CVD Announces 3 and 9 Month Results

(NASDAQ: CVVNews) CVD Equipment Corporation, a leading provider of custom chemical vapor deposition systems, today announced its financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012.

Having determined that larger quarters were required to facilitate the growth of CVD, First Nano and the Application Laboratory, the Company is replacing its two Long Island buildings with a new building (also on Long Island) which will double the facility size to 130,000 square feet. As a result of management focusing its efforts to relocate to the new facility in Central Islip, New York, revenue, net income and backlog for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 have all decreased compared to the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011.

Revenue for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $4,696,000 and $18,945,000 respectively, compared to $8,844,000 and $22,558,000 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011. Net income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $180,000 and $1,229,000, or $0.03 per share both basic and diluted for the three month period and $0.21 per share basic and $0.20 per share diluted for the nine month period respectively. This is compared to $1,239,000 and $2,704,000, $.21 per share basic and $0.20 diluted for the three month period ended September 30, 2011 and $0.51 per share basic and $0.49 per share diluted for the nine months ended September 30, 2011. Our backlog at September 30, 2012 was $8,692,000 compared to $16,198,000 at December 31, 2011.

The building that housed CVD’s Application Laboratory was sold in April, 2012, resulting in a capital loss of approximately $694,000 or $0.12 per share pre-tax for the current nine month period. Sale of the 2nd building currently housing CVD/First Nano is in contract, expected to generate a capital gain, and scheduled to close on or around December 31, 2012. The Company anticipates the net effect of these two real estate transactions, when completed, will result in an overall net capital gain.

In addition to the condensed statement of operations in accordance with GAAP, we have included a pro-forma statement of income from operations excluding the effect of the capital loss on the sale of the building which housed the Application Laboratory.

Leonard Rosenbaum, President and Chief Executive Officer stated, “Starting in Q2 we re-directed some of our manpower toward the new facility into which we will start moving shortly. In Q3 we expanded our sales effort with additional representatives, sales assistants, and direct sales personnel. Although we have allowed our backlog to decrease to a more manageable level to ease the transition into our new quarters, based on the continuing high level of interest in our products, we are confident that orders will increase in 2013. Space limitations in our current facility hindered our ability to take on larger size orders, expand overall production and add additional engineering and management personnel to support our growth. The new 2 times larger facility will enable our growth to continue both in equipment and materials with no significant increase in operating costs.”

Organizations already struggle with the simple collection of data resulting from the proliferation of IoT, lacking the right infrastructure to manage it. They can't only rely on the cloud to collect and utilize this data because many applications still require dedicated infrastructure for security, redundancy, performance, etc. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Emil Sayegh, CEO of Codero Hosting, will discuss how in order to resolve the inherent issues, companies need to combine dedicated and cloud solutions through hybrid hosting – a sustainable solution for the data required to manage I...
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, will look at different existing uses of peer-to-peer data sharing and how it can become useful in a live session to...

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...

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software upd...
Nowadays, a large number of sensors and devices are connected to the network.

WebRTC: together these advances have created a perfect storm of technologies that are disrupting and transforming classic communications models and ecosystems. In his session at WebRTC Summit, Cary Bran, VP of Innovation and New Ventures at Plantronics and PLT Labs, will provide an overview of this technological shift, including associated business and consumer communications impacts, and opportunities it may enable, complement or entirely transform.
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, will introduce the technologies required for implementing these ideas and some early experiments performed in the Kurento open source software community in areas ...
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? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, will discuss the impact of technology on identity. Should we federate, or not? How should identity be secured? Who owns the identity? How is identity ...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
WebRTC converts the entire network into a ubiquitous communications cloud thereby connecting anytime, anywhere through any point. In his session at WebRTC Summit,, Mark Castleman, EIR at Bell Labs and Head of Future X Labs, will discuss how the transformational nature of communications is achieved through the democratizing force of WebRTC. WebRTC is doing for voice what HTML did for web content.
