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."

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes.

Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
