Zedi Amends Q3-2013 Financial Statements for Non-Cash Amortization Expense

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/17/14 -- Zedi Inc. (the "Company" or "Zedi") (TSX VENTURE: ZED). Today, Zedi filed amended financial statements as at and for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013. While completing a systems conversion for capital asset tracking during Q4 of 2013, the Company discovered an error in the amortization of certain internally generated intangible assets which had resulted in the under-amortization of those assets over a number of years. While the impact on any individual reporting period was not considered significant, the cumulative impact of $1.49 million as of September 30, 2013 was deemed significant enough to cause the Company to elect to restate the most recent financial statements as of that date. Management has conducted a complete review of all capital and internally generated intangible assets and the historical calculation of depreciation and amortization to ensure that no further adjustments in this regard will be necessary.

As the error impacts only amortization and deferred tax amounts which are both non-cash in nature, there was no impact on EBITDA(1) or cash flow results previously reported.

The restated Q3 financial statements and MD&A are filed on SEDAR and can be accessed at www.sedar.com or on the Company's website at www.zedi.ca. Note 14 to the amended financial statements details the impact of the restatement, including impact on prior periods and comparative amounts. The impact on the 2013 statement of profit and loss is as follows:

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
Financial Technology has become a topic of intense interest throughout the cloud developer and enterprise IT communities. Accordingly, attendees at the upcoming 20th Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York, June 6-8, 2017, will find fresh new content in a new track called FinTech.
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it?
