All amounts in this news release are in United States dollars unless otherwise noted.
Intermap reported total revenue of $8.0 million for the third quarter of 2012, equivalent to the amount recorded in the third quarter of 2011. Net income for the third quarter of 2012 was $0.4 million or $0.01 per share, compared with a net loss of $0.8 million, or ($0.01) per share, for the third quarter of 2011. Third quarter adjusted EBITDA, a non IFRS financial measure, was $2.5 million, a 61% improvement compared with $1.5 million for the same period last year. Adjusted EBITDA excludes restructuring costs, share-based compensation, gain or loss on the disposal of equipment, and gain or loss on foreign currency translation.
“We’re pleased to announce another positive adjusted EBITDA quarter for Intermap,” said Todd Oseth, Intermap’s president and chief executive officer. “Our NEXTMap® licensing and contract services revenues in Q3 were split almost equally as we continued to deliver on our NEXTMap licensing and contract services backlog. Our contract services revenue increased significantly during the quarter as we completed the airborne collection phase of our $6.1 million contract in Alaska. We’re currently in the processing and editing phase of this project, and we are expecting to be near completion by year-end. We entered the fourth quarter with $3.7 million of backlog, and we’re optimistic that we will be able to increase this backlog as we move forward into 2013.”
Mr. Oseth added, “Our sales pipeline remains strong and we expect to close additional contracts over the remainder of the fourth quarter and into the new year. Our new business continues to be driven by our commercial 3D business intelligence solutions approach that addresses our customers’ specific geospatial needs in both the contract services and NEXTMap licensing portions of our business. During the quarter, we continued with our solutions focus by enhancing the functionality of our “Pro” series of 3D business intelligence products. We have also increased the associated marketing that is necessary to drive future recurring revenue from these products. We continue to develop new commercial applications that will expand addressable customers and revenue sources in the future.”
Contract services revenue in the third quarter increased to $4.1 million from $3.2 million last year and data licensing revenue decreased to $3.9 million from $4.9 million last year. As of September 30, 2012, the contract backlog of $3.7 million consisted of $2.6 million in contract services revenue and $1.1 million in data licensing revenue.
For the third quarter 2012, personnel expense was $3.1 million, an 11% decrease from the prior year amount of $3.5 million. On a year-to-date basis, personnel expense was $10.0 million, a 24% decrease from the prior year amount of $13.3 million.
For the third quarter 2012, purchased services and materials expense was $1.8 million, a 26% decrease from the prior year amount of $2.5 million. The decrease from 2011 is primarily related to a decrease in job and subcontractor expenses associated with contract services work that was performed during the respective periods. Purchased services and materials includes (i) aircraft related costs (ii) professional and consulting costs (iii) third-party support services related to the collection, processing and editing of the Company’s airborne data collection activities, and (iv) software expenses (including maintenance and support).
The cash position of the Company at September 30, 2012 (cash and cash equivalents) was $5.7 million, compared to $2.8 million at June 30, 2012. Amounts receivable and unbilled revenue at September 30, 2012 was $2.6 million, compared to $5.1 million at June 30, 2012. Working capital improved to ($0.1) million at September 30, 2012, compared to ($2.0) million at June 30, 2012 (see “Intermap Reader Advisory” below).

Third Quarter Business Highlights
Intermap was awarded a $3.6 million task order from Dewbery & Davis for the third phase expansion of its previously announced airborne radar mapping services project in Alaska. The elevation data and imagery collected by Intermap will be used in economic development, infrastructure development and homeland security applications.
The Company announced that it received a $368,000 contract for the creation of a new elevation data set for the Malaysian Government. The imagery and elevation data are being used for mapping and infrastructure development in Malaysia. This new elevation data set is derived from Intermap’s industry leading and proprietary data fusion process. The fused data combines the temporal immediacy of a new satellite collection with the precise accuracy of Intermap’s NEXTMap Malaysia data archive. Intermap’s data fusion process integrates stereo pairs of radar satellite imagery with existing NEXTMap data via the Company’s ISO-certified editing processes.
As of November 7, 2012, there were 79,414,013 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.

Adjusted EBITDA 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 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).
