Liberator Medical Reports Record Annual Net Revenues of $60.9 Million for Fiscal Year Ended September 30, 2012

The Company Reports Net Income of $2.5 Million for the Year

STUART, FL--(Marketwire - December 24, 2012) -  Liberator Medical Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: LBMH) announced net revenues for fiscal year 2012 of $60,943,000, an increase of $8,245,000, or 15.6%, compared with sales of $52,698,000 for fiscal year 2011. The increase in sales was primarily due to the Company's continued direct response advertising campaign to acquire new customers and its emphasis on customer service to maximize the reorder rates for its recurring customer base. Liberator's direct response advertising expenditure for fiscal year 2012 was $13,113,000, compared to $15,245,000 for fiscal year 2011. For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012, the Company reported net revenues of $16,516,000, representing a 10.4% increase over third quarter 2012 net revenues of $14,961,000.

Net income for fiscal year 2012 increased by $2,242,000, or 866%, to $2,501,000, compared with fiscal year 2011 net income of $259,000. Net income for fiscal year 2011 included a $902,000 non-cash expense for the change in fair value of an embedded derivative, which was eliminated upon conversion of a convertible note during the first quarter of fiscal year 2011. The balance of the increase in net income was driven by increased sales volumes and improved operating margins during fiscal year 2012.

Financial Condition

The Company had cash of $3,326,000 at September 30, 2012, compared with $3,016,000 at September 30, 2011, an increase of $310,000. This increase in cash during fiscal year 2012 was primarily due to $1,000,000 of borrowings from its credit line facility, partially offset by $546,000 in net cash used in operating activities and $151,000 for purchases of property and equipment.

Cash used in operating activities in fiscal 2012 was $546,000, which represents an improvement of $3,947,000 compared with cash used in operating activities of $4,493,000 during fiscal year 2011. The improvement in operating cash flows during fiscal year 2012 was primarily driven by additional net income of $2,242,000, a reduction in direct response advertising spend of $2,132,000, partially offset by a decrease in changes in operating assets and liabilities of $449,000.

Mark Libratore, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated: "We are very proud of our financial performance during fiscal year 2012. We increased our sales by 15% over last year, reduced our customer acquisition costs, increased our operating margins, and improved our operating cash flows for 2012. We will continue to invest in new technology and implement process improvements during fiscal year 2013 that we believe will improve overall productivity and contribute to increased profitability, while providing excellent service to our growing customer base.

We expect to manage the levels of our direct response advertising spend to maximize profitability and cash flows for fiscal year 2013, which may result in slower top-line sales growth. Based on our financial results from fiscal year 2012, we expect to continue to improve operating margins and cash flows for fiscal year 2013."

We heard for many years how developing nations would be able to develop mobile-phone networks quickly, perhaps even leapfrog developed nations, because their lack of traditional, wired networks would not inhibit them from deploying the new technology. Now there is talk of history repeating itself with the Industrial Internet--a key aspect of the emerging Internet of Things. For example, Guo Ping, Deputy Chairman of the Board of Chinese electronics giant Huawei, said in a recent report from the World Economic Forum, "The Industrial Internet will afford emerging markets a unique opportunity ...

Containers and microservices have become topics of intense interest throughout the cloud developer and enterprise IT communities. Accordingly, attendees at the upcoming 16th Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York June 9-11 will find fresh new content in a new track called PaaS | Containers & Microservices Containers are not being considered for the first time by the cloud community, but a current era of re-consideration has pushed them to the top of the cloud agenda.

There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies. To make things even more challenging, requirements are getting more sophisticated, and the standard paradigm of supporting historical analytics queries is often just one facet of what is needed. As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immediate and actionable interpretation of events as they happen. Another aspect concerns how to deliver ...
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
So I guess we’ve officially entered a new era of lean and mean. I say this with the announcement of Ubuntu Snappy Core, “designed for lightweight cloud container hosts running Docker and for smart devices,” according to Canonical. “Snappy Ubuntu Core is the smallest Ubuntu available, designed for security and efficiency in devices or on the cloud.” This first version of Snappy Ubuntu Core features secure app containment and Docker 1.6 (1.5 in main release), is available on public clouds, and for ARM and x86 devices on several IoT boards. It’s a Trend! This announcement comes just as...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...

Discover how hardware commoditization, the ubiquitous nature of connectivity, and the emergence of Big Data a...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
