Sales increased 11.0% to $20,983 in 2012 compared to $18,899 in 2011. For the year 2011, sales to the Company's four largest customers represented an aggregate of 57% (2011 - 77%) of the Company's total sales. Sales attributed to the purchase of Adeptron accounted for an estimated increase of $9,371. The stand-alone Artaflex sales declined by approximately $6,000 due primarily to the loss of a large customer in 2012. Sales for the fourth quarter of 2012 of $6,733 increased 70.6% from $3,947 for the same period in 2011, primarily due to the acquisition of Adeptron in 2012.

Gross profit for the year decreased $1,996 or 42.5% to $2,700 compared to $4,696 for the year 2011. Gross profit, expressed as a percentage of sales for the year 2012, declined to 12.9% compared to 24.8% for 2011. The decrease in gross profit for the year is primarily due to the acquisition of Adeptron which historically has lower gross profit percentages and due to duplicate costs during the period of integration of the two Markham facilities. Management has and continues in its efforts to improve gross profits through cost reduction and effectively utilizing the synergies from the Adeptron acquisition. Gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2012 decreased $340, to $242 compared with $582 in the same period of 2011. Gross profit as a percentage of sales for the fourth quarter of 2012 was 3.6% compared to 14.7% for the same period in 2011. The decrease in gross profit and percentage in the quarter is largely due to the acquisition of Adeptron which historically had a lower gross profit and the incurrence of duplicate costs during the period of integration of the two Markham facilities.

Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expense for the year 2012 increased 129.2% to $5,918 compared to $2,582 for the year 2011. The increase was primarily due to one-time legal and professional costs associated with the acquisition of Adeptron and the attempt at another acquisition which subsequently was terminated. In addition, Artaflex incurred significant professional fees in order to switch from a private company to a public entity. SG&A expenses as a percentage of sales was 28.2% up from 13.7% in 2011. SG&A expenses increased $1,252 to $2,357 in the fourth quarter compared to $1,105 for the same period in 2011. The increase in SG&A expense for the fourth quarter was largely due to the one-time costs associated with the Adeptron acquisition and the terminated acquisition. Overall the percentage of SG&A as a percentage of sales for the fourth quarter of 2012 was 35.0% up from 28.0% for the same period in 2011.

The net loss and comprehensive loss in 2012 was $4,361 compared to a net income of $937 in 2011. Net loss for the fourth quarter 2012 was $2,942 compared to a net loss of $341 for the same period of 2011.

Adjusted EBITDA loss was $2,208 in 2012 compared to adjusted EBITDA income of $2,244 in 2011. During the fourth quarter of 2012 adjusted EBITDA loss was $1,471 compared with a loss of $345 in the same period last year.

EBITDA means earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA means earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation and restructuring costs. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not recognized measures under IFRS. However, management believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as herein defined are useful supplemental measures to net income (loss), as it provides investors with an indication of cash earnings prior to debt service, capital expenditures, income taxes and other non-recurring and non-cash items. Readers should be cautioned, however, that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an alternative to net income (loss) determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles as an indicator of the Company's performance or to cash flows from operating, investing and financing activities as a measure of liquidity and cash flows. The Company's method of calculating EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may differ from the methods by which other companies calculate EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA and, accordingly, the EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA used herein may not be comparable to measures used by other companies.
