HEI, Inc. Announces Third Quarter 2012 Results

HEI, Inc. (Pink Sheets: HEII) (http://www.heii.com) today announced its financial results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2012, which ended September 29, 2012.

Sales for the third quarter were $9,882,000, compared to $9,221,000 for the third quarter of 2011. The Company generated a net loss of ($503,000) for the third quarter of 2012 compared to net income of $162,000 for the same period in 2011. Sales for the first nine months of 2012 were $28,595,000, compared to $28,215,000 for the first nine months of 2011. The Company generated a year-to-date net loss of ($1,012,000) for 2012 compared to a net income of $686,000 for the first nine months of 2011.

Sales were up 7.2% year-over-year in the third quarter as a result of increases in our Victoria operation which was partially offset by decreased sales in our other two operating divisions. Gross margins were down on a consolidated basis with Victoria gross margins improving as a result of improved efficiencies associated with the increased sales volumes while the other two operating divisions’ gross margins declined as a result of product mix changes and the lower sales levels as compared to the prior year. The net loss for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 included an increase to our reserve for inventory obsolescence of $380,000, which had no cash impact during the quarter.

“Increasing sales continues to be our focus and product demand and customer backlogs are strong in our Victoria plant, and our Tempe and Boulder divisions are working to increase sales penetration,” commented HEI CEO, Mark B. Thomas.

Also during the third quarter, Thomas Leahy resigned from the board of directors for personal reasons, and Timothy Floeder was elected to the board of directors. Mr. Leahy continues to be a significant shareholder of HEI.

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.

Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs.

DevOps Summit 2015 New York, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT.

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
