-- Total revenues of $3,628,000, an increase of $55,000 or 2% from $3,573,000 last year. -- Total gross margin of $1,428,000 or 39% of revenue, an increase of $76,000 or 6% from $1,352,000 or 38% of revenue last year. -- Total operating expense of $1,309,000, a decrease of $22,000 or 2% from $1,331,000 last year. -- Net income of $45,000, an increase of $88,000 from a net loss of $43,000 last year. -- Income per share of $0.01 compared to a loss per share of $0.01 last year. -- EBITDA of $462,000, an increase of $105,000 or 29% from $357,000 last year.
"Higher revenues, improved gross margin and lower operating costs all contributed to positive financial results for the quarter," said Charles Buehler, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ORMI. "As a result, net income was $45,000 for the quarter, an increase of $88,000, and EBITDA was $462,000, an increase of $105,000 or 29%. This performance was achieved in spite of the significant one-time legal and other corporate costs which were incurred as part of the proceedings related to the potential sale of the Company, as announced on October 17, 2012."
Total revenues were $3,628,000, an increase of $55,000 or 2% over Q1 2012 revenues, mainly due to a 2% volume increase in residuals collected from customers. Gross margin was $1,428,000, an increase of $76,000 or 6%, to 39% as a percentage of revenues compared to 38% for Q1 2012. Total operating expense was $1,309,000 for the quarter, a decrease of $22,000 or 2% from Q1 2012. Operating expense includes approximately $78,000 in one-time legal and other corporate costs related to the potential sale of the Company. Interest expense was $58,000 for the quarter, a decrease of $6,000 or 10% from Q1 2012.

Non-IFRS financial measures are used by management to evaluate the performance of the Company. Non-IFRS financial measures do not have any meaning prescribed by IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other reporting issuers.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...

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.

For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.

Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products.

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
