Cyberplex Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/14/12 -- Cyberplex Inc. (TSX:CX) a leader in data-driven advertising and targeted media platforms, today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012. Total revenue from continuing operations for the quarter was $3.5 million, an increase from the $3.1 million recorded in the same quarter of 2011, and adjusted EBITDA loss for the quarter was approximately $332,000 as compared to a loss of $593,000 in the same period of 2011. The loss from continuing operations for the period was $522,000 as compared to a net loss of $596,000 for the same quarter of 2011.

Highlights for the Third Quarter ended September 30, 2012


--  At September 30, the Company had cash on hand of $5.4 million and no
    debt 
--  Third quarter revenue from continuing operations increased by 12% as
    compared with the same period of 2011 
--  Key investments were made in the core advertising platform, resulting in
    two large agency clients added in the quarter 
--  Exclusive content and data partnerships were established to further the
    Company's mobile and social media capabilities 

"With a stronger balance sheet, we were able to make meaningful investments in the quarter that will help accelerate our growth," said Geoffrey Rotstein, President and CEO of Cyberplex. "Our experience in building and operating large scale advertising platforms that analyze and process massive amounts of data has made our core advertising platform among the most innovative and high performing in the industry," added Rotstein. "We are already winning key accounts away from some of the larger players, and with the investments we are making, we will continue to innovate and lead this market."

Normal Course Issuer Bid and Automatic Share Purchase Plan:

On April 24, 2012, the Company announced a Normal Course Issuer Bid ("Issuer Bid") under which it could purchase up to 11,913,232 of its common shares, representing approximately 10% of the "public float" of common shares, commencing on May 14, 2012 for a period of one year. The daily limit for repurchases under the Issuer Bid is 40,721 shares, in accordance with Toronto Stock Exchange approval of the Issuer Bid. As of the date of filing, the Company has repurchased and cancelled 667,047 of its common shares under the Issuer Bid.

Today, the Company also announced receipt of TSX approval with respect to its request to establish an automatic share purchase plan (the "Plan") for its common shares. The Plan was established to provide standard instructions regarding how the Company's common shares are to be purchased under the Issuer Bid, subject to pre-established parameters. During the term of the Plan, the Company will not communicate any material undisclosed information to the trading staff of the broker appointed under the Plan; accordingly, the broker may make purchases regardless of whether a trading blackout period is in effect or whether there is material undisclosed information about the Company at the time that purchases are made under the Plan. Pursuant to the terms of the Plan, provided that the Company is neither in possession of material undisclosed information relating to the Company nor in a trading blackout period, the Company shall have the ability to authorize the broker to make purchases outside of the pre-established price limits. The Plan will commence on November 19, 2012 and terminate together with the Issuer Bid on May 13, 2013.

The Plan constitutes an automatic plan for the purposes of applicable Canadian securities legislation and has been reviewed and approved by the TSX. In the event that the Plan is materially varied, suspended or terminated, the Company will issue a press release advising of such variation, suspension or termination, as applicable.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures

This press release includes a discussion of "Adjusted EBITDA," which is a non-IFRS financial measure. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net loss from operations before; (a) depreciation of property and equipment and amortization of intangible assets; (b) stock-based payments, (c) restructuring and acquisition costs, (d) impairments of goodwill and intangible assets and other items, net. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of the Company's operating performance because it provides information related to the Company's ability to provide operating cash flows for acquisitions, capital expenditures and working capital requirements. The Company also believes that analysts and investors use Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure to evaluate the overall operating performance of companies in its industry.

The non-IFRS financial measure is used in addition to and in conjunction with results presented in accordance with the Company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with IFRS and should not be relied upon to the exclusion of IFRS financial measures. Management strongly encourages investors to review the Company's consolidated financial statements in their entirety and to not rely on any single financial measure. Because non-IFRS financial measures are not standardized, it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies' non-IFRS financial measures having the same or similar names. In addition, the Company expects to continue to incur expenses similar to the non-IFRS adjustments described above, and exclusion of these items from the Company's non-IFRS measures should not be construed as an inference that these costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring.

There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices – computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors – connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo in Silicon Valley. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be!
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
