"Higher revenues, improved gross margin and lower operating costs all contributed to positive financial results for the quarter," said Charles Buehler, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ORMI. "As a result, net income was $45,000 for the quarter, an increase of $88,000, and EBITDA was $462,000, an increase of $105,000 or 29%. This performance was achieved in spite of the significant one-time legal and other corporate costs which were incurred as part of the proceedings related to the potential sale of the Company, as announced on October 17, 2012."
Total revenues were $3,628,000, an increase of $55,000 or 2% over Q1 2012 revenues, mainly due to a 2% volume increase in residuals collected from customers. Gross margin was $1,428,000, an increase of $76,000 or 6%, to 39% as a percentage of revenues compared to 38% for Q1 2012. Total operating expense was $1,309,000 for the quarter, a decrease of $22,000 or 2% from Q1 2012. Operating expense includes approximately $78,000 in one-time legal and other corporate costs related to the potential sale of the Company. Interest expense was $58,000 for the quarter, a decrease of $6,000 or 10% from Q1 2012.

Non-IFRS financial measures are used by management to evaluate the performance of the Company. Non-IFRS financial measures do not have any meaning prescribed by IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other reporting issuers.
