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.

Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, director/senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications?

Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...

As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
