Titan Logix Corp. Reports Financial Results for Fiscal 2013 First- Quarter, the Granting of Incentive Options and New Vice President

EDMONTON, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/23/13 -- Titan Logix Corp., (TSX VENTURE:TLA) ("Titan" or the "Company"), an advanced technology industrial instrumentation and controls company today reported its unaudited financial results for the first quarter of its fiscal 2013, ended November 30, 2012.

Summary of Sales Revenue, Gross Profit and Net Earnings:

Sales for the first quarter ended November 30, 2012 were $4,009,955, an increase of 18% from sales of $3,389,692 in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. Gross profit in the three month period was $2,036,577 (51%) compared to $1,579,893 (47%) in the comparable period of the previous fiscal year. Net earnings and comprehensive income was $1,058,560 before tax and $781,257 after tax ($0.03 per diluted share) compared to $630,086 before tax and $622,237 after tax ($0.02 per diluted share) in the same quarter of the previous fiscal year. The increase is tied to the increase in sales for the period. Income tax expense for the previous year's first quarter was minimal compared to fiscal 2013 as the Company had unrecognized deferred tax assets available to reduce income tax expense.

Financial results for the first three months of fiscal 2013 reflect Titan Logix Corp's successful execution of its strategic plan, its continued operational strength and the continued customer demand for its oilfield fluid transport products.

Summary of Operating Expenses:

Total expenses for the first three months of fiscal 2013 were $989,218 compared to $951,945 in the same period a year ago. General and administration expenses were $471,564, compared to $450,698 recorded in the same period of the previous fiscal year. Engineering and development expense was $124,023 compared to $194,107. During the three months ended November 30, 2012, Titan recorded an increase to capitalized product development costs of $143,471 compared to $67,565 in the three months of the previous fiscal year. This increase is a result of additional resources being allocated to new product development rather than sustaining engineering in comparison to the previous year's first quarter. Marketing and sales expense increased from $353,553 in the previous fiscal year's first three months to $404,892 for the first three months of fiscal 2013. As a percentage of sales, operating expenses are 25% for the three month period ended November 30, 2012 compared to 28% for the same period of fiscal 2012. The reduction of operating expenses as a percentage of sales is primarily due to the increase in revenues and also the continued focus on controlling of operating costs.

Working Capital:

At November 30, 2012, working capital was $9,514,113 compared to the August 31, 2012 year-end balance of $8,557,406. Cash and cash equivalents and short term investments were $6,899,143 compared to $5,760,318 at the end of fiscal 2012. Titan does not have any debt except for trade and accrued payables.

Business Outlook:

The customer activity in our primary market has decreased from the peak levels of the previous fiscal year. Sales for this most recent quarter ending November 30, 2012, are lower than the previous three quarters (second, third and fourth quarter of fiscal 2012). This market correction is expected to continue to have an impact on our sales into the next quarter. We plan to address this correction by continuing to focus on increasing our market share.

Additional Information:

Titan Logix Corp.'s unaudited financial statements and management's discussion and analysis for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 as well as its audited financial statements and management's discussion and analysis for its fiscal year ended August 31, 2012 are available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and on the company's website, www.titanlogix.com

About Titan Logix Corp.:

Founded in 1979, Titan Logix Corp. ("Titan" or "the Company") is a high technology company specializing in Research and Development (R&D), manufacturing and marketing of advanced technology fluid management solutions. The Company's products include Guided Wave Radar (GWR) gauges for level measurement and overfill prevention (particularly for use in mobile tanker applications), level gauges for storage tanks, burner management for oilfield heaters, and communication systems for remote alarming and control. The products are currently used in the oil and gas, waste fluid collection, chemical and aviation industries. These technologies and their derivatives under development are applicable to a variety of additional markets which Titan plans to expand into at the appropriate time. A common practice in many of these markets is the use of manual methods for measurement and control.

Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along with a steady stream of well-publicized data breaches, only add to the uncertainty

PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add scalable realtime functionality with minimal effort and cost.”
The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly in the process of breaking from its heretofore relatively obscure enterprise applications (such as plant floor control and supply chain management) and going mainstream into the consumer space. More and more creative folks are interconnecting everyday products such as household items, mobile devices, appliances and cars, and unleashing new and imaginative scenarios. We are seeing a lot of excitement around applications in home automation, personal fitness, and in-car entertainment and this excitement will bleed into other areas. On the commercial side, m...

Every innovation or invention was originally a daydream. You like to imagine a “what-if” scenario. And with all the attention being paid to the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) you don’t have to stretch the imagination too much to see how this may impact commercial and homeowners insurance. We’re beyond the point of accepting this as a leap of faith. The groundwork is laid. Now it’s just a matter of time. We can thank the inventors of smart thermostats for developing a practical business application that everyone can relate to. Gone are the salad days of smart home apps, the early chalkb...
In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
With several hundred implementations of IoT-enabled solutions in the past 12 months alone, this session will focus on experience over the art of the possible.

The Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) market will grow to $6.4B by 2018. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Seth Bostock, CEO of IndependenceIT, will begin by walking the audience through the evolution of Workspace as-a-Service, where it is now vs. where it going. To look beyond the desktop we must understand exactly what WaaS is, who the users are, and where it is going in the future. IT departments, ISVs and service providers must look to workflow and automation capabilities to adapt to growing demand and the rapidly changing workspace model.
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
