Management Commentary
"Record revenue and gross margin expansion in the third quarter reflects the growing success of the strategic shift we have made over the past two years to develop our field mobility solutions and professional services and software divisions," said Nicholas Toms, CEO of DecisionPoint. "The three acquisitions that we have completed during that time -- CMAC, Apex and Illume Mobile -- have broadened our software products and professional services capabilities, opened new markets and deepened our relationships with our customers, including our carrier partners. We now offer the full range of mobile solutions to meet the requirements of any enterprise mobility strategy. In addition, higher margin professional software and services revenue has grown to over 35% of total revenue, leading to the improved corporate gross margins.

"An increasingly mobile workforce continues to drive demand for our field mobility solutions. The bundled solutions for enterprise and small business applications that we market together with our wireless carrier partners, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile, are gaining traction, adding to the installed user base and increasing recurring revenue to the Company," added Mr. Toms. "And as the retail industry embarks on an overdue technology upgrade of its outdated systems, it is creating opportunities for our tablet-based assisted shopping solution suite for in-store applications that increases productivity and reduces costs. Excluding one-time costs related to the two acquisitions that we completed earlier this year and other restructuring and one-time costs, our third quarter and year to date adjusted EBITDA was $1.1 million and $2.4 million, respectively. As we execute our strategy to build the capabilities of our Professional Services and Software Group and with positive momentum in our field mobility and retail systems divisions, we remain well positioned for continued revenue and adjusted EBITDA growth."

Third Quarter 2012 Results
Revenue was $18.6 million, compared to $16.4 million for quarter ended September 30, 2011 and $17.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2012. The 12.9% year-over-year increase was primarily due to increased field mobility solution sales and increased professional services revenue.

Gross profit was $4.3 million, compared to $3.4 million for quarter ended September 30, 2011 and $3.8 million for the second quarter of 2012. Gross profit margin was 23.4%, compared to 20.9% for the same period a year ago and 21.3% for the second quarter of 2012. The increases are due to the higher gross margin from professional services revenue and improved utilization of professional services resources. Additionally, the Company has continued to emphasize cost control and improved efficiencies throughout its operations.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $5.0 million, compared to $3.3 million for the same period of 2011, and $4.8 million for the second quarter of 2012. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to increased personnel and operating expenses relating to the Illume and Apex acquisitions of $0.6 million as well as Illume and Apex acquisition related costs of $0.5 million.

The operating loss was $0.6 million, compared to operating income of $0.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2011, and an operating loss of $1.1 million in the second quarter of 2012.
