"Our increased revenues and gross profit was a result of our continued penetration within the hospitality industry and ability to increase our recurring revenues," said Mike Wasik, Roomlinx CEO.

Entering into this relationship with Hyatt represents what I believe to be an inflection point in Roomlinx's business and growth and is tangible evidence of the value our products deliver to hotel operators. Over the next 24 months we expect to install our platform in up to 60,000 Hyatt rooms. We are very excited to have been selected by Hyatt for this roll out."
Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2011 Operating Results:
Roomlinx's reported revenues for fourth quarter and full year ending December 31, 2011 were $2,013,442 and $6,223,925 respectively. Roomlinx's reported gross profit for fourth quarter and full year ending December 31, 2011 were $161,932 and $1,466,853 respectively. Both revenue and gross profit experienced an increase of 38% over 2010, reflecting our continued penetration within the hospitality sector.
The net loss for the fourth quarter and year ending December 31, 2011 was $839,485 and $2,652,189 respectively; compared to a net loss of $183,870 and $1,268,898 for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2010, respectively. While these losses are greater in 2011 than 2010, our cash provided by (used in) operations was $390,203 and ($970,731) for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2011, respectively, vs. $222,550 and ($1,614,450) for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2010, respectively. The overall decrease in cash used in operations in 2011 demonstrates Roomlinx's ability to leverage an increasing revenue stream to cover a substantial portion of our cost increment associated with management's decision to commit resources to the ramp-up of personnel and infrastructure required to service the Hyatt win and continued penetration within the hotel space.
