Results of Operations for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2017 Compared to the Three Months Ended March 31, 2016

We reported a net loss attributable to stockholders of $2,487,498, or $0.15 per share, for the three months ended March 31, 2017 as compared to a net loss attributable to stockholders of $1,847,719, or $0.16 per share, for the three months ended March 31, 2016. This resulted in an increase in net loss attributable to stockholders of $639,779 primarily as a result of higher general and administrative expenses and non-cash compensation expense offset by an improved gross margin.

Eliminating the effects of non-cash compensation, we reported an adjusted non-GAAP, Net loss attributable to Net Element, Inc. stockholders of $1,891,094 or $0.11 per share for the three months ended March 31, 2017 as compared to an adjusted non-GAAP, Net loss attributable to Net Element, Inc. stockholders of $1,486,735 or $0.13 per share for the three months ended March 31, 2016.

Net revenues consist primarily of payment processing fees. Net revenues were $13,561,941 for the three months ended March 31, 2017 as compared to $11,261,059 for the three months ended March 31, 2016. The increase in net revenue is primarily due to organic growth of merchants in our North American Transaction Solutions segment which resulted in an increase to North American Transaction Solutions segment revenue of $3,112,271, or 40% increase for the three months ended March 31, 2017 versus the three months ended March 31, 2016. Increases in our North American Transaction Solutions segment revenue were primarily due to a continued growth of SMB merchants with emphasis on value-added offerings. This was partially offset by a $1,136,511, or 57% decrease in our Mobile Solutions segment, as we continue to seek capital needed to prepay for content delivered through our platform as well as diversify to post-paid markets. Our Online Solutions segment revenue increased $325,122 (or 23%), from $1,414,907 for the three months ended March 31, 2016 to $1,740,029 for the three months ended March 31, 2017, primarily due to changes in foreign currency exchange rates. 

Cost of revenues represents direct costs of generating revenues, including commissions, mobile operator fees, purchases of short numbers, interchange expense and processing fees. Cost of revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2017 were $11,459,992 as compared to $9,385,241 for the three months ended March 31, 2016. The $2,074,751 increase in cost of revenues was primarily due to a $2,808,416 increase in our North American Transaction Solutions segment due to increased volume. There was also a $263,960 increase in cost of revenues resulting from our Online Solutions segment operations also due to increased volume. This was offset by a $997,625 decrease in our Mobile Solutions segment cost of revenues, which resulted from the decrease in sales for our Mobile Solutions segment for the three months ended March 31, 2017 versus the three months ended March 31, 2016.

Gross Margin for the three months ended March 31, 2017 was $2,101,949, or 15% of net revenue, as compared to $1,875,818, or 17% of net revenue, for the three months ended March 31, 2016. The $226,131 increase in gross margin was due to the increased volume of processing in our North American Transaction Solutions offset by a decrease of $138,886 in our Mobile Solutions margin caused from a decrease in business.

The following table sets forth our sources of revenues, cost of revenues and gross margins for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016:

The bonus is payable when cash flow of the business can support the payment.

We also saw an increase of $108,982 and $15,893, respectively, in our Online Solutions and Mobile Solutions segments which were primarily due to the Ruble exchange rate and to a lesser extent, salary increases.

Professional fees were $673,690 for the three months ended March 31, 2017 as compared to $524,387 for the three months ended March 31, 2016.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Regulation G Disclosure

To supplement its consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), the Company provides additional measures of its operating results by disclosing its adjusted net loss. Adjusted net loss is calculated as net loss excluding non-cash share based compensation and other one-time, non-recurring items not present in this year or last year results. Net Element discloses this amount on an aggregate and per share basis. These measures meet the definition of non-GAAP financial measures. The Company believes that application of these non-GAAP financial measures is appropriate to enhance the understanding of its historical performance through use of a metric that seeks to normalize period-to-period earnings.

This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures within the meaning of Regulation G promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Pursuant to Regulation G, a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures with the comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016 is presented in the following Non-GAAP Financial Measures Table.

These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, whether the Company will experience growth on a go forward basis, whether Net Element can secure any additional financing and if such additional financing will be adequate to meet the Company's objectives. All forward-looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements, many of which are generally outside the control of Net Element and are difficult to predict. Examples of such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: (i) Net Element's ability (or inability) to obtain additional financing in sufficient amounts or on acceptable terms when needed; (ii) Net Element's ability to maintain existing, and secure additional, contracts with users of its payment processing services; (iii) Net Element's ability to successfully expand in existing markets and enter new markets; (iv) Net Element's ability to successfully manage and integrate any acquisitions of businesses, solutions or technologies; (v) unanticipated operating costs, transaction costs and actual or contingent liabilities; (vi) the ability to attract and retain qualified employees and key personnel; (vii) adverse effects of increased competition on Net Element's business; (viii) changes in government licensing and regulation that may adversely affect Net Element's business; (ix) the risk that changes in consumer behavior could adversely affect Net Element's business; (x) Net Element's ability to protect its intellectual property; (xi) local, industry and general business and economic conditions; (xii) adverse effects of potentially deteriorating U.S.-Russia relations, including, without limitation, over a conflict related to Ukraine, including a risk of further U.S. government sanctions or other legal restrictions on U.S. businesses doing business in Russia. Additional factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements can be found in the most recent annual report on Form 10-K and the subsequently filed quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and current reports on Form 8-K filed by Net Element with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Net Element anticipates that subsequent events and developments may cause its plans, intentions and expectations to change. Net Element assumes no obligation, and it specifically disclaims any intention or obligation, to update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as expressly required by law.
