Versatile Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal 2012 Results

VANCOUVER, CANADA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/28/12 -- Versatile Systems Inc. (TSX VENTURE:VV) announces its results for the fourth quarter and the 2012 fiscal year.

Revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2012 was $8,832,150 generating a gross profit of $1,942,201 or 22.0% of sales compared to $10,180,289 generating a gross profit of $2,381,728 or 23.4% of sales for the same quarter last year. The Loss from Operations for the quarter amounted to $390,775 compared to $302,775 for the same quarter last year. As a result of the performance of the U.S. Eastern operations, management determined that the goodwill related to the original acquisition of Perfect Order was impaired. Further a provision should also be recorded against the Deferred income tax assets for the U.S. operations. Consequently, Versatile Systems Inc. ("Versatile" or "the Company") recorded non-cash expenses of $7,195,380 for the Goodwill impairment and a write-down of Deferred income taxes in the amount of $6,319,821. The Company also recorded $105,875 for the equity loss relating to the Investment in Equus. As a result the Net Loss for the quarter amounted to $14,075,239 ($0.09 per share) compared to the Net Loss of $438,131 ($0.00 per share) for the same period last year.

Highlights for the quarter included:

The research and development expense for the quarter amounted to $208,356 compared to $210,996 for the same quarter last year.

The Loss from Operations for the year amounted to $1,092,841 compared to $68,550 for the previous year. As a result of the performance of the U.S. Eastern operations, management determined that the goodwill related to the original acquisition of Perfect Order was impaired. Further a provision should also be recorded against the Deferred income tax assets for the U.S. operations. Consequently, the Company recorded non-cash items of $7,195,380 for the Goodwill impairment and a write-down of Deferred income tax assets in the amount of $6,120,189. The Company also recorded $220,412 for the equity loss relating to the Investment in Equus. As a result the Net Loss for the period amounted to $14,717,158 ($0.09 per share) compared to Net Loss of $255,770 ($0.00 per share) for the same period last year.

The Company adopted IFRS in the first quarter of the current fiscal year. The Company has applied the transitional exceptions and exemptions to full retroactive application of IFRS in its preparation of an opening IFRS consolidated statement of financial position at July 1, 2010. Further details of the conversion to IFRS are provided in Management's Discussion and Analysis and in the Notes to the Company's audited Consolidated Financial Statements for the year ended June 30, 2012.

The Company has a 9.2% interest in Equus Total Return, Inc. (Equus), which is a public company trading on the NYSE under the symbol EQS. The Company is deemed to exert significant influence by virtue of having four Board members in common as well as a senior executive in common. Significant influence was reached when the four directors were elected to the Equus Board in May 2010 and the senior executive was appointed in June 2010.

Equus applies generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("US GAAP") and is not required to consolidate portfolio company investments, including those in which Equus has a controlling interest. However, under IFRS Equus is required to consolidate investments in which it has a controlling interest and equity account for those investments Equus significantly influenced. The Company prepared consolidated financial statements for Equus as at June 30, 2012 in accordance with IFRS. The Company is unable to obtain information for dates prior to June 30, 2012 that would allow the preparation of financial information for Equus that fully reflect the impact of these differences between US GAAP and IFRS. As a result, Versatile Systems Inc. was unable to determine whether any adjustments were necessary to the carrying value of its investment in Equus as at June 30, 2011 and July 1, 2010 or the equity method income (loss) for the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011.

As a result of the foregoing the Company's auditors could not issue an unqualified Auditors Report to accompany the Company's June 30, 2012 consolidated financial statements. As applicable legislation does not permit such a qualification, the Company had to seek exemptive relief under National Instrument 52-107 from the British Columbia Securities Commission and the Ontario Securities Commission (collectively "the Regulators"). The Regulators granted this relief with a Decision dated November 20, 2012, which permits the Company's auditors to issue their Auditors Report with a qualified opinion. The Decision also permits the Company's auditors to qualify their Auditors Report to accompany the Company's June 30, 2013 consolidated financial statements is so far as those statements relate to comparative information for the year ended June 30, 2012.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
