Revenue for the three-months ended December 31, 2012 was $1.10 million compared to $787 thousand in the three-month period ended December 31, 2011, an increase of 39%. Project revenue made up 66% of total revenue; the remaining revenue came from follow on sales to existing customers.

Bookings for the quarter were $1.09 million up 7% compared to $1.02 million in the three-month period ended December 31, 2011.

At December 31, 2012 Vigil had a backlog of approximately $2.76 million (including $875 thousand in deposits and progress billings, recorded as deferred revenue on the balance sheet) a 33% increase compared to approximately $2.08 million (including $611 thousand in deposits and progress billings, recorded as deferred revenue on the balance sheet) at December 31, 2011. At December 31, 2012, Vigil's backlog included 37 projects at varying stages of installation and progress billing with an average project size of $75 thousand. This was an increase over the 23 projects with an average value of $91 thousand in the three months ended December 31, 2011.

The gross margin percentage for the three months ended December 31, 2012 was 50% compared to 47% for the three months ended December 31, 2011. Gross margin was slightly higher than management's usual expectations of margins of between 42% and 47%.

Expenditures for the three months ended December 31, 2012 were $424 thousand, down 6% from $452 thousand for the period ended December 31, 2011. Expenses while down quarter over quarter were up to more standard levels reflecting a gradual return to regular hours as business activity increases.

Non-IFRS Measure

For the three months ended December 31, 2012, we are disclosing Adjusted EBITDA, a non-IFRS financial measure, as a supplementary indicator of operating performance. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income before, interest, income taxes, amortization, stock based compensation and currency gains or losses including derivative foreign exchange differences. We are presenting the non-IFRS financial measure in our filings because we use it internally to make strategic decisions, forecast future results and to evaluate our performance and because we believe that our current and potential investors and analysts use the measure to assess current and future operating results and to make investment decisions. It is a non-IFRS measure, may not be comparable to other companies and it is not intended as a substitute for IFRS measures.
