"LuxeYard's third quarter was pivotal for our future development," said LuxeYard, Inc. COO Jerry Wilkerson.  "After evaluating the operating metrics of the company's numerous divisions, we have been able to refocus our efforts on those verticals which are both profitable and consistent with our core strengths. LuxeYard is dedicated to reducing our operational burn while increasing internal efficiencies to boost revenue, margins, and shareholder value."

Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results and Fourth Quarter 2012 Outlook

Total revenue for the third quarter was $574,381, a decrease of 19% from the prior quarter, due to the termination of our Management Service Agreements with Jaxon International, LLC and Ferris Holdings Co.  Total Operating expenses were $3,247,076 million in Q3, compared to $7,622,999 in Q2, due primarily to decreased SG&A costs, which included expenses related to: payroll, advertising, and decreases in the fair market value of stock issued for services provided by various vendors.  Additionally, the Company recognized $6.05 million in gains on derivatives, triggered by a decrease in the market value of its common shares, as required by GAAP.  Giving effect to these items, net income was $3.59 million, equal to $(0.04) per diluted share.

The Company's third quarter 2012 was focused on improving internal efficiencies to reduce operational burn, while continuing to provide customers with access to a deep product-mix and a robust shopping experience.  To this end, the Company enacted the following changes to further increase profitability:

  • Reduced its workforce to decrease payroll liability
  • Appointment of Amir Mireskandari (Chairman of LuxeYard, Inc. Board of Directors) as interim CEO
  • Appointment of two new members to the Board of Directors
  • Termination of Management Service Agreements, and related acquisition plans of unprofitable entities
  • Shifting focus to Home Furnishings, Decor, Accessories, and Art
  • Increasing product offerings within the home vertical by combining static categories and flash sale events
  • Removal of membership requirement for retail consumer purchases
  • Developing a high-end, private label LY Brand line of upholstery items to supplement the product-mix
  • Expanding TradeYardUSA.com (B2B division) and the TradeYard brand

"We are confident LuxeYard will continue to attract customer sales within a saturated landscape by offering retail consumers high-quality, customizable items at competitive prices, along with our standard flash-sale events" added LuxeYard, Inc.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter.

Cloud applications are seeing a deluge of requests to support the exploding advanced analytics market. “Open analytics” is the emerging strategy to deliver that data through an open data access layer, in the cloud, to be directly consumed by external analytics tools and popular programming languages. An increasing number of data engineers and data scientists use a variety of platforms and advanced analytics languages such as SAS, R, Python and Java, as well as frameworks such as Hadoop and Spark...

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists discussed...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
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...
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand.

They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
