Co-CEOs Emmanuel Mounouchos and George Rossolatos announced Avante Logixx Inc.'s results for the quarter and nine month period ended December 31, 2012. The Company's financial performance continued to show marked improvement, with significant increases in revenues and gross profit, as well as continued profitability. Revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 amounted to $1.71 million as compared to $1.42 million for the same quarter in the previous fiscal year, a net growth of 20.7%, while revenues for the nine month period registered a 15.3% increase to $4.67 million as compared to $4.05 million for the same period last year.

The Company has been focused on a return to profitability for the last 5 quarters by focusing on organic growth in the security market, while continuing to target cost and process efficiencies. The first three quarters indicate annualized growth rates of 11% to Avante's rapid alarm response customer base and 6.4% to its monitoring accounts base. While growing this segment, the Company continues to try to develop new security solutions to existing and new corporate customers. For example, Avante Intelligent Perimeter Protection ("AIPP") is Avante's latest offering, which comprises both Intrusion detection and Video Analytics, using a combination of algorithms to learn the environment is focused on, so as to detect and immediately alert the Response team of any intrusions into the camera view. This has helped Avante prevent intrusions even before they occur. Gross profit grew by 21.7% for the quarter and 29.8% for the nine month period, while Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter and the nine month period improved to $112,530 as compared to ($4,013) for the same period last year. The Company registered a profit of $85,395 for the quarter as compared to a loss of $46,495 in the same quarter last year, while net profit for the nine month period was $75,536 as compared to a net loss of $497,337 for the same period last year.

The company has no debt and effective working capital management has ensured that the Company has not had to utilize its operating line of credit in over 2 years. Management believes that there are significant opportunities for the Company to consolidate and further improve its market share, which would result in sustained profitability.
