HONG KONG, CHINA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/07/14 --
OTCQX: NETDY NetDimensions (Holdings) Limited ("NetDimensions" or the "Company") Trading Update for the 12 months to 31 December 2013 NetDimensions (AIM: NETD; OTCQX: NETDY), a global provider of performance, knowledge, and learning management systems, is pleased to provide a trading update for the 12 months to 31 December 2013 (the"period"). Sales revenue and invoiced sales for the period are likely to be substantially higher than for the prior year. Company management expect to report full-year 2013 GAAP revenue comfortably in excess of the consensus forecast of US$15.8M and to report invoiced sales of some US$17.6M. These results were helped by a particularly strong performance in the second half with both sales revenue and invoiced sales growing by more than 20% from the second half of 2012. In addition, the full year loss before interest and certain non-cash items will likely be substantially lower than current market expectations. The Company ended 2013 with no debt, more than US$7.7M in cash and some US$6.6M in short-term receivables. The Board is particularly encouraged by the performance of the Company's Software as a Service ("SaaS") business. SaaS sales revenue in the period is likely to be in the region of US$6.1M (2012: US$4.5M), an increase of 36% over the prior year. The shift to SaaS is a result of the Board's strategy to position the Company as a primarily SaaS business with the benefits of more predictable recurring revenue and greater opportunities for up-selling. The Company continues to target clients in high-consequence industries in line with the business plan. We are pleased to report that we added 67 new clients in the period, including Royal Caribbean Cruises Limited, KPMG LLC, General Mills (Haagen-Dazs), Omron, Jaguar Land Rover Limited, Globus Medical, Babcock, BCD Travel, Digicel Group, Emdeon, The Nature Conservancy and Musculoskeletal Transplant Foundation. The new clients operate in a variety of industries, including high-consequence industries such as transportation and logistics, automobile manufacturing and distribution, law enforcement, financial services, precision engineering, life sciences and healthcare. The deferred revenue balance at the end of 2013 will likely be in the region of US$7.6M (2012: US$6.1M), an increase of 25% over the prior year. Management expect almost all of the 2013 deferred revenue to convert to GAAP revenue in 2014, providing the Business with a solid start to the new year."The sales revenue and invoiced sales numbers for the second half were very encouraging, in fact substantially ahead of the prior year numbers," said Chief Executive Officer Jay Shaw. "These figures give us confidence that the plan we started to implement in May 2013 can and will deliver substantial revenue growth over the next few years," he added. "I am particularly pleased with the performance of our SaaS learning, performance and analytics offerings. We intend to grow these revenue lines aggressively."

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
