Symbility Solutions Reports Record Revenue of $4.9 Million in Q3 2012

Year Over Year Quarterly Revenue Doubles, Adjusted EBITDA Triples

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/16/12 -- Symbility Solutions Inc.® (the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:SY), a leading provider of cloud-based claims technology for the insurance industry, today reported that revenue increased to approximately $4.9 million for the three months ending September 30, 2012, up 144% from $2.0 million in the comparable period in 2011.

Net loss for the three months ending September 30, 2012 was $159,000 or ($0.00) per share on a basic and fully diluted basis. This compares to a net income of approximately $88,000 in the same period last year or earnings per share of $0.00 on a basic and fully diluted basis.

At September 30, 2012, the Corporation held $2.7 million in cash and cash equivalents (net of debt of $112,000 owed on a capital lease).

Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ending September 30, 2012 was $469,000 compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $146,000 in the same period last year. The Corporation believes Adjusted EBITDA(1) is also a useful measure as a proxy for operating cash flow and facilitates period-to-period operating comparisons. We believe Adjusted EBITDA is useful to an investor in evaluating our operating performance because it helps investors more meaningfully evaluate and compare the results of our operations from period to period, by removing the impact of our asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization), transaction related expenses and actions that do not affect liquidity (stock-based compensation expense and non-cash impairments) from our operating results.

"This quarter was primarily focused on the MSB integration and resource strengthening to build scale into our operations. While the effort is ongoing, we have effectively absorbed the staff, systems, contracts and offices of the MSB claims division and are operating as one fluid entity already," states James Swayze, Chief Executive Officer, Symbility Solutions Inc. "We are very proud of the fact that we have added two additional offices and more than doubled our staff over the last two quarters, and still managed to post an EBITDA three times higher than the same period last year. We now have a solid foundation in our infrastructure from which to rapidly grow our top and bottom line into next year and beyond."

Today’s connected world is moving from devices towards things, what this means is that by using increasingly low cost sensors embedded in devices we can create many new use cases. These span across use cases in cities, vehicles, home, offices, factories, retail environments, worksites, health, logistics, and health. These use cases rely on ubiquitous connectivity and generate massive amounts of data at scale. These technologies enable new business opportunities, ways to optimize and automate, along with new ways to engage with users.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
“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.

The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.
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...
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT.
You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
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.
