Total revenue increased 9.6% year over year and 6.4% quarter over quarter due to VRX Studios' strengthening client base, it's broadening service offering, and MediaValet's growing licensing stream. Gross profit, EBTIDA and net income decreased over both time frames due to increased investment in operations, sales and marketing, research and development, and corporate development activities; and higher financing costs.

"Throughout 2013 we invested in the foundation of our business, successfully growing several new service offerings, nurturing a new brand, and attracting new investors who share our vision for the future," commented David MacLaren, President and CEO of VRX Worldwide. "With the ongoing improvement in the global economy, demand from VRX Studios' 13,000 hotel customers continued to strengthen, our new service initiatives generated higher returns, and version 2.0 of MediaValet helped us land many new customers in a variety of industries across North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia."

The full financial statements and related MD&A are now available on the Company's website (www.vrxworldwide.com) and on SEDAR (www.sedar.com).
