, environmental risk analysis and infrastructure planning. Intermap has set the standard for national mapping with accuracies verified to less than 1 meter - a major differentiator from other mapping products.

Intermap Technologies Reports 2011 Third Quarter Results

Posted by Rich Mohr

Nov 8, 2011 9:30:00 AM

Q3 Revenue Increases 4X Year-Over-Year to $8.1Million 
Q3 Adjusted EBITDA Positive $1.5 Million 

DENVER -- Intermap Technologies Corporation (TSX: IMP) (“Intermap” or the “Company”) today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2011. A conference call will be held today at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time to discuss the results. 

The financial information presented herein has been prepared on the basis of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) for interim financial reporting and is expressed in United States dollars, unless otherwise noted. The amounts in this earnings release, including the interim financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2010, have been restated to reflect the adoption of IFRS, with effect from January 1, 2010. 

Revenue for the third quarter of 2011 was $8.1 million, a 419% increase from $1.6 million recorded in the same period of 2010. $3.2 million was attributable to the Company’s contract services business and $4.9 million was attributable to the licensing of the Company’s NEXTMap® database, which now includes data from LiDAR, satellite imagery, and 3D city models. As of September 30, 2011, there remained $16.8 million in revenue from existing contracts ($6.3 million in contract services and $10.5 million in data licenses contracts) to be recognized beginning in the fourth quarter of 2011, but primarily during the first three quarters of 2012. Subsequent to the close of the third quarter, Intermap announced the receipt of additional contracts for NEXTMap data and related services totaling more than $2.0 million. Revenue will be recognized on these contracts beginning in the fourth quarter of this year and subsequent deliveries are scheduled to occur throughout 2012. 

“We’ve now achieved more revenue in 2011 than the Company did in all of 2010, and we will enter 2012 with a significant amount of revenue from existing contracts yet to be recognized in future periods,” stated Todd Oseth, Intermap’s president and CEO. “A new Intermap is beginning to emerge and we believe we are turning the business around by driving three primary revenue streams for the Company: NEXTMap data licensing, 3D business intelligence applications (3D-BI) and mapping services. Our proposal flow continues to grow in these three areas and we believe a meaningful amount of new sales will be the result in future periods.” 

During the third quarter, Intermap also launched its Web-based subscription service for NEXTMap 3D terrain products, accessible through Web browsers and popular desktop geographic information systems (GIS) software applications. Delivered via cloud-computing, Web Services offers a suite of hosted tools that simplifies the ability for users to quickly and easily perform terrain analysis based on an area of interest such as a county or an entire state. 

Additionally, the Company is developing new low cost, market specific applications that will integrate the NEXTMap database with third party geospatial information including LiDAR, satellite imagery, aerial photography and census data. This will allow the Company to expand existing markets and enter new markets including insurance risk assessment, mobile data services and advertising. 

“Earlier this year we modified our marketing approach, our product offerings, and our pricing structure to make the purchase of our NEXTMap information more affordable to a wider array of potential users,” said Mr. Oseth. “We now have a simplified suite of products that our customers can easily understand and our partners can easily sell. These simplified products, coupled with our new market specific applications, create valuable location based information (LBI) that supports our 3D-BI geospatial focus. The success of these changes is beginning to take hold and is a contributing reason for the four-fold increase in our third quarter revenues over last year.” 

Total operating costs in the third quarter were $6.9 million, a 20% decrease compared to $8.6 million for the third quarter of 2010. The Company has made significant workforce reductions in 2011 to help reduce its overall operating costs. Consolidated active employee headcount was 261 at September 30, 2011 (including 148 in the Company’s low-cost edit facility in Jakarta, Indonesia). This is a 54% decrease from 568 people at September 30, 2010, which included 378 in the Company’s Jakarta facility. The net impact on total expenses (after severance and termination related costs) of the workforce reductions made during the nine-month period ending September 30, 2011, is approximately $6.8 million on an annualized basis. 

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2011, a term not defined under IFRS, was positive $1.5 million, an improvement over the third quarter of 2010, which was negative $5.8 million. This quarter is the first quarter of positive adjusted EBITDA for the Company since the third quarter of 2009. The Company reported a third quarter 2011 net loss of $0.8 million, or $(0.01) per share, compared to a net loss of $51.1 million, or ($0.85) per share for the third quarter of 2010, which included an asset impairment charge of $39.1 million. 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2011, Intermap reported an 88% increase in revenues to $19.4 million, from $10.3 million for the same period in 2010. Contract services revenue for this period was $8.6 million, a 148% increase from $3.5 million in the same period in 2010, and NEXTMap licensing revenue was $10.7 million, an increase of 57% from $6.8 million for the same period in 2010. 

Adjusted EBITDA for the nine month period ended September 30, 2011 was negative $2.4 million, compared to negative $14.5 million for the same period in 2010. For the first nine months of 2011, Intermap reported a net loss of $9.1 million, or ($0.13) per share, compared to a net loss of $70.8 million, or ($1.29) per share for the same period in 2010. The nine month period ended September 30, 2011 includes an asset impairment charge of $39.1 million. 

At September 30, 2011, Intermap held cash and cash equivalents of $2.2 million and positive working capital of $0.2 million. This marks a recovery to positive working capital which was last reported at the end of the third quarter of 2010. 

The Company believes it has reasonable near-term visibility to meaningful sales opportunities during the remainder of 2011 and into 2012 for mobile data services in North America and Europe, additional mapping services contracts domestically and internationally, risk management applications in Europe, as well as opportunities in several other market segments. The Company will support these opportunities through new product development, improved marketing programs and expanded pricing plans. New location based services product offerings will provide a growing catalog of data layer options, including the integration of third-party data such as LiDAR, satellite imagery, aerial imaging, 3D city models and census information. Additionally, management has refocused the Company’s marketing and sales disciplines and believes that the value of the Company’s data lies in application solutions for specific vertical markets, and not solely in the data as a standalone product. Please visit the Company’s website at www.intermap.com for additional information about the Company. 

As of September 30, 2011, there were 78,959,883 common shares outstanding. 

Important factors, including those discussed in the Company's regulatory filings (www.sedar.com) could cause actual results to differ from the company's expectations and those differences may be material. Detailed financial results and management’s discussion and analysis can be found on SEDAR at: www.sedar.com.

Adjusted EBITDA is not a recognized performance measure under GAAP and does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS. The term EBITDA consists of net income (loss) and excludes interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes restructuring costs, stock-based compensation, and gain or loss on foreign currency translation. Adjusted EBITDA is included as a supplemental disclosure because management believes that such measurement provides a better assessment of the Company’s operations on a continuing basis by eliminating certain non-cash charges and charges that are nonrecurring. The most directly comparable measure to adjusted EBITDA calculated in accordance with IFRS is net income (loss).
