TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 -- TransGaming Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TNG) ("TransGaming" or the "Company") today reported its second quarter fiscal year 2013 results. The Company's unaudited interim consolidated financial statements for the three and six months ended November 30, 2012 and Management's Discussion and Analysis have been filed and are available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
TransGaming's second quarter of fiscal 2013 was an exciting period with a strong start to the fiscal year. Highlights during and subsequent to the quarter include:
-- The Company generated $1.9 million for the quarter or revenue growth of 43% for the quarter over F12, representing the third strongest quarter ever in the Company's history. -- The strong Q2 has resulted in year to date revenue of $3.4 million or growth of 48% over the same period in the previous fiscal year. -- Cash outflows continued to decline in Q2 F13 as a result of management's initiatives to curtail spending and preserve cash. -- GameTree TV accounted for 40% of this year's revenue to date and contributed $1.0 million in gross margin to the distribution segment. -- TransGaming showcased GameTree TV and multi-screen gameplay at The 2013 International CES in Las Vegas with its internally developed World Poker Tour ® ("WPT") game. -- GameTree TV underwent a major update in December, with enhanced user functionality and a subscription only model. -- TransGaming secured a milestone patent for key proprietary technology that forms the core of TransGaming's SwiftShader product. SwiftShader is the world's fastest pure-software 3D graphics renderer, and has been licensed by industry-leading technology providers. -- The 2012 MMO hit game Guild Wars 2 was well received on the Mac and is exceeding user targets and will drive revenue in the coming quarters.
Commenting on the results, Vikas Gupta, CEO & President of TransGaming stated:
"I'm very pleased with our second quarter results which are both a clear demonstration of the market traction we are gaining with our products but also evidence of management's determination to reduce costs towards achieving profitability soon. This was an important quarter as we continued our restructuring of the company towards achieving a more streamlined organization with two vertical P&L based business units: the Graphics & Portability Group, and the Digital Media Group. This cost reduction has continued into Q3 and the full impact of our restructuring will be evident in the coming months.
On the business front, we are actively signing new licensing agreements for our core technology, negotiating GameTree TV distribution agreements with large service providers and device makers, and we are gaining new subscribers at higher ARPUs. We believe the business is surging forward with a new and effectively manageable cost-structure and the company has strong viability and tremendous growth prospects on the near horizon."

Everyone talks about continuous integration and continuous delivery but those are just two ends of the pipeline. In the middle of DevOps is continuous testing (CT), and many organizations are struggling to implement continuous testing effectively. After all, without continuous testing there is no delivery. And Lab-As-A-Service (LaaS) enhances the CT with dynamic on-demand self-serve test topologies. CT together with LAAS make a powerful combination that perfectly serves complex software developm...

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...

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.

Whether you like it or not, DevOps is on track for a remarkable alliance with security. The SEC didn’t approve the merger. And your boss hasn’t heard anything about it.

In his session at DevOps Summit, Frank Bunger, VP of Customer Success at ScriptRock, will discuss how this cathartic moment will propel the DevOps movement from such stuff as dreams are made on to a prac...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Trel...
