Hauppauge Digital Reports Fiscal 2012 Fourth Quarter And Year End Results

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., Jan. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hauppauge Digital Inc. (NASDAQ: HAUP), a leading developer of digital video TV and data broadcast receiver products for personal computers, today reported financial results for the fourth fiscal quarter and year ended September 30, 2012.

FOURTH QUARTER RESULTS

Net sales were $8.7 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 compared to $10.3 million reported for the previous year's fourth fiscal quarter.

The Company incurred a net loss of $1,613,219 for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 compared to a net loss of $2,075,730 for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011.  Net loss per share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 was $0.16 on a basic and diluted basis, compared to a net loss per share of $0.21 on a basic and diluted basis for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011. 

FISCAL YEAR RESULTS

Net sales were $44.6 million for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2012 compared to $42.3 million reported for fiscal year ended September 30, 2011.

The Company incurred a net loss of $2,543,450 for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2012 compared to a net loss of $5,849,072 for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2011.  Net loss per share for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2012 was $0.25 on a basic and diluted basis, compared to a net loss per share of $0.58 on a basic and diluted basis for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2011. 

DISCUSSION OF RESULTS

Ken Plotkin, Hauppauge's Chief Executive Officer stated, "Led by increased sales of our USB-Live and HD PVR video recorder and video streaming products, worldwide sales for fiscal 2012 increased by 8.2% before the negative effect caused by the decline in the Euro. Taking into account the 2.8% decline in the Euro, our net sales increased 5.4% in fiscal 2012 compared with fiscal 2011.

As a result of reduced expenses and headcount, which the company implemented in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011, our selling, general and administrative expenses declined by 16.8% from fiscal 2011.  The combination of increased sales and reduced expenses allowed Hauppauge to reduce our loss approximately 56.52% compared to fiscal 2011.

At the Gamescon show in Cologne, Germany in August 2012, Hauppauge introduced a new gaming recorder designed to allow console and PC gaming enthusiasts to record video game play from the Microsoft Xbox 360 and the Sony Playstation 3. Called the HD PVR 2, this new game recorder was designed to provide new features compared with the original HD PVR high definition video recorder. HD PVR 2 was shipped to our customers starting in September 2012.

In anticipation of the launch of the new HD PVR 2, in fiscal Q4 we reduced prices and limited the sales of the original HD PVR in order to reduce channel inventory.  The effect of price reductions and limited shipments of the original HD PVR dampened our fourth fiscal quarter sales."

"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
