Bluedrop Releases Year End Financial Results and Clarifies Impact to Same and Prior Year Annual and Quarterly Results

Revenues up 14% Year over Year; Continues Investment in Growth Opportunities

St. John’s, Newfoundland CANADA, January 28, 2014 /FSC/ – Bluedrop Performance Learning Inc. (BPL – TSX Venture), today reported its audited financial results for the year ended September 30, 2013 and provided information on the impact of certain revenue recognition adjustments at year end on same and prior year annual and quarterly financial statements previously filed.

The revenues for the year ended September 30, 2013 were $11,527,765 up from $10,118,532, an increase of 14%. Gross profit for the year was $5,521,594 up from $5,017,726, an increase of 10%. Pre-tax loss for the year was $2,300,416 versus pre-tax earnings in the prior year of $96,025, a decrease of $2,396,441. After tax loss for the period was $1,723,610 as compared to loss of $19,827 in the prior period. For further details, please see the Financial Statements and Management’s Discussion and Analysis for the year ended September 30, 2013, which are available on the Company’s web site at http://www.bluedrop.com or on SEDAR at http://www.sedar.com.

During the fiscal year ended September 30, 2013, the Company reviewed its accounting policies for revenue recognition in the CoursePark Learning Services business unit under multiple-element arrangements. As a result of the review, management has determined that the Company’s accounting for perpetual licenses under IFRS as presented in previously issued financial statements was not in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. In previously reported financial statements such revenues were recognized immediately given an indefinite useful life. In the restated financial statements, management has estimated a useful life based on factors specific to individual licensing arrangements. Revenue is recognized on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful life. A more detailed explanation and reconciliation is included in Management’s Discussion and Analysis.

The impact of the above adjustments to revenue and related tax impact has been reflected in the comparative financial results for the prior year in the financial statements for the year ended September 30, 2013. Several line items in the first three quarterly financial statements for the year and in the financial statements for the previous year were restated based on the closing of the accounts for the year ended September 30, 2013. This will require the three previous quarters for 2013 to be restated for comparison purposes going forward. The previously reported quarterly results will be restated in the comparative results when the Company reports its quarterly financial results for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2014.

The following tables summarize the impact of the above transactions on the interim statements of comprehensive income (loss) and basic and fully diluted earnings per share for the previous two fiscal periods as filed on SEDAR.
