VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/11/13 -- Pyng Medical Corp. (TSX VENTURE:PYT) today announced financial and operating results for the fiscal year that ended September 30, 2012. All amounts are in Canadian dollars unless stated otherwise.
The Company reported total sales of $4,540,399 for fiscal year 2012 (October 1, 2011 - September 30, 2012), down 25% from the $6,050,421 reported for fiscal year 2011. This revenue decline is primarily attributed to significant cutbacks in purchases from the U.S.A. military during this period, assumed to be related to ongoing Federal budget concerns as well as changing military conditions in Afghanistan and elsewhere. International (outside United States) revenues grew 11% during fiscal year 2012. Gross margin of $2,780,369 was reported for fiscal year 2012, down to 61% of revenue from 64% one year ago. This small reduction was primarily attributed to higher raw material cost during the year. Total operating expenses decreased 24% to $2,872,780 from $3,790,992 a year ago, primarily related to improved efficiencies in parallel to cost-cutting actions the Company has taken in the midst of declining revenues.
The Company also reported a net loss of $1,049,452 for fiscal year 2012, which included a net loss of $1,229,440 recorded related to product CRIC. Primarily due to the impact of this loss, loss per share expanded to $0. 07 for fiscal year 2012 compared to net loss of $0.03 per share for fiscal year 2011. Earnings before interest, depreciation, amortization and taxes ("EBITDA") from continuing operations decreased to $488,637 during the year (11% of revenues) compared with EBITDA of $555,962, (9% of revenues) for fiscal year 2011.
For the fourth quarter ended September 30, 2012, the Company recorded sales of $957,032, slightly lower than $995,611 reported for the comparative quarter of fiscal year 2011. A net loss of $1,229,440 was recorded related to product CRIC during this quarter, which was comprised of impairment loss of $1,856,315 on intangible assets offset by the other long-term liabilities write-off of $626,875. As a result, total expenses increased by 28% to $1,917,652 from $1,497,055 reported a year ago and the net loss rose to $1,042,510 from $860,400 for the comparative quarter of last year.
As at September 30, 2012, the Company had a working capital deficiency of $196,463, which represents a decrease of $310,173, compared to working capital surplus of $113,710 reported on September 30, 2011. The decline in working capital was primarily caused by a decrease in revenues combined with redevelopment costs related to the FASTx product that was recalled in November 2010 (estimated at US$2,000,000 in total redevelopment costs going back to November 2010).
The Company is currently pursuing additional debt and/or equity financing to fund working capital needs. Management hopes to secure the necessary financing through the combination of new credit facilities and issuance of new equity or convertible debt instruments. There can be no assurance that these initiatives will be successful.
Full audited financial results for fiscal year ended September 30, 2012 are available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

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...

You need to discover patterns that are repeatable in vast quantities of data, understand their meaning, and implement scalable monitoring across multiple data streams in order to monetize the discoveries and insights. Motif discovery and deep learning platforms are emerging to visualize sensor data, to search for patterns and to build application that can monitor real time streams efficiently.

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
