Claimsnet.com Reports Amended First Quarter 2011 Results

DALLAS, May 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Claimsnet.com inc. (OTCBB: CLAI), a leading provider of Internet-based business-to-business solutions for the healthcare industry, today filed an amendment to its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q which was originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on April 29, 2011, to correct the accounting treatment for the adoption of FASB issued ASU No. 2010-28, When to Perform Step 2 of the Goodwill Impairment Test for Reporting Units with Zero or Negative Carrying Amounts, on January 1, 2011. Additional information on the effect of the correction in our financial statements as a result of this restatement is contained in Note 7 – Restatement of Financial Statements appearing elsewhere in the report.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2011, the Company reported revenues of $573,000, a 1% decrease from the $578,000 reported for the first quarter of 2010.

Expenses overall, comprised of cost of revenues and selling, general and administrative expenses increased 4% compared with the first quarter of 2010. Cost of revenues for the first quarter of 2011 was $434,000 compared to $414,000 in the first quarter of 2010, an increase of 5%.  Selling, general and administrative expenses of $176,000 were reported for the first quarter of 2011, compared to the $173,000 reported in the first quarter of 2010.

The Company reported a gross profit of $139,000 for the first quarter of 2011, compared with a $164,000 gross profit in the first quarter of 2010.

The loss from operations for the first quarter of 2011 was $37,000, compared to a loss of $9,000 reported in the first quarter of 2010. The net loss for the first quarter of 2011 was $42,000, or $0.00 per share, compared to $16,000, or $0.00 per share, in the first quarter of 2010.

"Although sales were down 1% in the quarter, a closer look shows that this was attributed to a decline with one customer that had a short-term high volume requirement in the 1st quarter of last year. If we take out that customer for comparative purposes, our volumes were up 7.3% and revenue was up 9% over the same quarter last year; both figures showing that our relationships with existing, and a number of new customers, remain strong and growing," commented Don Crosbie, Chief Executive Officer of Claimsnet.
