Results of Operations
For the year ended December 31, 2015 versus 2014:
We recorded $2,192,182 in net revenues with $849,756 in costs of services and gross profit of $1,342,426 for the year ended December 31, 2015. For the year ended December 31, 2014, we recorded $2,046,977 in net revenues with $980,811 in costs of services and gross profit of $1,066,166. Revenue for 2015 was up due to a higher collection percentage experienced for our Texas affiliates.
We recognize revenue by reference to “net revenue,” which is gross amounts billed using CPT codes less account discounts that are expected to result when individual cases are ultimately settled. A discount rate of a 48% and 52%, based on settled patient cases, was used to determine net revenue during 2015 and 2014, respectively. Accordingly, we had gross revenues of $4,384,362 with net revenues of $2,192,182 for the year ended December 31, 2015, versus gross revenues of $4,239,164 with net revenues of $2,046,977 for the year ended December 31, 2014.
For the year ended December 31, 2015 versus 2014:
Operating, general and administrative expenses for the year ended December 31, 2015 were $2,085,986 as compared to $2,443,386 for the year ended December 31, 2014. The decrease in operating expenses was primarily the result of fewer legal costs, consulting costs, and marketing costs.
Bad debt expense, included in operating, general and administrative expenses, totaled $467,600 and $300,000, respectively, for the years ended December 31, 2015 and 2014. The increase in bad debt expense is primarily attributable to our decision to discontinue doing business in Florida in 2014, which has resulted in limited personnel and affiliates in the region to assist in collection efforts. We increased the allowance related to Florida to reflect collection trends in Florida.
Other income (expense) for the year ended December 31, 2015 was an expense of $52,267 as compared to expense of $265,269 for the year ended December 31, 2014. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2015, other income of $10,234 offset by interest expenses of $62,501 resulting in the $52,267 expense. For the year ended December 31, 2014, other income was $23,219 offset by expenses of $288,488 totaling the expense of. $265,269. Included in the 2014 expenses was a non-cash charge of $56,078 for the restructuring charge of certain debt. The decrease in expense 2015 versus 2014, other than the noncash charges, is primarily attributable to the restructuring of our debt from high interest notes to our line of credit with Wells Fargo which bears interest at the 30 day London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) plus 2%, resulting in an effective rate of 2.42% at December 31, 2015.
Net Income or Loss
For the year ended December 31, 2015 versus 2014:
Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2015 was $1,057,603 compared to net loss of $1,692,658 for the year ended December 31, 2014. Higher revenues, lower operating expenses, coupled with reduced interest costs, and lower personnel costs to develop and market the Quad Video Halo, resulted in net loss decreasing in 2015 from 2014.

Spine Injury Solutions Inc. CEO, Dr. William Donovan stated, “It has been an extremely busy year for SPIN and particularly its wholly owned QVH Subsidiary. In spite of numerous unexpected delays and costs paired with the decision to expand the reach of QVH Internationally, Management is proud to have delivered a vast financial improvement over recent years in both top and bottom line. Combining our 2015 Financial Results along with the addition of two nationally renowned Personal Injury Experts to the SPIN family, Dr. Jeffery Cronk JD to our Board and Dr. Matthew DeGaetano to our Sales and Marketing effort, can only be credited to our time proven core Affiliate business model and impressive and unique Quad Video HALO product line.
2015 is the first year where our Diagnostic Affiliates were using the enhanced QVH. Though we may have handled some 20% fewer cases (due to terminating our several Florida Affiliates in early 2014) we still managed to beat the prior year top and bottom line, the later significantly; and dramatically increase our Gross Margin Year over year by some 26%. This is tangible proof of our prior belief that by using the QVH, cases would settle quicker and for higher amounts.
Secondly, further validation to the perceived efficacy and need for our unique QVH system was achieved by attracting Jeff Cronk and Matt DeGaetano, both successful expert visionaries and true victim advocates in PI field, to the SPIN Family.”
Donovan went on to say; “While everyone, including management, would like to think that such a revolutionary and needed product such as QVH, ‘should be flying off the shelf’ if it is so good, certain important points should be considered. It is a unique product being delivered by a new company in the medical diagnostics field at a time of considerable belt tightening by medical facilities. The company has taken steps to strengthen its sales and marketing efforts dealing with the QVH. With our own internal evidence based on 2015 results and the addition of Cronk and DeGaetano, we now feel we are positioned for a stronger year ahead. I encourage all interested parties to join us on our Interactive video conference call today where in addition to Management, Dr. DeGaetano and Dr. Cronk will be available for Q&A.”
