TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 01/14/14 -- MCW Energy Group Limited (TSX VENTURE: MCW) ("MCW"), a Canadian holding company involved in fuel distribution and the creation of oil sands extraction technology, has reported and filed its corporate financial statements for the year ending August 31st, 2013.
MCW ended its fiscal year end with net revenues of US$431,932,384 from its fuel distribution sales generated by its Fuels Division. This represents an increase of US$68.6 million or 19% over the same period of 2012 (2012 - US$363,300,000 and 2011 - US$241,500,000). The increase in sales was primarily due to an additional 20 million gallons of fuel during the fiscal year of 2013 to August 31st, 2013. Gross profit for this period represented 1.9% of net revenues (2012 gross profit stood at 1.8%), which has remained consistent and in line with fuel distribution industry averages. MCW believes that it will continue to improve its gross profits by increasing the number of branded service stations under its various comprehensive premier branding programs (76, Valero and Alliance), as well as several value-added programs such as rebranding, state-of-the-art accounting systems, credit card processing, inventory control systems and price management services.
Mr. Karlo Vartan, MBA, BSc., MCW's Chief Financial Officer stated, "Sales increases year over year are primarily a result of an increased customer base in our Fuels Division, due to our continued aggressive marketing efforts, as well as the acquisition of new branded service station accounts. The increase in the net loss between 2011 and 2012 was most significantly due to a one-time charge to bad debt expense of approximately US$2.3 million to reflect old uncollectible accounts. MCW's asset base has increased substantially during 2013 due to the construction of its initial oil sands extraction plant now underway in Asphalt Ridge, Utah. Assets have also increased throughout recent years via the acquisition of ownership of a gas station transferred from shareholders of MCW, acquisition of branded accounts from Westco Petroleum Distributors Inc., and the assignment of Valero-Branded Reseller Distribution Agreements from Ocean Pacific Fuels Inc. (acquisitions were reported in previous Press Releases). Due to the increase in MCW's fuel distribution operations, MCW is able to acquire greater supplier rebates and more advantageous product pricing from refineries."

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
