PNI Digital Media Reports Fiscal 2012 Full Year and Fourth Quarter Financial Results

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."

--  Announced a new multi-year agreement with Tesco PLC.

    Corporation. 
--  Launched a new series of mobile apps with Tesco, Costco, Sam's Club and
    CVS/pharmacy. 
--  Announced second generation of PNI Connected Kiosk(TM) software. 
--  Launched a new business printing website with Costco Wholesale Canada

    behalf of our retail partners, an improvement of 4.9% from the same
    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
    equivalents and no debt.

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.

@ThingsExpo Stories
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, will introduce the technologies required for implementing these ideas and some early experiments performed in the Kurento open source software community in areas ...
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo.

How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
As more and more data is generated from a variety of connected devices, the need to get insights from this data and predict future behavior and trends is increasingly essential for businesses. Real-time stream processing is needed in a variety of different industries such as Manufacturing, Oil and Gas, Automobile, Finance, Online Retail, Smart Grids, and Healthcare. Azure Stream Analytics is a fully managed distributed stream computation service that provides low latency, scalable processing of streaming data in the cloud with an enterprise grade SLA. It features built-in integration with Azur...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
