Third Quarter 2012 Results:
For the third quarter ended September 30, 2012, total revenue increased to $1.77 million, compared to total revenue of ($5,726) in the third quarter of 2011. This growth is attributable to gaining majority ownership in our first three South African restaurants on September 30, 2011, at which point we began consolidating our South African Hooters operations, effective October 1, 2011. This growth is also attributable to opening our Emperor's Palace, South Africa and Budapest, Hungary locations in 2012, where our Emperor's Palace continues to be a success and profitable. Also, The Company's Campbelltown, Australia location, where Chanticleer owns 49%, became profitable during the third quarter, generating $68,000 in net income.
For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, total revenue increased to $4.9 million as compared to $468,417 in the same period last year, due to consolidating our South African operations, effective October 1, 2011 and opening our Emperor's Palace, South Africa and Budapest, Hungary locations in 2012.
The Company reported a net loss of $739,766 or $0.20 per share and a net loss of $495,756 or $0.40 per share during the three-month period ended September 30, 2012 and September 30, 2011, respectively. The increase in net loss is due to increased expenses associated with the consolidation of our South African restaurant operations, effective October of 2011 and our continued expansion of our international footprint, where during the third quarter, the Company incurred approximately $126,000 in one-time expenses related to opening the Hooters Budapest location. The Company closed the September Quarter with cash and cash equivalents of $1.7 million.
The independent investigation by the Company's Audit Committee is nearing completion. No other findings of misconduct have been identified that have not previously been publicly disclosed. However, the independent investigation did identify certain weaknesses in internal controls and the Company is in the process of implementing a remediation plan.
The Company is continuing to provide the NASDAQ Staff with all information requested in a timely manner. However, at this time we are not able to provide guidance as to when trading will resume. The Company intends to continue to inform investors of any material developments in a timely manner.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies.

These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality.

The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

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) i...
