Wayside Technology Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: WSTG) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2012. The results will be discussed in a conference call to be held on Friday, February 1, 2013 at 10:00 AM Eastern time. The dial-in telephone number is (866) 793-1341 and the pass code is "WSTG." This conference call will be available via live webcast -- in listen-mode only -- at www.earnings.com. A replay will also be available on the company's website at www.waysidetechnology.com.

"The fourth quarter was our best quarter in 2012. Revenues, gross profit, income from operations and net income all contributed to deliver our best quarter in 2012," said Simon F. Nynens, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Our TechXtend division performed exceptionally well in Q4 with Lifeboat Distribution delivering solid results. Overall, we grew our product line offerings as we continue to pursue our mission to become the most trusted and respected IT provider in our industry."

Cash and marketable securities amounted to $14.2 million, representing 44% of equity as of December 31, 2012. Working capital amounted to $19.6 million, representing 61% of equity as of December 31, 2012.

Net sales for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2012 increased 15%, or $11.2 million, to $85.5 million compared to $74.2 million for the same period in 2011. Net sales for the fourth quarter of 2012 for our Lifeboat Distribution segment were $58.5 million compared to $55.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, representing an increase of $3.4 million or 6%. Net sales for the fourth quarter of 2012 for our TechXtend segment were $26.9 million compared to $19.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, representing an increase of $7.8 million or 41%.

Net sales for the year ended December 31, 2012 increased 19%, or $46.9 million, to $297.1 million compared to $250.2 million in 2011. Total sales for our Lifeboat Distribution segment in 2012 were $217.3 million compared to $192.7 million in 2011, representing an increase of $24.6 million or 13%. Total sales for the TechXtend segment in 2012 amounted to $79.7 million, compared to $57.4 million in 2011, representing an increase of $22.3 million or 39%.

The increase in net sales for the three month and full year ended December 31, 2012, compared to the same periods in 2011, was mainly a result of strengthening of our account penetration, our continued focus on the expanding virtual infrastructure-centric business, our solution focus selling and an increase in large deals on extended payment terms.

Gross Profit for each of the fourth quarters ended December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 was $7.0 million. Gross profit for our Lifeboat Distribution segment for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $4.5 million compared to $5.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, representing a 10% decrease. Gross profit for our TechXtend segment was $2.6 million compared to $2.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, representing a 23% increase. Vendor rebates and discounts for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 amounted to $0.6 million compared to $0.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2011.

Gross Profit for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $23.9 million compared to $23.2 million in 2011, a 3% increase. Gross profit for our Lifeboat Distribution segment was $15.8 million compared to $16.8 million in 2011, representing a 6% decrease. Gross profit for our TechXtend segment was $8.1 million compared to $6.4 million in 2011, representing a 25% increase. Vendor rebates and discounts for the year ended December 31, 2012 amounted to $1.8 million compared to $2.9 million for 2011. Gross profit margin (gross profit as a percentage of net sales) for 2012 was 8.0% compared to 9.3% in 2011.

The increase in gross profit dollars and the decrease in gross profit margin were primarily caused by the sales growth within our Lifeboat Distribution and TechXtend segments, offset in part, by continued pressure on discounts and rebates earned and by competitive pricing pressure in both segments. The decrease in gross profit margin was also impacted by having won several large bids, including transactions on extended payment terms, based on aggressive pricing which we plan to continue.

Total selling, general, and administrative ("SG&A") expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $4.2 million compared to $4.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. Total SG&A expenses for 2012 were $15.4 million compared to $14.6 million in 2011, representing an increase of $0.8 million. This increase is primarily the result of an increase in sales commissions for our TechXtend segment due to our growth in this segment, the addition of employees in sales, finance and operations to support business growth and higher professional fees.

Net income and diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $1.8 million and $0.39, respectively, compared to $2.0 million and $0.43, respectively for the fourth quarter of 2011. Net income and diluted earnings per share for 2012 were $5.5 million and $1.19, respectively, compared to $5.5 million and $1.20, respectively in 2011.

On January 30, 2013, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $.16 per share of its common stock payable February 22, 2013 to shareholders of record on February 12, 2013.

"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 3rd International @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo – to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY – is now accepting Hackathon proposals. Hackathon sponsorship benefits include general brand exposure and increasing engagement with the developer ecosystem. At Cloud Expo 2014 Silicon Valley, IBM held the Bluemix Developer Playground on November 5 and ElasticBox held the DevOps Hackathon on November 6. Both events took place on the expo floor. The Bluemix Developer Playground, for developers of all levels, highlighted the ease of use 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...
There's Big Data, then there's really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, discussed how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines...
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 Internet of Things promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
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...
DevOps Summit 2015 New York, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
The 3rd International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that its Call for Papers is now open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
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. The difference ...

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...
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 ...
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.
