Results of Operations

For the Quarter ended March 31, 2018.

Comparison of the three month period ended March 31, 2018 with the three month period ended March 31, 2017.

We recorded $1,058,124 in gross revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2018, offset by $423,698 of the variable consideration discount resulting in net revenue of $634,426.

For the three months ended March 31, 2018, we worked with four spine injury diagnostic centers: Houston, Texas; Tyler, Texas; Odessa, Texas and Las Cruces, New Mexico. Service cost was $193,645 for the three months ended March 31, 2018 compared to $156,804 for the same period in 2017. The increase in service cost is attributable to the higher case volume in Odessa, coupled with our Las Cruces affiliate recording revenue for the first time in the first quarter of 2018.

During the three months ended March 31, 2018, we incurred $349,273 of operating, general and administrative expenses compared to $382,028 for the same period in 2017. Operating, general and administrative expenses were lower or the 2018 quarter compared to 2017 primarily because of a decrease in consulting fees, website planning expense and payroll expenses, website planning fees, and traveling expenses totaling approximately $48,000, coupled with increases in bad debt expense, travel expense, rent, legal expenses and other expenses of $15,000. The higher consulting costs for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 were mostly incurred in connection with the marketing of the QVH. There were no research and development costs during the quarter ended March 31, 2017. We also experienced an increase of $8,081 in non-cash operating charges from $46,827 for the three months ended March 31, 2017 to $54,908 for the three months ended March 31, 2018.
