OTTAWA, Canada March 26, 2015 – In-Touch Survey Systems Ltd. (“In-Touch”) (TSXV: INX) today announced its operating and financial results for the year ended December 31, 2014.

The Company previously announced that it expected account losses to impact 2014 by 25%. The Company was able to procure new business and these revenue losses are within Management’s expectations. The Company reclassified revenues of $489,611 (2013 - $692,675) as discontinued operations as its Information Management Services segment was reclassified as a disposal group.
Net earnings before income taxes were $115,348 compared to a net earnings of $406,685 reported in 2013. Gross Margin increased to 58% in 2014 compared to 57% in 2013. Company-defined adjusted EBITDA were approximately $764,000 for the year ended December 31, 2014, compared to an EBITDA of approximately $824,000 for the year ended 2013.
“We are extremely pleased with the EBITDA and net earnings performance that was achieved despite the significant change in revenues. As a percentage of revenue, EBITDA increased to 9% in 2014 compared to 8% in 2013,” said Cameron Watt, President and Chief Executive Officer.
“Over the course of 2014 a number of changes were made across the business; not only adjusting the cost structure to match the expected revenues but also to improve the focus of the business itself. 2014 saw two separate companies spun off as well as the launch of the first ever software as a service (SaaS) product. OpsMatrix has paying customers and will be a continued focus for sales, marketing and development through 2015. Additional opportunities across product lines and markets have also been identified for commercialization efforts in 2015. Monthly recurring revenue from software application licensing and user fees became a driving force for the business through 2014 and is expected to continue to set the stage for future growth,” said Watt.
