DENVER – August 7, 2012 (TSX: IMP) – Intermap Technologies Corporation (“Intermap” or the “Company”), a leading provider of location based information solutions created from its uniform, high-resolution 3D digital models and orthorectified imagery of the Earth’s surface, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012. A conference call will be held today, August 7th, at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time to discuss the results. 

All amounts in this news release are in United States dollars unless otherwise noted.

Intermap reported total revenue of $8.0 million for the second quarter of 2012, an 80% increase compared to $4.4 million in the second quarter of 2011. Net income for the second quarter of 2012 was $0.8 million or $0.01 per share, compared with a net loss of $3.4 million, or ($0.05) per share, for the second quarter of 2011. Second quarter adjusted EBITDA, a non IFRS financial measure, was $2.7 million, compared with a loss of $2.7 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 a positive second quarter with significant improvement in both our top-line and bottom-line financial performance. As we communicated in our Q1 earnings call, we expected notable financial improvements in our Q2 results and we delivered on those expectations,” said Todd Oseth, Intermap’s president and chief executive officer. “Our NEXTMap® licensing revenue in Q2 increased materially on both a year-over-year basis and on a quarter-over-quarter basis as we delivered on a large portion of the backlog that we entered the year with. Our contract services revenue decreased during the quarter as we moved into the final processing phase of a major contract in Southeast Asia. Subsequently, we began the airborne operations phase of our Alaska project during the the last week of June, and we announced a $3.6 million expansion of that project last week. We entered the third quarter with $6.7 million of backlog, most of which is expected to be recognized as revenue prior to the end of this year.”

Mr. Oseth added, “Intermap’s sales pipeline remains strong and we expect to close new opportunities over the next two quarters. Our new business is driven by a 3D business intelligence solutions approach that addresses our customers’ specific geospatial needs in both the contract services and NEXTMap licensing portions of the business. The Company’s recently announced NEXTMap World-30 product, with its new price points, is an example of a new solution that addresses a larger customer base. Additionally, during the quarter, we continued with our solutions focus by enhancing the functionality of our AdPro, LinkPro, RiskPro and web-delivery applications. We continue to develop new commercial applications that will expand addressable customers and revenue sources for the future.”

Financial Review

Contract services revenue in the second quarter decreased to $1.6 million from $2.5 million last year, and data licensing revenue increased to $6.4 million from $2.0 million last year. As of June 30, 2012, the contract backlog of $6.7 million consisted of $2.4 million in contract services revenue and $4.3 million in data licensing revenue. 

For the second quarter 2012, personnel expense was $3.5 million, a 20% decrease from $4.3 million last year. The decrease was primarily due to workforce reductions associated with the Company’s restructuring activities during 2011.

For the second quarter 2012, purchased services and materials expense was $1.2 million, a 51% decrease from $2.5 million last year. The decrease from 2011 is primarily related to decreased job and subcontractor expenses associated with a large mapping services contract in Southeast Asia upon the completion of the airborne collection phase of that contract. 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 June 30, 2012 (cash and cash equivalents) was $2.8 million, compared to $0.5 million on March 31, 2012. The Company closed on a one-year convertible debt financing of $2.5 million on June 27, 2012.  The proceeds from the financing will be used to repay a currently outstanding senior secured loan and for working capital required to fund mapping services contracts during the term of the loan. Amounts receivable and unbilled revenue at June 30, 2012 was $4.1 million, compared to $2.7 million at March 31, 2012. Working capital improved to ($2.0) million at June 30, 2012, compared to ($4.4) million at March 31, 2012 (see “Intermap Reader Advisory” below).

Second Quarter Business Highlights

The Company announced the launch of its NEXTMap World-30 dataset, the first and only commercial 3D terrain product to provide seamless, void free coverage, with a 3-meter ground sampling distance, across the entire 150 million square kilometers of the earth’s surface. Satellite images provide 2D datasets, which are not always sufficient for business planning purposes or government feasibility studies. Intermap’s NEXTMap World-30 product offers the most comprehensive digital surface models for the entire world. This dataset can benefit planners in multiple industries including telecommunications, energy, agriculture, risk planning, water management, topographic mapping, military and a host of government services. 

The Company announced a strategic partnership with Blue Marble Geographics to integrate Intermap’s NEXTMap dataset with Blue Marble’s Global Mapper software. This integration can provide thousands of GIS analysts’ access to Intermap’s NEXTMap WebStore 2.0 for rich, high-precision elevation data and expanded coverage datasets.  

Intermap announced a $369,000 contract to provide digital elevation data from its NEXTMap database. The data was purchased by an international agency that overseas the country’s natural resources and the environment. The agency’s primary use for the data will be for geospatial related applications including water resource management, and more specifically flood risk assessment.   

Intermap was awarded a $517,000 task order from Dewbery & Davis for the second 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 $260,000 contract to provide digital elevation information from its NEXTMap database in North America. The NEXTMap data was purchased by a wireless software solution provider in order to accelerate the radio access network planning and optimization of a leading wireless network operator. 

The Company announced that its previously reported strategic partnership with Mentum, a leading wireless access and backhaul network planning and optimation company, has secured five telecommunications companies as customers of the partnership. Mentum’s CityScapes HD product is the culmination of Mentum’s and Intermap’s combined research and development efforts. This product is used by wireless network operators who plan, build and run networks in sprawling metropolitian areas where both man-made structures and vegetation play an important role in defining propagation charactersistics. 

As of August 7, 2012, there were 79,414,013 common shares outstanding. 

Important factors, including those discussed in the Company’s regulatory filings ( 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:
