Included in this update:
- Virtutone Networks releases third quarter financial results
- Congratulations to the winners of the 2011 QIS Stock Challenge
We are pleased to congratulate the winner of the 2011 QIS Capital Stock Challenge - Bobwins! After a rough year in the markets, just a few of the contestants were able to post a gain during the 2011 Stock Challenge. Finishing in second was Intuition while joshpacific rounded out the top 3. Congratulations to all of the winners - We will be sending email notifications of your prizes shortly. View the complete results on the website at: www.qiscapital.com/stockchallenge.php
Due to declining interest in the QIS Stock Challenge, likely due mainly to the lackluster performance of the Canadian Small-Cap Market, we will not be running a 2012 Stock Challenge. Instead we will be going back to the popular QIS Capital Trading Summary and will be starting trading soon with a virtual portfolio of $50,000. There are lots of great investment opportunities out there, so check back often to see how the QIS Trading Summary is doing. We should be up and running in the next 2 weeks.
QIS Capital would like to wish everyone a Happy and Prosperous New Year and all the best in 2012!! I have to say that it’s been several years since I was this excited about a new investment year. While I would expect the general market to continue to be dogged by global economic concerns, I have very high expectations for the majority of the companies for which we are currently providing full coverage.
Here are just a few of the items we are looking forward to in 2012:

Virtutone Networks Inc. (VFX:TSX-V)
Current Price: $0.135 (coverage commenced Sep. 9/11 - $0.10)
Virtutone Networks Inc. has reported its third quarter 2011 financial results. The company derives its income from the initial sale of FTAs, ATAs, and IP phones, which is supplemented with recurring monthly revenue generated from phone lines, fax lines and various other services. Monthly service and activations of $648,015, product sales of $59,904 and interest of $9,504 during the three month period ended October 31, 2011 resulted in total revenue of $717,423. This revenue was offset by cost of services provided and products sold in the amount of $368,624 and resulted in a gross profit before expenses of $348,799. Total revenue for the three month period ended October 31, 2010 was $1,076,581 and gross profit before expenses was $461,299. The decrease in revenue and gross profit was due primarily to revenue generated by the company’s Field Services Division (FSD) in the third quarter of the prior year to complete the Cash Store Financial rollout.
During the third quarter, the company completed a non-brokered private placement by issuing 4,000,001 common shares for proceeds of $300,000. Of the shares issued, 2,938,668 were subscribed for by insiders of the company. This has allowed Virtutone to return to positive working capital, which management believes will be sufficient to enable the company to operate effectively and to carry out its growth strategy for the foreseeable future.
As at October 31, 2011, Virtutone had a working capital position of $250,854 or $0.014 per share, as compared to the July 31, 2011 working capital deficiency of $50,270.

QIS Capital Comments:
This is the company’s 5th consecutive profitable quarter and has established the recurring revenue stream from previous contracts. The fourth quarter is expected to show an incremental increase in revenues and earnings from the Transcendent Global acquisition. Virtutone has also dramatically improved its balance sheet over the past year and remains debt free with positive working. The company continues to work on a number of new developments which are expected to bolster the top and bottom lines in 2012.
