Co-CEOs George Rossolatos and Emmanuel Mounouchos announced Avante Logixx Inc.'s results for the quarter ended December 31, 2013. The Company reported strong results driven by growth across all lines of business.

Net income for the quarter was $279,149 as compared to $85,395 for the same quarter in the prior fiscal year. Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $336,941 (December 31, 2012: $112,530). The Company continues to focus on organic growth in the Rapid Alarm Response, Security Monitoring and Installations segments, while developing new security solutions for residential and corporate customers. This was evidenced by growth of approximately 10% in both Alarm Response and Monitoring respectively. Overall growth in recurring security revenue has continued to trend over 10%.

The Avante Intelligent Perimeter Protection ("AIPP"), a recent offering, comprises both Intrusion Detection and Intelligent Video Analytics, using sophisticated software algorithms to study the environment the camera is focused on. When the camera detects an intrusion by an individual, the Avante Control Centre is instantly notified. Avante's response team acts on these alerts immediately, typically arriving at the scene within six minutes or less on average. The AIPP creates a perimeter 'bubble' around homes and businesses, detecting intruders before a break-in attempt occurs. The number of customers using this solution has grown by more than 150% as compared to December 31, 2012.

International Security Travel Advisory Services ("ISTAS") is another recent offering by Avante. With this offering, Avante is working with several multinational companies to ensure that their travelling employees have appropriate protection, transportation services and logistics while travelling to places which are considered to be higher risk environments. ISTAS has shown significant growth in the past year. Revenues from this offering were almost 175% as much as the quarter ended December 31, 2012. ISTAS revenue depends on the international activities of our clients during the period and is not recurring in nature.

Avante's prospects for the remainder of fiscal 2014 continue to be positive. The company's cash balance rose to over $1.5 million at December 31, 2013 with no debt. Management believes that there are significant opportunities for organic growth or for the Company to consolidate and further improve its market share, which would result in increased profitability.
