Dallas, Texas (November 16, 2011) – StockGuru Shines its Spotlight on CommerceTel Corporation (OTCBB: MFON). The Company is an award-winning provider of proprietary mobile marketing technologies and solutions. It announced yesterday operating results for the third quarter and FY 2011 year-to-date. The Company closed on November 15, 2011, at $1.40, trading in a fifty-two week range of $4.25 to $0.37.
For the third fiscal quarter ended September 30th, 2011, the Company reported revenue of $842,885, which represented an increase of approximately 231% when compared with revenue of $254,273 in the prior-year fiscal quarter ended September 30th, 2010 and an increase of approximately 52% when compared with revenue of $553,108 during the previous quarter of FY2011 ended June 30th, 2011.

“During our third quarter we completed the acquisition of the assets of DigiMark, LLC which included Boomtext and an outstanding client roster. With Boomtext, and our previous strategic acquisitions of the assets of Adsparq, including Txtstation, and Mobivity, we are seeing the immediate organic growth expected by implementing our award-winning, patented technology into the operations and client base of all three acquired assets,” stated Dennis Becker, Chief Executive Officer of CommerceTel.
The Company is estimating revenues of $1M for the current fourth quarter ending December 31st, 2011. Revenues of $1M for the current quarter would result in a quarterly revenue growth rate of 18.6% over the most recent third quarter.
“When you examine the historical revenue performance of these strategic acquisitions, prior to joining CommerceTel, and compare that performance to our recent quarter, the organic growth produced by the combination of these companies with our technology is quite impressive,” continued Becker. “Aside from the results we predicted through enabling these strategic acquisitions with our technology, I credit our team for their success in integrating essentially four companies in just five months.”
Gross profits increased more than 179% to $966,025 (63% of revenue) in the nine months ended September 30th, 2011, compared to $345,738 (51% of revenue) in the nine months ended September 30th, 2010.
