NEWARK, Calif., – February 26, 2014 – Socket Mobile, Inc. (OTC: SCKT), an innovative provider of mobile productivity solutions, today reported financial results for the year and fourth quarter ended December 31, 2013.

Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $3.7 million, an increase of 32 percent compared to revenue of $2.8 million in the same quarter a year ago, and an 11 percent increase sequentially from the preceding quarter. Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $0.4 million, or a loss of $0.09 per share, compared to a net loss of $0.7 million, or a loss of $0.14 per share, in the fourth quarter of 2012. Operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2013 were $1.8 million, an increase of 12 percent compared to fourth quarter 2012 operating expenses of $1.6 million. Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA), a non-GAAP measure of operating results, was a loss of $0.1 million, or $0.03 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2013 compared to an EBITDA loss of $0.4 million, or $0.07 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2012.
Kevin Mills, president and chief executive officer, commented, “The growth in our annual revenue for 2013 primarily reflects the strength of our cordless barcode scanning business, which grew 69 percent in 2013 over the prior year, driven by increasing numbers of business applications running on Apple, Android and Windows smartphones and tablets. Cordless barcode scanning in 2013 represented 61 percent of total revenue for the year and 66 percent in the fourth quarter.
“Socket’s cordless scanning business is driven by independent developer Applications that support our barcode scanners. These applications are developed to solve a business problem or improve a business process, many of which require barcode scanning and once deployed, they drive the requirement for our cordless scanners. While we believe the mobile application market is still in its early stages, we see an increasing number of companies developing and deploying mobile solutions such as Apple based Mobile Point of Sale Systems. These include new market entrants like ShopKeep, Square and Shopify and more traditional Point of Sale players like NCR. All are being driven to support retail customers to improve the selling experience for the customers.
“Today, Socket Mobile has over 800 registered developers and approximately 300 completed Applications in the market, of which approximately 200 that support our barcode scanners are available in the Apple App Store. In addition, approximately 100 companies have completed an Application for their own internal use. This growing base of Applications is the driving force for our Cordless Barcode Scanning Sales.
“The balance of our 2013 revenue came from sales of our Windows based SoMo handheld computers, legacy products and service. We continue to sell and service our SoMo handheld computers.
“The improvement in our overall 2013 financial operating results over the prior year reflects revenue growth, improving margins and reduced operating costs while maintaining Socket’s product development and other essential programs. Our primary goals for 2014 are to continue to attract and support mobile application developers with barcode scanning products designed for the mobile markets and to achieve continued growth and profitable operating results,” Mr. Mills concluded.
