Parta Dialogue Announces a 72% Increase of its Revenues for its Last Quarter Ended November 30, 2012 to Reach Over $1M Revenues for its Last Quarter

MONTREAL, QUEBEC and TORONTO, ONTARIO and MEXICO CITY, MEXICO and PARIS, FRANCE -- (Marketwire) -- 01/30/13 -- Parta Dialogue (TSX VENTURE:PAD) an up and coming leader in social media optimization, analytics and Social Learning for organizations at the forefront of digital strategy, released results for its most recent Quarter Ended November 30, 2012. Revenues have increased by 72% compared to the previous quarter ended August 31, 2012 and by 37% compared to the same six-month period ended November 30, 2011. Not only are revenues growing organically, but the size of the individual contracts, the duration and the reoccurring nature of the business is improving. For the first time, Parta's revenues for a quarter were over a million dollars. Condensed interim unaudited consolidated Financial Statements and Management Report are available on SEDAR's website at www.sedar.com.

In addition to the $465K increase in revenues for the last quarter, Parta has also announced that, in comparison to the same six-month period ended November 30, 2011, its cost of sales have increased by 77% and the cost of marketing and sales have increased by 237% to support the Company's growth plan and the rapid development of Version 2.0 of its eValue(TM) Social Media ROI Suite. Operating expenses also includes $188K expenses related to the acquisition of M Thirty Communications Inc. in September 2012.

"To simplify our results, our top line continues to rapidly expand and we are reinvesting in the business to build for our future and ensure we are the most competitive full service offering in the market. As planned, we continue to ramp up our sales as demonstrated by our organic revenue growth. In recent months, we completed the acquisition of Toronto MTHIRTY on September 15th, and we successfully launched the eValue(TM) v2.0, our leading product to ensure the penetration of international markets. These investments produced an operating loss in the short term despite overall profitability of each contract. The company's balance sheet has improved significantly over the last 12 months and accounting loss is essentially the predictable result of the implementation of our growth strategy" stated Parta's CEO, Paul Allard.


For the six-month period ended November 30, 2012, the Company shows a net loss attributable to shareholders of $1,136,008 compared to a net loss of $141,537 for the six month period ended November, 2011 and a net loss of $495,338 for the six-month period ended November 30, 2010. Revenues have increased by 54%, from $709,307 for the quarter ended November 30, 2011 to $1,089,076 for the quarter ended November 30, 2012. For the comparative six-month periods, revenues increased for 31% in E-Learning services and increased for 40% in Social Media services. Increases in the Cost of Sales and Sales and Marketing reflect the massive investment that the Company has made in the development and commercialization of its new product eValue(TM) Social Media ROI Suite.

The gross profit decreased by 25% from $491,987 (39% of sales) for the six-month period ended November 30, 2011 to $369,733 (22% of sales) for the six-month period ended November 30, 2012.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
