15 Aug, 2011 DENVER, Colorado – August 15, 2011 (TSX: IMP) – Intermap Technologies Corporation (“Intermap” or the “Company”) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 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 six months ended June 30, 2010, have been restated to reflect the adoption of IFRS, with effect from January 1, 2010.
Revenue for the second quarter of 2011 was $4.4 million, a 16% decrease from the $5.3 million recorded in the same period in 2010. Of the revenue recognized in the second quarter, $2.4 million was attributable to the Company’s contract services business and $2.0 million was attributable to the licensing of the Company’s NEXTMap database.
“During the quarter, Intermap recognized approximately $1.0 million of revenue from the delivery of Digital Terrain Models (DTMs) along French rivers to an existing customer.” said Todd Oseth president and CEO of Intermap. “Our digital terrain information will be used by this customer to derive and generate flood maps in conjunction with the European Flood Directive. We believe additional opportunities exist in other regions in France as they continue to prepare their flood mapping plans.”
Contract service revenue in the amount of $2.1 million was recognized on a previously announced $12.4 million mapping services project in Southeast Asia (December 2010). Intermap has now recognized $4.8 million of revenue on this contract during the first half of 2011, with the bulk of the remaining contract revenue expected to be recognized during the second half of this year.
Subsequent to the close of the second quarter in 2011, Intermap announced the receipt of several new contracts for NEXTMap® data and related services totaling more than $3.0 million. Revenue will be recognized on these contracts beginning with immediate deliveries and subsequent deliveries are scheduled to occur over the next two to three months.
“Our efforts to expand our 3D product offerings while providing our customers with unparalleled flexibility when using our data has resulted in some of these recently received contracts,” said Todd Oseth. “Our team is constantly working on expanding the value of our product offerings to drive future revenue opportunities associated with location based information. We are anticipating improved revenue generation from these expanded product offerings during the second half of this year.”
Total operating costs in the second quarter were $8.1 million, a 12% decrease compared to $9.2 million for the same period in 2010. The Company made significant workforce reductions during 2010 and again in 2011, including additional reductions in the second quarter of 2011. The second quarter operating costs of $8.1 million include $0.5 million of restructuring related costs. Consolidated active employee headcount was 279 at June 30, 2011 (including 160 in the Company’s low-cost edit facility in Jakarta, Indonesia). This is a 53% decrease from 596 people at June 30, 2010 (including 356 in Jakarta, Indonesia). On an annualized basis, the net impact on total expenses (after severance and termination related costs) of the workforce reductions made during the six month period ending June 30, 2011 is approximately $6.8 million.
Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2011, a term not defined under IFRS, was negative $2.7 million, an improvement over the same period in 2010, which was negative $3.3 million. The Company reported a second quarter 2011 net loss of $3.4 million, or $(0.05) per share, compared with a net loss of $9.2 million, or ($0.18) per share for the same period in 2010.
For the six months ended June 30, 2011, Intermap reported a 29% increase in revenues to $11.3 million, from $8.7 million for the same period in 2010. Contract services revenue for this period was $5.4 million compared to $2.7 million, and NEXTMap licensing revenue was $5.9 million, staying relatively flat compared to the same period in 2010, which totalled $6.0 million. Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 was negative $3.8 million, compared to negative $8.7 million for the same period in 2010. For the first six months of 2011, Intermap reported a net loss of $8.3 million, or ($0.12) per share, compared to a net loss of $19.7 million, or ($0.38) per share for the same period in 2010.
At June 30, 2011, Intermap held cash and cash equivalents of $3.6 million and negative working capital of $0.8 million. During the second quarter, Intermap completed a private placement financing for gross proceeds of $6.8 million.
To address the recent global economic difficulties and to expand the size of the Company’s market opportunities, the Company has modified its pricing strategy and product offerings to include low cost subscriptions making the purchase of data more affordable to a wider array of potential users. This culminated in the recent launch of a new web-based subscription service for NEXTMap 3D terrain products and related location based information accessible via cloud-computing. With the new NEXTMap Web Store, customers can purchase a monthly subscription to access data and information in their area of interest. Customers now have the ability to select one of four subscription plans that best meets their needs.
Intermap Web Services offers a suite of hosted tools that gives even those unfamiliar with geographic information systems (GIS) the ability to quickly and easily perform terrain analysis based on an area of interest such as a county or entire state. Subscribers to Intermap’s Web Services can access the Company’s 3D terrain information using their current Web browsers, through desktop software like ArcGIS, Global Mapper or SocetGXP, or via an application that leverages the Intermap Web Services software developers kit (SDK).
“We’ve now made buying 3D terrain data as easy as buying a book on Amazon,” said Mr. Oseth. “Our customers can access their terrain information instantly from anywhere, and this new cloud-based approach dramatically reduces the customer’s cost of storing, maintaining or disseminating their mapping data. Via the cloud, customers can analyze their data without ever taking physical delivery of it. The new NEXTMap Web Store puts the customer in control, while delivering them simplicity and dramatic cost savings.”

In addition, Intermap recently made the NEXTMap dataset available to Esri® Premium World Elevation Service (WES) subscribers, selected as the first partner for new Esri WES. NEXTMap is a core component of WES, an aggregation of 3D terrain information available on a global basis. NEXTMap will allow users to perform view shed, line of sight, slope analysis and other common GIS analysis functions. Intermap’s NEXTMap dataset will also be available to users of Esri’s ArcGIS® software.
“Our focus for the future is in the creation of 3D business intelligence,” said Mr. Oseth. “Our customers are asking for solutions and information that solves their geospatial problems. As a result, we are creating additional layers of information in our NEXTMap database that is specific to individual vertical applications. This allows us to truly deliver location based information to the end user, instead of just data.”
The Company believes it has reasonable near-term visibility to meaningful sales opportunities during the remainder of 2011 for telecommunications applications in North America, additional mapping services contracts internationally, and risk management applications in Europe as well as opportunities in several other market segments. Intermap will support these opportunities through new product development, improved marketing programs, and expanded pricing plans. New product offerings will provide a growing catalog of data layer options, including the integration of third-party data. 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.

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).
