Power of PAYBOX®
Direct Insite Announces First Quarter 2015 Results
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., May 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Direct Insite Corp. (OTCQB:DIRI), provider of the PAYBOX® integrated receivables platform, announced today financial results for the first quarter of 2015. Net income for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was $80,000, compared with a net loss of $86,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2014. The year-over-year gain in quarterly net income was due to higher recurring revenue and lower expenses in 2015.
Revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was $2,060,000, an increase of $90,000, or 4.6%, from revenue of $1,970,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2014. Recurring revenue for the first quarter was $1,707,000, an increase of $89,000, or 5.5%, from recurring revenue of $1,618,000 for the comparable prior year period. The year-over-year increase was due to the November 2014 launch of the PAYBOX® integrated receivables solution and increased usage from certain other customers.
Non-recurring revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was $353,000, an increase of $1,000, or 0.2%, from non-recurring revenue of $352,000 for the compared prior year period, as higher charges for the facilitation of scanning services were offset by the non-recurrence of large prior year professional service fees.
Operating costs and expenses of $1,975,000 were $74,000, or 3.6%, lower than in the prior year as various cost-cutting measures and the non-recurrence of prior year legal and professional fees related to strategic opportunities were partially offset by less costs capitalized for internally developed software and higher scanning charges.
Working capital (defined as current assets less current liabilities) at March 31, 2015 was $2,265,000, an increase of $282,000, or 14.2%, from working capital of $1,983,000 at December 31, 2014.
Cash provided by operating activities for the nine months ended March 31, 2015 was $514,000, compared to cash used in operations of $162,000 for the comparable prior year period.
"Direct Insite is building on the momentum that we established during the second half of 2014," said Direct Insite Chairman and CEO Matthew E. Oakes. "Last year's successful launch of our PAYBOX® integrated receivables platform, coupled with PAYBOX winning the BAI Payments Innovation Track Award and being ranked in the leader quadrant in Celent's 2015 Integrated Receivables report, validates our strong position in the receivables market."
