Third Quarter Financial Results Summary
Peak recognized $45,923 of gross royalty revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2012 compared to $2,326 in the comparable period of 2011. Net royalties (after deducting amortization of other assets, which is a non-cash expense) amounted to $26,788, compared to $2,326 in the prior year period. The royalty flows for the period stem from Peak's agreement with LongKey-Hong Kong Ltd. (LongKey).
Expenses for the three-month period ended September 30, 2012 amounted to $742,329 compared to $360,502 in the comparable period of 2011. The increase in 2012 expenses was principally due to a $230,190 contribution to new offices shared with LongKey in China as well as a $90,000 contribution to LongKey's mobile lab.
The third quarter expenses included R&D expenditures of $166,760 compared to $111,155 in the comparable period of 2011. These costs are before deducting investment tax credits, which are accounted for on an annual basis only.
The net loss for the three month period ending September 30, 2012 was $742,329 compared to $358,176 in the comparable period of 2011.
During the third quarter Peak raised $300,000 gross, in a combination of debt and new equity capital.

However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.
