SENSIO Reports its Financial Results for Second Quarter 2012-2013

Growth of deferred revenue linked to the consumer electronic market is maintained as well as the reduction of quarterly loss

MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 01/25/13 -- SENSIO Technologies Inc. ("SENSIO" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:SIO) presented today its financial results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2012-2013. During this quarter, the Corporation's revenues growth from consumer electronics continued totaling $84,867 compared to $61,226 for the same quarter of the previous year, an increase of $23,641. The increase of revenue coming from consumer market is explained by the signing of new agreements as well as by the revenue growth from previously signed agreements. Total revenues for the period totaled $92,433 compared to $109,702 for the same quarter of the previous year, a decrease of $ 17,269 or 15.7%. Although the total revenue is in decline following the decrease of revenues from the Live 3D market, the Corporation was able to reduce its losses of 172 112$ or 14.6% thanks to the cost control of operational expenses. Finally, the deferred revenues for this quarter passed from $555,765 on May 31st, 2012 to $984,176 on November 30, 2012, an increase of $428,411. These revenues will be recognized progressively, in accordance with the terms of the applicable agreements.

"During the last quarter, our activities on the consumer electronics market generated significant revenue and deferred revenue. This demonstrates once again our capacity to monetize our intellectual property as well as the progress of the corporation and its objectives in a growing 3D industry" explained Nicholas Routhier, President and CEO. "The successful pursuit of the development of 3DGO! has allowed us to launch the testing phase of 3DGO and announce our collaboration with Vizio at the last CES. To that effect, the reactions of the studios, manufacturers and specialised medias having seen the 3DGO! demonstration was excellent and we are very encouraged and excited with regards to the coming official launch on the American market. In view of the reaffirming by many actors of the industry that 3D remains a priority on the market, in conjunction with smart televisions and 4K, we are more convinced than ever that our bold content strategy will be the key of our success in 2013 and that we will be able to demonstrate concrete strategic results to our shareholders in a near future"

Highlights of the second quarter ended November 30, 2012


--  Signature of a licensing agreement with WiLAN over certain patents
    associated with SENSIOr S2D Switch technology; 
--  Closing of a private placement of $3.45M all coming from institutional
    investors; 
--  Launch of testing phase of 3DGO!, the last step before the official
    launch; 
--  Increase of deferred revenue of $428,411 since the beginning of fiscal
    year; 
--  Scaled down operating expenses by 14.6% since the beginning of the
    fiscal year. 

Live 3D - Priority to series of events and network deployment

The Corporation didn't get any revenue from the Live 3D market during the second quarter compared to $24,268 for the same period last year. This decrease of revenues from the Live 3D is explained by the income earned during the second quarter of the previous year following the integration of the SENSIO ® Hi-Fi 3D technology in a product.

"We will continue to evaluate various projects in parallel, however, for now, none of those presented to us respect the profitability criteria we have established internally" indicated Richard LaBerge, Executive Vice-President and Chief of Business Development Officer. "At this time, we are pursuing our investigation using a minimum of internal resources and we stay ready should a project respecting the parameters we have established present itself to us. We remain committed towards Live 3D and we strongly believe that after its launch 3DGO! will represent a major asset for the profiting of Live 3D events, which will allow us to revive this activity more actively. "

Consumer Electronics - pursuing of progress

On the Consumer Electronics side, SENSIO's revenues increased from $61,226 for the second quarter of the previous period to $84,867 for the quarter ended November 30, 2012, an increase of 38.6%. The increase of revenue coming from consumer market is explained by the signing of new agreements as well as by the revenue growth from previously signed agreements.

"The increase of our revenues on the consumer electronic market proves that 3D is pursuing its progression in this important market and confirms the relevance of our plan" said M. Routhier. "During the coming months, we will pursue our efforts on the integration of the SENSIO® Hi-Fi 3D technology in the products of TCL and Hisense, our latest licensees, as well as on the adding of new manufacturer clients in order to increase our penetration rate. This will be strongly facilitated by the launch of 3DGO! which brings an undeniable increased value to 3D products offered in the market by manufacturers who have insufficient content for their clients, the consumers. The recent announcement of the agreement with Vizio pertaining to 3DGO! is a concrete and significant example thereof. By taking into consideration the potential future revenues generated by the agreement with Wi-Lan for the S2D Switch, by the current and future licensees of SENSIO, and by the 3DGO! service in the growing 3D at home market, we can only be optimistic on the future progress of our revenues in this market. "

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, will examine why IT must finally fulfill its role in support of its SBUs or face a new round of...
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate.

One of the biggest challenges when developing connected devices is identifying user value and delivering it through successful user experiences. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kuniavsky, Principal Scientist, Innovation Services at PARC, described an IoT-specific approach to user experience design that combines approaches from interaction design, industrial design and service design to create experiences that go beyond simple connected gadgets to create lasting, multi-device experiences grounded in people's real needs and desires.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy.

In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Bit6 today issued a challenge to the technology community implementing Web Real Time Communication (WebRTC). To leap beyond WebRTC’s significant limitations and fully leverage its underlying value to accelerate innovation, application developers need to consider the entire communications ecosystem.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things.
