Avcorp announces 2012 Annual Financial Results

Trading Symbol: AVP

VANCOUVER, March 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Avcorp Industries Inc. (TSX: AVP) (the "Company" or "Avcorp") today announced its financial results for the year ended December 31, 2012.

During the year ended December 31, 2012, the Company recorded income from operations of $24,002,000 on $89,337,000 revenue, as compared to a $362,000 operating loss on $86,018,000 revenue for the preceding year; and net income for the current year of $20,641,000 as compared to a net loss of $2,452,000 for the year ended December 31, 2011.

On November 16, 2012, Avcorp received the determination of an appointed arbitration panel constituted to adjudicate outstanding issues relating to cost reimbursements and compensation payable to Avcorp in connection with the transition of Cessna Aircraft Company ("Cessna") production work back to Cessna and other suppliers. A binding arbitration award was delivered to the Company on November 16, 2012. The quantum of damages was assessed by an arbitration panel at $27,391,000.  The arbitration award, net of associated costs, amounted to $21,548,000.

On November 26, 2012 Cessna filed a complaint in the United States District Court For The District Of Kansas seeking to vacate the award as a manifest disregard for the law and in violation of public policy.

On December 21, 2012 Avcorp filed a memorandum in support of a motion to confirm final arbitration award, and dismiss the complaint in the United States District Court For The District Of Kansas.

Current year revenues have increased from the preceding year primarily as a result of significant increases in sales to The Boeing Company (Boeing) and BAE Systems (Operations) Limited (BAE), offset by the wind-down of Cessna programs. During the third quarter 2012, the Company renewed its long-term agreement with the Boeing Commercial Airplane Group (Boeing CA) which is forecasted to provide in excess of $83 million revenue over the next five years. Start-up and commencement of production deliveries for BAE Systems (Operations) Limited (BAE) F35 program has also contributed to an overall $146 million increase in order backlog during the current year.

Cash flows from operating activities during the year ended December 31, 2012 utilized $3,603,000 of cash as compared to utilizing $924,000 of cash during the year ended December 31, 2011.  The Company has a working capital surplus of $34,819,000 as at December 31, 2012 which has significantly increased from the December 31, 2011 $14,663,000 surplus, as a result of the binding arbitration award.  The Company's accumulated deficit as at December 31, 2012 was $55,375,000 (December 31, 2011: $76,016,000).

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?

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. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Automation is enabling enterprises to design, deploy, and manage more complex, hybrid cloud environments. Yet the people who manage these environments must be trained in and understanding these environments better than ever before.

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...
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...
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...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications?

The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors.

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. ...
