Q2 2015 Financial Results
Comparison of the three month period ended June 30, 2015 with the three month period ended June 30, 2014.
We recorded $1,083,138 in gross revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2015, offset by $514,965 of the expected settlement discount resulting in net revenue of $568,173. For the same period in 2014, gross revenue was $1,767,599, offset by $907,939 of the expected settlement discount, resulting in net revenue of $859,860. We are currently affiliated with three spine injury diagnostic centers in the United States, which are located in Houston, Texas; Odessa, Texas; and San Antonio, Texas. We had two large surgical procedures in the second quarter of 2014 that generated $148,000 in revenue that were not duplicated in 2015.
Service cost was $232,541 for the three months ended June 30, 2015 compared to $423,651 for the same period in 2014. The decrease is due mainly to lower volume.
During the three months ended June 30, 2015, we incurred $479,236 of operating, general and administrative expenses compared with the $526,400 for the same period in 2014. The decrease is attributable to decreases in (i) directors and officer compensation of approximately $62,000, (ii) marketing costs of approximately $30,000, (iii) payroll of approximately $14,000, (iv) bad debt expenses of approximately $15,000 and (v) legal expenses of approximately $12,000, coupled with an increase of (i) approximately $56,000 in consulting costs, (ii) travel costs of approximately $21,000, (iii) rent expense of approximately $6,000, and (iv) other net general and administrative expenses of approximately $3,000.
During the three months ended June 30, 2015, we incurred $93,530 of research and development expenses compared with the $6,558 for the same period in 2014. The increase is attributable to the engineering and testing fees paid to verify the Quad Video Halo (“QVH”) meets the United Laboratories (UL) requirements for medical equipment to be used in hospitals, surgery centers, and other healthcare facilities. We believe without this testing currently being performed, the QVH will not be accepted into certain healthcare markets.
As a result of the foregoing, we had net loss of $250,184 for the three months ended June 30, 2015, compared to a net loss of $153,245 for the three months ended June 30, 2014.

Spine Pain Management’s CEO, Dr. William Donovan stated, “While I am somewhat pleased that the trend in our core finance business has now been improving for three consecutive quarters in both top and bottom line, I am most happy to say with the finalizing and submission of our QVH for certification testing, management can now get back to growing the core business, both in existing locations and new affiliate additions. While Tyler was officially on-board in late June, it did not start procedures until Q3. Also, due to an unexpected situation, a Houston treatment clinic that was scheduled for late June had to be postponed until early Q3, moving a significant amount of revenues that would have added to Q2 forward to Q3. While Q2 15, seemed to have a significant drop in revenues from Q2 14, the higher revenue last year was caused by two special short term situations in that quarter whereby we funded two high dollar surgeries that we knew would pay back quickly, but at a much reduced rate of return. While they were funded and re-paid as expected, we have not replicated that activity since, preferring to maintain our liquidity for higher margin treatments as we now begin to open new centers with the completion of our QVH3. We anticipate opening at least two more new centers over the next few months.”
Donovan went on to say, “As you will hear in more detail on the Conference Call, the push-back of maybe a month from our original expected QVH certification date, has not been caused by any significant problems in testing, but more so by the decision to go for as broad a global certification as reasonably possible due to our now much broader market. As we have said in the past, the potential market for our ‘Fluoroscope docked’ QVH (QVH fixed to the lens of a fluoroscope), while easily numbering in the billions of dollars based on as many as 100,000 fluoroscopes in use worldwide, could easily jump by ten-fold or more if expanded to full surgical environments. The decision was made to attempt modification for the surgical market due to 3rd party requests. Based on recent successful modifications to the QVH, we were able to develop a non-docked version suitable for use in virtually any surgical operating room environment. Thanks to one of the high profile surgeons who suggested we attempt the modification, along with the hard work of our QVH team, we quickly and successfully completed the modification. Shortly thereafter, we were invited to test the new system with this surgeon on a multi-hour operating room procedure at a major northern hospital with no fluoroscope involved. I am happy to say the doctor was quite pleased with the outcome of this trial and has encouraged us to expand our penetration into this many times larger market. This in turn caused management to go for more intensive EMC/EMI testing which is now past the difficult electronics and compatibility phase and is in the final safety phase. Based on our consultant’s report, our expectations are for maybe another two to three weeks for final approval.”
