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.

"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.

As enterprises capture more and more data of all types – structured, semi-structured, and unstructured – data discovery requirements for business intelligence (BI), Big Data, and predictive analytics initiatives grow more complex. A company’s ability to become data-driven and compete on analytics depends on the speed with which it can provision their analytics applications with all relevant information. The task of finding data has traditionally resided with IT, but now organizations increasingly turn towards data source discovery tools to find the right data, in context, for business users, d...
Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in.

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company?
