Artaflex Reports First Quarter Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 12/28/12 -- Artaflex Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ATF) ("Artaflex" or the "Company), a specialist at delivering integrated product solutions and support to the global technology and electronics industry, today reports unaudited first quarter financial results for the three-month period ended October 31, 2012.

Artaflex reports in U.S. dollars and all numbers below are expressed in thousands of U.S. dollars, except per share information and gross margin percentages.

The financial statements for the first quarter ended October 31, 2012, including required comparative information, have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board ("IASB").

Further information is available on the Company's website at www.artaflex.com and the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval ("SEDAR) at www.sedar.com.

Q1 2013 Financial Highlights:

Sales increased 79.2% to $6,510 in the first quarter of 2013 compared to $3,632 in 2012, primarily due to the acquisition of Adeptron in March 2012. For the quarter, sales to the Company's four largest customers represented an aggregate of 54% (2012 - 72%) of the Company's total sales.

Gross profit decreased $195, to $881 compared to $1,076 in the same period of 2012. Gross profit as a percentage of sales was 13.5% compared to 29.6% for the same period in 2012. 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.

Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A) expense increased 86.0% to $1,408 compared to $757 for the same quarter in 2012. The increase was primarily due to one-time legal and professional costs associated with the terminated acquisition of MTI International, Inc. SG&A expense as a percentage of sales was 21.6%, comparable to 20.8% in 2012.

The net loss and comprehensive loss was $906 compared to a net income of $467 in the first quarter of 2012.

Adjusted EBITDA loss was $312 compared to an adjusted EBITDA income of $467 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.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
