VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/07/13 -- PNI Digital Media (TSX:PN)(OTCBB:PNDMF) ("PNI" or the "Company"), the leading innovator in digital media solutions for retailers, reported financial results for the fiscal 2012 full year and fourth quarter ended September 30th, 2012 and discussed key operational development for the year.

"This past year we evolved the Company to position ourselves for the future markets we believe are integral to the growth of PNI," said Kyle Hall, Chief Executive Officer of PNI Digital Media. "As we saw in the past, once the investments were made we turned our focus to rolling out customers and improving operational efficiencies. We have a proven track record in these aspects of the business and will utilize these strengths to further the ambitions of the Company. Furthermore, we plan to continue to invest in driving strong organic growth with our retail partners, who in aggregate transacted $236.2 million in online sales over our platform this year."

    Corporation.

    period last year. 
--  Processed a record 19.1 million transactions over the PNI Digital Media
    Platform, an improvement of 4% from the same period last year.

Fiscal 2012 Full Year Financial Highlights


--  Revenue for the year of $22.7 million compared to $23.7 million in
    fiscal 2011. The majority of change in year on year revenue was due to a
    $0.7 million decrease in one-time software installation fees from the
    previous year. 
--  Transactional revenue was $17.7million, compared to $18.1M for the same
    period last year. 
--  Transactional revenue comprised 78% of total revenue for the year. 
--  Generated a loss after income taxes of $4.1 million for the year,
    compared to a profit of $1.1 million in fiscal 2011. $1.8 million of the
    loss resulted from the Company recording income tax expense, compared to
    the recognition of an income tax recovery of $1.3 million during fiscal
    2011. 
--  Also contributing to the current period loss was non-cash impairment
    charges of $77,000 and $540,000 recorded in relation to our goodwill and
    intangible assets. These non-cash charges relate primarily to
    underperforming revenues associated with previously capitalized costs
    for our social stationery product offering, as well as changes in
    estimates in relation to the recoverability of goodwill. 
--  Generated non-IFRS adjusted EBITDA1 of $1.5 million, compared to $3.6
    million in fiscal 2011. 
--  The Company ended the year with $4.6 million in cash and cash

Notes:

1 - Non-IFRS Measures

The Company continues to provide all information required in accordance with IFRS, but believes evaluating its ongoing operating results may not be as useful if an investor is limited to reviewing only IFRS financial measures. Accordingly, the Company uses non-IFRS financial information to evaluate its ongoing operations and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. The primary non-IFRS financial measures utilized by the Company include adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA is non-IFRS financial measure which the Company defines as net profit plus amortization, impairment, interest expense, tax expense, share-based compensation expense and unrealized foreign exchange loss (gain).

To supplement the Company's financial statements presented on an IFRS basis, we believe that these non-IFRS measures provide useful information about the Company's core operating results and thus are appropriate to enhance the overall understanding of the Company's past financial performance and its prospects for the future. These adjustments to the Company's IFRS results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of the Company's underlying operational results and trends and performance. Management uses these non-IFRS measures to evaluate the Company's financial results, develop budgets, manage expenditures, and determine employee compensation. The presentation of additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for or superior to net (loss) earnings or net (loss) earnings per share determined in accordance with IFRS.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT.

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
"At our booth we are showing how to provide trust in the Internet of Things. Trust is where everything starts to become secure and trustworthy.

Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices. To retrofit existing programs across all these devices using traditional programming methods is very costly and time consuming – often prohibitively so.

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
