Wegener Corporation Reports Final Results for First Quarter of Fiscal Year 2013

JOHNS CREEK, GA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/06/13 -- Wegener Corporation (PINKSHEETS: WGNR), a provider of products for television, audio and data distribution networks worldwide, today announced final operating results for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 ended November 30, 2012.

Final operating results for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 were revenues of approximately $1.4 million and a net loss of approximately $(408,000) or $(0.03) per share, compared to revenues of approximately $1.4 million and a net loss of approximately $(857,000) or $(0.07) per share for the same period in fiscal 2012.

Wegener Corporation's eighteen-month and total multi-year backlog was approximately $2.5 million and $2.7 million at November 30, 2012, compared to $3.6 million and $3.6 million at December 2, 2011. Bookings for the first quarter of 2013 were approximately $784,000 compared to approximately $884,000 for the same period in fiscal 2012.

First quarter bookings were characterized by continuing support from domestic customers and customers in Latin America and Europe who continue to maintain and expand their networks utilizing Wegener products and control technology.

"I am very optimistic about near-term opportunities which include continued growth in Latin America and a stronger presence in the domestic digital signage market," stated Ken Leffingwell, Vice President Worldwide Sales. "Projects that have been stalled in the sluggish economy are showing renewed activity while new projects are being uncovered. Our efforts over the past year to develop and support sales channels are beginning to pay off."

"Wegener is very focused on the upcoming Digital Signage Expo in Las Vegas and we will be making some exciting announcements in the next few weeks prior to the show. These include both new product introductions as well as technology partnerships," stated Troy Woodbury, President and CEO of Wegener Corporation.

"Although our financial results do not yet reflect it, we are making progress. We will be reporting an operating loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2013, and our cash flow continues to be very tight. We are keeping tight control on expenses as we seek additional financing for the Company."

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, will provide an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud.

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting.

Participants received the download information, scripts, and complete end-t...
