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."

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dr. Robert Cohen, an economist and senior fellow at the Economic Strategy Institute, presented the findings of a series of six detailed case studies of how large corporations are implementing IoT. The session explored how IoT has improved their economic performance, had major impacts on business models and resulted in impressive ROIs. The companies covered span manufacturing and services firms. He also explored servicification, how manufacturing firms shift from se...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
