3PEA Reports Third Quarter 2015 Financial Results

HENDERSON, Nev.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–
3PEA International, Inc. (“3PEA” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: TPNL), a
vertically integrated provider of innovative prepaid card programs and
processing services for corporate, consumer and government applications,
reported financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2015.

Q3 2015 Highlights

  • Revenues increased 19% to $2.0 million compared to $1.7 million in the
    same year ago quarter.
  • Gross profit increased to $1.1 million, or 54.3% of total revenue,
    compared to $0.6 million, or 36.7% of total revenue, in the same year
    ago quarter.
  • Net loss was $2.6 million, or $(0.06) per share, compared to net
    income of $31,000, or $0.00 per diluted share, in the same year ago
    quarter. The loss is primarily due to the legal settlement of $2.5
    million, which the company recorded as a charge in the third quarter
    of 2015.
  • The company increased its presence in the plasma donation payments
    space by adding four new centers in the quarter. Currently, the
    Company provides payment services to 91 plasma donation centers. 3PEA
    expects revenues from these centers to increase as they mature.

Management Commentary

“The increase in revenue in the third quarter was a result of growth in
our corporate incentive prepaid solutions, particularly in plasma
donation payment services,” said Brian Polan, Chief Financial Officer of
3PEA International. “More importantly, we continue to experience
significant gross margin expansion as a result of our growth in plasma
donation payment services and the successful transition of our programs
to the PaySign platform. Looking ahead, we expect to see additional
gross margin improvement. We have developed a robust sales pipeline and
remain focused on expanding our product offerings in new and existing
markets.”

Q3 2015 Financial Results

Total revenues in the third quarter of 2015 increased 19% to $2.0
million, compared to $1.7 million in the same year ago quarter. This
increase was primarily due to growth in plasma donation payment services.

Gross profit in the third quarter of 2015 increased to $1.1 million, or
54.3% of total revenues, compared to $0.6 million, or 36.7% of total
revenues, in the year ago quarter. Our gross profit margins improved due
to the launch of new card programs, the successful transition of
existing card programs to our PaySign platform and growth in our plasma
donation programs. We believe that our gross profit margins will
continue to improve as we add new card programs to the PaySign Platform.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the three months ended
September 30, 2015, were $1.2 million, an increase of $0.7 million
compared to the same period in the prior year. The increase in selling,
general and administrative expenses was primarily due to expenses
related to increased customer support staffing, expenses related to a
legal settlement and our planned expansion in the European Union. The
remaining increase in selling, general and administrative expenses was
due to additional staffing in sales, finance and technology which was
within expectations.

Other expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2015, was $2.6
million, an increase of $2.5 million compared to the same period in the
prior year. The increase in other expenses was primarily due to a one
time legal settlement of $2.5 million which the Company entered into on
October 2, 2015, which was recorded as a charge as of September 30, 2015.

Net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2015, was $2.6
million, or $(0.06) per share, compared to net income of $31,077, or
$0.00 per diluted share, in the year ago quarter. The decrease in net
income is due to the abovementioned factors.
