Jeff Markin, president and chief executive officer of VirtualScopics stated, "While the company continued to advance technically and operationally in 2012, we were disappointed with the lack of revenue growth which impacted our bottom line." He continued, "As I have stated in previous comments, our 2012 top line numbers were impacted by a slowdown in new project awards and delays in the initiation of new studies. This drove an internal analysis to identify areas that would have the greatest impact on accelerating new contract awards while enhancing client satisfaction." He stated, "I am proud of the commitment shown by our employees and am pleased to report that project wins in the fourth quarter were the greatest of any quarter last year." He added, "I also remain encouraged about our opportunities heading into 2013 as our RFP (request for proposal) activity remains strong." He further added, "We also saw a significant increase in the number of proposal requests generated through our PPD alliance as we continued to more fully integrate our sales and operations teams." He concluded, "With the continued strengthening of the PPD alliance, strong relationships with existing clients, and a growing proposal pipeline we anticipate 2013 will show a rebound in new project activity." "During 2012, we made investments in several key areas, specifically, our software platform which is the basis of our image analysis services, our customer satisfaction program, and our personalized medicine initiative. In light of the softness we experienced in new project awards, we believe it is important to continue to invest in areas that will result in expanding our capabilities and focusing on the needs of our customers," stated Molly Henderson, chief business and financial officer of VirtualScopics.She added, "Certain investments have already yielded results; specifically our investments in enhancing customer satisfaction generated a noticeable increase in the number of repeat customers in 2012 when compared to 2011." She continued, "Additionally, 2012 was a very important year in the evolution of our personalized medicine business. In April we announced a significant investment by the Merck Global Health Innovation Fund to support this initiative." She concluded, "We continue to strongly believe in the opportunity and role that quantitative imaging will have in both the drug development and personalized medicine markets."

The Company provides Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure to Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") regarding the Company's operational performance. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings less interest, taxes (if any), depreciation and amortization as further adjusted to exclude stock-based compensation expense and the loss/gain on derivative instrument (mark to market adjustment for warrants). This financial measure excludes the impact of certain items and, therefore, has not been calculated in accordance with GAAP. The Company's method of calculating Adjusted EBITDA, however, may differ from methods used by other companies, and, as a result, Adjusted EBITDA measures disclosed herein may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies. The Company continues to provide information in accordance with GAAP, however, with the adoption of Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") 815-40 and the non-cash variable nature of stock-based compensation expense and their very substantial impact on the overall reported net income/loss, the Company believes it is also helpful for investors to receive additional information relating more specifically to the Company's operating results. Accordingly, the Company has presented Adjusted EBITDA which excludes the non-cash effects of ASC 815-40 and ASC 718 on its financial results. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA (a) to evaluate the Company's financial performance, (b) to set internal spending budgets, and (c) to measure operational profitability. In addition, investors have requested these non-GAAP financial measures as a means of providing consistent and comparable information with past reports of financial results. Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, the Company has provided a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, net income/(loss), below.
