65% Revenue Increase
CALGARY, Nov. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Ridgeline Energy Services Inc. ("Ridgeline" or the "Company") (TSXV: RLE, OTCQX: RGDEF, FSE: RL7) an energy services and water treatment technology company, today announced the financial results for its second quarter of fiscal year 2013 ending September 30, 2012.
Tony Ker, CEO of Ridgeline Energy Services Inc. "We are pleased to announce a 65% increase in second quarter revenues for 2013 ($5.3 million) compared to second quarter 2012 ($3.4 million). Compared with the first quarter revenues of 2013 ($3.4 million) the second quarter revenue is up 56% ($5.3 million). Furthermore, the first quarter 2013 loss of $2.98 million has been reduced by $1.43 million to $1.55 million for the second quarter 2013. This compares with a loss of $0.03 per share in the first quarter 2013 to a $0.01 per share loss in the second quarter 2013.
Moreover, included in the net loss of $1.55 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2013 are non-cash charges of approximately $0.93 million pertaining to the amortization of intangible assets and property, plant, and equipment, and $0.24 million pertaining to non-cash stock based compensation expense. These non-cash expenses total $1.17 million. Cash used in operations before the effect of working capital changes is $0.38 million
I am very proud to report that all of our operating divisions are now cash flow positive, and our water division has doubled revenues, quarter over quarter.
The Company has continued to invest in water treatment facilities, manufacturing capacity, and installation capability. We are now at a stage where all the components necessary to grow the company are in place. Our business continues its rapid growth by focusing daily on execution. Our annual revenue run rate of our waste water treatment facilities continues to grow and is now approaching a $10 million run rate. Our Santa Fe Springs property continues its aggressive growth and we look for growth in our oil and gas segment, with long term contracts now in place."
"Excitement is building in our oil and gas segment due to the signing of a five year contract by our long time major oil and gas customer in Texas. Our contract calls for minimums of 2,500 barrels per day, and our Leonard Shale location will greatly exceed that minimum. We also look to launch systems in the Red Hills Texas area and in Western Pennsylvania in the coming year. Our continued research is showing that the oil and gas industry as a whole is slowly tipping in favor of broad based water recycling. While slowly developing, our long term view is for higher demand and higher prices for Ridgeline water systems, and water management, which includes significant storage opportunities."
Ridgeline Environment is on track for over $11.0 million dollars of revenue in 2013 and improved profitability. Ridgeline GreenFill will have added another treatment site at Youngstown in Alberta and is expected to grow steadily. The GreenFill wet waste water treatment capability pioneered at Red Cliff will add significant growth to GreenFill revenues for each of the now 5 GreenFill sites.
The Company's balance sheet was highlighted by an increase in its cash balance to $7.8 million, compared to $4.6 million at the beginning of the year. Total equity also increased to $41.6 million from $34.6 million at the beginning of the year.
Ridgeline expects the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 revenues to be in the range of $6 million to $6.5 million, an increase of 10% to 20% from the third quarter of the previous fiscal year. Continued increases in revenues are also expected in the fourth quarter. The growth in revenues is expected to be largely driven by the Company's water treatment segment, specifically operations at its Santa Fe Springs, California waste water treatment facility.
The Company will be conducting a conference call at 8:30 a.m. ET on Tuesday, November 27, 2012. Interested parties can access the conference call by dialing (877) 317-6789 or (412) 317-6789, or listen via a live Internet webcast on the Company's website at www.ridgelinecanada.com.

Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost ...

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
