PNI Digital Media Reports Fiscal 2012 Full Year and Fourth Quarter Financial Results

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/07/13 -- PNI Digital Media (TSX:PN)(OTCBB:PNDMF) ("PNI" or the "Company"), the leading innovator in digital media solutions for retailers, reported financial results for the fiscal 2012 full year and fourth quarter ended September 30th, 2012 and discussed key operational development for the year.

"This past year we evolved the Company to position ourselves for the future markets we believe are integral to the growth of PNI," said Kyle Hall, Chief Executive Officer of PNI Digital Media. "As we saw in the past, once the investments were made we turned our focus to rolling out customers and improving operational efficiencies. We have a proven track record in these aspects of the business and will utilize these strengths to further the ambitions of the Company. Furthermore, we plan to continue to invest in driving strong organic growth with our retail partners, who in aggregate transacted $236.2 million in online sales over our platform this year."

    Corporation. 
--  Launched a new series of mobile apps with Tesco, Costco, Sam's Club and
    CVS/pharmacy. 
--  Announced second generation of PNI Connected Kiosk(TM) software. 
--  Launched a new business printing website with Costco Wholesale Canada

    behalf of our retail partners, an improvement of 4.9% from the same
    period last year. 
--  Processed a record 19.1 million transactions over the PNI Digital Media
    Platform, an improvement of 4% from the same period last year.

Fiscal 2012 Full Year Financial Highlights


--  Revenue for the year of $22.7 million compared to $23.7 million in
    fiscal 2011. The majority of change in year on year revenue was due to a
    $0.7 million decrease in one-time software installation fees from the
    previous year. 
--  Transactional revenue was $17.7million, compared to $18.1M for the same
    period last year. 
--  Transactional revenue comprised 78% of total revenue for the year. 
--  Generated a loss after income taxes of $4.1 million for the year,
    compared to a profit of $1.1 million in fiscal 2011. $1.8 million of the
    loss resulted from the Company recording income tax expense, compared to
    the recognition of an income tax recovery of $1.3 million during fiscal
    2011. 
--  Also contributing to the current period loss was non-cash impairment
    charges of $77,000 and $540,000 recorded in relation to our goodwill and
    intangible assets. These non-cash charges relate primarily to
    underperforming revenues associated with previously capitalized costs
    for our social stationery product offering, as well as changes in
    estimates in relation to the recoverability of goodwill. 
--  Generated non-IFRS adjusted EBITDA1 of $1.5 million, compared to $3.6
    million in fiscal 2011. 
--  The Company ended the year with $4.6 million in cash and cash
    equivalents and no debt.

Notes:

1 - Non-IFRS Measures

The Company continues to provide all information required in accordance with IFRS, but believes evaluating its ongoing operating results may not be as useful if an investor is limited to reviewing only IFRS financial measures. Accordingly, the Company uses non-IFRS financial information to evaluate its ongoing operations and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. The primary non-IFRS financial measures utilized by the Company include adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA is non-IFRS financial measure which the Company defines as net profit plus amortization, impairment, interest expense, tax expense, share-based compensation expense and unrealized foreign exchange loss (gain).

To supplement the Company's financial statements presented on an IFRS basis, we believe that these non-IFRS measures provide useful information about the Company's core operating results and thus are appropriate to enhance the overall understanding of the Company's past financial performance and its prospects for the future. These adjustments to the Company's IFRS results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of the Company's underlying operational results and trends and performance. Management uses these non-IFRS measures to evaluate the Company's financial results, develop budgets, manage expenditures, and determine employee compensation. The presentation of additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for or superior to net (loss) earnings or net (loss) earnings per share determined in accordance with IFRS.

The IoT market is projected to be $1.9 trillion tidal wave that’s bigger than the combined market for smartphones, tablets and PCs. While IoT is widely discussed, what not being talked about are the monetization opportunities that are created from ubiquitous connectivity and the ensuing avalanche of data. While we cannot foresee every service that the IoT will enable, we should future-proof operations by preparing to monetize them with extremely agile systems.
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. Learn about IoT, Big Data and deployments processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.

PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add scalable realtime functionality with minimal effort and cost.”
The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...
“In the past year we've seen a lot of stabilization of WebRTC. You can now use it in production with a far greater degree of certainty. A lot of the real developments in the past year have been in things like the data channel, which will enable a whole new type of application," explained Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...
DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
For years, we’ve relied too heavily on individual network functions or simplistic cloud controllers. However, they are no longer enough for today’s modern cloud data center. Businesses need a comprehensive platform architecture in order to deliver a complete networking suite for IoT environment based on OpenStack. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dhiraj Sehgal from PLUMgrid will discuss what a holistic networking solution should really entail, and how to build a complete platform that is scalable, secure, agile and automated.
We’re no longer looking to the future for the IoT wave. It’s no longer a distant dream but a reality that has arrived.

The deep industry expertise behind this presentation will provide attendees with a leading edge view of rapidly emerging IoT oppor...
In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
