For the year ended December 31, 2010, net income was $275,008, or one cent per share, on revenue of $4,029,647 compared to net income of $982,526, or three cents per share, on revenue of $6,029,968, for fiscal 2009. The decrease in revenue and profitability is due to the effects of the prolonged global downturn and a weaker US dollar.
For the three month period ended December 31, 2010, net income was $15,140 or 1/10 of a cent per share, on revenue of $917,190 compared to net income of $42,673, or 1/10 of a cent per share, on revenue of $1,304,424 for the final quarter of 2009. The decrease in profitability over previous quarters is primarily due to an increased provision for doubtful accounts.
"We are very pleased to announce another profitable year and quarter during these challenging economic times," commented David MacLaren, President and CEO of VRX. "2010 was a difficult yet very exciting year as we continued to refine our cost structure, improve our financial flexibility and expand our service offering and markets with the launch of MediaValet™ - the world's first 100% cloud-based digital asset management system."
