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."

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...

"We work in the area of Big Data analytics and Big Data analytics is a very crowded space - you have Hadoop, ETL, warehousing, visualization and there's a lot of effort trying to get these tools to talk to each other," explained Mukund Deshpande, head of the Analytics practice at Accelerite, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...

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.
